Easy Holiday Scene Making

Hello everyone! Today's card is a fun see-through card that uses a transparency sheet to connect the front of the card to the back of it. Two die cuts placed at the top and bottom are glued to the outside of the transparency. This allows you to see to the back of card. It's a cool effect.

Several Eyelet Outlet products were used to embellish the two glitter die cuts. I love the Christmas vibe mixed with a bit of nature in the form of the tree and deer brads.

These little Gingerbread brads are just the cutest! They are one of my favorite holiday brads from the store. The Snowflake Bling and the Snowflake Brads are so beautiful. They enhance any holiday card you might be working on.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you get to do some Christmas crafting this season. Don't forget that EO products can enhance your projects with ease! See you next week!


Happy Creating Everyone!

A Friendship Pick-Me-Up!

Hello, Eyelet Outlet fans! I hope you've had a great week! Leslie here, sharing a pick-me-up card using our Truck Stamp Set with matching Truck Brads along with our Car Brads and some Red Jewel Bling. I know I've mentioned before that I love our stamps and matching brads, or our matching brads and washi tape... these products are so much fun to create with! And I think this card would lift anyone's spirits!

I cut a standard A2 size landscape top-folding card base and an oval die cut from white cardstock along with a rectangle die cut from red cardstock which I layered together. Using the Truck Stamp Set, I stamped the sentiment and highway in black ink and added a Truck Brad and two Car Brads. I adhered the panel to the card front and added Red Jewel Bling to complete the front. 

I cut the same rectangle die cut from red cardstock and an oval die cut from white cardstock for the inside which I layered together. Using the Truck Stamp Set, I stamped the sentiment in black ink, added a Truck Brad in the corner, and adhered the panel to the inside of the card base. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!

Pine & Dandy Holiday

Wish your family and friends a Pine & Dandy holiday with Eyelet Outlet pine themed embellishments!  

Today I'm sharing a couple of projects.  First up a tag featuring our lovely Pine Tree brads.  The patterned paper is a digital paper called Woodland Forest Friends from Creative Bu on Etsy.

Next up, a card featuring one of our popular cardinal brads and a pinecone brad. I have to tell you, I had this card completed and photographed without the cardinal and when I looked at the picture I realized the missed opportunity!  I ended up making a second card, this time with the cardinal!  This digital paper is from the same set.

Be sure to put pinecone, pine trees, and cardinals in your basket when you shop Eyelet Outlet!

Lauren's Holiday Favorites!

I (Lauren) am excited to look back on several years' worth of Eyelet Outlet holiday cards and choose a few to show off today!

This Peaceful Winter card from last December shows off all my favorite winter animal brads as holiday ornaments: sweet Polar Bears, handsome Moose and adorable Penguins; as well as Pine Tree Brads, Snowflakes and Jewel Bling Strip ornament hangers.

This coffee-centic card, Fa-La-La-La Latte, is from November 2019, and features our Holiday Coffee CupsHolly Brads and Poinsettia Washi; all of which I still adore!

This fun mini gift bag was part of our multi-designer 2017 Christmas in July Wrap-Up post, and it's a favorite because of how FAST and flexible the design is: I added a Men's Hat Brad and some Pearl Bling buttons to a stamped snowman, a Candy Cane Brad to Solid Color Paper Flowers and an eclectic mix of Washi Tapes (including Wide Tree WashiMerry Christmas TapeMusic Note TapeSkinny Solid TapeSkinny Hearts Washi) which I selected almost randomly. Such a fun way to add personal style to an inexpensive gift bag!

LOVES making holiday cards!

Favorite Holiday Projects by Janet

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great holiday weekend. This week here at EO, each of us on the Design Team is sharing our top 3 favorite holiday cards or projects from November 24th to December 1st.

I'll start with #3. This gift bag was cut using a Cricut Design Space Pattern. I love that it's so festive and sparkly. You know something great has to be inside it!


Next on the countdown is #2, a tropical Christmas card. I think this one is so much fun if you don't mind a little irreverence in your cardmaking. 


And now drumroll please for my most favorite holiday card. Penguins on Parade! With their wings out, they look like they are trying to balance themselves on the light cord.

Penguin Brads

Leslie's Holiday Favs!

Hello, Eyelet Outlet fans! I hope you've had a great week! Leslie here, sharing three of my favorite holiday projects created with our amazing products! When this idea was presented to our design team, we all loved it, so hopefully this is the start of a new holiday tradition! 

The first of my three favorites is this adorable Merry Christmoose card! These Moose Brads are some of the coolest brads ever, which I paired with our Copper Skinny Washi Tape and White Enamel Dots to create this fun scene.

The card in the number two spot is this peaceful serene scene created with our Cardinal Brads and Cardinal Profile Brads against a Glitter Star Washi Tape background embellished with Snowflake Brads and White Enamel Dots.

And my third favorite is this step card shaker! Who can resist a shaker card?! Especially a shaker card filled with our gorgeous 
Snowflake Sequins?! I also used clear gemstones from our Clear Jewel Bling and Clear Bling Strips to embellish the snowflakes on the front of the shaker.

Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!

Are you a Washi Tape Lover?


Create your own patterned paper using various washi tape in the Christmas/holiday theme.
Putting them at an angle is pleasing to the eye!

How about paper flowers?

The magic of Christmas makes a poinsettia!! Wow!

Our Mr. & Mrs. Claus Brads make a great focal point on your card,
without having to color them in. This is especially helpful when you are mass producing cards!

Other supplies:

Create a Barn Door by making 2 scores that have the edges meet in the middle.
Bend our Pewter Round Brads to create the door handles.

