Welcome creative friends!

Have you yet seen our latest amazing paper collection ‘ Miles Apart’ ??

If not – check them out! You’ll love them!

Delightful colours and inspiring motifs, I was immediately in love with the motives.

I think it’s a beautiful mixture of soft colors that are also suitable as background for masculine layouts maybe in grundge style.

I have decided for a 12 x12 layout in vintage style suitable to the grey month November but also to this difficult times for all of us.

 

paper sheets: Stay home and , Hopeful + bs

Twist and Pop Card

Hi there! I am back with a new card. And I have tried to make a Twist & Pop Card, which is my first time. But I understand that they have been popular some time. It was fun to make one, so you should have a go too!

After making some pinkish wedding projects, I have tried to give this card a more Autumn look. This collection is wonderful for that too.

The Magnolia image is coloured with Distress Ink, reinkers and Markers. The sentiment is also from Magnolia. I have cut out the leaves from different Miles Apart papers.

To make this card I have watched Srushti Patil’s tutorial on YouTube, called Twist & Pop Card Tutorial.

Here is how it looks like when it is open. The inside is decorated with yummy Miles Apart papers.

And I have tried to show how it looks like when you close it.

 

 

Almost there ūüôā

 

 

I have painted here and there with white Gesso. In the middle of the sunflowers (and in Tilda’s hair) I have put some liquid pearls. Behind the image there is some cheese cloth.

Some more details from inside of the card. You can decorate it however you want. With images, sentiments ect.

 

 

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Blog!

With love,

For a Boy, a Teenager, a Man

Good morning Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today ūüôā

By common opinion among cardmakers, masculine cards are rather difficult to make. Would you agree? Despite being the only woman in our home, I do struggle when I have to make a card for a man. So once I got into “that” mood, I decided to take advantage of that unexpected mojo and make three birthday cards for three age groups: a baby boy, a teenager and a grown-up man:

For the boy card I used the papers from the Miles Apart collection as the pastel background to a hand-coloured stamped image. I also added a star cut out from one of the mini pad sheets, a plaid ribbon bow, some buttons and a stamed and embossed sentiment circle:

In the card for a teenager I featured the Denim&Friends papers, with a skater image decorated with a metal star charm and a mini flag cut out from a signature strip. I die-cut the sentiment from metallic silver sheet and matted it with a dark navy blue piece to make the whole sentiment pop out:

The last card features the Miles Apart papers again, with a chipboard steampunk heart embossed with various eps for a more rusty look, a metal flower, screw brads and plaid ribbon. I die-cut the sentiment from glitter foam and added some paper flowers too. Can you spot the mini balloons I cut out from one of the sheets? ūüôā

 

Here’s the supply list for my cards:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers, chipboard heart: Prima; dies: Rosy Owl, CreaLies; metal ger: Mitform; metal flower: Craftmania; brads, ribbon: Rayher; acrylic gems: Scrapberry’s.

 

Do you struggle with masculine cards or do you make them with ease? ūüôā

See you soon!

Jolly Winter Snowman Shaker Card

Hello Maja Design friend.¬† Jennifer Snyder here with a jolly snowman shaker card crafted using Maja Design’s classic Christmas collection called, ” Holiday In the Alps”. You can see the collection below along with the individual 12 x 12 sheets I used:¬†Winter Night,¬†Let it Snow,¬†Deers.

Winter nightLet it snowDeers-bs

I really love the warm vintage appeal of the collection.¬† By the smile on the snowman’s face, I think he likes the vintage look as well.¬† Scroll down and I’ll show you how I made the shaker card base.

Shaker Card Base Instructions: 

 

Step 1.¬† “Holiday in the Alps – Let it Snow” is the base of the card.¬†Cut the paper 10in x6 in and crease in the middle at 5 inches.¬† This card is 5in x 6in when folded.

Step 2.¬† The top layer is “Holiday in the Alps – Winter Night” and is slightly smaller than the card base.¬† I die cut a circle¬† in the sheet and inked the edges for definition.

.  

Step 3.  Flip the layer over and add double sided tape around the circle.  This is going to be your window so you need to make sure there are no gaps in the tape .  Cut a piece of tulle (or acrylic) to cover the window.  Secure in place.

Step 4.  Add shaker mix to the center of the card base and glue the window layer in place securely over the shaker mix.   Now you are ready to decorate.

I decorated this shaker card using Spellbinders dies and shaker mix from Buttons Galore and More.

The trees were diecut from”Holiday in the Alps – Deers ” paper.

Happy crafting friends.  Thank you for stopping here to visit.

Goodmorning lovely Maja Design fans,

I sure hope everything goes well with you all, Aren’t you loving the “Miles Apart” collection as much as I do? It’s so shabby chic right up my ally. I have been fussy cutting my brains out lol. For this layout I used another precious picture of Abbey I just can’t stop creating with pictures of her. This was a really easy and quick layout to make because I already did the fussy cutting part during my series I watch on tv. I wanted the picture to stand out in this layout that’s why I kept it clean…..

It was really fun to create this layout, I took half a sheet of the little things and placed a part of distance bsand placed it behind the first one to later on put it on the keeping busy sheet after I distressed it like a mad woman lol….those buttons you see on my layout are actually chipboard pieces that I altered is Maja Design paper.

On the background of my layout I added a stencil with golden crackle paste but before that I first stamped on it with Gabi’s stoic stamp by 49 and Market. After that I sprayed some of my favorite Lindy’s spray to soften up my layout. To make the phrases on my layout stand out a little more I used the black ones by The Dusty Attic and the phrase “The Ultimate Photo” I painted black.

After that I added some flowers by 49 and Market, wishing bubbles and some metal pieces with words on it to finish of my layout….and I stopped but it was hard because I wanted to add more lol.

Maja Design papers used: The little things, Keeping busy, Keeping busy-bs and Distance-bs

   

Thank you so much for being here with us today I hope I have inspired you to take out your Maja Design papers and create with them…..stay safe…… Love
