Hello Maja Friends,

Few days ago it was raining and it was a good chance to spend time creating the cards.

To create the cards I used my favorite color combo, the papers from Crea Die collection

I used only one paper sheet but mixed it backside several times

I die cut it, dry embossed and embellished with beautiful Petaloo flowers

Goodmorning & happy Friday Maja Fans,

Today I have a layout to share with you all in honor of being a mom. In life we all want our kids to grow up and be amazing young people and trust in what they can achieve…..Our boy is a charming 12 year old kiddo and I love him to the moon and back. Yesterday was a disaster day of creating that I tore a whole layout apart and threw it away! Am I the only one? Or are there more of you that have that sometimes. A couple of day’s ago I also deleted all my inbox messages from my hotmail too….so I think I am having a bad week lol. Hopefully all will get better soon so I don’t feel like I do now which is rushed…

I used the pretty Nyhavn sheet as my background and added two other colors to make the picture pop of my layout. It’s totally a different style then what I was creating before I trew it away….because that was all pink and girly. I really love to create with pink but this time it didn’t work at all. I used some stencils on my background with some black paste this time.

All the chipboard peices are treated with ink, spray’s, acrylic paint and embossing powder and they are all by Dusty Attic. I also added a flair too I am totally hooked on those at the moment.

The flowers I used are from three different companies which are 49 and Market, Petaloo and Prima. I love making flower clusters like these. They add so much to your page at least that is what I think do you agree with me??

Goodmorning lovelies,

It’s such a blessing to post on this blog and today I am here to show you two tall cards I created with a bunch of Maja Design collections. I don’t even know how many of them because both cards made out of leftover papers I really enjoy using my scraps every once in a while! I really enjoy the month March not only because it was my birthday {and hubby’s too} yesterday but I really love how spring is sneaking up on us. Did you see the gorgeous spring mood board yesterday on the blog? If not please check the ladies made some pretty amazing work on that mood board wow…..

First card is called “Hello Love” and this card has at least three collections in it like “Enjoying Outdoors”, “Vintage Spring Basics” & can you see the other one? These cards are all made with dies so you can really see the beautiful Maja Design collections at it’s best.

Second card is called “Groovy Summer” I really am longing for Summer since this is my most favorite season of the year but here in The Netherlands that will take some time before we can put our winter coats away sadly. This card is made with just one collection which is one of my all time favorites “Life by the Sea” both cards are the same size about 8,5″ inches tall and 4,5″ inches wide.

The Wishing Hand

Hello Sweeties,

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a photo I’ve taken in Dublin of “The Wishing Hand”, an enormous bronze hand sculpture designed by Linda Brunker.

The Wishing Hand by Pascale B.

To make my background, I added first some paints on a stencil before applying it on the paper. When the stencil was still on the paper, I added some crackle paste.

When everything was dry I added some gray colors to the background.

As usual I used the Twinkling H2Os to color the leaves and the gray flowers, and I sprayed the purple ones with  a Primary Element.

I added some glass beads and micro beads to finish the layout.
