Easy Festive Shaker Notepad Tutorial

Christine here today with an easy festive shaker notepad project. This would make a cute Christmas stocking gift or ideal to write down all those jobs to do before Christmas! I rarely make shaker projects but when I do, I realize how easy it is with my Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® products at hand.

Easy Festive Shaker Notepad Tutorial by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Creating my Festive Shaker Notepad

Firstly I gathered together Adhesive Sheets, gold foil card and a snowflake die.  Here I’m using the 4″ x 6″ sheets, they are also available in 6 x 12″ and 12 x 12″.  You could make huge shaker projects! LOL!

The Adhesive Sheet will give me a perfect layer of glue on the back of my die cut and this is amazing for acetate!  Have you struggled to find the correct adhesive to affix die cuts to acetate?  Look no further, Adhesive Sheets are the answer.

I purchased a regular mini notepad from my supermarket and attached a pretty patterened paper to the cover with Crafty Power Tape.

From cream cardstock, I die cut a frame and attached this to my acetate snowflake with MyStik® Permanent Strips.

Next, attach Crafty Foam Tape to the reverse of the frame. Pop some glitter inside and seal closed with a square die cut.

Voila! A glittery Christmassy shaker notepad!  Fantastic for teacher gifts or for work colleagues. Also, fun to make with children.

Fun Holiday Shaker Card Duo with Crafty Foam Tape

Let’s get moving with some fun holiday shaker cards! Hey lovelies! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. I’ve packed Fall away and can finally move to creating fun things for Christmas.

Today’s card design can be used for any holiday or season. Just change up your cut out shapes and colors inside the shaker area. Check it out…let me show you how.

Fun Holiday Shaker Card Duo with Crafty Foam Tape by Latrice Murphy for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The Deets for your Holiday Shaker Card

Start by choosing shapes you love. I went with a Christmas tree and a reindeer. Find some holiday scrapbooking paper for the background and matching colors of sequins to get started. I found a great holiday collection from Simple Stories that was perfect!

The four images below show how the shaker feature is created.

After I cut my shapes on my card bases with the Silhouette Cameo, cover over the cut shapes acetate using my E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser to secure it in place.

Add Crafty Foam Tape around the shape but make sure that there are no gaps because those sequins will escape! You don’t want that 🙂 Also, don’t forget to add Crafty Foam Tape on the bottom and corners for balance.

Don’t forget to add those sequins in the middle area of your shape.

Trim your patterned paper size – enough to cover the back side of the card front. Finally, remove the liner from your Crafty Foam Tape pieces and cover with the cut paper. This should cover your shaker feature. Give it a shake – isn’t that fun?

Now we embellish the card front with cardstock stickers that came with this holiday collection to tie it all together. To bring more interest to the stickers, use 3D Foam Squares to pop up a few. See the close-up image below for some ideas.

Have fun with the shapes you choose and the embellishments too.

Happy holiday crafting!

Christmas Card with 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit

Glamour, dimension, and creativity; three things that can make a Christmas beautiful card. They are also three things that can be achieved by using our 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit!

With Christmas rapidly approaching, beautiful details are just what you need to create your cards.  Join me as I walk you through a Christmas Card with the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit and I showcase how to Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside!

Christmas Card with 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

First of all, I wanted to make a unique Christmas card and decided to go with an acetate base.  It’s a fun challenge to make an acetate card using creative twists to cover up the adhesive on the back sides!  Keeping things simple, I decided to adhere my cardstock to the acetate using my E-Z  Runner® Permanent Strips.

Due to the fact that I wanted some glamour for this card, I used the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit to create my star.  First I ran the foam sheet thru my cutting machine and cut a big star.  Then I peeled off the top to reveal the adhesive on one side and set the foil on top.  The kit comes with silver, red, gold, green, and blue foil!  Since I was making a Christmas Card, I opted for red. I ran it thru the machine again and just like that, I had a beautiful, big, foiled star. In addition to the foiled acetate and foiled patterned paper, a foiled star made for a nice trio!

Video Tutorial for Christmas Card with 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit

To coordinate the inside of the card I added a square on the top part and just added a few simple stickers.  Additionally, for the bottom part, I wanted to add a gift card.  Due to the fact that I wanted to make it easy to remove, I used an Adhesive Dot Large Repositionable.  These are perfect for times like this when you want it to be easily removed but held in place in the meantime.

Thanks so much for joining me today!

