Hello creative friends!

Today I want to explain how you can create a vintage romance layout with an altered 3D frame as your central focal point.

I create a very simple layout because the paper alone gives all the magic effect.

I think is one of my fav in this collection ‘Enjoying Outdoors’ – ‘Singing in the rain’.

I love the beautiful edge design and the girl on the right side and I like people who smile when it’s raining.

Times are not always easy, but I always try to make the most of it.

Take a break from the hectic everyday life and relax.

I started by creating an altered frame for my photo.

Want to see how I made this? Here I have some photos from the making.

Snapguide How to an Altered 3D Frame

Now to the background, first I primed with clear gesso, then I used Distress ink ‘Seedless preserves’ on a stencil, it’s the same colour how you can find on this paper sheet.

Next, I added a Glimmer Mist Spray ‘Kiwi’ from Tattered Angels

to the background arround the area of the photo.

then I use two die cuts to add more dimension

(Wordlet ‘Do what you love’ and ‘Girl under umbrella’)

with papers from ‘Vintage Romance’.

Afterwards I choose some embellishments to decorate this romance layout,

for instance from Prima Marketing (garden gates, butterfly), flowers, lace, fabric leftovers,

water drops, little resin flowers.

I builded a small cluster on the right side under the photo.

suitable to the titel ‘singing in the rain’ I added some pearl drops and another umbrella from a die cut, as well as a clockface

from the ‘No. XVI’ (Vintage Autumn Basics) above with a glass cabochon.

The ‘Welcome’ sign is a photo cutout with a underlaid folder music paper sheet.

3D look

This project was so much fun to create and I love the 3D effect that you can build up.

Questions??? you’re welcome :-)!

I hope my project can give you some inspiration for your work with Maja Design papers.

What is your favourite paper sheet??

Have a beautiful day!

Welcome creative friends!

Kerstin is back with a new springtime layout.

After a very long cold period, it finally gets warmer and the daffodils in my garden start to bloom. I love this time, finally, more sun shines again and gives hope for new life. There is a lot to do in the garden right now, but you should also let all five go straight and just enjoy this short time.

This time I used a monochrome paper as background, I love this neutral papers because

you will have so many opportunities to create a selfmade mixed media background.

I used a brick stencil with white gesso, old music paper sheets, stamps, leftovers from craft paper,

Glimmer Mist Spray (Sunflower) from Tattered Angels, Distress Ink Stain from Ranger,

paper frames from La Blanche and wonderful flowers from 49 and Market.

some details

I hope you like this little spring layout inspiration

with monochrome paper from the ‘Shades of Celebration’ collection,

I will return on 18th of April with a

Tutorial 🙂

Happy crafting!

Sweet celebration

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a lovely Easter. Today I will show you a card I made as a Guest DT for Ett Trykk in the February issue. I have used papers from the gorgeous collection Vintage Romance.

The image image is from Magnolia. And I have used Memento ink – Rich Cocoa to stamp it with. I think the image get softer when I use brown ink instead of black. And then gets a romantic touch that fits theses Maja papers well. The postmark stamp is from Stempelglede.

For my colouring I have used Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. Around the image I have added some liquid pearls from Rangers. I have also added some White Gesso here and there.

The lovely flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. And the big white one is called English rose, I think it is my favourite flower!

Around the image I have used dies from Spellbinders. Other than that the dies are from Magnolia. Like the heart, smal book, banner, and the shape of the card.

Under the flowers I have placed some Sissal grass. And I have also some cheese cloth behind the image.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Here is the list of papers used:

With love,

Birthday Girl

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

I have recently had the pleasure of making a sweet birthday card for a sweet girl.

 

I used mostly Denim & Friends papers as they matched the colours from the photo most perfectly. I added just a touch of the Vintage Summer pink in the background:

I have die-cut the embellishments from the papers, such as the cute heart banners and the number flag:

I stamped the cute beart with a heart, coloured it and paper-pieced the heart using a scrap of the Vintage Romance heart-patterned paper. I then added a small letter “O” for the girl’s name:

I also added plaid ribbon and some mini flowers and cute white pom-poms as the finishing touch.

And I think the card symbolises the 9-year-old girls quite accurately: still cute, but not too much 😉 What do you think?

Here are my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Marianne Design, Craft Passion; stamp: ScrapBerry’s; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon: Rayher, pom-poms: my stash.

 

Before I bid you goodbye, I’d like to wish you a joyous Easter filled with the warmth of love and kindness 🙂

See you soon!
