Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today :)

I don’t know about your places, but in Poland autumn more often than not is cool, rainy and windy (although we do have a term “golden Polish autumn”, meaning the warm time with all those fabulous colours!), with temperatures discouragin any outdoor activity ūüėČ So it’s the best time to curl up under a soft blanket, grab a cup of raspberry tea and indulge oneself in reading! And therefor for my today’s post I’m sharing two bookmarks I made for my sweet cousin and her husband :)

My cousin likes greens and purples, so I chose these colours from the Ska Vi Ta En Fika? collection for her bookmark and added golden accents:

I embossed the stamped Bible quotation with golden ep and then made a watercolour background using the embossing resist technique. I also tied some charms at the top:

The back side of the bookmark features gorgeous purple roses background, and my cousin’s initial and a stamped “I’m reading here” sentiment :)

The bookmark for her husband is made exactly in the same way, though I used a different stamp and colour palette, based on the Denim & Friends collection (love!). I also used decorative signature strips as borders:

And the back side:

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Prima Marketing, Lemonade, Art Parts; charms: Marianne Design, Rayher; dies: Crealies; inks: Ranger.

 

I do hope the bookmarks will make the reading even more pleasant for my family :) What do you think?

See you later!

Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer here with you today and I wanted to share with you two beautiful envelopes in which you can gift either money or a gift card. Our-days these type or presents seem to be more appropriate in some occasions. But its always nice to present something beautifully.

Good morning, Maja Design friends, welcome to the blog today :)

With November coming to an end, I think it’s time to think of Christmas presents, especially if you intend making them yourselves. And so today I have a girly diary to share.

mddor

As the little lady, who will be writing her secrets in this notebook, likes purples, I chose to work with the Ska Vi Ta En Fika? collection with a bit of the Vintage Spring Basics set, which offered both cold and warm shades of purple, paired with browns and greens too. And so I adapted the same palette for the diary. I layered some papers on the front cover:

mddor2

…added a ribbon bow and a butterfly charm on the wire:

mddor1

…and decorated the front with a stamped and hand-coloured image:

mddor3

On the inner cover, I added the girl’s monogram in a decorative heart on the background of the butterfly and plaid patterns:

mddor4

There’s also a bonus stamped image at the back of the diary:

mddor5

…and a little envelope to put in special secrets :)

mddor6

I hope the girl would like her secret diary :)

And here’s what I used to make it:

Papers: Ska Vi Ta En Fika?: Nybakat, Chaite, Mandelkaka, Lejas café; Vintage Spring Basics: 11th of April BS, 9th of April BS. Other: stamps: Magnolia, Basic Grey; ribbon, twine: Rayher, charm, plate: my stash.

Have you started making your Christmas gifts yet?

Hello Sweeties,

I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new set of cards featuring the¬†Ska vi ta en Fika¬†collection.

Autumn_PB

I kept the design simple. I just cut a background paper.

Then I die cut a doily, added a few strip of paper, as well as some sisal.

Autumn_detail2_PB

I also die cut some leaves in the Pratstund paper.

Autumn_detail4_PB

Then I added a few flowers and some mica flakes and micro beads.

Autumn_detail5_PB

I followed the same process for the second card. A background paper, a die-cut doily, …

Hello, I'm Pascale B. from France. Since I began to scrap, flowers are part of my layouts, and I gradually started to use mixed media as well. I don’t know how to define my style, perhaps something like free vintage shabby style could be a good definition. Visit me at www.pbhobby.blogspot.com

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a layout published in Histoires de Pages n¬į63, a french magazine.

Fleurs by Pascale B.

I started to apply a matte gel medium to protect the paper. Then I added a thin layer of white gesso and some orange Silks with a brayer.

I covered the chipboards with black gesso and some Rust Mica Powder, except one which I colored with a Twinkling H2O and the same Mica Powder. I colored the flowers with some Twinkling H2Os too.

I added some blue and green bisters to the background to remind the water reflection.

I used a 3D matte gel to glue all the embellishments.

I finished with some random stamping and splatters.
