Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

Today I’d like to share some projects I made with my lovely Maja Design papers all the flowers you will see on my projects are all hand made with dies. I love making winter projects although I dislike winter time here in The Netherlands the days are getting colder and the night longer. I love the getting cozy part but the rest not so much. My first project is a 8×8 layout made with different Maja Designs collections.

As I said I love playing with snow effects and I did that massively here on this layout…can you see which collections I have used here? Don’t you just love that picture? Although I dislike winter time I love snow and the peacefulness it brings….hope it will snow this year.

Hello Maja Friends,

it’s only October on the calendar, however the time flies so fast and soon the most magic time will come. I mean Christmas time and I guess you know, it’s better to start earlier all the preparations.

So I decided to follow this , and created a set of Christmas cards

I used the past collection – Home for the Holidays, so classy and cozy

My main focus this time were the ornaments that I made using Spellbinders dies.

You can check my video tutorial that I filmed for you

Everything that glitters works great for Christmas projects, I guess it’s a good idea to mix silver and gold together too.

I chose plaid and tiny snowflakes backgrounds for my cards, I like the smooth and mute red and brown colors the paper has in this collection.

I hope you have liked my cards and the tips I shared in the video, and would be happy if you could use them for your Christmas cards.

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Home for Holidays collection. I chose one of my photomontages.

The Bermuda Triangle by Pascale B.

I started to stamp some leaves and some text with different Archival inks. When happy with the result, I primed the background with clear gesso. Next, I added a design with a stencil and clear crackle paste. I let dry.

In the meantime, I covered the shells with white crackle paste. I primed the boat with white gesso, then with clear gesso, and finally, I was able to add some colors.

With the same inks, I colored some Art Stones as well as natural moss.

I added some shine to the flowers with inks. And when the shells were dry, I primed them with clear gesso before coloring them too.

As the background was dry, so I added some colors with the same inks I have used to color the different embellishments.

I cut some papers to add under the photo and I glued all the embellishments with a 3D gel. To finish the layout I added some microbeads.

Masculine Cards

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

The day after tomorrow in Poland we celebrate Father’s Day – and for that occasion I have made some masculine cards :) Even though I’m the only woman in my house, I still find masculine cards a bit difficult, it always takes me more time to make one than with romantic flowery cards 😉 But with fantastic Vintage Romance images of handsome dudes the task is much easier 😉

I decided to use up some leftovers of the Home for the Holidays collection and made these two cards:

mdmen

The first card is more universal, as the stamped sentiment says “Best wishes” – and so it could be presented on Father’s Day too 😉

mdmen1

I layered two papers in the background and matted the central image with a die-cut gear border and hand-cut tags:

mdmen2

Then I added a metal charm, some vintage brads and acrylic gems to give the card more character and colour :)

mdmen3

The other card is aa birthday card and a vintage car image as the central piece.

mdmen4

Then I literally used up the smallest bits and scraps by punching squares and making a patchwork background :)

mdmen6

I also added some chipboard gears and a metal charm on a piece of plaid ribbon:

mdmen5

How do you like them? :)

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: die: Joy!Crafts; stamps: Lemonade; chipboard: Wycinanka; ribbon, brads: Rayher; acrylic gems: ScrapBerry’s; charms, string: my stash.

 

See you later!

Thank You Dear Mother

Goodmorning Maja fans,

Oh how I love my beautiful Maja Design papers…..today I’d like to show you a little card with handmade flowers and a lot of bling which is totally not me but I loved making this card. This card is made out of four different collections but my base was the pretty “Summertime” collection. This is a card I made for my mother for the upcoming mothers day hihihi yes I am pretty early this time….

20170210_092116_HDR1

It’s a easel card made out of cream card stock and the flowers are made out of dies and I finished them off with some glass glitter and some mica powder to give it more shine. Also I added some bling swirls, some shine spray & cream prills.
