A Good Time Mixed Media Card

Hi, Connie here with a fun Good Time Mixed Media Card using 3D Foam Adhesives for the cut out die cuts. Dimension looks great on the card front! Makes everything pop!!

A Good Time Mixed Media Card by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Good Time Mixed Media Background

To start this Good Time Mixed Media Card, you first need to create a background with rubber stamps, stencils, and your favorite ink. It is hard to mess this part up, just keep adding stamps (eclectic designs) until you smile!!!

A Good Time Mixed Media Card by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I use Distress Oxide for my card backgrounds. Next stamp out your focal image and the small parts. In my case, it would be the elephant, hat, tie scooter, and glasses. Add color to the images and trim out.

A Good Time Mixed Media Card by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Using the Dual Tip Glue Pen, adhere the elephant to the card front. Then add the tie with 3D Foam Squares Micro White. The elephant is sitting on the scooter with 3D Foam Circle White Mix, and the hat is secured on top with 3D Foam Squares White Mix. Lastly, I used Tim Holt’s Tiny Attacher to secure the glasses to the tip of the elephant’s trunk.

Layer the card front to a black cardstock mat with the Crafty Foam Tape 108′ Black. To complete the mixed media card, adhere to a cardstock base using the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser. Add the sentiment using the 3D Foam Strips.

Luck o’ the Irish Gift Tag

Hi, Lara here today! This is my first project for the team. I wanted to share this Luck o’ the Irish Gift Tag for St. Patrick’s Day with a little bit of my hand lettering thrown in for a little extra luck! I am part Irish on my mother’s side of the family so St. Patrick’s Day was always celebrated in our home. We always had to wear green (except my mom who has green eyes) and had the whole Irish meal of boiled potatoes, cabbage, and corned beef brisket.

Luck o' the Irish Gift Tag by Lara Scott for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Luck o’ the Irish Gift Tag Card

Cut a 6.25″ tall x 6″ wide tag base, fold it in half, and then trim off the two corners. Then cut the front so it forms a gift tag that is also a card. Next, add a piece of 2.75 x 5.5″ green cardstock and adhere it with the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser. Layer a piece of 2.25 x 5″ gold glitter paper and a piece of 2 x 4.75″ white cardstock. The tag card base is done.

The Finishing Details

I dug into my rather extensive collection of black pens and wrote of Luck o’ the Irish. If you aren’t comfortable with your handwriting, just pencil it in, use stamps, or even print it out on the computer.

Luck o' the Irish Gift Tag by Lara Scott for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cut off the button shanks off. I have loved Buttons Galore products since I was first introduced to them more than a decade ago and these glitter ones are fabulous! Sorry, I am sort of like a ferret since I like shiny things.

To adhere the buttons, I used the Adhesive Dots 3D and shaped them to tuck behind the buttons. I punch a hole on top of the tag and thread through some green embroidery floss and white seam binding ribbon to complete the tag.

Layered Arches Flower Card

Hi, Judy here today! I’ve put together a Layered Arches Flower card that features an easy textured background made with crumpled tissue paper. The layered arches have dimension created with 3D Foam Strips and frame the verse. The watercolored flower nestles into the corner of the arches and also has dimension with shaped flower petals and leaves held in place with 3D Foam Circles White Mix.

Layered Arches Flower Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Card Texture

Cut or tear a piece of white tissue paper about 7 x 9 inches. Crumple into a ball, uncrumple and repeat. Unfold tissue and flatten it slightly but leave wrinkles in it. Fold 9.5 x 6.5-inch white cardstock to form a 4.75 x 6.5-inch card.

Layered Arches Flower Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Peel back the liner from Adhesive Sheets 6 x 12in., place the folded card face down, and replace the liner over the card. Turn over the adhesive sheet with the card and rub well to transfer the adhesive. Peel back the liner, lift the card from the adhesive, and place it on the work surface with the adhesive side up.

Layered Arches Flower Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place wrinkled tissue on it, press it onto the adhesive, and smooth over the card. The photo shows tissue pressed into adhesive at the top and not fully flattened towards the bottom.

Layered Arches Flower Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To remove excess tissue, dip a small paint brush in water, brush on tissue along one edge of the card, and tear tissue away. Repeat along all edges of the card.

