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 our blog fans. Today I would like to show you gift set. It is a card with the notebook in a vintage style. I love to create this time of projects :) Take a look, please :Vintage gift set

I started to created this project by finding the matching papers. Next step was to collect all add-ons, chipboard and laces. With the composition was easy – it is always in my head. I took a while before I found my own style … I can create cards in a different styles as well but with the vintage it is really fast. I know what I like !

Vintage Gift SetUsually I’m adding chipboards without colouring. This time I decided to add two colours. It made sense and I really like the final effect. Will do it more often – definitely.

Chocolate Box For Grandma

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today :)

In Poland we celebrate Grandmother’s Day on January 21st and Grandfather’s Day a day later. Grandparents play a very important role in Polish families. If they live close to their grandchildren, they often look after the kids when their parents are at work and they can’t afford or don’t want to send the kids to a kindergarten. Thus grandparents take an active part in bringing up children, we even have a saying that your childhood ends when your grandparents die. So the bonds are really strong and even though another saying is that parents are to discipline their kids and grandparents are to spoil them 😉 I can’t imagine life being complete without having grandparents. And so in my today’s post I’d like to share a chocolate bar box for Grandma, which is a good idea for a small gift to celebrate the day :)

I chose papers from the Vintage Romance collection that are universal enough to be used for projects not necessarily about romantic love 😉 I had a ready-made cardstock base for the box,  but you can easily make them yourselves, there are many tutorials in the Internet. I layered some papers in the backround and used a beautiful lady image in the centre:

I added the flower cluster in matching colours and a stamped sentiment which says: “Grandma, you’re wonderful” :)

To add some glam, I placed glitter cardstock strips on the sides of the box:

There is a pocket inside into which you put a chocolate bar, and I added another pocket for a wishes tag, as it would be too uncomfortable to write on the other side of a dimensionally decorated front. I cut out the tag from one of the papers, and also added some stamping to enhance the vintage look:

Now I need to look for some perfect papers for a Grandpa’s chocolate box :)

 

Here’s what I used to make my box:

Other: stamps: Lemonade, Tim Holtz; dies: Joy!Crafts; flowers, ribbon: Wild Orchid Crafts.

 

See you later!Maja-sign

Dishcloths as Christmas Gift

Hello Everyone, I hope you have a great weekend :-)

Today it is me, Silje Kristin, turn to inspire you with a project created with gorgeous paper from Maja Design. 

 In these days I am in full swing to create and arrange my Christmas  presents, which I will give to friends and family. One of the things I’m making is that I knit dishcloths in different patterns that I find on my own. The first three dishcloths I knitted was in gorgeous autumn colors, so I decided to create a cover that I can have around these cloths :-)

For this Christmas gift I have taken various paper from Maja Design collection Walking in the Forest. For me this was a natural choice, since the I knitted in autumn tones. I’ve used 3 different sheets: The Colours of Fall, Autumn in the Air and When Leaves are Falling.

What I’ve done is I’ve folded the cloths in the same size, then I cut up strips in the current pattern sheets and put them together on the back with double sided tape.

On the left side I have attached a brown button with wax thread, I have attached the thread with a bow. Atop of the bow I have attached something I do not quite know the name of.

Other details I have used is walnut, straws and brown and white flowers.

Under the flowers and the other details I have autumn leaves, which are punched out with a dies from one set of five autumn leaves. 

To break the traditional fall colors I have chosen to use one Embossing powders from Stampendous called Aged Marine.

If you have dishcloths as a Christmas present to someone, you can easily spice them up this way. In due so you do not have to pack the gift in, it’s going to fit perfectly under the Christmas tree with your own creativity <3

Should any of you wonder, my cloths are knitting with needles in sizes 4, between 55-60 stitches. The cloths are knitted with cotton yarn, until they are one square. 

Good luck 😉
