Crea Diem was one of the Maja Design collections that I hardly dared to cut into, just because it is so pretty. I really love the elegant and timeless designs and the beautiful colours in these papers. This week I decided to just do it and use these wonderful papers to create a lay-out about my niece. On this lay-out I wanted to record my biggest wish: becoming a mom some day. More than everything else in the world, I would love to have children of my own in the future. Seeing my nieces grow up from these cute little babies into happy toddlers and then smart children, just makes my heart sing!
The first thing I did to make this lay-out, was cutting out the clock pattern from the “Den oersättliga tiden” sheet. I wanted it to be a real eye-catcher on my lay-out and kind of built the rest of my lay-out around it. Also I cut out some butterflies from the Vintage Spring Basics “6th of May” sheet. I spread them over my lay-out, in such way that it looks as if they are flying to the top of my lay-out. In the right upper corner I created a cluster with some flourishes, a frame, two clocks and – once again – my favourite fussy cut butterflies. A little flower cluster and some cut out twigs (from the “Den oersättliga tiden” sheet made the finishing touch on my page. Supply list:
