May Boy - Maja Design

 Little Boy 800
May Boy -Featuring Maja Design.

Happy Friday to you. I am bringing you a layout and a video showing how I used the Vintage Summer Basics and the Vintage Spring Basics collections from Maja Design together. It's quite easy to combine these collections making them so fun to use.

This features a photo image of a little boy at a wedding I attended.  I brought my camera and followed this sweetiepie around till I got the pouty look I wanted.  It was not hard and I diid not wait too long.  hahahaha

Here is a video to show how I assembled my page and my thought process behind my choices.  There is also a guest star's cameo appearance in the video at the very end.  I should really call it a "cameow" appearance.    Not to worry - the video is less than 4 min long.  I believe in keeping it short and simple - just to show you quickly the concepts and the execution.

I started with Vintage Summer Basics 1905 BAS-528 for the  background.  It's a very cool, versatile piece of paper.  I wish I had a few more sheets of this. 528-1905I also used Vintage Spring Basics 3rd of April.   603-3rd-of-april-bs   Here are the close ups: I inked some lace and some paper flowers, did a little stamping and a lot of edge inking.

I also added some Blue Fern Studio chipboard to this as great accent pieces.  They are inked in Tim Holtz Walnut.  The walnut ink is dark and rich and a little rustic feeling to match my woodgrain paper.

In the corner is the wonderful new Blue Fern Symphony Corner -Small.

Here I have used the Blue Fern Studio Organic Vine.  It's a great piece that can be tucked anywhere fro strong accent.

  1. Just stunning Jen!! I love the rustic look and feel to this LO!

  2. That little boy's pout is too sweet! The video was awesome. I love this piece - gorgeous.

  3. Extremely stunning layout. Thanks for sharing your techniques.

  4. The layout is amazing, Jen, and it was great watching your creative genius in action (and it was so nice to see that I'm not the only one who suddenly decides something needs inking AFTER it's been attached!!) Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Thank you so much for the video, I love watching the creative process of others and this was so inspiring, your page is amazing, I think I'm going to have to try it myself. Thanks again for sharing.
