Hi everybody! I hope you all are well. The chilly weather in Sweden made me bring out the Vintage Frost Basics collection. And this is what I made. The three papers from the collection are layered on top of each other and to make them blend together I used different border punches.
Hello Elena is here, and today I have some projects to share with you, using new collection – A Gift for You.
I have made a Tri_fold Frame on clear acrylic and as it is going to be a present to our friends I didn’t use any of the photo and just kept the central frame save for their own photo.
I cut the house dies using some of the background papers as well as the trees and placed them on the frames.
On Christmas morning, When the snow is falling, Prima Marketing flowers, Dies and Resin Frames, Finnabair Art Ingredients,
And one more project I have to share , it is an album I made using ( again) acrylic base.
It has a very pretty from of Christmas Tree and I used a lot of papers from a Gift For You Collection too.
Thank you for stopping by today.
Morning Maja lovelies! I’ve been thoroughly enjoying playing with my new Maja holiday papers, though lately I’ve been on a monochromatic kick…and it turns out the Maja papers are the perfect medium for that! My first card is very neutral with black accents to catch the eye: I started off with the papers named ‘my dear friend’, front and back. I am in love with those sweet little angels! I added a sentiment from Verve and a cross stamp and die cut, also from Verve. Next up, a little more traditional colors: For this card, I pulled out some ‘given from the heart’ papers. I roughed up the edges, added a twine/gingham bow and a sweet little velvet jingle bell. I put a bit of gauze behind the image for a little more shabbiness. The image and stamp are courtesy of Verve and I also highlighted the image panel with some black liquid pearls.
Hi all, it’s Gabrielle here with you today to share with you my latest page using Maja Design papers. As I was scrapping this recent photo of my youngest daughter, I was struck by how much she’s grown up. I can’t believe she is a teenager now (turned 13 over the summer). I miss her being my little girl, but I also have enjoyed every stage of her life, this girl cracks me up with her funny sense of humour and quirky style.
For this page I used a modge podge of Maja Design papers. I more often than not combine a variety of Maja papers, coordinating them by color rather than collection name.
I used a variety of scraps in neutral tones and greens to make my rolled paper accents. I rolled up the scraps and then bound them with some twine. I added a fun l’il door hook on the side of my paper from Ingvild Bolme’s Junkyard Findings.
I used a variety of Dusty Attic chipboard as part of my page design, including a Skeleton Clock Frame, Foliage, and the ‘So Sweet’ title. For the frame I first painted the pieces with some white Gesso. Then I randomly dabbed on some ‘Broken China’ and ‘Peeled Paint’ Tim Holtz Distress Ink. I did a little edging with Ingvild Bolme’s ‘Branch Bark’ Chalk Ink. Then I added a coat of Inksenttials Crackle Medium. When it was dry and crackled I dabbed on some ‘Walnut Stain’ Distress ink so that it got in the little cracks and whipped off the excess ink.
I used the 11th of March-bs paper as the green background frame for my page and as the main background paper I used the backside of ‘Flannel Shirt’ paper from ‘Walking in the Forest Collection’….this is one of my favorite papers to use as a nice neutral background, especially when I do some mixed media on the page as I did here. I used a bit of Broken China and Peeled Paint Distress ink pads on the page and added some texture with home-made texture paste and a Crafter’s Workshop Stencil called ‘Mini Damask’. The butterfly is an image that I printed on a piece of transparency and cut out.
I wanted to keep my blossoms soft and clean, so I went with a burlap bloom from Petaloo and two white blossoms from Dusty Attic Designs. The small sugared dots are from Prima.
The strip of lace I used on the bottom of the page and the natural floral cluster (just above the title) are both from Tresors de Luxe. I had a little fun with the title. First I gave it a coat of brown chalk ink ‘Knotted Wood’ by Ingvild Bolme, then I used some ‘Waterfall’ Stickles in the center of my alpha’s. After it all dried I gave the whole thing a coat of gloss medium with some Glossy Accents.
Maja Design Products used in this project: Vintage Spring Basics (11th of March-bs, 7th of April, 7th of April-bs), Antiglen (Kaffe på trappan), Walking in the Forest (Flannel Shirt-bs), Sofiero (brown dot).
I hope you enjoyed today’s project and hope you find yourself some time this week to get your Maja on.
Ohhhh….I really need some hugs!
Feeling a bit sad….. One week ago my youngest daughter left home to study in the States.
She will be gone for almost 7(!!) months!! I’m extremely proud of her but I think all moms can imagine how I’m feeling right now….
So today I have a tissue box to share with you all.
Think I will be needing those tissues a lot!!!!
Enjoy your day!
Good morning! We have recently celebrated our second Father’s Day. It was a lovely day, filled with joy. I created a special card for Johan’s first Father’s Day last year. This layout continues the journey…
I shot this photo of Johan and Joel while Joel was very ill and went in and out of hospital last year. I’ve used the same poem for this layout as I used on the card. Freely translated it goes like this…
Sent with love
Given from the heart
Boquet of poinsettias

Hello Maja Design fans and friends!
Larissa here with a new Maja Design project to share with you!
This time I have used the gorgeous Vintage Spring Basics line to create the layout below:
Note Book – A day to remember
This layout has 1st of April paper as a base to paste all the other layers of pieces of beautiful Maja Design patterned paper.
As you can see I have decorated this page with a few cutouts, a bunch of flowers, blings, pearls, blings and shabby chic resins by Prima.
Let´s take a closer look:
I hope you´ve enjoyed it!
Thank you for your visit,
Hello,today I am sharing with you a LO I did,using the first photo’s with snow Oct 2014!!! Garden season is over,but this year I made a couple winter gardens,using my purple flowering cabbage,& pine,so I was excited to get the snow to get my photo’s.
I used the “A gift for You Collection” with the Vintage Summer Basics Collection… I used: On Christmas Morning & Wrapped in old News Paper, I also used Vintage Summer Basics The Chipboard used is from Dusty Attic. Here are some closeups of detail…..My dogs have been on my mind, with winter coming. We love the snow,but I worry about them when it turns really cold. So I guess that is why they ended up in my flower clusters…
The large flower is Bobunny. I used Tim Holtz Die,Festive Greenery,for most of the foliage used on this LO. I cut the pieces,applied rock candy crackle,then dry painted on gesso to bring out the cracks. I then applied MS white texture effects,& while the effects was wet,I sprinkled on some glitter. Milo’s nose was in the snow in the photo & now it is in the effects..I painted the wagon wheel with rock candy crackle,rubbed in the brown chalk,then dry brushed on some gesso & applied texture effects…..
Hello,today I am here to share with you a fall LO,using the beautiful Walking in the Forrest Collection….
I used: Bird Song,Flannel Shirt,Jeans,Mountain Ash,Orchestra of Nature & a BS of a label.. The Chipboard used is from Dusty Attic. Here are some closeups of detail….I did distressed payer layers,using burlap & corrugate paper in my layers….On the birds on the branch,I stained the branches with Vintage photo,& on the leaves I used green & barn door red. I then applied a thick coat of rock candy crackle. & once the crackle dried brushed on some gesso,to bring out the cracks & to tone down the color. I also cut out the birds from the Collection, & glued them on to the branches….Chicken wire under the fence….
