Winged Love Card Tutorial

Hi everyone, Yvonne here with a love card, made with the 3D Foam Wings. This gorgeous and intricate Winged Love Card is full of elegance with a vintage touch. I would like to share how I made this romantic card. Please enjoy my tutorial!

Winged Love Card Tutorial by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Winged Love Card Center Piece

Start by die-cutting and embossing an oval patterned panel. With the 3D Foam Wings, to make sure I adhere them on straight and centered on the panel, I drew a line onto the oval with a pencil and a ruler.

Now adhere the 3D Foam Wings in stacked layers onto the panel: first two sets of large wings and then two sets of smaller wings. With each additional layer, remove the liner from the wing below it.

To create an angle in the wings I softly pushed all the ends of the layered wings to adhere to the oval panel. Remove the top layer’s liner and you are ready to embellish the wings with sparkle.

Now sprinkle a lot of white glitter onto 3D Foam Wings and softly rub it into the adhesive on the wings. Remove the excess. A concept called “Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside” – bringing your adhesives from between layers of a project to the outside and create unique embellishments like these wings!

Making the Card Base

Start by making a white rectangle shaped card base with a top fold, and adhere upon a slightly smaller die-cut grey panel using Crafty Power Tape Dispenser 81ft.

Then die-cut/emboss a slightly smaller patterned rectangle panel and leave the die-cut in die-template. Next ink the edges with brown ink and an ink blending tool and then remove the die-template. Now adhere the panel to the card base using the Crafty Power Tape Dispenser 81ft.

Then die-cut a golden intricate oval shape from gold cardstock and adhere to the card base using 3D Foam Squares White Mix and adhere the winged panel on top, also using 3D Foam Squares White Mix to give it a little lift.

Winged Love Card Tutorial by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Embellishing the Card

I decided to add ribbon after having put together all the layers. Add Crafty Power Tape onto the back of two pieces of white satin ribbon. Then remove the liner and carefully tuck a piece of ribbon under the intricate die-cut on each side, and then fold the ends around the card.

To adhere the flowers onto the wings use Adhesive Dots Medium Ultra Thin.

To adhere the stamens use the HomeHobby™ by 3L Dual Tip Glue Pen.

Adhere the satin bow with Crafty Power Tape. To finish, add some self-adhesive pearls and word stickers. And…voila…your Winged Love card is ready.

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

Punny Happy Birthday Flip Card

Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing a super fun and punny birthday flip card. Almost all of my nieces and nephews, both of my parents, and one of my daughters celebrate birthdays during the Summer months. I can never have too many birthday cards on hand. I used an interactive flip design and the fantastic No Pun Intended collection from Photo Play Paper to create this card.

Punny Happy Birthday Flip Card by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3LWhen creating papercrafts that need to hold up to lots of handling, I prefer the Ultra Strong varieties of adhesive.

Building a Flip Card Base

Punny Happy Birthday Flip Card by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L - How to Cut a Flip Card Base from CardstockTo begin, cut a cardstock card base that measures 10 x 5 inches. Then, score the cardstock 3 3/4 inches from the left and 4 3/4 inches from the right side of the cardstock. Next use a pencil to draw a rectangle onto the card base, 1 inch down from the top edge of the card and 1 1/2 inches from both sides of the score line. Draw edges that measure 2 7/8 inches down from the top edge of the rectangle and then back in to both score lines. Then carefully use scissors to cut along the edges of the rectangle shape. Stop the cutting at the score lines. Fold the cardstock forward over the right score line. Finally, fold the cardstock back over the left score line.

Adding Color and Pattern to the Card

Punny Happy Birthday Flip Card by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L - How to Add Patterned Paper to a Flip CardStart by cutting a cardstock mat for patterned paper to fit in a strip along the center of the card. Cut a 2 x 6 inch piece of cardstock at 2 1/2 inches. This cut creates a 2 x 2 1/2 inch and 2 x 3 1/2 inch piece of cardstock to center on either side of the card base.

Next, cut patterned paper to fit inside the cardstock strip along the center of the card. Cut a 2 x 6 inch piece of patterned paper at 2 1/2 inches. This cut creates a 2 x 2 1/2 inch and 2 x 3 1/2 inch piece of patterned paper. Trim about 1/8  inch from each side of the patterned paper pieces and center onto the cardstock strip.

