2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

We are excited to be participating and as a SUPER SPONSOR of 2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!! Coffee Lovers is a community of coffee-loving (or tea or cocoa) card makers. They have a website that provides inspirational coffee-related posts and seasonal coffee blog hops. Today Michele Kovack shares her fun coffee themed projects just for the occasion!

Coffee Break Card by Michele Kovack for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Summer17 Coffee Lovers BHop

Hi guys! I couldn’t resist making TWO cards for today’s hop! I am a total coffee addict and can’t seem to start my day without it! My first card uses some fun coffee stamps on a stitched heart. I always like my projects to have dimension, so I am equally addicted to Crafty Foam Tape!

For the bottom layers with the plaid, yellow, and black paper, I used E-Z Squares® Refillable Dispenser. Super fast and easy to adhere everything! I wanted to add a little felt heart to the center, so  I used Dodz Adhesive Dots Small.

My next card uses a large coffee image that was colored with colored pencils. I added a bit of sparkle and dimension between the layers with my faithful friend, Crafty Foam Tape.

I added some coordinating patterned paper, a red bow, and a little red felt heart.  The knot of the bow and the felt heart were secured using an Dodz Adhesive Dot Small.

Creating a Scrapbook Page with E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser and Crafty Power Tape

Hi there, it’s Stephanie here today with another scrapbook page, using my favorite E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser and Crafty Foam Tape White. Let me share a little tutorial with you.

I have a sea themed photo and used a wonderful matching paper collection from Authentique Paper called Seafarer.

1 – First I chose a pattern paper for my background. Then I picked different patterned papers for layering and deliberately cut freehand the squares because I love the imperfect look.

2 – I adhered the first layer of squares with the E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser and the second layer with Crafty Foam Tape White to create more dimension.

3 – Also I adhered my photo with Crafty Foam Tape White. For the perfect accent, I added a little ship that I created from Shipmate Die Set.

4 – Last step was to add stickers and embellishments. I used the sticker sheet of the same Seafarer collection.

I wish you all sunny creative days!

Thanks for visiting us today!

Ribbon Flower Tutorial with Adhesive Dots and Extreme Double Sided Tape

Hello crafty friends! Tracy McLennon here sharing a SUPER easy DIY Ribbon Flower embellishment tutorial. Confession: I am a ribbon lover with a huge collection of pretty ribbon of all kinds and love to incorporate into my papercrafting projects. You just need to have the right adhesives to work with. Today’s perfect adhesives are Extreme Double Sided Tape and Adhesive Dots Large.

Here is a snapshot of the products that I used to create my Ribbon Flower embellishment and card.

Step 1: Once you have chosen your ribbon, cut a piece that is about 12″ long. You may not need quite that much. But a little more is better than not enough.

Using my Extreme Double Sided Tape 1/8″ , I added a strip of the adhesive the full length of 1 edge of the ribbon. Press firmly to ensure the adhesive has attached the full length of the ribbon.

Step 2: Remove the protective strip from the Extreme Double Sided Tape 1/8″ and begin “pleating” the ribbon. These folds will stick to each other as you go. Continue until you see that you will have enough “pleating” to create the flower shape.

Step 3: Using a circle punch that will be smaller than the flower that you are creating, cut a piece of cardstock. The colour doesn’t matter, it will be completely hidden. Then I added a Adhesive Dot Large.

Take your “pleated” ribbon, flatten and shape the flower onto the Adhesive Dot Large. Using a large button with string tied through it, I added another Adhesive Dot Large and adhered it on top of the ribbon flower.

Step 4: You are ready to adhere your ribbon flower to any project you choose. For the simple card that I created I added the flower using a 3D Foam Square. The card was assembled using my E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable.

Thanks so much for stopping by and happy crafting!

Recycling and Decorating Jars Made Easy with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Hi everyone, Christine here today with a project idea for recycling and decorating jars. There’s something very natural and pretty about re-using a jar and filling it with flowers. It can be made even better by adding just a few decorations. Today I’m using Crafty Power Tape, Extreme Double-Sided Tape, 1/4″ Permanent, 3D Foam Square, White Regular and MyStik® Permanent Strips.

I started by cutting a strip of cotton (I didn’t worry that it needed ironing – adds to the natural look!)  I applied two lines of Crafty Power Tape.

Easy to remove the backing from this tape and wrap around the jar, it affixes perfectly.

To adhere the textured ribbon I selected Extreme Double-Sided Tape, 1/4″ Permanent. This is extremely tacky and ideal for so many surfaces.

For an additional decoration I chose a mini wooden heart, a 3D Foam Square, White Regular was ideal to keep it in place.

I chose to decorate a second jar, again with cotton and this time a die cut heart affixed with with MyStik® Permanent Strips.  You can decorate as little or as much as you wish, it’s fun to put your personal stamp on a plain jar.

The finished jars with some flowers from the garden.

Perhaps place them on garden tables if you are having a barbecue or on your kitchen window sill to bring the garden into your home.

Thanks for stopping by today and don’t forget to check out all the great products on the website.

DAD ATC Card with Adhesive Sheets + More!

Today is Father’s Day and although mine is not with me, I am always happy to CELEBRATE HIM 🙂 A card wouldn’t do so I decided on an ATC (Artist Trading Card) using mostly Adhesive Sheets to put it all together.

