Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout with the Vintage Romance. I chose a photo I’ve taken during my trip in Prague of the special statue designed by Eva Blahová: the dress is a knitting.

As usual, I primed the background with clear gesso. Then I added a design with a stamp. I embossed the stamp image with a sticky powder to adhere some gold foil.

I added a second design with a stencil and clear crackle paste. I let dry naturally to allow the crackle to appear.

While the crackle paste was drying I die cut some leaves in a watercolor paper. I colored them with some Twinkling H2O and embossed them.

I cut some papers to add under the photo and I glued all the embellishments: flowers, leaves, and some doily’s scraps.

When done, I colored the background with bright colors to remind the photo.

I finished the layout with mica flakes and micro beads.

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. Visit me at www.pbhobby.blogspot.com

First Communion Boy Box

Hello there, dear Visitors to the Maja Design blog!

Do you remember the First Communion exploding box I shared last time? That was a girl version, and I decided I need a boy verion as well 😉 And so I selected some blue and brown papers and here it is:

I used the Summertime papers – and believe it or not, my choice was mainly because of this gorgeous roses paper I chose for the box sides :) Just look how beautiful it is! I also added some Sofiero papers as the collections go well together :)

I selected flowers in matching colour for the box lid:

The inside of the box is mostly the same as the girl’s box:

And so there’s the stamped boy image with the cross and flower cluster:

…the strip of paper for sliding in money:

…and a chipboard chalice decorated with flowers:

Maja Design papers are perfect for elegant or formal occasions, their subtle, classic designs and delicate colour palettes perfectly match the chosen theme. I really like how this boy box turned out!

I used the following supplies:

Other: stamps: Whiff of Joy, Lemonade; chipboard: Scrapiniec, Anemone; dies: Magnolia, Spellbinders; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; Distress inks, glitter: Ranger;  wax string, bling, washi tape: my stash.

 

See you later!

“Adore” by Tina Ollett

Hello and welcome Maja followers!

Tina Ollett with you here today to share my next Design Team creation. Last time I was here I shared something a little rustic /country, so this time around I have decided on something Shabby Chic to showcase this gorgeous photo of my two girls. And what better collections to use to create this with, but the ever gorgeous

Vintage Spring Basics and the Vintage Summer Basics.

Vintage-Spring-Basics-P

Vintage-Summer-Basics-P

Just perfect to create that pretty shabby page.

This I have titled “Adore”………

2017-05-08 Adore 010 (1024x1022)

 I used the Vintage Spring Basics 7th of May as my background page but I firstly cut a photo mat from the centre to save on paper. I then layered torn Vintage Summer Basics 1922 and the Vintage Springs Basics 4th of May over this. When creating shabby layouts I like to leave large areas of the white paper core to give it an complete border and it also saves on sanding or inking.

2017-05-08 Adore 007 (768x1024)

Here you can see the layered torn papers and above that the photo mats with distressed and sanded edges.

2017-05-08 Adore 008 (768x1024)

I have layered over the top of the background page two sections of lace. I have run a piece of seam binding through the top piece of the lace and I tied it in a bow at the right side of the photo where it hangs to hold the chipboard title “Adore”. This chipboard piece was simply dressed in gesso and Liquid Pearls was swiped across and around the edges to highlight the titled.

2017-05-08 Adore 026 (768x1024)

I love to create flower clusters, and this one was no exception. I used leftovers from many of my flower baskets that sit under my desk. They were all whitewashed with gesso to keep in with the shabby chic design. To complete the layout I added in some Kaisercraft paper leaves, a Dusty Attic frame which was dressed in Platinum Liquid Pearls and cut into several pieces and also a little cheesecloth.

Well that is all from me today. I hope you have enjoyed popping by. Until next time, take care and happy crafting.

Gift envelope for a birthday boy

Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer with you today. My son is getting older and is being invited to birthday parties more often. This time around we were asked to give a gift card to the toy shop as a present. So of course I wanted to pack it nicely. I coloured in the image that suits the papers and the boyish colors (LOTV image with prismacolor pencils) and then created this envelope.

The part with the boy is sliding and then you can open the envelope.

Have a lovely weekend,
