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

Spring seems to have settled for good, with the sun appearing for longer, birds chirping and flowers starting to bloom. Therefore I had no choice but to bring you a cheerful layout today 🙂

Doesn’t she look like the lady spring herself?

I made the layout using the Miles Apart collection, which is just perfect for delicate, girly projects due to a selection of soft pinks nad greens and flowery patterns. I layered several pieces of various papers, added hand cut tags, flower clusters and some embellishments.

I arranged the title with sticker alphabet letters and die-cut words:

The clear gems I used to finish off the page and the glitter words of the title glimmer beautifully against the light, adding to the lightness of the page:

I really like the way it turned out, delicate and joyful like the sunny spring day 🙂

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Kesi’Art; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; clock face: Maya Road; sticker alphas: October Afternoon; butterfly: UHK Gallery; wing: my stash.

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and have a Happy Easter!

Hello Sweet Maja fans,

Lenet here and today I bring you this  layout made with the beautiful papers of the tropical garden collection.

 

For this layout I did some fussy cutting , I cut both the  birds out of the Cockatoo sheet .

 

And I cut some flowers from the  Exotic plants sheet to tuck them behind  the birds and made a cluster with them in the right uppercorner of the picture.

The purple bird you see here Is cut out of the diecuts sheet.

 

The chippies I used are from  Scrapaholics And I colored them with  tim Holtz distress embossing powder.

I hope you like this layout I made for you.

Thank you for visiting and hope to see you back.

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

Easter is coming soon, so it’s high time to share some card inspiration for the occasion 🙂 For my first cards this year I chose spring flowery backgrounds to emphasize the joy of this important celebration!

I made both cards using the Miles Apart collection that with its beautiful patterns and cheerful soft colours is just perfect for the purpose 🙂

For the first cards I used the green-white-gold combo, with the Easter Lamb as the focal point, and added some mini flowers to match the flowers in the background paper:

For the second card I added some juicy pink magenta to the colour palette and decorated the stamped and embossed Easter song quotation with chipboard filigree Easter eggs and mini flowers cluster:

I really love how the papers accent the character of the holiday, and adding gold to cheerful green and pink gave the cards elegant festive look.

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: CreaLies; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; stamps, chipboard, ep: Agateria.

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you soon!

Greetings Maja Design friends.  Jennifer Snyder here to share a slice of spring (on a card).  I thought I would pull out one of my favorite collections, “Little Street Cafe” to bring the golden warmth to the project.

Truly an magnificent collection with it’s rich golds, yellows, rose and creams.  These are the papers I used: “Sunshine”, “Feeling Good” plus the “blackberry” solid from the Shades of Cafe, coordinating monochrome collection.

.

 

The dies used on the card are new from Spellbinders, Garden Favorites collection.  They look fabulous with the gold patterned paper.

Thank you for sharing your time here today.  Happy crafting.

Loving These Moments With You

Goodmorning lovely Maja Designs fans,

I am so sorry for my absence lately, life is just so extremely busy. Abbey is growing up so fast and Kevin just turned seventeen last month. I am still busy creating and loving everything about it but making blog posts takes a lot of time which is precious to me. So I will try to keep up with them from now on, hopefully all goes well with you all and you are not to dissapointed in me.

Loving These Moments With You: 

I wrinkled my papers to give it more depth & demension.
I used five different sheets from the “Bohemian Harmony”collection and layered them. Then I added some stamps & a stencil by Finnabair. For this layout I used several gorgeous chippies from 2Crafty Chipboard {my new dt which I am so excited about} I all used white gesso on them. The word “shine” I just left white, and the frame had some leafy protrusions on it that I cut off and tucked in my flower clusters {and left them white also}.
I used two frames on this layout {I have a weakness for them}
The 6″Fine Heart Leaf Frame I painted in two colors to match my papers then I added a piece of paper behind it so I could add the phrase. The frame round my picture was treated with waxes {ochre & rusty brown} I also cut out a couple of flower clusters from different sheets and added them in my flower clusters & such.
On the pieces that I painted green I also added some shimmer spray to make it more blend into my layout.
I used a picture of our darling daughter Abbey last fall then I cut her out of a second picture I printed and layered it on top of the other one. For this layout I used  jute cord and cheese cloth behind my flowers and also visible on my layout.
Maja Design papers used:
Bohemian Harmony collection, Rustic flowers, Enjoy today, Feel alive, Be humble and Be honest-bs.

Thank you so much for your visit today. And I sure hope that I have inspired you to take out your lovely Maja Design papers and create and have fun while doing so. Have a blessed & sunny weekend!

Hugs
