Hello Baby Album

Whenever I see something that comes pre-assembled I automatically assume it’s going to be really easy to put together. And while that may be true at times, it doesn’t mean you can skimp on supplies while putting it together. Christine joining you today to show you how adding some solid adhesives to a pre-assembled Hello Baby Album can help it stand the test of time.

Hello Baby Album by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Although this flip album is super unique and all ready to roll, it still needs pictures, stickers, and other elements added to it. Because it is an album that has no page protectors, I know it will be easy for things to be damaged and pulled up as it is looked at. This is where I decided to employ the strength and longevity of adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adhesive Dots are so strong and the perfect choice for anything of weight or dimension. Although these bows already had adhesive on them, I added the Adhesive Dots to ensure that they would hold tight.

I also used the Adhesive Dots on the 3D Sticker in the corner here and underneath the Baby Sticker Banner. Although the banner didn’t need the hold that Adhesive Dots provide, I knew they needed extra hold and the size was right for the Micro Dots that I already had out.

I used the E-Z Squares Refillable Dispenser to attach all of my photos. It’s perfect for a quick roll in each corner and then will hold tight.

Finally, I used my E-Z Runner Grand to secure pieces like the chipboard balloons pictured here. It is so strong and works for a variety of things besides just adding paper to paper ;).

With the holidays here, I know many of us will be putting together Mini Albums and other crafts for presents. Be sure to use your Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to ensure they will hold together and last a lifetime!

Foiled Snowflake + Snowmen Holiday Card

Hi Crafty Friends, Meghan Kinnehan here again featuring a festive Foiled Snowflake Holiday Card! I am in LOVE with the 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit and its foil selection inside! Today, I created a fun slimline snowman card with a unique twist on the snowflakes by making them red.

Foiled Snowflake + Snowmen Holiday Card by Meghan Kennihan for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Foiled Snowflake Steps

Step 1: Pick out the foam shape and foil color from the 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit that you want to use. For this card, I chose the snowflakes and red foil.

Foiled Snowflake + Snowmen Holiday Card by Meghan Kennihan for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Step 2: Arrange your foam pieces on your card base, peeling off
just the bottom adhesive to adhere to your card.

Foiled Snowflake + Snowmen Holiday Card by Meghan Kennihan for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Step 3: Peel off the top layer of the foam snowflake to expose the adhesive and lay your foil on the top, color side UP. Rub the foil to transfer the color on the adhesive with your fingers.

Foiled Snowflake + Snowmen Holiday Card by Meghan Kennihan for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Step 4: Peel off the foil slowly making sure all the adhesive is covered in foil. If you missed a spot on your foiled snowflake, simply put the foil back over that spot and rub a little more.

Foiled Snowflake + Snowmen Holiday Card by Meghan Kennihan for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Step 5: Repeat until you foiled all the snowflake embellishments.

Foiled Snowflake + Snowmen Holiday Card by Meghan Kennihan for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Sentiment + Snowmen

Step 6: For the sentiment stripes, I used the Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6-inch. Peel the yellow top liner back and place your paper on the adhesive. Next, put the yellow liner back over and rub it down.

Step 7: Pick your craft die and run it through your die-cutting machine.

Foiled Snowflake + Snowmen Holiday Card by Meghan Kennihan for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Step 8: Peel both liners off and adhere the die cut piece to your card. Now you have a Foiled Snowflake + Snowmen Holiday Slimline Card!

Fabric Christmas Tree Tags

Hi, everyone! Looking for a fun way to spruce up your holiday gifts? Teri here, and I’ve got a fun way to make Christmas tags with fabric scraps!

Fabric Christmas Tree Tags by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L with text

The Christmas trees on these tags are so easy to make. All you need are fabric scraps, some wire and a few basic crafting supplies!

Making a Fabric Christmas Tree

Fabric Christmas Tree Tags by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Start by cutting several tags from cardstock. I used a die to cut my tags but it’s easy to make your own tag without one. Cut a rectangle from cardstock and then snip off the top corners at an angle. Add a hole, and you’ll have a tag! Set your tags aside.

Take a piece of wire and tie and knot three skinny strips of fabric onto it. Trim the wire and fabric so you have something that resembles a primitive Christmas tree.

Fabric Christmas Tree Tags by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place an Adhesive Line onto your tag. Set your tree onto it. You’ll want the line to fall right below the middle fabric strip. Then add two more lines under the fabric strip!

