Goodmorning everyone,

Happy New Year everyone I hope this year will be much better for everyone then 2020 was……Today I’d like to show you my latest layout. For this layout I combined two collections “Miles Apart”& “I Wish” I really like how well all collections of Maja Design go together…now pink/cherise/peachy & brown always look awesome don’t you think?? I off course used a picture of Abbey the first time next to a Christmas tree a nice memory for her.

I made a layout with lots of layers which I really like to do it gives your work more demension. The brown sheet of the I Wish collection I used for my base underneath that sheet I used the ‘a few words’ sheet of the Miles Apart collection. On the background I used the distressed script stamp by Creative Embellishments with some clear embossing ink and some purely white embossing powder By Lindy’s Stamp Gang.

Then I distressed like a crazy woman ohhhh did I went nuts sometimes you need it to get your shit together. Then I placed the slightly smaller sheet on top of my background with underneath the same sheet as I did behind the brown one. Then I used about four different Lindy’s sprays to compliment my background.

Then I placed the flowers around like I wanted them just like I did with the picture….you see some handmade leaves too in my flower clusters those are made with Cheery Lynn Designs dies and sprayed with lindy’s sprays gold & green. The I added some metal stars & some chipboard Gears by Creative Embellishments.

Maja Design Paper used: Miles Apart: a few words & keep in touch and I Wish: those memories will last.

   

Thank you so much for being here with us today I hope I have inspired you… and we would love it if you share your work with us at the Maja Design Facebookpage …..stay safe & healthy…… Love

Hello Maja Design friends. Thankyou for returning here today. My project I am sharing with you uses the gorgeous gorgeous collection of Miles Apart.
This is  “My love for you”….
It was when I was going through the absolutely stunning paper collection of Maja Design’s new release “Miles Apart” that I came across a quote from the barcode strip of “Keep in touch”, that I knew this was my starting point.
The quote reads:
“If you listen to the wind very carefully, you’ll be able to hear me whisper my love for you”.
Just beautiful don’t you think? So I found my photo to work with this and went to work. I made lots of layers using torn papers from the Maja collection in the tones of the blues and apricot as in the moodboard below. I couldn’t believe really how close these colours were.

 

They are as listed below.

 

Keep in touch “A”
“Keep in touch “B”

 

“Keeping Busy” “A”

 

 “Keeping Busy” “B”

  
I did a little embossing in white around the outside of the background using a stitching stamp from 49andMarket. I also added in some texture using Rangers White Crackle paste and some random stamping in Archival Ink in Watering Can. The barstrip with the quote was cut up and distressed.
 
I used a number of gorgeous pieces of Dusty Chipboards some you will probably have to look very hard to see but they are there. For me it is all about the layers. So starting off once all my paper layers were down I added in the new release chipboard the “Flowering Vine”. I have used the smaller vine from this pack. It was dressed in white crackle paste along with Inka Golds in the colours of mint and apricot.

I have used a number of flower packs. Some from 49andMarket and some from Prima Marketing to create my flower clusters.

 

Lots of lace and leaves with pretty flower pearls and muslin were also added in amongst these layers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well that is all from me today. I do hope you have enjoyed this blogpost. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very blessed and safe Christmas and New Year.
Can’t wait to see you all back here again next year.
Thanks for calling by.

Goodmorning lovely Maja Design Fans,

Today I would like to share another layout with you all, but first I want to tell you that if you head on over to my blog you could win one off three collections by Maja Design visit here ==> Amy´s Pretty Papers <== now to my layout! For this one I used my new favorite collection “Miles Apart” I just can’t believe how pretty this collection is can you? I totally went crazy on the fussy cutting part. For this layout I wanted to create a romantic scenery with lace and lots of layers I was totally inspired by the Dusty Attic moodboard of November while creating this layout. The picture is truly my most adorable {and favorite} picture I have of my handsome boy & little princess.

First I cut out the middel part of the thinking of you sheet, 2 centimeters to be exact around the edges. Then I distressed both pieces as much as I could with a tool then with my fingers to make the papers kind of curly at some places. Then I moved my chipboard pieces around and around {I think that took me two whole hours “Oh Boy”} until I liked where I put them.

Then I took the chipboard away after taking a picture first…then you see I added lace in the upper left corner and in the lower right corner and that’s how the papers stay on it’s place {didn’t use any glue here} after that I used some stamps, a stencil, modeling crackle paste & and a bunch of Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays on the background sheet.

I also used the stencil with some of that same paste to alter the frame around the picture {I had never done that before} but it turned out great at least that’s what I think 😉 hehe Then I treated the rest of the chipboards with white embossing powder by Lindy’s Stamp Gang and later I added some waxes by Finnabair on them too…to finish of my layout I added some prills & sequins and of course some gorgeous butterflies <3

Maja Design papers used: Close at Heart, Thinking of You, Thinking of you-bs, A Few Words-bs and Ephemera, Coffee in the Arbour papers used: Butterflies are free

Welcome creative friends!

Have you yet seen our latest amazing paper collection ‘ Miles Apart’ ??

If not – check them out! You’ll love them!

Delightful colours and inspiring motifs, I was immediately in love with the motives.

I think it’s a beautiful mixture of soft colors that are also suitable as background for masculine layouts maybe in grundge style.

I have decided for a 12 x12 layout in vintage style suitable to the grey month November but also to this difficult times for all of us.

 

paper sheets: Stay home and , Hopeful + bs

 

some close up’s

Thanks for your visit!

Stay safe and healthy!

Twist and Pop Card

Hi there! I am back with a new card. And I have tried to make a Twist & Pop Card, which is my first time. But I understand that they have been popular some time. It was fun to make one, so you should have a go too!

After making some pinkish wedding projects, I have tried to give this card a more Autumn look. This collection is wonderful for that too.

The Magnolia image is coloured with Distress Ink, reinkers and Markers. The sentiment is also from Magnolia. I have cut out the leaves from different Miles Apart papers.

To make this card I have watched Srushti Patil’s tutorial on YouTube, called Twist & Pop Card Tutorial.

Here is how it looks like when it is open. The inside is decorated with yummy Miles Apart papers.

And I have tried to show how it looks like when you close it.

 

 

Almost there 🙂

 

 

I have painted here and there with white Gesso. In the middle of the sunflowers (and in Tilda’s hair) I have put some liquid pearls. Behind the image there is some cheese cloth.

Some more details from inside of the card. You can decorate it however you want. With images, sentiments ect.

 

 

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Blog!

With love,
