Hello and Happy Summertime!

I created this sweet shaker card for a special friend using the fabulous Summertime Collection.

Shaker Cards are all the rage right now, plus they are lots of fun to make!


I used a circle punch in a few different sizes and a few of the papers for the 6×6 pad to create the opening for the shaker. I used left over plastic packaging for the window and sprinkled glitter and sequins inside.

Welcome to the Maja Design blog today! i hope that you are having a lovely week. I have let me inspired by the lovely “Life by the Sea” collection and made this nautical card.


I will give you a list of the papers used at the end of the post:)

The image is from Magnolia and is called #”Tilda playing in the water”. It is coloured with Distress Ink, reinkers. I have put crackle accents on to the jellyfishs and the starfish. The shells are from a local interior shop. The postmarks around the image are stamps from Stempelglede. I have also added some spots with liquid pearls here and there.



I have cut the waves out from Maja papers, and the ducks from Bazzill Kraft paper.


Under you see the inside of the card. I have made a sail, just to build up under the nautical look;)


Here are the papers I have used:

Welcome to the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy, and I’m so excited to be here with you today! I’m sharing a new card inspired by Maja Design’s stunning Vintage Summer Basics Collection. This week I’m opting for a soothing, neutral palette, handmade mixed media blooms, and some fun rubber stamping.

The base of the card is formed by distressing, layering, and stitching lovely Maja Design papers.

The flowers are created with mulberry paper and a plethora of products to add texture and color. They coordinate with the card perfectly in real life. I think the camera picked up on the sheen in some of the sprays, giving them a brighter gold tone in my photos. My hands will be stained for days, but these flowers were ever so much fun!

Below is a side view of the bouquet and it’s many layers.

Below is a closer look at the stamped image and stitching. One of the rubber stamps is an ad for paint, so I blended some acrylics to coordinate with the design paper and randomly splattered it about the card.

The twine bow and flower stamens are stained to fit in with the color palette.

The interior of the card is finished in design papers and stamping, but my photos of it didn’t turn out well. The picture below gives you an idea of how it’s completed. A 7

Champagne in the Summertime

Hello everyone :-)

Today it is finally time to share my first project created with the new collection to Maja Design, Summertime <3 

This is a delightful series of sheets that remind us of the summer. It brings up memories and makes us think about what we will do this summer. I have used the new sheets to decorate a small bottle with Champagne, placed it in a wheel barrow and the only thing I can think of is summer evenings with good friends, wine and strawberries <3

I have for a long time have the wheel barrow from Wycinanka, until the new sheets came from Maja Design, it have just been waiting for me to get an idea for what I whant to do with it. So I painted it white, before I started with the details. 

I have used several sheets from Maja Design, both from the collection that are 12×12 and 6×6. 
I have used these blue sheets from the new collection: 
Is My Favorite, Gives Me Joy, Glittering Water and By The Sea

The bottle I have decorated with a label with a bike on, just to remind us abute lazy summer days.

On the bottleneck I have attached two buttons with a bow.

All the flowers are put together with an unknown dies and the leaves below is embossed with embossing powders in silver. 

Half pearls that I spent inside the flowers and on the buttons I’ve made myself with Nuvo Crystal Drops.

I have also chosen to place a bike on the front of the wheelbarrow, this is also embossed with silver and comes from Wycinanka.

In addition to the buttons on the bottleneck I have also attached a tag, here you can write a summer greeting if you will.

Hello my crafty friends! I’m so happy to be here again as a guest designer and I will share with you a layout and a card I made with these beautiful papers.


For my layout, I used the ”Vintage Spring Basics” Collection, the ”6th of April” paper for my background and the ”4th and 5th of April” as a mat for my photo.

LO Close Up 4(1)

First I primed my paper with Finnabair clear gesso and when it was dried I applied modeling paste through a stencil. Then, I sprayed my page with ”Ocean Breeze Blue”, ”Baby Blue Eyes Aqua” and ”Delphinium Turquoise” Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists. When I was satisfied with the result  it was the time for some stamping.

LO Close Up 2(1)

My ”2Crafty” chipboards were covered at first with white heavy gesso and then heat embossed with Stampendous ”Aged Ivory’’ embossing enamel. My title was also treated the same way.

LO Close Up 1(1)

I added my floral clusters and glued some starfishes and shells to complement them.

LO Close Up 3(1)

A final touch with some Finnabair Art Stones  and Colored Fine-Grained Grit in Blue Light here and there and my page was ready.

Now, for my card I used the amazing ”Vintage Romance” Collection. I made two layers, the first one with the ”Passion” paper and the second one with the ”She’s my Lady” paper.

Card Close Up 4

I choose an image of a beautiful young lady from the ”Ephemera Cards” to place in the center of my card. I think this is just perfect for my vintage card. Don’t you think?

Card Close Up 3

Then, I mixed Finnabair Light Paste with ”Peach Opal” Mica powder and applied it through a stencil. Made some splatters with ”Open Arms Amethyst” Lindy’s Stamp Gang mist and made some random stamping.

I primed my 2crafty chipboard and the title with white heavy gesso and then I heat embossed them with Stampendous ”Aged Taupe” embossing enamel.

Card Close Up 1

I sprayed my white roses with ”Blazing Sun” Lindy’s Stamp Gang mist to give them an extra shine.  I added my floral cluster and combined some embellishments from Scrap-Unlimited.

As a final touch I glued some ”Licorice” Glass Beads here and there and my card was ready.



Thank you so much for the invitation!!!
