Hi dear Maja fans! Today I want to show you how I made these two cupcakes. The lovely papers used are from the Vintage Romance collection.

Vintage-Romance-P

Ok, let’s start with showing how it is made!

1

Here is all you need for your cupcake: Dies from Magnolia, a Styrofoam ball, two Maja papers measuring 30,5 x 4, 5 cm, two circles cut out from hard cardboard (1 ¾ “), a paper measuring 13 x 13 cm, laces and ribbons, metal embellishments and of course your favourite Tilda.

2

Find the middle of the paper measuring 13 x 13 cm.

3

Put the circle in the middle and draw around it.

4

Then cut the paper like you see in the photo. Then score around the circle.

5

 

6

Fasten the circles on both sides of the paper.

7

Put the ball inside and fasten it with glue, also fasten the sides of the papers on the ball. Like you see here.

8

Cut off the longest papers. I cut them down to 4 cm.

9

Make a cut for the tag. Remember to make it as deep as you can.

10

Then you can easily place your tag inside.

11

Here are the two papers which I have folded on each cm. I will now glue it on.

12

Here is the tag.

13

I use a needle and thread and sew the thread up and down on the lace, so that it curles up nicely.

14

Then I fasten it to the cupcake. It looks like frosting :)

15

For the flowers, I cut them in half.

16

Then spray them with water to get them curled up.

17

I curl them up, and leave them to dry.

18

Then glue them on to the ball.

20

Cut more flowers in half and curl them a little with the tools.

19

Make a lovely doily for the cupcake to stand on.

21

Continue with more layers and end it with some more flowers.

Here is some pictures of the finished cupcakes. Doesn’t they look yummy!?

The beautiful Maja papers are just wonderful to work with, and gives the cupcakes the perfect romantic, vintage look. The cupcakes were also made for Magnolia’s DooHickey vol 14. Thank you so much for visiting the blog today!

Hi dear Maja fans! I am back with a giftbag this time, filled with lovely chocolate. And I have of course used my new favourite collection, the Denim & Friends Collection.

Denim-P

I have cut out different elements using the lovely papers. This time in more brownish colours and over to yellow. I have used DooHickeys from Magnolia for the tassels, hearts, tags and flowers.

IMG_8494

To make the flowers look like this, I cut them out, then sprayed them with water, curled them, and let them to dry.

IMG_8495

I have coloured the image from Magnolia with Distress Ink, reinkers and Markers. I use syntetic brushes size 0 and 000. And the paper to stamp on is called The Langton.

Under you can see the bag from the side.

Goodmorning Maja fans,

Oh how I love my beautiful Maja Design papers…..today I’d like to show you a little card with handmade flowers and a lot of bling which is totally not me but I loved making this card. This card is made out of four different collections but my base was the pretty “Summertime” collection. This is a card I made for my mother for the upcoming mothers day hihihi yes I am pretty early this time….

It’s a easel card made out of cream card stock and the flowers are made out of dies and I finished them off with some glass glitter and some mica powder to give it more shine. Also I added some bling swirls, some shine spray & cream prills.

Goodmorning Maja friends,

Today I am here with you all to show you a card I made with the lovely “Vintage Baby”collection! I am getting more and more addicted to that collection because of the soft colors and that you have both blue & pink sheets in it. For today it’s a baby boy card with handmade flowers and a rattle shaker with metal pieces in it {also some beads and glass glitter}

20161214_133401_HDR000000000001

I cut out different pieces of the blue & darker brown papers and placed them on top of each other to get more dimension, underneath the last layer I added some cheese cloth and a paper doily that I cut in half. The card is all made out of dies from a manufacturer I design for. Sorry for the different shades in the pictures but we have some bad weather and my camera is acting up!

What is great about using dies is that you can make your own flowers and you don’t have to worry about the colors not fitting well on your work. I always had a problem finding the perfect blue shade color for my work and now that problem is being solved by making my own flowers. Maja Design papers really allows you to make beautiful paper flowers from their collections because of the high quality & thickness of the papers.

Actually I used three other Maja Design collections here too, the blue flowers are made with “Nyhavn”collection! The flower with the beads in the center is made with the “Vintage Romance” collection and the feathers & leaves are from the “Vintage Summer Basics” collection and they all go so well together don’t you think so too??

Maja Design papers used: Vintage Summer Basics: 1905 bs, Nyhavn: Old Townhouses bs, Vintage Romance: Marriage proposal bs, Vintage Baby: It’s a boy bs, Adorable bs, Special Delivery bs & Die cuts bs

Hi lovely friends,

Today I would like to share some cards with you using different Maja Design collections. I have to say I am totally hooked on using Maja Design papers so for every project I make I always think which of their collections will fit my theme…..all the cards I will show you today where made for my DT work at Cheery Lynn Designs {a die manufacturer}! But using my precious Maja Design papers……

Sweet Love:

For this shaker card I used the pretty “Vintage Romance” collection and just plain creme card stock and a bunch of dies. I really love the dimension of the flowers that’s what the papers do because of the high quality they are.

For my third card I used the amazing “Vintage Autumn Basics” collection and for the centers of my flowers I used micro beads which I think worked out really pretty. The background sheet with the blue flowers is one of my favorite papers from this collection.

This is card is one of my favorites ever made and that is probably because it’s purple using the “Vintage Spring Basics” collection helps too and I the use of my favorite dies…..The you are awesome phrase is great too!
