Hi, Connie here with a Merry Christmas Greeting Card featuring Creative Photo Corners in White and the E-Z Runner® Grand Repositionable Dots Refillable Dispenser. I have also added Season to be Jolly patterned paper and stamps by Dare 2B Artsy.

Merry Christmas Greeting Card Step Outs

I have a few step photos showing how the Creative Photo Corners highlight the focal image of the card.

Merry Christmas Greeting Card by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To create the focal image, stamps were used on 2″x 2″ size squares making a grid. The grid was adhered to black cardstock using the E-Z Runner Grand Repositionable Dots Refillable Dispenser. This worked perfectly to help keep the squares straight.

Holiday Plaid Pocket Tag

Hi, Margie here today with a wonderful Holiday Plaid Pocket Tag that you can tuck in a gift card and a gift tag. I used a thin metal cutting die but you can find online a pocket tag tutorial or two.

Holiday Plaid Pocket Tag by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Holiday Plaid Pocket Tag Pieces

Die-Cut a pocket tag base from the Boughs of Holly patterned paper with the Interactive Tag Die. Next, die-cut a tag from the tag die paper with Tula & Norbert’s Christmas Party Tag Die. For the decorative elements, die-cut a 2 1/8-inch scalloped circle from white cardstock and a 1 5/8-inch circle from the Boughs of Holly patterned paper.

Holiday Plaid Pocket Tag by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Assemble the Pocket Tag

Apply Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8in. on the tab and bottom of the pocket tag base. Remove the liners and secure to create the pocket tag. Add Crafty Foam Tape Black 108ft. to the back of the circle and secure it on the white scalloped circle. Then adhere the layered circle to the pocket tag front with E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips.

Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside with the Tag Front

Choose your star placement with 3D Foam Stars for the top of the layered circle. Foil with a combination of green, red, and gold from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Celebrate Colors. Remove the top liner of each star and place the foil COLOR SIDE FACING YOU. Rub with your fingertips to transfer the color to the star. Repeat steps.

Embellish the Gift Tag

Depending on your tag design, place the 3D Foam Stars as desired. I chose the same foil combination of green, red, and gold from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Celebrate Colors. Repeat the foiling steps as above. Add into the pocket with a gift card and it’s ready to give away!

Hope you enjoy this gift presentation. Share your creation in the comments below. I would love to visit and leave a comment 🙂 Thanks for visiting!

Christmas Gift Card Holder

Hi, Judy here today! Here it is the end of November and I’m feeling the holiday pressure. As usual, I have far more ideas for things to make than time! With that in mind, I made an easy to make Christmas Gift Card Holder with patterned papers and printed tag fastened to a sleeve band that holds it closed.

Christmas Gift Card Holder by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Card and Score Card Base

Christmas Gift Card Holder by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cut a 5.25 x 11-inch piece of double-sided pattern paper. Use a scoring board to score at 2.5, 6.25, 7.5, and 8.75 inches

Assemble the Card Base

With the outer side of the paper face down, fold up at a 2.5-inch score line and 6.25-inch score line (valley folds). Fold back on a 7.5-inch scoreline (mountain fold) and then fold up on an 8.75-inch scoreline (valley fold).

Christmas Gift Card Holder by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

On the back side of the paper, apply Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4in. along the 6.25-inch fold and at the ends between folds. This will form a stand-up pocket for the gift card.

Create a Card Pocket Opening

Christmas Gift Card Holder by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Measure and mark about .75 inches from each end of top edge of gift card holder. Use scissors to cut away a narrow strip along the folded edge between marks. This will open a pocket for the gift card. Rub Distress Vintage Photo ink along the edges of the pocket and all edges of the card.

Christmas Gift Card Holder by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Stamp Greeting

Christmas Gift Card Holder by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cut a 0.375 x 5.25-inch strip of Balsa cardstock. Stamp Merry Christmas with black ink towards the right end. Apply Distress Vintage Photo ink along the edges and lightly over the strip.

