Create a Layered Border on a Fall Scrapbook Layout

Welcome back, crafty friends! Tracy here and today I have a fun little autumn-inspired layout to share featuring Creative Photos Corners in a fun new way. Here are the details for my Layered Border on a fall scrapbook page.

Create a Layered Border on a Fall Scrapbook Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Assemble the Layered Border

The first step to create my Layered Border is to cut 2 strips of kraft cardstock that are 2.75 x 11.25 inches. Cut one of the strips into 0.5″ pieces. Next gather your Creative Photo Corners Kraft, Creative Photo Corners Ivory and Creative Photo Corners Gold.

Begin the Layered Border at the bottom of the cardstock strip. Add a strip of the same kraft cardstock above each row of corners using the Double-Sided Tape Runner Strips Permanent. This will cover up and black and ivory backgrounds that may show underneath. Continue layering up the Layered Border using that same pattern, corners and strips.

Using your 4×6 photo as a guide in the middle of the strip, bring the rows up to the bottom of the image.

Continue from the other end of the Layered Border doing the same design and again bring it up to the middle section of the strip. Trim each end leaving just the tips of the corners.

Create a layered background using cardstock and patterned papers, and mat the Layered Border using a dark brown cardstock. Adhere the Layered Border at the side of the layout using Double-Sided Tape Runner Strips Permanent.

Complete the Layout

Double mat the 4×6 photo in ivory cardstock, and adhere it to the layout using Crafty Foam Tape White.

Start adding your embellishment bits, Fall pennant banner and the Grateful piece using 3D Foam Squares White Mix and Adhesive Dots Micro.

Give Thanks Stamped Card Tutorial

Hi, Connie Mercer, and I’m so excited to be a Guest Designer with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L!. I have a Give Thanks card tutorial using stamps, inks and really strong adhesive by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®.  This is a perfect card to include with a fresh loaf of homemade bread for a special gift.

Give Thanks Background

This technique can be used on any size card or tag.  The main thing is to have fun creating and trying new ideas!  To make the background for the card, place water reactive ink on a non-stick mat. Spray the ink with water and then dip the card front in the color mix. You can dry it with a heat tool. Repeat this process until you get the look you want. The inks work great layered one color at a time. Repeat the process again for the stamped leaf images.

Making Layers

Use the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable dispenser to attach the inked card front to a folded kraft cardstock card.

Add a strip of brown corrugated cardboard across the card with Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2-inch. This is strong tape and perfect for pieces that you don’t want to move. Cut out the leaf images and add them to your card with 3D Foam Squares Black Regular.

Card Details

Paint glitter on the stamped leaves with a glitter pen. It’s perfect for that sparkle we all love! Add buttons to the center leaf for some extra dimension. Wrap twine around the card bottom and tied in a bow. Punch a hole at one end of the sentiment strip, thread twine through and tie it to make a bow.

Give Thanks Stamped Card Tutorial by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

A great alternative in securing buttons and flat pearls to projects is to use Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2-inch. It works great and stays secure on the glittered leaf.

Autumn Card with Dimensional Ivy Tutorial

Hi everyone, Yvonne here with an autumn-themed ivy card that is all about adding dimension to your card! Crafty Foam Tape White and 3D Foam Squares White Regular make it so easy to add lightweight dimension to a card which also means low postage costs! We all love that, don’t we! LOL!

To finish the Autumn Card I added some layers of branches and leaves to make them more realistic. Let’s get started.

Autumn Card with Dimensional Ivy Tutorial by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Make a Multi-Layered Card Base

Start by die-cutting a window from green patterned cardstock. Die-cut and emboss a golden scalloped frame shape that matches the size of the opening in the cardstock.

Use Crafty Foam Tape White for the big green patterned frame and 3D Foam Squares White Regular Size to fit the golden frame. Trim some 3D Foam Squares into strips to fit the golden frame so nothing will stick out from under the die-cut.

