Hello  Sweet Maja Fans,

Lenet here and today I bring you this this layout .

I made this layout using the  wonderful papers of  the Summer Crush collection.

I layered some sheets and distressed the edges.  For the top sheet I used my sewing machine and zigzagged it on to the other sheets.

The chippies I used are from Scrapaholics chipboards .I painted those in the color I wanted and gave them a top layer of clear embossingpowder.

The flowers I used are from Prima and 47andMarket.

 

I hope you like my layout, see you next time .

 

 

 

Enjoy Life.

Hello Sweet Maja Fans.

Lenet here  and today I bring you this layout, made with the celebration collection.

With everything going on I think it’s very important to look for the little postiteve things and celebrate them.

that’s why I chose to use  the ” The more you praise and Celebrate your life , the more there is in life to celebrate ”

quote on the strip from the Champagne sheet of the celebration collection.

The picture of the little girl inspired me to make this layout. She is smelling the delicate flowers and clearly enjoys them.

one of the things that I think should be celebrated in life, the beauty of mother nature.

 

 

 

Besides the wonderful Celebration collection I used chippies from  Scrapaholics, the Lattice pieces, the Ivy Vine Spray set,  and the Enjoy Life sentiment from  The Life Moments set.I colored them with  Embossing poweder from WOW and distress embossingpowder from ranger/ TimHoltz.

The flowers are from 49 And Market. The flatback button with the butterfly I made myself with the Button Press from WeR.

Thank you for visiting , hope you like my layout.

Stay Safe and hope to see you back.

Hello and welcome back Maja Design friends. I hope this post finds you safe and well. Today I am back to share my next project using the gorgeously stunning paper collection of “Miles Apart”. The pastel colours of this collection always lead me to using Sepia photos. And close at hand was this photo of me from our wedding day quite some years ago. I have never used it before, so I am really glad that I chose this range to scrap with it.

I selected the sheets below to start off my project. I used the bs of “A few words” for my background page. I love this piece with all the additional handwriting and slight colouring over the background. I made lots of layers using “Keep in touch” and “Keeping busy” both a and b sides of each was used. I distressed my papers and layered them up using old board. I also tore some sections to run across the background page.

I chose to use 2 sheets of “The little things”. From the first sheet I did a lots of fussing cutting of the flowers and leaves as you will see above. I used a second pieces to add some layers in my project behind the chipboards.

The layering of this project was the most time consuming part this time around. I also used chipboards to help add more layers in. Each of these pieces were coloured with relief paste and sanded back to give the worn shabby look of time gone by. I also added in some extra flowers from my stash and a little muslin and flower pearls to keep with the prettiness of the papers. I have a few closeup photos for you below.

   

Amongst all the distressed layers I have added in some charms, muslin and flower pearls to keep it simple and shabby. I also added in a little more of the relief paste around some of the paper layers and over this some random stamping using a script stamp.

Well that is all from me today. I hope you enjoyed my post and stay tuned for more Design Team gorgeousness very soon.

Happy Crafting

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.

Hello Maja Friends,

Today I am happy to share with you my layout that I’ve made recently with the brand new Miles Apart collection.

I found pictures taken during Summer 2019, and since 2020 is not the best year for us, I decided to look for the good memories from the last year.

I played with blue and pink tones, though my daughter doesn’t like pink and anything girly, and even made a short hair cut this year, I thought that I keep all my layouts for my memory, so it’s ok to make it soft and feminine.

I made a rectangle die cuts , some of them are from old collection Antligen, as well as some fussy cutting  and created many layers.

I cut out the title from the paper cut outs with the info about Maja Design papers, and I suppose it is a good idea that the paper name is a good title for any of your project, have you used them as I do?

Since the pictures were taken near the fountain so I ‘ve added some watercolor splashes.

 

Stay Positive for the upcoming winter days.
