Good morning, Maja Fans, welcome to the blog today :)

This month Maja Design joins creative forces with Petaloo, so for my today’s projects I included some of their beautiful flowers. So my first card is baby girl baptism card:

mdbgirl

This is a twin card with the boy’s version I created following the beautiful palette of our September Moodboard challenge. It shares the same design and even stamp, of course coloured in girly pink, and features little pink Petaloo flowers:

mdbgirl1

mdbgirl2

Just like in the boy’s card, I coloured the image with Distress inks and embossed the sentiment with golden ep:

The other card is a wedding one:

mdpet

For this card I selected brown patterns of the Vintage Autumn Basics papers and beige Petaloo flowers:

Ti finish my card off, I added some liquid pearls swirls and accented details with glitter:

And here’s what I used for my cards:

Maja Design papers:

Other: Flowers: Petaloo (Forgetmenots and Mixed Blossom in antique mauve and antique beige); chipboard: Scrapiniec; stamps: Whiff of Joy, Lemonade; dies: Crealies, Magnolia; lace: my stash.

And that is all for today, join us for the Moodboard challenge and keep stopping by our blog for inspiration every day :)

See you later!

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Denim and Friends collection. I chose a photo I created.

The Elfant by Pascale B.

I primed the background with clear gesso. When dry I added a design with a stencil and black gesso. Then I sprayed two shades of inks through a second stencil. Then I added some splatters with two Magicals.

While the background was drying, I sprayed the chipboard with the same inks.I dried them before applying some Platinum Crackle Paste.

I added a last design to the background with a third stencil and Platinum Crackle Paste. I colored some flowers as well as some leavesI’ve die-cut in a watercolor paper.

When happy with the result, I glued all the embellishments: chipboards, flowers, and leaves with a 3D gel.

To finish the layout I added some mica flakes and micro beads.

Goodmorning lovelies,

Today I am up on this lovely blog using my precious Maja Design papers. In my last post I added some questions and I will give you those answers in my August 11th post, the same as I give you my tutorial that day. Sorry for that but I had to deal with some serious personal issues so I have not been scrapbooking as much as I wanted to. Today we will be leaving for our well deserved vacation trip for the next seven day we will be enjoying each others company at a camping ground in the south of our little country we are very excited as you can imagine…, for this post I made a 8×8 layout using only Maja Design papers, dies and a flair.

That sweet picture I got from pinterest oh boy how I love that site…here I used several Maja Design collection such as Vintage Autumn Basics, Vintage Baby, I Wish and Vintage Summer Basics. The centers of my big flowers are made with foamballs that I glued on and dipped in mini prills such a lovely effect that has.

On the background I added some spray’s, stamp and paste. But I also stamped the word sweet on the picture I really do love Gabi her word stamps. What I do when making a layout with just paper and dies….firstly I will cut all the dies that I want to use in different colors then I will make the flowers and their centers and put those together.

Then I it is really easy to make it into one whole piece that you like. At the moment I am totally hooked on the amazing flairs by Cuts2luv that I will use it on almost every single project I make. I wetted my papers to disstress is a little more at the edges I also inked the edges first before I did that.

A happy hello to all of our crafty friends! It’s Nancy, and I’m so happy to be here with you at the Maja Design Blog! I’m playing with my Denim and Friends papers again. I can’t seem to get enough of them.

I adore the distressed barnwood pattern in the new paper collection. It takes me back to childhood summers at my aunt and uncle’s farm. My sister and I stayed with them a week or two out of each summer, which was a real treat for us. It was so cozy. Life revolved around the workings of the farm, and everyone had a part to play. My sister and I were charged with the daily picking of the strawberries and helping set the tables for the communal lunch. When we were left to our own devices we especially loved exploring in the barn, which always seemed to have a couple of bird nests and an assortment of cats and kittens to cuddle and love on. It was a simple and joyful time. This card is inspired by those memories and the happiness they bring to my heart.

The center flower is handmade from the Vintage Autumn Basics paper collection. Can you tell I recently baked up a batch of wildflowers? I’ve been using them quite a bit lately. The butterflies are stamped on design paper then fussy cut. A little nest and a few rose petals are hiding in there as well.

The sentiment is stamped onto design paper. Hand punched lace is is tucked randomly around the edges.

You’ll find additional stamping and a splattering of acrylic paint on the design paper.

Each paper is distressed, layered, and stitched together.
