Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer with you today. I am sharing another gift envelope in the provence style, I absolutely love this palette and wish to be in the lavender fields once myself.

In this envelope you can present either the gift card or the one to some lovely person. I have used Wild Orchid flowers, some Russian die cuts and Russian chipboard in it.

Some lace, and kraft accents look gorgeous in this mixture

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 😉 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.

I have some special feelings for Ska vi ta en Fika collection, I just love those purple/lavender shades and can play with it for long time.konv1_fika_majadesign_petzerkonv2and some close ups:konv_det1 konv_det2 lots of different flowers, laces and pearlskonv_det3The envelopes are “closed” with this die cut lacekonv_det4Once again, I have used Ska vi ta en Fika:

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.

Autumn_detail1_PB

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, …

Autumn_detail6_PB

… a few strip of papers, flowers, leaves, and glitters and micro beads as a finishing touch.

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
