I’m gonna be honest. I don’t want to give these away because I WANT TO KEEP THEM. I WANT TO KEEP THEM ALL. But, I am a hoarder, and I must break the cycle. And I want to share the love with you, so I am going to give all these beautiful embellishments from Jolee’s Boutique and French General away to one lucky reader. UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed! Thanks for participating.
This video is so adorable, and gives you a feel for French General, the Los Angeles store that inspired the collection by Jolee’s Boutique. You can see a lot more photos of this unique vintage-inspired line over at Scrappy Jedi and May Flaum.
This is the package that greeted me. Wrapped in paper and with a label that said “A curious collection of vintage notions with old world charm.” Cue the Amelie-esque accordion music!
These cameo embellishments are the ones that are really, really hard to let go.
You can tell I really love the cameos because they are in most of the pictures here. I also love the buttons.
The giveaway is for everything in the photo below:
Except the cameos.
To Enter: Kidding. I am giving everything in the photo. And all you have to do is comment below!
Congrats to our winner:

Well I call myself a craft collector instead of hoarder. I lost most of my scrapbooking supplies during the 2011 tornados so this would be an awesome prize.
Those cameos ARE pretty amazing.
I hope to win these!
Would love to win this!
Thanks for the chance to win
These pieces are fabulous! I’ve seen them on other blogs and have been waiting to see any in my local craft stores, but so far, not yet!
These things are fabulous and are making me have some great creative ideas. I’m thinking canvas collage.
I would love to win!!!
These are all so cute! How nice of you to share them with a lucky winner! (I hope it’s me, I hope it’s me, I hope it’s me) LOL
Nice giveaway. Good luck to everyone that enters:)
great giveaway! those are lovely pieces.
love love love these!
What a fun give away! I love this blog!
So beautiful!! Love these!! :D
Because I totally need more stuff! Woohoo!
i’m such a sucker for this kind of thing!
I love the fact that you admit that you are a hoarder! AND, the fact that you find the generosity to share your abundance!. I am of the thought that part of the “intrigue” of being a hoarder is what joy it brings to share. As it is upon the occasion that I find a manila envelope that I have randomly filled with snippets and trinkets from past projects and pass the packet on with terms to help themselves, and, hopefully… add to the progression of scraps and “pretties” that may bring a smile to some other person to enjoy ! And, perchance…someone will find the perfect thing to inspire, or finish something that had been in need of “just that”!. Sending you smiles!
I LOVE the packaging of the French General stuff!
I love them all. SO pretty. I just started journaling/scrapbooking with 3D objects and I am addicted. I love the idea of using found objects to make gorgeous covers and pages. I’d love to win! Thank you!
I love cameos! have so many things i could use those for!
Wow! What a beautiful collection of ephemera. I think I could use each piece, including the packaging. I would love the opportunity to create using these embellishments. Thank you for the opportunity to win.
