Welcome creative friends!

Have you yet seen our latest amazing paper collection ‘ Miles Apart’ ??

If not – check them out! You’ll love them!

Delightful colours and inspiring motifs, I was immediately in love with the motives.

I think it’s a beautiful mixture of soft colors that are also suitable as background for masculine layouts maybe in grundge style.

I have decided for a 12 x12 layout in vintage style suitable to the grey month November but also to this difficult times for all of us.

Goodmorning lovely Maja Design fans,

I sure hope everything goes well with you all, Aren’t you loving the “Miles Apart” collection as much as I do? It’s so shabby chic right up my ally. I have been fussy cutting my brains out lol. For this layout I used another precious picture of Abbey I just can’t stop creating with pictures of her. This was a really easy and quick layout to make because I already did the fussy cutting part during my series I watch on tv. I wanted the picture to stand out in this layout that’s why I kept it clean…..

It was really fun to create this layout, I took half a sheet of the little things and placed a part of distance bsand placed it behind the first one to later on put it on the keeping busy sheet after I distressed it like a mad woman lol….those buttons you see on my layout are actually chipboard pieces that I altered is Maja Design paper.

On the background of my layout I added a stencil with golden crackle paste but before that I first stamped on it with Gabi’s stoic stamp by 49 and Market. After that I sprayed some of my favorite Lindy’s spray to soften up my layout. To make the phrases on my layout stand out a little more I used the black ones by The Dusty Attic and the phrase “The Ultimate Photo” I painted black.

After that I added some flowers by 49 and Market, wishing bubbles and some metal pieces with words on it to finish of my layout….and I stopped but it was hard because I wanted to add more lol.

Thank you so much for being here with us today I hope I have inspired you to take out your Maja Design papers and create with them…..stay safe…… Love

Hello Maja Friends,

Today I am happy to share with you my layout that I’ve made recently with the brand new Miles Apart collection.

I found pictures taken during Summer 2019, and since 2020 is not the best year for us, I decided to look for the good memories from the last year.

I played with blue and pink tones, though my daughter doesn’t like pink and anything girly, and even made a short hair cut this year, I thought that I keep all my layouts for my memory, so it’s ok to make it soft and feminine.

I made a rectangle die cuts , some of them are from old collection Antligen, as well as some fussy cutting  and created many layers.

I cut out the title from the paper cut outs with the info about Maja Design papers, and I suppose it is a good idea that the paper name is a good title for any of your project, have you used them as I do?

Since the pictures were taken near the fountain so I ‘ve added some watercolor splashes.

 

Stay Positive for the upcoming winter days.

Goodmorning Maja Design fans,

If you visit the blog regularly you know I love making layouts! I have wanted to scrap this picture for a while now but that mini princess is making it a little difficult to scrap sometimes and I have to find time {while she is sleeping} to create because I really need it. We went to a photographer to make this picture because I wanted one with the four of us in it to put on a canvas to hang on my wall and so we did and I am very happy with it….look at that masculine son of us isn’t he handsome? I really love my little family <3

For this layout I used the pretty ‘Celebration’ collection and two sheets of the monochromes one of the Shades of Sofiero called white/sand and one of the Shades of Celebration called charcoal. On the background behind the pictures I used the monochromes I also used these for the flowers I made using the amazing dies by Cheery Lynn Designs which are still my favs. After having some computer problems {it crashed} oh boy how I dislike it when that happens I am back again….but due to these problems I missed two posts sorry for that….

The monochromes are amazing to make flowers with as I did in this layout…if I have time I will do a little tutorial on how to make the flowers in my layout they are super easy and quick to make. The chipboards are by The Dusty Attic and I treated them with just plain paint and some of them like the barb wire I treated with embossing powder. As you can also see in my layout I used some cheese cloth behind my picture and flowers.

To finish of my layout I added some stamps, art stones, wishing bubbles, and metal pieces and of course my favorite spray “Sidewalk Chalk” on my tittle I used some of the amazing rust paste by Finnabair. With this layout I entered in a moodboard challenge because the colors spoke to me and I knew exactly which papers I could use.

Maja Design papers used: Anniversary bs, You’re Invited, Ephemera bs, Mono Celebration-Charcoal bs, Mono White Sand

   

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 creative friends!

Autumn is with us and the days are getting shorter and darker.

Best time for a walking through the meadows and forests, all surrounded by colorful autumn leaves.

I was inspired to create a mixed media layout in typical fall colours.

 

I used some wonderful papers from the ‘Walking in the Forest’ collection, here you can find a lot of  papers in warm earth tones

as well as shades of denim blue and green. I love particularly the nature style in the design collection.
