Guest Designer Monday

Hello Eyelet Outlet friends. We are please to have a Alice Carman as our Guest Designer for December.

My name is Alice Carman and I’m super excited to guest design for Eyelet Outlet.  I love making cards so when I was asked to create a few samples,  I was over the moon excited.  I’ve been asked what my card making style is and honestly, I have no idea.  I dabble in everything…after all its crafting and who doesn’t like that!  However, I do like to layer my cards.  I use a lot of product so I guess you could say it’s not clean and simple.  I also use a lot of stickers and alphabets…love them!  Eyelet Outlet has great brads that are perfect embellishments for card making.

We gave Alice some of our favorite holiday eyelets and asked her to create some fabulous cards to share with you. Here's a look at what she came up with.

Ho Ho Ho...

Supplies: Bo Bunny Mistletoe collection, Spellbinder die and Tim Holtz die

Making Things Bright card

Supplies: Hampton Art Stamp, Canvas Corp paper, white pen, Paper Smooches stamp and Stickles

And we asked her to create a little non-holiday card

Eye-Scream card

Supplies: Bo Bunny Mistletoe collection and Taylored Expressions Stamps

We'd like to thank Alice for sharing these fun cards with us today.

To see more of Alice's cards please visit her blog Cards by Alice.

There is still time for you to get your holiday cards in the mail!

Have a great day.

Design Team Inspiration with Nicole

A big hello to all of you from me (Nicole)  here in the North of Norway... which you as you might know is just hop skip and jump from the North Pole!  It is a wonderful time of the year here in Norway and because we are above the Arctic Circle we have the dark time of the year... yep right now we don't have the sun... It comes up to the horizon so we have twilight for about 2 or 2.5 hours but never actually crosses the horizon so the rest of the day is dark.  I don't mind it so much but it is hard to try and get pictures of projects.. really hard! But I try and today I actually have two types of projects to share with you today... a layout and gift tags for Christmas presents.

On this layout I used both the big snowflake brads and the small snowflake brads... Each of the big paper snowflakes I used a clear rhinestone bling

I love to make tags at Christmas for presents and I have found that brads are the perfect thing to embellish them with. I made three different kinds of tags this year.  The first were the same kind I made last year but this time I used the new 2012 Christmas brads... If you would like to see the tutorial for how to make these tags you can click here....

For this year I made two other kinds of tags...One out of buttons and brads and the other out of brads and rub ons...

I used the following brads when making all three types of tags...
I also used the Mitten Ribbon to coordinate with the holiday mitten brads. 

Merry Christmas!

Design Team Wednesday with Jingle

Hello! Today I have three fun holiday cards to share with you using some fun holiday brads!

Gumdrop Christmas

I used the fun gumdrop brads on this one. Instead of going with lots of bright colors, I decided on a homey feel, making the brads the pop of both color and whimsy for this card.

Mitten Wreath

For this one, I hung the adorable mitten brads from the wreath as a fun accent! I love the colors in this mitten collection!

Christmas Walrus

And this last one is just plain FUN! A SUPER cute Christmas walrus ready to play Santa! YAY! LOL! I hope you have enjoyed these fun cards! Have fun creating!

Design Team Monday with Susie

Happy Monday!!
I have three cards to show you today.  All of my cards are birthday themed.  I know it is the holiday season, but we always need birthday cards.  Right?
So here is my first card.  I used some of our new bling on my colored image.  This bling is like no other - because it actually sticks to the paper.  I loved using these pearls because I know they will still be on the card when it is sent through the mail.

My next card is a fun little birthday number for you.  I think these eyeglass brads are super "cool" and I hope you do too. Now this card could be for a cool guy OR girl.
 Here is a closer look:

And now to complete my birthday card spree!  Here is a decidedly feminine birthday card with lots of extra bling on it.  These pearls are just the absolute best!

Here is a close up of the image and the pearls:

Thanks for taking a look at my creations for Eyelet Outlet today. I hope you have enjoyed today's post.  I would love for you to see more of my work at my blog, The Dies Have It.

Design Team Wednesday with Susie

Hello Wednesday friends! It's another fun day for me here at Eyelet Outlet. I had this beautiful fall-ish paper and I wanted to make something special with it.  What better than a nice fall greeting card?

I cut two circles with a die and then folded in the sides to make squares.  I inked all the edges so that my little banners would show up against the same floral background. Then of course came the eyelets.  I used the Big Flower Brads in green and then added some cute round orange brads for the centers.  These flowers were the perfect embellishment for my banners. 

To finish the card, I strung my banners on twine and then added some of the new bling that Eyelet Outlet is selling now.  I am totally in love with it because the pearls actually stick to the paper!  I know!  Swoon! 

 I would love for you to see more of my work at my website, The Dies Have It.  I hope to see you soon!

Design Team Monday with Shemaine

Hello Monday! First we'd like to say Happy Veteran's Day to all our Veterans and active military. We appreciate your service.

Today I'm sharing a couple of cards created with our newest brads.

First I created a masculine birthday card with the Army Men brads.

For this card I kept it real simple. I used a Unity Stamp image stamped in Army green in by Studio G. Then used a strip of washi tapefrom Love My Tapes and stamped the sentiment which is also from Unity Stamp Co. Finally, I used a Spellbinder die to layer a Jillibean soup tag and added the Army Men brads.

Next the holidays are all down hill from here. I'm planning my 25 days of Holiday Cards on my blog begining Dec 1st so I created a fun holiday card using the Gnome and Lawn Mushroom brads.
For this card I used the new Aspen Frost collection from Basic Grey. I also used a tree die from Lil Inker Designs to create a holiday scene. Next I added the brads and then stamped my sentiment.
Finally here is a layout I created of my daughter and her soccer team.
For this layout I used the Vintage Shop collection from My Little Shoebox. It was easy to add our soccer ball brads to this layout.
That's it for today. Please check out our Facebook page and post your creations with your Eyelet Outlet brads.

Happy Wednesday! I have three cards to show you today.  I must have been in a blue paper mood, because two of them are lovely shades of blue.  The last one though, is my favorite and it is a holiday card for you. So here is my first card.  I used a 12mm Pearl Creme Brad  to anchor my seam binding bow.  I just love the elegant look this gives to the card.
Here is a close up picture:

Now for my next card.  It has lots of embellishments, but the ones that I love the most are the Anodized Star Brads.  The card itself is masculine and these brads just keep the theme flowing.

 Here is a closer look:

And now to my holiday card.  Yes, it is time for holiday cards!  Can you believe it?   I used the  Deer Brads on either side of my letters.  Don't you just love that there is a left and a right one?  This pack is full of each - both light and dark too.  Pretty clever!!

Here they are ready for their close up:

Thanks for taking a look at my creations for Eyelet Outlet today. I hope you have enjoyed today's post.  I would love for you to see more of my work at my blog, The Dies Have It.
