Hello dear Maja friends! Evgenia Petzer with you today and I am sharing with you a baby girl box.

I have the little treasure box that I have created for the girl, I have put the mini album inside of it (will show you in the next post), but you can also keep some little items of your little one in there (the first dummy, the little memorabilia from the birth hospital, the first bodysuit, tiny socks- all these will fit in it, if you wish).

Lets have a closer look?

lots of closer ups. After covering the box with Maja Design papers, I have used some chipboard, die cuts, lots of flowers, pearl, some lace and lovely ribbon. In the middle of the buttons I glued the enamel dots and these embellishments remind me of the  sweet candies.box_det1 box_det2 box_det3

The gorgeous Vintage Baby collection was used:

Have a lovely weekend, ladies! Hope you will find some scrapping time for yourself.

Hello our blog fans. Today I would like to show you something a little bit different. It is a calendar/notebook for  a little gentleman to write down his first words, add his first drawings. It will be a place to capture the moments, memories and a keep it until he’s teenager.Calendar for a boy

 

I bought a simple base and decorated the cover. You will not see here the flowers cause my idea was to keep it as simple as  possible. This project will be use for the next year and I hope it will survive. When it’s full I will create next one.  I just felt in love with the idea.

Calendar for a boy I used the paper from the Vintage Baby Collection. The colours and design is just perfect for a boy :)

Hello dear friends!  Evgenia Petzer with you today. Last time I have showed you the baby mini album and this time time I will show you a box, in which it comes:)

Its just a perfect size and can be used for the baby album itself or for the little things of your cutie.

lots of die cuts, lace and other little embellishments here and there. The balloons that I cut from the maja paper I place on the white yardstick and they become quite firm.

Hello Maja Fans, my name is Julie and I am from Scotland, today I am delighted to be sharing with you a mixed media project and two cards.

Julie-Lavalette

I have been crafting for around ten years now and am at my happiest creating in my craft room watching the birds come into our garden. My love for flowers, bygone eras and antiquities I love to express through my creating.

I love bringing a piece of paper to life and creating a story within my card so it becomes a keepsake and has a true meaning for the recipient and I love adding special little touches of details.

My style is definitely vintage/shabby chic, I love using diecuts and making my own flowers, adding lace, pearls, chipboard and mixed media accents into my designs.

So why not grab a cuppa and let me share my projects with you.

Julie1

As a child I remember my parents had a Photo Cube in the house where family photos took pride of place and with all the beautiful images Maja Design have to offer I was inspired to making one in a shabby chic style. My cube measures approximately 3.75 inches square and was created by gluing beer mats together to form the cube, adding some coffee stirrer sticks at the joins internally to help strengthen my cube. Next I added tissue tape around all my seams and a little blue Distress paint.

Julie2
My papers were all cut to size and tattered at the edges, I then rubbed some Versamark Ink around the edges and heat embossed my Embossing Powders. I added a pretty lace to the back of my paper and positioned them all in place with foam strips on each side. This helps to give my lace more dimension than lying flush next to the cube.

Julie3
I tattered my images at the edges and added a little stamping to distress them before matting and layering in place on my cube.

Julie4
I decorated with lots of small flowers with a Pearl centre and some dried ones.

Julie5
I fussy cut out lots of butterflies using both the 12 x 12 paper and 6 x 6, gosh I adore these butterflies for a perfect finishing touch.

Julie6
I added a diecut banner onto the top of my cube with my chipboard sentiment which had been heat embossed with the same colours as the edges of my paper.

Julie7
My larger flowers were shaded with Distress Inks and Pearl Stamens added into their centres with some smaller butterflies added onto their petals.

Julie8

I finished off my cube by adding small brass feet from my stash that I added highlights of Gilding Wax.

Julie9

Finishing of with a few more images of my cube.

This card uses the exquisite papers from the Sofiero Collection. I love the pretty feminine tones and the elegance of the images that compliment any craft project so well. This card measures approximately 5″ x 10″ and I intend to put it into a frame to keep as my ‘Precious Memory’ as a Guest Designer here at Maja Design.

Julie2,2
I started with tattering the base pink layer of my card with my scissors, this would help frame the soft tones on my design. I gathered lots of little scraps of paper from my Sofiero Collection and cut into approx 1″ squares, tattered at the edges and placed onto my card with foam strips. I now added on my torn layer of paper with tattered edges, some stitching and lace for extra detail.

Julie2,3

My dressing table mirror was diecut in white cardstock and I stippled on some Gesso for extra texture and once dry I added some Gilding Wax for highlights. You will also notice I replaced the mirror part of my diecut with a oval chipboard which had been painted and gilded in the same way. My beautiful image was glued onto an oval chipboard adding Pearls around the frame, finishing with a flower in her hair and a small Pearl added to her choker for extra detail.

Julie2,4

My Ivy chipboard has been painted nestling some small flowers around them and adding a few diecut leaves.

Julie2,5

My lilac flowers were created with Distress Inks and adding Pearl centres, my other flowers have all been creating using Maja Papers.

The inspiration for this card which measures 7.5 x 5.5 inches came from the love between a mother and daughter on my image and the beautiful Vintage Romance 12 x 12 paper called Engagement. I knew these would compliment each other so well and I could replicate the pretty flowers from the background paper onto my card.

Julie3,2
I started by adding tattered layers, accents of cheesecloth, touches of lace and Frantage for a shabby feel.

Julie3,3

My roses were die cut out in coordinating papers and inked with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink, I also added some small flowers with a mini Pearl into their centres.

Julie3,4

My floral arrangement was positioned onto my card with leaves which were inked at the edges and a few flourishes for added detail.

Julie3,5

I finished with a small double layered heart chain, some dried flowers and a little thread positioned through my bouquet.
