Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer with you today. I have used the lovely Sofiero collection for this card. Its another shabby card, full of pastel colors, some layers, lace, flowers and some stitching.sofiero_maja_blog_petzersome close ups:sofiero_sep2_det1 the flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts.sofiero_sep2_det2 the butterflies I had fussy cut from the vintage spring collection, there is the entire sheet full of butterflies.

I love to fill the bottom part of the card with layers of lays, the real one, or the die cut one, like in this case.sofiero_sep2_det3

Goodmorning Maja Fans,

Autumn is upon us again and here where I live the weather is showing us all the beauty of it! Falling leaves and changing colors but also my least favorite part, the heavy wind and the rainy days. Today is a day like that and I’d love to stay in bed under the warm covers….but I have to go to work in a while! This time I’d like to share a Autumn card with you using all dies and my beautiful Maja Papers. For this card I used different collections but mostly “Walking in the Forest”! All the dies I used where cut out a couple of weeks back but I never used them. I am hooked on leaf dies because you can use them for every occasion and this time it’s a Autumn card. It was really hard to take a picture because it is very windy and I take all my pictures outside….and my card almost flew away…..glad it didn’t though.

This card was made out of leftovers it’s so much fun to sometimes dig into your stash and see what you can make with it. I had leftover papers from both of my paper design teams and every once in a while my neighbor gets all my cut out papers to make Christmas cards and all sorts of other cards and projects. Because I am fortuned enough to be on these amazing paper companies that I’d like to share some of that fortune 😉

Hello our blog friends. Today I would like to present something a little bit different. It is a first chocolate box decorated by me. It’s gonna be a perfect way to say “Thank you” with the sweet surprise inside.

Chocolate Box

Simple and easy composition, cause “Thank you” is the main element here.

When you open the box on the left you will find the chocolate. On the right you can write some wishes, words just from the bottom of your heart. Simple ideas are often the best.

Chocolate Box

Paper base is the box from Eco-Scrapbooking and  chipboard from Scrapiniec. Paper – Summertime Collection from Maja Design of course. My favourite mix of the best products.

Hope you like it. Hugs, Paulina

Hi everyone! Today I will show you a card I made for the magazine Ett Trykk with Maja papers of course;) I have used the beautiful papers from the Sofiero Collection, new edition, and also a Monochromes paper.

Sofiero-P1

The stamps are from Stempelglede. I have painted the butterflies with Distress Ink, re-inkers.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts. And under them I have added some Sissal grass. I just love the spring feeling these papers gives! So maybe this card can brighten up a dark and windy Autumn day.

Here you see the different layers with the lovely Maja papers, doilies, cheese cloth and laces.

Hello, friends! Welcome to the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy here, with a new card to share. The October Mood Board Challenge launched yesterday with projects featuring Denim & Friends in crisp autumn hues. It is such fun working with fall colors, but today I’m using the collection in another way to showcase the versatility. It can be easy to assume it’s primarily a masculine collection, but this card takes us in a completely different direction, with pretty florals and a soft palette.

The base of the card is prepared by distressing, layering, and stitching the design papers. The flowers that comprise the focal point are ones I received last year and rescued from my stash.

A 5

I added a bit of rubber stamping using a script stamp. A length of aged lace, jewel toned sprigs, and a twine bow complete the embellishments.
