Hello, friends! I hope you’re enjoying a lovely day. It’s Nancy, and I’m thrilled to welcome you to the Maja Design Blog. I’m relishing the beautiful weather and staying busy as ever in my craft room with my Easter preparations. I have a new card to share featuring two spring elements, Easter eggs and handmade flowers.

Two of my favorite Maja Design collections, Vintage Autumn Basics and Vintage Summer Basics, are used in the creation of this card. As usual, the paper is distressed, layered and stitched to form a base. One of the many things I adore about Maja Design paper is that it’s strong and behaves much like fabric when I’m working with it. As you can see, I really put it to the test and it holds up every time.

You’ll find a blooming rose and a wildflower gracing my little garden. If you visit my blog you’ll find tutorials for both styles of flowers as well as the Easter egg. A die cut flourish, ribbon and cheesecloth add a soft touch.

Design paper is border punched and layered to anchor the egg and florals. A die cut Spellbinder’s frame is tucked in behind the egg.

Hi there! Here I am with an easel card. I have used some lovely papers from the Vintage Summer Basics collection. I wanted to give it a little hint of retro and vintage look. I hope you like it!


I have painted two girls from Magnolia that might be leaving or they are saying goodbye to someone close to them. As the animal lover I am, I had to have a cute dog in the scene too.


I made a propell with dies from Magnolia. All dies used are from the Vintage box, third edition.


The postcard from Paris, is cut out from the pattern paper called Minnen.


For this suitcase I have used pattern papers from the Vintage Summer Basics collecton and dies from the Vintagebox third edition.


Here are the paper used:

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog!

Just for them

I’ve worked with the Vintage Summer Basics collection. Yellow-orange and burgundy for her, aqua for him.

I cut a few papers that I glued together. I die-cut the smallest to add some interest.

I glued some sisal and splattered the card with a mix of glitter, gel medium, and water.

I die-cut a few leaves in a watercolor paper that I colored with Twinkling H2Os as well as the chipboards.

Hi Everyone, Its Keren Here with a new layout for the Maja Design Blog using one of my all time favourite collections Vintage Summer Basics.

I love going to the beach and as a family that’s our favourite place to go on vacation. This picture of my kids running on the sand was taken during our last vacation in Mexico. I wanted to create movement on my layout and so I stencilled across the page using white gesso.  Then I sprayed with Prima’s blue Color Bloom sprays summer sky and glistening waves, to mimic the colour of the ocean.

I mounted the photo on small pieces of Maja Design papers and then framed the photo in a Blue Fern Studios chipboard frame which was lightly daubed in white gesso. Then I glued lots of sequence and textured stones around the  frame to add lots of texture to the background and make it look like an ocean. Sequins are from “Dress my Craft” and the art stones are Prima Finnabair.

Here you can se the texture and the Vintage Summer basics papers underneath the photo.

I'm Keren Tamir a self taught scrapbooker, mixed media artist and designer. Since I was a child, I always loved art. I used to doodle on my notebooks and on anything I could get my hands on. ​ Fourteen years ago I discovered scrapbooking and fell in love with it. One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. Scrapbooking opened a creative door to something that I had longtime forgotten I'd loved. It gave me peace of heart and mind. visit my blog for more inspiration:
