I wish a happy hello to all our friends of the Maja Design Blog! I hope you’re well and enjoying a lovely spring season. It’s Nancy on the blog today and I’m super excited to have something new to share with you.

I love anything and everything ‘time’ themed. It can be art, a time travel series or movie, or a vintage clock or pocket watch. I adore it all. With this in mind I felt inspired by Maja Design’s gorgeous Vintage Autumn Basics collection to create this new card.

There is quite a bit of fussy cutting involved with this card, from the clock to the vintage lady, the pink flowers, and the sentiment. All of this fussy cutting has made me realize I  I need better lighting in my craft room or stronger glasses. :-))

The roses are handmade. I have a tutorial for these roses on my blog.

Here are a few detail photos. Each embellishment is popped up with foam tape to create multiple layers. I tucked in a twine bow and some cheesecloth to finish things off.

I have the best time playing with my Maja Design papers! I hope you do, too!!

Maja Design Papers Used:

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

Thank you so much for visiting us on the blog today! It’s an honor and a pleasure to be here with you. I send wishes that you may be surrounded by all in life that is beautiful.

“LOVE” – March Moodboard inspired project with video tutorial by Tina Ollett

Hello and welcome Maja friends.

Tina Ollett with you today to share my inspired Maja Designs Moodboard project for March.

This is “Remember”…..

I have used this photo on many occassions but never in the coloured form. For some unkown reason to myself I never ever knew my daughter was actually wearing a pink dress in this pic until I come across the original cleaning out my photo stash last week. Well I think I can be forgiven because this little girl in the photo is about to turn 14. So it was a while ago that the photo was taken. On this day she had been riding up and down on her scooter when she had a fall from the scooter. She was not impressed that it has happened at all and sat and sulked for some time. I don’t know what made me take the photo but it is a huge favourite of mine.

For my project I have used the papers from the Nyhaven collection. I would have to say that this is my number one on my Maja Design list of collections. I also believe I have made more layouts from this collection than any other in my time on the team.

Eating Out

 

Strolling along the canal

I have to say that I love to distress my Maja papers. They come up a treat when distressed heavily. And they give a great effect to shabby chic projects. So I did a little tearing and distressing of my photos.

I have added in lots of Dusty Attic chipboards, 49andMarket flowers, muslin, prills and I also added texture to my background page using the mini hearts stencil from Dusty Attic.

You can see the heart stencil above here. They are just so cute.

 

The crackle effect can be seen above. Leaving your chipboards to dry on their own has a better outcome than heatsetting. It is often hard to wait but I think the wait is well worth it.


And for you, a little video of my creating time during my project “LOVE”. I hope you enjoy it.

That is all from me tonight. I hope you have enjoyed popping by. Thankyou for doing so. And until next time take care and happy scrapping.

Hello out blog fans. Today I’m really late with the post. I totally forgot to show you my last card created for the mood board challenge. Have you seen it? In this inspiration, I would like to show you how universal are the Maja’s papers. I have used the Christmas Collection of paper to create completely no Christmas card. It’s a huge value of the papers!

I’m wondering if you are using the Christmas Collection due the yeat as well? If not – it’s good advice to try. Hope you will like my card. Hugs, Paulina

Days to remember

Hello!

I was inspired to create a new springtime layout in a romantic vintage style.

I love the soft colours in spring, nature awakens from its winter sleep, the sun becomes more beautiful from day to day, the best time to spend more time outdoors again.

I also remember our childhood days when there were no computers to sit in front of for hours.

I thought of blossoming cherry trees when the petals fell like snow.

Vintage-Spring-Basics-P

As background I used the backside of the 4th of May.

Then I tored the 10th of May into several stripes and stuck them on top of each other.

 

some close up’s

I found the idea of using these calendar pages as layers under the photo very suitable and exciting.

 

 

 

 As in every collection there is also a page to cut out with different tags.

 As a special highlight I added the cut out little girl in the lower right corner

 and created a deep effect with foam pads.

Thanks for your visit!

Happy sunday!

Hi everyone! I hope you are fine. Here in Norway the Spring is close, the snow is gone and the birds have started to sing in the mornings. I think Spring is my favorite time of the year. The days get longer, and the flowers germinate. Its time for a new fresh start! Here in Norway the Spring is also time for Confirmations. And I have had that in mind with these cards. Can you guess which Maja Design Collection I have used for my cards??

Yes of course, the lovely Vintage Spring Basics.

Here you see little Tilda from Magnolia sitting on some steps. She is resting, and maybe looking for something to photograph. I have masked the two stamps together. The lovely text is from Stempelglede. For my colouring I have used Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. I often stamp with Memento stamp pad, on the Langton Watercolour papers. My brushes are synthetic and I use size 0 and 000.

For the flowers I have used Foamiran. And some dies from Magnolia. I cut them out, blow on them with my heat gun, then curl them a bit, before I stretch the petals out again.

Inside the card I have made a paper strip to put some money behind. And a small card to write a greeting on.

Here is my second card. Made the same way as my first. And with the same flowers.

Here I have used the pink flower stamens. I have made a step by step of how I made the flowers:

 

Just another close up. The bow is made with Maja papers and a Magnolia die.

Here you can see that I have added Liquid pearls in Tilda’s hair, and around her.

Underneath the flowers I have put some Sisal grass. The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Here the inside of the card. With beautiful butterfly paper from the Vintage Spring Basics Collection.

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

With love,
