And oh wow the newest collection is so gorgeous you will not believe it <3 … Both cards are with a bunch of handmade flowers made with my favorite dies. For both card I used the same color scheme blues and greens with a touch of creme.

Goodmorning lovely Maja Fans,

Oh was I happy to get my design team package last week the new collection is such a pretty one, that I totally am in LOVE with it. Tomorrow I will be teaching some small classes at a retreat called “Kreadoe” which is much like CHA but a little smaller as it is in The Netherlands. I will be at a stand called De Hobby Boerderij were I will be using a bunch of Maja Design papers so if you will be visiting this retreat please come by to say hello 😉 Today I will be showing you a 12 by 12 layout using this wonderful new collection hope you like it.

maja1000 I did some handstitching on my layout…a while ago I never thought I could make a layout without stitching but now I it’s rare if I do. So I guess things aways chance in scrapbooking. The chipboard pieces are treated with snoweffects the same as I did with the pretty flowers I used on this layout. I fell in love with this sweet picture I got from pinterest that I had to use it.

I really enjoy making wintery layouts although I dislike Winter more than the other seasons.  The centers of the flowers are made with mini prills and little wooden balls (only the larger ones) some of the leaves in the flowers clusters are from a die by sizzix which I adore.

Goodmorning Maja fans,

Oh how I love my beautiful Maja Design papers…..today I’d like to show you a little card with handmade flowers and a lot of bling which is totally not me but I loved making this card. This card is made out of four different collections but my base was the pretty “Summertime” collection. This is a card I made for my mother for the upcoming mothers day hihihi yes I am pretty early this time….

It’s a easel card made out of cream card stock and the flowers are made out of dies and I finished them off with some glass glitter and some mica powder to give it more shine. Also I added some bling swirls, some shine spray & cream prills.

Goodmorning everyone,

Today I will show you my first layout with the super pretty/grungy new “I Wish” collection. As all the collections by Maja Design this one is also very versatile and I used it for non Christmas or wintery layout, actually I made this layout for my colleague {as a surprise I am going to give it to her next Tuesday}. She went to France last September and took a bunch off wonderful picture like this one… I am a hugh sucker for castles, old places, ruins etc so I thought let me use one of these pictures and surprise her.

The flowers I used are from Little Birdie, Dusty Attic and some lilies from a unknown manufacture. These lilies are really lovely to use because you can bent them in every way you want to I used the one my last layout too….. The chipboard pieces are all inked, aged & embossed and are all Dusty Attic!

I used both the 6×6 paper pad as the 12×12 collection to make my layout. I added some Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays & embossing powders and also some stamps and at the end some crackle paste and some art stones {mini & medium}, glass glitter & metal pieces by Finnabair.
