Design team Wednesday with Shemaine

Hello Eyelet Outlet fans! Shemaine here to share a couple of cards I made recently with our newest brads. I'm on my way to the show in Texas at the Great American Scrapbook Convention today. I can tell you that even I can't wait to visit the Eyelet Outlet booth! We hope to see you at the show

This is a fun card with a stamped image from Unity Stamp Co. The cherry brad was perfect to embellish my card with.

A very special thank you

Patterned paper: My Mind's Eye, Wilton doily, Ribbon by Offray, Stamped image: Unity Stamp Co. Cherry brad: Eyelet Outlet.

You can never have too much happy

Design Team Monday with Kristine

Hey there Eyelet Outlet fans!  Kris here today hoping to inspire your creativity with Eyelet Outlet brads.

I love to decorate gift bags... it adds such a nice personal touch to gifts.
I picked this plain kraft bag up from the dollar store
and embellished it with some wonderful brads and ribbon.
While I was at it, I made a matching card and envelope.
Our ribbons and brads make it so easy
to dress up gifts and other projects!

One can never have too many thank-you cards on hand.
A wonderful thing about Eyelet Outlet is the huge variety of
decorative brads and ribbon to choose from.
Here I've used the sewing ribbon with dress form and thread brads.

Who can resist the super cute strawberry brads and fruit ribbon?!
Paired with a "sweet" sentiment, they make an adorable card
for a sweetie in your life.

Design Team inspiration with Anna

Good Morning Friends, Anna here! I have a little inspiration for you today. This is a gift set for best friend. I made romantic card, the recipe book and a small paper cupcake. I hope that you like it!

The Cup and Mixer ribbon makes a nice border for my card.

And the matching Cup and Mixer brads with the Cherry brads are nice for the cover of my notebook.

The strawberry brad in the center of the flower looks sweet too!

I really enjoyed using Mixer & Cup Brads, ribbon, Strawberry Brads and Cherry Brads on my projects today- they are so yummy!!!

Have a great day!
