Hello Maja Friends, it’s Elena here to share several cards I made playing with the purple hues.


Each time the leaves left the trees, and the landscape is dull and grey around, I start to look for some bright colors, and I’ve noticed each November I turn to lilac and purple hues.


For my cards I used Enjoying Outdoors collection, so rich and so beautiful for the mature Autumn Season.


I made a lot f die cutting and used the pearlescent gold and white cardstock for my die cuts


They pop up on the purple background, you can notice


However I added the white and pale pink flowers, I wanted my cards to be feminine and soft


I made 3 more cards using the other one sketch


But actually I used the same die shapes for my paper layering


I like adding the pearls as the finish touch to my frames




I hope you have liked my cards. It’s was difficult to stop creating only one or two.


Products used:

Spellbinders Dies, Petallo Flowers, Prima Marketing Flowers

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new set of cards featuring one of my favorite collection Enjoying Outdoors.

Lavender Card by Pascale B.

Making cards is a good way to get rid of all the leftovers of papers you have accumulated over the past months or should I say years. I don’t know how you keep them, but I found that keeping them in a pocket with the collection is the best way to use them. When I was first starting scrapbooking I put all the leftovers together, but when I wanted one, well, I never found the right one! Now I know that if I don’t find it, it’s because I don’t have it and I will have to cut some beautiful paper! Let see how I made these cards!

Even if both cards look different, the way I made them is the same. First, I chose in my leftover from the Enjoying Outdoors collection, which one I could use. When I didn’t find the right one, My next move is to look in the 6×6 paper pad.

When I found all the scraps of paper I needed, I inked the edges to add some contrast before gluing them directly to the card base.

I die cut some leaves in two green papers from the collection and I inked the edges.

Then I added a few flowers.

On this card, I even added some lavender sprigs from my garden. To prevent them from falling apart when they dried, I covered them with gel medium.

And to finish the layout of the cards I added some microbeads.

Hello, I’m Pascale B. from France.
Since I began to scrap, flowers are part of my layouts, and I gradually started to use mixed media as well. I don’t know how to define my style, perhaps something like free vintage shabby style could be a good definition.

Goodmorning lovelies,

Today I have a another layout to share for this layout I used two pretty Maja Design collections “Enjoying Outdoors” & “Summer Crush” because both collections had the colors that I wanted to use for it which are purple/pink/peachy tones. This time I used another picture of Camilla her precious twins singing like two little diva’s. My post was for last Friday but I was really busy adding this video so I was not ready in time so I stole this Monday to post with approval of Camilla ofcours hihihi.


Oh this was such a fun layout to make I do have my favorite Maja Design collections and those are not on top of my list but I have to say I think now I will take them out more often. With my precious 49 and Market flowers it is easy to transform your layout in a flowers sea of gorgeousness. As you will see in my video I made this layout through out the day as the light changes during the movie. Have fun watching 😉

Hope you enjoyed my second video ever thank you so much for watching now for the closeups:




Don’t you just love these colors together I love the purple and pink /peachy but I never use them like this. I do intent to get out my green/blue papers and flower more do not know why that is tho…..although purple is my favorite color I almost never use it lol




On this layout I did some watercoloring but not with a brush but with a piece of plastic….the finishing touches that I have done on this layout are not in my video as I do intent to alter my layout when it is already finished {before I take my pictures}




Maja Design papers used:

Summer Crush: Met her at the dance & He gives her flowers

Enjoying Outdoors: Having tea in the sun & Time for reflection

Hello my dear friends and happy Sunday to all!

It’s Mary here with you today and I want to share with you my latest layout made with papers from the ”Enjoying Outdoors” collections.

A soft romantic layout in purple and earth tones that was inspired by the beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.


I used for my background the ”Flourishing” paper from the ”Enjoying Outdoors” collection. I also used some tags and a journaling card from the ”Tags & Journaling cards” paper to mat my photo.


I primed my background with clear gesso and when it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I colored my page using Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays ”Tea Pot Purple” and ”Pegleg Pete Purple”.


I heat embossed the ”Fishing Net Bit” chipboard with ”Pop Rock Purple” Lindy’s embossing powder. The title was also embossed with the ”Angel Wings Mauve” powder. All the chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers and embellishments are Prima Marketing. The flair is from Cuts2luv.


To finish my page, I added a few shells in my clusters and some licorice glass beads with gel medium.


Papers used:


That’s all for today, my friends!

Thank you for stopping by!

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout. I used both the Enjoying Outdoors and the Vintage Romance collections. I chose a photo of my grandfather and his brother.

Brothers by Pascale B.

I primed the background with clear gesso. Then I added a design with a doily stencil and white gesso. When dry, I added a second design with another stencil and a metallic acrylic paint.

Then I cut the background into four pieces and glued them on another paper.

Brothers by Pascale B.

I cut a few papers from the 6×6 paper pack from both collections to add under the photo. I die cut some leaves in a watercolor paper and colored them with Glimmer Glam and acrylic paint.

I added a few flowers as well as some doily’s pieces.
