Hi, Connie here using a couple of mixed media tags with a really cool and fun technique. How about making photo corner flower embellishments out of the Creative Photo Corners Black?! The really cool thing is Scrapbook Adhesives carry many colors of Creative Photo Corners which means many different flowers can be made! Take a minute and check them out!!
Photo Corner Flower Embellishments
The first thing I did was prepare a base for the Photo Corner Flower to sit on. Place a piece of white cardstock on a sheet of Adhesive Sheet 4×6-inch and punch a large circle. Remove the back liner and you’re ready to make some flowers!
Place the large cardstock circle on a flat surface with the sticky side up.
The shipping tags were inked and stamp to create a mixed media backdrop for these flowers. Thread red twine and tie into a simple bow. Note that a library envelope was inked and stamped in the same manner to hold one of the tags.
Would you like to know how I made the card? Well, I would love to share it with you. Let’s get started.
Halloween Ghosts Card Background
To keep with the Halloween theme, I used purple cardstock and orange ink. Simply dab some ink with an ink blending tool onto the purple cardstock to create an orange cloud shape.
Make sure to use chalky ink so the inked area is clearly visible on top of the purple cardstock.
Cute Little Halloween Ghosts
Next, I stamped and colored ghost images with colored pencils. Then fussy cut them out with detailing scissors.
Next, die-cut a house, tombstones and fences from black cardstock.
Decorate the Tombstones
Embellish the tombstones by adding glitter. To achieve this, I applied E-Z Squares® Refillable Dispenser onto the die cuts, sprinkle black glitter on the top. Press the glitter into the adhesive and tap off excess.
This simple technique is called Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside. Taking our adhesive from beneath layers to shine as an accent/embellishment.
Assembling the Card
Now it’s time to put all the elements together to create this cute card. Adhere the spooky house onto the purple card panel using 3D Foam Squares Black Small Size.
Since I did not know exactly how large my Halloween card would turn out, I waited until I finished the card panel to make the second layer.
The panel I created is a thick dimensional scene. So with a craft knife and a steel ruler, I hand trimmed the orange cardstock to fit the card panel. Cut the white cardstock into a card base to fit the matted panel.
For the ground area on my card, I added a line of glass glitter. Apply Dual Tip Glue Pen in a horizontal line on the card front to create the ground area. This glue pen is perfect for adhering the glitter because it dries clear! Next, sprinkle the glass glitter over the glue and tap off any excess. Let dry thoroughly.
Punch out a sentiment on my label maker and adhere to the card. Voila…your cute Halloween ghosts card is ready!

Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a fun fall décor makeover. I don’t have as much time to spend on fall décor projects now that school and sports are back in full swing. Rather than start from scratch on an accessory for my home, I quickly embellished a store-bought piece with the help of some of my favorite go-to adhesives.
Here is the tabletop resin word before I started this project. This piece is great as-is, but I thought it could be even better with a pop of color. This word is roughly 8 inches long and 5 inches tall, which made it the perfect size for a quick makeover. The small dots inside each letter immediately had me thinking pompoms! The brushed finish needed a touch of sparkle so I chose a bright copper glitter.
To begin, I applied Extreme Double-Sided Tape to the front face of each letter.
Next, I removed the top liner from the tape and sprinkled on copper glitter.
Lastly, I applied a Mini Adhesive Dot to the center of each ball and pressed on a pompom embellishment. I chose to decorate each letter with a solid color, but I think a fun colorful mix would look amazing as well.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to personalize store bought Fall décor items for your home. ~Dana Tatar
It’s so much fun to add loads of dimension to your cards using your favorite die cuts and sentiments with 3D Foam Squares. Hi, Sheri here, and I want to show you how I created this Flower Truck Thank You card!
Next, die-cut two flower truck shapes with turquoise cardstock. Alter one by cutting away only the pieces you wish to pop up. Then lift them with small 3D Foam Squares.
Use the Dual Tip Glue Pen with Flower Soft to create textured flowers for your flower pots and let dry completely. Who has Flower Soft in their stash? Love them! Really gives the flower truck some flower power 🙂
After cutting the rest of the pieces, add more 3D Foam Squares to the back of each layer and assemble.
I love how much of an impact it makes with so little effort!
I hope you were inspired to add a little dimension to your cards as this sweet Flower Truck Thank You Card! Sheri Holt

