The Unforgetable Moments of Childhood Magic

Goodmorning amazing Maja Design Fans,

I am so happy that you find the time to visit our blog today, here in The Netherlands they just decided to have a hard lockdown due covid-19, I personally think that it’s way to late but who am I right? Luckily in my line of work {optician} we can still be open and help the people who need to see but for my husband it’s a whole other story but he can still go to work but we don’t know for how long. Well enough of the covid-19… I’d like to show you another layout that I made with two gorgeous collections “Celebration”& “Nyhavn”

This was a fun and easy page to make also because I don’t have many pictures with snow in it….only when Kevin was a cute little boy. For the bottom part of my layout I used the Nyhavn sheet called sitting at the dock which is one of my all time favorites and for the upper part I used the ephemera sheet of Celebration. At that first sheet I used a awesome winter background stamp by studio light with some stazon jet black ink I stamped randomly, then for the upper part I used a stencil by the dusty attic of stars.

The frame around the picture is also by the dusty attic as is the word childhood. With this layout I will be entering two challenges one is a moodboard of winter and the other one is of childhood & to add some gold. The leaves you see on my layout are dies by cheery lynn designs which I cut out from the Maja Designs monochromes and then treated with lindy’s stamp gang sprays.

I added different golden elements on my layout as glitter glass, gold sprays & finnabair wax on the art pebbles as the finishing touch I added some true snow by arleene’s and some butterflies of the coffee in the arbour collection. I also added some flatbackpearls on the frame.

Maja Design papers used: Celebration Ephemera bs, Nyhavn sitting at the dock bs, Mono White Sand bs of the sofiero & Coffee in the Arbour butterflies are free.


Thank you so much for being here with us today I hope you like my work… and we would love it if you share your work with us at the Maja Design Facebookpage …..stay safe & healthy…… Love

  • Aahhhhww thank you so much Julie have a wonderful Christmas and a blessed new year hugs 💜

  • Such a beautiful layout here Amy, and yes such a rare picture to get with soo much snow. It´s not many years anymore, that we get this much snow, that we get the chance to actually take some of these pictures of our kids. I know, I´m NOT much for snow, but must admit, it really looks amazing and the kids just love it, and it brings up some truly amazing pictures. You hit the head of the nail on this one and these papers are just absolut perfect for this, and I LOVE all your little details, that keeps showing every time I look at your layouts. Wonderful work as always, keep it comming dear.
    Have a wonderful week ahead here and enjoy the Holidaytime off soon and just enjoy being a family. Hope everyone inhere is having a great time and enjoying the Holiday. Take good care everyone.

    • I am always so happy that you take the time to comment on this blog… ❤️ It always makes my day that’s for sure… I am not such a fan of snow anymore either I only like it’s peacefulness and taking pictures of my kids in it (hopefully I can do that sometime soon) when Abbey is still little. I wish you and your family a great wonderful Christmas and a blessed, happy & healthy 2021 hugs Amy
