Hello and a very warm welcome to Maja Design.

It is Tina here with you today to share my next layout. I have been playing with the “Summertime” collection which I have fallen madly in love with, so don’t be surprised if you see me using this again and again!

I have titled this ….“Seaside”…..

2016-10-24 Seaside 015

I found this photo of my youngest a few weeks back and put it to the side and it wasn’t until I pulled it out again that I noticed my eldest daughter was also in the picture in the background ……so I just had to use it! I have kept the layout soft and softened it more by tearing the “Cute Summer Dress” a and b sides allowing the core to show through., They have been layered up with a little Kraft Cardstock. I have also cut the frames from “By the Sea” a side and reversed some to show the b side. I also saved the strip from the paper to thread through the lace at the left and right of the layout. You can see this below.

I love nothing better than to do a little op shopping to find odd bits and pieces to add to my layouts. And this is where the scrabble pieces come from. I made them a little shabbier by added a dry brush of gesso to them and then layered them up through the middle of my flower cluster and large anchor at the right of the layout.

Above and below are a few more close-ups for you. I had thought I was finished and took photos went to bed and come back the next day to find that I thought it needed a little more, so I then made some flourish transparencies using a stamp and Seafoam embossing powders. I fussy cut these and cut them down smaller to add around my layout.


Below are the papers that I have used from the Summertime collection to complete my layout.

You can see the Dusty Attic chipboard anchor below. It was dressed with a little Crackle Paste and then I rubbed in some Distress Ink and wiped it over with a little Glimmer Paint.

I’m going to be an Aunt <3

Hello Everyone :-)

Today it is my turn to present one project for Maja Design. 

The project I’m going to show you today is one project I created 25 August, but because of bad images, the time was never right, it never got published. But today it’s time, and you know what is funny is that these images are the first pictures I took of the project.

You know I’m going to be a Aunt, for the first time in February next year <3 But to tell you how this project started, we need to go some months back. My sister called me at the start of August to tell me she was pregnant, and the due date is February the 18. She also told me that she wanted to tell it in a very special way, in fact she whant to tell it with a specal project. How this project was going to be, it was all up to me, but it had to be a calendar on it, since we not at that time knew if it was a boy or a girl, the project had to be in neutral colors.

I liked the idea right away, I liked it alot, and that this is not a project you see each day. What is special about this box is that this is the first project I make to my aunt children <3

For this box I’ve used paper from two different Maja Design collections. Vintage Romance and Vintage Spring Basics. I have chosen out those sheets in a gray and bright tone.



After I had covered the box with pattern sheets, I attached silver feet below the box, glue on buttons and pearl ribbon on the sides and the edges.

On the lid of the box I made one plateau, this I did because it would be easier to decorate and put things I create in 3D and other details.

On two of the sides I have decorated with one locomotive (my own tutorial), an elephant that I found in a folding book for children, butterflies, flowers, buttons, pearls, cheese cloth and blocks.

On the other two sides, I have many of the same details, but here I have one 3D plane (put together with my own turorial) and a Giraffe folded from the same children book that the elephant.

Atop of the plateau i have a easel that I have made myself, with a calendar on. Around the due date which is the 18 I have a heart and on the top of the calendar I have written February. February is punched out with one set of dises from kaBoks.

On the side of the calendar are several blocks, these blocks I have used one dies of one train and placed on blocks that I have put together. The other details are pearl and butterflies.

One very special project from me today, that means a lot to me that I got to make it <3 <3 <3

And before I quit my blog post, I would like once again to say congratulations to my sister and the great man she is with <3  You’re going to be a great dad and mom to a little boy coming in February <3

Hello dear friends, its Evgenia Petzer with you today. Being a mom to three boys, I can’t get enough of a baby theme! One of my all time favourites! And the Vintage Baby collection- I am cutting and cutting it again.

I will start with the baby boy card. I decided to add some turquoise color as a little contrast…

Some die  its, the heart border is cut from the felt, so it gives that little extra soft touch to the project.


some close ups:

Hello and Happy Thursday!

“I Wish” is a beautiful a versatile new collection from Maja. At first glance it appears to be a Christmas or Winter collection but as you can see I created a page about LOVE. I used an engagement photo of my daughter and new son in law and the papers make this photo pop from the page! Just complete perfection in this collection, for sure!

Longing for Summer

Hi there! I am currently working with the new beautiful collection “I wish“, but unfortunately I have not finished a card yet… But I would like to share this card instead, and I promise a Christmassy card next time 😉 Here I have used the gorgeous collection Summertime, and some of the blue colours.


I will give you the list of the papers used in the end of this post.


I have coloured up an Magnolia image (Tilda in the Wind from the Sea Side Collection 16). I have used Distress Ink for my colouring.


The metal corner is from WOC, and I have coloured it with white Gesso. The white spots are made with Fran-Tage Shabby White.


Bow die from Magnolia. Spots in Tildas hair are liquid pearls.


Beautiful texts on the tags from Stempelglede.


I think the Autumn is cozy, but still miss the Summer. It is so lovely to have a long holiday, and be  able to take trips here and there. Be in the sun, and feel the warm breeze.


Here are the beautiful papers used:

Thank you so much for visiting the blog today!
