October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month

October is not just about tricks and treats, it's about Hope and the fight for a cure for Breast Cancer. Many of you have been affected by cancer in one way or another. The pink ribbon was adopted as the symbol for Breast Cancer Awareness month in 1992. It symbolizes beauty, hope and strength. Let's continue to Hope for a Cure and lift the ones we know who are suffering with our strength and support.

I wanted to make a card to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness month here on the blog and knew our pink sock monkey was perfect for my card.

Even Sock Monkeys believe in Pink

Supplies: Brads: Pink Sock Monkey brads,  patterned paper: Crate Paper, Ribbon: Michaels, Stamped image: Unity Stamp Company October KOTM.

We're pleased to share ScrapBands!

Hello friends! ScrapBands sent us these images telling us how much they love using Eyelet Outlet brads for decorating their product. We loved their unique and fun product and wanted to share it with you here on our blog.

As you can see it's easy to incorporate our brads with this unique product to create a variety of themes.

Here's a little bit about how Scrapbands came about:

The idea for ScrapBands was born in February 2010 when partners Michelle Young and Stacy Jones were scrapbooking in Michelle’s basement. Michelle was working on a scrapbook for her sister whose husband Mark had just passed away after battling cancer for more than a year. The scrapbook was filled with the nearly 100 journals Mark had written during his treatment. Michelle couldn’t bear not to put them all in the book, and the scrapbook ended up being very large and heavy, and the page protectors were tearing. So she needed something to go around the book that would be easy for her sister to take off and on, properly keep the book tightly closed, and look pretty, too!

With the help of her mother-in-law and passionate sewer, Betty, Michelle hand sewed the ScrapBands prototype and knew immediately she had something unique! Since then, Michelle and Stacy have been marketing the product to scrapbookers and retailers around the U.S.

ScrapBands are U.S. patent-pending, handmade in the U.S.A., and one-of-a-kind among scrapbooking accessories.

ScrapBands are the fun new scrapbook accessory that goes around scrapbooks to help keep them closed and contents secure. Check out all the great ScrapBands designs at"

Now we'd love for you to head over to the ScrapBands Facebook page and tell them we sent you! 
If you do, you'll be entered into a drawing for a free ScrapBand (The FREE band will be one of their "Bare" style ScrapBands) drawing will be held Thursday, Oct. 20th. Good Luck!

Layout inspiration with Ro

It's another week of inspiration here at the Eyelet Outlet blog. I'm always telling other crafters that brads are not just for cards and today designer Ro shows you just that with her latest creation for Eyelet Outlet.

Here are a few close ups of the Eyelet Outlet products that Ro used.

It's easy to add dimension to any project with rounds brads like Ro did here by adding them into the center of the flowers on this pattern paper from the Audrey collection by My Little Shoebox.

There's our cute Love Bug brads too!

We've got a brad for whatever your project is. Be sure and visit our website to see all of our current products!
