Creating Little Fox Scrapbook Page with E-Z Stars Runner

Hello everyone. I’ve got a quick layout tutorial for you today, featuring my E-Z Stars Runner Refillable Dispenser and Pigment Powder Gold for the perfect accent!

Little Fox Scrapbook Page by Donna Salazar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

This is a photo of my grandson in his Nick Wilde costume from Halloween. I had this monoprint that was great colors to compliment the photo and there is one little star in the print that made me think it would be cute to use E-Z Stars Runner Refillable Dispenser to embellish.

I cut the monoprint down and adhered it to an 8.5 x 11″ piece of kraft card stock.

DonnaSalazar-LittleFox-Layout2

I used the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser on the back of the photo then added some Creative Photo Corners White and adhered the photo to a piece of torn denim.

DonnaSalazar-LittleFox-Layout3

I stamped the tittle with Mix’d Media Inx and embossed with the matching powder.

DonnaSalazar-LittleFox-Layout4

I cut out the words and used used Crafty Power Tape on the back of them as well as the denim backed photo.

DonnaSalazar-LittleFox-Layout5

I added E-Z Stars Runner Refillable Dispenser in a few places on the layout and sprinkled some Pigment Powder Gold mixed with clear embossing powder (1 part Pigment Powder to 2 parts embossing powder) over the exposed adhesive. I returned the loose powder to the container then heat set the stars.

I hope you like these fun and easy tips!

Creating a Hugs & Kisses Treat Container with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Hi!  AJ here today sharing a adorable little treat container for the upcoming Valentine holiday.  I have a thing for making adorable little packaging you can fill with treats for the recipient!

AJOtto-HugsnKissesBox-1Who wouldn’t love a fun little fry shaped box filled with their favorite treats?  My daughter happens to love these little oreo things, and I refuse to keep them in the house regularly making them the perfect treat filler.AJOtto-HugsnKissesBox-2To start, I like to dress up the actual box a bit before assembling.  It’s a bit easier to do prior to being adhered, but can also be done after the fact.  Place your pink card stock onto the Adhesive Sheet.  This is the 6 x 12 size, which fits perfectly into my die cutting machine.  Place your die onto the Adhesive Sheet, and run through the machine.  AJOtto-HugsnKissesBox-3The end result, a thin intricately cut design ready to adhere!  *Save the little chevrons for use on a coordinating card or tag.  Adhere the die cut to the box, flip over and burnish in a bit.  I then trimmed the ends off each side.  AJOtto-HugsnKissesBox-4 We can now start to assemble our box.  To do so, I use the E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable.  Not only is it thin little strips like our traditional E-Z Runner® Strips, it’s clear with a super strong hold!
AJOtto-HugsnKissesBox-5 To add a few little details to my box, I start with a smaller heart from the 3D Foam Hearts pack.  Place on another empty backing sheet, remove the backing, and cover with glitter.  I use a separate backing sheet for this part to try and minimize the glitter mess left behind. AJOtto-HugsnKissesBox-6I am also adding a few sequins, and the Dodz™ Adhesive Dots are my go to for this.  The mini size is perfect for the smaller sized sequins.  You can place your sequins on the Dodz, and try out placement on your project before securing.
AJOtto-HugsnKissesBox-7 Lastly- it’s not as visible in this picture, but I didn’t like how the seams of the box looked from the inside, so I cut another piece using the pink card stock, and will secure inside the box.  Not only does it provide a cute contrast to the overall project, it covers the seams beautifully.  The little strips in the E-Z Runner™ Grand make that curve easy to follow.AJOtto-HugsnKissesBox-8I love how this turned out- and that cute glitter covered clothespin! Watch for that next post!  AJOtto-HugsnKissesBox-9enjoy!

Quick Birthday Card Trio with 3D Foam Squares

Hello, it’s Amy here with a birthday card that turned into a trio of cards 🙂 Of course, using 3D Foam Squares to bring them up a notch and dimension!

amy-tsuruta_turtley1

Check out today’s project supplies including E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser and 3D Foam Squares.

amy-tsuruta_turtley2

I picked up a set of 10 cards and envelopes at a shop for $1 – great deal, right?! Well, when I opened up the packaging I realized that the ‘cards’ were kraft card panels.  Honestly, that’s still a good deal for 10 envelopes! So I went ahead and adhered the panels to white card blanks…issue resolved!

amy-tsuruta_turtley3

The panels would be a good idea to whip up some quick note cards, but I really wanted traditional cards for this project. Next up is coloring the images:

amy-tsuruta_turtley4

I don’t know about you, but when I make more than 1 card, I start from the bottom and work my way up to the top. I finished my cards off with the coordinating sentiments:

amy-tsuruta_turtley7

I kept the kraft panel plain so that the main image and the sentiments would be the stars of the card.  These would be perfect for kids or adults.

