Hello!

I was inspired to create a new springtime layout in a romantic vintage style.

I love the soft colours in spring, nature awakens from its winter sleep, the sun becomes more beautiful from day to day, the best time to spend more time outdoors again.

I also remember our childhood days when there were no computers to sit in front of for hours.

I thought of blossoming cherry trees when the petals fell like snow.

As background I used the backside of the 4th of May.

Then I tored the 10th of May into several stripes and stuck them on top of each other.

 

some close up’s

I found the idea of using these calendar pages as layers under the photo very suitable and exciting.

 

 

 

 As in every collection there is also a page to cut out with different tags.

 As a special highlight I added the cut out little girl in the lower right corner

 and created a deep effect with foam pads.

Thanks for your visit!

Happy sunday!

Kerstin

The good life

Hi everyone! How are you? Here in Norway the Spring has come. It is so lovely to hear the birds singing and the bumblebee sum. So I was inspired to make a Spring card for todays post. Hope you like it.

And what fit better than to use the lovely Vintage Spring Basics Collection! They are perfect for any Spring card.

I have coloured some cute Magnolia stamps in the same colours as the papers. I use Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers for my colouring.

The sentiment is also from Magnolia and the Sumbeam Collection.

The hedgehogs are sitting on tree logs. And you can make them moving 🙂

By pulling the tag on the right side here.

Here a better view on the layers and the logs.

A close up.

And here they are pushed in to the middel of the card again. I was inspired by the super talented Jiwon Jung to make this.

The fence is made with a Magnolia die and Maja papers, so that it stands out a bit. That way it is easier to move the hedgehogs. I have added some Stickles – Star Dust to the image, butterflies and small flowers.

Another closeup.

The metal birds are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Here is a video of the card:

And the list of papers used:

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

Hugs from,

When the sun is shining

Welcome creative friends!

Kerstin is back with a new springtime layout.

After a very long cold period, it finally gets warmer and the daffodils in my garden start to bloom. I love this time, finally, more sun shines again and gives hope for new life. There is a lot to do in the garden right now, but you should also let all five go straight and just enjoy this short time.

This time I used a monochrome paper as background, I love this neutral papers because

you will have so many opportunities to create a selfmade mixed media background.

I used a brick stencil with white gesso, old music paper sheets, stamps, leftovers from craft paper,

Glimmer Mist Spray (Sunflower) from Tattered Angels, Distress Ink Stain from Ranger,

paper frames from La Blanche and wonderful flowers from 49 and Market.

some details

I hope you like this little spring layout inspiration

with monochrome paper from the ‘Shades of Celebration’ collection,

I will return on 18th of April with a

Tutorial 🙂

Happy crafting!

Where are the bunnies hidden?!

Three rabbits hid on this spring project, have you already discovered her?

Maybe there are four 😉 ??

I used our wonderful latest ‘Celebration’ collection for this romantic vintage layout.

 

I love the delicate colours on this sheets, absolutely right for me to create a springtime layout

with a lot of things which make this season so beautiful.

I glued this on a canvas und used it as mural for my springtime home decoration.
