Hello sweet Maja fans.
A few of the things I love is recycling pretty packaging.
Every time I get a gift or buy something I take a close look at the package and see if I can make something nice out of it.
Good thing I have enough space to store all the interesting items , the only thing I need now is time , lots of time , but think that is a common problem we crafters have.
Anyway I got some scented sticks ( love those too) and the came in this tube .
We had a anniversary and double birthday party coming from friends , the asked money so they could buy something nice that was very expensive.
I think just giving money is boring , so wanted to make a nice package to put it into and I had this tube lying around so cut half of it and made this out of it.
on the top lid I glued a lot of flowers .
Under the lid I glued a satin ribbon that you can pull to take the lid of and it’s also a handle to hold the gift.
and a little birthday card to go with it and voila, gift tube is done.
For this project I used the Celebration Collection , what better papers are there to use for this gift tube than the celebration Collection right?
Flowers are from Wild orchidcrafts , pearls and ribbon from my private stash.
Thank you for visiting.
I hope you like my project for this week and hope I gave you some inspiration for recycling those tubes.
I have more tubes lying around so will be back with another one soon.
Kerstin is back with a vintage layout. I used a very old photo from my ancestors, a beautiful memory for our family.
It’s always a good idea to create with frames on scrapbooking layout.
I added a printed chipboard frame on the lower right side with a very wise saying in it.
The second frame around the photo was made with cutting dies and old crafty paper in weathered look.
fussy cutting flowers from paper sheet ‘You’re invited’ and flowers with
Sizzix Thinlits die ‘Small tattered flowers’ from the papper sheet ‘Glamour bs’
a frame made with craft paper, that’s leftovers from a cutting die
a printed chipboard frame with a wise saying on transparent foil from Scrap FX

Hello dear friends!
Mary here with you sharing my latest layout for my May inspiration. This time I made a colorful page with lots of flowers, laces, chipboards and metal embellishments and I choose a dark paper to combine them. I don’t really remenber if I have already told how much I love that combination. The contrast is just amazing!
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.
For my background I used the ”Ephemera” paper on the back side. To start, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso and I applied a small amount of white gesso behinde my combosition. When it was dried, I added some texture with paper texture paste and a stencil.
I made some stamping here and there and then I heat embossed the patterns with the ”Venus Violet Blue” and the ”Sunset Yellow Orange” Lindy’s Gang embossing powders. Continued by coloring my page with the ”Tea Pot Purple” and the ”Magnolia Magenta Gold” Lindy’s sprays.
I painted the ”Small Scroll #2” flourish chipboard with the Sparks ”Iris Potion” acrylic paint. The ”Clockworks Small” chipboard was also painted with the metallique ”Steampunk Copper” 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!
Thank you for stopping by!
Hello sweet Maja Friends
I think like many of you I always loved Alice in wonderland.
I especially love the Alice movies Tim Burton made , the costumes, the art, make up ..everything.
Recently I rediscovered scrapping at 6 x12inch papers . And I must say it’s really fun to scrap this size .
So one and one makes two and I decided to make a Tim Burton Alice serie in this half size and here you have the first one.
i printed a queen of hearts I found on pinterest and tucked it behind Alice her picture like she is peaking around the corner , nosy as she is.
I added a bunch of roses from wild orchid craft
And a pocket watch, from the white Rabbit.
I used papers of the celebration collection , the strips with text are from Tim Holtz
Soon is Mother’s Day and I want to give a little attention to my mother. I created a mixed media frame in a delicate shabby chic look.
Celebration 6 x 6
I used a simply frame as basic. Firstly I made some ornaments with the help of moulds and air drying modeling clay.
These were glued to the frame with heavy gel medium, I added some metallic sticker too.
Then I painted everything over with Chalky Finish ‘Vintage’ paint from DecoArt.
Now put some heavy white gesso over the embellishments to bring out the texture and details on the frame.
I used paper sheet ‘Birthday’ as background and the beautiful lady from ‘Emphemera’ 12 x 12
little lady was a cut out from the 6 x 6 paper back
I’ve always loved the combination of these colours and the beautiful ‘Celebration’ paper is probably my favourite in the stash.
Cut to fit and complemented with a metal frame from Prima and some blooms, the new frame in altered art was finished.
Suitable to this frame I made two wooden handpainted candle holds with her favourite flowers
and a irish crochet doily.
Thanks for your visit!
Have a beautiful time!
