Good morning, dear Visitors to the Maja Design blog 🙂
Today I have a layout to share, featuring a photo of my younger son with his signature look, that is smiling widely 🙂
Since the moment he was born he was a very joyful child, always positive and ready to play. When I look through our family album, on almost all photos he looks like this:
Of course, there are moments of a worse mood, especially now that he is in his early teens, but if I were to characterise him in one word, that would be “smiley” 🙂 And I wanted to document this in my layout.
For my page I used one of our older Christmas collections, I Wish (I always use Christmas papers for non-holiday projects, usually the papers are too beautiful to use them once a year! 🙂 ) The design is very simple: just a couple of banners, some buttons and the title made of chipboard sticker alphabet:
I also added some stamping in the background:
In the flwoer cluster I put a clay face that looks very similar to my boy’s smile 🙂
I do hope my son would always have a reason to smile!
And here’s the list of my supplies:

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Vintage Summer Basics. I worked with a photo I’ve taken during an event at the Château de l’Islette (Loire Valley, France).
Next, I added a second design with a second stencil and paper paste. While the paper paste was still wet I sprinkled two embossing powders that I heated set.
I die cut different leaves in a vellum paper and in a watercolor paper. I embossed them with the same powders.
I cut a few papers to add under the photo and I glued all the embellishments: some sisal, a few flowers whose hearts I’ve changed, some paper clay elements, the leaves and some crystals.
To finish the layout I stamped again with a text stamp.

Hello Maja Friends,
it’s the first day of Summer, I have been waited for it for so long. and Now it’s here and I feel so happy
And today I’ve got to share a very special scrapbook page I made for a newborn babygirl
The mother of the baby is my friend and she asked me to create something, where she could keep the photos ( a few) and some notes for her little princess, so the journalling cards
I made several flaps to keep the photos on one page
Her mother likes the ballet theme, so I added the beaded ballerina into the frame. I added some torn paper layers and made die cutting and punching on the paper too.
I mixed 2 paper collections _ Vintage Summer Basics and Vintage Spring Basics, and I like the final result.

Although it’s still spring, we are already having summer temperatures here
first strawberries in our garden are ripe.
It’s the most wonderful time in the garden, everything blooms and fragrance.
Do you know the wonderful sheet ‘Is always the best’ from the Summertime Collection?
Is one of my favourites, this paper is so beautiful, that you could put it in a picture frame right away to hang it on the wall.
I’m absolutely in love with the delicate designs of the papers,
because the motifs and colours reminds me on roses, strawberries, hikes across field and hallway, bicycle tours and much more.

Thanks for your visit!
Have a wonderful time!
Hello again Sweet Maja fans.
As you could read in yesterdays post of Maja , Maja Design is one of the sponsors of the More Than Words challenge and some of us Maja girls had the honour to make some inspirational
work for the main challenge.
The subject is Memories and in addition you need to uses frames.
Most memories for me are precious, especially this picture of my two kids. My son has autism so not really a cuddler and doesn’t really like physical contact.
I wanted a nice picture from the both of them and he spontaneously gave her a big hug. Although they are grown up now ,this still is one of my favorite pictures.
I used some raisinframes I once bought in our local dollar store, added some embellies and flatback pearls
Tucked some small frames behind the flowers
And a little frame peeping through a tear in the paper with a clock symbolizing how fast time goes by.
Thank you for visiting today
I hope I gave you some inspiration with this Lay out, Don’t forget to drop by tomorrow for some new gorgeous work of one of the other Maja Girls.
the papers I used are from the vintage summer basics, flowers from Wild orchid crafts and the frames come from the local dollarstore.
