Hello scrappy friends!

What can be better as a big cup of hot chocolate in this cold season?!

I was inspired to create a vintage layout to my favourite theme – Chocolate –¬†

because ”She doesn’t ask silly questions, chocolate understands” ūüėČ

Suitable to this theme I used the paper collection ‘Fika’, here can you find some wonderful shades of brown papers

in combination with the right motifs as cups, muffins, teapots and much more

I used the papers ‘K√§rleksmums’, ‘Chokladmuffins’and ‘Kaffe tack! ‘

some close up’s

 

 

other used products:

Stencils: Stampers Anonymous, Chipboards: Dusty Attic

Stamps: 49and Market, Cutting dies,

laces, embellishments, Art Stones, straws, wooden letters

I hope I could inspire you to try some new themes.

What’s your favourite?

Thanks for your visit!

Where is the Sun?!

Welcome!

February has begun, it’s still winter time.

In my last layout were the beautiful pages of the winter to discover, a magical dreamy castle like from a storybook. 

The everyday life has got us again and unfortunately is it too often dark, gray and gloomy.

But if the sun manages to make its way through the thick clouds, a hint of spring is already noticeable.

Today I want to introduce you to a slightly different mixed media layout. 

It shows a city silhouette in background in shades of grey, because I wanted a grungy look.

I used a monochrome paper from the latest paper collection,¬†it’s a beautiful blue tone and always suitable for a winter mood.

I’m a big fan of this neutral monochrome paper collections, because I always like to go with my intuition, you have such a lot of possibilities to create your very own idea.

some details

some chipboards painted with rust colors

 a small cabochon in the middle of a gear chipboard

Together with a small photo ‘Love the Sun’,

 I use only a part from a die cut as shining sun.

 
¬†Don’t give up because this winter also comes to an end, hopefully soon!!

used Maja Design papers:

Other products used: Cutting dies, Dusty Attic Chipboards, Embossing powder, Stencils, Gesso (white, black + clear), Rust acrylic colours, Deco-Granules, Cabochon, Silver Metallic Paint 

Many thanks for your visit!

Have a beautiful time!

Hi everyone! Here I am back with a winter card for you, using the lovely papers from the latest collection called Chrismas Season. I have also used some of the Monochrome papers.

There are a few, but so beautiful blue papers in this collection.  I love using them!

The shape of the card is made with a GoKreate die. But many of the small dies are from Magnolia. Recently I bought myself a new toy, called Sizzix Sidekick. It is a small version of a Big shot. It is so handy to cut out all the small dies with it.

Both image, papers and flowers go in blue and white shades. And I have added several layers. The image from Magnolia is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers.

Aren’t these tassels the cutest?!

Here comes a list over the papers used:

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja blog today!

With love

Hello  Sweet Maja fans,

Lenet here and this time I bring you this Layout.

I didn’t use one specific collection this time , almoste every piece of of paper I used for this layout are leftovers I saved from other projects I made.

Except for the base /background , for this I used Monochromes shades of Celebration -Vintage Teal and  Shades of Sofiero White/Sand.

I always keep every snippet , it’s such a waste to throw away these lovely papers.

I always will find a use for it , I deal for making cards or like this a layered layout.

You can tuck them behind another piece and create the illusion of a larger piece that is peeking out a little from underneath it.

Here I have some close up for you.  The little frames come from the local dollarstore.

 

Flowers and leaves are from Prima and 47 and Market

The white sticks come from my own stash , I found them between my Christmas decorations .

 

Thank you very much for visiting , I hope I gave you some inspiration with my layout.

Hello Maja friends!

It got cold, the first snow starts falling, icicles on the roofs and will make our world a little bit quieter and slower.
Winter time is sledding time too.
I loved that as I was a child, today I’m a ‘Frostbeule’ ūüėČ
 and what could be better than sitting in a small warm dreamy winter cottage 
and watching the snow fall softly to the ground. 
 
The children are romping in the snow and inside a fireplace crackles, wonderful!
used papers

some details

a winter tree chipboard  from Dusty Attic, snowflakes made with stencil and cutting dies

two snowy lanterns made with silicone moulds

a icicles fabric ribbon and some suitable chipboard winter leaves

Have a peaceful and relaxe advent season!

Winter greetings from Kerstin!
