Hi everyone! I have a decorated paper bag to show you today. I have used red, gorgeous papers from Maja Design and the Summertime Collection. When I have planned to use the colour red, this is my favourite collection to use.

I have cut out different parts by using the Maja Papers.

I have also coloured some seambinding ribbons to match the papers. I have sprayed them with water mixed with Distress Ink, re-inkers (Aged Mahogany and Fired Brick).

The image is from Magnolia and the Get Well Collection. And I have added som Frantage and Liquid pearls around her.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I have added corrugated paper, a doily, lace and several layers of papers underneath the image.

Here is the list of papers used:

Thank you so much for visiting the blog today!

With love,

Love

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 – Celery/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 .

Perfect Moment

Goodmorning lovely Maja Fans,

It’s been lovely weather here in my country up to 25 degrees eventhough, all the leaves are falling from the trees and we have the prettiest colors of Autumn it is nice to not wear you jacket again in October. Sadly it was for just three days because today it’s raining again. For today I have a 12×12 layout using two pretty Maja Design collections “Summertime” & “Denim & Friends” and I am showcasing Camilla her twins {I can not get enough of using their cute pictures <3 }….These pictures are taken in Venice, a city I would love to visit someday.

I have also used some of the monochromes of Denim & Friends {the aqua sheet}….I treated my chipboard with different mediums such as wax, gesso, rust paste, ink & spray. I stamped on my background with different clear stamps by 49 and Market also the flowers are by the same company.