Secure the Greeting and the Border

Christmas Gift Card Holder by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cut 1 x 5.25 inch piece of green pattern paper. Apply adhesive to the back with E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser and fasten along the front flap edge of the gift card holder. Apply Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4in. to the back of the stamped greeting strip, peel the liner, and secure it across the green border.

A Sleeve Band

Cut a 2.25 x 8.25-inch piece of stripe paper. Rub Distress Vintage Photo ink on the edges.

Christmas Gift Card Holder by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place against closed card front and fold ends to back. Apply Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4in. on the back of one edge, peel the liner, tape the ends, and press together.

Add Decorative Tag

Christmas Gift Card Holder by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Ink edges of ephemera tag with Distress Vintage Photo ink. Thread red pearl cotton through the tag hole and tie a small bow.

Christmas Gift Card Holder by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix on the back of the tag, peel the liners, and attach the tag to the sleeve band.

Christmas Gift Card Holder by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Simply slide the sleeve around the gift card holder to hold it closed and slide it off to open.

CAS Sparkling Birthday Banner Card

Hi, Margie here today! This super fun clean and simple (CAS) style Sparkling Birthday Banner Card is packed full of different cardmaking ideas that you can use in your cards. From foiling (no tools needed by the way), layering, and dimension, it will inspire you to try them too! Let me show you how.

CAS Sparkling Birthday Banner Card by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Birthday Banner Layers + Card Base

  • Card Front Panel: 5 x 3-inch white cardstock (missing in the photo below).
  • Panel Mat: 5.25 x 3.25-inch green cardstock.
  • Panel Layer: 5.5 x 3.5-inch patterned paper.
  • Card Base: 5.75 x 7.5-inch green cardstock and fold in half for a 5.5 x 3.75-inch top-fold card.
CAS Sparkling Birthday Banner Card by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Prep the Card Front Panel

Stamp a sentiment on the lower right corner of the panel. Place five fishtail 3D Foam Pennants (or six triangle pennants) across the top of the panel (approx.. 0.75-inch from the top).

Adhere the white card front, green cardstock panel mat, and the patterned paper panel layers together with the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.

Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside with 3D Foam Pennants + Foil

Remove the top liner of one of the 3D Foam Pennants. Apply a piece of the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Celebrate Colors on top of the exposed adhesive color side UP – the foil color is facing you. Gently rub the foil with your fingertips to transfer the color to the 3D Foam Pennants. Repeat the foiling step with the rest of the pennants.

I used all the color combinations in the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Celebrate Colors but you can use whatever color you like.

The Finishing Touches

Pull an E-Z Runner® Stars Shape with your tweezers or fingers and center on each of the foiled 3D Foam Pennant. Foil with a contrasting color for interest. I used beautiful gold from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Celebrate Colors.

CAS Sparkling Birthday Banner Card by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Assembling the Birthday Banner Card

Place strips of Crafty Foam Tape Black 108ft. on the back of the layered card front panel and secure it on the green card base. This gives the layers a subtle lift (1/32 inch which is half of 1/16 inch).

CAS Sparkling Birthday Banner Card by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Design Option: depending on the design, add a piece of twine across the pennant tops and secure it with the Adhesive Lines. Stamp a word or personalize it with a name using a small letter stamp (or letter dies + Adhesive Sheets) on top of the foil pennants.

Hope you give this a try. Thanks for stopping in!

Masking Strips for Inking Technique

Hi, everyone! Do you like to make your own backgrounds? Teri here with an easy masking technique to try next time you make an inked background for a card.

Masking Strips for Inking Technique by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cut Strips of Paper, Add Adhesive and Mask

Start by cutting several strips of lightweight printer paper. Make all of them the same height. The length does not matter. Apply E-Z Dots® Repositionable adhesive on the back of them.

Masking Strips for Inking Technique by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adhere them to a panel of cardstock to create a frame of sorts, leaving the middle of the panel open. Blend ink onto the panel. Remove the strips. Designer’s Tip: Create several inked panels at one time by cutting several strips and using them to mask off several panels before inking!)

Masking Strips for Inking Technique by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
Masking Strips for Inking Technique by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Use a gum eraser to remove any adhesive left on your paper panels. Be sure not to touch the inked up parts, in case your ink is not dry!