Now adhere both layers onto a larger white, patterned, rectangle piece of cardstock. Trim that back layer to the desired card size.

Next ink the edges of the green and white layer using an ink pad and an ink blending tool.

Now adhere the stacked panels onto a white card base, adhere it using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.

Adhesive Sheets and Ivy Vines

For the vines, I turned a piece of brown cardstock into a sticker, simply by using Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch.

To make the sticker, first remove the yellow liner of from an Adhesive Sheet and adhere it with the sticky side onto the back of a piece of dark brown cardstock.

Now die-cut the brown cardstock, do this by placing the die with the cut side down onto the front of the cardstock. Die-cut several pieces with the vine dies.

Now it’s time to remove the white liner from the die-cuts and then adhere them to the dimensional card base.

By adhering them not only over, but also between the layers, you create depth and a realistic look.

Ink the Ivy Leaves

Start by die-cutting some ivy leaves from dark green cardstock. Then add the autumn colors to the leaves with chalky ink pads and an ink blending tool. Simply add some red, orange, pale green and yellow ink to the leaves and let dry.

After drying, slightly curl the edges of the ivy leaves. I used my fingers to curl, but you might find it easier to wrap them around a pencil, for example.

Adhere the ivy leaves to the vines with Adhesive Dots Mini.

Die Cut the Autumn Card Sentiment

Die-cut the sentiment from dark brown cardstock and use Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix, cut into small strips, to adhere it to the card base.

Voila…your Autumn Card with Dimensional Ivy is ready!

Halloween Matchbook Album Tutorial

Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing an embellished matchbook album that I created to document Halloween. I’ve found that I have a much higher success rate of actually completing a mini album when I have the majority of the work done before the event. This album was super fun to assemble and decorate.

Halloween Matchbook Album by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

In addition to detailing how to assemble and embellish this album, I’m also sharing my tricks for how to add texture and dimension to projects when space is limited.

Halloween Matchbook Album Assembly

On each of the six pockets, fold the left side tabs in and apply HomeHobby by 3L® Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4-in . Next remove the top liner from the tape and fold the right panel over on top of the left. Press firmly along the adhesive tabs to seal.

Fold up the bottom tab on all six pockets. Apply Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4-in to 5 of the pocket tabs. Leave one pocket tab adhesive free. One at a time, remove the liners from the tape and stack the pockets on top of each other. The pocket without adhesive on the tab should be on the top of the stack.

Fold all the score lines on the Matchbook base. Apply Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4-in to the center panel as shown. Remove the liner from the tape and adhere the stacked pockets to the center panel. Press firmly to secure the back pocket to the adhesive.

Use the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable to adhere patterned paper to both sides of each pocket page, as well as the inside and outside covers of the album. To secure the bottom portion of the cover to the album, apply Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4-in to the top tab on the top pocket of the stack. Remove the liner and fold the bottom flap of the matchbook cover up and press to secure. The top flap of the cover folds down and tucks underneath the bottom flap to close the album. Slide six cards or tags into the pockets of the album.

Embellishing with Texture and Dimension

How to Use Creative Photo Corners with Die-Cuts  by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Use White Creative Photo Corners to dress up the edges of square or rectangle shaped die-cuts to add a decorative element without adding extra bulk. The variety of matte, metallic, and clear photo corners, easily complements or blends with any paper collection.

How to Use Small Adhesive Dots with Sequins  by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Sequins are a fun way to add a thin layer of color and shine to patterned papers. Adhesive Dots are the perfect choice for attaching intricate embellishments to projects. Just press, peel, and stick!

How to Use Keepsake Envelopes for Shaker Pockets by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Tuck die-cuts and sequins inside Keepsake Envelopes to create a fast and tidy shaker pocket. Simply insert items into the envelope and affix with the resealable flap. Your embellishments are secure yet accessible in a see-through envelope with clear, permanent adhesive on the back side.

