Hearts and memories & a card

Well hello sweet Maja fans,

I am so happy you decided to visit the blog today. This time I’d like to share a couple of projects I made with several Maja Design paper collections, first up is my latest layout using the magnificent stencil designed by our very own Gabrielle “Moving Vines” they totally spice up your layout WOW. Thank you Gabrielle for creating such wonderful designs for us to use. Last week I heard some bad news my aunt from California {who is the wife to my grandfather’s brother} died and we now have a Facebook page of her memorial.  On that page they showed this wonderful picture that of course I had to scrap 😉 I am totally hooked on pictures like this, Aunt {Norma} Noor like we called her is the second on the right! This picture is dated back in the fourties. Amazing right??

For this layout I used the amazing “Vintage Autumn Basics” collection which still is one of my all time favorite collections by Maja Design. The flowers are handmade with a wonderful die by Cheery Lynn Designs {where I will be designing for again after being away to focus on my study where now I have my diploma for yeahhhh}


This design is actually a design I made before using other papers from a different company but it totally came out differently. I used three layers as the base of my layout and then put some amazing Tresors de Luxe lace behind the tears to give it more dimension.


After that I stamped and sprayed before pasting the moving vines on my page. Don’t you just love the clock sheet in this amazing collection you can just pop them out everywhere on your page, card & altered projects.


I gave all my chipboard pieces a white finish to match the lace I used. At first I wanted to used flowers that I bought but that didn’t matched my papers as I had hoped. That’s what’s great about making your own flowers it’s really time consuming but hey it keeps me of the the streets right?? LOL……:-)

Maja Design papers used: Autumn-Basics-P

Today I’d also like to show you a card I made with the “Vintage Baby” collection. It’s a flip card I made for a baby boy. So I used the blue, cream, light brown tones in this collection. This was a super easy card to make because it’s made with a die, so you don’t have to measure it because it’s already in the size you need it to be. Does that make sense?


Look at that cute teddy bear and little shoes aren’t they adorable…if you would like to make this card I could give you the sizes just tell me in a comment and I will reply as quickly as I can.
























In two weeks is my next post and the I will show you some typical boy’s pages which I am totally into the last couple of months {I also use flowers on them hehe}. Thank you so much for your visit and have a great creative weekend!

    Amy sorry for your family’s loss. Your layout is so, so pretty – it’s so wonderful that you were able to showcase such a beautiful photo. I think your card is also beautiful. I’m sure it will be a keepsake for the parents.
