Hi dear Maja fans! Today I want to show you how I made these two cupcakes. The lovely papers used are from the Vintage Romance collection.

Vintage-Romance-P

Ok, let’s start with showing how it is made!

1

Here is all you need for your cupcake: Dies from Magnolia, a Styrofoam ball, two Maja papers measuring 30,5 x 4, 5 cm, two circles cut out from hard cardboard (1 ¾ “), a paper measuring 13 x 13 cm, laces and ribbons, metal embellishments and of course your favourite Tilda.

2

Find the middle of the paper measuring 13 x 13 cm.

3

Put the circle in the middle and draw around it.

4

Then cut the paper like you see in the photo. Then score around the circle.

5

 

6

Fasten the circles on both sides of the paper.

7

Put the ball inside and fasten it with glue, also fasten the sides of the papers on the ball. Like you see here.

8

Cut off the longest papers. I cut them down to 4 cm.

9

Make a cut for the tag. Remember to make it as deep as you can.

10

Then you can easily place your tag inside.

11

Here are the two papers which I have folded on each cm. I will now glue it on.

12

Here is the tag.

13

I use a needle and thread and sew the thread up and down on the lace, so that it curles up nicely.

14

Then I fasten it to the cupcake. It looks like frosting :)

15

For the flowers, I cut them in half.

16

Then spray them with water to get them curled up.

17

I curl them up, and leave them to dry.

18

Then glue them on to the ball.

20

Cut more flowers in half and curl them a little with the tools.

19

Make a lovely doily for the cupcake to stand on.

21

Continue with more layers and end it with some more flowers.

Here is some pictures of the finished cupcakes. Doesn’t they look yummy!?

The beautiful Maja papers are just wonderful to work with, and gives the cupcakes the perfect romantic, vintage look. The cupcakes were also made for Magnolia’s DooHickey vol 14. Thank you so much for visiting the blog today!

With love from,

Camilla

A very good morning to you, dear Visitors to the Maja Design blog :)

The summer is coming to an end, but we shouldn’t let our spirits go down! Today I have two birthday cards to share, and their common element is the blue palette and a motif connected with flying high above :)

The first one features an angel wing in the flower cluster:

I layered papers from the Vintage Frost collection, placed the sentiment stamp with a button in the centre and surrounded it with flowers and leaves. I also added some pearl brads and liquid pearls.

The central motif of the second card is an air balloon surrounded by flowers:

I used scraps of the Vintage Romance papers to make a shabby patchwork background, placed the chipboard layered balloon upon it and decorated it with mini roses and crystal flourishes.

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Other:

button: Lemoncraft; chipboard: Scrapiniec; flowers: Prima, my stash; flourishes: Prima; mold: Prosvet; die: my stash

 

So, what do you think about my cards? I really like the way they turned out :) See you soon!

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout with the Vintage Romance. I chose a photo I’ve taken during my trip in Prague of the special statue designed by Eva Blahová: the dress is a knitting.

As usual, I primed the background with clear gesso. Then I added a design with a stamp. I embossed the stamp image with a sticky powder to adhere some gold foil.

I added a second design with a stencil and clear crackle paste. I let dry naturally to allow the crackle to appear.

While the crackle paste was drying I die cut some leaves in a watercolor paper. I colored them with some Twinkling H2O and embossed them.

I cut some papers to add under the photo and I glued all the embellishments: flowers, leaves, and some doily’s scraps.

When done, I colored the background with bright colors to remind the photo.

I finished the layout with mica flakes and micro beads.

Hello, I'm Pascale B. from France. Since I began to scrap, flowers are part of my layouts, and I gradually started to use mixed media as well. I don’t know how to define my style, perhaps something like free vintage shabby style could be a good definition. Visit me at www.pbhobby.blogspot.com

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout. I used both the Enjoying Outdoors and the Vintage Romance collections. I chose a photo of my grandfather and his brother.

I primed the background with clear gesso. Then I added a design with a doily stencil and white gesso. When dry, I added a second design with another stencil and a metallic acrylic paint.

Then I cut the background into four pieces and glued them on another paper.

I cut a few papers from the 6×6 paper pack from both collections to add under the photo. I die cut some leaves in a watercolor paper and colored them with Glimmer Glam and acrylic paint.

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the Sofiero paper collection. I chose a photo of my family: my grandmother, my father, my aunt and unfortunately I’m not sure who the other two are.

Family by Pascale B.

I primed the background with clear gesso. While it was drying, I cut a few papers from the Vintage Romance 6×6 pad that I glued on the background. Then I added a thin layer of white gesso.

Family by Pascale B.

I added a design with a stencil and different pastes: clear crackle, white crackle, and white stone. When dry, I added some color with Iris Potion Sparks paint that I watered down.

Family by Pascale B.

I die-cut some leaves in a watercolor paper. I colored the vine with Raven Sparks and the leaves with Twinkling H2Os. Then I covered them with the Antique Brillance Amethyst Magic. I added some wax on the background too to add a vintage look.

Family by Pascale B.

I colored some flowers with a spray made of Primary Element and water. Before gluing all the embellishments, I added some random stamping with an Archival ink and with the Raven Sparks. I added a little bird house that I colored with the wax too.

To finish the layout I added some micro beads.
