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 Sweeties,

Today I’m up on Maje Design blog with a new layout featuring the Celebration collection. I chose a photo of my father with his parents and his sister taken in 1959.

I tore the Champagne sheet in three pieces, and I glued them to the Anniversary. Then, I stamped the background with a brown ink before priming it with clear gesso.

Next, I added a design with a stencil and white crackle paste. I let it dry naturally.

I die-cut some leaves in a watercolor paper, that I colored with green and brown inks.

I cut a few papers to add under the photo as well as sisal. I started to build the composition with different elements: flowers, doily’s scraps, leaves and a black street sign.

When happy, I colored lightly the background with green, brown and pink inks.

Hello sweet Maja Friends

I think like many of you I always loved Alice in wonderland.

I especially love the Alice movies Tim Burton made , the costumes,  the art,  make up ..everything.

Recently I rediscovered scrapping  at 6 x12inch papers . And I must say it’s really fun to scrap this size .

So one and one makes two and I decided to make a Tim Burton Alice serie in this half size and here you have the first one.

Alice.

i printed a queen of hearts I found on pinterest and tucked it behind Alice her picture like she is peaking around the corner , nosy as she is.

 

I added a bunch of roses from wild orchid craft

And a pocket watch, from the white Rabbit.

I used papers of the celebration collection , the strips with text are from Tim Holtz

 

With all my heart…

Hi everyone! Here I am with a card using the Celebration Collection. This time I have mixed the pink and blue papers from this wonderful collection.

The shape of the card is cut out with a GoKreate die. Then I have made it an easel card. I have cut out a heart from Spellbinder dies, and placed it all with flowers.

The text from Stempelglede says: You are special.

I made some poststamps from a lovely flower papers, with a DooHickey die from Magnolia. The postmark stamp is from Stempelglede.

The image is from Magnolia. I have coloured her with Distress Ink, re-inkers. The blue is Weathered Wood, and the pink is Victorian Velvet. I have used the colour Hickery Smoke to make the darker places, and shadows. I think she is beautiful with flowers in her hair. The text on the tags are from Stempelglede.

This card was also in the February issue of Ett Trykk. As a presentation card of my self, and my style of cardmaking. Here comes a list of the papers used:

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog!

With love,

Sweet Memories

Goodmorning lovely Maja Fans,

Are you enjoying the spring weather…here in The Netherlands we had some pretty sunny days but that is over now, sadly but hopefully soon we can enjoy the sun again. For today I have a layout to share. Two weeks ago my computer died on me and I could not post my project {sorry for that} but now my husband fixed that and I can edit my work again yeah. This layout is made with two collections “Celebration” & “Denim and Friends” and Camilla her lovely daughter Freja <3 is on the picture.

On the beackground of my layout I added the pretty waterdrops stamp by Gabrielle Pollacco {still one of my favorite stamps sets ever} but before I added that stamp I used two other stamps to one crackle and one script stamp. After prepairing my background I treated my chipboard pieces with several acrylic paints layered on top of each other to get a worndown look.

After I treated the chipboards I added my flower clusters. Then I took my photograph and layered it on two sheets of the 6×6 paper pads then I placed it on top of the chipboard frame to get more dimension.  At the end I took out a letter sticker sheet from webster pages and made the word bliss and in that corner I placed a metal piece.

At the end I used some of my white spray and gesso to lighten up my flowers and papers…but I also added some art stones and some sea shells. I think that is it on how I created this layout. I had a lot of fun also because we have a son and I really enjoy making layouts with girls being the focal point.

Maja Design papers used: Celebration: Glamour bs & Champagne bs, Denim & Friends: Streetwear bs.

    

Thank you very much for your visit, I hope I have inspired you to go and create something beautiful with your Maja papers. Have a wonderful & sunny day!

Love xoxo
