Goodmorning Maja Fans,
Autumn is upon us again and here where I live the weather is showing us all the beauty of it! Falling leaves and changing colors but also my least favorite part, the heavy wind and the rainy days. Today is a day like that and I’d love to stay in bed under the warm covers….but I have to go to work in a while! This time I’d like to share a Autumn card with you using all dies and my beautiful Maja Papers. For this card I used different collections but mostly “Walking in the Forest”! All the dies I used where cut out a couple of weeks back but I never used them. I am hooked on leaf dies because you can use them for every occasion and this time it’s a Autumn card. It was really hard to take a picture because it is very windy and I take all my pictures outside….and my card almost flew away…..glad it didn’t though.
This card was made out of leftovers it’s so much fun to sometimes dig into your stash and see what you can make with it. I had leftover papers from both of my paper design teams and every once in a while my neighbor gets all my cut out papers to make Christmas cards and all sorts of other cards and projects. Because I am fortuned enough to be on these amazing paper companies that I’d like to share some of that fortune 😉
Maja Design papers used: Walking in the Forest: colours of fall, fresh air, die cut sheet, die cut letters and jeans. Vintage Baby: Die cuts bs for the flower. Monochromes shades of denim: Mono Denim Light blue & Vintage Autumn Basics: no.VII & no. VII bs.
Thank you so much for your visit today I sure hope I have inspired you to play with your amazing products you have in you stash or even order new products I have used here.
Have a wonderful week!
Hello and a huge welcome to you! Today I am here to share my next project which I created using Maja’s gorgeous Vintage Spring Basics combined with Coffee in the Arbour. If you keep scrolling I will share a few close-ups and more details of how I used these beautiful papers.
I love yellows…….. and browns just seems to be the thing I go to next! So for this creation I came across this photo of my gorgeous youngest daughter and our furbaby Rafael some time ago in the back yard at home. It was one of those lucky shots that it was fortunate that they were looking my way at the correct time. I had printed this photo off a few times and I never liked the way this came out in the sepia tone so I had stashed it away. But for these project the colours fit beautifully, wouldn’t you agree?
With papers tearing seems to be a natural progession. My first sheet (background sheet) was Coffee in the Arbour’s Lemoncurd. The soft tones to this paper drew me to it instantly. I did a little stenciling on it but mainly left it’s beauty remain. I then cut the frame from the Vintage Spring Basics 1st of March Sheet. Did some distressing and adhered it to the background piece. With the remainder of the 1st of March I did some tearing and adhered the torn middle section to the page. I love the images of the calender and other elements that are this sheet. They are just gorgeous and really lend itself to my project!
I also used the back of 1st of March to help the photo pop a little. Again tearing papers to fit the matting of my photo. The other torn pieces were layered amoungst the chipboards and flowers and clocks that I cut from from the Vintage Autumn Basics No.XVI. These were cut carefully and sanded and distressed to give that worn feeling.
I used some Dusty Attic chipboards inked with Distress Inks and also some paper moulds that I made a few weeks back along with a charm that I picked up in my travels to Taiwan a few months back. I love the simplicity of it. When everything was layered I then dry brushed my elements to soften the page and then added in a few microbeads with some 3D Gel.

Well that is all from me today. I so hope you have enjoyed my project today. I will see you back here in a couple of weeks! Until then take care and happy scrapping. xo
Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Denim and Friends collection. I chose a photo I created.
I primed the background with clear gesso. When dry I added a design with a stencil and black gesso. Then I sprayed two shades of inks through a second stencil. Then I added some splatters with two Magicals.
While the background was drying, I sprayed the chipboard with the same inks.I dried them before applying some Platinum Crackle Paste.
I added a last design to the background with a third stencil and Platinum Crackle Paste. I colored some flowers as well as some leavesI’ve die-cut in a watercolor paper.
When happy with the result, I glued all the embellishments: chipboards, flowers, and leaves with a 3D gel.
To finish the layout I added some mica flakes and micro beads.

Today I am up on this lovely blog using my precious Maja Design papers. In my last post I added some questions and I will give you those answers in my August 11th post, the same as I give you my tutorial that day. Sorry for that but I had to deal with some serious personal issues so I have not been scrapbooking as much as I wanted to. Today we will be leaving for our well deserved vacation trip for the next seven day we will be enjoying each others company at a camping ground in the south of our little country we are very excited as you can imagine…, for this post I made a 8×8 layout using only Maja Design papers, dies and a flair.
That sweet picture I got from pinterest oh boy how I love that site…here I used several Maja Design collection such as Vintage Autumn Basics, Vintage Baby, I Wish and Vintage Summer Basics. The centers of my big flowers are made with foamballs that I glued on and dipped in mini prills such a lovely effect that has.
On the background I added some spray’s, stamp and paste. But I also stamped the word sweet on the picture I really do love Gabi her word stamps. What I do when making a layout with just paper and dies….firstly I will cut all the dies that I want to use in different colors then I will make the flowers and their centers and put those together.
Then I it is really easy to make it into one whole piece that you like. At the moment I am totally hooked on the amazing flairs by Cuts2luv that I will use it on almost every single project I make. I wetted my papers to disstress is a little more at the edges I also inked the edges first before I did that.
