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

As you might probably remember from my previous post, May is traditionally the month of First Communions in Poland. Therefore last time I shared an exploding box and today I bring you two cards:

I used the Miles Apart collection and employed one of my favourite card techniques – the patchwork. I allows you to use up even the smallest pieces of papers and is therefore perfect for many scrappers who – like me – are organically unable to throw such pieces away 😉 And so I used a square punch and made two backgrounds in pinks…


…and blues:

The cards are actually very, very simple: just a chipboard Host chalice, die-cut leaves, three lilies and acrylic gems. But the layered background with various patterns make them look rich and colourful.

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard: Scrapiniec; dies: Cheery Lynn Designs, my stash; gems: Marianne Design, my stash.









The Sea is Special – Sea-life Cards with Maja Design

Hello Maja Design Friends.  Jennifer Snyder here to share a card made with one of my favorite themes, the sea and sea-life.    I love everything about the sea.  I also love to stretch my imagination and create sea themed projects using paper collections that aren’t sea themed.

The card today features Maja Design’s Denim & Girls collection as the background for my underwater card.

The actual papers used from the Denim & Girls collection is “Easy Going” and “Loose Fit”. 


While the paper collection doesn’t sound like it could be used for the sea, a bit of imagination and it really works. I used some stamps and dies from Spellbinders to help with the design.  The stamps were stamped onto watercolor paper and colored with watercolor pencils.

Thanks for stopping here.  Happy Crafting.
