Hi everyone! Here comes a lollipop card I made for a friend of mine. I have used some lovely papers from the Vintage Summer Basics collection. Here comes some photos I took a lovely Summer day.

To make the card, I first start by folding two accordions 30 x 7 cm. I fold at every cm. Then I glue the two papers together and get a long accordion. And after that I make a circle with it, by gluing it to a paper underneath.

All the gorgeous flowers was a gift from Petaloo some time ago. I got so many flowers, that I still have many left after making some projects for their cooperation with Maja Design. The butterflies are cut out from the pattern paper (Vintage Spring Basics). The image is coloured with Distress Ink.

Some secret envelopes. Made from a Magnolia die, using beautiful papers from Maja Design.

The text (from Stempelglede) is embossed on craft paper (translated: Have a lovely birthday).

Here is a list of the papers used:

 

With love,

 Thanks for stopping here today.
I’m Jennifer Snyder  and I would like to share a wedding card I made for my niece.
When I need gorgeous elegant paper, I reach for paper from Maja Design.
My niece is having an “end of summer’ wedding, so I decided to pick papers from
Vintage Summer Basics collection – with it’s wonderful array of blues, teals, pinks and creams.  These are the two papers I used from the collection:
1921
1923

 This card is a shaker card.  I filled the chipboard heart designs with light pink crystal gems.    The image below shows the dimension of the chipboard hearts from Creative Embellishments.

 

 

 Thanks for stopping by today.  Happy crafting.

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.

Products used:

Prima Marketing Flowers, Spellbinders Dies

Welcome Maja friends!

Today I want to share with you another possibilitie, what you can do with the beautiful papers from Maja Design.

It’s a one sheet minialbum, that means for the basic you only need one background paper in 12 x 12″.

I chose from the Vintage Summer basics collection ”1936”, both colours are very suitable to my theme

 blue, for the sea and brown, for a memoryin vintage style.

As addition some sheets from the Summertime collection.

I used some photo’s from our sheltie, a beautiful memory on last summer and really he is an aquaholic, even like me 🙂


on the right side you can see a ATC frame and some mini wooden shapes from Calico Craft Parts, a beautiful addition

where I used white crackle paint from DecoArt for an altered effect

other products:

cutting dies – Memory Box, Kaisercraft

Distress ink Vintage photo – Ranger

maritim clear stamps from different companies

Thanks for your visit!

Have a beautiful summertime my friends!

Hello Sweeties

Today, I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Vintage Summer Basic collection. I chose a photo of the Daum Venus aux Tiroirs by Salvador Dali.

Blue Venus by Pascale B.

I stamped here and there with a grey ink before priming the background with clear gesso. I added also a very thin layer of white gesso to tone down the blue.

Next, I added a design with a stencil and Paper texture paste. While the paste was still wet, I sprinkle two embossing powders: one pearl, the other silver that I heat set.

Then, I added some colors: black ink, white ink, and steel mica to add some contrast.

While the inks were drying, I die cut some leaves in a watercolor paper. I colored with a blue ink and embossed the big ones. I covered the other ones with a silver foil. I colored some flowers in blue.

I cut some papers in the Home for Holidays collection to add under the photo. Before gluing all the embellishments, I stamped some text here and there with a black ink.

To finish the layout, I added silver microbeads and glitters.
