Some Exciting News to Share!

Hello, crafty peeps! I have some exciting news to share! I am joining the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L design team!! YAY! My term officially starts TODAY, so I created this quick, easy and FUN card to celebrate!

Just saying hello card 1

I LOVE thier shaped adhesive products....I used the 3D foam hearts on the card...they released a WHOLE bunch of new designer shapes at the recent Create n Connect show (previously known as CHAS) in Las Vegas....check them out HERE!

For the card, I applied the hearts to the 4.0 x 5.5 inch card front first, leaving the top protected with the backing material. I peeled back the backing on one heart at a time, adding the correct color glitter to each heart to form a rainbow of dimensional brilliance!

Just saying hello card detail

The Hero Arts Sentiment was stamped underneath the row of hearts and the card front was adhered to a black A2 card base, allowing about 1/4 inch of black to show along the bottom.

Just saying hello card detail 2

Such fun to play with innovative new adhesive products! Be sure to check out the SAby3L blog on the 7th and the 21st of each month for my posts!

From Scraps to Treasures!

Hello all!

Today I'm sharing a tutorial on how to change you scraps into a fun floral embellishment, using your Xyron adhesive!

All you need to get started is some punched circles, a scrap of patterned paper (mine is 3x12 inches) and your Xyron 1.5 inch create-a-sticker....

0513 ap tutorial 2

Cut the scrap patterned paper into 1/4 inch strips...run the punched circles through the Xyron 1.5 inch sticker maker...

0513 ap tutorial 2b

Remove one of the punched circles from the adhesive backing and place adhesive side up. Fold the paper strips into the center and adhere to the punched circle...

0513 ap tutorial 3

Repeat four times. Cut 2 paper strips into 6 inch lengths and repeat the process with the shorter strips. Adhere a second punched circle to the top of the layered strip assembly....

0513 ap tutorial 4

You can now trim the paper strips, if desired, or plump and curl them to add dimension. Use all 6 inch strips to create a floral embellishment with a different look....

0513 ap tutorial final

I love using my scraps to create little 'extra' embellishments for my projects! Why throw it out, when you can make some use of it!

Storing Spellbinders Die Templates-TUTORIAL

Hello all! Today, I'm showing you my method to store my Spellbinders Die Templates! I use these clear DVD cases that Becca Feeken links to HERE.

However, almost everyone I know uses magent sheets to allow the die templates to 'stick' in place. I found these magnet sheets to be a bit pricey for my taste and since Xyron manufactures a cool product called Magnet Tape I thought I'd give it a go.

So, I got out my supplies: Xyron Magnet Tape, a clear DVD case and some Spellbinders Die Templates (this set is from the Card Creator Series):

Spellbinders storage 1

I opened the case and laid down 4 strips (1-4 inch strip and 3-5 inch strips) of maget tape-it's adhesive backed, so it sticks to the DVD case like it's always been there!

Spellbinders storage 2

I added the die templates, following the same efficient layout that they came packaged in....

Spellbinders storage 3

And VOILA! Some fast, efficient and ECONOMICAL storage for my metal die templates!

Spellbinders storage 4

Sometimes I repeat the process on the other side of the DVD case, particularly when the sets are related. I figure I can get about 10 sets stored with a single Magnet Tape Dispenser from Xyron! You could go all crazy and decorate the case too, but I'm a visual person, so I like to see what I'm using, so I've left mine plain, for the most part.

LOVE how economical this makes my die storage!
