Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
Continuing the Miles Apart festival 😉 we’re having on the blog, I bring you a layout I made using this beautiful collection:
Having made some smaller projects I shared with you in my previous posts I wanted to make a layout – but believe me, I had the hardest time just choosing the papers! There are so many gorgeous patterns I wanted to show but at the same time I didn’t want to make my page overwhelmed so much that both the photo and papers get lost. I wanted to make it soft and delicate to best compliment the photo of my cousin’s baby daughter. And after much consideration I selected soft blue patterns with a touch of pink flowers against a neutral sand background. First I applied filigree flourishes with a stencil and texture paste:
…then hand-cut some tags:
…then added a chipboard title embossed with crisp white powder:
…and mimicked the printed flower bouquets with dimensional flowers:
I also added powder blue lace to refer to the one in the photo:
I also included some opalescent sequins to add soft shine to my design.
Here’s my list of supplies:
Maja Design papers:
A few words-bs
The little things
Other: chipboard: Scrapiniec; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; stencil: Agateria; lace, sequins: my stash.
After all that pain 😉 of picking papers I really like the way it turned out! What do you think?
Hello Maja Design Friends. Jennifer Snyder here with some fresh picked fun using Maja Design’s new “Miles Apart” collection.
This is a “must have” collection with gorgeous soft roses, pale peach, light green, gingham patterns and all the exquisite vintage charm that sets Maja Design distinctively apart from any other paper company. It really makes me smile because it’s so beautiful and fresh feeling.
The collection also has a 6×6 paper pad and the matching Monochrome collection, “Shades of Miles” with just solids. I used the “Walnut Brown” from the monochrome collection as a background frame for my card.
The papers used on the card are:
“A few words”
“Keep in touch”
I accented the card with some chipboard raspberries from Creative Embellishments. They have been painted with acrylic paint and topped with a raffia bow to give the card a touch of nature.
Thanks for stopping and Happy Crafting.
Hello Sweet Maja fans,
Lenet here and today I bring you this romantic card with lot’s of layers and fussy cuts tucked between them.
I never heard of fussy cuts until Amy called them like that. So those little things you cut out with a little scissor are fussy cuts. Love it.
For this card I used the Celebration 15×15 paperpad the fussy cuts are cut out of Engagement from the Vintage romance collection.
Here a close up of the fussy cuts
And the fussy cuts tucked between the layers to give it some depth.
I love to use layers on a card . I use foamtape between them to stick the layers together.
And a close up of the left uppercorner with the fuzzy cuts.
Thank you very much for visiting , Hope you like the card I made for you.
Stay Safe and see you next time.
Welcome dear Maja friends!
I was inspired to create a new mixed media layout as memory on beautiful summer days on the beach some years ago.
I used some papers from the latest beautiful collection ‘Miles Apart’ and suitable for Monochromes ‘ Shades of Miles’ in blue shades, blue as the sea and heaven and blue as one of my favourite colours :-).
I worked in vintage style with the single sheet ‘Keeping busy’,
combined with distress brown tones a perfect match for me.

Chipboards from Dusty Attic; cutting dies, stamps, stencil,

Thanks for your visit!
Have a good time!
Hello sweet Maja fans,
Lenet here and I bring you this layout.
Ooooh my shabby heart, I love this collection so much!
The miles apart collection that is . It’s the ultimate shabby chic collection for me now.
The soft colors the roses ..everything. Next to the Sofiero collection my favorite one.
I do love the strips at the bottom of every sheet of paper, it always ahs a nice quote on it that you can use on cards, mini albums, lay out, you name it.
I especially love the the one from the keep in touch sheet. I used it at the top corner on your left.
i cut out the flowers from the Thinking of you sheet..they are wonderful to use as a die cut.
Some pearly swirls from Prima Marketing to finish it off.
This is a chippie from Dusty Attic wich I colored with sugar floss lustre and sugar orchid lustre embossing powder from Blond Moments.
I hope you love this layout as much as I do.
Thank you for visiting , stay safe and hop to see you again soon.
