Hello everyone,

today i have quiet a different card to share.Its a envelope style card which also serves as a tiny mini album.I made two envelopes and attached it together and added a ribbon closure.I have used one of my favorite  collection “vintage baby”,i guess its been few years since its released but its so popular and i still keep seeing projects with this everywhere,so after hoarding it for so long i decided to use it:)

Maja designs papers are so sturdy and double sided ,so i used the paper itself to make the envelopes instead of cardstock,in this way it looks more elegant.

The inside of the envelopes has two photo mats one small and one big.The inside of the envelope can be filled with gift cards,or journal tag etc.

Maja papers used:Cherish , Our little miracle , Baby shower bs , Ephemera cards

Vintage-Baby-P

Thank you for stopping by.

Happy crafting

The gift of friendship.

Hello sweet Maja fans..

Today it’s my turn again to give you some inspiration.

This time I bring you a card made with  the gorgeous papers of the vintage summer basics papers.

I love this collection , it’s certainly one of my favorite.

We had some very nice weather the last few days and everything in nature just exploded,  flowers everywhere and the air is filled with their sweet scent.

that inspired me to make this card bursting with and from flowers.

I used flowers from Wild orchid crafts , pins ,ribbon and brad are from my private stash.

Thank you very much for your visit, hope to see you again next time.

Hello friends!

Soon is Mother’s Day and I want to give a little attention to my mother. I created a mixed media frame in a delicate shabby chic look.

 

I used a simply frame as basic. Firstly I made some ornaments with the help of moulds and air drying modeling clay.

These were glued to the frame with heavy gel medium, I added some metallic sticker too.

Then I painted everything over with Chalky Finish ‘Vintage’ paint from DecoArt.

Now put some heavy white gesso over the embellishments to bring out the texture and details on the frame.

some details

I used paper sheet ‘Birthday’ as background and the beautiful lady from ‘Emphemera’ 12 x 12

little lady was a cut out from the 6 x 6 paper back

I’ve always loved the combination of these colours and the beautiful ‘Celebration’ paper is probably my favourite in the stash.

Cut to fit and complemented with a metal frame from Prima and some blooms, the new frame in altered art was finished.

Suitable to this frame I made two wooden handpainted candle holds with her favourite flowers

and a irish crochet doily.

Thanks for your visit!

Have a beautiful time!

Goodmorning lovely Maja Fans,

Are you enjoying the spring weather…here in The Netherlands we had some pretty sunny days but that is over now, sadly but hopefully soon we can enjoy the sun again. For today I have a layout to share. Two weeks ago my computer died on me and I could not post my project {sorry for that} but now my husband fixed that and I can edit my work again yeah. This layout is made with two collections “Celebration” & “Denim and Friends” and Camilla her lovely daughter Freja <3 is on the picture.

On the beackground of my layout I added the pretty waterdrops stamp by Gabrielle Pollacco {still one of my favorite stamps sets ever} but before I added that stamp I used two other stamps to one crackle and one script stamp. After prepairing my background I treated my chipboard pieces with several acrylic paints layered on top of each other to get a worndown look.

After I treated the chipboards I added my flower clusters. Then I took my photograph and layered it on two sheets of the 6×6 paper pads then I placed it on top of the chipboard frame to get more dimension.  At the end I took out a letter sticker sheet from webster pages and made the word bliss and in that corner I placed a metal piece.

At the end I used some of my white spray and gesso to lighten up my flowers and papers…but I also added some art stones and some sea shells. I think that is it on how I created this layout. I had a lot of fun also because we have a son and I really enjoy making layouts with girls being the focal point.

Maja Design papers used: Celebration: Glamour bs & Champagne bs, Denim & Friends: Streetwear bs.

    

Thank you very much for your visit, I hope I have inspired you to go and create something beautiful with your Maja papers. Have a wonderful & sunny day!

Love xoxo

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

You know I love the Denim & Friends collection as it’s just perfect for all masculine projects! But if you think it’s JUST a masculine collection, I hope to prove you wrong 😉

Yes, a totally girly stuff! Soft and romantic frame with three of my nieces in the photo.

First I assembled a chipboard shadowbox frame and then covered it with Maja papers, inside and outside, inking and distressing all the pieces. For the front coevr I chose to colour with mists as it is too intricate to cover it with papers.

Then I placed a chipboard clockface in the bacgkround, added the photo and surrounded it with embellishments – hand-cut tags, a tiny banner with an opalescent acrylic heart:

…mulberry flowers, resin heart and bird, a butterfly flair button:

…a delicate twig winding around the frame side:

The title is a chipboard piece too:

I also added a flower cluster on the outer side, addding guipure lace:

I’ll add some journaling on the back, which is for now covered with papers:

 

 

 

And here’s my list of supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: shadowbox frame, sentiment: Scrapiniec; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts, Prima; resin embellishments: Prima, button: Lemoncraft; mists: Tattered Angels, golden metallic paint: Martha Stewart.

 

So what do you think of such version of a masculine collection? 🙂 I really like the way it turned out and how the patterns compliment the photo.

And that’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later!
