Hello again Sweet Maja fans.

As you could read in yesterdays post of Maja ,  Maja Design is one of the sponsors of the More Than Words challenge and some of us Maja girls had the honour to make some inspirational

work for the main challenge.

The subject is Memories and in addition  you need to uses frames.

Most memories for me are precious, especially this picture of my two kids. My son has autism so not really a cuddler and doesn’t really like physical contact.

I wanted a nice picture from the both of them and he  spontaneously gave her a big hug.  Although they are grown up now ,this still is one of my favorite pictures.

I used some raisinframes I once bought in our local  dollar store, added some embellies and flatback pearls

 

Tucked some small frames behind the flowers

And a little frame peeping through a tear in the paper with a clock symbolizing how fast time goes by.

Thank you for visiting today

I hope I gave you some inspiration with this Lay out,  Don’t forget to drop by tomorrow  for some new gorgeous work of one of the other Maja Girls.

the papers I used are from the vintage summer basics, flowers from Wild orchid crafts  and the frames come from the local dollarstore.

Good morning, Maja friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

In May Maja is the sponsor for More Than Words challenge blog and some of us from the Maja DT took part in the May Main Challenge. The subject was “Memories” and the additional requirement was to use frames. And here’s my take:

Working on this layout was such a pleasure! Memories after all are essential to our hobby, and who doesn’t love using frames? 🙂 Here I combined turqouise and sand papers from the Denim&Friends collection and followed this colour combo, adding touches of gold and white.

First I layered distressed papers for the background and splashed them with golden-brown Prima mist.

Then I mounted my photo upon chipboard frames, randomly selected from my stash and filled with bits of papers:

I completed my design with a flower cluster and buttons:

I also included some acrylic gems and art clay embellishments, like this wing that I coloured with acrylic paints for an ombre effect:

 

I really like the way it turned out, with my favourite colours and a favourite person in the photo 😉

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: chipboard: Scrapiniec, Wycinanka; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; mist: Prima; buttons: Lemoncraft; clay molds: Prosvet; clay: Martha Stewart; gems, stems: my stash.

 

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and drop by tomorrow for more inspiration from my talented friends!

Hello everyone!

Kerstin is back with a vintage layout. I used a very old photo from my ancestors, a beautiful memory for our family. 

 

The latest amazing Maja Design Collection ‘Celebrate’ http://majadesign.nu/products/celebration/
was very suitable to my photo to this very special day so many years ago.

 

 It’s always a good idea to create with frames on scrapbooking layout.

I added a printed chipboard frame on the lower right side with a very wise saying in it.

The second frame around the photo was made with cutting dies and old crafty paper in weathered look.

 some details
fussy cutting flowers from paper sheet ‘You’re invited’ and flowers with
Sizzix Thinlits die ‘Small tattered flowers’ from the papper sheet ‘Glamour bs’
a frame made with craft paper, that’s leftovers from a cutting die
a printed chipboard frame with a wise saying on transparent foil from Scrap FX
Thanks for your visit!
Happy crafting!

The good life

Goodmorning lovely Maja Fans,

Are you enjoying the spring weather…here in The Netherlands we had some pretty sunny days but that is over now, sadly but hopefully soon we can enjoy the sun again. For today I have a layout to share. Two weeks ago my computer died on me and I could not post my project {sorry for that} but now my husband fixed that and I can edit my work again yeah. This layout is made with two collections “Celebration” & “Denim and Friends” and Camilla her lovely daughter Freja <3 is on the picture.

On the beackground of my layout I added the pretty waterdrops stamp by Gabrielle Pollacco {still one of my favorite stamps sets ever} but before I added that stamp I used two other stamps to one crackle and one script stamp. After prepairing my background I treated my chipboard pieces with several acrylic paints layered on top of each other to get a worndown look.

After I treated the chipboards I added my flower clusters. Then I took my photograph and layered it on two sheets of the 6×6 paper pads then I placed it on top of the chipboard frame to get more dimension.  At the end I took out a letter sticker sheet from webster pages and made the word bliss and in that corner I placed a metal piece.

At the end I used some of my white spray and gesso to lighten up my flowers and papers…but I also added some art stones and some sea shells. I think that is it on how I created this layout. I had a lot of fun also because we have a son and I really enjoy making layouts with girls being the focal point.

Maja Design papers used: Celebration: Glamour bs & Champagne bs, Denim & Friends: Streetwear bs.

    

Thank you very much for your visit, I hope I have inspired you to go and create something beautiful with your Maja papers. Have a wonderful & sunny day!

Love xoxo
