Memorial Day 2016

Hello, my friends Lisa here with you today. It’s May 30th and Memorial Day. Today we are remembering all the heroes that gave their lives so selfishly in service to our great nation.


Poppies hold a special significance for Memorial Day.

The use of the poppy was inspired by the World War I poem “In Flanders Fields“. Its opening lines refer to the many poppies that were the first flowers to grow in the churned-up earth of soldiers’ graves in Flanders, a region of Europe that overlies a part of Belgium. (Source: Wikipedia)

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields. — John McCrae

My card is a simple tribute to those who served our country and fought for our freedoms…and paid the ultimate sacrifice. We will NOT forget you.

  1. I stamped the flowers, masked one off and stamped again to create a more “clustered” look and then used Distress Markers to water-color them.
  2. Using the Distress Markers again I created the background.  At the top I used water and Pigment Powder in Blue to create a shimmery “sky” effect.
  3. The panel was trimmed to size and two pieces of patterned paper were die-cut.
  4. The water-color panel was adhered to the first piece of patterned paper using 3D Foam Squares – White, Regular.
  5. A small scrap of paper was stamped with the sentiment using Archival Ink in Cobalt. The scrap was die-cut into a small circle and a hole was made near the top using a Crop-A-Dile.
  6. Navy Twine from the Girlie Grunge Twine 4-Pack was looped through the hole created by the Crop-A Dile and a small bow was made. A Dodz™ Mini was adhered to the back and it was attached to the front of the card.
  7. Using the E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser, I added adhesive to the back of the water-color panel/patterned paper piece and attached this to the second die-cut patterned paper. HOWEVER…just before completely adhering, I tucked in the ends of the twine from the sentiment circle. This piece also got the same adhesive and was attached to a 4¼” x 5½” Navy base card.

Here are some close-ups of my card:

You are Amazing!

Hiya!  AJ here with a fun treat sack to share featuring the Premium Double-Sided Tape 1″ Permanent and silver mica and glitter as sparkly accent across the front!


I love pretty little packaging, and time permitting, I try to create little customized gifts for varying people in my life. With the end of the year approaching, this seemed like a great project for a teacher gift.


To start, I stamped the background of my bag.  I then adhered two strips of Home Hobby Premium Double-Sided Tape 1″ Permanent.  This is one of my favorite techniques for adding that pop of something different to my projects.


Trim the ends off and remove the backing.  I used Silver Lux Mix mica and glitter on mine but think of the many beads/glitter/flock combinations you have in your craft pile!


Once the Premium Tape is covered with the silver glitter and mica, I worked on the stamped panel. Using the Crafty Foam Tape – Black, I adhered the panel to its die cut base.

To adhere the panel to the card, I used the Dodz™ Medium.  I wanted to make sure it was going to stick on that glitter 😉


You can bake cookies and fill each bag to the top OR add a nice gift card to a certain coffee house inside.

Patriotic Thank You Card

Here’s a Thank You card to our military who keep our country safe! Remembering all those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom and those who serve to maintain that freedom on this Memorial Day weekend!

It’s Judy here today. I’ve created a patriotic “Thank you” card in honor of Memorial Day. I love the classic red, white and blue! There’s a bit of sparkle, too, on the stars!

Here’s the directions:

Form a 4¼ x 5½ʺ white card.

Cut 4⅛ x 5⅜ʺ piece of white card stock. Emboss with embossing folder

Cut 4½ʺ pieces of blue and red ribbon and Donna Salazar Designs with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® – Texture Ribbon (burlap)

Apply Home and Hobby Premium Double-Sided ¼ʺ Tape to long edges of burlap Texture Ribbon and to back of red and blue ribbons.


Use E-Z Stars Runner to apply stars to blue ribbon.


Sprinkle with glitter, press onto stars and remove excess.


Fasten burlap Texture Ribbon to embossed card stock. Fasten stars ribbon to red ribbon and fasten both to burlap ribbon. Trim ends even with card stock edge.

Tie piece of Girlie Grunge Twine (blue/white) above red ribbon. Place 3 short pieces of twine over knot and tie again. Trim ends


Use E-Z Dots Permanent to fasten embossed piece with ribbons to card front.

Cut piece of blue cardstock to fit “thank you” die. Cover back with black Crafty Foam Tape.


Place die on card stock side. Pass through die cutting machine 2-3 times. (Paper and foam will be cut but backing usually is uncut.) Use tweezers to remove small pieces in letters. Remove outside pieces leaving die cut fastened to paper backing.


Lay die cut on card front to help with placement of stars. Apply stars to top of card.


Remove die cut. Sprinkle glitter over stars, press into stars and remove excess.

Fasten “Thank you” to card overlapping burlap Texture Ribbon.



Happy Memorial Day!


