Hello Sweet Maja  fans.

Lenet hereand today I bring you this  layout made with the wonderful papers of the Vintage Summer Collection.

The frame and sentiment are chipboards from Dusty Attic and I colored them with distress embossingpowder from Tim Holtz.

Lately I’m into making  My own flowers , not that I don’t have any but it’s fun to do and this way you always have a matching color to go with you papers and picture .

That is if you use a picture on the project you are making. Another good thing is , I’m using my old flower dies again.

Here are two close ups of the flowers I made for this layout, I added a littleplaterpaste on the edges to give it a little extra. in the center I used stems and 3D balls medium from powertex.

and again I did some fuzzy cutting and stuck them behind the flowers . I love to do the fuzzy cuttig and the effect it gives when you use them like this. It’s just that little bit extra.

I hope you like my lay out , thank you for visiting , stay safe and hope to see you again next time.

 

You & Me

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

The weather has been quite unsteady recently, with cold wind, freezing rain and snow mixed with beautiful sunshine, which is rather typical for this time of the year in Poland 🙂 And so it happens that I’m sharing a winter-time layout on a beautiful spring day! But even though I used a photo taken during Christmas and a winter collection, Holiday in the Alps, with Maja papers characteristic versatility it’s all universal.

I first applied some handwriting pattern with a stencil and gold pearl paste upon the background Monochrome paper and then added a layered cluster of paper pieces and hand-made tags to mat the photo:

I added some flowers in between the layers and some epoxy stickers that perfectly match the stencil paste. Then I arranged the title with alpha stickers mounted on foam:

I completed the page with some metal and art clay elements and sequins for a bit of subtle glam:

I often use flowers in boy layouts and so I did here and I think it still looks pretty masculine 🙂 What do you think?

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stencil: Agateria; paste: Stamperia; flowers: Blue Fern Studios, Wild Orchid Crafts; metal pieces: Mitform; stickers: October Afternoon, Heidi Swapp; sequins: DpCraft.

 

That’s all for today, have a nice weekend and stay safe!

 

I Love You

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog!

Today I bring you another love inspiration – though not about a romantic love, yet all the same beautiful 🙂

I made the layout using the Holiday in the Alps collection. I first applied heart garland pattern upon the background paper and then arranged the matting cluster of layered papers, hand cut tags and filigree chipboard doilies.

I added roses, a clock button and chipboard key and title word embossed with gold ep.

I finished my page off with metallic red pearls and matte gold sequins.

Here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Desgin papers:

Other: stencil, chipboard pieces: Agateria; glitter paste: Pentart; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; punch: DP Craft; button: Prosvet.

 

I really like how the layout turned out, bright and cheerful, and I really how the versatility of Maja papers which can be used for various themes regardless of the collection theme!

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you soon!

 

Wonderful Christmas Time

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today!

I’m very happy to post today, on Christmas Eve, which for many people is an important prelude to one of the two most significant holidays of the year. This evening many of us will sit at a festive table of the Christmas Eve supper with their loved ones to share meal, joy and peace. This is for me the true meaning of Christmas: being together in a greateful celebration of God’s love and our families’ love. And this is what my today’s layout is about: being together in joy and peace 🙂

For my page I used papers of the Traditional Christmas collection. First I layered torn pieces of papers to create a patchwork-like colourful background for the photo I put in the centre and decorated with a cluster of poinsettias, leaves and snowflakes. I also added some hand-cut tags, an elf image and finished it all with liquid enamel drops to imitate snow falling:

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Magnolia, Craft&You Design; glitter die-cuts: BoBunny; accrylic snowflakes: Making Memories; enamel dots: Daily Art.

 

This page shows what I love about Christmas: family time, often with those of us whom we don’t see for most of the year. But we must also think of so many of us who will not be able to do that due to pandemic restrictions that in many countries forbid to gather together. Such times remind us what is most important in our lives: family, love, togetherness – and perhaps we need difficult times to keep this in mind?

I do hope you’d be able to celebrate Christmas with your loved ones and that the New Year will bring us all the change for better. I wish that for you and for myself! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!

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

Continuing the Miles Apart festival 😉 we’re having on the blog, I bring you a layout I made using this beautiful collection:

Having made some smaller projects I shared with you in my previous posts I wanted to make a layout – but believe me, I had the hardest time just choosing the papers! There are so many gorgeous patterns I wanted to show but at the same time I didn’t want to make my page overwhelmed so much that both the photo and papers get lost. I wanted to make it soft and delicate to best compliment the photo of my cousin’s baby daughter. And after much consideration I selected soft blue patterns with a touch of pink flowers against a neutral sand background. First I applied filigree flourishes with a stencil and texture paste:

…then hand-cut some tags:

…then added a chipboard title embossed with crisp white powder:

…and mimicked the printed flower bouquets with dimensional flowers:

I also added powder blue lace to refer to the one in the photo:

I also included some opalescent sequins to add soft shine to my design.

Here’s my list of supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: chipboard: Scrapiniec; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; stencil: Agateria; lace, sequins: my stash.

 

After all that pain 😉 of picking papers I really like the way it turned out! What do you think?
