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

May is traditionally the month of First Communions in Poland, so I’m making a lot of cards and other gifts these days. And today I have an exploding bozx to share that I made, as money is still quite a popular gift, and there’s no more elegant way of giving money than an exploding box :)

As you can see, I used the beautiful Sofiero collection – its delicate patterns and subtle colour palette are simply perfect for the occasion. I decorated the box lid with flowers in matching colours:

After opening, the box reveals the contents:

I decorated on of the sides with a stamped girl image that I hand-coloured with Distress inks, and a chipboard cross with the flower cluster – I die-cut hte  vine leaves from the green paper of the Monochrome pad – I just love this addition!

There’s also a space for writing in wishes, and a dimensional chipboard chalice, decorated with another flower cluster:

…and the band for sliding in a roll of banknotes 😉

I really like the way the papers go with flowers and embellishments, giving a soft and delicate look. Now I only need a box for a boy! :)

 

Here’s what I used:

Other: chipboard: Scrapiniec, Anemone; stamps: Whiff of Joy, Lemonade; dies: Magnolia, Spellbinders; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; Distress inks, glitter: Ranger;  wax string, bling, washi tape: my stash.

And what is your idea for the First Communion gift?

See you soon!

Layout

Hello Maja fans!!!

It’s Mary here with you today sharing my latest layout featuring the new and my beloved ”Sofiero” collection.

A soft layout that was inspired by the beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

close up 1

I used for my background the ”The Elegant Wine House” paper and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”Ephemera” using the back side and the ”Enjoying the fragrance” paper using both sides.

close up 2

I primed my background with white gesso and when it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I colored my page using Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays ”Cotton Candy Pink” and ”Merci Beaucoup Mint”.

I heat embossed the title and the pieces from the ”Viney Page Frame” chipboard with ”Cafe au Lait” Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing powder. The chipboards I used are 2crafty the flair is Cuts2luv and all the flowers are Prima Marketing.

To finish, I added some art stones and made some splatters with FW white ink.

I'm Keren Tamir a self taught scrapbooker, mixed media artist and designer. Since I was a child, I always loved art. I used to doodle on my notebooks and on anything I could get my hands on. ​ Fourteen years ago I discovered scrapbooking and fell in love with it. One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. Scrapbooking opened a creative door to something that I had longtime forgotten I'd loved. It gave me peace of heart and mind. visit my blog for more inspiration: https://kerentamir.blogspot.ca

Goodmorning lovelies,

Spring is in the air and I love it….it’s my favorite time in the year because now summer is really nearby. I really enjoyed the latest mood board from Maja Design did you already enter the challenge? If not I will have some inspiration for you using the beautiful mood board. It has beautiful greens and blues in it and such a romantic vibe….that I really enjoyed creating this layout as I do with all of my Maja Design projects.

I cut the The magnificent Flowerstreet bs sheet in half and placed it on top of the 6th of March bs sheet! Then I added some sprays, stamps and paste on my layout. All the chipboard pieces are by Dusty Attic and I gessod them all, and some of them I embossed and others I added some rust past & mini prills on.

The flowers I used are by several manufacturers. I really loved the text on the mood board that’s why I added it on my work in papers strips that I just printed out on my computer. I won a wonderful prize last month at a challenge site with all 13 Arts products and the hugh glass circle I added on top of the “happiness” disk is one of them.
