Well, the button factory is busy, busy already this morning.....60 sets of Buttons are baking in the oven to sweet perfection, as I type this update!

* Subscribers-- Your April Buttons Of The Month were all shipped out on Monday! You will be receiving your pretty packages soon!

* For the month of May we have a very special guest designer....MODISH PRINCESS! You may have noticed in my side bar, I have been working with a very talented children's clothing designer to create custom buttons and appliques for her lines. I will be showcasing her designs starting the 1st week of May and throughout the Month. Modish Princess will be hosting a giveaway here as well! Stop by the 2nd week of May to see what you could win for your little princess! Be sure to share with your friends. This is going to be an awesome giveaway!

Well, this is totally off topic.......a cute, but rather *pathetic* pic of Duffy..... He was shivering madly this morning after his bath. I did my best to dry him with my hair dryer..hehe....but the poor guy continued to shiver.

Yes. You see it. I broke out the heating pad and goosedown blanket. AND. his hoodie..

Alas...he was warm. I told you it was a cute/pathetic kind of photo ;)

Have a wonderful day!

Inspiration all the way from France!

It is such a wonderful compliment when my customers take the time out of their busy day to share with me what they have created using my buttons and embellishments. Since I spend all of my time creating these little goodies, my time to create with them has been pretty limited.

So..... Today I thought it would be fun to share some amazing scrapbooking art from Emeline! I love her beautiful, eclectic style and how she incorporates my embellishments in to her work so effortlessly. As you look at her work you will see tiny little surprises and fun details that are so unique and make her scrapbooking truly *art* in my eyes.

So...sit back and enjoy the beautiful artwork of the very talented, Emeline.

Emeline used one of the pretty buttons from the March Buttons Of The Month as an accent piece in her "Happy Easter Card." Just look at all of the details, the eggs nestled in a bed of pink grass and the green trim around the scalloped paper. Just lovely.....

Those eggs are just too sweet!
I love how Emeline layered all the pieces beneath the button!

Curly ribbon.....so lovely and the die cut egg is delish!

Isn't this layout sweet! Perfectly titled, "Life Is Sweet," I love how Emeline put her beautiful pen work to use to create her title.

I created this Strawberry embellishment *just* for Emeline and she couldn't have put it to use any better than she did here! So pretty :)

Love the lace and pen work!

I just love how Emeline used our cupcake embellishment to create a beautiful tag for her vintage cupboard.

I carried these cupcakes in my shop a few months back. I think I'll be adding more soon!

Another beautiful scrapbooking layout ! I love how well our buttons work with Prima's flowers and Emeline shows just that with this layout. I created the adorable pineapple embellishments as a custom order for Emeline. I love how they are peeking out from behind a layer of paper. She also used the Jaune Noir buttons to center her flowers. Emeline captured this photo while in Capri, Italy. Ah....I've been there and seeing this photo brings up so many memories of the day I spent there. Capri is such a lovely place.

Well, I hope this post leaves you feeling inspired. I know I am!
Have a lovely day!
