Good morning to you, dear Visitors, welcome to the Maja Design blog!

Have you ordered our latest release, the Denim & Friends collection? If not, then hurry up, it’s simply gorgeous! One of my favourite collections so far! Sooo perfect for masculine projects!

And so, when I stopped smelling and touching ๐Ÿ˜‰ , I began cutting and I can’t stop! And I created this layout:


I took the beautiful hemisphere map for the background, matted my photo with various papers and added some paper straws for dimension:


…the flower cluster with a metal charm:


…and made my title using foam metallic gold sticker letters. I also hand-cut some tags and added pieces of signature strips from papers – I love including them in my projects ๐Ÿ™‚


I really like the way it turned out, but I had so much fun working with this collection I couldn’t just stop after one layout ๐Ÿ˜‰ And so I made another one:


For a change, I used the other hemisphere for the background ๐Ÿ˜€ And started to embellish the photo. I had this “love key” for ages and finally the time has come to use it ๐Ÿ™‚


There’s also the flower cluster with tags and signature strips:


…and a somewhat longish title ๐Ÿ˜‰ using foam letters. A tip for you: if you want your small letters pop out of the patterned background, trace them around with a fine pen ๐Ÿ™‚


It may be a little difficult to notice, as the two maps are on two sides of the same paper – but if you have two of them you’ll see the two hemispheres match perfectly! And soooo….I combined my two layouts to make my first double page ever! ๐Ÿ™‚


What do you think? I really like the way the two pages go together ๐Ÿ™‚

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Prima, wild Orchid Crafts; letters: American Crafts, Prima; glitter ink: 13@rts; charms, paper straws: my stash


As I said, I can’t stop cutting these beautiful papers, so join me soon for more inspiration with Denim&Friends ๐Ÿ™‚
