Hello Maja friends!

Mary with you today to share my inspiration for March. I made a soft romantic page with lots of flowers, laces and chipboards.

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across with that beautiful photo. And, the new gorgeous ”Celebration” collection was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I used the ”All Dressed Up” paper for my background and I added some layers on it with the ”To the Party”, the ”Jubilee” and the ”Good Times” papers.

First, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. I made some stamping here and there and continued by coloring my page with the ”Cotton Candy Pink” and the ”Open Arms Amethyst” Lindy’s Gang spray.

I painted the ”Swirly Frame” chipboard and the word title with the Sparks ”Butterfly Spells” acrylic paint.  The ”Foliage #10” chipboards were also painted with the metallique ”White Pearl” acrylic paint. The chipboards I used are Dusty Attic. 

When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and sprinkled some glitter on them. The final touch was made with some splatters with white ink.

That’s all for today, my friends!

Hi everyone! I hope you are fine!

I have made a lollipop card for today’s post. And I have used beautiful papers from The Celebration Collection.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, image from Magnolia and the butterflies and text are made with a Stempelglede stamp. I have coloured the image with Distress Ink, re-inkers.

I have made an accordion and glued it together into a circle. Then I have added layers with pattern papers and doilies.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today! I wish you a wonderful Sunday! Here comes the list of papers used:

With love,

Hello.  Jennifer Snyder here with you to share a card using the beautiful masculine side of the Celebration collection.  
The vision for this card was to create a birthday gift effect on the face of the card.
In addition to the gorgeous patterned papers from the collection, I also used a sheet from the companion monochrome collection, Shades of Celebration.
Here are the papers I used from the  12×12 Celebration collection:
I added a detailed frame using Spellbinders die called  Tallulah Frill Layering Frame from the Chantilly Paper Lac collection by Becca Feeken.
My flowers are also made using Spellbinders dies.
What I love about this collection is that is can easily be used for masculine or feminine purposes.
Here is another glance at the finished card showing dimension.
Thanks for stopping here.  Happy Crafting.

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Celebration collection. I chose a photomontage I’ve made.

Forest Beauty by Pascale B.

I primed the background with clear gesso. Next, I embossed a stamp design. I added also a design with a stencil and white crackle paste.

While the crackle paste was drying, I primed some leaves and flowers with white gesso, while I painted others with inks.

At the same time, I colored Art Stones with drawing ink and a brown ink. I painted some die cut with the same inks.

Next, I added some color to the background with different inks.

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

To finish the layout, I colored lightly the flowers and the leaves, and I added the Art Stones.

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.

Welcome Maja Friends!

I’m also still creating with our latest amazing ‘Celebration’ collection. As I saw this elegant dancing pair I thought on our annual SemperOperaball in Dresden. It’s a very special and magic event.

”Despite low temperatures, thousands of people will take to the theatre square in front of the Semper Opera House to celebrate the Semper Open Air Ball. While guests watch the gala programme inside, up to 15,000 partygoers will be singing and dancing outside in front of the opera house. In rain, freezing temperatures or under starlit skies – the Semper Open Air Ball transforms the square into the world’s largest dance floor for the locals and guests.”

Therefore I was inspired to make a home decoration piece, it’s a cloche in romantic vintage style.

How you can see you will need not so much materials, main thing is the paper sheet ‘Ballroom dancing’, old music paper, Distress inks and some embellishments how like flowers, lace, feathers and what do you want.

I used as basic a star from a cutting die. After I cut out the pair, I curved the motif with a knitting needle and folded the feets to glue them on. The paper from Maja Design is so stable that it stands alone, but you can stick to support a few more blooms from behind against it.

Now you just need to stick the decoration on.

I rolled up the notebook paper, distressed the edges and created some paper sticks.


I highlighted some places with Stickles ‘Baby Blue’ from Ranger and a wonderful blue feather suitable to the ball gown.

… and your new eyecatcher is ready 🙂

Thanks for your visit!

Greetings from Kerstin 🙂
