Back to the 50s

Good morning Maya fans! It’s Heidi here with you today from a rainy and clouded Norway. We can no longer deny it, autumn is here.


Do you like the 50s? Today I have made a card inspired by that period.


This is a pocket card that I have made with several panels I have cut with dies and put together layer by layer.


Inside the pocket you find this yellow card where you can write a greeting. I have used the papers “Life jacket” from Life by the Sea and “Long summer nights” from Summer Crush.



I wish you all a lovely day!








Already teenager!

Good morning Maja friends! It seems like the autumn is here, today it’s raining and it’s windy. A perfect day to stay indoors and to make some new cards!


Last week my niece turned 13. Already teenager, time flies! This card I made for her birthday with papers from “Life by the Sea”.



The card is decorated with tags, cheese cloth, doily, lace, washi tape and flowers.


I have painted the chipboard red and the image of the Converse shoes I have found on the internet. The text is made with Dymo.


Wish you all a lovely day! Hugs, Heidi

Midsummer vintage card

Good morning Maja friends! It’s Heidi with you today and I have a card to share with you.


Today we have a beautiful summer weather and yesterday evening we were celebrating midsummer. Soon I’m starting my summer vacation, and I’m looking forward to long, lazy and warm days!


This card I have made with the papers “The East Cost” from the “Life by the Sea” collection and “King’s Square” from the “Nyhavn” collection.






Together with the lovely Maja papers I have used a vintage image of an angel, laces, pearls, chipboard letters, a metal clip and flowers.


I wish you all a wonderful and creative day! Hugs, Heidi

Happy Days

Hello everyone! It’s Cathy here on the blog today. I have a layout that I have created using papers from a few collections, Vintage Summer and Life by The Sea. I also used the butterflies from Vintage Spring Basics as embellishments. I used the colours from my photo to determine my papers and went from there.


I used a 2 Crafty chipboard frame and altered it using walnut stain and faded jeans distress inks. The flowers are a combination of Green Tara, Petaloo and Prima flowers which all vary in shades of blue. The background (right) I used antique linen distress ink and The Crafters Workshop Mini Chickenwire reversed stencil to add some texture.


I recently bought a Memory Box banner die called Banner Parade. I die cut some papers from Life By the Sea and alternated them to create this fun banner. I applied some foam tape to each to add dimension.


Hashtags are everywhere these days and I used a chipboard saying from Dusty Attic and played around with it using Walnut Stain and Distress Stain and also Faded Jeans Distress ink to create an ombre effect.


This pennant was a last minute addition to my layout. It was a blank area that just needed something and banners are a great way to fill up a space. I added some hearts which were some left overs …..nothing goes to waste!

The card is made with papers from the collections “Vintage Autumn Basic” and “Life by the Sea”




The image I have found on the internet. And I have decorated the front page of the card with flowers, lace, tags, twine, a doily, pearls and cheese cloth.


Enjoy your day! Hugs from Heidi


Confirmation card

Good morning! Heidi here today sharing a confirmation card with you.


In Norway, where I live, it’s common to have a confirmation at age 15. Many teenagers prefer to get money as a gift for their confirmation day, so today I have made a card with a paper bag inside which can accommodate a gift.


The girl who is going to receive this card love horses. So that is why I have used a image of a girl and her horse.

IMG_0333I have used papers from the collections “Vintage Autumn Basic” and “Life by the Sea”.





Together with the Maja papers I have used corrugated cardboard, doilies, tags, cheese cloth, tulle, lace, twine and flowers.



Inside the card i have used a stamp with text that fits confirmation.

IMG_0335I wish you all a lovely day!




My first post!

Hi Maja friends,
Amy here!
I am so excited to show you my first layout as a Maja Girl ;-)Sadly though that I will be filling in for Gabrielle {I will miss her awesome work with Maja} for the next six months but I’ll try and do my best for you all.

I really love this months “mood board” and I was planing to participate in it before I got asked to be on the Maja Design Team! So a masculine layout I will show you today {without any blooms yep that was a real task for me}

The picture I used is one of our handsome son in a German amusement park! He told his dad can I sit on the car to take a picture. My husband said sure you can but I never got around to scrap it.

I always take out my first sheet {that’s darker blue one} cut out the middle part and on top of that a whole bunch of layers. Let’s have a closer look:


I don’t know if some of you already know my work but I love to use chipboard especially with the beautiful Maja Design papers. For this layout I took out all my metal pieces, that had to do anything with gears or cars.

Thank you so much for visiting the blog today and I hope I have inspired you to scrap those masculine pictures. Have a wonderful and creative day!
