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:

‘Love It’ Layout with E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser

Hi! I don't know about you, but for me this past week was long and busy, and by the time Friday rolled around I was in desperate need of some creative time. So, I made time to play! I left my work concerns at the door and thought only about my project, paper and all of the cute embellishments I had to match! I also turned on my favorite Pandora station and as my husband says, started 'cutting up paper and gluing it back together again' (he's so silly...glue? really?)! 

If you're making time to create today, let me help jump start your creativity by sharing a layout using the Fabulous Collection by Authentique Paper and the E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.


Every layer and embellishment on my layout has been adhered using the E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser – even the flowers! Not only does this adhesive hold all of my layers in place, it is strong enough to hold those heavier embellishments. It’s also super easy to refill – simply replace the cartridge – plus you get 150′ (that’s a lot of adhesive!).

Here are a few close-ups:

My Favorite Things and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog Hop

Welcome to the My Favorite Things and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog Hop


Hi! Today I’m sharing cute, simple treat bags that are perfect for your next summer cookout, gathering or party. 


I started by using the Die-namics Hello There die-cut to create my ‘hello’ and ‘hi’ sentiments. I placed my paper on our Adhesive Sheets 4”x6" for easy adhering. 

Next, I used the Die-namics Dainty Bows die-cut and the Dots & Stripes Fresh Paper Pack to make those adorable bows; I adhered my bows together with Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4″.



 


I cut a small piece of Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Denim Ribbons and wrapped it around the center of my bow. 



Finally, I cut 3.75”x4” rectangles from the Gingham Galore Paper Pack, scored and folded them in half. I filled small clear bags with a sweet treat and then placed my folded rectangles over the top and stapled them in place. I peeled the backing from my sentiments and adhered them, as well as my bows to each bag. That’s it – cute, simple and yummy!

‘A Little Something’ Shaker Card with 3D Foam Frames

Hi! Today I’m sharing a fun and simple way to use 3D Foam Frames to create a cute shaker card! Before I made this card I read and watched several tutorials to see how others were creating shaker cards. I was amazed at how complex the instructions seemed to be, I decided there had to be a simpler way…guess what? There is! The Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Frames are the perfect solution – check out my tutorial below!


I started by cutting a 4.25"x5.5” rectangle and adhered it to the base of my card using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser. I also cut a 3.75"x5” rectangle – creating a second layer – as well as a 3"x4” journaling card.


Next, I selected one of the 3D Foam Frames that fit the perimeter of the 3"x4” journaling card. Once the 3D Foam Frame was in place I sprinkled a few sequins onto the journaling card.


I then removed the paper covering from the 3D Foam Frames (i.e., the adhesive was showing) and placed a 3 x 4” transparency on top. I pressed the transparency down firmly ensuring it was completely adhered to the 3D Foam Frames – I didn’t want my sequins to escape!


I wanted to give my shaker piece a clean look so I placed Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/8″ Permanent along all four edges and then covered it with pattern paper. I considered my shaker complete and adhered it using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser to the 3.75"x5” rectangle. (Remember our E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser is really strong so it’s perfect for adhering those heavier items when creating).


To finish my card I tied a black and white checkered bow and added a white button. Finally, I adhered the 3.75"x 5” rectangle using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser to the base of my card.


That’s it! Not only is it simple it’s cute too!
