Hello, our blog fans. You haven’s seen me for a while here. I’m really sorry but I was busy with the school projects and the work. Today I decided to show my first inspiration created for Christmas with the “Denim&Friends” Collection. May some of you missed my work here. I’m extremely happy to be back! Ok. Let’s show what I’ve created for you:
Hi everyone! I am back with a shaker card today. I am making some videos on You Tube for Magnolia, and this is my final product. In the last video I show how to make a shaker card, and how I made this card. It is on the Magnolia channel today. I have used some gorgeous Maja papers for my project.
I thought this collection would fit my project perfectly!
I have used Distress Inks, re-inkers and Markers for the image.
Here you see the shaker card, which is filled with glitter.
Some more details. The cute flowers are from Petaloo.
I think the flowers match the papers so well.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!
Hi dear crafting friends! Here I am back with a card using lovely papers from the Denim & Friends collection, together with a beautiful stamp from Stempelglede and flowers from the lovely Petaloo by Flora Craft.
I just love this collection, as blue is my favourite colour to work with!
Aren’t these flowers from Petaloo just stunning!?
The image is a stamp from Stempelglede, and I have used Distress ink, re-inkers for my colouring.
Look at these beautiful Petaloo flowers!! I have added som white Gesso on to them as well.
Takk “Thank you” is a stamp from Stempelglede. I have used Spellbinder dies and a barbecue stick to fasten it on.
We have been specially sponsored by Petaloo by FloraCraft. You can also find them on Facebook HERE.
Hello friends. Tina Ollett with you here today to share my newest Maja Designs creation. I have reverted back to a favourite collection this time around……. “Summertime”. With this beautiful collection I created a soft shabby layout full of gorgeous Petaloo flowers from Penny Lane Garden Collection. Petaloo are sponsoring Maja this month with their wonderful flowers…… thank you Petaloo !!
Oh how I loved this collection I think I have already mentioned that but it definitely is a favourite for me. As always my layout evolved slowly and didn’t finish off how I had imagined by I was quite happy with my end project. Below are all the papers I used from this collection. Some of the papers were gessoed to help with the effect I was looking for. I have used lots of media and paints to colour my papers and Dusty Attic chipboards.
Is always the best

My background papers was firstly primed with gesso and then I laid down a run of 3D Gloss gel and over that some very distressed muslin. This was my starting point and from here I layered my page with photo matting papers from the Summertime collection and then the sepia toned photo over the top.
Around my photo I used some beautiful Leafy Stem Dusty Attic chipboards. To the right of the photo I added in a Arch Window also from Dusty Attic. These were all dressed in Crackle Pastes, inks (Distress Inks) and Prima Art Alchemy Green Gold Acrylic Paint. You can see above that I also added in some Art Stones.
I did a little stamping with a Carte Postal stamp at the side of my photo and very randomly with a script stamp.
For my title I have used a very old rub on that I added to some transparency paper and cut out. I have the hugest collection of rub-ons that I just can’t get enough of!!
You can see above that I also added some Texture Crackle Paste to my background page to help bring the project together. Lastly I went over my whole project dry brushing with white gesso to help keep this very muted and to of course keep the photo the centre of attention. This photo is of my youngest daughter which was taken by a friend at a school excursion a few years back now when she was only in prep. How time flies she is now a highschooler!!
Well that is all from me today. I so hope that you enjoyed my project and I hope to see you back here again very soon. Stay tuned for more design team prettiness tomorrow.
Take care and happy crafting!!
Goodmorning & happy Friday Maja Fans,
Today I have a layout to share with you all in honor of being a mom. In life we all want our kids to grow up and be amazing young people and trust in what they can achieve…..Our boy is a charming 12 year old kiddo and I love him to the moon and back. Yesterday was a disaster day of creating that I tore a whole layout apart and threw it away! Am I the only one? Or are there more of you that have that sometimes. A couple of day’s ago I also deleted all my inbox messages from my hotmail too….so I think I am having a bad week lol. Hopefully all will get better soon so I don’t feel like I do now which is rushed…
I used the pretty Nyhavn sheet as my background and added two other colors to make the picture pop of my layout. It’s totally a different style then what I was creating before I trew it away….because that was all pink and girly. I really love to create with pink but this time it didn’t work at all. I used some stencils on my background with some black paste this time.
All the chipboard peices are treated with ink, spray’s, acrylic paint and embossing powder and they are all by Dusty Attic. I also added a flair too I am totally hooked on those at the moment.
The flowers I used are from three different companies which are 49 and Market, Petaloo and Prima. I love making flower clusters like these. They add so much to your page at least that is what I think do you agree with me??
Maja Design papers used: Vintage Summer Basics collection: 1934 bs, 1899 bs & 1904 bs, Crea Diem collection: Den Oersattliga Tiden, Nyhavn collection: King’s Square.
Thank you so much for stopping by I hope you enjoyed my post today, and I have inspired you to play with your lovely Maja Design goodies have a lovely weekend…..
