Hello there, dear Visitors to the Maja Design blog!

Do you remember the First Communion exploding box I shared last time? That was a girl version, and I decided I need a boy verion as well ūüėČ And so I selected some blue and brown papers and here it is:

I used the Summertime papers – and believe it or not, my choice was mainly because of this gorgeous roses paper I chose for the box sides :) Just look how beautiful it is! I also added some Sofiero papers as the collections go well together :)

I selected flowers in matching colour for the box lid:

The inside of the box is mostly the same as the girl’s box:

And so there’s the stamped boy image with the cross and flower cluster:

…the strip of paper for sliding in money:

…and a chipboard chalice decorated with flowers:

Maja Design papers are perfect for elegant or formal occasions, their subtle, classic designs and delicate colour palettes perfectly match the chosen theme. I really like how this boy box turned out!

I used the following supplies:

Other: stamps: Whiff of Joy, Lemonade; chipboard: Scrapiniec, Anemone; dies: Magnolia, Spellbinders; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; Distress inks, glitter: Ranger;  wax string, bling, washi tape: my stash.

 

See you later!

Goodmorning & happy Friday Maja Fans,

Today I am futuring Camilla her beautiful girls on a 12 by 12 layout using the two Maja Design collections “I Wish” & “Summertime” I really love to combine those two. I took the brown out of the first collection and the blues from the second to compliment their pretty dresses. This layout has some playful circles {which would totally fit with the sweet girls on the picture} on them and some lovely flowers by Petaloo and My Little Birdy, I also added some new Dusty Attic chipboard designs.

I had a lot of fun using a bunch of mixed media products on my layout like sprays, stamps especially the stamps by Gabrielle Pollacco from 49 and Market. Don’t you just love this picture?? Camilla you have such lovely girls kind of jealous with a teenager boy in my household lol….

I also used a new stencil by Dusty Attic to compliment my layout and some blue spray by Lindy’s and prills…all the stitch parts are with a sewing machine but the stitches on the picture are by hand.

Hi!! I am Kavitha from India.

Kavitha

I have been into some form of arts & crafts all the time, but when I found mixed media 3 years I was completely hooked up. Mixed media give me lots of creative freedom and allows me to experiment with different mediums and materials. I love playing with paper, colors and all pretty stuffs. My style is more of vintage/shabby chic with lots of layers and textures but I love to try anything in between. Apart from crafting I love music, sleep, shopping and long drives.

I am so thrilled and honored to be guest designing here today. MajaDesign is one of my favorite paper line, I absolutely love the soft colors and textures prints. You can see more of my work at: kalalayaa-artclub.blogspot.com

For my first layout i made a very soft, pretty and girly page with lots of layers and fussy cut elements. I have used papers from “Summer time” and “Summer crush”.

3472

Keeping the paper “He gives her flowers” as the base i used “Light scarlet” paper from summer time, torn and distressed the edges and glued both together.

3475

For layering i have used diecuts and papers from Summertime (In the garden, flowers everywhere and garden bouquet).

3474

For embellishing i have used prima flowers, laces and fussy cut flowers from “Smell the roses” paper.

3473

I have also used chipboard pieces from 2crafty which i colored with color bloom spray and applies ranger crackle paste on top to add some texture.

 

3483

My second layout is a mixed media page with lots of layers and textures. I have used “Summertime” (by the sea) glittering water” paper for my base and “Vintage romance together forever” paper for layering.

3484

To create my mixed media background, I did a lot of texture stamping, applied some modelling paste through stencils and colored with “Lindy stamp gang” sprays in different shades of blues.

3485

For layering and embellishing  i used die uts, stamped images, prima & petaloo flowers along with 2crafty chipboards.

Good morning, Maja Fans, welcome to our blog :)

Today I have a layout to share that I made using the beautiful, pastel collection Summertime:

kora

Summertime was released without Monochrome sheets, of course, therefore I had to sacrifice ūüėČ the beautiful tiny flowers of the Flowers Everywhere paper to use the delicate pink for the background. Then I layered pieces of various papers to mat the photo. I also used signature strips for that :)

kora1

kora2

I added flowers and embellishments cluster in the lower corner of the layout to balance the layers on the right. I used flowers in matching colours, a resin heart that I mounted on the flowery pattern from the small paper pad, some paper straws and chipboard decor. I also added some sequins for a bit of bling:

kora5

The layout is also pleasantly dimentional too :)

kora6

I really love the way the papers complement the photo with colours and patterns!

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers, stickers, acrylic gems: Prima; chipboard: Miszmasz Papierowy; sequins: Multicrafts Imports; paper straws: my stash

 

See you soon!
