Time to show up and shop!

Hey Westcoasters!  Who is ready to get update and restock their craft rooms?
We are setting up shop in Hillsboro, OR...can't wait to see you this weekend.

What is on your must have list from Eyelet Outlet?

Frappe Birthday!

There's new brads at Eyelet Outlet and I've used two of them in this birthday card perfect for a coffee lover in my life!

I modified a candy shop from the Cricut image library with some other Cricut images to transform it into a coffee shop and paired the new cupcake brad with one of the new iced coffee brads to wish my coffee loving daughter a "Frappe Birthday!"  

See all the new brad releases at Eyelet Outlet and be sure to follow us all week as we debut them!

Cupcakes for Everyone!

New Brad Alert! We've got four new styles making their Eyelet Outlet debut today: Female Cardinals, Gift Boxes, Iced Coffee and... my (Lauren's) personal favorite... Swirl Cupcakes!

Three flavors of Swirl Cupcakes come in each package, so of course I had to make three slightly smaller than A2 cards. It also made sense to add in other birthday-themed and/or pink brads, such as a Birthday CandleLollipop Brad (they're on sale!) a FlamingoColored DaisyBirthday Sock Monkey (also on sale!) and a Heart Brad. A scattering of white Round Sequins, some torn patterned paper and a little machine stitching completes the design.

Stay tuned for more New Brad inspiration from the design team, right here on the Eyelet Outlet Blog.

Fairy Thanks


Eyelet Outlet brads make card making a breeze.
I need a pile of thank you, to make this fairy easy, keep the focus on the sentiment and Fairy Brads.  Clean open spaces and simple layouts are your friend when you are creating multiple copies of a card.  

Here I used a strip of patterned paper and Copper Foil Washi Tape along with Pink Bling strips for that pixie dust.

Remember, brads are released! 

Thanks for fluttering by today!

Clean and Simple Festive Christmas Card

Hello, Eyelet Outlet fans! I hope you've had a great week! Leslie here, sharing a fun and festive CAS Christmas card featuring our Santa Hat Brads, Santa Suit Brads and Snowflake Brads. This would be an easy one to mass-produce for those on your Christmas list!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from white cardstock along with a stitched rectangle die cut for the background. I die cut the 'jolly' word from red glitter sheet and adhered it to the stitched panel. I added a Santa Hat Brad and and two boots from the Santa Suit Brads, along with several Snowflake Brads, and then adhered the panel to the card base. 

I cut the inside panel from white cardstock and embellished it with a strip of red glitter sheet. I stamped the sentiment in black ink and cut it with a small stitched rectangle die. I added a Santa Suit Brad and layered the panel on red cardstock. 

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

Halloween Treat Bags


Decorating these little Halloween treat bags was such fun!  There's so many amazing Halloween themed embellishments available at Eyelet Outlet, as you can see from this project. And there's even more at

This little witch is from Cricut's Mini Monster's image set, but I substituted Eyelet Outlet Witch Legs brads for the originals.  I also used Eyelet Outlet Eye brads on her face and a round jeweled brad on her dress.  The jeweled brads are on sale now, too!   There's a mini spider brad in that cob web as well as a cute black kitten brad in the corner.  

And don't forget about the washi tape!  I used some purple glitter tape on my witch's hat as well as a few strips of black and white and some Happy Halloween tape.  

Thanks for being with us today and be sure and check back next week and see our newest brads!

CAS Question... a card still "Clean and Simple" if it features five Eyelet Outlet Washi Tape styles and nine Brads?! I (Lauren) say yes; but then I'm not exactly a minimalist, lol! 

Inspired by this cute tree sticker I found in my stash, I started looking through my Eyelet Outlet goodies for autumnal items in the right colors, and found Pumpkin BradsSunflowersMini Leaves, and the orange calico cat from our Feline Brads. To ground my embellishment grouping, I made a tape stack starting with Pumpkin TapeWood Washi, and my favorite Script Tape, to which I added some shorter pieces of solid color Skinny Tape. Since I had obviously made a tiny stylized landscape, it seemed like a good idea to finish off with Sun and Cloud Brads... so I did! 

hopes you're enjoying autumn 
as much as she is!

Handmade Apple Pie!

Hello EO fans! Janet here with an autumn card full of good memories and flavors of fall. I created a nostalgic café scene with the Apple, Coffee and Sunflower brad sets. Can you smell the freshly baked pie and pumpkin spiced coffee? And what would a fall table be without an apple shaped container holding sunflowers?

 Eyelet Outlet has so many brads and washi tapes to help you celebrate fall. Take a visit to the EO Store and see what I mean.

Get your train rollin'....

