Memories {Maja Design & Scrapbook Diaries Kit/Video Tutorial}

 
Hi everyone!  I've got another layout today that I made using Maja Design papers for The Scrapbook Diaries.  I did another paper gather technique for this one and as always you can have unlimited viewing of the video tutorial with the purchase of this lovely kit from Scrapbook Diaries.

 
I did some fussy cutting from one of my favorite papers from Maja Design 'Vintage Autumn Basics', the floral paper labelled 'No. II', I also cut out a number of the clocks from the paper labelled 'XVI'.  I did an underlayer of gathered paper using the 'Heritage' paper from the same collection.  And finished the design using some of the lovely new 'Mini Hinges' from Dusty Attic.

 
Here is a close up look at some of the fussy cutting and the gathered paper design that I have peeking out of a tear in the paper. 

 
A close-up view of some of the embellishments included in this page kit.  In video I show how I used the Tattered Angels Mist and package of Bo Bunny stamps (included in the kit) to create the background desing on this page.
 
 
I created a quick template that you can save to your computer, for cutting out the heart design I used on this page.  Just right click on the photo above and 'save picture as' to your computer.  When you go to print, print on a standard 8.5 x 11 inch paper.
 
NOTE:  This is a slightly more advanced page design but I feel with the video tutorial you won't have a problem creating the design....but if you would like to keep it more simple you can put the patterned paper in as a single flat layer as well and still have a lovely page design.
 
If you would like to try creating this page and purchase the materials I used to create this layout you can check out The Scrapbook Diaries,  Janene's kits are always an amazing value and have so many wonderful and unique papers, embellishments and mixed media items.  You also get unlimited access to the video tutorial I created to go with this page design.  You can find out more info and  purchase this kit from The Scrapbook Diaries HERE.
 
Hope you enjoyed my project today and feel inspired to get your scrap on! xo

This is a masterpiece!~
It invokes feelings in me of vintage
curtains; or an antique trunk filled with gorgeous lacy
treasures and bits of
feminine and romantic ephemera~!
There is always beauty in your work Gabi!
