Happy Sunday everybody!
I hope you have discovered how lovely the Vintage Spring Basics is. I have used some of the blue papers for my layout this Sunday. They have gorgeous patterns and are so easy to layer.
To add some more softness to the page I layered two different laces underneath the photo.
And I also added some cheese cloth and some beautiful seam binding to get a dreamy look.
I adore flowers and added quite a few of them onto this layout. I chose to keep them in the same colours as the papers and the seam binding. The pearls are for the final touch.Products used: Maja Design papers: Vintage Spring Basics (5th of March, 7th of March, 5th of April); flowers, leaves, pearls, lace, alpha stickers, gesso, stamp, zipper, cheese cloth, pins, seam binding, paper clips
Hi Maja fans! I hope your weekend is a lovely one!
I have created a layout for my son using the Ska vi ta en fika collection. The blues are perfect for boy layouts. I have used one of the creme/beige papers as a background and added the dark blue as an accent.
To create a scenery I used a piece of chipboard shaped as a gate. I painted it with white gesso. The little birds are so cute.And I had to add a cluster of flowers, because I loooove flowers – even on boy’s layouts. Products used:
Maja Design Ska vi ta en fika papers: Sockerkaka, Blåbärssylt, Favoriter
Other: chipboard (Blue Fern Studios), flowers (Prima), resin (Prima), bling (Prima), alpha (Prima), doily, die (Sizzix)
Today I have a layout to share. I have used the gorgeous Vintage Summer Basics collection and have created a layout using lots of layers. I just love the different shades of pink in this collection.
Here you can see the layers of flowers, leaves and bling swirls.
I have used some different border punches to create softness in the paper layers and have also added some white layers in between.
Not only did I use flowers, but also made some swirls by using dies.
I hope you enjoyed my layout! See you soon!

My children have always been best friends. Even though they occasionally are a bit irritated at each other, they really really care for each other. And I am so happy that they share a special bond just like my sisters and I do.
The layout is created for using Maja Design’s new collection Vintage Spring Basics. Isn’t it lovely? I LOVE IT!
I started this layout by layering different kinds of doilies and frames behind the photo.
Before I glued my layers and the photo to the background paper, I stamped the fence. To make it straight I used a pencil and a ruler to make a straight line. Easy to rub off after the stamping.Then I found some yellow roses in my flower stash and clustered them together with some leaves, and some pearls.

Hello everybody! So nice to be back here on the Maja blog! I have been working on a new layout using the Life in the Country collection. It is a summery, lovely collection with gorgeous patterns and colours.
I have enchanced the white washed colours in the papers by adding some more with elements to the page, like the Blue Fern Studios chipboards and the Sizzix dies
I also added some flowers and layered them to create dimension and different colours.
I created a circular photo mat by layering different Life in the Country papers and a doily.
Supplies used: Maja Design Life in the Country: Summer Breeze, Read A Book

My children are the most precious thing to me. The time spent with them is the happiest time of the day even though it is just helping them with their homework. I scrapped a page about my boy and I wanted to use more neutral colours. The papers are from the Life by the Sea collection. The different colours and the patterns are really gorgeous. I added some texture to the background paper using different masks and texture paste. Inside the clock I put this resin piece holding a heart. I love punches and use them frequently. Behind the photo I used some string as a kind of photo mat. Even though it is a boy’s page I added some flowers. I LOVE flowers. To make a flow I added the swirls in brown.
Supplies: Maja Design Life by the Sea papers: The East Coast, Bottle Message; masks, texture paste, flowers (Prima), leaves, crystal swirls (Prima), resin (Prima), alpha (Prima), string, paper clips, border punch
Crea Diem is one of my many favourites among the Maja Design collections. This week I have created a layout about my sister’s wedding. The Crea Diem papers are soft and elegant papers for special occasions and a scent of summer.
The Crea Diem collection is very versatile in colours and patterns. It is hard to choose which side to use since they are all so beautiful. And know what…if you visit my blog YOU can win the entire 12×12 collection…18 papers! On Feb 28th I will draw one lucky winner.
Ok, back to my layout. I added some chipboard pieces to match the Maja Design papers. I painted them in gesso and then stamped with black ink. To finish them off I used Glossy accent.
I like to use stamps on my layouts, but I find it difficult to stamp directly on the paper. So many things can go wrong. LOL. Therefore I stamp on transparency paper and create a kind of overlay instead.
Here is my title which I dabbed with a bit of white gesso. And you also see the big white bow I made.
Supplies: Maja Design Crea Diem papers: Den oersättliga tiden, Stark och fri, Fånga Dagen; chipboard swirls (Blue Fern Studios), flowers (Manor House Creations), crystal swirl (Prima), stamp (Glitz Design), alpha (Prima), ribbon
I rarely scrap about myself. Perhaps it is because I don’t like to be photographed or because what I have to say about myself is more private. But for my journaling on this page I have added an envelope – a perfect way to hide notes. On this layout I did some ripping and tearing to create a worn look. The Maja Design papers all have fabulous names, perfect to use as titles. My layout is called Av Hela Mitt Hjärta, which is written in Latin on the light grey paper.The torn edges are creating by using a distresser tool but I do some of the tearing with my hands and fingers too. The Maja Design papers are thick and it makes it easy to tear them beautifully. I found some flowers that matched the beautiful purple colours of the Crea Diem papers. Together with some white accents like resin pieces, pearls and doilies the colour really pops. As I said before I love layering and here are my paper layers mixed with some of the embellies.Supplies: Maja Design Crea Diem papers: Av Hela Mitt Hjärta, Kärleken Övervinner Allt, Sann Vänskap; envelope (Maya Road), resins (Prima), flowers and vine (Prima), pearl swirl (Zva Creative), alpha stickers (Prima), metal (Prima),artisan elements (Pink Paislee), tags, doliy, old book paper
Today is the day for my first blog post for Maja Design and I am proud to present a layout with one of my favourite paper collections – Crea Diem. This summer we went on a day trip to Copenhagen and walked down to Nyhavn, a very picturesque part of the city. We had a really great time in the sunshine and in the company of friends.
I used the floral paper Känn dig själv as background, but to make the layout less busy I added the blue Sin lyckas smed on top. To create a sense of layering I used a mask creating a pattern with white texture paste. Then I added some more gorgeous Maja Design papers and a few punched borders.
As I said I love layering and not only layering papers. Adding some tags and note papers behind the photo and also a chipboard frame painted in white gesso around the photo brings even more layers and dimension to a layout. Since I love flowers and bling I created flower clusters to frame the photo.
The title is simply Nyhavn and a small bird is sitting on top.
