What's Cookin'?

Good Thursday, crafters! As mentioned a few weeks ago,  I recently re-discovered the beautiful retro graphics of Velma and Kathryn Balint of KB and Friends having first purchased from them many years ago.  I've gone completely wild over their adorable collection of boxes that pair so perfectly with Eyelet Outlet products.  

Today I'm using a little box reminiscent of a 50's area play cooking set.  I used my Cricut to create a window in the box and attached some clear acetate and attached the box to the card base with foam tape. Behind the window are wooden spoon brads and a pan brad from Eyelet Outlet's Cooking Brads set and Baking Brads set.  

The refrigerator and stove are from Cricut's Suburbia image set.  A few enamel hearts finish off the card adding more texture.  Thanks for stopping in!  Enjoy the day with those you love!

Video Tuesday!

Here's the Scoop

 The newest Eyelet Outlet brad style is pretty sweet: who can resist Ice Cream Brads? Certainly not me (Lauren) so I thought I'd celebrate by making a card.

There are three "flavors" in each packet: strawberry and chocolate, vanilla and chocolate, plus strawberry and vanilla. But I found it much too hard to choose, and since they're totally free of sugar, fat and calories, I adorned my oversized sentiment with one of each. I scattered a few white Heart Brads around as well and matted my panel on some Glitter Pink Design Tape.

Whether you are (like me!) a total Sweet Tooth, or prefer something a bit more savory, there are Eyelet Outlet Food Brads for literally EVERY taste!

Roll Crab Tide!

 I apologize to any Alabama fans who may have been attracted to this post because of the Roll Tide title but hopefully you'll forgive me!

This card features one of the awesome crabs from the Crab and Lobster brad set. I've had a lot of fun creating cards using these little fellas and this once is no exception!

I found this scene as a print then cut on Cricut Design Space. I added the joke sentiment and transformed the altered scene to a new print then cut design. After this was printed and cut, I added the seagulls and the crab. The motion line for the crab was inked using a fine line black pen after it was printed. 

I hope you enjoyed this little jokester of a card. Don't forget to stop by the store and pick up your own Crab and Lobster set for you card making fun!

Just Be-Claws...

Hello, Eyelet Outlet fans! I hope you've had a great week! Leslie here sharing a fun clean and simple note card with a beachy feel! I absolutely love note cards because they can be used for a variety of occasions and there's plenty of room on the blank inside panel to write a custom message.

This 'just because' design is super simple and can easily be mass-produced to create a set to give as a gift. I cut a landscape top-folding A-2 card base from kraft cardstock and splattered some white ink with a fan brush over the front. I created the sentiment on the computer and cut it in a strip, then layered it on orange cardstock embellished with brown Glitter Skinny Washi Tape. I added several Crab & Lobster Brads to the left of the sentiment and affixed the strip to the card base. Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!

Have You Heard the Scoop?

Have you heard the scoop?  Eyelet Outlet has just released ice cream cone brads and today I've got a couple of cards featuring them!

First up is a card that has all three flavor combinations.  The ice cream paper I used is a from a digital paper set from Erin Bradley's Etsy Shop and I've also used our pink bow glitter washi tape and pink check skinny washi tape.  Some pink pearl stick on gems accent the scalloped circle.

Next up is a card that's a sweet way to say, "I'm sorry," which would be great as a belated birthday card.

The little girl is from the Cricut image library and her face is a digital stamp from Peachy Keen Stamps.  A pink enamel heart adds a touch more texture.  

Thanks for being with us today!  Be sure to join the Eyelet Outlet Fans group on Facebook and show us how you've used the new ice cream cone brads!

Cacti for Everyone!

Last week I (Lauren) treated myself to a fun Lawn Fawn Mini Stamp Set with a cactus in it, entirely because I knew I had not one, but two, beautiful styles of Cactus Tape from Eyelet Outlet!

My first card features this slightly kawaii version of Cactus Tape with sweet little cacti in their pots. I chose all of my colors specifically to coordinate with the tape, including the addition of Fall Stitched Flowers and Minis (the latter are on sale!) in that pretty mustard yellow. I neatly lined up three strips of the tape on plain white cardstock, then flanked them with two strips of Star Gold Washi. To give a slightly more dynamic feel to the accent panel, I trimmed it at the top and bottom so that it appears my Star Tape is a slightly narrower width.

