Scrapping Pink! {Maja Design and Tresors de Luxe}


Hi everyone! Today I have a 'pretty in pink' layout to share with you, using Maja design papers, Dusty Attic Chipboard and lots of lovely goodies from Tresors de Luxe Etsy shop.  I almost feel a little guilty sharing this layout because this is from a Maja Design Limited Edition collection that I believe is now sold out....but then of course, that means that a lot of you have this collection in your stash, and might like to see more samples done with this collection.

Sofiero-P

I just love the florals and beautiful pinks and greens in this collection. The papers I used for this project are.....

Maja Design Papers:
Sofiero (Royal Summer Recidence, Enjoying the Lovely Fragrance, Romantic Picnic in the Park, Stroling Down the Rose Path).


I was given these beautiful handmade blooms (Multi-color Chiffon Flowers) from my friend Lucy at Tresors de Luxe Etsy site. When I saw the pretty fabric blooms I thought immediately of the the Maja Design Sofiero collection, I just knew these blooms would work well with these papers!  Lucy has such an amazing collection of beautiful handcrafted blooms in her store and her vintage lace is absolutely gorgeous.  I also used one of her 'Shabby-chic Floral Clusters' on this page along with some of her lovely vintage lace.  If you haven't visited Lucy's shop before, you are in for a treat!


I love these papers so much that I've used up most of my stash, but I still had lots of bits and pieces left, so I used some of these to make the little ribbon banners coming out of the side of my page design. I added machine stitching to the paper ribbons to give more of a 'fabric' look to them.


I accented my page with a few pieces of  Dusty Attic chipboard (Skeleton Clock frame, Folliage, Wrought Iron Fence, Speech Bubbles, Ornate Corner #6). I also added a bit of of texture with home-made texture paste and a Crafters Workshop stencil (Mini-Damask).

A question I get asked a lot is where you can find Maja Design Papers and Dusty Attic chipboard in North America.  I try to keep up to date links in my side panel of my blog as sources for my blog folowers....but two shops that carry a good supply are: 
The Scrapbook Diaries (For Maja Design Papers....and Yes! Janene has ordered in the ENTIRE new 'Coffee in the Arbour' collection!)
Moments of Tranquility (Natasha has a HUGE collection of Dusty Attic chipboard in her online store as well as Maja Design papers).

Thanks so much for stopping by today and letting me share my latest project with you! I appreciate all the sweet comments and feedback! xo xo

I LOVE your work. I'm just wondering though, are these 3 dimensional pages meant to go into a scrapbook. Won't they be completely flattened. Or do you display them on some sort of stand or in a shadowbox?

Beautiful page Gabi! I guess I am lucky that I have the last pkg of Sofiero papers coming in. Another great place with an awesome selection of Maja Desgin papers is the Funkie Junkie Boutique. She has almost every line! And already has the new one in her store :)I love the flowers from Tresors so adorable. Another beauty. How do you keep up??

Your layout is lovely and very dimensional. I was wondering if you put these in frames or in a scrapbook? Do they hold up well in page protectors?

Thanks,
