I am so excited and happy to get to share something beautiful! My sweet daughter’s wedding!

We filled this room with Paper, Pearls, and Lace!

Who knew such a beautiful display could be made from paper….

Although, not just any paper could pull off such a gorgeous spread. It took around 200 sheets of beautiful Maja paper mixed with a few others to pull off this massive creation…. and about 4 months of my time. Yep, I made every single one of those layered pinwheel flowers. I must say, it was worth every single minute. Many, many thanks to Maja’s Marie and Camilla for sending such a generous box to make this project possible!

We carried the paper theme through out the entire reception,

which took place in a warehouse style, rustic, shabby art studio.

We filled the walls with large engagement photos and strung a handmade paper banner over the gift table…

The tables were embellished with gold candle sticks topped with handmade pearl balls,

fabric and paper flower balls, along with altered stacks of books and strings of pearls…

Hello dear friends! Its Evgenia Petzer with you today.

Yes, you read it write- some winter cards in the end of summer…

Sometimes it just itches for me to start creating something certain, this time I just needed to create some christmas cards. And The Vintage Winter is one of the oldest, but still my favourite winter Maja collections. So I pulled the paper pad from this collection and made two these cards just for fun.


Lots of layers n both of the cards, lots of little details, some stitching with contrast color cotton thread…

Though the second card is exactly from the same collection its in another color scheme

One of my favorite winter/christmas collections of all the times:

To create both of these cards I have used the paper pad of this collection.

Have a lovely sunny weekend,

Free Your Mind

Good morning, Maja friends, welcome to the blog today!

For this post I have made a layout inspired by one of the older CSI challenges – and it was mainly because of the colour palette I believe I’d never used before 🙂


Intrigued by the combination of ecru, grey, dark rust and brown I thought it might make a nice boy layout. I used papers from two different collections and as always it turned out they work together pretty well 🙂 I first stamped some newspaper print stamp on the Nyhavn background paper, and then layered pieces from the Vintage Winter collection:


I love adding some real vintage elements to my pages: here’s an old clock face:


Following the instructions for the challenge, I added the title behind bars 😉 I chose to use stickers to form a sentence: Free your mind.


For the journaling, I used two stamps to refer to the title and stamped them on scraps of papers:


And finally I added the flower cluster and a beautiful metal birdcage:


I really like the way this page turned out! And I like the dimension in it – though it makes it so difficult to store such layouts… But still, it’s worth the inconvenience 😉


I think I might never have used such a colour combo if not by inspiration, and that’s why I like to enter challenges sometimes – including Maja Design Moodboard Challenges! (btw, a new one has just started, see the post below and join in the fun!).

And here’s what I used for my layout:

Other: flowers, leaves, birdcage: Prima; stamps: Darkroom Door, Prima, Inkadinkado; washi tape, game spinner: Tim Holtz; stickers: October Afternoon; chipboard, metal branch, clock face: my stash.


See you later!

Hello Sweeties
Today, I’m up on Maja Design with a winter page.

Winter_PB(Photo de Richard Loader) 

I began to cover the background page with clear gesso. When dry, I did some random stamping and added black bister. To prevent the bister from reacting afterward, I sprayed a fixative on the whole page before continuing.


I added more colors to the background with differents Twinkling H2Os. With a stencil and white crackle paste, I added also a design, which I covered with white Art Sugar while the paste was still wet.


I colored the die-cut leaves and branches with Twinkling H2Os too.


I distressed the papers under the photo and lightly inked the edges.


I used 3D Matte Gel to glue all the elements to the background.

Happy New Year Everyone <3

Today I thought I would make a Top 10 list of my favorite projects made with Maja Design <3

Maja Design is my favorite when it comes to patterned paper, and to be able to create projects with these lovely sheets are indescribable. It seems that the sheets are made to my projects, because they always fit into what I make.

Therfore , I think it’s  appropriate that I make a Top 10 list of my favorite projects from 2015, made with Maja Design <3


The Baby Vintage Playground – 10

This is a box that I made April last year. The box is made with paper from the Collection The Vintage Baby. The airplane, the trees, small boxes and the train are made without tutorial and the idea I’ve gotten from the name of the Collection and therefore it became a playground for a girl or a boy <3


The Vintage Travel Boxes – 09

This set of boxes I mase to one Norwegian Magazine called Ett Trykk, This ia a Scrapbooking Magazine and I was askes to be a Guest Artist last year.

The boxes are originally tin cans that I have decorated with paper from the Collection called The Vintage Spring Basics. The ddetails I have chosen to use are metal in bronze color. The blue and the dark details are probably way I love these boxes so much.


The Vintage Baby Gift Boxes – 08

These boxes are one result afther one bad brakeup betwieen me and my X boyfriend afther 3 years. For me to droen myself in this wonderful hobby when I have it tough is indescribable. I close the feelings out and concentrate one one thing and that is to do what i Love the most, papercrafting. These boxes took a total of 4 days to create, a box for eatch day.


A Lovely Christening Present – 07

This is also a project that I designed for Ett Trykk, but it is also one project that I have put a lot of thought and love into. The baby mobile with the small planes I consider as one of the finest things that I have made and it is actually hangs in one corner in my beedrom. One of my wishes is that I’m so lucky that I can give this gift to my baby one day <3 The projects is made from paper from The Vintage Baby and Nyhavn.


The Frozen Playground – 06

The Frozen Playground is one project that is made with paper from the Vintage Frost Basics. There is one project that I’ve thought for a long time, I created The Baby Vintage Playground, it was time for a playground for the Kids too. This was really fun to make, only to see the toys were made and got a place on the project.


The Cabinet of the Treasure – 05

Last Year, in the Autumn, Maja Design come with a LOVELY collection called Enjoying Outdoors. This is one of my favorites Collections and this closet here was the first project I used these sheets on. The cabinet was originally in pink, but with the sheets and the details, I give it a new life. The cabinet was also a Christmas gift to my little sister Jeanette, so she can use it for jewelery <3


A True LOVE Story in a Music Box – 04

This is one project that is all abute LOVE and that is probably whay it’s on my list <3 I love this box and wat it symbolizes <3 THe idea comes from a story written by a Danish writer named H.C. Andersen and the storry called The Tin Soldier. The sheets I have used are from two different collections, Walking in the Forrest and Vintage Autumn Basics.


The Silver Deer – 03

The project with The Silver Deer is for me one magical project <3 It is full of glitter and snow. The entire project has a frosted fell to it and a touch of romance. The idea of this box were the basis of the latest collection by Maja Design, Home for the Holidays. The deer that are on some of the sheets I have tried to recreate by placing a silver deer on the top.


My Winter Wonderland – 02

My winter paradise in te woods covered with snow and glitter are one of the projects that I’m most pleased with. Sitting creating a projectbased on an idea and withoute tutorial is magical. When I made this, I used the blue paper from the Vintage Winter collection.


My Christmas Present for Myself – 01

But the project that I put highest on my list is the Christmas Cards I handed out before Christmas. This is one project that I appreciate very highly and I am so thankfoul that I got the pssibility to share out 86 homemade cards to the elderly in nursing homes in my homeplase Gildeskål.


Now you have seen and read abute my Top 10 List with Maja Design projects from 2015 <3 This was no easy list for me to make, but I’m already looking forward to the continuing with Maja Design Projects in the coming year <3

I’m so excited abute how they are going to be, for rigth now, I have no idea where my ideas can take me away to.
