Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer with you today. I have prepared the large album (although the size is only 20 by 20 cm), by large I mean the amount of work, papers, details, photos that I have used in it.

Its the young and beautiful couple who got married in Australia but the girl is from Russia.

So from Russia with love… I have made it using the fabrics that I picked in blue/grey palette.

Hi everyone! I am back with a shaker card today. I am making some videos on You Tube for Magnolia, and this is my final product. In the last video I show how to make a shaker card, and how I made this card. It is on the Magnolia channel today. I have used some gorgeous Maja papers for my project.


I thought this collection would fit my project perfectly!


I have used Distress Inks, re-inkers and Markers for the image.


Here you see the shaker card, which is filled with glitter.

Some more details. The cute flowers are from Petaloo.


I think the flowers match the papers so well.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

With love,


A Winter Wonderland!

Hello, dear friends! I hope you’re having the happiest of holidays! It’s Nancy with you,  and it’s my great honor to share my final Christmas card of the season. I did try to share this with you two weeks ago, but there were problems with Maja Design’s WordPress on the day, and my post was somehow permanently lost after a very short period of time. Hence, I am giving it another go today and hoping for much better luck!

This winter wonderland card is created using one of my favorite frosty paper collections, Vintage Frost Basics!

Dimensional snowflakes, icy branches, snowballs, and loopy twine bows abound in this wintery scene.

The blues and whites work quite well together in creating a frosty chill!

Below is a peek at the interior of the card, including a little pocket to hold a gift card.

Maja Design Papers Used: 


Other Products Used: snowflake dies, foam pop up adhesive,  floral iced branches and berries, twine Tim Holtz sentiment stamp, Martha Stewart border punch, archival ink, sewing machine, thread

Thank you so much for being here with us. May all the blessings of this joyous season  remain with you throughout the year!

Hugs, Nancy-sign
