Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

I’m so thrilled to bring you another project that  I made using the brand new Everyday Life collection! This set is so versatile that it matches any occasion and so many various themes! Last time I shared romantic, feminine and flowery Mother’s Day cards and today I bring you a masculine layout featuring a totally different colour scheme – and it’s still the same collection 🙂 Love it!

I chose the papers that match the colours from a photo of my hubby and our elder son learning to ride a bike 🙂 I’m happy I was able to capture this moment, so “everyday” and natural and yet so special!

I chose a dark brown paper for the background, so that the photo and all the embellishments pop up. I cut some strips of papers and added a signature strip to make a design grid, put the photo upon them and filled the space with flowers.

I arranged the title using words cut out from one of the papers (don’t you think it’s a great idea? Plenty of words to choose from, too!):

I also included some other cut-out elements, and added gold paint splashes to brighten the whole:

I love how this photo portraits my husband as a loving and caring dad, making sure our boy feels safe and supported. And I’m glad I was able to scrapbook this moment with beautiful papers.

Here’s what I used for my layout:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; clock face: Maya Road; bling: Marianne Design; paint: Ecoline.

That’s all for today, have a nice day and see you soon!

Hello Sweet Maja fans,

Lenet here and today I bring you this  layout made with the beautiful papers of the tropical garden collection.

 

For this layout I did some fussy cutting , I cut both the  birds out of the Cockatoo sheet .

 

And I cut some flowers from the  Exotic plants sheet to tuck them behind  the birds and made a cluster with them in the right uppercorner of the picture.

The purple bird you see here Is cut out of the diecuts sheet.

 

The chippies I used are from  Scrapaholics And I colored them with  tim Holtz distress embossing powder.

I hope you like this layout I made for you.

Thank you for visiting and hope to see you back.

Hello sweet Maja fans, Lenet here.

Today I bring you this layout, using the nlatest collection Bohemian Harmony.

I love this collection, it’s so beautiful and it can be used for all kinds of layouts.

I love it so much that I find it hard where to begin , all these gorgeous patterns and warm colors.

It is hard to cut tose corgeous papers, I think you all know that problem with papers you really love.

Here are some close ups, I used flowers from 49and market and  Scrapaholics.

 

the beads I used are powertex 3D balls, and some dewdrops from Robins Nest.

The chippies are from Scrapaholics.

I added some plasterpaste from Finnabair on the flowers and edges of the papers..

I hope you get some inspiration from this Layout I made for you.

Thank you for visiting and Hope to see you back.

 

Adore.

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

What is your childhood association with summertime? In my family it’s always been blackberry picking and eating, making blackberry pies, dumplings, jelly, eating them with sugar and cream… 🙂 So the singature look for summer kids in my family is a berry tongue! And it’s no different for my kids:

I used the Tropical Garden collection not only because it’s a perfect summer collection, but also because it features that perfect shade of berry purple 🙂 I matted the photo with bits of paper and hand-cut tags and added art clay fern leaves, “berry twigs” with mulberry leaves and die-cut berries 🙂 I also die-cut letters to arrange the title. I finished the layout by spraying some moss-green and gold mist.

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Craft&You Design, Marianne Design; leaves: 49&Market, mists: Prima, fern mold: Prosvet.

 

That’s all for today, see you soon!
