Goodmorning lovely Maja Fans,

Are you enjoying the spring weather…here in The Netherlands we had some pretty sunny days but that is over now, sadly but hopefully soon we can enjoy the sun again. For today I have a layout to share. Two weeks ago my computer died on me and I could not post my project {sorry for that} but now my husband fixed that and I can edit my work again yeah. This layout is made with two collections “Celebration” & “Denim and Friends” and Camilla her lovely daughter Freja <3 is on the picture.

On the beackground of my layout I added the pretty waterdrops stamp by Gabrielle Pollacco {still one of my favorite stamps sets ever} but before I added that stamp I used two other stamps to one crackle and one script stamp. After prepairing my background I treated my chipboard pieces with several acrylic paints layered on top of each other to get a worndown look.

After I treated the chipboards I added my flower clusters. Then I took my photograph and layered it on two sheets of the 6×6 paper pads then I placed it on top of the chipboard frame to get more dimension.  At the end I took out a letter sticker sheet from webster pages and made the word bliss and in that corner I placed a metal piece.

At the end I used some of my white spray and gesso to lighten up my flowers and papers…but I also added some art stones and some sea shells. I think that is it on how I created this layout. I had a lot of fun also because we have a son and I really enjoy making layouts with girls being the focal point.

Maja Design papers used: Celebration: Glamour bs & Champagne bs, Denim & Friends: Streetwear bs.

    

Thank you very much for your visit, I hope I have inspired you to go and create something beautiful with your Maja papers. Have a wonderful & sunny day!

Love xoxo

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

You know I love the Denim & Friends collection as it’s just perfect for all masculine projects! But if you think it’s JUST a masculine collection, I hope to prove you wrong 😉

Yes, a totally girly stuff! Soft and romantic frame with three of my nieces in the photo.

First I assembled a chipboard shadowbox frame and then covered it with Maja papers, inside and outside, inking and distressing all the pieces. For the front coevr I chose to colour with mists as it is too intricate to cover it with papers.

Then I placed a chipboard clockface in the bacgkround, added the photo and surrounded it with embellishments – hand-cut tags, a tiny banner with an opalescent acrylic heart:

…mulberry flowers, resin heart and bird, a butterfly flair button:

…a delicate twig winding around the frame side:

The title is a chipboard piece too:

I also added a flower cluster on the outer side, addding guipure lace:

I’ll add some journaling on the back, which is for now covered with papers:

 

 

 

And here’s my list of supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: shadowbox frame, sentiment: Scrapiniec; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts, Prima; resin embellishments: Prima, button: Lemoncraft; mists: Tattered Angels, golden metallic paint: Martha Stewart.

 

So what do you think of such version of a masculine collection? 🙂 I really like the way it turned out and how the patterns compliment the photo.

And that’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later!

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the Denim and Friends collection. I worked with a photo of my parents.

Mom and Dad by Pascale B.

First I primed the background paper with clear gesso.Then I stamped randomly with a text stamp and a brown ink. Next, I added a design. with a stencil and white crackle paste.

When the paste was dry, I colored it with teal and brown inks.

I die cut some leaves as well as some wildflowers in a watercolor paper. I colored them with the same colors I used to color the background, I just added a touch of purple to the wildflowers. I colored some flowers too.

I added more stamping with a black ink. Next, I cut a few papers to add under the photo and I glued all the embellishments with a 3D gel.

To finish the layout, I added some microbeads.

Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer with you today. I have made the mini album on thick tags ( I have used the tim holt sizzix die for making the tags and cutting the papers from the great Denim and Friends collection).

For now I have put the pictures from the die cut sheet in the album, but they are not sticked and can be easily replaced by the real photos.

 as always, I prefer to use kraft/black accents in my masculine projects. And this collection was also calling for deep blue shades.  aren’t these pictures the cutest? they also come in the paper pads.  some close ups:  also all type of stars look great on the men voted projects, and if you find (or just color the hearts in black) even they will look appropriate here:)

the glorious Denim and Friends collection:

Have a lovely weekend,

Birthday Girl

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

I have recently had the pleasure of making a sweet birthday card for a sweet girl.

 

I used mostly Denim & Friends papers as they matched the colours from the photo most perfectly. I added just a touch of the Vintage Summer pink in the background:

I have die-cut the embellishments from the papers, such as the cute heart banners and the number flag:

I stamped the cute beart with a heart, coloured it and paper-pieced the heart using a scrap of the Vintage Romance heart-patterned paper. I then added a small letter “O” for the girl’s name:

I also added plaid ribbon and some mini flowers and cute white pom-poms as the finishing touch.

And I think the card symbolises the 9-year-old girls quite accurately: still cute, but not too much 😉 What do you think?

Here are my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Marianne Design, Craft Passion; stamp: ScrapBerry’s; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon: Rayher, pom-poms: my stash.

 

Before I bid you goodbye, I’d like to wish you a joyous Easter filled with the warmth of love and kindness 🙂

See you soon!
