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

You know I love the Denim & Friends collection as it’s just perfect for all masculine projects! But if you think it’s JUST a masculine collection, I hope to prove you wrong 😉

Yes, a totally girly stuff! Soft and romantic frame with three of my nieces in the photo.

First I assembled a chipboard shadowbox frame and then covered it with Maja papers, inside and outside, inking and distressing all the pieces. For the front coevr I chose to colour with mists as it is too intricate to cover it with papers.

Then I placed a chipboard clockface in the bacgkround, added the photo and surrounded it with embellishments – hand-cut tags, a tiny banner with an opalescent acrylic heart:

…mulberry flowers, resin heart and bird, a butterfly flair button:

…a delicate twig winding around the frame side:

The title is a chipboard piece too:

I also added a flower cluster on the outer side, addding guipure lace:

I’ll add some journaling on the back, which is for now covered with papers:

 

 

 

And here’s my list of supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: shadowbox frame, sentiment: Scrapiniec; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts, Prima; resin embellishments: Prima, button: Lemoncraft; mists: Tattered Angels, golden metallic paint: Martha Stewart.

 

So what do you think of such version of a masculine collection? 🙂 I really like the way it turned out and how the patterns compliment the photo.

And that’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later!

Hello dears and welcome to the blog!

Today, I would like to share with you my inspiration for April. This time I have something a little bit different from my comfort zone. I made two cards with papers from the ”Enjoying Outdoors” collection along with lots of flowers and laces.

For the background I choose the ”Singing in the rain” paper and I used it on both cards. I made two layers on the first one with the ”The Great Nature” and the ”Woodlands” papers. I added color with the Edelweiss Moss Green Lindy’s Gang spray. The butterfly chipboard was painted with the Finnabair acrylic paint sparks ”Fairy Wings”.

I have also made two layers on the second one with the ”Gardening” and the ”Time for reflection” papers. I used the Open Arms Amethyst Lindy’s Gang spray to add some color. The butterfly chipboard was painted with the Finnabair acrylic paint sparks ”Iris Potion”. The chipboards are Dusty Attic and the flowers are Prima Marketing.

When everything was glued down, I added some glass beads and sprinkled a little glitter on them. The final touch was made with some splatters with white ink.

 

Papers used:

 

 

That’s all for today, my friends!

Thank you for stopping by!

Welcome, friends! It’s Nancy with you on the Maja Design Blog. I’m thrilled you’re visiting with us on this beautiful day. Spring is well and truly arrived offering up it’s gifts of bright and beautiful flowers. I look out of my craft room window and marvel at the blooms in my garden, which are my inspiration for today’s card. I’m drawn once again to Maja Design’s Coffee in the Arbour paper collection. The colors are so fresh and cheery, just like a spring day!

Design papers are distressed, layered, and stitched to form a base. Handmade florals crafted from design papers are the focal point of the card. Frothy lace and loopy twine bows add a feminine touch.

Below is a close up of the stamped sentiment. I enjoying creating cards to keep on hand to suit multiple occasions, and this one will be perfect for those times I need a last minute card.

The curlicues are made by twisting strips of design paper around the tiny end of a paint brush. A script stamp adds a bit of interest to the corners.

Below is a peek of the interior of the card. Coordinating design papers and script stamping give a cohesive appearance with the front of the card.

Maja Design Papers Used:

Other Supplies Used: Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Dies, Heartfelt Creations Flower Shaping Kit, Script Stamp, Sentiment Stamp, Archival Ink in Timber Brown, Lace, Twine, Flower Stamens, Tim Holtz Distress Tool, Sewing Machine, Thread, Adhesives.  

Thank you so much for joining us on the blog today. Don’t forget to check out the new Mood Board Challenge. We have a new challenge each month and all are welcome to participate.
