My Favorite Things and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L – Day Three


Hi, everyone, welcome to Day Three of MFT’s collaboration with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L! We reach for adhesives repeatedly during our creative process and they need to be good. I tried out several products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L for this card and I’m going to tell you about them.

First, here’s my card:


I started by trimming a piece of Ranger Watercolor Paper and applying a watercolor wash using Peerless Watercolors and a waterbrush. Then I adhered several pieces of Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8” and Extreme Double Sided Tape 1/4” to create a pattern of stripes…


…like this


Then I removed the red cover and sprinkled Antique Gold Microfine Glitter on the exposed adhesive to get this:


It is very smooth and completely covered with glitter—this tape does an amazing job with the glitter.

Next I popped up the card front on my
Sweet Tooth card stock base with Crafty Foam Tape for dimension.


Then I used one of the 3D Foam Creative Sheets to give dimension to my die cut sentiment from Hello There Die-namics.


I simply adhered some of the adhesive sheet to Black Licorice card stock and cut it out with my Vagabond like normal—it cut quite well and cleanly with no stringiness. Much faster than adhering several layers of die cut together!


I added Bold Greenery Die-namics, cut from Sour Apple card stock, and a stamped sentiment from Forest Friends, stamped on Sweet Tooth card stock and cut with Blueprints 29 Die-namics, both adhered with E-Z Dots Permanent Refillable Dispenser, as was the die cut sentiment.

To summarize, I am really impressed with these products and I think you will be too if you give them a try. Be sure to visit the