How to Secure Textured Embellishments Like Canvas and Felt with Adhesive Dots by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The strong bond of Adhesive Dots makes adding canvas and felt pieces to projects quick and easy. Adding thin layers of different fabrics is a great way to add a fun texture to paper pages to make the album interesting to flip through and fun to touch.

Halloween Matchbook Album  by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Here’s a peek inside the embellished Halloween Matchbook Album. Each tag pulls out of the pocket with a place to add photos and journaling.

Do you dress up for Halloween? My daughters are going out dressed as an anime character and a banana. I’d love to know what your loved ones are wearing. Let me know in the comments section!

Happy Harvest Treat Box Tutorial

Hello everyone! It’s Judy here today with a Happy Harvest Treat Box tutorial. It makes a great gift for Thanksgiving, filled with seasonal colored chocolates, nuts or baked goods. Where I live with farm land all around, cool days and dry winds have turned the fields to shades of brown and gold. The fall harvest is underway. Leaves are changing colors and fluttering to the ground. It’s time to celebrate harvest time!

Happy Harvest Treat Box by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Happy Harvest Treat Box Instructions

This Happy Harvest Treat Box is an easy project! The box base is a cookie box with a window. Start cutting patterned paper to fit the box top. Apply an Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6 inch to the back of the paper, then die-cut an opening in the paper, I use a circle here.

Next add Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6 inch to the back of brown cardstock. To create the border around the window opening, nest two circle dies together and place onto brown cardstock. TIP: Secure the dies to the cardstock with washi tape so they don’t shift during die-cutting.

It’s simple to fasten each piece to the box by removing the Adhesive Sheet liner and pressing them in place!

Happy Harvest Treat Box by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The Finishing Touches

There are many ways to color the die cut leaves. I like to use various colors of water reactive inks. For a quick and easy way, use different shades of paper. The leaves are held in place using a combination of Adhesive Dots 3D, Adhesive Dots Micro, and Adhesive Dots Small, depending on the width of the die cut stems I’m working with.

To finish the top, tie a bow with hemp twine and hold it in place with Adhesive Dots Small. The stamped greeting is tucked in by the bow and fastened with Adhesive Dots Small.

Happy Harvest Treat Box by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Now fill the box with sweet treats! It’s a fun gift to share with coworkers, neighbors, friends or family! It would look great on a table setting! Happy Harvest!

Create the Napkin Ring

Cut a piece of paper towel roll that is about 1-inch wide, then using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser, cover it with a strip of patterned paper. This is the base for the napkin ring.

Take Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8in and attach the pom pom trim around the top and bottom of the paper napkin ring.

Make the Sunflower Topper

Now punch two cardstock circles with a 1.5″ circle punch. These are the bases for the sunflower.

Adhere Creative Photo Corners Gold around the edge of each of the cardstock circles.

Stack the sunflower layers together and adhere them with 3D Foam Squares White Regular. I added a very large brown button to the middle of the flower using Adhesive Dots Large.

Now add simple loops of burlap string to the paper on the napkin ring using Adhesive Dots Large. The sunflower is also added to the ring using Adhesive Dots Large, completing the autumnal sunflower napkin ring. It’s ready for your fall or Thanksgiving table.

How to Make a Mrs. Frank Detergent Pail

October Greetings! My favorite month is finally here and I’ve been holding off on creating this cutie for my Halloween display, meet Mrs. Frank! She’s just like her hubby, upcycled from a few pieces from my home and craft stash.

Creating a Monster: Mrs. Frank

I start with an empty detergent pail, that I would have normally tossed in the recycle bin, and removed as many of the decals as possible.

My supplies include scrapbook paper, buttons, twine and various adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Start by tracing around the label on the back of the container with a permanent marker. By tracing around this area I am able to see it to trace the shape onto Adhesive Sheets 12×12 inch and patterned paper.

