Goodmorning & happy Friday Maja Fans,

Today I am futuring another picture of one of Camilla her little girls. When I saw this picture I totally fell in love with it and I thought “well” I need to scrap it. For this layout I used the pretty Nyhavn collection and to accent the beauitful papers I added some gorgeous pink Prima Marketing flowers from the Wild and Free collection the black flowers I added are by Petaloo. I am totally hooked on using flairs ate the moment here I also used one from Cuts2luv.

First I cut a large v part out of the lighter colored paper then I stamped around the edges with the stitched stamp designed by Gabrielle Pollacco. Then I added some distressink victorian velvet with a blending tool and added some text and dod stamps to the rest of the background. Then I used two differents stencils for my layout. The chipboard pieces are by Dusty Attic and the are treated with gesso and ink.

On the stripes and dots stencil I added some black flatback gem stones to make it pop of the page, then I added some lace in the v-shape and sprayed all over my page to soften it up a little. At he end i cut out some clocks form the “Vintage Autumn Basics”collection.

At the end I also added some metal embellishments I just can’t live without those things……This was a lot of fun to make as I don’t have a daughter. These pictures make me happy thank you Camilla for using it…..

Goodmorning & happy Friday Maja Fans,

Today I have a layout to share with you all in honor of being a mom. In life we all want our kids to grow up and be amazing young people and trust in what they can achieve…..Our boy is a charming 12 year old kiddo and I love him to the moon and back. Yesterday was a disaster day of creating that I tore a whole layout apart and threw it away! Am I the only one? Or are there more of you that have that sometimes. A couple of day’s ago I also deleted all my inbox messages from my hotmail too….so I think I am having a bad week lol. Hopefully all will get better soon so I don’t feel like I do now which is rushed…

I used the pretty Nyhavn sheet as my background and added two other colors to make the picture pop of my layout. It’s totally a different style then what I was creating before I trew it away….because that was all pink and girly. I really love to create with pink but this time it didn’t work at all. I used some stencils on my background with some black paste this time.

All the chipboard peices are treated with ink, spray’s, acrylic paint and embossing powder and they are all by Dusty Attic. I also added a flair too I am totally hooked on those at the moment.

The flowers I used are from three different companies which are 49 and Market, Petaloo and Prima. I love making flower clusters like these. They add so much to your page at least that is what I think do you agree with me??

Hello beautiful Maja Fans,

Today it is my turn again on this lovely blog, I love my Maja Design papers so much that I find them a blessing to work with. Lately I am totally into baby layouts really don’t know why the only thing I can think of that babies are so stinking cute….for this layout I wanted to highlight just one color extra besides black & white which officously is orange. I am not such a fan of that color but it reminds me of a wonderful time with our handsome son Kevin because one of his first words he said besides dad, mom and car was orange {still think that is so funny}…

I really love the black & white sheets in the Sommartider collection I always use them when I need a black or white peice of paper to create with. Before I started creating I firstly picked out the flowers I wanted to use {sadly my last black ones that I have} the orange ones are by 49 and Market and called shimmer & shine, the black ones are by Petaloo and the white ones are by Dusty Attic like all the chipboard is too.

At first I cut out the middle part of the Strandmode bs sheet and stuck the Sommarens bild bs behind it, I also did that with the sunny side sheet from the “Nyhavn collection. Then I distressed the edges of both sheets and machine stitched on the orange sheet. Then I picked out hte picture I wanted to use. I treated my chipboard pieces with gesso and rust paste because it has orange in it to finish my layout I added some sidewalk chalk {white} spray by lindy’s to make it a little shabby chic. I also added some shimmer spray by the same manufactor. The last thing I added are some orange glass beads and prills….

Hello my friends! Happy Easter to all of you!!!

It’s Mary here with you today sharing my latest layout featuring the ”Nyhavn” and the new ”Monochromes-Shades of Sofiero” collections.

A layout filled with colorful flowers 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 ”unkown” photographer.

I used for my background the ”King’s Square” paper from the ”Nyhavn” collection and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”Blush/Rouge” paper from the ”Monochromes” collection using it’s both sides.

I primed my background with white 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 ”Cotton Candy Pink”, ”Alpine Ice Rose” and ”Peony Scarlet Red”.

I heat embossed the ”Foliage Set 1” chipboards with ”Spanish Moss Green” Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing powder. The ”Circle Dot Frame” was also embossed with the ”Twilight Rade Slate” powder.

The chipboards I used are 2crafty, the flair is Cuts2luv and all the flowers are Prima Marketing.

Hello Maja fans!!!

A sensational layout that was inspired by that beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

I used for my background the ”Historical Atmosphere” paper and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”Strolling along the Canal” paper using both sides.
