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:

Hello my dear friends!!!
It’s Mary here with you today and I have a new layout to share with you.
As you may already know, I love finding my photos on Pinterest and this time, while I was searching I found that beautiful photo. So, I choose paper from the ”I Wish” collection and combined it with some beautiful flowers and a few metal embellishments. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.
For my background, I used the ”I Wish For Peace and Joy” paper. First, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. I continued by coloring my page with Lindy’s sprays ”Danny Zuko’s Denim”, ”Green with Envy Green” and ”Grab a Guy Gold”.
I heat embossed all the chipboards with the ”Orbit Olive Gold” Lindy’s embossing powder. As usual all the chipboards I used are 2crafty.
When everything was glued down, I added some copper micro beads and made some splatters with white acrylic artists ink.
That’s all for today, my friends!
Thank you for stopping by!
Here is a paper bag I have decorated with gorgeous papers from the collection I wish.
Only days ago I came back from a holiday in beautiful Croatia! I stayed in a beautiful small village called Cavtat, just outside the city Dubrovnik. I was told that the people in Dubrovnik first settled down in Cavtat, before they had to escape and settled down in Dubrovnik. I guess thats why they built that fantastic city wall -to keep the enemies away. In Croatia it was still Summer, and blue sky every day! Inspite of that I manage to get the flu and sinusitis. Luckily this happened the day before we went home, so I really enjoyed my time there.
But because of all this, I had no new card to show you. This paper bag was published in the magazine Ett Trykk last February. But I have saved it for the blogs when it was time to show some winter/Christmassy inspirations. I have made it to show my style of crafting.
The image from Magnolia is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers.
I have decorated with different types of flowers, cheese cloth, wycinanka, die cuts and pearls.
I have added some Frantage around the image, which is matching the colours of the papers perfectly. The edges are sewed with my sewing machine.
Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!
Hello our blog friends. This time I would like to show you my first Christmas Card. I received the Christmas paper collections a long time ago. Couldn’t wait to use them! Finally I can say – the season for the Christmas cards has started ! 🙂 Here is my first proposal :
I cut out the Santa Claus from the “I wish – Ephemera” paper sheet, then created the background by adding layers one by one. Chipboard, paper flowers, some soft pom-poms and little bells.
Do you feel this magical atmosphere of Christmas here ? I do 🙂 Hope I will inspire some of you to creating the Christmas cards, decorations etc. a little bit earlier. Hope this card is a good sign and I will find time to create more projects like this. Hugs, Paulina
Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the I Wish collection even if we are not in winter. I chose a photo I’ve taken during my trip in Prague of the “Horse” from David Černý: a statue of St Wenceslas riding his dead horse upside-down.
I primed the background with clear gesso. When dry, I added a design with a stencil and clear crackle paste which I let dry naturally.
In the meantime, I die cut a few leaves on a watercolor paper and I colored them with differents Twinkling H2Os. I sprayed some flowers with a gold shimmer.
Next, I colored the design area with different Twinkling H2Os
I cut a few papers to add under the photo and I glued the flowers and leaves.
I added some random stamping. To finish the layout, I added some mica flakes and glass glitters.
