Well hello Roadies! This is Daniela. Our focus this August are Ken Oliver products and we have a special going on all month. Make sure you visit the store and use coupon code KOlove to get 30% off.
Here is a card I created using Ken Oliver charms.
I started by adding modeling paste to the background and some color shine. I die cut Notepad die from patterned paper and adhered it to the background layered with Glassine Bag. The flowers and leaves from Rose Garden Sentiments Stamp Set are stamped on white cardstock and cut out. Ken Oliver Heart & Key Charm is tied with twine and adhered under the flower. I stamped the sentiment in black ink on a little tag and pinned it with Vintage Pearl Pin - Hot Pink .
Hi Roadies! I hope your summer has been filled with fun and friends. It's Katrina here on the blog today sharing a selfie layout with one of our best friend's dog and I. They came down in July and Cooper is just an old softie! We have known him since he was a pup and he is now around 12 years old. Also, I used a bunch of Ken Oliver products on my layout today and we have a special on the website, 30% off all Ken Oliver products with the code KOlove. So if you see something you like grab it while it's on sale! You can find all those products HERE.
I love how Maya Road supplies just mix seamlessly with paper collections. You can alter them anyway you need to, or the color choices are neutral enough that you can add them as is. I recently got the Vintage Wood Mason Jars and when I saw the small chipboard hearts that went with the paper collection, I knew they would look cute filling the jar. I finished the top of the jar off with some Ken Oliver Jute Craft String and a Ken Oliver Vintage Mini Key. I did use a little liquid adhesive to hold that key just where I wanted it! I backed my picture with some pattern papers and an older Maya Road Kraft Envelope that I used Distress Oxide ink on in two different colors,
When I started my layout, I knew I wanted to use those Vintage Paper Leaves (Ken Oliver), but I had to decide what I wanted to go with them. I wanted to keep it small, so the Resin Flower Sets in Cool Grey and White were my go to item. The flowers come in a variety of sizes and I just figured out what worked with the look I wanted! I added a little shimmer to the leaves, but it's hard to see in the picture!
And to keep with the neutral embellishment color scheme, a Kraft Journaling Tag-Scroll to the rescue! I love bits and pieces tucked here and there. I added a few of the pre-made embellishments from the paper collection and I have a layout of getting a selfie with Cooper!

Hello Roadies! This month we are doing a swap with Photoplay Paper! I used the brand-spanking new Christmas line Mad 4 Plaid, mixing in lots of Maya Road Vintage Charms and Ken Oliver Charms.
I wanted to get as many of the gorgeous papers on this layout as possible, so I decided to create a big title using Frosty, St. Nick, Trim the Tree, Merry and Festive papers from the Mad 4 Plaid collection pack. I cut the large title on my Silhouette and adhered it to my layout, then went through and machine-stitched with white thread for lots of fun texture.
My photo is slightly smaller than 4x6, so I used the Grey+, Green+ and Red+ papers to mat it, adding in a few cardstock stickers to the left for more layers. I added in a Wood Wild & Free Token over the stickers. The bottom right of the photo has another sticker with a token, this time I flipped the token over and used the blank side as a base for the Bottle Brush Tree.
There are tons of stickers in the Mad 4 Plaid collection, so I scattered the sequins and stars all over my page for more whimsy and color on the white background paper.
We are excited to be giving away a $20 coupon to the Maya Road online store to celebrate this blog hop.