Thanks so much for stoppin’ by!

Simplicity with Adhesive Dots Mini and Crafty Foam Tape

Hello Crafty friends! Michele here to share a fairly simple card. With a little bit of color, sparkle secured with Dodz Adhesive Dots Mini and dimension with Crafty Foam Tape, I focus on the image and nothing more. I am usually the gal who spends literal hours on a card with tons of details…..but occasionally I like to simply things a bit.

I adhered the white panel to black card stock using Crafty Foam Tape (another favorite that I use on EVERY card I make!).

A Wintery Birthday Card with 3D Foam Frames

Hello everyone!  Today, I have a Wintery Birthday Card that I framed with our 3D Foam Frames .  Its very cold and wintery where I live!  The snowy landscape inspired me to make a card befitting for a winter birthday in Minnesota!

judy_hayes-awinterybirthdaycard1a

The stamped wintery scene is accented with white paint and glitter applied to dimensional Tsukineko Neon Amplify White. One 3D Foam Frames surrounds the scene and is covered with glitter. So easy to do!  Just sprinkle glitter over the adhesive!

The pine boughs were cut from brown and green papers which were covered with Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6ʺ. Once die cut, glitter was sprinkled over the adhesive.  The paper color shows through with glittery sparkle.  The white “snow” accents are made with Tsukineko Neon Amplify White sprinkled with glitter while wet.

A DODZ Adhesive Dots 3D  holds the branches in place under the tag.  A few DODZ Adhesive Dots Small tucked under some branches hold them in place. The stamped tag is also held in place with DODZ Adhesive Dots Small. The card layers were assembled with E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser.

Warm Winter wishes to you!

‘Forever Yours’ Valentine with Keepsake Envelopes Mix

Hi! It’s Erica and today I’m sharing a valentine I created using the Keepsake Envelopes Mix.

img_0425

I started by tracing around a tag and then cut out the cardstock tag (I like to save my tags and use them as templates).

fullsizerender-2

Next, I adhered the cardstock tag to a piece of pattern paper using the E-Z Runner® Grand Permanent Strips and cut around the tag.

fullsizerender_2-2

I then used a piece of Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/2″ Permanent to adhere the sentiment to my tag.

fullsizerender_1-2

I added flowers and a twine bow to my tag. I then removed the backing from the Keepsake Envelopes Mix and placed it on a piece of pattern paper. This allowed the pattern paper to show through. I wrote my valentine a note and placed it inside the envelope. Finally, I paper clipped the tag to my envelope.

Snowy Kisses Gift Bag Tutorial with E-Z Runner Permanent Fine

Today I wanted to create a “sweet” gift bag of kisses leftover from the holidays, using Bo Bunny’s Winter Wishes Collection with our E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine Adhesives Dispenser for my vellum accent pieces. I’m also using Thin 3D Foam Squares – Mix Black and E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips to put everything else together.

Snowy Kisses Gift Bag by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Gathering up my materials, this is what I will be using…

margiehiguchi-500-snowykissesgiftbag-grouppic

With a 5.0 x 5.5 in. piece of Icicles paper, I adhered a strip of vellum that I cut from the Winter Wishes Foil Vellum Paper with E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine Adhesives Dispenser – seriously cannot see the adhesive on this vellum! Using the same adhesive, I ran a strip across (and a little on the back) and placed my Lace Ribbon on top and folded the ends in the back. Set aside.

margiehiguchi-500-snowykissesgiftbag-step1

I wanted a subtle dimension to my panel so I pulled out my Thin 3D Foam Squares – Mix Black and placed a few in the back of my die cuts. Set aside.

margiehiguchi-500-snowykissesgiftbag-step3

Now to work on the layers, first the tree die cut was adhered by E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips and placed over the frame on the right side. Then add the foamed girl die cut on the left with a little overlap.

margiehiguchi-500-snowykissesgiftbag-step2

I adhered a vellum accent (cut from the same vellum as the foiled strip) with E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine Adhesives Dispenser and placed on top of the tree die cut.

margiehiguchi-500-snowykissesgiftbag-step4

Taking the liner off the Thin 3D Foam Squares – Mix Black, adhere the embellished frame die cut on top of the panel.

margiehiguchi-500-snowykissesgiftbag-step5

Using E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips, adhere the panel to the Glasine bag. Add chocolate kisses in the bag and fold 0.50 in. from top with scoring tool. Seal with E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine Adhesives Dispenser (so the seal looks invisible).

For the golden snowflake, a 3D Foam Squares – White, Small fits perfectly on the back and will hold it in place securely.

I die cut the ‘2017’ and Celebrate embellishment and added to my card design.
