We're The Perfect Blend - Iced Coffee Brads

Hello EO fans! It's Janet and today I'm here showing off the new Iced Coffee Brads. When I saw that there are strawberry and chocolate coffees in this set, I thought of the sentiment I used on this card. It's sweet but not too sappy and could be given to a best friend or a significant other. 

Around the edges of this A2 card base, I applied Skinny Brown Glitter tape. It's one of the rolls in the 3145A set. On top of that I placed a striped paper panel with flags, a square and a scalloped circle. I used tea stained paper for the circle and stamped the sentiment at the top and added the Iced Coffee Brads below. 

The finishing touches included a bean from the Coffee Brad Set and two Heart Shaped Enamels. This is so sweet, I can just about taste those drinks!


Thanks so much for stopping by for a little Joe today! 

Happy Creating Everyone!

Fun Thank You A Latte Card!

Hello, Eyelet Outlet fans! I hope you've had a great week! Leslie here, sharing a thank you card with you today! Who doesn't love latte?! I do, I do! I'm not a huge coffee drinker (hubs and I each have two cups every morning) but I do love iced coffee and latte, and indulge myself in a mocha latte whenever I'm near a Starbucks! Our new Iced Coffee Brads hit the store earlier this month and I paired them with our Brown Enamel Dots to create this fun thank you card.

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base and layering strip from brown cardstock along with a floral patterned paper layer which I adhered to the card base. I cut a slightly smaller layering strip from white cardstock and adhered it to the brown strip in a wonky off-set fashion. I printed the Latte sentiment on white cardstock and cut it in a wonky fashion as well with a stitched square die. I also cut a slightly larger square die cut from the brown cardstock and adhered them together. I affixed two Iced Coffee Brads to the left side of the strip panel and adhered it to the card base. I added the layered square die cuts and several Brown Enamel Dots to complete the card front. 

I cut the inside panel and a narrow embellishing strip from the brown cardstock along with a white cardstock panel cut with a stitched rectangle die. I adhered them together and added the narrow brown cardstock embellishing strip. I stamped a large sentiment in brown ink and adhered the panel to the inside of the card base. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!

Christmas Ornaments

I've been getting ready for Christmas lately and having so much fun creating felt ornaments for my tree and incorporating Eyelet Outlet products in the designs.  

I ironed Wonder Under fusible webbing to the felt, peeled off the paper backing and then cut the pieces with my Cricut Maker and rotary blade.  I assembled the pieces and pressed with a damp pressing cloth to adhere them and then added the different Eyelet Outlet brads and sequins to the ornaments before hand stitching the rounds together, tucking a bit of batting inside before taking the final stitches.

Making SPIRITS Bright

Halloween is this Sunday, but there's still time to make a happily haunted card featuring Eyelet Outlet Ghost Brads!

I blended Oxide inks to make a suitably mysterious background (Chipped Sapphire, Prize Ribbon and Wilted Violet for the sky; Rustic Wilderness and Forest Moss for the ground; a little bit of Black Soot around the entire perimeter) then stamped the tree and added said Ghosties as well as a Pumpkin Brad, a Witch Hat and a Mini Spider just to set the scene. Wishing you a safe and spooky Halloween!

favorite Halloween candies 
are Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!

Warm Winter Wishes Slimline


It's Janet here for Eyelet Outlet. EO has so many perfect brads and washi for holiday cardmaking. It's literally hard to figure out what you want to use! 

Today I have a holiday slimline card featuring the new Female Cardinal Brad. It pairs so perfectly with the Cardinal Profile and Cardinal Brad sets that have been carried a while in the store. The Holly Brads are also so versatile and can be used on any holiday card. I used one here as part of the cluster that the cardinals are perched on. I also used Snowflake Brads in the background. 

It's also easy to bling up your cards using EO washi and bling. Here I used Glitter Silver Washi and Sparkle Red Glitter washi for the mat and for the border going through the card. Just apply the tape to cardstock and cut with your favorite die or electronic cutter. So easy and you waste hardly anything!