Finally, cut a cardstock squares that measures 2 1/2 x 2 3/4 inches. Secure this square to the center of the flip portion of the card. Next, cut a piece of patterned paper to measure 2 3/4 x 3 7/8 inches and secure it to the inner rectangle space of the card.

Adding Punny Embellishments

The Photo Play Paper No Pun Intended collection is bursting with silly puns and goofy sayings that are sure to tickle anyone’s funny bone. This hilarious collection is super fun to work with!

Punny Happy Birthday Flip Card by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L - How to Adhere Felt Embellishments with 3D Foam SquaresTo play up the birthday theme, attach felt candles to the front of the card using Thin 3D Foam Squares.

TIP: You can cut the 3D Foam Squares (or any of our 3D Foam) in half to fit inside the edges of narrow embellishments.

Punny Happy Birthday Flip Card by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L - Interactive Punny Happy Birthday Flip Card with Cake and CandlesUse a Small Adhesive Dot to attach a vibrant ribbon to the front of the card.

Punny Happy Birthday Flip Card by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L - Inside of Card

Secure a cake die-cut to the inside of the card. 3D Foam Circles are great for embellishments with curved edges. The sentiment under the cake reads, “You want a piece of me?”

Punny Happy Birthday Flip Card by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L - Outside of CardThis card is so fun to flip! Creating a stack of punny cards is easy with this design and the great images and sentiments from the No Pun Intended paper collection. Thanks for stopping by today!

No Sew Monogram Hoop with Felt Flowers

Hello crafty friends! Judy here today with a fun and trendy DIY home décor project, No Sew Monogram Hoop with Felt Flowers. This is an embroidery hoop project that requires no sewing! Who doesn’t love that?

No Sew Monogram Hoop with Felt Flowers by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Monogram Hoop Basics

Cut a canvas slightly larger than embroidery hoop.

No Sew Monogram Hoop with Felt Flowers by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Wrap Extreme Double-Sided Tape ¼ inch around outside edge of the inner hoop.

No Sew Monogram Hoop with Felt Flowers by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place the inner hoop on the canvas. Remove the liner from Extreme Double-Sided Tape and pull the opposite edges of the canvas up against the adhesive. Continue to pull the canvas snug and press against the tape until it is fastened to the hoop. Adjust as necessary to remove any wrinkles. Once it’s snug and even, press firmly against the entire edge to secure it to the Extreme Double-Sided Tape.

Turn the hoop over and place the outer hoop over the inner hoop and push them into place, then tighten the screw.

Turn the hoop to the back side and use small sharp scissors to carefully trim the canvas even with the hoop edge.

Making the Felt Flowers

Die cut three large and four small felt flowers and then six leaves. Roll the felt to form flowers.

No Sew Monogram Hoop with Felt Flowers by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place Adhesive Dots 3D on the back of each rolled flower. Heat the Adhesive Dots 3D slightly with a heat gun. Place the flap over the Adhesive Dot 3D and press firmly to secure the flower. Repeat for all flowers.

TIP: Warming Adhesive Dots helps them to stick better into the felt fibers.

No Sew Monogram Hoop with Felt Flowers by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place Adhesive Dots 3D on the back of each flower for fastening to the canvas in the hoop. Add Adhesive Dots 3D at base of each leaf. Leave liners in place to make it easy to arrange them on the monogram hoop.

Monogram It

Trace or draw monogram letter on the felt and fussy cut it. I found a style I liked online and printed it for a pattern.

No Sew Monogram Hoop with Felt Flowers by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place Extreme Double-Sided Tape ¼ inch and Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2 inch on the back of the felt letter. Use a paint marker to make faux stitches on the letter. Allow it to dry or use a heat gun to speed drying time.

Assembling the Hoop

Arrange the flowers and monogram letter on the canvas hoop. Remove liners from Adhesive Dots 3D on flowers and press onto canvas. Press from the backside while pressing flowers in place. Fasten leaves. Remove liner from Extreme Double-Sided Tapes on monogram letter and press into place.

I Love Us Card Tutorial

Hello, crafty cardmaking friends! Tracy here, and today I have a stunning I Love Us card that showcases the Creative Photo Corners as embellishments rather than using them the traditional way. Now, let’s get crafty!

I Love Us Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Creative Photo Corners in a Circle

Start by cutting a white cardstock circle that will accommodate the sticker sentiment. Add the sentiment and then using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser, add adhesive around the back of the cardstock circle.

