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.
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.
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!
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:

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today!
The wedding season is slowing down a bit, but still the wedding bells can be heard each Saturday 😉 And so it is reasonable to have a stock of wedding cards and gifts at hand. Therefore for my today’s post I decided to make a wedding exploding box for those who wish to complete their wishes with some cash too 🙂
I combined two collections in the box, and they are both perfect not only because of beautiful colours and elegant patterns, but also because of their names! Mix Vintage Romance with Celebration and you have a perfect wedding project.
I matched the flowers I used for the box with the printed ones of the Engagement sheet.
Inside the box are the usual slots for money – the sentiments say: for the crib, for the shared nest and for the journey of your dreams – as well as the space for writing in wishes:
The filigree chipboard cake I used perfectly matches the flourishes of the papers! I decorated it with mini flowers and satin ribbon:
And how do you give cash presents to the newlyweds? Just an envelope or something more elaborate?
Here’s what I used to make the exploding box romantic and flowery:
Maja Design papers:
Mono Celebration-Lavender Rose
To the party bs
Other: flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard cake: Wycinanka.pl; dies: Crealies; ribbons, cheesecloth, pearls: my stash.
And that is all for today, thank you for visiting the blog and feel welcome to drop by any time to find more inspiration 🙂
