These gift tags were unbe-“leaf”-ably easy to make and look great when added to gifts handed out during the Fall months. They also are fun to use to decorate Thanksgiving and Harvest dinner tables with.

Easy Leaf Gift Tags with Foam Shapes + Flock

Start by placing several 3D Foam Frames on different color patterned papers.

Easy Leaf Gift Tag Tutorial |by Teri Anderson fo rScrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Trim the frames, leaving a border around each one. You can make the border as thick or thin as you’d like. Add some 3D Foam Leaves and Circles to the inside of your frame until you get the desired look.

To Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside, remove the liners from all the 3D Foam shapes and cover them with either flock or glitter. Make sure you burnish the flock or glitter onto the foam by rubbing your fingers over it until there are no sticky parts exposed. Tap off excess. It’s that easy!

Adhere your patterned paper panels to a rectangle piece of kraft cardstock. Add a stamped or handwritten sentiment strip to each tag. Any sentiment fitting your desired occasion for your tags will do!

Poke a hole through the top of each tag and add a little kraft jute to it.

Complete your tags by adding stitch marks with a pen. You can even make dots or add both dots and stitch marks!

Together Fall Layout

Hello, autumn loving crafty friends! Tracy here, and today I have a fun Together Fall Layout to share. It features a dimensional background using some of my favourite Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. Here are all of the details.

Together Fall Layout By Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Together Fall Layout Basics

First, you will want to gather your patterned papers and start creating a simple background for this Together Fall Layout. The white cardstock is the base. Cut a piece of kraft cardstock to 7.5 x 12-inch and adhere up the middle of the layout using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.

Next, cut two strips of the plaid pattern to 0.75 x 12-inch. Adhere one strip to the bottom of the layout using Crafty Foam Tape108ft. Set the other aside for now.

Together Fall Layout By Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Background Details

Cut many 1-inch patterned squares. There are five squares in each row, so I cut and piled the squares in the order that I wanted them to appear.

Also cut a strip of the polka dot pattern to 1 x 7.25-inch and adhered it to the bottom of the kraft cardstock using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.

Together Fall Layout By Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Each row of squares are added using a 3D Foam Squares White Small Size in one corner, and E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser in the opposite corner.

Adhere to the Together Fall Layout with the foam square at the bottom, this lifts each square for that little bit of dimension.

Together Fall Layout By Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Repeat this for each row, all the way up the kraft cardstock.

Once the squares reach the top of the kraft cardstock. Add the plaid border strip that you previously set aside using Crafty Foam Tape108ft.

The Finishes

Mat the photos in white cardstock using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser, and adhere to the Together Fall Layout with the 3D Foam Squares White Mix.

The sticker title was added to the left-hand side of the layout. Add the ephemera pieces around the matted photo and on the left-hand side of the layout using a combination of 3D Foam Squares White Mix and Adhesive Dots Micro.

Glittered Cage Fall Card

Hi everyone, Yvonne here. With the trees changing colors and the leaves falling, I was inspired to make this happy fall card to celebrate the season’s beautiful colors. For a pop of glamour, I added a glittered cage!

Glittered Cage Fall Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Layering the fall images is made simple using Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix. But the unexpected surprise is adding a glittered element.

Glittered Cage Card Base

First, choose the colors you want to use for your fall themed card. How wonderful to choose such a beautiful fall color palette!

Glittered Cage Fall Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

For my card, I used a white card base and paired it with a burgundy card panel as a second layer. Adhered together using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser. Next, mat with a piece of wood panel patterned paper. Again use the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser to adhere to the card base and this panel layering part is done.

Add Sparkle Accent

Now for the fun part! Start with die-cutting a bird cage shape from 3D Foam Creative Sheets Small, Black. This foam sheet is so easy to use and cuts like butter! No foam residue on the die.

Glittered Cage Fall Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
Glittered Cage Fall Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Pull off the liner of the cage die cut and adhere it to the centre of the card.

Next, carefully pull off the top liner of the cage shape. Grab a fall color glitter and sprinkle on top of the exposed adhesive. Press the glitter into the cage shape to secure and then tap off the excess.

Glittered Cage Fall Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Now you have this amazing glittered element and the extra surprise? It is also dimensional! We call this technique Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside. Instead of hiding the adhesive under layers of paper, it shines on the outside as an important element of my card.

Card Embellishing

Let’s embellish more! Start with fussy cutting images from a piece of patterned paper. Use a pair of small scissors to work around the details. Then adhere the images to the card using Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix.

Finally, using my label maker, punch out the happy fall sentiment and adhered it to the card.

Glittered Cage Fall Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Voila…your Glittered Cage Fall Card is ready to celebrate autumn. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and wish you happy crafting!

Happy Fall Flip Book

Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a quick and easy fall flip book album that I used to document my trip to a fruit farm. It doesn’t officially feel like fall for me until I spend a day outside collecting apples and pumpkins.

Happy Fall Flip Book Album by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I repurposed a store-bought flip book, converting the album from summer to fall, by swapping out some of the patterned paper pages and by embellishing the front cover with some fall imagery using the Stampendous Truck Loading Die Cutting Set.

Happy Fall Flip Book Album by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The flip book measures approximately 7.25 x 4.25 inches, and contains four 4 x 6 inch photo inserts and four printed pages that are perfect for journaling and memorabilia. To alter this flip book for my day trip, I first applied plaid patterned paper to the inside covers and the front cover binding using 1/4 inch Extreme Double-Sided Tape. Next, I cut fall patterned papers to size and alternated those pages with the 4 x 6 photo sleeves. Finally, I punched holes in each page and strung a piece of string through the holes to hold the album together.

Embellishing the Flip Book

Happy Fall Flip Book Album by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I saved the apple bag from my trip and used pieces of it in my flip book. The E-Z Runner Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser was perfect for sticking a piece of stamped paper to a plastic photo sleeve.

Happy Fall Flip Book Album by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I added fall imagery and quotes to many of the book pages to reinforce the themes of my photos.

Die-Cut Cover Details

I used the Stampendous Truck Load Cutting Die Set to create the fall scene for the flip book cover. After cutting and applying chalk ink to the die-cut pieces of patterned paper, I used the E-Z Runner Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser to adhere theme to the album cover.

Foiled Dots and Buttons Holiday Card

Hello, Sheri here again and I have a very quick & easy card that uses foiled dots and buttons accents to create a custom holiday card. Let me show you how!

Foiled Dots and Buttons Holiday Card by Sheri Holt for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

It only takes a few ingredients to create this one-of-a-kind card with lots of shine. I created my own background to match my focal image using adhesives and Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets in Variety Colors.

Foiled Dots and Buttons Holiday Card by Sheri Holt for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Foiled Dots & Buttons Tree

On a card panel, place various sized buttons to form a tree. Fill in the gaps of the tree with 3D Foam Circles in small size until I got my desired shape. Next, I picked up each button and attached small Adhesive Dots to the back and put back in place.

Foiled Dots and Buttons Holiday Card by Sheri Holt for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Foiled Stripes

To create my background, I simply added stripes with Extreme Double-Sided Tape ¼ inch to the front of my card base. One by one lay each color foil on the tape (color side up) and pressed to transfer each color.

Foiled Dots and Buttons Holiday Card by Sheri Holt for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Once my background was complete, I used the same process with the foam circles on my tree. Designer’s Tip: press with the end of an eraser head to make sure the circle was completely covered.

A simple stamped sentiment and black matting completed my focal image. I attached the panel to my custom background with the MyStik® Permanent Strips Dispenser.

Bountiful Blessings Fall Card

Hello friends! Judy here with a wonderful Pumpkin Truck card. When I was looking for fall ideas for this card, I found this pumpkin truck stamp in my stash. I’m a lover of old farm trucks and pumpkins! So this was perfect for me to make this fall card!

Bountiful Blessings Fall Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Working the Pumpkin Truck

To make this card, stamp pumpkin truck two times with Versafine Onyx Black ink on white cardstock. I used Misti for stamping so I could re-stamp each image as needed for a good impression.

Color one pumpkin truck image with markers. On the other image, color the front and back fenders only.

Bountiful Blessings Fall Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cut out the colored truck. Cut out each separate fender.

Bountiful Blessings Fall Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Apply Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix to the back of each fender. Squares can be cut in half and trimmed to fit. Fasten each fender in place on the truck.

Bountiful Blessings Fall Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Use a small ball stylus on a piece of foam to trace around the edge of the truck near pumpkins. Use stylus lines as a reference to know where pumpkins are for shaping them.

On the backside, use a large ball stylus to rub over the center of each pumpkin in a circular motion. This will make the paper slightly rounded on the front so pumpkins are slightly dimensional.

To define them even more, place truck face up on foam. Trace around each pumpkin with a small stylus.

Bountiful Blessings Fall Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix on the back of the pumpkin truck but not on the pumpkin area.

Place 3D Foam Squares Black Mix on the back of pumpkins. This will raise pumpkins slightly more than truck to keep them dimensional.

Background Building

Bountiful Blessings Fall Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Stamp tree background on 4.125 x 6.375 inch Kraft cardstock using Morning Mist ink. Stamp off the edge of the paper on the left edge. The image will not go clear across the paper. Ink and stamp again on edge with the fence.

Place scrap paper as a mask over the previously stamped background. Stamp on the right edge to continue the background across the paper on the right side.

Notice the two fences in the photo at the center and right side are the same. Use eye shadow applicator or cotton swab with Morning Mist ink to continue horizon if needed and to fill in the lower area below stamped images.

Bountiful Blessings Fall Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Card Layers

Form 4.75 x 7 inch top fold card from Kraft cardstock. Designer’s Tip: this will easily fit in a 5 x 7-inch envelope.

Cut 4.5 x 6.75-inch mat from black cardstock. Use the E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Dispenser to secure the layered card panel to the card front.

Bountiful Blessings Fall Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Assemble the Truck

Use the E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Dispenser to apply adhesive to the back of wheels on the truck. This will hold wheels flat on the card so it doesn’t appear to be floating. Adhere the pumpkin truck on the card.

Stamp Mini Strips Harvest on black card stock with Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Heat emboss with white embossing powder. Die-cut into strips with matching die.

Bountiful Blessings Fall Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Apply small squares from Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix to the back of strips.

Bountiful Blessings Fall Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Attach the greeting strips to the card. I use a quilting ruler to line them up straight. It works really well!

Use a gray marker to add shading near the wheels and under the pumpkin truck.

Bountiful Blessings Fall Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

You can see some of the dimension of the fenders in this photo. Although pumpkins feel dimensional, it was difficult to photograph them to show that.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my Pumpkin Truck Card! Thanks for Visiting!

Holly Jolly Shaker Card

Hello crafty friends. Tracy here! Today, I am sharing a fun Holly Jolly Shaker Card tutorial with you. Isn’t this design cute? Let me show you how.

Holly Jolly Shaker Card by Tract McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Let’s Make a Holly Jolly Shaker

I started my holiday shaker card by stamping my images using Staz On Ink, adding colour using Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Then I die cut out my shaker pieces.

Holly Jolly Shaker Card by Tract McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser, I adhere the ring die cut to the acetate.

Holly Jolly Shaker Card by Tract McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Next, I used 3D Foam Strips to live the inside edge of the Holiday Shaker Card top. I snuck in a couple of 3D Foam Squares White Small Size, to complete circle.

Holly Jolly Shaker Card by Tract McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Holly Jolly Layers

Create a simple layered card background using patterned paper, and a white cardstock base. I added the red patterned paper layer using Creative Photo Corners White. I adhered the other layers of the Holiday Shaker Card using E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.

Add the shaker filler, in this case, I used beads. Attach the stamped background to the shaker top.

Holly Jolly Shaker Card by Tract McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Finishing Off

I used the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser again to add the shaker piece to the Holiday Shaker Card. Then using Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix I added the stamped sentiment tag and the fussy cut gnomes.

