Hello Maja fans!

It’s Mary with you today and I have a new layout to share made for my November inspiration.

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across with that amazing photo. I picked a paper from the gorgeous ”Vintage Autumn Basics” collection that was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I choose to use the back side of the ”No XXI” paper. I started by applying a coat of clear gesso on the background and then I created texture with an icing paste and a Stencil.

Made some stamping here and there and used a Lindy’s Gang spray to add color.

Next step was to paint all the Dusty Attic chipboards with the Finnabair acrylic paints.

When everything was glued down I added some art stones and glass glitter and beads. The final touch was made with some splatters with white gesso.

 

Paper used:

 

I hope you enjoyed my project!

Thank you for stopping by!

Hello sweet Maja fans.

Lenet here , today it’s my turn to bring you some inspiration.

Today I have this Christmas card for you made with the wonderful Christmas collection Joyous winterdays and Monochromes- Shades of Winterdays.

For the card topper / centerpiece I made a rosette  using the Tim Holtz minipaper rosettes die.

I used a a 1.5″ circle puch for  the Santa picture , it comes from the vintage frost Basics 14th of December sheet.

The scallop circles underneath are made with  Spellbinders Nestabilities.

Behind it all you see a snowflake made with the snowflake die  of the Winter trails collection from studio Light.

 

I added an seambinding bow and some “snow” made with paper texture paste from Finnabair to complete the card and winter feeling.

Thank you for visiting , I hope you like the christmas card I made for you and that it gave you inspiration to get crafty.

Make shure you come back for lots more inspiration given by the other wonderful Maja Girls.

Take Time To Relax

Baby it’s cold outside! 🙂 We’re just having the first snowfall this season and it really makes you think of Christmas – but before we get into the holiday mood, I have a card to share focusing on different matters:

When life gets busy and we hurry to take care of so many things daily, we often forget to also relax properly. This card is supposed to remind a certain very busy bee to spend more time resting and enjoying life. Shouldn’t we all? 🙂

I made the card using various bits of papers to create a cozy scene with some stamped motives. First I layered some papers to make the walls of the room and then added various stamped images.

I coloured the girl with Distress inks and used the paper piecing technique for the armchair: stamped the image twice, on cardstock and on the patterned paper, cut out the seat, layered the two pieces and then added some shadows to make the seat more dimensional-looking:

I like the way it turned out a little dimensional but still able to go into an envelope 🙂

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Whiff of Joy, Inkadinkado; button: Prosvet; pearls: my stash.

And that is all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later!

“Memories are timeless treasures of the heart” by Tina Ollett

Hello and welcome Maja fans. Tina Ollett with you today to share a project created using the gorgeous collection of Vintage Autumn Basics. I hope you enjoy this layout which I have titled

“Memories are timeless treasures of the heart”.

I decided to go with the colours of the clothes my little girl was wearing in the photo. She had camoflague shorts on so the greens in this were quite dark. To highlight this green I decided to lighten the papers by distressing and sanding all of the layers that I used for this project. I have listed the papers that I have used to do this project below.

No IV

no.VII BS

No. X bs

No. V

The addition of Dusty Attic chipboards were added in to help frame the photo. And adding this to the photo prompted me to wrap some garden vines and frames around the chipboards.

I have added in some moss and art stones. Here you can see the lovely distressed layers.

 I have also made some resin moulds of the bird and Window and Shutters. They are so cute. The bird above and the windows and shutters below.

Some more close-ups for you.

 

Thanks for popping by today. I will see you back here next month. Until then take care and happy scrapping.

Pink Christmas

Hi everyone! It is Camilla again here, with a pink Christmas card for a change. I made this card for the magazine Ett Trykk’s Christmas edition. And I have used some pinkish shade papers from the gorgeous Vintage Frost Basics Collection.

I have added several layers with the papers, and also used some on to the cute tags.

The text “God Jul” is made with a die from Papirdesign. God Jul means Merry Christmas 🙂

I have made the flowers out of Foamiran sheets and flower dies. I use my heat gun to make them shrink and curl up. Under the flowers I have put some Sisal grass.

The image is from Magnolia, and I have used Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers for my colouring.

The texts on the tags are from Stempelglede. The tags are made with dies from Magnolia. And I have used a Go Kreate die for the whole card.

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

Take care,
