Super duper cute!!!! So adorable bright and cheerful!!! Anyone would love that card on their birthday!!!! I must get me some of that tape!!


I can’t believe it’s the last day of June ALREADY!! Where did this month go? Today is our last day to share projects using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products. Be sure to leave a comment so you can be entered into our giveaway. Michelle will be posting the winner!

I decided to create a project for today’s post using Dimestore Vogue along with a couple of my favorite vintage finds. One of my favorite things to do is to find vintage sewing notions to use on my cards. I’ve had this measuring time for a while and knew it would be perfect with the gingham paper with buttons.

I also wanted to use the zipper. So, I created a border with them. Using my My Stik Permanent Strips Dispenser was a breeze and really held both items in place! Next, I decided to add texture and dimension to the buttons.

I used the 3D Foam Squares to do this. I peeled back the paper and dipped them into some silver glass glitter, then I stuck them onto the center of the buttons.  Quick and easy!

Next, I used my Permanent Strips Dispenser again and added a border of adhesive to one of the Dimestore Vogue tags. I added glitter to this, too, and tied some Marachino Baker’s Twine to it. I used the 3D Foam Squares to adhere it to the zipper and finished it off with a glittered flower.

I decided I liked the card front as it was and finished off the inside so I could include a sentiment. I repeated the same technique from the tag on the die cut and added another die cut for the sentiment.

As you can see, the adhesive not only served to hold things together on my card, but I used it as embellishments as well!

Happy Camper

9 Comments | Leave a new comment

Do you have a kiddo going to camp this summer?

Make him/her a Happy Camper with this fun care package made with the Vintage Camping kit filled with fun, authentic vintage and vintage-inspired ribbons, ephemera and accessories all  centered on the outdoors.

A great treat to include in your care package is a paper cone filled with homemade granola. Wired evergreen makes a fun handle for this black paper cone.  The tag is assembled using a  vintage postcard  and a  plastic retro tree. Love how the large Scrapbook Adhesive foam squares are strong enough to adhere the tree! The black foam squares are perfect!

This kraft-colored gift box is  a great box to hold cards for your little camper to send home. The front of the box was decorated with vintage scrapbook paper and  postcard scraps, and trimmed with more wired evergreen and a sweet little retro deer- attached again with those awesome foam squares.

This kit is just chock full of materials! So fun working will all of the different paper textures. An Epiphany Crafts Studio Punch makes a playful embellishment on this card.

The background of this card is made using authentic vintage imagery. Looks like just the place a moose would want to hang out in!

Some Aged Tinted Tape and vintage ribbon accents this vintage image. To make the bear embellishment pop out a bit more, I again used foam dots.  To really make something pop, layer the foam dots!

So, here’s a clever little vintage gadget I found the other day. Looks like its from 1971.  Does anyone remember using one of these? I wonder if your toast really gets this golden brown…

Don’t forget to visit the Scrapbook Adhesives Blog for even more vintage inspiration this month! Also, leave a comment somewhere on the blog, and you’ll be entered to win some fun Vintage Street Market/Scrapbook Adhesives stuff! Winner will be announced June 29th!Read the rest

Vintage Street Market featured in CHA Workshop

3 Comments | Leave a new comment

Vintage Street Market “Tinted Tape” will be featured in a workshop by instructor and VSM design team member, Candy Rosenberg, at the Craft and Hobby Association Trade Show in Rosemont, Illinois on July 19th.

This workshop features a new album, “Krafty Keepsakess” by Basically Bare, covered in Le’ Cirque paper collection from Graphic 45.  We will be using the “aged” and “numbers” tape on this fun album that explores the creative side of ourselves.  I wanted to take this opportunity to show you how I am using the tinted tape in this project.

Here we used the “aged” tape to adhere the photograph onto the page of the album.  The tape is perfect for this purpose, so easy to do and gives a fantastic “aged” look to the photo.  Our students are going to love this technique!

And we used “numbers” tape to accent one of the pages.  This gives it such a great look in an easy to do way.

I would like to take this moment to thank each of the Workshop Sponsors: Basically Bare, Graphic45, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, Vintage Street Market, May Arts, Imaginarium Designs, Flourish with a Bling, Ranger.

Living The Altered Life,

Childs play

Today I thought I’d share with you how you can use Vintage Street Market and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products together for some creative fun for the kids. Today my little buddy Wyatt and I spent some time in my studio working on a fun little book for him.  Well, actually “I” didnt do much of anything at all. He was quite happy to do it all himself 🙂

We started by taking some silly photos, and printing them off to add to his book.

There is no doubt what line we would be using, as he “eye’s” .. Party Games  every time he’s in my room. lol   Something about that puppy and frog that he just loves.

Wyatt was using my  MyStik™ Permanent Strips Dispenser with ease.  He put adhesive on the inside of the opening on the cover, to add one of the silly photos we took.  He thought it was a pretty cool gadget. lol

But… nothing beat the fun he had with the 3D Foam Squares – White, Regular Size

They are so easy for kids to use, letting them feel so independent.  No mess…and NO dry time.   He added his favorite frog and dog to the front of his album using the foam squares….

and found they were a great way to add buttons also.

He little “creative book” has no rules.  He added some photos, some images, papers, and then topped it off  a little coloring.  We packed up a to go back with crayons, stickers, foam squares, ect.. for him to take with him.  I fun project for long trips in the car, or to take to grandmas house, ect..

I’ve used the 3D foam squares many times when crafting with my nieces and nephews..and it’s always a huge hit.  Kids love to be creative, and this is a easy/no mess way for everyone to enjoy the process. lol 

Thanks for stopping by!

Foil Pinwheel

5 Comments | Leave a new comment

Maybe you have heard me saying before that I really am not the best gift wrapper – LOL – but with Vintage Street Market I seem to get there. At least one of my best friends was pretty impressed getting for once a present wrapped niceley in the beautiful Party Games Paper and she for sure loved the Foil Pinwheel.

Foil Pinwheel01

I cut two squares – one from the red Foil Paper of the Party Games Kit and the other one from the teal on in the  Dimestore Vogue kit . I used the Scrapbook Adhesives by §L Adhesive Sheets to put those two square together – an easy way to make sure that even if you bent the foil later the two squares are not coming apart. Then I folded the square two times in half diagonally- so I got four triangles and cut those to the middle. I mounted then one of the sides to the middle where I had adhered an Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Square. On top of that I put a half pearl. Voila- ready to impress friends 😉

Have a wonderful day
