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

February is in full bloom and St. Valentine’s Day approaching quickly 🙂 And since cards play a major role in this holiday, I  bring you two samples for inspration:

 

I made both cards using the Miles Apart collection and focused on blending my embellishments into the background papers. And so, in the first card I cut the paper so that the top of the printed house is visible, and arranged die cut motives of clouds and a balloon so that they look as if floating above the house. Then I filled the remaining space with die cut letters that I arranged like a crossword puzzle, and mini heart sequins:

In the other card I incorporated the flower cluster into the bouquet printed in the background paper. The flowers, both printed and dimensional, are a subtle companion to the glitter foam heart with toothpick handles 🙂 I finished the card off with a stamped sentiment and opalescent sequins:

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: My Favourite Things, Marianne Design, Little B; stamp: Agateria; punches: DpCraft; sequins: my stash.

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

Hello Maja Fans,

I’ve got a bunch of new cards I made with Bohemian Harmony collection

I enjoy these new papers, so floral and gypsy at the same time.

I made a few layers and added a few fussy cutting flowers

I also added a few ready flowers , to make the embellishments  more dimensional.

But most of all I like the images I used from Snapshots paper sheet.

The quotes I used for my cards are also from the pieces with product info, so handy.

I am looking forward to create more with this awesome collection, hope you have already tried it too.

Hello Sweet Maja fans,

Lenet here and this time I bring you this Thank You  card .

This card is made with Maja Designs latest collection Bohemian Harmony. I used the 6×6 inch collection .

I just looove it, the bleu and warm brown colors are such a great combination andthe patterns of course as well.

As an early birthday present my hubby got me a Spellbinders glimmer hotfoil system.

I never really was into this foil and glimmer stuff but I love this one! It’s so much fun so now I’m collecting dies and foil for it.

I used it on this card. The sentiment and the frame are made with it.

The flowers are from 49and market and the ribbon is from my own stash.

I hope you like my card.

Thank you for visiting and  stay safe .

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

Today I bring you another project made using the latest collection, Bohemian Harmony – a birthday card in the boho style 🙂

It’s a very simple card with neutral ecru and beige background with beautiful subtle patterns of the Boho papers. I decorated the flower cluster with punched tabs, crystal twigs and linen string:

Then I added a mini macrame I made using thick cotton thread and a toothpick 🙂

I finished the card off with a chipboard sentiment covered with opalescent glitter and glitter sequins.

I really like the way it turned out, even my first macrame ever 😉 Beautiful papers in the background helped to create a delicate card in neutral colours.

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Prima; vintage ribbon: Wild Orchid Crafts; punches: DpCraft; chipboard: Fabryka Weny; string, thread, sequins: my stash.

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

Chocolate Boxes For Grandparents

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

On January 21st and 22nd we celebrate Grandparents Days in Poland. Any kid blessed with grandparents knows how much they mean for them, and especially in Poland grandparents are often very much involved in upbringing of the young generation, looking over grandchildren when parents go to work. There’s no gift that would equal they amount of love and care grandparents share with their families, but I’m sure anything handmade would be of great value for them 🙂 And so for this incoming celebration I created a set of chocolate boxes:

I made the boxes using the Bohemian Harmony collection, perfect for both feminine and masculine projects, with this trendy eco boho vibe to them 🙂 For the Grandma box I used the flower bouquet patterned paper that provided beautiful background for the hearts pattern I added with a stencil, the flower cluster and embossed sentiment:

I decorated the box for Grandpa with gears pattern upon the striped pattern paper, the flower cluster with newspaper print and metal leaves to make it look more masculine 🙂 linen string and matte gold sequins:

Inside the boxes, apart from the chocolate pocket, I included tags for writing in wishes:

I really like the way these turned out, serving both and gift packaging and best wishes cards 🙂

Here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Prima, Petaloo; leaves: Prima, my stash; stamps, stencils, chipboard: Agateria; ribbon: Rayher; string, sequins: my stash.

Wishing all the best to all Grandparents around the world – that’s all for today, see you later!
