We’re so excited today to be able to share with you the members of our new Buttons Galore & More design team!

We’d like to thank all of the fabulous designers who applied. It was an honor to review your applications.

In the end, we selected six designers for the team, all immensely talented ladies who work in a variety of different crafts and styles. We look forward to sharing their work with you in the next few months, and hope that you love them as much as we do!

2017 Spring Buttons Galore Team

So, without further ado…here they are…your Spring 2017 Buttons Galore team!

Aimee says: “I come from a long line of women makers. I sleep under quilts that my grandmother made, my head rests on pillowcases that my aunt embroidered, and my memories are full of time spent watching my mom and grandmother create. The majority of my sewing and embroidery skills are self-taught, and I’d like to think there is a little bit of genetic love seeping through.”

Don’t miss our Creativation Booth Projects!

One of our favorite things about attending shows is the chance for our staff and some talented craft designers to show off in our booth the beautiful range of possibility that can be created with Buttons Galore products. So today, for those who weren’t at Creativation, we’re going to give you a peek into our booth at the show to see all of the gorgeous inspiration we shared!

Buttons Galore Creativation 2017 booth

It may have been warm in Arizona, but inside the convention center it was snowing a blizzard in our booth! These snowflakes, created by Buttons Galore staff, show that buttons make gorgeous snowflakes of all sizes from tree ornaments to wall art.

Button Snowflake Wall Art

This American flag wall art piece, also created by Buttons Galore staff, combines our bulk buttons with our 3D decorative star buttons. It’s perfect for holiday decor for occasions like July 4th, or leave it up all year round for a patriotic touch of homespun decor.

Speaking of special occasions, our decorative button grab bags are a beautiful and affordable option for creating decor for events like showers and weddings! This button cake, created by designer Jen Goode, is perfect for decorating a buffet table.

Button Cake Decorations

Love to entertain? Our decorative 3D buttons will make your tea time, cocktail hour, or coffee break oh so elegant! This tray project, by Buttons Galore staff, is quick and easy, too!

And let’s not forget our furry family members! Our booth went to the cats and dogs with these fun frames to display your favorite picture of your pet cat (by me) or dog (by 28 Lilac Lane designer May Flaum). For the instructions for the cat frame, click here.

Button Pet Picture Frames

If you’d rather hang your pet photo on the wall, try out this dog bone wall art project by Buttons Galore staff!

This button monogram is easy to make and perfect for a nursery or kids room! (Click here for instructions.) Or create an ombre heart wall art piece for someone special to remember you by. (Click here for instructions.)

Button Wall Art

It seems everyone is in love with butterflies this season, and we agree! Our wall art butterfly, made by Buttons Galore staff, is great decor for a kid’s or teen’s room.

Text as wall art is very hot in home decor, and our staff decided to pay tribute to the greatest sentiment of all: love! These easy to make letters could be made in any colors to coordinate with the decor of a nursery or a shabby chic home decor.

LOVE button wall art

Our buttons are fabulous for working in mixed media, and designer Maura Hibbitts took them to canvas for us! This whimsical sea monster is full of texture and color!

Last but not least, 28 Lilac Lane designer May Flaum shared her take on the 3D paper flower trend in our booth. Accented with a center of buttons, this flower will bring color and pattern to your walls or your party decor!

28 Lilac Lane fun with May Flaum & Ellen Hutson!

We’re very excited to share today that Ellen Hutson is featuring our 28 Lilac Lane product line by May Flaum this month in their monthly Mix It Up Challenge, pairing their favorite products with their own Essentials by Ellen products!

As part of the challenge, 28 Lilac Lane designer May Flaum has shared two new fabulous projects on her blog that use her gorgeous new 28 Lilac Lane Unicorn Shaker Mix:

28 Lilac Lane Rainbow Unicorn Shaker Mix

May’s quick and fun cards pair watercolors with 28 Lilac Lane embellishments to send love for Valentine’s Day (or any day). The first one uses sequins to add “pop” to an Ellen Hutson flower stamp.

You're So Sweet Card by May Flaum

You’ll really “heart” the fun simplicity of her second card – a hand watercolored heart that is embellished with sequins! It’s a little bit artsy, a little bit whimsical, and a whole lot of fun. It’s easy enough that the kids can do it – but the grown-ups will want to as well!

To see the finished cards, instructions, and supply lists, check out May’s blog for all the details! And don’t miss the chance to enter the challenge on the Ellen Hutson blog – entries close on February 14th.

A Peek at Buttons Galore’s Creativation 2017!

It’s show time! This past weekend, our staff traveled to Phoenix, Arizona to exhibit at the annual trade show put on by the Craft & Hobby Association (which is now called Association for Creative Industries). Thanks to everyone who stopped by to see us at Creativation 2017!

Buttons Galore Creativation Booth

Our booth in aisle 12 was stuffed with colorful sample boards featuring our numerous button lines, such as Button Bonanzas, Button Basics, and of course our 3D buttons!

28 Lilac Lane Creativation 2017

And of course an entire section of the booth was devoted to the beautiful 28 Lilac Lane collections designed by May Flaum.

Button Mason Jars

Plenty of our new products were on display. Our new Button Mason Jars, which we sneak peeked last week, were on display in a rainbow of button color!

Sequin and Bead Mixes

Over on the 28 Lilac Lane wall, we showed how you can organize our cute new Sequin & Bead Mixes in a nailpolish organizer!

28 Lilac Lane embellishment bottles

May’s six new embellishment bottles full of bright colors looked fabulous on a shelf in the booth!

28 Lilac Lane Shaker Mixes

The new 28 Lilac Lane shaker mix cubes really show off the shimmering sequins, buttons, and beads inside of them!

Tammy Tutterow demo

Our booth wasn’t the only place that you could see Buttons Galore buttons at Creativation! Designer Tammy Tutterow was doing a make & take event in the Spellbinders booth on Saturday morning that combined her signature collection’s dies with our buttons to make beautiful clips for your planner!

Creativation Spellbinders Demo

Our pastel Button Bonanza buttons looked great with Tammy’s felt flowers!

Thanks to all who visited the booth at Creativation! We really enjoyed spending time with all of you, and look forward to seeing you again soon!