As a finishing touch, I added some White Pearl Bling and Green Jewel Bling to the middle of the snowflakes. So pretty!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you visit the store and get your holiday card making started. 

Happy Creating Everyone!

Sweet Friendship Card!

Hello, Eyelet Outlet fans! I hope you've had a great week! Leslie here, sharing a fun friendship card featuring our new Cupcake Swirl Brads that hit the store week before last! I paired the brads with our White Enamel Dots on the front and used a little bit of Valentine Washi Tape on the inside. This clean and simple design would be easy to mass produce for your card stash and can be used for a variety of occasions!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base and layering strip from white cardstock along with a pink patterned paper layering panel and strip. I rounded the bottom right corner of the card base and layering panel, and adhered the panels to the card base. I adhered the strips together, added three Cupcake Swirl Brads toward the top, and adhered the strip vertically to the card base. The final step was adding a die cut digital sentiment embellished with White Enamel Dots to complete the front of the card. 

I cut a short panel for the inside from white cardstock and embellished it with strips of Valentine Washi Tape. I stamped a sentiment in pink ink and layered the panel on a piece of the pink patterned paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!

Fun With Felt

I've been having quite a lot of fun with felt lately and have found new ways to incorporate Eyelet Outlet brads into my felt projects.  A few weeks ago and shared my a fall themed banner and today I've got some Christmas ornaments to show you.

I iron fusible webbing to the back of the felt that I use in the designs.  I peel off the backing and then cut the shapes with my Cricut Maker and rotary blade.  Once I have them layered like I want them on one of the round pieces of felt,  I cover the design with a damp pressing cloth and iron.  The fusible webbing adheres everything together perfectly.  Then I embellish the ornaments with Eyelet Outlet brads and sequins and blanket stitch the rounds together adding a little bit of batting before taking the last few stitches.

Eyelet Outlet sequins are amazing for this project and they are available in lots of shapes and colors.  I stitched round ones on the Christmas tree and wreath and the pretty star shaped ones surround the angel.  

I used a round jeweled brad in the center of my snowflake.  There's dozens to choose from at Eyelet Outlet.

In addition to the multi-colored round sequins, I added a gold star brad to the top of the tree and a few of our brand new gift brads underneath.

I have several more ornament designs on the drawing board, so check back in and see how I'll be using even more Eyelet Outlet products on them!

Under the Tree

The new Eyelet Outlet Gift Brads are fairly awesome on their own, but of course the best place for them is under a Christmas Tree, right? So that's where I (Lauren) have put them.

In this case the tree --decorated with Green Pearl Bling and a Glitter Enamel Star-- is stamped and the room is composed of five different EO Washi varieties: Gold Script TapeHeart WashiWood TapeStar Gold Tape and Christmas Pattern Washi, to be precise. But maybe my favorite thing is the art on the wall: a Nutcracker Brad, matted on a little scrap of Wood Tape, diecut into a frame shape. 

is already thinking about 
Christmas decorations!

Christmas Gnome Cutie - New Gift Brads

Hello! It's Janet here with a cut little gnome for Christmas. He's making Gift Brads deliveries today since we all know it's going to be impossible to order gifts after October this year! Ha ha!

This card features the Glitter Winter Washi Tape as the background. A Holly Brad decorates the sentiment. A cute little green Heart Pastel Shaped Enamel Dot decorates his hat. The gnome and his cart is printable art I purchased from Pink Gem Designs. I fussy cut him before applying with foam tape.

In case you didn't notice, four new brad sets were issued this week. In addition to Gift Brads, we added Female Cardinal Brads, Cupcake Swirl Brads and Iced Coffee Brads. They are awesome additions to add to your stash and will help get your creativity going.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Let's make some Christmas memories!

