Design Team Wednesday with Shemaine

Hello Eyelet Outlet fans! Shemaine here today sharing more holiday card inspiration. We have so many fun holiday brads available at I have a few faves I love to use for creating my Christmas cards. Today I wanted to share them with you.

First is this quick and easy card I made using our Poinsettia brads.

EE Supplies: 
Poinsettia brads
  sparkle enamel dots
     clear bling

I stamped the Adornment image from Penny Black and then decorated it with ribbon, brads and bling.
Then I finished it off with a My Favorite Things sentiment.

for my next card I decided to wrap it up like a gift.

EE Supplies: 
Snowflake brads
red sparkle enamel dots
Green glitter tape

I stamped the kraft paper with a trio of mixed snowflakes and then added some matching brads and accented with enamel dots. Then I used the glitter tape to create a "brown paper packeges tied up with string" look. I finished it off with a fun tag.

Both of these cards were created in under 15 mins! 

Share with us what you are making with Eyelet Outlet products on our Facebook page!

Have a great day!

Check out Alice's creation! How fun is this! I love that she used the cookie brads to make a banner and a candy cane for the nose of the snowman!

Wednesday inspiration with Alice

Christmas has officially started! I feel bad that Thanksgiving is not represented as much because everyone is rushing to get to Christmas, or maybe I am wrong. If you are, check out these super duper fun holiday brads from Eyelet Outlet. We also carry these new Enamel Dots with a sticky back that you are going to die over. There are a ton of styles to choose from so get them before it's all gone.

Look at this incredible arrangement of holiday goodies from Eyelet Outlet! These brads are to die for and the washi tape is ADORABLE!!!!! Yikes, I could squeal from all the excitement!!!

I pulled washi tape strips across the card and created a window using a tree die for an opening. I love that you can see all the goodies peeking out from under the die cut opening.

Design Team Monday with Dawn

Christmas is all about style...
So, just what is your style?

Are you a country Christmas...
with lots of decorations and heirloom knick knacks...
the more the better?


Or are you refined and sophisticated?
With clean lines and very few baubles to show case?

Supplies from Eyelet Outlet:

Luckily, this is not a competition.
Both of these Christmas styles is valid, loved, enjoyed, and special.
And...the Eyelet Outlet can keep you in embellishments for both of these styles as well!

Thanks so much for joining me, Dawn Mercedes of Sunnyside Up, today.
I hope your are well on your way to designing your holiday cards!!

Enjoy the day!

Layout inspiration with washi tape and bling

Happy November Eyelet Outlet fans!! Can you believe the holiday season is upon us. This week I'm sharing some ideas for dressing up the holiday papers for your pages.


 This was a beautiful paper out of a holiday pack I've had for awhile. I struggled with how to use it because I didn't want to cut it up, so I used my washi tape, bling, and jewels to add texture and dress 
it up.


 Be sure to check out the other designer's posts for card inspiration. 

 Happy crafting!

Design Team Thursday with Susie

Welcome Eyelet Outlet Fans!
Susie here with two new Christmas projects for you.

My first offering today is a dimensional Christmas card.  There are three white layers with dimensional tape between each.  I added our Holly Brads to the top corners and then I decided one of our Holiday Tree Brads would be really cute in this snowy scene too.  I added some of our Pearl Bling to the trees and some around the top layer as well.

Next up is a small 4.5 x 4 gift card.  I thought this would be lovely on a shimmery green package.  I stamped and colored my wreath and then added our Pearl Bling for the berries.  That's it for now, but be sure to stay tuned here at the blog. We will be back with more inspiration in just a few days!
If you have a chance, 
I would love for you to visit me at The Dies Have It.

Design Team Monday with Annette

Hello Eyelet Outlet Friends and Fans! This is Annette. It's beginning to look a lot like CHRISTMAS on the blog today. We are starting off the month of November with lots of inspiration for your Christmas cards, tags, gift card holders and other holiday projects. My first card uses the brand new Christmas Cookie brads. I used non-traditional colors like blue and gray on the card, too, but the Christmas spirit is in the cookies!

Products Used:
Card number two consists primarily of brads and bling for a sparkly, festive Christmas wreath that is both merry and bright!

Products Used:
I hope these cards give you some ideas for handmade Christmas cards. Stay tuned for more Christmas inspiration this month.
