Hello dear friends! Its Evgenia Petzer with you today and I have made some projects and will now show them one by one to you.

So first come up the masculines projects. In Russia we celebrate the 23rd of February as the mens day, so I made some projects fro this them. As for me the Nyhavn collection has definitely some masculine part in it, so I used this limited collection for my projects.  I added some random black stitching, some kraft die cuts and metal bits and pieces (Prima ones)



The next one is an altered  box, inside of each there is a mini book, that says- 10 reasons why I love you.man_box

In this card the chipboard I have used is from Wycinanka and the lace is from Le Tresors De Luxe.easter3_det2

Have a lovely weekend

Goodmorning everyone,

I am so amazed by the Maja design team and I still need to pinch myself sometimes that I am part of it. It’s always a blessing to work with these beautiful papers Marie designs. Today I would like to show you a layout I made with the “Nyhavn”collection I feel really sad that this is a limited edition one because the colors of the papers are very unique. For my layout I also used some beautiful chiffon flowers & lace by Tresors de Luxe which go great with the Nyhavn collection. The chipboard I used is by Creative Embellishments they have very romantic designs <3


The picture I used is one of my cousin Nicole {who lives in Florida} her teenage daughter & her boyfriend. Not so long ago he asked her to marry him and they are so crazy about each other. My cousin had her at a very young age {party girl} and I never would of imagine that she is the one who is so responsible and religious as she is. She is such a amazing young lady and I wish her all the happiness in the world.



I added some rub on words that I got at my local dollar store to give my layout a more personal touch. Not that long ago Nadene her grandmother {from her dad’s side} contacted me because she is also a scrapper and we had a lovely talk and this will be a present to her hope she will like it. I really love this picture of the two of them so adorable….

Hey Hey! and Happy February!

I have a sweet page to share with you today that I created using a photo of my pretty niece from a few years ago.

I chose from Coffee in the Arbour Collection because I adore the mix of soft yellows, cream, and plum.

I kept the page open, clean and a bit simple in design to show off the wonderful pattern in

the papers that I completely love.


Torn papers with inked chipboard, sweet flower clusters and a sprinkling of

sparkly crystals make this page complete.

Hi everyone! It’s Gabrielle here with you today to share a special page I made for my parents anniversary this month.  They are having their 58th wedding anniversary, such a wonderful milestone.  For this page I combined a number of paper collections, using 5 different papers. (Vintage Summer Basics 1922, Nyhavn-Strolling Along the Canal, Vintage Summer Basics 1923, Ska Vi ta en Fika-Pratstund, Vintage Autumn Basics-XVI).


I began by using the Vintage Summer Basics 1922 paper as my matting/background paper. I then cut the corner and 1/4 inches off the edges of the Nyhavn paper, which I then painted with some Shimmerz paints (Black Cherry Soda Creameez and Onyx Inklingz) and stamped liberally around the photo area with some stamps that I designed for The Scrapbook Diaries.  I then layered on a crocheted lace Doily from Tresors de Luxe and a chipboard frame from Dusty Attic (Swirly Frame and Laurel Leaf chippies).


I created coordinating blossoms using the Rose Creations dies from Spellbinders, using the scraps from the Vintage Summer Basics 1922 and 1923 papers.  I cut the smaller inner petals from the darker pink paper and the larger petals from the light pink paper.  I also cut out a few green leaves using the Ska vi ta en Fika paper (leaf dies are from the Rose Creations set).


I added a cluster of embellishments in the bottom right corner using a couple of Dusty Attic chippies (title and scroll).  I also added some texture using a Prima flourish stencil and home-made texture paste. And as always I love to tuck in a little clock here and there from the Vintage Autumn Basics XVI paper.

I hope my parents enjoy this layout, I’m forever grateful to have them in my life and hope they will see many many more anniversaries.  Thanks so much for stopping by the Maja Design blog today!

‘From the Heart’ Valentine Card

A Maja Heart

I wish you a happy hello and warm welcome to the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy here, with a Valentine project to share with you. I was completely inspired by the cozy, rustic appeal of the ‘Life in the Country’ paper collection. Since my previous projects focused on handmade flowers, I thought I’d change things up with a cheery banner card.

B Maja Heart

The beautiful papers were distressed, layered, and stitched to form the base of the card. You can’t distress just any design paper. Maja Design manufactures the highest quality paper I’ve ever found. The heavier weight allows you to work with it without ripping or tearing, and the double sided pages allow endless flexibility and options. I mist, twist, and even bake this paper when I make flowers. It stands up to everything!

C Maja Heart

There are actually two banners here. The first layer is frilly lace strung through with jute. Die cut hearts and tags complete the second layer.  The banners are anchored by jute bows on either end.

D Maja Heart

With the exception of the tiny rosebuds and buttons, all the embellishments were created using the paper collection.

Maja Design Papers used:

Life in the country

Additional Supplies: Lace, buttons, rosebuds, and jute from my stash; Tim Holtz sentiment stamp, heart and tag dies; Archival Ink, White Cardstock (for base of card), Gesso, Adhesive, Sewing Machine, Thread

I’m thrilled you stopped in for a visit! Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and there’s still time to let your loved one know how special they are with a handmade card. Also, don’t forget to check out this month’s Mood Board Challenge. May your day be filled with all things good and wonderful!
