WindowRama Shaker Card Tutorial

Hi friends! Dana here today sharing how to use the Stampendous WindowRama Dome Jar Shaker Cutting Dies to create a dimensional dome shaker card.

Typically, I am not a card maker. In fact, I usually struggle with more complicated card designs. I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to put this fun shaker card together using the helpful instructions and some of my favorite adhesive products.

WindowRama Shaker Card Tutorial by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

WindowRama Dome Shaker Card Cuts

I modified my design slightly for patterned paper lovers. In order for the window to reveal a cloudy sky pattern, I needed to cut an additional piece of paper to fit inside the back panel. The second print on the backside of striped patterned paper is visible on the inside edges of the card when folded flat.

  1. Die-cut two patterned paper pieces with the WindowRama Die 1. Create the flaps for the front stripe and back yellow panels for the card. Die-cut an additional piece from sky patterned paper and trim off the flaps. Secure it to the center of the back yellow panel (front side).
  2. To create a window, place WindowRama Die 7 in the center of the front stripe panel and die-cut.
  3. For the glass dome base, die-cut with Die 10 and woodgrain patterned paper. The base plaque is die-cut with Die 11 and white cardstock.
  4. Lastly, die-cut with Die 15 and clear acetate twice to make the outer shaker frames.

WindowRama Shaker Card Assembly

5. For the shaker feature, apply 3D Foam Strips around the edge of one acetate piece and add a butterfly die cut and glass glitter inside. On the second acetate, add Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8in. on the edges with the top liner on. Sandwich the two acetates with the 3D Foam Strip to seal.
6. Peel the top liner from the shaker and press it onto the backside of the front card panel.
7. Stamp a sentiment onto the oval plaque and attached it to the glass dome base using E-Z Runner Ultra-Strong Refillable Dispenser.
8. Attach the base to the card front, covering the bottom curve of the window with Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8in. Sandwich the front and back panels with 1/2-inch Premium Double-Sided Tape.

Shaker Card Details

It’s the details that count. Two colors of glass glitter were added inside the shaker to complement the cloud patterned paper inside the card. In addition, a small piece of Extreme Double-Sided Tape secured the butterfly die cut to the back of the shaker so it would always be in flight.

Furthermore, the oval plaque has two holes for brads but I used adhesive pearls instead. Either option looks great!

I hope I have inspired you to try creating dimensional shaker cards. In addition to a dome shaker, this die set also cuts mason jar and gumball machine windows that are fun to use to create cards with or without a shaker feature.

Wonky Embossed Squares Congrats Card

Hello crafty friends! I had fun putting together this congrats card with a wonky embossed squares background. With E-Z Squares® Refillable Dispenser and chunky metallic embossing powder, it’s so easy to do.

Wonky Embossed Squares Congrats Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Wonky Embossed Square Card Steps

Start with a 3.625 x 8.625-inch slimline card base cut from Kraft cardstock. Make a 3.5 x 8.5-inch card panel out of dark blue cardstock.

Randomly roll the E-Z Squares® Refillable Dispenser across the dark blue card panel to create a pattern similar to the image shown.

Wonky Embossed Squares Congrats Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Pour Chunky Metallic Seasonings Embossing Enamel over the square adhesive. Press onto squares with fingers to secure and tap off excess.

Wonky Embossed Squares Congrats Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Use a heating tool to melt embossing enamel. Some will melt and some not but that’s OK, it was a look I was going for. Cut off squares that extend beyond the edge.

A Little Detailing

Use a white pen to outline squares to anchor the design against the dark background.

College Visit Scrapbook Layout

Hi there Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Fans! Christine Meyer joining you today with a grown boy layout – a college visit. To really make it awesome I did a technique showcasing the E-Z Squares® Refillable Dispenser to create a unique background!

College Visit Scrapbook Layout by Christine Meyer For Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Sometimes you have great products but you just want to make a fun background. Have you ever thought about ways to make a background using adhesives? Although I have done it several times (including earlier this month) – I’ve never done one with the E-Z Squares® but they were the perfect product to Wear Your Adhesive Outside!

E-Z Squares Background

College Visit Scrapbook Layout by Christine Meyer For Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To create this background, I just ran the E-Z Squares® Refillable Dispenser up and down the page creating angled lines of varying heights. Then I added embossing powder, heated it up, and voila! A super easy background that didn’t require any special tricks or time to create!

Other Adhesives on this Layout

College Visit Scrapbook Layout by Christine Meyer For Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

With a bold background on this college visit layout, I knew I wasn’t going to need to add a lot! Crafty Foam Tape, 3D Foam Squares, and of course the E-Z Runner® Grand all combine to create layers of fun!

College Visit Scrapbook Layout by Christine Meyer For Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Here you can see how the layers came together to create a final bold and colorful topping to this fun background.

