Hi lovely Maja Design fans,

I sure hope you are all making some vacation memories even in these weird times. I was so happy that I got my Maja Design team box with this new amazing collection inside it, named “Miles Apart” it’s just so gorgeous and it will be released on the 10th of August just six more days and you can play with it yeahhh :-)….I can’t wait to see what you will all create with this amazing new line. Today i’d like to show you a layout I made with “Miles Apart” for this layout I used a picture of our two treasures Kevin & Abbey! I have to tell you all Kevin is just such a sweetheart to his little sister my heart melts when I see him playing with Abbey…

I am so happy that as a creative team member of Maja Design I already get to play with it before the release, and I am sure you will love it too. For the background paper I used the Stay Creative sheet and on top of that I used Thinking of you sheet. That last one I distressed like crazy with water and my hands and when it was dry I added some background stamps and a Dusty Attic stencil. Then I added some Lindy’s flat fabio spray {Chateau Rose} and some starburst spray {My Mojito Green}.

I also added some lace and cheesecloth do add dimension to my layout, to matt my picture I used the 6×6 paper pad….yes there is also a 6×6 pad yeahhhh ūüôā ! All the chipboard pieces are gessod and rust pasted at the end I used some paint also by the Dusty Attic and some finnabair waxes. And then came the favorite part of all adding my flowers I totally went overboard using four different packs of 49 and Market beauties. At the end I added a stamp {on my picture} and some metal pieces and art stones….

Maja Design papers used:

“Miles Apart”: Close at heart, Thinking of you, Be safe, Stay creative and the 6 x 6 paper pad.

I totally feel like a kid in a candy store sniffing the papers and going through every single sheet, and saying oeh and aahhhhh lol you must think I am nuts haha! Thank you so much for visiting the blog today and I hope you enjoyed looking at my work as much as I liked making it….have a wonderful week!

Love 

My beautiful girl

A very good morning to you all,

Today I present you my second layout I made since my creative juices are flowing again….the colors {blue & green} I used are totally into my comfort zone so this layout was created very quickly. And look at that picture I am so totally in love with our daughter it’s nuts. I really like to use the opposite parts of my chipboard pieces that you normally throw away that is what I used here to. Alle the chipboard pieces I used here are treated with gesso and some them later on with Finnabair wax.

The picture in this layout was a lucky shot too….that little girl brings so much joy to our life’s I can’t imagine not to have her. Being pregnant with her was amazing so much better then with our now 15 year old son who also adores his little sister. Here a picture when I was pregnant:

I like to add little details on my work like sequins, art stones, prills and those amazing clocks from a sheet from the “Vintage Autumn Basics”collection. I cut apart I think three of those sheets and keep them in a envelop to use whenever I like to it’s just a little addition on your page. I am a hugh sucker for flowers and especially the ones by 49 and Market because they fit so amazingly well with all the Maja Design papers.

As a finishing touch I added some wax on my white flowers so they blend in a little more. Thank you so much for visiting the blog today. And I will be back posting in two weeks on my normal post day the previous post was Lenet her day that I used because I could not wait anymore to post lol…

Love

These are treasured memories

Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

So nice of you to visit the Maja Design blog today, I am back again posting on this lovely blog, it’s been a while since my last post. Hope you did not miss me too much ;-). For today I have a layout to share that I made for a nice lady who contacted me because she wanted to give her parents a present for their 50th year wedding anniversary. I did replace the pictures because she did not wanted them online….on the pictures you see my parents in law.

I took the dark blues and soft yellow tones from both collections because I think that is a lovely combination. The chipboard I used are off course The Dusty Attic & the flowers are by 49 and Market. On the background I used several stencils by different companies. Let’s have a closer look.

Well hello there Maja Design Fans,

Today it’s me again on this lovely blog to show you a layout I have created with the newest collection. I really enjoy creating with it because it’s so versatile. Lately I am hooked on vintage pictures especially from vintage clothing but also lace umbrella’s, beautiful hats with flowers and amazing dresses they made in the sixties and before and after…so I thought why not make a layout with it, it totally went great with the colors of the “Celebration”collection and the new flowers from 49 and Market what a wonderful combination that is right?

For the background sheet I used the Party bs sheet on that sheet I added some script stamp and later on I added a brick stamp after that I used some pink spray and to soften that up I sprayed with white too. The I ripped the sheet with the flowers “Good times”up and added them on both side the left a little smaller then the right one behind the flower sheet I also ripped the pink sheet to create more demension.

The chipboard I added was already black I just used my waxes on them the give them a shimmer and more depth and also a little color so they would not look out of place. I also used my favorite stencil on my background and at the end I added some crystal drops by nuvo in the color antique rose {which is my favorite} on that same stencil on the round parts that is….

Maja Design papers used: Celebration: Party, The Table is Set, Good Times and the 6×6 paper pad.

   

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 and a very happy New Year to you. Tina with you today to share my project for January.

This layout was inspired by the Dusty Attic Moodboard for the month. I saw it and immediately thought Maja and stylish elegance. And what better way to display all of these than with a wedding photo. A very special photo of my little family from quite a few years ago. But this photo I feel captures all that our day was…..pure happiness and love.

I hope you enjoy this!

“Love”

Every now and then I come across a patterned paper that really projects gorgeousness in itself. And this piece I selected from the Walking in the forest collection is one of those that I am talking of. It was really all I needed to create this project with …….and em

Flannel Shirt bs

538-FlanellskjortaW-bs

This piece which I find just gorgeous with the suttle foliage at the side I find really elegant. My background was stencilled with some hearts and accentuated using paints and texture paste. I also added a very small amount of stamping.

You can see above the minty colour paint I used to help the photo pop from the page.

I did some layering of chipboards to create a base for my photo to sit upon. I then clustered flowers and lace leaves around this to bring the photo to attention.

Here you can see more layering upon the gorgeous piece of Flannel Shirt bs.

And a few more photos from different views…………..

Above you can see the background hearts which have been dressed and heat set to create dimension.

 

Here you can see the gorgeous 49andMarket flowers. These have been layered and clustered around the chipboards.

I have also added some hand dyed soft leaf lace to help soften my project.

Well that is all from me today. I hope you have enjoyed your visit. See you again next time and happy scrapping.
