Hello out blog fans. Today I’m really late with the post. I totally forgot to show you my last card created for the mood board challenge. Have you seen it? In this inspiration, I would like to show you how universal are the Maja’s papers. I have used the Christmas Collection of paper to create completely no Christmas card. It’s a huge value of the papers!

I’m wondering if you are using the Christmas Collection due the yeat as well? If not – it’s good advice to try. Hope you will like my card. Hugs, Paulina

Hello, our blog fans. For the previous inspiration, I have created two childish cards. Today I would like to show you another project – this time I created a card box in the same style. It will be a gift for a Baptism.

I did not create the paper box from the scratches – I’m not so patient. I bought a ready base from a polish producer called GoatBox. The base is really easy to fold and then decorate. Paper came from the Maja’s “Vintage Baby” Collection. I love all type of delicate pattern and pastel colors, recently. 

This time I added some structure paste. I didn’t want to make many layers. I have chosen only some chipboards from Scrapiniec and paper flowers. Kept it as simple as possible (I did my best!)

 I hope you enjoyed today’s post. If you have any question – don’t hesitate to ask! I wish you a wonderful day. Hugs, Paulina

Listen to your heart

Hello dear friends!

Mary with you today and I have a new layout to share with you made for my February inspiration. I used papers from the gorgeous ”Vintage Spring Basics” collection along with some of my favorite Dusty Attic chipboards and 49 and Market flowers which I placed around a beautiful photo I found on Pinterest. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I choose for my page the ”9th of April” paper and made two layers on it using both sides of the ”11th of April” paper from the gorgeous  ”Denim & Friends” collection. I started by applying a coat of clear gesso on the background and then I created texture with modeling paste and a stencil.

Made some stamping here and there and used a Lindy’s Gang spray to add color.

Next, I painted all the chipboards with Finnabair acrylic paints.

When everything was glued down I added some art stones and glass beads. The final touch was made with some splatters with white acrylic ink.

Papers used:

 

I hope you enjoyed my project!

Thank you for stopping by!

Hello scrappy friends!

What can be better as a big cup of hot chocolate in this cold season?!

I was inspired to create a vintage layout to my favourite theme – Chocolate – 

because ”She doesn’t ask silly questions, chocolate understands” 😉

Suitable to this theme I used the paper collection ‘Fika’, here can you find some wonderful shades of brown papers

in combination with the right motifs as cups, muffins, teapots and much more

I used the papers ‘Kärleksmums’, ‘Chokladmuffins’and ‘Kaffe tack! ‘

some close up’s

 

 

other used products:

Stencils: Stampers Anonymous, Chipboards: Dusty Attic

Stamps: 49and Market, Cutting dies,

laces, embellishments, Art Stones, straws, wooden letters

I hope I could inspire you to try some new themes.

What’s your favourite?

Thanks for your visit!

Welcome!

February has begun, it’s still winter time.

In my last layout were the beautiful pages of the winter to discover, a magical dreamy castle like from a storybook. 

The everyday life has got us again and unfortunately is it too often dark, gray and gloomy.

But if the sun manages to make its way through the thick clouds, a hint of spring is already noticeable.

Today I want to introduce you to a slightly different mixed media layout. 

It shows a city silhouette in background in shades of grey, because I wanted a grungy look.

I used a monochrome paper from the latest paper collection, it’s a beautiful blue tone and always suitable for a winter mood.

I’m a big fan of this neutral monochrome paper collections, because I always like to go with my intuition, you have such a lot of possibilities to create your very own idea.

some details

some chipboards painted with rust colors

 a small cabochon in the middle of a gear chipboard

Together with a small photo ‘Love the Sun’,

 I use only a part from a die cut as shining sun.

 
 Don’t give up because this winter also comes to an end, hopefully soon!!

used Maja Design papers:

Other products used: Cutting dies, Dusty Attic Chipboards, Embossing powder, Stencils, Gesso (white, black + clear), Rust acrylic colours, Deco-Granules, Cabochon, Silver Metallic Paint 

Many thanks for your visit!

Have a beautiful time!
