Teresa Collins Posh Album

Wow - check this album out!!! It's a Teresa Collins Make & Take from CHA - I was ever lucky to have gotten one of these treasured albums to make. This is a photo of the original cover for her Posh kit. I believe it is a photo of all her girlies in the company - cool, eh? I love the shape of this chipboard album. Finished album size is 6" x 9-1/2" and is held together with metal rings.

I even got an autograph from her - I will treasure this forever!!!

Here's Teresa in front of her booth:

Yay!!! - I got a treasured photo with Teresa.

Here's my version of the Make & Take. 2 pages were made on site and the rest I completed at home. I found some ribbon in my craft room so I added tulle, silver, and white ties to the rings. I think Teresa would be OK with that. I also added the silver glitter using sticky tape (to adhere the glitter). The roses are cut from the sheet of Posh Flower, then popped with dimensionals. The butterflies also have a hint of silver glitter, too.

On the cover inside: I used cute out flowers from sheet of Posh Flower and also the punched out tag holder with tag.

Here's Page 1: I love the crinkle crepe paper around the Fleur which is popped up with dimensionals.....and not yet secured to allow a photo to slip into the spot.

Backside of Page 1: Another punch out with crepe paper embellishment. Room for a photo or two.

Page 2: Cut and layered flower popped with dimnensionals along with crepe paper along the bottom. Slip a photo under the flower.................

Backside of Page 2: cut and popped flowers here, too

Page 3: This is a fold out page. I added the cut roses to the top/bottom of the silhouette tag. More crepe paper along the edge, too.

Here's the page unfolded revealing cut flowers in each corner..............

Backside of page 3: I added the horizontal decorative strip from scraps, the original album had black crepe paper but since I only had white - white it is and looks OK.

Back Cover: Cut flowers popped with dimensionals.

Back Cover:

All paper and punch outs are Teresa Collins Posh Collection
Stampin-Up: Dimensionals

I really enjoyed meeting Teresa and making this new Posh Collection Album.............her booth was full of great new product!!! I was not disappointed at all.
