Hello dear creative friends!

I love it to let me inspire from the nature and the seasons with all what this time make me very special for me.

In the autumn time we were often in the forest and collected mushrooms, surprisingly there were even some.

I love this autumn mood in the forest, everything is wrapped in a special light, slightly veiled, mysterious and on particularly beautiful days you can also see the hot-air balloons in the sky, for which our dog always has great respect, because they make such strange noises for him.

Maybe you are still in autumn rather than winter mood,

 then let yourself be inspired by the Maja Design autumn collections.

I used some papers from the ‘Walking in the forest’, I love this beautiful warm colours with natural autumn motifs such like foliage, mushrooms, berries …and a perfect addition for me the paper sheet ‘Wood’ from ‘Denim and Friends’.

Hello Maja Friends,

it’s Elena here today to share a few cards made for the men.

Actually it’s a challenge for me to create something not feminine, with no flowers and no fussy cutting. But Denim & Friends collection is something that you can easy craft

I used the Snaphots images and combined the patterned papers with the Monochromes for my background and die cuts.

I like it’s Warn Denim feeling with the classy dots, stripes and plaid patterns.

I\ve just added the stitching to look it more “handmade”

Hello , Lenet here .

Today it’s my turn to give you some inspiration .

I made this layout for you to show you how versatile the Majadesign collections are.

For this autumn-ish layout I used a combination of papers from the Denim and Friends and Denim and Girls collections.

Two of my favorite collections and the mix so well together.  The wood panels are cut out of  the Denim and friends -Wood .

I used a lot of filigree bronze embellishments on this ,  inspired by the  the crown the woman in the picture is wearing .

I added some Rose Triads pure sheen gemstones from Nuvo to give it all some bling and royalty.

The flowers I used are from Prima marketing and 49Market.

All together I’m very happy with the way this Layout turned out.

I hope you like my inspiration for this week hope to see you back next time.

Make sure you come back later to catch some inspiration from the other Maja girls.

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

Ah, masculine projects! Who finds them easy to make? Even being the only woman in the house doesn’t make me any smarter. But luckily Maja Design has one of the best masculine papers and therefore Deim&Friends is my all-time favourite 🙂 And since we are going to celebrate Boy’s Day soon (in Poland it’s on September 30th), I decided to make some masculine cards.

I was inspired by the Snapshots paper from the collection, in which you can see the torsos, but not the faces – and having a men’s outfits dies in my collection, I thought it would be fun to follow the pattern 🙂 And it was, really, a great fun to put pieces together like in the old days of making paper dolls!

The first card is more elegant and would be perfect for birthday or graduation. I assembled a suit with a shirt and bowtie and placed it upon the background that reminds me of a pattern on my husband’s silk scarf. Then I added some glam with midnight blue glitter on the chipboard sentiment:

The other card would be great for a teenager, a birthday or congratulations card:

I die cut pieces to assemble a casual shirt and die-cut the number in it. Then I added a signature strip with the words “You rock”, a star charm and a sentiment matted with metallic copper cardstock:

And I really like the way the cards turned out – simple, but fun and with a touch of glam, as who likes to shine more than our men? 😉

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Marianne Design, Sizzix, Rosy Owl; chipboard: Scrapiniec; string, charm: my stash.

 

What about you? Do you like making masculine projects or suffer if you have to make them?

See you soon!

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

Summer has traditionally been a wedding season and so wedding cards have been in great demand too.  I like to keep a small stash of cards just in case, and therefore today I’m sharing two cards that differ by the colour only:

I kept the design pretty simple, so it would be easy to recreate the card in any colour – I used neutral sand as the background for the stencil heart shape filled with flowers:

I also included a layer of patterned paper, choosing the Comfy sheet from the Denim&Girls collection, as it perfectly corresponds to the leafy heart motif:

I completed the design with acrylic opalescent hearts some cheesecloth and an embossed chipboard sentiment:

The same is true for the other card in the turqouise palette:

In the Denim&Friends collection you will find the Jeans&T-shirt paper that has the same leafy pattern but in turqouise 😉

And I really like the dimension the flowers give:

I like the way they turned out: simple, yet elegant and delicate. What do you think?

Here’s what I used:

Other: stencil: Agateria; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard: Scrapiniec; acrylic hearts, string, cheesecloth: my stash.

 

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