Hello Maja Friends,
August – my favorite Summer month, though it is the last before the dull and rainy days come. However I like it more than any month.
So that is why I enjoy looking through the pictures taken this summer and to create something that is associated with this particular month.
I combined several Summer collections for my Layout – Summertime, Summer Crush and Life in the Country.
I tried to keep the red and greens on my layout, using the paper layers, and added some embellishments of yellow and orange.
I also stretched the colors from the photo – soft blue and pumpkin and played with the acrylic paints .
I added some fussy cutting, though I mixed the greens and reds from almost the same patterned papers.
So it’s time to enjoy each and every day this Summer, hope you will follow my advice.

Hello sweet Maja friends, I hope you have just a great summer as I have.
We have lots of sun for a while now with very nice warm temperatures. Only thing not so nice is that is that my craft room is at the attic and it’s super hot up there now.
But I did manage to make you this card. I used the summer crush collection for it.
I cut three pieces of paper one a little smaller than the other one , distressed the edges and stuck them together with foamtape..
Took two straws and tied them together with a piece of lace and seambinding some flowers , two art boubles , a bit of sisal , a sentiment, and glued it all on the card.
Than I added a little paper texture paste on the leaves , some withe splashes with white ink and voila, my card is done.
Hope you enjoy it and gives you some inspiration to create your own card.
Thank you very much for your visit. Make shure you come back tomorrow to see some more lovely work from one of the other MajaGirls.
Hello our blog friends. Today I would like to show you my mini tutorial for a childish card. I bought one of the most popular metal dies from Sizzix (than’s Marta for you help ! ) and finally after a few weeks I managed to use it !
- I was looking for a pastel and sweet paper collection – Summer Crush was just perfect.
- I used some of my metal dies and cut the elements to use with my composition.
- Added some laces, flowers and created the base.
- Painted edges of the elements with Distress Vintage Photo ink.
- Put all elements together.
- Added flowers, chipboards, splashed my card with the white ink.
Hope you will like my inspiration. Hugs, Paulina
Hi everyone! Here I am back with a confirmand card using the lovely Summer Crush papers. With doilies and a straw.
It is Confirmand-time here in Strandebarm now. And here comes one of the cards I have made. I just love the images in the Summer Crush collection. And this is just so beautiful and dreamy. And a perfect match to the papers.
I have cut out the “Konfirmant” text with a die from Papirdesign using the Maja dotted paper.
The flowers are from Petaloo and Wild Orchid Crafts. I have places sissal grass behind them. And some cheese cloth behind the image.
And here is the back of the lollipop, to write a greeting on.
Here is the list of papers used:
