Hello our blog fans. Today I would like to show you my mini layout 🙂 Why I decided to create a little bit smaller version? I adjusted the size of the work to the Instax photo.

This time I used the “Denim&Friends” Collection – it fits perfectly with the b&w picture.

It is really nice idea to keep the memories from the holiday. I will have this mini layout close to my office desk xD Hope you will like my work. Hugs, Paulina

Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

Welcome to this lovely blog today, I am back after being sick with a nasty flue for more then three weeks and I am dreaming to have some warmer weather so for today I made a a summer layout with one of Camilla her daughters on their vacation to Italy last summer. For this layout I used this months mood board colors with the gorgeous “Enjoying outdoors” collection. I also used some of the fancy clocks from the clock sheet from the “Vintage Autumn Basics” collection through out my layout.

I just love the way Camilla takes her pictures most of the time when her girls don’t see it. The chipboards I used are treated with gesso, rust effect paste military set and antique brilliance amethyst magic both by finnabair. All the flowers are by 49 and Market. I got the idea of using my chipboards like this by our very own Tina {thank you for your amazing talent xox}

I used some of the amazing new background 49 and Market stamps 1787 & Flowery Tile designed by our very own Pascale on the Flourishing bs sheet. they I took out my fishnet stencil by Dusty Attic to add on several places on my layout. Underneath my picture & flowers clusters I added some cheese cloth.

After I treated my background I added three horizontal papers strips from the picking flowers sheet and placed the on the top, bottom and just above the bottom to get a flow in my design. And at the end I added some 3d balls and some shells to finish this layout. Did you see the new mood board this Tuesday? If not let me show you again my layout was based on this mood board we sure hope you will play along too…..I for sure can not wait to see your work. <3

Maja Design papers used: Enjoying outdoors collection: Flourishing bs, Picking flowers bs, Having tea in the sun and from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection: no.XVI

    

Thank you so much for your visit I hope I have inspired you to play with your Maja Design papers you have in you stash or even order new products I have used here.

Love xoxo

Welcome creative friends!

Kerstin is back with a new springtime layout.

After a very long cold period, it finally gets warmer and the daffodils in my garden start to bloom. I love this time, finally, more sun shines again and gives hope for new life. There is a lot to do in the garden right now, but you should also let all five go straight and just enjoy this short time.

This time I used a monochrome paper as background, I love this neutral papers because

you will have so many opportunities to create a selfmade mixed media background.

I used a brick stencil with white gesso, old music paper sheets, stamps, leftovers from craft paper,

Glimmer Mist Spray (Sunflower) from Tattered Angels, Distress Ink Stain from Ranger,

paper frames from La Blanche and wonderful flowers from 49 and Market.

some details

I hope you like this little spring layout inspiration

with monochrome paper from the ‘Shades of Celebration’ collection,

I will return on 18th of April with a

Tutorial 🙂

Happy crafting!

Where are the bunnies hidden?!

Three rabbits hid on this spring project, have you already discovered her?

Maybe there are four 😉 ??

I used our wonderful latest ‘Celebration’ collection for this romantic vintage layout.

 

I love the delicate colours on this sheets, absolutely right for me to create a springtime layout

with a lot of things which make this season so beautiful.

I glued this on a canvas und used it as mural for my springtime home decoration.

Waiting for Spring

Hello Maja friends!

It’s March now and everyone is waiting for spring because we have had enough of the snow and coldness.

As the snow slowly melts and patches of green start to show, a whole
new world unfolds around you, offering a nature experience of a different kind.
As soon as the days start to draw out again shoots begin to show everywhere:
the first to peek through the soil are the snowdrops, daffodils and crocuses.
I was able to discover them in my garden before winter came back.

But what is one of my favorite sayings?

Now matter how long the winter
Spring is sure to follow!

So I was inspired to make a springtime layout with some paper sheets

from the beautiful collection ‘Vintage Romance’

together with some stamps, cutting dies (letters, circles, branches, frames, butterflies, tags, leaves),

lace, feathers, Art stones, old note paper, Distress inks,

a small book page from La Blanche

and a little paper doll from Tim Holtz.

some details

the background paper ‘When I saw you’ has so wonderful delicate green stripes,

very subtly and suitable for beginning of spring

some little hearts in light green were a perfect addition

and I used this paper together with a lot of various cutting dies

oh, the word SUN is hidden on the right side beside this sweet photo

it’s no wonder, or?!

Is like a message to us, that we have to go on and don’t leave our way

to make the sun shine on us again.

Thanks for your visit!
Have a beautiful time!
