Sequin blog candy

Hi everyone!  I recently bought some sequins and have been having a blast using them!  You can see some of the cards I made with them on this post, this post and this post and on my post coming tomorrow!  Sequins are super cute and are the latest trend in embellishments.  I buy them from Cartwright's Sequins online.  They are inexpensive, have an amazing (and overwhelming) selection and super fast shipping, I highly recommend them.

These little packets come with a crazy amount of sequins, so I thought I would share some!  It's hard to tell in these little piles, but there are hundreds in this picture!  I included some of my favorite colors, mixed collections in both 6mm and 5mm sizes.
To be entered for this giveaway leave me a comment on this post, and I will pick a winner Monday, June 17th.  Note you don't have to be a follower of any kind to enter, but please if you do leave a comment be sure to check back on Monday to see if you won.  I have so many blog winners who never contact me.

Full disclosure, click onto Cartwright's at your own peril.  They have a crazy amount of sequins in all shapes, finishes and sizes.  Be prepared to place an order!  Just sayin'!  
Some sequin info, the sequins sold at Neat & Tangled and Studio Calico and such are 6mm in size.  I like this size, but my favorite is the 5mm, which seems more scaled to my cards for flower centers and such.  It's all about personal taste, but I also prefer the Satin and Opaque Iridescent finishes.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

  37. Michelle,
    You've created a monster in me. I love sequins. I'm 65 yrs. young and they will outlive me for sure. Can't wait til I get some more. Are you using Glossy Accents to adhere them? TFS
