Hello our blog fans. The wedding season has started. That’s why is a time for using the “Sofiero” Collection again. It’s one of my favourite papers to use for this occasion. Today I created two cards :
Hello sweet Maja fans, today it’s my turn again to give you some inspiration
I’m so in love with the Maja papers , I find it so heartbreaking to throw the left overs away so I always save almost every snippet I have left .
These snippets are great for smaller project like cards.
This one I made with left overs from my last layout that I made using the summertime collection.
Like my layouts I use foamtape for my cards as well to build layers and dimension.
For the leaves I used dies from my favorite things and cut them out of the celery/sage paper from the shade of sofiero monochromes
And again I used the cut out roses from the smell the roses paper, and tucked some folded flat prima flowers behind the big white flower from wild orchid crafts.
Thank you for watching and I hope I gave you some inspiration.
Hello dear Maja fans.
Today it’s my turn again to inspire you and this time I have a tutorial of how I made this lay out for you.
For this one I used the beautiful papers of the summertime collection.
For the background I used the backside of Flowers every where. I high-lighted the area where want my to make my composition with some gesso
While the gesso is drying I cut out some roses out of the smell the roses sheet, those I will tuck behind the picture and papers later.
When the gesso is dry I made splatters with Lindy’s flat fabio”s sidewalk chalk and queen of hearts red.
Than I added some random stamping when the splatters were dry. To see what the stamp and what color ink I like and want to use,
I did some test stamping at the place that will be covered with the papers. This way I can have a better look at what feels right for me.
I decided to use Pink petunia from versaMagic.
After choosing the papers I want behind my picture, cutting them in the right size I distress the edges with mt paperdistresser from Making Memories
I have this one for I think 10 years used it a lot and really love it. I tried other distressers when the were introduced but always went back to using this one.
For sticking the papers on to the papers I use foamtape because it gives your layout some demension.
I always stick it in the middle so you can tuck flowers or other embellies behind it later on.
Because i own a lot of supplies I never used I gave myself the challenge to try to use some oldies on every project I make from this layout on..
This time I took these Prima flowers. I crunched them to these flowers and tucked them with the roses .
I love the the way the look now so I’m sure I will use this more often in the future.
After sticking the papers and picture on to the background , I embellished it with roses from Prima, badges from cuts2luv , pearls from the dollarstore.
The leaves are made using Monochromes shade of Sofiero – Celery/Sage with dies from My favorite things and the swirly ones I think from Marianne Design.. and l tucked the roses I cut out earlier between the layers of the papers.
The edge with the little hearts is made with a punch from Martha Stewart. the word Sweet is a chippy from dusty attic that I colored with black embossing powder.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that it inspired you .
Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer with you today. I have prepared the large album (although the size is only 20 by 20 cm), by large I mean the amount of work, papers, details, photos that I have used in it.
Its the young and beautiful couple who got married in Australia but the girl is from Russia.
So from Russia with love… I have made it using the fabrics that I picked in blue/grey palette.
While it all started with the Vintage Romance collection, then I have added some other papers, as there were also does marine style photos. What I love about Maja papers, that they blend together so beautifully…
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.
Now on to my cards……
