Hello our blog fans. Today I would like to present a album cover. It is a first album for a little boy ! Perfect to capture the memories, moments … write down some sentences and describe funny situations captured in the pictures.  It look like I’am guite sentimental recently time :) Let’s take a look, please :

Vintage Baby

To create this album I used a ready base from Eco-Scrapbooking – a polish brand producing bases for cards, album etc. Inside pages are made from blue envelopes – they match perfectly with Maja Design papers! This time I used collections of Vintage Baby – I found there perfect papers for a boy, which I combined with the newest Monochromes collection.

Vintage BabyVintage BabyThe main element on the cover it’s die cut  from this collection. It is so useful when in a collection you have also some die cuts. It makes our work much easier and faster ! The next element it is a big chipboard frame from Scrapiniec. Some Petaloo flowers and ordinary roses, leafs and splashing. It is not too complicate but really impressive.

Hi dear Maja fans! It is Camilla again, showing you a card I have made with the lovely papers from the Denim & Friends collection. Wow, I just love the new papers. I made this card to my aunt and uncle who both celebrate their 60 years birthday this Summer.

Denim-P

The card was inspired by a card made by the talented Cathrine Sandvik in the latest issue of Ett Trykk. Since there was no tutorial, I made it on my own. It is kind of making a frame card, only to put the frame inside the folder.

I have coloured the image from Stempelglede with Distress Ink, re-inkers. The pink is Victorian Velet, and the blue is Weathered Wood. I have also added some liquid pearls on to it.

Under you have a view of how it looks inside with the frame.

Blue and beige is some of my favourite colours to work with, and I think this collection is one of my favourite from Maja Design!

I hope you are having a wonderful Summer, with warm summer nights :)

Lots of love and hugs from

A happy hello to all of our crafty friends! It’s Nancy, and I’m so happy to be here with you at the Maja Design Blog! I’m playing with my Denim and Friends papers again. I can’t seem to get enough of them.

I adore the distressed barnwood pattern in the new paper collection. It takes me back to childhood summers at my aunt and uncle’s farm. My sister and I stayed with them a week or two out of each summer, which was a real treat for us. It was so cozy. Life revolved around the workings of the farm, and everyone had a part to play. My sister and I were charged with the daily picking of the strawberries and helping set the tables for the communal lunch. When we were left to our own devices we especially loved exploring in the barn, which always seemed to have a couple of bird nests and an assortment of cats and kittens to cuddle and love on. It was a simple and joyful time. This card is inspired by those memories and the happiness they bring to my heart.

The center flower is handmade from the Vintage Autumn Basics paper collection. Can you tell I recently baked up a batch of wildflowers? I’ve been using them quite a bit lately. The butterflies are stamped on design paper then fussy cut. A little nest and a few rose petals are hiding in there as well.

The sentiment is stamped onto design paper. Hand punched lace is is tucked randomly around the edges.

You’ll find additional stamping and a splattering of acrylic paint on the design paper.

Each paper is distressed, layered, and stitched together.

Hello my dear friends and happy Sunday to all!!!

It’s Mary here with you today and I have a new layout to share with you, made with the beautiful ”Denim & Friends” collection.

I decided to use a paper again in blue tones combined with some beautiful flowers that was matching the photo I found on Pinterest perfectly. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

closer 1

I used for my background the ”Stonewashed” paper and I made some layers behide my photo with the ”Blazer” paper using both sides of it.

closer 2

I gave my background a coat of clear gesso and then, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. I continued by coloring my page with Lindy’s Stamp Gang spray ”Blue Hawaiian Blue”.

closer 3

I heat embossed the title with the ”Geranium Coral Blush” and the pieces from the ”Viney Page Frame” with the ”Oakleaf Olive” Lindy’s embossing powders. All the chipboards I used are 2crafty, the flowers are Prima Marketing and the metal embellishments are Scrap-Unlimited.

To finish my page, I made some splatters with white acrylic artists ink.

Hello Maja Friends.

I’ve got a trio of shabby cards I made from the Sofiero collection. I know I made so many projects recently but I still can not stop playing with it.

This time I decided to try to use the pictures of beautiful ladies that go on a separate Cards sheet.

Moreover I haven’t made something shabby for a while, so I took some of my fav lace and doily lace so I added them to my cards alongside with stitching on them.

I like using any fabric on my cards, and white lace and crochet work really great for shabby style.

I also added the flowers. torn layers

The only thing I did different – I used alternatively various flowers for all the cards
