Happy Monday! It’s Marilyn here today and I’m sad to say that it is my last post as Maja’s Design Team. I had two wonderful creative years working with this talented team. I appreciate so much the opportunity that Jenny and Marie gave me, Thanks ladies!     … Why does it take a minute to say hello and forever to say goodbye?-Author Unknown.   And for my last post,  I selected some of my favorites Maja projects that I made during these last two years.DSC_4160

MarilynRivera-2Crafty-Dec-cards Happy Monday! I continue making Christmas cards for my friends and family.  Today I share two cards that I made with the new A Gift for You collection, I love this beautiful collection.  This time  chose  the colors beige, brown and red from this collection.MarilynRivera-2Crafty-Dec-cards-1

I selected the hearts paper side to design my card, love the idea to mix hearts in a Christmas card. I added some tiny heart  and the word circle chippies by 2Crafty Chipboards.



I made both cards from the “Send with love” paper, actually I made three different cards from the same paper, love it!                                                                                                  Supplies: Send with love, Made by me papers- A Gift For You collection.                 2Crafty Chipboards, Prima Marketing-die cut, flowers, gesso.

Until next time!Marilyn-sign

Happy Monday!! Marilyn is here  to share my new Maja Design project with you today. It is a layout for a special friend and behind her in the photo is a brick wall that I continued through the page.  I gave the  effect with a Prima stencil and molding paste to my paper.  I worked with the beautiful Walking in the Forest collection.MarilynRivera-MajaDesign-Oct-2-#2.

I made this mix media page with fabulous textures and dimensions as you can see it in this photo.DSC_7717


I made textures in all my left side of the page, then I draped my Maja Design paper (Knitted Sweather) and made layers with corrugated and lace from Tresor de Luxe.MarilynRivera-MajaDesign-Oct-2-#3.

I cut some of the leaves with a Sizzix die from the Colours of Fall paper and I added some  leaves chippies from 2Crafty Chipboards.MarilynRivera-MajaDesign-Oct-1


I cut out some clocks from the No. XVI paper from the Vintage Autumn collection.