Adhere the Adhesive Sheet to the patterned paper an then to the pail. Outline around the edge with pieces of Adhesive Lines. By stretching the adhesive lines as I apply, I am able to make the Adhesive Line thinner. Next, apply twine to the Adhesive Lines and press into place. I’ve also found that it helps to slightly heat the Adhesive Lines with a heat tool; this creates a nice bond with the twine.

Embellishing Mrs. Frank

Now onto the embellishing! Attach the stitch marks die cut, smile die cut and felt circle shapes with the Dual Tip Glue Pen. Then attach the white part of the eyes with 3D Foam Squares, White, Regular. The buttons are added with Adhesive Dots 3D.

Once again, use Adhesive Lines to attach the felt “bolts” to the side of the pail. The bolts are actually felt cut with a mini jar die, clever, right?

Finally, dress up the top with a disc of matching paper and attach the cute bow with Adhesive Dots 3D.

How to make a Mrs. Frank Luminary for Halloween by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

There are so many ways to decorate with your cute pail! I added battery-operated mini lights to my Mrs. Frank to make a luminary and look at how she shines in the dark!

Big Hello – Easy Shaker Card Tutorial

Hi, everyone! Do you like to make interactive cards? It’s Teri here today with an easy way to make an easy shaker card with 3D Foam Frames, a piece of transparency and a few basic supplies.

Big Hello Easy Shaker Card Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Creating the Easy Shaker

Start by creating a card from white cardstock. Decorate the card with panels of cardstock and patterned paper. This is a great time to use up some smaller pieces of designer paper! Adhere them to the card front with the E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser.

Cut a piece of patterned paper slightly larger than a 3D Foam Frame. You’ll also want to cut a transparency panel. It should be the same size as the patterned paper.

Adding beads to the Big Hello Easy Shaker Card Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place the frame onto the piece of patterned paper. Set some seed beads or sequins inside the 3D Foam Frame, onto the patterned paper panel. Mount the transparency on top of the frame.

Next, add a 3D Foam Shape to the shaker. I used a 3D Foam Butterfly but any shape will do. Remove the liner paper and cover the shape with flock or glitter. Place the shaker on your card.

Stamp a sentiment onto a strip of cardstock. Adhere it to the shaker with Crafty Foam Tape.

Complete your card by adding some gems or sequins to the shaker with Adhesive Dots Micro. Use a few to add a little pop or use a lot to create a whole bunch of glitz!

DIY Textured Bohemian Notebook Cover

Hi everyone, Yvonne here with a hip textured bohemian notebook. With Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Adhesives, it’s so easy to give a plain notebook a gorgeous textured faux leather cover.

DIY Textured Bohemian Notebook Cover by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser is a great tool for an extra strong bond that a cover needs. Let me show you how!

Starting the Textured Bohemian Notebook Cover

Put a piece of chocolate brown cardstock inside a large embossing folder and run through your die-cutting and embossing machine.

Fold the cardstock to establish front and back covers. Then put some dark grey gilding wax on your finger and rub over the textured paper. Repeat with copper, silver and gold gilding wax until you get your desired worn, faux leather look.

DIY Textured Bohemian Notebook Cover by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Flip your embossed/ textured cardstock with the waxed side down and lay your open notebook on top.

With a pair of scissors, cut out the tabs as shown in the photo. Start with the back of the notebook and repeat for the front.

DIY Textured Bohemian Notebook Cover by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Next, apply the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong to cover the backside of the cut cardstock piece. Start adhering the back of the notebook to the textured cardstock and fold the tabs to the inside of the cover, as shown below. Repeat for the front of the notebook.

Add Ribbon and Trim

Use Crafty Power Tape to adhere white satin ribbon to the front and back of the notebook. Make sure the ends are long enough to make a bow, which will be tied later on.

Adhere a piece of grey lace below the white satin ribbon. Next, a piece of fringed trim under the grey lace. All are secured with the Crafty Power Tape.

Then adhere a button to the star’s center with Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix and tie a bow with the satin ribbon.