Thank You Card Using Donna Salazar Products

Hi crafty friends! Lisa on the blog to share a fun Thank You card using some of my favorite products from the Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Mixed Media line.  A Thank You card is always appropriate and when you make one that uses so many fun elements like this one does, it’s sure to bring a smile.


(sentiment reads: “Thanks a Latte” )

Most of my elements were pre-cut utilizing dies. I find that dies make card-making a lot more fun and can really be unique IF you think outside the box a little.

I first stamped my coffee cup with an archival ink and water-colored it using water-color pencils. Then a die was used to cut it out. (Please note: All the other pieces were die cut in advance to make assembly easier.)

Since my paper was already die cut I’m ready to assemble:

Using the E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Adhesive on the back of the white die-cut card stock and the patterned paper the layers are built up on the card base. I like this adhesive a lot because if I make a mistake I can move it right after adhering, but then it becomes permanent.


Next, I wanted to adhere this very thin die-cut ring to a paper doily. Well, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® has the perfect adhesive for that! The new E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser. It’s soooooo thin! Only .08″ wide and perfect for circles.


On the backside of the doily (where the ring of the die-cut paper shows from underneath) I laid down a thin bead of glue using the Dual Tip Glue Pen and adhered into place.

I knew I wanted to add dimension to the coffee cup, so I added 3D Foam Squares -White,  Regular to the back of the cup.


Before taking off the liner paper and adhering the coffee cup, though, I wanted to add a little feminine bow.

Using the Girlie Grunge Twine in Pink I doubled up a length of twine and tied it in a bow, making sure the bows are relatively even and trimming the ends. Secure the bow to the doily using a Dodz™ Medium.


To give the bow some stability and to keep it from “flopping” my favorite trick is to dip my fingers in the Girlie Grunge Art Medium and run my fingers over the bows. It truly will help the bow stiffen up without making it look crazy. 😉 Just wash your hands as soon as possible.


Now is the PERFECT time to adhere that coffee cup, too! 🙂

Stamp the sentiment, find the placement, and add some of the super fun Girlie Grunge Tissue Tape in Ash and Oak as an embellishment.


I had a tiny cup of die-cut glitter hearts so I added one using a tiny piece of a 3D Foam Square – Black, Small.  I love the extra added touch of bling.

Here are a few close-ups:


One more….


I hope you enjoyed today’s card. I’m going add a Starbucks gift card to this and give it to a very special friend of mine. I hope she likes it!

Have a wonderful weekend.

Altered Frames with E-Z Runner Ultra

It’s Erica and today I’m sharing two frames I altered using E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser and Extreme Double Sided Tape 1/4″.

Altered Frame One by Erica Houghton

Altered Frame Two by Erica  Houghton

I started with an inexpensive frame and removed the glass and back of the frame. I then lined the outer edges with E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser.


I  then covered the frame with pattern paper.


Next, I cut four narrow strips to place around the inner and outer edges of both frames. I adhered each strip using Extreme Double Sided Tape 1/4″.


I adhered the metal accents using the Dual Tip Glue Pen and gave the flowers dimension using Crafty Foam Tape White.

Here are a few close-ups:

Adhesive Ain’t Just for Adhering!

Good morning! Michele with 3 cards using adhesive for something other than adhesive! (Gasp!)   How about using the 3D Foam Squares  as an interesting backdrop? As you already know this gal loves lumpy, bumpy cards with a lot of texture.  Using the foam squares is a fun easy way to achieve that!


I added pink and gold glitter directly over the squares and embellished with a die cut flower, sentiment, lace, sequins, and E-Z Stars Runner Refillable Dispenser from Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® line. I adhered my pieces using Dodz™ Small, Dodz™ Mini and Dodz™ Medium.


I also tucked a piece of Girlie Grunge Twine under my flower.


I loved this technique so much I made two more cards!  This one uses gold glitter and a water colored background.  I again adhered my flowers, leaves, and sentiment using Dodz™ Small, Dodz™ Mini and Dodz™ Medium.


Here is my third card.  I used chunkier glitter to the squares in 3 different colors.  I added my embellishments using the Dodz™ Small, Dodz™ Mini and Dodz™ Medium.  I added a bit of Donna’s Girlie Grunge Twine in Navy.

celebrate4tutorial Here is what I did to create my backgrounds for each card.  First, start with a package of 3D Foam Squares – White, Regular.


I left the squares on the original sheeting and cut it to the size I wanted to cover the card panel.  I carefully peeled off the tops to each square.  Position it over your patterned or water colored paper card panel.


Once I place it over my paper I press down to ensure that each square is adhered well.

celebrate8tutorial Peel off the top layer to reveal the second sticky side of the squares.


Pick your glitter or embossing powder to sprinkle over the top of each square.

