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.

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

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

I Love You Lil’ Darlin

 Goodmorning Lovely Maja Design Fans,

Today it’s my turn again on this lovely blog and this time I’d like to share a steampunk layout. On the picture you see  my handsome husband with our tiny little girly in the shower. I don’t know why I assosiate black with steampunk but I do, I used one of the darkest pages Maja Design offers to make this layout. The papers are distressed and I added a Finnabair stencil on it and a script stamp.

When I could choose my Guest Designer Package I was focussed on the black lace, flowers, butterflies and chunky glitter glass and went around that creating my layout. The beautiful boards are treated with some different mediums…I used Finnabair rust effect paste, waxes and black gesso on some of them and on the other pieces I used some lindy’s sprays and a script stamp.

I think the pretty hinges are so cool to used they are very detailed and I have to tell you I am a sucker for chipboards like that kind of steampunk stylish. For me this layout is kind of clean and simple and that is sometimes nice to make as well if I had more flowers I would have added them all lol….

I have tucked the lace in the rips that I made in the papers I always wanted to try that but I never did…To finish my layout I added some amazing black chunky glitter glass and I also added some rub-on words.

Maja Design papers used: Celebration: Ephemera bs & Vintage Summer Basics 1912 bs.

Let it Snow

 Goodmorning Lovely Maja Design Fans,

Today I’d like to share another wintery layout with you all made with some beautiful Maja Design papers. All though I really dislike winter I do love making layouts like this, and I feel another one coming …. since we had some snow in the last 2 weeks {around 20 cm} I went outside with our little princess {and I took a whole bunch of pictures} I find that snow is very peaceful and you can hear yourself think that’s nice sometimes. But oh does it get messy when melting ughhh. It was a while since there was that much snow.

As you can see on my layout I did some handstitching which I find very therapeutic to do…I kept the colors very neutral and the layout is very clean & simple at least for me. On my background I added a crackle stamp and a crackle stencil. I also distressed the edges a lot on the the beautiful boards I just some sprays and snow but I gessod it first.

I am a hugh fan of of Renea’s Bouquets Moonstone Glass Beads so I added a couple randomly on my page can you spot them? For this layout I used a picture of my husband and son when he was little I could have used some newer pictures but this one is very precious to me. For this layout I used two pretty Maja Design collections “Home for the Holidays” & “Joyous Winterdays”

The frame was treated with gesso and then I added some snow and the amazing Gawdie Girl Diamond Fine German Glitter Glass on top of that snow. I aslo did the same with the snowflake beautiful boards. The butterflies I treated a little to with some spray & snow to make it a little less shiny what looked better on this particular layout. As I said before I really love how well the Maja Design papers combine together….love all my maja papers so much 🙂

Maja Design papers used: Joyous Winterdays: Glisten bs & Mr Snowman bs, Home for the Holidays: Together
