Hello everyone and a very warm welcome to the Maja Design blog . The weather is extremely cold here in Australia as we are in the middle of Winter. I am dreaming of warm spring days with blooms smiling happily in my garden … Today I am in a Romantic mood showcasing a very romantic card, loaded with blooms, and some resin embellies, embracing the dreamy new collection at Maja Design …..‘Coffee in the Arbour ‘ Heaps of yummo layering and stitching. I always have such fun creating these cards . I find the Maja papers such a delight to play with, and these layers are complimented with the blooms and a key . Just look how these papers embrace the blooms .I can just imagine sitting at a table enjoying coffee and cake surrounded by a beautiful garden full of color and blooms .. sigh xoxo I decorated the inside of the card quite simply by adding more striped paper and a small die on the right side . I seemed to be a little carried away with the blooms and just kept adding more of them .These papers blend so beautifully with little pink rosebuds, pink and white roses and a resin key .
Maja Design papers used for the pink and white card .Coffee in the Arbour …..Grandmas old Porcelain cups, Raspberry cupcake, Raspberry Jam Cookies, Lets share a cookie… Vintage Frost 19th December ..
Celebrate with BLUE AND WHITE – always so fresh and crisp . I love the crisp feeling to a blue and white project . Here I have created a tag that pops inside the pocket .
My stacked layers consist of leaves , rosebuds, chipboard and dies, finishing off perfectly with a heart and an altered metal piece and pearl brad . This pocket has a foundation of white cardstock with stamping in blue, and some white gesso splashed randomly to add to the crisp feel of Blue and white . Maja Design Papers used for the Blue and white tag and pocket Coffee in the Arbour..Blueberry cupcake, Lovely weather, and Walking in the Forest – Jeans . Thanks so much for popping by and I do hope you are inspired to have a play with these romantic papers . Big hugz to each of you and Bye for now until next time . happy scrapping x

WISHING YOU lots of everything WONDERFUL xox I embellished the tag with chipboard , ribbon, blooms and leaves . This envelope and tag is for some friends of ours who have just moved into their new home. Their children are now all adults and married so they decided to down size . Their new home has a very pretty established garden with deep blue and white blooms … …. number 15 ….. Their new house number is ….15 ….. We Bought a beautiful large Fern in a ceramic pot for them and popped this tag and envelope with it as a gift to celebrate their new Home . They were very happy, and received it with love and joy . Full front view of my embellished tag . I always love to embellish the back of my tags and leave room to write a message for my friends … I added this little cluster of embellies on the envelope to add interest and contrast to the gingham paper … I truly love the richness of this collection and the feel of nature it gives … Maja Design collection used …….

Hi there everyone, thanks for popping by Maja design blog , we absolutely love having you here . Today I am sharing TWO Projects with you …. A Tag and a richly colored Easel Card, created with the Walking in the Forest Collection and the Vintage Autumn basics Collection. We are having our winter season here in Australia and I wanted to create something warm and bright . I have chosen a combination of Denim blue and Deep Burnt Orange, with touches of rust. I stacked my elements combining Maja Design papers with diecut leaves, and various other diecut shapes, together with some chipboard twigs . I kept with the warm rusty theme and colored my chipboard in Rusty ink . I feel the orange and blue are a Perfect marriage . These blues flowed together beautifully and I added some metal buttons each side of my cluster . The inside of my card is stamped with the word celebrate with a rusty inked swirly chipboard piece to hold the easel in place .
I also want to share another project with you …. Recently some friends of ours had a HOUSE WARMING party…. and I created this Tag to attach with our gift ….again I used Walking in the Forest Collection.
The base of my tag is made from Chipboard, to create a strong foundation. I covered it in ‘Jeans’ – and proceeded to stack various diecut pieces, using various papers from the Walking in the Forest Collection. I love the rich colors of this Collection and the deep blue embraces the Rusty toned chipboard perfectly, creating a warm toasty energy in this cold wintery weather . I decided to add a circle with their house number 28, to make it personal to them.
Maja Design materials used Walking in the Forest -Jeans, Cozy Scarf , Seasons Last Birdsong – Vintage Autumn Basics – No XX111, plus bs . Thanks so much for popping over here at Maja Design Blog and thanks for looking at my creations . I hope I have inspired you in some way …. bye for now until next time, big big hugz to each of you x
