 Goodmorning Lovely Maja Design Fans,

Today I’d like to share another wintery layout with you all made with some beautiful Maja Design papers. All though I really dislike winter I do love making layouts like this, and I feel another one coming …. since we had some snow in the last 2 weeks {around 20 cm} I went outside with our little princess {and I took a whole bunch of pictures} I find that snow is very peaceful and you can hear yourself think that’s nice sometimes. But oh does it get messy when melting ughhh. It was a while since there was that much snow.

As you can see on my layout I did some handstitching which I find very therapeutic to do…I kept the colors very neutral and the layout is very clean & simple at least for me. On my background I added a crackle stamp and a crackle stencil. I also distressed the edges a lot on the the beautiful boards I just some sprays and snow but I gessod it first.

I am a hugh fan of of Renea’s Bouquets Moonstone Glass Beads so I added a couple randomly on my page can you spot them? For this layout I used a picture of my husband and son when he was little I could have used some newer pictures but this one is very precious to me. For this layout I used two pretty Maja Design collections “Home for the Holidays” & “Joyous Winterdays”

The frame was treated with gesso and then I added some snow and the amazing Gawdie Girl Diamond Fine German Glitter Glass on top of that snow. I aslo did the same with the snowflake beautiful boards. The butterflies I treated a little to with some spray & snow to make it a little less shiny what looked better on this particular layout. As I said before I really love how well the Maja Design papers combine together….love all my maja papers so much 🙂

Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

How nice of you to visit the blog today, I am so sorry for missing my last post on the 18th but our little princess doesn’t sleep anymore during the day since mid January! So I didn’t have something new to show you all {I am not complaining}. I was asked by Renea from Renea Bouquets to be her guest designer for the month February, March & April. And I off course said yes on that because her products are really amazing, a delight to work with and they really coordinate with the lovely Maja design papers. Don’t you think so too?

For this layout I had a beach theme in mind with the lovely teal and cream papers from the “Denim & Friends collection. I totally went for the distressed look for the borders on this page {used distress oxide -vintage photo-} I also used that on the beautiful boards. The beautiful boards frames Victorian Scroll Frame & 2 Accents are treated with rust effect past by finnabair and later on I added the Blue Lagoon wax to give it the teal look to match my flowers.

On the background sheet {Fashion} I added a stamp and a splatter stencil to give it that beachy feeling. The pictures I used are from our vacation to Spain back in 2010 {doesn’t Kevin look cute??} Oh and boy am I in love with those amazing dragonflies aren’t they the best {Tiny Treasures Suncatcher Teal Dragonflies}

On the background paper I also sprayed with some different colors of  Lindy’s sprays that matched my papers. To finish of my layout I also added some art stones and some gorgeous No hole seafoam glass Microbeads by Renea Bouquets. As you see in the last picture the beautiful boards are very thick and nicely cut and you can also leave them untreated as I did with the words moment & smile.
