One Paper, Two Cards: Happy and Hello

Hi crafters! Valerie here today, and I’d like to show you how to create two cards out of a single piece of patterned paper. These Happy and Hello cards are so easy to make for any occasion!

One Paper, Two Cards: Happy and Hello by Valerie Ward for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

2 Cards from One Sheet of Paper

First, select a sheet of patterned paper. Get out two 3D Foam Creative Sheets or the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit: 

One Paper, Two Cards: Happy and Hello by Valerie Ward for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

On the back side of the patterned paper, adhere a full 3D Foam Creative Sheet, and then trim the second sheet and add it at the side and the bottom of the first piece of Creative Sheet, to make it big enough to fit the die you’ll be using.

Position the grid die on the front of the patterned paper and die cut.

Note: THIS IMAGE SHOWS IT APPLIED OVER THE TAPE, BUT YOU ACTUALLY NEED TO LAY THE DIE OVER THE FRONT OF THE PAPER

Here are the pieces you’ll get:

The rest is very simple! Peel off the liner from the pieces to reveal the adhesive of the 3D Foam Creative Sheets. Now just adhere the pieces onto the card fronts!

Stamp, die cut and color some small images, here I have cute kitties. They’ll fit inside the die cut frame.

I used my E-Z Runner Permanent Fine Adhesive Dispenser to adhere the cute kitty images.

Stamp, color and die cut another set of images. Adhere them to the squares and arrange them on a card front. You can use the die to line up the squares precisely.

I used a black paper to die cut the sentiments. Glue them with the Dual Tip Glue Pen. It has a fine tip that lets me get just enough clear glue on intricate embellishments without adding to much!

Black 3D Foam Circles Card Set

Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing how I created a dimensional card set using Black 3D Foam Circles. I used the entire sheet of adhesive. One card features all of the 3D Foam Circles. The other card highlights a fun stitching technique that uses the 3D Foam negative sheet.

Positive and Negative Black 3D Foam Circle Card Set by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
I’m pleased with the high contrast that layering color onto a black base produces. I covered the foam adhesive with a black glittered flock that adds a subtle sparkle and a softness that is fun to touch.

How to Create a Dimensional Card with Black 3D Foam Circles

Positive and Negative Black 3D Foam Circle Card Set by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Step 1. Peel the liner from all of the circles on a sheet of Small Black 3D Foam Circles. Press the sheet of adhesive onto the front of a black card base that is about 1/4-inch larger than the adhesive sheet. Apply firm pressure to transfer the foam circles to the card. Carefully peel the adhesive sheet (negative) away from the card front.

Step 2. Cover the black circles with black glittered flock. Use a soft brush to help spread and stick the flock to the adhesive.

Step 3. Stamp and die-cut a toad, some clusters of hearts, and a sentiment for the front of the card. Color the stamped images. Optional: Highlight the die-cuts with dimensional glaze and glitter.

Step 4. Attach the colored die-cuts and the sentiment to the front of the card using HomeHobby™ 1/8-inch Extreme Double-Sided Tape.

Positive and Negative Black 3D Foam Circle Card Set by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

This toad makes me happy! I used the Toad-ally Awesome Clear Stamp Set (CS-282) and the Toad-ally Awesome Die-Namics Die Set (MFT-1303) from My Favorite Things for this card.

Step 3. Add rows of color to the remaining portion of the negative sheet using colorful floss and a chain stitch.

Step 4. Peel the remaining liner from the back of the negative sheet. Press the stitched embellishment onto the front of a black card base. Use HomeHobby™ 1/8-inch Extreme Double-Sided Tape to attach a cardstock sentiment to the front of the card.

I had a lot of fun stitching this piece! I will definitely try this technique again in a different pattern, maybe on a white negative. I’d like to try stitching with ribbon on a Regular size negative sheet.

Mosaic Heart with 3D Foam Squares

Hi everyone, Christine here today with a mosaic heart card made entirely with  3D Foam Squares White Regular.

Mosaic Heart with 3D Foam Squares by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

A Mosaic Heart Tutorial

Firstly cut through the 3D Foam Squares White Regular diagonally to create triangles. Tip: try to keep them as even as possible, it really helps when building your mosaic design.

Mosaic Heart with 3D Foam Squares by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Next, remove the top sheets to expose the sticky surface and cover with embossing powder, tap off the excess and set with a heat gun.  It sets really quickly and creates a lovely surface.

Mosaic Heart with 3D Foam Squares by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Prepare more 3D Foam Squares White Regular with different color embossing powders.

Mosaic Heart with 3D Foam Squares by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Take a piece of craft card and begin to make out your design.  I used a ruler to align the first triangles.

