Hello dear Maja fans,

This is Kavitha here with my first post, I am so happy and honored to be a part of this wonderful team.

I made a soft and girly layout with Vintage summer basics. I stenciled some floral design with modelling paste on to the background.For layering I added some papers from Vintage summer basics and Vintage spring basics collection.

I added lots of laces for the soft and feminine look.Behind the photo i added some chipboard pieces which i painted with white gesso and heat embossed with embossing powders

I finished it off with some Prima flowers,chipboard butterflies and white splatters.

 

Maja papers used: 1933 bs , 1911 , 4th of May , 7th of may

Happy crafting ,

Tender Kiss

Goodmorning lovely Maja Fans,

Oh boy do I dislike cold & rainy weather it’s been raining for days {and freezing at night} now at where I live. So for today I wanted to show you a layout made with lots of flowers and a spring picture of my cousin Jaime & her boyfriend Weston who live in the States oh how I love Facebook ūüėČ This layout was made with both the I Wish & Vintage Spring Basics collection. The flowers I used are by 49 and Market and totally fit the purple color from the Vintage Spring Basics collection like the other flowers fitted with the I wish collection. The chipboard I used is by The Dusty Attic and I treated them with acrylic paint, gesso and rust paste.

First I added some stamps on my background sheet that I recently bought, over that a stencil that looks like my stamp. The outer edges of my layout are punched with holes and then were traced with a blunt knife to get the upward effect you see. On my picture you see a piece of chipboard that looks like strings I added some extra thread on it to match my flower clusters a bit more. Then I added some gesso on top of the thread. To give my layout a fresh look I added some white flowers too….I really love that picture <3

¬†¬†Hello. ¬†Jennifer Snyder here today using a combination of papers from Maja Design Coffee in the Arbour¬†and the Vintage Spring Basics collections. ¬†Over the years, I’ve found that so many of the collections can be used together and mix so very well.¬† It’s part of the fun of using Maja Design.

The beautiful papers used from the Coffee in the Arbour collection are :
 Lemon Meringue Pie, Flourishing Garden,  Homemade Lemoncurd Рall shown below.
¬†The Coffee in the Arbour¬† collection is bright and cheery.¬† It’s¬† like sitting on the porch on a warm sunny with a tall glass of lemonade. ¬† Since it’s Autumn in NY and the weather is turning chilly, these warm sunny days are going to be just a memory, so I’ll be looking at the paper and smiling, remembering and enjoying.
¬†As I mentioned, I also used papers from the Vintage Spring Collection. ¬†It’s blooming with flowers and butterflies.
These are the papers I chose:
 6th of May paper
7th of May

 The sweet butterflies are cut from the 6th of May paper in the collection.  They make for the perfect finishing touch.

Thank you for stopping here today.
You can see all the Maja Design collections here.

Welcome back and hello!
I hope this post finds you happy and well. Today I have for you a layout inspired by a gorgeous photo of my eldest daughter. This I have titled

“Dream”…….

I have used a combination of Maja Designs gorgeously stunning Vintage Summer and Vintage Spring Basics collection to create my layered background of torn and distressed papers.
¬† I can’t tell you how often I have wanted to use this piece of chipboard……but finally it happened for the perfect project. I think it just fit wonderfully here. You can see these pieces above cut into 2’s and tucked amoungst my gorgeous Maja paper layers. Yay I was so happy when this worked!
I love this Title chipboard. They are totally gorgeous. This one was dressed in some Sugar Plum acrylic paint and then I toned it down a little to compliment my page with some white gesso and of course some Dress My Craft sparkling dust……..
I have also used a Swirly Frame chipboard. It was cut into two and used to frame these beautiful photo’s of my daughter Ashlea. We held a Mad Hatters Tea Party a little while back and she dressed as the Queen and looked just stunning. These photos of course were changed to a Sepia tone to help fit my layout and the moodboard.
Here you can see my Fleur de Lis coloured with inks and paints. Atop of it I sat the small Decorative #1 frame and then on top of that a Mini Clock Face. The mini clockfaces are the perfect fit for this frame!!
Okay and I love me a little or quite a lot however you look at it, of the Dress My Craft
Princess Mix Sequins. I also gave my layout a good sprinkling of ¬†Dress My Craft’s Sparkling Dust just to make it shine that little bit more.
I also added in some florals but I kept it quite minimal for me that is. Above you can see the 49andMarket Floral Mixology flowers that I used. These are the Pina Colada coloured florals that I changed up by wiping over with a little Dusty Sugar Plum acrylic paint.
I have also tucked in a little lace and muslin to keep the layout as soft as possible.
And lastly these gorgeous Heart Arrows. I have dressed both the large and the small chippies in some Star Dust Stickles to really make them pop. I then added them into my clusters of flowers.
 Well that is all from me today. I hope you have a beautiful week and find some time for yourself !
Big hugs …..
