Welcome and a very happy Valentine’s Day to you wherever you live in the world.

May your day be filled with love, flowers and chocolate, lots and lots of chocolate………..!

Tina O with you here today to share my next Maja Design creation. The title for this layout was taken from a beautiful beautiful quote I found in a big box of rub-ons this morning, one I had not heard of before. But it will be one that I use again one day soon. It goes……

“Love wasn’t put in your heart to stay, love isn’t love until it’s given away”

For my scrapbook layout project here today I kept everything very clean indeed. I did a simple stamped border with embossing powders. Again as always I have added in some fussy cut elements from the Summertime (In the Garden) – Smell the roses patterned paper.

I had the photo printed of twice in two differing sizes and then layered them one on top of the other. I framed one photo with the Summertime (In the Garden) Die Cut frames. The centre was cut from this and then used behind the back of my chipboard window. So cute!!

I have added in some gorgeous lace that has been cut up and layered sometimes 4 times over itself. Some of the lace was left a little distressed to keep with a shabby feel.

I have used lots of yummy Dusty Attic chipboards for this project. They were simply covered with Crackle Paste and coloured with China Black H2O’s, and a little distress crackle and some Star Dust Stickles.

I used a Sizzix Die-Cut for my title “Love”. I layered it up a couple of times and dressed similarly to the other chipboards but I left it a little darker so it could stand out on the page. I also added in some handmade accetates to add to the layout another layer.

Well that is all from me today. I hope you have enjoyed your time here. Stay tuned there will be more again tomorrow. Until then happy scrapping.Tina-sign

Hello Maja Friends,

do you enjoy your Summertime?

I do. I had a great vacation and now I am happy to start crafting again.

and for my today’s post I made a very simple but cute mini album, inspired by strawberries, fields, wild herbs and other advantages of the summertime.

I used the new released Summertime collection and I am in love with it  ( as well as with the rest of the collections too).

This time I tried to use only red and green papers, though the collection has wonderful blue ones. I kept them for the future sea inspired projects.

I used minimum of the embellishments, as I wanted to showcase how beautiful the papers are

Hi everyone. This week I’ve been playing with the new Summertime Collection, and I’m in love with it. This collection has the prettiest colours in it, but I chose to use the gorgeous Reds, Pinks and Creams to create this layout
I used the Garden Bouquet paper as my background, the only thing I did to this is add a doily shape with a stencil and white texture paste.
I used the Lets go for a Ride and Is Always the Best Papers to layer under my photo. To go amongst my layers I cut some shapes from the In The Garden Die Cuts paper and used a doily die on the Light Scarlet paper.
I added some flowers and used leaves die cut from the Greenery Paper. Plus I also tucked pieces of the title strip from the bottoms of the papers in too.
