Maja's November Layouts

A very good morning to you, Blue Fern Studios friends, welcome to the blog today!

The year is coming to an end, and we think of Christmas more and more, getting ready for the holiday, but before I totally get involved into Christmas projects, let me first share some other things ;-)

This first layout is the one you might have already seen if you visited our November challenge post:

I used the Memoirs collection, and chose a burgundy-golden-brown palette for my layout. I added some stamping on the background paper, matted the photo with postcard images cut out from the Photographic Record sheet. Then I added the largest Roman clock piece embossed with Antique Gold and Black Sand eps:

As the November challenge is all about title pieces, I used the longest title I had to make it really stand out :-) I embossed it with Ruby ep and then accented the word "story" with red glitter:

Finally, I added a couple of flowers and embellies and clock hands embossed with Mushroom:

Each Day Is A Story Worth Telling:
Papers: Memoirs: Autumn Biography, Photographic Record
Chipboard: Roman Clock Set Large, Each Day
Flowers: Attic Charm Glitter Roses, Attic Charm Daisies, Courtship Blooms
Stamps: Journey, Postal Textures
EP: Antique Gold, Black Sand, Mushroom, Ruby

My second layout also features the Memoirs collection, but this time I decided to use a light, subtle colours - yes, I think they fits boy pages too :-)

There are a few bolder black accents, like stamping on the background page and a metal tab under the photo:

Otherwise I kept the delicate tones with the title chipboard embossed with Oatmeal ep and pieces of the Marrakesh Panel that I split into several parts and embossed with the Lilac powder:

Million Dollar Smile:
Papers: Memoirs: Photographic Record, Nature's Novel, Tale of Treasures
Chipboard: Million Dollar Smile, Marrakesh Panel
Flowers: Harvest Lilies, Late Winter Lilies, Courtship Bloom
Stamps: Deja Vu, Photography
EP: Lilac, Oatmeal

Those were my Memoirs layouts, but since I just got my DT box filled with the gorgeous Vintage Christmas 2 papers, I couldn't resist making one more page using our latest release :-) And here it is:

I began by cutting the decorative edge of the Twas the Night sheet and layering it upon the Let It Snow paper.

Then I added some stamping and made the title: I cut the word "Christmas" off the Twas the Night chipboard title and placed it on the Fancy Signage piece. I embossed the latter with Oatmeal and Snow powders and for the title word I mixed the Ruby ep with some red glitter for extra sparkle :-)

I also experimented with the Large Flake piece - I mixed Snow, Sea Mist and Icicle powders to create my cutsom mint tinsel :-) I added Spiritually Speaking words, just like the title embossed with Ruby ep and red glitter:

A little flower cluster including Christmas Blooms and Spring Lilies as well an the ornate Candle Stick piece complete my layout:

Papers: Vintage Christmas 2: Let It Snow, Twas the Night, Holiday Treats, Holiday Cards
Chipboard: 'Twas the Night, Large Flake, Candle Stick, Spiritually Speaking, Fancy Signage
Flowers: Christmas Blooms, Spring Lilies
Stamps: Forever, Ornaments
EP: Oatmeal, 14 Karat, Snow, Ruby+ Red Glitter, Icicle+Snow+Sea Mist

And that is all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later!
