Hi, I'm Lauren, and I'm excited to be here! Being chosen for the Eyelet Outlet design team isn't all fun and games, though. It actually gave me the best "problem" ever: Which of the many, many, awesome styles of Eyelet Outlet shaped brads should I use first? Turns out, it's impossible to choose just one. So I didn't.
I've been jotting down project ideas in this little notebook for a while, but it still had a plain, not-very-inspiring kraft paper cover.
Now it's bursting with color and I can't wait to make something else... in fact I think I'll go do that right now. I hope you will, too!
Eyelet Outlet goodies used in this project:
(I'm kind of hoping this *might* be a record, in terms of quantity, lol!)
PS: The light bulb icon is hand-drawn, but it was inspired by
these adorable Light Bulb Brads which I predict you'll love as much as I do! ♥
My name is Lauren and I love making stuff, especially out of paper. I love collage, art journaling, gift wrapping, altered art, mixed media and --especially-- making cards. I've never met an embellishment I didn't love, but the *sparkly* ones are my favorites! Vintage paper is like catnip to me. I like projects with LOTS of layers and tons of texture. I spend more time thinking about adhesives than the average person. Ideas sometimes wake me up at night. I love bright colors, found objects and... did I mention... sparkly things? There is usually ink, paint, dye or embossing paste stuck to me somewhere, and often a little bit of each. To answer the two questions I get asked the most: YES, I am always this silly, and YES, I know there's glitter on my face. My personal blog is called All the Good Blog Names Were Taken and I'd love for you to come visit me there.