I Love Us Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Have Faith Laminated Pocket Journal and Mini Album

Greetings, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Fans! Shellye McDaniel here to share a Faith Laminated Pocket Journal that doubles as a mini album. It’s easy to create!

Faith Laminated Pocket Journal by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Beginnings of a Faith Laminated Pocket Journal

Let’s start by creating the cover. I’m using the Self-Laminating Pouches – Cards Medium to create sturdy and professional looking covers for the front and back. Cut a double-sided patterned paper just a bit smaller than the laminating pouch, which is 4×6-inches, and insert it into the pouch. Seal the pouch, check out the video to see how easy it is. Best thing: it’s a great alternative to heat-laminating!

Have Faith Laminated Pocket Journal and Mini Album by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Embellish the Journal Cover

To embellish the cover I have this adorable die-cut set. It’s assembled with with 3D Foam Squares White Mix and the Dual Tip Glue Pen. For the border at the bottom, I used Crafty Foam Tape White.

Faith Laminated Pocket Journal by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Faith Laminated Journal Pages

For the inner pages use doubled-over cardstock. These are cut just a tad smaller than the cover size; approximately 3.75 x 5.75-inches when folded in half.

Faith Laminated Pocket Journal by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Pocket Details

In between the regular pages, I inserted two pocket pages! To make these measure 3″ longer than the page length, score and then fold up. You can double over the patterned paper so that the pocket carries over to the next page.

For the inside of the pockets, die-cut large tags and clip on laminated journal cards! These are so nice to have on hand as a reminder to yourself or to hand to others in need of a little pick-me-up 🙂 I trimmed the 3 x 4-inch journal cards down to fit inside of the Self-Laminating Pouches Small.

Before you attach the photo mats, corner-round the two outer edges and embellished the other side with Creative Photo Corners White.

Part of this kit collection is a set of 4 x 6-inch journal cards, which I’m using as an accent page. I am using two cards that were side-by-side horizontally, and then scored and folded in on the line between them.

Faith Laminated Pocket Journal by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Because I love the smaller journal cards, I attached one of them to the pages. I created a 1/4″ tab at the side and then attached it with the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4in.

So whether you need a unique gift or class project idea, this little pocket mini faith journal will not disappoint!

Flocked Window Card

Hi, everyone! Are you looking for a fun way to add texture to your next card or scrapbook page? I’m going to show you how to use flock and 3D Foam shapes to do just that in my Flocked Window Card! Along the way, you’ll see how to make a cool window card!

Flocked Window Card by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Creating the Window Card

Making a window card is incredibly easy! You can start with a pre-made window card like I did or you can make your own. Create a card from cardstock and then use a paper punch or steel die to cut a shape from the front of it.

Once you’ve got your window card, apply strips of patterned paper at the top and bottom of it. Then take several 3D Foam Creative Shapes and adhere them onto the front of the card.

Flocked Window Card by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Remove the liner papers and apply flock onto the shapes. (Don’t have any flock? Try using glitter instead!) Press the flock firmly onto the shapes and then remove the excess flock.

Decorating the Card’s Window

Now you are going to want to decorate the card’s window. Take several die-cuts and adhere them in the window. To make them pop, use 3D Foam Circles (or 3D Foam Squares) to mount them to the card.

Here’s a helpful tip for when you use 3D Foam Circles and 3D Foam Squares. If they are too big for the element you are adhering to a project, simply cut them in half with your scissors.

Flocked Window Card by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Finishing the Card

Complete your window card by adding a sentiment to it. Simply stamp your sentiment on cardstock and adhere it to your card with 3D Foam Circles or 3D Foam Squares. Again, use your scissors to cut your shapes down to fit in the open spaces on the card.

How to Make a Number Birthday Card

Hi everyone, Yvonne here with a number birthday card with a little bit of humor that will make the recipient smile! The older, the wiser we get, they say but I also think that it makes one realize that age is just a number!

With help from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® products, this card is super easy to assemble. The E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser is quick and precise, and won’t stain or bleed when adhering papers. 3D Foam Squares give a gorgeous lift to each number and the banner! Now, let me show you how to make this card.

How to Make a Number Birthday Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Number Birthday Card Base

On a white card base, adhere a slightly smaller kraft card panel using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable dispenser. Then adhere card panel cut from patterned cardstock (slightly smaller than the kraft card panel) with the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable dispenser.

