Design Team Monday with Dawn

If you have nieces and nephews,
just check out all the fun you can have when you create cards for them using
Eyelet Outlet brads, bling strips, and enamel shapes!

The little girls in your life will fawn all over these critters, appropriatedly named Fawn Brads.
Add bling strips and enamel stars because every girl is a princess at heart!
The heart brad behind the fawns is a new release as well.

Do you have a nephew who is into legos or building?
He will be wowed by your background construction using Building Block washi tape.
Just two rows of the tape and you have created a patterned element for a card!
This bulldozer is another new brad from the Truck Brad package!  
I added it to a metal ringed tag to get it more of an industrial feel.
But, who doens't love bling??  
(haha...okay, there may be a few nephews out there. 
But I'm sure you can think of how to slip it onto a card for some pizzaz!)

Please rumble on over to the Eyelet Outlet store and scoop up some of the newly released brads to impress your nieces and nephews!

Thanks for stopping by today!  
Feel free to amble on over to my blog,
Sunnyside Up...for more ideas and fun.

Design Team Wednesday with Heather

Hi there! Heather here to share a couple cards using some of the adorable newly released Dragon Brads from Eyelet Outlet, as well as some of the enamel stars and bling.

I made a set of watercolor cards featuring the dragon brads - I made each one different, but you could easily use them as invitations to a birthday party and make a bunch at the same time! 

I used a variety of different colors for my watercolor background, let that dry, then misted with Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine, then let that dry. Added a vellum star cut with a Lawn Fawn die, outlined with a gold pen - and mounted my dragon over that. 

The black banner is cut with a Simon Says Stamp die, and I embossed some sentiments from Neat and Tangled in white on the banners. Finished off with some Gold Enamel Stars, and coordinating Bling from Eyelet Outlet, before mounting on some soft gray cardstock from Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!!!

Design Team Wednesday with Susie

Welcome Eyelet Outlet Fans!
Susie here to share a few projects with you.

If you have kids, or are a grandma like me, you know you always need birthday gift tags.  I made the first one using our Truck Brads.  I just adore the yellow and black.  It was a challenge to find sentiments small enough for my little windows, but I did succeed.  I added some  Enamel Dots to the top of the tag to tie everything together. Then because I have just as many granddaughters as grandsons, I went ahead and made another tag using our Pony Brads.  Can you say adorable?  I added some gems along the top and am stashing these tags away until needed (very soon).

Next I made a little notepad for CARPOOL NOTES.  This is a gift for my daughter who now has a kindergarten student to shuttle back and forth. I just love those little Car Brads.  How could you not?  They were easy to line up and they pretty much tell the whole story.  Beep Beep!!

Be sure to grab some brads and Enamel Dots to make some colorful projects today.
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.

OK friends, before I go I have our winner!!

I love these cards. I have been working on beach/cruise layouts so I can see adopting the beach card to a layout. Thanks for sharing these and I can't wait to be able to purchase some these.

Email us your mailing address to and we'll get your prize pack in the mail to you!!

Design Team Monday with Susan and a winner!!

Happy August, Eyelet Outlet fans! Can you believe how fast summer is going by? It doesn't look like I will make it to the beach this summer, so I brought the beach to me when I made this card.

The Adirondack chairs were created on my Cricut with the "Life's a Beach" cartridge. The sentiment on my card is framed with Eyelet Outlet's brand new sand dollar and star fish corner brads. These brads pair beautifully with our coordinating washi tape.

Supplies Used  
Cricut Life's a Beach Cartridge 
Cricut Explore to Write Sentiment

I had a little fun with our new Dragon Brads with my next card.  These little guys come in three bright colors and I had a hard time choosing which one to use on my card since they are all so cute!  

I used the Cricut Wild Card II cartridge for my castle and the World Bubbles Digital Cartridge to bring my little dragon to life with his PUNNY question! 

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come back soon because in the coming weeks the Design Team will be rolling out more of Eyelet Outlet's brand new products!

We wish we could announce a lucky winner today but no one left a comment on our giveaway post here. 

So we're giving you all a second chance! 

Leave a comment on TODAY'S post, yep right down below and we'll announce Wednesday that one lucky commenter will receive a gift of wonderful Eyelet Outlet goodies in the mail!

Last day with the Paper Nest Dolls

Welcome to the final day of our adventure with Paper Nest Dolls
Susie here to share with you the card I made using the Holiday Ballerina rubber stamp from Paper Nest Dolls along with our Eyelet Outlet Cupcake Brads.

The moment I stamped my little ballerina, I knew she would be holding those cupcakes!  I just love the idea of embellishing stamped images with our brads.  I die cut the "celebrate" from fun foam which made it easy to mold it into the shape I needed.

So what will YOU make today with your Paper Next Doll stamps and Eyelet Outlet brads?  I would love to know!! 

 And don't forget to leave a comment. 

One lucky commenter will receive a gift of wonderful Eyelet Outlet goodies in the mail!

If you have a chance, I would love for you to visit me at The Dies Have It.