Holidays Shine Card using 3D Foam Stars

Using 3D Foam Stars to create a holiday card with glitter to WEAR YOUR ADHESIVES ON THE OUTSIDE today 🙂 Happy Hump Day, everyone!

After that long Thanksgiving weekend, I am already looking forward to the Christmas break. HA! Hopefully, you are in the swing of things that are ALL holiday by now!! If not, why not start with this fun card?

Holidays Shine Card using 3D Foam Stars by AJ Otto

Embellish 3D Foam Stars

Let’s start with the 3D Foam Stars as the “star” of the show! These make the best and easiest embellishments to add to anything – cards, layouts, holiday gift tags…you get the idea  😉

Simply place your 3D Foam Stars on your project, remove the top liner and sprinkle glitter in this case (you can also use micro beads, heat emboss with embossing powder, foil and more!). Tap off the excess and it’s ready to go. So simple and easy…they provide the perfect amount of pop!


See How to use 3D Foam Hearts and Other Shapes video for a quick video tutorial…




Try any of our other 3D Foam Shapes that we offer. We even have fun seasonal shapes in a kit with foil, the 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit. Or make your own embellishments using your punches, dies or scissors with the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit. The sky’s the limit!

Thanks and Enjoy!

Merry Christmas Banner with Adhesive Sheets

I’m making a Merry Christmas Banner today! With Thanksgiving over and December just TWO DAYS AWAY, many of you are decorating for Christmas. Not me! I’m thinking about it though! LOL!! I try to make a few new things each year to add to my decorations.

It’s Judy here to show you this Merry Christmas Banner which I hope to hang it on a wreath or tree once I actually get those out of storage! HA! Using a combination of Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6ʺ and E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser, it will make this really easy to put together.

Merry Christmas Banner with Adhesive Sheets by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Start with the Banner Basics

To make the banner, I cut 14 small pennants from patterned paper.  The pennant top folds to the front to show the red pattern from the back side.  I’ve added a strip of green patterned paper under the fold for a contrast border. Applied them with the E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser to hold in place.

Adding the Letters

Next, I applied Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6ʺ to the back of red cardstock. Then I die cut the letters from the red cardstock and you end up with each letter having edge-to-edge adhesive on the back – so easy to fasten to the pennants.

After each letter is applied to a pennant, punch holes at the top and thread the twine through to connect my banner.

Happy decorating!

Die-Cutting with Adhesive Sheets

It’s almost time for all things Christmas! I spent time this past weekend in my craft room working on Christmas themed projects. I don’t like to rush past Halloween and Thanksgiving when it comes to home decor, so it will be a while before I do that, but as far as Christmas themed projects… bring ’em on! Let me show you what I’ve been die-cutting!

I love using Adhesive Sheets for die-cutting. They’re great for dies that have a lot of details. You don’t have to worry about getting your adhesive into small areas, because when you die cut with the Adhesive Sheet applied, all you have to do is peel away the top liner sheet and you have edge-to-edge adhesive coverage.

Die-cutting with Adhesive Sheets by Vicki Chrisman

Die-Cutting with Adhesive Sheets

I’m layering these two graduated sizes of scalloped circles, with the large one covered with glitter.

I added my Adhesive Sheet to the top a piece of white cardstock and then die cut it. Now simply peel away the Adhesive Sheet liner to expose the adhesive and sprinkle with glitter.

If you look back at the original base piece I choose to use, it had some foil stars printed on the paper. I love that detail and I realize I will cover it those up as I add the scalloped squares. No problem, I broke out my 3D Foam Stars and the red Foil sheets in the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit (the star shape and foils are in the 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit which I didn’t have). Now I have dimensional stars to add to my card design.

Using the best adhesive for the job really makes the process even more enjoyable. I keep a basket of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® adhesives on my desk, to have them at my fingertips. It’s easy to grab just what I need for each specific job.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Mixed Media Journal Cover

I’m working with leftovers today, both in the kitchen and in my studio! It’s Dana Tatar today sharing the mixed media journal cover I created.

Now that the Thanksgiving holiday in the US has passed, I’m turning my focus to Christmas crafts and gifts. Instead of using the images and symbols normally associated with the season, I am working with a festive color palette. I am able to design with confidence knowing that Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products give a strong and immediate bond on multiple surfaces.

Mixed Media Journal Cover by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3LThis project starts with a store-bought journal. Designer Tip: Select a journal made from a variety of textured paper, lace, canvas, and corrugated cardboard for added interest.

