Hello everyone.

I have a tag to share with you.


I used the gorgeous Summertime collection. I love the blue and the florals. it has been a bit gloomy here in Nevada where I live so I hope the sun comes out soon. I cut out some of the florals from the paper and I added them behind the tags from the collection.


I used some sprays to create splatters on the tag and finished the tag with some Prima flowers.

Here is a short video of how I created the tag.

Here is a couple more detailed photos

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.

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:

Hi all wonderful Maja-fans!  I went to a birthday party last weekend, and can you belive…?? The lady of honor became 95 years old. An she is still living in her own house. I wanted to make her a nice card, and here it is. I have used three pattern papers from the gorgeous collecton Summertime.


I have tried to paint the image in the same colours as in the papers. The image is from Stempelglede and the collection Vintage garden. I have coloured it with Distress Ink, re-inkers. For the red colour I have used Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany and Black Soot. I have also added Crackle Accents on some of the flowers.


The small flowers are punched out from a Retro flower punch, small. I have inked the edges with Distress pad, Walnut Stain. and added Stickles, Star Dust. In the middel I have added Licquid pearls.


From another angle.


The numbers are cut out from a Sizzix die, and I have added Fran-tage, Shabby White. I have also added Fran-tage around the image, on the edges.


Some birthday tags and the tassels made with  Magnolia DooHickey dies (vol 5).


I have put some Sisal grass behind the flowers.


Here comes the list of the gorgeous papers used:

painted some of the chipboard with clear crackle varnish, once the crackle dried, I rubbed on denim & brown using a ink pad…


I made a bow out of cheese cloth, some flowers out of the collection, & used Prills as the flower centers, ends of seagrass, & on the chicken wire…


I also used a doily in the layers….
