Shimmer and Shine Layout with Adhesive Dots

Welcome back, my scrappy friends! Tracy here and today I have a Shimmer and Shine layout to share featuring Adhesive Dots and some of my other Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L favourites.

I think I might be part crow, because I love ANYTHING that makes it shimmer and shine 🙂 With that comes some adhesive challenges. Something I have always struggled with was keeping sequins attached to my layouts. Well, in this post I have your solution.

Shimmer and Shine Layout with Adhesive Dots by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

This layout began with my base layers. Cream and white cardstock were used to make the largest 2 layers and the cream cardstock ring. If you have an electronic cutting machine, this will be easy. Me, I used 2 different sized dinner plates, traced them and cut them it out with scissors.

Adhere the base layers together with the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser. Then I used 3D Foam Squares to adhere the ring to the layout.

Once the ring is popped up on the layout I added Adhesive Lines ALL the way around the ring. This is what will keep your sequins exactly where you want them to be.

I added the sequins one-by-one around the middle of the cardstock ring. Then added a gold doily to the inside of the ring. When I work with more delicate papers, I like to get out my E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine Adhesive Dispenser, it will keep it down without destroying it in the process.

Next, I added my matted photo. In this case, I knew I was going to be using some dimensional embellishments. I wanted the photo to be extra popped up so that it didn’t get lost in the background. When I do this, I just double up those 3D Foam Squares.

Once the photo is in place, then I start to attach my embellishments. Adhesive Dots are my go-to adhesive to add anything from flowers to buttons.

I’d already gone glitzy, so of course, I added Creative Photo Corners Gold to my photo. Then I used Dodz Adhesive Dots Mini to add the acetate title.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
