I wish a happy hello to all our friends of the Maja Design Blog! I hope you’re well and enjoying a lovely spring season. It’s Nancy on the blog today and I’m super excited to have something new to share with you.

I love anything and everything ‘time’ themed. It can be art, a time travel series or movie, or a vintage clock or pocket watch. I adore it all. With this in mind I felt inspired by Maja Design’s gorgeous Vintage Autumn Basics collection to create this new card.

There is quite a bit of fussy cutting involved with this card, from the clock to the vintage lady, the pink flowers, and the sentiment. All of this fussy cutting has made me realize I  I need better lighting in my craft room or stronger glasses. :-))

The roses are handmade. I have a tutorial for these roses on my blog.

Here are a few detail photos. Each embellishment is popped up with foam tape to create multiple layers. I tucked in a twine bow and some cheesecloth to finish things off.

I have the best time playing with my Maja Design papers! I hope you do, too!!

Maja Design Papers Used:

Other Products Used: Natural Twine, Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Dies, Flower Shaping Kit, Flourish Die, Magnolia Rose Leaf Die, Tim Holtz Distress Tool, Cheesecloth, Sewing Machine, Thread. 

Thank you so much for visiting us on the blog today! It’s an honor and a pleasure to be here with you. I send wishes that you may be surrounded by all in life that is beautiful.

Hugs, 

Dream

Hello Maja fans!

It’s Mary with you today and I have a new layout to share made for my November inspiration.

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across with that amazing photo. I picked a paper from the gorgeous ”Vintage Autumn Basics” collection that was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I choose to use the back side of the ”No XXI” paper. I started by applying a coat of clear gesso on the background and then I created texture with an icing paste and a Stencil.

Made some stamping here and there and used a Lindy’s Gang spray to add color.

Next step was to paint all the Dusty Attic chipboards with the Finnabair acrylic paints.

When everything was glued down I added some art stones and glass glitter and beads. The final touch was made with some splatters with white gesso.

 

Paper used:

 

I hope you enjoyed my project!

Thank you for stopping by!

Hello and welcome Maja fans. Tina Ollett with you today to share a project created using the gorgeous collection of Vintage Autumn Basics. I hope you enjoy this layout which I have titled

“Memories are timeless treasures of the heart”.

I decided to go with the colours of the clothes my little girl was wearing in the photo. She had camoflague shorts on so the greens in this were quite dark. To highlight this green I decided to lighten the papers by distressing and sanding all of the layers that I used for this project. I have listed the papers that I have used to do this project below.

The addition of Dusty Attic chipboards were added in to help frame the photo. And adding this to the photo prompted me to wrap some garden vines and frames around the chipboards.

I have added in some moss and art stones. Here you can see the lovely distressed layers.

 I have also made some resin moulds of the bird and Window and Shutters. They are so cute. The bird above and the windows and shutters below.

Some more close-ups for you.

 

Thanks for popping by today. I will see you back here next month. Until then take care and happy scrapping.

 

Trick or Treat!

Hi everyone! It is me again, with a new Maja Card! This time I have been inspired by Halloween. When I was a child we never celebrated Halloween, I am not sure if I had heart about it. But in the last years it has been really popular here in Norway too. We also had some “scary” children on out door Wednesday evening asking for Trick or Treat.

I thought the darkest papers from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection would fit nice for a card like this.

The image is from Magnolia, and is coloured with Distress Ink, re-fillers and Markers. The white flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have added some white Gesso and some frantage.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

With love,

A tag made with love!

Hi everyone! I hope you all are fine. I am enjoying working with the Vintage Autumn Basics collection. The papers are just so beautiful! I will show you which ones I used at the end of the post.

But first some photos of my tag. It is not always necessary to give a whole card, sometimes a tag can be just as nice to give someone. I have used the tag die from Sizzix for the main tag.

All the other dies I have used are from Magnolia. The image is from Magnolia’s Class Trip Collection 2018. And I have coloured her in matching colours to the lovely papers.

Here comes some close ups of the details on the tag. I have used Distress ink for my colouring.

I have put some White Gesso on to the papers here and there.

Between the layers on the camera I have put som 3D foam. And some Maja papers together with the Raven Bazzill. I think it worked out nicely.

Here is the list of papers used:
