Hi everyone! Today I want to show you the wedding card I made for an earlier pupil of mine’s wedding. So it was a bit special to be asked to make a card for her. Therefore I wanted to do something extra. So I made both a frame and a book, then put them together. And I had some perfect papers for it! Just love the new collection, Miles Apart.

All sides are decorated with the gorgeous papers. Inside and outside.

On the front you see the frame I made here. The size of the card measure 14 x 15 cm.

The butterflies are cut out from a Maja Design sheet. This from The Vintage Spring Basics Collection, and it is called 6th of May.

Let’s open the book!

The stamps outside are from Magnolia. Inside I have used stamps from Stempelglede.

Inside the pocket on the left there is a paper to write a greeting on.

Here are the papers used:

Congratulations

Hi everyone! I hope you all are fine. I am back with a late night card. This time I have made a frame card with the gorgeous papers from the Vintage Summer Basics Collection. The paper you can spot the best on the card is called 1933 (with flowers).

I have painted this Sitting Tilda from Magnolia with Distress Ink, reinkers and Markers, to match the papers. I think both colours and papers fit so well together.

Inside the frame I have cut out a bird house from the papersheet called 1925. The same paper I have used on the base on the card.

The text “Gratulerer” on top of the card is made from a die from Papirdesign, and means “Congratulations”.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have painted the flowers and papers with White Gesso, to give the card a more shabby look.

Under you can see how I have put the card together, as I have first made the frame, and then fasten it to the card.

Thats all from me tonight! Stay safe!

With love,

A frame card

Hi everyone! I am back with a frame card I have made. I hope you all are fine<3

I have used papers from both collections above for this card. The frame is coverd with a sheet from Denim & Friends, but the rest I have used are from the Little Street Cafe Collection.

I wanted to capture this sweet Tilda out walking outside late at night. It is a starry and bright sky, and there are some fireworks as she walkes along the lane.

Therefore I found this lovely blue spotted paper from Denim & Friends, for the back. And it fittet so nicely with the Little Street Papers, which I have used to decorate a whole scene.

All the cut outs are made with dies from Magnolia.

White spots here and there are made with white Gesso. It gives the card a touch of shabby look.

The flowers are also made with Maja papers. Behind them I have put some Sissal gras.

The image is painted with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. Soft colours to match the papers.

The depth of the card/frame is one cm. And I have taken some photos of it laying down, to give you a better view of it.

 

 

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja blog.

With love,

In the waiting room

Hi everyone! I am back after some problems with my computer, but now it is fixed and as good as it gets. I made two cards with the gorgeous (and maybe my favorite collection) Summertime papers.  I just love the red and pink papers, so beautiful!

This card is a frame card, where I have made a frame, and put it on a card. I have used Malins tutorial. But I have started with a Bazzill Vanilla papers measuring 19 x 19 cm. Then scored it twice at one cm. The “frame” is measuring 3 cm. You will get this when you look at Malins tutorial 😉 The middle of the frame is measuring 9 x 9 cm.

As you can see we are at the doctors waiting room. Maybe you have had a toothache so bad that you went to the doctor as Tilda here has? Or is it the hospital? Anyway the nurse is ready to help them both 🙂

The flowers (Waterlilies) are also made with the lovely papers from the Summertime Collection. The images, dies and text are from Magnolia.

I have coloured the images with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja blog today!

With love,

A card with a frame inside!

Hi dear Maja fans! It is Camilla again, showing you a card I have made with the lovely papers from the Denim & Friends collection. Wow, I just love the new papers. I made this card to my aunt and uncle who both celebrate their 60 years birthday this Summer.

Denim-P

The card was inspired by a card made by the talented Cathrine Sandvik in the latest issue of Ett Trykk. Since there was no tutorial, I made it on my own. It is kind of making a frame card, only to put the frame inside the folder.

I have coloured the image from Stempelglede with Distress Ink, re-inkers. The pink is Victorian Velet, and the blue is Weathered Wood. I have also added some liquid pearls on to it.

Under you have a view of how it looks inside with the frame.

Blue and beige is some of my favourite colours to work with, and I think this collection is one of my favourite from Maja Design!

I hope you are having a wonderful Summer, with warm summer nights 🙂

Lots of love and hugs from
