You Are So Loved

Hello Maja Design fans and friends!  It’s Nancy here today, and I am going to share a card I created with several different saved scraps from 2 different Maja Design paper collections:  Vintage Winter- used for the background; Vintage Summer Basics – the pink paper layer; and Vintage Winter again - used for the card sentiments.

you are loved

I adhered my background paper to my card base (I used Tombow permanent double-sided adhesive tape.)  The background paper is from the Vintage Winter paper collection – Baka En Julkaka – Bake a Christmas Cake (fs).

I distressed and inked the edges, layered a pink paper piece, from Vintage Summers Basics paper collection – 1909, over the background, then layered a loose woven piece of burlap.

I shaped some Ashlynn wire into some flourish stems and adhered them down with hot glue.

A mini album…

Marilyn Rivera-TDL& MajaDesign-800

 

Happy Monday!! Marilyn’s here with you today to share this mini album with a decorated wood box that I made for a special friend.  First, I made the mini album cover with cardboard, it is 5′ x 3 1/2″ and  I covered with the Rose Garden paper from The Coffee in the Arbour collection. I used Vintage Spring Basics, Vintage Autumn Basics and Coffee in the Arbour collections in my project and I decorated it with laces and flowers from Tresor de Luxe.

 

 

Marilyn Rivera-TDL& MajaDesign-800.jpg-3

 

I painted the jute with gesso and made a bow. I added a little frame, pearls and different laces.

Marilyn Rivera-TDL& MajaDesign-800.jpg-4

When you open the mini album you see in the first page that I cut “Days to Remember” from the paper with the same name and in the back cover I used the “3rd of May” paper, a stencil, a heart lace and molding paste.

Marilyn Rivera-TDL& MajaDesign-800.jpg-1

 

I covered  out and inside of the box with 2nd of May paper.  I used both sides of the paper, the box’s outside  is with flowers and inside is with the stripes.

Marilyn Rivera-TDL& MajaDesign-800.jpg-2

 

The mini album has ten pages that I worked with different papers, I don’t show you all the pages because I don’t have permission to show my friend’s photos.  It is a surprise gift.

Saying Good – bye to the summer

Hello Maja Friends. September has come and we have an Indian summer at the moment – my favorite time.

and this card is like saying good – bye to the summer:

ClearCardNor_ElenaOlinevich I used Vintage Summer Basic Collection and an acrylic card sheets to create this.

But the title I used for it is a scrap of the paper from Coffee in the Arbour collection. Now you see how they fit each other easily.

Time for Fall

Hello Maja lovelies! The air here in New Jersey is cooling down and I can see some signs of Fall already! Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love Fall, but summer is my favorite. That being said, I pulled out some Autumn themed papers and accoutrements, starting with Maja Design’s Walking in the Forest collection: MomentsRemembered090914MdAccompanying the papers are some Spellbinders Maple Leaf dies, wooden accents, twine, pearls and Copper Liquid pearls. My design is loosely based on this week’s Mojo Monday sketch.

This Saturday I’ll be visiting with you again…with a quite a few photos of my craft space. See you then…and enjoy the rest of your week! Andrea-sign

Scrapping Favorite Colors

Captured Harvest

Hello Maja fans!  It’s Gabrielle here with you today to share my latest page design using some of my favorite Maja papers.  I don’t know about you but I personally have certain favorite color combinations I like to use and one of them is Plums/Purples/Greens.  That’s why Ska vi ta en Fika? is a collection I go back to again and again when I’m scrapping a page design.

Fika-P1

I used three papers from this collection:  Favoriter (both front and backside), En Kopp Te, and Soders Hojder.  I used Favoriter as the matting/frame paper, cutting out the inside and using the backside for the creamy banner piece I used behind the photo.  I used Soders Hojder for matting the photo and for the circle accents and I used En Kopp Te-bs as the main background paper.

Captured Harvest close3

I used a Dusty Attic chipboard as a corner accent on this page.  I first painted it with Gesso to give it a good base for my color tints.  Then I inked the chipboard with Ingvild Bolme’s Moss Green and Branch Bark inks.

Captured Harvest close1

I made the banner design by using the backside of the ‘Favoriter’ paper, cutting a strip and cutting a ‘V’ grove into the bottom of it.  I like to do a little machine stitching to my cut outs to give them a nice finish.  I also used a circle stamp (a design by Janene Meyerowitz) on the Soders Hojder paper and cut little circle accents for my page design.

Captured Harvest close4

I always like to added a little texture to my page designs, for this one I used a Crafter’s Workshop stencil called ‘Mini North Star’ with some home made texture paste.  I finished the look with some coordinating green adhesive pearls.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post as much as I enjoyed creating it! I made this page using products from a page kit package from The Scrapbook Diaries, you can get your page kit with a video tutorial with step by step instructions on how I made up this page by visiting their store.   Thanks for stopping by the Maja Design blog today!

Theme Collections All the Year Round

Welcome to the blog today, Maja Fans :)

It’s Maja here to share two cards with which I mean to prove you can use Maja Design theme collections all the year round :)

I love playing with theme papers and use them for other occassions too. Thus you don’t need to put your Christmas papers away for a year in January :) For instance, would you say this wedding card was made using Vintage Winter papers?

mdwBut it is! :) I used the brown, red and cream sheets for the gorgeous ornate background:

mdw1I stamped some crackles onto the top layer and added a bunch of roses, resin frame and metal butterflies:

mdw2Then I added vintage ribbon sprayed with golden mist to match the frame colour:

mdw3For the backround bottom layers you can use even theme-patterned papers, details such as snowflakes or Santa Clauses won’t be visible clearly ;)

Supplies: Vintage Winter: Chocolate, December, Season’s Greetings.  Other: resin frame: RetroKraft Shop; stamps: Kaisercraft, Lemonade; butterflies: Trimcraft; flowers&leaves, ribbon: from my stash.

 

But this doesn’t apply to winter/Christmas papers only. This baby boy welcome card is used with the marine papers :)

mdmajWell, OK, this one is to some extent marine-themed, but I could have omitted the little whale and washi tape and it would look just as ordinary baby boy card, right? :)

mdmaj1I layered several stripes and stars design, die-cut the onesie and coloured it with Promarkers to give it some dimension and matted it with a piece of cheesecloth. Can you see those cute tiny button brads? :)

mdmaj2I used a piece of paper with the signature stripe visible – aren’t those little elements really useful?

mdmaj3Supplies: Life by the Sea: The East Coast, Marina Hovering bs, Islands and Skerries bs, Regatta bs. Other: dies: Sizzix, Poppy Stamps; brads: Making Memories; washi tape: Dekoracyjna Taśma; charm, cheesecloth, linen string: from my stash.

See you!

altered wooden clock

Hi there Maja friends!
It’s my turn on the blog today and I want to share this clock with you today.
Found this clock at a local store (Action) and it just had to be altered! lol
For this project I used the Vintage Autumn Basics collection.


I did a bit of fussy cutting for the front of the clock, making sure the lovely lady stayed in tact. The No.XVI clock sheet is perfect for some extra embellishments.


The beautiful papers on the sides.


Just love to add some kind of jewelry to my projects. Here I used a piece of a necklace.


The gorgeous big tulle flowers are from 13Arts.
I used the No.III sheet for the rolled roses.


The clocks from the No.XVI sheet.


The top of the clock with an arrangement of tulle and paper flowers.


Rolled two pieces of paper for an extra element on top.


Papers used: No.I, No.III, No.XVI.

Enjoy your day!
