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 .

Hi everyone! I am back with a tag this time. And of course with the gorgeous  new papers, and this time in more pinkish tones.

I have added white gesso and Frantage on the papers. The postmark stamps are from Stempelglede. The image is from Magnolia. The image is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers on the Langton paper.

I have cut out the text and the glasses with Maja papers.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I have added some frantage which I have melted, on the roses.

The sentiment on the tag is from Stempelglede.

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

Here are the papers used:

With love,

A New Years Tag

Hi there! I am back with a short post for you today. It is sooo busy this time of year, and I only had time to make a tag for you. I have used this beautiful papers from the Vintage Romance collection.

Vintage-Romance-P

The cute image is a new one from Magnolia, and she is called Happy 2017 Tilda. She is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers. And for the pink colour on her dress I have mixed together Victorian Velvet and Dusty Concord. For the darker parts I have used Hickory Smoke and Frayed Burlap.

I have decorated the whole tag with different laces, and then added some Maja papers. I have also used some small doilies and cheese cloth. The small flowers are punched out with a Small Retro Flower Punch. The postmark stamps are from Stempelglede. I have also added Fran-Tage on the the edges of the circle. Inside the flowers I have put some Liquid Pearls, and also on the scallops around the image.

Here is the paper used. Passion behind Tilda, and Walk with me for the flowers. This is a good way to use left overs 😉

I wish you a lovely time now before Christmas, and not a stressful one. Try to take some breaks and spoil yourselves!

Big hugs,

Camilla

Hello Maja fans!!!

Mary is up on the blog today and I have a Christmas tag to share with you. This is my first project made with the brand new ”I Wiss” collection and I have to say that I really loved it!!! These papers are simply amazing!!!

Close up 1

I used two papers for my background, the ”I wish those memories will last” and for the second layer the ”I wish for frosty mornings”. I applied modeling paste with a stencil to create some texture. Then, I made some splatters with ”Dark Chocolate Truffle” Lindy’s Stamp Gang mist and some random stamping with a script stamp and ”Coffee” Archival ink .

Close up 2

I heat embossed the title and the ”Corner Sweet Holly” chipboard, which I cut in two pieces, with ”Midnight Bronze” embossing powder and the little birds on it with ”King Midas Gold”. With the same powder I also embossed the ”Flower Chain” chippie. The snowflakes were embossed with two powders, first with ”Silver Moon Turquoise” and then with ”Golder Angel Wings”.

Close up 3

  I made a floral frame with a die and the ”I wish for peace and joy” paper and placed it on my cluster under my main flower. A little sisal, colored with the same mist I used before, completed my cluster. Some microbeads and glass glitter and my christmas tag was ready.

All the chipboards used were 2Crafty and the flowers were Prima Marketing.

Well, that’s all for today, my friends!

See you again in two weeks!

Hi there Maja fans! Today I want to show you a tag I made with some of the beautiful Vintage Spring Basics papers. They are just so soft, shabby and vintage looking, and I love it! I have used a 12″ cardboard and two Tim Holtz dies to make it. From the front you can hardly see the 3D-effect of the birdcage, so therefore I have taken some close up photos, so you could have a better idea of how it really looks like from all angles.023

For the bird cage I have actually cut out five cages from the die, and one more from the Maja Design Papers to have on the top. The edges are painted with Crackle Paint-Picket Fence, to get the shabby crackle look. On the papers I have also inked the edges with Walnut Stain, to get that old look.007

The sentiment on the bottom of the tag is cut out from the paper “Days to remember”. While the flowers are cut out from 1th of May, and the butterfly from 6th of May. I have inked the edges and painted over them with Crackle Paint-Clear Rock Candy.036

Under you get a more closer look of some of the details. 044

I just love the Vintage Spring Basics Collection!Vintage-Spring-Basics-P
