Hello Maja Friends, it’s Elena here to share several cards I made playing with the purple hues.

Each time the leaves left the trees, and the landscape is dull and grey around, I start to look for some bright colors, and I’ve noticed each November I turn to lilac and purple hues.

For my cards I used Enjoying Outdoors collection, so rich and so beautiful for the mature Autumn Season.

I made a lot f die cutting and used the pearlescent gold and white cardstock for my die cuts

They pop up on the purple background, you can notice

However I added the white and pale pink flowers, I wanted my cards to be feminine and soft

I made 3 more cards using the other one sketch

But actually I used the same die shapes for my paper layering

I like adding the pearls as the finish touch to my frames

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.

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.
