Etsy Store Highlight: TessaAnn & a Give-away!

This week we highlighted some of the team's favorite Etsy finds.
And now I would love to showcase some projects using products made by one of my favorite Etsy sellers, TessaAnn. You really MUST check out her shop since she offers many different homemade items from handcrafted buttons, to layered paper embellishments, to funky photo frames and she even has gift certificates in her store! A perfect gift for a crafter you know AND she takes custom orders. All around fabulousness!

TessaAnn creates these cool mixed material birds. Some are funky, some are more simnple, but they are ALL so cute! I used one of her birds, a 6x6" canvas and a few embellishments to create a wall hanging for my home. It was so easy and I loooove how it turned out.


Supplies: 6x6" canvas, wood grain paper by Cosmo Cricket (Mr. Campy), Green lined paper by GCD Studios, Yellow patterned paper by October Afternoon, alphabet stickers by Making Memories, Zooballoo Cricut cartridge & Cricut, pop dots, blue ribbon. Quote is a Turkish Proverb


And remember those buttons I love so much? I used them as a perfect accent to this page about the joys of being a Mom. The heart & blue striped button are also by Tessa Ann.


Supplies: Scalloped Paper by Pink Paislee, Patterned Paper by GCD Studios, Ribbon by All My Memories, Alphabet Stickers by Bella Blvd, small alphabet stickers by Making Memories, Tags by GCD Studios, Buttons by TessaAnn on Etsy, Zig journaling pen.


I hope you got some creative ideas on how to use your Etsy finds to create beautiful things that make you smile. We will be featuring more projects made from Etsy materials in the future and encourage all of our readers to Buy Homemade. It is a great way to encourage creativity in the field of arts, support other crafters and add distinct beauty to your projects.

I have a $5.00 Gift Card for TessaAnn's shop up for grabs. Leave a comment here by tomorrow (Saturday) at Noon EST to be eligible to win!

And don't forget to drop in tomorrow for a National Scrapbook Day celebration filled with freebies!

I am TessaAnn's #1 fan !!! It's not just because I'm her Mom, it's because she amazes me each time she designs something new. Her buttons and felties are so fabulous for crafts and scrapbooking. I'm so proud that other fans enjoy her masterpieces. She works so hard and is devoted to making her customers happy! Please do not enter me in the contest.

That little bird is so cute! I've followed TessaAnn for a while now because she's a fellow Oregonian but lost track of her after the LSS she worked at closed. Glad to "find" her again.

What a great find - thanks for telling us about TessaAnn's Etsy shop. I love Etsy but it is so big, you could search for days so it is fun hearing about someone else's favorite shops.

Gretchen said...

So cute! Tessa Ann makes the most adorable buttons. :-)

Theresa said...

I had not been on Etsy until I read yesterday's review, so I took a leap and hopped on over to see what was there - whoa, I could have been there all day drooling over the stuff! I did check out TessaAnn's shop, not because her buttons were featured here on TSR (although I did recognize them once I got into her shop), but because I saw some other buttons that made me stop and look. There are some awesome things over at Etsy, and it's great that there is a place where all the great craftspeople can offer their wares, and all us great people can go and buy them! What's not to love?
