T for Me: Oh Happy Day!


How can you not fall instantly in love with with T for Me Designs? Her eclectic style comes together to create stunning collections that are begging to be scrapped with! I adore her contribution to The Digi Files this month and I KNOW you will too! Let’s take a closer look at “Every Day Matters” that is included in The Digi Files this month:


This is ONE of SEVEN collections you get when you become a member of The Digi Game this month. You also get an interactive Playbook (in PDF and iBooks formats) that has lots of ideas for using the supplies including techniques, tips, and tricks! All of that, including access to exclusive collaborations every four months you are a member, for only $7.50 total per month!

I am T for Me Designs, and T stands for Terese, might also be tea, even though I love coffee more 😉 My name is Terese Osterholm, living in Sweden with husband and four kids. Three of my own (son, almost 7 years old and twin-daughters, almost 3 years old) and 1 extra (step-daughter, 13 years old).

I love all things crafty! Reading, writing, painting. Always, I have so many different ideas spinning around in my head… Wish there were more hours during the days!





This layout reminds me of so many things! Off course, this is a page for my son´s album, and my kids are my greatest love in life and I will never get tired of making photo books for them!! This photo was taken last summer, our first summer in our new house. We have this huge piece of rock in our garden and when we moved here L didn´t dare to climb it, but now he runs up and down on that big rock and that is no big deal at all! Also, this page is from the Travel Notebook Collab with Val C Designs, and since she is a sweet friend and we had so much fun creating this collab, I will always be reminded of that as well when looking at this page!


I discovered digiscrapping in 2005, when I was trying to make my own “My First Year” Book to my son. I was hooked immediately! Love at first sight! This was the perfect thing for me, I could breastfeed and scrap at the same time!! LOL And no tiny pearls or stickers for a crawling baby to examine (=eat).

Then, I began giving away freebies on my blog, stuff I had experimented my way through in PhotoShop. Templates, hand-drawn elements and patterned papers. Well, I love PhotoShop and I could NOT resist trying designing myself! I emailed a few stores, since the freebies were such a success, and in November 2010 I opened up my very own digishop! Oh Happy Day!

Everydaylife. Colors. Quotes. Photographs. Glossy magazines.

Computer: I have a Nettop ASRock ION 330, 2 GB RAM. 400 GB hard drive space on two drives. Windows XP. Dual Samsung monitors. And an external hard drive on approximately 1000 GB.
Program: Adobe Creative Suite 5. Mostly Photoshop and Illustrator.
Camera: None of my own. This is on my wish list!
Anything Else: I have a Wacom Bamboo and I use it ALL THE TIME!!

When I design, I always have my kit preview up at the same time. When I have finished a paper, element or wordart I immediately add it to the rest and that way I can be sure I am going in the right direction when it comes to colors, matching elements or kinds of patterns. That way I can immediately change the paper or the element when I see it doesn´t fit it with the rest of the kit, and also, I can see which pieces are missing!

When I scrap, I LOVE photo editing, and I always save the edited photo in a folder called “Scrapped pictures” and the original photo goes in the folder where it belongs, I have some kind of system! LOL One folder for each kid and one for holidays and so on. But that way I can easily see which pictures are scrapped and which are not.

Yup, you can tell from my two tips here that my middle-name is Organized. LOL!

I LOVED creating this kit. I love experimenting with the papers here and I also was really pleased with how the wordarts turned out. I always love creating every day kits, I know those can be used over and over again!


My templates have been quite popular. There are some separate packs, some bundles and some photo books. I use templates myself from time to time and I think it is a great starting-point!
