Nathalie is absolutley thrilled to be part of the SCRAPBOK ADHESIVES by 3L™ Design Team for the second year now.
It is hard to pick a favorite project since it changes every time I’m working on a new project that very same project then becomes my favorite one. But Love Day is a layout I still absolutely love – it was published in the Scrapbook Trends Magazine. I used my favorite colors to create the background paper, I love Vintage Photos and the Vellum Tape Runner, E-Z Runner and Crafty Power Tape by SCRAPBOK ADHESIVES by 3L™ made for an easy adhering of all the elements.
This layout I think describes my style the best. It was just published in Somerset Memories as part of an article I wrote. It includes all the elements – creating my own backgrounds, using lots of colors, spray paints and other different media, including personal thoughts and hidden meanings into a project. Especially the usage of different media makes it necessary to work with quality tools and supplies – that is how I learned the hard way that a good adhesive is absolutely necessary to have a meaningful project for a long time.
I’m looking forward to my next year with SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES by 3L™ and I hope I can bring you some inspiration and ideas out of the box to use your adhesives.
Have a wonderful day
