Christmas Diorama Shadowbox by Shellye McDaniel

From the moment that I saw the Deep Square Matchbook Box, I knew that I wanted to make a light-up Christmas Diorama coupled with the sweet Christmas Magic Collection.

Christmas Diorama Shadowbox by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Christmas Inspiration Week with Graphic 45

To begin, I traced a battery-operated tea light onto the top (inside) of the box and cut out with a Xacto knife.  Next, I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4″ around the base of the light and inserted it into the hole.

Christmas Diorama Shadowbox by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Christmas Inspiration Week with Graphic 45

To cover the box, I used one of the red/cream striped papers from the collection kit and adhered it with Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2″. Make sure to create an opening in the front of the box.

For the fun part, I cut apart matching journal cards and layered the cut-out portion to the full rendition with 3D Foam Squares White Mix.  Two bottle-brush style trees were added to the inside with Adhesive Dots 3D.

Christmas Diorama Shadowbox by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Christmas Inspiration Week with Graphic 45

When I want to turn on the light, I simply slide the box out and flip the switch!  Adorable in a child’s bedroom or end table and what a fun conversation piece! On my blog, I have a step-by-step tutorial so CLICK: Christmas Diorama Shadow Box Project.

Wonderful Christmas Keepsake Box by Teri Burson

I created this lovely decorative box with compartments for storing your favorite keepsakes, craft supplies or jewelry.  The beautiful patterned papers from the Twelve Days of Christmas Collection were used to cover the Ivory Book Box.

Wonderful Christmas Keepsake Box by Terri Burson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Christmas Inspiration Week with Graphic 45

I fussy cut some of the rose clusters and decorated with my Dual Tip Glue Pen and crystal glitter.  I also added a chipboard button embellishment with burlap string, using the 3D Foam Circles Black Mix for my button layers.

All of my paper was trimmed and adhered with my E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser and inserted E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill.

Wonderful Christmas Keepsake Box by Terri Burson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Christmas Inspiration Week with Graphic 45

Inside my box, I created a faux mirror, using the silver foil in the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit and running it through my die cut machine with an oval-shaped die.  A sticker is adhered just below the mirror, popped up with a strip of Crafty Foam Tape Black for added dimension.

Additional glue from my Dual Tip Glue Pen is used to edge my box, with gold glitter generously applied. The final accents to my decorative box are the Graphic 45 Antique Metal Door Pull, plus mini floral ribbon wrapped around my base.

Handmade Merry Banner by Valerie Ward

For my project featuring Graphic 45’s gorgeous Christmas Magic Collection, I created a banner for my fireplace!

Handmade Merry Banner by Valerie Ward for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Christmas Inspiration Week with Graphic 45

I used a banner punch board to create all the varying banner sizes that I needed. To adhere all the different layers of paper together, I used my E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser with the E-Z Runner® Grand Permanent Strips Refill cartridge.

The letters were cut from craft dies, glued together with the Dual Tip Glue Pen, and attached with E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill adhesive to paper rosettes which were assembled with Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/8 in., then attached to die cut circles using the same Ultra Strong Refill adhesive (which are then attached to the die cut scalloped circle shapes).

Handmade Merry Banner by Valerie Ward for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Christmas Inspiration Week with Graphic 45

All of the floral bling is adhered to the banner pieces using Adhesive Dots Small and Adhesive Dots Large. My final step was to punch circles in the upper corners of each banner piece with a circle punch, and string tinsel ribbon through them.

Holiday Magic Tag and Card Set by Teri Anderson

Hi, everyone! Like the vintage look? It’s easy to put together a cool set of vintage-inspired Christmas tags and cards with products from Graphic 45 and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Holiday Magic Tag and Card Set by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Christmas Inspiration Week with Graphic 45

Cut two bases for tags from cardstock. Apply several strips of patterned paper to them and then dry brush some white paint along the edges of the tags and the paper seams. Give the tags a little glitz by applying a strip of Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 inch to each tag. Remove the red backing and apply glitter onto the line of tape.

Holiday Magic Tag and Card Set by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Christmas Inspiration Week with Graphic 45

Complete the tags by adding some embellishments created by stacking chipboard and sticker accents together. Want the embellishments to have a bit of sparkle? Simply roll an E-Z Dots Permanent Refillable Dispenser along their edges and dip them in glitter. Complete your tags by punching holes in the top of them and then adding some twine!

Holiday Magic Tag and Card Set by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Christmas Inspiration Week with Graphic 45

To make a card to go with your tags, create a card base from cardstock. Then repeat the steps you did to make the tags. The only thing you will not do is poke a hole in the top of the card!

It’s a Gift Card … Card!

Hi everyone, Christine here today with a card that also features a secret gift card.  It’s easily made with Crafty Foam Tape and makes a regular card that little bit more special.

It's a Gift Card ... Card! by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Creating the Gift Card Holder

Cut a piece of patterned paper slightly smaller than your A2-size (4.25 x 5.50-inch) white card base. This is your card panel. Using a shaped etched die, center it on the right side edge of the patterned paper. I secured the die with washi tape to avoid shifting. Then cut with a die cutting machine. Designer Note: you can also use a punch or hand cut.

It's a Gift Card...Card! by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

On the back of the cut card panel, position your gift card and place strips of Crafty Foam Tape around three edges. Make sure to give it a little wiggle room. This creates the pocket to hold the gift card.

It's a Gift Card...Card! by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Apply more Crafty Foam Tape around the card panel and affix it to the card base.

It's a Gift Card...Card! by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Use several decorative die cuts in various cardstock to layer and embellish the card panel. Stamp a sentiment on white cardstock, and die-cut over it with a narrow rectangle die. Place several 3D Foam Squares White Small behind the sentiment and adhere to the card panel.

It's a Gift Card...Card! by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Here’s a second look at the card with the gift card peeking out from the side.

DIY Thanksgiving Traveler’s Notebook Part 2

Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today. I’m sharing a look inside my complete DIY Thanksgiving Traveler’s Notebook. This is my first album documenting my Thanksgiving holiday and the notebook approach was a quick and fun way to record my memories.

I shared my DIY Thanksgiving Traveler’s Notebook Tutorial last month, so please start there if you missed it. I show you how to create the notebook.

A Look Inside a Thanksgiving Traveler’s Notebook Insert

Give Thanks Travelers Notebook Insert with Family Photo Cover Page

I embellished the cover page of my insert with a journaling card, a die-cut label, and a family photo. I used the E-Z Runner Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser to secure the photos and cards to this album. The Thin 3D Foam Squares were the perfect size to adhere, and slightly raise, die-cuts for added dimension in a size-restricted book.

Sequin Shaker Pocket Made with Keepsake Envelopes

I added several different sizes of Keepsake Envelopes between the notebook pages. Two of the same sized Keepsake Envelopes can be stuck back to back to create pocket pages. I placed a chipboard sticker inside the front facing Keepsake Envelope (top photo). Then, I filled the rear facing envelope with sequins (bottom photo). To ensure that the sequins stayed in place, I sealed the envelope with Extreme Double-Sided Tape.

Flip Cards Travelers Notebook Insert with Keepsake Envelope Flaps

Use the flaps from the keepsake envelopes shown above to create a 2-sided flip card. I left the flap exposed (top photo) as a reference. I used the E-Z Runner Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser to secure the cards to the flaps. For a seamless design (bottom photo), sandwich the envelope flaps between the cards.

Give Thanks Menu 2-Sided Keepsake Envelope Flip Page for Travelers Notebook

I created a 2-sided card to slip inside a second, larger, Keepsake Envelope. I sealed the card inside the envelope with a strip of patterned paper and the E-Z Runner Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.

Foiled Coffee Cups Holiday Gift Card Holder by Christine Meyer

As complicated as this card may look, it’s actually fairly simple to put together.

Here is a close up of the card. Love how the foil just makes this card pop!

Foiled Coffee Cups Holiday Gift Card Holder by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I used Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4-inch along the edges of my card.  Then I added red foil to the top from the 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit. I also added Creative Photo Corners Gold to the corners to accent the patterned paper and vellum off the card a little bit.

Foiled Coffee Cups Holiday Gift Card Holder by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Let’s take a look at those coffee mugs!  The foil was added to them using a combination of Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4-inch and Adhesive Dots in various sizes.  When you Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside (click to see), it is an easy way to add creativity to an otherwise plain product!

Lastly, before adding on the coffee mugs, I housed the gift card in a medium size Keepsake Envelope. These envelopes are clear and have adhesive on the entire back-side so it doesn’t interfere with the design of my card. Perfect 🙂

Thanks so much for joining us today and be sure to continue along with the hop!

Creating an Advent Journal Cover Tutorial

Every year, every single year, I aspire to create this ridiculously amazing December Daily journal, and every year I fail….miserably so. This year, I realized, that I focus too much on the perfection of the holidays and not the actual reason for this season every year.

So, I shifted my focus. I am creating an Advent journal this year. I’ll be sharing it throughout the season with you as I fill it.

Making the Advent Journal Cover

Today I am sharing with you how I created the cover. These are the supplies that I gathered. By doing this first step, I am inspired by odd things collected and this time it was a song lyric.

Measure the journal to determine the size of the journal base and cut one out of patterned paper. My choice was a star patterned paper which I adhered to the journal using my E-Z Grand Runner.

Adding Layers

Add the layers one by one. First, I started with the left side of the journal. As you can see, there is a combination of tabs, a border for a little bit of interest and washi tape. See – odd stuff! LOL!

