T-minus TWO days until Halloween!

And we have some MUST haves for you scrapbooking.

First, our Tim Holtz Kraft Core Seasonal Impressions shown here from Designer Debbie Standard:

I love when the season is one that works with Tim Holtz Seasonal Impressions cardstock – it makes the page so easy to do.  For this page I started with sanding the entire sheet.  Then I inked the outside design and some of the words with Tim Holtz Ink.  Then I shielded the middle of the sheet and sprayed the edges again with Ranger Dylusions Pure Sunshine spray.  Then I embossed a sheet of Tim Holtz Adirondack cardstock and sanded it and layered it over a sheet of patterned paper from Graphic 45′s French County collection.

AND … we have another gorgeous gorgeous creation using our SECOND must have for Halloween projects…..BLACK MAGIC!
Chalkboard is all the rage currently and what better product than Core to create your own embellishments and layouts! Especially Black Magic!! For a “grungier” chalkboard look, that look as if the blackboard has been used, be sure to rub your chalk (yes, real chalk), lightly on the Nightfall cardstock before decorating. I have used 4 different chalkboard effects here to create this layout; 1.) white pencil on paper (my title, Carved), 2.) Die cut or punched objects with sanded edges (bat and numbers), 3.) white powder embossed stamps and 4.) embossed Black Magic which is sanded to show color for a pop of color.

HOW COOL! Suzzana used some of her own chalk skills on here AND did some simple sanding on the star. SO COOL!

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L — Day THREE!

Good Morning!

We are here with Day THREE of our Blog Week with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L! Hope you are having as much fun as we are.

Today Design Team Member Andrea Amu has a really cool card for us. Don’t just take one look at this…keep looking at those close-ups!

Andrea used  Core’dinations White Wash collection and Snowflake white Core Essentials cardstock along with the Baby Boy collection from Bella Blvd.
The 3L product used for this project included:
- 3L Thin 3D Foam Squares to add slight dimension to the patterned paper accents added to the card, as well as the sticker and washi tape badge embellishing.
- 3L White Photo Corners.
- 3L 3D Dodz, used to attach the button the the “O”.
- 3L My Stik applicator E-Z Dots for general adhesive.
(for a list of all of these prodcuts check it out here at http://www.scrapbook-adhesives.com/)
Here is a little bit about this project from Andrea herself,
“I embossed the Snowflake Core with a Darice Plaid embossing folder and added color to the embossing with a Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad in Broken China.  I then added extra dimensional lines to the plaid with some Aleene’s Paper Glaze dimensional medium.  After the lines completely dried, I went in and accenting color to the textured lines with some pearlized Smooch Ink in Sundance and Azure.”
You can totally see how she sanded the white wash and then added all that cool color in the stripes.
Check out all those layers!!!!

COOL, huh?!?!

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Day TWO!

Today we are here with Design Team Member Char Dobson. Char’s Tueseday tip for you is all about  the CD pocket. They are acid free and archival safe so perfect for any project.  And self-adhesive so just peal off the back!

Yes…we are in LOVE with these! I love the sentiment that Char uses…wonder what is on that CD?

And the other side:

Other supplies:  Bella Blvd stickers, May Arts ribbon, Ranger Distress ink
And Char created a card for us today, too. Love how Char combines purple with the natural jute and burlap flower from May Arts.
Notice the metal embellishments, too?  You need some GREAT adhesive for these kinds of embellishments, especially on a card that will be open and closed. That is why we love our Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L power tape.
Char’s next Tuesday  Tip is …..don’t be afraid to emboss those Core Cards!  Just emboss the front by sliding it in to your folder. They are perfectly sized A2 Cards that will fit right in your standard embossing folders like this one from Provocraft.
Other Core’dinations used : Kraft CoreCut & Emboss

The sun is shining…vacations are happening…AND it’s baseball season!!!

Isn’t this the cutest little guy you’ve ever seen?  Design Team Member Debbie Standard used loads of Bella Blvd goodies on here in addition to some Vintage Core Cardstock (base) and Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions (Dots)  and a fabulous Core tag!

And how much do you love that star?  They are so so easy to make. Cut out a star with any kind of diecutting machine or even free hand it. Then turn it over and score from point to point and then sand the front! Remember to always scor from the back so the raised image is on the front to sand. For more tips on scoring check out our videos here.

And make sure you check to see if you are a winner!

Bella Blvd posted their winners here and ours were posted here.
