How fun are these safari jungle animal brads?
I had a "roaring" good time creating this birthday card for any young at heart friend! After using my "fun pass" ticket stamp to place my happy birthday greeting, I then layered on fun jungle patterned paper! I embellished with glitter black washi tape, black enamel dots, and jungle mix brads!
This was a fun card to create and here's a few items you will need!

This is a fun Halloween card using traditional Halloween colors.
I die cut the background and also the scalloped circle. I stamped the
cat and added Distress Inks for a spooky night effect.
The really fun part came when I added some of the fabulous
Halloween embellishments from Eyelet Outlet. For the scalloped circle
I added enamel dots and clear jewels from the Eyelet Outlet.
The bats are brads from Eyelet Outlet as well as
the black pearl strip around the card.

For my card, I used stamps from the Spellbinders Stamp of the Month for September. I stamped the large gnome and the fall banner on a stitched white rectangle piece and colored them with Copic markers. I used some very light blue markers to create a sky effect and drew the stalk and a leaf for the Sunflower Brad and the Mini Leaf Brad. At the base of the sunflower, I added a Pumpkin Brad. I used three of the four gnomes in the Gnome Brad Set as shown. I also added a bit of grass and then mounted the finished piece on to a dark orange die background. Bright orange cardstock was used behind the main piece and that was then mounted on a dark brown A2 card base.

Hello crafty friends! Are you a coffee drinker? I think I shared before that I am! It is all about the coffee in my house! Even if you aren't a fan of coffee, I have a project that is perfect for the coffee (or cocoa, or cider, or tea) lover in your life!

I'm making some more magic for you this week with the new Eyelet Outlet gnome brads. Today I've paired my little gnome with one of our cute snowman brads in front of his little gnome home that I found on Cricut Design Space.
I altered the gnome home a bit by adding a gingham digital paper to the roof as well as a snow cap on the center roof. The sentiment is set off with a snowflake brad and there's a holly brad over the door.
Thanks for stopping by today and we'd love to see how you are using Eyelet Outlet products in your projects! Please share at Eyelet Outlet Fans Facebook Group!

The new Eyelet Outlet Caroler Brads are the about cutest thing ever! Here they are singing a happy holiday song in their very own snowglobe. I stamped some little houses to make a backdrop for them, added a strip of Sparkle White Glitter Tape for the ground, Snowflake Brads to the sky, and diecut the snowglobe base from Wood Washi with an accent of Brick Tape.

It is getting close to holidays like Halloween. Unfortunately I no longer
get trick or treaters. No even one. Previously our Bichon was excited about
Halloween and always ran to the door to greet the kids.
At least I can get into the spirit by making a card. I started by stamping
first on plain white paper and then on patterned paper. I fussy
cut the outfit and hat and then glued them on the image.
Copics were used to fill in the hair and face.
I also used clear jewels from the Eyelet Outlet to sparkle up the
bottom of her dress and hat. I framed the image and added
orange paper and patterned paper. I attached a sign that said "I Want Candy"
and added green square jewels. Finally I added a decorated jewel
and pearl strip to the top and bottom of the card.

Hey everybody! I hope last week was a good one and you're enjoying your weekend! Leslie here, back as a guest designer (filling in for Janet), sharing a mini slimline get well card using our Sunflower Washi Tape, Sunflower Brads, and brown Sequins. Sunflowers are my favorite of all flowers, and I can't resist the urge to create cards with them!
I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from heavyweight white cardstock along with four die cut frames which I adhered together. I cut a layering panel from lighter weight white cardstock and covered it with Sunflower Washi Tape. I added a die cut sentiment along with a Sunflower Brad and several brown sequins which completed the card front.
I cut the inside panel from white cardstock along with layering panels from yellow and brown cardstock which I adhered together. I embellished the white cardstock panel with a strip of the Sunflower Washi Tape which I trimmed along the flower line, and then stamped the sentiment in brown ink.

