Hello and welcome to the Maja Design Blog! I hope this post finds you well. It’s Nancy, and I’m beyond delighted to be here with you on this lovely spring day.

As you know, I love every single collection that Maja Design creates. Each is timeless and compliments the other designs beautifully, but the Vintage Basics collections are truly my go-to papers. I simply can’t do without them! It seems the perfect time of year to relish the season’s exquisite gardens, so I’m sharing this new ‘Le Jardin’ card crafted from Maja Design’s Vintage Summer Basics papers.

I don’t believe I’ve ever used this gorgeous floral pattern before. It’s deliciously shabby chic. I don’t know how this pattern escaped me for so long, but I’m making it right today.

Each paper is distressed, layered, and stitched to form a base. I’m feeding my addiction to flower making with these blooms that are handcrafted from the paper collection.

The florals are layered over a backdrop of pretty, die cut ovals. A resin timepiece is tucked away in the corner. An abundance of die cut sprigs and leaves are interspersed throughout the bouquet, along with a natural twine bow.

‘Le Jardin’ is stamped onto design paper, then fussy cut, distressed, and layered. All of the ticket shapes are created using a ticket edge punch.

Here are the Maja Design papers I used today:

I also used: Melissa Frances Resin Clock, Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die, Wild Rose Studio Oval Frame die, Memory Box Blooming Branch die, Magnolia Rose Leaf die, Stampin Up Ticket Corner punch, Hero Arts Clear Stamp, Tim Holtz Distress Oxide in Broken China, Prima Twine, Flower Centers, Tim Holtz Distress Tool, Foam Adhesive, Hot Glue Gun, Sewing Machine, Thread.

Maja Design papers are my favorite in all of the world! I can’t say it enough. Every other brand of paper in my craft room is completely neglected. All you have to do is work with them once to see and feel the difference. After that you’ll never want another brand again. I consider them the luxe line in the world of papercrafting, the Chanel of the crafty universe, but priced so you can afford to treat yourself. You can have them on your doorstep just by clicking on the ‘Store Finder’ tab at the top of the blog.
