Hello boys and girlies!

I was inspired to create a new mixed media layout.

 Our summer is very hot and you can only think on cool water,

ice and dreamy beaches with palm trees.

 🙂 A day in paradise 🙂

I used some beautiful papers from our latest ‘Denim & Girls’ paper collection. ‘My favourite Jeans as background and some leftovers for the work with cutting dies.

Have a wonderful summer time!

Happy First Adult Birthday!

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

In some countries the first adult birthday comes when you turn 21, but in many, Poland including, it’s as early as 18. It’s usually an occasion to throw a big party and celebrate entering adulthood while still being entitled to behave like a teenager 🙂 And it’s a great occasion to give a handmade card too, isn’t it?

I was really happy when my all-time favourite collection Denim&Friends got its girly partner 🙂 I love the images sheet, the colours and patterns that refer to and complete the masculine papers. And to celebrate this new addition to the Maja paper family I decided to make the cards with these two collections. Both feature images in the centre of design and navy blue accents.

The girl’s version adds a touch of pink and a bit of glamour with crystal gems and the digits cut out from gold metallic mirror cardstock:

In the card for a boy I added some steampunk elements also die-cut from gold cardstock. Just as in the girl’s card I incorporated the “You’re a star” phrase – in the previous card it was printed in the background paper, here it’s a snippet of the signature strip:

I really like the way the cards turned out – simple but pleasant to the eye 🙂 What do you think?

And here’s what I used:

Maja Desing papers:

Other: dies: Rosy Owl, Joy! Crafts; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; crystals: Prima.

 

And when do you celebrate the first adult birthday in your country?

Hello, Jennifer Snyder here to share a card made using the wonderful and versatile  Denim & Girls collection and the coordinating Monochrome-Shades of Denim collection.
These are the papers I selected from the collection.
Roses
Floral Top
Monochrome – Off White

The papers are versatile because the patterns inspire so many moods – from delicate to bold, calm to dramatic, sporty to feminine and even masculine.  That’s quite amazing for one collection to capture so many moods and feelings.
I went with calm and peaceful.
In addition to Maja Design papers, I used a new Spellbinders die designed by Becca Feeken called Shapeabilities Brillante Rondelle – from the Vintage Treasures collection.
The card has a clean feel with a hint of vintage being embellished with a vintage button and tiny string pearls.

 Thank you for stopping.

I hope you have set aside a bit of  “YOU time” today to enjoy some calm and peace in your life.

Welcome!

Today a new inspiration layout in a romantic summer mood.

Midsummer is already over, but that always reminds me of how we as children walked over flowering meadows

and picked and collected all kinds of things.

We girls have always loved to weave flower wreaths, mostly from daisies or white clover.

 

I used some papers from our latest wonderful paper collection ‘Denim and Girls’

‘Easy Going’;  ‘Lace’; ‘Comfy bs’

 Happy summertime!

Hi everyone! I am back with a Summer card for you. I really hope you are enjoying the Summer. Here in Norway it is raining at the moment. And I wish for some sunny days.

The image from Magnolia is coloured with Distress Ink, on water colour paper. I use a paper called Bockingford 300g. It has a really smooth surface which is perfect for the Distresses. Can you spot which papers I have used? Yes, it is the lovely Denim & Girls papers!

I have cut out the flowers from those papers, ofcourse! Then using dies from Magnolia. I cut out the flowers, then I spray the paper with water, curl them up, and let them to dry. Then you get the crunchy look. I also paint over them with white Gesso.

Under you get a better look of how the card is built up.

And those gorgeous flowers.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog!

With love,
