Hello Maja fans!!!

It’s Mary here with you today sharing my latest layout featuring the beautiful ”Nyhavn” collection.

A sensational layout that was inspired by that beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

detail 1

I used for my background the ”Historical Atmosphere” paper and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”Strolling along the Canal” paper using both sides.

detail 2

I primed the background with white gesso and when it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays ”Hydrangea Blue”, ”Baby Blue Eyes Aqua” and ”Danny Zuko’s Denim” to give some color.

detail 4

I heat embossed the ”Sammi’s Swirls” and the ”Corner Gemma’s” chipboards with ”Oakleaf Olive” Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing powder. The title was treated in the same way. The chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing.

detail 5

To finish, I added some bronze micro beads and made some splatters with FW white ink.

That’s all for today, my friends!

Thank you for stopping by!

Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer here with you today. Sometimes when you see the collection, you have a certain association with it. So for me Nyhavn collection is strongly associated with the Masculine scrapbooking. Always when I play with it I am finishing with some masculine projects.

This time its 2 cards for a man.

Some tips when working with the men’s projects:

  • add some dark colors as the main accents
  • use some metal embellishments
  • flair buttons, wash tape, clock, star embellishments will always look appropriate

and the second card from the same collection:

Hello dear friends, its Evgenia Petzer with you today. When you think about MajaDesign papers, you always think about the feminine side of these papers, but there are some collections that are also perfect for the Man’s creations.

So I have made the card for man’s birthday using the Nyhavn collection.

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new set of cards featuring the Nyhavn collection.

Nyhavn's Cards by Pascale B.

I used the same background paper (Strolling along the canal) on both card and added the same design with a stencil and two metallic paints: one gold the other one silver.

Nyhavn's Cards by Pascale B.

On both card, I added a piece of the Old Townhouses paper as well as a piece of the Historical atmosphere paper.

On this one, I added yellow roses and leaves die-cut in the Enjoying Outdoors papers.

On the second card, I added blue and pink roses.

The two cards, even if they were made with the same papers, look totally different just because I’ve used two different colors of embellishments.

Good Morning, Maja Friends,

How are you going to spend your summer? as for me , we have planned a trip by car to Europe and we will visit some beautiful places there. I hope I will make tons of phots to scrap during the year.

So that is why I decided to make something, that will be perfect for a trip theme. Here is my Castle Mini Album

I found a fancy chipboard mini album, castle shape in my stash. so I thought it would be a nice idea to use it finally.

My choice was for Nyhavn collection, so great for your trip and travel projects. Once I have laready made the album with it, this time I had a very interesting shape for it.

I used only paper die cuts and some chipboard pieces, I didn’t want it to be a busy one, as I am still planning to add some pages for making the notes, so it’s a kind of travel book I would say.

However I made some flaps and photo frames, to fill it with the future pictures.

I also made some stamped embellishments, so easy and fast.
