Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

Today I’d like to share some projects I made with my lovely Maja Design papers all the flowers you will see on my projects are all hand made with dies. I love making winter projects although I dislike winter time here in The Netherlands the days are getting colder and the night longer. I love the getting cozy part but the rest not so much. My first project is a 8×8 layout made with different Maja Designs collections.

As I said I love playing with snow effects and I did that massively here on this layout…can you see which collections I have used here? Don’t you just love that picture? Although I dislike winter time I love snow and the peacefulness it brings….hope it will snow this year.

Hello our blog friends. This time I would like to show you my first Christmas Card. I received the Christmas paper collections a long time ago. Couldn’t wait to use them! Finally I can say – the season for the Christmas cards has started ! :) Here is my first proposal :

Christmas Card

I cut out the Santa Claus from the “I wish – Ephemera” paper sheet, then created the background by adding layers one by one. Chipboard, paper flowers, some soft pom-poms and little bells.

Do you feel this magical atmosphere of Christmas here  ? I do :) Hope I will inspire some of you to  creating the Christmas cards, decorations etc. a little bit earlier. Hope this card is a good sign and I will find time to create more projects like this. Hugs, Paulina

I-wish-P

Goodmorning lovely Maja Fans,

Today I am showing you a baby layout using a picture of a beautiful baby girl en the always pretty “Vintage Summer Basics” & “I Wish” collection on the background. Also we are promoting “PETALOO” flowers this month from the 12th – 24th and on this layout you will see a bunch of them. The Petaloo promotion ended yesterday but I was in bed with a nasty respiratory tract infection and got some medication for it so hopefully they will kick in soon. I could not help myself on using their flowers again on my layout so I combined Auntique Rose {item #1837-059} with the Antique Mauve {item #1836-070} and some of the left overs from the teal color.

This layout was also based on this months challenge at the Cuts2luv where I am a guest designer this month & next month. I started my layout by inking the edges of my background sheet with some Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays then I stamped a script and dot clear stamp randomly on my sheet after that I splattered three different sprays on it. I added a stencil on the background too…I cut out four doilies by Cheery Lynn in two sizes and added them in the lower right part of my layout and behind my picture.

Then I treated my chipboard with different mediums and placed them on my layout where I thought it looked nice then I build my page with the flowers and flairs. I finished my layout by adding some sequins, prills, mica flakes, pearlescents and some word strips.

Goodmorning & happy Friday Maja Fans,

Today I am futuring Camilla her beautiful girls on a 12 by 12 layout using the two Maja Design collections “I Wish” & “Summertime” I really love to combine those two. I took the brown out of the first collection and the blues from the second to compliment their pretty dresses. This layout has some playful circles {which would totally fit with the sweet girls on the picture} on them and some lovely flowers by Petaloo and My Little Birdy, I also added some new Dusty Attic chipboard designs.

I had a lot of fun using a bunch of mixed media products on my layout like sprays, stamps especially the stamps by Gabrielle Pollacco from 49 and Market. Don’t you just love this picture?? Camilla you have such lovely girls kind of jealous with a teenager boy in my household lol….

I also used a new stencil by Dusty Attic to compliment my layout and some blue spray by Lindy’s and prills…all the stitch parts are with a sewing machine but the stitches on the picture are by hand.

Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

How nice of you to visit the blog, today I would like to share a 12×12 layout with you using a almost 46 year old picture of my family on moms side. From left to right you see my mom, uncle Evert, my great grandmother Johanna, aunt Ellen, grandpa Arthur and grandma Anna. Oh how much I love those older pictures <3 For this layout I used two collections the pretty “I Wish”& “Vintage Spring Basics”! I took out the purple papers from the last one {to match the flowers I used} and the cream and brown papers from the I Wish collection.

20170224_085035_HDR1

I cut out a V part on top of my layout to use my dusty attic zipper chippie behind the tare then I added a couple of stamps by the very talented Gabrielle Pollacco on my background. Then I used a couple of Lindy’s sprays {purple & brown} to give the papers more shine then I used the script stencil to finish my work. I also stamped around the edges of my layout with a stitch stamp.

The flowers I used have just the amount of shimmer which I like and are from 49 and Market. The chipboard pieces are just inked around the edges and then sprayed with three different colors and inked around the edges again. Then I took out my brush to add some purple mica powder to give it a little shimmer.
