Flair For Buttons: A Giveaway

Recently I've been using lots of "flair" on my layouts. I kept spotting those little button badges on pages everywhere; but it was by a lucky chance (thank you Alinor from Freeze Frame!) that I found my way to the A Flair For Buttons etsy shop. I was hooked. I ordered. And then the lovely owner Shelley and I got talking and now I'm delighted to tell you she has generously offered me two sets of flair to giveaway today.

You can use them on layouts:
details from my layouts here and here
or on cards. I love them on cards!
it's easy to add a bit of punch with a button, even on a very simple design:

The Keep Calm came from a favourite set I ordered - look at the others!


So, about that giveaway. I have two sets, so there will be two winners. I didn't want to open the pretty packaging just for the photo, and I have flipped some of the buttons round so you'll get a lucky dip surprise, but here they are:


Have a look through the shop, visit the A Flair For Buttons blog, take a peek at what I've made and then leave me a flair related comment

- Everyone welcome including new commenters. I don't do "follow me to win" giveaways!
- I'll post anywhere. My last prize went to France
- This giveaway is open for a week and I'll announce the winner next Tuesday
- drop by Shelley's and admire her flair. She'd love to see you..

..best of luck!

I am loving your cards... simple yet so effective. I have had a look at the A Flair for Buttons Etsy site and want so many of them I don't know where to begin!

Abi said...

The cars are beautiful Sian! I clicked the link to the etsy shop and had to close it quickly because there were too many that I liked and I was oh so tempted! I adore the milk cap ones and the woodgrain "enjoy". Thank you for a great giveaway!

These look brilliant,Sian....I've really enjoyed browsing the shop and blog.I'd love some.

Lisa-Jane said...

How totally brilliant are they?! I love all the things the DT have done with them too. I particularly like the ones with the spectacles on - lots of fun to be had with that huge selection though.

Dawn said...

Think I best get saving so I can buy up the store, think I've found my latest scrapping love ;)

Sheena said...

Is it wrong to want every button in the shop :D
Loving the cards Sian x

These are just fab Sian. Been to look at the shop. The Keep Calm ones would be superb on a layout or card :)

Mary B said...

The buttons are gorgeous and certainly add a wow factor to a page or card. I love the bicycle card and the two minimalist ones.

Jennifer Shaw said...

Your creations with these buttons are beautiful. Flair sure does pack a punch on a LO or card. I'm sure the post to Canada is crazy so no need to include me in your giveaway. :) These buttons are beautiful!

Carmen said...

Oh Sian! I am in love with this shop - I never expected there to be such a huge selection. You just KNOW I have fallen in love with her Halloween collections and I may HAVE to buy the moustache collection for Devvies Christmas stocking and the vintage girls are just gorgeous and... and... and... well I have saved her shop as a favourite for when I'm off stash ban!

Thanks for the linky!

Mel said...

Ohhh these are very cute - thanks!

Sarah said...

Ooh, these are gorgeous - so many in the shop I like .. cameras, polka dots, coffee cups ... tempting!!Thanks for the chance to win!

Alana said...

Oh yes:) We could all do with a bit of flair:) Those buttons are fabby.....I can spy yellow triangles and blue zigzags already so I'm hooked already. Great card designs Sian, very 'in' and 'happening':)

Maria Ontiveros said...

I love flair. They would be perfect for cards. I love the idea of pairing them with images from my collage sheets for something super fast and fun.

Nicole K/GothamGal said...

I insta-love your insta-flair.
Thanks for the chance to win!

Emily said...

All of your projects are fantastic!! I'm totally in love with the flair! Right now I'm loving the Document Flair sets!!!

Jo.C said...

They are lovely. Quite like the cameras on the camping 1. Will have to check out properly and I promised myself I wasn't buying any more stash :0)

Sue Althouse said...

Oh, this is some serious enabling. I've had a few flair buttons in some recent kits, and I'm getting hooked on them!

Louise said...

