Hello and welcome Maja Design friends.

Tina Ollett with you today to share my next project with you.

This has been titled “Happiness blooms from within……”

I have kept my project for today very simple and very shabby. I did lots of layering of the beautiful papers from may all time favourite collection Vintage Romance. The papers from this collection are listed below for you.

Walk with me – Vintage Romance

Walk with me bs – Vintage Romance

When I saw you bs – Vintage Romance

I have also added in a sheet of the gorgeous Lavendar Rose to compliment my layout from the Monochromes shades of Celebration. This was used to mat my photo and some of the other layers to help them pop a little. It is a very stunning colour.

Mono Celebration-Lavender Rose

I decided to go with a black and white photo to help keep the layout light. I also decided to use some cute paper clay moulds.

And as always with my layouts I have added layers of Dusty Attic chipboards to my layers of Maja Design papers. I have used Distress Inks to colour my chipboards along with splashes of gesso to lighten sections of the boards.

I have added in lots of beautiful 49andMarket flowers. These too have been added in layers amongst the papers and chipboards.

Here you can see all the layers of the torn Maja Design papers.

Here you can see I have added in lines of gorgeous lace. This has been cut to sit back to back and over the top of each other and also over the layers of my torn papers. I added in sections of white muslin that has been distressed.

Well that is all from me today. I do hope you have enjoyed my post today. Until next time take care and happy crafting.

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:

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 🙂

 

 

Hello Baby Girl

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today!

Recently I got some cutest photos of my cousin’s precious baby girl and of course I couldn’t resist making layouts with some of them 😉 And for my today’s post I’m sharing one of those pages:

I chose the beautiful Marriage Proposal paper from the Vintage Romance collection for my background. I added some colour along the border with Distress ink and then stamped peony silhouettes:

I matted the photo with pieces from the Sofiero and Denim&Friends collections that matched the photo colour scheme. Then I added my floewr cluster mimicking the one in the picture:

I extended it into a cascade blending into the stamped pattern and glitter-covered chipboard flourishes:

I composed the title using epoxy and paper stickers. Then I added some sequins and gemstones as the finishing touch:

I mounted the layers of papers on pieces of cardboard (great way to use up delivery boxes 😉 ) so they don’t look flat against the flowers. And I really love the dimension it gives!

What do you think?

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Altenew; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; stickers: American Crafts, Piątek Trzynastego; chipboard: Miszmasz Papierowy; Distress inks, glitter: Ranger; sequins, bling: my stash.

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and keep dropping by for more inspiration every day!

Hi everyone! Hope you are fine. Here I am back with a wedding card I have made. I have used the lovely papers from the Vintage Romance collection.

Under you can see that I have cut out several love letters from the paper named “Walk with me”.

The image from Magnolia is coloured with Distress Ink. And it looks so nice together with the romantic and lovely papers.

 

 

 

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog!

With love,
