Hello Maja fans!  Gabrielle here with you today to share a layout I made using the beautiful Sophiero Collection.  I almost feel a little guilty sharing this layout because this is from a 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.


I just love the florals and beautiful pinks and greens in this collection.  The papers I used for this project are….. Sofiero (Royal Summer Recidence, Enjoying the Lovely Fragrance, Romantic Picnic in the Park, Stroling Down the Rose Path).

Hello close3

I was given these beautiful handmade blooms 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!

Hello close2

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.

Hello close1

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).

Thanks so much for stopping by today and letting me share my latest project with you! xo
