A few weeks ago, I showed you three nature inspired tags made from EZLaser Designs. The pack has six large tags sized at 5 1/8" x 3 1/8." These are the other three tags that I embellished. All supplies are linked at the end of this post.

Hello, Eyelet Outlet fans! I hope you've had a great week! Leslie here sharing a super simple Christmas card with just cardstock, a stamp set, a die and a pack of gorgeous brads! This would be a great Christmas card to mass produce to send to all those on your list!
I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base along with smaller layering panels from kraft cardstock and red cardstock. I rounded the bottom right corner (which I love to do) and adhered the layers together. I die cut a pine branch, adhered it to the front panel, and added four Pinecone Brads. I adhered the panel to the card base, and the only thing left to do was stamp the sentiment in green ink. Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!

Today's card entitled, "JOY", is designed not only to bring a smile to your face during this holiday season, but can also be a card that uses up leftover supplies!
The JOY sentiment uses the Eyelet Outlet Gold Glitter Washi Tape and the Diamond Press JOY die. Next is the pleasant discovery of leftover Christmas paper scraps: flocked holly paper along with green embossed suede paper. The last supply search is checking out the Eyelet Outlet holiday brads (listed below) I had available; there were only one of some and only a small quantity of others.
It is now time for the card assembly. Some Brads are placed on the JOY sentiment while others lined up on either side of the sentiment. The Red Glitter Washi Tape is cut in half and placed at the top and bottom of the middle green strip.
Take a moment to visit the Eyelet Outlet site and explore all of the brads, bling, and more and determine what items you can use on your JOY card!
Eyelet Outlet Supplies Used:
Gingerbread Brad, Snowman Couple Brad, Red Glitter Washi Tape, Nutcracker Brad, Santa Hat Brad, Holiday Light Brad, Pine Tree Brad, and Holly Brad.
Stay Safe. Be Well. Happy Crafting!

Hello Eyelet Outlet fans! It's getting closer to Thanksgiving and my mind has completely turned to getting things ready for Christmas. I'm in full swing of making cards and tags. To that end, I made these six tags over the weekend using a variety of EO products.
It all started with a new washi tape I noticed had arrived at the store. It had six different Christmas sentiments and I immediately thought I would make tags with it. And here is the result of that inspiration. This tape is wide as washi tape goes. It's a full 1 6/8" wide which turned out to be perfect for the mini tag templates I used from Kiwi Lane. You could use any tag pattern, dies, cut them with an electronic machine or even make them by hand. The average size of the finished tags are 1 7/8" wide by 3" tall. Perfect to pair with a bow on Christmas packages.
I often hear people ask what they can do with washi tape. Well, this is a perfect example of an out of the box use that takes advantage of the beautiful prints. To make them, I applied long strips of the washi tape on white cardstock. Then I trimmed the cardstock down the sides and top of the tape. I used my paper trimmer with a deckle blad to cut the bottom. Then I used double-sided adhesive to attach the washi pieces to the tags. After that, I had great fun decorating them with a variety of bling and brads.

Hello, Eyelet Outlet fans! I hope you've had a great week! Leslie here sharing another fun Christmas card that would be super easy to mass produce! Even though I'm retired, I stay so busy I'm always trying to come up with easy designs that showcase these awesome Eyelet Outlet products!
I cut a standard A2 top-folding card base from white cardstock and a green cardstock layer. I tore white cardstock in three uneven strips to create snow banks and adhered them to the bottom of the green panel. I added four Holiday Tree Brads and stamped a sentiment in green ink in the bottom right corner. I applied two strips of Green Dots Washi Tape at the top of the green panel and adhered the panel to the card base. The final touch was adding Snowflake Bling. Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!

Today's card is a continuation of the covid card series started several months ago. Cards 1-3 included "Social Distancing", "Zoom" and "Heros". Card 4 of this series is entitled "Pandemic". If you haven't heard the word 'pandemic' prior to 2020, then it is a near certainty you are now familiar with it.
This slimline card has a lot going on! The card is 4x9 and fits into a #10 business envelop. Other than the brads, the card is lacking in color and pattern---that was intentional.
First, the title in white letters is constructed by using four copies of the letter glued together to provide a thick, solid title.
Next, the Pandemic definition: "Prevalent throughout an entire country, continent, or the whole world; epidemic over a large area".
Moving over to the the right side of the card are three mini-scenes summarizing the emotional toll this disease has on people.
- The Eyelet Outlet Monster Brads represent that this is a scary disease and the unknown can be quite challenging.
- The Eyelet Outlet Heart Brad shedding tears represent the heartbreak that family and friends experience as they are dealing with the sickness and loss of life.
- The Eyelet Outlet Deer Brad represents the loneliness and isolation that many feel as their 'normal' activities and visits with others are restricted.
The card sentiment at the bottom is something we now hear in everyday life: Stay Safe, Be Well.
If any piece or part of this card provides inspiration to you, then please create a card and send it to someone who may be need a few words coming their way. It can be reassuring, healing, or an acknowledgement they are not alone in this world.
Take a moment to go over to the Eyelet Outlet site and explore the vast array of brads.
Stay Safe. Be Well.

Hello Eyelet Outlet Fans! I've got three tags today that celebrate Christmas with a nature theme.
I loved the images in these tags and knew I wanted to make them Christmas tags. I used lots of Eyelet Outlet goodies to decorate them. First, I used washi tapes over the top of the white layer of each tag that shows through when the black laser layer is on top. I have decided to call this "painting with Washi." I just cut the tape to fit behind. Exact cuts aren't necessary since the laser designs will cover up jagged edges. Once that was done, I added sentiments from my stash and EO bling.
I will be back next week with the last three tags in this set. Can't wait to share them with you! Have a great week!

Hello, Eyelet Outlet fans! I hope you've had a great week! Leslie here sharing a beautiful Christmas card with just the right amount of sparkle! I hope you've been working on your Christmas card stash and have a good number of them done by now!
As I'm sure you've noticed, a standard A2 size top-folding card base is my "go-to" card base, so I cut one from white cardstock along with a red cardstock panel which I adhered to the front of the card base. I cut a small square white cardstock element that I covered with Glitter Star Washi Tape. I have a new birch tree window die in my stash so I cut one from white silver cardstock and adhered it to the front of the square element. I added a Cardinal Brad and a Cardinal Profile Brad along with a couple Snowflake Brads to the square element and adhered it to the card front. The finishing touch was the addition of several White Enamel Dots above the focal element. Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!

Things are getting festive here at Eyelet Outlet! Here's another gift bag that takes an inexpensive bag and turns it into a beautiful gift bag for the holidays. It's one that will be used year after year.
In this example, three different washi tapes are used: 1 solid and 2 with small details on them. Prepare the washi by placing it on white cardstock and use a paper trimer to cut to the width of the washi tape creating strips of washi. Measure the length and width of the bag to determine the length of the strips. From there, this project follows the standard paper weaving technique. Note: weave the washi strips and adhere the woven strips to a piece of cardstock; the cardstock is then glued to the bag.
