Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Laurel Seabrook

Today we welcome guest blogger Laurel Seabrook from British Columbia, who will share some of her designs using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Hi everyone, I am Laurel Seabrook and I have been on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L design team for a couple of months now. I am an avid paper crafter, I love making cards, scrapbooks and altered art. One thing that is common in all of them is that they need adhesive, and I love the assortment that Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L offers.

Today I have a couple of cards to share. I teach grade one and I like to give the students a handmade card on their birthday. The other day I used up my last card so I decided I had better get busy building up that stash.

My normal style is very layered with lots of bits. However, grade ones are not the most careful thus I keep the cards I make for them fairly simple. One thing I like to do with simple cards is add some dimension and an easy way to do this is with some 3D Foam Squares. I mounted the stamped cat on foam squares and it helps to add interest to the card.

Another way that I like to add interest on simple cards is to include clusters of elements that are not symmetrical. I like my pieces to look like they just fell and I adhered them. Once I am happy with the placement I use a permanent adhesive, like the E-Z Runner and then a bit of stitching and stapling for added interest.
