Hello Eyelet Outlet fans! Today we have some Valentine inspiration for you using a few non-Valentine styles of our brads. Can you believe it's just a few weeks away? What do you do for your sweet heart on Valentine's Day? We'd love to hear your love stories so don't be shy...leave us a comment telling us how you celebrate your love on this special day. I'll choose a lucky commenter to win a mix of our fun brads and announce it here on the blog next Monday! For those of you who love stamps with people our glasses and hat brads are a fun way to add something extra to your sweet stamped images.
Susie created this fun Valentine themed card with us today featuring our eye glasses brads.
Next we're sharing a few projects by Shemaine Smith. First up is a cute card featuring our sock monkey brad.
You make me Steamy
"I love creating with kraft cardstock. This fun image from Unity Stamp Company is even cuter when I added the sock monkey to the top of my cup of Joe."
Next Shemaine used some of the 8mm stipple jewel brads and pearl strips to accent this sweet card.
This is a picture of my daughter and my sister's daughter. My family lives back in California while we live in the North of Norway so they only get to see each other once or at the very most twice a year. When they are together they are sooo happy. God really blessed me with these two little girls... and their happiness is such a treasure!
I fussy cut the jar from pattern paper attached the butterfly brads to it, and wrapped it with a bit of twine... I then couldnt help but add a few butterflies flying out of the jar and sewed a little trail behind each of the brads.
Hello Eyelet Outlet fans! We're back from the Craft and Hobby trade show. We loved seeing our customers and meeting new ones. It was really cold in Anaheim for this time of year. I am sure our owner, Suzanne would tease me for saying that since she is used to the cold and this California girl is definitely not. The show was lots of fun. We had Andrea come and help out and she was fantastic! It is always nice to see Suzanne and lucky for me our paths are crossing more this year when I head back down to Anaheim at the end of the month to help out for the Scrapbook Expo and teach again at GASC. Here's a pic we snapped at CHA in the booth.
Can you believe that Suzanne had just ran a Marathon! She's amazing!
We had fun sharing the new Eyelet Outlet brads and here are a few peeks for you.
Bright balloon brads
Pastel balloon brads
Pastel Bunny brads
Natural Bunny brads
We'll have more peeks here on the blog and Facebook page so stay tuned!

Hello Eyelet Outlet Fans!
I was so inspired by Anna's beautiful card on Monday! I know you were also. It is drab and winetry here too, so I wanted to make a card to put us into the pink of things!
What do you think? All of my supplies are from Authentique to help us get into the mood for Valentine's Day.
The card really needed to be blinged up a bit...so enter the star of the show - one 16mm pink Stipple Jewel Brad.
I also used just a tiny line of our wonderful White Pearl Bling Strip on one of the mini valentines.
I hope you like today's card. I am showcasing it on my blog today.
Happy New Year, Eyelet Outlet Fans! This is Jennifer and it is so great to be starting the year out with some fun cards today! Also, keep an eye on the blog over the entire month of January because we have some AWESOME new releases coming out and you will NOT want to miss these!!!
Today I want to start with a fun New Year's card I created using a whole bunch of super pretty brads! They are much like little twinkling stars in the sky!
For this one, I received these awesome stamps for Christmas and had to use this set! (I used it on the card above, too! SO fun!) When I saw this GIANT gem brad in my stash I knew it would be the perfect fit! I love how big and shiny and amazing it is! YAY!