Hello, Eyelet Outlet fans! I hope you've had a great week! Leslie here, sharing a super sweet birthday card for a special little guy (our youngest grand) who turned one a few days ago! This is a mini slimline and sure was a fun one! I semi-CASEd the sentiment on one of my own designs from several years back where I used a tractor... I love it so much! ;)

The typical mini slimline is 3" x 6", however, I decided going forward that I'll make mini slimlines 3-1/2" x 6" which will be the legal size for mailing. I cut the top-folding landscape card base from white cardstock along with a layering panel from blue cardstock. I printed the front and inside sentiments on a piece of white cardstock and trimmed them down to be slightly smaller than the blue layering panels. I hand-drew the train track across the white cardstock panel, added Train Mix Brads and Sun & Cloud Brads, and adhered the panels to the card base.

I embellished the inside sentiment panel with strips cut from green, red and yellow cardstock, added an additional Train Mix Brad, and layered the panel on blue cardstock. 

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

Witchful Thinking

Halloween is just a month away, but there's still time to make some fun (and fast!) cards with Eyelet Outlet Halloween Brads!

This sweet little witch diecut was part of a seasonal collection from a year or two ago, and when I saw her again while looking for something else, I realized that she was the perfect size for out Witch Leg Brads! And where there's a witch, you are bound to find a few black cats... or in this case... Kitten Brads; one of whom is very curious about what might be under that Witch Hat

We've also got Pumpkins and GhostsCandy Corn and MonstersSpiders and Owls and lots more Halloween fun at Eyelet Outlet!

A Bag Full of Fall Fun!


Hello Ai Fans! It's Janet here with a fun gift bag idea. It's more popular than ever to give special little gifts to certain little pumpkins at Halloween. Here's an idea how to turn a plain brown paper bag from the Dollar Tree into something special.

I made the shaker by combining two pumpkin files in Cricut Design Space. In the background, I applied strips of glitter Sunflower Washi Tape. This is one of my most favorite fall washi designs in the store. It's so cheerful! I used it as the background for the lace on the top and bottom also.

What would a shaker be without shaker bits? I chose to use the Pumpkin Sequins from the store. I also scrunched up three of the smallest black Paper Flowers, glued them together and applied glitter glue to the edges of the petals before applying them to the stem. Finally I added a beautiful Sunflower Brad as an accent to the raffia bow. I really love how this one turned out.


Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy Creating Everyone!

Pun-y Breakfast Artist Trading Cards and Coins!

Hello, Eyelet Outlet fans! I hope you've had a great week! Leslie here, sharing a super fun set of four artist trading cards and coins, created with the coordinating Breakfast Stamps and Bacon Egg & Toast Brads, along with Blue Jewel Bling, Clear Jewel Bling, Green Jewel Bling and Gray Enamel Dots! You just can't go wrong with stamps and brads that coordinate with each other!

I cut and punched the card and coin bases (two for each ATC) from white cardstock along with some patterned paper layers. I adhered the patterned paper layers to the bases to make the four ATCs, stamped the sentiments from Breakfast Stamps on each one, and added the Bacon Egg & Toast Brads. I then added Blue Jewel Bling, Clear Jewel Bling, Green Jewel Bling and Gray Enamel Dots and adhered the extra base on the back of each ATC for stability. 

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

Recipe Scrapbooking

In 2009 I decided to scrapbook a few family recipes for my girls and that's when I discovered Eyelet Outlet and their amazing brads.  Every once in a while I return to my paper crafting roots and create a recipe scrap book page and recently I created this two page layout for my niece. The recipe is a family favorite made often for picnics by my late mother.  Adding to the specialness of this page is that the recipe is written in her handwriting.

Since this baked bean recipe calls for bacon, I knew I'd need to reach for my Eyelet Outlet bacon brads.  And the tiny heart brads on my title were perfect.

Our family typically enjoys this recipe while roasting hot dogs on a back yard fire pit, so the Eyelet Outlet camp fire brad from our camping set was a must.  Just for fun I added a pair of Eyelet Outlet sunglasses to my "Cool Beans" image and of course, there's always room for Eyelet Outlet enamel hearts.  

I hope you're inspired to give recipe scrapbooking a try for your family favorites!  Be sure to check out all the Eyelet Outlet cooking themed products to fancy up your pages, too!

Trick or Treat

There are few things more adorable, in my (Lauren's) opinion, than tiny children dressed up for Halloween; unless it's tiny MONSTAS wearing Eyelet Outlet Brads as part of their disguise!

The Yeti, Dragon and Unicorn from Taylored Expressions' Mythical Grumplings stamp set are seemingly already at the top end of cuteness, but then I decided to give them (from left to right) a Witch Hat and Wand from the Wizard Set; a Men's Hat and Mustache; and Groucho Eye Glasses. A Pumpkin Brad and a Frog complete the scene, which turned into the world's fastest shaker card thanks to a set of nested oval dies and some EO Star and Pumpkin Sequins

loves all holidays that feature candy!
