EGGcellent Easter!

The high cost of eggs has recently been a topic in the news, but rest assured, Eyelet Outlet's eggs are still just $3.29 a dozen!  We have beautiful spring  Easter Eggs, like I've used today on this card, as well as white and brown eggs.

And while you're shopping our Easter products, don't forget to put some sweet rabbit brads in your cart!  I love the way this little guy looks nestled against this Easter basket.  I've also used some Eyelet Outlet grass washi tape and I embossed the sky with a cloud embossing folder.  

We'd love to see how you've used Eyelet Outlet products on your Easter projects!  Come share at Eyelet Outlet Fans Facebook group!!

Easter Gift Tag Idea!

 Do you create Easter gift baskets or treat bags for family and friends for Easter? I have a cute tag idea for you to easily add to your basket or treat bag!

I started with stamping and coloring in my bunny "Happy Easter" image. After coloring with markers, I added ladybugs and bumble bee brads to my image. I then embellished the corners by layering yellow and white paper flowers and colored brads from the summer mix collection! So fun and easy to assemble! You can easily create several at a time for Easter baskets and treat bags! I hope you enjoy!

An Egg for You


This is a delightful spring image from Power Poppies.
I colored it with Copic Markers and then die cut the image
and framed it in a scalloped die cut.

The image was then decorated with lots of fun embellishments
from Eyelet Outlet. I included small pink enamel dots and the larger 
12 mm clear bling jewels to accentuate the die cuts.

The top and bottom borders of the card also received a bit
 of sparkle with my favorite washi tape in Silver Glitter.
I am so looking forward to spring and I love all the eggs, bunnies
and pastel colors so you will be seeing more of spring from
me in the coming weeks.

Shopping List for Eyelet Outlet:
12 mm Clear Bling Jewels
 Pink Enamel Dots
Glitter Washi Tape in Silver

Hogs and Kisses!

 It's a farm fresh day here on the blog. I grew up on farm that didn't look a lot different from this one. I enjoy getting back to my roots by evoking farm life once in a while. Fortunately that's really easy to do with the large selection of farm animal brads that EO carries. 

Here I used a variety of animals and birds. There are many other options available such as Horse & Pony, Cow & Goat, Chick Brads and more. There are also Tractor Brads. There's definitely everything you need to create farm scenes like mine. In fact, there is so much available in the EO store when it comes to animals that Noah himself would be proud! Check out all their animal brads for your card making.

Easter Card

Today I have an Easter card for you that I designed in Cricut Design Space.  I found a cross image that was similar in shape to the Eyelet Outlet cross brad and used it to create a shadow layer behind my cross brad.  

Eyelet Outlet has several different floral brads and it was hard to decide which ones to use here, but settled on the pink daisy brads and a few mini stitched flowers. I embossed the navy layer of the card with a floral embossing folder for a little more texture.  

Be sure to check out all the great spring and Easter products we have at Eyelet Outlet.  We've got rabbits, chicks, Easter eggs, and more!

Book Page Bunny Banner!

I love having handmade Easter decor around our home! Here is a fun bunny banner made with book pages for you to try!

  I started with tracing a bunny image on a book page and cutting out 3 bunnies. I then embellished my bunnies with various Eyelet Outlet products. For the eyes I used the 12mm jewel bling in blue, green, and pink. I added the heart for a nose from the Heart enamel sticker collection. I added a strip of light glitter washi at the neck line and decorated with a variation of pearl strips and green bling strip. I added the layered paper flowers for their bunny tail and embellished with a colored brad. The variations and possibilities are endless! I hope this inspires you to create a Easter Bunny Banner for your home or office today!

Sunny Hello


So happy to use these glorious sunflowers from Eyelet Outlet.
I love the wide sunflower washi tape. I had to make
a quick thank you to someone and just picked out a
smaller card and used the washi tape across it. 
Came out so pretty and so simple for a quick card. 
On this card it added a wonderful border

I colored in my image which already included sunflowers 
so it was easy to embellish with the great sunflower brads.
I needed something other than yellow so did the
die cut in the background in blue. At then end
 I added small black gems to the flowers on the image.

