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.

Thank you for visiting the blog today and I would like to wish you all a wonderful weekend, vacation time and so much more. Hopefully I will see to back on my next post 😉
Hello and welcome back to the home of Maja Designs. Tina Ollett back with you today to share my first layout using the gorgeous new collection of “Denim and Friends”.
This project has been titled
“You are Awesome”……
Opening my box of goodies from the lovely ladies at Maja Designs was a definite hightlight of my week. My squeals of pure joy and excitement brought a number of my family members walking down to the art room to find out exactly what was going on.
Doing pretty layouts with copious amounts of flowers and embellishments is my go to thing for most projects, but today because this is mainly a masculine paper collection, I have opted to use a photo of my son who is quite happy not to be the centre of attention ever especially in my scrapbooking, but today it is! I captured this photo of him a number of years ago whilst we were on holidays at the Great Barrier Reef. We were on our way out to the reef on a very windy day and he was so very excited to be going snorkeling. The photo says it all.
I decided to keep this layout very simple with layering of all this fabulous collection. Of course I love to use woodgrain patterns to custom make the design for my chipboards and photo to sit. I used 2 sheets of Wood to create this using the first for the background page.
I have also added in the bs of Leather ( I also love polkadots) as a square frame to sit all of the cut wood to sit upon. And over this I have cut sections of Stonewashed to lay over this. My photo is also matted with Stonewashed.
I have also used sheets of papers from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection, cutting some of the hot air balloons for embellishments to add to my project.
I have also used lots of yummy Dusty Attic chipboards to emphasise my photo. These were inked and painted and layered amongst the layers of papers to allow more dimension to my layout.
Well that is all from me today. I hope you enjoyed your visit. Remember to return tomorrow for another Design Team creation. Until then take care and happy crafting. xxx
Hello my dear friends!!!
It’s Mary here with you today and I want to share with you my latest layout feauturing the ”Vintage Autumn Basics” collections.
A layout in blue tones that was inspired by the beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.
I used for my background the ”No XXI” paper and I matted my photo with the ”No XXI” and the ”No XX”.
I gave my background a coat of white gesso and when it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I colored my page using Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays ”Afternoon Delight Denim” and ”Silent Night Silver”.
I heat embossed the ”Flourish 3” and the ”Corner Gemma’s” chipboard with ”Silver Moon Orchid” Lindy’s embossing powder. All the chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers and embellishments are Prima Marketing.
To finish my page, I added some art stoned with gel medium and made some splatters with white ink.
That’s all for today, my friends!
Thank you for stopping by!
