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

I have recently had the pleasure of making a sweet birthday card for a sweet girl.

 

I used mostly Denim & Friends papers as they matched the colours from the photo most perfectly. I added just a touch of the Vintage Summer pink in the background:

I have die-cut the embellishments from the papers, such as the cute heart banners and the number flag:

I stamped the cute beart with a heart, coloured it and paper-pieced the heart using a scrap of the Vintage Romance heart-patterned paper. I then added a small letter “O” for the girl’s name:

I also added plaid ribbon and some mini flowers and cute white pom-poms as the finishing touch.

And I think the card symbolises the 9-year-old girls quite accurately: still cute, but not too much 😉 What do you think?

Here are my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Marianne Design, Craft Passion; stamp: ScrapBerry’s; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon: Rayher, pom-poms: my stash.

 

Before I bid you goodbye, I’d like to wish you a joyous Easter filled with the warmth of love and kindness 🙂

See you soon!

Hello Sweeties,

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Vintage Summer collection. I work with a photomontage I made.

La Dame de Brissac by Pascale B.

First, I primed the background with clear gesso. When done, I added some random stamping with different stamps and inks.

Next, I colored the background with two inks. When dry, I added a design with a stencil and white crackle paste that I let dry naturally to allow the cracks to appear.

When the paste was dried, I dry brushed the colored areas with white gesso to tone down the color. Next, I splattered some brown ink.

I cut a few papers to add under the photo before gluing all the embellishments.

Next, I added some mica flakes and microbeads.

Hello dear Maja fans ,

Today I bring you a dreamy layout  inspired by this months moodboard.

I love moodboards they are alway so inspiring , when I look at one the idea for a layout , card, minialbum or what ever will pop right into my mind.

For this layout i used the papers of two collections : vintage romance – Walk with me, for the base and Vintage Summer Basics -1922on top of it.

Besides that i used a lot of snippets that I placed underneath the picture.

 

The word Dream is a chippie from dusty attic and all the flowers from 49and market.

Thanks for visiting , hope I gave you some extra inspiration for the moodboard challenge.

Hi everyone! I am back with a shaker card today. I am making some videos on You Tube for Magnolia, and this is my final product. In the last video I show how to make a shaker card, and how I made this card. It is on the Magnolia channel today. I have used some gorgeous Maja papers for my project.

I think the flowers match the papers so well.

Hello our blog friends. Today I would like to show you my first calendar for 2018. This one will be use mostly at home, that’s why I could add a little bit more of volume. Here it is :
