yesterday the beautiful wedding post has come live with tons of amazing Wedding inspiration from previous and current Creative Team members.
and today I have a card to share with you. My friends asked me to recreate the card I have previously made. Well, frankly speaking I do not like to make the same things and always try to find for the new ways.
But this time I tried, and I changed some of the embellishments but kept the same papers and here is the result.
and what about you. Have you ever tried to create something you have already done before but with some little changes?
Products used: Vintage Spring Basics – 7th of May, 7th of April; Wycinanka chipboard, lace and tulle trims.
Thank you for visiting our blog today! This day we want to give you some inspiration for this Summer’s upcoming weddings, in form of cards, layouts and boxes. We have gathered creations from both present and past, and from different designers – new and old team members.

I just can’t resist the trees in bloom! Every spring I’m taking hundreds of photos in our garden when the cherry, apple and pear trees are blooming. Here’s the one from this year, with my favorite flower in the foreground
I guess you could use Vintage Spring Basics for many occasions, but we must all agree that this collection is the first choice for a spring project!Here I picked a paper which makes a great background : it has a very subtle design and additionally I white-washed it with gesso, to have a better base for using watercolours. Just wanted to play with watercolours techniques, like masking, stamping, even stamping with the mask – to name just a few which you can see here. Eventually I complemented the vibrant colours with the pastel scraps of Vintage Spring papers and some die-cut leaves.

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout about a busy little bee. I take this photo in the beautiful garden ot the Abbey of Fontevraud (France).
I started to glue some strips of paper from the Vintage Spring collection on the background. Then I added some big splatters of watered Gesso. When dry, I added also some splatters of purple colors.
I let completly dry all the paints before adding some tiny dots with a gold crackle paste.
I die-cut the leaves in a coordinated papers and used Twinling H2Os to color the flowers.
I used the same colors of Twinklings H2O to color the lace flowers and I used the same colors of Twinklings H2O to color the lace flowers and I added small touches of gold with some Glass Glitters and Mica Powder..
I stamped the wings of the bees on a a recycled plastic, the body on a paper that I colored afterward. I glued all together with Glossy Accent that I used to cover the body too.
To finish my layout, I added some random stamping with two differents colors, a black ink and white Gesso.

Hello there, Maja Fans, welcome to the blog today
I know probably most of you already celebrated Mother’s Day, but in Poland we’re still waiting for the fiesta as it comes on the 26th of May. No money can refund mother’s love and devotion, so I think a handmade gift is the most appropriate present we can give to our most loved women. Any mom highly values the time and heart included in things her kids made themselves! (my mom still keeps those awful wobbly doodles I created for her in the early primary school LOL). And so I have a handmade gift set I created for mom.
I used the soft pastels and beautiful roses design of the Vintage Summer Basics collection. The shabby chic set includes this romantic notepad:
I layered several distressed papers on the front cover and decorated the wire with a piece of delicate guipure lace and vintage key charm:
The central motif is a romantic cameo I inserted into a plastic frame aged with some alcohol inks. I also added mini roses that match the paper design:
I placed the chipboard word covered with Crackle Accents between two pearl brads:
For the inside covers I used the “magazine” paper – I think it perfectly suits the look
The card mimicks the notepad front cover design to make a perfect set:
Cameos are matted with pieces of cheesecloth for a more shabby and romantic look. You can also see a die-cut frame I traced along with white gelpen:

Hi there Maja friends!
Ingrid here today with a layout of my youngest daughter, Yiscka.
In 9 days she will be back from her adventure in the States.
She ended her internship and hopefully she will get her diploma this summer!
Pfffff….almost 7 months without my girl…it’s been hard but I couldn’t be more proud of her!
So this page is for her….made with love.
For this page I used the Vintage Baby collection.
I wanted to show you the versatility of the papers.
This baby collection is not only for little ones but also perfect for your older babies!!
Didn’t take the pink papers but I choose to work with the blue and brown ones.
The background was created with a mix of gesso and some of the Magic powder from 13arts. Made the mixture quite thick to get the crackle effect.
The splashes of ink in the background were made with Distress stain from Tim Holtz.
Had a wooden heart in my stash and just gave it a coat of gesso and some ink.
Also added some brown pearls.
Added these Prima flowers, one colored with some blue paint from 13arts.
This word, special, came from the bottom strip of the Ephemera cards sheet.
Those lovely butterflies are from Prima.
Printed and cut the title and outlined the edges with a brown fineliner.
Sweet little Prince

Hello everyone! It’s Cathy here on the blog today. For my project today I have a frame to share with you. I created this frame for my classroom as I wanted to inspire my students as well as add something beautiful to the space. It’s always nice to have some home decor pieces in learning spaces. I bought an inexpensive frame and decorated it using papers from the limited edition Nyhavn Collection.
I used Heritage Harbour as my background and created the splatters using Prima Splatter stamps. I covered some Kaisercraft words with Historical Atmosphere and Like a Colourful Bouquet papers and inked the edges with Prima dark bark inks. To finish I painted the sides of the words with Kaisercraft mango paint.
I used some chipboard pieces and altered them by applying chalk inks and distress inks.
To add some colour, I added some flowers. I have had these Prima daisies in my stash for a while and I added some die cut leaves as well as a twine bow to add texture. I used La La Land open leaf flourish and Elizabeth Craft curvy leaf dies.
I repeated the flowers in the opposite corner but picked up on the orange from the letters. I have used quite a few Prima flowers and the same dies to create the leaves in the cluster. I adhered everything using Prima art basics soft matt gel…it’s my favourite adhesive at the moment!
