A Textured Background using Creative Photo Corners

Hello crafty friends! Tracy here, and today I have a fun little texture filled background featuring White Creative Photo Corners on my Shine Like the Stars card.

I love creating with Creative Photo Corners in different ways than JUST holding your photo. Using the same colour of corner and creating a pattern makes a gorgeous textured background for any project.

Textured Background Step Outs

Start by cutting a piece of white cardstock to 3.5 x 4.75-inches. Beginning at the bottom, create rows of Creative Photo Corners White. The first row should have five complete Photo Corners. For the second row, start with half of a photo corner and continue up the card repeating this pattern.

Continue this pattern until you have about 1-inch at the top. Cut a piece of patterned paper that is 3.5 x 1-inch, and a border strip to go on top. Adhere these to the top of the background piece using the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser.

Cut green cardstock to 3.75 x 5-inches and patterned paper to 4 x 5.25-inches. Adhere the patterned piece to the white cardstock base, and the textured background piece to the green cardstock using the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser.

Adhere the green matted textured piece to the card base using Crafty Foam Tape White.

Complete the card by adding the sentiment sticker using Crafty Foam Tape White, and then a few star embellishments.

Snow Globe Shaker Ornament Tutorial

Welcome! Shellye McDaniel here today with a DIY Snow Globe Shaker Ornament. This project tutorial is great for kids and adults!

Snow Globe Shaker Instruction

I started with a clear, disposable cup with lid. I found a package of these at my local dollar store. The cup measures approximately 2 x 2 inches.

Step 1 Snow Globe Shaker Ornament by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

First, I attached a mini snowman figurine and two tiny bottle brush trees to the inside of the lid with Adhesive Dots 3D.

Step 2 Snow Globe Shaker Ornament by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

For the hanger, I used a piercing tool to create a hole in the top. With an embroidery needle, thread the Baker’s Twine through the opening and back to make a loop. Cut the end and double knot to secure.

Snow Globe Shaker Ornament by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Step 3

To create a snowy background to the inside of the cup, I used 3D Foam Circles White Mix in the small size. I randomly placed them behind the snowman (using it as a guide). Sprinkle glitter and tap off excess. Done!

Make the Shaker

Finally, I added a small handful of glittery snow into the cup. To attach the cup to the lid, I ran a bead of the Dual Tip Glue Pen around the edge. Place the lid onto the cup to seal. To dress up where the cup and lid conjoin, I used the Dual Tip Glue Pen to attach the Baker’s Twine. Perfect!

Snow Globe Shaker Ornament by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Step 4

For the base, I wanted to be sturdy so I used a combination of a 3-inch scalloped circle die, lightweight chipboard, paper, and a sheet of Adhesive Sheet 4x6in.

Now isn’t that the cutest ornament? It would look great as part of a tablescape too! With some help, these make a great craft for older children, tweens, and teens too! Here is a second look at the Snow Globe Shaker Ornament.

Good Vibes with Glittery Banners on Cards

Hi, everyone! Teri here to show you how to make fun banners with 3D Foam Pennants, glitter and a few other basic supplies for your card!

A Banner Idea

Let’s get going! Start by randomly adhering several strips of patterned paper onto a card front. Making a scrapbook page? Use a large piece of cardstock as the base for a layout instead.

Now take three fishtail banners from the 3D Foam Pennants. Leave the liner paper on one side. Dip them into glitter, covering completely them with the sparkly stuff. Remove the excess glitter and liner, and tack them onto your project.

Cut a piece of twine and tie a bow at one end of it. Use Adhesive Dots Micro to mount the twine to your card. Cut the excess twine with your scissors. It’s that simple!

Cardmaking Accents

Complete your banners by adding another 3D Foam Shape and burnishing Metallic Foil Transfer Sheets Holographic Colors onto it. Butterflies, Flowers and Hearts all look wonderful on banners. Be sure to pick out a 3D Foam shape that is appropriate for your card!

Place three 3D Foam Circles onto your card. Remove the liner paper and dump glitter over them. When you remove the excess, you’ll end up with something that looks like faux brads.

To finish, stamp a sentiment, I’m using “Sending Good Vibes,” onto a strip of cardstock. Place it onto your card with 3D Foam Circles White Mix.

Make Some More!

You can easily recreate these banners. I followed the same design formula to make a second card.

Slight changes were made. I changed the look of the card front by placing the patterned papers in a different way. The butterfly from 3D Foam Garden Shapes is adhered at a different angle on the banner.

Rather than placing the sentiment strip on it in the same place as the first card, I affixed it slightly higher on this one.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!

Happy creating!