I made a similar panel for my second card, using Cactus and Flamingo Washi and Green and Gold Foil Tape. This time I rounded the corners on one side, as well, and added the accent panel towards the left, rather than centering it on my A2 card. I added a Flamingo Brad, some pink Heart Pearl accents and a sentiment trimmed from XO Gold Foil Tape.

There are so many cool and interesting ways to incorporate Washi Tape in your cards, and luckily Eyelet Outlet has *hundreds* of fabulous styles to choose from!

loooooooves washi tape!

Your a LOB-star!

 Do you have someone you would like to celebrate with a little humor? If so, this card idea might be for you!

I like puns and this one made me smile. It features the Crab and Lobster brad set. I heat embossed the star with purple glitter heat embossing powder before cutting it and then arranged my two lobsters on it. The sentiment was created on Cricut Design Space as a print then cut. 

As an accent to the wave cardstock border, I used two washi tapes. These are the Thin Glitter Tape and the Striped Tape. The Thin Glitter Tape is one I really recommend as it comes with 5 different colors. A thin strip of glitter is a great accent on many cards when you just need a little bit of something. 

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to pick up some Crab & Lobster Brads at the Eyelet Outlet store.

Summer Handbag

Hello, Eyelet Outlet fans! I hope you've had a great week! Leslie here sharing a fun summer handbag which is actually a gift holder! I absolutely love making these, and this one features washi tape, pearl bling and a paper flower with a jewel brad center! How fun would it be to tuck a gift card or cash in this for a summer birthday, beach wedding or anniversary gift?!

For the front and back of the purse base, I covered the cardstock with Funky Birds Washi Tape and die cut the pieces. I cut the remaining purse pieces from tweed cardstock and the rings from gold foil cardstock, and then assembled the purse handles. I assembled the purse base and added White Pearl Bling Strips across the washi tape seams on the front and back, then attached the handles and the other purse pieces. I attached the three Paper Flower layers with an Amber 6mm Jewel Brad w/Gold Edge and affixed the flower to the front of the purse.

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

I Miss You


 Every once in a while a card comes together totally different than what was planned.  Today's card did just that!  This card entitled "I Miss You" is a fall card showing the changing season and captures the loss we experienced this year...loss of family and friends as well as loss of our 'normal' life as we knew it!

The beautiful Eyelet Outlet Leave Brads are falling to the ground while the serene Eyelet Outlet Bird Set Brad looks on.   Take some time today to go over to the Eyelet Outlet site to gather up some brads, bling, and washi to make your fall cards!

Halloween Treat Boxes

Halloween will be here before you know it, so I've started on treat boxes for the kiddos in my life!  

First up is an adorable Frankenstein treat dispenser.  This file is from My Scrap Chick and comes in SVG as well as PDF formats, so you don't need to own a die cut machine to make this one.  

As soon as I saw this file I knew I'd have to embellish it with Eyelet Outlet Screw brads!

This little tombstone box was made on my Cricut.  The box portion is from Cricut's Happy Hauntings image set.  I welded the tree and moon image to the back of the box and it's from Creepy Critters.  I added an Eyelet Outlet bat brad to the moon.  The little ghost brad is hovering overhead as well and the black cat brad is strolling by on the moonlit night. I thought fun size packages of Reese's Pieces would be perfect for this sentiment!

Be sure and check out Eyelet Outlet's holiday section for more great brads for the fall and winter season!

Look for Rainbows

I (Lauren) love rainbows! So I'm pretty pleased that Eyelet Outlet has Rainbow Tape (several styles, in fact) and Rainbow Brads (they come with unicorns!) and I'll take any excuse to use one or both, especially if I can also work in rainbow shades of Boot Brads, which are currently on special for just .99c!

I made two tape backgrounds from my current favorite Rainbow Washi; and used a fun handwriting font to print sentiments onto plain white cardstock. Cloud-edge dies continue the theme. My first card has a line of Boot Brads in rainbow order (there are five different colors, but don't worry, you get six MATCHING pairs of boots in each set!) The second card has only one pair of boots, but to set the scene, I've also incorporated Sun and Clouds, plus a rainbow from the Unicorn and Rainbow Brad set. Both cards have blue Tear Drop Bling rain splashes.

I hope these rainbows have brightened up your day, and if so, remember there are lots more at Eyelet Outlet!
