View Full Version : My November Challenge: Eyelets--ugh?!

11-07-2009, 03:09 PM
If you are like me, you may like the look of eyelets but not necessarily the work it takes to makes them look good--line up straight--etc.

For a long time, I've been avoiding using eyelets on my creations, but I recently bit the bullet and bought a Crop-a-dile! After seeing how easily they work at a TAC Party that I went to. I also bought some of the big eyelets that have a neat look to them.

SO -- My CHALLENGE is to make a card, ATC, Tag--whatever you wish and be sure to INCLUDE AN EYELET of some sort. You don't need to use a Crop-a-dile....just use whatever method you have for setting them.

Here's my sample of a card I made using a big sized eyelet and also a picture of my prize--a set of 4 SU! stamps! I will draw a name from those who do my Challenge in the month of November, on December 1st.

Be sure to put your creation in the Challenge section of the Gallery and then also make a post here on this Thread with a link to your card.

Pretty card! Haven't used eyelets in so long. It'll be fun banging my hammer!

Ooooooo nice prize. I think I may have to make a card with an eyelet this month.

Ooh, pretty card - great challenge. I have a cropadile, but don't use it much. I still find it easier to use my hammer. Guess I'll have to pick one and use it soon!

I just used them recently when I made some Halloween cards! And I don't have a Cropadile either, got out my lil ole hammer and setter and away I went! It WAS fun and I have a ton of eyelets!

I made one! It's in the gallery. I couldn't find this thread for some reason when I looked the other day. Glad you bumped it up!

Here's the link (I think) I've been a little link challenged lately.

We've got a couple of great cards so far!

I know the Holiday is just starting up but I'm 'bumping' this Thread up as a reminder that we have until midnight on Monday to submit a card with eyelets on it! Then I will draw a winner on Tuesday, December 1st.

One more day to make a card with eyelet(s) on it for my November Challenge. Be sure to post a link to the card on this Thread so that I know about it--have fun!
