Welcome and a very big hello !
Tina O with you here today. It has been a couple of months since I was last here and I am so very happy to be back on board creating again for Maja Designs. I have been away recuperating from shoulder surgery but I am very happy and so glad to be back at my table again creating.
Today I have something beachy for you. Here in Australia Summer is a very special time for our family. Lots of trips to the beach and just getting out and enjoying the beautiful sunshine and our gorgeous beaches. The photo I have used today is of my youngest who just loooooooves the beach. And every chance she gets she will be found digging away in the sand, or mud digging holes or just building sandcastles. I adore this photo of her from back in 2012 at a holiday gettaway in Forster, New South Wales. Again she is digging away and very much caught up in the moment !
No. XXI bs
Since the togs she was wearing are a navy blue I decided to keep with these colours and add some neutral tones and have kept it very earthy. I have only used a little media being distress inks and gesso along with Rust Paste.
My starting point was tearing up my sheet of Vintage Autumn Basics and layering it using both sides along with some Dusty Attic corrugated board. These pieces were laid over the top of Vintage Autumn Basics and then primed with some clear gesso. I did some drying brushing with white gesso to give that whitewashed beachy look and also did some splatterings of white.
I have used some new Dusty Attic release beach chipboards, lots of 49andMarket Floral Mixology and Garden Seeds flowers along with some seashells to help with my embellishing of the page.
The chipboards were dressed in gesso and I randomly applied rust paste let it dry for a few moments and rubbed the rust paste until the colour bleed into the gesso.
Well that is all from me today, I do hope I have inspired you in some way big or small to create something this week for yourself! Enjoy the time you create and happy scrapping.
Its Keren here and I created a layout for Maja Design using the new Denim & Friends collection. I used the “Worn Indigo” paper as the background for the layout as as well as the “No XXI” from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection which really go well together.
I used the blue toned papers from these collections as I wanted to mimic the colors in my picture.
I framed the photo with a chipboard frame which I colored in blue to match the layout and then I added matching blue flowers as well.
I incorporated some gold into the layout because I love the combination of blue and gold.
Here are the papers I used from both collection:
Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog
Have a wonderful day!!
Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer with you today. I am showing you another gift envelope that I made using some of my previously cut sheets of my Maja stash.
Love the lace details, the kraft die cuts, the roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts, Wycinnaka chipboard.
some close ups:I have used the mixture of the collections of the Basics line (my left overs), but I want to draw your attention to these 2 sheets, that I love and keep on using more than my others:
this one for fussy cutting beautiful small roses
and this one for little extras for my projects
Have a lovely weekend,
Goodmorning Maja Fans,
Autumn is upon us again and here where I live the weather is showing us all the beauty of it! Falling leaves and changing colors but also my least favorite part, the heavy wind and the rainy days. Today is a day like that and I’d love to stay in bed under the warm covers….but I have to go to work in a while! This time I’d like to share a Autumn card with you using all dies and my beautiful Maja Papers. For this card I used different collections but mostly “Walking in the Forest”! All the dies I used where cut out a couple of weeks back but I never used them. I am hooked on leaf dies because you can use them for every occasion and this time it’s a Autumn card. It was really hard to take a picture because it is very windy and I take all my pictures outside….and my card almost flew away…..glad it didn’t though.
This card was made out of leftovers it’s so much fun to sometimes dig into your stash and see what you can make with it. I had leftover papers from both of my paper design teams and every once in a while my neighbor gets all my cut out papers to make Christmas cards and all sorts of other cards and projects. Because I am fortuned enough to be on these amazing paper companies that I’d like to share some of that fortune 😉
Maja Design papers used: Walking in the Forest: colours of fall, fresh air, die cut sheet, die cut letters and jeans. Vintage Baby: Die cuts bs for the flower. Monochromes shades of denim: Mono Denim Light blue & Vintage Autumn Basics: no.VII & no. VII bs.
Thank you so much for your visit today I sure hope I have inspired you to play with your amazing products you have in you stash or even order new products I have used here.
Have a wonderful week!
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:
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:
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:
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:
