Goodmorning Maja fans,

Oh how I love my beautiful Maja Design papers…..today I’d like to show you a little card with handmade flowers and a lot of bling which is totally not me but I loved making this card. This card is made out of four different collections but my base was the pretty “Summertime” collection. This is a card I made for my mother for the upcoming mothers day hihihi yes I am pretty early this time….

It’s a easel card made out of cream card stock and the flowers are made out of dies and I finished them off with some glass glitter and some mica powder to give it more shine. Also I added some bling swirls, some shine spray & cream prills.

Goodmorning Maja friends,

Today I am here with you all to show you a card I made with the lovely “Vintage Baby”collection! I am getting more and more addicted to that collection because of the soft colors and that you have both blue & pink sheets in it. For today it’s a baby boy card with handmade flowers and a rattle shaker with metal pieces in it {also some beads and glass glitter}

20161214_133401_HDR000000000001

I cut out different pieces of the blue & darker brown papers and placed them on top of each other to get more dimension, underneath the last layer I added some cheese cloth and a paper doily that I cut in half. The card is all made out of dies from a manufacturer I design for. Sorry for the different shades in the pictures but we have some bad weather and my camera is acting up!

What is great about using dies is that you can make your own flowers and you don’t have to worry about the colors not fitting well on your work. I always had a problem finding the perfect blue shade color for my work and now that problem is being solved by making my own flowers. Maja Design papers really allows you to make beautiful paper flowers from their collections because of the high quality & thickness of the papers.

Actually I used three other Maja Design collections here too, the blue flowers are made with “Nyhavn”collection! The flower with the beads in the center is made with the “Vintage Romance” collection and the feathers & leaves are from the “Vintage Summer Basics” collection and they all go so well together don’t you think so too??

Maja Design papers used: Vintage Summer Basics: 1905 bs, Nyhavn: Old Townhouses bs, Vintage Romance: Marriage proposal bs, Vintage Baby: It’s a boy bs, Adorable bs, Special Delivery bs & Die cuts bs

Hi lovely friends,

Today I would like to share some cards with you using different Maja Design collections. I have to say I am totally hooked on using Maja Design papers so for every project I make I always think which of their collections will fit my theme…..all the cards I will show you today where made for my DT work at Cheery Lynn Designs {a die manufacturer}! But using my precious Maja Design papers……

Sweet Love:

For this shaker card I used the pretty “Vintage Romance” collection and just plain creme card stock and a bunch of dies. I really love the dimension of the flowers that’s what the papers do because of the high quality they are.

For my third card I used the amazing “Vintage Autumn Basics” collection and for the centers of my flowers I used micro beads which I think worked out really pretty. The background sheet with the blue flowers is one of my favorite papers from this collection.

Goodmorning lovelies,

Today I am filling in for the lovely Elena Olinevich {and she will have my day next week} with a layout I made out of three different collections. I used a picture of my men that I took on our vacation in Turkey. Also on this layout I used a bunch of Dusty Attic chipboard pieces that I treated all differently I painted, embossed & stamped them. The collection I used are “Vintage Spring Basics”, “Nyhavn” and “Sommartider”……..every flower except the black ones are hand made with lovely dies.

20160902_083117_HDR1

For the first time ever I used straws on my layout……I totally love it! I did see it a lot on scrapbook pages that I had to try it too. I love this color palette especially because purple is my favorite color to scrap. All the chipboard pieces are first gessod and later on painted with Dusty Attic acrylic paint and the circles with the text in them are embossed with Lindy’s Stamp Gang powder. On the frame I added some text stamp on the end.

I enjoy using all the metal pieces there are in this hobby but I have to say I am running out of them and they are not for sale anymore here in The Netherlands it is sad that they are not here forever lol……I so love this picture of my handsome men I am the luckiest woman on this planet.

I did some mixed media on the background too I can’t imagine to not use spray or paste on my work anymore they so give your layout the wow factor hihihihi…..

Goodmorning lovelies,

Oh boy is it stinking hot here in The Netherlands with temperatures above 30 degrees feels like Turkey all over again! God is good 😉 We had a great time on our vacation destination but it is also really nice to come home. I have to admit I am very lazy the last couple of days my head wants to scrap but my hart is not letting my head to do so…..So for today I have a simple layout for you all it’s a 8×8 inch one I love making those because they take lass space in my scrap room.

20160826_1036301

Since my printer is acting up I had to use another picture for this layout. Don’t you just love the new Summertime collection as much as I do. As you see on this layout I hand made my own flowers again. I will also show you a layout that I made for my other design team I am on using as much handmade flowers as I could on a 8×8 layout. Hopefully you will enjoy my work.

The picture was take back in 2010 and he was writing his name in the sand. I really love the bikes in this collection so I did not cover it up with flowers. To finish my flowers clusters I used some real sea shells.
