These envelopes are really great on their own but you can also stick them on a layout, a card or a off the page project if you'd like. They a are so really great for giving with a bouquet of flowers to people who are close to you or just someone you know.....well they are really versatile as you will see.

Gift Envelopes: 
For my allotment I got this three cuties and I used all different leftover papers by Maja Design! These are made with the"Vintage Romance" & "Enjoying Outdoors" collections.
Oh how I love them and even so much I am going to buy some of the others too...and if you like them you should too it's not going to be a disappointment for sure. For these card I used nothing other then these lovely dies because as you see you don't have to at all.....

Beautiful Layout for ***The Dusty Attic***

Goodmorning everyone, 
I am up on the blog today with a layout I made not using Maja Design papers "yep" I can make something with other papers too lol....for this layout I used several 7 Dots Studio collections. This time I also used some pretty Prima Marketing flowers I think I am a addict when it comes to flowers. I treated the chipboard pieces I used all differently some with just acrylic paint and others I embossed.  

This paper exists out of wood grain which I really love. For this layout I cut the wood grain pattern and distressed it heavily after that I cut out some more strips of that same papers which I also distressed and added them on my layout on three places. Then I splattered three different sprays on the paper and I also added the heart stencil {my favorite} with the Dusty Attic texture paste.

As you can see here I painted the frame that's around my picture with some acrylic pink paint by The Dusty Attic. Later I added some rust paste plus white crackle paste and I finished it off with a metal gem. The word "Beautiful" was embossed with two colors Lindy's embossing powder and the small chains I gessod and spray painted. 

Oh how I enjoy playing with chipboard so much I can't imagine to not use it on my layouts it just feels not finished when I don't use it. This layout was really a happy layout to create and I will be creating more very soon.
