Our Happy Place

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

I’m so excited to bring you my first inspiration featuring the latest Tropical Garden collection 🙂 It’s so unique among the Maja papers and yet keeping the same vintage romantic style so characteristic of the brand 🙂 It will be a perfect match for your summer projects, albums or cards even when they’re not about the tropical escape – just take a look at my page:

Since the closest tropical paradise is thoushands of kilometres from where we live, I just used a photo of our local park with chestnut trees blooming 😉 And then tranfsormed it a bit with luscious flower bouquets that I cut out of one of the papers. I added some die-cut leaves too, and paper flowers to make the “jungle” even richer. These elements also helped me to cover the people who invaded my photo 😀

I used cardstock stickers for the title and journaling pieces and attached cotton string to act as lianas:

The signature strips for the collection contain some sentiments ready to use for your cards, but I also included one in my page, cutting off the unnecessary “Wishing you” 🙂

And so as you can see, it’s enough to use your imagination and create a paradise wherever you are!

Here’s what I used for my layout:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Deco Time, Sizzix; stickers: Mambi; flowers: Prima; sequins, string: my stash.

And that’s all for today, have a great creating time!
