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 

Congratulations

Hi everyone! I hope you all are fine. I am back with a late night card. This time I have made a frame card with the gorgeous papers from the Vintage Summer Basics Collection. The paper you can spot the best on the card is called 1933 (with flowers).

I have painted this Sitting Tilda from Magnolia with Distress Ink, reinkers and Markers, to match the papers. I think both colours and papers fit so well together.

Inside the frame I have cut out a bird house from the papersheet called 1925. The same paper I have used on the base on the card.

The text “Gratulerer” on top of the card is made from a die from Papirdesign, and means “Congratulations”.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have painted the flowers and papers with White Gesso, to give the card a more shabby look.

Under you can see how I have put the card together, as I have first made the frame, and then fasten it to the card.

Thats all from me tonight! Stay safe!

With love,

Sweet May Memories

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.

For this card  I used the of Denim and Girls and the Monochromes Shades of Denim

Dies I used  are The postage stamp frame from TimHoltz and the word Baby is a die from Marianne Design.

The little chipboard hearts come from a set of Maya Road I colored and glittered them withsome embossingpowder.

Welcome dear creative Maja friends!

Today a mixed media layout in shabby chic style as memory on wonderful days

with our little sunshine ‘Filou’ by the sea.

I was inspired to create a maritim inspired layout,

where I used some wooden shapes (Calico Craft Parts), cutting dies,

origin beach sand and self-assembled shells :-).

used paper collections

 

as background paper Monochromes – Shades of Celebration – Vintage Teal

for cutting and embossing elements Mono Celebration Pearl

Denim-P

‘Streetware’

 Vintage-Summer-Basics-P

 

‘1905’

some close up’s¬†

 a photo cutout backed with three punched flags

¬† I used a 3D embossing folder ‘Flourish’ (Sizzix) as amazing waves

¬†behind the photo you can see a rising sun made with 3D Impresslits ‘Radiant’ (Sizzix)

 

 sand, shells, jute and some driftwood were all glued on with Heavy Gel Medium (DecoArt)

I wanted a weathered look for the four edges, so I used some remnants

 of punched out forms,

after gluing I painted over the edges of the pages

with a white thin crackle medium and palette knife.

Thanks for your visit!

Happy Summertime!

Kerstin
