Hello Sweeties,
Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new project made with the Denim and Friends collection. I created a mini mini-album that can fit in a 6×6 envelope! How cool is that to be able to send a mini with the photos taken during a girl’s night to a dear friend, the photos of your baby to a relative who is far away, …?

As I tell you this mini fits in a 6 x 6 envelope. I use two brads to keep the mini album close.

I use the bands at the bottom of the Denim and Jeans papers to add some decorations as I want to keep the mini as flat as possible.

The mini has a few pockets where you can put your photos.

In the middle, I add two pages but you can add more if you want.

A very good morning to you, dear Visitors to the Maja Design blog :)

The summer is coming to an end, but we shouldn’t let our spirits go down! Today I have two birthday cards to share, and their common element is the blue palette and a motif connected with flying high above :)

The first one features an angel wing in the flower cluster:

I layered papers from the Vintage Frost collection, placed the sentiment stamp with a button in the centre and surrounded it with flowers and leaves. I also added some pearl brads and liquid pearls.

The central motif of the second card is an air balloon surrounded by flowers:

mdblu4

I used scraps of the Vintage Romance papers to make a shabby patchwork background, placed the chipboard layered balloon upon it and decorated it with mini roses and crystal flourishes.

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other:

button: Lemoncraft; chipboard: Scrapiniec; flowers: Prima, my stash; flourishes: Prima; mold: Prosvet; die: my stash

 

So, what do you think about my cards? I really like the way they turned out :) See you soon!

Hello and a huge welcome to you! Today I am here to share my next project which I created using Maja’s gorgeous Vintage Spring Basics combined with Coffee in the Arbour. If you keep scrolling I will share a few close-ups and more details of how I used these beautiful papers.

“Best Friends”

I love yellows…….. and browns just seems to be the thing I go to next! So for this creation I came across this photo of my gorgeous youngest daughter and our furbaby Rafael some time ago in the back yard at home. It was one of those lucky shots that it was fortunate that they were looking my way at the correct time. I had printed this photo off a few times and I never liked the way this came out in the sepia tone so I had stashed it away. But for these project the colours fit beautifully, wouldn’t you agree?

2017-08-21 Best Friend 006 (600x800)

With papers tearing seems to be a natural progession. My first sheet (background sheet) was  Coffee in the Arbour’s Lemoncurd. The soft tones to this paper drew me to it instantly. I did a little stenciling on it but mainly left it’s beauty remain. I then cut the frame from the Vintage Spring Basics 1st of March Sheet. Did some distressing and adhered it to the background piece. With the remainder of the 1st of March I did some tearing and adhered the torn middle section to the page.  I love the images of the calender and other elements that are this sheet. They are just gorgeous and really lend itself to my project!

I also used the back of 1st of March to help the photo pop a little. Again tearing papers to fit the matting of my photo. The other torn pieces were layered amoungst the chipboards and flowers and clocks that I cut from from the Vintage Autumn Basics No.XVI. These were cut carefully and sanded and distressed to give that worn feeling.

2017-08-21 Best Friend 009 - Copy (800x600)

I used some Dusty Attic chipboards inked with Distress Inks and also some paper moulds that I made a few weeks back along with a charm that I picked up in my travels to Taiwan a few months back. I love the simplicity of it.  When everything was layered I then dry brushed my elements to soften the page and then added in a few microbeads with some 3D Gel.

Hi Everyone,

Its Keren here and I created a layout for Maja Design using the new Denim & Friends collection.

I used the brown toned papers from the collection as I wanted to mimic the colors of the sunrise in my picture. I used the summer shirt paper for the background.

Here are some close-ups of my layout. I ripped some papers from the Leather paper to mimic the mountains. Then I used some Prima flowers and feathers to embellish.

I'm Keren Tamir a self taught scrapbooker, mixed media artist and designer. Since I was a child, I always loved art. I used to doodle on my notebooks and on anything I could get my hands on. ​ Fourteen years ago I discovered scrapbooking and fell in love with it. One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. Scrapbooking opened a creative door to something that I had longtime forgotten I'd loved. It gave me peace of heart and mind. visit my blog for more inspiration: https://kerentamir.blogspot.ca