Little Girl Birthday Card

Hi everyone, Laurel here.  It is with sadness that I write this post as my last with the team.  I have enjoyed every minute but have to step down.  Life has just gotten in the way of my crafting.  I have a 1 1/2 year old grand daughter who I see a lot of and I just never have the time to craft like I used to.  I want to thank Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® for having me and I do hope to get back into regular crafting one day!

Today I have a simple birthday card for you.  As I have said before, I like to give hand made cards to the students in my class and am always needing more.

Birthday 7 Card by Laurel Seabrook

I used the  E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser as always 🙂 to adhere the main panels to the card.

The main flags and number I mounted with the 3D Foam Squares because I love the dimension they add.  To adhere the die cut sentiment, I used the DODZ™ Mini in a few places.

Art Journal Pages with Girlie Grunge Art Medium

Hi there,

it’s Stephanie here today and I want to show you more of my Art Journal Pages I created by using the versatile Girlie Grunge Art Medium from Donna Salazar by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I got this product to experience with it and had so much fun with it.


The Girlie Grunge Art Medium is a gel and decoupage medium you can use to adhere collages, to mix it with pigment powders and also to make some phototransfers. This is a really versatile art medium you don’t want to miss.

I love to use it for my collages in my Midori Art Journal. Here you can see some pages on which I used the Girlie Grunge Art Medium


I just used it with a brush by applying a thin coat onto my paper and laying down the paper scraps on it. I also used it to fixing the sketches I made with pastels and charcoal pencils. It gives a light shiny varnish and protect the pages and drawings.

Thanks for visiting us today!

I wish you a nice creative day!

Stephanie 🙂

DIY Denim Flower Card Tutorial by Donna Salazar

Hello everyone! Donna Salazar here with a quick photo tutorial for you. Today I’m using the denim panels from my Pennant Set with my Jumbo Rose die to make a cute little hanging flower with fancy Pigment Powder stamens.

DIY Denim Flower Enjoy Card by Donna Salazar

For each flower I die cut 2 of the smaller roses on the Jumbo Rose die. I cut the panel in half and laid it over the smaller rose and leaf then die cut the denim (I saved the leaves for another project).

EnjoyCard1 500a

I dipped a cotton swab in my Girlie Grunge Art Medium then smoothed it out by twirling it while lightly touching it to my finger. I then dipped the wet tip into my Pigment Powder Brown and used a clean finger to twirl and smooth the Pigment Powder which makes the powder look more metallic and shiny. I cut it in half and folded some premade flower stamens in half.

EnjoyCard2 500

I used my Girlie Grunge Tissue Tape Ash and Oak (in Ash) to wrap the stamens and the swab together.

EnjoyCard3 500

EnjoyCard4 500a

I used the E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser (my new favorite runner) to add adhesive around the center of one of the roses.

EnjoyCard5 500

I adhered the two rose die cuts together with the petals off set.

EnjoyCard6 500

I put the wrapped stamen through the center of the flower with the light color on the inside then wrapped the base of the flower with my Girlie Grunge Tissue Tape Denim and Floral (in denim).

EnjoyCard7 500

EnjoyCard8 500

I wanted to make sure that the flower would stay together so I wrapped the end with Girlie Grunge Twine.

EnjoyCard9 500

EnjoyCard10 500

I used kraft card stock for the base of the card and folded it with a little extra on the back. I use the E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser along the inside of the card and adhered a piece of the loopy lace from my Lace Ribbons pack. I painted over the top of the lace as well as the right edge of the card with Girlie Grunge Art Medium then, while the medium was still wet, I used a fluffy paintbrush to brush on my Pigment Powder Gold.

Donna-EnjoyCard1 500

This is a close up of the fancy stamens as well as the little loopy Girlie Grunge Twine embellishment that I added in a few spots on the card. To make the loopy embellishment I wrapped the Girlie Grunge Twine around a couple fingers then dipped one end in my Girlie Grunge Art Medium and twisted. I let it dry and the end became stiff which made it easy to tuck under the flowers.

Donna-EnjoyCard2 500

This is a close up of the Pigment Powder Gold on the edge of the card as well as a peek at another of the loopy twine embellishments.

Donna-EnjoyCard3 500

Under the flowers is a stamped and die cut embellishment made with my Flower Bouquet stamp and die set. I made a watercolor stamped image with Mix’d Media Inx then dried it. I then stamped over the same image with watermark ink then sprinkled a mixture of clear embossing powder mixed with my Pigment Powder Gold (2 parts embossing powder to 1 part Pigment Powder). I returned the excess to the container then heat set. I also added the butterflies made with my Cascading Butterflies die with Girlie Grunge Art Medium and the title with 3D Foam Squares – White, Small.

Donna-EnjoyCard4 500

This is another close up of the fancy flower stamens. I also added a die cut flower that I made with my Bitty Blossoms and Big Blossom dies and my Dodz™ XL. I used Dodz™ 3D to adhere the little folded Carnation Creations flowers that are tucked under the denim.
