Goodmorning lovelies,

Today I am up on this lovely blog using my precious Maja Design papers. In my last post I added some questions and I will give you those answers in my August 11th post, the same as I give you my tutorial that day. Sorry for that but I had to deal with some serious personal issues so I have not been scrapbooking as much as I wanted to. Today we will be leaving for our well deserved vacation trip for the next seven day we will be enjoying each others company at a camping ground in the south of our little country we are very excited as you can imagine…, for this post I made a 8×8 layout using only Maja Design papers, dies and a flair.


That sweet picture I got from pinterest oh boy how I love that site…here I used several Maja Design collection such as Vintage Autumn Basics, Vintage Baby, I Wish and Vintage Summer Basics. The centers of my big flowers are made with foamballs that I glued on and dipped in mini prills such a lovely effect that has.



On the background I added some spray’s, stamp and paste. But I also stamped the word sweet on the picture I really do love Gabi her word stamps. What I do when making a layout with just paper and dies….firstly I will cut all the dies that I want to use in different colors then I will make the flowers and their centers and put those together.




Then I it is really easy to make it into one whole piece that you like. At the moment I am totally hooked on the amazing flairs by Cuts2luv that I will use it on almost every single project I make. I wetted my papers to disstress is a little more at the edges I also inked the edges first before I did that.

Thank you for visiting the blog today and I would like to wish you all a wonderful weekend, vacation time and so much more. Hopefully I will see to back on my next post 😉

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the I Wish collection even if we are not in winter. I chose a photo I’ve taken during my trip in Prague of the “Horse” from David Černý: a statue of St Wenceslas riding his dead horse upside-down.

I primed the background with clear gesso. When dry, I added a design with a stencil and clear crackle paste which I let dry naturally.

In the meantime, I die cut a few leaves on a watercolor paper and I colored them with differents Twinkling H2Os. I sprayed some flowers with a gold shimmer.

Next, I colored the design area with different Twinkling H2Os

I cut a few papers to add under the photo and I glued the flowers and leaves.

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. Visit me at www.pbhobby.blogspot.com

Perfect Moment You and Me

Goodmorning & happy Friday Maja Fans,

Today I am futuring Camilla her beautiful girls on a 12 by 12 layout using the two Maja Design collections “I Wish” & “Summertime” I really love to combine those two. I took the brown out of the first collection and the blues from the second to compliment their pretty dresses. This layout has some playful circles {which would totally fit with the sweet girls on the picture} on them and some lovely flowers by Petaloo and My Little Birdy, I also added some new Dusty Attic chipboard designs.


I had a lot of fun using a bunch of mixed media products on my layout like sprays, stamps especially the stamps by Gabrielle Pollacco from 49 and Market. Don’t you just love this picture?? Camilla you have such lovely girls kind of jealous with a teenager boy in my household lol….




I also used a new stencil by Dusty Attic to compliment my layout and some blue spray by Lindy’s and prills…all the stitch parts are with a sewing machine but the stitches on the picture are by hand.




Maja Design papers used: I wish: for frosty mornings, those memories will last, you a Happy New Year. Summertime: Gives me joy, Die Cuts.



Thank you so much for stopping by I hope you enjoyed my post today, and I have inspired you to play with your lovely Maja Design goodies have a lovely weekend…..

Hello, Rachelle here with my last LO, until October. I take the summer months off, to work or play, in our garden. In about 3 weeks, I should be able to start planting, plus I will be a grandmother, first grandchild, so it is going to be another, great, busy summer…..


The Maja Design used:

I Wish


I wish those memories would last

Coffee in the Arbour


Smell of Coffee-BS

Other elements used: 49 and Market Rustic Blooms:Rustic Melon and Burlap, Rustic Green-Small, Rustic Medium ,Burlap Trim, Dusty Attic Chipboard: Anchors, Mini Seagulls, Seagrass small, Seagulls, Fishnet Panel, String Frames small, Compass Rose, Treat Box words, Wordpl@y #7, ….corrugated paper, clear gesso, clear crackle, cloth covered wire, cheesecloth, sea shells, jump rings, Prills-A penny saved, Prima Mini Art Stones, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist-Aquamarine, LuminArt-Silks-Iridescent gold, Iridescent Copper, Teal Zircon, Shimmerz-Butter Cream, Versa Mark Ink Pad-Bark, Pebbles Metallic Chalk

Here are some close ups….


My inspiration of the paper layers, came from the boat. I used the 2 sheets of the Maja papers, distressed the edges & used the corrugated paper in the layers. I rubbed in some of the pebbles metallic chalk, to deepen the color of the smell of coffee sheet. The corrugated paper was painted with the Teal Silk, then toned down with the Shimmerz Butter Cream….


I died the cheese cloth with the Tattered Angel- Aquamarine & used it in the flower clusters. In this cluster I used the 49 and Market Rustic Blooms, DA Seagrass, seashells, cloth covered wire

I primed all of the chipboard with clear gesso, & only used the clear crackle on the seagulls. For the cooper I rubbed on & inked the edges of the chipboard, with the bark- inkpad, then painted it with the iridescent copper. For the teal, I used the Teal Silk & toned it down with the Shimmerz- butter cream. Once the crackle dried on the seagulls, I painted them with white gesso, then the iridescent gold silk….


I cut the I wish sheet in three pieces, trimmed off a bit, to see the under layer. I distressed the edges & cross stitched these pieces together….




I glued the photo onto a piece a heavy cardstock, then onto the burlap trim & corrugated paper. I framed it with the DA String frame, that I wrapped around with the cloth covered wire & jump rings.

Here are a few more close ups…




Thank you so much for taking the time to look, & I will see you in the fall….Rachelle
