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

Mother’s Day is celebrated throughout the world, though on various days. In Poland the celebration comes on May 26th, so it’s high time to prepare some handmade cards for the occasion 🙂

I made the card using our latest collection, Everyday Life – despite the name it’s perfect for special days too 🙂

In the first card I used mini flowers patterns for the background and added a chipboard frame and some lace. On top of that background I put images cut out of one of the elements sheets, added gold thread and  a chipboard sentiment that I coloured with markers into the ombre effect. I also covered the heart image with glitter:

For the second card I chose the beautiful rose-patterned paper and applied a heart pattern using a stencil and modeling paste. Then I filled the heart with mini roses in colours that matched the paper palette. Then I attached the same chipboard sentiment as in the previous card, but this time I only covered it with opalescent glitter, I completed the design with delicate lace and string bows:

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard pieces, stencil, paste: Agateria, lace: my stash.

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

Hello  sweet maja fans,

Lenet herre and today I bring you this congratulate card for some one who just has a new home.

Both our daughter and son are trying to find a home for themself, but because there is a big shortage for homes I think it can take a while before the finally find one.

Of course I hope they find one soon and I can sent this card to either one of them on thier new home adress.

 

I made this card using the Bohemian Harmony Collection. The chippies I used are from scrapaholics, I colored them with acrylic paints.

The stamps are som golden oldies from Waltzing mouse.

First Communion Cards

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

May is traditionally the month of First Communions in Poland, and as it’s a very important celebration for many kids, cards for the occasion are hugely popular. And so today I bring you two cards I made, for a boy and a girl.

While I used the beautiful Miles Apart collection for my cards, I focused on papers you would normally not see, or just not use at all 😉 because I used only one patterned paper, and the main background is with a Monochrome set paper, while for the decorative border on both cards I used the back sides of signature strips that you normally cut off and throw away 🙂 I love that Maja Design uses even those tiny scraps to give you beautiful patterns!

As you can see, I used the same design for both cards, and they differ only by border patterns and main images of boy and girl.

Apart from the background, I used the Monochrome papers for the leaves in the flower clusters too:

And so, although Monochrome sets that go with many of the Maja collections are meant to complement the patterned papers, they also make beautiful background by themselves, as each Monochrome set is designed with their own subtle patterns.

Here’s what I used for the cards:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: I Love Craft, Spellbinders; punch: DpCraft; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; stamps: Agateria.

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

Hello Maja design friends.  This is Jennifer Snyder sharing a giant hello using Maja Design’s wonderful “Little Street Cafe” collection and coordinating Monochromatic collection, “Shades of Cafe”.

Many collections has complimenting card stock solids that perfectly match the patterned papers.

Here are the patterned papers I used in this card: “Hot Drinks”, “Always Time”.

 

I love this collection.  It’s a personal favorite with it’s rich and robust colors.  I paired the papers with a bold die from Spellbinders.  My card has also been accented with some flat sided gems from Buttons Galore and More.

 

Thanks for stopping here for a visit.
