Wear your Adhesive on the Outside Part 2

It's that time again! It is Monday and once again me and my dear friend Nathalie Kalbach are up to some crafty goodness! Although we have been sick (I KNOW, STILL!) here, I was able to get the assistance of my dear James to help me out with this video. Excuse the middle where it goes into song, for some reason this clip caught some static, so the music is actually a lot easier on the ears than the static that was there.

The SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L products that we are using this week are the Crafty Power Tape (although I called it Craft and Photo Tape, it has been re-named) and the photo corners. In the video I share a basket weaving technique, weaving the craft and photo tape into a nice little grid pattern. You can easily apply the adhesive to strips of paper if that would be easy enough for you to weave too!

Here are some up close pictures of the project:

Final Project: Sweetheart- Sawyer and Emma Culbertson (His little crush). I forgot to JOURNAL! LOL! I will add it in later :)

Here is the close up shot of the heart that I did the basket weave technique using Crafty Power Tape and Glitter. I then punched it with a Fiskars Punch (I believe it was the large scalloped heart)

This is the technique that Nathalie used last week where she used the Adhesive Sheets with Embossing powder. I laid the adhesive sheet on my black paper (Couture Cardstock) unevenly to give the black paper texture. I then laid my screen down and sprinkle UTEE over the top of the adhesive. I then removed my screen and heated the UTEE so it would crystallize. After it cooled down, I sprinkle red glitter into the adhesive that my screen protected to create this broken and solid image.

Ruffle made with misted paper towels and the Crafty Power Tape as seen in this video.

And here are a few ideas for using Photo Corners by SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L. I used the photo corners as texture to create the shingles on the house. I created a swirled pattern on the house.

And Here I cut out some wings and layered the photo corners on the wings to look like feathers. I also misted them with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist to give the a nice little glimmer.

Thanks for stopping by and REMEMBER to join in the fun and link back to our blogs of pics of your projects or email me at and I will enter you into a random drawing for a nice prize package. The more times you play along the more chances you have to WIN!

Thanks again and make sure to visit sweet Nat Kalbach to see what she did with her adhesives!

  2. Ooooo... that house is AMAZING! This is my fave adhesive and I LURVE my Kraft photo corners by 3L. I'll have to think up some funky stuff to do with them!

  3. Oooooo... that house is amazing!!! I love 3L adhesives and I stock up on the Kraft photo corners... I'll have to think of something funky to do with them.

  4. Cool !
    I'd love to know how you made the headband ;)

  5. Hey Nolween,

    I will try and do a video of this head band this weekend, it was super easy. I used left over paper towels, the technique that I did with the strips of paper towels (misted and glammed) and the Crafty Power Tape and created a bloom out of that. I them added the Prima flowers and crystals and Karen Foster bling, and voila! You have yourself a headband. I even used the Crafty power tape to adhere the flower to the headband.

    Hope this helps!