Mosaic Heart with 3D Foam Squares by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Keep building the pattern with different colors. I particularly like this pastel color combination of pink, gold and silver.  You could of course go for bold and bright.

I chose a geometric heart, there are many patterns available.

DIY Summertime Pinwheel Wreath

Summertime is upon us and if you’re in need of a refreshing DIY project sure to brighten up the long, hot days then you’re in luck! Hi friends, Linsey here today sharing a fun craft perfect for getting the kids off the couch and be creative! Come along and see how I made this fresh and fun pinwheel wreath!

DIY Summertime Pinwheel Wreath by Linsey Rickett for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

There is some great pinwheel wreath inspiration on Pinterest and I was inspired by it all! My wreath came together rather easily using a few different Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and this cheerful summertime-themed paper collection.

Making Summertime Pinwheels

Using various summer themed patterned papers, I cut 4 x 4″ squares to make a total of approximately 20-22 squares for a small wreath form.

Next, fold squares in half to make a triangle and then unfold. Repeat on opposite side.

Cut each of the 4 corners about 1/2 to the center using the fold lines as a guide. Now fold every other corner and adhere to the center with  E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser and E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill.

Did you know it takes seconds to refill our E-Z Runner Grand Dispensers? View a short view on How to Use and Refill the E-Z Runner Grand Dispensers.

A center decoration is optional and I chose to add brightly colored gem circles to the centers of all my pinwheels. The Adhesive Dots Micro were the perfect size for the gem circles and they adhered to the center of each pinwheel.

Creating the Wreath

The wreath form was covered with Adhesive Sheets 12×12 inch and the pinwheels arranged and adhered accordingly.

Placing a single row of pinwheels around the form is ok, but I placed my pinwheels in 2 rows, leaving a few gaps for the ribbons and chipboard title embellishment to be added with 3D Foam Circles White Mix and 3D Foam Squares White Mix. This simply makes for a more full wreath and either way will look great!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope my festive summertime pinwheel wreath has you spinning with inspiration and ideas for making your very own! Until next time, happy crafting!

How to Add A Shaker Element to a Scrapbook Layout

What is one thing you look to achieve as you are designing a scrapbook layout?  Of course, there are the memories being captured and the photos shining, but when you go beyond that, what’s your design goal.  For me, it’s always to add a unique touch to my layout, a clever twist that the audience perhaps hasn’t seen before!  Today I am going to share with you how I used the Keepsake Envelopes to accomplish that goal.  Check them out on this beach layout where I turned them into a Sunshine Shaker.

How to Add a Shaker Element to a Scrapbook Layout using Keepsake Envelopes from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
Shaker Elements can add a touch of whimsy to a layout.  In this case, I created my photo block and the central focus of my layout but knew I needed something extra to really make my layout stand out.  I used a circle cutter and just cut out a small circle.

After I cut the circle I backed it with a Keepsake Envelope.  I backed the Keepsake Envelope with Yellow Cardstock (the same one that I used for my sunrays) and filled it with golden glitter.  I secured it to the back of my layout using my E-Z Runner Grand.  It’s not as complicated as it sounds in writing!  Check out my full process video for a quick walk thru of it:

Shaker Element Process Video

Beyond the Keepsake Envelopes, I used a couple additional adhesives to really pull this layout together. I used my Dual Tip Glue Pen to secure all my sunrays.  Additionally, I made my chipboard elements and my photos pop up a little bit more using Crafty Foam Tape and  3D Foam Squares .  Of course, you’d be hard pressed to find me creating without my E-Z Runner Grand close at hand – that is my go-to piece most days!

Thanks so much for joining me today – be sure to share with us if you create a Shaker Element on your Scrapbook Layouts – we’d love to see your twist on it!

Hello Hugs Layout with Adhesive Lines

Good morning, Shannon here, sharing a layout using Adhesive Lines today! There were a lot of milestones to document this year for our family – Mack’s graduation and official entry into high school were one of them.

Pictures of family are my favorite to document.  Mack and Ba (my mom) certainly made this picture special. Highlighting the photo became the focus of my layout. Specifically choosing and using bright colors and simple layers is a great way to highlight the photo. You too can create a similar layout if you apply some of the tips I am sharing today.

Hello Hugs Layout with Adhesive Lines by Shannon Morgan for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Framing the Layout

You’ll need to gather some basic scrapping supplies, like papers, embellishments and of course adhesives. I started out, weeding through my stash and picking things that I had hoarded. Don’t wait for that perfect layout, card or project, use your supplies!

