Hello Sweeties

Today, I’m up on Maja Design blog for the last time. After 4 years, it’s time for me to say goodbye and it’s never easy, but don’t worry, you will continue to see me on the web. I want to thank Marie again for having me for such a long time, her kindness, and for her generosity.
And for my last project, I made a layout featuring the Vintage Basics collections: I used the Summer and Spring collections. I work with another of my family treasure: on the photo, taken by my maternal grandfather, you can see his mother with his brother.

First I stamped randomly with a dark brown ink and different stamps. When done, I primed the background with clear gesso.

I mixed together a brown magical with white crackle paste to add a design with a stencil. To give the effect of a peeling design I used my palette knife to remove some part of the design. I let dry naturally to allow the crackle to appear.

In the meantime, I soaked some flower chipboards in order to give them more dimension and texture. I gently pulled apart the edges to add more texture. After drying, I primed them with white gesso and I used blue and brown inks to add some colors.

I just added some gold shimmer to the white flowers and some brown ink to the leaves. I colored also some leaves chipboards with the brown ink as well as a mix of different sizes of Art Stones.

When the crackle paste was dry, I added some colors with the same inks to the background. Next, I cut a few papers to add under the photo before gluing all the embellishments.

To finish the layout I add some fine glitters on top of the flowers chipboards and the Art Stones.

Hello Maja Friends,

Summer is always full of wedding ceremonies, so each year I am busy with creating wedding cards for my friends

Normally I make more than just a couple of cards. So this time I made 2 different cards

I decided to mix the collections again, I love how they work together, no matter which collection you use.

I used mostly Vintage Spring Basics collection, focused on the blue and beige tones and added lace embellishments

Also I made some fussy cutting, and even cut out the roses form the Summertime collection

So you can see the collections are totally a perfect match.

Hello sweet Maja fans

Here I am again and this time I bring you a tag/label inspired by the moodboard of this month.

I am so in love with the colors , freshness and theme of this one I had to create another project using it.

I really really love my Maja papers and so safe every little snippet, call me crazy but I just do . I hate trowing them a way.

All that saving gives me a lot of leftovers, so I set myself a challenge to every time I create something I must create something else with the leftovers.

So I made this tag with the snippets I had left from the layout I made for the moodboard challenge.

I also used the little chipboard bricks from the wall thing ( sorry have no idea how to call it) I used on my layout to make a new wall.

I found this inspiring  quote /saying on a sheet of word stickers from  7 dots studio . I can relate to it so now my label got a nice spot in my craftroom where I can see it often.

Hope you like my  label/tag and maybe I even gave you some more inspiration to join us at the moodboard challenge. Hope to see you there.

The chippies I used are from scrappiniec, the flower from prima , lace and ribbon from my stash, doily is a die from studiolight .

I used left overs from Vintage spring basics 4th of april 10th of march and Sofiero Princess Margareta’s garden.

Thank you very much for visiting,  please come back tomorrow to see another creation of one of the Maja Girls.

Hello Maja Friends,

it’s the first day of Summer, I have been waited for it for so long.  and Now it’s here and I feel so happy

And today I’ve got to share a very special scrapbook page I made for a newborn babygirl

The mother of the baby is my friend and she asked me to create something, where she could keep the photos ( a few) and some notes for her little princess, so the journalling cards

I made several flaps to keep the photos on one page

Her mother likes the ballet theme, so I added the beaded ballerina into the frame. I added some torn paper layers and made die cutting and punching on the paper too.

I mixed 2 paper collections _ Vintage Summer Basics and Vintage Spring Basics, and I like the final result.
