Memories with Maja Design

Good day friends!

Today I'm up on the Maja Design blog and I have for you a layout created with the Nyhavn collection. We've seen a lot of the new Summer Crush last month so I thought I would like to feature a slightly older collection but just as perfect for your summertime adventures. 

I really love the color palette in this collection - it's warm and comforting, yet fun and outdoorsy at the same time. So I chose this photo of Hubby and Eldest playing on the tyre swing, the two of them spending some precious time together. Subsequently I realised, even the colors from the photo match the papers too.

More details in the close-ups:

My floral cluster on top of my paper layers. You can see lots of background work - stenciling, painting with Ayeeda matt paints, splattering, stamping and heat embossing to create resist. My chipboard from Blue Fern Studios was also colored very lightly with gelato so that it blends nicely into the embellishments and allow the colors from the background and papers to stand out.

Another mini cluster where you can see the gorgeous designs on the Nyhavn papers. I've also layered the info strips and used those as subtitles.

My balancing cluster. The leaves were die cut and tucked in to create a nice little bouquet.

That's all I have for today. Thanks for dropping by!



  1. Beautiful layout, love the card too!

  2. Oooh! That black bracket tucked in there......nice touch:) Loooove your layers and the sort of light but shabby look you've got here. Even if it is PURPLE - LOL!!!


thank you for dropping a note, it means so much to me!
