Goodmorning lovely Maja Design friends,

Welcome to the blog, today I will show you a layout with the gorgeous new collection called “Everyday Life” and ohhhh my words it’s so freaking gorgeous. It has different color pallettes and some amazing cut out sheets to work with, for today’s layout I went for the yellow,cream and black/brown shades. I did a lot of distressing on my borders and what I totally love about this collection it has such lovely phrases randomly placed of the paper sheets.

Delight in Every Moment

I have used three layers here for my layout and behind the picture two layers, I used a gorgeous stencil by Celebr8 on my background. I also did a lot of fussy cutting on my layout like the sunflowers en butterflies. Firstly I coated the corner pieces, phrase and aztec feather with a thin layer of white gesso, then I used some gold embossing powder on the corners and white embossing powder on the phrase & feather after that I added some waxes in different shades to create more depth.

I off course used a picture of our lovely Abbey that I took last year her sitting in the grass with flowers in her hand. The beautiful chipboard border is treated with some gold shimmer spray and some waxes. On the background paper I used a new stencil and I finished my layout of by adding some “say it in crystals” & some white spray.

Maja Design papers used: Everyday Life 6×6 paper pad

Thank you so much for your visit today. And I sure hope that I have inspired you to take out your lovely Maja Design papers and create and have fun while doing so. Have a blessed & sunny weekend!

Goodmorning lovely Maja Designs fans,

I am so sorry for my absence lately, life is just so extremely busy. Abbey is growing up so fast and Kevin just turned seventeen last month. I am still busy creating and loving everything about it but making blog posts takes a lot of time which is precious to me. So I will try to keep up with them from now on, hopefully all goes well with you all and you are not to dissapointed in me.

Loving These Moments With You: 

I wrinkled my papers to give it more depth & demension.
I used five different sheets from the “Bohemian Harmony”collection and layered them. Then I added some stamps & a stencil by Finnabair. For this layout I used several gorgeous chippies from 2Crafty Chipboard {my new dt which I am so excited about} I all used white gesso on them. The word “shine” I just left white, and the frame had some leafy protrusions on it that I cut off and tucked in my flower clusters {and left them white also}.
I used two frames on this layout {I have a weakness for them}
The 6″Fine Heart Leaf Frame I painted in two colors to match my papers then I added a piece of paper behind it so I could add the phrase. The frame round my picture was treated with waxes {ochre & rusty brown} I also cut out a couple of flower clusters from different sheets and added them in my flower clusters & such.
On the pieces that I painted green I also added some shimmer spray to make it more blend into my layout.
I used a picture of our darling daughter Abbey last fall then I cut her out of a second picture I printed and layered it on top of the other one. For this layout I used  jute cord and cheese cloth behind my flowers and also visible on my layout.
Maja Design papers used:
Bohemian Harmony collection, Rustic flowers, Enjoy today, Feel alive, Be humble and Be honest-bs.

Thank you so much for your visit today. And I sure hope that I have inspired you to take out your lovely Maja Design papers and create and have fun while doing so. Have a blessed & sunny weekend!

Goodmorning & happy Friday Maja Fans,

Today I have a layout to share with you all in honor of being a mom. In life we all want our kids to grow up and be amazing young people and trust in what they can achieve…..Our boy is a charming 12 year old kiddo and I love him to the moon and back. Yesterday was a disaster day of creating that I tore a whole layout apart and threw it away! Am I the only one? Or are there more of you that have that sometimes. A couple of day’s ago I also deleted all my inbox messages from my hotmail too….so I think I am having a bad week lol. Hopefully all will get better soon so I don’t feel like I do now which is rushed…

I used the pretty Nyhavn sheet as my background and added two other colors to make the picture pop of my layout. It’s totally a different style then what I was creating before I trew it away….because that was all pink and girly. I really love to create with pink but this time it didn’t work at all. I used some stencils on my background with some black paste this time.

All the chipboard peices are treated with ink, spray’s, acrylic paint and embossing powder and they are all by Dusty Attic. I also added a flair too I am totally hooked on those at the moment.

The flowers I used are from three different companies which are 49 and Market, Petaloo and Prima. I love making flower clusters like these. They add so much to your page at least that is what I think do you agree with me??
