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.

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!

Kerstin

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,

Congrats

Hello Lenet here , today I bring you this masculine card made with papers from the Denim and friends collection, and some car pictures from the vintage romance honeymoon sheet.

This card can be used for a birth day but also as a congratulations card for someone who just got his drivers license.

In fact I made this one with the intention to play along with challenge  that wanted a congratulations with your drivers license card, but you had to use the given sketch too.

I was so busy making this card I totally forgot about the sketch. Oh wel I just make another one .

 Jennifer Snyder here with a calming card made with the gorgeous Denim & Friends collection.  This collection works perfectly for both masculine and feminine projects.

I opted to take a more masculine approach by crafting a nautical card and accenting the fabulous teal colors in the collection.
These are the papers used from the Maja Design, Denim & Friends collection:
Heartbreaker (B side)
Streetwear (B side)
Sunbleached

 I thought the little bit of lace looked a bit like waves – while my gems looked like bubbles sparkling in the ocean from the sun.  It’s all about relaxation.

The dies used on this card are from an older Spellbinders nautical sailboat die  Die D-Lites Nautical Etched Die S2-226 and a current Spellbinders die by Becca Feeken.
