Hello to you sweet Maja Fans

I hope you have a good day, It’s very hot here in the Netherlands almost to hot to do any crafting.

Almost, but not entirely .

This time I made you this little note book . perfect for small notes and small shopping lists.

I never have large lists ,because I have a shopping center nearby . It’s just a bike ride of 10 min. away.

I bought it at the local dollarstore, but thought it was to boring so I made it a little prettier with some left over snippets from other projects.

and a close up.  Te rosette is made with the Tim Hotlz minipaper rosettes dies

The word Notes is made of small wooden letters from the dollarstore , paited white and glittered with a glitter and clear embossingpowder mix I made myself.

 

I hope you like my project for today.

Thank you for visiting ,make shure to check in  later to see what the other Maja girls have made for you.

Daddy Rocks – A Boxframe Tutorial

Good morning, dear Maja friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

Yesterday we celebrated Father’s Day in Poland. For this very special occasion I decided to make a special gift. But first let me share you a story behind it 😉

I make a lot of dimensional cards and therefore use a lot of card boxes too. And being a true scrapper and hoarder 😀 I tend to collect everything that could potentially be used, altered, reused and recycled, and that includes faulty box pieces. And so I gathered lids and bottoms that were assembled wrong, or stained, or wonky – and felt it was the right time to do something about them 😉

Yes, I decided to make a shadobbox-like frame using box elements 🙂 And I’m going to share a step-by-step tutorial with you.

The boxes were of various sizes and colours, so first I inked all the outside edges:

…and then wrapped the sides with washi tapes:

The next step was to decorate the inside of the frames – first I covered the inner sides with strips of papers and then added layers of papers inside. I used the Denim&Friends collection – my all-time favourite papers for masculine projects:

First I decorated the photo frames:

…and then additional decorative pieces:

Once I had all the pieces finished, I tried various element designs to make a frame. When I was happy with the layout, I attached them all together with strong double-sided adhesive tape:

Then I took the largest cardboard piece I had in the house 😉 and traced the shape of the frame. I cut out the shape slightly smaller so that the cardboard doesn’t peek outside the frame:

And my Father’s Day box frame was done 🙂

Let’s take a closer look:

I really like the way it turned out: the papers’ colour palette perfectly matches the photos, I used up pieces of boxes I couldn’t use for cards and I made an original gift that can decorate the wall above my husband’s desk 🙂

What do you think of it?

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; metal embellishments: Scrap Hobby; stickers: MAMBI.

And that’s all for today. I hope you liked my tutorial! See you soon!

Hello, our blog fans. I haven’t been here often lately. I’m really sorry. I really hope to post regularly from now on. I received the newest collection but didn’t have time to play with. Today I will show you a really easy card – perfect for any occasion.

I really like to compose a basic background. Combine few collections. Mix & Match is really funny!

I also used to buy digital graphics – like this time I bought the image with birds.

I’m looking forward to working with Denim&Friends. Hope you will like my today’s card. Hugs, Paulina

Strawberry Season

Welcome everyone!

The strawberries are ripe, a wonderful time in the garden,

which always reminds me of my childhood.

There was nothing better than picking them myself and putting them right in mouth.

I was inspired to create a mixed media project on a canvas. For that I used some papers from the ‘Summertime’ collection. There you can find a lot of  red suitable papers. The Maja Design papers are always of a very good quality, they are firm and stable and therefore also ideally suited for colour games. It is advisable to always start with a layer of clear gesso, so that the paper is sealed and does not curl.

 Flowers everywhere

Thanks for stopping by!
