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

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

Since my last post the world has changed… With the war being right behind the borders of my country, it’s obvious we feel shocked, anxious, worried and uncertain. But at the same time the amount of goodness and solidarity towards attacked people is amazing, so I do believe there is still hope for humanity! Also, dire times like these make us so aware of the fact how short life is and how important is to appreciate and enjoy every little moment! And that’s what my layout I’m sharing today is about:

I made the layout the illustrate the importance of relations between people, and the fact that how we behave towards others is what defines us as human beings, and in the end it’s all we have. No money can buy the feeling of being loved and cared for.

I used the Bohemian Harmony collection as it is just perfect to express the above! Just take a look at those words printed in the background, so true and accurate:

For my title and journaling I used expressions printed on signature strips:

The I completed my design with hand-cut tags, flowers and metal embellishments:

I really hope the world would finally turn right and we all would go back to normal! So that our children can enjoy every single moment of their lives.

Here’s what I used for my page:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; metal embellishments: Mitform; sequins: my stash.

Positive Messages For Her

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

International Women’s Day that is coming in March is perhaps not much celebrated due to its historical context, but I got inspired by this date to create cards for women with positive messages, expressing support and encouraging, that can be given to any important woman in our lives 🙂

I made all the cards using the Bohemian Harmony collection that gives such a nice boho vibe to your projects! All cards feature images from the Snapshots paper as focal elements. Forn the first card I chose the beautiful image of a girl bathing in the sea in the sunset, and added a die cut sentiment and tags.

In the second card I used squares punched out of various papers to make a patchwork-like background for the image and stamped sentiments (which say: “Never give up” and “You can do it, who if not you”):

And finally the third card: I placed the image in a chipoard embossed frame and added some mini flowers that refer to the flowery background paper, and hand-cut tags. The stamped sentiment says “You are awesome”:

All the cards are perfect for any occasion, or even on no occasion! 🙂 It’s always nice to send someone a supportive message.

Here’s what I used for the cards:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Crealies, Spellbinders, Kesi’art; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard, stamps: Agateria, sequins, string: my stash.

That’s all for today, see you soon!
