Hello and welcome back to the home of Maja Designs. Tina Ollett back with you today to share my first layout using the gorgeous new collection of “Denim and Friends”.

This project has been titled

“You are Awesome”……

2017-07-18 You are awesome 019 (1024x1016)

Opening my box of goodies from the lovely ladies at Maja Designs was a definite hightlight of my week. My squeals of pure joy and excitement brought a number of my family members walking down to the art room to find out exactly what was going on.

Doing pretty layouts with copious amounts of flowers and embellishments is my go to thing for most projects, but today because this is mainly a masculine paper collection, I have opted to use a photo of my son who is quite happy not to be the centre of attention ever especially in my scrapbooking, but today it is! I captured this photo of him a number of years ago whilst we were on holidays at the Great Barrier Reef. We were on our way out to the reef on a very windy day and he was so very excited to be going snorkeling. The photo says it all.

I decided to keep this layout very simple with layering of all this fabulous collection. Of course I love to use woodgrain patterns to custom make the design for my chipboards and photo to sit. I used 2 sheets of Wood to create this using the first for the background page.

I have also added in the bs of Leather ( I also love polkadots) as a square frame to sit all of the cut wood to sit upon. And over this I have cut sections of Stonewashed to lay over this. My photo is also matted with Stonewashed.

 I have also used sheets of papers from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection, cutting some of the hot air balloons for embellishments to add to my project.

I have also used lots of yummy Dusty Attic chipboards to emphasise my photo. These were inked and painted and layered amongst the layers of papers to allow more dimension to my layout.

Well that is all from me today. I hope you enjoyed your visit. Remember to return tomorrow for another Design Team creation. Until then take care and happy crafting. xxx

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

Last time I shared my first layout(s) using the fabulous Denim&Friends collection, and I said I couldn’t stop cutting 😉

Masculine projects are usually difficult, even if you’re surrounded by boys 😉 But with this collection is just pure pleasure! Not only do you get a dozen of beautiful “masculine” patterns, but also a sheet full of men in jeans! 😉 I used two of those images to make two birthday cards for men. The first one is for a musician:

mdmasculine1

I layered several patterns in the background and added linen ribbon before I placed a guitar man image. Then I added screw-shaped brads and a music notes paper clip that can be detached and used for keeping music sheets together :)

mdmasculine4

I die-cut the sentiment and matted it with glitter cardstock, then added a piece of signature strip from one of the papers:

mdmasculine2

The other card is an 18-th birthday card:

mdmasculine3

I again layered some various patterns and placed the image on top, adding a metal charm on a piece of linen string. Then I added die-cut digits and some metal pointers:

mdmasculine5

I used the same die for the sentiment, but this time I didn’t mat it and it’s readable through the contrast between papers:

mdmasculine6

I am really pleased with the result – what do you think?

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: die: Rosy Owl, Memory Box; metal pointers: Making Memories; brads: Rayher; paper clip: Prima; acrylic gems: ScrapBerry’s; star charm, string, linen ribbon: my stash.

See you soon!

Hello our blog fans. Have you seen the new collections ?. “Denim&Friends” with new Monochromes are great! They are so universal – I have so many ideas to use them for. My today’s inspiration is a masculine card.

Denim&FriendsIt is a card for a nice young gentleman. From this papers you can create easily the masculine cards, albums etc.

Denim&FriendsI love layers … like you could already seen many times. I like to use a small details. Cut them and combine together.

Denim&FriendsDenim&FriendsDenim&FriendsDenim&FriendsDenim&FriendsLet me know what do you think about my project, please. Hope you will like it. If you already created any project with these gorgeous papers – let me know please :) I will drop by and take a look.

Masculine Cards

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today!

The day after tomorrow in Poland we celebrate Father’s Day – and for that occasion I have made some masculine cards :) Even though I’m the only woman in my house, I still find masculine cards a bit difficult, it always takes me more time to make one than with romantic flowery cards 😉 But with fantastic Vintage Romance images of handsome dudes the task is much easier 😉

I decided to use up some leftovers of the Home for the Holidays collection and made these two cards:

mdmen

The first card is more universal, as the stamped sentiment says “Best wishes” – and so it could be presented on Father’s Day too 😉

mdmen1

I layered two papers in the background and matted the central image with a die-cut gear border and hand-cut tags:

mdmen2

Then I added a metal charm, some vintage brads and acrylic gems to give the card more character and colour :)

mdmen3

The other card is aa birthday card and a vintage car image as the central piece.

mdmen4

Then I literally used up the smallest bits and scraps by punching squares and making a patchwork background :)

mdmen6

I also added some chipboard gears and a metal charm on a piece of plaid ribbon:

mdmen5

How do you like them? :)

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: die: Joy!Crafts; stamps: Lemonade; chipboard: Wycinanka; ribbon, brads: Rayher; acrylic gems: ScrapBerry’s; charms, string: my stash.

 

See you later!

Hello dear friends! Evgenia Petzer with you today and I wanted to show you the envelope that I made for a masculine type of present. You can always put there either the gift card or some money.

when it comes to the decoration of the masculine works, I always look for the chipboard, some meat embellishments, die cuts using either kraft or black yardstick. I love to add some black splashes to the cards.

Again, Nyhavn personally for me is a collection with a masculine touch, what do you associate it with?

Have a lovely weekend,
