Spring Shaker Cards

Spring is in full swing and Summer isn't far off!  I am up today at SRM Stickers with some cards that can work perfectly for Spring or Summer depending on what you need!  I love that the stickers from SRM Stickers are clear and using them on a Shaker Card can really highlight just how awesome they are!

Using clear Keepsake Envelopes from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L helped make this job a little easier.  I simply slid my patterned paper into it and added some sequins.

I topped the whole thing with a spring sentiment from the Sentiment/Spring sticker set and there you have it! A quick, whimsical card sure to make anyone smile.

And if pineapples aren't your thing, how about flamingos?  Same process for this card but a different look with a different paper and sticker.

The circle stickers have long been a favorite in my stash!  This one also comes from the Sentiment/Spring set. Now if you are thinking, I don't have time to get a spring card done, you can easily swap out the spring stickers for these: Sentiment/Summer and have it work just as well!

Using up my Paper Flower Stash

It's a small group of us using up our Stash this month, but there are some great videos nonetheless!  This month we are focused on using up die cut pieces (ephemera, bits & pieces, etc...) and/or chipboard.  I dove into a giant pile of flower die cut pieces and here's what I created!

Now the whole purpose of this challenge is to SHOW you how we did it so here's my video:
Be sure to check out the other gals who are working thru this challenge this month too!  I always love their ideas!

Although a lot of this project was using older products, I do have Affiliate thumbnails to what is available at Scrapbook.com still!

Niagara Falls Vacation Mini Flip Album & Video

I take way too many pictures on vacation!  Anyone else like me?  I'm learning more and more how to efficiently capture those memories while still feeding my creative side.  This is one of those ways!  Today I have a mini album from Paper House Productions using their Adventure Flip Album!

I decorated the cover to give it a one of a kind feel:

Rather than flood you with pictures, I thought a video walk-thru would be a better way to show you this fun album!  Here it is:

Little Boy Scrapbook Layout

One of my favorite things about scrapbooking is that it allows me to capture the “little” memories – special everyday moments like cute habits or sayings from your kids. Today I have a layout that does just that: captures the little things my son says! And bonus, I'm using several adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3LⓇ
Little Boy Scrapbook Layout for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L using E-Z Runner Grand and 3D Foam Squares
I created a big bold title using a We R Memory Keepers alphabet punch board. The title tells what the layout is about. Then I used tiny letter stickers to highlight some of his quotes. Going for a big and bold title requires a good adhesive to make sure it goes down and stays down! The E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser got the job done perfectly!

ChristineMeyer-ThingsYouSayLayout-4Let’s just review how easy it is to load the cartridges into this E-Z Runner Grand.  I love that it’s easy and foolproof!

I can’t do a scrapbook layout without adding dimension and the 3D Foam Squares help make that happen.

I didn’t add tons of dimension but I did use them on several triangles!

Sometimes removing the backing from foam adhesives can be cumbersome, but with these ones that is not the case, which makes that part of creation easier.

Emoji Scrapbook Layout

Greetings on this beautiful spring day!  Today I am joining you with a layout that is sure to make you smile!  Anybody else out there get frustrated with trying to attach small words and cut file pieces to projects?  Today I am going to highlight how you can make this job easier with the E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
Emoji Scrapbook Layout using E-Z Runner Micro Refillable Dispenser from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I didn’t add a lot of dimension to this layout but stuck with a lot of flat elements.
ChristineMeyer-EmojiScrapbookLayout-2

I’m a busy mom so when I have time to scrap I want my adhesive to make the job quick and easy. The E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser helped get the job done efficiently.  It was the perfect width for my emoji borders and of course worked just great on the other bigger pieces.

In addition to using cut files, I also LOVE to fussy cut.  But as I mentioned earlier that can be a total pain to add to a layout!  This is where the E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser comes into play.
ChristineMeyer-EmojiScrapbookLayout-4

I used this runner to add the tiniest of strips (just 1/8 of an inch) to the back of all my letters.  It was even easy to use on the curvy S!  I’m not gonna lie, I may have squealed when I saw how great this worked.  Such a time saver!

If you don’t already own it, you definitely want to grab one of these handy refills for your E-Z Runner before you dive into your next project with tiny pieces!

Friendship Layout

Need some scrapping inspiration?  The newest sketch just came up at Stuck?! Sketches! It's a fabulous one!  Here it is:

And here's what I created with it!

One of the hazards of letting me into your life is that you will eventually make it into a scrapbook layout!  These two dear ladies have become treasured friends since our arrival in Ohio!  On Easter we managed to capture a couple good pics together, so I had to document them with this sketch! Additionally I created a process video about putting this layout together and here that is:

United States Map Wall Hanging with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®

Yesterday I shared my Traveler's Notebook pages for the Blog Hop with Paper House Productions and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®.  Today I am back with another travel themed project: a United States Map Wall Hanging.
I receive products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and Paper House Productions for use in my projects. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience and in doing so I can share what I personally love to use 
For this wall hanging I wanted to create a personalized home decor piece.  One that my husband and I could use to document our travels together!  We love to travel and have managed to visit a lot of states together. So this map is a place to capture where we've been together!  Here's a process video on how I made this simple piece:


Adhesive Lines & Adhesive Dots made this project way easier to do!
