So we had a little fun in St. Charles

Hello Eyelet fans! We had a great time in St. Charles meeting so many of you that stopped in our booth and at Friday night's crop.
At the crop, Eyelet Outlet owner Suzanne Marchesano brought some eyelets and challenge: Using a bag of brads, the participants had one hour to create a project. Suzanne would choose a winner and the prize was some Eyelet Outlet goodies.

 Here's what some of our challengers came up with.

Design Team Monday with Susie

Happy Monday and hello Eyelet fans! I'm excited to introduce one of the new designers to the Eyelet Outlet team today! Please give a warm welcome to...

Susie Moore

We'll let Susie take it from here for today's post!

I am super excited to bring you my first post as a design team member for Eyelet Outlet.  I have three cards to show you today – all very different, and all very FUN!

 My first card is in anticipation of fall’s arrival.  I am ready for some cooler weather and this card just gets me in the mood.  To accentuate the autumn theme, I used three leaf brads that I thought really complemented the stamped image.  I didn’t line them up because leaves are just random as they fall - thus the randomness on the card.

And here is a close up of those wonderful leaf brads:

My next card just makes me smile.  Who could resist those precious Woodland Animal Brads and matching ribbon?  I knew I couldn’t!  To make the ruffles, I gathered the ribbon a bit and then stapled it in place.  Then I placed another layer of paper over that to hide the staples.  I love the dimension it gives.  Then of course, I needed a few animals to complete the card.  These guys were just the ticket!

Now here is a close up shot of the trim and eyelets.  I hope you like them as much as I do!

My final card makes the girly girl in me smile.  I had no problem finding the perfectly colored brads to match my papers.  I love the look of these beautiful pearl brads in green. The addition of these pearl brads just finished this card – not too much – just enough!

And here is a close up shot of those three brads lined up in the top right hand corner:

Thanks for taking a look at my creations for Eyelet Outlet.  I would love for you to see more of my work at my blog, The Dies Have It.

Design Team Wednesday with Taylor

Hello Eyelet fans! I'm excited to introduce one of the new designers to the Eyelet Outlet team today! Please give a warm welcome to...

Taylor Usry!

I'll let Taylor take it from here for today's post

Hi there!  It's Taylor here today, with my first ever post as part of the Eyelet Outlet team - woohoo!  I have three fun cards to share today, the first of which uses the super-fun small eye brads. HOW stinkin' cute do they look on that owl?

I went a little nuts with the cute factor on my second couldn't be helped.  The adorable lawn mushroom brads and the gnome ribbon paired together just make me happy!

And to wrap things up, I have a pretty autumn card - because, well, autumn is my favorite time of year!  The leaf brads are sort of perfect for this card, because those two green leaves fit perfectly on top of images that are very similar, and give it just the right pop of color!

Thanks for stopping by today - feel free to head over to my blog or Facebook page to check out more of my work!

Design Team Monday with Jingle

Hello, Eyelet Outlet friends! I am SO excited to share some projects using the BRAND NEW brads available at Eyelet Outlet! I couldn't have been MORE excited about the new releases, so I just dove right in! My first card uses the SUPER FUN gnome and mushroom brads! I love how the colors of these two packs coordinate perfectly! Just a simple hello that is bound to bring a smile to anyone's face!

Hello Gnome

My second card uses the beautiful deer brad! I love how pretty these are!

Miss You

Combined with the right stamps and embellishments, you can do so much with these beautiful brads! And finally, I have a simple fall card using the gorgeous fall leaf brads! I love the variety in this pack!

Be the Change

A sentiment about change seemed to suit these brads perfectly!

If you haven't checked out the newest releases RUN over to the store! You don't want to miss these!!!

Design Team Monday with Nicole

Hi Eyelet Outlet friends!  It's Nicole posting from cold, wet Norway!  Today I have three projects for you...  2 cards and a layout.  For the cards I have used some of the brand new just released brads and ribbon and for the layout I used some of the other popular Quicklets and brads that you can find in the store.
So let's dive in and see the projects.

This card was created using the new Gnome brads and the Lawn Mushroom brads as well as the Gnome ribbon and the Lawn Mushroom Ribbon...  These are brand new and just added to the store!!!!

Also brand new are these adorable deer brads... I can think of so many fun projects to use these brads on such as masculine layouts or even for the Christmas holiday... they are just so perfect...

Finally here is my layout... I used the Quicklet Anchors and jazzed up the ticket... Can you see where I used the brads well that is right I used  white and red mini brads in with the paint dot stickers to give my paint splatters more dimension... Oh how I love this technique!  I am sooo in love with the mini round brads!

Here are a couple of close ups of the brads and Quicklets....

Have a great day!  Don't forget to check out all of the new releases by clicking here...