Masking Strips for Inking Technique by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
Masking Strips for Inking Technique by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Turn Those Inked Panels Into Cards

Turn the panels into cards by stamping images with black ink onto the panels. Take part of an Adhesive Sheet 4 x 6in. and randomly apply adhesive onto your inked panels.

Masking Strips for Inking Technique by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cover the adhesive with glitter! (Creative tip! Not feeling like using glitter? Use Metallic Transfer Foil instead!)

Masking Strips for Inking Technique by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Stamp sentiments on strips of cardstock. Adhere them to your panels with Crafty Foam Tape. Mount your panels onto card bases as well.

Complete your cards by adding some 3D Foam Stars on them. Cover them with flock.

Embellishment Tree Layout

Hello crafty friends! Tracy here, and today I have a pretty little festive layout to share that is a great way to use up your leftover bits and pieces of your favourite collections. Here are all of the details on how I created this Embellishment Tree Layout.

Embellishment Tree Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Let’s Get Festive!

Do you ever have a collection that you absolutely love? But have just bits and pieces left. I had 1 full sheet of patterned paper left, that is my 12×12 background. Then cut a piece of white cardstock to 11×11. Adhere the layers together using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.

Embellishment Tree Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I added the gift foam stickers to the bottom of the layout to create the base of the tree. Use a scrap piece of cardstock to create a triangular template with the remaining space that will then be the tree.

Embellishment Tree Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The next step to creating the Embellishment Tree Layout is to adhere the foam sticker embellishments to create the bottom layer of the tree, and the star foam sticker for the top of the tree.

Embellishment Tree Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Mat the mini photos in white cardstock, adhering them with the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser. I ended up only using 2 of the mini photos that I matted.

Embellishment Tree Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Lay the matted photos where you would like them to be within the Embellishment Tree. Add embellishments around the matted photos creating the rest of the tree image using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser and 3D Foam Squares White Mix to create lots of dimension. Then add the matted mini photos to the layout using 3D Foam Squares White Mix.

Finally, I added lots of gems in and around the Embellishment Tree for a little extra sparkle.

Amazing Kind of Day Fall Tag

Hi, Connie here with an Amazing Kind of Day fall tag that would look super cute on a loaf of homemade bread. I started with Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets, Adhesive Sheets 4×6, and Distress Oxide ink. This will give you a pretty cool background to start building the tag on.

Building the Tag Background

  • 1. Stamp focal images, color, and trim out. Add background stamps, to the tag, to enhance and add interest to the tag. Be creative with the stamps and ink, that’s the fun part.
    2. Add color to the tag using acrylic paint. All images are colored with Distress Oxide inks watered down. It gives a distressed watercolor look.

Christmas Shaker Card

Hi everyone! With Christmas a little over a month away I made a Christmas Shaker Card. This card is all about fuzzy cutting, layering, and of course a shaker doom. I would love to share how I made my card. Wanna join me?

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

Shaker Panel

Die-cut an oval from white cardstock. Then trim a white cardstock into a rectangle-sized top card panel. Use the cut oval as a guide to cut out a larger oval from a piece of white cardstock with scissors. This will become the shaker’s background.

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

Cut a piece of acetate to fit the oval shaker window and adhere it to the back of the card panel using Crafty Power Tape Dispenser 81ft.

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

Place strips of Crafty Foam Tape White around the back of the card panel and around the oval window. This will be the shaker window panel.

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

Designer’s Tip: I used scissors to make tiny incisions on the Crafty Foam Tape White around the oval shaper window to make it easy to “bend” around the window (as pictured).

Shaker Filling

To add a fun element to the Christmas Shaker card, I mixed a couple of wonderful shaker mixes from Buttons Galore More into the shaker feature.

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

Remove the liner from Crafty Foam Tape White and cover the window with the hand-cut larger white oval. Make sure no shaker material can escape. Adhere the shaker card panel onto a patterned paper mat, and place it onto a white card base using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.

