Welcome creative friends!
Suitable to the Valentine month I was inspired to create a vintage layout
with our latest very romantic paper collection ‘Our little street cafe’.
I used the paper sheets ‘Joyful’ ; ‘Something sweet’ as background paper and ‘The best place’ both sides as torned stripes. Matching the vintage theme I added some chipboards from Dusty Attic, some remnants of lace, old book pages and some Prima Marketing flowers to the mixed media layout.

Thanks for your visit!
I hope I could inspire you to use this beautiful papers
for some happy hours on your crafty table.
Hi everyone! Here I am with a Valentine card for you. To share some love. I hope you all are fine. Here in Norway it is still raining, but then again it is cozy to spend some time in the crafting room.
For my card I have used papers from the lovely collection Little Street Cafe. Perfect for any romantic card.
Dies and stamps are from Magnolia.
I have cut out the flowers, and sprayed them with water, curled them up, and let them to dry. Then they get this crispy look. I have also painted them with some white Gesso paint.
Behind the image I have placed some corrugated paper and cheese cloth.
I love to use MajaDesign papers, as they are thick and the colours matches the Distress Ink colours I use for my painting.
Thank you so much for visiting the MajaDesign blog today!
Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
This week ends on a very pleasant note – we’re going to celebrate St. Valentine’s Day! And for this occasion I created two cards in different styles that can be used to express your feelings 🙂
Both cards were made using the latest collection, Little Street Cafe. The first one features a more pinky-red colour combo with a touch of green:
The focal point is a hand-coloured with markers stamped image, placed upon a mini hearts patterned paper and decorated with mini roses, tiny heart charm and a stamped sentiment embossed with glitter ep. Details of the image are also accented with glitter:
The other card uses more purple colour tones and has a less “cute” look, so to say 😉 It would therefore be perfect for a man or for a lady who doesn’t like flowers that much 😉
I kept the design pretty simple, with a large metal charm in the shape of angel wings as the main decorative element. I added a die-cut sentiment and metal screw-like brads.
Which one do you like more?
Here’s what I used:
Maja Design papers:
Other: dies: Die-Namics, Spellbinders; stamps: Penny Black, Lemonade; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; brads: Rayher; charms: my stash.
That is all for today, thank you for visiting! Have a lovely St.Valentine’s Day!
Hello Friends. Jennifer Snyder here featuring a card made using the gorgeous cheery Little Street Cafe collection by Maja Design. I love the warm happy colors of this collection.
In addition to the patterned papers from Little Street Cafe, I used the companion monochrome collection, Shades of Cafe, a set of solid cardstock created to perfectly match the patterned paper.
Tea Please (A and B side of the paper)
Die cut sheet
I used some spectacular dies on this card from Spellbinders.
I am sending this card to a wonderful lifelong friend with a Valentine’s Day Birthday. Don’t you think these colors are warm and happy? I just know they will melt her heart.
My card opens to a surprise inside. The sweet image in on the inside of the card was cut from the die cut sheet.
Happy crafting. Thank you for visiting today.
I hope our winter, which was actually not a winter at all, is over soon.
Grey, wet and some days it just doesn’t seem to get light at all.
But sometimes, even after frosty nights, you could discover a landscape
enchanted by hoarfrost.
This was my inspiration for my mixed media collage today.

At the last trade fair we made some mushrooms of egg carton with our children.
They made enthusiastically fly mushrooms, that seemed contagious
and so I was inspired to tried another variant myself.
I used our wonderful winter collection ‘Holiday in the Alps’
‘Let it snow’ ; ‘Deers’ and some suitable monochrome papers.
Many thanks for your visit!
Have a good time!