Hello, Eyelet Outlet fans! I hope you've had a great week! Leslie here, sharing a card using some of the new brads that hit the store a few days ago. What's more fun than new brads?! These Gift Brads are super versatile and can be used for any occasion. I paired them with our Gold Skinny Washi Tape and Green Enamel Dots to create a simple Christmas card. This is another design that would be easy to mass-produce for all those on your Christmas card list!

I cut a standard size A2 top-folding card base and layering panel from white cardstock, along with layering panels from dark red cardstock and red dotted cardstock. I cut the white cardstock and red dotted cardstock layering panels at an angle, butted them together and applied a strip of Gold Skinny Washi Tape at the seam. I stamped the sentiment in red ink, added the Gift Brads, and adhered the panel to the dark red cardstock. The finishing touch on the front was the addition of several Green Enamel Dots

I cut the inside panel from white cardstock and embellished it with strips of the red dotted cardstock and gold washi tape, stamped the sentiment in red ink, and adhered the panel to dark red cardstock. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!

Hey Westcoasters!  Who is ready to get update and restock their craft rooms?
We are setting up shop in Hillsboro, OR...can't wait to see you this weekend.

What is on your must have list from Eyelet Outlet?

Frappe Birthday!

There's new brads at Eyelet Outlet and I've used two of them in this birthday card perfect for a coffee lover in my life!

I modified a candy shop from the Cricut image library with some other Cricut images to transform it into a coffee shop and paired the new cupcake brad with one of the new iced coffee brads to wish my coffee loving daughter a "Frappe Birthday!"  

See all the new brad releases at Eyelet Outlet and be sure to follow us all week as we debut them!

Cupcakes for Everyone!

New Brad Alert! We've got four new styles making their Eyelet Outlet debut today: Female Cardinals, Gift Boxes, Iced Coffee and... my (Lauren's) personal favorite... Swirl Cupcakes!

Three flavors of Swirl Cupcakes come in each package, so of course I had to make three slightly smaller than A2 cards. It also made sense to add in other birthday-themed and/or pink brads, such as a Birthday CandleLollipop Brad (they're on sale!) a FlamingoColored DaisyBirthday Sock Monkey (also on sale!) and a Heart Brad. A scattering of white Round Sequins, some torn patterned paper and a little machine stitching completes the design.

Stay tuned for more New Brad inspiration from the design team, right here on the Eyelet Outlet Blog.

Fairy Thanks


Eyelet Outlet brads make card making a breeze.
I need a pile of thank you, to make this fairy easy, keep the focus on the sentiment and Fairy Brads.  Clean open spaces and simple layouts are your friend when you are creating multiple copies of a card.  

Here I used a strip of patterned paper and Copper Foil Washi Tape along with Pink Bling strips for that pixie dust.

Remember, brads are released! 

Thanks for fluttering by today!

I die cut the 'jolly' word from red glitter sheet and adhered it to the stitched panel. I added a Santa Hat Brad and and two boots from the Santa Suit Brads, along with several Snowflake Brads, and then adhered the panel to the card base. 

I cut the inside panel from white cardstock and embellished it with a strip of red glitter sheet. I stamped the sentiment in black ink and cut it with a small stitched rectangle die. I added a Santa Suit Brad and layered the panel on red cardstock.

Halloween Treat Bags


Decorating these little Halloween treat bags was such fun!  There's so many amazing Halloween themed embellishments available at Eyelet Outlet, as you can see from this project. And there's even more at

This little witch is from Cricut's Mini Monster's image set, but I substituted Eyelet Outlet Witch Legs brads for the originals.  I also used Eyelet Outlet Eye brads on her face and a round jeweled brad on her dress.  The jeweled brads are on sale now, too!   There's a mini spider brad in that cob web as well as a cute black kitten brad in the corner.  

And don't forget about the washi tape!  I used some purple glitter tape on my witch's hat as well as a few strips of black and white and some Happy Halloween tape.  

Thanks for being with us today and be sure and check back next week and see our newest brads!
