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

Have you seen the refreshed edition of the Sofiero collection that has been released lately? When I got the news abotu it I was very excited, firstly because when I began designing for Maja Design the collection was already retired, and secondly, because of the new addition, the Monochrome papers! This is such a good idea, no more painful decisions about which beautiful papers hide in the background! :) And as this is a special release, I decided to make a special layout about a certain lady in red. Be careful, huge amount of cuteness ahead!

I layered contrasting designs in the background and separated them with pom pom trim and lace:

I cut out a heart shape and made an initial plaque, then I added a resin angel wing:

I built the flowers cluster between the photos and placed the title in the decorative frame:

I also added some die-cut leaves to decorate the photo:

I decorate the other photo with a sentiment I cut out from one of the signature strips:

Adding bling and accenting details with glitter was a finishing touch. I really like the way the layout turned out, the beautiful pastel papers making the photos stand out! And look at this yummy dimension :)

And here’s what I used for the layout:

The Sofiero papers:

Other: dies: Spellbinders, Prima, Magnolia; flowers: Prima, Blue Fern Studios; chipboard: Tattered Angels; bling, trim, lace: my stash.

 

Thank you for visiting the blog today, and see you later!

I’m going to be an Aunt <3

Hello Everyone :-)

Today it is my turn to present one project for Maja Design. 

The project I’m going to show you today is one project I created 25 August, but because of bad images, the time was never right, it never got published. But today it’s time, and you know what is funny is that these images are the first pictures I took of the project.

You know I’m going to be a Aunt, for the first time in February next year <3 But to tell you how this project started, we need to go some months back. My sister called me at the start of August to tell me she was pregnant, and the due date is February the 18. She also told me that she wanted to tell it in a very special way, in fact she whant to tell it with a specal project. How this project was going to be, it was all up to me, but it had to be a calendar on it, since we not at that time knew if it was a boy or a girl, the project had to be in neutral colors.

I liked the idea right away, I liked it alot, and that this is not a project you see each day. What is special about this box is that this is the first project I make to my aunt children <3

For this box I’ve used paper from two different Maja Design collections. Vintage Romance and Vintage Spring Basics. I have chosen out those sheets in a gray and bright tone.

Vintage-Romance-P

Vintage-Spring-Basics-P

After I had covered the box with pattern sheets, I attached silver feet below the box, glue on buttons and pearl ribbon on the sides and the edges.

On the lid of the box I made one plateau, this I did because it would be easier to decorate and put things I create in 3D and other details.

On two of the sides I have decorated with one locomotive (my own tutorial), an elephant that I found in a folding book for children, butterflies, flowers, buttons, pearls, cheese cloth and blocks.

On the other two sides, I have many of the same details, but here I have one 3D plane (put together with my own turorial) and a Giraffe folded from the same children book that the elephant.

Atop of the plateau i have a easel that I have made myself, with a calendar on. Around the due date which is the 18 I have a heart and on the top of the calendar I have written February. February is punched out with one set of dises from kaBoks.

On the side of the calendar are several blocks, these blocks I have used one dies of one train and placed on blocks that I have put together. The other details are pearl and butterflies.

One very special project from me today, that means a lot to me that I got to make it <3 <3 <3

And before I quit my blog post, I would like once again to say congratulations to my sister and the great man she is with <3  You’re going to be a great dad and mom to a little boy coming in February <3

Hello dear friends, its Evgenia Petzer with you today. Being a mom to three boys, I can’t get enough of a baby theme! One of my all time favourites! And the Vintage Baby collection- I am cutting and cutting it again.

I will start with the baby boy card. I decided to add some turquoise color as a little contrast…

Some die  its, the heart border is cut from the felt, so it gives that little extra soft touch to the project.

Lots of beads, pearls, some die cuts and gorgeous chipboard

Hello Maja Friends, it’s Elena here with you today.

You know that I enjoy creating albums and other stuff for the babies. However I do like when it doesn’t look too baby,that is why I am searching for dig=fferent ways how to add other embellishments , flowers ,lace and so on, so that it can be used for the baby at the same time.

It’s really fun and you don’t need speacial baby papers.

This time I combined some of my favorite papers form different collections. and I guess that still look simple and match each other perfectly.

I made many flaps, envelops and tags – I do like when the album is like a Lego, you know)))

There are many pages and details in it, I don’t want to bother you with all of them, I will show only a few.

Even if you make something for the girls you don’t need to keep it absolutely pink. I like adding teal and blue too.

However few flowers is a good adition

Hello dear friends! Its Evgenia Petzer with you today and I will show you the mini album that I made for a girl. Its based on the tags (dies) that I cut from the very strong cardboard and then decorated.

Here is the cover ( I have used lots of lace, pearls, chipboard in my album).

Some time ago I have shown the baby box here on the blog and to fits this album perfectly.maja_mini_girl_in_a_box maja_mini_girl_total_look

Lets have a look on it inside- page by page?

maja_mini_girl_1r

In some frames where the photos will be placed, for now I put the photo of my little one- just to show how it will look altogether (I have only boys, so this baby album will be for some other little princess).

some fussy cutting of the butterflies and air balloons

some close ups:

maja_mini_girl_det1 maja_mini_girl_det4 maja_mini_girl_det6

For the tags themselves I used the die cut by Tim Holtz (sizzix) and lots of leftovers from my favourite Maja Papers (different collections), all the decoration is mainly from the Vintage Baby paper pad papers and I also used these 2 sheets for the fussy cutting.

 and 

Have a lovely sunny day,
