Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today!

The wedding season is slowing down a bit, but still the wedding bells can be heard each Saturday 😉 And so it is reasonable to have a stock of wedding cards and gifts at hand. Therefore for my today’s post I decided to make a wedding exploding box for those who wish to complete their wishes with some cash too 🙂

I combined two collections in the box, and they are both perfect not only because of beautiful colours and elegant patterns, but also because of their names! Mix Vintage Romance with Celebration and you have a perfect wedding project.

I matched the flowers I used for the box with the printed ones of the Engagement sheet.

Inside the box are the usual slots for money – the sentiments say: for the crib, for the shared nest and for the journey of your dreams – as well as the space for writing in wishes:

The filigree chipboard cake I used perfectly matches the flourishes of the papers! I decorated it with mini flowers and satin ribbon:

And how do you give cash presents to the newlyweds? Just an envelope or something more elaborate?

Here’s what I used to make the exploding box romantic and flowery:

Other: flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard cake: Wycinanka.pl; dies: Crealies; ribbons, cheesecloth, pearls: my stash.

 

And that is all for today, thank you for visiting the blog and feel welcome to drop by any time to find more inspiration 🙂

Good day and welcome to the Maja Designs blog.

Tina Ollett with you today to share my project for August. This project “II” was created using papers from the gorgeous Celebration collection in shades of pinks and browns. I wanted to make something very pretty using these cute photos of my youngest and our boy Rafael. They are especially good friends and are often found rolling around out on the grass together in the late afternoons when the sun has gone down. I captured these photos not so long ago and decided to use 3 of them in a series rather than just one photo like I usually do.

I have used pieces Jubilee back and front by tearing sections and layering them top and bottom of the layout over the top of To the party. I kept this layout very clean and have only used medias on the Dusty Attic chipboards . The photos I chose were changed to sepia colours and cut down and laid inside the doily chipboards to help highlight and frame the photos.

To help embellish my layout I have used some coordinating Lilac flowers from 49andMarket.

I popped a little lace in between layers of the papers and also I have used some tea stained muslin to help keep my layout soft and shabby.

Some of the chipboards below have been spritzed with glimmermist and then highlighted with a little white gesso.

I have also added in some pretty pearls to help compliment my layout.

Papers used from the Maja Design “Celebration” collection are below. Just gorgeous aren’t they!?

Hello sweet Maja fans.

Today it’s my turn again to show you something I made with gorgeous Maja papers .

This time I bring you a Happy Birthday card.

For this card I used two papers from the Vintage Romance collection, Love poetry and When I saw you,

as base I used  Lavender Rose from the Monochromes – Shades of Celebration

 

I took the right upper corner of the piece of paper i had on top and rolled it half way back.

I used A frame of tattered angels en put in halfway behind the roll , added some flowers and finished it of with some pearl swirls  from want 2 scrap.

I used some sentiment stamps from Paper Sweeties for the birthday message.

the label I used for the sentiment is made using a corner of a spellbinders die

Close up of the roll on top, and  on of the flowers with the frame underneath  it.

Thank you very much for visiting today, I hope I have given you some inspiration with my Birthday card.

Hello and a big welcome today Maja fans. Tina O with you to share a little project that I have created today for my post here. Sometimes I run late with projects and they are the days I find I am the most productive. In saying this they are also usually my most favourite projects. And this one is no exception.

 

This is “Once upon a time………

I have used the Celebration collection. I am so drawn to pokadots and also black. Although this isn’t a true black I still am very drawn to it. And because it is not a true black I always think it is much easier to co-ordinate a multitude of colours with it.

I have used a photo of my gorgeous daughter at her formal this year. She looked absolutely gorgeous I think but I am bias of course. A real princess. All she needed was a crown. For my project I decided to draw the colour from her dress into the layout by using browns and greens along with the black and cream from the Celebration papers. The papers I used are listed for you below.

I tore Let’s Celebrate to sit over the top of the polkadots of Let’s Party. It didn’t add any mixed media just lots of soft laces and some gorgeous flowers to do all the embellishing of this page for me. I love every now and then to keep it very simple and clean.

 

The chipboards have all been dressed in Black Distress Ink and then wiped over with White Gesso and a little White Liquid Pearls to give a shimmer.

I love lace and recently I attented the Brisbane Expo where I found some of the most gorgeous pieces ever. Some of them I have used here. They have been cut into sections to sit around the flower clusters and to help take away from the black of the page.

I have added many layers of lace and chipboards to keep the focus on the prettiness of my background paper.

The gorgeous flowers used here are from 49andMarket. I have used the Aloe and Sandcastle colours to help coordinate with the page.

Well that is all from me today. I hope you have enjoyed my project and your visit to our blog.

Until next time happy crafting and take care.
