Hello Maja fans!

I wish you all a very happy New Year full of health, love and hapiness. Mary with you today to share my inspiration for January.

When I found that beautiful photo on Pinterest, I wanted to scrap it and finally I made a soft wintery layout in grey and teal colors, with lots of flowers, laces and chipboards. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I combined two paper collections, the ”Nyhavn” and the ”Vintage Summer Basics”. I choose the ”Sitting at the Dock” paper from the ”Nyhavn” collection for my background paper. Then, I added some layers with the ”Eating Out” paper from the same collection and the ”1934” from the ”Vintage Summer Basics”.

First, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with snowflake paste and a stencil and then I used graphite paste with a second stencil to give more contrast on my page. I also made some stamping here and there. I continued by coloring my page with the sparks ”Mermaid Sparkle” acrylic paint. 

I painted the flourish chipboards with the metallique ”Silver Spoon” acrylic paint and the chipboard title with the sparks ”Mermaid Sparkle” acrylic paint. Then, I gently rubbed them with the ”Vintage Gold” wax. The chipboards I used, are from Dusty Attic.

When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and glitter. I also made some splatters with white gesso diluted with some water.

That’s all for today, my friends!

Thank you for stopping by!

Hello dear Maja fans,

This is Kavitha here with my first post, I am so happy and honored to be a part of this wonderful team.

I made a soft and girly layout with Vintage summer basics. I stenciled some floral design with modelling paste on to the background.For layering I added some papers from Vintage summer basics and Vintage spring basics collection.

I added lots of laces for the soft and feminine look.Behind the photo i added some chipboard pieces which i painted with white gesso and heat embossed with embossing powders

I finished it off with some Prima flowers,chipboard butterflies and white splatters.

Hello, dear friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful beginning to the New Year! It’s Nancy here, with the blessing of being with you on the blog today. I’m so happy you’ve stopped in for a visit.

With Christmas cards behind me for the season, I’m happily moving on to this card for my dear friend’s birthday in one of my favorite collections; Maja Design’s Vintage Summer Basics.

The beautiful papers absolutely work magic in bringing this festive rose garden to life. The roses, stamped sentiment, and curly confetti are handmade from design paper. The only portion of this project that is not made with Maja Design paper is the twine and ribbon.

Below is a peek at the inside of the card, where a personal sentiment can be written. This piece is made to be removable, so a photo can be inserted at a later time if desired.

Hi everyone! I am back with a shaker card today. I am making some videos on You Tube for Magnolia, and this is my final product. In the last video I show how to make a shaker card, and how I made this card. It is on the Magnolia channel today. I have used some gorgeous Maja papers for my project.


I thought this collection would fit my project perfectly!


I have used Distress Inks, re-inkers and Markers for the image.


Here you see the shaker card, which is filled with glitter.

Some more details. The cute flowers are from Petaloo.


I think the flowers match the papers so well.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

With love,

Hello our blog friends. Today I would like to show you my first calendar for 2018. This one will be use mostly at home, that’s why I could add a little bit more of volume. Here it is :
