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

For a couple of years newborn photoshoots have been immensely popular and no wonder they have – babies grow up so fast and we have just a couple of weeks to take such photos, which makes them even more precious. I regret that when my kids were born such photoshoots were rare, but it makes me so happy when I have a chance to scrapbook a photo of such a tiny human being 🙂 Here’s one such layout I made:

I used a mixture of collections to match the blue shades of the photo, and combined it with soft beige and gold for a delicate baby layout.

First, I applied the stars pattern upon the background paper using a stencil, and when the pearl paste was dry, I added gold metallic stars over some of the stars:

I arranged the title by mixing chipboard letters with a piece of a signature strip from one of the papers:

I used some more pieces from signature strips as a kind of journaling:

…or as a decorative border across the page 🙂

To finish the layout off, I used scraps of various papers to make a banner garland under the photo:

I really love the way the layout turned out, soft and gentle like the baby sleeping in the photo 🙂

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stencil, stamps, embossing powder, chipboard: Agateria; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; star punch: DpCraft

 

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

Live in the moment

The chipboards I used are from Scrapaholics.

 

I love the strips at the bottom of the papers , the have nice  quotes , sentiments or are just beautiful decorated.

You can use them in your work like I did in this layout , so no waste of precious paper.

I hope you like this layou out and that it gives you some inspiration.

 Hi there lovely friends,

Welcome to the blog today for this post I made two cards with some amazing 2Crafty Chipboard pieces. I made them in two different shades one in teal/aqua and the other one in darkpink/licht pink. For these cards I have used two collections of Maja Design papers.

My/Your Daydream:

 I treated the chipboard with flat fabio’s {danny zuko’s denim} twice and then I used three different waxes on them and cut them in two parts to place them in my flower cluster after they where all dried up. In the end I used some nuvo crystal drops on the circles. The Cards are made out of three layers that I distressed around the edges.

On the background of my layers I added a stencil and some spray.

Hello lovely Maja Design friends,

Happy 1st of August I am so grateful you are here with us today, for today I have another layout to share with you. Lately I really love to use a little mixed media on my layouts like combining the very romantic stuff with a darker twist to it. This time I made all the beautiful chipboard pieces black which I later on painted to my likes. For this layout I used a picture of both our kids {Kevin & Abbey} Kevin was reading a book and I thought it was so sweet that I took a picture. 

Today was Just Adorable:

All the pretty chipboard are treated with a layer of black gesso. Then I used several waxes and a dabber brush to make it look like real metal. In the end I added some color with acrylic paints to match my beautiful Maja Design papers. For my layout I have used the “Miles Apart” collection and a new mould to frame my sweet picture with. For the background I have used a stencil and some sprays.

 Hello and a big warm welcome. Today I am here to share my newest design team project. I have been working on this one for a while and have finally found a little time over the weekend to add the finishing touches. I hope you love it as much as I did creating it.
I have titled this project “Moments”.
This scrapbooking layout features my gorgeous eldest daughter at her formal a few years ago now. I have so many photos from her school formal. I am so very glad that I took as many photos as I did. As soon as laid eyes on the gorgeous “Miles Apart” collection I instantly new that I would be using these  photos. They are the perfect fit. Below are the three sheets from the collection that I used to create my base page with.

Close at Heart – Miles Apart

This piece was used as my background base. It was primed with clear gesso and I added in some stencilling using a 3D texture paste over the paper.

Thinking of you – Miles Apart

I used the “B” side of “Thinking of you” for the matting of my photos and I cut the floral elements from the “A” side .

Ephemera – Miles Apart

I also used some of the elements from the Ephemera Sheet of Miles apart to help embellish my page.

 

 

 

 

I have also used chipboards from Dusty Attic to create a frame to the left of the page. These chipboards were primed with Stamperia Primer. I then added in some dimension over the chipboards using Liquid Pearls. These were allowed to dry and then I painted over the top of them again. I added in some highlighting using Viva Decors 3D Stamp Paints in Silver.

To the right of the layout I used a wooden embellishment from iCraft Australia. This was dressed the same as the chipboard frame. Over this piece I added in a handmade “X” mould. This was also dressed in white gesso with highlights of the Stamp Paint in Silver.

Once all the photos, chipboard and wooden embellishments were adhered I went to work on embellishing my page using the gorgeous Blush flowers from 49andMarket. I added in a little hand made heart from paper clay. Some flower pearls and string pearls were adhered in amongst the flower clusters along with wood wool and the fussy cut floral elements. I added in some Nuvo Glitter Accents over the elements to help them shimmer and shine a little more. Lastly I added in some handmade paper laces that you can see at the sides of the layout.
Well I hope you have enjoyed my post here today.
Thankyou so much for popping by.
Until next time take care and happy scrapping.
