Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Ska vi ta en Fika? collection I chose a photo I’ve taken during an event at the castle of l’Islette (Loire Valley, France).

The Stag Man by Pascale B.

I stamped randomly with a black ink before priming the background with clear gesso. Next, I added a design with a stencil and clear crackle paste.

When the paste was dried, I splattered some white gesso and different metallic paints. Next, I replaced the stencil and I added some waxes on top of the crackle paste.

I die cut some leaves and a doily. I painted the vines with different acrylic paints and the summer leaves with waxes.

I painted a few flowers with metallic paints as well as the doily in violet. I colored also some Art Stones with a black ink.

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

To finish the layout I added some glitters.

Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

So nice of you to visit the Maja Design blog today, it’s been a long time since I last created something about three months I think. Not that I didn’t want to but my little family was struggeling with some issues and now we are all on the mend again with me having more time to get creative yeahh…. For today I would like to show you a layout that has been on my desk for that last three months {in pieces tho…}. I used two of my favorite collections Nyhavn & Denim and Friends.

On this layout I used some pretty lace from Tresors de Luxe, I also added a stencil with some paste and ink with a script stamp by our very own Pascale. The picture I got from pinterest. My uncle from Florida brought me some pearl bling when he visited last May that I used one this layout aswell.

I got myself a new phone and I am still figuring out how I can make my pictures look like the actual colors as my layouts are. So some of the close ups look a bit yellow sorry for that.

Maja Design papers used: Denim & Friends: Fashion & Sunbleached, Nyhavn: a dockside in bloom.


  

Thank you very much for your visit, I hope I have inspired you to go and create something beautiful with your Maja papers. Have a wonderful & sunny day!

Love xoxo

Hello friends,

It’s time for a new inspiration summer layout.

I love to use structure paper and try out new ideas.

I had some leftovers from a white wallpaper and thought, a beautiful texture,

can wallpaper be inked in?, which color is suitable?

I used a piece of wallpaper in the centre of my maritim layout,

a perfect addition for me to the beautiful papers from Maja Design.

 

 

some details

 

I tried with Glimmer Mist from Tatterd Angels and I must say, it’s a wonderful amazing effect, because it doesn’t spread evenly

and the end result will be very natural.

I used also some cutting dies from Joy craft (waves, kelp) and added some

handmade embellishmets made with molds and modelling clay.

I wish you all a wonderful summertime!

 Jennifer Snyder here sharing how much I adore the seaside collection by Maja Design called Life by the Sea.  I find this collection to be soothing, peaceful and calming.

 

These are the papers I used from Life by the Sea by Maja Design
Regatta (B side)
Bottle Message ( A and B side)
In order to give my card an extra pop of nautical fun, I added a chipboard heart net from Creative Embellishments and a flair button.  I think the embellishments complement the papers perfectly.

 

Here is one last image to show the dimension of the card.
 Thanks for stopping by today.  Happy crafting.

Hello Maja Friends,

Summer is always full of wedding ceremonies, so each year I am busy with creating wedding cards for my friends

Normally I make more than just a couple of cards. So this time I made 2 different cards

I decided to mix the collections again, I love how they work together, no matter which collection you use.

I used mostly Vintage Spring Basics collection, focused on the blue and beige tones and added lace embellishments

Also I made some fussy cutting, and even cut out the roses form the Summertime collection

So you can see the collections are totally a perfect match.

Products used:

Prima Marketing Flowers, Spellbinders Dies
