Beautiful for Maja Design

Hi everyone. Sadly this is my last post for Maja Design.
I'm pregnant with baby #2 and my mind and body aren't cooperating the way that I would like, so I'm taking a break from some of my scrapbooking commitments to try to get a little more rest.

For my last layout I have used the Nyhavn Collection to create a vintage style layout. 

I used three papers from the Nyhavn collection to layer together and create my background. These papers were, The Sunny Side, A Dockside in Bloom & Kings Square.

I added white texture paste through a floral and diamond stencils.

I coloured my chipboard with Distress Ink in Hickory Smoke to match the colour of the King's Square paper. Then I embellished with yellow, peach and grey flowers to compliment the papers.

Blue Fern Studios August Layouts

Hi all, today I have two layouts to share with you.

Beach Babe

My first layout is using the gorgeous new Seaside Cottage collection. This collection is PERFECT for all your beach photos!!!

I chose the Embark paper for my background and placed my photo so the sand matched up to the beige half of the paper. I added a little interest to my back ground with the Forever and Essential Texture stamps. 

On the Seaside Lantern chipboard I first covered it with white crackle paste, then I coloured it with blue spray and inked the edges with brown ink.

To the Seaside Flourish chipboard piece I gave it texture with white sand paste before I coloured it with beige spray and brown ink.

On my title Beach Babe I used a mix of embossing powders in Bonny Blue, Breeze, Oatmeal and Snow to colour it

To embellish I used gorgeous flowers from the Seaside Lillies and Tranquil Roses and Lillies packs along with some real seashells and starfish.

On my second layout I chose to use the Courtship Lane collection. I always love a purple layout :)

I coloured all my chipboard pieces in embossing powder. I used the colours Amethyst, Mystic Plum, Oatmeal & Iris.

I finished the layout with lots of flowers from the Courtship Roses, Courtship Blooms & Tranquil Roses and Lillies.

By The Sea Summertime Box for Maja Design

Hi everyone. Today I have a new Maja Design creation for you.
In the weekend I was cleaning up the cupboards and found this box, I was the perfect size to alter :)
I chose the Summertime (By The Sea) papers to turn this old box into a new storage container for my Sea Shells

I started by covering the box this white gesso to cover up the original colour.

Next I used the Gives Me Joy paper to cover the outside of the box, and Glittering Waves paper to cover the sides.

I cut two tags from the By The Sea Die Cuts paper to embellish the top. Then I added some metal pieces, flowers, ribbon, shells and liquid pearls to decorate my box.

 I used the Gives Me Joy paper to cover the inside of the box, and the Glittering Waves paper on the inside of the lid. I then cut out the adorable image of a boy and girl at the beach from the Die Cuts paper to place inside.
