December Daily Album Cover

Hello Maja Desing fnas and friends!

Larissa here sharing a new Maja Design project with you guys!

As December is just around the corner and with a lot of great winter and Christmas lines by Maja Design I just thought it would be a great idea to start preparing my “December Daily” album.

For today´s project I have used “It´s Christmas time” line:


This collection is all about preparations, decorations and expectations – so, it was perfect for this project!

I´ve started with my album cover…

This is a canvas album filled with plastic pockets that I´ll use to insert my December daily pages.

Thanks for your visit,

See you soon,


Simply The Best

Hi there, Maja Fans!

Welcome to the blog today, it’s Maja here to share a layout :)

I must admit I don’t like early Christmas. I don’t like Christmas trees and Santas in shops since November, I don’t start making Christmas cards in August. The long tradition in my family is to decorate the Christmas tree on the Christmas Eve morning, not a day earlier! :) (well, we do keep it throughout January so we have plenty of time to cherish the festive look of the house ;) ) And I love it that way :) But that doesn’t mean I won’t use Christmas papers when they are released in October – just have a look at this LO:

thebestYep, that’s A Gift For You! :) I just love the mini houndstooth pattern paper and I knew I would be using it first of all since I opened my DT box :D So let’s take a closer look. I used my favourite colour combo: white-gray-mint/teal, I think it’s a really refreshing mix :) First I stamped some script motives on the paper and then added stars using a stencil and white gesso:

thebest1I added strips of washi tape with various patterns, tore the background paper and folded it out for some interesting dimension. I matted my multiphoto sheet with pieces of papers – I coloured the newspaper paper with my custom-made glimmer mist ;) See that little “you” tag? I snipped it from the signature strip :) And look at those miniglasses – here’s a funny story to them. Filip always wanted to have “something medical”, but it’s been always Kuba who got to wear corrective insoles, glasses and had his teeth varnished. Filip feels neglected by doctors and to cheer him up I “gave” him the glasses – I wish you could see the look on his face when he saw that! LOL

thebest2I coloured the chipboard words o the title with various mists and surrounded it with flowers:

thebest3thebest4I even used the Christmas tags :) so that the holiday motives are hidden :)

thebest5I have a real problem storing my layouts as the albums are so bulky and for some time now I’ve been trying to reduce my need for dimension ;) So here’s a side look – I did my best!

thebest6Do you use your Christmas papers for non-Christmas projects too?

I used DA forrest paint, for the green, used on the chipboard. On the flower of the vine, I stained it with plum alcohol ink,then applied a coat of rock candy crackle. Once the crackle dried, I dry painted on DA sugar plum paint,to bring out the cracks & tone down the color…


I used black gold TA glimmer mist on the Alpha,numbers,gate & hanging post…


Shows some stamp & stencil work….



The stencil used is TCW,confetti,I used Viva modelling cream,champagne. When the cream dried I rubbed in some plum pebbles chalk….

Happy Monday!! Marilyn is here  to share my new Maja Design project with you today. It is a layout for a special friend and behind her in the photo is a brick wall that I continued through the page.  I gave the  effect with a Prima stencil and molding paste to my paper.  I worked with the beautiful Walking in the Forest collection.MarilynRivera-MajaDesign-Oct-2-#2.

I made this mix media page with fabulous textures and dimensions as you can see it in this photo.DSC_7717


I made textures in all my left side of the page, then I draped my Maja Design paper (Knitted Sweather) and made layers with corrugated and lace from Tresor de Luxe.MarilynRivera-MajaDesign-Oct-2-#3.

I cut some of the leaves with a Sizzix die from the Colours of Fall paper and I added some  leaves chippies from 2Crafty Chipboards.MarilynRivera-MajaDesign-Oct-1


I cut out some clocks from the No. XVI paper from the Vintage Autumn collection.

Supplies: Walking in The Forest collection- Knitted Sweather, Colour of Fall, Die cut Sheet. Vintage Autumn Basics-No.XVI. Prima Marketing- flowers, stencil, molding paste, gesso, stamp. Sizzix- Little Leaves die, 2Crafty Chipboards-chippies.

Family Values

Hello Maja Fans. The weather is getting colder and it’s time to spend more evening with your family.

My layout is about family values.

ElenaOlinevich_Family_layout  The family is the place where your feel calm and safe, so I used plain colors and my choice for the paper was Vintage Summer Basics, and yes, my favourite beige and pale pink colors.

img_6510I used some strip and floral papers, and added some texture using modeling paste, micro beads and flowers.

img_6481 Some chipboard pieces, Dies and tons of flowers of the sa,e colors as the paper background.

img_6494Some lace and the ribbon, these are fabric toucehs I love most of all. I pulled the ribbon through the resin frame and tied with a twine.

img_6489  I framed the image of teh lady, as it helps to accent how people are the matter of our lives. I applied a small amount of microbeads over the frame and then colored it a bit with Primary Elements.

img_6482Family ties ares trong when you are together, so I strenghthened this idea using metal door lock.

