Hello Maja Design Friends. Jennifer Snyder here celebrating Spring with some floral cards.
Today I combined two Maja Design collections to create my cards; the Little Street Cafe Collection, Fika collection and Miles Apart. These are the individual sheets from the collections: “Feeling Good” paper from Little Street Cafe; “Be Safe” and “Distance” from Miles Apart; and “Hemgjord saft” from Fika.
The first spring card combines the yellow/gold color from Little Street Cafe with the beautiful purple tones of Fika.
The dies for the flowers are from Spellbinders.
This card uses the papers from Miles Apart. The delicate foliage pattern looks great with pink gingham paper.
I adore gingham as if that were not obvious in the brown gingham ribbon on the first card as well as the pink gingham ribbon on this card.
Thank you for stopping here.
Welcome Maja friends. I hope this post has found you happy and well. Tina with you today to share a layout project created using a mix of papers from differing Maja Design collections.
I have called this “My Sunshine”.
My background page was made using the Fika’s Sockerkaka and Crea Diems Sin lyckas smed. I created a framework 2.5 cm around the Sockerkaka paper and distressed it heavily. I then added Crea Diems Sin lyckas smed behind Sockerkakato allow the blue to shine through.
Sin lyckas smed
Det skrivna består
The sheet of Det skrivna består was cut into rectangular mats in differing sizes. I also added some rectangular mattings in differing sizes using Monochromes shades of Denim in Vintage Pink. These were all distressed heavily and randomly adhered together. I mounted the whole piece including the photo upon some 3D mounting tape and adhered it to the left of the layout.
I have used this adorable photo of my eldest daughter who just turned 18 this month. And because she has just turned that fabulous number I have used the Skeleton clockfaces to represent time gone past. I used two clocks from the collection and cut the smaller one in half to sit at the right of my layout.
The clockfaces were primed with white gesso and then coloured with Inka Golds in Hydrangea.
I have also used a panel of the Heart Attack Small. For this project I decided to simply emboss the full panel with Shabby Blue Embossing Enamel from Stampendous. I cut the panel into quite a few pieces and layered them around and in between layers of the Maja Design papers and lace and of course the other chipboards and flowers. Some of the itty bitty hearts I took out of the panel and scattered them around and through the clusters. You can see below the hearts taken out separately.
The Dusty title Sunshine was also dressed in the shabby blue enamel. You can see it above. The tiny weeny specs of gold that shine through are just so cute.
I have used lots of distressing to highlight the layers of papers also. Some sanding of my papers was also done to create the shabby style look. You can see this above.
I have also used one half of the pack of Ornate Scrolls another one of my favourite pieces. this was cut into two and divided behind the photo. I dressed this piece in Crackle Texture Paste and coloured it a little with the Hydrangea Inka Gold and some Ranger Star Dust Stickles to make it shine.
I have also used some gorgeous Birch lace cut into segments.
And that is all from me today. Until next time take care and happy creating.
Hello scrappy friends!
What can be better as a big cup of hot chocolate in this cold season?!
I was inspired to create a vintage layout to my favourite theme – Chocolate –
because ”She doesn’t ask silly questions, chocolate understands” 😉
Suitable to this theme I used the paper collection ‘Fika’, here can you find some wonderful shades of brown papers
in combination with the right motifs as cups, muffins, teapots and much more
I used the papers ‘Kärleksmums’, ‘Chokladmuffins’and ‘Kaffe tack! ‘
some close up’s
Stencils: Stampers Anonymous, Chipboards: Dusty Attic
Stamps: 49and Market, Cutting dies,
laces, embellishments, Art Stones, straws, wooden letters
I hope I could inspire you to try some new themes.
I was inspired to create a mixed media layout to a very essential thing of my life.
Coffee the most important meal of my day, nothing works without it.
Sure, you know it too.
It’s a very good mood maker in the morning, my daily needed vitamin drink ;-).
A friend says, yes, that layout is the right new wall decoration for my kitchen.
Why not, only the right picture frame is missing.
I used some Maja papers from the Fika Collection
.. hmm, it smells like coffee 🙂
… and so that the whole thing gets a little flavor,
I have also processed real coffee powder
Of course, some origin coffee beans shouldn’t be missing, or?!
Duty calls – tell her, I’ll call you back!
😉 🙂 😉
Thanks for your visit!
Have a good time!
Hi everyone! I am back with a purple card today, with a few papers from the lovely Fika collection.
The main image is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers. I have stamped the image from Stempelglede on The Langton watercolour paper.
I have tried to use the same colours as the papers when I was colouring the vintage garden stamp.
The text says “You are special” and is also from Stempelglede. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. And I have put some sisal grass behind them. The shape of the card is made with a die from Go Kreate.
I have added different layers onto the card.
I really hope you are having a lovely weekend! I am soon of on my Summer holiday, which this year will be Spain. By the way, this card was published in the Norwegian Magazine Ett Trykk.
Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!
