Goodmorning Maja Fans,

Autumn is upon us again and here where I live the weather is showing us all the beauty of it! Falling leaves and changing colors but also my least favorite part, the heavy wind and the rainy days. Today is a day like that and I’d love to stay in bed under the warm covers….but I have to go to work in a while! This time I’d like to share a Autumn card with you using all dies and my beautiful Maja Papers. For this card I used different collections but mostly “Walking in the Forest”! All the dies I used where cut out a couple of weeks back but I never used them. I am hooked on leaf dies because you can use them for every occasion and this time it’s a Autumn card. It was really hard to take a picture because it is very windy and I take all my pictures outside….and my card almost flew away…..glad it didn’t though.

This card was made out of leftovers it’s so much fun to sometimes dig into your stash and see what you can make with it. I had leftover papers from both of my paper design teams and every once in a while my neighbor gets all my cut out papers to make Christmas cards and all sorts of other cards and projects. Because I am fortuned enough to be on these amazing paper companies that I’d like to share some of that fortune ūüėČ

Goodmorning lovely Maja Fans,

Today I am showing you a baby layout using a picture of a beautiful baby girl en the always pretty “Vintage Summer Basics” & “I Wish” collection on the background. Also we are promoting “PETALOO” flowers this month from the 12th – 24th and on this layout you will see a bunch of them. The Petaloo promotion ended yesterday but I was in bed with a nasty respiratory tract infection and got some medication for it so hopefully they will kick in soon. I could not help myself on using their flowers again on my layout so I combined Auntique Rose {item #1837-059} with the Antique Mauve {item #1836-070} and some of the left overs from the teal color.

This layout was also based on this months challenge at the Cuts2luv where I am a guest designer this month & next month.¬†I started my layout by inking the edges of my background sheet with some Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays then I stamped a script and dot clear stamp randomly on my sheet after that I splattered three different sprays on it. I added a stencil on the background too…I cut out four doilies by Cheery Lynn in two sizes and added them in the lower right part of my layout and behind my picture.

Then I treated my chipboard with different mediums and placed them on my layout where I thought it looked nice then I build my page with the flowers and flairs. I finished my layout by adding some sequins, prills, mica flakes, pearlescents and some word strips.

Goodmorning lovely Maja Fans,

Today I am showing you a beach layout using a picture of myself en the always pretty “Vintage Summer Basics” collection. Also we are promoting “PETALOO” flowers this month from the 12th – 24th and on this layout you will see a bunch of them. You see the promotion doesn’t start in couple of day’s but I wanted to give you a little taste on how pretty they are.

This picture was taken back in 2010 and I never used it on a layout before…all the chipboard pieces are by The Dusty Attic and where treated with white gesso and Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays but also I used some different sizes art stones and some stamps and stencils. The stamp I used is a new one from 49 and Market designed by own very own Pascale….awesome job girl love it!

Spring Flower Card

Goodmorning dear Maja Design Fans,

Don’t you just love the new Denim & Friends collection? It totally rocks for me because of it’s versatility…you can go masculine but also very feminine so for today I did the last one. I went for a girly spring card with a bunch of flowers, chipboard pieces and some shimmery embellishments. I took out the teal colors form the Denim & Friends collection to match my flowers which are by Petaloo & 49 and Market.

20170824_1741441

The chipboard pieces are treated with gesso, spray, paint and metallique wax. I took out a clear sheet and a script stencil by The Dusty Attic and added paste on the clear sheet then I lifted the outer border a little with foam tape. The text is a clear stamp by Joy and I also added a piece of ribbon and a flair {which I totally love to use btw}

20170824_173953120170824_1738361

The sequins are by “Dress My Craft” and are called play with green {but I think they look really teal tho}….this was a super fun card to make and I think I will make more of them. On the outer line paper I did some stitch like stripes to finish my card and at the end I added some sprays.

Goodmorning lovelies,

Today I have a another layout to share for this layout I used two pretty Maja Design collections “Enjoying Outdoors” & “Summer Crush” because both collections had the colors that I wanted to use for it which are purple/pink/peachy tones. This time I used another picture of Camilla her precious twins singing like two little diva’s. My post was for last Friday but I was really busy adding this video so I was not ready in time so I stole this Monday to post with approval of Camilla ofcours hihihi.

Oh this was such a fun layout to make I do have my favorite Maja Design collections and those are not on top of my list but I have to say I think now I will take them out more often. With my precious 49 and Market flowers it is easy to transform your layout in a flowers sea of gorgeousness. As you will see in my video I made this layout through out the day as the light changes during the movie. Have fun watching ūüėČ

Hope you enjoyed my second video ever thank you so much for watching now for the closeups:

On this layout I did some watercoloring but not with a brush but with a piece of plastic….the finishing touches that I have done on this layout are not in my video as I do intent to alter my layout when it is already finished {before I take my pictures}