You can check out the entire process for this layout and made this background in the video below. And, spoiler alert, if you like the idea but want it less bold, you’ll get a sneak peek into my layout that will be coming up here next! I’ll be doing the same technique but with a more subtle feel!

Halloween Nugget Treat Holders

Hello! Sheri here, and today I have an adorable easy Halloween Nugget Treat Holder tutorial. These would make great little gifts for the office too. Halloween isn’t just for kids, right? Let me share how I created these!

Halloween Nugget Treat Holders by Sheri Holt for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Halloween Nugget Treat Holder Steps

For each treat holder, you will need to cut a piece of 3” x 6” patterned cardstock for the base. Cut two strips of 1” x 3” cardstock to wrap your nuggets. FYI, one 12 x 12″ sheet of cardstock will make six treat holders.

With the 3 x 6-inch patterned cardstock base, score 2 1/2” and 3 1/3” on the long (6″) side. Fold to create a flat base. Round the corners and punched a hole for the ribbon.

Designer’s Tip: Make the ribbon opening fun with a shaped hole puncher or even staple the ribbon to the holder to close it.

Halloween Nugget Treat Holders by Sheri Holt for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Wrap the 1″ x 3″ strip of patterned paper around each nugget. Seal the end with an Adhesive Line. I think they are my new favorite thing! These Adhesive Lines are the perfect size to fit the 1” wide strip. Also, the lines can be used to hold the candies in place on the base of the holder.

Halloween Nugget Treat Holders by Sheri Holt for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Lastly, attach a sentiment, ribbon, and your favorite character on the front with 3D Foam Squares for a fun dimension.

Halloween Nugget Treat Holders by Sheri Holt for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

This project couldn’t be any easier – just add fun two-sided patterned papers like this Halloween collection!

Layered Butterflies Friendship Cards

Hi, everyone! How about adding pretty layered butterflies to your handmade cards? Teri here, and I’m going to show you a fun way to do just that with a twist!

These butterflies can be made quickly with just a few basic paper crafting supplies, and they look awesome when added to cards. Let’s get started!

Layered Butterflies Friendship Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Layered Butterflies Basics

Start by cutting a piece of foam from a 3D Foam Creative Sheets Medium White. Cover it with lightweight cardstock.

Then die-cut some butterflies from it. Any solid butterfly die will work!

Designer’s Note: Use a little Washi tape to hold the die in place while you cut so it doesn’t shift around if you need to run it through your machine more than once.

You’ll also want to cut some butterflies from vellum.

Layered Butterflies Friendship Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Assembling the Butterflies

Layered Butterflies Friendship Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place an Adhesive Line in the middle of each foam butterfly. Center a vellum butterfly on top. You can keep the vellum flat or you can curl the edges with your fingers.

Layered Butterflies Friendship Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

For the butterfly center, wrap twine or jute around the middle. Tie a knot at the top. Snip off the ends of the twine with your scissors. If you leave a little twine at the ends, it will make the butterflies look like they have antennae!

Layered Butterflies Friendship Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Simply remove the backing paper and adhere them to your cards! It adds a sweet dimensional element that your friends will love.

Layered Butterflies with Sequins

You are not limited to using twine to decorate your butterflies!

Layered Butterflies Friendship Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Rather than twine, I used Adhesive Lines on these butterflies for my second card before placing a line of sequins onto it.

Layered Butterflies Friendship Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The sequins add a hint of glitz to the card if I do say so! Not a fan of sequins? Trying using gems or beads instead!

Layered Butterflies Friendship Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Bonus: Creating Backgrounds for the Layered Butterflies Cards

One more tip I wanted to give you! Notice the backgrounds on both cards? Take a stencil and ink to create them!

To keep the stencil from shifting while applying ink, I rolled E-Z Dots® Repositionable adhesive to it. This helps hold it in place without damaging the cardstock as I sponged ink through the stencil design!

Layered Butterflies Friendship Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Thank you for checking out today’s tutorial. I hope you might try making a few layered butterflies of your own! Let me know if you do!

Happy crafting,
Teri Anderson

You Rock Foam Circle Layout

Hello scrapbooking friends, Tracy here. Today, I have a fun Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside technique with a pretty foam circle layout. Accented with foil, it really makes the page shine! Let me show you all of the details.

You Rock Foam Circle Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Create a Foam Circle Layout Design

Center white cardstock over a patterned paper using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.

Cut a large circle from patterned paper and attach it to the middle of the layout with the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.

Mat the cropped photo in white cardstock and place toward the bottom right of the circle with 3D Foam Squares White Mix.

You Rock Foam Circle Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Add the title stickers, one directly onto the circle, and lift the other with 3D Foam Squares White Mix.

You Rock Foam Circle Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Foam Circle Design

Start the Foam Circle by adding the large 3D Foam Circles White Mix, all around the center patterned circle.