Fabric Christmas Tree Tags by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
Fabric Christmas Tree Tags by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Add a 3D Foam Star to the top of your tree. Cover it with flock or glitter. Complete your tag by stamping (or handwriting) a sentiment on a strip of cardstock and tying it onto your tag with jute.

Fabric Christmas Tree Tags by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

A Snowy Fabric Christmas Tree Tag

Kick your tag’s design up a notch by adding some snow to it.

Fabric Christmas Tree Tags by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Simply place a strip of Crafty Foam Tape at the bottom of the tag and cover it with glitter or flock. You could even use foil!

Changing Up the Design with Colors and Notions

Don’t feel like you have to be traditional with your Christmas trees either! Try using fabric scraps that are in colors other than green! Red and white fabric was used here!

Fabric Christmas Tree Tags by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Another way to change the design is to use pompoms to mimic the look of snow. Don’t have any pompoms? Use buttons! Jute is also a nice way to create “ground” for the tree.

Simple Dimensional Border Layout

Hello crafty friends! Tracy here, and today I have a pretty little layout to share featuring a Simple Dimensional Border. Here are all of the details.

Simple Dimensional Border Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Dimensional Border in the Making

Cut the wood patterned paper and the confetti patterned paper to 6.5×12. Take the wood pattern and cut the wood sections apart using scissors keeping them in order. Adhere the separate wood pieces to the confetti pattern using 3D Foam Squares White Mix. Space the pieces out leaving a good bit of the confetti pattern showing between each wood piece. Continue down to the bottom of the strip to create this Simple Dimensional Border.

Simple Dimensional Border Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Mat the Simple Dimensional Border with the striped patterned paper. Then adhere to the black polka dot patterned paper using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.

Loving This Cluster

I created a cluster of ephemera in the top left hand corner of the layout using a combination of 3D Foam Squares White Mix and Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix. This allows you to get SO much dimension between layers, without adding too much thickness to your projects.

Simple Dimensional Border Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The Little Details

Mat the 4×6 photo in white cardstock using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser. Then adhere to the layout using Crafty Foam Tape White, using 1 layer over the Simple Dimensional Border and 2 layers on the background. Add the ephemera flower and tab to the left of the matted photo using Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix. Then add the “Happy” heart using 3D Foam Squares White Mix.

Simple Dimensional Border Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

My final touch is to add the 3D flowers using Adhesive Dots Medium and a few more enamel dots. This layout featuring the Simple Dimensional Border is complete.

Inky Wonderful Christmas Card

Hi, Connie here with a Christmas card using a wonderful inky background to highlight the holiday die cut shapes on the card front. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L works so well securing all of the small parts. They have you covered – no part is too small for adhesive.

Inky Wonderful Christmas Card Tutorial by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Inky Wonderful Christmas Card Supplies

Inky Wonderful Christmas Card Tutorial by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

First decide on patterned papers, cardstock, and card design. Then die-cut the shapes you will need to complete the card.

Inky Fun Background

Inky Wonderful Christmas Card Tutorial by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

On a card panel, start creating a background for the Christmas Tree scene. I used a combination of Distress Oxide inks to color a warm golden tone. It’s such a fun technique to add a mixed media backdrop. Don’t forget to splatter a little water!

Creating the Scene

Inky Wonderful Christmas Card Tutorial by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
  1. Using the tree stencil in the craft die set, lay it over the coordinating shape, and add snow in just the right places.
  2. For the gift boxes, add the gift bows with the Dual Tip Glue Pen.
  3. I used 3D Foam Circles White Mix to add dimension to the gifts.
  4. Stamp the sentiment on white cardstock and cut into strips. Use 3D Foam Strips to adhere “wonderful” to overlap and popped up.

The Card Panels

Inky Wonderful Christmas Card Tutorial by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

When matting the inky card front, I used Crafty Foam Tape 108′ and adhered it to an off white cardstock panel.

Next, I used E-Z Runner Grand Permanent White Dispenser to attach the layered card panel to a folded card base. Now my Inky Wonderful Christmas Card is ready to be mailed!

Merry Christmas Wreath Card

Hi everyone, Yvonne here with some Christmas inspiration. With Christmas coming up next month I started making my Christmas cards. I know this Merry Christmas Wreath Card may look complicated but with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products, it’s much easier to create than you might think. Let me show you how in my photo tutorial.

