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!
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:
Girls in Jeans
Jeans & Shirt
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.
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.
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!
