Let's give a warm welcome to May's Guest Designer!

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! MLS has great mini alphas, perfect for card making.

Another thing I like to use is pattern paper because it just makes everything bright and fun.

Here’s a card I created using Eyelet Outlet lady bugs. I love pairing Eyelet Outlet with stamps…what a great mix!

I thought I make a tag to change things up a bit. If you love these dolls stamps you can pair them up with Eyelet Outlet Sunglasses, Butterflies and oh so much more!

Thank you Eyelet Outlet for such a warm welcome and beautiful products to create with!

Have a great day!

Design Team Wednesday with Annette

Hello Eyelet Outlet Fans. I have a couple fun cards to share today. Since becoming a mother, I find myself easily distracted all the time - although not by squirrels, cupcakes or sales. I'm distracted by someone wanting a drink, someone else saying "Mommy, Look!" 

Then in the meantime, the one with the drink would end up spilling it and I would have to clean it up. All the while trying to make dinner and answer the phone! LOL! This card uses the squirrel, cupcake and shoe brads, as well as some nice, shiny bling. The stamps are from the same set called Easily Distracted by Sweet Stamp Shop. I had no problem finding brads that complemented the sentiments because of the huge selection available at the store

Card number two is a get well card using the frog brad set and umbrella brads. Once again, because Eyelet Outlet has a such a variety of brads, I was able to easily create a scene with them in the card below. 

Have a great week!

Design Team Monday with Susie

Welcome Eyelet Outlet Fans!
Susie here to share a few cards with you.  I've been in the mood to create some bright cards lately which is how my first card came to be. I die cut my camera/hello sentiment with my Cameo.  Everything looked so plain until I realized that it would be fun to have something popping out of the lens.  Don't you just love this kitty cat brad?  Once he entered the picture (pun intended), the rest of my card just came together!

Next I wanted to do something with the adorable shoe and purse brads.   This set has both, but I ended up using just one purse because it made sense with my sentiment.  What do you think?

Be sure to grab some sassy brads today and make a card to send to someone you love.  And be sure to stay tuned here at the blog. We always have something fun to share with you and inspire you! If you have a chance, I would love for you to visit me at The Dies Have It.

Design Team Wednesday with Susan

This is the season that bridal showers and wedding invitations begin to show up on our schedules. Susan here, to help you get ready for the June brides in your life. My first card is inspired by a plaque that hangs over my kitchen sink that was actually a wedding gift to my grandparents many, many years ago.

I used my "Sweethearts," Cricut cartridge for the romantic couple and then embellished the heart with Eyelet Outlet jeweled bling strip.

The bride will surely chuckle when she opens this card and finds the rest of the sentiment and a sink full of Eyelet Outlet pots and pans!

Supplies Used: Baking Brads, Cooking Brads, Red Jeweled Bling Strip, Cricut Cartridges (Sweethearts, Suburbia, Chore Chart, & Edge to Edge)
Now for something more elegant!  After embossing the wedding dress on this card, outlining some of the embossed areas with Eyelet Outlet Pearl Bling Strips took this dress over the top! 


On the inside of the card, I used an Eyelet Outlet hanger brad to hang the bride's veil on the mirror.

Supplies Used:  White Pearl Bling Strip, Hanger Brads, Cricut Cartridges (Formal Occasions, Forever Young, & Sweethearts)
Hope you've enjoyed today's cards!  Come on back Monday and see what Design Team Member Susie has to share!

Design Team Monday with Kerry

Hello Eyelet Outlet friends and happy Monday!

I have a couple of projects with share with you today.  

First up, I had so much fun making the butterfly tag last week.  I can't help to make another one. 
Do you like her skirt?   I used circle washi tape, I adhered the tape on a piece of card stock, then I stamped the image, then cut it out.  I love the bright color, so fun!

Here is the whole tag.  I added strips washi tape pink and brown on the bottom of the tag, some jewel bling strips, and hearts & dots enamels.

Others:  Prima dolls, tag, Copic markers, gold ribbon

Next up, how about a card?

Eyelet Outlet:  Daisy flowers brads (bright & pastel), jewel bling strips, enamel butterfly
Others:  Paper Smooches word salad stamp set, Memory Box curvy stem

I hope you like them and thanks so much for stopping by!

Design Team Wednesday with Heather

Good morning! Heather here to share a couple cards using some fun brads, bling, and washi tape from from Eyelet Outlet.

It has finally been feeling like spring and summer are coming to Wyoming - and while I know there are likely to still be some snow showers in our future (this week I believe as a matter of fact!) - we have been enjoying the warmer temperatures anyway! So...I have a couple cards to celebrate that:

First up this bright and cheerful card. I layered up some of the paper flowers from Eyelet Outlet, with a nice big pearl brad in the center, then added some leaves to the sides. I put some pearl bling strips along the side, and also cut a few apart to scatter around my flower for some perfectly coordinating color.

Here are the supplies I used for this card:

Eyelet Outlet Supplies:

Other Supplies: 
Sentiment: Unity Stamp Co. "Grandma's Closet"
Pattern Paper: Basic Grey "Persimmon" 6x6 Paper Pad
Misc: Doily, Hemptique Twine

Next up a summer inspired card:

For this one I stamped and paper pieced a fun swimsuit image on a die cut rectangle, added some sparkle with clear Stickles, and then added some sunglasses to the ensemble - a very necessary accessory! Layered up several different paper flowers, with a pearl brad in the center, then trimmed a banner for my sentiment. Attached the swimsuit panel with some coordinating washi tape.

Eyelet Outlet Supplies:

Other Supplies:
Metal Dies: Lawn Fawn
Rubber Stamps: Unity Stamp Co "Spirit of Summertime"
Pattern Paper: Basic Grey "Hey You" 6x6 Paper Pad
Misc: Stickles 

Thanks for stopping by! Hope spring and summer have arrived wherever you live! Have a great day!!!