Merry Christmas Wreath Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Christmas Wreath Panel Steps

The top card panel for this card was embossed with a 3D brick embossing folder. Place a piece of white cardstock between the embossing folder and run the embossing sandwich through your die-cutting and embossing machine. Then trim the edges to the desired size by using a paper trimmer.

To highlight the embossed design, I used an ink blending tool to softly dab and brush a combination of brown and grey inks.

Merry Christmas Wreath Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Card Panel Embellishing Details

Adhere the embossed panel onto a slightly larger brown card panel and then attach the layered panel to a white card base using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.

Next die-cut and emboss a scalloped circle from gold cardstock and a slightly smaller white circle from white cardstock. Layer the two die cut shapes with 3D Foam Squares White Mix. Then adhere them to the card base with more foam squares.

Merry Christmas Wreath Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Making the Christmas Wreath

Let’s make the Christmas wreath! First, die-cut several berry branches from brown cardstock. Then add small drops of glue using the Dual Tip Glue Pen onto the little berries shapes.

Merry Christmas Wreath Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Gently press down the berries into red glitter and tap off any excess.

Merry Christmas Wreath Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Set aside to dry. Repeat this step with the other berry branches.

Merry Christmas Wreath Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

When the glittered berries dry, adhere the branches around the edge of the white circle shape on the card base.

Adhere mulberry holly leaves between the white and golden die-cut circles using the Dual Tip Glue Pen to give color and layer to the wreath.

Merry Christmas Wreath Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Designer’s Tip: Use tweezers for the precise placement of the leaves.

The Finishing Touches

For the sentiment, I used a sentiment sticker which I double matted with white and gold cardstock using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser. Lastly, I adhered it to the Christmas wreath using 3D Foam Squares White Mix in the middle of the wreath.

Merry Christmas Wreath Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

For the final touch, I made a red satin bow and adhered it to the top of the Christmas wreath using Adhesive Dots Large.

Voila…your Christmas Wreath card is ready. I bet it was easier than you thought!

Wishing you happy (Christmas) crafting,

Poster Calendar Holiday Layout

Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a holiday scrapbook layout. I switched up my usual layout size from 12×12 to 11×14 by using a gorgeous Linnea poster calendar as the base. The expanded size was fun to embellish with some of my favorite adhesive techniques.

Poster Calendar Holiday Layout by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

All the pretty trees on this calendar poster had me thinking of my own decorated Christmas tree. The 2018 holiday season was extra special because it was the first year we celebrated the holiday in our new home.

Adhesive Techniques for Holiday Crafting

Poster Calendar Holiday Layout by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Chipboard is a great way to add texture and dimension to a project. My go-to adhesive for chipboard, especially script or intricate designs with lots of curves, is the E-Z Runner Petite Permanent Dots Dispenser. A quick swipe of this runner over chipboard applies a layer of adhesive dots. Don’t let the size of these dots deter you from using them on large chipboard pieces. The adhesive dots are small but extremely strong!

Poster Calendar Holiday Layout by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I used Adhesive Dots Medium to secure the chipboard letter tiles across the top of the poster calendar. The 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit with Foil is themed for Winter and includes pre-cut 3D Foam shapes of trees, stars, snowflakes, and other Christmas designs, with 5 sheets of Metallic Transfer Foil. I used several different sizes of 3D foam circles and the metallic transfer foil in several colors to add shimmery dots around the poster. I added mini gold star sequins to the background using Adhesive Dots Micro.

Finishing Touches

Poster Calendar Holiday Layout by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The gorgeous dimensional bow shown above is a 3D foam design from the Holiday Embellishment Kit that I covered with red metallic transfer foil. I used Crafty Foam Tape to attach the pinecone, a more heavy embellishment, and my photo to the poster. Creative Photo Corners in Gold were the perfect finishing touch to add a bit of sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to save old calendar pages to use in your crafting.

Foil + Inky Leaves Card Technique

Hello crafty friends! Judy here today. As I put together this Thanksgiving card, the wind was whipping leaves everywhere. Brown crispy leaves not nearly so pretty as the foil + inky leaves on this card!

The foiled leaves are made with aluminum foil from my kitchen! Can you believe it? Let me show you how.

Foil + Inky Leaves Technique

Attach Adhesive Sheets 6×12 inch to the back of a 6 x 12-inch Kraft cardstock. I chose Kraft because I have a lot of it. Black cardstock is also a good choice.

Foil + Inky Leaves Card Technique by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Remove the liner and place the adhesive side down on aluminum foil. I find it easier to keep foil smooth this way.

