Hello and welcome Maja Design friends. Tina Ollett with you today to share a moodboard inspired creation. As you may already be aware,  Maja Design’s moodboard challenge is now up. Here is a glimpse for those who have not as yet seen it. Absolutely stunning!! A big thankyou to Marie Janson for all of her creativity putting these together every month.

And this is my take on the gorgeous moodboard using the new release collection of Holiday in the Alps.

I have titled this layout “Merry Christmas”. I hunted for a photo fit for this project for a long time. I had to dig very deep and then come across this. I cannot ever remember seeing this photo amongst my pics but there it was. A photo of all 3 of my beautiful children caught in the moment of opening gifts on Christmas morning. So many beautiful memories are bought about by this photo. Isn’t it a beautiful thing that as scrapbookers we can relive the moment when creating.

Anyway more about the project. I have as previously mentioned used the new release designed by the very talented Marie Janson…. “Holiday in the Alps”. She has created an absolutely amazing collection. I am not huge on Christmas but this collection just rocked my world. I can see myself doing lots more in the coming weeks. Below are the papers I have used.

I used the striped paper “Snowmen” as my background pieces and tore the blue sheet Snowflakes to sit through the middle of the project and the remaining pieces were made as photo matting for my two photos. I also decided a little bit later to add in some brown. So I added in the patterned paper “A New Year”.

On my background I added in some texture paste through Dusty Attic’s Starry Night stencil and then sprinkled over Sparkling Dust from Dress My Craft.

I have framed my photos using some gorgeous ornate frame chipboards from Dusty Attic. These were dressed in acrylic paints and inks. I also added in a couple of the Swirly frames and cut them into several pieces. They were dressed in Liquid Pearls and sprinkled over with Sparkling Dust.

I found some gorgeous silver branches whilst out shopping this week which fit perfectly for this project. I didn’t even have to colour them. Just cut and adhered.

I have also added in some gorgeous little pinecones. These were spritzed in an irridescent clear spray and dusted with Sparkling Dust.

So that is it. A little bit of Christmas inspiration using this month gorgeous moodboard. I hope you find time to join us in the challenge. Thankyou so much for popping by here today and taking the time to look. We appreciate it.

Until next time take care and happy scrapping.

Hi there Maja Design friends. Tina with you today to share a project created with the newest of collections being the Denim and Girls. This collection is just gorgeous and a perfect match I think for my photo today. This project I have titled “Every story tells a story”.

My background was created with layers of the Denim and Girls patterned papers.

I firstly set out to complete my background for my layout to sit upon. I cut a circle from the centre of Summer Outfit and used the remaining outer framework as my base. I then layered a section of the b side of Lace over this. I did a little tearing of my paper and distressed it very heavily. I then adhered down the circle that I distressed also and added a couple of section of Lovely then my photo which was distressed also.

Once my background was completed I then added a piece of the bs of Roses to the back of a Dusty Attic Vintage Chipboard Frame. I then coloured my frame with Inka Gold and some embossing Shabby Chic colours from my stash. This was adhered to the left side of my photo ensuring that I didn’t cover too much of the photo.

I added in lots of different pieces of laces from my stash. I love to use laces to highlight areas of my projects and also to soften the layout if it needs it. I further embellished my layout using more chipboards and also a good selection of Navy and Blush Pink 49andMarket flowers.

The flowers and the chipboards were all used to help with the layering of my layout.

And from another view of my layout. Here you can see the gorgeous papers holding all these goodies. I only altered the papers a little using some Distress Ink and a postal stamp to add a little more blue to my background. Well that is all I have for you today. I do hope you have enjoyed my project piece.

Until next time take care and happy crafting.

Hello, our blog fans. Today I would like to present cards created with the Denim&Girls Collection. I really enjoyed working with the previous collection. Thanks to this one, you are able to create pastel and delicate cards.

You dont need to use many add-ons. I made a backgroud with the stencil and some paste, added chipboards from Scrapiniec and  paper flowers. I combine the Denim&Friends Collection and some of the die-cut elements from Sofiero. It fits perfectly! Hope you will like my project. Hugs, Paulina

Hydrangea love.

Hello sweet Maja fans Lenet here and today I bring you this Layout with lots of hydrangea.

I really love hydrangea, I have a big pink one in my backyard and planted a white one as well, hope it will grow very big too.

In my frontyard I have a white one with big balls of tiny white flowers.

I own a lot of hydrangea flowers from prima marketing and wanted to really start using them so I decided to make this lay out filled with hydrangea.

I also wanted to use some real nature thing in it so I went out to my garden and gathered some old little branches and plants that i had put aside for the birds to use building their nests, sorry birdies but I will refill soon. It’s fun to use natural things  like this on your layout so I might go use it more often.

I made some tears on the edges of the toplayer, distressed them so you can see the paper underneath and made stitches by hand on each side of it.

I also tucked some pink dried baby’s breath between the flowers, I love this delicate little flower .

I always keep and dry them when I get those in a bouquet

For this layout I used the  vintage summer basics collection.

Thank you for visiting ,I hope you like my layout this time and I hope I gave you some inspiration.

Make shure to come back to take a look at the work the other Maja Girls made for you.
