What Did the Chocolate Rabbit Say to the Chicken?

Hello everyone ... I'm Stephanie (you might know me by my crafty moniker SmilynStef), one of the new Design Team members at the Eyelet Outlet.

I'm a pretty fast & furious creator who is always on the lookout for inspiration.  I love using a wide range of styles and products when I create.  I'm a midwesterner who spends my days as a Chief Credit Officer focused on commercial lending ... and my nights and weekends using the other side of my brain creating in my studio.  My husband is a postal carrier, which is the perfect match for a card-making, card-mailing gal.

I love traveling to places I have never been, eating foods I have never tried, and riding in the car with the windows down.  You will never find me without lip balm, dental floss and my sunglasses.  I also love sushi, dark chocolate, and roasted vegetables.

You can find me at my blog Ingenious Inkling ... or at the holiday card blog Jingle Belles that I co-host with fellow Design Team member Lauren.

I'm so glad to be with you today sharing my first Eyelet Outlet card.  I had so much fun creating a little Easter scene using lots of different eyelets and some washi tape too.

It all started with the Chocolate Easter Bunny and the Hey Chickie brad from Easter Bubble Brads.

Then of course the Chicken Brad needed to continue the conversation with another Easter Bubble Brad.

The last step was to invite the Gnome to the party to finish with some Spring Wishes from the Easter Bubble Brads.

I just love all of those happy colors and the fun conversations between all of my fun little creatures.

The final touch was a piece of Enjoy Life Washi Tape, which looks great on the green hills.

Thanks for hanging out with me today.  Make sure you share your Eyelet Outlet creations with us on our Facebook Page.

PS - Remember there's still time to join the February Color Challenge.

  5. What a fantastic story!! It made me happy. Thanks for sharing it. You know I am just trying to find some Easter party ideas for my daughter’s birthday celebration. I wonder if you could suggest some good party ideas as I am going to host a party at an indoor venue NYC but don’t having much idea on how to arrange things.