Grateful Farmhouse Sign

Recently, my ten year old son came to me and said he wanted to find a way to earn some money. We had some leftover scrap wood from building a fence, so I decided to start working with him on learning how to do some woodworking projects. The more time we’ve spent together sanding and staining, the more ideas I get rolling through my head. Today’s project is the end result of one of those ideas! Christine joining you today, with a DIY farmhouse sign showcasing our Creative Photo Corners.

Grateful Farmhouse Sign by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

As you can see, I used A LOT of Creative Photo Corners. I had previously done this same technique on a layout, which you can see here. For months I have been wanting to try it on a home decor project. As we sanded and stained wood, I knew this would look gorgeous on these scrap wood pieces. Bigger bonus, my son got to contribute to the project, so he gets to feel some pride as he sees it too!

Creative Photo Corner Background

Creating this background was more simple and forgiving than you might expect.

Grateful Farmhouse Sign by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I started by tracing a circle onto 12 x 12 paper using a dessert sized plate. I opted to put it onto paper first rather than try to go straight onto the wood. That way, if I made any mistakes I didn’t have to start all over with the wood.

I used the circle as my outline for the first border of Creative Photo Corners. If you have to overlap a little, don’t worry about it! This has so many layers that it is incredibly forgiving and none of it shows up!

Grateful Farmhouse Sign by Christine Meyer using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I did two layers on each row – adding the second layer in between the peeks. This made it easier to add each consecutive row. To begin each consecutive row, I just moved in about 1/8 of an inch and started the next circle. Beyond my first circle traced, I just eyeballed things. As I mentioned earlier, even if it looks like things are getting off, it’s very forgiving!

In the end, this took me about 90 minutes to do, and I watched a movie with a friend while I did it! It took just over 1000 Creative Photo Corners.

Grateful Farmhouse Sign by Christine Meyer using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Look at all those beautiful layers!

Additional Adhesives

Grateful Farmhouse Sign by Christine Meyer using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Wasn’t sure how this was going to work putting together the rest of it but I was thrilled to discover that the E-Z Runner Grand Ultra Strong Refill solved that problem!

To secure the circle onto the wood, cover the back of the circle with the runner – giving a very thorough coverage. It stuck right onto the wood with no problem.

I even added the metal word “grateful” on top using the E-Z Runner Grand Ultra Strong Refill! With the smooth surface, I wasn’t sure but the adhesive worked well!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this unique Farmhouse Sign today. Create something unique and a little bit outside of the box on using those supplies!

Easy Shaker Birthday Cards

Hi, everyone! Like making shaker cards? Teri here, and I’m going to show you a way that is easier than ever for making them!

Easy Shaker Birthday Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

All you need are a couple Keepsake Envelopes and a few basic card making supplies!

Create a Shaker Birthday Card

Start with a rectangle of cardstock that is large enough to fit on a card base. Cover the rectangle with patterned paper. You can use just one paper or many. It’s entirely up to you.

Easy Shaker Birthday Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Use a die to cut a shape out of the decorated rectangle panel. (Don’t have a die? Use a paper trimmer to cut a square or rectangle instead!)

Easy Shaker Birthday Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Take a Keepsake Envelope and add sequins to it! Be sure to pick an envelope that is bigger than your cut shape. If you are using an envelope significantly larger than your cut shape, add a few lines of Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4″ to the inside of the pocket to keep the sequins from moving all over it.

Easy Shaker Birthday Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place the envelope on the back of the rectangle behind the opening. Secure it in place with Premium Double-Sided Tape 1″. Add some additional strips of Crafty Foam Tape to the panel and adhere the panel to a pre-folded card.

Easy Shaker Birthday Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Complete your card by adding a sentiment to it, as well as some embellishments. Stickers and sequins are a fun way to spruce up your design! Gems are another fun option!

Change Up Your Design

Don’t limit yourself to using just stars to cut your shaker window opens! Try using more generic shapes, like circles.

Easy Shaker Birthday Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

You can kick things up a notch more by decorating the shaker itself by adding a sticker or rub-on to it!

I hope you are inspired to make a few easy shaker birthday cards of your own!

Happy creating!
