 Welcome dear Maja friends!

I was inspired to create a new mixed media layout as memory on beautiful summer days on the beach some years ago.

I used some papers from the latest beautiful collection ‘Miles Apart’ and suitable for  Monochromes ‘ Shades of Miles’ in blue shades, blue as the sea and heaven and blue as one of my favourite colours :-).

I worked in vintage style with the single sheet ‘Keeping busy’,

 combined with distress brown tones a perfect match for me.

 

  

some close up’s

 bubble blowing with stencil and stamps

 

other materials:

Chipboards from Dusty Attic; cutting dies, stamps, stencil,

Modeling paste, Mini Art Stones (Prima Marketing) ; Distress ink (Ranger)

Thanks for your visit!

Have a good time!

Hello sweet Maja fans,

Lenet here and I bring you this layout.

Ooooh my shabby heart, I love this collection so much!

The miles apart collection that is . It’s the ultimate shabby chic collection for me now.

The soft colors the roses ..everything. Next to the Sofiero collection my favorite one.

I do love the strips at the bottom of  every sheet of paper, it always ahs a nice quote on it that you can use on cards, mini albums, lay out, you name it.

I especially love the the one from the keep in touch sheet. I used it at the top corner on your left.

i cut out the flowers from the Thinking of you sheet..they are wonderful to use as a die cut.

Some pearly swirls from Prima Marketing to finish it off.

This is a chippie from Dusty Attic wich I colored with sugar floss lustre and sugar orchid lustre embossing powder from  Blond Moments.

I hope you love this layout as much as I do.

Thank you for visiting , stay safe and hop to see you again soon.

 

 

Miles Apart Wedding Card

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

As you can easily tell by the titlte, I bring you a wedding card today that I made using the latest Maja release, the Miles Apart collection:

You most definitely know that Miles Apart papers feature some beautiful and romantic flower patterns that are just perfect for occasions like a wedding. But this time instead of putting those gorgeous flowers in the card background, I took inspiration from them and tried to recreate the bouquet ON the card. And so I chose delicate light papers for the background and added a flower cluster that imitates the patterned papers:

To the rose bouquet I added die-cut leaves, crystal gems and some chipboard ornaments. Vintage ribbon and enamel dots complete the design:

Just look how nicely dimensional it turned out!

…which means it needed a box too 🙂 I decorated it with washi tape with rose pattern – a perfect match!

What do you think? I must say I’m quite satisfied 🙂

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Magnolia; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon: Na Strychu; chipboard: Scrapiniec, Wycinanka.pl; gems: my stash.

See you soon!

 

Love Always

Goodmorning Lovely Maja Design Fans,

How nice of you to visit the blog, today it’s my turn again to post something that I made with the gorgeous Maja Design papers. For this layout I used three collections named ‘Nyhavn’, ‘Little street Cafe’ & the stunning new ‘Miles Apart’….jet again I used a precious picture of mine of both our children {so much love I see when looking at it} that’s why I named this layout Love Always….This was one of the first picture I took while Abbey had her eyes open so widely and looked straight into my camera…that I was so happy that I took it. Now Kevin likes to let me take pictures again yeah. I had so much fun creating this layout although yellow is not my favorite color to scrap I think it turned out pretty nice 😉

First I used a Martha Steward punch to cut the upper part of my layout, I cut that out of the ‘Sitting at the dock’ & ‘Stay Creative’ sheets then I placed that on feeling good sheet. Then I added some twine and placed a circle on the middle of my layout. Later on I added a Dusty Attic stencil and some Lindy’s sprays on my work.  I was inspired by last months mood board at the Facebook site from Dusty Attic. Lets have a closer look:

All the chipboards I used are by Dusty Attic I treated them with white gesso and some of the I embossed like most of the words, the others I gessod and ruste pasted them I was planning on using my wonderful dusty attic paint but it was all dried out sadly enough. So I treated it with waxes and spray.

And then comes the fun part adding my flowers that I selected for this layout they are all by 49 and Market. For the finishing touch I added some metal embellishments and some dress my craft sequins which I totally adore….and I added some white gesso on my flowers to make them a softer tone.

 Maja Design papers used: Nyhavn – Sitting at the dock, Little street Cafe – Feeling good and the greens from Miles Apart – Stay Creative & Be Safe.

   

I hope you had fun reading my post and we do love to see your work created with the lovely Maja Design papers on the  Facebook site….Have a gorgeous day and I hope to see you soon….

Love

Hello Maja Friends,

I Haven’t posted there for several months and just realized that the last day of Summer is today. This Summer was a bit strange due to different issues, but I hope that you have found a chance to enjoy it.

I enjoyed playing with the new collection Miles Apart.

I love the mute colors it has and the floral motifs that I immediately cut out.

Soon we will enjoy the Fall bright colors, however I adore such kind of flowers this collection has.

I made a couple of quite simple cards using the layers and fussy cutting techniques, however I like how they turned out.

I like to mix the papers from 12×12” and 6×6” size, as you can get the variations of one pattern and get the different look.

For my sentiment I used the titles of the each 12×12” paper sheet.
