Hello Maja Fans, welcome to the blog today 🙂

It’s Maja here to share my recent creations. Both feature the Ska Vi Ta En Fika? collection with its beautiful beiges, purples and greens to add some colour to greys of these days 🙂 I do miss the spring!

The first one is a layout in which I added some blues and white shades to cold crisp beige background:

mdymmhI stamped the bacgkround paper with stamps designed by my fellow DT member for Maja, Gabi Pollacco – great work, girl!

mdymmh1For the top layer of the background, I cut the Kaffetaren… sheet diagonally to omit the coffee pot image and feature just the flourish corners. Then I distressed and curled out the edges:

mdymmh2I placed the flower cluster tucking the flowers and other elements between the background paper and the curled edge of the top layer:

mdymmh4To make the photo section more interesting, I used the same photo in two sizes, placing the small one into a resin frame:

mdymmh3Blue is not an essential colour in the “Fika” collection, but I think it looks great with it 🙂

Now let’s have a look at my other creation – a wedding card:

mdslfHere I combined the warm beige papers of the collection with delicate purples. I was inspired by the rose motif of the Chaite paper and delicate flourishes that happen to be very similar to the chipboard floruishes I had in my stash 🙂

mdslf1I built my flower cluster around the printed roses, making them a part of the design:

mdslf2I mounted each layer on 3D dots for more dimension. I also added several liquid pearl dots as a finishing touch:

  • Very pretty page and layout. I love the browns and blues – lovely colors! I really like how you’ve rolled back the paper – it looks awesome. And, the youngsters are adorable! And, wow, your wedding card is beautiful and elegant. Thanks for sharing!

    I’m jumping up and down here. I just want to shut down my computer and start scrapping! You’ve used some of my favourite papers on the layout, it’s so nice to see. 🙂 And I love how differently you use them. Such a smart idea to use the background flowers on the card in combination with the embellies. Thanks for the tip.

  • Love both of your projects Maja! Your page design is beautiful and the photos are cute as can be! Love the way you used my stamp! And your card is perfection! xo
