Weaved Nautical Father’s Day Card using 3D Foam Squares

Father’s Day is fast approaching. Today I’m creating a clean and simple (CAS) card with dimension using 3D Foam Squares White, Regular, perfect for the dad who loves the ocean or lives by water – a fisherman, swimmer or lake house loving guy. Authentique Papers Seafarer Collection is just what is needed. Here’s a look at my finished card.

I have my material out on the table ready to use, along with 3D Foam Squares White, Regular and my E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser to put it all together.

First, I wove part of the background. I chose two coordinating patterned papers and used a little bit of adhesive to hold the edges in place as more and more strips were added. The E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser makes this easy with its thin strips. When finished, I trimmed off the excess hanging over the edge of the card.

To adhere the cardstock stickers, I used 3D Foam Squares White, Regular. They add a little bit on dimension to this card front and can be easily mailed.

To finish, some natural burlap string in a fun knot was added as well as the word “Dad” in letter stickers.

You can use this basket weave application on any style of card. It’s also a great way to use up scraps in your stash or if you’re not a stamper. Go get crafty!

I hope all of you enjoy Father’s Day with the men in your lives. I also want to shout out to any single moms playing both roles. Thanks for stopping in today.

Thinking of You Card using 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit

Hi all!  Angel here again and sadly, it’s my last day as a guest designer here on the fabulous Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog.  My card today features the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit using a new stamp and matching dies set to create this beautiful card. Let me show you how…

After the flower image was stamped, colored and die-cut (I did a few), I laid them out over my card base to get an idea of where I wanted to adhere them and also to see where the sentiment would look best.

I love the 3D Foam Creative Sheet in the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit  – it’s the perfect thickness to add dimension but not too much bulk.  I cut it down to the sizes I needed and adhered them to the backs of the flowers.

Before placing the die cuts down, I stamped the same flower image onto the card base for extra interest and then the sentiment.

Once they were all adhered to the card base, I trimmed off the excess that were hanging over.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  And THANK YOU to Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® for having me as a guest designer!!!  🙂

Gift for Dad

Latisha here with you today!  Can you believe Father’s Day is just right around the corner? The project I am sharing with you, is a super simple decorated bag and tag, that anyone can create.

  1. Trim patterned paper to fit the front of bag and adhere it using E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable tape.
  2. Adhere a smaller strip from the “b” side of patterned paper (shown in the above image).
  3. Apply alpha stickers (“DAD”) to the bag.
  4. For the tag, trim patterned paper to size and corner round each corner.
  5. Adhere a strip of different patterned paper to the bottom of the tag with E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable.
  6. Let’s adhere the die cuts using Crafty Foam Tape: place heart die cut on the strip and center the sentiment die cut onto the tag.
  7. Punch a hole in the tag, and tie to the bag with twine. 

This was so easy to make, and turns a plain Kraft bag into something special.  This technique can be used for any occasion or holiday!

Colourful Wreath Layout Using My E-Z Runner

Hey there! Tracy McLennon here sharing a sweet Colourful Wreath Layout I created with just a few of my faves from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®.

Here are my trusty side kicks for most of my layouts that I create. 3D Foam Squares Black, Regular E-Z Runner® Permanent and Dodz Adhesive Dots- Mini.

The E-Z Runner® Permanent is perfect for adhering smaller pieces like these leaves. I added adhesive just to the base of each leaf allowing the tips to naturally lift a little.

My go to adhesive for buttons are my Dodz Adhesive Dots- Mini and as always I popped my photo using 3D Foam Squares Black, Regular.

Thanks for stopping by and get crafting!

Watercolors, Dodz, and Crafty Foam Tape!

Good morning friends! Michele here with a water colored card full of die cuts, texture paste and gold embossing powder! And of course no card would be complete without the right adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®! For the background, texture paste spread through a wood grain stencil and sprinkled with gold embossing powder provides a pretty backdrop. Love it!

Next I water colored the flower with water colors and added a few details with a white gel pen.  The flowers and leaves were adhered with varying amounts of Crafty Foam Tape. One layer of tape on the small flower and the larger flower has two layers.

Sequins were adhered using Dodz Adhesive Dots Mini. They are so much easier to use than drippy, messy glue!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Happy Wedding Card using Adhesive Dots and 3D Foam Squares

Hi there and welcome to the weekend!  I’ve got the privilege of attending a wedding this weekend so I decided to create a card to give the happy couple.  Although as you’ll see the card does not have to be for a wedding…it could work for several themes!

Happy Card for a wedding or other happy occasion feauring adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

In order to add a variety of techniques and elements to this I needed to utilize multiple adhesives.

The E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser has quickly become an absolute favorite for me.  It’s perfect for all your normal adhering, loads easily, and is sturdy.  I used it to add my first two layers of patterned papers to the card base.

Next I used Thin 3D Foam Squares to pop up the petals on my card.  I used a craft knife to cut those up and the the squares ensure they will stay up even after getting smashed in an envelope.

Sequins can be a headache to attach.  But Adhesive Dots Micro ensure the headache won’t hit!  I used these to attach all my sequins and I also like to use them with other small embellishments like wood veneer and buttons.

