A Special Memory Page

Hi everyone, Christine here today.  This is my year for trying out some new things. I picked up this journal online and chose to make a special memory page of a festive day out with friends.

A Special Memory Page by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Starting the Memory Page

Using E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser, I affixed cut pieces of the patterned paper onto the journal.

A Special Memory Page by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I knew I wanted to create interactive elements so began to create those separately.  Folding a piece of the patterned paper concertina style and affixing more panels.  I created a little die cut corner for the tag.  I will place photos onto these.

A Special Memory Page by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To securely hold the concertina element onto the page I opted for Extreme Double Sided Tape 1/2″, this will definitely hold!  Affixed a little tab to use as the opening.

Creating a small envelope and tying with twine.  Crafty Power Tape affixed to the reverse which will securely hold that twine in place.

Using a manila tag and  E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser to attach more patterned paper pieces. I added a little distress ink to the edges.  Within the paper set, there is pop out stickers, attaching 3D Foam Squares Regular instantly adds an extra dimension.

The page is ready for some photos and extra elements.

Repurpose a Winter Mini Album

Happy New Year!  Shellye here today with a trash-to-treasure mini album idea!  My husband was going to trash his old business card holder, but he gave it to me to see what I could do with it.  So I repurposed it to a “Winter Business Card Mini Album!”

Gather Supplies to Start the Mini Album

I am using patterned papers and elements from one collection. It’s easier to match up and create cohesive pages that way.

Repurpose a Winter Mini Album by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

For the business card holder that I have, you can find ones online. Mine includes 12 individual clear pages with three slots for cards on a page. Next, I gathered up several different adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesives to do the following.

Mini Album Detailing

To begin, I cut enough base papers to fill each of the card slots. I used the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill to attach two (non-double-sided papers) back-to-back.

For the front cover of the binder,  I wanted a good secure hold for the cover paper so I chose the Adhesive Sheets 6 x12 inch for attaching my patterned paper.

Afterward, I decorated the front with die-cut elements using the 3D Foam Circles White Mix. To create glittery snow drops, a combination of Adhesive Dots Small and Adhesive Dots Medium were used by simply adding clear glitter on top.

Along the edge of the album, I added a row of pom trim with the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8in – a perfect width and strength to hold in place!

The Inside Pages

For the first page of the album, I chose to adhere the wood veneer letters to spell out “Brr.” I added paper to the openings of the letters with the Dual Tip Glue Pen.

The Extreme Double-Sided Tapes worked best for attaching any of the embellishments to the top of the plastic.  I also used the Adhesive Dots Small for adding the buttons throughout the album.

Small photos and stickers for my planner are things that I can store inside the pockets.

Basically, I left one section available for a photo and filled the other 2/3 of the page with stickers and embellishments!

Layered Thank You Note and Bag Set

Happy January! Can you believe it’s half-way done with the month already? My kids received a few gifts from friends and family each year. I encourage them to send handwritten thank you notes. Creating handmade notes to send give them more personality and thoughtful touches. I included a cute bag (or sleeve) for the card to go in before placing it in an envelope.

Assembling a Note Card and Bag

Sharing a collage of step out images with instruction below it. You can see how I assembled the card below.

Layered Thank You Note and Bag Set by Shannon Morgan for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Step by Step Instructions

  1. Gather up supplies for the card, including patterned papers, embellishments, a card base and of course, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L adhesives!
  2. Start with adding a contrasting layer. I stuck with a lot of basic patterns (stripes, dots, basics) as they pair well together.
  3. Of course, I added a doily. You do not have to do this, I just love doilies.
  4. Add a piece of tracing paper behind a frame die cut, using the E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser which works perfectly for this. Place 3D Foam Squares Black Small along the back of its frame edge. Note before adhering to the card, I added photo frames for detail and more interest.
  5. To accommodate the narrow corners at the top, I trimmed the photo corner in the picture as shown, this makes it possible to adhere to the frame without showing the photo corner backing.
  6. Adhere the frame to the card front. Then adhere the heart in an off-center position.
  7. For the rest of the elements, you can see I layered on items randomly such as a ticket, washi tape, a starred cupcake topper and even added a stamped bunny image.
  8. Then a few more details added like a dainty tag, more washi tape, a butterfly tucked in the corner, and lastly the sentiment.
  9. Lastly, I embellished a bag (or a sleeve) with similar elements like the card to coordinate.

Here are a few close-ups of the details on this card and sleeve.

Quilt Inspired Snowflake Birthday Card

Hello! Judy here today with a quilt inspired winter background on a birthday card. I live up north where winter means snow, cold and warm quilts! That’s what inspired me to make this paper pieced quilt background and accented with snowflakes.

Quilt Inspired Snowflake Birthday Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Creating a Quilt Inspired Background

First, create a 4¼ x 6ʺ card base and set aside.

Quilt Inspired Snowflake Birthday Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cut a cardstock panel to 3⅝ x 5⅜ʺ for the background and apply Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6 to one side, leaving the top liner on.

Quilt Inspired Snowflake Birthday Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cut strips of patterned paper to widths of ½, ⅝, and ¾ʺ.  I used three double-sided patterned papers to give me a total of six designs.

Quilt Inspired Snowflake Birthday Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Peel back Adhesive Sheets liner about 2 inches.  Cut paper strips into various lengths and place on adhesive.  Leave a tiny margin of space all around the edge of the paper pieces.  Continue to peel liner and place paper pieces to completely cover.

Quilt Inspired Snowflake Birthday Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cover a card panel with Seafoam White embossing powder. Make sure to press it into spaces between papers and along edges.  Tap off excess embossing powder. Use a heating tool to melt the embossing powder for a beautiful finish.

Quilt Inspired Snowflake Birthday Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Other Card Making Details

Stamp snowflakes with Versamark ink.  Apply Seafoam White embossing powder, tap off excess and heat emboss.

Cut red and blue mats.  Fasten to pieced background using E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.

Quilt Inspired Snowflake Birthday Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Apply Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6 to cardstock.  Die cut snowflake with adhesive side up.  Partially remove liner, cover with embossing powder.  Finish removing liner and cover rest with embossing powder.  Remove excess. Heat to emboss.  Die cut blue snowflake. Use Adhesive Dots Micro to fasten white snowflake to blue one slightly offset. I fastened the center area and left tips loose. Fasten both snowflakes to pieced background using Adhesive Dots Ultra Thin at center with a few Adhesive Dots Micro on intricate parts near center.

Quilt Inspired Snowflake Birthday Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The Finishing Touches

Stamp verse on cardstock with black ink and clear heat emboss. Trim to size. Cut red mat.  Fasten together with E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.  Place 3D Foam Squares – White Mix (I used large ones trimmed slightly to fit.) on back.  Remove liners from foam squares. Cut  2 pieces of red twine. Stick one end of each piece to 3D Foam Square at ends of verse.  Place verse over snowflake. Wrap each twine around back leaving a loop along the edge and fasten with E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.  Finally, fasten all to card front using E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.

Divided Shaker Card Tutorial

Do you like to make interactive cards? Teri here, and I’ve got a fun twist on shaker cards for you! I’m going to show you how to make a divided shaker card! These cards are so fun, and they are incredibly easy to make with foam products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Divided Shaker Card Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by3L

Divided Shaker Card Base

Start by doing a little prep work. Cut a 4 1/4″ x 11″ panel of cardstock. Fold it in half. This will serve as your card base. You’ll also need a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ panel cut from a transparency sheet.

Divided Shaker Card by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

You’ll also want to cut a frame from cardstock to put on the front of your card, as well as a 4 1/4″ x 3/4″ strip of cardstock for a sentiment.

Divided Shaker Details

Take the card base and set it on your work surface. Apply four strips of Crafty Foam Tape along the outer edges. Leave the backing paper on the top of the tape strips. You’ll see why in a minute.

Divided Shaker Card by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Now, take out some 3D Foam Frames and adhere one frame to your card panel. Then apply a few more frames. Keep going until you’ve added as many frames as you desire!

Divided Shaker Card by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Also don’t be afraid to cut a frame in half and only use part of it. Be sure to line up the open side with your cut frame with the strips from the Crafty Foam Tape.

You get to fill up your shaker now. But, first, take a good look at your card and look for any holes where fillers might fall out! If you spot one, cut a small piece of Crafty Foam Tape and simply place it where the hole is.

Divided Shaker Card by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To fill your shaker, you can use beads, sequins, confetti and even gems! There is no limit to the possibilities! Make sure each compartment of your shaker card has something in it.

Divided Shaker Card by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Finishing the Card

Once you’ve filled your shaker up with embellishments, adhere the transparency to your cardstock frame. I like to use my E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser for this because the adhesive goes on flat and is super strong!

Divided Shaker Card by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

You don’t want your shaker fillers to stick to the transparency so be sure to rub it first with a non-stick embossing pouch or a dryer sheet. This is kind of like magic! Embellishments will not stick to the transparency!

Remove the backing paper from all your foam frames and strips and adhere the transparency and frame to the card.

Divided Shaker Card Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by3L

Finish your card by stamping a sentiment on the small strip of cardstock. You can also add a few gems to the outside of your card. The micro-sized Adhesive Dots are perfect for small embellishments!

I’d love to see your take on this fun technique! Share your divided shaker cards by leaving links to your projects in the comments field.

A Winter Warm Gift of Cocoa

Happy 2019 and Happy Winter to all of my crafty friends out there. Tracy here, and today I have a fun little winter themed project to share. A gift of cocoa is the perfect gift to warm the tummy of someone you care about on a cold winter’s day. This is a quick and easy project to create, which also makes it easy to create multiples of for party favors, teachers gifts to name a few.

A Winter Warm Gift of Cocoa by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Winter Warm Gift Base

Start with two pieces of cardstock: 10.75 x 2.25-inch and 2.25 x 2.75-inch.

For the small cardstock piece (2.25 x 2.75-inch), score at the 0.25-inch mark on either end. Using a 1.75-inch circle punch or die, cut a hole in the middle of the cardstock.

With the larger cardstock piece (10.75 x 2.25-inch), score the following marks at: 0.5-inch, 1.75-inch, 4.25-inch, 6.75-inch, 9.25-inch, and 10.5-inch. This piece can be folded like the photo below. It will create a shape similar to a milk carton.

A Winter Warm Gift of Cocoa by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Using the Extreme Double Sided Tape 1/8 inch, you can adhere the smaller piece in place within the larger piece of cardstock.

A Winter Warm Gift of Cocoa by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The inner piece should simply keep the K-Cup in place.

A Winter Warm Gift of Cocoa by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Embellishing the Package

Cut pieces of winter-themed patterned paper to cover the outside panels of the mini carton. Adhere them to the cardstock using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.

A Winter Warm Gift of Cocoa by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Add cardstock stickers or die cuts using 3D Foam Squares Black Small.

Adhesive Resolutions

It’s a new year and this year I’m making some Adhesive Resolutions!    This year I’m going to use adhesives that make my creating easier.  Additionally this year I’m going to use adhesives that hold strong! Finally this year I’m going to keep adhesives on hand to fill a variety of needs.  Because let’s be honest, when you have the right adhesives, creating is more fun!  Let’s take a look at what the right adhesives were for this new year layout!

New Year Adhesive Resolutions by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adhesive Resolution #1 – Use Adhesives that make Creating Easier!

This whole layout came together in about 30 minutes and a big part of that was because I used adhesives that made my creating easier!  Adhesive Resolution #1 met!

New Year Adhesive Resolutions by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adhesive Resolution #2 – Use Adhesives that hold strong!

The first place I look for a strong hold is in a runner.  The E-Z Runner Grand gives me that along with options.  If the White Permanent Strips aren’t quite strong enough, you can always go to the Ultra Strong Refill.  Although I generally only need that one for bulkier items like wood veneer.

New Year Adhesive Resolutions by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adhesive Resolution #3 – Keep a variety of adhesives on hand for different applications.

In just this close-up I have 3 different adhesives being used!  Beginning with 3D Foam Circles underneath my flowers, followed by Crafty Foam Tape underneath my picture, and finally Adhesive Dots to secure my buttons.  All of these ensure that I can not only put things on securely but also add dimension consequently making my adhesives serve multiple purposes!

Shine Bright Process Video

I’ve made a process video to walk you thru the whole creation, let’s take a look at that!

Thanks so much for joining me today!

DIY Unicorn Bubble Bath and Label

Hello friends.  Terri here, to help you celebrate National Bubble Bath Day! Yes indeed, I’ll take any reason to chill and have a relaxing bubble bath. But not just any old bubble bath; we’re having a Unicorn Bubble Bath!

