Hello Maja fans!!!

It’s Mary here with you today sharing my latest layout featuring the beautiful ”Nyhavn” collection.

A sensational layout that was inspired by that beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

detail 1

I used for my background the ”Historical Atmosphere” paper and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”Strolling along the Canal” paper using both sides.

detail 2

I primed the background with white gesso and when it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays ”Hydrangea Blue”, ”Baby Blue Eyes Aqua” and ”Danny Zuko’s Denim” to give some color.

detail 4

I heat embossed the ”Sammi’s Swirls” and the ”Corner Gemma’s” chipboards with ”Oakleaf Olive” Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing powder. The title was treated in the same way. The chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing.

detail 5

To finish, I added some bronze micro beads and made some splatters with FW white ink.

Papers used:

That’s all for today, my friends!

Thank you for stopping by!

Hello dear friends! Evgenia Petzer with you today and I wanted to show you the envelope that I made for a masculine type of present. You can always put there either the gift card or some money.

when it comes to the decoration of the masculine works, I always look for the chipboard, some meat embellishments, die cuts using either kraft or black yardstick. I love to add some black splashes to the cards.

Again, Nyhavn personally for me is a collection with a masculine touch, what do you associate it with?

Have a lovely weekend,

Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer here with you today. Sometimes when you see the collection, you have a certain association with it. So for me Nyhavn collection is strongly associated with the Masculine scrapbooking. Always when I play with it I am finishing with some masculine projects.

This time its 2 cards for a man.

some close ups:

Some tips when working with the men’s projects:

  • add some dark colors as the main accents
  • use some metal embellishments
  • flair buttons, wash tape, clock, star embellishments will always look appropriate

and the second card from the same collection:

Goodmorning Maja friends,

Today I am here with you all to show you a card I made with the lovely “Vintage Baby”collection! I am getting more and more addicted to that collection because of the soft colors and that you have both blue & pink sheets in it. For today it’s a baby boy card with handmade flowers and a rattle shaker with metal pieces in it {also some beads and glass glitter}

I cut out different pieces of the blue & darker brown papers and placed them on top of each other to get more dimension, underneath the last layer I added some cheese cloth and a paper doily that I cut in half. The card is all made out of dies from a manufacturer I design for. Sorry for the different shades in the pictures but we have some bad weather and my camera is acting up!

What is great about using dies is that you can make your own flowers and you don’t have to worry about the colors not fitting well on your work. I always had a problem finding the perfect blue shade color for my work and now that problem is being solved by making my own flowers. Maja Design papers really allows you to make beautiful paper flowers from their collections because of the high quality & thickness of the papers.

Actually I used three other Maja Design collections here too, the blue flowers are made with “Nyhavn”collection! The flower with the beads in the center is made with the “Vintage Romance” collection and the feathers & leaves are from the “Vintage Summer Basics” collection and they all go so well together don’t you think so too??

Maja Design papers used: Vintage Summer Basics: 1905 bs, Nyhavn: Old Townhouses bs, Vintage Romance: Marriage proposal bs, Vintage Baby: It’s a boy bs, Adorable bs, Special Delivery bs & Die cuts bs

Hello dear friends, its Evgenia Petzer with you today. When you think about MajaDesign papers, you always think about the feminine side of these papers, but there are some collections that are also perfect for the Man’s creations.

So I have made the card for man’s birthday using the Nyhavn collection.
