Hello lovely Maja Design friends,

Welcome to the blog today I am such a big fan of gorgeous new collection “Everyday Life”! I think it’s because it’s so versatile it has a bunch of different colors and styles of designs. This time I used the blue & cream tones with a lovely picture of my mom. I have used two sheets of the collection to create this layout. First I cut out the middle of my cream sheet that one I added on the blue sheet that I alsi cut the middle out of. Then to make it ferm again I used a monochrome sheet I also matted the picture with the same sheets.

Love That Smile Mom:

The chipboard pieces are all by 2Crafty. The frame I inked with some cream ink after I gessod it. Then I added some white & clear wax. The beautiful 11″Fine Floral Frame Set I sprayed with some lovely lindy’s and added some blue ink randomly to make fit my layout. The phrase & word are treated with white gesso and I added some blue ink. On the Swaying Branches I did the opposite I inked it with blue and used some white wax on it. 

For this layout I used a older technique on my background sheet I took a plastic bag and wrinkled it and added some spray on it to then add it to my sheet. I aslo used a pretty stencil only it’s almost all underneath the pretty pieces of chipboards & my picture. I also did some stitching and wrinkled my papers a bit.

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

I’m so thrilled to bring you another project that  I made using the brand new Everyday Life collection! This set is so versatile that it matches any occasion and so many various themes! Last time I shared romantic, feminine and flowery Mother’s Day cards and today I bring you a masculine layout featuring a totally different colour scheme – and it’s still the same collection 🙂 Love it!

I chose the papers that match the colours from a photo of my hubby and our elder son learning to ride a bike 🙂 I’m happy I was able to capture this moment, so “everyday” and natural and yet so special!

I chose a dark brown paper for the background, so that the photo and all the embellishments pop up. I cut some strips of papers and added a signature strip to make a design grid, put the photo upon them and filled the space with flowers.

I arranged the title using words cut out from one of the papers (don’t you think it’s a great idea? Plenty of words to choose from, too!):

I also included some other cut-out elements, and added gold paint splashes to brighten the whole:

I love how this photo portraits my husband as a loving and caring dad, making sure our boy feels safe and supported. And I’m glad I was able to scrapbook this moment with beautiful papers.

Here’s what I used for my layout:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; clock face: Maya Road; bling: Marianne Design; paint: Ecoline.

That’s all for today, have a nice day and see you soon!

Goodmorning lovely Maja Design friends,

Welcome to the blog, today I will show you a layout with the gorgeous new collection called “Everyday Life” and ohhhh my words it’s so freaking gorgeous. It has different color pallettes and some amazing cut out sheets to work with, for today’s layout I went for the yellow,cream and black/brown shades. I did a lot of distressing on my borders and what I totally love about this collection it has such lovely phrases randomly placed of the paper sheets.

Delight in Every Moment

I have used three layers here for my layout and behind the picture two layers, I used a gorgeous stencil by Celebr8 on my background. I also did a lot of fussy cutting on my layout like the sunflowers en butterflies. Firstly I coated the corner pieces, phrase and aztec feather with a thin layer of white gesso, then I used some gold embossing powder on the corners and white embossing powder on the phrase & feather after that I added some waxes in different shades to create more depth.

I off course used a picture of our lovely Abbey that I took last year her sitting in the grass with flowers in her hand. The beautiful chipboard border is treated with some gold shimmer spray and some waxes. On the background paper I used a new stencil and I finished my layout of by adding some “say it in crystals” & some white spray.

Hello  sweet maja fans,

Lenet herre and today I bring you this congratulate card for some one who just has a new home.

Both our daughter and son are trying to find a home for themself, but because there is a big shortage for homes I think it can take a while before the finally find one.

Of course I hope they find one soon and I can sent this card to either one of them on thier new home adress.

 

I made this card using the Bohemian Harmony Collection. The chippies I used are from scrapaholics, I colored them with acrylic paints.

The stamps are som golden oldies from Waltzing mouse.

I hope you like my card and hope to see you again soon.

 

 

 

First Communion Cards

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

May is traditionally the month of First Communions in Poland, and as it’s a very important celebration for many kids, cards for the occasion are hugely popular. And so today I bring you two cards I made, for a boy and a girl.

While I used the beautiful Miles Apart collection for my cards, I focused on papers you would normally not see, or just not use at all 😉 because I used only one patterned paper, and the main background is with a Monochrome set paper, while for the decorative border on both cards I used the back sides of signature strips that you normally cut off and throw away 🙂 I love that Maja Design uses even those tiny scraps to give you beautiful patterns!

As you can see, I used the same design for both cards, and they differ only by border patterns and main images of boy and girl.

Apart from the background, I used the Monochrome papers for the leaves in the flower clusters too:

And so, although Monochrome sets that go with many of the Maja collections are meant to complement the patterned papers, they also make beautiful background by themselves, as each Monochrome set is designed with their own subtle patterns.

Here’s what I used for the cards:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: I Love Craft, Spellbinders; punch: DpCraft; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; stamps: Agateria.

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you soon!
