Hello Everyone :-)

Today it is my turn to present one project for Maja Design. 

The project I’m going to show you today is one project I created 25 August, but because of bad images, the time was never right, it never got published. But today it’s time, and you know what is funny is that these images are the first pictures I took of the project.

You know I’m going to be a Aunt, for the first time in February next year <3 But to tell you how this project started, we need to go some months back. My sister called me at the start of August to tell me she was pregnant, and the due date is February the 18. She also told me that she wanted to tell it in a very special way, in fact she whant to tell it with a specal project. How this project was going to be, it was all up to me, but it had to be a calendar on it, since we not at that time knew if it was a boy or a girl, the project had to be in neutral colors.

I liked the idea right away, I liked it alot, and that this is not a project you see each day. What is special about this box is that this is the first project I make to my aunt children <3

For this box I’ve used paper from two different Maja Design collections. Vintage Romance and Vintage Spring Basics. I have chosen out those sheets in a gray and bright tone.



After I had covered the box with pattern sheets, I attached silver feet below the box, glue on buttons and pearl ribbon on the sides and the edges.

On the lid of the box I made one plateau, this I did because it would be easier to decorate and put things I create in 3D and other details.

On two of the sides I have decorated with one locomotive (my own tutorial), an elephant that I found in a folding book for children, butterflies, flowers, buttons, pearls, cheese cloth and blocks.

On the other two sides, I have many of the same details, but here I have one 3D plane (put together with my own turorial) and a Giraffe folded from the same children book that the elephant.

Atop of the plateau i have a easel that I have made myself, with a calendar on. Around the due date which is the 18 I have a heart and on the top of the calendar I have written February. February is punched out with one set of dises from kaBoks.

On the side of the calendar are several blocks, these blocks I have used one dies of one train and placed on blocks that I have put together. The other details are pearl and butterflies.

One very special project from me today, that means a lot to me that I got to make it <3 <3 <3

And before I quit my blog post, I would like once again to say congratulations to my sister and the great man she is with <3  You’re going to be a great dad and mom to a little boy coming in February <3

Vintage Baby cards

Hello dear friends, its Evgenia Petzer with you today. Being a mom to three boys, I can’t get enough of a baby theme! One of my all time favourites! And the Vintage Baby collection- I am cutting and cutting it again.

I will start with the baby boy card. I decided to add some turquoise color as a little contrast…

Some die  its, the heart border is cut from the felt, so it gives that little extra soft touch to the project.


some close ups:

Love those air balloons, I have fussy cut it from the paper from the same collection.

Lots of beads, pearls, some die cuts and gorgeous chipboard

Hello and Happy Thursday!

“I Wish” is a beautiful a versatile new collection from Maja. At first glance it appears to be a Christmas or Winter collection but as you can see I created a page about LOVE. I used an engagement photo of my daughter and new son in law and the papers make this photo pop from the page! Just complete perfection in this collection, for sure!

Longing for Summer

Hi there! I am currently working with the new beautiful collection “I wish“, but unfortunately I have not finished a card yet… But I would like to share this card instead, and I promise a Christmassy card next time 😉 Here I have used the gorgeous collection Summertime, and some of the blue colours.


I will give you the list of the papers used in the end of this post.


I have coloured up an Magnolia image (Tilda in the Wind from the Sea Side Collection 16). I have used Distress Ink for my colouring.


The metal corner is from WOC, and I have coloured it with white Gesso. The white spots are made with Fran-Tage Shabby White.


Bow die from Magnolia. Spots in Tildas hair are liquid pearls.


Beautiful texts on the tags from Stempelglede.


I think the Autumn is cozy, but still miss the Summer. It is so lovely to have a long holiday, and be  able to take trips here and there. Be in the sun, and feel the warm breeze.


Here are the beautiful papers used:

Thank you so much for visiting the blog today!

Jennifer Snyder here for the second day to feature our wonderful Facebook fans.  These are followers who regularly share their art by “tagging ” us on Facebook.  What do I mean by “tagging” and how does one actually “tag” Maja Design?  Great questions.
What Does It Mean to “Tag” on Facebook
“Tagging” is a great way to share on Facebook.
When I tag someone on a Facebook post, it means the post I created on my timeline will also appear on that person’s timeline.  Let’s say I want to add a beautiful photo of my husband to my timeline. I want my husband to see it so I will tag my husband in my post.  At that point, my post will be shares on his timeline  for all his friends and followers to see. You can “tag” people and you can “tag” companies as well.  If I post a card using Maja Design, I can “tag” Maja Design and the artwork will appear in Maja’s Facebook page.
How to “Tag” on Facebook
Tagging is easy.  I’ll stick to the example of my husband.  As I am writing my Facebook post, I can start typing his name and list of names will usually appear for me to select.  Once selected, the “tagged” name will have a highlighted color – mine “tag”appears as blue type. “Tagging” a company requires you to simply type @ before the name.  So I would type @Maja Design, and a list of names should appear to select.  That’s all there is to “tagging”.
“Tagging” is a Great Way to Share on Facebook
The great thing about “tagging” Maja Design is that you do not need to make multiple posts.  You simply need to make just one post to your timeline and you are done.  That one “tag” means the wonderful folks at Maja Design get to see your work as well as all the Maja fans around the world.  Now the whole world can admire and be awestruck over your amazing talent and your clever design.  You are an instant  crafting “rock star”!
Today I would like to acknowledge the artwork of some wonderful artists who regularly “tag” Maja Design.
“My name is Pia Baunsgaard – in scrap world is my nickname piabau. I live 20 km outside Copenhagen, Denmark. I make most card but also like to decorate boxes, make albums and home decor. I love the combination of all blue and brown colors. I find it difficult to choose a particular favorite from Maja design papers because I think each is unique, I love these papers.”

You can find more of Pia’s work on her blog: piabau.blogspot.dk

Marie lives in Aalesund, Norway. She prefers to make cards but also enjoys boxes and mini albums. As you can tell from the images posted below, she likes pastels. Among her favorite colors to use are offwhite/white and pink,blue or purple. Marie says it’s almost impossible to pick a favorite Maja collection but since I made her, she choose Vintage Summer Basics and Vintage Autumn Basics for the gorgeous colours and prints.

You can find Marie’s blog right here.

“My name is Wendy Scholten, I am 34 years old. I live in the netherlands in a small town called Kwitsheul. I’m married to Peter and have a little girl, Lisa, who is almost 3 years old. I have been scrapbooking since 2005 and never stopped since. I like to make lay-outs, canvasses, mini albums and also like to alter objects. And I love to use a lot of embellishments as well as lace. Wendy’s favorite collection from Maja Design is vintage summer basics!”

You can see more of Wendy’s creativity on her blog: www.mysweetcreativelife.blogspot.nl
