A lay-out about grandpa in vintage style

Hi Maja fans! It’s Romy here with a lay-out to share. Today I will show you a lay-out I made of my beloved grandpa. Last month I used some of the gorgeous Maja Design “It’s Christmas Time” papers to make a non-Christmas lay-out and I figured that these papers were also perfect for a vintage lay-out about my grandpa.


This time I focused on the brown and red tones in the amazing “It’s Christmas Time” collection. I particularly loved the “Christmas Market” paper, as it really has a vintage feel to it. So I decided to use this paper for my background. Also I did some layering behind my photo to really make it stand out. I arranged my embellishments around the photo as well to make it the main focus of my lay-out.

The grid patterns from Maja Design have always been some of my favourite designs. I love to cut them out and use them to give my projects some more interest. On this lay-out I incorporated a cut out grid pattern behind my photo. The grid pattern was cut out from the “Christmas Joy” paper, that is part of the Vintage Winter collection. 222

My lay-out is titled “Familieman”, which is Dutch for “Family guy”. My grandpa really loves to have all family members together and to play with my little nieces. He definitely is the kind of family guy who keeps us al together as a family. 1111Supply list:
