Hi again! I hope you sneaked into my scrap space here yesterday… This is how the project turned out. It is a layout for my daughter. The papers are from the lovely Coffee in the Arbour collection.
The photo mat is made in two different colours using two different Sizzix dies.
And as the base for the photo and the flower arrangement I used a gorgeous piece of lace from Tresors de Luxe.
You know I cannot scrap without fabulous flowers – this is a bunch from Prima Marketing.
I have used papers from the Coffee in the Arbour collection and one of them is peeking out from behind.
The layout from another angle.
Product list: Maja Design Coffee in the Arbour collection (Homemade Lemoncurd, Raspberries, Raspberry Jam Cookies), lace (Tresors de Luxe), flowers (Prima), metal pieces (Prima), dies (Sizzix), seam binding
I hope you enjoyed the layout.
Hi everyone! Camilla here. Today it is my turn to show you where I create my scrapbooking projects.
As you can see I only have half a room as my scrap space so I have to keep it organized. Thankfully I live in Sweden, the homeland of IKEA. LOL
Here is the desk I normally use when I scrapbook. Sometimes I move into the kitchen or the living room though, especially if I scrap for a whole day and want to watch television at the same time.
In this area I have all my dies. The Silhouette is sadly very rarely used.
And on these shelves I have my mists.
I have some of my papers standing in the book shelf. The older papers I don’t use anymore I have put away into a closet.
Above the desk I have shelves with boxes. The boxes contains older flowers, which I have sorted by colours.
And my punches and border punches are in plastic containers like these.
As you might have noticed I like plastic containers since I can easily see what’s inside. Here I have newer Prima flowers still in their packages and also my laces from Tresors de Luxe and chipboards from Blue Fern Studios.
This drawer is also from IKEA and contains different stuff. On my desk I have these containers with different mixed media products and stamps I often use.
Finally… Here’s what my desk looked like the other night when I sat down to work on a Maja Design project. You will see the result if you head on over here tomorrow morning…
Hi! I cannot believe it is July already. For my project for today I chose summerly colours. The papers are from the new Coffee in the Arbour collection.
The flowers are in blue and yellow to suit the lovely Maja Design papers.
The laces are from Tresors de Luxe and are in ivory.
I have torn a bit in the papers to add some lace peeking out from underneath.

Hi! This will be my first layout using the NEW Coffee in the Arbour collection. It’s another stunning collection – fabulous colours and patterns. And for my first layout I chose the Rose Garden paper and the striped Raspberry Cake paper. They are gorgeous!
I added some stamping and texture paste on each side of the layout.
The cluster is layered with flowers, cheese cloth and leaves.
A bow made of seam binding adds some texture and softness.
And here I added some other embellishments – a resin angel, two paper clips and tags.
To make the striped paper peek from behind I ripped the rose paper and then added some lace.

Hi! Camilla here with a card this Sunday. I have used the Vintage Summer Basics collection together with some flowers and other embellishments.
Here you can see the layering. I started with two different papers and also added some lace between them.
Then I added some flowers and a bird nest. The cheese cloth adds more layers too.
And the title sign is beautiful and vintagy. The last thing I did was to splatter some Prima Bloom Spray on the card.

Good morning! I cannot believe how time flies. I was looking at old photos and found a precious one from several years back. The little lady who celebrated her first birthday just recently celebrated her sixth. *sigh*
Anyway, the layout is made with the gorgeous Vintage Summer Basics collection – a true favourite of mine.
As you can see I have torn the sides of the papers and also curled the tearing a bit.
Here is a close-up of my flower arrangement. I tried to use the colours in the photo.
Old book pages are fabulous to use as a kind of photo mat. I have also added a doily frame underneath.Products used: Maja Design papers: Vintage Summer Basics; 1921 and Minnen/Memories. Other: flowers, vines, old book pages, pearl swirls, alpha stickers, doily frame, gesso
Hi! It is Sunday and here’s a new Maja Design project from me. I have used the fab Vintage Summer Basics collection to create a layout about a vacation a few years back.
As you can see I have used some different masks, mists and texture paste to create the background.
And to create more layers I layered flowers and cheese cloth.
Some more embellishments to go with the flowers – some metal and some pearls. I also toned down the colours of the flowers a bit using some gesso.
Underneath the photos I have used some old book pages and also brick wall chipboards from Blue Fern Studios.
Another picture of the background.
Material used: Maja Design papers: Vintage Summer Basics (1899, 1903), Blue Fern Studios chipboards, gesso, masks, mists, texture paste, flowers, metal sign, pearl swirls, alpha stickers, old book pages, cheese cloth
Good morning! I want to share a bright layout with you. I found an old picture of my kids I just had to scrap. I have used the Vintage Summer Basics collection for my layout.
The chipboards from Blue Fern Studios are just dabbed with white gesso.
And here are some lovely blooms that really brightens up the page.
The background is created by using masks, misting, stamping etc.
More blooms… It seems I can not get enough of them. LOL
And here you see a close up of the paper tearing.

Good morning! I hope you are well. I have been working on a new project to share with you. I think you agree when I say the Vintage Spring Basics collection is beyond beautiful. I have been using it to create this layout.
A close up of the flowers I have been using. It is a selection of different spring colours.
I tucked in a small piece of chipboard painted in white.
I added some texture paste to a mask to create this pattern.
A little metal trinklet is the perfect finish touch.
