Welcome Maja friends!

Today a season inspired layout, Autumn is the best time to go on a discovery tour through the forest and to rustle in the fragrant autumn leaves.

 

I used the background paper ‘Birch’ from Maja Design collection ‘Walking in the forest’.

What can be better than a wonderful walk through a colourful forest

in your favourite pair of jeans?!

used papers

 I was inspired to make a natural rustic style layout. 

For that I also worked with papers from our Denim & Friends paper collection, with corrugated cardboard, blue color shades and suitable autumn chipboards, wooden shapes and embellishments.

Enjoy your day!

Hello Maja fans!

It’s Mary here with you today and I have a new layout to share made for my September inspiration.

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across with that amazing photo. I choose some papers from the gorgeous ”Denim & Friends” collection that was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

As my main paper I used the ”Stonewashed” and I made some layers behide my photo with the ”Paisley”, the ”Leather” and both sides of the ”Summer Shirt” papers. To start, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil.

Then  I used Lindy’s Gang spray to color my page and made some stamping here and there.

I heat embossed the Dusty Attic chipboards with Stampendous embossing enamels and then I randomly rubbed some wax to highlight them a little bit more.

When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and I made the final touch with some splatters with white gesso.

 

Papers used:

 

That’s all for today, my friends!

Thank you for stopping by!

 

 

Hello Baby Girl

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

Recently I got some cutest photos of my cousin’s precious baby girl and of course I couldn’t resist making layouts with some of them 😉 And for my today’s post I’m sharing one of those pages:

I chose the beautiful Marriage Proposal paper from the Vintage Romance collection for my background. I added some colour along the border with Distress ink and then stamped peony silhouettes:

I matted the photo with pieces from the Sofiero and Denim&Friends collections that matched the photo colour scheme. Then I added my floewr cluster mimicking the one in the picture:

I extended it into a cascade blending into the stamped pattern and glitter-covered chipboard flourishes:

I composed the title using epoxy and paper stickers. Then I added some sequins and gemstones as the finishing touch:

I mounted the layers of papers on pieces of cardboard (great way to use up delivery boxes 😉 ) so they don’t look flat against the flowers. And I really love the dimension it gives!

What do you think?

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Altenew; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; stickers: American Crafts, Piątek Trzynastego; chipboard: Miszmasz Papierowy; Distress inks, glitter: Ranger; sequins, bling: my stash.

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and keep dropping by for more inspiration every day!

Jennifer Snyder here to present with a  get-well card made from Maja Design’s fabulous  Denim & Friends collection.

This collection is one of my favorites for layering.  The patterns and florals combined with the blues and soft browns in this collection make this versatile for both men’s and women’s cards.
These are the papers I used from the collection:
Summer Shirt
Stonewashed
Paisley
This is a closer look at the layers of the card as well as the sentiment.
I added a piece of fun foam under the sentiment piece to give a little volume and dimension.
The sentiment stamp is from JustRite Papercrafts.

Maja Design has introduced a solid collection to coordinate with the Denim & Friends collection.  It’s called Monochrome – Shades of Denim and it is a set of solid colors that are custom selected for the Denim & Friends papers.

One last view of the complete card.

 Have a wonderful day.

Another card for a man

Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer with you today and I am sharing another card for a man, that I have created for you. There are many more new collections released after this one, but I am still itching to get my hands on it and play with it over and over.

some close ups for you: 

love to use chipboard, black and metal accents, some transparencies, die cutting in kraft and black yardstick. What do you love to incorporate into your men’s card?

The coolest Denim and Friends collection:

Have a lovely day,