I had so much fun making a Christmas layout in July! You can find all the Ken Oliver charms 30% off for the month of August HERE.
Hello Roadies! It's Yasmin back again on the blog today with another share! I've made a fun steampunkish card using the fantastic Maya Road products.
On this card I used my sewing machine to stitch around the egdes of my card. I used some of Maya Roads Kraft tags to layer in the background. I fuzzy cut some fun elements out of paper and glued/stapled the on. By using some of Maya Roads fun elements I got to make a cool face on the lightbulb.
The fun thing about the embellishment is that they are easy to alter og add more interest too since they are so versatile.
Today I would like to share with you my "shine" layout, a birthday party photo with my family members taken at home, a simple birthday party.
I love to do fussy cutting on layouts, but the most interesting part playing with the cuts is adding some more die-cuts using just white cardstock, they pop up so cool. I love those beautiful new butterfly and leaf dies from Maya Road, of course I love all others too :)
Ok, let's go back to our featuring "charms" this month. I added a link of charms using twine, placed on top of my fussy cutting flowers, acrossing the bottom of the page. What I want to show with this link of clock charms is ~ time over time...... we can still "Shine Together". Happy Birthday!
Our focus for the month of July is CHARMS. We have a special going on for the entire month, 30% off all metal charms, just use the code CHARMED at checkout to obtain your discount.
There are so many beautiful products to chose from the store, but i wanted to mixed them up in one single layout, so I opted to create a banner type design to showcase a picture of my daughter.
This layout took very little time to put together. It all started by marking the two holes where the brads would be located. A bit of mixed media (using shimmer inks in this case) adds interest, and color to the simple design.
Once the background was dry, the brads were put in place, and a bit of gold wax cording was run only through one of the brads. Here is where the fun started!. My idea was to center the picture, and add embellishments to each side of the picture.
I started by using the Geometric Feather Die to obtain some feathers, one from pattern paper (Carta Bella's Flora 1 collection), one from vellum, and one from cardstock. I tied them together with some jute twine, and used a Resin Flower to add some decoration to the bunch. Now to start building my banner! I worked from left to right (making sure the picture was centered).
First i thread some stickers from the Hello Lovely collection from Simple Stories, next a key charm from the Ken Oliver Heart and Key charm set, a tag from the Flora collection, followed by the feather bunch. Next i thread the picture, and secure it to the mat using foam adhesive -s0 that there is dimension to the picture-.
Once the picture was secured, i added a Geometric Heart Die cut backed with vellum, and a Star Bright charm, before adding my journal tag. A few more stickers and tags from the two collections being used, and finally a Soaring Bird charm completes the banner. Then the string was secured in the brad.
Now to complete and balance the page, I used the Sparkle and Shine Die Set to create the title of this page. By simply cutting the title from some of the papers used in the layout, and then layering them with a bit of an offset creates the illusion of a dimensional title. A few add ons complete the page.
I hope this inspires you to take a look at all the beautiful MAYA ROAD products available at the online store. Remember there are still a few days to take advantage of the CHARMS promotion.
You can always contact me if you have any questions on how this page came together.

I created a fun card today and incorporated some charms from our collection.
I used With Love Nature Die Bundle for the flower, leaves and the butterfly. I die cut it from patterned paper that I had in my stash. I layered all the die cuts over a journaling card topped with washi tape. I used 3D foam adhesive tor the flower that has two different layers of patterned paper.

My Love Layout by Victoria Calvin
Hello! This is Victoria Calvin and I am excited to be the guest designer for July 2017! A big thank you to the wonderful folks at Maya Road for giving me the opportunity to share a couple of fun creative projects with all of you. Speaking of… let’s take a look at a 12x12 scrapbook layout I created using the following Maya Road goodies:
To begin, I used a floral pattern paper from the Harvest Boutique paper pad by Craft Smith as the background for this layout. The flower design provided the perfect base for the Maya Road tulle flowers and paper leaves.
Next, I layered my photo on another piece of floral pattern paper from the Craft Smith paper pack as well as die cut tabbed index card by Sizzix. The photo is elevated by fun foam for added height and dimension.
To the left side of the photo, I layered a grouping of the Maya Road Tulle Mini Blooms and Tu Tu Tulle Flowers along with two clusters of the Maya Road Paper Leaves. Tucked into this floral cluster is a Maya Road Resin Fancy Frame, a scalloped cork circle and a gold glitter butterfly from my stash. The title was created using Thickers Beautiful and Patchwork sticker fonts. To finish the layout, I added a Maya Road Mini Clip to the top left of the photo that is adorned with a tiny twine bow.
I absolutely love the overall look of this layout! The gorgeous Maya Road floral elements perfectly highlight the floral design of the patter paper and add a small touch of whimsy to the layout.
I will be back in a few days with another fun project featuring a Maya Road pennant chipboard album! Stay tuned!
Check back in Friday for another gorgeous project from Victoria!
