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.
The little things
The little things-bs
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.
Keep in touch
Keep in touch-bs
A few words
A few words-bs
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.
Hello Sweet Maja fans,
Lenet here and today I bring you this romantic card with lot’s of layers and fussy cuts tucked between them.
I never heard of fussy cuts until Amy called them like that. So those little things you cut out with a little scissor are fussy cuts. Love it.
For this card I used the Celebration 15×15 paperpad the fussy cuts are cut out of Engagement from the Vintage romance collection.
Here a close up of the fussy cuts
And the fussy cuts tucked between the layers to give it some depth.
I love to use layers on a card . I use foamtape between them to stick the layers together.
And a close up of the left uppercorner with the fuzzy cuts.
Thank you very much for visiting , Hope you like the card I made for you.
Stay Safe and see you next time.
Hello sweet Maja fans,
Lenet here and I bring you this layout.
Ooooh my shabby heart, I love this collection so much!
The miles apart collection that is . It’s the ultimate shabby chic collection for me now.
The soft colors the roses ..everything. Next to the Sofiero collection my favorite one.
I do love the strips at the bottom of every sheet of paper, it always ahs a nice quote on it that you can use on cards, mini albums, lay out, you name it.
I especially love the the one from the keep in touch sheet. I used it at the top corner on your left.
i cut out the flowers from the Thinking of you sheet..they are wonderful to use as a die cut.
Some pearly swirls from Prima Marketing to finish it off.
This is a chippie from Dusty Attic wich I colored with sugar floss lustre and sugar orchid lustre embossing powder from Blond Moments.
I hope you love this layout as much as I do.
Thank you for visiting , stay safe and hop to see you again soon.

Hello Maja sweet Maja Fans
Lenet here today. I hope you are all healthy and well.
I don’t know how things are going in your country but here things are getting back to normal , as normal as can be. Next month all cafe, restaurants, movietheaters, musea everything is going to be open again. Of course only for limited amount of people to enter.
Now without further ado , here is a card I made for you using the 6″x”6 paper pack of Sofiero. I love shabby chic and I think this collection is perfect for creating shabby chic projects.
I did some stitching around some of the pieces of paper, I think it always adds something extra.
And everything shabby chic needs besides pastel colors are lots of flowers and roses , pears and nice bows.
I hope you like the card I made for you .
Stay safe and healthy
