Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: Donna Salazar Denim Friendship Book Cover Tutorial

I am up on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog using their newest release introduced at the 2015 Winter CHA (Craft & Hobby Assoc.) Mega Show, an annual trade only show in Anaheim CA last weekend.

Girly Grunge Guru, Donna Salazar and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® joins forces to create a line of mixed media products. Using her Denim Book, I created a Friendship Book Cover. This book measures 8 x 10" and has two denim material covers. There is a total of five medium weight chipboard pages to withstand layers of mediums.

Here are some sneaky peeks from the post I did... more! LOL! You'll have to come visit Donna Salazar Denim Friendship Book Cover post for full tutorial and supplies list. Let them know what you think too!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: 3D Foam Shapes Japanese New Year Hagoita Tutorial

Click on the post title if you are looking for my Seasons Givings Holiday Blog Hop Year 3!

My first post of the year on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog is about my heritage and a New Year's game that was played in Japan. Hanetsuki game is similar to badminton (hitting a birdie back and forth with a paddle). It is rarely played now and the paddle became more of a New Year's decorative piece in the home. This is my take of the paddle created with cardstock!

I'll show you all a few steps - shhhh, sneak peek (wink wink!)  :)

That's it! Can't show you any more...for detailed tutorial and a full supplies list, visit 3D Foam Shapes Japanese New Year Hagoita Tutorial.

As always MANY THANKS for always stopping by!
