Baby Dresser Card

Happy Thursday, crafters!  Today I've got a sweet little baby card for you that I made on my Cricut Maker.  I used the debossing tip to add some texture to the dresser, but the best part of this card were the fabulous Eyelet Outlet products that were used!

I love the way the book washi tape looks on the top shelf!  The next shelf holds one of our book brads, a brown teddy bear brad, and a train engine brad from the train mix set.  And of course, the little hanger brad for the outfit!  I also added some enamel dots on the drawers.

I've shared the file for this card on my Cricut profile, so if you're a Cricut crafter, you can make this card for a little one you love!   

Thanks for stopping in today!  Happy crafting!

Your Biggest Fan


I have been waiting to use these cute fan brads from Eyelet Outlet.
And, I found the perfect opportunity with this image from
Power Poppies. I also added the screw brads from Eyelet Outlet 
since they went so well with the scene.

Of course, I had to use my favorite - the glitter washi tape that
I love from Eyelet Outlet and I embellished the strips with black
pearls. The last item I use was an pink enamel heart. 

Although some might consider this for Valentine's Day, I think
it is a great card for anytime of the year

Roaring Good Time - Masculine Birthday

 Hi everyone! It's Janet and today I have a fun driving card featuring a background made with really cool Washi Tape. I also used Driving Brads, red, and black Glitter Enamel Dots. I created fun sunglasses with a Sunglass Brad. Inside the frame, I colored black with a marker and then I filled the lens space in with Glossy Accents. I think the glasses look like they have actual lenses in them. It's a neat effect and it could be fun with any color to create colored sunglass lenses. 

To make the background, I applied the washi tape on white cardstock and then cut it into three pieces. I applied them on top of red A2 card. I made the accent with dies. It is a great place to stage the Driving Brads and enamel accents. This is a great birthday card for almost any man. It's a good one to keep in your stash and ready to give away.

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year - Part 2

The Studious Owl Note Pad holder is the perfect gift for your favorite teachers. 

Her entire body is made from layering the Brown Glitter Washi Tape which gives her a perfect amount of owl sparkle. Her pupils are two black Bumpy Bling jewels and the jewel on her tassel is a Silver Edged Stippled Brad. 

To make sure she can read every word in her Explore book from the Bicycle Brads, she is wearing her ever-so-fashionable reading glasses from the Eyeglasses Brads.

Lift up her head and you will find a special pocket that fits note pads or sticky notes. Oh, and if you need a ruler, this owl has you covered!  The inside is trimmed with the Tape Measure Washi Tape.  HOW CUTE IS THAT?!?!

Our last but definitely not least piece is for that very special bus driver. 

 Unfortunately, they sometimes bus drivers get overlooked so we need to try to always recognize what they do and how we appreciate them.  Imagine their face as your little hands them this card shaped like their school bus!

The two children on the bus are so excited to get to school because the bus driver makes it a fun ride.  The two Bumpy Bling headlights are leading them safely to school.

 I loved making this Back to School/Teacher Gift collection as it reminded me of when my babies were still in school and all the fun we had!

 I hope these inspired you to create something special for the teacher and bus driver in your life.  There’s nothing better than bringing a smile to someone’s face and with a little help from Eyelet Outlet, you can do just that. 😊

Have a wonderful week and always be STRATE UP CRAFTY!

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year - Part 1

As a child, my mom used to sing that song every year right around the start of school and I didn’t quite understand why. Many years later, when I became a parent myself, I got it and would sing that song at the top of my lungs so my neighbors could hear..hahaha. 

Although it may be a small reprieve for us parents, all the teachers out there are singing the same song but for a different reason!  They cannot wait to see our kids again and start the school year off with a bang!!

With schools starting back up, I though this is the perfect time to honor our teachers who devote their time, creativity and patience to our littles and to the bus drivers that safely get our littles to and from school. Truly Unsung Heroes! 

With the help of many different embellishments from Eyelet Outlet, I was able to bring this four-piece Back to School collection to life!

The Apple Floral Arrangement would be a perfect gift for any teacher to have sitting on their desk. It’s approximately 6” tall and made with 95% paper!

For the adorable little worm, I used Dark Blue Glitter Washi Tape for his spots and two tiny black Pearl Bling for his eyes.

The highlights on the apple are made by using the Gold and Silver Print Glitter Washi Tape. Perfect amount of sparkle. All the leaves have been embossed to give it a more realistic look. 

