Hello Sweet Maja  fans.

Lenet hereand today I bring you this  layout made with the wonderful papers of the Vintage Summer Collection.

The frame and sentiment are chipboards from Dusty Attic and I colored them with distress embossingpowder from Tim Holtz.

Lately I’m into making  My own flowers , not that I don’t have any but it’s fun to do and this way you always have a matching color to go with you papers and picture .

That is if you use a picture on the project you are making. Another good thing is , I’m using my old flower dies again.

Here are two close ups of the flowers I made for this layout, I added a littleplaterpaste on the edges to give it a little extra. in the center I used stems and 3D balls medium from powertex.

and again I did some fuzzy cutting and stuck them behind the flowers . I love to do the fuzzy cuttig and the effect it gives when you use them like this. It’s just that little bit extra.

I hope you like my lay out , thank you for visiting , stay safe and hope to see you again next time.

Goodmorning lovely Maja Design Fans,

How nice of you to visit the blog today! As most of you know I love to mix and match collections what is amazing to do with all the Maja design lines. For this layout I used five collections because I wanted to follow a moodboard at a challenge site which was light teal, pink, grey and white. The grey flowers are handmade and super easy to do. The white paper with the clocks is my favorite sheet from the “Crea Diem”collection I used two, from one I cut out the clocks to add extra on my layout.

The grey paper I used as the base of my layout on that one I added the sheet from the “Vintage Summer Basics” in the light teal color. All the papers are distressed and I used  stamps and a stencil on the background. The rest of the flowers are off course by 49 and Market. I love to use pictures of our little Abbey she is growing up so fast trying to say difficult words just to funny she makes our lives compleet & happy.

The chipboard pieces are by scrapaholics and are treated with white gesso, ink, paint, sprays and the words with embossing powders. From the ‘Miles Apart”collection I cut out a whole bunch of roses & leaves that I placed around my picture. The cute little butterflies are from a sheet from the ‘Vintage Spring Basics”collection.

The stencil I used is by the very talented Gabrielle Pollacco whom I totally miss in this creative world….On the 6th of this month it was my husband’s and also my birthday he turned 50 this year I made him a Abrahim lol just too funny. I turned 43 this year a green leaf like he always sais lol hahahaha…..He was so sweet to give me such a nice present he gave me a new sewing machine for scrapping but they could not deliver it because they all had to back because there was something wrong with them {I am so sad about that hopefully I will have it back soon} I miss sewing on my layouts it was one of my trademarks on my work and now it was a long time I did…

Maja Design papers used: Crea Diem: den oersattliga tiden, Nyhavn: king’s square, Vintage Summer Basics: 1943, Miles Apart: the little things & ephemera, Vintage Spring Basics: 6th of May.

     

What are the most collections you have ever used to make a layout? I am very curious I think this is mine but to make sure I really have to go back in time. I will tell you in my next post….have a wonderful day and please stay safe & healthy.

Love

Hello sweet Maja fans,

Lenet here and today I bring you this layout, made with the Winter is Coming Collection.

I know It’s almost spring I n some parts of the world,  but I had to make this winter-ish Layout.

For !,5 week ago we were Iceskating on nature ice and had snow , now it’s all gone and it feels like spring has arrived with nice temperatures and  springflowers popping up everywhere.

I love winter but shure love spring with with its nature awaking and longer daylight.

Without further ado here is my layout.

as a christmas gift I got th button maker from We”r Memory makers . I really love it!,

here you see one of the buttons  I made using the desing papers.  ( the rose with the green background. )

The dark red flower is made by me too.

some more selfmade flowers and  again a self made button  using the  design papers. So coll you have always a matching embellie.

I made some snow with Gesso, glitter and mica flakes. The gorgeous chipboard swirl is from Dusty Attic.

the other flowers are from  49and market. the little ballls  I used as addition to the snow are from Cadence.

So far my post and Layout.thank you for visiting the blog.

Hope you like what I made for your inspiration .

Do’t forget to come back to see what the other Maja Girls made.

Stay safe.

Goodmorning amazing Maja Design Fans,

I am so happy that you find the time to visit our blog today, here in The Netherlands they just decided to have a hard lockdown due covid-19, I personally think that it’s way to late but who am I right? Luckily in my line of work {optician} we can still be open and help the people who need to see but for my husband it’s a whole other story but he can still go to work but we don’t know for how long. Well enough of the covid-19…..today I’d like to show you another layout that I made with two gorgeous collections “Celebration”& “Nyhavn”

This was a fun and easy page to make also because I don’t have many pictures with snow in it….only when Kevin was a cute little boy. For the bottom part of my layout I used the Nyhavn sheet called sitting at the dock which is one of my all time favorites and for the upper part I used the ephemera sheet of Celebration. At that first sheet I used a awesome winter background stamp by studio light with some stazon jet black ink I stamped randomly, then for the upper part I used a stencil by the dusty attic of stars.

The frame around the picture is also by the dusty attic as is the word childhood. With this layout I will be entering two challenges one is a moodboard of winter and the other one is of childhood & to add some gold. The leaves you see on my layout are dies by cheery lynn designs which I cut out from the Maja Designs monochromes and then treated with lindy’s stamp gang sprays.

I added different golden elements on my layout as glitter glass, gold sprays & finnabair wax on the art pebbles as the finishing touch I added some true snow by arleene’s and some butterflies of the coffee in the arbour collection. I also added some flatbackpearls on the frame.

Maja Design papers used: Celebration Ephemera bs, Nyhavn sitting at the dock bs, Mono White Sand bs of the sofiero & Coffee in the Arbour butterflies are free.

   

Thank you so much for being here with us today I hope you like my work… and we would love it if you share your work with us at the Maja Design Facebookpage …..stay safe & healthy…… Love

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.

 

paper sheets: Stay home and , Hopeful + bs

 

some close up’s

Thanks for your visit!

Stay safe and healthy!
