Thanksgiving Favor Boxes

Who doesn't want pumpkin pie on their Thanksgiving table?! Today I'm sharing the recipe for one that is surprisingly simple to make and your family will surely enjoy. It's easy as pie!  😄

The file for these drawer pie boxes is from I've embellished the pie slices with Eyelet Outlet's pumpkin washi tape and pumpkin brads and pilgram hat brads. Our leaf brads would also be beautiful. 

The whipped cream is a rolled flower from the Cricut image library and is cut from felt with the rotary blade on my Cricut Maker. Won't they make cute place cards on the table?!  

The window bakery box is from Cricut's Sweet Tooth Boxes image set and the tag is a combination of images from the Cricut image library embellished with a cute little Eyelet Outlet fork brad from the silverware brad set.  

If you'd like to create these for your Thanksgiving guests, I've put together a tutorial to take the guess work out of sizing. Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful crafty day!

"You Call Me a Witch..."

A couple of weeks ago I (Lauren) saw a Halloween card with this sentiment on it and literally laughed out loud. Of course, I'm bound to say I think a version which includes Eyelet Outlet Witch Hat and Witch Leg Brads is even better, right?

I made my focal point sentiment with my trusty Dymo Labelmaker, but swapped out the word "witch" in favor of some glamorous enamel and rhinestone letter stickers. I added a Witch Hat Brad to the sweet little patterned paper icon, and affixed my Witch Leg Brads to the background underneath where the circle would go. I couldn't resist the finishing touch of a Spider Brad in one corner and a pair of Mini Spider Brads dangling from machine stitches in the other.

Wishing you a very Happy Halloween if you're celebrating tomorrow, or just an especially nice Thursday if you're not. ♥

You Are My Hero

I recently returned from a trip to Pearl Harbor where I met the oldest living surviver of the attack. In addition to that, Veteran's Day is just around the corner. Needless to say, I'm feeling very grateful for those who serve our country in the armed forces. Therefore for today's card I've gone with that theme.

A Cornucopia of Brads!

Eyelet Outlet has everything you need to fill your Thanksgiving cornucopia full to the brim!  

This cornucopia SVG from Miss Kate's Cuttables was cute on its own with its cardstock fruits and vegetables, but I decided to substitute them with Eyelet Outlet brads instead.  

I've used our apple brads, pumpkin brads, grape brads, and accented with our leaf brads.  

You can find all these and more amazing products for your fall projects at Eyelet Outlet or find us at one of the upcoming trade shows!

Another Year Races By

I (Lauren) may be slightly obsessed with the new Eyelet Outlet Classic Car Brads, so please forgive me if I overuse them! For today I just have two cards, which seems manageable, right?

A great many of my cards start with a sentiment. In this case, my first idea was inspired by the fact that the Classic Car Brads look pretty sporty, which made me think of racing, and of course the older I get the faster the years race by! I printed my sentiment in a font called Cafe Rojo on a clear inkjet label and stuck it to a little paper flag. I made a fun background from a slightly distressed green patterned paper that I adorned with randomly placed strips of Tire Track Washi Tape, and punched a few 1" circles in the panel. Then I affixed the Car Brads to scraps of vintage map that i had backed with some plain white cardstock and adhered those BEHIND the punched circles, so my cars appeared through the windows.

My second idea was inspired by the Revved Up Gift Set I made this summer. It featured a vintage car illustration cut from an old falling apart book, but it occurred to me that if I scaled everything down to a smaller size, the same basic idea would work with the Classic Car Brads. I diecut some small nested label shapes and set my Car Brads, along with a Compass Brad. Then I set about building a card to hold them!

Nearly everything I used was also featured in the Gift Set, I just made it all a bit smaller to fit an A2 card. I placed artfully torn Brick Tape and strips of Sparkle Copper Foil Tape in a horizontal band across the card. I layered on some blueprint-inspired patterned paper, then added more tape: the Tire Track Washi and some fun Map Tape. I used another computer printed sentiment, this one in my favorite typewriter font, which reads, "You're a Classic"!

I hope you'll be inspired to RACE over to the Eyelet Outlet Store and grab some Classic Car Brads for yourself! ♥

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Today I'm bringing you a couple of sweet rosette angels I created in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.

One  angel is beautifully embellished with Eyelet Outlet Fancy Pearl and Jewel Bling and the other with Pink Jewel Strips.  

The white rosettes at the top were embellished with Eyelet Outlet Silver Glitter Washi Tape. I applied the embellishments to the rosettes before fan folding them.  

And finally,  attached to each angel's sign is an Eyelet Outlet Pink Ribbon Quicklet. Text on the signs is available in the Cricut image library.  The faces on the angels are digital stamps from Peachy Keen Stamps.  

Thanks for stopping in today! If you're in the Ontario, Canada area, stop by and see us in person at the Scrapbook Expo this weekend!

If You've Got It...

...HAUNT it! That's my (Lauren's) motto this Halloween season. Luckily I have Eyelet Outlet Ghost Brads and Bat Brads to turn the fun sentiment into a BOOOOO-tiful card like this:

I found this ancient bat patterned paper in my stash and the fun castle illustration in an old, falling apart childrens book I found at a garage sale. I added a sentiment made from alphabet stickers and my Dymo Labelmaker, a few skinny black mats and of course my Ghost and Bat Brads.

There are lots more awesome Eyelet Outlet Halloween Goodies in the online store, we promise it's all Treats and no Tricks! ♥

Kick Up Your Heels for Halloween!

I made Halloween treats for the kiddos in my life this week and it was so much fun!

The shoe is from Cricut's Princess Party image set and I cut it as large as would fit on a 12 x 12 piece of card stock and this allowed for the width of the Oreo cookies.  It was quite easy to assemble, too.

The fun part was creating the embellishment for the front of the shoe and the tags I tied to the cookie bags.  Eyelet Outlet has AMAZING brads for Halloween and they added such super touch to my shoes!

Here I've added an Eyelet Outlet Mini Spider Brad to the cobweb on the front.

Our little Ghost Brads are so adorable!

My granddaughter is not a fan of chocolate so she's getting socks in her shoe!  

Our Witch Leg Brads really kept with my theme! I also added a little purple stick on bling bubbling from my cauldron!  

Our Pumpkin Brads are always popular!  Here I've added some Eyelet Outlet green swirl bling.

Thanks for stopping by today!
