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

Continuing the Miles Apart festival ūüėČ 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:

Other: chipboard: Scrapiniec; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; stencil: Agateria; lace, sequins: my stash.

 

After all that pain ūüėČ 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”
“Miss You”
“Stay Positive”
“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.

 

  

some close up’s

 a fitting cluster with chipboards, cutting dies, shells and a blue velvet flower
 bubble blowing with stencil and stamps

 

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.
