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 .

You’re invited

Welcome Maja friends!

Valentine’s day is just around the corner,

the right time for me to make some cards and tags for good friends, because it’s not only the day for romantics and those in love,
also to remember on beautiful and happy moments with loving people.

As I saw our newest paper collection ‘Celebrate’ I was inspired from the dancing people from the sheet ‘Charleston’, they radiate so much joy and love of life, right?!

I thought on old film classics, on the 20s and created two tags in vintage style. I prefer not so much colors, only brown,white and black because the motifs are very meaningful.

used Maja Design papers

 

some details

Firstly I used an embossing folder ‘Music notes’ and film stripe was made with a die cut,

at one point it was torn sideways to insert a text stripe.

Have you seen the lower margins on all the paper sheets, they are very suitable as addition. I used ‘You’re invited’.

Two happy dancing people were cut out, some flowers, pearls and a black feather, not more and the funny little tag was ready.

…. and a second inspiration with ‘You’re invited bs’ as background paper

… and suitable to this tags a romantic card in vintage style

used Maja Design papers

 

some details

 


Many thanks for your visit, I hope it was a little inspiration for you

to try out and play with our newest collection papers.

Have a wonderful crafty time!

Goodmorning Maja Fans,

Are you loving the new collection as much as I do? What I love about it, is that it has some black/grey sheets in it. Today I would like to show you four mixed media tags I made with the black/grey & pink papers. I also used the pictures in the collection, something I don’t do very often & some older Prima Marketing flowers that I had in my stash for some time now and some of 49 and Market. And of course some Dusty Attic chipboards…..

The size of the tags are 10 cm by 15 cm and I cut the patterned at 4 cm and the other part 6 cm. Then I stamped on there with two different background stamps by Creative Embellishments after that I sprayed with two Lindy’s sprays to soften the black a little then I added a stencil and some cheese cloth. I was also inspired by our mood board for this and next month hope you are to and play along.

Maja Design papers used: Celebration 6×6 paper pad.

Thank you so much for your visit I sure hope I have inspired you to play with your amazing Maja Design papers you have in you stash or even order new products I have used here. We are still giving away the new collection on our Facebook page so please do enter to win the new collection.

Have a lovely day!4

Hello dear friends! Its Evgenia Petzer with you today and I will show you the mini album that I made for a girl. Its based on the tags (dies) that I cut from the very strong cardboard and then decorated.

Here is the cover ( I have used lots of lace, pearls, chipboard in my album).

Some time ago I have shown the baby box here on the blog and to fits this album perfectly.maja_mini_girl_in_a_box maja_mini_girl_total_look

In some frames where the photos will be placed, for now I put the photo of my little one- just to show how it will look altogether (I have only boys, so this baby album will be for some other little princess).

some close ups:

For the tags themselves I used the die cut by Tim Holtz (sizzix) and lots of leftovers from my favourite Maja Papers (different collections), all the decoration is mainly from the Vintage Baby paper pad papers and I also used these 2 sheets for the fussy cutting.

 and 

Have a lovely sunny day,

Joy and Peace Card by Irene Tan 1

Hello Maja Design fans!It’s Irene here today and it’s time for me to share a project for this Christmas. The project for today is a tag/card which I’ve created using Maja Design “A Gift For You” collection.  This is a bigger than normal tag which is perfect as a card for a friend on this Christmas. The recipient can hang it onto their Christmas tree as a home decor.

I love the gorgeous vintage colors in this collection. I’ve chosen green, red and grey colors to create the layering for this card.

Here are more close-ups.

To create some intricate details on it, I’ve hand stitched on this card.