Lookin' Sharp!

 I've got a fun little card idea for you today, perfect for a birthday. I used a cactus image from Cricut Design Space and embellished it with a pair of Eyelet Outlet Sunglasses and some Mini Stitched Flowers.  I think this cactus is, indeed, looking quite sharp!

For the sentiment, I used a few strips of Eyelet Outlet Skinny Washi Tape. We have hundreds of beautiful tapes, my I honestly think this skinny tape in the assorted colors are the ones I reach for most often.  I also added one of our new cactus brads next to the sentiment.  There's two different styles of cacti in the package and I think these will quickly become a best seller!

Thanks for stopping by. If you're in the DFW area this weekend, come by and take a look at all the awesome Eyelet Outlet products in person at the vendor area of the Scrapbook Expo in Irving, TX.

Here Come Peter Cottontail...

 Hopping down the bunny trail!

Easter is such a fun time to create special cards and notes to slip into Easter baskets! I loved playing with the rabbit brads in chocolate and pastel! For Peter, I added little "brass buttons" for his coat using the champagne swirl bling jewels. And of course my new favorite green grass washi was perfect! Lastly, I used the light purple glitter washi for my border. 

I hope this inspires you to create some fun Easter cards for your friends and family! Thanks so much for stopping by! Don't forget to shop at Eyelet Outlet for your crafting needs!

Loving Spring Flowers


Finally time to look forward to spring flowers and a more
colorful landscape. This card features an image from Colors of Love
and a die cut from Spellbinders.

Next I watercolored the image and started adding the flower brads
from Eyelet Outlet. I included a small jewel bling or small enamel dot
on each flower's center. Since this is a spring-inspired card I added
the fabulous dragonfly brads fluttering around. 
To finish off the card I added the blue washi tape (glitter) and 
a few more of the pink jewel bling.

The white flowers and the round purple brads are
also from Eyelet Outlet and are listed even though they
are not part of the actual card.

You Are Fairy Sweet!

 Fairies are featured in my card for you today. EO's Fairy Brads come in several colors and the green and pink colorway fit perfectly with my card. Butterfly Washi Tape provides a nice border for the sentiment to rest on. Grass Washi Tape is extra wide so one row provides a great foundation for all kind of outdoor scenes.

Take a look in your stash for ready made items like my sentiment and fairy house. Combine them with EO products to create a perfect card for just about every theme you can think of!

A Flamingo Celebration!

Happy Friday, Eyelet Outlet Fans!  I am here today to share a fun, shaker card that I created. 

Are you a fan of flamingos?  When I go to the zoo, I love to watch them as they interact with each other.  They always look so majestic to me as they stand on one leg. 

I colored up this cute flamingo with Copic Markers, cut it out and set it aside before creating my shaker element.  I die-cut several squares from card stock and acetate, adhered them all together and set it aside to dry completely. 
I die-cut the cover panel and adhered a strip of the beautiful flamingo washi as a border across the top.  I thought it would be the perfect backdrop for my sentiment. 
I filled the shaker element with flamingo sequins and adhered it to the front of the card.  I added the flamingo to the top of the shaker, and I added a loopy silver bow that I completed with a flamingo brad.

I think this turned out so fun and will be perfect to send to someone celebrating a special occasion!

I hope you are inspired to get crafty!

Old Irish Blessing

With St. Patrick's Day around the corner, my mind turned to leprechauns and thought our little gnome brad must certainly be a close cousin.  There's two styles wearing four different colored clothes in each package, but of course, for this card, I chose the one in green.  

Beneath the sentiment I added one of our pretty little rainbow brads and I also used the cloud brad from cloud and sun set in my little scene.  I used some of our jewel strips for the "gold" in the pot and a strip of skinny green washi tape across the bottom of the scene.  

