Goodmorning lovely Maja Fans,

Today I am showing you a beach layout using a picture of myself en the always pretty “Vintage Summer Basics” collection. Also we are promoting “PETALOO” flowers this month from the 12th – 24th and on this layout you will see a bunch of them. You see the promotion doesn’t start in couple of day’s but I wanted to give you a little taste on how pretty they are.

This picture was taken back in 2010 and I never used it on a layout before…all the chipboard pieces are by The Dusty Attic and where treated with white gesso and Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays but also I used some different sizes art stones and some stamps and stencils. The stamp I used is a new one from 49 and Market designed by own very own Pascale….awesome job girl love it!

Hi Everyone,

Its Keren Here with a new layout.

I’ve always loved the brick pattern from the Vintage Summer Basics and so I knew I had to incorporate it into a layout during my DT term.

Below is a photo of my husband and daughter and i thought it was so cute.

I framed the photo by die cutting with a frame out of the background paper. The brick paper hid the area where I had cut from.

I used to doodle on my notebooks and on anything I could get my hands on. ‚Äč Fourteen years ago I discovered scrapbooking and fell in love with it. One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. Scrapbooking opened a creative door to something that I had longtime forgotten I'd loved. It gave me peace of heart and mind. visit my blog for more inspiration: https://kerentamir.blogspot.ca

Welcome back and hello!
I hope this post finds you happy and well. Today I have for you a layout inspired by a gorgeous photo of my eldest daughter. This I have titled

“Dream”…….

I have used a combination of Maja Designs gorgeously stunning Vintage Summer and Vintage Spring Basics collection to create my layered background of torn and distressed papers.
¬† I can’t tell you how often I have wanted to use this piece of chipboard……but finally it happened for the perfect project. I think it just fit wonderfully here. You can see these pieces above cut into 2’s and tucked amoungst my gorgeous Maja paper layers. Yay I was so happy when this worked!
I love this Title chipboard. They are totally gorgeous. This one was dressed in some Sugar Plum acrylic paint and then I toned it down a little to compliment my page with some white gesso and of course some Dress My Craft sparkling dust……..
I have also used a Swirly Frame chipboard. It was cut into two and used to frame these beautiful photo’s of my daughter Ashlea. We held a Mad Hatters Tea Party a little while back and she dressed as the Queen and looked just stunning. These photos of course were changed to a Sepia tone to help fit my layout and the moodboard.
Here you can see my Fleur de Lis coloured with inks and paints. Atop of it I sat the small Decorative #1 frame and then on top of that a Mini Clock Face. The mini clockfaces are the perfect fit for this frame!!
Okay and I love me a little or quite a lot however you look at it, of the Dress My Craft
Princess Mix Sequins. I also gave my layout a good sprinkling of ¬†Dress My Craft’s Sparkling Dust just to make it shine that little bit more.
I also added in some florals but I kept it quite minimal for me that is. Above you can see the 49andMarket Floral Mixology flowers that I used. These are the Pina Colada coloured florals that I changed up by wiping over with a little Dusty Sugar Plum acrylic paint.
I have also tucked in a little lace and muslin to keep the layout as soft as possible.
And lastly these gorgeous Heart Arrows. I have dressed both the large and the small chippies in some Star Dust Stickles to really make them pop. I then added them into my clusters of flowers.
 Well that is all from me today. I hope you have a beautiful week and find some time for yourself !
Big hugs …..

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m u Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the Vintage Summer Basics collection. I chose a photo taken during my trip to Prague of the Memorial to the Victims of Communism. The memorial is the work of Czech sculptor Olbram Zoubek. It’s a truly magnificent memorial. A sad one, though.

Memorial by Pascale B.

First, I primed the background with clear gesso. I mixed together some copper crackle paste with the brown Rust effect paste. I used the mix with a stencil to add a design and I let dry. I didn’t expect the crackle to appear as I mixed the crackle

Hello our blog fans. Today I would like to show you gift set. It is a card with the notebook in a vintage style. I love to create this time of projects :) Take a look, please :Vintage gift set

I started to created this project by finding¬†the matching papers. Next step was to collect¬†all add-ons, chipboard and laces. With the composition was easy – it is always in my head. I took a while before I found my own style … I can create cards in a different styles as well but with the vintage it is really fast. I know what I like !

Vintage Gift SetUsually I’m adding chipboards without colouring. This time I decided to add two colours. It made sense and I really like the final effect. Will do it more often – definitely.

Vintage gift setWhite gesso – added on the roses and the small details showed the texture and gave a pinch of a shabby chic style as well.

Vintage Gift SetVintage Gift SetTiny notebook – perfect to have it on your office desk. I used to have one and write down my inspiration, dreams etc…

Vintage Gift SetVintage Gift SetHope you like my project. If you have any question – do not hesitate to ask. See you soon :) Hugs, Paulina
