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.

Layout

Hello my dear friends!!!

It’s Mary here with you today and I have a new layout to share with you.

As you may already know, I love finding my photos on Pinterest and this time, while I was searching I found that beautiful photo. So, I choose paper from the ”I Wish” collection and combined it with some beautiful flowers and a few metal embellishments. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

For my background, I used the ”I Wish For Peace and Joy” paper. 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 continued by coloring my page with Lindy’s sprays ”Danny Zuko’s Denim”, ”Green with Envy Green” and ”Grab a Guy Gold”.

Closer 2

I heat embossed all the chipboards with the ”Orbit Olive Gold” Lindy’s embossing powder. As usual all the chipboards I used are 2crafty.

When everything was glued down, I added some copper micro beads and made some splatters with white acrylic artists ink.

Here is a paper bag I have decorated with gorgeous papers from the collection I wish.

I-wish-P

Only days ago I came back from a holiday in beautiful Croatia! I stayed in a beautiful small village called Cavtat, just outside the city Dubrovnik. I was told that the people in Dubrovnik first settled down in Cavtat, before they had to escape and settled down in Dubrovnik. I guess thats why they built that fantastic city wall -to keep the enemies away. In Croatia it was still Summer, and blue sky every day! Inspite of that I manage to get the flu and sinusitis. Luckily this happened the day before we went home, so I really enjoyed my time there.

But because of all this, I had no new card to show you. This paper bag was published in the magazine Ett Trykk last February. But I have saved it for the blogs when it was time to show some winter/Christmassy inspirations. I have made it to show my style of crafting.

The image from Magnolia is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers.

I have decorated with different types of flowers, cheese cloth, wycinanka, die cuts and pearls.

I have added some Frantage around the image, which is matching the colours of the papers perfectly. The edges are sewed with my sewing machine.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

Hello our blog friends. This time I would like to show you my first Christmas Card. I received the Christmas paper collections a long time ago. Couldn’t wait to use them! Finally I can say – the season for the Christmas cards has started ! :) Here is my first proposal :

Christmas Card

I cut out the Santa Claus from the “I wish – Ephemera” paper sheet, then created the background by adding layers one by one. Chipboard, paper flowers, some soft pom-poms and little bells.

Do you feel this magical atmosphere of Christmas here  ? I do :) Hope I will inspire some of you to  creating the Christmas cards, decorations etc. a little bit earlier. Hope this card is a good sign and I will find time to create more projects like this. Hugs, Paulina

Goodmorning lovely Maja Fans,

Today I am showing you a baby layout using a picture of a beautiful baby girl en the always pretty “Vintage Summer Basics” & “I Wish” collection on the background. Also we are promoting “PETALOO” flowers this month from the 12th – 24th and on this layout you will see a bunch of them. The Petaloo promotion ended yesterday but I was in bed with a nasty respiratory tract infection and got some medication for it so hopefully they will kick in soon. I could not help myself on using their flowers again on my layout so I combined Auntique Rose {item #1837-059} with the Antique Mauve {item #1836-070} and some of the left overs from the teal color.

This layout was also based on this months challenge at the Cuts2luv where I am a guest designer this month & next month. I started my layout by inking the edges of my background sheet with some Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays then I stamped a script and dot clear stamp randomly on my sheet after that I splattered three different sprays on it. I added a stencil on the background too…I cut out four doilies by Cheery Lynn in two sizes and added them in the lower right part of my layout and behind my picture.

Then I treated my chipboard with different mediums and placed them on my layout where I thought it looked nice then I build my page with the flowers and flairs. I finished my layout by adding some sequins, prills, mica flakes, pearlescents and some word strips.
