Hello sweet Maja fans.

Today it’s my turn again to show you something I made with gorgeous Maja papers .

This time I bring you a Happy Birthday card.

For this card I used two papers from the Vintage Romance collection, Love poetry and When I saw you,

as base I used  Lavender Rose from the Monochromes – Shades of Celebration

 

I took the right upper corner of the piece of paper i had on top and rolled it half way back.

I used A frame of tattered angels en put in halfway behind the roll , added some flowers and finished it of with some pearl swirls  from want 2 scrap.

I used some sentiment stamps from Paper Sweeties for the birthday message.

the label I used for the sentiment is made using a corner of a spellbinders die

Close up of the roll on top, and  on of the flowers with the frame underneath  it.

Thank you very much for visiting today, I hope I have given you some inspiration with my Birthday card.

 

Let’s Celebrate!

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to our blog!

Today I am going to celebrate with you 🙂 And therefore I have some birthday cards:

And what better collection to use for such festive cards than our own Celebration? 🙂 I mixed papers from the regular and small pads.

 

The first card features a sweet cupcake:

I layered purple and beige papers and used the rich dark brown floral paper for the background, matting the die-cut cupcake with a contrasting sand Monochrome sheet. I added matching polka dot ribbon and a metal charm in the shape of a teapot. Here’s the birthday tea party 🙂

The stamped sentiment says in Polish: A lot of happiness and sweetness. How fitting!

 

For the second card I used a dreamcatcher motif:

For this card I selected the blue papers of the collection and composed the dreamcatcher combining a doily and feather dies:

I also added vintage ribbon and a button and finished off the design with gem stones, pearls and glitter:

 

I made the third card to…well, use up the leftovers 😉

I used the tiniest bits to punch the doily border and die-cut the banners. Then I used larger pieces to make the background:

The patterned papers make the beauty of the card, so other decorative elements include only flowers, pearl border and some delicate stamping:

 

Here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Marianne Design, X-cut; punch: Martha Stewart; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; stamps: Lemonade, the ScrapBerry’s; bling, pearls: Creative Expressions; glitter: Ranger, Nuvo.

 

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

Welcome creative friends!

Kerstin is back with a new springtime layout.

After a very long cold period, it finally gets warmer and the daffodils in my garden start to bloom. I love this time, finally, more sun shines again and gives hope for new life. There is a lot to do in the garden right now, but you should also let all five go straight and just enjoy this short time.

This time I used a monochrome paper as background, I love this neutral papers because

you will have so many opportunities to create a selfmade mixed media background.

I used a brick stencil with white gesso, old music paper sheets, stamps, leftovers from craft paper,

Glimmer Mist Spray (Sunflower) from Tattered Angels, Distress Ink Stain from Ranger,

paper frames from La Blanche and wonderful flowers from 49 and Market.

some details

I hope you like this little spring layout inspiration

with monochrome paper from the ‘Shades of Celebration’ collection,

I will return on 18th of April with a

Tutorial 🙂

Happy crafting!

Jennifer Snyder here with you today.  
It’s March and time to start thinking of spring blooms. 


Maja Design can help get you in the mood for spring with some gorgeous delicate prints from the new collection, Celebration  This stunning new collection was created to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Maja Design..  Congratulations.  May you have many more years of success. 


In addition to the patterned papers, Maja Design has also created a Monochrome collection, called Shades of Celebration,  consisting of  12×12 solids that perfectly matches the Celebration collection.  



I’ve used the Celebration sheet called Jubilee as the base of my card.  The paper sample is shown above.  It’s simply gorgeous.

I also used a piece from the Monochrome collection to make the Spellbinders Hanna Elise Frame diecut pop.  It’s a dramatic, lovely effect.

Thanks for stopping.  

Winged Wishes

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

I’m still playing with our latst release, the Celebration collection – it’s so versatile and elegant that your creative process is just pure pleasure 🙂 And here’s the card I created:

This time I focused on the blue shades of the collection and chose the classy Art Deco swirls of the Festivities sheet for my background. Then I delicately brushed glitter paste along its edges and I matted it with a Monochrome paper in matching colour and a delicate polka dot Party paper.

I arranged my composition of flowers and art clay wings in the centre:

I stamped my sentiment onto a strip of vellum and heat-embossed it with golden ep. I also added glittery drops. liquid pearls dots and cheesecloth to finish my card:

The card turned out pretty dimensional, therefore I added a cardstock card box decorated with gold metallic washi tape with a dots pattern:

I really like the way it turned out, light and delicate, perfect for a romantic soul 🙂

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Prima; stamp: Lemonade; embossing powder: Ranger; glitter paste: Creative Expressions; wings, glitter drops, cheesecloth: my stash.

 

And that is all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later 🙂