DIY Unicorn Bubble Bath and Label by Terri Burson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Creative Label Making Tips

If you’re the crafty sort, you probably already have similar items that I’ve used, in your craft stash. Shaped nesting dies are the cornerstone of this project.  However, you can easily trim your label into a square shape. The unicorn stamping set from MFT Stamps was colored with Copic markers and my sentiment was printed from my computer. I’ll share more about the free font that I used, on my blog.

DIY Unicorn Bubble Bath and Label by Terri Burson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Incorporating Adhesive Embellishments

I wanted to add sparkle and shine, so I added a touch of glue from the Dual Tip Glue Pen to my Unicorn horn.  Sprinkle a bit of gold glitter for sparkle.  For my colored bubbles, I applied some of the Adhesive Dots Small and sprinkled clear embossing powder.  Tap the excess powder back into the jar, then heat emboss with a heat craft gun.  This gives a glossy shine to the unicorn bubbles.

DIY Unicorn Bubble Bath and Label by Terri Burson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

When to use Repositionable Adhesive

If you’ve ever wondered when is the right time to use your repositionable adhesive products, here is a classic example. Since I plan on creating a white embossed Adhesive Dot border around my black label backdrop, I want to center my white label temporarily. Simply drop the E-Z Runner® Grand Repositionable Dots Refill cartridge into the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser and run a couple lines of this less tacky adhesive. It helps to center my focal point for laying down an adhesive dot border, using my Adhesive Dots Micro. Once my dots are lined up, I can then remove my white label and begin the heat embossing process.

I failed to get a photo of this process but you can see the results in the first and final photo. Be sure to switch your cartridge to the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill to secure both labels together and to adhere to the jar.

DIY Unicorn Bubble Bath and Label by Terri Burson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Unicorn Bubble Bath Mix

I totally cheated on this recipe. It was so easy and inexpensive. I took advantage of the fact that the Crayola bathtub finger paint soap was half price after Christmas. I also bought a large bottle of Soft Soap in a creamy white formula. Because I thought it would be easier to layer my soaps, I purchased an inexpensive medium sized apothecary glass jar.

I simply layered my soaps, starting with the creamy white Soft Soap, then alternating layers, one color at a time between the white layers.  The glass jar lid is wide and easy to remove so you can pour or scoop your soap with a spoon into your bath water.

DIY Unicorn Bubble Bath and Label by Terri Burson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

This bubble bath mixture will last a very long time and it’s a great way to entice your little ones to take a bath!

Winter Shaker Card

Hi everyone, Yvonne here with a Winter Shaker Card, using Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch and Crafty Foam Tape White.

Sequins and micro beads are a  great way to add a snowy winter effect to your card and what better way that to emphasize them by making a shaker card so you can see all those tiny embellies twirl around behind the shaker window!

Let me show you how easy it is to make a card using Crafty Foam Tape White and adhere a detailed die cut without any glue trace…simply by making your die-cut into a sticker using Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch.

Winter Shaker Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

A Winter Shaker Card Base

First die-cut a window in a rectangle piece of white embossed cardstock. (Make sure the window fits the die-cut you will place over the window later).

Now use the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser to glue a piece of an acetate sheet to the back of the window.

Then adhere Crafty Foam Tape White to the back of the window, all around the window, so no shaker ingredients can escape. And then put some more Crafty Foam Tape White to adhere to a white card layer.

Winter Shaker Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Before removing the liner of the Crafty Foam Tape White sprinkle sequins, micro beads, and glitter into the square you made around the shaker window (on the back of the card layer).

Now gently remove the liner of the Crafty Foam Tape White and place a piece of white cardstock upon. Flip it around to see your shaker feature!

Trim the back layer to size and lightly ink the edges of the cardstock. Adhere on a white card base using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.

A Sticker Die Cut

Trim a piece of gold cardstock to the desired size. Remove the yellow liner of a piece of Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch and place the gold cardstock upon (with the back of the gold cardstock facing the Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch). Then die-cut the snowflake shape from the gold cardstock. Now you have created your own die-cut sticker! Next, you remove the white liner from the back of the gold die cut and adhere the die cut to the card base.

View this quick How to Use Adhesive Sheet for Die-Cutting video below.
