Goodmorning Maja friends,

Today I am here with you all to show you a card I made with the lovely “Vintage Baby”collection! I am getting more and more addicted to that collection because of the soft colors and that you have both blue & pink sheets in it. For today it’s a baby boy card with handmade flowers and a rattle shaker with metal pieces in it {also some beads and glass glitter}

I cut out different pieces of the blue & darker brown papers and placed them on top of each other to get more dimension, underneath the last layer I added some cheese cloth and a paper doily that I cut in half. The card is all made out of dies from a manufacturer I design for. Sorry for the different shades in the pictures but we have some bad weather and my camera is acting up!

What is great about using dies is that you can make your own flowers and you don’t have to worry about the colors not fitting well on your work. I always had a problem finding the perfect blue shade color for my work and now that problem is being solved by making my own flowers. Maja Design papers really allows you to make beautiful paper flowers from their collections because of the high quality & thickness of the papers.

Actually I used three other Maja Design collections here too, the blue flowers are made with “Nyhavn”collection! The flower with the beads in the center is made with the “Vintage Romance” collection and the feathers & leaves are from the “Vintage Summer Basics” collection and they all go so well together don’t you think so too??

Maja Design papers used: Vintage Summer Basics: 1905 bs, Nyhavn: Old Townhouses bs, Vintage Romance: Marriage proposal bs, Vintage Baby: It’s a boy bs, Adorable bs, Special Delivery bs & Die cuts bs

Decoration of stick it note pads *Tutorial*

Hello dear friends! Its Evgenia Petzer with you today and I will show you how to make the covers for the sticker pad notes. The covers are long-lasting, as once the notes are finished you can simply attach the new block on the same place.

One cover I have decorated using the paper and another one is with fabric covering.

Here is the result:

stick_notes_pad_petzer_together

The one for the boy uses the paper:stick_notes_pad_boy_petzer

some close ups:

and the girl’s one is made out of fabricstick_notes_pad_girl_petzer

some close ups:

stick_notes_pad_girl_petzer_det1 stick_notes_pad_girl_petzer_det2

So lets start: Thats basically  what we will need (if you decide to go just with the paper decorations)

MK_pad - 1

I am not providing the certain measurements here as your sticky blocks may vary… I cut the piece of the thick yardstick (or the watercolour paper as I am using here) the width is about 5 mm bigger than the block itself.

MK_pad - 4

after you score it, you cut the extra length off and here is what you will need to get.

MK_pad - 5

The block inside looks like this.

MK_pad - 6

for the fabric covering, we do it slightly different, I use the cardboard for it, to make it even firmer. The larger rectangular are slightly bigger then the block itself (add about 2 mm for each!!! side), where as the inner, thin part is thinner than the block’s part (to make the cover open nicely and smoothly)

MK_pad - 7

Than we need to attach these three parts to the fleece material (I actually buy the fleece throughs from the IKEA and use them for these type of things)

MK_pad - 8

Than you cut all the extra length away and get this:

MK_pad - 9

then you need to pick the fabric, I prefer cotton one and the designs that match my papers that I will use fro the decoration,

MK_pad - 10

Using the glue, you adhere the fabric inside (start from two opposite sides, than another 2 opposite sides, that will make the fabric lay straight and nice)

MK_pad - 11

MK_pad - 12

the corners of the fabric you can cut as shown, that will help you to get the corners look more nicer.

MK_pad - 13

 

after bending the corners inside, it will look like this:

MK_pad - 14

MK_pad - 15

This time I also will put some ribbons to get the more appealing look, the ribbons you attach with the glue and then can also add some sticky tape.

MK_pad - 16

Now we will need to cover the inner part also with the same fabric

MK_pad - 17

here is what we get, you can help yourself with the scoring pen for those two lines.

MK_pad - 18

than you put some glue on the stick note pad and adhere it inside of this cover.

MK_pad - 19

Now the nicest part begins- decoration! I pick the paper for the covering.

MK_pad - 20

using the wet glue you adhere it inside.

MK_pad - 21

*****

with the paper decoration for the boys’ sample its even easier… I picked two papers for the outside decor and you need to adhere it as shown.

MK_pad - 22

then you just need to decorate your projects as you wish, I always start by picking the main element.

MK_pad - 24Once again- here is the outcome result!

stick_notes_pad_petzer_together

Hope that you have enjoyed this little tutorial and these paper pads can become small nice gifts even for the teachers, if you go with more neutral decor theme.

 

I have used the paper pad of The Vintage Baby Collection

and the sheet with hot air baloons (New Arrival) for the fussy cutting:

 

 

Have a lovely day,

Hello dear friends! its Evgenia Petzer with you today and I am sharing another cover for a baby’s keepsake book that I love to make. I tried to make it soft and gentle, even though its for a boy, its still very appropriate as I think. I added some pops of “tiffany color” as the accents. This baby book can be also nicely complimented with this card That I made before.

baby_boy_nalichie

The air balloons I fussy cut from this sheet  *New Arrival*

then I put them on the white cardstock, to make them a bit firmer and to have that white edge around them that compliments other white colors of this book.

I have used the paper pad from The Vintage baby collection for it (I also currently have the giveaway of this entire collection on my blog, please come and enter if you wish to win it)

have a lovely weekend, we have lots of snow here, in Russia and want to play outside, have some outdoor snow fun.

Hello dear friends, its Evgenia Petzer with you today. Being a mom to three boys, I can’t get enough of a baby theme! One of my all time favourites! And the Vintage Baby collection- I am cutting and cutting it again.

I will start with the baby boy card. I decided to add some turquoise color as a little contrast…

Some die  its, the heart border is cut from the felt, so it gives that little extra soft touch to the project.

some close ups:

and another card for the baby girl:

Love those air balloons, I have fussy cut it from the paper from the same collection.

Lots of beads, pearls, some die cuts and gorgeous chipboard

Both of these cards use the Vintage Baby paper pad collection:

have a lovely scrappy weekend,
