Goodmorning lovelies,

Today I am up on this lovely blog using my precious Maja Design papers. In my last post I added some questions and I will give you those answers in my August 11th post, the same as I give you my tutorial that day. Sorry for that but I had to deal with some serious personal issues so I have not been scrapbooking as much as I wanted to. Today we will be leaving for our well deserved vacation trip for the next seven day we will be enjoying each others company at a camping ground in the south of our little country we are very excited as you can imagine…, for this post I made a 8×8 layout using only Maja Design papers, dies and a flair.

That sweet picture I got from pinterest oh boy how I love that site…here I used several Maja Design collection such as Vintage Autumn Basics, Vintage Baby, I Wish and Vintage Summer Basics. The centers of my big flowers are made with foamballs that I glued on and dipped in mini prills such a lovely effect that has.

On the background I added some spray’s, stamp and paste. But I also stamped the word sweet on the picture I really do love Gabi her word stamps. What I do when making a layout with just paper and dies….firstly I will cut all the dies that I want to use in different colors then I will make the flowers and their centers and put those together.

Then I it is really easy to make it into one whole piece that you like. At the moment I am totally hooked on the amazing flairs by Cuts2luv that I will use it on almost every single project I make. I wetted my papers to disstress is a little more at the edges I also inked the edges first before I did that.

Good morning, Maja Friends, I’m so happy you’ve found some spare moment in the hot time of Christmas preparations to visit our blog :)

I’m in the middle of that fever too, with getting my home ready for 16 people 😉 and so just a quick post today to share an 8×8 layout:

I selected the ecru, red and brown patterns of the I Wish collection to decorate the photo of my boys in their Santa’s angels suits 😉 I layered the red and ecru papers for the background:

…and added some handmade tags nad the title I cut out from the signature strip:

I also placed a piece of the signature strip across the photo and added a Santa post stamp from the Ephemera sheet:

Then I added the flower cluster with glittery diecuts and a berry twig I found in some cheap store a couple of years ago 😉

I put the layout into a dimensional frame:

….and it will make a home decor Christmas gift for the Grandparents :)

I hope they’d like it!

Goodmorning lovely viewers,

Sunny and warm days are on it’s way as summer soon will land here in Holland! Oh and how I am in need of some sunshine because I have to say I am not such a fan of winter {although the layouts made with winter pictures are wonderful} So for my 8×8 layout I used “Vintage Summer Basics”and one sheet of “Vintage Spring Basics” to get in the mood ;-). As I am also part of the Cheery Lynn Designs DT I am allowed to pick beautiful dies every month and on this layout I used two new ones that I just got last Saturday.

Why a 8×8 layout you may wonder, well that will be because they take less space in my scrap room and they are a little faster  to make {little pieces of art I always say like ATC’s} But also because everything I have to make for Cheery Lynn Designs we have to ship to them for trade show’s like CHA and then it will not take up all of their booth space.

On this layout I added a bunch of layers behind the picture and lifted them up with foam tape as I also did for the 1933 sheet from the “Vintage Summer Basics” collection. If you do that you will get more depth on your layouts. What got me inspired to make this layout well I have to say it was this months mood board that went life on the blog last Monday although I already made a layout inspired by the mood board I totally could not help myself and created another one :-)
