Goodmorning lovely Maja Designs Fans,

Today I’d like to show you two 8×8 layout’s made with the amazing new “Joyous Winterdays” I am so in love with this collection because it is really versatile and there are such great patterns on the paper sheets. On the first layout I used the red and green tones in the collection and I named it “All That Glitters”….These layouts are all made with dies to show off the beautiful papers. What is great about that, that your flowers are the same tones as the rest of your layout. I also added some snow accents on the flowers clusters and on the cinnamon piece.

At the end I added some white spray to make it more as a snow effect and used some cream prills on top of the distressed honeycomb die. The centers of my flowers are made out of a metallic flatback gem…..also I added those white fussy balls to spice up the flower clusters.

For my second layout I used the blue and green tones with a touch of cream papers.

On the background of this layout I sprayed some white ink again after that I added a stencil with stars…..then I added the picture and the already prepaired flowers {I made a bunch of them while I was watching tv that is so relaxing} at the end I sprayed some glitter spray on my layout but sadly you don’t see that on the picture.

Goodmorning lovely Maja Fans,

Oh boy do I dislike cold & rainy weather it’s been raining for days {and freezing at night} now at where I live. So for today I wanted to show you a layout made with lots of flowers and a spring picture of my cousin Jaime & her boyfriend Weston who live in the States oh how I love Facebook 😉 This layout was made with both the I Wish & Vintage Spring Basics collection. The flowers I used are by 49 and Market and totally fit the purple color from the Vintage Spring Basics collection like the other flowers fitted with the I wish collection. The chipboard I used is by The Dusty Attic and I treated them with acrylic paint, gesso and rust paste.

First I added some stamps on my background sheet that I recently bought, over that a stencil that looks like my stamp. The outer edges of my layout are punched with holes and then were traced with a blunt knife to get the upward effect you see. On my picture you see a piece of chipboard that looks like strings I added some extra thread on it to match my flower clusters a bit more. Then I added some gesso on top of the thread. To give my layout a fresh look I added some white flowers too….I really love that picture <3

Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

Today I’d like to share some projects I made with my lovely Maja Design papers all the flowers you will see on my projects are all hand made with dies. I love making winter projects although I dislike winter time here in The Netherlands the days are getting colder and the night longer. I love the getting cozy part but the rest not so much. My first project is a 8×8 layout made with different Maja Designs collections.

As I said I love playing with snow effects and I did that massively here on this layout…can you see which collections I have used here? Don’t you just love that picture? Although I dislike winter time I love snow and the peacefulness it brings….hope it will snow this year.

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 lovely Maja Fans,

It’s been lovely weather here in my country up to 25 degrees eventhough, all the leaves are falling from the trees and we have the prettiest colors of Autumn it is nice to not wear you jacket again in October. Sadly it was for just three days because today it’s raining again. For today I have a 12×12 layout using two pretty Maja Design collections “Summertime” & “Denim & Friends” and I am showcasing Camilla her twins {I can not get enough of using their cute pictures <3 }….These pictures are taken in Venice, a city I would love to visit someday.

I have also used some of the monochromes of Denim & Friends {the aqua sheet}….I treated my chipboard with different mediums such as wax, gesso, rust paste, ink & spray. I stamped on my background with different clear stamps by 49 and Market also the flowers are by the same company.
