Welcome dear Maja friends!

I was inspired to create a Pop – Up season card in vintage style.
I love it to use the amazing cutting dies from Sizzix
with the very good qualitiy papers from Maja Design.
Always a perfect combination with Distress inks as well.

I used some amazing papers from the latest Christmas/ Winter collection Holidays in the Alps
and from the older, but wonderful as well ‘I wish’ collection
I wish for frosty mornings
Many thanks for your visit!
I wish you a beautiful advent season!
It’s springtime and the daffodils are already blooming everywhere, simply wonderful.
I was inspired to combine the bright yellow flowers with a rusty shade.
This radiates the charm of a beautiful old farmer’s garden, I love such beautiful places.
I used again a beautiful background paper from the awesome paper collection ‘Vintage Spring Basics’.
The sheet ‘1st of March’ together with ‘6th and 10th of March’
were absolutely perfect for a mixed media layout in a rustic vintage style.

Have a beautiful springtime weekend!
Hello and welcome Maja friends.
Tina Ollett with you today to share my inspired Maja Designs Moodboard project for March.
This is “Remember”…..
I have used this photo on many occassions but never in the coloured form. For some unkown reason to myself I never ever knew my daughter was actually wearing a pink dress in this pic until I come across the original cleaning out my photo stash last week. Well I think I can be forgiven because this little girl in the photo is about to turn 14. So it was a while ago that the photo was taken. On this day she had been riding up and down on her scooter when she had a fall from the scooter. She was not impressed that it has happened at all and sat and sulked for some time. I don’t know what made me take the photo but it is a huge favourite of mine.
For my project I have used the papers from the Nyhaven collection. I would have to say that this is my number one on my Maja Design list of collections. I also believe I have made more layouts from this collection than any other in my time on the team.
Strolling along the canal
I have to say that I love to distress my Maja papers. They come up a treat when distressed heavily. And they give a great effect to shabby chic projects. So I did a little tearing and distressing of my photos.
I have added in lots of Dusty Attic chipboards, 49andMarket flowers, muslin, prills and I also added texture to my background page using the mini hearts stencil from Dusty Attic.
You can see the heart stencil above here. They are just so cute.
The crackle effect can be seen above. Leaving your chipboards to dry on their own has a better outcome than heatsetting. It is often hard to wait but I think the wait is well worth it.
And for you, a little video of my creating time during my project “LOVE”. I hope you enjoy it.
That is all from me tonight. I hope you have enjoyed popping by. Thankyou for doing so. And until next time take care and happy scrapping.

Hello and welcome Maja fans. Tina Ollett with you today to share a project created using the gorgeous collection of Vintage Autumn Basics. I hope you enjoy this layout which I have titled
“Memories are timeless treasures of the heart”.
I decided to go with the colours of the clothes my little girl was wearing in the photo. She had camoflague shorts on so the greens in this were quite dark. To highlight this green I decided to lighten the papers by distressing and sanding all of the layers that I used for this project. I have listed the papers that I have used to do this project below.

The addition of Dusty Attic chipboards were added in to help frame the photo. And adding this to the photo prompted me to wrap some garden vines and frames around the chipboards.
I have added in some moss and art stones. Here you can see the lovely distressed layers.
I have also made some resin moulds of the bird and Window and Shutters. They are so cute. The bird above and the windows and shutters below.
Some more close-ups for you.
Thanks for popping by today. I will see you back here next month. Until then take care and happy scrapping.
