Hello creative friends!

Fall is knocking on your door, finally, you feel like saying, after months of heat and drought.
At the begin of October, the summer heat gradually gives way to cooler autumn time,
which cobers the landscape in spectacular wonderful colours.
 
Time to walk in the woods and rustle through the foliage.

 I used a background paper ‘The great Nature’ from the collection  Enjoying Outdoors’.

 

I love this nature feeeling with delicate leaves motifs, Simply adorable!!

Hello , Lenet here .

Today it’s my turn to give you some inspiration .

I made this layout for you to show you how versatile the Majadesign collections are.

For this autumn-ish layout I used a combination of papers from the Denim and Friends and Denim and Girls collections.

Two of my favorite collections and the mix so well together.  The wood panels are cut out of  the Denim and friends -Wood .

I used a lot of filigree bronze embellishments on this ,  inspired by the  the crown the woman in the picture is wearing .

I added some Rose Triads pure sheen gemstones from Nuvo to give it all some bling and royalty.

The flowers I used are from Prima marketing and 49Market.

All together I’m very happy with the way this Layout turned out.

I hope you like my inspiration for this week hope to see you back next time.

Make sure you come back later to catch some inspiration from the other Maja girls.

 

Welcome Baby Shaker Card

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

I really love the look of shaker box projects. They offer some dimension and fun elements and are simply interesting to look (and play!). But I seldom make shaker box cards. And when I decided to make a welcome baby shaker card, I was quickly reminded why.

First of all, it’s easy to make shakers with square or rectangular shapes, but not so easy with other, even as basic as the circle. The capsule must be sealed tight so that the contents of the shaker do not fall out. I made many of shakers using adhesive foam squares, but with round shapes they might still leave tiny gaps, so I decided to die-cut round frames and stack them up to make the shaker box, thinking it would save me some time. Boy, was I wrong! To make a 0,5 cm high frame I had to die cut 8 pieces and then glue them one by one together. By the fourth layer the frame started to get crooked no matter how precise I tried to be! The frame is pretty thin, so that was the problem. But finally I managed to create a more or less even frame.

The next problem appeared with the window. I use thick laminating foil for my shakers and with smaller elements I never had any problems, but with this pretty large window the sequins I put in were jumping out or clinging to the foil due to the static electricity. I used soem anti-static spray to deal with it, some also use anti-static powders or pads that are designed for embossing. Finally I was able to assemble my card 🙂

I kept the design very simple so that the shaker remains the main focus. I only added some more die-cuts and a couple of pom-poms to decorate the frame and added a stamped and embossed sentiment.

The image inside the shaker is coloured with Kuretake Twin markers. I accented the details with glitters to get an ombre effect on the moon:

It wasn’t easy, it wasn’t quick, but I still like the result. Do you? 🙂

The list of supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Whimsy Stamps, Lemonade; dies: CreaLies, ScrapMan; pom-poms, glitter cardstock: my stash.

Do you make shaker box projects?

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and drop by tomorrow!

Summer in Poppies

Hello Maja Fans,

 

Fall is here. My favorite season, but I am still reviewing the memories of this summer. So here is my Layout that I made with the shot taken last days of August.

I like spending the time at our country side house . The flowers and plants there inspire me for a long dull winter days, so I decided to create stamped poppies and colored them with Copics

I mixed different collections there and focused mostly on the smooth colors of green , red and yellow.

I also made some die cutting using Maja papers to create the leaves for my stamped flowers.

It was easy to make choosing the olive and chest nut tones for the die cuts.

Hope my today\s post will warm you if the weather is rainy and foggy .
