Hello and a very warm welcome to Maja Design. Heather with you today. For my first February project I am showcasing a ‘Tag in a Pocket’ with rich and earthy tones, perfect for a wedding .April tag details 7April tag and Pocket 1April tag and pocket 2 The pocket is created from Gammaldags Jul – Karamellstrut  and the stacked elements are placed on a foundation of  Vintage Autumn Basics . I always like to stitch around the edge of my foundation and then begin placing my Nestabilities diecuts, beginning with the largest graduating to the smallest size. I completed this stack with a thin band of paper and added a heart and a bling brad. Some tiny blooms add the perfect finishing touch. April Tag details 6I have used , stripes, spots and floral with some text papers … Maja collections are so fabulous to blend and combine as they all complement each other perfectly, making creating projects a breeze .. sigh x

April tag and pocket closie 4My tag inside is created with white bazzill . I adhered a piece of paper on the top section, added a circle and some washi tape and a stamp.This quote is one of my faves to use in a card or tag .As you go through life, Keep ten friends by your side . Truth, Courage, Tenderness, Curiosity, Loyalty, Understanding, Laughter, friendship, trust and Love. Always believe in yourself and your dreams . I feel these words can be used for either Male or female, child or adult .. and almost any celebration.
