Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

Today is St. Valentine’s Day, a celebration of love and devotion. What a better way to celebrate love and devotion than a marriage? And what a better way to celebrate a marriage than to use the Celebration collection? 🙂 And so I combined the two and created this wedding exploding box:

Perhaps the colour palette I chose is not a typical wedding set of colours, but they look so elegant to me! For the outer sides I decided on the dark brown roses pattern and added a mauve-sand flower cluster on the top lid:

Traditionally, inside walls are decorated with delicate patterned papers and have little theme pockets to put money gifts into: for a new house, for a honey moon, for a crib and the fourth wall is for writing in wishes:

In the centre I placed an intricate chipboard cake that I decorated with a lace bow and mini roses in matching colours:

I really like the way the box turned out, elegant and light! What do you think?

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: Spellbinders; chipboard: Wycinanka.pl, ribbon, lace: my stash.

And that’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you soon!

Hello everyone,

happy Monday.I made a very soft shabby chic card in pink and creme combo using the new “Celebration” collection.I created lots of layers using papers,die cuts and laces.I have used pink floral print papers for the card and matted it with creme color papers from the monochromatic collection.The papers are distressed with white gesso on the edges using dry brush to tone down the design.

I have used a lovely delicate chipboard frame from Scrapiniec as focal point and used couple of prima flowers to decorate my card.I used some die cut flowers and leaves between the layers which are cut with pink and creme pattern papers from the collection.

As final touch i used couple of printed butterflies and pink rhine stones.

Some more close ups..

Maja papers used: All dressed up, Jubilee ,The table is set BS, Champagne BS, Pearl BS

Happy Sunday Maja Fans.

Tina with you today to share my latest project using the gorgeous new release collection of “Celebration”. I again used more photos from my wedding day. The photos of my two eldest children and my hubby is a truly special moment. and I love the naturalness of it all. As always when photographing children they don’t always do what you want and in these photos you can see that that  is exactly what happened, but I think that is what makes them extra special photos.

“IV”

The first gorgeous piece from Celebration that I used is called “Anniversary”, a totally stunning piece I really couldn’t got past using this, but I decided to also use the the bs of this piece as it is equally gorgeous. I tore my piece turned the bottom over and then went to work embellishing my page.

I wanted to keep my layout stylish and a little elegant. And since our photos were taken out in the garden I decided to add some garden elements to my layout. For example the chipboard birdbath and old shabby window shutters and of course lots and lots of beautiful florals.

Above you can see the Dusty Attic chipboards that I used and the textures and colours which I have dressed my embellishments in. I wanted to keep the colours quite neutral and soft.

I decided to use two photos from the shoot both where my son was obviously not concentrating on the camera. Just too cute I reckon !! I also cut a clock from the Maja Designs Vintage Summer collection and added it to my layout atop of the smaller lacey heart photo frame and I added the Roman Numerals “IV” for the 4 of us. Thought it was quite fitting for my layout.

And to keep with the elegance of the page I have coloured some of my chipboards and flowers and leaves with a gold in the colour of Miner Miner from Shimmerz Paints. It is a stunning way to highlight pieces on a layout. I have also added in some cutouts of the flowers from a second piece of Anniversary and tucked them in and around the flowers clusters. You can never have too many flowers I think.

That is all from me today. I hope your weekend has been kind to you and you have had some time for crafting.

Until next time take care, hugs………..

Hello our blog fans. Today I’m continuing to play around with the Celebration collection.  This time I chose the motive with the lady and tried to create stylish card. Take a look, please :

I used the metal embellishment, chipboard in a vintage style from Scrapiniec. The lace on the right site came from my treasure’s drawer. It’s a really good idea to ask your mum, grannie or even friends – they used to have some treasure’s boxes at home. I love the colours of these papers – definitely !

Hope you will like my card. Let’s celebrate ! Hugs, Paulina

Goodmorning sweeties,

My husband’s aunt has three beautiful daughters and the oldest one just has a daughter herself {so there will a layout with the little Fenna really soon}, they always take pictures together and I love using them on my work. The one you see on the left is the oldest and her name is Annelijn, the one in the middle is Lidewij and the youngest is Marielot you see her on the right….For this layout I used the pretty NEW “Celebration” collection with a touch of yellow from the “Vintage Spring Basics”collection. The chipboards I used are by The Dusty Attic and the flowers are the new ones mixed with the older 49 and Market collections.

First I cut the Anniversary sheet in half then I put the outer edges together and cut about two cm’s from the outer edges what first were the inner edges {can you still follow lol} Then I turned the sheet 90 degrees after that I added a pretty grammar stamp by our lovely Pascale and a script stamp by Gabrielle. Later on I sprayed with some lindy’s and added a hearts stencil to my background sheet. All de edges of the paper I inked and distressed. Some of the chipboard pieces were already black and the other ones I gessod black and at the end I used a paintbrush with some white gold wax.

Maja Design papers used: Celebration: Anniversary & Glamour, Vintage Spring Basics: 1st of March. Mono Celebration-Pearl & Mono Celebration-Old Brass.

  

Thank you so much for your visit I hope I have inspired you to play with your Maja Design papers you have in you stash or even order new products I have used here. Did you already enter in our moodboard? We would love to see your work 😉

Have a lovely day!4
