Good morning, dear Visitors, welcome to Maja Design blog :)

In my last post I shared two cards I made using our latest release, the absolutely gorgeous Denim&Friends collection. But what I like most about Maja collections is that they’re so versatile! And if you’re wondering whether you could use these papers for some feminine projects, I can tell you: yes, of course! Just take a look:

Don’t they look totally feminine and romantic? :)

The first card is almost monochromatic, based on the turqouise pattern of the collection. I die-cut a decorative corner and placed the flowre cluster on it, adding some chipboard filigree ornaments and string bows:

I stamped and embossed the sentiment directly on the background paper and then made it pop out by mounting a frame upon it. Then I added some golden drops as a final touch:

I used a similar design for the other card:

mdfem4

I die-cut two corners and put flowers and chipboard swirls on both of them. I stamped and embossed the sentiment as well, but placed it on a strip of vellum and mounted between the corners:

How do you like them? :)

Here’s the list of supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: die: Spellbidners; stamps: Lemonade; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard: Scrapiniec, Miszmasz Papierowy; gold drops, string: my stash

 

See you later!

“Picture Perfect” by Tina Ollett

Hello and welcome. Tina O back with you today.

My newest creation, “Picture Perfect” has been designed using the gorgeous Denim and Friends collection. This is such a versatile collection that I decided to do a beachside layout. My favourite thing to create, as we live in one of the most beautiful beach inspired places in the world ! Much of our spare time and holidays are spent at the beachside, therefore I have an endless supply of photographs from these memorable moments.

I have kept my layout very simple using a smaller sized portrait colour photo of my youngest daughter at the beach getting very very muddy. I caught her unawares as you can see from the photo. Denim and Friends has many gorgeously stunning pages that would work perfectly for a beachside background page. Today I decided to use the bs of Fashion to start my layout. I primed it with gesso and did some stenciling using the Dusty Attic Confetti stencil with crackle texture paste. Once it dried a did some colouring with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink and water.

I did lots of layering of chipboards (Dusty Attic) to create a design to work a photo into. These chipboards were dressed in Rust Pastes, Gesso, Distress Inks and Nuvo Embellishment Mousse.

I made some acetate embellishments using 49andMarket’s Sand and Sea stamp set. Other embellishments included a lace motif and beautiful 49andMarket Sea Side Blooms in Sea Breeze colour.

2017-08-01 Picture Perfect 017

I wanted to emulate the mud that my daughter was digging in. To do this I have used fibres coloured with rust pastes. I dried these and gave them a coating of gesso and then randomly wiped over with Rust Pastes. I also adhered over the fibres with some Art Stones with 3D Gloss Gel. And then coloured them using some Nuvo Mousse.

Well that is all from me today. I hope you have enjoyed your visit here today.

Until next time happy scrapping. x

Hi Everyone,

Its Keren Here with a new layout.

I’ve always loved the brick pattern from the Vintage Summer Basics and so I knew I had to incorporate it into a layout during my DT term.

Below is a photo of my husband and daughter and i thought it was so cute.

I framed the photo by die cutting with a frame out of the background paper. The brick paper hid the area where I had cut from.

I'm Keren Tamir a self taught scrapbooker, mixed media artist and designer. Since I was a child, I always loved art. I used to doodle on my notebooks and on anything I could get my hands on. ​ Fourteen years ago I discovered scrapbooking and fell in love with it. One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. Scrapbooking opened a creative door to something that I had longtime forgotten I'd loved. It gave me peace of heart and mind. visit my blog for more inspiration: https://kerentamir.blogspot.ca

Hello dear friends! Evgenia Petzer with you. Today I am showing you the mini album, I have actually put it inside of this box and we gave it as a present to my son’s teacher. As she became a grandmother not so long ago.  I think she was really nicely surprised and this makes me happy, thats what our hobby is about as well, right?

Ok this is a mini album on tags, that I made using Tim Holtz dies and always use my leftovers from other projects, so you will see a mixture of some collections here, but they most are of pink shades:)

the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, lots of ribbons, pearls and chipboard (Russian brand).

Inside the baby album I have put the images from the Sofiero collection for now, later they will be replaced by th photos of the baby girl.razv1 razv2 razv3 razv4

here is the side view of my album:)side_view_albumI have used bits and pieces of left overs, but mostly its these 2 collections

Goodmorning lovelies,

Today I am up on this lovely blog using my precious Maja Design papers. In my last post I added some questions and I will give you those answers in my August 11th post, the same as I give you my tutorial that day. Sorry for that but I had to deal with some serious personal issues so I have not been scrapbooking as much as I wanted to. Today we will be leaving for our well deserved vacation trip for the next seven day we will be enjoying each others company at a camping ground in the south of our little country we are very excited as you can imagine…, for this post I made a 8×8 layout using only Maja Design papers, dies and a flair.

That sweet picture I got from pinterest oh boy how I love that site…here I used several Maja Design collection such as Vintage Autumn Basics, Vintage Baby, I Wish and Vintage Summer Basics. The centers of my big flowers are made with foamballs that I glued on and dipped in mini prills such a lovely effect that has.

On the background I added some spray’s, stamp and paste. But I also stamped the word sweet on the picture I really do love Gabi her word stamps. What I do when making a layout with just paper and dies….firstly I will cut all the dies that I want to use in different colors then I will make the flowers and their centers and put those together.

Then I it is really easy to make it into one whole piece that you like. At the moment I am totally hooked on the amazing flairs by Cuts2luv that I will use it on almost every single project I make. I wetted my papers to disstress is a little more at the edges I also inked the edges first before I did that.
