Already teenager!

Good morning Maja friends! It seems like the autumn is here, today it’s raining and it’s windy. A perfect day to stay indoors and to make some new cards!

Couple of Fika cards

Hello dear friends! Its Evgenia Petzer with you today. In Russia we celebrate the first day of Autumn and also its a beginning of a school year at Russian schools. I personaly love autumn, I love its warm colors and the Fika collection is a perfect thing for these autumn days. Although I am not a coffe lover, i love tea and this collection brings me the sense of rich fovors of tea as well. I love making cards and while making them I also enjoy my cup of tea.

So here are my 2 cards that I made, both of them use Dusty Attic chipboard as well.

Baby Handmade Frame

Baby_Handmade_Frame_Irene_Tan1

Hello Maja fans! Today I would like to showcase a super easy project that even the kids can do. This project is a handmade frame using just two pieces of 6 x 6 pattern papers and some embellishment. For my frame, I’ve used Maja Design 6 x 6 Vintage Baby collection.

Here are the simple steps.

First, choose two pieces of 6 x 6 pattern papers. For the paper on the front, cut out a window. (Note: the size of the window should be a little smaller from the size of your photograph. You can trace your photograph on the paper and cut the window a little smaller)

Glue three edges of the two papers together. Left one of the edges open for inserting your photograph later.

To make sure your photograph stays in the middle of the frame or in the correct position, simply just hand stitch a line underneath the window horizontally across the frame.

Lastly, just add some embellishment around the frame.

Here you have it, an easy and simple frame! It can be used as a home decor or even as a gift for a friend. Hope you all like today’s simple project tutorial. See you all soon!

Supplies Used: Pattern Papers: Maja Design 6 x 6 Vintage Baby Collection; Others: Petaloo flowers, white gel pen, Clear Scraps acrylic and mask, adhesives.

“Hello! My name is Kristine Peshko. I am very happy to be a guest at your favorite spot in your blog. Maja Design is the paper that inspires me always! When I do something, everything goes by itself. For me it is an endless pleasure of working with paper, which is thought-out to the last detail! Scrapbooking to me is first of all albums. Paper Maja Design is ideal for albums. I am confident that over the years it will become more valuable. The quality of the paper on top. A collection of designs and sheets are always designed and fit together. I really like doing albums like with photos, working with emotions. So without photos while working on a composition and a certain style. Since I love the mix of media I can not help but note that the paper will withstand all tests. Embossing, sprays, pigments, mediums – in every project I add different techniques, I think, because of my work look more unique. Basically, I do work with a light touch of vintage. And also in the style of Shabby Chic, really like men and eco theme. Lately I’ve been using natural materials and inspired by the nature has given us. Many thanks for the invitation! I wish all readers of the blog of inspiration and creative success!”

Welcome, Little Prince!

Hello there, Maja Fans!

I’m so happy you’ve visited the blog today :) I have a sweet welcome baby boy set I made using our beautiful Vintage Baby collection, combining the 12×12 papers and the small pad. The set consists of a photo frame and a matching card.

I selected some blue and beige designs from the collection to fit a boy frame:

mdbbsetI trimmed the papers and layered them and then fixed to a piece of cardboard. I cut out label shapes and made them into tags, I also die-cut sweet stars and decorated the top star with a button:

mdbbset1I made a pocket to fit a 9×13 cm photo by choosing one of the journaling cards, cutting out the central bracket label and matting it with a trimmed piece of paper, mounted on flat 3D dots so that the photo slides in more easily:

mdbbset5I love it when signature strips offer some additional designs you can use to decorate your projects! Here I cut off a piece to add to my “star-flag” :)

mdbbset2One of the signature strips from large sheets is included in the designs of the small pad :) I used it under the photo pocket:

mdbbset3I also made a custom topper by sticking a round epoxy upon a postamp image of a baby and then cut it out. I matted the sticker with another circle and mounted upon a kraft die-cut star:

mdbbset4Then, using some left-over scraps and similar elements, I made a congratulation card:

mdbbset6mdbbset7mdbbset8And finally I put the photo frame into a shadow-box frame and the set is ready to be presented – as soon as the little prince decides to arrive :)

mdbbset0I really like the way the set turned out – and I’m really proud of myself as I managed not to use even a single flower! 😀

Supplies:

Maja Design papers: Vintage Baby: small pad, Sweet little prince, Sweet little prince bs, Cutie, Newborn, Welcome little one, Die cuts, Journaling cards blue. Other: Dies: Sizzix, Joy! Crafts; glitter: Ranger; buttons, pom-poms, twine, cheescloth – from my stash.

See you!Maja-sign

 

He was singing in the rain!

Good morning Maja friends! I hope you all are enjoying the summer days. This is my last vacation week and I am looking forward to some lazy, but creative days.

IMG_1484

Today I have made a card for a man who turns 75. I don’t know him personally, but I have been told that he was a handsome man when he was younger, so I thought this photo of the moviestar Gene Kelly suit the card. Gene Kelly is known from the movie “Singing in the Rain”.

IMG_1472

The card is made in vintage style with papers from “Vintage Autumn Basics”.

IMG_1473

Together with the lovely Maja papers I have used a lot of old stuff to decorate the card; lace, a slide, Norwegian ration cards from 2nd world war, stamps and a postcard. The text is a stamp and I have also used chipboard, thickers, tags and twine.

IMG_1480Here you see a close up of the ration cards. Each peace gave you 25 gram coffee.

IMG_1483Do you remember these slides? It’s some years ago :-)
