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.

Hello Maja fans!

Mary with you today to share my inspiration for February. I made a soft blue tone layout with lots of flowers, laces, chipboards and metal embellishments.

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across that beautiful and mysterious photo of a girl with a horse. And, the new gorgeous ”Celebration” collection was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I choose the ”You’re Invited” paper for my background and I added some layers with the ”Party” paper and the ”Anniversary” using both sides of it.

First, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with white crackle paste and a stencil. I made some stamping here and there and continued by coloring my page with the ”Blue Hawaiian Blue” Lindy’s Gang spray.

I painted the flourish chipboards and the title with the Sparks ”Magical Pond” acrylic paint. When dried, I gently rubbed on them some ”Vintage Gold” Wax. The ”Flower Stamens” chipboards were also painted with the Sparks ”Raven Black” and they were rubbed first with the ”Blue Velvet” Wax and then with the ”Vintage Gold”. The chipboards I used, are from Dusty Attic. 

When everything was glued down, I added some crystal and turquoise glass beads and sprinkled some glitter. I final touch was made with some splatters with white ink.

That’s all for today, my friends!

Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Sunday Maja Fans.

Tina with you today to share my latest project using the gorgeous new release collection of “Celebration”. I again used more photos from my wedding day. The photos of my two eldest children and my hubby is a truly special moment. and I love the naturalness of it all. As always when photographing children they don’t always do what you want and in these photos you can see that that  is exactly what happened, but I think that is what makes them extra special photos.

“IV”

The first gorgeous piece from Celebration that I used is called “Anniversary”, a totally stunning piece I really couldn’t got past using this, but I decided to also use the the bs of this piece as it is equally gorgeous. I tore my piece turned the bottom over and then went to work embellishing my page.

I wanted to keep my layout stylish and a little elegant. And since our photos were taken out in the garden I decided to add some garden elements to my layout. For example the chipboard birdbath and old shabby window shutters and of course lots and lots of beautiful florals.

Above you can see the Dusty Attic chipboards that I used and the textures and colours which I have dressed my embellishments in. I wanted to keep the colours quite neutral and soft.

I decided to use two photos from the shoot both where my son was obviously not concentrating on the camera. Just too cute I reckon !! I also cut a clock from the Maja Designs Vintage Summer collection and added it to my layout atop of the smaller lacey heart photo frame and I added the Roman Numerals “IV” for the 4 of us. Thought it was quite fitting for my layout.

And to keep with the elegance of the page I have coloured some of my chipboards and flowers and leaves with a gold in the colour of Miner Miner from Shimmerz Paints. It is a stunning way to highlight pieces on a layout. I have also added in some cutouts of the flowers from a second piece of Anniversary and tucked them in and around the flowers clusters. You can never have too many flowers I think.

That is all from me today. I hope your weekend has been kind to you and you have had some time for crafting.

Until next time take care, hugs………..

Hello Maja Fans, last month of summer is officially here, one of my favorite month of the year.
This summer I made a lot of wedding projects and today I want to share an Anniversary Wedding Album I ‘ve made recently
Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance

I made quite an easy and simple mini album , it’s size is A4 and as usual  I made the fabric cover for it with stitching

Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance_a

When you want to keep your mini simple all you need to do is to grab beautiful papers, a few flowers and several elegant dies

Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance1

I followed all the instructions I ‘ve mentioned above and played only with a simple color palette – pale blue, gold, beige brown and some mauve shades.

Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance2

It was quite easy to do, as the paper patterns are really amazing from the Vintage Romance collection

I wanted my mini to be classic and elegant.

So I didn’t want to overwhelm it with many of the embellishments or even paper layers

Modest and shabby

Some fussy cutting was made to add the embellishments instead of using the flowers

Hello Maja Friends.

I’ve got a trio of shabby cards I made from the Sofiero collection. I know I made so many projects recently but I still can not stop playing with it.

This time I decided to try to use the pictures of beautiful ladies that go on a separate Cards sheet.

Moreover I haven’t made something shabby for a while, so I took some of my fav lace and doily lace so I added them to my cards alongside with stitching on them.

I like using any fabric on my cards, and white lace and crochet work really great for shabby style.

I also added the flowers. torn layers
