Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
Although the pandemic caused closure of schools worldwide, it doesn’t mean studying stopped as well (but perhaps pupils aren’t so happy about it 😉 ). And of course it doesn’t mean teachers stopped working. Running online classes is no less demanding and many claim they spend even more time getting the lessons ready than at school. Most students in Poland won’t be returning to schools before the summer break, but they still want to express their gratitude towards their techaers who help them deal with this difficult situation we’re all in. And so I made two cards thay say “Thank you!”:
They are larger than my usual cards, measuring 15×20 cm (so twice the regular size), I guess these pupils are particularly grateful! 🙂 One is for the headmaster:
…and the other for a Polish language teacher:
The card for the headmaster features the Little Street Cafe collection and a hand-coloured stamped images of an owl and some books that I also heat-embossed with gold ep. I added a flower cluster and die cut sentiment:
For the Polish language teacher card I used the Celebration collection. The focal point is a book I made from scraps of paper and decorated with flowers made from foamiran and an embossed chipboard sentiment. I also added a beautiful letter-patterned ribbon to look like a bookmark going across the card:
I hope the teachers would like the cards as much as I liked working on them!
Here’s what I used:
Maja Design papers:
Flower giveaway bs
Mono Celebration-Muted Fuchsia bs
Mono Celebration-Muted Fuchsia
Other: stamps: Lemonade, Agateria; dies: Leane Creatief, Nellie Snellen, Marianne Design; flowers: Prima, handmade; chipboard: Wycinanka.pl; embossing powder: Blue Fern Studios; enamel dots: DP Craft; border punch: EK Success; ribbon: Eight.pl.
That’s all for today, stay healthy at home, and see you soon!
The beautiful floral paper on the first card is Rose Garden from Coffee in the Arbour .
If you are not familiar with the Monochrome collections, they are perfectly coordinated with the colors in the Maja Design collections and are made to mix and match. The “Shades of Cafe” offer solid cardstock that can be used on a variety of the Maja Design collection.

Welcome Maja friends!
Today a new inspiration layout with our latest paper collection ‘Little Street Cafe’.
It’s so wonderful to enjoy a good cup of coffee with a delicious piece of cake in beautiful spring weather. Here you can only do this on the balcony or terrace at the moment, but when the sun is shining and with a good book in your hand, the day immediately looks friendlier again.
I used the ‘Plum’ monochrome paper from the suitable collection ‘Shades of Cafe’. Matching some hand torn strips of ‘Coffee al fresco’, ‘ The best place’ and ‘Something sweet’. I cut out the main motif with the beautiful lady and inserted her as the center point with 3D pads, matching the current corona rules with sufficient distance ;-).
That was a joke because we don’t have to keep our distance to coffee and cake yet,
although that would certainly be better for a perfect bikini figure :-).
some close up’s
I hope I could inspire you to take time again for the beautiful things in life!
Hi everyone! I am back with a frame card I have made. I hope you all are fine<3
I have used papers from both collections above for this card. The frame is coverd with a sheet from Denim & Friends, but the rest I have used are from the Little Street Cafe Collection.
I wanted to capture this sweet Tilda out walking outside late at night. It is a starry and bright sky, and there are some fireworks as she walkes along the lane.
Therefore I found this lovely blue spotted paper from Denim & Friends, for the back. And it fittet so nicely with the Little Street Papers, which I have used to decorate a whole scene.
All the cut outs are made with dies from Magnolia.
White spots here and there are made with white Gesso. It gives the card a touch of shabby look.
The flowers are also made with Maja papers. Behind them I have put some Sissal gras.
The image is painted with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. Soft colours to match the papers.
The depth of the card/frame is one cm. And I have taken some photos of it laying down, to give you a better view of it.
Thank you so much for visiting the Maja blog.
Good morning, dear Maja friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
March is the traditional month for Confirmations in Poland, but due to the pandemic everything has been affected and many events have been cancelled or delayed. And so I’m sharing this Confirmation card today, almost two months later than usual 🙂
I used the Celebration collection to make the card. I think these patterns and colours make it look both girly and elegant:
I layered the papers and placed a chipboard dove combined with a gold metallic matting circle in the centre.
The layers are shaped in curves which add both interest and subtle lightness to the card design:
I added handmade foamiran flowers in matching colours and iridescent sequins as the finishing touch:
The card is dimensional so I also decorated the card box to match.
And here’s what I used:
Maja Design papers:
Mono Celebration-Lavender Rose
Mono Celebration-Lavender Rose-bs
Other: dies: Leanne Creatief, Spellbinders; chipboard: Scrapiniec; foamiran, flower stems, ribbon, sequins: my stash.
I really like the delicate but at the same time festive look of the card! What do you think?