Adding the Number Die Cuts

Now die-cut and emboss eight numbers from gold cardstock. I chose for the numbers one to eight.

Cut some of the small squares from the 3D Foam Squares White Mix into small stripes to fit onto the back of the number die cuts. Then adhere the numbers to the card base in two straight lines of four numbers. I chose to adhere to the numbers in ascending sequence.

Next print the sentiment and then cut to a banner. I made the sentiment in Word, using a typewriter-like font.

Now back the banner with a slightly larger kraft banner and use the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable dispenser to adhere the banner layers.

Adhere the banner to the  card front using the regular sized squares from the 3D Foam Squares White Mix.

Finishing the Card

To finish the number card I simply added some self-adhesive pearls for an extra elegant look.

A Trio of Notebooks Tutorial

Hi everyone, Christine here today with a trio of notebooks! Call me traditional but I still like to use a notebook for many things, I’ve yet to put everything on my cell phone! I always carry a notebook in my purse and it makes me smile when they are pretty as well as useful. My notebooks are easy to make and I detail how to insert that elastic strap, which is great for holding receipts and business cards. These also make super teacher gifts. Let me show you how to make this trio of notebooks with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®.

A Trio of Notebooks by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

A Trio of Notebooks Step by Step

I purchased 3 inexpensive mini notebooks from a local store. Next, I measured and cut 6 pieces of patterned paper, this is for the front and back of each notebook. Affix the patterned paper into place with E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser. You can aapply edge to edge adhesive so no worries of the paper lifting.

A Trio of Notebooks by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Use a nail file to sand the edges and this will also enable you to keep those attractive curved corners.

A Trio of Notebooks by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Apply a little Distress Ink to the edges, I chose to use Old Paper.

A Trio of Notebooks by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Using an eyelet setting tool, create a hole half way down the back cover of the notebooks and set a small eyelet. Thread a double length of thin elastic through the hole. Measure the elastic beforehand so that the loop slots around the notebook firmly.

A Trio of Notebooks by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Secure the two elastic ends in place with Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2 inch. You don’t want these to move so you need this excellent tape to guarantee a firm grip.

A Trio of Notebooks by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To hide the elastic ends secure down a page with Crafty Power Tape. Carry out this procedure for all three notebooks.

Here is the finished trio. By switching out the patterned paper you can make them for many occasions.

Patriotic Scrapbooking with Holographic Foil

Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing a patriotic scrapbooking layout. What better way to remember the excitement of the July 4th holiday than by adding extra sparkle to the page?! In addition to glittery embellishments, I use Metallic Transfer Foil in Holographic colors on chipboard fireworks.

Patriotic Scrapbooking with Holographic Foil by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I just love the colorful shimmer and shine the Metallic Transfer Foil adds to my design! All the sheets of Metallic Transfer Foil are quick and easy to apply using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® products. No additional tools, gels, powders, or heat are required, which makes this process super fun.

Make Patriotic Scrapbooking Embellishments

Patriotic Scrapbooking with Holographic Foil by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To begin, I adhered the base layers of patriotic patterned paper with the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser. Then I created layered embellishments for the page.

For additional texture, I stitched a couple of the larger patterned paper designs. Then I attached the starburst pieces to the layout with 3D Foam Circles.

Patriotic Scrapbooking with Holographic Foil by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Smaller hand-cut embellishments can also create dimension. Attach small designs using Adhesive Dots Small and press firmly onto the center of the embellishment and curl up the edges.

Patriotic Scrapbooking with Holographic Foil by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The patterned papers I used for this page have a matte finish. To add shimmer to my design, I selected shiny and glittery embellishments. I used Crafty Power Tape to secure the ribbon to the page. Ultra Thin Adhesive Dots are perfect for adhering plastic embellishments to all types of surfaces. They are nearly flat but strong enough to hold bulkier embellishments without extra height.

Add Foil to a Chipboard Die Cut

Patriotic Scrapbooking with Holographic Foil by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Prepare the chipboard firework for foiling. First, apply a layer of adhesive using a 12×12 Adhesive Sheet. Next, place the silver foil onto the adhesive surface and gently rub with a finger. To finish, peel away to reveal the foiled embellishment. Holographic Metallic Transfer Foils add colorful shine and dazzling luster to any adhesive surface.
