Goodmorning lovely Maja Fans,

Are you enjoying the spring weather…here in The Netherlands we had some pretty sunny days but that is over now, sadly but hopefully soon we can enjoy the sun again. For today I have a layout to share. Two weeks ago my computer died on me and I could not post my project {sorry for that} but now my husband fixed that and I can edit my work again yeah. This layout is made with two collections “Celebration” & “Denim and Friends” and Camilla her lovely daughter Freja <3 is on the picture.

On the beackground of my layout I added the pretty waterdrops stamp by Gabrielle Pollacco {still one of my favorite stamps sets ever} but before I added that stamp I used two other stamps to one crackle and one script stamp. After prepairing my background I treated my chipboard pieces with several acrylic paints layered on top of each other to get a worndown look.

After I treated the chipboards I added my flower clusters. Then I took my photograph and layered it on two sheets of the 6×6 paper pads then I placed it on top of the chipboard frame to get more dimension.  At the end I took out a letter sticker sheet from webster pages and made the word bliss and in that corner I placed a metal piece.

At the end I used some of my white spray and gesso to lighten up my flowers and papers…but I also added some art stones and some sea shells. I think that is it on how I created this layout. I had a lot of fun also because we have a son and I really enjoy making layouts with girls being the focal point.

Maja Design papers used: Celebration: Glamour bs & Champagne bs, Denim & Friends: Streetwear bs.

    

Thank you very much for your visit, I hope I have inspired you to go and create something beautiful with your Maja papers. Have a wonderful & sunny day!

Love xoxo

Hello.  Jennifer Snyder here to share a touch of Spring.
It’s April on the calendar, however there is still snow where I live.  I need spring cards to help keep my hope alive.
Helping keep the hope for spring alive at my house is the gorgeous Celebration 12×12 collection from Maja Design.
These are the papers I am using:
Celebration Collection – Congratulations
Celebration Collection – Entertainment
Celebration Collection – Festivities
The designs from this collection range from bold to delicate. It’s such a versatile collection.  As you can see, I am using the soft and delicate papers for this card.
I added some chipboard from Creative Embellishments for additional accenting.

 Here is one last look at the finished card.

 

 Thanks for visiting today.
 

 

 

Count your blessings

Hello Maja freinds,

My turn again t make a blogpost and bring you something to inspire you .

This time I made you a dangletag. I came across this I dea on pinterest and just fell in love with it.

I had to make one.

 

For this project I used the 15×15 paperpad from the Celebration collection ,I love the pretty faces of the ladies they really need a nice frame.

The frame I used is from Prima marketing and did some gilding on it with gilding flakes from Nuvo .

I used two colors  and rubbed some walnutstain distress ink over it to give it a vintage feel.

The flowers are from Prima marketing and wild orchid.

I cut an extra piece  at the same width as the tag  decorated it and hung it underneath with some jumprings.

Used some very nice chippies from crapininiec  and added some pearls on it.

I really loved making this tag hope I inspired you with it to make your own .

Let’s Celebrate!

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to our blog!

Today I am going to celebrate with you 🙂 And therefore I have some birthday cards:

And what better collection to use for such festive cards than our own Celebration? 🙂 I mixed papers from the regular and small pads.

 

The first card features a sweet cupcake:

I layered purple and beige papers and used the rich dark brown floral paper for the background, matting the die-cut cupcake with a contrasting sand Monochrome sheet. I added matching polka dot ribbon and a metal charm in the shape of a teapot. Here’s the birthday tea party 🙂

The stamped sentiment says in Polish: A lot of happiness and sweetness. How fitting!

 

For the second card I used a dreamcatcher motif:

For this card I selected the blue papers of the collection and composed the dreamcatcher combining a doily and feather dies:

I also added vintage ribbon and a button and finished off the design with gem stones, pearls and glitter:

 

I made the third card to…well, use up the leftovers 😉

I used the tiniest bits to punch the doily border and die-cut the banners. Then I used larger pieces to make the background:

The patterned papers make the beauty of the card, so other decorative elements include only flowers, pearl border and some delicate stamping:

 

Here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Marianne Design, X-cut; punch: Martha Stewart; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; stamps: Lemonade, the ScrapBerry’s; bling, pearls: Creative Expressions; glitter: Ranger, Nuvo.

 

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

Welcome creative friends!

Kerstin is back with a new springtime layout.

After a very long cold period, it finally gets warmer and the daffodils in my garden start to bloom. I love this time, finally, more sun shines again and gives hope for new life. There is a lot to do in the garden right now, but you should also let all five go straight and just enjoy this short time.

This time I used a monochrome paper as background, I love this neutral papers because

you will have so many opportunities to create a selfmade mixed media background.

I used a brick stencil with white gesso, old music paper sheets, stamps, leftovers from craft paper,

Glimmer Mist Spray (Sunflower) from Tattered Angels, Distress Ink Stain from Ranger,

paper frames from La Blanche and wonderful flowers from 49 and Market.

some details

I hope you like this little spring layout inspiration

with monochrome paper from the ‘Shades of Celebration’ collection,

I will return on 18th of April with a

Tutorial 🙂

Happy crafting!