Foiled Thankful Card Tutorial

Hi everyone, Yvonne here. The beautiful colors of autumn inspired me to make this card with a foiled Thankful sentiment. Using Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch with Metallic Transfer Foil from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit with Foil, you can easily make your own foiled word stickers. Let me show you how.

Foiled Thankful Card Tutorial by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Autumn Colors in the Tree

Die-cut and emboss a tree from dark brown cardstock. Set aside to work on the leaf die cuts.

To make the colored leaf die cuts, first ink a piece of Kraft cardstock using a dauber and autumn colored inks. Simple dab circle shapes with the dauber in various colors and let dry thoroughly.

Once the ink colors dry, die-cut and emboss the leaf shapes. You will have beautiful colored autumn leaves!

Adhere the leaves to the tree using Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix. TIP: I cut the 3D Foam Squares into small thin stripes to fit behind the die cut.

Making the Card Panels

Die-cut and emboss an old book page into a rectangle shape. To alter the panel, use an ink blending tool and a brown ink pad.

Mat it on a piece of dark brown cardstock and adhere using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.

Next adhere the embellished autumn tree die cut to the panel using Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix.

With a black fine-liner, draw some horizontal lines at the foot of the tree to anchor the design.

Foiled Thankful Card Tutorial by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cut a piece of green and orange satin ribbon. Wrap the slightly wider green satin ribbon around the panel and adhere it to the back using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong. Then wrap the orange ribbon on top of the green ribbon and the card panel, adhere the same way.

Adhere the finished card panel onto an olive green cardstock using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong. Then mat upon a white card base with the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong.

Make a Foiled Thankful Sentiment Sticker

Adhere a piece of Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch to the back of the dark brown cardstock by removing the yellow liner and placing cardstock onto the adhesive. Make sure to transfer the adhesive well by burnishing with your fingers or a bone folder.

See a 1 minute How to Use Adhesive Sheets for Die-Cutting and More video below.

Now to make the cardstock into a foiled sentiment! Adhere a piece of Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch to the front of the cardstock, using the same process as above.

Remove the white liner from the front side of the cardstock and place a piece of red foil from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit with Foil. Apply the foil colored side UP. Transfer the foil by burnishing gently with your fingers.

Peel away the foil sheet and die-cut the sentiment. Remove the liner from the back side and adhere the foiled Thankful sticker to the card base.

To complete the card, adhere fall colored rhinestones to the tree. Since my rhinestones are not self-adhesive, I am using Adhesive Dots Micro.

And voila…your foiled Thankful card is ready.

Holiday Kraft Gift Tag Tutorial

Hi, it’s Connie Mercer here with some holiday kraft gift tags that make a fresh loaf of pumpkin bread look even better. For these sweet gifts I’m using 3D Foam Squares Black Regular Size to give the tag that lift I was looking for. Dimension is a good thing, right?!

Holiday Kraft Gift Tag Tutorial by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

My supplies include stamps, ink, pre-cut tags, E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser, 3D Foam Squares Black Regular Size, and Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8-inch. In addition, you will need brown paper bags for wrapping the mini loaves. Lunch bags work great!

Holiday Kraft Gift Tag Tutorial by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Holiday Kraft Gift Tag Tutorial

To create the tags, stamp foliage on each tag in green ink. Stamp the sentiment on kraft cardstock and trim them down to a label size.

Add the 3D Foam Squares Black in Regular Size to the back of the sentiment labels and then adhere the sentiments to the bottom of each tag.

Add berries and splatter with white acrylic paint.

Using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser, add strips of adhesive to the back of the tag reinforcement piece. Then add it to the top of the tag, around the hole.

Open up the brown paper bag, cut out the bottom of it, and wrap it around the mini loaf. Secure the sides with the E-Z Runner Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser. Wrap twine around the mini loaf and tie on the gift tag with the twine.

Add a label with the flavor of the bread on the front of the wrapped mini loaf using  Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8-inch. The label will not get lost or fall off with this strong adhesive. It’s perfect for this!

This is a fun project perfect for a cool fall day. Now’s the perfect time to get the Holiday Kraft Gift Tags made. They will be ready when the mini loaves come out of the oven.

Embellishing a Traveler’s Notebook with Coffee Lovers

It’s time for the Fall/Winter 2019 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with this adorable coffee-themed traveler’s notebook! As a SUPER SPONSOR, we’ve provided great prizes too! Grab a cuppa and join the hop with your own coffee themed artwork!

What is Coffee Lovers? It is a coffee-loving (or tea or cocoa) community of card makers open to everyone. Their blog offers inspirational coffee-related posts and bi-annual coffee blog hops that YOU can join. You get a chance to win the giveaways as a blogger! Read to the very end!

