Enjoying my shoes..

Welcome to the Maja blog today..!

My absolute favorite among the Maja collections has became one of the latest ones – Enjoying Outdoors. I think it’s a really wonderful collection with just the right colours for my taste. I think it’s almost like a combine of Ska Vi Ta En Fika? and Walking in the Forest – two of our most popular collections, so maybe it’s no wonder that I completely have fallen in love with this one.. I would really like to know which of our collections that is your personal favorite? Please tell me in the comment field. 🙂 Who knows, maybe you’ll get the chance to receive some samples from your favorite collection.. 😉


This an altered shoe I made with papers from Enjoying Outdoors. I have a thing for shoes, I always had – so making this project was so much fun! I just love shoes, wearing them and buying new ones – and my husband is crazy with me and really can’t understand my everlasting crush for new ones – even though my stash is already full.. I guess it’s a guy thing, right – because you’ll understand? 😉

I wanted to keep this project quite simple and clean with not to much accessories taking over. First I crumpled and wet the papers and then dried them with an iron, to make it more easy to work with.

Now, I only need to do another one, just like this.. Or maybe I just go with a new colour on the next one, it’s more fun I think. It’s not like I ever is going to wear this shoes anyway so.. 😛 They will have their special place on my shelf.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Hope you’ve enjoyed this.

See you soon!

  • Camilla, I’d definitely buy a pair (if they came in my size!) My favorite line is Ska Vi Ta En Fika. Although I own most of it, I’ve just, this month contacted every USA retailer and was able to fill in my collection. I’ve just used the Enjoying the Outdoors as well. I love Maja Designs and I am using it solely now. I’ve mostly made mini albums in my 3 years of scrapbooking but have spent hours (literally hours) pouring over your blog and getting inspired to do layouts.

    I’ve thought of a line I think would be beautiful for Maja Designs…….how about a line called “Grandmas Quilts” or something like that. But the papers would be colors in loved and worn quilts – soft and heartwarming – vintage to be sure.

    I’m brand new to this subscription but have been a fan for awhile.

      Dear Carol,
      Thank you for sharing! 🙂 Maybe I’ll come back to you then, if I ever decide to go with a new career as a shoe designer?! 😀

      I’m so glad to hear that you love our papers and get inspired by our blog. Mission completed. 😉

      Oh, that sounds soo nice..! I love the idea. Thank YOU for the inspiration.

    Forgot to say, I love Sofiero and Coffee in tbe Arbor. They are the only collections I have so far. The Enjoying Outdoors appeals to me, also.
