Beloved....Maja Design

Hello!! This is my second post today, my previous post were photos of my Maja Design classes at the Scrapper Place Event that you can see it here.  Here's a layout that I made with the Gorgeous Sofiero collection by Maja Design....Sofiero has these beautiful soft colors and beautiful designs that I love it!!! This page has many techniques and it's full of textures!
I added a paper from the Vintage Spring Basics collection to mat my photo.  I'm playing with this page in Scrap Africa-Distress challenge, well I did many different distress techniques in this page, I distressed with my scissors, I tried with a knife,too, but the fun part was the chalk distress. 

I added texture to the background paper" The Magnificent Flowerstreet" with a mask by Heidi Swapp (hearts) and molding paste, then I added some mash tape, lace, flowers to the borders of the papers then I applied gesso and painted with Shimmerz paints.

love layers and dimension....

I made a design, draping the paper and putting my photo as the focal point with a chipboard frame that I painted with gesso, Shimmerz and then stamped with Distress Ink.

Supplies: Sofiero collection" Enjoying the Fragance, Exuberance the flowers in bloom, The Magnificent of the Flowerstreet papers", Vintage Spring Basics: Days to Remember.  Prima flowers, Heidi Swapp stencil, Shimmerz Paints, Liquitex gesso, Leaky Shed-frame chipboard, Scrapmatts-chipboard

Photos!!!...Scrapper Place Event- Maja Design classes

Hello lovely friends! Last November, I gave two classes in the Scrapper's Place Event at Hotel Marriot in Aguadilla, PR...and I was so busy with my move and all that it involves that didn't show you photos of the event.  Both classes were with Maja Design collections, Prima flowers, cherubs,mask and more.... I began with a full house Saturday but I didn't take photo of the entire group, well first day means a little of stress, I was giving class to one hundred girls at the same time so I took pair of photos to some girls working in their layouts. Next day, Sunday, Rebeca, the owner of Scrapper Place took some photos and I'm sharing with you today.  Thanks to all the wonderful ladies that attended my classes, it was an awesome experience.


... me with the Sunday's group that didn't talk...only work and work, they finished both layouts!!

Thanks for your visit!!!
Have a great day!

Believe***Scrap around The World***

Hello! It's the mid month reveal at Scrap Around The World that has a fabulous moodboard designed by DT member Riikka Kovasin from Finland.   And stay tuned to SATW that we have a big celebration soon.
I love this moodboard and the colors are so pretty.... I made this page also inspired in this quote.

April challenge- Scrap Around The World

I used the Fairy Flora collection by Prima in my page and the 13Arts products: clear medium and the Ayeeda mist- chalk turquoise.

Love that bulb from Prima Junk Yard Finding collections by Ingvild Bolme.

Prima flowers and trinkets. I also incorporated thread and moss to give more textures.

I inspired in the bottom right photo of the moodboard, I made circles with jute and glued them with the Ayeeda-acrylic clear medium  then I applied gesso, molding paint, a mask, stamps and paints to create the background.

The deadline for this challenge is April 30th, 2014, for all details please go... HERE

Welcome Spring with Maja Design - April Moodboard

Hello! Finally looks like Spring is coming here and it make me happy!! I love to see all beautiful flowers and the trees are wearing green leaves!
Today I share with you this spring page I made about my DD Paola using one of my favorite collection...Vintage Spring Basics by Maja Design.  My inspiration was a full pleated skit that I made a time ago and I created the same effect with the Maja Design papers.

I tie the tag with a jute and added cheesecloth around the flowers.

I cut the tags, butterflies and the tittle from the "Days to remember" paper

All the flowers are from Prima and I made the leaves using two punches one from Martha Steward and the other from Stamping Up.

Supplies: Days to Remember, 4th, 6th and 7th of May papers by Vintage Spring Basics collection, Prima flowers, Martha Steward & Stamping Up punches, Liquitex gesso, acrylic paint.

It's April and Maja Design has a new mood board that has a Easter theme and is based in the Vintage Spring Basics collection...

My Creative Scrapbook -April Limited Edition kit

Hello lovely scrappers!!!  It's another month...   and it's time for the April reveal at My Creative Scrapbook kits...Four new kits for every scrap style plus many add-on.
This month I worked with the Limited Edition kit that is featuring CratePaper..."Oh Darling" and so much more...
Here's my first page..for this page I cut the doilies from one of the papers and used them like layers behind for photo, by the way the photo is a memory of DD Paola when she was four years old.

I made an embellishment cluster using the chipboard, stickers, flowers and wood butterflies from the kit.

I love this photo of my girl.

I cut only half of the paper doily the other part I used it in my bottom portion of my page.

2-The Sweetest of Moment

I played the chevron design paper and mixed with this lovely flower paper.  I added some gesso, molding paste, stencil and the sequins in the background .  I cut my tittle from one of the Crate papers.
Prima flower and these wood leaves from the kit.

I put my second photo inside of this envelope that comes in the kit.

My third page.....

Well I made a mess in this page, I was playing with textures and different elements from the kit to create a textured background and this was the result..It isn't my style but it's ok sometimes  to get out of my comfort zone and play with new styles...don't you think?

Here you can see all the layers I made with different textures and elements from the kit...

Love all these elements from the kit :  Air hot balloons, dress, butterflies, pockets, arrows...  you will found many pieces like these to work with...

4- An altered project...

For my last project,  I made a box.  First, I covered with paper and gesso, the I glued stickers, chipboard, cards, sequins around the box and the applied a lite coat of gesso.

Around the lid, I glued some chipboard and in the top I created like a display with all the beautiful chipboard pieces.

For the final touches, I added these pretty bows, flowers and little pieces from the kit.  Now my girl has a pretty box for keeping her bows and things.

Here's the beautiful April Limited Edition kit and to reserve one for you go....HERE
