Goodmorning Lovely Maja Design Fans,

How nice of you to visit the blog, today it’s my turn again to post something that I made with the gorgeous Maja Design papers. For this layout I used three collections named ‘Nyhavn’, ‘Little street Cafe’ & the stunning new ‘Miles Apart’….jet again I used a precious picture of mine of both our children {so much love I see when looking at it} that’s why I named this layout Love Always….This was one of the first picture I took while Abbey had her eyes open so widely and looked straight into my camera…that I was so happy that I took it. Now Kevin likes to let me take pictures again yeah. I had so much fun creating this layout although yellow is not my favorite color to scrap I think it turned out pretty nice ūüėČ

First I used a Martha Steward punch to cut the upper part of my layout, I cut that out of the ‘Sitting at the dock’ & ‘Stay Creative’ sheets then I placed that on feeling good sheet. Then I added some twine and placed a circle on the middle of my layout. Later on I added a Dusty Attic stencil and some Lindy’s sprays on my work.¬† I was inspired by last months mood board at the Facebook site from Dusty Attic. Lets have a closer look:

All the chipboards I used are by Dusty Attic I treated them with white gesso and some of the I embossed like most of the words, the others I gessod and ruste pasted them I was planning on using my wonderful dusty attic paint but it was all dried out sadly enough. So I treated it with waxes and spray.

And then comes the fun part adding my flowers that I selected for this layout they are all by 49 and Market. For the finishing touch I added some metal embellishments and some dress my craft sequins which I totally adore….and I added some white gesso on my flowers to make them a softer tone.

I hope you had fun reading my post and we do love to see your work created with the lovely Maja Design papers on the¬† Facebook site….Have a gorgeous day and I hope to see you soon….

Love

Goodmorning lovely Maja Design fans,

Today i’d like to share another layout with you all and again I used two pictures, one of my darling husband when he was just a little boy back in 1972 and one of our daughter in 2020. They both had the same cookie jar between there legs isn’t that cute I just so adore both pictures that I had to use them on a layout.

As I told you in one of my previous posts I like to use the opposite parts of my chipboards as I also did here next to my husbands picture you see the big part and then the barbwire that came out of that part. I used some ruste paste on my chipboard and later on some opal magic wax {Blue Velvet} it gives it a nice purple/blueish color just like my flowers.

On the background I added a Dusty Attic stencil and some spray by Lindy’s {Sidewalk Chalk} my favorite spray. On the background of my white circle paper I added a text stamp and I used a flair in my flower cluster which I totally love to use on my layouts. I also gessod the word “captured”and the stamped on it with the same text stamp. For the finishing touch I added some purple wishing bubbles {oh my aren’t they the cutest}

I hope I have inspired you with this layout to create something beautiful and please do share your work with us on our Facebook site we always love to see your work. Have a blessed Tuesday and see you soon….

Love

Happy Together

Hi lovely Maja Design fans,

I sure hope you are all making some vacation memories even in these weird times. I was so happy that I got my Maja Design team box with this new amazing collection inside it, named “Miles Apart” it’s just so gorgeous and it will be released on the 10th of August just six more days and you can play with it yeahhh :-)….I can’t wait to see what you will all create with this amazing new line. Today i’d like to show you a layout I made with “Miles Apart” for this layout I used a picture of our two treasures Kevin & Abbey! I have to tell you all Kevin is just such a sweetheart to his little sister my heart melts when I see him playing with Abbey…

I am so happy that as a creative team member of Maja Design I already get to play with it before the release, and I am sure you will love it too. For the background paper I used the Stay Creative sheet and on top of that I used Thinking of you sheet. That last one I distressed like crazy with water and my hands and when it was dry I added some background stamps and a Dusty Attic stencil. Then I added some Lindy’s flat fabio spray {Chateau Rose} and some starburst spray {My Mojito Green}.

I also added some lace and cheesecloth do add dimension to my layout, to matt my picture I used the 6×6 paper pad….yes there is also a 6×6 pad yeahhhh ūüôā ! All the chipboard pieces are gessod and rust pasted at the end I used some paint also by the Dusty Attic and some finnabair waxes. And then came the favorite part of all adding my flowers I totally went overboard using four different packs of 49 and Market beauties. At the end I added a stamp {on my picture} and some metal pieces and art stones….

Maja Design papers used:

“Miles Apart”: Close at heart, Thinking of you, Be safe, Stay creative and the 6 x 6 paper pad.

I totally feel like a kid in a candy store sniffing the papers and going through every single sheet, and saying oeh and aahhhhh lol you must think I am nuts haha! Thank you so much for visiting the blog today and I hope you enjoyed looking at my work as much as I liked making it….have a wonderful week!

Love

Hello everyone,

Goodmorning on this lovely Sunday in July, can you believe how fast this year is going we are half way through already. Our little girl turned one year old 4 days ago wow {mommy is getting old lol}! For this layout with Abbey still as my center point as you can imagine.. I used the gorgeous “Little street Cafe” collection combined with the “Celebration” collection {I love the darker colors in this collection} I challenged myself to use more then one pictures so I could capture Abbey’s silly face phase she is such a fun girl but lately she gets angry when we pick her up it must be a phase every kid is going through….Kevin didn’t have that but he is a boy so maybe girls a different.

In this layout I used Abbey her flowered hair band with salmon colored flowers in my layout….I have seen people do that before so I thought well why not me! How are you all doing btw? Hopefully you haven’t lost people that are close to you from this nasty virus…I find it very hard to be at home all day but we have too so much more time to create right? We are on our summer break now just one week left {we have three}….We are painting our house and making it pretty to live in hopefully next year we can go on a nice trip to a warm country or so.

On my layout to can see that I used a text stamp on the background of my pink paper and a stencil of text on the black paper. The chipboard are by The Dusty Attic and the flowers and wishing bubbles are by 49 and Market also I added some prima marketing flowers on this layout.

Behind my pictures and flowers I added some cheesecloth to give my layout a little bit more texture. The sweet memories text I gessod and later on embossed with some black embossing powder by Lindy’s. I really love how this layout turend out. The chipboard leaves are painted with Dusty Attic’s Forrest paint.

A very good morning to you all,

Today I present you my second layout I made since my creative juices are flowing again….the colors {blue & green} I used are totally into my comfort zone so this layout was created very quickly. And look at that picture I am so totally in love with our daughter it’s nuts. I really like to use the opposite parts of my chipboard pieces that you normally throw away that is what I used here to. Alle the chipboard pieces I used here are treated with gesso and some them later on with Finnabair wax.

The picture in this layout was a lucky shot too….that little girl brings so much joy to our life’s I can’t imagine not to have her. Being pregnant with her was amazing so much better then with our now 15 year old son who also adores his little sister. Here a picture when I was pregnant:

I like to add little details on my work like sequins, art stones, prills and those amazing clocks from a sheet from the “Vintage Autumn Basics”collection. I cut apart I think three of those sheets and keep them in a envelop to use whenever I like to it’s just a little addition on your page. I am a hugh sucker for flowers and especially the ones by 49 and Market because they fit so amazingly well with all the Maja Design papers.

As a finishing touch I added some wax on my white flowers so they blend in a little more. Thank you so much for visiting the blog today. And I will be back posting in two weeks on my normal post day the previous post was Lenet her day that I used because I could not wait anymore to post lol…

Love