You Rock Foam Circle Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Next, place the smaller 3D Foam Circles in between the large ones.

You Rock Foam Circle Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

For a sunburst-inspired look, I added the small 3D Foam Circles out from the large circles.

You Rock Foam Circle Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside

Remove the backing from the first row of small 3D Foam Circles. Then place a piece of purple foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Variety Colors over the circle with the color side facing you, and gently rub with your fingertip to transfer the color.

You Rock Foam Circle Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Remove the backing from the large 3D Foam Circles and add teal foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Variety Colors, repeating the above steps.

You Rock Foam Circle Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

There was still more space in my circle design so I decided to add more small 3D Foam Circles. Those additions were foiled in the blue foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Variety Colors.

The remaining 3D Foam Circles were foiled in the purple foil from the same foil set.

Adding Embellishments

Finally, I added triangles in the corners of the white cardstock to anchor the page. Then placed some simple embellishments around the matted photo using a combination of 3D Foam Squares White Mix and Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix.

Doggone Cute Birthday Card

Hi everyone, Yvonne here with a doggone cute dimensional birthday card. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® 3D Foam Products are the best to add that little bit of extra dimension to your card.

Doggone Cute Birthday Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I know it may look a bit complicated, but even a beginning card maker can create this card! Let me show you how I made it.

Doggone Cute Grass Layers

Die-cut several grass borders from two shades of green cardstock. Then ink the edges of the grass with green ink. Simply rub the ink over the edges directly from the ink and let dry to prevent staining.

Doggone Cute Birthday Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix to the back of the grass borders but leave the liners on. Determine your layout design first before removing the liners. Start adhering the bottom layer to a piece of soft blue card panel, then the middle layer, and finally, the top layer.

Doggone Cute Birthday Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
Doggone Cute Birthday Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Create the Card Base

Create a top-folding card with white cardstock that is slightly larger than the card panel you have just created. Then adhere the grass card panel onto the card base with the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.

Make the Clouds

Die-cut and emboss several clouds from white cardstock. For a dimensional sky, I used a combination of 3D Foam Squares White Mix and Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix. This way the clouds look more realistic. For some extra fun, let the clouds overlap the top (blue) layer a bit.

Those Doggone Cute Doggies

First, fussy cut the cute dogs from the designs in the patterned paper. To cut out the detailed dogs  I used tiny scissors, but you could also use a sharp craft knife.

When finished cutting, adhere the dog shapes on and between the grass layers using Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix for interest and dimension.

Doggone Cute Birthday Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Finishing the Card

Stamp the happy birthday sentiment on white cardstock and cut with its matching die. Adhere the sentiment to the card using 3D Foam Squares White Mix.

Finally, finish the card by adhering some tiny rhinestones to the dog collars for a subtle and fun spark. And…voila…your Doggone Cute dimensional birthday card is ready.

Doggone Cute Birthday Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I hope you enjoyed this card making tutorial and wish you happy crafting!

E-Z Squares Accent Album Binding

Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a fun summer mini album. I used the Photo Play Paper Wild Honey Collection, a sweet combination of beautiful florals and bee-inspired patterns, to decorate the inside of the album. To bring some of the colors out to the album cover, I stitched embellished E-Z Squares® onto the binding fabric for a touch of sparkle.

E-Z Squares Accent Album Binding by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
E-Z Squares Accent Album Binding by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Apply Pigment Powder to E-Z Squares

E-Z Squares Accent Album Binding by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

E-Z Squares® are ready to accept pigment powder directly out of the dispenser – no primer medium is required. Simply apply the E-Z Squares to the album binding. Use a soft brush to load and apply the pigment powder to the E-Z Squares.

Next, thread a needle with floss and tie a knot at the end of the string. Slide a sequin onto the floss and stitch it onto the album binding into the center of an E-Z Squares®. Tie a knot on the inside of the album to secure the sequin and cut excess floss.

Repeat this stitching process until each E-Z Squares® has a stitched sequin embellishment and you get the desired look.

Adding Dimension with Adhesive

E-Z Squares Accent Album Binding by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Use Creative Photo Corners to accent photos in mini albums. These self-adhesive embossed corners are a great way to add texture to a page when space is limited. I like the mixed package, which includes a variety of colors: Black, White, Gold, Silver, Kraft, and Ivory, conveniently packaged on strips.

E-Z Squares Accent Album Binding by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To keep my album spreads from looking flat, I used 3D Foam Squares Small to secure die-cuts to several pages. The high-density foam will not crush, so the dimension will be seen for years to come. I always reach for 3D Foam when I’m designing with patterned papers of the same color, like those shown above, to help define the layers of patterned paper.

I hope to have inspired you to use E-Z Squares® Refillable Dispenser on the outside of your projects.
