Hello our blog fans. Today I would like to present a very layered, masculine cards :) When I saw the paper from the “Vintage Autumn Basics”  collection I knew what to create. I love the colours, the style and  all small details to cut out. I just felt in love …

Masculine CardsI started to create the cards by choosing image and chipboards. Maja Design paper has a lot of small elements to cut out and it helps a lot during your creative process. From only one collection you can create many different products. I love to add layers, chipboards and flowers.

Card by Padoriaa

Papers from the collection called “Vintage Romance” fits perfectly to my project.  I pick few papers and started to prepare the composition. Next was to added some flowers, metal embellishments and chipboard. Cut out elements from the paper and use them like the central point of my card.

Flowers together with ribbon and laces. Many tiny elements together.

Vintage stamp with perfect sentence.  Here I used different shades of ink to stamp. It look really nice instead of using a black ink.

My cards are full of  layers and elements but I always try to make them light. It’s not easy, it takes time  but I love the final result.

In the end I applied white gesso and splash it with white and gold paint.

Hi everyone. Sadly this is my last post for Maja Design.
I’m pregnant with baby #2 and my mind and body aren’t cooperating the way that I would like, so I’m taking a break from some of my scrapbooking commitments to try to get a little more rest.
For my last layout I have used the Nyhavn Collection to create a vintage style layout.

I used three papers from the Nyhavn collection to layer together and create my background. These papers were, The Sunny Side, A Dockside in Bloom & Kings Square.

I added white texture paste through a floral and diamond stencils.

I coloured my chipboard with Distress Ink in Hickory Smoke to match the colour of the King’s Square paper. Then I embellished with yellow, peach and grey flowers to compliment the papers.

Hello Maja Followers

Today I stop by the Maja Design blog, becuse I have a new project made in lovely  Maja paper. A simple box to a young woman who is to be confirmed.

For this box I have used sheets from a Maja Design collection  called for Ska Vi Ta En Fika 

The sheets I have used are :
Kladdkaka, Kärleksmums, Söders Höjder and Mandelkaka.


I placed the pattern sheets directly on the box and put them on with double sided tape. The punch that I’ve used is from Martha Stewart and called Eyelet Lace. 

I often create boxes that I use metal feet in silver, and yes it is on this box too. At the bottom edge, I glue on a silver chain, which runs all the way around the box. On the lid I have used wood from Wychinka, these I have embossed with white embossing powder from Ranger. The three half pearls that you find on the side of the box are made with Nuvo Crystal pearls, the colors I have used are Oyster Gray, Ivory Seashell and Wisteria.

On the back of the box are the details about the same as on the other sides, the exception is that I have not pearls on the side and the wood from Wychinka are smaller than those at the front.

On top of the box you will find the big details. 
What I ‘ve done is I ‘ve spent a round box and covered the lid and the bottom with patterned sheets and silver chain with diamonds. These I have glue little bit on the top of each other.

At the center of the two circles I have placed a lot of flowers in white and alot in various purple tones. Under the flowers I have used some cheese cloth for an extra effect. This can be done on any type of project you create, if you dont whant to use leaves under the flowers, use some cheese cloth instead. 
The flowers are from Wild Orchids.

On one of the circles, you can see the name Maren. Maren is the girl this box is made too.

The letters I have used are from Prima and I made them brighter with Wink of Stella Bruch White.

If you Opens the box, I’m sure Maren can fit all the jewelry she gon on her special day <3


The Secrets in the Jewelry Box

Hello Everyone :-)

Today it is a bit special day here in Norway, it is Liberation Day and about nine days, it is May 17th, Norway’s National Day. Then it is 202 years since Norway got its own constitution and we were a separate nation after several years in the union with Sweden and Denmark. Today, Norway is one of the world’s best and most beautiful country and stay in, we have been awarded several years in a row that we have the world’s most beautiful coastline. But on May 8th the tradition that we lifts the Norwegian flag to the top.

But today is also my day to inspire you with my new project made for Maja Design. The history of this project is not 202 years old, but it started a few years back when I was at flea market.

You know that I love flea market, it is because I can find the most amazing things. Things I can change, refine and give a whole new life to and this visit was not a disappointing.

In between all the old glass and jars, stood one old jewelery box in brown mahogany. The jewelery box consisted of one drawer, one lid that could be raised, with one mirror and one small room where one could hide their secret treasures in. For a long time the box stood in one closet, until a few days ago when it got a new life with the new collection to Maja Design, Vintage Romance. A perfect gift for a young bride or to a young woman who soon stand as a confirmand.

On the box, I have chosen me out some beautiful sheets from the new collection. Vintage Romance consists of several great sheets in gorgeous colors and for this project I’ve used these sheets:

Champagne, Marriage Proposal and Forget Me Not.


In my project I have chosen to decorate all parts of the box with pattern sheets. I’ve tried to create a harmony tune over the box, by using light brown sheet and a blue sheet with strong contrasts to the bright.

I have inked all the edges with Distress Ink Walnut Stain, I did that after I had attached the various parts on the box. Pattern sheets are attached with double sided tape and glue.

When I was finished with the sheets, I attached four silver feet on the bottom of the box, before I glue on the pearl string.

On the top of the lid I have attached some flowers in various blue tones, a button, glass bottles and metal leaf.

The flowers I have used are from Wild Orchids and Papirdesign. The leaves I used was in bronze, until I used one Embossing Powder from Stampenduos and color called Shabby White. The Button I’ve created a white bow and placed a half pearl on the top.

In the four different glass bottles are filled with pearl string, pearls, straws and the same embossing powder that is on the leaves.

On the back and the sides, are the same detail as on the front. I have used the same pattern sheets and pearls.

If you open up the lid, you will see whats inside.

On the inside of the lid I have attached a mirror in the middle, with string of pearls around. I’ve also attached some pearls in the corners.

In the jewelry box I have added my own jewelry and earrings.

With the tray below, you have plenty of space to hide all your treasures.

Now you have seen the Jewelry Box with all the secrets.

Maby next time you are at the flea market, you can keep your eyes open, so maybe you will find some treasure for yourself you can change.