Foil + Inky Leaves Card Technique by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Next, add various colors of alcohol inks and blend them with a felt blending tool. Mist rubbing alcohol over the inks for a mottled pattern. Repeat these steps until you get your desired color.

Foil + Inky Leaves Card Technique by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Use a die-cut machine and leaf dies to die cut three different leaf shapes with the foiled paper. With the shape still in the die, trace the vein lines with a black permanent marker using the die as a stencil.

Foil + Inky Leaves Card Technique by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Card Panel Details

Ink grid design stamp with Fossilized Amber Oxide ink. Stamp on the 1.125 x 5.5-inch piece blue calypso cardstock strip. Re-ink stamp and stamp again to continue pattern over the entire piece. Apply Monarch ink to craze stamp. Stamp over grid pattern.

Foil + Inky Leaves Card Technique by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Form into a 4.25 x 5.5-inch card base with a buff-color cardstock. For a card panel, cut a light brown paper to 4.25 x 5.5 inches. My light brown paper was not heavy enough to make the card but I wanted to use this color. Use E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser to secure the light brown paper to the card front.

Foil + Inky Leaves Card Technique by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Card Front Embellishing

Attach the stamped strip near the left edge using E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser. Cut about a narrow strip of 0.125-inch wide x 5.5-inches long from the alcohol inked foil paper.

Use E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser to apply adhesive to the back of the strip. Adhere to the card panel near the edge of the stamped blue calypso border.

Foil + Inky Leaves Card Technique by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place Adhesive Squares on the back of leaves. I used 3D Foam Squares Black Mix on the maple and solid leaf (not sure what kind it is!) and Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix on the oak leaf. Arrange and attach the leaves to the card.

Foil + Inky Leaves Card Technique by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Stamp the sentiment with Monarch ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.

Ornate Christmas Card

Hello crafty friends! Tracy here, and today I am sharing a pretty little ornate Christmas card, and all of the fabulous stickiness that made it happen. Here are the details.

Ornate Christmas Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Tips + Tricks That Sticks

Anytime that I create an ornate Christmas card or project that may carry some weight, I turn to my trusty E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser. This will make sure that all of my tricky layers will stay put.

The top patterned paper layer is added to the card using Crafty Foam Tape White for a little extra dimension between layers. Then I added the chipboard frame and buttons using Adhesive Dots Micro.

Ornate Christmas Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

My Adhesive Dots Micro came in handy for attaching the silk ribbon bow also. I upgraded to the Adhesive Dots Medium when adding the dimensional flowers.

Ornate Christmas Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I used Crafty Foam Tape White again to add the chipboard sticker sentiment to my ornate Christmas card. The “Joy & Cheer” ephemera piece is added to the top tag using Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix.

Ornate Christmas Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adding dimension and texture to a project is easy. It’s making that stick last is what’s tricky. Hope these tips help with your next Ornate Christmas Card project.

Be The Change Card Tutorial

Have you ever had a sticker that was just so cool you had to make a card with it? Be The Change card is one of those cool cards! Christine joining you today with an encouraging card with a technique using the Creative Photo Corners!

Be the Change Card Tutorial by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

If this technique looks familiar, it’s because you’ve seen me do it a couple of times before! I have used it on a scrapbook layout and. a home decor piece. But this is the first time that I have done it on a card! Let’s dive into how it came together!

Be the Change Card Background Technique

Be the Change Card Tutorial by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

For today’s card, I used the Creative Photo Corners in Gold.

Be the Change Card Tutorial by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Draw a circle on your card. It will be covered up, so don’t worry about erasing anything. Use your Creative Photo Corners to outline the circle. You will need to overlap a little.

Be the Change Card Tutorial by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Keep going until you finish a full circle. Keep building up the layers.

Be the Change Card Tutorial by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Eventually, you will end up with a beautiful, golden shape to add texture and dimension to your card background!

The Rest of the Adhesives

To finish off the card I used several different adhesives. The layers are assembled with a combination of Crafty Foam Tape and the E-Z Runner Grand. Adding the stickers was a little trickier because of the background.

Be the Change Card Tutorial by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I added the small details using Small 3D Foam Circles. This gave them some dimension and a strong hold.

Be the Change Card Tutorial by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The big sticker was flat and I was concerned about how well it would hold against the Creative Photo Corners. So I added Adhesive Lines to the back of that to give it a really strong hold.

Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you’ve been inspired to bust out those Creative Photo Corners and try something new!
