Design Team Wednesday with Dawn

Hello Eyelet Outlet friends! It's nearly time to go apple picking where I live.
So, pick up some apple brads from Eyelet Outlet
and embellish your home decor!

Note the Checked Washi Tape in Fish Colors on this 3.75 x 5.5 inch card.
I used it to create a "hinge" element on this card.
With so many fun washi colors, you are bound to find a color to match
the patterned paper you are working with.

I tinted this mason jar using Mod Podge, blue food coloring, and a splash of water.
Coat the inside of the jar.  Then let the glue drip out.
Place it into your 170 degree oven and let it bake until the glue dries from opaque to translucent.

Wrap the jar with raffia and a bit of Sunset Rumple Ribbon from Lovebug Creations.
I used another apple brad and some Glue Dots © to secure the decorative band.


Thanks for stopping by today!

Design Team Monday with Heather

Hi everybody! Heather here from Houses Built of Cards to share my first couple of cards for Eyelet Outlet with you! I hadn't played with brads for a very long time - and had so much fun when my first Design Team package arrived! This is the first thing I made using a Motorcycle brad:

Next, I had some fun with the Garden Tool Brads - I used some Stickles to make it look like they had some dirt stuck on them! 

Finally, I paired up some of the Butterfly Brads, Mini Butterfly Brads, and the coordinating Butterfly Washi Tape on this card:

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day!

Design Team Wednesday with Megan

 Hello Eyelet Outlet fans! It's Megan here today, with a couple fun cards for you. For this first card, I used one of the adorable new Turkey brads and paired it with a tree for a fun fall card.

This one is a little out of the norm for me, but I wanted to try something elegant, so I went for a wedding card. The pearl brad and jewel strips were just the right touches to complete this look.

Design Team Monday with Susie

Hello Eyelet Outlet Fans!
Susie here with a two new cards to share with you today.

Have you caught the Washi tape bug?  Well, I sure have and so has Eyelet Outlet!  Now we have the most marvelous Washi Tape you've ever seen!  And I couldn't wait to use it.  

I selected tapes to represent the rainbow and just started laying them diagonally onto my white card front.  Then I embossed my sentiment (YES- you CAN emboss on Washi tape!!) and added some die cut glittery hearts and some of our bling to the Washi tape strips.  This is a card I think I'll be making over and over with lots of different Washi tape.

Now for card #2 

You KNOW we have bling for you too!  So I decided to bling up this embossed card front.  Every place there was a flower, I added a pearl.  Then I decided to add some around my "hello" flair too.  And because I just LOVE the bling, I added some to the black scalloped frame too!
Whew!  Washi tape and bling.  What a great month this is!!!!  You will want to be sure to check out all our great new products in the Eyelet Outlet store.  Take a look right here.

I hope you like today's cards.  I welcome you anytime at The Dies Have It.

Design Team Wednesday with Annette!

Hi everyone. I have a couple fun cards using some of the new Eyelet Outlet products. The first card uses the new 1" ribbon. It's a great size for cards. Using double-sided sticky tape, I adhered the ribbon to the hot air balloon. I'm giving this to my son on his first day of school. The monsters remind me of the characters in Monsters University! Look! Mike is being carried away by a purple balloon! LOL! 

The second card uses the new washi tape. I love how the tape matches the brads!! 

Be sure to check out all the new products on the Eyelet Outlet site!
