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

In my last post I shared a baby girl layout using the Little Street Cafe collection. I also claimed it’s quite easy to use any Maja collection for any theme. And so I have challenged myself to create a boy page with this romantic, vintage and feminine collection. Here’s the result 🙂

Just as in my previous post, I followed the photo colour combo and opted for a monochromatic selection of background papers. I  chose orange hues (surprising as it was for me!) that perfectly match the brick wall in the photo. I repeated the motive with a stencil and white structure paste…

…and referred to my boys’ black t-shirts with black mold elements and stamping. A range of matching flowers as well as black stones and matte gold sequins complete the look.

For the title I used a chipboard piece that I embossed with glossy black ep:

I think it turned out really cool, casual and cheerful 🙂 But what do you think?

Here are my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: chipboard: Scrapiniec; stamps: Heidi Swapp, aliexpress; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts, Prima; stones, stencil, resin flowers: Prima; mold: Prosvet; sequins: my stash.

 

Thank you for visiting the blog today! Don’t forget to return soon for more inspiration 🙂

 

A true gentlemen

Welcome creative friends!

I was inspired to create a mixed media layout in vintage grunge style.

It’s a scrapbook page for a boy with one of my favourite collections ‘Denim & Friends’.

I used the paper sheet ‘Worn Indigo’ as background, a fantastic colour shade it looks like original Blue Jeans

and some leftovers from the paper sheets ‘Jeans and Shirt’ and ‘Sunbleached’.

I love to create in vintage style and a grunge look is perfect for a masculine layout.

I want a weathered look and so I used a white crackle paint applied with a spatula for the edge.

Together with some stamps a great effect.

 the borders from the paper sheets are always a wonderful addition, I use them very often
an awesome MDF shape in steampunk style from Calico Craft Parts
together with a lightbulb from Prima Marketing
Thanks for your visit!

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

As each Maja Design collection, Little Street Cafe has a specific theme, but at the same time is versatile enough to be used for almost any kind of project. And today I’m bringing you a baby girl page using these beautiful papers 🙂

The collection features a vibrant palette of several colours, but it is really easy to opt for a monochromatic project. I selected mauve and pink papers and added a touch of white and gold to create light, delicate background for a sweet photo of my goddaughter.

First I layered background papers and applied a wreath motive upon them with a stencil and white texture paste. Then I filled each wreath with flowers:

I die-cut the title word from gold metallic cardstock and applied it upon a wired heart:

I also added some sequins for a bit of girly glam 🙂

I really like the way it turned out; light, subtle and delicate like the baby in the photo 🙂 What do you think?

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts, Prima; die: Kesi’Art; stencil: Agateria; diecuts, wired heart: Prima; mold: Prosvet; sequins: my stash.

 

That is all for today, thank you so much for visiting and don’t forget to drop by soon for more inspiration!

Hello creative friends!

I’m back with a new inspiration for you,

it’s a vintage layout with our latest very romantic paper collection

 ‘ Little street cafe’.

 

 I used the paper sheet ‘Meeting friends’ together with a monochrome paper ‘Vanilla’ as background and some cut outs from ‘Die cut’.

Matching the vintage theme I added some chipboards from Dusty Attic, some remnants of lace, old book pages and

some Prima Marketing metal embellishments and flowers to the mixed media layout.

some close up’s

stains and splatters with Distress ink for a coffee mood in used look

the time is right

a wonderful aroma emanates from the coffee cup makes with a flourish chipboard

 

Happiness is a cup of coffee or chocolate???

preferably with a delicious homemade cake, or?!

 Thanks for your visit!
I hope I could inspire you to use this beautiful papers
 for some happy hours on your crafting table.
Wish you a happy time!

Welcome and a warm welcome Maja Design friends. Tina Ollett with you here today to share a project created with the gorgeous new release “Little street Cafe'”. This is titled “Coffee and Friends”.

The cute little sentiment that I used to title my project I found on the tear off strips of the patterned papers. This was actually my starting point When I saw this I knew exactly what photo I wanted to use. Our trip to New Zealand a couple of years ago found my girls posing for photos in lots of different settings. This of course was just a backdrop but a perfect setting for a photo. When I looked closely at the Die Cut sheet from this collection I saw that some of the cards had a similar background work. What a great coincidence don’t you think.

You can see oh so beautiful Die Cut sheet below.

 I cut the die cut sheet using the frames from each card. I also cut a cute cupcake and also the mini mini teapot with cup and sat it on the table in the middle of the girls. You can see it below. Soooo cute! I also cut the larger tea set and popped it up on 3D foam.

I have used the patterned sheet “Something Sweet” as my background piece. I used a Dusty Attic stencil with some Crackle paste to add texture and some added detail to the background. I wanted to keep the page fairly clean so I decided to use a lot of  layering using the papers. I have also used papers from the 6 x 6 pack so there was very little trimming needed for the page. These pieces were distressed sanded and layered alternatively.

                    

Something Sweet

  

                                                                                         Meeting Friends

I also add in some pretty 49andMarket flowers and some flower pearls to help embellish my layout amongst the fussy cut pieces from the Die Cut sheet that you can see below.

That is all that I really did. Quite a simple yet pretty layout full of layers and gorgeous colour.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know what you think. Until next time happy crafting.
