Well hello there Maja Design Fans,

Today it’s me again on this lovely blog to show you a layout I have created with the newest collection. I really enjoy creating with it because it’s so versatile. Lately I am hooked on vintage pictures especially from vintage clothing but also lace umbrella’s, beautiful hats with flowers and amazing dresses they made in the sixties and before and after…so I thought why not make a layout with it, it totally went great with the colors of the “Celebration”collection and the new flowers from 49 and Market what a wonderful combination that is right?

For the background sheet I used the Party bs sheet on that sheet I added some script stamp and later on I added a brick stamp after that I used some pink spray and to soften that up I sprayed with white too. The I ripped the sheet with the flowers “Good times”up and added them on both side the left a little smaller then the right one behind the flower sheet I also ripped the pink sheet to create more demension.

The chipboard I added was already black I just used my waxes on them the give them a shimmer and more depth and also a little color so they would not look out of place. I also used my favorite stencil on my background and at the end I added some crystal drops by nuvo in the color antique rose {which is my favorite} on that same stencil on the round parts that is….

Maja Design papers used: Celebration: Party, The Table is Set, Good Times and the 6×6 paper pad.

   

Thank you so much for your visit I hope I have inspired you to play with your Maja Design papers you have in you stash or even order new products I have used here.

Love xoxo

Good morning Maja friends!

– Be brave, be happy , be a dreamer –

Every thing is dancing to my whistle 😉 that was my motto for this funny layout.

Kerstin is here and I had a lot of fun with this old and very cool photo and thought

our newest paper collection ‘Celebration’ is more as suitable

for a vintage layout, which should make a little bit good mood

 in our gray everyday life.

I used our latest amazing Paper collection ‘Celebration’

 

and some details

I cut out some from this beautiful man silhouettes and used this people to frame the Black/ white photo.

 

and I love the borders from this papers,

dancing people have a happy and funny appearance, a perfectly addition, right?!

Thank you very much!

Have a wonderful time!

Hello Maja fans!

Mary with you today to share my inspiration for February. I made a soft blue tone layout with lots of flowers, laces, chipboards and metal embellishments.

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across that beautiful and mysterious photo of a girl with a horse. And, the new gorgeous ”Celebration” collection was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I choose the ”You’re Invited” paper for my background and I added some layers with the ”Party” paper and the ”Anniversary” using both sides of it.

First, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with white crackle paste and a stencil. I made some stamping here and there and continued by coloring my page with the ”Blue Hawaiian Blue” Lindy’s Gang spray.

I painted the flourish chipboards and the title with the Sparks ”Magical Pond” acrylic paint. When dried, I gently rubbed on them some ”Vintage Gold” Wax. The ”Flower Stamens” chipboards were also painted with the Sparks ”Raven Black” and they were rubbed first with the ”Blue Velvet” Wax and then with the ”Vintage Gold”. The chipboards I used, are from Dusty Attic. 

When everything was glued down, I added some crystal and turquoise glass beads and sprinkled some glitter. I final touch was made with some splatters with white ink.

That’s all for today, my friends!

Thank you for stopping by!

Hello, and welcome! How is your day going? I’m so happy you’ve joined us at the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy today, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be here with you. While looking through my recent projects, I realized it’s been a very long time since I’ve used one of my favorite collections, Vintage Autumn Basics. The beautiful purples and mauves from this lovely collection always call to me, and are the inspiration for my card.

The papers are so versatile that twine is the only embellishment that is not created from the collection.

The roses and leaves are handmade using design paper. I hope to have a new rose tutorial ready for you on my next post. I meant to have it for you today, but because we have the flu in our home the smallest things (like editing photos) seem insurmountable.  Happily, we are all recovering, so a tutorial will be following shortly.

The layered heart is die cut from design paper, then stitched on the sewing machine and fanned out to create dimension.

The vintage image, sentiment, and flourishes are also from the paper collection. You can see how easy it is to create a card filled with coordinating embellishments with nothing except a pack of Maja Design papers!

A twirly twine bow adds a final frilly touch.

Maja Design Papers Used:

Other Products Used: Natural Twine, Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Dies, Flower Shaping Kit, Flourish Die, Spellbinders Heart Die, Magnolia Rose Leaf Die, Tim Holtz Distress Tool, Sewing Machine, Thread. 

Thank you so much for stopping by! It’s a great pleasure and an honor for me to join you on the blog. I hope you have a day filled with sunshine and wondrously joyful moments!

Hugs,

Hi everyone! I am back with a tag this time. And of course with the gorgeous  new papers, and this time in more pinkish tones.

I have added white gesso and Frantage on the papers. The postmark stamps are from Stempelglede. The image is from Magnolia. The image is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers on the Langton paper.

I have cut out the text and the glasses with Maja papers.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I have added some frantage which I have melted, on the roses.

The sentiment on the tag is from Stempelglede.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

Here are the papers used:

With love,
