Hi there lovely people! Here I am again with a new card for you. I long for the Spring, and have therefor used papers from the Vintage Spring Basics. Hope you like it!

Vintage-Spring-Basics-P

I will list you the specific papers at the end of the post.

IMG_6387

I have coloured the Magnolia image Italy Tilda from the Stamp & Cutz CM-16. She is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. I have tried to use the same colours that you find in the papers. The colour of the dress is Bundled Sage.

The cute little butterflies are cut out from a Vintage Spring Basic pattern paper. I have just inked them on the edges with Distress Ink pad, Walnut Stain; as all the paper edges. The heart tags are made with a Doohickey from Magnolia, others are made mostly with dies from the DooHickey box vol 9, Fairytale.

Some new texts on my tags this time, they are from the Norwegian magazine Ett Trykk, Norsk Stempelblad. I have been chosed to be one of their guest designers for 2017. There will be six magazine this year, and in each you will among many others find some of my cards. And ofcourse I use my Maja papers 😉

The tags are made with Bazzill Kraft and I have added some Maja papers to finish the cute look :) The shape of my card is made with a GoKreate die. The lovely laces are from the shop LLC, the same as my doilies. And as you see I have coloured with white Gesso here and there.

Hi there! How are you? I really hope you are having a lovely holiday. I know this time of year can be sad for many, often because the ones they have dear are not here anymore. I really miss my mother who passed away three years ago, especially at this time of year. She loved everything about Christmas, and mostly because she could bring the family together. I think that is an important thing I have learned from her, and that I can be better at. Just to spend time with family and loved ones. But I am not that good cook that she was :)

Home-for-the-holidays-P

Some nights ago I went to my friend Audhild, and we sat down colouring together with two other friends. It was so nice. And even if I sat there for hours, this image was the only one I had time to colour. I really love the blue and brown colours in the “Home for the holidays” collection. And felt it was perfect for little Tilda here (Tilda with sock puffs).

IMG_6141

I made some poststamps with the sheet called “Love the snow” and a die from Magnolia (Vintage Box, 3rd edition). The little snowmen are really cute.

IMG_6142

The snowflake and the stars are from a banner from Wycinanka. If you look closely on the card you can see that I have tore the paper and put a lace and some more papers inside. But as always I decorate too much, so that it is difficult to spot what I had planned to show you :)

IMG_6176

Here in the west part of Norway we haven’t had snow yet. I am longing for some snow now, not only rain. We have had the extreme weather Urd howling around our house. But luckely it was not strong enough to make any damage around here.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my card today. Wish you a lovely day. And since I will be in the Maja Design Creative Team for another year (Yay, soooo proud! A big thanks to Camilla and Marie for having me!), I will be making a new post in two weeks.

But before I end, I will show you the papers I have used for my project:

Big warm Christmas hugs from,

Hi there! I will show you a giftbox I made with wonderful papers from Maja Design. It is not Christmassy at all, but I will give you the tutorial on how I made the simple box; and who knows, maybe you want to try to make a box like this in a Christmassy style?! :)

1

Cut out two papers measuring 30 x 7 cm. Then fold both at 6 cm.

2

Then fold at 10,5 and 21.

3

Make cuts like this.

4

Then start with the lid on the box. Cut out two papers measuring 4 x 30 cm. Also here fold at 1 cm first.

5

Then fold the other way at each 10,6. This is because the lid has to be a bit larger than the bottom part of the box.

6

Make the cuts.

7

Put the parts together like this.

8

And this.

9

Cut out parts to fasten inside the bottom of the box and the lid. (10,4 x 10,4 and 10,5 x 10,5).

10

Like this.

11

Then use the background die to cut out the bottom part and one on the lid. I use a harder cardboard for this.

12

I also have painted the edges with white Gesso.

After putting the parts together and decorate them with beautiful Maja Papers, I have decorated the box on the top with different elements made with DooHickey dies from Magnolia (Vintage Box vol 3). I will show you some details:

IMG_5439

I just felt I had to decorate the whole box with butterflies:)

IMG_5466

The lovely photos and letters are also Maja Design papers.

Hi there! I am back with a short post for you today. It is sooo busy this time of year, and I only had time to make a tag for you. I have used this beautiful papers from the Vintage Romance collection.

Vintage-Romance-P

The cute image is a new one from Magnolia, and she is called Happy 2017 Tilda. She is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers. And for the pink colour on her dress I have mixed together Victorian Velvet and Dusty Concord. For the darker parts I have used Hickory Smoke and Frayed Burlap.

IMG_6058

I have decorated the whole tag with different laces, and then added some Maja papers. I have also used some small doilies and cheese cloth. The small flowers are punched out with a Small Retro Flower Punch. The postmark stamps are from Stempelglede. I have also added Fran-Tage on the the edges of the circle. Inside the flowers I have put some Liquid Pearls, and also on the scallops around the image.

IMG_6081

Here is the paper used. Passion behind Tilda, and Walk with me for the flowers. This is a good way to use left overs 😉

I wish you a lovely time now before Christmas, and not a stressful one. Try to take some breaks and spoil yourselves!

Big hugs,

Camilla

Today I will show you a giftbag that I have decorated.

I have coloured the sweet image from Magnolia called Holly Wreath Tilda, with Distress Inks re-inkers, in the same colours as the I wish papers I have used. I love these warm nostalgic colours. The Merry Christmas text is also from Magnolia. The postmark stamps around the image are from Stempelglede.