DAD ATC by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L


  1. Cut patterned paper into a custom ATC size (4.0 x 2.875 inches). Normally they are 3.5 x 2.5 inch – I like to be different 😉
  2. Apply Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6″ on the back of patterned paper and copper + white foil paper. See video at the end of instruction on the how to.
  3. Die-cut patterned paper with alpha dies to spell out “DAD.”
  4. Die-cut copper and white foil paper with gears steel rule die.
  5. Adhere to the ATC as shown in photo. Excess can either be cut or dust talcum powder to alleviate the stickiness.
  6. Add metal gear piece with Dodz Adhesive Dots 3D (the exposed area will be covered by a photo).
  7. Color copy a photo and cut to 1.625 x 2.125 inches. Adhere with E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser. The vintage photo is of my dad as a Japanese high schooler 🙂
  8. Punch a hole with a paper piercer in the ATC and add metal embellishment with matching brad.

Patriotic Décor Featuring E-Z Stars

Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today with another off-the-page project for my Guest Design term. The summer months covers patriotic holidays such as Memorial Day and 4th of July. These occasions are often celebratory in nature, and I enjoy gathering with friends and family, decorating, sharing a meal, and all the entertainment that goes with it. I had a lot of fun adding stars and stripes to a hand grater to create a rustic décor piece that I will be able to display several times a year.

I used ColoriQue by Lisa Marie Jimenez, an ink formulated to color metal, to apply red, white, and blue sections of color to a grater. (Any paint or ink that will adhere to metal will work great here!) Once the ink was dry, I applied E-Z Stars to the blue portion of the grater. After the stars were in place, I sprinkled them with shimmery glitter.

Next, I hung the grater and filled the inside with white fabric flowers and a flag. I applied Adhesive Lines to the flower stems and the flag pole to secure the embellishments to the sides of the grater.

For me, the American flag is a symbol of pride, but also serves as a great reminder to pause and give thanks to those who have made sacrifices to secure our freedoms. I want to give special thanks to my fellow military families and friends for their service.

Thank you for the Many Wonderful Things Shaped Card

Hiya- Happy Thursday!  AJ here to share of shaped card I recently made. I love creating shaped cards, the recipient knows you created it just for them. For this card, I used a combination of E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable and 3D Foam Squares White Small to put it all together.

I follow the same exact method each time, cutting the base out using a shorter folded over card, and allowing for the top to not get cut. I then cut a second die cut, same color card stock, in the full size, and adhere to the card base using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable. This avoids those pesky little cut off top pieces to show and creates a polished result.

For this card, I also popped up the blue center die cut, along with the little heart using 3D Foam Squares White Small.

I then added a few red gemstones to tie in the red heart.

Weaved Nautical Father’s Day Card using 3D Foam Squares

Father’s Day is fast approaching. Today I’m creating a clean and simple (CAS) card with dimension using 3D Foam Squares White, Regular, perfect for the dad who loves the ocean or lives by water – a fisherman, swimmer or lake house loving guy. Authentique Papers Seafarer Collection is just what is needed. Here’s a look at my finished card.

I have my material out on the table ready to use, along with 3D Foam Squares White, Regular and my E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser to put it all together.

First, I wove part of the background. I chose two coordinating patterned papers and used a little bit of adhesive to hold the edges in place as more and more strips were added. The E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser makes this easy with its thin strips. When finished, I trimmed off the excess hanging over the edge of the card.

To adhere the cardstock stickers, I used 3D Foam Squares White, Regular. They add a little bit on dimension to this card front and can be easily mailed.

To finish, some natural burlap string in a fun knot was added as well as the word “Dad” in letter stickers.

You can use this basket weave application on any style of card. It’s also a great way to use up scraps in your stash or if you’re not a stamper. Go get crafty!

I hope all of you enjoy Father’s Day with the men in your lives. I also want to shout out to any single moms playing both roles. Thanks for stopping in today.

Thinking of You Card using 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit

Hi all!  Angel here again and sadly, it’s my last day as a guest designer here on the fabulous Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog.  My card today features the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit using a new stamp and matching dies set to create this beautiful card. Let me show you how…

After the flower image was stamped, colored and die-cut (I did a few), I laid them out over my card base to get an idea of where I wanted to adhere them and also to see where the sentiment would look best.

I love the 3D Foam Creative Sheet in the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit  – it’s the perfect thickness to add dimension but not too much bulk.  I cut it down to the sizes I needed and adhered them to the backs of the flowers.

Before placing the die cuts down, I stamped the same flower image onto the card base for extra interest and then the sentiment.

Once they were all adhered to the card base, I trimmed off the excess that were hanging over.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  And THANK YOU to Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® for having me as a guest designer!!!  🙂

Gift for Dad

Latisha here with you today!  Can you believe Father’s Day is just right around the corner? The project I am sharing with you, is a super simple decorated bag and tag, that anyone can create.

  1. Trim patterned paper to fit the front of bag and adhere it using E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable tape.
  2. Adhere a smaller strip from the “b” side of patterned paper (shown in the above image).
  3. Apply alpha stickers (“DAD”) to the bag.
  4. For the tag, trim patterned paper to size and corner round each corner.
  5. Adhere a strip of different patterned paper to the bottom of the tag with E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable.
  6. Let’s adhere the die cuts using Crafty Foam Tape: place heart die cut on the strip and center the sentiment die cut onto the tag.
  7. Punch a hole in the tag, and tie to the bag with twine. 

This was so easy to make, and turns a plain Kraft bag into something special.  This technique can be used for any occasion or holiday!
