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

I hope you’re having great summer so far, even though travelling has been limited and we all still need to follow the lockdown rules. But the right attitude is the key to keep us all going strong through difficult times. So hang in there, and come have a look at the project I have to share.

Today I bring you a delicate baby girl page with a photo of my little niece. She’s so tiny in the picture, so I thought I’d use a limited amount of embellishments, making the page almost clean&simple in order not to overwhelm the photo and accent that delicacy.

I used the Denim & Friends with just a touch of the Denim & Girls collection for my layout. I kept the colour palette of the photo throughout the page. I first added some doily motives with a stencil and modeling paste and then placed the photo in the centre and surrounded it with flowers, hand cut tags and cardstock butterflies. The title is also a cardstock sticker. I completed my design with sequins scattered here and there for lightness and subtle shine:

I just love the versatility of Maja Design papers that allows you to make a sweet baby layout using a msculine collection! What do you think of how the page turned out?

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stencil: Agateria; flowers, stickers: Prima Marketing; sequins: my stash.

That’s all for today, drop by soon for more inspiration! See you later!

A very good morning to you all,

Today I present you my second layout I made since my creative juices are flowing again….the colors {blue & green} I used are totally into my comfort zone so this layout was created very quickly. And look at that picture I am so totally in love with our daughter it’s nuts. I really like to use the opposite parts of my chipboard pieces that you normally throw away that is what I used here to. Alle the chipboard pieces I used here are treated with gesso and some them later on with Finnabair wax.

The picture in this layout was a lucky shot too….that little girl brings so much joy to our life’s I can’t imagine not to have her. Being pregnant with her was amazing so much better then with our now 15 year old son who also adores his little sister. Here a picture when I was pregnant:

I like to add little details on my work like sequins, art stones, prills and those amazing clocks from a sheet from the “Vintage Autumn Basics”collection. I cut apart I think three of those sheets and keep them in a envelop to use whenever I like to it’s just a little addition on your page. I am a hugh sucker for flowers and especially the ones by 49 and Market because they fit so amazingly well with all the Maja Design papers.

As a finishing touch I added some wax on my white flowers so they blend in a little more. Thank you so much for visiting the blog today. And I will be back posting in two weeks on my normal post day the previous post was Lenet her day that I used because I could not wait anymore to post lol…

Love

Goodmorning sweet Maja Design followers,

It’s been ages since my last post and since I have been creative. I have to tell you it feels so good 😉 to create again, I have a lot of inspiration luckily! So hopefully you will like my work the next view posts. This is my first layout I made with our precious little girl in the spotlights ‘Abbey Jane’ is her name and she was born on the 15th of July last year, so she is almost turning one. It’s sad that due to the corona virus we have to keep it small but hey she will not remember it anyways lol ….

We feel very blessed that we have such a healthy little girl and she is a very happy baby, we could not have wished for more {our little present} For me this layout is kind of messy but it’s my first one since a long time so I don’t mind that it is. For this layout I used the beautiful “Denim and Girls” collection which I totally adore so more to come for sure. The chipboards I painted and sprayed with different mediums. The background is purely made by using a stencil and some crackle paste.

I am still figuring out how to make the best pictures with my phone still not getting it the way I want to, I think it’s time for me to read the manual for once lol….. but where do I have the time oh oh….because when I do have time I want to scrap. for this layout I used two of my favorite sheets, Ripped Jeans bs and Romantic Blouse:

 

Hopefully you all liked my first post glad to be back again…..love to see you soon! And I wish you a wonderful day and weekend. Be creative and happy thank you for visiting the blog today 😉

Love

Welcome Maja friends!

I was inspired to create a mixed media layout to a natural garden theme.

I love this time in my garden when the lavender is in bloom and it’s a beautiful characteristic

 because the dried lavender flowers keep their scent for an extremely long time.

They are ideal for decoration, potpourris and to fill sachets.

  

 I used the paper sheet ‘Lace’ from the – Denim & Girls – paper collection as background and some cut outs from Vintage Spring Basics collection.  Matching the nature theme I added some chipboards from Dusty Attic, some remnants of lace & jute, sisal, dried & artificial lavender flowers and branches to the mixed media layout.

Lace

 

Floral top bs

 

Tight fit bs

 

Days to remember (Vintage Spring Basics)

 

some close up’s

 

The background was created with some diluted acrylic paints and some Lavinia stamps.

 here I used the ‘Juliette Balcony’ – a chipboard from Dusty Attic

in weathered wood optic made with a crackle medium and distress inks

 Thanks for your visit!

Wish you a good time!

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

As I think it’s quite beneficial for both personal and creative development, from time to time I decide to step outside my comfort zone and try something I haven’t tried yet or I don’t like. And today I bring you the result for the latter: a layout featuring my not-so-favourite colour palette of orange paired with purple.

For this self-challenge I used a photo of my goddaughter taken soon after she was born. I used the Little Street Cafe collection that offers some beautiful orange patterns and eased the pain with a bit of purple and kraft brown. The photo has a rustic feel, so I added a tag cut out of burlap paper, but added a gold filigree panel to relate to the title too 🙂

I also added a couple more of tags and a lot of flowers to decorate the photo, as well as a guardian angel to protect the baby 🙂

The title is arranged with cardboard letters that together with a clock button add to the rustic climate:

Apart from the gold panel, there are some opalescent sequins to add glam on the other hand:

Although it’s not my colour combo of voluntary choice, I still like the way the page turned out. What do you think?

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Cherry Lynn Designs, Crea-Lies; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; button: Fabrika Dekoru; resin angel: Prima; sequins: my stash.

Do you leave your comfort zone sometimes? Do you like the results? Tell me in the comments!
