Welcome Maja friends!
I was inspired to create a mixed media layout to a natural garden theme.
I love this time in my garden when the lavender is in bloom and it’s a beautiful characteristic
because the dried lavender flowers keep their scent for an extremely long time.
They are ideal for decoration, potpourris and to fill sachets.
I used the paper sheet ‘Lace’ from the – Denim & Girls – paper collection as background and some cut outs from Vintage Spring Basics collection. Matching the nature theme I added some chipboards from Dusty Attic, some remnants of lace & jute, sisal, dried & artificial lavender flowers and branches to the mixed media layout.

The background was created with some diluted acrylic paints and some Lavinia stamps.
here I used the ‘Juliette Balcony’ – a chipboard from Dusty Attic
in weathered wood optic made with a crackle medium and distress inks
Thanks for your visit!
Wish you a good time!
Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
As I think it’s quite beneficial for both personal and creative development, from time to time I decide to step outside my comfort zone and try something I haven’t tried yet or I don’t like. And today I bring you the result for the latter: a layout featuring my not-so-favourite colour palette of orange paired with purple.
For this self-challenge I used a photo of my goddaughter taken soon after she was born. I used the Little Street Cafe collection that offers some beautiful orange patterns and eased the pain with a bit of purple and kraft brown. The photo has a rustic feel, so I added a tag cut out of burlap paper, but added a gold filigree panel to relate to the title too 🙂
I also added a couple more of tags and a lot of flowers to decorate the photo, as well as a guardian angel to protect the baby 🙂
The title is arranged with cardboard letters that together with a clock button add to the rustic climate:
Apart from the gold panel, there are some opalescent sequins to add glam on the other hand:
Although it’s not my colour combo of voluntary choice, I still like the way the page turned out. What do you think?
Here’s what I used:
Maja Design papers:
Other: dies: Cherry Lynn Designs, Crea-Lies; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; button: Fabrika Dekoru; resin angel: Prima; sequins: my stash.

Good morning everyone! It is Camilla here today, showing you two boxes I made for baptism. One for a girl and the other for a baby boy. I have decorated the outside and the inside of the boxes with papers from the lovely Vintage Baby collection.
I have cut out all the parts using the Vintage Baby, except from the yellow colour, here I have used a sheet from the Vintage Spring Basics.
The dies used are from Magnolia, and a DooHickey Box. The text is from Stempelglede.
As you can see I have used the strip on the bottom of the MajaDesign pattern papers, and placed it around the top of the box (BABY BABY..).
To make the box I have cut out a Kraft Cardstock measuring 27 x 27 cm. Then I have folded it at 9 cm, 9 cm and 9 cm. And cut it out like you see under.
The vanilla bazzill papers are cut out 8,5 cm x 8,5 cm. Then the pattern papers 8 x 8 cm. I have inked the edges and sewed them together.
In the midle of the box I have placed a image that I have painted with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. I have glued it on a strip of plastic, and then bend it a bit at the end and glued it to the bottom of the box. It almost looks like the baby is flying. I have also cut out two clouds with Maja papers, and fastend them the same way.
At the bottom of the box I have also added some Sisal gras, and flowers from WOC.
The baby boy box are made the same way. Also here I have added a strip from the gorgeous Maja papers on the top of the box.
Here is another image, also from Magnolia, which I have coloured with Distresses.
The inside is decorated with a folder with a paper to write a greeting on. And also a pocket to put the gift in (money).
Here is a close up of the image. Also he is “flying”, as he is fasten to a plastic strip.
Text from Stempelglede: Wish you all the best for the future. I just love the cute paper behind the text.
It was really fun making the two boxes.
Thank you so much visiting the MajaDesign blog!
