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

Just like last time, today I bring you a Baptism inspiration, but this time I created a delicate baby girl exploding box:

For the box I combined the Celebration and Miles Apart collections, choosing some deliate floral patterns and neutral backgrounds:

I decorated the lid with a stamped and embossed sentiment and a flower cluster:

When you remove the lid, the box opens to reveal the inside:

I decorated the inned walls with die-cut motives, flower compositions and some stamped wishes. To add some glam, I used acrylic gems and iridescent sequins:

In the centre I put a box including a jewellery gift, but replaced the original box lid with a handmade one decorated with a die-cut doily and a signature strip pieces ūüôā The box is tied with ribbon that is attached to the exploding box bottom – this way you can remove the gift box without having to rip it off ūüėČ

I think exploding boxes are best when you need to include a small gift or money – they work as both a card and gift box ūüôā

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Agateria, Lemonade; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: Craft&You Design, Cheery Lynn Dies; gems: Marianne Design; ribbon: Rayher; sequins, string: my stash.

That’s all for today, see you next time!

 

 

Enjoy Life.

Hello Sweet Maja Fans.

Lenet here  and today I bring you this layout, made with the celebration collection.

With everything going on I think it’s very important to look for the little postiteve things and celebrate them.

that’s why I chose to use¬† the ” The more you praise and Celebrate your life , the more there is in life to celebrate ”

quote on the strip from the Champagne sheet of the celebration collection.

The picture of the little girl inspired me to make this layout. She is smelling the delicate flowers and clearly enjoys them.

one of the things that I think should be celebrated in life, the beauty of mother nature.

 

 

 

Besides the wonderful Celebration collection I used chippies from  Scrapaholics, the Lattice pieces, the Ivy Vine Spray set,  and the Enjoy Life sentiment from  The Life Moments set.I colored them with  Embossing poweder from WOW and distress embossingpowder from ranger/ TimHoltz.

The flowers are from 49 And Market. The flatback button with the butterfly I made myself with the Button Press from WeR.

Thank you for visiting , hope you like my layout.

Stay Safe and hope to see you back.

 

 

 

I Love You Lil’ Darlin

 Goodmorning Lovely Maja Design Fans,

Today it’s my turn again on this lovely blog and this time I’d like to share a steampunk layout. On the picture you see¬† my handsome husband with our tiny little girly in the shower. I don’t know why I assosiate black with steampunk but I do, I used one of the darkest pages Maja Design offers to make this layout. The papers are distressed and I added a Finnabair stencil on it and a script stamp.

When I could choose my Guest Designer Package I was focussed on the black lace, flowers, butterflies and chunky glitter glass and went around that creating my layout. The beautiful boards are treated with some different mediums…I used Finnabair rust effect paste, waxes and black gesso on some of them and on the other pieces I used some lindy’s sprays and a script stamp.

I think the pretty hinges are so cool to used they are very detailed and I have to tell you I am a sucker for chipboards like that kind of steampunk stylish. For me this layout is kind of clean and simple and that is sometimes nice to make as well if I had more flowers I would have added them all lol….

I have tucked the lace in the rips that I made in the papers I always wanted to try that but I never did…To finish my layout I added some amazing black chunky glitter glass and I also added some rub-on words.

Maja Design papers used: Celebration: Ephemera bs & Vintage Summer Basics 1912 bs.

  

Thank you so much for visiting the blog today and I hope I have inspired you to create and show us your beautiful art you can always share your work here: Maja Design Facebook page and I if you like the products I worked with please visit here!

Have a wonderful day & stay safe hugs!

Goodmorning amazing Maja Design Fans,

I am so happy that you find the time to visit our blog today, here in The Netherlands they just decided to have a hard lockdown due covid-19, I personally think that it’s way to late but who am I right? Luckily in my line of work {optician} we can still be open and help the people who need to see but for my husband it’s a whole other story but he can still go to work but we don’t know for how long. Well enough of the covid-19…..today I’d like to show you another layout that I made with two gorgeous collections “Celebration”& “Nyhavn”

This was a fun and easy page to make also because I don’t have many pictures with snow in it….only when Kevin was a cute little boy. For the bottom part of my layout I used the Nyhavn sheet called sitting at the dock which is one of my all time favorites and for the upper part I used the ephemera sheet of Celebration. At that first sheet I used a awesome winter background stamp by studio light with some stazon jet black ink I stamped randomly, then for the upper part I used a stencil by the dusty attic of stars.

The frame around the picture is also by the dusty attic as is the word childhood. With this layout I will be entering two challenges one is a moodboard of winter and the other one is of childhood & to add some gold. The leaves you see on my layout are dies by cheery lynn designs which I cut out from the Maja Designs monochromes and then treated with lindy’s stamp gang sprays.

I added different golden elements on my layout as glitter glass, gold sprays & finnabair wax on the art pebbles as the finishing touch I added some true snow by arleene’s and some butterflies of the coffee in the arbour collection. I also added some flatbackpearls on the frame.

Maja Design papers used: Celebration Ephemera bs, Nyhavn sitting at the dock bs, Mono White Sand bs of the sofiero & Coffee in the Arbour butterflies are free.

   

Thank you so much for being here with us today I hope you like my work… and we would love it if you share your work with us at the Maja Design Facebookpage …..stay safe & healthy…… Love

Goodmorning Maja Design fans,

If you visit the blog regularly you know I love making layouts! I have wanted to scrap this picture for a while now but that mini princess is making it a little difficult to scrap sometimes and I have to find time {while she is sleeping} to create because I really need it. We went to a photographer to make this picture because I wanted one with the four of us in it to put on a canvas to hang on my wall and so we did and I am very happy with it….look at that masculine son of us isn’t he handsome? I really love my little family <3

For this layout I used the pretty ‘Celebration’ collection and two sheets of the monochromes one of the Shades of Sofiero called white/sand and one of the Shades of Celebration called charcoal. On the background behind the pictures I used the monochromes I also used these for the flowers I made using the amazing dies by Cheery Lynn Designs which are still my favs. After having some computer problems {it crashed} oh boy how I dislike it when that happens I am back again….but due to these problems I missed two posts sorry for that….

The monochromes are amazing to make flowers with as I did in this layout…if I have time I will do a little tutorial on how to make the flowers in my layout they are super easy and quick to make. The chipboards are by The Dusty Attic and I treated them with just plain paint and some of them like the barb wire I treated with embossing powder. As you can also see in my layout I used some cheese cloth behind my picture and flowers.

To finish of my layout I added some stamps, art stones, wishing bubbles, and metal pieces and of course my favorite spray “Sidewalk Chalk” on my tittle I used some of the amazing rust paste by Finnabair. With this layout I entered in a moodboard challenge because the colors spoke to me and I knew exactly which papers I could use.

Maja Design papers used: Anniversary bs, You’re Invited, Ephemera bs, Mono Celebration-Charcoal bs, Mono White Sand

   

I hope you had fun reading my post and we do love to see your work created with the lovely Maja Design papers on the¬† Facebook site….Have a gorgeous day and I hope to see you soon….

Love