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

Fuzzy Cut Elements

To add scenery to the Christmas Shaker card front, I fuzzy cut images from patterned paper and layered them with a combination of Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix and 3D Foam Squares White Small Size. This helps to create a lovely dimensional interest. For a final touch, stamp a sentiment on white cardstock, cut it to a banner, and adhere it with 3D Foam Squares White Small Size. Voilá, your card is ready!

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

Fun Fold Believe Card

Hi, Jamie here today with a Fun Fold Believe Card, made with a combination of craft dies and decorative paper. Send a card with a unique twist this holiday season!

Fun Fold Believe Holiday Card by Jamie Martin for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Create the Fun Fold

Cut a sheet of 8 1/2″ x 11″ periwinkle cardstock diagonally. Then scored to create the fold. Next, cut a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of decorative paper diagonally (this will make two cards). Adhere one piece to the bottom fold using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.

Fun Fold Believe Holiday Card by Jamie Martin for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Decorate the Top Panel

Die-cut snowflakes from white cardstock and secure them to the top fold of the card using the Dual Tip Glue Pen. Trim off the snowflakes that are hanging over the edge to give random placement.

Fun Fold Believe Holiday Card by Jamie Martin for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Making the Frame

Use a scalloped rectangle to die-cut from a piece of white cardstock. Die-cut a stitched rectangle that’s slightly smaller than the scalloped rectangle in periwinkle cardstock. Stack them together and attach with the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser

Fun Fold Believe Holiday Card by Jamie Martin for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Finishing Up

Center the frame on the card front and apply the Dual Tip Glue Pen to the left top fold of the card. Believe was die-cut from the same cardstock colors, layered together using the Dual Tip Glue Pen. Randomly place the hearts from the E-Z Runner® Hearts Refillable Dispenser around the sentiment. Sprinkle crystal microfine glitter over the hearts and secure the glitter by pressing it into the hearts. Tap off the excess.

JOY Wreath Mini Slimline Card

Are you familiar with the Creative Photo Corners? I love them because they’re classic in style with their embossed edges BUT I wanted to have fun with them by making a JOY Wreath mini slimline card. What do you think? Let me show you how!

JOY Wreath Mini Slimline Card by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Create the JOY Wreath

Grab a sheet of Creative Photo Corners in White and ink with a combination of Distress Oxide Ink in Shabby Shutters + Peeled Paint with an ink blending tool. When you get your desired look, cut off the bottom liner of the inked corners.

On a piece of 3.5 x 3-inch wax paper, place it on a 1.75-inch paper ring to use as a wreath guide. Start with two Creative Photo Corners in White by tucking one corner loosely into the other to create a circle chain around the paper ring as a guide. When the circle is complete, adjust and press the wreath down onto the ring to secure.

Embellish the Wreath

Adhere the vellum wreath die cut on top of the photo corner wreath with the E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine. The vellum photographed is different…this is to show placement. Carefully apply the adhesive to the vellum as it is delicate.

JOY Wreath Mini Slimline Card by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Add Holly Leaf and Berry Shapes from the 3D Foam Christmas Shapes on the wreath. Remove top liner from each holly leaf and apply green foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets in Celebrate Colors (color side up) by rubbing gently. Repeat the same process with the berries but in red foil as well as the foam circle shapes around the wreath.

Assemble the Card

Fold a 6 x 6-inch square white cardstock in half to create a 6 x 3-inch top fold mini slimline card base. Cut a piece of 5 7/8 x 2 7/8-inch Aspen green cardstock layer and a piece of 5 5/8 x 2 5/8-inch patterned paper. Adhere all both layers to the card base with the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.

JOY Wreath Mini Slimline Card by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place the sixth-largest 3D Foam Circle Frame on the back of the embellished wreath and center it on the card front. Die-cut the letter J and Y with 3D Foam Creative Sheet and place them to spell out JOY. Remove the top liners of both and apply the gold foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets in Celebrate Colors using the foiling steps.

I hope my JOY Wreath Mini Slimline Card tutorial inspires you to look at our Creative Photo Corners in a different way! Thanks for stopping in and have a Crafty Day!
