Good morning, Maja friends, welcome to the blog today
Last time I shared my first layout(s) using the fabulous Denim&Friends collection, and I said I couldn’t stop cutting 😉
Masculine projects are usually difficult, even if you’re surrounded by boys 😉 But with this collection is just pure pleasure! Not only do you get a dozen of beautiful “masculine” patterns, but also a sheet full of men in jeans! 😉 I used two of those images to make two birthday cards for men. The first one is for a musician:
I layered several patterns in the background and added linen ribbon before I placed a guitar man image. Then I added screw-shaped brads and a music notes paper clip that can be detached and used for keeping music sheets together
I die-cut the sentiment and matted it with glitter cardstock, then added a piece of signature strip from one of the papers:
The other card is an 18-th birthday card:
I again layered some various patterns and placed the image on top, adding a metal charm on a piece of linen string. Then I added die-cut digits and some metal pointers:
I used the same die for the sentiment, but this time I didn’t mat it and it’s readable through the contrast between papers:
I am really pleased with the result – what do you think?
And here’s the list of my supplies:
Maja Design papers:
Jeans & Shirt
Stars & Stripes
Mono Denim – Brown bs
Other: die: Rosy Owl, Memory Box; metal pointers: Making Memories; brads: Rayher; paper clip: Prima; acrylic gems: ScrapBerry’s; star charm, string, linen ribbon: my stash.
Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today!
The day after tomorrow in Poland we celebrate Father’s Day – and for that occasion I have made some masculine cards Even though I’m the only woman in my house, I still find masculine cards a bit difficult, it always takes me more time to make one than with romantic flowery cards 😉 But with fantastic Vintage Romance images of handsome dudes the task is much easier 😉
I decided to use up some leftovers of the Home for the Holidays collection and made these two cards:
The first card is more universal, as the stamped sentiment says “Best wishes” – and so it could be presented on Father’s Day too 😉
I layered two papers in the background and matted the central image with a die-cut gear border and hand-cut tags:
Then I added a metal charm, some vintage brads and acrylic gems to give the card more character and colour
The other card is aa birthday card and a vintage car image as the central piece.
Then I literally used up the smallest bits and scraps by punching squares and making a patchwork background
I also added some chipboard gears and a metal charm on a piece of plaid ribbon:
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 :
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 !
Usually 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.
White gesso – added on the roses and the small details showed the texture and gave a pinch of a shabby chic style as well.
Tiny notebook – perfect to have it on your office desk. I used to have one and write down my inspiration, dreams etc…
Hope you like my project. If you have any question – do not hesitate to ask. See you soon Hugs, Paulina
Good morning, Maja Design friends, welcome to the blog today
I know many of you have already celebrated Mother’s Day, but in Poland this holiday comes on May 26th. And so for my today’s post I have two simple shabby chic cards for moms
Both are made using the Sofiero collection – soft, delicate colours and beautiful designs are simply perfect for the occasion. And so in the first card I layered sand-coloured papers in the background and placed two cut-out images on top. Then I added the sentiment in a decorative die frame and some mini roses:
I slightly distressed the edges of papers to give them a more shabby look. Small pearls are a cherry on top 😉
For the background of the other card I embossed the Monochromes white/sand paper to add some texture:
Then I placed a flowery tag on top onto which I stamped my sentiment. I put a decorative chipboard frame on top so that the sentiment pops out
I finished my card off with a small flower cluster:
Though simple, the cards still were a kind of a challenge for me: I had to make them flat enough to go into envelopes to be mailed With my love for dimension that was sooo hard!
