Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the Sofiero paper collection. I chose a photo of my family: my grandmother, my father, my aunt and unfortunately I’m not sure who the other two are.
I primed the background with clear gesso. While it was drying, I cut a few papers from the Vintage Romance 6×6 pad that I glued on the background. Then I added a thin layer of white gesso.
I added a design with a stencil and different pastes: clear crackle, white crackle, and white stone. When dry, I added some color with Iris Potion Sparks paint that I watered down.
I die-cut some leaves in a watercolor paper. I colored the vine with Raven Sparks and the leaves with Twinkling H2Os. Then I covered them with the Antique Brillance Amethyst Magic. I added some wax on the background too to add a vintage look.
I colored some flowers with a spray made of Primary Element and water. Before gluing all the embellishments, I added some random stamping with an Archival ink and with the Raven Sparks. I added a little bird house that I colored with the wax too.
To finish the layout I added some micro beads.

Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer here with you today and I wanted to share with you two beautiful envelopes in which you can gift either money or a gift card. Our-days these type or presents seem to be more appropriate in some occasions. But its always nice to present something beautifully.
I have some special feelings for Ska vi ta en Fika collection, I just love those purple/lavender shades and can play with it for long time.and some close ups: lots of different flowers, laces and pearlsThe envelopes are “closed” with this die cut laceOnce again, I have used Ska vi ta en Fika:
Have a lovely weekend,
Good morning, Maja Design friends, welcome to the blog today
With November coming to an end, I think it’s time to think of Christmas presents, especially if you intend making them yourselves. And so today I have a girly diary to share.
As the little lady, who will be writing her secrets in this notebook, likes purples, I chose to work with the Ska Vi Ta En Fika? collection with a bit of the Vintage Spring Basics set, which offered both cold and warm shades of purple, paired with browns and greens too. And so I adapted the same palette for the diary. I layered some papers on the front cover:
…added a ribbon bow and a butterfly charm on the wire:
…and decorated the front with a stamped and hand-coloured image:
On the inner cover, I added the girl’s monogram in a decorative heart on the background of the butterfly and plaid patterns:
There’s also a bonus stamped image at the back of the diary:
…and a little envelope to put in special secrets
I hope the girl would like her secret diary
And here’s what I used to make it:
Papers: Ska Vi Ta En Fika?: Nybakat, Chaite, Mandelkaka, Lejas café; Vintage Spring Basics: 11th of April BS, 9th of April BS. Other: stamps: Magnolia, Basic Grey; ribbon, twine: Rayher, charm, plate: my stash.
Have you started making your Christmas gifts yet?
Hello Maja Friends, it’s Elena here today.a
Fall has come and I feel the necessity for the mature bright and dark colors. That’s why I made a couple of cards inspired by the season.
I used Fika collection – so cozy and sweet.
Purple , chocolate and green hues remind me about fogs, harvest and Indian summer.
I added some crochet lace and canvas ribbon , just a few flowers.
However to make it look more cozy I made stitching on paper layers.
So when it is chilling outside, it’s a good chance to invite your friend for a cup of tea or coffee.