How to Construct a Mixed Media Journal Cover


First, gather patterned paper scraps, embellishments, and ephemera. Next, use Crafty Power Tape to secure the patterned paper to the journal cover. This super-high tack tape makes it easy to apply any paper crafting item to surfaces.

Then, use Dodz Adhesive Dots 3D to secure heavier items to the journal. Dodz are double-sided, clear adhesive dots of glue with dimension. The strong, flexible bond of this adhesive makes it perfect for sticking heavier embellishments to soft textiles.


Finally, attach heavier elements, such as envelopes, to the album cover with Extreme Double-Sided Tape. Then use the E-Z Runner Grand Dispenser to attach photographs and ephemera to the envelope. You can further personalize the envelope with decorative washi tape, stamping, and charms.

Mixed Media Journal Cover by Dana TatarI hope I have inspired you to use your adhesives on textiles and dimensional surfaces! Journals like this make a great stocking stuffer, or gift for any occasion year-round.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Winter Time Card with No Line Coloring Technique

Sharing a Winter Time Card using the no line coloring technique today. Good morning friends! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Michele here with a card that I like to refer to as “take two!” Not too long ago, I made a card using this same stamp set and no line coloring. You can see it by clicking: Birthday Girl with No Line Coloring.

I enjoyed that stamp set so much that I used it again for a winter themed card. The image was stamped in a very pale brown ink. I used Copics and a white gel pen for the buttons and color. I also stamped a few snowflakes to really amp up the winter feel!

With the Adhesive Dots Micro, I adhered the teeny posey embellishments to the card panel. These adhesive dots are clear dots of adhesive. Easy, touch-free application from our unique patented single dot dispenser box, which doubles as storage. They come in several different sizes.

Next, I layered coordinating card stock using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips.  Then I tied a vertical bow and jingle bells for a bit of fun.  I didn’t want it jiggling around so I used the Dodz Adhesive Dots Medium underneath to keep it secure.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I am off to do some Black Friday shopping! 🙂

Christmas Reindeer Card with Easy Adhesive Layering

Good morning! Yvonne here, to show you how to create this layered Christmas Reindeer card. Adhesive layering is so easy with my E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser and 3D Foam Squares White Mix at hand.

Christmas Card using Adhesive Layering with Scrapbook Adhesives™ by 3L, byYvonne van de Grijp

Layered Card Making

Die cut the elements of the scene with a variety of papers. For the snow drifts use a combination of glittered, plain and textured white papers. Punch the snowflakes from glittered paper. Die cut and color the reindeer image.

Simply apply Permanent Strips from the the E-Z Runner® Grand over the back of the snow die cuts. Arrange them to create the scene and adhere the die cuts to the card base.

It’s so easy and quick to layer this way.

For the stamped and colored reindeer image and the sentiment, use 3D Foam Squares for an extra 3-Dimensional effect.

Affix the snowflakes using Dodz Adhesive Dots Mini, and lift the edges to make it look like they are falling.

Christmas Card Dimension with 3D Foam Squares

Hey crafty friends! Tracy here, with a simple little project share today. ‘Tis the season to be crafting and card making for the holidays. So today, I thought I would share a quick and easy card with lots of impact and dimension using some of my favourite Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Creating with Dimension

A simple but striking card can be the crafting superhero during a busy holiday season! With the right adhesives you can create high impact, dimensional cards quickly and easily.

So many scrapbook paper collections now come with lots of fantastic coordinating embellishments that are just PERFECT for card making. So today I am sharing this easy card using a paper collection and a few cute coordinating embellishments.

Christmas Card w/dimension by Tracy McLennon

By adding 3D Foam Squares to your embellishments, you add SO much extra dimension and interest to the eye. Thus, taking your card from ordinary to adorable in seconds. I added 3D Foam Squares between my larger layers of patterned paper as well as to my embellishments.

There is another adhesive that has been my GO TO lately for crafting, and that is my Adhesive Dots. Sequins are a hot embellishments these days, but can sometimes be tricky to get to stay put. But NOT when paired with Micro Adhesive Dots. These mini dots are perfect for crafting with ANY tiny embellishments.

The other perfect adhesive accessory that I added to my Christmas card, were my Gold Creative Photo Corners. They just add that perfect amount of shine to coordinate with the gold sequins and baker’s twine, and they create a frame for my focal point.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and happy holiday crafting!