Wishing you a wonderfully lucky day!

KOALA-tee Reading Time

 Here is my (Lauren's) ideal day off scenario, in card form: I'm reading, surrounded by books, with a friend or two for company! In this case the books are Eyelet Outlet Book Brads and Book Tape, the friends are a Koala Brad and a Mini Ladybug, there's a Telephone Brad in case I feel like chatting, and some Rose Brads for extra color and inspiration. I've also used Wood Washi to construct the bookshelves and Text Tape as a background.

What does YOUR ideal day off look like? Because whatever it is, I bet Eyelet Outlet has brad and tape styles that would help you recreate it in card form!

is almost always thinking about what to read next!

Best Wishes Always!

 Do you have an upcoming Bridal Shower or Wedding to attend?

I love the vintage and romantic feel of this card! I started with adding a little distress inks to the background of my cream cardstock. I added the beautiful "time for flowers" washi tape for my border. Next, I stamped my sentiment and added some champagne bling. I created my layered flower by stacking the large paper flower with the small paper flower in white and adding a little distress ink and the gold rimmed copper brad. Lastly, I embellished with Swirl Bling Jewel in Champagne!

Life in Bloom


I love roses and the new brads from the Eyelet Outlet are
fabulous. I also love that the brads come in a packet of various
 red and pink colors. This always gives you options for your projects.

For this card I used a mostly pink/purple color palette including enamel
dots and pink glitter washi. The glitter washi from Eyelet Outlet is the
best since the glitter never rubs off and is so sparkly. For some
added bling I also used some pink jewels. Check out the shopping
list below for all your needs at Eyelet Outlet.

Dreaming of Sand and Surf!

Happy Friday, Eyelet Outlet fans!  I don't know about you, but I am so over winter and I am dreaming of warm beachy days!  I hope they come soon! 

When I saw the new Cruise Ship Brads, I knew that I had the perfect stamp set to pair them with!  I created a fun pop up shadow-box card with a beachy theme!

I created the background by tearing some digital papers that represent the sand, water and sky.  I adhered the images to acetate and added them in various places to add depth to the card. 
Lastly, I created a bow and added the sun brad to the center of it and added the life preserver brad to the sentiment strip.  The card stands on its own and is the cutest little 3-D scene.

I hope you are inspired to get crafty!

Life Saver

Eyelet Outlet's latest brad release includes a cruise ship/ring buoy set that's pretty cool!  Today I've got a nautical themed thank you card for you using the ring buoy from the set.  

I added some cloud embossing to the sky and to that I added a sun brad and a couple of seagull brads

Hi (and Hi Again!)

I (Lauren) am still slightly obsessed with Eyelet Outlet's huge selection of Pearl and Jewel Brads, which come in pretty much every size, color and style you can imagine. This week I've used them on two all-occasion cards that also feature EO Flower Petal and Multicolor Dot Washi Tapes:

I built the first of these cards on top of a polka-dot transparency, so that the blooms I backed with cardstock and cut out of the Flower Petal Tape would appear to drift down the card, held on only by a variety of Pearl and Jewel Brads, ranging from tiny 5mm size to substantial 12mm. There are two strips of Multicolor Dot Tape wrapped around the front of the card and a small strip of cardstock inside, to hold a greeting and signature.

For the second card, I used one of my favorite diecutting tricks, which is to keep an entire set of alphabet dies intact, and use the negative space, after the letters are cut out, to use as a background. When the letters H and I happen to be next to each other, this makes an instant greeting! This time I used only 5mm Purple Pearl Brads (they come in five other shades!) with silver bezels to attach the Flower Petals.

Remember that ALL Eyelet Outlet Pearl and Jewel Brads are currently on sale; so I'm pretty sure you'll want to collect an assortment of styles, too!

is already thinking about a few more ways to use Pearl and Jewel Brads!