Hope you have liked my layout. Thank you for stopping by today.

Products used:

Vintage Summer Basics- 1910, 1911, 1926.

Prima Marketing flowers , resin and metal embellishments, 2Crafty Chipboard, lace and ribbon trims.


Fall Inspired Forest

Morning Maja friends! It’s Andrea here with you today starting off with some big flowers, big bows and lots of Maja paper goodness! Here’s a card I made using the Walking in the Forest collection: FallFramedLilliesMAccessories on this little beauty consist of Verve stamps, a silk bow, twine, crystal stamens, Dark Chocolate liquid pearls, vintage alace, and lots of distressing. I also inked up some gauze and placed it behind the big bow. I was toying with making a Christmas card, but I think I’m going to wait a bit and enjoy this beautiful Autumn weather! Have a great day and thanks for spending part of it with me! Andrea-sign

Scrapping Girl Style {NEW ‘A Gift For You” Collection}

Sweet Kiera_small

Hi all! Gabrielle here with you today to share a layout I made of my little great-niece Kiera.  I love this sweet pic of her that her mother took, I wanted to keep the page light and feminine so I thought I would go with a grey and pink color scheme.   I decided to work with the soft brown/grays in the NEW ‘A Gift For You’ collection, and thought it would be fun to use pink as my accent color, using some papers from some of the other Maja Design collections.

A gift for you

While this collection is meant as a holiday collection, I thought it would be fun to show how you can use this paper collection for non-holiday themed projects as well.  One thing I really love about Maja Design papers is that, while the front of the patterned paper gives itself more to the theme of the collection, the backside allows you to use the paper for any theme because the backside tends to have a more generic design to it.

Sweet Kiera_close2

I began my page design by layering grey toned papers from the ‘A Gift for You’ collection, with pinks from other collections (Vintage Spring Basics, Coffee In the Arbour).  I also took one of the scripted pattern designs from ‘A Gift For You’ collection (Hope to See You Soon paper) and used this paper to punch floral petals using an EK Success punch (Retro Flower, medium and Large punch).  I used both sides of this patterned paper, lightly inked parts of the petals, leaving some parts natural.  Then I lightly misted the petals with water and gave them a crinkle.  I added some floral stamens to the centers to finish the look.  The chipboard corset chipboard piece is from Dusty Attic Designs called Lacing Tash.

Sweet Kiera_close1

I used ‘My Dear Friend-bs’ paper as one of the layers on my project and then used the left over scraps to cut out some heart shapes which I matted with the darker gray paper called ‘Wrapped in Old Newspaper’.  I added machine stitching and then used some Platinum Stickles over the stitches to give the thread a glittery look.  The chipboard title and zipper accents are from Dusty Attic.  To give the page that light-hearted girly look, I cut some butterflies from the ‘Butterflies are Free’ paper from ‘Coffee in the Arbour’ collection.

Sweet Kiera_close3

I added more floral designs in the top right corner using the same method I mentioned earlier.  I clustered these over a Dusty Attic Corner Flourish #1 which I painted with white Gesso, stamped with some script stamps, edged with some brown chalk ink (Ingvild Bolme’s Branch Bark) and coated with Crackle Varnish.

Maja Design Papers used in this Project:

~ A Gift For You (Handwritten Postcards-bs, My Dear Friend-bs, Hope to See You Soon, Hope to See You Soon-bs, Wrapped In Old Newspaper-bs)

~ Vintage Spring Basics (7th of May)

~ Coffee In the Arbour (Buttterflies Are Free, Raspberry Jam Cookies-bs)

~ Vintage Autumn Basics (XVI)

I hope you enjoyed my project today, and hope that I’ve inspired you to use your Maja papers on a variety of different themed projects.


Thank You Teacher

Hello Maja Fans, welcome to the blog today :)

A week ago we celebrated the Teacher’s Day in Poland. My mom was a teacher, her sister was a teacher and I also used to teach before the kids were born. I loved the job, but also know how difficult and sometimes unrewarding it can be. Therefore I always appreciate teacher’s work and created this Thank You Teacher exploding box with real pleasure:

mdizab0I placed a delicate flower composition on the top:

mdizab1Removing the top will make the box “explode” and reveal its contents :)

mdizab2The walls feature various “thank you for-s”, e.g. for patience, wisdom, hard work etc.:

mdizab3mdizab4And in the centre I put a mini book with a quotation that reads: “The true Teacher is the one remembered throughout life. And excellent Teacher inspires.”

mdizab5Here’s how I made the book: I wrapped a piece of chipboard with paper, added some smaller “pages” folding and curling the top one with the quotation and tied a piece of baker’s twine with a feather charm:

mdizab6A little trick: to make the book look “standing”, I propped it on a mini roll of paper :)

mdizab7I hope the teacher who received the box like it and felt truly appreciated!


Maja Design papers: Coffe in the Arbour. Other: die: Prima; butterflies: UHK Gallery; stamp: Lemonade; baker’s twine: Dovecraft; charm, flowers: from my stash.

Have a nice day and see you soon! :)
