Last minute Easter inspiration

With Easter just days away we thought we'd share some last minute Easter inspiration with you today. I always make a home made card for my Mother in Law since she hosts a nice dinner and fun Easter egg hunt for the girls. The girls have created some fun things to help you create that last minute project.

First from an adorable card from Kerry.

Easter Eggstravaganza

Supplies: Rabbits pastel brads, Martha Stewart border punch, Trendy Twine (chocolate truffle), ribbon, basket die cut (from Cricut Stretch your Imagination), sentiment from Amuse Eggstravaganza, Hero Art shadow ink cup O' Joe.

Next we're sharing something really fun from Nicole.

Nicole used a cute free printable called Bunny Cotton Tails to make two treat bags for her Easter baskets. Here's the link for the printable she used.


And finally, a little one layer card from Megan.

Some bunny loves you

Design team Tuesday with Nicole

Hi it is Nicole. It is Spring and almost time for Easter.  I am so excited!  Even though we still have 2 feet of snow outside I am still in the spring spirit!  I created for you one of my favorite Easter projects yet.  Here in Norway they give paper mache eggs to the kids instead of Easter baskets.  Many of the crafty ladies here decorate their eggs and make them extra special.  Even though I felt like I didnt know where to start I decided to give it ago... Here is my final result...

 For the card and the egg I used Webster Pages patterned paper and fussy cut out flowers.  On the card I used a piece of Pink Paislee pattern paper.  The seam binding I used to tie the bow is from Paper Loves Glue and the flowers are from Prima and various other companies.  The stamp sentiment is from Unity Stamps.  Lace, ribbon and russian veiling are from my personal stash.

The products you can find in the Eyelet Outlet store are the pearl strips of bling and the dragonfly brads.  . There are several different color choices available for the dragon fly brads  and used brads from both dragonfly brads bright and dragonfly brads pastel  I used them on both the card and on the egg; I simply just poked them into the bouquet of flowers.  I know that they might be hard to see in the pictures above so I have a few close up pictures.

THE CARD-  There is a purple and blue dragonfly on the big blue flower and then of course the two on the creme background.

THE EGG- Below are pictures of all four sides of the egg and then a close closeup of one of the dragon flies.  There are 5 dragon flies total on the egg.  Picture one there is a yellow and pink one on the peach flower right in the front,  a lavendar and blue one on the green curly wire in the upper right hand corner and a blue and yellow on another green curly wire in the left hand upper corner.

Picture 2 has a yellow and blue one on the purple and white flower and a lavendar and blue on right above it over the white flower.

Picture 3 is of the back side of the egg.  Once again you can see the yellow and blue one over the purple and  white flower and then another one that is yellow and pink over the blue flower under the veil towards the right of the picture.

Picture 4 is a very upclose picture which you can plainly see a yellow and pink dragonfly.

Happy Easter!

Design Team Monday with Megan

Hello Eyelet Outlet fans! I am so excited to be here as a new member of the design team!

For my first creation to share with you, I made this fun vintage sewing themed card using one of these adorable thread brads. All things sewing seem to be pretty hot right now because when I looked into my stash, I found all sorts of things that I wanted to incorporate! I gave the brad a spot of honor on the sentiment label and added a real crocheted doily, some pins and some sewing themed stamped images.

What else is hot right now? Hexagons or honeycombs! I just got this fun embossing folder and thought it went great with these Bumble bee brads for a bright spring card.

Thanks for stopping by the Eyelet Outlet blog for my big debut today!

Have a great day!

Design Team Monday with Susie

Hello Eyelet Outlet Fans! 

I wanted to share this sweet little baby card with you and show you how easy it is to make a linear card that still packs some punch, so out came the duck brads.  They are so bright and cheerful that they make the card pop.  On the smaller circles I used some yellow stippled jewel brads.  I just love the clean lines of this card with such cuties swimming across the front. 

Now for card #2: 

For this card, I kept the linear look, but added the cute puppy brads to the top left section of the card and the sentiment to the bottom right.  This card is just waiting to cheer someone who is having a "ruff" day.

I hope you like today's cards.  
I am showcasing the first one on my blog today.  
I welcome you anytime at The Dies Have It.
