Goodmorning lovelies,

Today it’s my turn again on this lovely blog and i’d like to share a 12×12 layout using several beautiful Maja Design paper collections. This time I have used a picture of my little family this picture makes me smile because hubby didn’t want to have his sunglasses on and now it looks like he needs to poop lol….

For my layout I used a whole bunch of new {well for me they are new} stamps from 49 and Market for the background. but also for my chipboard pieces. I just love the way this layout turned out because purple is my favorite color. The chipboard are all by Dusty Attic and I colored them with two different color distress ink + Faber Castell gelatos fig. Also I used some of the cute lavender prills…..and some paste with a stencil.

The flowers are by Little Birdie and Prima Marketing I was planing on using some amazing shimmer flowers by 49 and Market but somehow I ended up with these…..I really love the brown background sheet I used because of the text on it and that you can use it for any occasion.

For the first time I actually used a blending tool to do the colors on the background except the purple Lindy’s Stamp Gang spray I used it was totally different for me but great to do. I also cute out two sizes Cheery Lynn Designs French Pastry doily’s to add behind different parts of my layout to give it more flair.

Hi everyone,

I’m super excited to be joining the Maja Design DT and today I’m showcasing my first project.

I created a Shabby Chic Journal Cover to give as a gift to someone and I knew the Vintage Spring Basics collection were perfect for covering the journal.

Below, is a short step by step video tutorial on how I created it.

Here are some close-ups of my journal cover:

To create texture in the background I used a script The Crafters Workshop stencil with some modelling paste. I wanted to keep it very clean and shabby.

I used some matching Prima Marketing flowers, leaves and vines to embellish the book.

The doily under the flowers was cut out of the 7th of May Vintage Spring Basics paper using Prima’s die-cut metal doily.

To cover the book I used the April 3rd paper and for the doily I used the May 7th paper from the Vintage Spring Basics collection below.

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

The cute little butterflies are cut out from a Vintage Spring Basic pattern paper. I have just inked them on the edges with Distress Ink pad, Walnut Stain; as all the paper edges. The heart tags are made with a Doohickey from Magnolia, others are made mostly with dies from the DooHickey box vol 9, Fairytale.

Some new texts on my tags this time, they are from the Norwegian magazine Ett Trykk, Norsk Stempelblad. I have been chosed to be one of their guest designers for 2017. There will be six magazine this year, and in each you will among many others find some of my cards. And ofcourse I use my Maja papers 😉

The tags are made with Bazzill Kraft and I have added some Maja papers to finish the cute look :) The shape of my card is made with a GoKreate die. The lovely laces are from the shop LLC, the same as my doilies. And as you see I have coloured with white Gesso here and there.

Goodmorning lovelies,

I hope you are all doing well and enjoyed your time spent with family at Christmas. Oh boy is it cold here in The Netherlands brrr so that’s why I made some simple wintery cards to show you all made out of scraps. From time to time I love to use my leftover Maja Design papers and make something pretty this time I made these cards.

“Merry Christmas” by Tina Ollett

Hello once again. Tina O with you here today with a little Christmas cheer.

I, as a rule do not do cards, but I felt as I should as we a coming into Christmas in only a few days time. With this in mind and the fact that it has been a long time since I have created a card, I have kept it pretty simple. I wanted to do something a little vintage with a shabby touch.

2016-12-20 maja card 008 (718x800)

To create this card I started with a Kraft Cardstock base and cut a 23 x 10cm card base. The top of this was then layered with some Dusty Attic corrugated board. And on top of the corrugated I have used the new “I Wish” collection. Because I wanted a vintage feel I stayed with the rustic brown colours with the addition of cream and green. I tore section of both “Those memories will last” bs and also “You a happy New Year” bs. These would have to be my favourites pieces from the collection as you will remember I used them in a previous layout using the I Wish Collection.

2016-12-20 maja card 011 (600x800)

The christmas leaves I have used for this project were dressed with some Walnut Gold glimmermist to take away the darkness of the green but also to add in a touch of gold.

2016-12-20 Maja 005 (600x800)

I wrapped the corrugation with a large piece of twine and left it hanging to the side. Over the top of the twine I added in some Dusty Attic Baroque Chipboard to cover my knot which was embossed and sanded.

2016-12-20 Maja 010 (600x800)

I have cut the postage stamp from the Ephemera Sheet and added it tucked above the cluster just peeping out.

2016-12-20 Maja 006_edited-1 (600x800)

I dry brushed my embellishments with white gesso to tone the card colours down a little and to keep within the shabby/ vintage style.

2016-12-20 Maja 003 (600x800)

My title “Merry Christmas” was cut from the base strip of “I wish those memories would last”. These are always perfect for that little added addition to any card or layout. So don’t throw them away!!
