Goodmorning to you lovely Maja Design Fans,

Oh boy when Monday the new collection came to my doorstep, I so badly wanted to dig in and create but I had to wait until yesterday to do so due to work. Sometimes I wish that I could create all day and that it is my job to do so….a girl can dream right? Denim & Friends is such a wonderful collection and it has some new designs and more of a masculine rusty feel to it that I am in l.o.v.e. For this layout I used another picture of Camilla her daugthers Tyra & Freja {cuties} I totally love how they smile on this picture and the cloths they are wearing totally fits this collection. That is why the title of my layout is “All Smiles”. I attempted to use all elements that would fit with jeans like buttons, a belt and by tearing and fading the papers.

Don’t you just love the woodgrain paper <3 it’s so gorgeous. Last Monday when I was happy that my DT box came in, another thing happened “my phone” died on me and as I always take pictures of my DT work with my phone you could have imagine how upset I was when that happened. Now I have to take pictures with my old phone and it is not doing my work any justice hopefully I will have my phone back in about 20 day’s {so very long grrr}

The chipboard I used are by The Dusty Attic and I also added some new flower ranges by 49 and Market as well as their beautiful stamps designed by Gabrielle Pollacco {YOU ROCK GIRL} I also added some of her new stencils to the background sheet to give my layout more demension.

The leaves you see are firstly stamped on the monochromes papers then cut out and inked so I could place them in the flower clusters. First I gessod the chipboard pieces and then treated them with acrylic paint and added a layer of glossy accents to make it shine a little that is what I also did with the phrase on the picture.

Hi Everyone,

Its Keren here for the Maja Design blog with a new project.

I created another Thankfulness Book using the Vintage Spring Basics and the Vintage Summer Basics collections.

I kept it monochromatic this time and used several green tones.

I covered a plain notebook from the dollar store with the 11th of March paper from the Vintage Spring Basics Collection and used the back side to cut a small border for the edge using a Martha Stewart Punch. I also used the back side to create some die-cut vines and flowers to embellish around the flowers.

For the doily under the flowers I used the back side of 1904 paper  from the Vintage Summer Basics collection as it was pretty neutral. Then I embellished with some Prima Marketing flowers and vines.

I used the Vintage Summer Basics collection to cover this journal:

and here are the papers I used from the collection:

I'm Keren Tamir a self taught scrapbooker, mixed media artist and designer. Since I was a child, I always loved art. I used to doodle on my notebooks and on anything I could get my hands on. ​ Fourteen years ago I discovered scrapbooking and fell in love with it. One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. Scrapbooking opened a creative door to something that I had longtime forgotten I'd loved. It gave me peace of heart and mind. visit my blog for more inspiration: https://kerentamir.blogspot.ca

Goodmorning & happy Friday Maja Fans,

Today I am futuring another picture of one of Camilla her little girls. When I saw this picture I totally fell in love with it and I thought “well” I need to scrap it. For this layout I used the pretty Nyhavn collection and to accent the beauitful papers I added some gorgeous pink Prima Marketing flowers from the Wild and Free collection the black flowers I added are by Petaloo. I am totally hooked on using flairs ate the moment here I also used one from Cuts2luv.

First I cut a large v part out of the lighter colored paper then I stamped around the edges with the stitched stamp designed by Gabrielle Pollacco. Then I added some distressink victorian velvet with a blending tool and added some text and dod stamps to the rest of the background. Then I used two differents stencils for my layout. The chipboard pieces are by Dusty Attic and the are treated with gesso and ink.

On the stripes and dots stencil I added some black flatback gem stones to make it pop of the page, then I added some lace in the v-shape and sprayed all over my page to soften it up a little. At he end i cut out some clocks form the “Vintage Autumn Basics”collection.

At the end I also added some metal embellishments I just can’t live without those things……This was a lot of fun to make as I don’t have a daughter. These pictures make me happy thank you Camilla for using it…..

Goodmorning & happy Friday Maja Fans,

Today I have a layout to share with you all in honor of being a mom. In life we all want our kids to grow up and be amazing young people and trust in what they can achieve…..Our boy is a charming 12 year old kiddo and I love him to the moon and back. Yesterday was a disaster day of creating that I tore a whole layout apart and threw it away! Am I the only one? Or are there more of you that have that sometimes. A couple of day’s ago I also deleted all my inbox messages from my hotmail too….so I think I am having a bad week lol. Hopefully all will get better soon so I don’t feel like I do now which is rushed…

I used the pretty Nyhavn sheet as my background and added two other colors to make the picture pop of my layout. It’s totally a different style then what I was creating before I trew it away….because that was all pink and girly. I really love to create with pink but this time it didn’t work at all. I used some stencils on my background with some black paste this time.

All the chipboard peices are treated with ink, spray’s, acrylic paint and embossing powder and they are all by Dusty Attic. I also added a flair too I am totally hooked on those at the moment.

The flowers I used are from three different companies which are 49 and Market, Petaloo and Prima. I love making flower clusters like these. They add so much to your page at least that is what I think do you agree with me??
