Hi everyone! I hope you all are fine. I am enjoying working with the Vintage Autumn Basics collection. The papers are just so beautiful! I will show you which ones I used at the end of the post.

But first some photos of my tag. It is not always necessary to give a whole card, sometimes a tag can be just as nice to give someone. I have used the tag die from Sizzix for the main tag.

All the other dies I have used are from Magnolia. The image is from Magnolia’s Class Trip Collection 2018. And I have coloured her in matching colours to the lovely papers.

Here comes some close ups of the details on the tag. I have used Distress ink for my colouring.

I have put some White Gesso on to the papers here and there.

Between the layers on the camera I have put som 3D foam. And some Maja papers together with the Raven Bazzill. I think it worked out nicely.

Here is the list of papers used:

Thank you so much to visit the Maja Design blog today!

With love,

Christmas Greetings

Hello Sweet Maja fans.

When summer is at it’s end I always get Christmas jitters.

Although every season and holiday has it’s own charm, I really love Christmas.

Me and my kids love to snuggle up with a warm blanket on the couch, and watch every Christmas-movie we can find.

With Christmas jitters comes Christmas crafting.  So today I bring you this Christmas tag made with leftovers from the Vintage Frost Basic Collection.

I hate throwing away designpapers I love , so i safe them for smaller projects like this.

 

For the bottom of the base tag I used the  Martha Stewart  doily punch. one of my all time favorite edgepunches.

On top of that I laid a die cut made with Romantic Rectangles nestabilities  by Spellbinders.

 

Than I started stacking papers till I like it and stick them together with foamtape.

I always keep some space between the edges of my papers so I can tuck some embellishments or or small papers between the layers.

To finish it an eyelet in the top with a piece o flace thru it so it can hang .

This label will sure be a part of my Christmas decorations. I love how it turned out.

The Snow flake die I used is from the winter trails collection by  Studio Light.

Thank you very much for visiting make sure you come back for more wonderful projects made by the other Maja girls to inspire you.

Hi everyone! Here I am with a cute little tag I made with the gorgeous Coffee in the Arbour collection! I just love the beautiful colours, and for this one I have combined the soft purple with the soft green colours. Hope you like it!

The image from Magnolia is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers on water colour paper called The Langton. I use synthetic brushes, mostly size 0 and 000.  I have placed some Liquid pearls in her hair. The stamp is masked together with a sentiment stamp from the same collection (Upgrade Le Fleur).

The “Join me for a Coffee?” is cut out from the sheet called “Delicious Moments”.

The beautiful flowers are from Petaloo and Wild Orchid Crafts. I think they fit the papers so well.

Here a close up. The big rose is from WOC. I have placed some Sisal grass under the flowers. All the paper edges are inked with Walnut Stain, and the papers are sewed together on a sewing machine.

I have cut out the “gratulerer” text from Maja papers. The die is from Papirdesign, and means congratulation.

This tag was also published in the magazine Ett Trykk in the August issue.

I hope you are having a lovely Autumn. Maybe you find some time crafting?!

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja blog!

With love

 

Find yourself and be that

Hello sweet Maja fans

Here I am again and this time I bring you a tag/label inspired by the moodboard of this month.

I am so in love with the colors , freshness and theme of this one I had to create another project using it.

I really really love my Maja papers and so safe every little snippet, call me crazy but I just do . I hate trowing them a way.

All that saving gives me a lot of leftovers, so I set myself a challenge to every time I create something I must create something else with the leftovers.

So I made this tag with the snippets I had left from the layout I made for the moodboard challenge.

I also used the little chipboard bricks from the wall thing ( sorry have no idea how to call it) I used on my layout to make a new wall.

I found this inspiring  quote /saying on a sheet of word stickers from  7 dots studio . I can relate to it so now my label got a nice spot in my craftroom where I can see it often.

Hope you like my  label/tag and maybe I even gave you some more inspiration to join us at the moodboard challenge. Hope to see you there.

The chippies I used are from scrappiniec, the flower from prima , lace and ribbon from my stash, doily is a die from studiolight .

I used left overs from Vintage spring basics 4th of april 10th of march and Sofiero Princess Margareta’s garden.

Thank you very much for visiting,  please come back tomorrow to see another creation of one of the Maja Girls.

Count your blessings

Hello Maja freinds,

My turn again t make a blogpost and bring you something to inspire you .

This time I made you a dangletag. I came across this I dea on pinterest and just fell in love with it.

I had to make one.

 

For this project I used the 15×15 paperpad from the Celebration collection ,I love the pretty faces of the ladies they really need a nice frame.

The frame I used is from Prima marketing and did some gilding on it with gilding flakes from Nuvo .

I used two colors  and rubbed some walnutstain distress ink over it to give it a vintage feel.

The flowers are from Prima marketing and wild orchid.

I cut an extra piece  at the same width as the tag  decorated it and hung it underneath with some jumprings.

Used some very nice chippies from crapininiec  and added some pearls on it.

I really loved making this tag hope I inspired you with it to make your own .
