Maja Designs

Hey everyone.....this month each CT member was able to pick their own product to work with and I chose Maja Designs and boy was I happy when I received my package!  Their papers are so much more beautiful in person....

For both my layouts I used the Crea Diem Line.  To shoe the versatility I created both a masculine and a feminine layout


I also recieved the Kasier craft wood and the Fabscraps title which I painted with the Tim Holtz crackle paint from a preivous kit.  The Kaisercraft blooms I sprayed with some blue and green mists to alter them just a little.  I also used a Prima bird from a precious kit
here are some of the details



 Now my second layout I used the same beautiful papers....they are so gorgeous!  Lots of layers and flowers & ribbon from previous kits.  I also chose the Fabscraps title which I embossed with black embossing powder


some of the details


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will think of maja designs next time you are looking for some beautiful papers!

Sorry I have not updated lately!  It is a crazy time of year!  but I do love it!  The anticipation, the kids getting anxious, the smiles on peoples faces....

I wanted to share some more layouts I created with this months kit from the Flying Unicorn!

I LOVED the Tereasa Collins Vintage Findings in this months kit!  The paper is perfect for layering and the embellishments are awesome.  Here is one about our youngest.....

There was also a few sheets of Cosmo Cricket.... talk about a versatile kit!  This is my sister in law and her granddaughter!

Also this month The Flying Unicorn sponsored CSI color challenge blog.....VERY cool site and IC reated two layouts for it....The first one used Riddersholm papers and my Grandfather

The next one I used Glitz Designs papers and Manor house flowers.....this is our oldest....I must admit I love the way it turned out

I was lucky enough to receive Graphic 45's Nutcracker Sweet as this months product spotlight!  LOVE this line...the colors are vibrant, and the designs are awesome....I wanted to do something a little different this month and decided to create some home decor items!


the wreath

o create the wreath I used 7 sheets of double sided paper and a 10" foam wreath shape, and pearl glimmer mist!

The tree
The tree took 3 sheets of paper, a 12" foam form, texture paint and a few ornaments for small trees.  I sprayed the foam form with green glimmer mist

the ornaments

To make the ornaments you would need, 3 sheets of double sided paper, clear bulbs, and glitter!

hi everyone!  I hope you are all having a wonderful day!  This months kit was ful of gorgeous papers and a too fun OTP!  Lets start with my OTP

I stared at my OTP for a day....I LOVED it but to tell the truth I was a little worried...the ladies on this incredible team ALWAYS rock the OTP!  I wanted to stick with teh Christmas theme so I created this
I had some Christmas picks which I glued on, added the word 'JOY' and used gold and red glimmer mist on the Kaiser wood stars (you can find them at the Unicorn store) and voila I have a a Christmas display for my wall!
here is some of the details
I also had fun creating with the Authentique peaceful line that had papers in this months kit!  Awesome line
The first one I created I layered a few of teh papers, distressed the edges, used the brink stencil -available at the store - and some texture paint from my stash and made some splatters for Tammy's challenge this month!  Before now I had not tried this technique but man I love the results!  I added the prima bird, the corner bling and the canvas flags all from the kit!

Also in this kit were some papers I was coveting....the Tereasa Collins Vintage gorgeous stuff!  The papers are fabulous and so are the embellishments....  I LOVE the gold accents!
I inked all the edges of the papers, folded over the corner on one of the papers (I used a ot of hot glue to keep it from letting go) and added the corner bling.  I also used the Vintage finds Border Strips to create a couple of rosettes and I altered the Vintage Finds Paper Flowers into my own flower!
