More inspiration with Susan

Hello and thanks for stopping by the blog today. It's hard to believe that in a few short days it will be a brand New Year. Have you made any goals or lists of things you'd like to accomplish in 2012 yet? We hope one of your goals is to get in your crafty space, where ever that may be a create more! 
Our goal for 2012 is to keep bringing you more ideas here on our blog to help you create fun and easy projects with our brads and eyelets. In the New Year, you can look forward to more detailed instructions on how to recreate the cards you see here created by our team as well as sketch challenges, easy step by step tutorials and more! We want to help you get out those Eyelet Oulet products and create with them!

Today we are sharing some card inspiration with designer Susan Pollock. 

Happy New Year

For this Happy New Year card, Susan used our Pocket watch brads.

Hugs & Kisses

It's hard to believe that Valentine's Day is just around the corner and this Hugs & Kisses card is perfect for your Valentine! Susan used our Love bug brads for her card. She shares a fun way to make a gift on the front of her card by using a rectangle piece of cardstock and tying a bow to make it look like a gift. 

Thinking of You

To add dimension to the tree, Susan embossed her die cut tree using her Cuttlebug machine by Provocraft. The little Bumble bee brad is a nice touch of spring for this card.

Be sure and share your creations with Eyelet Outlet brads on our Facebook wall! We love seeing what you create with Eyelet Outlet brads. 

Be sure and stop by to see the fun card that Susan Creech has shared!

Holiday wishes from Eyelet Outlet

It's the day after Christmas and all of us in the Eyelet Outlet family hope all of your holiday wishes came true. How many holiday cards did you receive this year that were hand made? I must admit that I got more photo cards than ever this year but I still made my own cards to send out to friends and family.

Today designer Rosangela Philippsen has some fun cards to share with you like this one above featuring our Holiday lights brads and matching Holiday lights ribbon.

Rosangela created this fun card with our Holiday Sock Monkey brads and matching Sock monkey ribbon to send out a little Holiday Joy.

Wednesday inspiration from Pearl

It's officially the holidays with the start of Hanukkah and Christmas is just a few days away. Are you ready to celebrate the holidays with your family? Have you purchased all your gifts? I still have a few more to pick up and then I am done.

Today Pearl is showing us a super cute project if you need any last minute gift ideas for friends or family.

It's Pearl here with a last minute Christmas gift idea . I found these Christmas tree candle holders and thought they would be perfect as brad organizers ( using our Christmas themed brads of course ! ) for a scrappy friend . 

Super Cute don't you think! Pearl also used the same brads to create some cute holiday cards.

Christmas Sock Monkey Blog Hop

We're spreading a little Christmas Cheer here on the blog today with our friend the Christmas Sock Monkey. Some people are crazy for the Elf on the Shelf but around here, the Sock Monkey is King. And we're not the only ones that love the Sock Monkey and we've got the proof! Take a look at all the things we've found Sock Monkey fans like to do with their favorite monkeys...

Some fans like photo ops with their Sock Monkey

Some like to bake with their Sock Monkey

Some like to treat their Sock Monkey to a cup o' Joe

Some fans like to take their Sock Monkey to root for their favorite team

Our designers love to create with our Sock Monkey and Suzanne designed him with a little Christmas cheer so we now call him Christmas Sock Monkey.

Now hop on over to Susan's blog to see how she creates with her Christmas Sock Monkey.

More creations by Suzanne

Hello there. Today we have a few more cards to share that Eyelet Outlet owner Suzanne Marchesano made while she was at the rubber stamp show in York.

Masculine cards like these are a great way to tell the men in our lives we appreciate them. I know that hunting season has started in many parts of the US. You could make some fun cards or scrapbook pages with these woodland creatures.

I don't know about you but I am a two cup girl. I love my morning coffee and this creation is adorable.

Looks like these brads need to get into your shopping cart with the holidays coming quickly!

This is a fun way to add a little something extra to a stamped image.

Speaking of shows...I went to the Ontario Scrapbook Expo a few weeks ago and snapped a few pics of the booth to share with you here on the blog.

It was busy the entire day I was at the show Saturday in the Eyelet Outlet booth! Shoppers were busy looking at all the fun products we had.

Here's a look at some of the wonderful samples displayed at the Eyelet Outlet booth

 There's Susan's cozy fireplace card.

I spy some here from our very own DT Member Kristine Berc.

We hope to see you at our next show in 2012!
