A Group of Cats

I love this adorable stamp by Rubbernecker Stamps called Group of Cats. They look like they are up to something, don't they? Or listening very carefully. Rubbernecker has some really adorable cat stamps and it was hard to choose. I have a list now!

I watercolored my background and then stamped the cats in Archival Black ink. I added a die cut sentiment and then three cute black cat brads (which also come in white!).
Thanks, Rubbernecker, for sharing your stamps with the Eyelet Outlet Team!

A Little Baking and A Lotta Love

I don't do a lot of baking, but I have a friend that loves to bake. She gave me a little gift recently, and as I was musing over her thank you note, I found this cute designer paper (The Paper Studio) in my stash. And I knew exactly what brads I would use for accents!
My layout was easy, thanks to MFT Stamps' Blueprints 15. Take a peek at the Baking Brads and Mixer & Cup Brads in the Eyelet Outlet Store! They are perfect for those in your life that love to bake - or cook! In fact, there is a wonderful section in the Store called Food, Drink, & Cooking Brads and Eyelets that has some really adorable designs!

Here is a close-up of the baking/cooking/muffin pan (you can make it whatever you want!):
And another of the spoon, mixer and measuring cup:
Sweet treats for those that love to make them!

I also wanted to share today how I store my supplies from Eyelet Outlet. I am always looking for others' ideas on the best way to store things so I can find them, but also so it's neat and portable. I found this storage container at my local Hobby Lobby for $5.99. It has individual compartments on the outside for my brads and eyelets, and each one snaps off, and also snaps tightly to prevent mishaps.

The lid comes off and has a large area inside for ribbons, or washi tape, or larger brads, as you can see here:
It works very well for what I am looking for in a storage container -- and at a great price (even better with a 40% off coupon)! What kinds of ways do you use to store your brads and eyelets? And washi tape? I also have a Ribbon Carousel that I converted to a Washi Carousel :)
I will have to show that another day.
