Hello, our blog fans. For the previous inspiration, I have created two childish cards. Today I would like to show you another project – this time I created a card box in the same style. It will be a gift for a Baptism.
I did not create the paper box from the scratches – I’m not so patient. I bought a ready base from a polish producer called GoatBox. The base is really easy to fold and then decorate. Paper came from the Maja’s “Vintage Baby” Collection. I love all type of delicate pattern and pastel colors, recently.
This time I added some structure paste. I didn’t want to make many layers. I have chosen only some chipboards from Scrapiniec and paper flowers. Kept it as simple as possible (I did my best!)
I hope you enjoyed today’s post. If you have any question – don’t hesitate to ask! I wish you a wonderful day. Hugs, Paulina
Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today!
The wedding season is slowing down a bit, but still the wedding bells can be heard each Saturday 😉 And so it is reasonable to have a stock of wedding cards and gifts at hand. Therefore for my today’s post I decided to make a wedding exploding box for those who wish to complete their wishes with some cash too 🙂
I combined two collections in the box, and they are both perfect not only because of beautiful colours and elegant patterns, but also because of their names! Mix Vintage Romance with Celebration and you have a perfect wedding project.
I matched the flowers I used for the box with the printed ones of the Engagement sheet.
Inside the box are the usual slots for money – the sentiments say: for the crib, for the shared nest and for the journey of your dreams – as well as the space for writing in wishes:
The filigree chipboard cake I used perfectly matches the flourishes of the papers! I decorated it with mini flowers and satin ribbon:
And how do you give cash presents to the newlyweds? Just an envelope or something more elaborate?
Here’s what I used to make the exploding box romantic and flowery:
Maja Design papers:
Mono Celebration-Lavender Rose
To the party bs
Other: flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard cake: Wycinanka.pl; dies: Crealies; ribbons, cheesecloth, pearls: my stash.
And that is all for today, thank you for visiting the blog and feel welcome to drop by any time to find more inspiration 🙂
Hello Maja fans Lenet here and to day I bring you this altered frame I bought at the local dollar store.
It was a simple grey 3D that I wanted to give a weathered look like it has been laying at the beach for a while because I wanted to use these pics. of my friend and her kids that were taken at the beach.
So I distressed the frame by sanding it and than dry brushed it with Finnabair art basics Plaster paste and made some little termite holes in it.
I made the little pegs that hold the pictures grey with chalkgrey Ayeeda mist from 13@rts and dry brushed them also with the plaster paste
For the back ground I used Vintage Summer Basics1936 as the sky and cut the fence from Vintage Summer Basics 1905
The create the sand I used Finnabair artstones mixed with artbasic 3D Matte Gel Transparent and pushed some litte shells in it.
A little seastar and some fishingnets in the corners to finished it off.
Thank you for watching and hope to see you back
Good morning, Maja friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
The summer holidays started in most countries with school education 😉 And so many of us realise their travellin dreams and go to see the world. Even though nowadays smartphones are mostly used to collect and share memories, there are still many traditional freaks like scrapbookers and journal artists who prefer to keep accounts of their travels in paper books. And so here’s one for them:
I made the notebook using my favourite masculine collection, Denim&Friends. The hemisphere pattern papers from the 6×6 pad were just perfect for the covers! I decorated the front with strips of plaid paper and signature strips and added some stamping and a die-cut wind rose. I placed the notebook title in a metal frame attached with nail-like brads.
The notebook closes with a piece of rubber elastic. A fabric brad acts as a kind of stopper for it.
I decorated the inner covers and the title page too, using a lot of Tim Holtz stamps. I also added a kraft envelope for some loose pages, photos, tickets etc. one might want to collect during summer travels.
And some more stamping on the back cover 🙂
And here’s what I used for the notebook:
Maja Design papers:
Jeans & Shirt
Other: stamps: Tim Holtz; die: Cheery Lynn Designs; chipboard covers: Scrapiniec; notebook insert: Studio75; kraft envelope: Anita’s; brads: Rayher, Craftmania; metal elements: my stash.
So what do you think? Would you take that notebook with you fro your holidays?
See you soon!
Hello sweet Maja fans.
A few of the things I love is recycling pretty packaging.
Every time I get a gift or buy something I take a close look at the package and see if I can make something nice out of it.
Good thing I have enough space to store all the interesting items , the only thing I need now is time , lots of time , but think that is a common problem we crafters have.
Anyway I got some scented sticks ( love those too) and the came in this tube .
We had a anniversary and double birthday party coming from friends , the asked money so they could buy something nice that was very expensive.
I think just giving money is boring , so wanted to make a nice package to put it into and I had this tube lying around so cut half of it and made this out of it.
on the top lid I glued a lot of flowers .
Under the lid I glued a satin ribbon that you can pull to take the lid of and it’s also a handle to hold the gift.
and a little birthday card to go with it and voila, gift tube is done.
For this project I used the Celebration Collection , what better papers are there to use for this gift tube than the celebration Collection right?
Flowers are from Wild orchidcrafts , pearls and ribbon from my private stash.
Thank you for visiting.
I hope you like my project for this week and hope I gave you some inspiration for recycling those tubes.
I have more tubes lying around so will be back with another one soon.
