These are so pretty. I love the combination of buttons and ribbon and a bit of glitter! My mom still uses her old metal sewing basket that still contains the old sewing needle cards and lots of random buttons.

I admire your work Melissa, but it's not something I could ever do! So many details incorporated in your cards and projects, really fun to look at!!

Lovely cards, Melissa. I have a hard time using a colored background for my card base - it's usually white or cream - so it was nice to see you create something with Sweet Blush. Looks like it can be done! ;)

I didn't think it was possible for me to love the Button Bits line any more than I already do, but you did it. You made me love it even MORE! Your post is amazing, Melissa! I just love how you incorporated the felt on your designs. I have yet to use the bicycle image, and I am so in love with how you used it here...and that BEE and the PEA POD??!! Swoooooon! :)


I just love your style, it always puts a smile on my face. THanks for sharing!

Absolutely adorable! The button bits have always been my favorite. Love how you incorporated the banners in the background.


Love what you did with these Melissa! So, SO pretty!!


So so SO pretty... I love your rolled flowers, and all the ways you dressed up the button images - I have the baby set, and it always ends up being such a clean project for me - I love seeing how you made them super vintage and shabby!

These are just darling! I am always so amazed at what you come up with. Love the Harvest Gold felt flowers with the Blush buttons.

I'm running out of words to express how delightful your things are - these are so sweet. And, I have the same button tin memories as you. What a special time it was to spend going thru the buttons while my Mom sewed. I miss it so. Thanks!

Melissa D

Great cards as always. I love how you add a vintage feel to all your work with so much class and elegance.

beautiful, so soft and pretty. love the thoughtfulness behind it.


How funny - I have fond memories of sorting through my mom's button tin as well! I've always adored buttons. And I adore your lovely cards, too. Especially the ones with the little roses.


Love your precious cards Melis I too have great and fond memories of sorting buttons while my Mom sewed. Thanks for the fun thought and the beautiful cards to look at.

Gorgeous very sweet cards!


Oh that yellow felt bow is just exquisite! I especially like the pea pod and bee cards. Absolutely gorgeous colours and attention to detail. thanks for sharing xx


I have a ton of antique buttons, my mother was a dress designer many years ago and I have all her buttons! I am going to go to my new room from and start some projects using my buttons. Thanks for a great idea and a great way to utilize those buttons!


Not sure if you every check, but they have lots of great button craft ideas as well.