OH MY Sian, what are you doing to us lol!! these are gorgeous, i had noticed them popping up on your layouts x

dogmatix said...

There are some great flairs in the shop....thanks for guiding us to it..although I am not sure my bank balance will be happy lol

Amy said...

Hi Sian, just popped in to say hello today - please don't include me in the drawing. As cute and delightful as these buttons are, they wouldn't get used ... well, I would just stare at them and get scared of figuring out how to adhere them to something!

Can I just say, along the lines of recent Thursday Thinking posts, having to become a follower and the like is a major turn off for give aways as far as I am concerned .... just a thought as I type away here this morning!

humel said...

Oh, how gorgeous are these?! What a generous giveaway :) I love the icons!! And the 'document' sets!! And the phrases!! And the 'story' ones!! And the dream ones!! And the ones with bikes!! And the moustaches!! And 'capture beauty'!! And....

*breathe*

OK, calmer now :) Your layouts and cards are stunning, great use of a fabby product! x

laurie said...

i checked out the button shop and it is pure eye candy! i especially love the halloween ones and the travel ones. so many to choose from....

Jimjams said...

My birthday is coming up and today (or should that now be yesterday?) my Mum was asking me what was on my wish-list ... I shrugged and said I'd better start thinking of things ... now I have several things to put on there!

Would love to win some though, just in case Mum gets a better idea!

April said...

I adore Flair! Thanks for the chance to win!!

Karen said...

I love Flair Buttons. They are often my solution to the third element in an embellishment cluster (being much less talented than you in that department.) I don't think I've ever used one on a card. I think I'll remedy that situation tomorrow! Thanks for the inspiration and a chance to win.

SusanMcL said...

Cameras, and clouds, and retro, oh my!
Lovely flair, thx for the chance !

debs14 said...

You certainly have a 'flair' for hunting down great embellishments! I hadn't realised how much I needed some of these before I looked on etsy and saw how fab they all are, how do you choose just one set?!

stephanie said...

I love that shop, but am never brave enough to take the flair 'plunge'.

alexa said...

These are beautiful - and I love those monochrome cards: you are very inspiring! I'd love to be included. I struggle with card making but will be taking lessons from you. And am off to visit Flair for Buttons now.

Scrappi Sandi said...

OMG Sian! Why do you do this to me?!! You provide the most inspired links! I have added this Etsy shop to my faves & couldn't leave without ordering a pack...would have been about half a dozen packs, but for the nice people at Customs!! :( I know a few scrappy for whom I'll be Christmas shopping here! I love both of your cards featured on the blog, but especially the two B&W ones on yours. Please include me in your giveaway draw!! :D

rach said...

Wow! those buttons are amazing! I think my favourite's are the stars flair in brights and sherbet. Will be ordering some when I get paid next week. Diolch Sian

Alinor said...

so happy to see one more flair addict scrapper ;)
your cards are super cute

Missus Wookie said...

Had a lovely browse around her shop and blog when you posted about flair before. I remember these from my youth... hmm that could be a STS - flair related too!

I'll be saving my pennies for a bit of a splurge I'm sure.

Sandie said...

Oh... I love buttons, Sian! Thank you for the link, I shall be revisiting for a longer browsing when I have time. I love the ones with cameras on, and the text. In fact I'd find the perfect use for all of them! Thank you and Flair for the change to win a set.

Deb @ Paper Turtle said...

Wow - I'm comment #45. I think if I don't win your sweet giveaway I just might have to order some on my own. These are adorable buttons - and cute packaging too!

Thanks, Sian! xo

Gail said...

These are adorable! I saw so many that I'd love to have that I know when I go upstairs I know I'll probably order some. I'll try and hold off though till after your draw.

Nathalie said...

So bummed I missed out on this great giveaway! I have been struggling to keep up with my reader this month but I am catching up on your posts today!!! :D

Julie Marshall said...

Love all of your cards, but the B/W are my favorites. Those Keep Calm buttons are fab! TFS.
