Hello Maja Friends,

the Wedding Season has officially started so it’s time to have a bunch of wedding cards by your hand.

I choose pastel colors for my cards always, they are perfect for any wedding occasion, I guess. So the pale and soft colors are the main choice this time too.

For my cards I used Sofiero collection, one of my favorite, by the way and focused on the pink colors of it.

Though I paid too much attention to embellishments , the papers are quite soft and not busy with the floral pattern.

I also made some fussy cutting of the roses, that I used from Vintage Romance collection, and added them as paper embellishments around my flower clusters.

Pale pink, frosty grey and white are a  perfect recipe for any shabby  project, either for wedding.

But for sure you can mix them for any other project too.


Products used:

Prima marketing flowers and Ephemera, Lace.

Live With Passion Layout with Video Tutorial

Hello Maja fans!

Today, I would like to share a new layout with a video tutorial made for my April inspiration. To create my page I used Maja Design papers from the gorgeous I Wish” collection along with several gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboards and beautiful 49 and Market flowers.

As always I found my photo on Pinterest and this one inspired me to create a steampunk page with a romantic and mysterious feeling. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.


You can watch all the procedure here…


For my project, I chose the ”I Wish – those memories will last” paper from the ”I Wish” collection. To start, I applied a coat of clear gesso and then, I created texture with a Finnabair icing paste and a stencil. Then, I randomly stamped and used Lindy’s Gang sprays to add color.

Next, I used different mixed media techniques to treat the Dusty Attic chipboards which you can watch on the video tutorial.

Then, I layered all the gorgeous elements around my photo and added in some 49 and Market flowers from the ”Botanical Blends & Potpourri – Marina” sets.


Paper used:



I hope you enjoyed my project!

Until next time happy crafting!


Just for you

Hello Sweet Maja fans.

Lenet here, and today I bring you this card made out of leftovers from other projects.

Unfortunately there were no strips or anything on the paper so I can’t tell you from which collection they are from.

I do know the flowers , I cut them out of the Smell the Roses sheet from the summertime collection.

I added a little glitter to the roses to give them a little luxury feel and a little bling.

The frame  and the just for you sentiment are both from Scrapiniec.

I hope you like this card I made for you. Make sure to come back to check on the projects the other Maja Girls made for you.

Thank you very much for watching




Egg Easter Cards

Good morning, dear Maja friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

Last Sunday we celebrated the most important Christian holiday of the year, the Resurrection of Christ. And of course I made some cards for the occasion 🙂 So today I bring you two cards shaped like Easter eggs, my favourite card form for this holiday:

For my cards I used the Celebration collection – nomen omen 🙂 I really like the blue-lilac combo, it looks so spring-fresh to me and I thought it would look good on spring-holiday cards.

Both cards have the same design – I layered selected papers to make the background for the focal image of the Lamb:

I added some flowers matching the colour palette and to emphasize the joyful, festive character of the cards I added some gold details: die-cut sentiment and catkin twogs and a glitter trim around the edges:

I really like how they turned out, dimensional yet still flat enough to go into an envelope 🙂

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamp: Lemonade; dies: Rosy Owl, X-cut, Craft&You; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; sequins, string: my stash.


I hope you had a wonderful Easter time celebration, filled with love and peace!

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you soon!
