I promise to be nothing short of entertaining 😉 sorta-

Lawn Fawn & Scrapbook Adhesives


It’s Lawn Fawn with Scrapbook Adhesives week in the land of the fawn! All week, the design team is sharing creations they made using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

My creation is a Thank You gift for my Father-in-Law! If you have family stay with you over the holidays, this is a perfect handmade gift for them! It’s compact enough to fit in their carry-on, but large enough to include thank you notes from the kids, photos, and a treat for the road! It could pretty much fit a pack of playing cards. I used the Sizzix Suitcase Scoreboards XL Die with a Sizzix Mini Sizzles Mat Board. I used Copic Markers to color the pumpkins stamped on the kraft cardstock with accents colored in with Faber-Castell Art Grip Pencils.

I used the following Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L-

3D Foam Squares, small: I love how these are pre-cut and SUPER tacky & strong!

DODZ, small: The dispenser for these is PERFECT! It’s not at all messy like other glue dots!

-MyStik Dispenser: The adhesive is SUPER strong, even for my 3D suit-case die! I love how compact it is! Perfect for crafting on-the-go.

I used the following Lawn Fawn products:

Dewey Decimal Collection (the library cards fit perfect in the suitcase die)

So Thankful stamp set

Retro Cord

Bright Side Collection (kraft chevron)