Designer Susan's Top 3 Holiday Picks

I've been on the Eyelet Outlet Design Team for quite a few years now and it's a little bit hard to pick my top three holiday projects, but after some deliberation, and without further ado, here they are...


In 2018 I created this card using Cricut brand adhesive foil and bling from Eyelet Outlet, which is the most beautiful bling you will ever find!  I made this card in several different colors that year and the bling possibilities were endless. One trip to our bling section at the Eyelet Outlet store and you will see what I mean. This card was a favorite because even though I made several, they were all uniquely different and they practically made themselves!  

Specific bling used for this card:

Snowflake Bling


My gingerbread house gift box had to be included in my top three favs! The recipient thought the box was the gift!  I used a gable box from the Cricut image library for this project.  The roof lifts off to reveal the gift inside.  Can you count the Eyelet Outlet products on this one?  

Prancing Deer Brad


The sweet smiling face of my granddaughter when she received this Advent Calendar I made for her last year made Number One an easy pick for me! It's constructed from cardstock and the SVG is from My Scrap Chick.  I embellished the drawers with dozens of Eyelet Outlet products.  

I'm sure you'll notice all of the products used above on the gingerbread box as well as these additional products:  

Thanks for joining us this week as we reminisce on our favorite holiday projects.

'Twas the Day Before Thanksgiving

Here's a happy little card focusing on one of the most popular and iconic of our Thanksgiving Day pleasures: PIE! 

Obviously I couldn't resist this sweet little slice from Doodlebug's "Pumpkin Spice" collection, especially since I knew it would pair well with my Eyelet Outlet Pumpkin and Rolling Pin Brads! To round out the design I also added a Leaf Brad, a Sunflower, a Heart and the Oven Glove from our Cooking Set.

Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Lauren Bergold
is looking forward
to Thanksgiving dinner!

Chances are you have great stamps in your crafty alcove.

By doing so, it blends into the background.

Bears Bring Good Tidings!


It's Janet and today I am feeling in the Christmas mood. It's gotten a little chilly here over the weekend and even though it's going to warm up again, it got me to think of snow and cold crisp air.

This card perfectly reflects my mood. I started by creating the snowy hills. These were made with Sparkle White Glitter Washi Tape. I stacked strips of them and then cut the hills using dies. Next I stamped, colored and fussy cut the igloo. I also cut the preprinted sentiment strip. 

I made an A2 sized card out of bright blue cardstock and then I blended Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch Oxide inks in the sky. This really intensifies the blue color and provides dimension. Then I put the scene together by gluing the back hill flat on the card. The foreground hill is on foam tape. Then I applied the igloo to the foreground hill and tucked in two Pine Tree Brads. I placed the Polar Bear Brads on the hill as well. Then I applied the sentiment and inserted two Snowflake Brads into the sky. And I call that done! 

I hope you enjoyed this one. Have a great Sunday and don't forget to check out the EO store for all your holiday card making!

Happy Creating Everyone!

Classic Step Card With Snowflake Shaker!

Hello, Eyelet Outlet fans! I hope you've had a great week! Leslie here, sharing a pretty Christmas card with you today. Seems I'm always in Christmas mode so I created a classic step card and added a snowflake shaker element which I filled with our Snowflake Sequins. I used clear gemstones from our Clear Jewel Bling and Clear Bling Strips to embellish the snowflakes on the front of the shaker.

I used a step card die set to cut the card base from navy cardstock along with layers from silver cardstock and snowflake patterned paper which I adhered to the card base. I built the shaker element using a chipboard ornament. I used the snowflake patterned paper on the inside and then added several additional die cut rings (using two circle dies) cut from white cardstock to make the shaker just a tad deeper and then filled it with our Snowflake Sequins. I painted the outside rim and edge silver with a silver paint pen, and colored the snowflakes on the front of the shaker with alcohol markers in blue tones, adding clear gemstones from our Clear Jewel Bling and Clear Bling Strips to embellish them. I adhered a tied snowflake ribbon to the top and added a stamped sentiment to complete the card. 

Here are a couple more shots of this pretty card. Our snowflake sequins and bling are so awesome!

Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!

Gingerbread Cornhole Game

I've been busy crafting little games and gifts for my grandkids this week and I'd like to show you this fun desktop cornhole game I made for my granddaughter.  This game is made from cardstock and measures about 12 long.  I got the SVG file for this project from Simply Crafty SVG's, but I modified it to made it gingerbread themed.

I embellished the gingerbread house with an Eyelet Outlet peppermint candy brad, red and green enamel dots, and gingerbread kids on either side of the house.  I also added gingerbread kids, candy cane, and peppermint candy brads to the felt bean bag game pieces that I hand stitched.

Thanks for stopping by today!
Keep on crafting!

Merci Bouquet Triple Play

It's probably impossible to have too many Birthday or Thank You greetings on hand, so whenever I (Lauren) think of a fun idea, I like to make multiple versions. Since there are plenty of different Eyelet Outlet Flower Brad styles, when I thought of "Merci Bouquet" I was spoiled for choice!

I used the same Wood Washi and Mini Ladybug Brads in all three versions, but changed up the patterned paper backgrounds to match the flower styles. For my first card I made a bouquet of Colored Daisy Brads.

My second card features our classic Bright Daisy Flower Brads, which are on sale!

My third card combines Fall Stitched Flower Brads (they come in Minis and Brights, too!) with petals cut from a green Solid Color Paper Flower to act as foliage.

Check out all of the Flower Brad styles, not to mention the Flower Tapes, in the Eyelet Outlet Online Store!

loves ALL the styles 
of flower brads!
