Hello, dear friends! Evgenia Petzer with you today. I have made another masculine card this time. I really love mixing my tender shabby chic works with these masculine, a bit grungy projects. I prefer to use Denim and Friends collection for these type of works.

I love to add wood elements to my projects, I have covered the chipboard element with the frontage embossing powder.

some black accents in different textures and shapes

I have used the Denim and Friends collection:

Have a great day,

Hello and welcome Maja Design friends.

Tina Ollett with you today to share my newest layout “Perfect Beauty”.

Last year was a huge year for my eldest daughter having graduated from high school. Of course there was the formal and semi formal and graduation dinners and lots of differing ceremonies to celebrate many milestones of her schooling life. And as always, I was there at the ready with my camera to capture all of these moments.

Sometimes for me, it is easier behind the camera, because I can hide my emotions of joy of pride and of just being her mum. I am, as I am of all my children so very proud. So you can imagine how I felt when I saw this photo after taking so many many photos in only a short space of time. Because of course we were running late !

So with you I will share now all the details of this project.

 

For my project I used a combination of different collections. My background piece “Sunbleached” was from Denim and Friends.

 

And my second piece from the Summertime collection.  This is titled “Wind in my hair”. Is was so easy to combine both pieces for this project. Looking closely at the Sunbleach page you will see snippets of the vintage orange with compliments it very easily. And because the quality of these papers are amazing I was able to do some creasing of “Wind in my hair” by spritzing the paper with water and manipulating it. I then dried the paper off. Did a little sanding, tearing and distressing. I then adhered the two pieces together.

 

With my remaining papers ( I actually used two sheets of each) I did more tearing and made layers to sit under my photo. I also matted my photo. I have embellished my page with lots of Dusty Attic chipboards that were dressed in acrylic paints and distress inks.

Above you can see the layers of papers intertwined with chipboards and flowers and lace and also a little Cheesecloth.

My flowers used were from 49andMarket. They were all coloured with acrylic paints to compliment my layout.

Here you can see the creases made on my background paper. I have also done some stamping and painting of my background.

Lots of layers made with the papers which you can see above. I love to tear these papers and use both a and b sides. I have tucked in lots of pieces of lace cut into smaller pieces to give some height to my layout.

Well that is all from me tonight. I do hope you have enjoyed my post here today. Thank you for popping by.

 

Until next time take care and happy scrapping.

Spring Tea Room

Hello, crafty friends! Welcome to the Maja Design Blog. It’s Nancy back today with a new card to share. We’ve had temperatures between 70-80 degrees in my corner of the world. Our Camellia’s are in full bloom and spring is in the air, at least for the moment. It really has me feeling like springtime has arrived, and hence the inspiration for this card, the spring tea room!

The spring tea room is a unique traditions of the southern United States. Each spring local churches host a daily tea for a week or two. They come complete with lovely music, the most delectable homemade luncheon choices, scrumptious desserts, and of course, tea! Each lady is escorted to their table by a formally clad southern gentleman. It’s all very genteel, and after enjoying your dining experience you can shop from a vast variety of handmade items and goodies in the tea room shop. If you’re ever visiting this region you should definitely plan to attend a church tea room.

Maja Design’s beautiful ‘Coffee in the Arbour’ paper collection is the absolute perfect paper collection to bring this card to life.

There are several stitched base layers and much dimension throughout, though it is difficult to capture it on camera.

The blooms are handmade from the paper collection and sit atop a chipboard frame featuring flowers and flourishes. A dusting of gesso tones down some of the brighter color. It’s a little trick you can use when you want to achieve a more muted look.

The tea embellishments are fussy cut from the paper collection.

Below is a peek at the interior of the card.

Maja Design Papers Used: 

Other Products Used: Chipboard Frame, Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Dies, Flower Shaping Tools, Flower Stamens, Gesso Twine, Sewing Machine, Thread.

Thank you so much for joining us on the blog today! It’s such an honor to be here with you. I hope your week is filled with joy and cozy crafty hours.

Hugs,

Nancy Dynes

Hello sweet Maja Fans,

Lenet here and today I bring you this Valentine card,

I used papers of the Christmas Season collection for this card  just to show you that the Christmas collections are not just for Christmas projects and Christmas season .

As you see  you can use them very well for other projects like a Valentine card.

 

As center piece I used a chipboard heart that I decorated with red polkadot  back side of  the Holly Jolly paper , distressed the edges and put a heart shaped lock on it.

I made a dangle with the key to the heart and attached it to the heart .

The flowers are from Prima Marketing and wild orchid crafts.

For the Card itself I used the back sides of : Deck the halls , Merry Night and Gift Shopping.

I’m so happy the Mood board challenges are back again! I always think the are a big inspiration , and it gave me the inspiration to make this card.

Did you take a look at this months  Moodboard? There is still time to get isnpired and join the challenge, first prize is a collection of your choice!

I think that is a very good reason to enter don’t you? So come on and give it a try! can’t wait to see what you create.!
