Hello everyone!

Although it’s still spring, we are already having summer temperatures here

first strawberries in our garden are ripe.

It’s the most wonderful time in the garden, everything blooms and fragrance.

Do you know the wonderful sheet ‘Is always the best’ from the Summertime Collection?

Is one of my favourites, this paper is so beautiful, that you could put it in a picture frame right away to hang it on the wall.

I’m absolutely in love with the delicate designs of the papers,

because the motifs and colours reminds me on roses, strawberries, hikes across field and hallway, bicycle tours and much more.

some close up’s

 

Thanks for your visit!

Have a wonderful time!

Kerstin

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

Have you seen our May Moodboard? The palette is so beautiful that after creating my sample card I just couldn’t help making another ūüėČ And here’s my wedding card:

I used papers from the Summertime collection – this rose bouquets one is one of my most favourite Maja papers! Isn’t it just gorgeous? I chose it for my background and matted it with two other collection papers and arranged a scene of two birds nesting – to symbolise a new couple building their home together ūüôā

Inspired by the roses in the bacgkround, I added a flower cluster around the chipboard sign:

I tied a guipure lace bow to add some lightness to my bouquet:

The card turned out pretty dimensional – and I love that!

Of course bulky cards need a box, and I decorated one with hot embossing on the top:

 

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: chipboard: Scrapiniec; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; glitter: Ranger; art clay molds: Prosvet; art clay: Martha Stewart; lace: my stash.

 

I hope you will join us for the Moodboard challenge and share your projects using this gorgeous palette ūüôā

See you!

A bag full of Get Well wishes!

Hi everyone! I have a decorated paper bag to show you today. I have used red, gorgeous papers from Maja Design and the Summertime Collection. When I have planned to use the colour red, this is my favourite collection to use.

I have cut out different parts by using the Maja Papers.

I have also coloured some seambinding ribbons to match the papers. I have sprayed them with water mixed with Distress Ink, re-inkers (Aged Mahogany and Fired Brick).

The image is from Magnolia and the Get Well Collection. And I have added som Frantage and Liquid pearls around her.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I have added corrugated paper, a doily, lace and several layers of papers underneath the image.

Here is the list of papers used:

Thank you so much for visiting the blog today!

With love,

Love

Hello sweet Maja fans, today it’s my turn again to give you some inspiration

I’m so in love with the Maja papers , I find it so heartbreaking to throw the left overs¬† away so I always save almost every snippet I have left .

These snippets are great for smaller project like cards.

This one I made with left overs from my last layout that I made using the summertime collection.

 

 

Like my layouts I use foamtape for my cards as well to build layers and dimension.

For the leaves I used dies from my favorite things and cut them out of the celery/sage paper from the shade of sofiero monochromes

And again I used the cut out roses from  the smell the roses paper, and tucked some folded flat prima flowers behind the big white flower from wild orchid crafts.

Thank you for watching and I hope I gave you some inspiration.

Sweet

Hello  dear Maja fans.

Today it’s my turn again to inspire you and this time I have a tutorial of how I made this lay out for you.

For this one I used the beautiful papers of the summertime collection.

 

For the background I used the backside of Flowers every where. I high-lighted the area where want my to make my composition with some gesso

While the gesso is drying  I cut out some roses out of the smell the roses sheet, those I will tuck behind the picture and papers later.

 

When the gesso is dry¬† I made splatters with¬† Lindy’s flat fabio”s sidewalk chalk and queen of hearts red.

Than I added some random stamping when the splatters were dry.  To see what  the stamp and what color ink I like and want to use,

I did some test stamping at the place that will be covered with the papers. This way I can have a better look at what feels right for me.

I decided to use Pink petunia from versaMagic.

After choosing the papers I want behind my picture, cutting them in the right size I distress the edges with mt paperdistresser from Making Memories

I have this one for I think 10 years used it a lot and really love it. I tried other distressers  when the were introduced  but always went back to using this one.

For sticking the papers on to the papers I use  foamtape because it gives your layout some demension.

I always stick it in the middle so you can tuck flowers or other embellies behind it later on.

Because i own a lot of supplies I never used I gave myself the challenge to try to use some oldies on every project I make from this layout on..

This time I took these Prima flowers. I crunched them to these flowers and  tucked them with the roses .

I love the the way the look now so I’m sure I will use this more often in the future.

   

After sticking the papers and picture on to the background , I embellished  it with roses from Prima, badges from cuts2luv , pearls from the dollarstore.

The leaves are made using  Monochromes shade of Sofiero РCelery/Sage with dies from My favorite things and the swirly ones I think from Marianne Design.. and l tucked the roses I cut out earlier between the layers of the papers.

The edge with the little hearts is made with a punch from Martha Stewart. the word Sweet is a chippy from dusty attic that I colored with black embossing powder.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that it inspired you .
