 Goodmorning everyone,

I am very pleased you are here on this wonderful blog with me today. This time I am sharing another layout with you all for this layout I used the “Christmas Season” collection by Maja Design for a non Christmas layout love to do that every ones in a while. I am also very happy that I have a sewing machine again {Oh how I’ve missed that on my layouts} For this layout I went with the darker red, minty & cream shade of colors!

My Precious Baby Girl:

I am in love with the pretty laces “Renea Bouquets” offers they are very delicate & beautiful. I really like to wrinkle my papers so I did that for this layout too I will try to make a short video for you in the near future of how I do that. The background paper I stitched around the edges and I added a Finnabair stencil then I placed my cream sheet on top of that a little out of the middle. Also all the embellishments that I have used are by Renea Bouquets I think they go so well with all the Maja Design papers.

This time I left the beautiful boards just the way they are in the cream tones just like my paper and of course I used a picture of Abbey she is my muze….to finish my layout I added some art stones & some Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays.

In the metal pins I added a piece of paper from the same collection and the glass dome was placed on top of that piece of paper with some glossy accents.

Maja Design papers used: Christmas Season – All wrapped up, Hang the Mistletoe bs & Best Time of the Year

Thank you so much for your visit today. And I sure hope that I have inspired you to take out your lovely Maja Design papers and create and have fun while doing so. Have a blessed & sunny week!

Hugs

 Goodmorning lovely Maja Design friends,

How sweet of you to visit the blog today, here in The Netherlands it’s nice warm weather just as I like it the summer kicked in Oh Yeah!!!. Today I would like to share a layout that’s close to my heart. I made this layout with the newest Maja Design collection called “Tropical Garden” which has beautiful pale & soft tones in it. Why is this layout so special you may wonder well it’s because of the picture {you probably guessed that already} I made this picture without both knowing I did they had a special moment here and I captured it……

I took some of the pink & purple papers and the cut out sheet and I fussy cut the whole sheet. Then I wrinkled the pink paper and used a stencil by Finnabair on the purple sheet. I placed the pink sheet on the purple after I added some pink, purple & white Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays! Then the building a layout begins on the bottom of my picture I added some courd as I did on in the flower clusters too….I really like this part of making the layout. Some of the beautiful board I left just the way it is and on some I added paint & waxes.

Maja Design papers used: Tropical Garden: Soundscape-bs, Exotic Plants, Purple parrot-bs & Diecuts

Monochromes: Shades of Tropical – Orchid

  

 

Thank you so much for your visit today. And I sure hope that I have inspired you to take out your lovely Maja Design papers and create and have fun while doing so. Have a blessed & sunny weekend!

Goodmorning Amazing Maja Design Fans,

 How lovely of you to visit the blog today! I would like to show you another layout I created with some beautiful Maja Design papers & some amazing Renea Bouquets embellishments. Our daughter Abbey really loves flowers and always wants to be surrounded by them. So this time another picture of her in between some beautiful flowers. I also would like to apologize to you all for missing two posts….I had my hands full being a working mom and having two children in two different stages of their lives, so life got a little busy.

I layered three different Maja Design sheets from the Coffee in the Arbour collection, which is a great fit for the pretty lemons. As one sheet has some pretty lemons on it. The top sheet I placed a little on the side as I wanted something different then just straight. The I added some sprays & a stencil which fitted the pretty grid element.

I really enjoy creating with all the pretty Renea Bouquets products just because they go so well with the Maja Design papers. Ans also because they are a feast to the eye…I painted the pretty ivy & the grid element green and then used some of my precious waxes. I also added some waxes on the beautiful boards that I kept nutral.

 On the the yellow upper sheet I stamp with a stitch stamp around the edges to make it pop a little more then on the end I added some beautiful glass hearts which are one of my favorite items by Renea Bouquets and some art stones, pearl fine glitter glass & butterfly kisses butterflies. AlsoI lightened up the centers of the sweet daisies.

Maja Design products used:

Coffee in the Arbour: Feel the Grass, Lemon Meringue Pie & Lemon Meringue Pie bs

Thank you so much for visiting the blog today and I hope I have inspired you to create and show us your beautiful art you can always share your work here: Maja Design Facebook page and I if you like the products I worked with please visit here

Goodmorning & happy April lovely Maja Design Fans,

How nice of you to visit the blog, today it’s my turn to give you some inspiration on how to use your amazing Maja Design papers. For this layout I used the pretty “Miles Apart” collection….one of my new favorites by far. On this layout I used a picture of our little princess Abbey Jane when she was about three months old. All the products I used on the beautiful papers are by Renea Bouquets they are a perfect fit for all the gorgeous Maja Design papers.

As you maybe know by now I am a die hard layout maker, I began about 17 years ago and in the beginning I always made dubble pages but in the process of my scrapbooking years they became single pages. Sometimes I think and start trying to make a double one but that idea never sticks with me for long….for today I have a single page again lol….that started in my mind as a double page.

As you see I ripped the papers in pieces and then layered them the way I wanted to, so the pink papers peak through in one part but I wanted to have the green as my focal point. Behind the green I added the beautiful lace I think lace on your layout makes it really feminine. On top of my green sheet I added a script stencil.

I also added a stamp on the background and some spray for the finishing touch I added some microbeads, art stones & Finnabair waxes {on my flowers and leaves}

Maja Design papers used: Be Safe bs & Distance

  

I told you that I would come back with the answer of how much collections was the most I used on my projects and it was five 😉 Have a wonderful day and please stay safe & healthy.

Love

Goodmorning lovely Maja Design Fans,

How nice of you to visit the blog today! As most of you know I love to mix and match collections what is amazing to do with all the Maja design lines. For this layout I used five collections because I wanted to follow a moodboard at a challenge site which was light teal, pink, grey and white. The grey flowers are handmade and super easy to do. The white paper with the clocks is my favorite sheet from the “Crea Diem”collection I used two, from one I cut out the clocks to add extra on my layout.

The grey paper I used as the base of my layout on that one I added the sheet from the “Vintage Summer Basics” in the light teal color. All the papers are distressed and I used  stamps and a stencil on the background. The rest of the flowers are off course by 49 and Market. I love to use pictures of our little Abbey she is growing up so fast trying to say difficult words just to funny she makes our lives compleet & happy.

The chipboard pieces are by scrapaholics and are treated with white gesso, ink, paint, sprays and the words with embossing powders. From the ‘Miles Apart”collection I cut out a whole bunch of roses & leaves that I placed around my picture. The cute little butterflies are from a sheet from the ‘Vintage Spring Basics”collection.

The stencil I used is by the very talented Gabrielle Pollacco whom I totally miss in this creative world….On the 6th of this month it was my husband’s and also my birthday he turned 50 this year I made him a Abrahim lol just too funny. I turned 43 this year a green leaf like he always sais lol hahahaha…..He was so sweet to give me such a nice present he gave me a new sewing machine for scrapping but they could not deliver it because they all had to back because there was something wrong with them {I am so sad about that hopefully I will have it back soon} I miss sewing on my layouts it was one of my trademarks on my work and now it was a long time I did…

Maja Design papers used: Crea Diem: den oersattliga tiden, Nyhavn: king’s square, Vintage Summer Basics: 1943, Miles Apart: the little things & ephemera, Vintage Spring Basics: 6th of May.

     

What are the most collections you have ever used to make a layout? I am very curious I think this is mine but to make sure I really have to go back in time. I will tell you in my next post….have a wonderful day and please stay safe & healthy.

Love
