CardMaker Scrapbook Adhesives 3L Blog Hop!

Good morning!
Today the CardMaker team is joining the
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®
team to showcase their company's amazing adhesives and crafting products. 

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® is sponsoring two Adhesive Prize packages worth $25 each. One winner will be randomly drawn from comments on the Crafty Power Blog, and the other will be randomly drawn from comments on the participating blog posts.  Be sure to comment on each blog for your chances to win. The contest is open from June 19, 8:00 am EST, until June 21, 8:00 am EST. Winners will be announced on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Power Blog!
Here are a few of my favorite adhesives that they carry:  EZ Runner White Permanent Adhesive, which holds so well and comes off the roll ridiculously smooth and fast,  easy to apply just where you need it, and White and Black 3D Foam Squares.  
 The way some people feel every card is better with a bow, I believe most every card need popped up element!  Most often I use the white squares since my popped up elements are usually stamped on white cardstock, but when you pop up dark elements, black are the best choice, being more discreet underneath when holding a project at an angle. I use runner adhesive and foam squares on virtually every project I make, even though they aren't seen, they are the wind beneath my cards' wings! :) The right adhesives make a world of difference.
Just imagine, this card would look so much different without some foam squares to hold up the stamped lattice background, the flower and the sentiment tag!

Supplies used:   EZ Runner White Permanent Adhesive, White3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® , Pretty Patterns 2, A Year of Flowers 2 and Nature's Greetings stamp sets, Pretty Patterns 2 and A Year of Flowers 2 Studio cut files, white brads, Ocean Mist and Turquoise Sea premium ink pads, Pure Luxury Sweet Mango, White  Blue Raspberry cardstock from Gina K. Designs Copics  B00 and BG05, die cutting machine & Petite Labels One dies S3-205 by Spellbinders .

I also have a soft spot for the way some of their tape runners allow you to add a favorite photo to the side of the dispenser.  While not absolutely necessary for the crafting process, why not incorporate good design and great memories when you're designing?  Certainly makes me smile :)

Next on our hop is Shell Carman. 
Shell's blog is having some technical difficulties for some this morning, so if you have trouble accessing it or any of her links, please go to Ivanka's blog.  Thanks!  Full link list is also found below.
