CardMaker and Scrapbook Adhesives Blog Hop!



What a fun day today!  The CardMaker Magazine Blog Team has paired up with Scrapbook Adhesives  by 3L to bring you a very fun hop today showing off all that's available with Scrapbook Adhesives.  All I have to say is WOW!  Not only were they really generous with us  - but they have some awesome products that I had not seen before!  So, I know you'll see some great and inspiring things today on the hop.

Adhesive is an essential in card making.  And the truth is - the RIGHT adhesive makes all the difference on a project being effective.  So today I wanted to show off a number of different applications that used different products in this sweet birthday set I created.


I love when gift packaging is coordinated!  So here's a sweet summer Birthday card and a very fun gift box I created from a Silhouette Cut File I found by Samantha Walker.    



I began with the card creating some fun pennant style elements with Teresa Collins Memories Paper and Flourishes Kid's Play stamp set.  The image is embossed on the icy blue paper and then I added some Scrapbook Adhesives Black Photo Corners to the right edges of the design to accent the main panel and some 3D Foam Squares to pop the panel up a little.   


Now for the very fun gift box that opens so uniquely.... I just love how cute it is!  


Here I used a number of products including Crafty Power Tape to hold the panels of the box together.  It's a lot stronger than regular adhesive which is perfect for a box.   I also used it to adhere the ribbon on the belly band for the box too.  Then, to accent the box I added a pretty felt flower adhering it with medium Dodz which is perfect for holding it together. 

Here's a picture of all the awesome adhesives I used for the Birthday set.  It's so nice to have the right products for a project like this!
