Good morning Maja friends!

– Be brave, be happy , be a dreamer –

Every thing is dancing to my whistle ūüėȬ†that was my motto for this funny layout.

Kerstin is here and I had a lot of fun with this old and very cool photo and thought

our newest paper collection ‘Celebration’ is more as suitable

for a vintage layout, which should make a little bit good mood

 in our gray everyday life.

I used our latest amazing Paper collection ‘Celebration’

 

and some details

I cut out some from this beautiful man silhouettes and used this people to frame the Black/ white photo.

 

and I love the borders from this papers,

dancing people have a happy and funny appearance, a perfectly addition, right?!

Thank you very much!

Have a wonderful time!

Sweet

Hello  dear Maja fans.

Today it’s my turn again to inspire you and this time I have a tutorial of how I made this lay out for you.

For this one I used the beautiful papers of the summertime collection.

 

For the background I used the backside of Flowers every where. I high-lighted the area where want my to make my composition with some gesso

While the gesso is drying  I cut out some roses out of the smell the roses sheet, those I will tuck behind the picture and papers later.

 

When the gesso is dry¬† I made splatters with¬† Lindy’s flat fabio”s sidewalk chalk and queen of hearts red.

Than I added some random stamping when the splatters were dry.  To see what  the stamp and what color ink I like and want to use,

I did some test stamping at the place that will be covered with the papers. This way I can have a better look at what feels right for me.

I decided to use Pink petunia from versaMagic.

After choosing the papers I want behind my picture, cutting them in the right size I distress the edges with mt paperdistresser from Making Memories

I have this one for I think 10 years used it a lot and really love it. I tried other distressers  when the were introduced  but always went back to using this one.

For sticking the papers on to the papers I use  foamtape because it gives your layout some demension.

I always stick it in the middle so you can tuck flowers or other embellies behind it later on.

Because i own a lot of supplies I never used I gave myself the challenge to try to use some oldies on every project I make from this layout on..

This time I took these Prima flowers. I crunched them to these flowers and  tucked them with the roses .

I love the the way the look now so I’m sure I will use this more often in the future.

   

After sticking the papers and picture on to the background , I embellished  it with roses from Prima, badges from cuts2luv , pearls from the dollarstore.

The leaves are made using  Monochromes shade of Sofiero РCelery/Sage with dies from My favorite things and the swirly ones I think from Marianne Design.. and l tucked the roses I cut out earlier between the layers of the papers.

The edge with the little hearts is made with a punch from Martha Stewart. the word Sweet is a chippy from dusty attic that I colored with black embossing powder.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that it inspired you .

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today ūüôā

I’ bringing you the layout I made using our latest release, the Celebration collection:

The layout is cheerful and light, featuring the subtle mauve and cream colours of the collection – yet it contains a strong message that I used as a title-journaling, taking advantage of the signature strip it was printed on:

Then I placed my photo upon layers of pieces of papers. I tried to showcase as many beautifull patterns as possible ūüėČ I added a chipboard clockface and some flowers:

Splashes of mists in matching colours, glitter ink dots and printed cotton ribbon add some shine to the page – it’s about life celebration so a bit of glam doesn’t hurt ūüėČ

The layout also proves that boy layouts can employ pink shades without going too sweet ūüėČ Don’t you think?

And here’s what I used:

Other: flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; mists: Tattered Angels; glitter ink: 13@rts; chipboard: Wycinanka; butterflies: UHK Gallery; ribbon: my stash.

 

That’s all from me today, thank you for visiting and hope to see you later!

Hello this is Lenet,

here I am with my second layout , this time I used papers from the gorgeous new collection Celebration.

I really love the vintage feel of the sepia/grey /black papers and thought the were perfect to use for this lovely picture of Billy Holliday.

I used three different papers each a little smaller than the other for my background. I made some crackle with embossing paste and a mask,

and made it a little smudged and old looking with some tea stain distress ink.

As for the mat behind the picture I used the monochromes Shades of Celebration ,that come with this new collection.

On the picture I placed a pearly¬† and black rhinestone border from want2scrap and some gardenia’s the flowers she always wore in her hair.

The round black chippie with the word lovely is from Dusty attic the flowers from Prima, Wild Orchid crafts and 49and Market

On both sides of the picture I used a cut in half swirly corner from Dusty Attic that I colored with black glitter embossing powder I mixed myself.

That’s it for this lay out, I hope you like it.

Thanks for visiting,