My absolute FAVORITE part of this piece are the FLOWERS! I made these from the White Paper Flowers that I inked with yellow and orange distressed inks.  You could never tell they were once white! In the center of each flower is a 12mm Black Jewel Brad


Here's another fun gift for that special teacher!  A Crayon Treat Box! 

This, too, is made from cardstock and pieced together to make this fun treat box. It can be filled with anything but I thought what teacher wouldn’t love some sparkly washi tape so I filled it with the Silver Star Glitter Washi Tape and the Green Patterned Glitter Washi Tape.  On the front of the box, you will notice a bright and shiny apple from the Apple Brads collection.  The very top has two Foam Hand brads dangling from a ruler letting our teacher know that they are #1!

Want to see more from the collection? Stay tuned! 

The rest of the collection will be revealed tomorrow!!


Have a wonderful week and always be STRATE UP CRAFTY!

Autumn Door Card

I always admire door cards and while I've made a few over the years, I think this one is my favorite!  I made this card on my Cricut Maker and I used the debossing tool to add lots of dimension to the door itself.  I used a brick digital paper uploaded as pattern fill.

I used some gold foil vinyl for the mail slot and door knob and I added an Eyelet Outlet envelope brad  to the mail slot and a tiny round gold brad to the door knob.

The mini leaf brads are some of my favorites and so I couldn't pass up on opportunity to add a few to my Autumn wreath.  

I'm in the mood for fall, if only the temperatures here in Texas would cooperate.  I'm so over these triple digit temps!

Here Comes The Bride!

 Do you need a elegant bridal themed card for a bridal shower or wedding?

Sometimes it is fun to think outside the box! And that was my inspiration for using the paper flowers to create a bridal skirt! After embossing the bride's bodice and fussy cutting it out. I cut and added the fancy long bling to the waist line and then began adding white paper flowers for the skirting. Embellishing with jewels from the jewel strips. Lastly, I adhered my creation on a background I created using the wide romantic washi called floral nostalgia wide. 

I love how it turned out and I hope you do too! Thank you so much for stopping by! Don't forget to shop at Eyelet Outlet for all your crafting supplies!

Hooah! US Army Induction Card

 One thing I love about Eyelet Outlet is that no matter what the topic, there are brads and washi tapes that will help you create a special card for the topic you want to recognize. 

Today I have made a card to give to a young man who is entering the US Army. The die cuts were made using Cricut Design Space. The letters are cut out of black vinyl. On the front, I've used Army Men Brads, Anodized Star Brads, Red Skinny Holiday Washi Tape, and Silver Stars Foil Washi Tape.

Once the card is opened, the inside displays well wishes. Accents of Silver Stars Foil Washi Tape, Army Men Brads and a Flag & Hat Brad continue the theme.

Donut Even....

Happy Saturday Everyone!! 

Is there anyone out there that doesn’t LOVE donuts? If so, I haven’t met them yet. If you ask me, I think they should be their own food group. 😊


As you can see, I was totally inspired by the ever-so-popular DONUT this week. 

I created this extremely unique card, which is called an Interlocking Square card, by hand scoring and cutting out the design and layering different types of cardstock to give it stability.

On the front of the card, are six “windows” that pop open.
  Each window is decorated with a Donut Brad pop-dotted up for extra dimension. 

Inside each window, each Blue Blinged out box and on the inside of the card is the coordinating Donut Washi Tape!! How fun is that?!?!

But wait!  It gets even better!  Did you know Eyelet Outlet also carries the cutest matching stamps that totally bring everything together????


The sentiment on the inside "I donut know what I'd do without you" and the adorable donut stamp are from the Donut Stamp Set which was specifically designed with these brads and washi tape in mind!!


This card was such a blast to make. Hope you enjoy! 

I’m off to get me a chocolate donut! 😊 


Have a wonderful week and always be STRATE UP CRAFTY!

A-MAZ-ING Birthday!

A few weeks ago I told you these buckle cards were addicting!  I've got another one for you today that's perfect for an Autumn birthday.

Most of the images I used for this card came from the Cricut image library.  I love the Eyelet Outlet scarecrow brads I used on the buckle part of the card!  I also used a few of our popular pumpkin brads on the front.  

There's some tutorials on YouTube for card using Buckle Fold cards using punches.  If you are a Cricut crafter, I've shared a version of this card on my Cricut profile.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have an A-MAZE-day!
