I wish a happy to hello to all of our friends at the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy here, and what a blessing it is to have this time with you all. We have a special sponsor this week, Petaloo by FloraCraft, and they’ve graciously showered us with beautiful blooms. I’m sharing some of them with you today, along with one of my all time favorite Maja Design collections, Vintage Summer Basics.

I realize it’s autumn in many parts of the world, but the lovely papers and flowers bring to mind flower vendors at the farmer’s market, which is where I draw inspiration for today’s card.

My base is design papers that are distressed, layered, and stitched. The central bloom is accentuated with tea stained doilies and lace, with a tumbling of florals reaching down the side.

The center of the card is layered with additional design paper. The lace edge is courtesy of a border punch.  An ivory twine bow brings everything together with a feminine flourish.

The ‘Flowers 4 Sale’ stamp is from my stash, and I’m thrilled to find a ideal project for it.

This picture was taken back in 2010 and I never used it on a layout before…all the chipboard pieces are by The Dusty Attic and where treated with white gesso and Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays but also I used some different sizes art stones and some stamps and stencils. The stamp I used is a new one from 49 and Market designed by own very own Pascale….awesome job girl love it!

Hi Everyone,

Its Keren Here with a new layout.

I’ve always loved the brick pattern from the Vintage Summer Basics and so I knew I had to incorporate it into a layout during my DT term.

Below is a photo of my husband and daughter and i thought it was so cute.

I framed the photo by die cutting with a frame out of the background paper. The brick paper hid the area where I had cut from.

I'm Keren Tamir a self taught scrapbooker, mixed media artist and designer. Since I was a child, I always loved art. I used to doodle on my notebooks and on anything I could get my hands on. ​ Fourteen years ago I discovered scrapbooking and fell in love with it. One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. Scrapbooking opened a creative door to something that I had longtime forgotten I'd loved. It gave me peace of heart and mind. visit my blog for more inspiration: https://kerentamir.blogspot.ca

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.

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.

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 …..