Having a good adhesive on hand can make a project so much easier – be sure to check out all the adhesives that we have available!

Scrapbook Page with My Favorite E-Z-Dots Refillable and 3D Foam Squares Mix

Hi there, it’s Stephanie here today with a scrapbooking page for which I used my favorite E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser and 3D Foam Squares Mix White. Let me show you a little tutorial.

The 3D Foam Squares Mix White and the E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® are my most used adhesives. I use them for scrapbooking, cardmaking and my Traveller’s Notebooks almost every day.

1 – My first step to create a scrapbooking page is to collect all papers I want to use. It goes quickly when I use a collection with matching sticker or die cuts. I adhere my base with the E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser.
2 – Then I’m looking for matching diecuts and washi tapes.
3 – If I’m satisfied I’m adding my photo, sometimes with another background. I love to create a dimension look.
4 – I’m adhereing some diecuts with 3D Foam Squares Mix – White to give them a more 3D look.

5 – At the end I_m adding my title.
6 – Sometimes I see a space and adding some elements. On this I painted some leaves with watercolor, cut it out and adding the branch with the E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser. It’s perfect because it only adds adhesives (tiny little dots) on the paper where I need it.
7 – Then I’m adding my journaling.
8 – Finished

It’s a early summer page about the 1st of June, the International Children’s Day. We spent the afternoon at the dunes and did a picnic and they loved it.

Thanks for visiting us today!

Have a great day!

Watercolor Dots Card with E-Z Dots Repositionable

Hello everyone!  I have a technique to share using E-Z Dots® Repositionable Refillable Dispenser and watercolors to make a watercolor dots card.   This card has an abstract and kind of funky background!  Let your imagination run wild with this technique!

As you can see my background is pretty abstract and funky!

First, I placed my E-Z Dots® Repositionable Refill in my E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser (All the E-Z Runner refills can be used in any of the E-Z Runner Refillable dispensers).  I used it to apply wavy lines of adhesive over a piece of mixed media paper.  I chose that paper because it handles moisture well.  Watercolor paper could also be used.  I placed it on scrap paper so I could run the adhesive off the edge.

Then I brushed on watercolor, starting with blue.

Then added yellow…..

and rusty orange…

I dried it with a heat gun and then rubbed off the E-Z Dots® Repositionable adhesive.

I put my E-Z Runner Ultra refill back in my E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser and used it to fasten it to a white card.

I stamped the verse with black ink on white cardstock. After I cut out the pieces, I brushed rusty orange watercolor along the edges.  The verse pieces were fastened with E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser.  The narrow adhesive line is perfect for small pieces!

To finish the card, I added black accent lines at edges of the verse pieces with Neon Amplify!  Simple card design with fun background!

Here are 2 cards with plaid looking backgrounds using the same technique.

I challenge you to have fun with this technique!

Happy creating!

I adhered each sheet of pattern paper, the journaling cards and smaller paper embellishments using the E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser. Next, I adhered the star and heart embellishments and titles using Dodz Adhesive Dots Mini. Finally, to ensure my photographs are the focal point I adhered the cream photo mats using 3D Foam Creative Sheets. These sheets give the perfect amount of dimension so your layout is not bulky.

Father’s Day Photo Flip Book with Keepsake Envelopes

Hi friends! Dana Tatar here with you today sharing a quick tutorial for how to put together a fun photo flip book using Keepsake Envelopes. These clear self-adhesive envelopes are a great way to store, protect, and display photographs.

Unlike the photo sleeves commonly found in wallets, these envelopes won’t yellow over time. The acrylic-based envelopes are also tear-resistant so they’ll stand up to frequent handling for years to come!

Step 1: Cut photographs to fit inside Keepsake Envelopes. Remove the adhesive from the front of each envelope. (I used 4 small (2 x 2 inches) and 2 Large (4.13 x 3.5 inches) Keepsake Envelopes for my book.) Arrange envelopes as shown above: Large Envelope flap down, 2 Small Envelopes flaps up, 2 Small Envelopes flaps down, Large Envelope flap up. Place Adhesive Lines in the center of the flap of each Small Envelope.


Step 2: Remove two Small Envelopes from the backing liner and press together. Repeat for the remaining two Small Envelopes. Remove the protective sheet from the Adhesive Lines on the center of each Small Envelope flap. Insert the Small Envelope flaps into the Large Envelopes behind the photos. Two Small Envelopes fit side by side in one Large Envelope.

Step 3: Tuck the flap of each Large Envelope down behind the photo. Cut pieces of patterned paper slightly larger than the Large Envelopes. Remove the backing liner from a Large Envelope and press the patterned paper onto the self-adhesive back. Repeat for the second envelope. Use a pair of scissors to trim away the overhanging paper from the envelopes. Cut a piece of fabric tape to length and fold over the top of the book to hide the seam.

Step 4: Embellish the front cover of the photo book.




It is so fun to flip through this book! This is a wonderful inexpensive gift for Dad, but this project is easily adaptable for any special person or occasion throughout the year with a change of cover art.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’ll be back in a couple weeks sharing a festive home decor piece for the upcoming Independence Day holiday.
