Hello everyone,

Goodmorning on this lovely Sunday in July, can you believe how fast this year is going we are half way through already. Our little girl turned one year old 4 days ago wow {mommy is getting old lol}! For this layout with Abbey still as my center point as you can imagine.. I used the gorgeous “Little street Cafe” collection combined with the “Celebration” collection {I love the darker colors in this collection} I challenged myself to use more then one pictures so I could capture Abbey’s silly face phase she is such a fun girl but lately she gets angry when we pick her up it must be a phase every kid is going through….Kevin didn’t have that but he is a boy so maybe girls a different.

In this layout I used Abbey her flowered hair band with salmon colored flowers in my layout….I have seen people do that before so I thought well why not me! How are you all doing btw? Hopefully you haven’t lost people that are close to you from this nasty virus…I find it very hard to be at home all day but we have too so much more time to create right? We are on our summer break now just one week left {we have three}….We are painting our house and making it pretty to live in hopefully next year we can go on a nice trip to a warm country or so.

On my layout to can see that I used a text stamp on the background of my pink paper and a stencil of text on the black paper. The chipboard are by The Dusty Attic and the flowers and wishing bubbles are by 49 and Market also I added some prima marketing flowers on this layout.

Behind my pictures and flowers I added some cheesecloth to give my layout a little bit more texture. The sweet memories text I gessod and later on embossed with some black embossing powder by Lindy’s. I really love how this layout turend out. The chipboard leaves are painted with Dusty Attic’s Forrest paint.

I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you so much for your visit! Have a wonderful summer with nice warm weather…here it’s kind of rainy sadly hopefully out last week will be with nice warm weather…love

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

due to the world pandemic many celebrations have been cancelled or postponed. Traditionally, the First Communions month in Poland is May, but since the restrictions have gradually been lifted onyl recently, the season is only beginng now. And this year we have two kids from our family who will receive their Fisrt Communion and so I made cards form them.

I made the card for my husband’s goddaughter using the Little Street Cafe collection, from which I selected mauve purple papers for a bit of colour. I added a stamped girl image and coloured her so that she has the same dark hair as Amelia. I used a beautiful filigree chipboard host matted with gold metallic circle and a flower cluster beneath:

I completed the design with die-cut grapes and vine leaves and added some subtle shine with opalescent sequins:

I used the same card design for my husband’s nephew First Communion card:

He’s blonde, so I coloured the stamped boy image blonde too. I used the sky blue and neutral papers from the Celebration collection:

I like the way the cards turned out: simple but elegant, dimensional but still fitting into an envelope.

Here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Whiff of Joy; chipoard: Scrapiniec; dies: Spellbinders, CreaLies; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts.

 

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and don’t forget to drop by soon for more inspiration!

This collection always feels exotic and rich,  It’s great for any occasion, but is especially wonderful for masculine cards, weddings and anniversaries.  It’s also perfect all year round.
The die used on this card is from Spellbinders.  It’s absolutely perfect for the collection.

 

 

Thank you for stopping here today.  Happy crafting.

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:

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!

Confirmation Card

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:

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?
