Hi there dear Maja friends!
Ingrid here today with, I’m sadly to say, my last blogpost here at Maja’s.
It’s been a wonderful journey with a wonderful team!
I want to thank the Maja staff for having me and letting me play with all those
gorgeous papers! <3
Also want to thank this awesome team, you girls are amazing!!! <3

With my last post I want to share my love for all the papers.
As you might know I have made a lot of mini cakes.
This post will show a few of them with different collections.

This cake is my latest, made with the Summer Crush collection.

20150723_151052These cakes are pre made but can easily be made with small round boxes.
They can be opened and they have room for a small note or present.

20150723_151407For the tops of the cakes I applied some fabric fiber to imitate the whipped cream.
Once dry, I gave it a touch with some gesso.

20150723_151452Loving these colors together, esp. my favorite, turquoise!

Hi there Maja friends!
Ingrid here today with an altered photo frame with shutters.
Made this one with the gorgeous “Summer Crush” collection.

IMG_1076Photo is of my youngest girl with her boyfriend when they just fell in love.

IMG_1087Made some rolled flowers with the papers as well.
Just love making those and they always matches the project!

IMG_1098The white swirl is from Scrapberry’s and the heart string is a piece of a child necklace.

IMG_1090For the shutters I cut some small strips of paper and distressed the edges.

IMG_1096Another lovely detail: an earring I found in my treasure box.
Never throw away single earrings! 🙂

IMG_1101I wove a small strip of the “sweetheart” sheet through the white chipboard fence.

IMG_1089Some matching flowers were given a coat with gesso to give them a more softer look.

IMG_1092I bet you are falling in love with this gorgeous collection as well!

Hi there Maja fans!
Ingrid here today with a project made with the new collection Summer Crush.
For these drawers I used the blue and light brown tones.
These colors reminded me of the beach so I’ve added some seashells, some bought and some self collected from the beach.

IMG_1108Started with two sheets of papers for the base.
I used the “long summer nights” for the top and sides and the hearts.
The “he gives her flowers” for the drawers.
Distressed all the edges.

IMG_1112Two chipboard hearts were also ‘dressed’ with the beautiful papers.
The white polymer sea items are from Scrapberry’s.
Also added some mesh and gauze


The drawers had the “he gives her flowers” as a base and the “long summer nights” for the hearts. All the edges were distressed.


Found the lovely metal heart in my stash.

IMG_1115For the square ( a lid of a small chipboard box ), I used the “he gives her flowers” and “dancing the Bop” papers.

IMG_1117Made some thread flowers in a matching creme color.

IMG_1122Some mesh and gauze for extra interest.

IMG_1126Small frame from Scrapberry’s and a handmade thread flower.

Long summer nights, he gives her flowers, butterflies in her stomach, dancing the Bop.

Enjoy your day!

layout for my girl

Hi all!
Remember my layout for my youngest girl, Yiscka?
Today I have one project featuring my oldest, Tessa.
Made this one with the Vintage baby collection as well.


My girl….so special to me!


Created the background with a mix of gesso with 13arts magic powder. Made it quite thick so it gives all the big cracks which I love.


The heart got the same treatment as the background. Added some extra paint.
Made the big blue splatters with Distress stain, Stormy sky.


Lots of dimension!


Some Prima flowers were painted blue.


The word ‘special’ from the bottom strip from Ephemera cards sheet.


Papers used:
Sweet little Prince, Journaling cards, Die cuts, Ephemera cards.

Enjoy your day!

From the Ska Vita En Fika collection the ‘chaite’ sheet at the top.
NoXII from the Vintage Autumn collection at the bottom.
Some lace, ribbon and puffy paint.


Made some confetti from the papers as well.
I put the cake on a CD disk with a doily.
