There are three "flavors" in each packet: strawberry and chocolate, vanilla and chocolate, plus strawberry and vanilla. But I found it much too hard to choose, and since they're totally free of sugar, fat and calories, I adorned my oversized sentiment with one of each. I scattered a few white Heart Brads around as well and matted my panel on some Glitter Pink Design Tape.
Whether you are (like me!) a total Sweet Tooth, or prefer something a bit more savory, there are Eyelet Outlet Food Brads for literally EVERY taste!

strawberry ice cream irl,
but it's her favorite flavor to design
with since it's PINK!

I apologize to any Alabama fans who may have been attracted to this post because of the Roll Tide title but hopefully you'll forgive me!
This card features one of the awesome crabs from the Crab and Lobster brad set. I've had a lot of fun creating cards using these little fellas and this once is no exception!
I found this scene as a print then cut on Cricut Design Space. I added the joke sentiment and transformed the altered scene to a new print then cut design. After this was printed and cut, I added the seagulls and the crab. The motion line for the crab was inked using a fine line black pen after it was printed.
I hope you enjoyed this little jokester of a card. Don't forget to stop by the store and pick up your own Crab and Lobster set for you card making fun!

Hello, Eyelet Outlet fans! I hope you've had a great week! Leslie here sharing a fun clean and simple note card with a beachy feel! I absolutely love note cards because they can be used for a variety of occasions and there's plenty of room on the blank inside panel to write a custom message.
This 'just because' design is super simple and can easily be mass-produced to create a set to give as a gift. I cut a landscape top-folding A-2 card base from kraft cardstock and splattered some white ink with a fan brush over the front. I created the sentiment on the computer and cut it in a strip, then layered it on orange cardstock embellished with brown Glitter Skinny Washi Tape. I added several Crab & Lobster Brads to the left of the sentiment and affixed the strip to the card base. Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!

Have you heard the scoop? Eyelet Outlet has just released ice cream cone brads and today I've got a couple of cards featuring them!
First up is a card that has all three flavor combinations. The ice cream paper I used is a from a digital paper set from Erin Bradley's Etsy Shop and I've also used our pink bow glitter washi tape and pink check skinny washi tape. Some pink pearl stick on gems accent the scalloped circle.

Do you have someone you would like to celebrate with a little humor? If so, this card idea might be for you!
I like puns and this one made me smile. It features the Crab and Lobster brad set. I heat embossed the star with purple glitter heat embossing powder before cutting it and then arranged my two lobsters on it. The sentiment was created on Cricut Design Space as a print then cut.
As an accent to the wave cardstock border, I used two washi tapes. These are the Thin Glitter Tape and the Striped Tape. The Thin Glitter Tape is one I really recommend as it comes with 5 different colors. A thin strip of glitter is a great accent on many cards when you just need a little bit of something.

For the front and back of the purse base, I covered the cardstock with Funky Birds Washi Tape and die cut the pieces. I cut the remaining purse pieces from tweed cardstock and the rings from gold foil cardstock, and then assembled the purse handles. I assembled the purse base and added White Pearl Bling Strips across the washi tape seams on the front and back, then attached the handles and the other purse pieces. I attached the three Paper Flower layers with an Amber 6mm Jewel Brad w/Gold Edge and affixed the flower to the front of the purse.
Thanks so much for stopping by - we'll see you next time!

Every once in a while a card comes together totally different than what was planned. Today's card did just that! This card entitled "I Miss You" is a fall card showing the changing season and captures the loss we experienced this year...loss of family and friends as well as loss of our 'normal' life as we knew it!
The beautiful Eyelet Outlet Leave Brads are falling to the ground while the serene Eyelet Outlet Bird Set Brad looks on. Take some time today to go over to the Eyelet Outlet site to gather up some brads, bling, and washi to make your fall cards!

Halloween will be here before you know it, so I've started on treat boxes for the kiddos in my life!
First up is an adorable Frankenstein treat dispenser. This file is from My Scrap Chick and comes in SVG as well as PDF formats, so you don't need to own a die cut machine to make this one.
As soon as I saw this file I knew I'd have to embellish it with Eyelet Outlet Screw brads!

Have you seen the new Crab & Lobster brad set? They are awesome and a lot of fun!
My little lobster and crab have found themselves in some hot water today. This is a very CAS (clean and simple) card. I found the pot image on Cricut Design Space. I cut it out of vinyl and applied it to my white card. I added some small lines around the fire and on the pot with a fine line pen. I made my sentiment from scratch on Design Space as well and put it in a speech bubble before printing and cutting it. The sky is three strips of the Sky Washi Tape. This tape is back ordered but I've linked another one that would work just as well. Finally, what's a beachy kind of card without a Seagull?
Thanks for stopping by and do check out the Eyelet Outlet site for all your embellishment needs. Remember! We have something for everyone!

I created one coin and two cards. An artist trading coin is a 2-1/2" circle (I use a punch) and an artist trading card is 3-1/2" x 2-1/2". My standard practice is to always punch two circles or cut two rectangles so that I can decorate one and adhere another one behind it for stability.
To create the 'Joy' coin, I placed a strip of Glitter Tall Tree Washi Tape horizontally across the coin base and added three Penguin Brads and the sentiment die cut from silver foil cardstock. Then I adhered a second punched circle behind it.
To create the 'peace' card, I covered the card base with Wood Washi Tape and then die cut the sentiment into the covered card base, saving the negative space pieces to add back in later. I added three Prancing Deer Brads and just prior to adhering the second rectangle behind it, I added two small strips of Glitter Brown Washi Tape to the extra card so the sparkle would show through the die cut sentiment. Once I adhered the second rectangle, I glued in the negative space pieces to the p, e, a and the second e.
To create the 'merry' card, I covered the card base with Glitter Gold Dots Washi Tape and added the sentiment die cut from red cardstock along with a thin red cardstock strip across the bottom. I adhered the stamped word Christmas and then added one Cardinal Brad and two Cardinal Profile Brads. Then I adhered a second rectangle behind it.
