I haven't seen these at my m's store..do they all carry them? How thick or high is the dot? I prefer things that are flatter these days, not too much dimension but these certainly look neat! See they are sold out here. Were these on sale at m's? How do you use them? Just as a little accent, or a group of them together or ?

I've seen them used in clusters or spread all over. They are pretty cute.
Check out a lot of examples here: enamel dots in gallery

They are not very high and so far have not made indentations on the page protectors. I love them but have yet to see them at my local M's store.

I love enamel dots and have bought every set I can find. They are fairly flat. I use them in place of bling or brads and buttons. A few people have posted pics of them being sold at M along with other MME product ,but so far my M is not carrying them.

Can someone please tell me how they compare to brads, I have hundreds of these and while I've never seen an enamel dot, they look kind of similar. Are the dots flatter and shinier than brads (cause that's what I'm imagining)?

I saw them at mine on an end cap with matching MME product.

They are awesome-you will love them!! they r not bulky or heavy & wont indent your pages. i haven't seen them at my local m store but you can buy the new ones from basic grey here in the store. they are a dollar less than the mme but only have 2 colors in each package, as oppose to several colors. i have to warn you tho they are addicting!

They finally put the MME stuff out at my store one day last week. It was on a small endcap online of the units between the main aisles here. There isn't a lot of it, so you might have to search for it if they have it. They are definitely flatter than brads, and the edges are a lot thinner.

I picked up the only two sets they have at my local Ms about a week ago. I haven't used them yet but I bought them because so many people rave about them.

|Posted: 4/15/2013 11:18:16 AM|Oh how I love them!! They are much thinner than brads, and SO much quicker to use. No poking holes, and opening prongs.
They really are just beautiful. They remind me of perfect drops of nailpolish or something like that.

I got some yesterday at M's. I have tons of these little guys, I just love them. They are not very high. Definitely not comparable to something like flair or anything like that.

How they compare to brads.
There are no prongs on the back and no holes to punch. They just peel and stick. The best thing to come along in awhile. Love them.

|Posted: 4/15/2013 1:12:55 PM|Oh...I might have to make a trip out today! How many different colored sets are available? Of course I will have to get every one of them! They sound perfect for accents and like the use on the pages I looked at. I have alot of brads and eyelets that I never ever use anymore, too much trouble. Buttons are cute but way too bulky now, I'm going "flat" and want to do the PL albums so these should be great!

My M's just had 2 different sets - You can check on scrappyjedi's blog to see pics of some items she found there. I picked up the paper pad she mentioned - I don't usually like thinner sheets but it was 50% off so $10 for all those designs! I found mine near the register - kind of between an aisle and the register. You definitely may have to hunt for them...
|Posted: 4/15/2013 4:35:59 PM|ooohh.. I just got some at A's today as they had a 33% off all embellishments sale!! I thought I would give them a whirl at that price!!
