One Love

Hi there Maja fans, thanks so much for stopping by. Today I have my very first post to share with you as part of the wonderful Maja Design DT. I have created this layout featuring a very old photo of my parents on their wedding day & I have used Maja Design papers all from the “Enjoying Outdoors” collection. I used four different papers in all. They are so beautiful & have a true vintage feel to them. Just perfect for this photo.

For my background I have used the “Time For Reflection” paper. I just love this type of patterned paper for backgrounds. I have also added a little stamping & misting to it as well as some lovely gold micro beads.

I cut these sweet little tags from the “Tags & Journaling Cards” paper. There are  lots of great things on this paper, I will have enough bits to do several projects with.

For the panel down the left side of my layout & also behind the photo I have used the “Feeling Good” paper. It is a lovely vintage paisley design. All the chipboard I have used is from 2Crafty Chipboard. You can see here that I have added some tiny purple micro beads to the chippie roses to tie in with the colour of the papers.

Lastly for my photo matt I used the “Colourful” paper which is also part of the “Enjoying Outdoors” collection.


The beauty of creating with one collection is that it is designed to mix & match & they all compliment each other beautifully.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit to the blog today & that I have inspired you in some small way. See you back here again in a couple of weeks.

Until next time.

Hi my name is Di Garling. I am married to a very patient man, I have two grown up sons, two grandchildren & a little dog. I owned & operated a Scrapbook shop for eight years here in Australia until I recently sold it & retired. I think retirement is the best kept secret. I love it, it gives me lots of time to enjoy my craft. I still teach scrapbooking & cardmaking once or twice a week, so all in all I am as busy as ever & wouldn't have it any other way.
