'You + Me' Layout with Classic Christmas

Today I'm sharing a layout I created using the Classic Christmas Collection by Authentique Paper.



I layered at least 6 pieces of pattern paper from this Classic Christmas Collection. Whenever I can't choose my favorite pattern I just start layering!


I also cut out triangles to use as embellishments and added several coordinating stickers and sequins.


And, of course, no layout is complete without a few flowers! I added a pair of poinsettias and small gold flowers.

BoBunny and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog Hop

Welcome to the BoBunny and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog Hop


Today I’m sharing a mini album I created using the Winter Wishes Collection by BoBunny and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products. 


I love capturing all of those cold, snowy winter moments which means I need a lot of space for photographs. To ensure I had enough I actually adhered two albums together using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L strongest tape – Extreme Double-Sided Tape ½”. This mini album can easily hold 24 photographs! Here's a look at the inside of my album (the white space accommodates a 4"x6" photograph):









I also used the E-Z Runner® Grand and DODZ Adhesive Dots Mini to securely hold my paper and embellishments in place, including my shear lace and tiny sequins.

Here are a few close-ups:

Graphic 45 and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog Hop

Welcome to the Graphic 45 and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog Hop


Looking for a way to capture and document your favorite travel memories? Today I'm sharing a mini album I created using the Cityscapes Collection by Graphic 45  and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products.


The Cityscapes Collection by Graphic 45 and the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Extreme Double-Sided Tape are a winning combination! I combined these products to create a mini album to hold my photos, memorabilia and journaling from a recent trip. I actually used all three sizes (1/8; 1/4; 1/2) of our strongest tape to adhere my paper and embellishments. Our Extreme Double-Sided Tape holds both those quality Graphic 45 pattern papers and chipboard pieces with ease.

Here are a few close-ups:
