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

Our most recently released collection is called Everyday Life, but it is just perfect to keep those special moments too! Here’s a page that I made preserving memories of our first sailing trip:

I chose the beautiful Make Memories sheet for the background and put a wide panel across the middle. Then I added torn strips of papers and tucked chipboard pieces and sequins in between to get a more dimensional effect.

I also applied marine-themed stencil patterns upon the middle panel using two colours of structural paste:

Upon that background I placed the photo, decroating it with flowers, linen knots, colour-stained cheesecloth and artclay anchor painted with acrylic paints:

 

I arranged the title using cut-out words:

 

Although the layout has many layers and embellishments, it’s still flat enough to be framed or stored in an album:

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Creafts, Blue Fern Studios; knots, anchor, mists: Prima Marketing; stencils, chipboard: Agateria; sequins: my stash.

 

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later!

 

You Are So Special

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

Spring seems to have settled for good, with the sun appearing for longer, birds chirping and flowers starting to bloom. Therefore I had no choice but to bring you a cheerful layout today 🙂

Doesn’t she look like the lady spring herself?

I made the layout using the Miles Apart collection, which is just perfect for delicate, girly projects due to a selection of soft pinks nad greens and flowery patterns. I layered several pieces of various papers, added hand cut tags, flower clusters and some embellishments.

I arranged the title with sticker alphabet letters and die-cut words:

The clear gems I used to finish off the page and the glitter words of the title glimmer beautifully against the light, adding to the lightness of the page:

I really like the way it turned out, delicate and joyful like the sunny spring day 🙂

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Kesi’Art; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; clock face: Maya Road; sticker alphas: October Afternoon; butterfly: UHK Gallery; wing: my stash.

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and have a Happy Easter!

Hello Sweet Maja fans,

Lenet here and today I bring you this  layout made with the beautiful papers of the tropical garden collection.

 

For this layout I did some fussy cutting , I cut both the  birds out of the Cockatoo sheet .

 

And I cut some flowers from the  Exotic plants sheet to tuck them behind  the birds and made a cluster with them in the right uppercorner of the picture.

The purple bird you see here Is cut out of the diecuts sheet.

 

The chippies I used are from  Scrapaholics And I colored them with  tim Holtz distress embossing powder.

I hope you like this layout I made for you.

Thank you for visiting and hope to see you back.

Goodmorning lovely Maja Designs fans,

I am so sorry for my absence lately, life is just so extremely busy. Abbey is growing up so fast and Kevin just turned seventeen last month. I am still busy creating and loving everything about it but making blog posts takes a lot of time which is precious to me. So I will try to keep up with them from now on, hopefully all goes well with you all and you are not to dissapointed in me.

Loving These Moments With You: 

I wrinkled my papers to give it more depth & demension.
I used five different sheets from the “Bohemian Harmony”collection and layered them. Then I added some stamps & a stencil by Finnabair. For this layout I used several gorgeous chippies from 2Crafty Chipboard {my new dt which I am so excited about} I all used white gesso on them. The word “shine” I just left white, and the frame had some leafy protrusions on it that I cut off and tucked in my flower clusters {and left them white also}.
I used two frames on this layout {I have a weakness for them}
The 6″Fine Heart Leaf Frame I painted in two colors to match my papers then I added a piece of paper behind it so I could add the phrase. The frame round my picture was treated with waxes {ochre & rusty brown} I also cut out a couple of flower clusters from different sheets and added them in my flower clusters & such.
On the pieces that I painted green I also added some shimmer spray to make it more blend into my layout.
I used a picture of our darling daughter Abbey last fall then I cut her out of a second picture I printed and layered it on top of the other one. For this layout I used  jute cord and cheese cloth behind my flowers and also visible on my layout.
Maja Design papers used:
Bohemian Harmony collection, Rustic flowers, Enjoy today, Feel alive, Be humble and Be honest-bs.

Thank you so much for your visit today. And I sure hope that I have inspired you to take out your lovely Maja Design papers and create and have fun while doing so. Have a blessed & sunny weekend!

Hugs

Enjoy Today

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

Since my last post the world has changed… With the war being right behind the borders of my country, it’s obvious we feel shocked, anxious, worried and uncertain. But at the same time the amount of goodness and solidarity towards attacked people is amazing, so I do believe there is still hope for humanity! Also, dire times like these make us so aware of the fact how short life is and how important is to appreciate and enjoy every little moment! And that’s what my layout I’m sharing today is about:

I made the layout the illustrate the importance of relations between people, and the fact that how we behave towards others is what defines us as human beings, and in the end it’s all we have. No money can buy the feeling of being loved and cared for.

I used the Bohemian Harmony collection as it is just perfect to express the above! Just take a look at those words printed in the background, so true and accurate:

For my title and journaling I used expressions printed on signature strips:

The I completed my design with hand-cut tags, flowers and metal embellishments:

I really hope the world would finally turn right and we all would go back to normal! So that our children can enjoy every single moment of their lives.

Here’s what I used for my page:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; metal embellishments: Mitform; sequins: my stash.
