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 ūüėČ

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.

Goodmorning lovelies,

I hope you are all doing well and enjoyed your time spent with family at Christmas. Oh boy is it cold here in The Netherlands brrr so that’s why I made some simple wintery cards to show you all made out of scraps. From time to time I love to use my leftover Maja Design papers and make something pretty this time I made these cards.

Hello once again. Tina O with you here today with a little Christmas cheer.

I, as a rule do not do cards, but I felt as I should as we a coming into Christmas in only a few days time. With this in mind and the fact that it has been a long time since I have created a card, I have kept it pretty simple. I wanted to do something a little vintage with a shabby touch.

2016-12-20 maja card 008 (718x800)

To create this card I started with a Kraft Cardstock base and cut a 23 x 10cm card base. The top of this was then layered with some Dusty Attic corrugated board. And on top of the corrugated I have used the new “I Wish” collection. Because I wanted a vintage feel I stayed with the rustic brown colours with the addition of cream and green. I tore section of both¬†“Those memories will last” bs and also¬†“You a happy New Year” bs.¬†These would have to be my favourites pieces from the collection as you will remember I used them in a previous layout using the I Wish Collection.

2016-12-20 maja card 011 (600x800)

The christmas leaves I have used for this project were dressed with some Walnut Gold glimmermist to take away the darkness of the green but also to add in a touch of gold.

2016-12-20 Maja 005 (600x800)

I wrapped the corrugation with a large piece of twine and left it hanging to the side. Over the top of the twine I added in some Dusty Attic Baroque Chipboard to cover my knot which was embossed and sanded.

2016-12-20 Maja 010 (600x800)

I have cut the postage stamp from the Ephemera Sheet and added it tucked above the cluster just peeping out.

2016-12-20 Maja 006_edited-1 (600x800)

I dry brushed my embellishments with white gesso to tone the card colours down a little and to keep within the shabby/ vintage style.

2016-12-20 Maja 003 (600x800)

My title “Merry Christmas” was cut from the base strip of “I wish those memories would last”. These are always perfect for that little added addition to any card or layout. So don’t throw them away!!

Hi lovely friends,

I can’t believe 2016 is almost over but 2017 is going to be a wonderful scrappy year for me as well….if you want to know more you could visit my blog and see. For today’s post I used the pretty new “I Wish”collection and made a layout with a winter touch and picture of our handsome boy way back in time. As much as I love making winter projects layout’s, cards and such I don’t like the cold at all and always wonder how it would be if I was born in a warm country. I find snow very peaceful although I dislike the mess it makes when melting…..for this layout I took out my favorite Martha Steward around the corner punch and lifted the corners so that the middle part didn’t look so high!

20161216_101310_HDR100000

What I really do like about Maja Design papers are the extra borders you get on each sheet….on this layout I used two of them to accent my layout! They are a great pieces of extra to compliment your work. On the background sheet I added some paste, spray, snow and stamps also all the chippies are by Dusty Attic which are treated with paint, embossing powder and snow. The edges of my layout are of course distressed and stitched.

Lately I am hoarding straws {kind of a new fetish for me lol} I love to use them on my layout.¬†Did you ever use straws?? If so I would love to see your work or maybe you could enter this months challenge…..I really love this months mood board. I just love the fact that you could win a whole collection of your choice awesome right?

Welcome back ! Tina O with you today to share my next Design Team project.

We recently celebrated our youngests 12th birthday, and thinking of what to buy her was a nightmare. It kept me awake for many nights let me tell you. But one night I had an epiphany!! Chickens!!! My husband thought that I had lost my marbles finally, but it turns out that it is the best birthday present she has ever received. This photo was taken of her a couple of days after she received all 6 of them. I think this photo captures her happiness. She is truly devoted to these little guys who may I add have grown so very quickly in the past weeks. They love to sit on her shoulder and eat from her hands. She even does her violin practice outside with them whilst they are running free under her strict supervision. It is just a beautiful memory to save. So with this I created a soft pretty page to help her remember her happiness at receiving these little guys. Oh and by the way the little fellow in the photo has been named “Duck”! So funny, but as funny as it sounds it really suits her!

2016-12-03 Happiness 009 (800x800)

Ok so now onto the layout. Like I said I wanted to create something something soft and pretty, so to do this I have used ¬†7th of April from the Vintage Spring Basics collection teamed with¬†the 2nd of April bs. When I started out I really didn’t have much of an idea of where I was going with it but as the days rolled on I started to lean towards more of a mixed media layout.

Vintage-Spring-Basics-P

8th of March / 7th of March and 2nd of April bs

2016-12-03 Happiness 018 (600x800)

On the gorgeous 7th of April patterned paper ( I love polka dots) I have firstly embossed a favourite stamp “Postmarks’ randomly with Aged Silver embossing enamel. I dressed¬†my Dusty Attic ¬†chipboard ATC frame and Page Pebble #9 with a little Buttercup Liquid Pearls and then randomly added in a little of the Aged Silver embossing enamel to tie it all together.

2016-12-03 Happiness 020 (600x800)

Of course to pretty this layout up I had to add in some lace to help the photos pop from the background. Also to help with this I added in some Inka Gold watered down and beautiful blooms.

2016-12-03 Happiness 021 (600x800)

Vintage Spring Basics 8th of March was used for my little additions of those tiny tiny butterflies….they are just so adorable. And of course and yet again you might say, the clocks from The Vintage Autumn Basics sheet XVI. Love me some clocks to represent time! Always a great addition to any page I think. These have been dressed in Distress Crackle Paint.

2016-12-03 Happiness 022 (600x800)

You can see more of the lace here and also the chipboard floral frame #2. The effect the Aged Silver embossing powder creates is more than stunning!

 Other Materials Used to complete this project are:

Dusty Attic Floral Frame #2, Page Pebbles #9 & ATC Frame

Versamark Embossing Ink

Stampendous Aged Silver Embossing Powder

Tim Holtz Distress Crackle

Viva Inka Gold Turkis Turquoise

Liquid Pearls (Buttercup)

Kaisercraft Clear Stamp – Postmarks

Large Lace Motifs

Flower Stems

Well that is all I have for you today. I am already working on my next layout. Hope I can surprise you with something a little different!! Until next time take great care of yourselves. x
