Santa Claus Is Coming To Town!!
Christmas planning, crafting, and preparing is in full swing! I just love this image of Santa gazing up at the sparkling, decked out tree...
I love using Kraft cardstock for my card bases and started with adding a Christmas sentiment in brown and distressing the edges! Then I used my Christmas tree image with Santa and colored in with markers! I embellished with Swirl Bling Jewel in Champagne, and Jewel Bling Strips in green and clear. My tree topper was a Stippled Jewel Edge Brad in Clear. I also added a little fuzzy, white, fun flocking to Santa's white fur trimming!

This is a fun reindeer I constructed with a die cut from Spellbinders.
I added a bit of distress ink around the edges of the head then some
fun embellishments from Eyelet Outlet.
I used plaid papers to add to the rustic feel then added a "Merry
Christmas" washi tape to each side of the card. Of course I needed to pretty
up the reindeer and I added a poinsettia brad to her ear. The square gems next
to the Merry Christmas sentiment fit in perfect. Finally I added a black pearl
on her nose and she is ready for Santa's sleigh.

Happy Turkey Day!
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in the US, so this seems like the perfect time for a card that sums up the holiday, in Eyelet Outlet Brad style. Chunky diecut letters make a nice home for a combination of Pumpkin Brads, a handsome Scarecrow, a Rake, lots of Mini Leaves, and Fall Stitched Flowers with their Mini Stitched Flower friends.
Wishing the happiest of holidays to all those who are celebrating! Meanwhile, should you need a little retail therapy over this wonderful weekend for shopping, the Eyelet Outlet Online Store is open 24/7!

Santa down the Chimney
This is a Santa card as he is going down the chimney with some
gifts. I hope he has some cookies and milk waiting for him.
I had a fireplace die from Spellbinders and that started the inspiration
for this fun holiday card.
The Santa was added with brads from Eyelet Outlet of the Santa suit and the
also brads of Santa's boots. I love the poinsettia brads accenting the greenery
on the mantle on the fireplace. Finally, in the top corners are small
black enamel dots also from Eyelet Outlet.
Have fun creating and here is your Eyelet Outlet Shipping List:

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree!
Hi everyone. Today I'm celebrating this card for being published in the Winter Edition of Creative Scrapbook Magazine. I'm super excited to feature Eyelet Outlet Products and is a fun one!
Not all Christmas' have snow. This tropical Christmas card has me thinking of warm breezes and sand between my toes.
I was inspired to do this card by the Corona beer commercial where it's a dark night and you hear a guy whistling Oh Christmas Tree. Then suddenly a single lighted palm tree brightens the picture. I love that commercial and the beer isn't too bad either! LOL!
The inside sentiment continues the "warm" vibe. I colored this with Wink of Stella Fine Glitter Pens.
After doing many traditional Christmas cards, this one was a breath of fresh air. I hope it took you on a quick magical trip to the tropics too!

Pine & Dandy
When I saw this beautiful digital paper set called "Woodland Forest Friends" from CreativeBu on Etsy, I knew it would pair so perfectly with Eyelet Outlet's pinecone brads.

Here Comes Santa Claus!
The Christmas countdown is on! Handmade Christmas Cards are such a treat to create and give to family and friends! Here is a fun idea to try!
I started with a Christmas plaid cardstock as my base and layered with Christmas patterned paper. I stamped a Christmas tree in green and added the swirl bling jewels in champagne for lights! Adding Christmas gift brads was a must! For the sentiment banner, I added glitter black washi tape and fancy long pearls and jewels bling! Thanks so much for stopping by! Don't forget to shop at Eyelet Outlet for your crafting needs!

These are some fun ornaments to make using white porcelain
ornaments and alcohol inks. All the pretty sparkle is courtesy of
Eyelet Outlet and their wonderful jewel bling.
The white porcelain ornaments can often be found at craft stores
or ordered from on-line. I used various colors of alcohol inks including the
metallic colors. I made my own bows then added single jewels in clear
and the XL Snowflake Bling.
They are easy to make and I often use them as hostess gifts too.
They have lots of sparkle so give them a try.

Traditional or Non-Traditional Holidays?
Are you a fan of traditional holiday cards, or do you prefer non-traditional themes? I absolutely love traditional holiday cards and decorations!
When I saw the Cardinal (and Female Cardinal) Brads, I knew that I wanted to pair them with some beautiful greenery and cones. I thought that they would be the perfect embellishment to dress up my card.
I roughed up the edges of my printed paper with a distressing tool, layered it on red cardstock and adhered it to my card base. I arranged the winter foilage around my circles and then tucked the sentiment tag under the foilage. I added the Cardinal Brads and then finished up with a metallic red bow and Red Glitter Enamel Dots.
I really love the traditional look of this card! I hope you do too.
Thanks so much for spending a few minutes with me!

Good Thursday to you, crafters! I created this paper rosette angel a few years ago with my Cricut, but I've updated her a bit and also created a sharable file with instructions if you're a Cricut crafter and would like to give this project a try. I've also seen several YoutTube videos with instructions for making Paper Angel Rosettes with paper trimmer, score board, and punches.
