Hi dear Maja fans! Today I want to show you how I made these two cupcakes. The lovely papers used are from the Vintage Romance collection.

Vintage-Romance-P

Ok, let’s start with showing how it is made!

1

Here is all you need for your cupcake: Dies from Magnolia, a Styrofoam ball, two Maja papers measuring 30,5 x 4, 5 cm, two circles cut out from hard cardboard (1 ¾ “), a paper measuring 13 x 13 cm, laces and ribbons, metal embellishments and of course your favourite Tilda.

2

Find the middle of the paper measuring 13 x 13 cm.

3

Put the circle in the middle and draw around it.

4

Then cut the paper like you see in the photo. Then score around the circle.

5

 

6

Fasten the circles on both sides of the paper.

7

Put the ball inside and fasten it with glue, also fasten the sides of the papers on the ball. Like you see here.

8

Cut off the longest papers. I cut them down to 4 cm.

9

Make a cut for the tag. Remember to make it as deep as you can.

10

Then you can easily place your tag inside.

11

Here are the two papers which I have folded on each cm. I will now glue it on.

12

Here is the tag.

13

I use a needle and thread and sew the thread up and down on the lace, so that it curles up nicely.

14

Then I fasten it to the cupcake. It looks like frosting :)

15

For the flowers, I cut them in half.

16

Then spray them with water to get them curled up.

17

I curl them up, and leave them to dry.

18

Then glue them on to the ball.

20

Cut more flowers in half and curl them a little with the tools.

19

Make a lovely doily for the cupcake to stand on.

21

Continue with more layers and end it with some more flowers.

Here is some pictures of the finished cupcakes. Doesn’t they look yummy!?

You can write a greeting on the tag.

The beautiful Maja papers are just wonderful to work with, and gives the cupcakes the perfect romantic, vintage look. The cupcakes were also made for Magnolia’s DooHickey vol 14. Thank you so much for visiting the blog today!

Hi dear Maja fans! I am back with a giftbag this time, filled with lovely chocolate. And I have of course used my new favourite collection, the Denim & Friends Collection.

Denim-P

I have cut out different elements using the lovely papers. This time in more brownish colours and over to yellow. I have used DooHickeys from Magnolia for the tassels, hearts, tags and flowers.

IMG_8494

To make the flowers look like this, I cut them out, then sprayed them with water, curled them, and let them to dry.

IMG_8495

I have coloured the image from Magnolia with Distress Ink, reinkers and Markers. I use syntetic brushes size 0 and 000. And the paper to stamp on is called The Langton.

Under you can see the bag from the side.

Hi there! How are you? I am so sorry for my late post. But here it is! It is so busy having a four year old, that I am a bit relieved that kindergarden started up again today :) But back to my card, I have ofcourse used the wonderful new papers from the Denim & Friends!

Denim-P

I will list the papers used in the end of the post.

IMG_8328

The image is from Magnolia, and I have coloured sweet Tilda with Distress Ink.

IMG_8329

I have cut out the balloons from Maja Papers, inked them and added some Stickles Star Dust on the edges.

IMG_8351

Here you see how I have built them up with three layers of balloons. Using 3D foam.

IMG_8352

It’s your birthday – text from Magnolia, on gorgeous hearts cut out with Maja papers. The flowers are from WOC, Magnolia and Kort & Godt.

IMG_8334

Here are the text on the tags. Vintage-looking as the papers are :)

IMG_8345

I have used die from Go Kreate to make the shape of the card. They are inked with Distress Ink – Walnut stain and sewed on the edges.

Hope you liked my card today! Here are the papers used:

Hi dear Maja fans! It is Camilla again, showing you a card I have made with the lovely papers from the Denim & Friends collection. Wow, I just love the new papers. I made this card to my aunt and uncle who both celebrate their 60 years birthday this Summer.

Denim-P

The card was inspired by a card made by the talented Cathrine Sandvik in the latest issue of Ett Trykk. Since there was no tutorial, I made it on my own. It is kind of making a frame card, only to put the frame inside the folder.

IMG_8211

I have coloured the image from Stempelglede with Distress Ink, re-inkers. The pink is Victorian Velet, and the blue is Weathered Wood. I have also added some liquid pearls on to it.

IMG_8215

Under you have a view of how it looks inside with the frame.

IMG_8221

Blue and beige is some of my favourite colours to work with, and I think this collection is one of my favourite from Maja Design!

IMG_8227

I hope you are having a wonderful Summer, with warm summer nights :)

Lots of love and hugs from

Camilla

Sweet Denim

Hi there! Here comes a card I have made with the wonderful new papers from the Denim & Friends Collection.

Even if they are a bit masculine, you can easily use them for cuter cards:)

Denim-P

The image is from Magnolia’s Denim Collection and is coloured with Distress Ink.

I have added several layers with papers which you can see here.
