Good morning, dear Visitors, welcome to Maja Design blog
In my last post I shared two cards I made using our latest release, the absolutely gorgeous Denim&Friends collection. But what I like most about Maja collections is that they’re so versatile! And if you’re wondering whether you could use these papers for some feminine projects, I can tell you: yes, of course! Just take a look:
Don’t they look totally feminine and romantic?
The first card is almost monochromatic, based on the turqouise pattern of the collection. I die-cut a decorative corner and placed the flowre cluster on it, adding some chipboard filigree ornaments and string bows:
I stamped and embossed the sentiment directly on the background paper and then made it pop out by mounting a frame upon it. Then I added some golden drops as a final touch:
I used a similar design for the other card:
I die-cut two corners and put flowers and chipboard swirls on both of them. I stamped and embossed the sentiment as well, but placed it on a strip of vellum and mounted between the corners:
How do you like them?
Here’s the list of supplies:
Maja Design papers:

Other: die: Spellbidners; stamps: Lemonade; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard: Scrapiniec, Miszmasz Papierowy; gold drops, string: my stash

Hello and welcome. Tina O back with you today.
My newest creation, “Picture Perfect” has been designed using the gorgeous Denim and Friends collection. This is such a versatile collection that I decided to do a beachside layout. My favourite thing to create, as we live in one of the most beautiful beach inspired places in the world ! Much of our spare time and holidays are spent at the beachside, therefore I have an endless supply of photographs from these memorable moments.
I have kept my layout very simple using a smaller sized portrait colour photo of my youngest daughter at the beach getting very very muddy. I caught her unawares as you can see from the photo. Denim and Friends has many gorgeously stunning pages that would work perfectly for a beachside background page. Today I decided to use the bs of Fashion to start my layout. I primed it with gesso and did some stenciling using the Dusty Attic Confetti stencil with crackle texture paste. Once it dried a did some colouring with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink and water.
I did lots of layering of chipboards (Dusty Attic) to create a design to work a photo into. These chipboards were dressed in Rust Pastes, Gesso, Distress Inks and Nuvo Embellishment Mousse.
I made some acetate embellishments using 49andMarket’s Sand and Sea stamp set. Other embellishments included a lace motif and beautiful 49andMarket Sea Side Blooms in Sea Breeze colour.
I wanted to emulate the mud that my daughter was digging in. To do this I have used fibres coloured with rust pastes. I dried these and gave them a coating of gesso and then randomly wiped over with Rust Pastes. I also adhered over the fibres with some Art Stones with 3D Gloss Gel. And then coloured them using some Nuvo Mousse.
Well that is all from me today. I hope you have enjoyed your visit here today.
Until next time happy scrapping. x
Its Keren Here with a new layout.
I’ve always loved the brick pattern from the Vintage Summer Basics and so I knew I had to incorporate it into a layout during my DT term.
Below is a photo of my husband and daughter and i thought it was so cute.
I framed the photo by die cutting with a frame out of the background paper. The brick paper hid the area where I had cut from.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design Blog

Hello dear friends! Evgenia Petzer with you. Today I am showing you the mini album, I have actually put it inside of this box and we gave it as a present to my son’s teacher. As she became a grandmother not so long ago. I think she was really nicely surprised and this makes me happy, thats what our hobby is about as well, right?
Ok this is a mini album on tags, that I made using Tim Holtz dies and always use my leftovers from other projects, so you will see a mixture of some collections here, but they most are of pink shades:)
the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, lots of ribbons, pearls and chipboard (Russian brand).
Inside the baby album I have put the images from the Sofiero collection for now, later they will be replaced by th photos of the baby girl.
here is the side view of my album:)I have used bits and pieces of left overs, but mostly its these 2 collections
and these 2 separate sheets that I highly recommend, the balloons are one of my fav for fussy cutting and the Sofiero images are just perfect for so many occasions.
Have a great weekend, ladies!
Today I am up on this lovely blog using my precious Maja Design papers. In my last post I added some questions and I will give you those answers in my August 11th post, the same as I give you my tutorial that day. Sorry for that but I had to deal with some serious personal issues so I have not been scrapbooking as much as I wanted to. Today we will be leaving for our well deserved vacation trip for the next seven day we will be enjoying each others company at a camping ground in the south of our little country we are very excited as you can imagine…, for this post I made a 8×8 layout using only Maja Design papers, dies and a flair.
That sweet picture I got from pinterest oh boy how I love that site…here I used several Maja Design collection such as Vintage Autumn Basics, Vintage Baby, I Wish and Vintage Summer Basics. The centers of my big flowers are made with foamballs that I glued on and dipped in mini prills such a lovely effect that has.
On the background I added some spray’s, stamp and paste. But I also stamped the word sweet on the picture I really do love Gabi her word stamps. What I do when making a layout with just paper and dies….firstly I will cut all the dies that I want to use in different colors then I will make the flowers and their centers and put those together.
Then I it is really easy to make it into one whole piece that you like. At the moment I am totally hooked on the amazing flairs by Cuts2luv that I will use it on almost every single project I make. I wetted my papers to disstress is a little more at the edges I also inked the edges first before I did that.
