Welcome Maja friends!

Today I want to share with you another possibilitie, what you can do with the beautiful papers from Maja Design.

It’s a one sheet minialbum, that means for the basic you only need one background paper in 12 x 12″.

I chose from the Vintage Summer basics collection ”1936”, both colours are very suitable to my theme

 blue, for the sea and brown, for a memoryin vintage style.

As addition some sheets from the Summertime collection.

I used some photo’s from our sheltie, a beautiful memory on last summer and really he is an aquaholic, even like me ūüôā


on the right side you can see a ATC frame and some mini wooden shapes from Calico Craft Parts, a beautiful addition

where I used white crackle paint from DecoArt for an altered effect

other products:

cutting dies – Memory Box, Kaisercraft

Distress ink Vintage photo – Ranger

maritim clear stamps from different companies

Thanks for your visit!

Hello sweet Maja fans.

Lenet here and I bring you this card.

 

Today is the official first day of the summer , and so I decided to use the summertime collection to create this card with.

I love making cards with an extra twist ,so made this what shall I call it dangle card?

When you open the card you find a dangle of roses , I cut out of a sheet of Smell the roses.

 

 

I used the two bikes because well ,we dutch are not only known for the mills , tulips and wooden shoes ,  but we are also known for our many bikes.

I love to ride my bike and use it daily for fun but also for running errands .

And saying that I’m going to hop on my bike to bring this card to the post office than¬† it can be sent to my friend¬† so she”ll how much you appreciate her.

thank you very much for visiting our blog and hope you get some inspiration by this card.

Hello sweet Maja fans, today it’s my turn again to give you some inspiration

I’m so in love with the Maja papers , I find it so heartbreaking to throw the left overs¬† away so I always save almost every snippet I have left .

These snippets are great for smaller project like cards.

This one I made with left overs from my last layout that I made using the summertime collection.

 

 

Like my layouts I use foamtape for my cards as well to build layers and dimension.

For the leaves I used dies from my favorite things and cut them out of the celery/sage paper from the shade of sofiero monochromes

And again I used the cut out roses from  the smell the roses paper, and tucked some folded flat prima flowers behind the big white flower from wild orchid crafts.

Thank you for watching and I hope I gave you some inspiration.

Sweet

Hello  dear Maja fans.

Today it’s my turn again to inspire you and this time I have a tutorial of how I made this lay out for you.

For this one I used the beautiful papers of the summertime collection.

 

For the background I used the backside of Flowers every where. I high-lighted the area where want my to make my composition with some gesso

While the gesso is drying  I cut out some roses out of the smell the roses sheet, those I will tuck behind the picture and papers later.

 

When the gesso is dry¬† I made splatters with¬† Lindy’s flat fabio”s sidewalk chalk and queen of hearts red.

Than I added some random stamping when the splatters were dry.  To see what  the stamp and what color ink I like and want to use,

I did some test stamping at the place that will be covered with the papers. This way I can have a better look at what feels right for me.

I decided to use Pink petunia from versaMagic.

After choosing the papers I want behind my picture, cutting them in the right size I distress the edges with mt paperdistresser from Making Memories

I have this one for I think 10 years used it a lot and really love it. I tried other distressers  when the were introduced  but always went back to using this one.

For sticking the papers on to the papers I use  foamtape because it gives your layout some demension.

I always stick it in the middle so you can tuck flowers or other embellies behind it later on.

Because i own a lot of supplies I never used I gave myself the challenge to try to use some oldies on every project I make from this layout on..

This time I took these Prima flowers. I crunched them to these flowers and  tucked them with the roses .

I love the the way the look now so I’m sure I will use this more often in the future.

   

After sticking the papers and picture on to the background , I embellished  it with roses from Prima, badges from cuts2luv , pearls from the dollarstore.

The leaves are made using  Monochromes shade of Sofiero РCelery/Sage with dies from My favorite things and the swirly ones I think from Marianne Design.. and l tucked the roses I cut out earlier between the layers of the papers.

The edge with the little hearts is made with a punch from Martha Stewart. the word Sweet is a chippy from dusty attic that I colored with black embossing powder.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that it inspired you .