Hello crafty friends! Judy here today. I’ve put together a Happy Fall tag with a little mixed media and some dimension. Last weekend, my daughter and I enjoyed a warm sunny day with a walk through the yard and flower gardens. We saw four different kinds of butterflies! That gave me the inspiration to add a butterfly to this tag.
Each letter has Distress Oxide Ground Espresso and Crackling Campfire inks dabbed onto them. When dried, press each letter into the Versamark ink, cover with clear embossing powder, and melt with a heat tool. The result is a shiny clear coat on the letters.
Stamp Happy with black ink on cream card stock and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Dab Ground Espresso and Crackling Campfire inks with a fingertip. Add narrow black cardstock mat behind it with E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.
Die-cut three leaves from cream script patterned paper and leave in the die. Use a black marker to drawn veins through the opening. Ink the leaves with Distress Oxide inks in Ground Espresso, Cracking Campfire, Ripe Persimmon, Peeled Paint, and Fossilized Amber with a fingertip.
Die-cut the butterfly from a cream patterned paper and emboss in its coordinating folder. Rub the raised areas with Distress Ink in Ground Espresso and Black Soot.
Paint the butterfly wings with a water brush using Distress Oxide Inks in Crackling Campfire, Fossilized Amber, and Ripe Persimmon. An embossing ink marker is used to add ink to spots on wings, sprinkle clear embossing powder over it, tap the excess off and heat emboss.
The butterfly feelers are formed from black craft wire and secured behind the butterfly head with Adhesive Dots Micro.
Hello crafty friends! Tracy here, and today I have a fun little tutorial to share on how to create this textured checkered pattern using Creative Photo Corners. Here are all of the details.
I started by cutting my front black cardstock layer, 3.5×4.75. Then at the top and the bottom, I added Creative Photo Corners White. This cardstock size should let you have 5 photo corners across. This is the beginning of your checkered background.
Last month I shared College Visit Scrapbook Layout with you where I used the E-Z Squares® to create a bold and unique heat embossed background. I teased that I would have a softer one coming up this month and I’m ready to share that with you today! Christine joining you with a little boy scrapbook layout featuring the same technique but in a less bold way!
As you can see already the effect on this one is quite subtle – you have to really look to see the white embossed E-Z Squares!

Crafty Foam Tape was absolutely perfect for popping up my GIANT title! The story behind this is in hidden journaling – but suffice it to say the word “YOU” needed to be the star on this layout second only to the pictures.
Then there are the little details that needed adhesive! The script part of my title is super skinny. I opted to use the E-Z Runner Grand with the Permanent Dots Refill in it. I still managed to tear it, but thankfully I was able to cover it up! My little stars are all added using Adhesive Dots Mini!

Hi, friends! Looking for some Halloween card inspiration? Teri here, and I’ve got a couple of fun and simple Halloween cards to share with you today.
These cards were easy to make with patterned paper, cardstock and stamps and would be easy to recreate. You can use the extract paper crafting products I did or you can change it up by substituting with products of your choice!
Simple Halloween Card Making
Start by decorating a card base with patterned paper panels. Be sure to place some of the panels at an angle. Trim any paper that is hanging off the edge.
Once you’ve adhered your papers onto your card, add a strip of Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2in to the panel. Remove the liner and apply glitter onto the tape. Don’t have any glitter? Use flock or sand instead. By the way, don’t forget to make sure your tape is fully covered with glitter (or flock). Rub your finger over it to make sure there are no sticky parts exposed!
Set your card aside. Stamp and die-cut several Halloween-themed images on cardstock. Color them in with markers.
Arrange your Halloween images together to make a scene. I like to adhere E-Z Dots® Permanent onto the back of my images and then attach them onto each other. Once I have my desired look, I apply a strip of Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4″ to the images.
Stamp a Halloween sentiment on cardstock and add it to your card. Then complete your card by adding a few sequins or gems to it with Adhesive Dots Micro!
Change Up Simple for a Second Design
This design is a great one for making two cards at the same time by cutting up a paper panel and using pieces on both cards.
You can mix things up as I did by changing your arrangement. Place the same paper from the first card to the bottom of your second card or vice versa! Use similar stamped Halloween images or change it up by using different ones.
Thanks for checking out today’s post! What kind of Halloween cards will you make?

Hi everyone, Yvonne here with a romantic Circle Frame Card with some gorgeous and easy to create details like a double bow and a glittered frame. Using the E-Z Squares® Refillable Dispenser it’s super easy to create a glittered circle frame!
Bonus! I have the secret to transforming a single bow in a double-tailed bow is… well… let me first show you how to make the Double Bow Frame Card. Then I will let you in on my bow secret (wink wink)! Shall we get started?
The Circle Frame
Let’s create the base of the frame by nesting two circle thin metal dies to die-cut a ring shape with white cardstock. I used washi tape to secure the dies to avoid shifting while cutting.
To start to embellish the frame, use tweezers to pick up a square from the E-Z Squares® Refillable Dispenser and place onto the circle frame. Repeat this step, leaving a small gap in between, until you complete the circle.
Next, fold in the square ends to the back of the frame.
Sprinkle gold glitter embossing powder over the E-Z Squares. Make sure to press the powder into the squares to secure before tapping off the excess.
For my card panel, I used a pretty design from a patterned paper. Then adhere the glittered circle frame over the bird image with some 3D Foam Squares White Mix to create a beautiful dimensional effect.
Lastly, distress the edges of the square image and slightly ink the edges using brown ink.
Let’s start with a simple white satin bow and set that aside. Next, cut two pieces of white satin ribbon, cut the ends like a fishtail and adhere them together with Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4in on the top, as shown in the picture.
Connect the tails and the bow using Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4in to create the double bow embellishment. Yep…it’s that simple! Try it on your next card creation!
