 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.

 

  

some close up’s

other materials:

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

Modeling paste, Mini Art Stones (Prima Marketing) ; Distress ink (Ranger)

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.

Miles Apart Wedding Card

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

As you can easily tell by the titlte, I bring you a wedding card today that I made using the latest Maja release, the Miles Apart collection:

You most definitely know that Miles Apart papers feature some beautiful and romantic flower patterns that are just perfect for occasions like a wedding. But this time instead of putting those gorgeous flowers in the card background, I took inspiration from them and tried to recreate the bouquet ON the card. And so I chose delicate light papers for the background and added a flower cluster that imitates the patterned papers:

To the rose bouquet I added die-cut leaves, crystal gems and some chipboard ornaments. Vintage ribbon and enamel dots complete the design:

Just look how nicely dimensional it turned out!

…which means it needed a box too 🙂 I decorated it with washi tape with rose pattern – a perfect match!

What do you think? I must say I’m quite satisfied 🙂

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Magnolia; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon: Na Strychu; chipboard: Scrapiniec, Wycinanka.pl; gems: my stash.

See you soon!

Best Friends – Shadowbox Home Decor

 Hello.  Jennifer Snyder here today to share a sweet project made using Maja Design’s  newest collection, “Miles Apart”.   
 
I primarily used the “Miles Apart” 6×6 paper pad to “dress” the Julie Nutting paper dolls in my shadow box.  The background of the shadow box is the only 12×12 piece I used from the collection.  This sheet is call “A Phone Call”.  
 
Below is an image of the collection.  It’s soft and beautiful with delicate prints. 

 

Here are some simple instructions on how I made this sweet shadowbox using the new Carter and Carly doll stamps from Prima and Julie Nutting.
First,  I wanted Carter’s tire swing to actually move so I cut two layers to use as a sandwich, and added hemp string.
Next I stapled the string to the wooden box.  No worries because we will be covering and hiding the staples.

 

I added ribbon around the box to decorate but mostly to cover the staples.
Meet Carly.  She looks adorable in the Maja Design papers.  Plus the 6×6 prints are perfectly sized for the dolls.
I cut two layers to make her more durable especially because I am going to be bending the doll so she can sit.

 

I added a few finishing touches.  Carly and her doll are accented in gems from Buttons Galore.  These are from the new Doo Dadz collections.
Next, Carter had to put his baseball mitt down so he could swing.  The mitt is a 3D button also from Buttons Galore.

 

Thank you for stopping here today.  The new collection has shipped and should be showing up in stores soon.  You can check the store finder list for vendors.
Happy crafting.

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 😉

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.

 Maja Design papers used: Nyhavn – Sitting at the dock, Little street Cafe – Feeling good and the greens from Miles Apart – Stay Creative & Be Safe.

   

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