Prepare Arch Pieces

Layered Arches Flower Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

From Kraft cardstock, cut large arched pieces with arch die (#8) and #15 (largest die). Also, cut smaller arch pieces with arch dies #10 and #12. Use arch die #13 to cut painted graph paper.

Stamp on Arch Pieces

Layered Arches Flower Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Use a foam applicator with Distress Vintage Photo ink to rub ink over both arch pieces. Randomly stamp script across both arch pieces with Distress Archival Ground Espresso ink.

Stamp Verse

Temporarily place a large arch piece over painted paper and use a pencil to trace the top of the arch.

Layered Arches Flower Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Use pencil line as a reference to stamp verse with Archival Black Soot ink and then erase pencil line.

Assemble Arch

Layered Arches Flower Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

On the back of the small arch piece, apply 3D Foam Strips. Cut as needed to go around the curve of the arch. Peel liners and press in place centered on the large arch.

Layered Arches Flower Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

On the back of the large arch piece, place 3D Foam Strips along the opening and outer edges, peel liners around the opening, and fasten the painted paper.

Peel liners from around the outer edges, apply adhesive to the center back of the painted paper with E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser, and attach to the card front.

Layered Arches Flower Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Attch Flower and Leaves

Layered Arches Flower Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place large 3D Foam Circles White Mix on the back of the flower center and petals. Layer two 3D Foam Circles as needed on petals. Peel the liner from the center of the flower and position it on the card. Lift petals to remove liners and press petals in place. Add more 3D Foam Circles to petals as needed, peel liners, and press petals in place.

Colorful Happy Scrapbook Layout

Hi Friends, Erica here today to share a Colorful Happy Scrapbook Layout using products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Bella Blvd!

Colorful Happy Scrapbook Layout by Erica Thompson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Colorful Happy Scrapbook Layout Ideas

There were a ton of thin strips left over from a previous project that I just could not toss out. I thought of a few creative ways to use them on projects and I want to share a quick and easy one with you today! I started with a piece of 11 x 11″ white textured cardstock and matted it onto a black patterned paper.

Colorful Happy Scrapbook Layout by Erica Thompson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Using my E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser, I apply it to the center back of each patterned paper strip. This adhesive is perfect as the double-sided tape is 1/8″ wide. Once all the strips of pattern paper were adhered, I matted my photo onto some pattern paper using the E-Z Runner® Grand Permanent Dots and then popped the photo up with Crafty Foam Tape 108ft in Black.

Colorful Happy Scrapbook Layout by Erica Thompson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Embellish the Happy Colorful Scrapbook Layout

Now that my main design elements are down it is time to add some fun and colorful embellishments along with my title. I used pieces from the Bella Blvd Birthday Bash collection along with a few puffy stickers from the Bella Besties. To adhere the embellishments down I used some of the 3D Foam Squares Mix in White and my favorite Dual Tip Glue Pen.

St Patrick’s Day Card

Hello crafty friends! Tracy here, and today I have a fun little St Patrick’s Day Card to share. This card features some fabulous decorative buttons from Button’s Galore & More and loads of my favourite color, green!

St Patrick's Day Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Let’s Get Started!

First I cut a white cardstock card base to 10 x 5″, folded in half. I also cut a piece of the darker green cardstock to 4.75″ square. This is also when I cut the button shanks off the back of my decorative buttons.

St Patrick's Day Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adhere the green cardstock to the white cardstock base of the St Patrick’s Day Card using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser. Then I cut 2 light green, and 2 dark green squares that are 2″. I cut 2 gold and 2 light green squares that are 2.25″. Adhere these squares together and then to the card base using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.

St Patrick's Day Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adhere the decorative buttons to the middle of each square using Adhesive Dots Large Repositionable. Sometimes I will double up the Adhesive Dots Large Repositionable, which will often help secure bulkier items in place.

St Patrick's Day Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Add the letter stickers to a strip of black cardstock. Flag the ends, and then mat in gold cardstock using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser. This will make the sentiment for this St Patrick’s Day Card POP!

St Patrick's Day Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Add the matted sentiment to the middle of the card front using 3D Foam Squares White Mix. I then added green gems to either side. This is the final green touch to this St Patrick’s Day Card.

