Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: Creating a Woven Heart Valentine Scrapbook Page

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!! I'm on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog today :) Excited to share an 8.5 x 11" scrapbook page with a combination of E-Z Runner® Ultra, Creative Photo Corners and 3D Foam Hearts to create this woven heart page!

**As a part of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Design Team and Spellbinders® Paper Arts, I receive products for use in my projects. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience and doing so I can share what I personally love to use :) **

I start with cutting 0.75 x 6.0" of patterned papers. Line eight strips side by side and then weave one strip across (back and forth) to create one row. Repeat until you get to the top for a woven 6.0 x 6.0" piece. Set aside.

Take a piece of 8.5 x 11" white cardstock and hand drawn a heart shape. Then with a pair of scissors, fussy cut the shape out to create an open heart in the paper. If you used pen or marker like me, cut outside the line.

With red ink and applicator, ink the edges of the heart to give it depth.

Using the E-Z Runner® Ultra, I followed the curves of the heart to place my woven paper piece on top to adhere. Trim off excess and adhere any loose ends.

I cut pictures from my leftover Happy New Year photo card (it had a collage design). I matted with patterned paper and secured two with Creative Photo Corners White and one with E-Z Runner® Ultra.

To layer the background, I swiped my ink pad across my mat and misted water. Loaded my paint brush and flicked in the areas where I will place my sequins. My cut out heart was used to protect the woven area. Set aside to dry.

For my title, I grabbed my 3D Foam Hearts and foiled a large heart (with the shiny side up). See How to Use 3D Foam Hearts and Other Shapes video below.

Next for the letters, I placed patterned paper on top of my 3D Foam Creative Sheet (remove top liner first) and die-cut my dimensional letters. See How to Use 3D Foam Creative Sheets video below.

For the background, I placed my sequins randomly using the new Adhesive Dots Micro. An 1/8 inch clear double-side adhesive circles, they are PERFECT for my small embellies like these sequins. I also added a couple of small 3D Foam Hearts :)

Lastly I adhered all my photos on the page with E-Z Runner® Ultra and inked the edges of my page with ink.

Had a blast creating page - was able to do this in an afternoon.

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: You're A Star Shaker Card from Creativation 2017

Hello everyone! I am so excited to share a window shaker card created with Keepsake Envelope Mix as an easy shaker feature on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog! I had the honor of designing all three make and take projects for Creativation 2017 (formerly CHA - Craft & Hobby Assoc.) trade show in Phoenix AZ last month. Let me show how to create this fun interactive card!

**As a part of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Design Team, I receive products for use in my projects. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience and doing so I can share what I personally love to use :) **

To make the card base, die-cut a square on an A2 (4.25 x 5.5 in) size card front to create a window/opening. Stamp banner and sentiment. Color the banner with watercolor pencils (or coloring pencils). Set aside.

To make the shaker feature, cut patterned paper to fit inside a large Keepsake Envelope. Scoop enough sequins to fill the spoon’s bottom and place in front of patterned paper, inside the envelope.

Take out four sequins to use on the card front later. Take the liner off from the envelope and close the flap. Set aside.

Apply the E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser close to the edge of the window as possible (to secure in place).

Curl the ends of the Keepsake Envelope liner together to make a “handle” for easy placement over the window. DO NOT REMOVE THE LINER YET – use it to adhere the adhesive edges together to secure.

Add white cardstock panel to cover shaker by applying E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser on the edges of cardstock. Remove liner of Keepsake Envelope and place white cardstock over to cover the entire back cover of card.

Now for the fun part, embellish card front! Pull out the points of largest 3D Foam Star FIRST gently with a tooth pick WITH LINER ON (helps keep its shape). Place on top of the shaker in any way (straight, angle, etc.).

Remove the liner from the 3D Foam Star and place the foil shiny side up. Gently burnish into the star with your finger and lift the foil. For the finishing touch, add your sequins to accent the card front with a combination of Adhesive Dots Mini and new Adhesive Dots Micro.

Thanks for stopping by!

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: How to Embellish Valentine Twist Pop-Up Card

Today I am on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog with this fun card! Using E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser and Thin 3D Foam Squares - Mix Black, I made a Valentine Twist Pop-Up Card. If you search "Twist Pop-Up Card Tutorial" on the internet, there will be a few to choose from. I used: Twist Pop-Up Card Tutorial by SplitCoast Stampers.

**As a part of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Design Team, I receive products for use in my projects. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience and doing so I can share what I personally love to use :) **

I assembled the mechanics and card base with E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser. It is a strong, permanent, clear double-sided adhesive that can handle paper construction like this.

For the pop-up panel: I cut 2.5 x 3.5 inch red paper for each panel. One was layered with stickers and inked edges with Fired Brick ink (all the red papers were inked the same). The second, I added stickers on a 2.25 x 3.25 inch patterned paper panel.

I added a sticker and 3D Foam Key shape. Simply remove the liner and rub in the Pigment Powder Brown to "Wear Your Adhesives on the Outside" for a shimmery effect.

The last panel, I die-cut a heart into the red paper and added a sticker sentiment in the lower right corner. Next fill small flower sequins into the Keepsake Envelopes Mix small size and close the flap. The sequins will fall out as they are TINY so apply E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser around the edges of the envelope and (back of) heart window to seal. Place it over the heart window from the back side. Add Thin 3D Foam Squares - Mix Black and center onto the brown panel.

Add the rest of the red panels on the brown pop-up panel using E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser. Then place onto the twist mechanics of the card base.

Repeat the same shaker instructions for the card front with Keepsake Envelopes Mix medium size and a large heart die. Add Creative Photo Corners Gold on each corner of Card Panel. Oh, later I decided to add red glitter to 3D Foam Hearts in the center for some sparkle! LOL!

Here's what it looks on the inside...

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: Snowy Kisses Gift Bag Tutorial

Today I'm up on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog :) I wanted to create a "sweet" gift bag of kisses leftover from the holidays, using Bo Bunny's Winter Wishes Collection with our E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine Adhesives Dispenser for my vellum accent pieces. I'm also using Thin 3D Foam Squares - Mix Black and E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips to put everything else together.

Gathering up my materials, this is what I will be using...

With a 5.0 x 5.5 in. piece of Icicles paper, I adhered a strip of vellum that I cut from the Winter Wishes Foil Vellum Paper with E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine Adhesives Dispenser - seriously cannot see the adhesive on this vellum! Using the same adhesive, I ran a strip across (and a little on the back) and placed my Lace Ribbon on top and folded the ends in the back. Set aside.

I wanted a subtle dimension to my panel so I pulled out my Thin 3D Foam Squares - Mix Black and placed a few in the back of my die cuts. Set aside.

Now to work on the layers, first the tree die cut was adhered by E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips and placed over the frame on the right side. Then add the foamed girl die cut on the left with a little overlap.

I adhered a vellum accent (cut from the same vellum as the foiled strip) with E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine Adhesives Dispenser and placed on top of the tree die cut.

Taking the liner off the Thin 3D Foam Squares - Mix Black, adhere the embellished frame die cut on top of the panel.

Using E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips, adhere the panel to the Glasine bag. Add chocolate kisses in the bag and fold 0.50 in. from top with scoring tool. Seal with E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine Adhesives Dispenser (so the seal looks invisible).

Now to give it away...if you can! LOL! Here's another look...
