Photo Corner Flower Embellishments

Friends Mixed Media Tags with Photo Corner Flower by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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!

  1. Place the large cardstock circle on a flat surface with the sticky side up.
  2. Start from the outside edge, place the Creative Photo Corners Black around the cardstock circle to make a ring.
  3. Next, start on the second ring slightly overlapping the first ring.
  4. Lastly, place your third ring. The center will have an opening space.

Assembling the Tags

  1. Cover the Photo Corner Flower center with a button using Adhesive Dots Medium.
  2. 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.
  3. With three 3D Foam Squares Black Regular Size, secure the flower to the tag or envelope.
  4. To secure and lift the sentiment strip and label embellishments, use 3D Foam Squares Black Small Size

Love how the Photo Corner Flowers anchor the envelope and tag. Don’t forget to flick white paint onto the flowers and tags as a final accent.

Cute Halloween Ghosts Card

Hi everyone, Yvonne here with a cute Halloween Ghosts card. With Halloween coming up (my, how time flies!) I thought you might like some adorable ghoulish inspiration.

I had some much fun making this card with some cute details like the glittered tombstones I made using E-Z Squares® Refillable Dispenser and the glittered border made with a little help of the Dual Tip Glue Pen.

Cute Halloween Ghosts Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Cute Halloween Ghosts Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Cute Halloween Ghosts Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Cute Halloween Ghosts Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

This simple technique is called Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside. Taking our adhesive from beneath layers to shine as an accent/embellishment.

Cute Halloween Ghosts Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Let’s add the fences. The E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser was used because I can simply run it over the back of the fence die cut and it will hit the design – no stringy residue.

Lift up and adhere the tombstone and ghost die cuts with 3D Foam Squares Black Small Size.

Cute Halloween Ghosts Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Customize Card 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.

Adhere the purple card panel to the orange panel with the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser. Next, adhere to a white folded card base using the same adhesive.

Glittering Touch

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.

Cute Halloween Ghosts Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Punch out a sentiment on my label maker and adhere to the card. Voila…your cute Halloween ghosts card is ready!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and wish you happy crafting!

Fall Décor Makeover

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.

Fall Decor Makeover by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I used Extreme Double-Sided Tape and Mini Adhesive Dots to add copper glitter and colorful pompoms to a tabletop resin word. In less than 30 minutes I added a fun pop of color to my home!

Store-Bought Fall Décor Makeover

Fall Decor Makeover by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Fall Decor Makeover by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To begin, I applied Extreme Double-Sided Tape to the front face of each letter.

Fall Decor Makeover by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Next, I removed the top liner from the tape and sprinkled on copper glitter.

Fall Decor Makeover by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Mixed Media Happy Fall Tag

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.

Mixed Media Happy Fall Tag by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Happy Fall Tag Basics

Die-cut the tag base from heavy Kraft cardstock and a script patterned paper. Secure the patterned paper over the tag using E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.

Apply Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch to the back of a dark patterned paper and trim to fit the tag front. Then die-cut it with an open honeycomb pattern.

Adding Color

On the honeycomb paper, use a combination of Distress Oxide inks in Ground Espresso and Crackling Campfire to apply directly to the paper. Then rub to blend along the solid edge of the paper.

Lastly, stamp with a grid pattern and skeleton leaves pattern, using Distress Archival Ground Espresso.

To attach it to the tag, simply peel adhesive liner from the back and press in place. Rub more ink into the open honeycomb and edges of the tag with a foam applicator.

Mixed Media Happy Fall Tag by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Happy Fall Sentiment

For the letters, Fall first apply a sheet from the 3D Foam Creative Sheets Small Black on the back of black cardstock before die-cutting the letters.

Mixed Media Happy Fall Tag by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Leaves Detail

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.

Mixed Media Happy Fall Tag by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Butterfly Detail

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.

Mixed Media Happy Fall Tag by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Tag Assembly

To assemble the tag, remove the adhesive liner from the letters and pressed in place at bottom of the tag. Pop up the Happy sentiment with 3D Foam Squares Black Mix. Lift up and adhere each leaf with 3D Foam Squares Black Mix

Butterfly has a single layer of 3D Foam Squares Black Mix under its body. Each wing has two 3D Foam Squares Black Mix stacked together for a little more dimension.

Color the three strands of hemp cord with Crackling Campfire and Ground Espresso inks. Loop them through the tag hole.

Checkered Pattern Love Card

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.

Checkered Pattern Love Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Checkered Pattern

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.

Checkered Pattern Love Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Now, take Creative Photo Corners Black and add them across the top and bottom, off-set from the Creative Photo Corners White. This will give that classic checkered background.

Checkered Pattern Love Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Repeat this so that you have two rows of Creative Photo Corners White and two rows of Creative Photo Corners Black on the top and the bottom.

Add the foam sticker word to a strip of black cardstock and mat that in white cardstock using the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser. Then the matted sentiment is added to the card using 3D Foam Squares White Regular Size.

Checkered Pattern Love Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Mat the checkered background in white cardstock and then gold cardstock. Then adhere to a white card base using the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser.

Checkered Pattern Love Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I love the textured checked background the Creative Photo Corners create.

Little Boy Scrapbook Layout

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!

Little Boy Scrapbook Layout by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

You can see the subtle texture that the E-Z Squares add in this shot. Additionally, you can see how I used the 3D Foam Squares Small to pop up my bigger stars.

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!

Halloween Cards Made Simple

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.

Halloween Cards Made Simple by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Halloween Cards Made Simple by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Halloween Cards Made Simple by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Then adhere your images to your card with Crafty Foam Tape. If your images are small, try using 3D Foam Strips instead as they are a bit thinner.

Halloween Cards Made Simple by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Halloween Cards Made Simple by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Thinking of You Circle Frame Card

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!

Thinking of You Circle Frame Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Use a heating tool to melt the powder. Yes…the E-Z Squares are heat resistant! This technique is called Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside.

The Card Panel

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.

Fold a square card from white cardstock and adhere the circle frame card panel on top with the E-Z Squares® Refillable Dispenser.

Double Tail Bow

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!

Embellishing Touches

Adhere the double tail bow to the circle frame with Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4in. Lift and add the sentiment using 3D Foam Squares White Mix to the circle. Finally, use the Dual Tip Glue Pen to adhere clusters of flowers, stamens, and leaves around the bow.

Mixed Media Background with Adhesive

Hi, Connie here with a really cool mixed media background using the E-Z Squares Refillable Dispenser. You’re going to love this!! Let me show you how cool this is!

Mixed Media Background with Adhesive by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Mixed Media Background Steps

Mixed Media Background with Adhesive by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
  1. On an already inked mixed media cardstock (heavy cardstock is fine too), use a ruler or a long acrylic stamping block as a guide to applying lines of E-Z Squares Refillable Dispenser.
  2. As you can see, the lines aren’t straight and are random.
  3. Using color mediums such as Panpastels Brown /Black, rub the color over the E-Z Squares. Then outline the squares with a fine line marker.
  4. Stamp images to the background. I used leaf branches. Color them using Distress Oxide ink.

5. Double mat with two colors of cardstock and adhere to the card front with the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser.

6. Apply the Crafty Foam Tape 108′ to the back of the card panel.

7. The crafty foam tape was added around the edges and one strip in the middle. This helps to adhere a warped panel straight on the card base.

8. Using the 3D Foam Squares White Small Size, place the stamped birds and embossed sentiment to the card front.

Here are some close-up images of the finished card.
