Happy Days

Hello everyone! It’s Cathy here on the blog today. I have a layout that I have created using papers from a few collections, Vintage Summer and Life by The Sea. I also used the butterflies from Vintage Spring Basics as embellishments. I used the colours from my photo to determine my papers and went from there.

I used a 2 Crafty chipboard frame and altered it using walnut stain and faded jeans distress inks. The flowers are a combination of Green Tara, Petaloo and Prima flowers which all vary in shades of blue. The background (right) I used antique linen distress ink and The Crafters Workshop Mini Chickenwire reversed stencil to add some texture.

I recently bought a Memory Box banner die called Banner Parade. I die cut some papers from Life By the Sea and alternated them to create this fun banner. I applied some foam tape to each to add dimension.

Hashtags are everywhere these days and I used a chipboard saying from Dusty Attic and played around with it using Walnut Stain and Distress Stain and also Faded Jeans Distress ink to create an ombre effect.

This pennant was a last minute addition to my layout. It was a blank area that just needed something and banners are a great way to fill up a space. I added some hearts which were some left overs …..nothing goes to waste!

Confirmation card

Good morning! Heidi here today sharing a confirmation card with you.

IMG_0329

In Norway, where I live, it’s common to have a confirmation at age 15. Many teenagers prefer to get money as a gift for their confirmation day, so today I have made a card with a paper bag inside which can accommodate a gift.

IMG_0331

The girl who is going to receive this card love horses. So that is why I have used a image of a girl and her horse.

IMG_0333I have used papers from the collections “Vintage Autumn Basic” and “Life by the Sea”.

My first post!

Hi Maja friends,
Amy here!
I am so excited to show you my first layout as a Maja Girl ;-)Sadly though that I will be filling in for Gabrielle {I will miss her awesome work with Maja} for the next six months but I’ll try and do my best for you all.

I really love this months “mood board” and I was planing to participate in it before I got asked to be on the Maja Design Team! So a masculine layout I will show you today {without any blooms yep that was a real task for me}

The picture I used is one of our handsome son in a German amusement park! He told his dad can I sit on the car to take a picture. My husband said sure you can but I never got around to scrap it.

I always take out my first sheet {that’s darker blue one} cut out the middle part and on top of that a whole bunch of layers. Let’s have a closer look:

 

I don’t know if some of you already know my work but I love to use chipboard especially with the beautiful Maja Design papers. For this layout I took out all my metal pieces, that had to do anything with gears or cars.

Sea theme inspired cards

Hello dear friends! Its Evgenia Petzer with you today, sharing my 2 cards, that I tried to create in a bit more boyish, playful style than I usually do. I absolutely adore the Life by the Sea collection, I think its the best on the scrap-market, yet it was released couple years ago. I think I have used it already so many times, but still can’t get enough of it.

This time I gain made my cards full of details, just teh way I love the cards and all projects to be. I wanted them to be more masculine, so i tried to work without flowers and Used more black colors and added a bit of roughness by creating distressed edges, black splashes.

As Maja Design papers are of a very good thickness, some of the embellishmnets that you can see on my cards are simply fussy cutted from the papers. all of teh chipboard used is from Dusty Attic.

So lets have a look?
