Good morning, Maja friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
The summer holidays started in most countries with school education 😉 And so many of us realise their travellin dreams and go to see the world. Even though nowadays smartphones are mostly used to collect and share memories, there are still many traditional freaks like scrapbookers and journal artists who prefer to keep accounts of their travels in paper books. And so here’s one for them:
I made the notebook using my favourite masculine collection, Denim&Friends. The hemisphere pattern papers from the 6×6 pad were just perfect for the covers! I decorated the front with strips of plaid paper and signature strips and added some stamping and a die-cut wind rose. I placed the notebook title in a metal frame attached with nail-like brads.
The notebook closes with a piece of rubber elastic. A fabric brad acts as a kind of stopper for it.
I decorated the inner covers and the title page too, using a lot of Tim Holtz stamps. I also added a kraft envelope for some loose pages, photos, tickets etc. one might want to collect during summer travels.
And some more stamping on the back cover 🙂
And here’s what I used for the notebook:
Maja Design papers:
Jeans & Shirt
Other: stamps: Tim Holtz; die: Cheery Lynn Designs; chipboard covers: Scrapiniec; notebook insert: Studio75; kraft envelope: Anita’s; brads: Rayher, Craftmania; metal elements: my stash.
So what do you think? Would you take that notebook with you fro your holidays?
See you soon!
Hi Everyone, Its Keren here for the Maja Design blog with a new project.
I created another gratitude journal using the Vintage Summer basics collection.
I covered a plain notebook with the 1922 paper from the collection and even cut a small border for the edge
for the doily under the flowers I used the 1904 paper as it was pretty neutral. Then I embellished with some Prima Marketing flowers and vines.
I used the Vintage Summer Basics collection to cover this journal:
and here are the papers I used from the collection:
Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design Blog
Have a Wonderful day!!
I’m super excited to be joining the Maja Design DT and today I’m showcasing my first project.
I created a Shabby Chic Journal Cover to give as a gift to someone and I knew the Vintage Spring Basics collection were perfect for covering the journal.
Below, is a short step by step video tutorial on how I created it.
Here are some close-ups of my journal cover:
To create texture in the background I used a script The Crafters Workshop stencil with some modelling paste. I wanted to keep it very clean and shabby.
I used some matching Prima Marketing flowers, leaves and vines to embellish the book.
The doily under the flowers was cut out of the 7th of May Vintage Spring Basics paper using Prima’s die-cut metal doily.
To cover the book I used the April 3rd paper and for the doily I used the May 7th paper from the Vintage Spring Basics collection below.
