Kavitha here today to share my new layout.This time i made a dark/moody yet girly layout using gorgeous Fika collection,i just love the purple tones of this collection.
I have used three papers from the collection,one dark,one medium and one light to balance the colors,and used some fussy cut flowers from one of the papers.
To create the background i mixed gel medium,purple metallic paint & glitter and applied it through stencils.I have used lots of chipobard pieces and paper layers to construct my design.
All the chipboard pieces are colored with metallic paint and then heat embossed using lindy’s embossing powders.I even colored some flowers to match the color palette as i dint have any in my stash
As finishing touch i added some copper micro beads and sprinkled some glitter.
Maja papers used: Fika : Hemgjord , Blommor pa bordet , Cheesecake BS
Thank you for stopping by.
Today a new layout as memory on wonderful, relaxed days by the sea. It’s very hot here and I wish I could be there now. So it was a pleasure for me to think on the refreshing sea breeze, clear air and restful moments and tranquillity.
I was inspired from the wonderful blue shade from the paper sheet 1934 (Vintage Summer Basics), the right colour and background and absolutely suitable to my photo from our sunshine dog ‘Filou’. Then I cut out two children (Playing at the beach) and used paper sheet ‘Casual’ for cutting dies. Three various collection, but the colours are always tone in and can be wonderfully combined.
Denim and Friends ‘Casual’
Summertime ‘Playing at the beach’
Vintage Summer ‘1934bs’
I also used some chipboards (Scrap FX, Blue Fern Studios) cutting dies (Joy Craft), background stamps(49 and Market) and very importantly for me shells, a natural starfish, baltic sea sand and a wooden seahorse. I love it to use such natural products
then it feels like you’re there yourself.
My teamies at Maja Design have come up with many
inspiring and different versions for all the amazing paper collections.
Please have a look and feel you inspired to create your own crafting projects
We are looking forward to see your new creations!
Thanks for your visit !
Enjoy your day!
Good morning, dear Visitors to the Maja Design blog 🙂
Today I have a layout to share, featuring a photo of my younger son with his signature look, that is smiling widely 🙂
Since the moment he was born he was a very joyful child, always positive and ready to play. When I look through our family album, on almost all photos he looks like this:
Of course, there are moments of a worse mood, especially now that he is in his early teens, but if I were to characterise him in one word, that would be “smiley” 🙂 And I wanted to document this in my layout.
For my page I used one of our older Christmas collections, I Wish (I always use Christmas papers for non-holiday projects, usually the papers are too beautiful to use them once a year! 🙂 ) The design is very simple: just a couple of banners, some buttons and the title made of chipboard sticker alphabet:
I also added some stamping in the background:
In the flwoer cluster I put a clay face that looks very similar to my boy’s smile 🙂
I do hope my son would always have a reason to smile!
And here’s the list of my supplies:
Maja Design papers:

Although it’s still spring, we are already having summer temperatures here
first strawberries in our garden are ripe.
It’s the most wonderful time in the garden, everything blooms and fragrance.
Do you know the wonderful sheet ‘Is always the best’ from the Summertime Collection?
Is one of my favourites, this paper is so beautiful, that you could put it in a picture frame right away to hang it on the wall.
I’m absolutely in love with the delicate designs of the papers,
because the motifs and colours reminds me on roses, strawberries, hikes across field and hallway, bicycle tours and much more.

Have a wonderful time!
Hello again Sweet Maja fans.
As you could read in yesterdays post of Maja , Maja Design is one of the sponsors of the More Than Words challenge and some of us Maja girls had the honour to make some inspirational
work for the main challenge.
The subject is Memories and in addition you need to uses frames.
Most memories for me are precious, especially this picture of my two kids. My son has autism so not really a cuddler and doesn’t really like physical contact.
I wanted a nice picture from the both of them and he spontaneously gave her a big hug. Although they are grown up now ,this still is one of my favorite pictures.
I used some raisinframes I once bought in our local dollar store, added some embellies and flatback pearls
Tucked some small frames behind the flowers
And a little frame peeping through a tear in the paper with a clock symbolizing how fast time goes by.
Thank you for visiting today
I hope I gave you some inspiration with this Lay out, Don’t forget to drop by tomorrow for some new gorgeous work of one of the other Maja Girls.
the papers I used are from the vintage summer basics, flowers from Wild orchid crafts and the frames come from the local dollarstore.