In adding the next layer, I wanted some contrast. My “go-to” is something “whispy” which come in a form of tracing paper or vellum.

So I sandwich a piece of tracing paper between a scrap piece of patterned paper and a wood veneer polaroid frame. I painted the frame white and used Adhesive Lines to secure the frame. The Adhesive Lines were perfect because of the narrow space of the frame 🙂

The polaroid frame layer was popped up with  3D Foam Squares!! I love these 3D Foam Squares!! I love them, I love them! Did I mention, I love them? LOL!!


Advent is all about — waiting in JOYFUL hope, of course. I needed to add this to my cover, also layer on a few embellishments. Look at how fun this is? A great motivator to inspire ME to work on MYSELF!

Here’s a close up of all the details to bring this cover together. Thank you for letting me share this with you.

To begin, I dressed all of the chipboard pages using the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill.  For larger pieces, I used the Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/2in.

Throughout the album, I was able to add dimension to stickers with the 3D Foam Squares  White Mix.

I gave the buttons a secure footing by attaching them with the Adhesive Dots 3D.

Next the sleeves of the SN@P! Album was filled with pre-cut cards.  I was able to further embellish them with numbers for the days, die-cuts and stickers.

I also created a pocket using the Crafty Foam Black Tape on three sides.  The top I left open so extra journal cards could be tucked inside.

After filling the sleeves and decorating the chipboard, I started layering the pages.  I alternated between a chipboard page, a plastic sleeve, and a die-cut page.

In finishing, I went back and added the die-cut numbers for the days.  Towards the end of the album, I made more room for Christmas Eve and Day photos!

Little White Church Holiday Decor

Looking to add a little something to your winter home decor? This Little White Church Holiday décor piece is a great addition! It’s festive for the holiday season but can stay up beyond as a winter decoration.  To assemble the church structure, I used Extreme Double-Sided Tape ¼ in and Extreme Double-Sided Tape ⅛ in. But I used Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6 inch to make the shingle layers easy – isn’t stunning? Loved how it turned out!

Church Basics

I used heavy cardstock in Kraft in my stash and painted it with white gesso. To cut this step out, use heavy white cardstock.

But before painting the pieces, I applied Extreme Double-Sided Tape ¼ in onto the tabs of church pieces. For the tabs on the steeple, Extreme Double-Sided Tape ⅛ in was used because they are very small and narrow. Then paint all the pieces with two coats of white gesso and set aside to dry.

It’s all in the Details

Apply Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6 inch to the back of gray cardstock. Then, die-cut all the roof pieces, windows, and door.

To add a variation of color and interest to the roof shingles, use an ink tool to ink along the edges with Distress Oxide ink.

To create the roof, overlap each layer and trim the edges as needed. Using Adhesive Sheets on the back made it so easy – just press in place!

Repeat the same process for steeple roof. Make sure to trim along an angle of each section. Because the shingle pieces near the point are so small, I recommend using Extreme Double-Sided Tape ⅛ in.

Fasten a ridge strip to the peak.  On each ridge strip, I applied 2 strips of Extreme Double-Sided Tape ¼ in for a secure hold.

All windows were fastened before the church was assembled.  So easy with Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6 inch on the back to simply remove adhesive backing and press window frame in place.

Cut translucent vellum to fit behind each window and the door. Fastened with E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser. Its narrow adhesive strip fit well along the tiny windows.

Putting the Church Together

To assemble the little white church, remove the backing from Extreme Double-Sided Tape on the tabs and press the ends together. Next, work on the roof tabs by pressing them in place to the church walls. Then the step and corner posts are fastened. Assemble the steeple without its roof and fastened to the church. Thread a small bell with string and hang in the steeple roof before it was placed on the steeple.

The little hinges and door handle on the door were hand drawn with a fine tip black marker. Wrap a pine twine around a tool handle to make a wreath.  Using the Adhesive Dots Micro twice, first the tiny bow on the wreath and then, the wreath is fastened to the door. Dry brush the white gesso onto vellum in windows and its frames to look like frost and snow.

Making a Scene

The little white church sits on a white foam core board circle. To achieve this, I traced around a 7-inch plate (to fit my tray) and cut foam core board with a craft knife. Using a light tan cardstock, I cut a “path” and fastened it to the foam core with E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser.

After I was happy with the placement of the trees, I fastened them in place with Adhesive Dots Ultra Thin.  A real tree branch was used to create a bare tree. Randomly paint white gesso on the branches and sprinkled glitter on it to look like snow.  For the “snow” on the pine trees, I achieved this look repeating the same process with the bare tree.

Once everything was arranged, white sand was spread over the foam core base and a little over the church. A powdery residue layer of sand added a dusty snowy look to the roof. A battery tea light can be placed inside the church by simply lifting it.

This project would be perfect for a table centerpiece because it looks good from all sides!
