I love that you can use the glitter on the adhesives that
match the paper or other embellishments that you
are using. You don’t have to buy a lot of
different colors of embellishments – make your

Such a wonderful hop with so many creative projects. Thank you for sponsoring this hop. It was such a pleasure working with your adhesives.

I never thought of doing glitter on top; I love the effect!

What a fun and clever idea. Am thinking balloon on birthday cards.
By Konni Andis November 3, 2017 - 1:37 pm
Never considered using glitter on tape! Amazing, unique and truly fun idea! Can’t wait to try it! I can’t thank you enough! Love customizing all sorts of paper crafts!
By Patty Eifert November 3, 2017 - 1:48 pm
Great ideas…I didn’t even know these were available!
By Jaycee November 3, 2017 - 2:02 pm
I like the idea of adding foil to the shapes and I like the line of glitter to dress up a card.
By Mary Kranz November 3, 2017 - 2:05 pm
I’m enjoying ALL of the ideas and the colors now available to me, but the technique that really stood out was one I’ve never even thought of!
On Savannah O’Gwynn’s blog, she used the small Thin 3D Foam Squares to create the shape of a cactus and then added bling. What a great idea! I can imagine being able to create all kinds of shapes in that manner, even cutting them to create curved lines. Best of all, different colors of glitter, beads, etc., can easily be kept separate by removing the individual square’s release paper, as needed. No overlap where it’s not wanted.
Although that’s my favorite idea because it’s so novel, each blog is a treasure trove of ideas! Thanks for the inspiration!
By Andrea November 3, 2017 - 2:12 pm
When using this product, it will be great to put glitter shapes wherever you want them! I like the ease of the process.
By Regina Furman November 3, 2017 - 2:13 pm
I really like the look of the foiling. I’m definitely going to have to try this.
By Regina Furman November 3, 2017 - 2:15 pm
Oh, and I’d most definitely use it when making my cards!
By Christi L Steinbeck November 3, 2017 - 2:27 pm
Wow what a wonderful idea! I make many cards for our local nursing homes and hospital. I would use this to pretty them up for our “forgotten seniors” that do not have any visitors . They are sooo thrilled to get a happy card when they don’t get a visitor or a any gifts . The nurses there say many haven’t received anything in years and carry their cards I make them around with them for weeks sometimes. This does my heart good. This prize would be such a blessing to me and the patients. Thank you for the chance!

