Hello Sweet Maja fans.

When summer is at it’s end I always get Christmas jitters.

Although every season and holiday has it’s own charm, I really love Christmas.

Me and my kids love to snuggle up with a warm blanket on the couch, and watch every Christmas-movie we can find.

With Christmas jitters comes Christmas crafting.  So today I bring you this Christmas tag made with leftovers from the Vintage Frost Basic Collection.

I hate throwing away designpapers I love , so i safe them for smaller projects like this.

 

For the bottom of the base tag I used the  Martha Stewart  doily punch. one of my all time favorite edgepunches.

On top of that I laid a die cut made with Romantic Rectangles nestabilities  by Spellbinders.

 

Than I started stacking papers till I like it and stick them together with foamtape.

I always keep some space between the edges of my papers so I can tuck some embellishments or or small papers between the layers.

To finish it an eyelet in the top with a piece o flace thru it so it can hang .

This label will sure be a part of my Christmas decorations. I love how it turned out.

The Snow flake die I used is from the winter trails collection by  Studio Light.

Thank you very much for visiting make sure you come back for more wonderful projects made by the other Maja girls to inspire you.

Welcome Maja friends!

Today I want to share with you another possibilitie, what you can do with the beautiful papers from Maja Design.

It’s a one sheet minialbum, that means for the basic you only need one background paper in 12 x 12″.

I chose from the Vintage Summer basics collection ”1936”, both colours are very suitable to my theme

 blue, for the sea and brown, for a memoryin vintage style.

As addition some sheets from the Summertime collection.

I used some photo’s from our sheltie, a beautiful memory on last summer and really he is an aquaholic, even like me 🙂


on the right side you can see a ATC frame and some mini wooden shapes from Calico Craft Parts, a beautiful addition

where I used white crackle paint from DecoArt for an altered effect

other products:

cutting dies – Memory Box, Kaisercraft

Distress ink Vintage photo – Ranger

maritim clear stamps from different companies

Thanks for your visit!

Have a beautiful summertime my friends!

Hello everyone!

Kerstin is back with a vintage layout. I used a very old photo from my ancestors, a beautiful memory for our family. 

 

The latest amazing Maja Design Collection ‘Celebrate’ http://majadesign.nu/products/celebration/
was very suitable to my photo to this very special day so many years ago.

 

 It’s always a good idea to create with frames on scrapbooking layout.

I added a printed chipboard frame on the lower right side with a very wise saying in it.

The second frame around the photo was made with cutting dies and old crafty paper in weathered look.

 some details
fussy cutting flowers from paper sheet ‘You’re invited’ and flowers with
Sizzix Thinlits die ‘Small tattered flowers’ from the papper sheet ‘Glamour bs’
a frame made with craft paper, that’s leftovers from a cutting die
a printed chipboard frame with a wise saying on transparent foil from Scrap FX
Thanks for your visit!
Happy crafting!

The gift of friendship.

Hello sweet Maja fans..

Today it’s my turn again to give you some inspiration.

This time I bring you a card made with  the gorgeous papers of the vintage summer basics papers.

I love this collection , it’s certainly one of my favorite.

We had some very nice weather the last few days and everything in nature just exploded,  flowers everywhere and the air is filled with their sweet scent.

that inspired me to make this card bursting with and from flowers.

I used flowers from Wild orchid crafts , pins ,ribbon and brad are from my private stash.

Thank you very much for your visit, hope to see you again next time.

Hello friends!

Soon is Mother’s Day and I want to give a little attention to my mother. I created a mixed media frame in a delicate shabby chic look.

 

I used a simply frame as basic. Firstly I made some ornaments with the help of moulds and air drying modeling clay.

These were glued to the frame with heavy gel medium, I added some metallic sticker too.

Then I painted everything over with Chalky Finish ‘Vintage’ paint from DecoArt.

Now put some heavy white gesso over the embellishments to bring out the texture and details on the frame.

some details

I used paper sheet ‘Birthday’ as background and the beautiful lady from ‘Emphemera’ 12 x 12

little lady was a cut out from the 6 x 6 paper back

I’ve always loved the combination of these colours and the beautiful ‘Celebration’ paper is probably my favourite in the stash.

Cut to fit and complemented with a metal frame from Prima and some blooms, the new frame in altered art was finished.

Suitable to this frame I made two wooden handpainted candle holds with her favourite flowers

and a irish crochet doily.

Thanks for your visit!

Have a beautiful time!
