Where do card ideas come from? EVERYWHERE! In this case, a friend sent me (Lauren) a funny meme that I realized would make a very fast and easy card featuring an Eyelet Outlet Flamingo Brad, a Sandcastle, Tall Palm and our Sun and Cloud Brads with an accent of Sequins and a mat of Pink and White Dot Tape:

Still trying to sneak in a few spring themes before the summer hits.
I loved this image from Hetty Clair of the jump roping bunnies.
It was colored with Copic Markers and the sky was done
with water color. I changed the daffodils in the image
to daisies with brads from Eyelet Outlet.
I also used some super cute rabbit brads from the store.
I added a small strip of gold glitter washi tape. Then I
punched the bottom of the frame and added some
jewel bling. All of these embellishments are also carried
at Eyelet Outlet.
Here is your Eyelet Outlet Shopping List
See you next Monday!

My name is Stacy Strate and I am a brand new Designer with Eyelet Outlet and beyond excited to share my creations with you! I thought my first project should be a stunner...so I present to you...The Shabby Chic Armoire.
I love all things shabby chic so creating this beauty was an absolute joy! I have a piece very similar to this in my own house so I used it as my inspiration. You should have seen me running back and forth from room to room making sure I captured all the right details. I got all my steps in - that's for sure!
I started with a template I purchased on Esty and was off to the races from there! I choose printed cardstock from Park Lane's Farmhouse Fresh collection and gave it a more antiqued look using Tim Holtz Distressed inks.
On the outside of the armoire, I used the 12MM Pearl Brads-Gold Edge in brown to create the door pulls. They worked out perfectly! For extra details, I added some Pearl Bling in brown, some Paper Flowers in white and hung the pink ballet slippers on a Hanger Brad. How cute is that!
Once you open the doors, you see a beautiful party dress adorned with a Large Heart Bling in white pearl hanging on another Hanger brad. Next to the party dress is our girl’s ballet outfit decorated with several Glitter Enamel Dots in white and of course hanging on the absolutely adorable Hanger brad.
The drawers do move in and out and the 12MM Pearl Brads-Gold Edge in brown drawer pulls match the door pulls on the front.
On one side of the armoire, is another adorable summertime outfit decorated with the Matte Finish Enamel Dots in pink and, of course, displayed with a Hanger Brad. The other side of the armoire is simply decorated with another 12MM Pearl Brads-Gold Edge in brown and more Pearl Bling in brown.
The completed Shabby Chic Armoire is 8" tall, 5" wide and 2.5" deep. I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed creating it and don’t forget to get all your card making, scrapbooking and paper crafting embellishments from Eyelet Outlet.

Father's Day is just around the corner and Eyelet Outlet has everything you need to create the perfect card for dad. Today's inspiration uses the hammer brads from our tool brad set. I used some nails and a carpenter silhouette from the Cricut image library and some wood grained digital paper. I added a small white offset to the text to make it pop.

I am addicted to books and always have been. So I loved the fact that the
Eyelet Outlet not only had book brads but book washi tape. It was so fun to
create this book card that was colored in Copic Markers.
The image is from Hetty Claire and is called "The Big Read."
I thought it was perfect for this card.
Finally, I addicted some bling jewel strips that
I love from Eyelet Outlet and are so easy to apply.
See you again next Monday with a new project.

Eyelet Outlet Washi Tape, Paper Flowers and Brads, that is. You can also use them to make customized gift bags, like this one. Just cover plain white cardstock with neat strips of tape (this variety is Happy Birthday Foil Washi)... print out an initial in your favorite font (this one's called Chicken Pie and was free on dafont.com)... trace and cut. Embellish with a few shades and sizes of Solid Color Paper Flowers held on with Candle, Party Hat and Cupcake or Cupcake Swirl Brads. For even more color and pizazz, diecut hearts from a coordinating tape, like Pink Checked Washi and use one repeat of the Birthday Tape to create your sentiment strip. Scatter a few Round Sequins and you're good to go. And yes, all of the above looks pretty good on a matching birthday card, as well!

I enjoyed creating this "summer vibe" card using things that remind me of summer! I love the boombox washi tape as it reminds me of days at the beach with our boombox playing our favorite summer tunes! I added the adorable sunglasses brads because that is a summer staple! Lastly, I had to add the flamboyant, pink flamingo brad for extra fun flair! Flamingos are too adorable!

It is time to "think spring" with this adorable brad that is part
of the Easter Bubble Set at Eyelet Outlet. These little sayings are
great to tuck into any card design.
Since it is spring -- flowers are a must. I used the daisy set of brads from
Eyelet Outlet. This is such a great set and comes in a variety of colors.
Finally, I used the chevron washi tape to add some extra color
to the corners of the card. An example of the washi tape
is shown so you can see all the different colors on this

Hello everyone. I'm here today to share a love card. Now, maybe two lizards don't strike you as the objects of love. I beg to differ! I've known several people who adore their pet lizards and other cold blooded creatures. They're not for me but I still like this theme as there is a twist of humor in it.
I used washi tape for the background instead of paper. I don't have a lot of desert themed paper but I had two washi tapes. With a bit of sky washi and some green skinny washi, a perfect background was born! This was a fun one to put it together.

Memorial Day is coming up on the 29th My Grandmother always called it Poppy Day when I was a child, so when I saw Eyelet Outlet's beautiful Poppy Washi Tape, I knew right away that I'd be using it on a Memorial Day card. As stated on the American Legion web site, "The red poppy is a nationally recognized symbol of sacrifice worn by Americans since World War I to honor those who served and died for our country in all wars."

Eyelet Outlet Dinosaur Brads make any day both DINO-mite and REX-cellent, as this pair of adorable minicards will attest. Small shapes like these two inch circles are brilliant for building little scenes at brad scale, with just enough room for a Dino, a Tall Palm and Sun and Cloud Brads and yes, a stamped and paper-pieced volcano!

Like a butterfly emerges and unfolds its graceful wings,
A child grows and develops with the love a mother brings.
I'm thankful for the times when you encouraged me to try,
For God gave me wings, but, Mom, you taught me how to fly.

For the borders I added some brown strip pearls from Eyelet Outlet
and then also used them around the baby giraffe as little stones.
Coloring for the giraffe was done with Copic
Markers. A punch die wasl also used on the border.