Dana shows you how she embellished this colorful notebook with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® products. Follow along and learn a few tips and ideas.

Coffee Lovers Traveler’s Notebook

Hi, coffee loving friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing a coffee-themed traveler’s notebook insert. One of my biggest challenges while traveling is finding a good cup of coffee. Hotel coffee bars and even coffee shops can be hit or miss.

Coffee Lovers Traveler's Notebook Insert with Recipes by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To help me get my coffee fix while on the road, I embellished a traveler’s notebook insert. I used the super cute Cream and Sugar collection from Doodlebug Designs and some of my favorite Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® products. In addition to patterned papers and embellishments, inside the insert are 15 delicious iced, hot, and spiked coffee recipes. No matter what I’m in the mood for, I have a yummy brew to pair it with!

Embellishing with Felt and 3D Foam

I started this project with a blank notebook and then added embellishments. It is fun to create an insert from scratch using patterned paper. Please read how to create a Traveler’s Notebook from scratch if you want to DIY the entire TN.

How to Build a Layered Coffee Cup Embellishment for a Traveler's Notebook Insert Cover

I had a lot of fun embellishing the cover of this notebook! First, I used the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser to apply patterned paper to the front and back covers. Next, I created a layered tag for the cover. I stacked die-cut tags and felt pieces between layers of Thin 3D Foam Squares. Thin 3D Foam is a great way to add a subtle dimension when space is limited. The layers of felt help add texture and are also strong enough to hold up inside the notebook.

How to Use Mini Adhesive Fots to Adhere Small Die-Cuts and Embellishments in a Traveler's Notebook or Planner

Mini Adhesive Dots are perfect for securing tiny bows and small die-cuts to notebook and planner pages.

How to Use Thin 3D Foam Squares in a Traveler's Notebook or Planner

Thin 3D Foam Squares add a subtle dimension to die-cuts when space is limited. Thin 3D Foam Squares are half the height of the standard 3D Foam. The high-density foam will not crush and maintains a strong permanent bond no matter what media you use!

How to Make Shaker Pockets with Keepsake Envelopes for Your Planner and Traveler's Notebook

Create an Easy Shaker

Tuck die-cuts and sequins inside Keepsake Envelopes to create a fast and tidy shaker pocket. Simply insert items into the envelope and close with the resealable flap. Your embellishments are secure yet accessible in a see-through envelope with clear, permanent adhesive on the back side.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! If you’re looking to try some new coffee recipes, I’d love to have you stop by my blog. I share links to all 15 of the recipes I included in my traveler’s notebook.

Woodland Masculine Birthday Card Tutorial

As I looked around my craft space for inspiration for my project today, I found a tiny deer and evergreens dies and a wood circle. Rather than make a holiday card, I decided to make a masculine birthday card. This design could easily be a holiday card by simply changing the verse!

Masculine Birthday Card Tutorial by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Masculine Birthday Card Tutorial

To start, I die-cut a deer and two evergreens from heavy kraft cardstock.

Next, I colored the trees and added slight shading to the deer. Then I cut a scrap of paper for the ground. To cut the curved edge, hold it against the wood circle as a guide.

The ground piece is fastened in place with E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser. I like to use this adhesive for its super-strong hold to the wood. Attach the larger tree with E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser as well.

The smaller tree and deer are adhered with Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix, which I cut to fit behind the die cuts.

I use a foam applicator to add ink along the edges of the wood circle.

Making the Card Layers

To start the card base part, cut plaid paper to fit a 4.25 x 6-inch card and adhere it to the card with E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser.

I cut burlap paper and dark green mat. Attach burlap paper to the dark green mat using E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser.

Using a combination of E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser and E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable, fasten the burlap strip to the card front. Note that I applied the Ultra adhesive on the ends to keep them from fraying.

For the sentiment, stamp and clear heat emboss “happy birthday,” then cut it into two separate words. Behind each word, add dark green mats and adhere them with E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser.

Masculine Birthday Card Tutorial by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To add dimension, pop up each word with Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix on the back side of the mat. Add them after wood circle is in place.

Attach the embellished wood circle to the burlap with E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser. Then add the matted sentiment on the burlap above the wood circle.

Place a twine bow with Adhesive Dots Micro as the final touch. Now my masculine birthday card is all ready to send to someone special!

12 Days of Gratitude Loaded Box

Greetings! Shellye McDaniel here today. The days of giving thanks are upon us and I have a delightful way to keep those notes and memories! By repurposing a boat-shaped food container, I created a gratitude loaded box. Let me show you how!

