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

February is all about love, so today I bring you a Valentine card I made using the Little Street Cafe collection:

I used the gate fold card base and decorated the front panels with layered papers and hand-coloured stamped images of a boy and girl kissing. As the background panel is busy with flowers, I placed the figures upon a glitter heart to make them more visible:

When you untie the ribbon the card opens…

…to reveal the inside panel with a stamped and embossed motives: a red sentiment heart against golden hearts background. I used the masking stamping technique to achieve this effecct. I also decorated the inside flaps with chipboard flourish corners to stabilise the card and help it keep its shape:

There’s also some space left to write your name in ūüėČ

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other:

stamps and chipboard: Agateria; die: CreaLies; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; acrylic glitter stones: Prima; ribbon: Rayher.

I do like how the card turned out, vibrant and cheerful – what do you think?

See you soon!

Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

How nice of you to visit the blog today, I am so sorry for missing my last post on the 18th but our little princess doesn’t sleep anymore during the day since mid January! So I didn’t have something new to show you all¬†{I am not complaining}. I was asked by Renea from¬†Renea Bouquets to be her guest designer for the month February, March & April. And I off course said yes on that because her products are really amazing, a delight to work with and they really coordinate with the lovely Maja design papers. Don’t you think so too?

For this layout I had a beach theme in mind with the lovely teal and cream papers from the “Denim & Friends collection. I totally went for the distressed look for the borders on this page {used distress oxide -vintage photo-} I also used that on the beautiful boards. The beautiful boards frames Victorian Scroll Frame & 2 Accents are treated with rust effect past by finnabair and later on I added the Blue Lagoon wax to give it the teal look to match my flowers.

On the background sheet {Fashion} I added a stamp and a splatter stencil to give it that beachy feeling. The pictures I used are from our vacation to Spain back in 2010 {doesn’t Kevin look cute??} Oh and boy am I in love with those amazing dragonflies aren’t they the best {Tiny Treasures Suncatcher Teal Dragonflies}

On the background paper I also sprayed with some different colors of¬† Lindy’s sprays that matched my papers. To finish of my layout I also added some art stones and some gorgeous¬†No hole seafoam glass Microbeads¬†by Renea Bouquets. As you see in the last picture the beautiful boards are very thick and nicely cut and you can also leave them untreated as I did with the words moment & smile.

Maja Design papers used: Denim & Friends – Streetwear bs & Fashion bs.

  

Thank you so much for visiting the blog today and I hope I have inspired you to create and show us your beautiful art you can always share your work here: Maja Design Facebook page and I if you like the products I worked with please visit here!

Have a wonderful day & stay safe hugs!

Hello Maja Fans,

January is almost over, so fast, but I am glad that winter is passing so fast.

Anyway I still can not stop but create with Christmas collections, and Winter is Coming is a perfect to use it even you don’t make something for Christmas.

I made 2 cards of different size, but used the same papers.

It was quite easy to do since the colors are really yummy and reminds about berries and Glog hot drinks.

I cut out the flowers from the papers and created the layers using some of my favorite dies.

So I am going to use the cards as a Birthday or Thank you occasion for one of my friends.

 

Products used:

Papers – Winter is Coming

Spellbinders Dies
Prima Marketing Flowers

Hello friends.  Jennifer Snyder here to celebrate dogs.
¬†Pets are so important in our lives.¬† They are family members and our best friends so I think it’s important to reach out and celebrate when someone I know adds a pet to the family or has to say farewell.
Today’s cards uses two collections, Miles Apart¬†and a sheet from Holiday in the Alps.¬† I also used the monochrome solid color sheet from the fabulous coordinating Monochrome collection, Shades of Miles.
Here’s a list of the 12×12 sheets used from the collections:
Miles Apart – Miss you (B side)
Miles Apart – Phone Call
Miles Apart  РStay Home
Miles Apart – Safe and Sound
Holiday In the Alps – Winter Night
Miss you-bsA phone callStay home-bs
Safe & sound-bsWinter night-bs
I created cards for boy and girl dogs.¬† No I’m not sure if people care, but I certainly try to be considerate of the owners sensitivity.¬† If I know the dog is a boy, I’m going to try to be mindful.¬† ¬† That’s just me.
The dies used in the cards today are an old classic die from Spellbinders (Pawing Around – Dog).¬† Isn’t that a sweet die?
The stamped sentiment is from Stampendous called Puppy Frames.

 

Thanks for stopping here today.  Happy Crafting
