Hello Maja Friends,

April is coming, however I found a picture taken in August and felt that I need to create something with it immediately, though I skipped the Spring time.

Well, I do like the end of summer, due to the harvest, the  smell of hay, and most of all because of the apples season.

So the apples were my main focus this time. I die cut the trees using the die, and used the negative die cut too. I also make some watercoloring inside this negative die cut tree

I add some drops of watercolors on the stairs die cut too

I didn’t want to be my layout busy with the paper layers or the embellishments, so I added mostly the die cuts   – one more tree, this time topped with the leaves and apples

and Silhouettes Etched Die with a tree  .

I also made some fussy cutting  – just love these roses from Summertime collection

and finished everything with watercolors.

Supplies used:

Summertime collection

Spellbinders Dies, Prima Marketing Flowers and Watercolors.

 

I also wanted to remind you about this month’s Moodboard, you can read about it here,  and to share my sample with you too

I love this color scheme as it has all of my favorite colors

 

I mixed the papers from different collection – Vintage Summer Basics and Crea Diem

I hope you have liked my projects for today.

Supplies used:

Vintage Summer Basics and Crea Diem papers

A bag full of Get Well wishes!

Hi everyone! I have a decorated paper bag to show you today. I have used red, gorgeous papers from Maja Design and the Summertime Collection. When I have planned to use the colour red, this is my favourite collection to use.

I have cut out different parts by using the Maja Papers.

I have also coloured some seambinding ribbons to match the papers. I have sprayed them with water mixed with Distress Ink, re-inkers (Aged Mahogany and Fired Brick).

The image is from Magnolia and the Get Well Collection. And I have added som Frantage and Liquid pearls around her.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I have added corrugated paper, a doily, lace and several layers of papers underneath the image.

Here is the list of papers used:

Thank you so much for visiting the blog today!

With love,

Love

Hello sweet Maja fans, today it’s my turn again to give you some inspiration

I’m so in love with the Maja papers , I find it so heartbreaking to throw the left overs  away so I always save almost every snippet I have left .

These snippets are great for smaller project like cards.

This one I made with left overs from my last layout that I made using the summertime collection.

 

 

Like my layouts I use foamtape for my cards as well to build layers and dimension.

For the leaves I used dies from my favorite things and cut them out of the celery/sage paper from the shade of sofiero monochromes

And again I used the cut out roses from  the smell the roses paper, and tucked some folded flat prima flowers behind the big white flower from wild orchid crafts.

Thank you for watching and I hope I gave you some inspiration.

Sweet

Hello  dear Maja fans.

Today it’s my turn again to inspire you and this time I have a tutorial of how I made this lay out for you.

For this one I used the beautiful papers of the summertime collection.

 

For the background I used the backside of Flowers every where. I high-lighted the area where want my to make my composition with some gesso

While the gesso is drying  I cut out some roses out of the smell the roses sheet, those I will tuck behind the picture and papers later.

 

When the gesso is dry  I made splatters with  Lindy’s flat fabio”s sidewalk chalk and queen of hearts red.

Than I added some random stamping when the splatters were dry.  To see what  the stamp and what color ink I like and want to use,

I did some test stamping at the place that will be covered with the papers. This way I can have a better look at what feels right for me.

I decided to use Pink petunia from versaMagic.

After choosing the papers I want behind my picture, cutting them in the right size I distress the edges with mt paperdistresser from Making Memories

I have this one for I think 10 years used it a lot and really love it. I tried other distressers  when the were introduced  but always went back to using this one.

For sticking the papers on to the papers I use  foamtape because it gives your layout some demension.

I always stick it in the middle so you can tuck flowers or other embellies behind it later on.

Because i own a lot of supplies I never used I gave myself the challenge to try to use some oldies on every project I make from this layout on..

This time I took these Prima flowers. I crunched them to these flowers and  tucked them with the roses .

I love the the way the look now so I’m sure I will use this more often in the future.

   

After sticking the papers and picture on to the background , I embellished  it with roses from Prima, badges from cuts2luv , pearls from the dollarstore.

The leaves are made using  Monochromes shade of Sofiero – Celery/Sage with dies from My favorite things and the swirly ones I think from Marianne Design.. and l tucked the roses I cut out earlier between the layers of the papers.

The edge with the little hearts is made with a punch from Martha Stewart. the word Sweet is a chippy from dusty attic that I colored with black embossing powder.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that it inspired you .
