Hello Lenet here  and this time I mad you this brag book.

Because is a minialbum that you carry in your purse so you can show and brag about your Family, pets or Any other thing you want to show or carry with you , I kept it quit simple.

Embellishments will get lose in your bag and destroy  the way  your lovely album looked. It closes with a magnet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The album contains 6 pockets with a acetate window and  notch closure at the back so the pictures are protected against any “dirt” , dust and other tiny things that can damage the pictures.

For this Album I used the Coffee in the Arbour collection , thought that was a good one to use for this project because  you share a lot drinking a good cup of coffee with friends right ?

Thank you very much for  visiting.

Hope you like my bragbook . Love to see you next time and don’t forget to comeback to take a peek at the gorgeous projects the other MajaGirls make for you.

A coffee tag!

Hi everyone! Here I am with a cute little tag I made with the gorgeous Coffee in the Arbour collection! I just love the beautiful colours, and for this one I have combined the soft purple with the soft green colours. Hope you like it!

The image from Magnolia is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers on water colour paper called The Langton. I use synthetic brushes, mostly size 0 and 000.  I have placed some Liquid pearls in her hair. The stamp is masked together with a sentiment stamp from the same collection (Upgrade Le Fleur).

The “Join me for a Coffee?” is cut out from the sheet called “Delicious Moments”.

The beautiful flowers are from Petaloo and Wild Orchid Crafts. I think they fit the papers so well.

Here a close up. The big rose is from WOC. I have placed some Sisal grass under the flowers. All the paper edges are inked with Walnut Stain, and the papers are sewed together on a sewing machine.

I have cut out the “gratulerer” text from Maja papers. The die is from Papirdesign, and means congratulation.

This tag was also published in the magazine Ett Trykk in the August issue.

I hope you are having a lovely Autumn. Maybe you find some time crafting?!

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja blog!

With love

A huge welcome to you! It’s Tina with you today to share my next Design Team creation.

This project for January, I have titled

…..”Forever Love”….

2017-01-17 2017-01-17 001 015 (800x800)

This, for me, was a layout of love. Scrapbooking for me is about the memories and sometimes the photos from the most special days of all, aren’t of the best quality but I always insist on using them no matter what. On our special day a professinal photographer was hired, but it was very unfortunate that during the development of our photos that something went horribly wrong. Due to the developing error we we did not receive a great deal of photo’s that were of a good quality or worthy of using to hang on our walls. We depended on our family and friends to help us with photo’s they had taken and this photo is one of them. We were so fortunate to have our two eldest attend our wedding. They were so excited the whole day through. My son walked me down the aisle with my Dad, something I will never forget and treasure always.

I am mad for anything at present that I can fussy cut from papers. And I found this in the Vintage Autumn Basics No. II sheet that was in my gorgeous Maja stash. I have cut at least a half of this sheet up and layered it in and around the page.

You can see above in the bottom of the photo the layering of journalling cards that I cut from Vintage Spring Basics “Days to Remember” and also from the Vintage Romance collections “Love Notes”. Amongst the several layers of journal cards I have alternated mats of “Raspberry Jam Cookies” from the Coffee in the Arbour collection. Yes I have mixed a lot of collections this time around . I find the beauty of Maja Designs ranges is that they just blend together so beautifully.

I have layered the  project with paper doilies, lace motifs, Dusty Attic’s gorgeous chipboards cut up, muslin and even a sewing spool. The sewing spool was wrapped with the bar strip from Vintage Romance’s bside of “Passion”. Passion was used as my background piece with the frame cut from Vintage Romance’s “She’s my Lady”.

This here, is the side on view of the base of the photo. The lace motif I have used here has been cut into many many pieces and divided throughout the layout to help give it movement.

I have tucked a few doilies around to help break up the pink from the flowers and the background.

I just loved these clocks found on the Vintage Spring Basics sheet. I have used the largest of the clocks and cut it to sit behind the photo so it did not overtake the whole layout. I cut some of the smaller clocks with the roses to sit on top of the large one layered.
