Goodmorning lovely Maja Fans,

It’s been lovely weather here in my country up to 25 degrees eventhough, all the leaves are falling from the trees and we have the prettiest colors of Autumn it is nice to not wear you jacket again in October. Sadly it was for just three days because today it’s raining again. For today I have a 12×12 layout using two pretty Maja Design collections “Summertime” & “Denim & Friends” and I am showcasing Camilla her twins {I can not get enough of using their cute pictures <3 }….These pictures are taken in Venice, a city I would love to visit someday.

I have also used some of the monochromes of Denim & Friends {the aqua sheet}….I treated my chipboard with different mediums such as wax, gesso, rust paste, ink & spray. I stamped on my background with different clear stamps by 49 and Market also the flowers are by the same company.

Here is a paper bag I have decorated with gorgeous papers from the collection I wish.

I-wish-P

Only days ago I came back from a holiday in beautiful Croatia! I stayed in a beautiful small village called Cavtat, just outside the city Dubrovnik. I was told that the people in Dubrovnik first settled down in Cavtat, before they had to escape and settled down in Dubrovnik. I guess thats why they built that fantastic city wall -to keep the enemies away. In Croatia it was still Summer, and blue sky every day! Inspite of that I manage to get the flu and sinusitis. Luckily this happened the day before we went home, so I really enjoyed my time there.

But because of all this, I had no new card to show you. This paper bag was published in the magazine Ett Trykk last February. But I have saved it for the blogs when it was time to show some winter/Christmassy inspirations. I have made it to show my style of crafting.

The image from Magnolia is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers.

I have decorated with different types of flowers, cheese cloth, wycinanka, die cuts and pearls.

I have added some Frantage around the image, which is matching the colours of the papers perfectly. The edges are sewed with my sewing machine.

Hello, dear friends! Welcome to the Maja Design Blog. It’s Nancy here, with a new card to share. I may have mentioned previously that I love autumn. I can barely wait for that hint of chill in the air and nature’s lavish display of rich colors. This is when I spend my days with Maja Design’s breathtaking Walking in the Forest paper collection. I find that this collection truly embraces the inspiring hues of the season, which is what I’m aiming for with today’s card.

Each design paper is carefully distressed, layered, and stitched. The sentiment stamp has been on my desk just waiting for fall to arrive!

A die cut wreath forms an anchor for the plethora of leaves, berries, and flowers as they tumble down the front of the card.

A 3

A twine bow is tucked in along with the florals.

Time for Snowmen and Christmas

Hello Maja Design friends.  Jennifer Snyder here to share a Christmas card I made by combining two Maja Design holiday collections: Maja Design – A Gift For You and Maja Design – Vintage Winter .

I love that the collections can often be used together.  That’s part of the magic of Maja Design.  It’s  always fun when you can make the most of the products and paper you purchase.  That’s the added value of Maja Design collections.   While some of the papers in the Holiday/Christmas collections certainly have images that are “themed ” for the holidays, the B sides of the papers offer prints that can be used for any occasion.
 The papers I used are shown in the image above and are as follows:
My darling snowman die is from Memory Box dies.  I think it’s adorable.   Accented with some Flowers,  pine branches and he’s all set for the Holidays.
And one last close up from a different angle so you can see the dimension of my card.

Thank you for choosing  to spend your time at the Maja Design blog.  We treasure that.
