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.

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.

Hello everyone. Tiffany Solorio here.

I have a layout to share with you. IMG_9703

I created a mixed media layout using Vintage Summer Basics for my background paper. I used some sprays, light paste and some stamps to create a mixed media background. IMG_9704

I tore some papers from the Vintage summer and Vintage Romance papers


I used an image from Enjoying the outdoors paper for my focal point. I love how all these papers go so great together even though they are not from the same collection

I hope you are inspired to create your own layout.

Shows a Flower Cluster using 49 and Market Shimmer and Shine Flowers, & Dusty Attic Tropical Foliage. I altered some of the flower centers, using Prills-Express Yourself. The Chipboard was primed with clear gesso, then I applied a thick coat of clear crackle. Once the crackle dried, I painted the pieces, with Inklings Chocolate and Diamonds, Greener Pastures, & Honeymoon, for the purple used. I used LuminArt Oyster to tone down the colors…


I also used a string of pearls in the cluster, & glued on Lavender & Lace Prills onto the tropical foliage…

Here are a few more close ups..






Thank you so much for taking the time to look…..Rachelle

Hello Sweeties,

Today, I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new mixed media layout featuring both the “Enjoying Outdoors” and the “I Wish” collections.

As usual, I primed the background with clear gesso. While it was drying, I prepared a paste with 3D Gloss Gel and the Rust and the Gold Opal Magic Mica Powders. I added a first design with this homemade paste and a stencil.

I prepared a second paste with the Rusty Red Art Alchemy and the Texture Powder: the result is a matte paste. I used a second stencil to add another design and let dry everything.

I painted the orchids with the Rusty Red paint and added more gold to them with the Gold Opal Magic. I die-cut some branches in a watercolor paper.

Orchid Beauty by Pascale B.

I colored the background with Moonshadow spray ink and Magicals to match the colors of the photo. I added also some random stamping.

I cut some papers from the I Wish collection to match and add under the photo. I glued all the embellishments with a 3D gel.
