Getting my Pink on with Sofiero!

Posted by Gabrielle Pollacco

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

    Oh my oh my it is soooo beautiful. Really well done here to a gorgeous project and in such amazing colorscheme too. I love it.

    Wow, definitely a wow page, the twisted stitching around the page and the stich on the small banners, also love how the wide banner strip in the center has punching on one side and stiching with the small strips layered on the other, but both have the lace that pulls it together. Its al stunning.

    I don’t think there’s anyone of the team who has dared to toss away a single scrap of Sofiero, me included. 🙂 It’s wonderful to see how you all treat the last pieces with extraordinary love and care. Beautiful job.
