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:

mdbgirl3

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:

Hi dear Maja fans! Today I want to show you how I made these two cupcakes. The lovely papers used are from the Vintage Romance collection.

Vintage-Romance-P

Ok, let’s start with showing how it is made!

1

Here is all you need for your cupcake: Dies from Magnolia, a Styrofoam ball, two Maja papers measuring 30,5 x 4, 5 cm, two circles cut out from hard cardboard (1 ¾ “), a paper measuring 13 x 13 cm, laces and ribbons, metal embellishments and of course your favourite Tilda.

2

Find the middle of the paper measuring 13 x 13 cm.

3

Put the circle in the middle and draw around it.

4

Then cut the paper like you see in the photo. Then score around the circle.

5

 

6

Fasten the circles on both sides of the paper.

7

Put the ball inside and fasten it with glue, also fasten the sides of the papers on the ball. Like you see here.

8

Cut off the longest papers. I cut them down to 4 cm.

9

Make a cut for the tag. Remember to make it as deep as you can.

10

Then you can easily place your tag inside.

11

Here are the two papers which I have folded on each cm. I will now glue it on.

12

Here is the tag.

13

I use a needle and thread and sew the thread up and down on the lace, so that it curles up nicely.

14

Then I fasten it to the cupcake. It looks like frosting :)

15

For the flowers, I cut them in half.

16

Then spray them with water to get them curled up.

17

I curl them up, and leave them to dry.

18

Then glue them on to the ball.

20

Cut more flowers in half and curl them a little with the tools.

19

Make a lovely doily for the cupcake to stand on.

21

Continue with more layers and end it with some more flowers.

Here is some pictures of the finished cupcakes. Doesn’t they look yummy!?

You can write a greeting on the tag.

The beautiful Maja papers are just wonderful to work with, and gives the cupcakes the perfect romantic, vintage look. The cupcakes were also made for Magnolia’s DooHickey vol 14. Thank you so much for visiting the blog today!

With love from,

Camilla

A very good morning to you, dear Visitors to the Maja Design blog :)

The summer is coming to an end, but we shouldn’t let our spirits go down! Today I have two birthday cards to share, and their common element is the blue palette and a motif connected with flying high above :)

The first one features an angel wing in the flower cluster:

mdblu

I layered papers from the Vintage Frost collection, placed the sentiment stamp with a button in the centre and surrounded it with flowers and leaves. I also added some pearl brads and liquid pearls.

mdblu1

mdblu2

mdblu3

The central motif of the second card is an air balloon surrounded by flowers:

mdblu4

I used scraps of the Vintage Romance papers to make a shabby patchwork background, placed the chipboard layered balloon upon it and decorated it with mini roses and crystal flourishes.

mdblu6

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other:

button: Lemoncraft; chipboard: Scrapiniec; flowers: Prima, my stash; flourishes: Prima; mold: Prosvet; die: my stash

 

So, what do you think about my cards? I really like the way they turned out :) See you soon!

Hello Maja Fans, last month of summer is officially here, one of my favorite month of the year.
This summer I made a lot of wedding projects and today I want to share an Anniversary Wedding Album I ‘ve made recently
Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance

I made quite an easy and simple mini album , it’s size is A4 and as usual  I made the fabric cover for it with stitching

Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance_a

When you want to keep your mini simple all you need to do is to grab beautiful papers, a few flowers and several elegant dies

Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance1

I followed all the instructions I ‘ve mentioned above and played only with a simple color palette – pale blue, gold, beige brown and some mauve shades.

Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance2

It was quite easy to do, as the paper patterns are really amazing from the Vintage Romance collection

Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance3

I wanted my mini to be classic and elegant.

Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance3a

So I didn’t want to overwhelm it with many of the embellishments or even paper layers

Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance4

Modest and shabby

Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance6

Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance6a

Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance5

Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance8

Some fussy cutting was made to add the embellishments instead of using the flowers

Products used:

Prima Marketing Flowers, Spellbinders Dies, May Arts Ribbon.

Hello Scrapbooking friends!
I am very excited and honored to have been invited here this month as Guest Designer. Thanks so much for your invitation!

Kerstin-Inga-Peters

My name is Kerstin- Inga Peters and I come from Germany. I have been creating for many years now, always in search for new techniques and yet unexplored territory in craftland.
I’m a modern girl with a big vintage heart and my big passion are photos, colours and textures. With Scrapbooking and Mixed Media Style I have found ‘my’ perfect favourite genres – as it combines words and pictures, thoughts and feelings, and the application of various innovative products, techniques and the idea of telling stories.
I love the sea forever and ever. That’s my place for relaxation, dreaming and inspiration.
As I saw the wonderful papers I thought, amazing the right colors for sea, beach and so much more.

My first layout shows our family sunshine ‘Filou’, it’s a sheltie and he has always so much fun on the sea. His favourite occupation is to get sticks or balls out of the water.

Summer Fun

Used materials

Maja Design papers: Summer Time -Having fun-; Life by the sea -Regatta-; Life by the sea -Marina-

Prima flowers, Scrap FX chipboards, Gauze, Texture paste white, Distress Stain Walnut ink, Embossing powder, 3D pearls, sea shells, metal embellishments, driftwood

IMG_2820A crumpled craft paper with burlap leftover, some self-collected shells and a piece from edge stripe.

IMG_2821

Some stains and splashes with paints diluted with water, together with some cut outs from the ‘Marina’ paper (flags and lighthouse).

IMG_2823

Can you see the waves on my photo? I love the idea to continue some photo elements on the background paper. Here I used a white texture paste and a fan brush for more sea waves.

I also used some hand torn stripes together with colored gauze and a lot of little blue flowers.

 

Good day – We don’t remember days, we remember moments

Sunshine, beach, the sea and more: while the little ones dig in the biggest sandpit, the grown-ups lounge in a beach chair enjoying the sun or take a refreshing dip in the sea.

Used materials:

Maja Design papers: Life by the sea -Sailing-, Life by the sea -Regatta-

Stencil ‘Coral’ Scrap FX, Clear stamps ‘Maritim’ Viva Decor, Dies – Lighthouse, Beach grass, Tattered flowers, white gesso, Chalkboard Glimmer Mist ‘Boogie board’ Tattered Angels,

burlap,metal embellishment, tags, chipboard word from Scrap FX

IMG_2518

 Hanse Sail

Maja Design papers: Sailing – Vintage Romance -Words of Love-, Life by the sea -Marina-

Embellishments – wooden seahorse, metalic charms, feathers, starfish, rope

3D pearls, Distress stain ‘Walnut ink’, chipboard wordlet Scrap FX, circle dies, stencil ‘Bubbles’

embossing powder ‘Burnt copper leaves’

I’m a big fan of old sailor ships. The ‘Hanse Sail’ shall take place once at year on the Baltic Sea. You can see there very impressive windjammers,

traditional ships and museum ships. IT’s really a highlight for me and my vintage soul.

IMG_2513

So I used here more vintage colors, various brown shades and a wine red.

For the wooden seahorse I used a transparent crackle paste in combination with distress ink and a little bit copper wax creme.

IMG_2514

Some motifs from the ‘Regatta’ were very suitable for my photo and I decided to use a round die to cut out these elements.
