Christmas Memories to Cherish Layout ***Maja Design*** + Playing at Creative Embellishments, More Than Words & Lindy's Stamp Gang!!

Hi lovely friends, 

Today I'd like to show you a layout that I created for my DT work at Maja Design. For this layout I combined two collections "Miles Apart"& "I Wish" I really like how well all collections of Maja Design go together...now pink/cherise/peachy & brown always look awesome don't you think?? I off course used a picture of Abbey the first time next to a Christmas tree a nice memory for her.

Christmas Memories to Cherish:With this layout I will be entering three challenges could not resist either one of them. I made a layout with lots of layers which I really like to do it gives your work more demension. The brown sheet of the I Wish collection I used for my base underneath that sheet I used the 'a few words' sheet of the Miles Apart collection. On the background I used the distressed script stamp by Creative Embellishments. 

Then I distressed like a crazy woman ohhhh did I went nuts sometimes you need it to get your shit together. Then I placed the slightly smaller sheet on top of my background with underneath the same sheet as I did behind the brown one. 

Then I placed the flowers around like I wanted them just like I did with the picture....you see some handmade leaves too in my flower clusters those are made with Cheery Lynn Designs dies and sprayed with sprays gold & green. The I added some metal stars & some chipboard Gears by Creative Embellishments.

Maja Design Paper used: 
Miles Apart: a few words & keep in touch and I Wish: those memories will last.
As I told you earlier I will be entering three challenges with this layout the first one is to be inspired by this beautiful mood board that's why I used the gears and the script stamp..

For the second: To be inspired by the word Childhood & to add gold on this layout I used a picture of our sweet Abbey next to her first Christmas three I added gold stars and some golden swirls in my flower clusters.

For the third: I was inspired by all the pretty shimmer and pink in this moodboard...I have used rose gold wax and some other waxes on my chipboard pieces. Also I used shiny spray with some mika powders 

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today have a wonderful New Years and stay safe

The Unforgetable Moments of Childhood Magic Layout for ***Maja Design*** + Playing at More Than Words & 13 Arts!!

 Goodmorning my amazing followers,

Today I'd like to share another layout I made for my Maja Design DT work I am so happy that you find the time to visit my blog today, here in The Netherlands they just decided to have a hard lockdown due covid-19, I personally think that it's way to late but who am I right? Luckily in my line of work {optician} we can still be open and help the people who need to see but for my husband it's a whole other story but he can still go to work but we don't know for how long. Well enough of the covid-19.....today I'd like to show you another layout that I made with two gorgeous collections "Celebration"& "Nyhavn"

The Unforgetable Moments of Childhood Magic: 
This was a fun and easy page to make also because I don't have many pictures with snow in it....only when Kevin was a cute little boy. For the bottom part of my layout I used the Nyhavn sheet called sitting at the dock which is one of my all time favorites and for the upper part I used the ephemera sheet of Celebration. At that first sheet I used a awesome winter background stamp by studio light with some stazon jet black ink I stamped randomly, then for the upper part I used a stencil by the dusty attic of stars.

The frame around the picture is also by the dusty attic as is the word childhood. With this layout I will be entering two challenges one is a moodboard of winter at the 13 Arts blog and the other one is of childhood & to add some gold at More Than Words. The leaves you see on my layout are dies by cheery lynn designs which I cut out from the Maja Designs monochromes and then treated with lindy's stamp gang sprays.

I added different golden elements on my layout as glitter glass, gold sprays & finnabair wax on the art pebbles as the finishing touch I added some true snow by arleene's and some butterflies of the coffee in the arbour collection. I also added some flatbackpearls on the frame.

Maja Design papers used: Celebration Ephemera bs, Nyhavn sitting at the dock bs, Mono White Sand bs of the sofiero & Coffee in the Arbour butterflies are free.

As I told you earlier in my post I will be entering two challenges one at More Than Words with the word "Childhood" and to add some gold....how did this moodboard inspire me, well that's easy when I was a child there was snow almost every winter! My brothers and I where always playing ouside throwing snow at each other and playing & skating on the ice....and when Kevin was little we also played in the snow with him and that where fun times reminding me of my own childhood! That's why I used this picture. 
and the second one is at the 13 Arts blog challenge #97 and for you work you needed to use at least one 13 Arts product and I used the words "Unforgetable", "Moments" & Magic from the Chipboard Winter Tales words which I had in my stash for a while now and I finally got to use it yeah....and isn't this moodboard amazing???
Thank you so much for being here with me today I hope you like my work have a wonderful day .......stay safe & healthy......

Cherish our Little Moments for ***Maja Design*** & Playing along with The Dusty Attic November moodboard!

 Goodmorning lovely bloggers,

Today I would like to share another layout with you all, but first I want to tell you that I am hosting a give away you could win one off three collections by Maja Design ==> Amy´s Pretty Papers <== now to my layout! For this one I used my new favorite collection "Miles Apart" I just can't believe how pretty this collection is can you? I totally went crazy on the fussy cutting part. For this layout I wanted to create a romantic scenery with lace and lots of layers I was totally inspired by the Dusty Attic moodboard of November while creating this layout. The picture is truly my most adorable {and favorite} picture I have of my handsome boy & little princess.

Cherish our little Moments:First I cut out the middel part of the thinking of you sheet, 2 centimeters to be exact around the edges. Then I distressed both pieces as much as I could with a tool then with my fingers to make the papers kind of curly at some places. Then I moved my chipboard pieces around and around {I think that took me two whole hours "Oh Boy"} until I liked where I put them.

Then I took the chipboard away after taking a picture first...then you see I added lace in the upper left corner and in the lower right corner and that's how the papers stay on it's place {didn't use any glue here} after that I used some stamps, a stencil, modeling crackle paste & and a bunch of Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays on the background sheet.

I also used the stencil with some of that same paste to alter the frame around the picture {I had never done that before} but it turned out great at least that's what I think ;-) hehe Then I treated the rest of the chipboards with white embossing powder by Lindy's Stamp Gang and later I added some waxes by Finnabair on them too...to finish of my layout I added some prills & sequins and of course some gorgeous butterflies <3

Maja Design papers used: Close at Heart, Thinking of You, Thinking of you-bs, A Few Words-bs and Ephemera, Coffee in the Arbour papers used: Butterflies are free.

With this layout I entered the Dusty Attic November moodboard and you know what I won....I am so excited yeahhhhh won me some Dusty Attic goodies this was the moodboard:
