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 .

Love

Goodmorning , Lenet here.

I really love the Maja Papers and hate to waste the snippets and leftovers I have after I used my papers , so I keep everything.

Only problem is I have a box full of little pieces that might come useful some time.  So I set myself  a goal to make a card out of the leftovers every time I made a layout.

 

This time it’s this card I made with the leftovers from a layout using the summertime collection.

And because Valentines day is lurking around the corner I decided to make it a love card.

As you see a took a big flower from wild orchid crafts as a centerpiece with some die cut leaves .

The word love I cut out of the back of the strip that tells it is a Maja Design paper and the name of the paper .

I always save those too very good idea to give the back a nice design so nothing gets wasted.

Well so far my post for this time.  I hope you like it and that I Inspired you .

Have a nice day

 Hello.  Jennifer Snyder with you today to share some Christmas cards.
Pet owners love to receive cards from their pets.  I know I do.  It’s a cute way to include our furry family in the celebration of a holiday or event.
Well, it’s time for me to start making those pet cards, and I’ve used the new collection by Maja Design, “Joyous Winterdays”.  These are the gorgeous papers used from the collection.
“Beautiful Pine”
“Pick a Tree”
“Make Decorations”
The colors in this new collection are both wintery blues and traditional Christmas colors of green and red.  The combination is exquisite.   And as always, the papers have patternes that can also be used through the year – not just at holiday time.   BONUS!
I used the new Joyous Winterdays collection for my sweet dog card.
The sentiment says, “Have a tail-waggin Christmas”
 The dog and kitty are from Tim Holtz.”Mini Crazy Cats and Dogs” stamps and matching dies.
 I also decided to create a kitty card using a very untraditional collection of papers and colors.
Maja Design “Summertime” collection.  The is just more proof that any Maja Design collection can be used for multiple purposes.
These are the papers I used from the Summertime collection:
“Is Always the Best”
“Taste the Strawberries”
“In the Garden”

Thanks for stopping today.

Shop for the new collection as well as all the collections using the Store Finder link found here.

Goodmorning lovely Maja Fans,

It’s been lovely weather here in my country up to 25 degrees eventhough, all the leaves are falling from the trees and we have the prettiest colors of Autumn it is nice to not wear you jacket again in October. Sadly it was for just three days because today it’s raining again. For today I have a 12×12 layout using two pretty Maja Design collections “Summertime” & “Denim & Friends” and I am showcasing Camilla her twins {I can not get enough of using their cute pictures <3 }….These pictures are taken in Venice, a city I would love to visit someday.

I have also used some of the monochromes of Denim & Friends {the aqua sheet}….I treated my chipboard with different mediums such as wax, gesso, rust paste, ink & spray. I stamped on my background with different clear stamps by 49 and Market also the flowers are by the same company.
