Goodmorning everyone,

When I went through all my pretty Maja Design collections this last three days {I have them sorted by which came out first and so on}I saw that I have collections that I don’t use that much. So for this layout I used the pretty “Fika” collection with all pretty blues, purples and greens in it. I just love all the images on the papers and I so wanted to go for the sheet with the apples but it became the cherry’s instead {{underneath the picture}}

Maja 21

Most of the {creative embellishments} chipboard pieces are treated with gesso, embossing powder and spray to give a watery look only the leaves I just left raw with a little star dust stickles on the open spaces. On this layout I added lots of layers and I used the pretty clocks & butterflies from two other collections.



If you look closely you will see I added pearls on my stenciling on the background paper, also the embossing powders has some shimmer in them. Lately I am hooked on pinterest it gives me some much ideas that I can use perfectly in this hobby. The purple flowers are handmade with some Cheery Lynn Designs flower dies and I added “say it in crystals” by Prima Marketing in the centers of the flowers and the other flowers are by Petaloo.



Maja Design papers used: Hemma hos mig, Pratstund, Favoriter, Blåbärspaj, Blåbärssylt, from Vintage Autumn Basics no.XVI and from Enjoying Oudoors Garden creatures.


Today I would also like to show you a card I created for Cheery Lynn Designs using the pretty “Nyhavn”collection in a softer way more shabby chic way.


Thank you so much for visiting the blog today and I would like to wish you a wonderful, creative & sunny Easter weekend. We are going to have a very busy weekend first go to my father-in-law’s birthday this Saturday and on Monday to my stepdad’s birthday I just love to see them all again sometimes live get’s so busy. I hope you enjoy your weekend as well hugs sending your way xox!
