Hello,I am here to share with you today, a LO I did, combining 5 of Maja’s Collections.


Out of the Life by the Sea Collection I used Bottle Message,Sailing,the East Coast & islands and skerries-BSLife-by-the-Sea-P


From the Gammaldags Jul Collection I used: Julbak,Julbak-BS, Goder afton-BS,Karamellstrut-BS,….I also used the die cut sheet from the Vintage Winter Collection & Virkad strampa-BS from the Frojdefull Jul Collection & the Days of December from the Vintage Frost Basics Collection. The chipboard used is from Dusty Attic. Here are some closeups of detail….


On the heart boarder,banners & stars I used MS texture effects,& sprinkled on some rock candy glitter, while the effects was still wet.Once that dried, I glued on some white micro beads….


On the Alpha & Bird of Paradise I used red pepper ink. On the Bird of Paradise I also added a coat of rock candy stickles & sprinkled on some rock candy glitter, while the stickles was still wet…..


I cut out pieces of Maja paper to cover the hearts,glued that to the chipboard, then applied some rock candy stickles…..


I did some stencil work using texture effects & prima 6×6 static stencil….



My next project is a altered cigar box using the Vintage Summer Basics Collection….



I used: 1932,1932-BS,1905 &1891 Here are a couple closeups of detail…..


I covered the box with the Maja papers,then applied a coat of rock candy crackle. I used pitch black ink on the black pieces,then applied some black gold tattered angels. Once that dried I rubbed on some Viva gold. On the lighter pieces I used Viva modeling paste,champagne. My flower centers were old cloth brads that I painted metallic gold,then glued on jump rings,seed beads,ect…


Thank you so much for taking the time to look….RachelleRachelle-sign (2)
