Goodmorning Lovely Maja Design Fans,

Today I am filling in for the lovely Nancy since she always makes such lovely cards, I’d like to show you a card I made with the newest collection combined with “Vintage Spring Basics” & “Vintage Autumn Basics”….although she is a queen in making cards I tried to make this card a pretty as she always does. The flowers I used are by 49 and Market and the stamp is designed by our very own Pascale….I just love the clock sheet from the Vintage Autumn Basics so much I almost always use them on my work what is you favorite Maja Design sheet?

I just cut some of the leaves from You’re Invited sheet to add to my flower cluster I just love how that turned out. Since I am a sucker for the color purple I do love that combination with the new collection. The chipboard I used are by The Dusty Attic and to match them to my card I added some wax on them.

Maja Design papers used: Celebration: You’re Invited, You’re Invited bs & the 6×6 Paper Pad, Vintage Spring Basics: 10th of April, Vinatge Autumn Basics: no.XVI

     

I would also like to show you some masculine tags I made for a different design team but with the lovely Maja Design “Celebration”collection.

Thank you so much for your visit I hope I have inspired you to play with your Maja Design papers you have in you stash or even order new products I have used here.

Well hello there Maja Design Fans,

Today it’s me again on this lovely blog to show you a layout I have created with the newest collection. I really enjoy creating with it because it’s so versatile. Lately I am hooked on vintage pictures especially from vintage clothing but also lace umbrella’s, beautiful hats with flowers and amazing dresses they made in the sixties and before and after…so I thought why not make a layout with it, it totally went great with the colors of the “Celebration”collection and the new flowers from 49 and Market what a wonderful combination that is right?

For the background sheet I used the Party bs sheet on that sheet I added some script stamp and later on I added a brick stamp after that I used some pink spray and to soften that up I sprayed with white too. The I ripped the sheet with the flowers “Good times”up and added them on both side the left a little smaller then the right one behind the flower sheet I also ripped the pink sheet to create more demension.

The chipboard I added was already black I just used my waxes on them the give them a shimmer and more depth and also a little color so they would not look out of place. I also used my favorite stencil on my background and at the end I added some crystal drops by nuvo in the color antique rose {which is my favorite} on that same stencil on the round parts that is….

Maja Design papers used: Celebration: Party, The Table is Set, Good Times and the 6×6 paper pad.

Goodmorning sweeties,

My husband’s aunt has three beautiful daughters and the oldest one just has a daughter herself {so there will a layout with the little Fenna really soon}, they always take pictures together and I love using them on my work. The one you see on the left is the oldest and her name is Annelijn, the one in the middle is Lidewij and the youngest is Marielot you see her on the right….For this layout I used the pretty NEW “Celebration” collection with a touch of yellow from the “Vintage Spring Basics”collection. The chipboards I used are by The Dusty Attic and the flowers are the new ones mixed with the older 49 and Market collections.

First I cut the Anniversary sheet in half then I put the outer edges together and cut about two cm’s from the outer edges what first were the inner edges {can you still follow lol} Then I turned the sheet 90 degrees after that I added a pretty grammar stamp by our lovely Pascale and a script stamp by Gabrielle. Later on I sprayed with some lindy’s and added a hearts stencil to my background sheet. All de edges of the paper I inked and distressed. Some of the chipboard pieces were already black and the other ones I gessod black and at the end I used a paintbrush with some white gold wax.

Maja Design papers used: Celebration: Anniversary & Glamour, Vintage Spring Basics: 1st of March. Mono Celebration-Pearl & Mono Celebration-Old Brass.

Goodmorning Maja Fans,

Are you loving the new collection as much as I do? What I love about it, is that it has some black/grey sheets in it. Today I would like to show you four mixed media tags I made with the black/grey & pink papers. I also used the pictures in the collection, something I don’t do very often & some older Prima Marketing flowers that I had in my stash for some time now and some of 49 and Market. And of course some Dusty Attic chipboards…..

The size of the tags are 10 cm by 15 cm and I cut the patterned at 4 cm and the other part 6 cm. Then I stamped on there with two different background stamps by Creative Embellishments after that I sprayed with two Lindy’s sprays to soften the black a little then I added a stencil and some cheese cloth. I was also inspired by our mood board for this and next month hope you are to and play along.

Maja Design papers used: Celebration 6×6 paper pad.

For this layout I also used some different flowers then I normally do the white ones are by 49 and Market and the other from a different brand. This layout consists out of three layers and I used the green and blue shades again I really love that color combination. to fill up my flower clusters I also added some pine cones and some die leaves.
