 Welcome and a very happy New Year to you. Tina with you today to share my project for January.

This layout was inspired by the Dusty Attic Moodboard for the month. I saw it and immediately thought Maja and stylish elegance. And what better way to display all of these than with a wedding photo. A very special photo of my little family from quite a few years ago. But this photo I feel captures all that our day was…..pure happiness and love.

I hope you enjoy this!

“Love”

Every now and then I come across a patterned paper that really projects gorgeousness in itself. And this piece I selected from the Walking in the forest collection is one of those that I am talking of. It was really all I needed to create this project with …….and em

Flannel Shirt bs

538-FlanellskjortaW-bs

This piece which I find just gorgeous with the suttle foliage at the side I find really elegant. My background was stencilled with some hearts and accentuated using paints and texture paste. I also added a very small amount of stamping.

You can see above the minty colour paint I used to help the photo pop from the page.

I did some layering of chipboards to create a base for my photo to sit upon. I then clustered flowers and lace leaves around this to bring the photo to attention.

Here you can see more layering upon the gorgeous piece of Flannel Shirt bs.

And a few more photos from different views…………..

Above you can see the background hearts which have been dressed and heat set to create dimension.

 

Here you can see the gorgeous 49andMarket flowers. These have been layered and clustered around the chipboards.

I have also added some hand dyed soft leaf lace to help soften my project.

Well that is all from me today. I hope you have enjoyed your visit. See you again next time and happy scrapping.

Hello our blog fans. Few days ago my friend ask me if I’m able to create a card for someone who know what hunting is . It was a big challenge for me but then I realised about the “Walking in the forest” collection! Fits perfectly ! Couldn’t be better 🙂 Here is my idea. Take a look, please :

 I’m really happy to create something different. It was not my comfort zone, definitely ! 🙂 What about you … do you like challenging project to make ? Where are you finding inspiration when your head is full of the same ideas, the same compositions ? Waiting for for each feedback. Hugs, Paulina

For this layout I also used some different flowers then I normally do the white ones are by 49 and Market and the other from a different brand. This layout consists out of three layers and I used the green and blue shades again I really love that color combination. to fill up my flower clusters I also added some pine cones and some die leaves.

Welcome!
Kerstin is back to share with you a new layout inspiration with a wintery feeling.

I used the paper collection ‘Joyous winterdays’ from Maja Design, because
I was inspired from the story of this wonderful paper sheet ‘Snowball fight’.

Have you seen this little boy at the lower right edge ? !
Yes it’s wintertime, the first snow is being celebrated immensely,

enjoying building a snowman, ice-skating or having a funny snowball fight.

Always a pleasure and not only for children 🙂

Hello, dear friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful beginning to the New Year! It’s Nancy here, with the blessing of being with you on the blog today. I’m so happy you’ve stopped in for a visit.

With Christmas cards behind me for the season, I’m happily moving on to this card for my dear friend’s birthday in one of my favorite collections; Maja Design’s Vintage Summer Basics.

The beautiful papers absolutely work magic in bringing this festive rose garden to life. The roses, stamped sentiment, and curly confetti are handmade from design paper. The only portion of this project that is not made with Maja Design paper is the twine and ribbon.

Below is a peek at the inside of the card, where a personal sentiment can be written. This piece is made to be removable, so a photo can be inserted at a later time if desired.

Maja Design Papers Used:

Thank you for sharing in the fun with us at the Maja Design Blog today! If you’re wondering where you can purchase these beautiful papers, just click on the STORE FINDER link to locate a retailer near you. I send wishes for warmth and light as we continue our journey through the winter months. It’s the perfect time to get cozy in our craft space and let the creativity flow!
Hugs,
