Good morning, dear Visitors, welcome to the Maja Design blog 🙂

After a series of projects I created with the latest Celebration collection I return to one of my all-time favourites, Denim & Friends. I just love the colours and patterns of these papers! And here’s the layout I made:

The design of the page is my version of the clean&simple style 😉 I didn’t want to cover the beautiful background paper too much, so I matted the photo with just a couple of tags and a flower cluster mounted on a chipboard clock face:

I also decorated the paper with some stamping and a delicate brick pattern that I added with a stencil and modeling paste. The art clay angel wing adds some lightness to the darker colours:

I die-cut the layout title from the brown Monochromes set matching the collection – I’m so happy Maja started to release the plain papers sets, they save the pain of sacrificing beautiful patterned papers for matting and small elements 😀

Though it’s not the classic clean&simple page, I still like the way it turned out – light and fresh 🙂 What do you think?

And here’s the list of supplies I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: die: Kesi’art; stamp: My Favourite Things; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; stencil: Tim Holtz; chipboard: Wycinanka, button: Lemoncraft; wing mold: Prosvet.


Thank you for visiting today and see you later 🙂

Hello Maja Friends,

today I have a very special project to share with you.

Actually I prepared another creation for my blog post, but last week my Grandmother has died. She was 90 years old. And before hear death I made a huge family album for one of my friend, for her Granny who had an anniversary. They took all her photos , collected during her life and asked me to make a beautiful album and put it all those old pictures , about 200 of them.

So I didn’t plan to share this album , but I have been thinking a lot about the family and old people these days. I have a stong wish to collect all my family phots and especially of my Granny. I need to make an album for us, to keep her alive in our mind.

So that’s why I would like to share some of the pages from the album I’ve made for my friend. Not all of them, but just some . and you know what, Vintage Autumn Basics is a perfect collection if you want to find a perfect match for the pictures taken late 1890ss and teh first half of 20 century.

This is the picture that shows how large is the album . The pages inside are of 30*30 cm ( 12*12 inches)


I didn’t add many of the embellishments, such as flowers or any dimensional one, as I wanted to keep more space for tons of the photos.



But I made several dies and paper strips.


and made some fussy cutting


The pages look simple, but they show the rich and beautiful Maja papers, so vintage, dark and from those days.
