Treasure these memories

Hi my friends and welcome to Maja Design. These papers truly lend themselves to layering  … For example : at the top of my layout I have created a mini collage by using strips of paper and diecuts. I began with my foundation of a base strip,  2 inches wide, which I have added a border punched strip  layered over the top and then finished off with an even  thinner strip. These are all machine stitched together with black cotton. I added a mixture of blooms in similar hues and I chose to cut some Frojdefull jul  with diecuts to create even more dimension to my mini collage strip .  I have such a magical time creating with these amazing papers. This layout is special to me as I have used a photo of my ‘darling grandie’ . Ella J.

   I really love to create pages where ‘you’, the viewer wants to touch, feel and run your fingers over the layers and look closely, spying something different each time you glance at my work. I love to create interest and intrigue while also giving dimension to my work. Stamping is something I really love. Sometimes a stamp fills a space perfectly . So quick and easy, making the whole layout blend together gloriously. 

Tucked amongst the Green Tara  blooms, I have added some inked chipboard. A tiny frame and a funky Dandelion bloom. I sliced the frame in half and I poked one half amongst the blooms and the other half is added to the diecut cluster on the right side of the mounted photo. I combined some Christmas papers with the Vintage Summer Basics.


Papers used: Girlanger  – bs, Julkappar – bs , Vintage summer basics 1899 and  1891. I wanted to demonstrate just how easily these papers blend and work together and create the perfect background to showcase your treasured memories and photos. Other materials used : Prima stamps, Tim Holtz stamps, Vintage brads, Sizzix and Tim Holtz diecuts, 2crafty chipboard,Prima and Green Tara blooms

I will see you all again next week. Enjoy your weekend and have fun creating, bye for now and big hugz from Heather xHeather-sign