Hi friends! Are you a TEAM HEATWAVE or TEAM SWEATER WEATHER? While I love summer, I have to admit that I love autumn! I am so excited for the weather to turn cool enough that I can pull out my sweaters and shawls.

I first learned about wiper cards from the Eyelet Outlet Design Team Lead, Janet and I was hooked. They are actually pretty easy to make and have a little mechanism that pops up when the card is opened.
Today I've got one to share with you that features a number of magical Eyelet Outlet products.

I (Lauren) come from a family that loves puns, and luckily that skill is appreciated in my role as an Eyelet Outlet Design Team Member. When I saw the adorable (g)new Gnome 2 Brads and Mushroom Washi Tape I couldn't wait to use them together with a suitably punny sentiment!

Today I am using some of the fabulous paper flowers from the Eyelet Outlet
as the highlight of this card. The flower packets come in a single color
but I love the fact that each packet includes multiple sizes so
you can layer them. You can also add a little colored ink
to them with a sponge which makes them very versatile. I put a little
bit of yellow ink on my white flowers. I attached the flower layers
with a stippled jewel brad before I added them to the card.
in the turquoise and champagne colors.
Paper Flowers Solid Colors
5mm Jewel Strips (Turquoise and Champagne)
12mm Stippled Jewel Brads with Gold Edge (Blue)
See you then.

Hey everybody! Here's wishing you a wonderful week ahead! Leslie here, back as a guest designer (filling in for Janet), sharing a mini slimline retirement card using our Village by the Sea Washi Tape, Wide Wood Washi Tape, Wide Sky Washi Tape and Sun & Cloud Brads! I love creating little scenes on my cards and it was fun watching this one come to life! I cut a 3-1/2" x 6" mini slimline card base from heavyweight white cardstock along with a layering panel from a lighter weight white cardstock which I covered with Wide Sky Washi Tape and Village by the Sea Washi Tape (trimmed along the tops of the buildings). I added a plank created from a narrow strip of white cardstock covered with Wide Wood Washi Tape along with Sun and Cloud Brads, and then stamped the sentiment and some birds in StazOn Jet Black ink.
I cut the inside panel from white cardstock and embellished it with a strip of kraft cardstock, and then stamped the sentiment in light brown ink.

Hello Eyelet Outlet Crafters! Did you know that in United States the custom of kids trick or treating didn't start until the 1930's and 40's? Kids were given homemade treats, such as popcorn balls, cookies, cake. Halloween candy became commercialized in the 1970's and just this last October in 2021, the candy sales reached the highest ever at 10 billion dollars! I decided to go old school this year and I am going to make homemade treats for my neighbors. Today I am sharing with you one of the several Popcorn treat boxes that I made using Doodle bug papers Fright Night collection. This fun popcorn box cut-file was easy to cut out on my Cricut and fast to assemble with a little folding, scoring and some glue. The best part of making crafts is decorating in my opinion. I used some of EO's Yellow Enamel dots and Multi- Size Orange Pearl Bling. I also removed some of the purple pearl flat backs of the Purple Pearl Strips and glued them on to my popcorn box. I also created a little card/tag and added one of EO's 1/16" Tiny white eyelets to not only strengthen the tag but it added that extra special touch to make this popcorn box spooky cute. Lastly, I embellished the box with a cute Doodle bug skull sticker and glued on some kooky little googly eyes.
1/16" Tiny White Eyelets
Enamel Dots Single colors yellow
Pearl Bling Strips- 500/sheet purple
Pearl Bling- Multi Size- 100 count Purple

Hi crafty friends! Have you ever needed a snarky card to send to a cat-loving friend?
When I saw the Kitten Stamps, I knew that I needed to create a card for my dad, and the stamp paired perfectly with the Kitten Brads!

I've been designing for Eyelet Outlet for some time now, but I cannot remember a new release that I've been this excited about! All four brad sets are simply amazing and I know you're going to love them as much as I do. See them all here!
