Who they are.
3L Consumer Products A/S has 40 years of designing adhesives for the creative industry. In 2004 they launched the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L brand. The line focuses on crafting adhesives that are safe to use and vigorously tested! These easy to use adhesives will suit all of your creative, paper crafting needs.
So much to choose from!
You are sure to find the specific type of adhesive for your projects, and if you aren’t certain, the company blog is full of information to help you make an informed, creative decision.
Think outside the box.
When thinking of adhesives, the obvious use is to stick things down, in place or together! Don’t be afraid to try something different, use your adhesives as part of your creative process! In the sample below I show how my two ‘go to’ adhesives can be used on top of the paper!
My card below uses multiple adhesives. I have used the E-Z Dots and Distress Ink to create the little banners, Premium Double-Sided Tape keeps things together, Crafty Foam Tape adds dimension to the circle and the Photo Mounts add some contrast and interest to my card.
One last trick.
One of my ways I most often use my E-Z Dots is to take photos of my finished creative projects! Here is a pulled back view! I add the E-Z dots to the back of my layouts and cards and stick them to a poster size piece of white foam core [for cards I also add the dots to the inside]. This way I can easily get a photo that is ‘straight on’ and easily cropped and edited in Lightroom, or any other program!
Easy to find!
You will find countless projects on our blog and in our magazines using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. They are most definitely a favourite, creative tool for many of our design team members! You can follow them as well on all of their social media sites to stay informed and inspired!
