Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

Today I’d like to share some projects I made with my lovely Maja Design papers all the flowers you will see on my projects are all hand made with dies. I love making winter projects although I dislike winter time here in The Netherlands the days are getting colder and the night longer. I love the getting cozy part but the rest not so much. My first project is a 8×8 layout made with different Maja Designs collections.

As I said I love playing with snow effects and I did that massively here on this layout…can you see which collections I have used here? Don’t you just love that picture? Although I dislike winter time I love snow and the peacefulness it brings….hope it will snow this year.

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

Did you celebrate the World Cardmaking Day last Saturday? I did, and among the cards I made I couldn’t miss using Maja papers! :) And here it is:

But this time I selected the “plain” sides of sheets, as sometimes I like them even more than the patterned ones ūüėČ I layered two sheets from the Vintage Summer Basics and I simply LOVE how this 1946 sheet gives the perfect pastel shabby background with those white lines! I’m a rather poor media user and I would never ever brush the background myself to get those lines ūüėÄ

mdsl1

I added the wreath pattern using a stencil and white texture paste, then mounted the embossed sentiment circle in the centre and surrounded it with flowers. Then I added a lace bow and some bling :)

And I really love how dimensional it turned out!

So sometimes those plain papers are as gorgeous as petterned sheets when it comes to a perfect background, don’t you think?

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stencil: Agateria; stamp: Lemonade: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; lace, bling: my stash.

 

Thank you for visiting today and see you later!

Goodmorning Maja Fans,

Autumn is upon us again and here where I live the weather is showing us all the beauty of it! Falling leaves and changing colors but also my least favorite part, the heavy wind and the rainy days. Today is a day like that and I’d love to stay in bed under the warm covers….but I have to go to work in a while! This time I’d like to share a Autumn card with you using all dies and my beautiful Maja Papers. For this card I used different collections but mostly “Walking in the Forest”! All the dies I used where cut out a couple of weeks back but I never used them. I am hooked on leaf dies because you can use them for every occasion and this time it’s a Autumn card. It was really hard to take a picture because it is very windy and I take all my pictures outside….and my card almost flew away…..glad it didn’t though.

This card was made out of leftovers it’s so much fun to sometimes dig into your stash and see what you can make with it. I had leftover papers from both of my paper design teams and every once in a while my neighbor gets all my cut out papers to make Christmas cards and all sorts of other cards and projects. Because I am fortuned enough to be on these amazing paper companies that I’d like to share some of that fortune ūüėČ

Spring Flower Card

Goodmorning dear Maja Design Fans,

Don’t you just love the new Denim & Friends collection? It totally rocks for me because of it’s versatility…you can go masculine but also very feminine so for today I did the last one. I went for a girly spring card with a bunch of flowers, chipboard pieces and some shimmery embellishments. I took out the teal colors form the Denim & Friends collection to match my flowers which are by Petaloo & 49 and Market.

The chipboard pieces are treated with gesso, spray, paint and metallique wax. I took out a clear sheet and a script stencil by The Dusty Attic and added paste on the clear sheet then I lifted the outer border a little with foam tape. The text is a clear stamp by Joy and I also added a piece of ribbon and a flair {which I totally love to use btw}

20170824_173953120170824_1738361

The sequins are by “Dress My Craft” and are called play with green {but I think they look really teal tho}….this was a super fun card to make and I think I will make more of them. On the outer line paper I did some stitch like stripes to finish my card and at the end I added some sprays.

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.

20170707_14385912

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.
