Memories Captured

Good morning! Today I have a new project to share. I have played with the Vintage Summer Basics collection.

I added some mixed media to the background – some misting, stamping and masking. And then I did some layering with the fab Maja papers together with the Blue Fern Studios chipboard circle.

The title chipboard and also the chipboard circle are just dabbed with some white gesso.

Layout tutorial by Camilla

Hi everybody! Today I would like to share a layout photo tutorial with you. I have used papers from the Gammaldags Jul. This is what the layout looks like.Dream Big

Since I want to alter the Blue Fern Studios chipboard pieces I will be using, I start with those. It takes some time for them to dry. First I ground with white gesso and then add some Distress Paint (scattered straw) and some Shimmerz (golden wheat) here and there. When the colours have dried I ink the edges using fluid chalk ink (dry sand).

Tut1 To make the chipboards more shiny, I add glossy accent and before it dries I sprinkle some pearls on top.

Tut2 Now the chipboards are ready to be used on the layout.

Tut3 I layer the papers Vackra paket and Karamellstrut from the Gammaldags Jul collection on top of each other like this. The edges are inked with fluid chalk ink.

Tut4 Then I glue down two old book pages and the chipboard circle. I tuck in the photo inside the circle.

Tut5Then I add my other two chipboard pieces and two vines to add to the circle.

Tut6After that I add a bow to create more texture. And I also add some grey and brown mini roses here and there.

Tut7 Tut8 To make it more colourful I add some purple mini roses as well.

Tut9 As final details I add two shabby chic treasures (corners) and some crystal swirls.

Smile - 1 And here is a cluster made from various flowers and leaves. I also blinged it up a bit using crystal swirls.

Smile - 3 Here you can see the layering.

Smile - 4 I just love little details. Here I have used a metal trinklet from Prima.

Smile - 5 And here you can see the altered chipboard. I have painted it white and then stamped on it, before I added some silver stickles.

The Best Day Ever

Happy Sunday! I hope you are all having a great weekend. Today I would like to share a layout I made using the Vintage Summer Basics collection. I have used the blues and the brown/yellow and layered three lovely papers on top of each other.

“The Best Day Ever”The Best Day Ever The frame underneath the photo is a chipboard piece from Blue Fern Studios. I have painted it with gesso and then added some different inks, salt and water to receive a melted look. I then stamped on it and covered it with glossy accent.

Best day1 Some gorgeous blooms to embellish the page.

Best day2 The chipboard title from Blue Fern Studios is painted in white gesso and then I inked the edges a bit, before I covered it with glossy accent. Finally I sprinkled some golden glitter here and there.

Best day3 The label strip on the Maja Design papers is very decorative. Here I have used them to layer the middle of the page.

Crea Diem Elegance

Hi and a Happy New Year to all of you! I am totally excited to stay on the Maja Design Creative Team for another year.

I start this year with a layout made with the Crea Diem collection. The elegance of these papers are so inspiring. All you need is a simple design with a bit of layering to make a beautiful layout.

“Ridläger 2013″

RidlägerThe lace is a perfect match to these stunning papers and adds a bit more dimension.

Ridläger1 To get a look more vintage, I added bows made of seam binding a bit shrinkled.

Ridläger2 A bit of layering underneath the photo – an old book page and a frame made with the Maja Design paper.

Ridläger3 Since the papers all are in grey tones it was easy to find flowers that matches.

Ridläger4 The pearls and the resin butterfly make a final touch for these elegant papers.

Ridläger5 The title in black so that it pops a bit.

Gift bag

Hi everybody! In just a few days it is Christmas and for my blog post today I have made a gift bag. It is perfect to use as a package for a small gift to someone. For this gift bag I have used the Vintage Frost Basics collection. I just love the little angels!


I only used a flower and a bow made of seam binding as decorations. And I also added a tag where I can write a sentiment or something. For the sides I used a striped paper.
