Hi Maja fans!

Today I’m up on the Maja Design blog and I have for you a layout created with the limited edition Nyhavn collection. We’ve seen a lot of the new Summer Crush last month so I thought I would like to feature a slightly older collection but just as perfect for your summertime adventures.


I really love the color palette in this collection – it’s warm and comforting, yet fun and outdoorsy at the same time. So I chose this photo of Hubby and Eldest playing on the tyre swing, the two of them spending some precious time together. Later I realised, even the colors from the photo match the papers too.

More details in the close-ups:


My floral cluster on top of my paper layers. You can see lots of background work – stenciling, painting with Ayeeda matt paints, splattering, stamping and heat embossing to create resist. My chipboard was also colored very lightly with gelato so that it blends nicely into the embellishments, allowing the colors from the background and papers to stand out.


Another mini cluster where you can see the gorgeous designs on the Nyhavn papers. I’ve also layered the info strips and used those as subtitles. The sentiments were just perfect for the moment I have captured.


My balancing cluster. The leaves were die cut and tucked under the flowers and all to create a nice little bouquet.

Maja Design papers used:


Strolling along the canal, Romantic lunch, The sunny side, A dockside in bloom, Old townhouses, Heritage harbour

Other supplies:

Paints and mists: 13@rts
Chipboards: Blue Fern Studios
Stencil and embellishments: Prima Marketing Inc

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for dropping by!
