Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

Today I’d like to share some projects I made with my lovely Maja Design papers all the flowers you will see on my projects are all hand made with dies. I love making winter projects although I dislike winter time here in The Netherlands the days are getting colder and the night longer. I love the getting cozy part but the rest not so much. My first project is a 8×8 layout made with different Maja Designs collections.

As I said I love playing with snow effects and I did that massively here on this layout…can you see which collections I have used here? Don’t you just love that picture? Although I dislike winter time I love snow and the peacefulness it brings….hope it will snow this year.

The Bermuda Triangle

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Home for Holidays collection. I chose one of my photomontages.

The Bermuda Triangle by Pascale B.

I started to stamp some leaves and some text with different Archival inks. When happy with the result, I primed the background with clear gesso. Next, I added a design with a stencil and clear crackle paste. I let dry.

In the meantime, I covered the shells with white crackle paste. I primed the boat with white gesso, then with clear gesso, and finally, I was able to add some colors.

With the same inks, I colored some Art Stones as well as natural moss.

I added some shine to the flowers with inks. And when the shells were dry, I primed them with clear gesso before coloring them too.

As the background was dry, so I added some colors with the same inks I have used to color the different embellishments.

I cut some papers to add under the photo and I glued all the embellishments with a 3D gel. To finish the layout I added some microbeads.

Chocolate Box For Grandpa

Good morning, Maja friends, welcome to the blog today :)

Remember my post two weeks ago? I made a chocolate box for Grandma and obviously needed one for Grandpa too. I don’t know about you, but even though I’m the only woman in the house and thus I’m surrounded by boys, it’s still quite difficult for me to create masculine projects. I always worry about not going too much on embellishments, or not make it too sweet… And so making this chocolate box was not so easy, but the Vintage Romance and Home For the Holidays collections came to help :)

I basically kept the same design pattern as with the Grandma’s box, but used blue and brown palette and of course masculine motives like this handsome man 😉

I added some more cut outs and chipboard pieces and the stamped sentiment that says: Grandpa, you’re superb! :)

mdgran2

I thought a little glam would not hurt, right? And so I added some glitter cardstock to the sides:

Inside I added soem stamping on background papers and also a tag to make writing wishes easier – you just pull it out and write not worrying about the decorated other side :)

Although I was a bit ill-at-ease, I really like the way the box turned out: masculine, but elegant with brown glitter cardstock to emphasise the celebration. What do you think?

 

Here’s what I used:

 

Other: dies: MFT; chipboard: Miszmasz Papierowy, wycinanka; brad: scrap.com.pl; vintage ribbon, metal charm: my stash.

See you!

Hi there! How are you? I really hope you are having a lovely holiday. I know this time of year can be sad for many, often because the ones they have dear are not here anymore. I really miss my mother who passed away three years ago, especially at this time of year. She loved everything about Christmas, and mostly because she could bring the family together. I think that is an important thing I have learned from her, and that I can be better at. Just to spend time with family and loved ones. But I am not that good cook that she was :)

Some nights ago I went to my friend Audhild, and we sat down colouring together with two other friends. It was so nice. And even if I sat there for hours, this image was the only one I had time to colour. I really love the blue and brown colours in the “Home for the holidays” collection. And felt it was perfect for little Tilda here (Tilda with sock puffs).

IMG_6141

I made some poststamps with the sheet called “Love the snow” and a die from Magnolia (Vintage Box, 3rd edition). The little snowmen are really cute.

IMG_6142

The snowflake and the stars are from a banner from Wycinanka. If you look closely on the card you can see that I have tore the paper and put a lace and some more papers inside. But as always I decorate too much, so that it is difficult to spot what I had planned to show you :)

Here in the west part of Norway we haven’t had snow yet. I am longing for some snow now, not only rain. We have had the extreme weather Urd howling around our house. But luckely it was not strong enough to make any damage around here.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my card today. Wish you a lovely day. And since I will be in the Maja Design Creative Team for another year (Yay, soooo proud! A big thanks to Camilla and Marie for having me!), I will be making a new post in two weeks.

But before I end, I will show you the papers I have used for my project:

Big warm Christmas hugs from,

Camilla