Such wonderful ideas and inspiration! My mind is buzzing with ideas.
By Jennifer Seavey November 3, 2017 - 2:51 pm
LOve this idea!!! Glitter on top of the adhesive sticker! Way cool!
thinking of using this idea for my holiday cards.
By Linda Gatliff November 3, 2017 - 3:09 pm
I have been using your adhesives for many years 🙂 I adore them :):
By Carol H. November 3, 2017 - 3:17 pm
There are so many beautiful projects on this hop! Of course, I love the foiling, but a new way to use the micro glue Dots is what I really like—such a great idea to glitter them for embellishments!
By Karen Borden November 3, 2017 - 3:37 pm
I love the foil application. That would look so cool on cards.
By Terrie November 3, 2017 - 4:02 pm
Great tips; both ideas are so cool! I think I’ll try using the glitter method next 🙂
By Terrie November 3, 2017 - 4:07 pm
I think I’ll use the glitter technique on my Thanksgiving cards!
By Dana Norris November 3, 2017 - 4:02 pm
I can’t exactly say what my favorite part was because I loved it all!. I really loved the snowflakes with the glitter on them. They fit in with the Christmas cards I’ll be making. I’d have never thought to have used 3D foam. I loved seeing the foil used too. I could go on and on! I feel like a winner because I found some sites I’ll be going to every day.
By Cindy G. November 3, 2017 - 4:03 pm
That is a cool idea ?. Will be looking for some shaped 3D foam.
By Dee Earnshaw November 3, 2017 - 4:12 pm
wow so many neat ideas on how to create incredible looks with adhesive – LOVE the foiling techniques – this is my favorite medium at the moment and love how simple it is to make fun embellishments for my cards . Thanks for sharing:)
By Linsey R November 3, 2017 - 4:23 pm
My favorite “wear your adhesives on the outside technique” was the awesome one showcased with the 3D foam shapes!!! I absolutely LOVE how she added different mediums to the adhesive shapes, creating one-of-a-kind fabulous embellishments!!! My favorite is the foil technique one for sure!!! AWESOME hop!!! 🙂
By Susan Spiers November 3, 2017 - 4:33 pm
Love the glitter application – so easy! Would love to make a Christmas card with a red flocked paper scattered with different sized snowflakes glittered with a white color & then applied to the red flocked paper. A beautiful foiled green ribbon somewhere would be a great touch too! Thank you, Susan
By Gwen Burns November 3, 2017 - 5:20 pm
Love the Scrapbook adhesive products. Use lots of the Dotz and 3D Foam. Use them on nearly everything.
By Karen H. November 3, 2017 - 5:57 pm
I liked the glitter application. I love glitter! Smart idea.
By JAnice Carl November 3, 2017 - 6:11 pm
I love the idea of using foil on the leaves and I needed an idea of how to adhere sequins on my project not one at a time. Thanks for the blog hop!
By Kelly November 3, 2017 - 6:37 pm
love using tape to make glitter tape
By Shari A. November 3, 2017 - 6:57 pm
Love this idea. I think the glitter is my favorite, but I would probably use both. I’d also most likely use them for sealing envelopes, to add a little extra something. I don’t always have time to decorate the envelope too, so this is just a nice added touch. Thanks so much for sharing. ???
By Crystal DeJesus November 3, 2017 - 7:46 pm
I didn’t know you guys made other shapes!!! I love this idea of adding the foil directly to them!!
By Gilda (McStamper) November 3, 2017 - 8:25 pm
What a fantastic hop. Fabulous inspiration from the designers. . Especially love the look of the foil on the leaves and the crumpled foil on the heart. Thanks for the hop and your giveaway.
By Sue LD November 3, 2017 - 8:50 pm
Great ideas. I have never used foil before and would like to try that on my cards.
By Kirsty Vittetoe November 3, 2017 - 9:18 pm

By Cynthia Cole November 4, 2017 - 8:07 am
The foiling over the adhesive shape is great but I would try micro beads on it since I have many colors laying around.
By Marlene F. November 4, 2017 - 10:39 am

By inga klaus November 4, 2017 - 11:47 am

I forgot to answer the question sos sorry the glitter technique please
By Beverly Perdue November 4, 2017 - 12:47 pm
So excited about using the foam shapes on the outside and adding glitter or foil. The foil idea is brilliant. I didn’t realize you could do that. I’m going to use that technique! Thanks for the inspiration.
By Cynthia Weishan November 4, 2017 - 4:46 pm
By Marjorie Dumontier November 4, 2017 - 4:46 pm
Between the two techniques shown in the video, the result with the foil is really impressive !! It opens so many possibilities on cards ! But also on a lot of projects.
By Kim Klinkovsky November 4, 2017 - 4:53 pm
Great tips on how to use these products. Just lovely cards and tags. Thanks!
By Fay Marie Gardner November 4, 2017 - 7:44 pm

Love the effect of adding the foils! It adds such a pretty shimmer to the card!
By Arianna Barbara November 5, 2017 - 2:42 am
Wow! I’ve never thought of applying foil to shaped foam adhesives! I’ll definitely try to decorate my cards or my scrapbook projects!
By Stacey Kowbel November 5, 2017 - 11:22 am

I love all the new ideas!!!! I’ll put them to use on my next cards!
By Julie S November 5, 2017 - 5:18 pm
What a cool idea! I can’t wait to try it.
By Julie S November 5, 2017 - 5:20 pm
My favorite part about this technique is that I could make my own embellishments suited to the color scheme I need. Great idea!
By Denitsa November 5, 2017 - 5:33 pm
I love you creativity! It looks amazing! Especially the heart covered with glitter.
By Helene Monette November 5, 2017 - 7:44 pm
Great idea !!
I’m going to try the heart with a gold foil !!

I love that I am able to colorize the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to match my project perfectly! I get to use awesome products yet save money because of being able to match everything without having to buy a large package of , let’s say…pink glitter hearts when I only need one or two! With your products it allows me to only get what I need instead of wasting extras! Keep up the good work and I am going to stick with you forever and always! TFS!
