Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Celebration collection. I chose a photomontage I’ve made.

Forest Beauty by Pascale B.

I primed the background with clear gesso. Next, I embossed a stamp design. I added also a design with a stencil and white crackle paste.

While the crackle paste was drying, I primed some leaves and flowers with white gesso, while I painted others with inks.

At the same time, I colored Art Stones with drawing ink and a brown ink. I painted some die cut with the same inks.

Next, I added some color to the background with different inks.

I cut a few papers to add under the phot, and I glued all the embellishments.

To finish the layout, I colored lightly the flowers and the leaves, and I added the Art Stones.

Hello, I’m Pascale B. from France.
Since I began to scrap, flowers are part of my layouts, and I gradually started to use mixed media as well. I don’t know how to define my style, perhaps something like free vintage shabby style could be a good definition.

Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer with you today. I am sharing the latest baby boy cover that I have made.

I just love these papers and the baby theme, so I always come back to my favourite mixture of fabric, papers, ribbons, flowers…

I usually take quite a few colors and play with them and some close shades of it. And the mixture of textures gives all that layered, wonderful effect.

some close ups:

Of course its the Vintage Baby collection in use:

have a lovely weekend,

Hello our blog fans. Today I would like to show totally different card. Easy to make and simple. Not all of us like to create projects full of layers, flowers etc. Some prefer simple projects. It doesn’t mean that they are boring – just take a look and let’s create something with me step by step.

  1. Find the chipboard and choose the papers – they need to fit together
  2. Use the white embossing powder to your chipboard
  3. Cut out all the elements from the paper, create the basic composition.
  4. Use the sewing machine and add a bit of elegance to your card.5. If you like – find a simple add ons. Glue everything together and then add some white and black splashes.
  5. You card is ready. Isn’t it lovely ? Hope you will like my today’s inspiration. If you have any question – do not hesitate ask. Used chipboard came from Scrapiniec . Have a lovely day, Paulina

Hello dear Maja fans ,

Today I bring you a dreamy layout  inspired by this months moodboard.

I love moodboards they are alway so inspiring , when I look at one the idea for a layout , card, minialbum or what ever will pop right into my mind.

For this layout i used the papers of two collections : vintage romance – Walk with me, for the base and Vintage Summer Basics -1922on top of it.

Besides that i used a lot of snippets that I placed underneath the picture.


The word Dream is a chippie from dusty attic and all the flowers from 49and market.

Thanks for visiting , hope I gave you some extra inspiration for the moodboard challenge.

Welcome Maja Friends!

I’m also still creating with our latest amazing ‘Celebration’ collection. As I saw this elegant dancing pair I thought on our annual SemperOperaball in Dresden. It’s a very special and magic event.

”Despite low temperatures, thousands of people will take to the theatre square in front of the Semper Opera House to celebrate the Semper Open Air Ball. While guests watch the gala programme inside, up to 15,000 partygoers will be singing and dancing outside in front of the opera house. In rain, freezing temperatures or under starlit skies – the Semper Open Air Ball transforms the square into the world’s largest dance floor for the locals and guests.”

Therefore I was inspired to make a home decoration piece, it’s a cloche in romantic vintage style.

How you can see you will need not so much materials, main thing is the paper sheet ‘Ballroom dancing’, old music paper, Distress inks and some embellishments how like flowers, lace, feathers and what do you want.

I used as basic a star from a cutting die. After I cut out the pair, I curved the motif with a knitting needle and folded the feets to glue them on. The paper from Maja Design is so stable that it stands alone, but you can stick to support a few more blooms from behind against it.

Now you just need to stick the decoration on.

I rolled up the notebook paper, distressed the edges and created some paper sticks.


I highlighted some places with Stickles ‘Baby Blue’ from Ranger and a wonderful blue feather suitable to the ball gown.

… and your new eyecatcher is ready 🙂

Thanks for your visit!

Greetings from Kerstin 🙂
