Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: How to Create a So Thankful Pillow Box with 3D Foam Creative Sheets

**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 :) **

One of my favorite products is the 3D Foam Creative Sheets from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®! They cover my entire medium to small sized die cuts with dimension. See my sweet fall pillow box with a handmade wreath from Lawn Fawn? SO CUTE!!

I stamped my pile of leaves images in different patterned papers from the Perfectly Plaid Fall Petite Paper Pack. Then trimmed them down to a small size (don't want to waste the 3D Foam Creative Sheets :) ).

Move the liner back and place the stamped image on top. Replace the liner on top and rub to apply adhesive. Trim to your image size with scissors. Die cut the piece and VOILA!

Repeat with the single leaf image to create dimension, using scraps.

To make my leaves wreath, I cut up parts of the pile of leaves images...

Next I hand cut a ring with scissors - to use a guide for my wreath. It can be ugly - LOL!!

I pre-determined the placement before adhering them down. This part is FUN - just pile it on!

I stamped my sentiment on a piece of patterned paper, trimmed to make a double ribbon tail banner and adhered with E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser on top of the wreath.

Now place the wreath on the flattened box. For the finishing touch, add sequins on the wreath with Dodz Adhesive Dots Mini. Tip: Flip the box over and rub baby powder on the exposed adhesive of the 3D Foam Creative Sheets to prevent it from sticking to anything.

Assemble your box and add your favorite treat! Me? Hmm....maybe not candy corn (lol!) but a coffee gift card would be PERFECT! HA!

As always, thank you for stopping by!!

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: Using Adhesives Sheets on Intricate Die Cuts for my Autumn Hello Card

Today I am sharing my autumn themed card and how Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6" saved me time and frustration on placing my intricate die cuts. Let me show you how!

Recently I have been addicted to mono printing using a gel plate and ink pads (paint are the usual medium but I had to be different! LOL!) to make my own patterned papers. Here's what I did...
  1. Mist the gel plate with water and then pounced Orange Blossom Ink, Potting Soil Ink and Fern Green Ink in desired areas.
  2. Then lightly mist with water over the inked area to give it texture (think water droplets).
  3. Wait a few moments and then place a piece of white cardstock over the plate.
  4. Gently rub across the back of the cardstock evenly for good coverage.
  5. Then pull the paper away and enjoy the results!

I am showing one of the patterns that will be used below...

For the die cuts, I first trimmed my paper to size and applied the Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6" on the back. I took off the thin border liner and used it as my guide to place my paper. Then took off the liner little by little and rubbed it to cover the back the patterned paper. Perfect coverage!

Next I die cut my intricate die designs and "hello" word (repeat the same process with green cardstock in a small size).

Trim the green cardstock and other patterned paper to created a matted card panel to fit an A7-sized card base. I used E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser as my patterned paper was warped. I love that it adheres down flat :)

Figure out the placement of the die cuts and then take off the liner to adhere...I started with "Hello" and worked on the edge.

I used Dual Tip Glue Pen to adhere my cute acorn die cuts and used E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser to center the embellished card panel onto my card base.

Isn't it adorable?! Loved how it turned out and without fighting with the adhesive = EASY!!

Got intricate dies?! Use Adhesive Sheets - they have different sizes. NO STICKY MESS on dies and CUTS LIKE BUTAH! LOL!

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: Many Birthday Blessings Card featuring Adhesive Sheets

I'm on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®'s Blog! Sending many birthday blessings through this layered card I created featuring their Adhesives Sheets. Not only can you die cut with these sheets but you can easily carry them to your craft gatherings without the bulk of a machine or tool (LOVE that!!).

First I die cut my pieces with patterned paper (card panel and frame) and cardstock (background accent piece and sentiment).

I applied my background accent piece with Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6" by pulling the liner back, placing the die cut on the sticky white surface and then placing back the liner to rub the die cut between the two sheets. Remove the liner and pull off the die cut (with its back covered in adhesive). Center the die cut on top of the card panel.

Next apply the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser on the back of card panel and adhere to A2 size card base.

Add adhesive on the back of the frame die cut using the process as background accent piece with the Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6" and center the die cut onto the card panel.

Stamp the sentiment onto the die cut and add 3D Foam Squares - Black, Regular on the back. Center onto the frame die cut on card panel.

Add trinket butterfly pin on an angle behind on the lower left side of frame die cut (the adhesive sheet adhesive will secure it as well as the Dodz Adhesive Dots 3D as explained below).

For the finishing touch, place a Dodz Adhesive Dots 3D on the back of a flower embellishment and place on top of the trinket butterfly pin.

Here's another look at the finished card!

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: Forever Wedding Card Using Adhesive Sheets

Today I'm up on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog!! One of my favorite adhesives to use on die cuts is their Adhesive Sheets. For those intricate designs, it is a life-saver and a time-saver! With the etched dies (aka thin wafer dies), it cuts like butah - leaves no mess on you & on your dies.

I trimmed a piece of white cardstock that fit my die and then applied Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6" to the back. Trim the excess adhesive sheet off and run through your manual die cutting machine. Cuts with no problem/no residue and no mess :)  They come in three sizes: 4 x 6", 6 x 12" and 12 x 12".

Next I worked on my background, I colored my card base with Design Memory Craft® Gelatos® (Raspberry, Watermelon and Mango). Then blended with a baby wipe to achieve that trendy watercolor look.

While the card base dries, I die cut my sentiment "Forever" with textured gold cardstock and Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6". Just repeat my earlier step with the background die cuts.

Next I used my test paper (I tested my Gelatos® color combination on a piece of white cardstock) and trimmed to 1.5 x 4.25" strip. After I edged the strip with Raspberry Gelatos®, I applied adhesive on the back with Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6".

I wanted to create interest with the sentiment so I colored my looped threaded wire with Pigment Powder Pink (I rubbed the wire with left over Adhesive Sheet before coloring). Small flowers were layered with Dodz™ Adhesive Dots Medium. All were secured with Dodz™ Adhesive Dots 3D.

Lastly, adhere the sentiment, add touches of purple glitter to the flower center and background.

Here's another look at the card.

Love Adhesive Sheets - no need to bring a tool, stores flat and is lightweight. Perfect to bring to a crop, class or crafternoon.