Simple Birthday Pocket Card

Hi, Emily here today! I’m very excited to be sharing a Simple Happy Birthday Pocket Card with you all. This pocket is on the front of your card, so it’s the first thing the recipient sees!

Simple Birthday Pocket Card by Emily Moore for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Birthday Pocket Card Base

First, I started with two pieces of patterned paper: one a little more busy (for my pocket) and the other a little more tame (for my background). I cut these out with my A2 Liner Die, so they’d both be the same size.

Simple Birthday Pocket Card by Emily Moore for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Create the Pocket Feature

From there, I took the floral paper and trimmed the long side down to 4 inches, so it would become a 4 x 4 square. Next, I cut this diagonally, to make 2 triangles.

Simple Birthday Pocket Card by Emily Moore for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

This will form our pocket! Now, time for the adhesive! It’s important to use strong adhesive when putting the pocket together, so I of course chose the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4in. to put my pocket together. Put it on the bottom part of the back side of one of your triangles to adhere them together.

Simple Birthday Pocket Card by Emily Moore for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I like to make sure my pocket is the length of my card, it gives me enough space to slip some things inside my pocket! Once that was complete, I adhered my card panel to the front of my card using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.

Simple Birthday Pocket Card by Emily Moore for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Then, I grabbed the E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser, and used that along the edges of my pockets to adhere it to the front of my card. The thinness of this tape allows you to be able to get the most room out of your pocket!

Simple Birthday Pocket Card by Emily Moore for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Embellishing the Birthday Pocket Card

For a fun decorative touch, I added a piece of ephemera, using the 3D Foam Squares White Mix on the bottom part of my pocket, leaving the top portion still open. How cute is that?!

Simple Birthday Pocket Card by Emily Moore for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Pocket cards are great for slipping something extra special into the card, like a gift card holder! Or even a little notecard with something special written on it. You decide! Let me know if you try out this fun way to make your own pocket!

Be Different Art Journal Page

Hi, Connie here with a Be Different Art Journal Page using the 3D Foam adhesives for that wonderful dimension it gives a die cut or stamped image. I’m creating with a combination of inks, stamps, and stencils for a mixed media look. The elements on the page were secured with a variety of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products 🙂

Be Different Art Journal Page by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To start the project there is some pre-work that will make the page come together with no stress:):)

Be Different Art Journal Page Prep

Be Different Art Journal Page by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
  • 1. Using Distress Oxide inks, create a background mix. To achieve this, I used four coordinating colors, watered down, and randomly added to the page. Stamps and stencils were combined using Archival, for stamping, and Distress Oxide inks for stenciling.
    2. The focal images, letters, and word strips were stamped with Distress Oxide inks. Then trimmed out.

Assembling the Art Journal Page

Glittered Butterfly Card

Hi everyone, Yvonne here! With Spring in mind, I made a spring-themed Glittered Butterfly Card. This card is super easy to create so also suitable for beginner cardmakers! 

Glittered Butterfly Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adding a 3D effect has never been more simple than simply using 3D Foam Butterflies. Wanna join me in creating the card? Let’s get started!

Glittered Butterfly Card Panel

To create the top card panel for the Glittered Butterfly Card, nest two rectangular cutting dies, and die-cut from white cardstock.

Glittered Butterfly Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Then leave the cut paper inside the die and color the edges with an ink blending tool and a pink ink pad.

Glittered Butterfly Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Now remove the dies and see a gorgeous pink coloring bordering around your card panel.

Glittered Butterfly Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside with 3D Foam Butterflies and Glitter

Now it’s time to add the dimension to the card.  First, adhere 3D Foam Butterflies (and dragonflies) onto the inked card panel. By using 3D Foam Butterflies you create lovely dimensional embellishments. Carefully remove the top liner and adhere pearls onto the sticky foam butterflies and dragonflies. Next, sprinkle pink glitter all over, rub the glitter in to secure, and then tap off any excess.

Glittered Butterfly Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Create the Card Base

Mat the card panel onto a pink panel with the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser. Add the layered panel to a white card base. And… voilá your Glittered Butterfly Card is ready! Yep..it’s that simple. Wishing you happy crafting!

Make Your Heart Sing Tag

Hi, Judy here today! When I was working on this project, I was struggling with an idea. As I sat at my worktable, I started looking through a dish of bits and pieces and I found a die-cut heart and a verse that inspired me to make this vintage-looking tag.

Make Your Heart Sing Tag by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Layer and Ink Tag Background

The base is a #8 manilla tag. I pressed some adhesive from Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6in. along the left side and placed pieces of a torn old book page on it leaving gaps between pieces.

Over the exposed adhesive areas, I sprinkled Distress Glazes, heat embossed them with a heat tool. Repeat until I like the look of it.

The entire tag is colored with various Distress inks rubbed over it. Script and foliage are stamped on the tag with black permanent ink.

Create the Heart Focal Point

These hearts are from my stash: a foil heart cut from foil-covered cardstock and a smaller heart cut from fabric-covered cardstock. Fabric-covered cardstock was made by attaching the fabric to the cardstock using Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6in. Foil-covered cardstock is made with aluminum foil tape from the hardware store taped on before die cutting.

By rubbing Distress Crayon and Distress Archival Black Soot ink onto the edges of the foil heart, it gets a more vintage look. Rub Distress Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain inks on the fabric heart for an “old” look. Use the Dual Tip Glue Pen to secure the fabric heart over the foil heart.

Create the Verse

To make the verse pieces, stamp the verse on white cardstock and cut it apart into separate pieces. Color each verse piece with Distress inks and small amounts of Distress Vintage Photo Glaze heat embossed on them.

Lift with 3D Foam Strips = Perfect!

Apply strips of 3D Foam Strips Black to the back of all verse pieces. It has the perfect width so lifting and attaching sentiment strips are so easy!

On the back of the heart, add 3D Foam Squares Black Regular to the center part to fill in the raised part of the heart. Add 3D Foam Strips Black around the edges of the heart.

Embellish and Secure the Lace

To make the lace look old, rub with Distress Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain inks, mist with water, and roll in a ball to spread ink through the lace, allow to dry or dry with a heat tool. Apply Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8in. along the top edge of the lace.

Assemble Pieces on Tag

Peel the liner from the lace edge and adhere across the tag and trim ends. Next, peel the liners from the heart, and attach it over the lace. Make sure to press well to secure. Arrange the verse pieces, peel the liners from each piece, and place them on the tag.

Near the bottom edge of the tag, place a strip of Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8in. and wrap ends about 0.5 inches to the back of the tag. Remove the liner and place two strands of cord over the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8in., press in place, wrap ends to the back of the tag, and trim excess.

Finish with a Bow and Ties

Tie a piece of cord into a small bow. Place Adhesive Dots Micro on the back of the bow knot, peel the liner, and place the bow on the heart.

Make Your Heart Sing Tag by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Use Distress ink to “age” several pieces of torn fabric and cord. Lastly, loop through the tag hole…and done!

Galentine’s Day Card

Hello crafty friends! Tracy here, and today I thought I would share a little Valentine’s Day-inspired creation. Valentine’s Day isn’t just for couples. It’s time we celebrate the love we have for everyone in our lives. So today I am sharing a Galentine’s Day Card. Tell your friends you love them this year. Here are all of the details.

Galentine's Day Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Let’s Get Crafty

Firstly, I inked up my Happy Valentine’s Day sentiment and covered the V with a small piece of washi tape. Then stamped it on white cardstock. Add the glitter letter G to the sentiment completing the Galentine’s Day Card phrase. Next I die cut out the sentiment, a red cardstock mat and a pink cardstock decorative mat. Create a white cardstock card base.

Galentine's Day Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cut a piece of orange cardstock and the patterned paper base. Adhere the patterned paper base to the white cardstock card base using E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser. Add the orange cardstock piece to the Galentine’s Day Card using Creative Photo Corners White. Adhere the die cut layers together using the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser and set aside for now.

Galentine's Day Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Add the layered die cut piece to the card using Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix. I also added the strawberry cardstock sticker with Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix.

Galentine's Day Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To add a little sparkle to the Galentine’s Day Card I attached red gems to the die cut piece. I had a coordinating envelope for the card and added a cardstock sticker to the back of it.
