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

Today I bring you another project made using the latest collection, Bohemian Harmony – a birthday card in the boho style 🙂

It’s a very simple card with neutral ecru and beige background with beautiful subtle patterns of the Boho papers. I decorated the flower cluster with punched tabs, crystal twigs and linen string:

Then I added a mini macrame I made using thick cotton thread and a toothpick 🙂

I finished the card off with a chipboard sentiment covered with opalescent glitter and glitter sequins.

I really like the way it turned out, even my first macrame ever 😉 Beautiful papers in the background helped to create a delicate card in neutral colours.

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Prima; vintage ribbon: Wild Orchid Crafts; punches: DpCraft; chipboard: Fabryka Weny; string, thread, sequins: my stash.

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you soon!

Chocolate Boxes For Grandparents

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

On January 21st and 22nd we celebrate Grandparents Days in Poland. Any kid blessed with grandparents knows how much they mean for them, and especially in Poland grandparents are often very much involved in upbringing of the young generation, looking over grandchildren when parents go to work. There’s no gift that would equal they amount of love and care grandparents share with their families, but I’m sure anything handmade would be of great value for them 🙂 And so for this incoming celebration I created a set of chocolate boxes:

I made the boxes using the Bohemian Harmony collection, perfect for both feminine and masculine projects, with this trendy eco boho vibe to them 🙂 For the Grandma box I used the flower bouquet patterned paper that provided beautiful background for the hearts pattern I added with a stencil, the flower cluster and embossed sentiment:

I decorated the box for Grandpa with gears pattern upon the striped pattern paper, the flower cluster with newspaper print and metal leaves to make it look more masculine 🙂 linen string and matte gold sequins:

Inside the boxes, apart from the chocolate pocket, I included tags for writing in wishes:

I really like the way these turned out, serving both and gift packaging and best wishes cards 🙂

Here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Prima, Petaloo; leaves: Prima, my stash; stamps, stencils, chipboard: Agateria; ribbon: Rayher; string, sequins: my stash.

Wishing all the best to all Grandparents around the world – that’s all for today, see you later!

Happy 2022.  May you all have a fabulous and healthy year filled with crafty joy and lots of Maja Design beauty.

I am Jennifer Snyder and I’d like to share my card created using Maja Design’s newest collection, Bohemian Harmony with it’s coordinating Monochrome collection, Shades of Boho.

 

 

The 12×12 sheets used are as follows: “Don’t Worry” and “Feel Alive”.  The solid cardstock is from the Monochromatic Shades of Boho collection and is called “Sienna”.

Bohemian Harmony - Don't worry-bsBohemian Harmony - Feel aliveShades of Boho - Sienna-bs

 The dies used for today’s card are from Spellbinders die of the month and from their new Garden Shutters collection.  I thought the gorgeous rich colors from the Boho collection played perfectly with the eyelet lace quality of the dies.

Thanks for stopping here today.  Happy crafting in 2022.

Hello Sweet Maja Fans,

Lenet here today, I hope you all had a very nice , warm and festive Midwinter/Christmas /Yule or what you in your country or believes celebrate.

Today I have this gift card for you that I made for my daughter using the latest Christmas collection Happy Christmas.

This is the front,  the A gift for you sentiment  is made with  a Waltzingmouse stamp.

The card closes with a red and white bakers twine.

My kids are gamers so give them  a giftcard for , playstation ,STEAM or whatever they want . Because the don’t really sell real giftcards any more but give you an voucher instead.

So I made a little envelope containing the voucher with code to put in the giftcardholder , wich I made using a die from lawn fawn.

 

And of course I did some fussy cutting again. The Merry Christmas sentiment is a piece of the bottom strip of one of the papers.

I decided to make more christmas cards thru the year so I don’t have to do them all in a hurry at the end of the year.

Just so you know I’m not confusing dates or time of the year when you see me posting a christmas card in mits of summer

I hope you like this giftcard I made.

I wish you very happy holidays and hope to see you again soon.

Christmas Ornament

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

Christmas is here! 🙂 This evening many people around the world will gather at their family tables to celebrate the Christmas Eve supper – something I always look forward to through the year. I love the atmosphere, the smells of delicious meals, the lights and the decor of the holidays. And today I bring you something I made to decorate my house – a hanging ornament:

 

Of course, I used the Happy Christmas collection 🙂 I die cut the ornament shape out of various papers and glued them together into an accordion:

…but went only half way through with it:

The other half is flat and decorated with stamps, poinsettias and snowflakes:

I also attached a small pearl and a tassel at the end:

As it is double-sided, it serves many purposes: you can hang it on the Christmas tree as a bauble or somewhere else in the house as a decor piece. And I really like how the accordion form showcases various paper patterns 🙂

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Spellbinders, Sizzix; stamps: Agateria; tassel: Marianne Design; pearls: my stash.

That’s my last post this year, so let me wish you a very merry and blessed Christmas, spent with loved ones, and all the best in the new year!

See you in January! 🙂