Gratitude Loaded Box Base

To get started I took a paper “boat” food container and de-constructed it by unhinging the flaps.

Next, I cut a sheet of patterned paper and Adhesive Sheets 12×12 inch slightly larger than the boat. I attached the adhesive sheet to the paper and then traced the boat onto the paper backing.

After tracing, I cut the piece out and carefully covered the outside of the boat. Before attaching the sides back, I trimmed any overhang of paper. I attached the flaps with Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2in and Adhesive Dots 3D for the buttons.

To the inside of the box, I used Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8in to attach mini pom pom trim.

Finally, I crafted several components that are fun and interactive for the inside!

Tag Details

I created tags by dressing plain chipboard using E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong with patterned paper. A combination of Adhesive Dots Micro, Crafty Foam Tape White, 3D Foam Squares White Mix, and Dual Tip Glue Pen were used to attach the various embellishments.

In finishing, I covered plain clothespins with strips of paper and then topped with these adorable wooden pumpkins. I wanted the pumpkins to sparkle, so I used Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch to coat the entire piece. Next, I sprinkled on some gold glitter and viola!

Thank you for joining me today!

Easy Glittered Background Cards

Hi, everyone! Do you like cards that have a bit of glitz and glimmer? Teri here, and I’m going to show a quick way to make cards with glittery backgrounds that are sure to tickle your fancy!

These cards easy to make with 3D Foam Shapes from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Making a Glittered Background

The first thing you’ll want to do is pick a 3D Foam Shape. You’ll remove all the foam shapes, leaving you with the negative piece of foam like this.

Adhere to the negative you have chosen to the patterned paper. I recommend using a neutral woodgrain pattern or subtle text pattern.

Peel up part of the backing sheet and dump glitter all over the foam. (Don’t have any glitter? Try using seed beads or pigment powders instead.) Return the excess glitter to your storage container.

Remove the rest of the backing sheet and dump a second color of glitter all over it. Again, return the excess glitter to your storage container. (Feeling adventurous? Try using three to four different colors of glitter. Simply pull up less of the backing sheet each time.)

Take a card and apply a couple strips of patterned papers to the bottom of it. Then mount the glittery background to it. You’ll also want to print or stamp a sentiment on cardstock and place it onto the card. I recommend using Extreme Double-Sided Tape as it’s super strong and works well when applied on top of the glitter.

Finishing Up the Card

Complete the card by randomly adding some sequins to the open spaces. There’s no real rhyme or reason here. You’ll just want to eyeball things.

The beauty of this glittered background technique is it works with many of the different 3D Foam Shapes. The first card uses the negative from the 3D Foam Leaves pack, while this second one uses the negative from the 3D Foam Butterflies pack.

While I used the exact same steps to make this card, I was able to get a completely different look by using a different foam shape and some other colors of glitter and sequins.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Feel like making a glittered background card like mine? I’d love to see your creations! Be sure to leave a comment for me to check it out!

Happy creating!

Create a Layered Border on a Fall Scrapbook Layout

Welcome back, crafty friends! Tracy here and today I have a fun little autumn-inspired layout to share featuring Creative Photos Corners in a fun new way. Here are the details for my Layered Border on a fall scrapbook page.

Create a Layered Border on a Fall Scrapbook Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Assemble the Layered Border

The first step to create my Layered Border is to cut 2 strips of kraft cardstock that are 2.75 x 11.25 inches. Cut one of the strips into 0.5″ pieces. Next gather your Creative Photo Corners Kraft, Creative Photo Corners Ivory and Creative Photo Corners Gold.

Begin the Layered Border at the bottom of the cardstock strip. Add a strip of the same kraft cardstock above each row of corners using the Double-Sided Tape Runner Strips Permanent. This will cover up and black and ivory backgrounds that may show underneath. Continue layering up the Layered Border using that same pattern, corners and strips.

Using your 4×6 photo as a guide in the middle of the strip, bring the rows up to the bottom of the image.

Continue from the other end of the Layered Border doing the same design and again bring it up to the middle section of the strip. Trim each end leaving just the tips of the corners.

Create a layered background using cardstock and patterned papers, and mat the Layered Border using a dark brown cardstock. Adhere the Layered Border at the side of the layout using Double-Sided Tape Runner Strips Permanent.

Complete the Layout

Double mat the 4×6 photo in ivory cardstock, and adhere it to the layout using Crafty Foam Tape White.

Start adding your embellishment bits, Fall pennant banner and the Grateful piece using 3D Foam Squares White Mix and Adhesive Dots Micro.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Fall!
