Morning Maja friends! It’s Andrea here with you today starting off with some big flowers, big bows and lots of Maja paper goodness! Here’s a card I made using the Walking in the Forest collection: Accessories on this little beauty consist of Verve stamps, a silk bow, twine, crystal stamens, Dark Chocolate liquid pearls, vintage alace, and lots of distressing. I also inked up some gauze and placed it behind the big bow. I was toying with making a Christmas card, but I think I’m going to wait a bit and enjoy this beautiful Autumn weather! Have a great day and thanks for spending part of it with me!
I am a pure autumn girl. I love when the darkness falls, there’s a chill in the wind and the leaves are changing colour. There’s nothing better then crawl up in the sofa in front of the fireplace with some hot chocolate.
I have used the wonderful Walking In The Forest collection for this photo. I remember I ran in the woods while Marie was drawing it and I texted her “rowanberries. We need rowanberries.” She answered “I already have ” Then I knew that this collection was going to be fantastic.
I love this branch that goes so well with the Walking In The Forest collection. The resins are perfect for it as well. The butterfly stripe is from one of the sheets in the collection.
Wishing you a wonderful Sunday…
Welcome to the blog today, Maja Fans
It’s been a while since I shared a layout here, so today I’m catching up I don’t particularly like autumn as there seem to be more and more dull and rainy days, but sometimes it’s really wonderful (like today!), with last warm rays of sunshine caressing the cheeks and tons of colourful leaves falling…My boy on the other hand love autumn and especially our chestnut and leves hunting in the park And this is what this layout is about:
And what’s autumn like in your countries? Is it warm and sunny or cold and rainy?
Hello Maja fans! Gabrielle here with you today to share with you an Autumn Tag I made with the, oh so gorgeous, Walking in the Forest collection! I don’t know how many of you know, but I recently came out with a couple of stamp sets, and for the first time I’ve used my water droplet stamps on a project! I knew that the Maja papers would work nicely with my stamps because they have the perfect balance of simple backgrounds combined with beautiful print images.
Sometimes it’s easier to show how to do something than it is to explain. So I took the time to tape a step by step video on how I put this tag design together. Enjoy! ….
….I hope you enjoyed watching my tutorial as much as I enjoyed creating this project! Here are a few close-ups of my tag to view at a more leisurely pace.
I used a leaf stamp that is part of the water drop stamp collection I made. I used it on some green Fika paper, cut it out, gave it a crinkle and added them to my floral cluster. The lacy doily behind the floral cluster is a die from Memory Box called ‘Quinn Flourish’.
Here is a close-up of the water droplets stamp design. I use a little trick of adding some white highlights to the drops with a white gel pen to give them an extra sheen and even more of a 3D look. The wood floral design is from Wycinanka and the butterfly embellishment is from The Kraft Nook.
Maja Design products papers used on this project: Walking in the Forest (Fresh Air, Birch, Flannel Shirt), Ska vi ta en Fika (Blabarssylt).
I hope you enjoyed my project and video tutorial today and hope you will have yourself some fun with Maja’s ‘Walking in the Forest’ collection. You can find my stamp sets at The Scrapbook Diaries!

Hello Maja lovelies! The air here in New Jersey is cooling down and I can see some signs of Fall already! Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love Fall, but summer is my favorite. That being said, I pulled out some Autumn themed papers and accoutrements, starting with Maja Design’s Walking in the Forest collection: Accompanying the papers are some Spellbinders Maple Leaf dies, wooden accents, twine, pearls and Copper Liquid pearls. My design is loosely based on this week’s Mojo Monday sketch.
Hello,today I am doing a extra post,to give Heather some well deserved me time. Heather & I both love to Scrapbook, and we also share, the love of gardening. So as I was working on this, I was thinking that Heather must be seeing the first signs of Spring, as I am seeing the first signs of fall.I have a huge yard,so I like to use large foliage plants. My garden colors are in all shades of green,purples oranges & yellow. I asked Heather what her garden colors were, & like me Heather has her greenery,but uses pinks,white & blues for her pops of color…..
I used the Walking in the Forrest Collection….
The Chipboard used is from Dusty Attic, here are some closeups of detail…..
I did some ripping,distressing & hand-stitching.I also did some stencil work using TCW confetti (6×6) & Viva modelling cream…..
I inked all the edges of the paper, with vintage photo, distress stain. I also used the stain on the fence,& chicken wire……
I painted the foliage with DA forrest paint,& once that dried, I applied TA lime twist & olive, I used chestnut liquid pearls for the berry’s.Most of the flowers are Petaloo,the orange roses are Prima.
Here are some more close ups….
The butterflies are from LittleScrapShop….

I always have such fun creating these cards . I find the Maja papers such a delight to play with, and these layers are complimented with the blooms and a key . Just look how these papers embrace the blooms .I can just imagine sitting at a table enjoying coffee and cake surrounded by a beautiful garden full of color and blooms .. sigh xoxo I decorated the inside of the card quite simply by adding more striped paper and a small die on the right side . I seemed to be a little carried away with the blooms and just kept adding more of them .These papers blend so beautifully with little pink rosebuds, pink and white roses and a resin key .

Happy Monday!! Marilyn’s here with you today…. The other day I was looking in my memory box and I found this picture of my son Alexander when he was eleven months, he looks so cute and sweet that I can’t believe my baby boy turned 20 years old two months ago…how time flies. I worked with the Vintage Autumn Basics and Walking in the Forest collections in this page.
I gave a little of color to the flowers with Distress Stain(faded jeans) by Ranger.
I hope my page inspired you, until next time!!!
Hello Maja fans! Gabrielle here with you today to share a layout I made of my little great niece playing in the dirt….sometimes it’s fun to just get dirty, isn’t it?! I wanted to stay with some neutral colors with a hint of lavender (to bring out the sweet bow in her hair). To create this page I mixed a variety of collections. Here are the collections I used….
I just love the way you can mix and match different collections. I used the following papers:
Vintage Spring Basics (1st of March), Crea Diem (Karleken Overvinner Allt), Walking in The Forest (Flannel Shirt, Fresh Air).
I used 2 papers from the Walking in the forest collection as my background papers and then cut the cute Daffodil designs from the Vintage Spring Basics collection to create embellishments for the page. I recently came out with my own stamp collection and used them for the first time a this page. For the cracked wall/brick look here, I first stamped the image on the light background paper….I then stamped the same image on the terrcotta color paper (Fresh Air) and cut out the brick section and glued in over the matching stamped area on the light paper so that it looks like cracked plaster walls with brick showing through.
I also used another of my stamp designs in another area of the page. Here I did a little inking behind the photo area and used one of my cracked brick stamp designs to create a rustic look behind the photo area.
I used a new Dusty Attic chipboard piece called Bearded Iris and painted it with some Gesso and chalk inks to compliment the daffodil design in the Maja patterned paper.
I framed another of the cute daffodil designs with another of the Dusty Attic Elegant Frames and finished the corner cluster with some blooms and glass gems.
I hope you enjoyed viewing my page today as much as I enjoyed creating it! Thanks for stopping by! xo