First of all, let’s get started using those Adhesive Lines.  Have you ever wondered what to do with those paper strips at the bottom of your 12X12 sheets of paper? They make great “frames”, as in, framing out a layout. Even better? I adhere the strips a little off center, ensuring that it’s ok to be “perfectly imperfect”.

The Adhesive Lines are a perfect tool to get this framing done. In addition to being a great detail that packs a lot of punch, this “framing” truly helps you line up your photo as well. Tip: If you’d like your framing strips to match, simply cut strips of a patterned paper or cardstock of your choice.

Layering Your Photo

The photo needed to be the stand out in this layout, complimenting the title. Simple layering is/was the key to this. You’ll notice in the photo, I used complimentary patterns in different colors, primarily creating visual interest and dimension. The photo is oddly sized, for the reason that it was taken on a phone and not with a camera. There are a total of five layers backing the photo, ideally, this is personal preference, you can simply use my example as a guide or inspiration.

Using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser, of course makes layering a snap. If you are happy with your layers, adhere the photo to the layout. Additionally, you can begin to work on the rest of your details. There was space deliberately left to the side of the photo for a large title.

Adding Details

In order to keep it simple, yet detailed, the title is big. Coupled with bright colors and 3D Foam Squares, this title draws your eye to the photo. Once you have the title adhered, begin adding additional touches. Details matter, add as many or as little as you’d prefer, your projects are uniquely you.

Close Ups

3D Foam Squares in detail, certainly add the right pop needed for the layout. At this angle, you can also see the layers I shared with you before.

Now that I’ve shared all these tips and photos with you, create something beautiful!

Forecast: Snow Flurries & A Reindeer

Happy Saturday!  Shellye McDaniel along today with a Christmas in July Forecast: Snow Flurries & A Reindeer…a themed card that is!  It’s never too late to start working on your Christmas cards and this one is a doll!

Forecast: Snow Flurries & A Reindeer by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Snow Card Basics

On a 5 x 7″ card base, I attached a 4.75 x 6.75″ card panel to the card base, using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser loaded with the E-Z Runner® Grand Permanent Dots Refill. This is my go-to for card-making!

Here’s a short view on How to Use and Refill E-Z Runner Grand Dispensers

Then I’ve attached a 4.25 x 6.25″ black/white trees patterned paper with Crafty Foam Tape Black (13′). I used several strips of the Crafty Foam Tape to prevent the paper from collapsing between the strips.

Next, I added the beautiful snowflake printed vellum that was burnished. When you attach vellum, it can be a little tricky. I chose to place different sized 3D Foam Berries (from the 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit) over the center of each snowflake.

To embellish the centers of the snowflakes, I used various sizes of Adhesive Dots (Adhesive Dots SmallMedium, and  Large).

After removing the protective film from the Adhesive Dots, I sprinkled iridescent glitter over the tops. Just press the glitter to secure and tap off the excess. Love the results – beautiful sparkly snow!

Finishing Up

Lastly, I further embellished the card with a cute reindeer that I had stamped and watercolored.  To attach the reindeer, I used the 3D Foam Circles White Mix, along with other die-cuts.  I placed a 3D Foam Star (from the 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit) and added silver glitter to the top of it, just below the bow.

For the most part, using vellum is easy, especially when you have great adhesive options from Scrapbook Adhesives!

Dimensional Brushstroke Flowers Hello Card

Today I’m sharing a dimensional card using a mix of 3D Foam Squares – White Mix and Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix to bring cheer to someone special. There’s a nice variance of dimension when using both 3D Foam Squares and Thin 3D Foam Squares 🙂

Dimensional Brushstroke Flowers Hello Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Create a Dimensional Card

Start with a 4.5 x 6.5 inch white card base and cut printed paper to fit card front. Next, angle cut black cardstock across the card front. Then cut a green mat to layer behind black cardstock.

Fasten all together and to card front with E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner® Grand Permanent Dots Refill.

It’s so easy to switch out the refills to use your favorite adhesive! Take a look at this quick view on How to Use and Refill an E-Z Runner Grand Dispensers below.

Stamp all the brushstroke flowers and leaves and die cut them with coordinating dies.  Apply 3D Foam Squares – White Mix to some flowers and Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix to others for different levels of dimension.

The Embellished Details

Arrange flowers and leaves on the card.  Use E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner® Grand Permanent Dots Refill to fasten branches. Fasten flowers. Use Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix to fasten individual leaves.

Stamp “a note to say” and “hello” with black ink.  Trim around each one. Apply Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix to back of “a note to say”.

Use 3D Foam Squares – White Mix on back of “hello”.  This gives a little different dimension to make “hello” stand out more.

Fasten both to the card front and it’s ready to be sent!
