Hello our blog fans. Today I would like to show you card in the box. First Communion is a ceremony in some Christian traditions during which a person first receives the Eucharist. Catholics believe this event to be very important and for this occasion godparents used to give some gifts. My today’s inspiration is a one of the ideas how we can pack small gift and make this moment really important for donee.  I bought a ready paper box and decorated with the paper from “Denim & Friends” Collection afterwards.. This set has a many color variations and this time I picked the light beige and turquoise shades. The chipboards came from Scrapiniec. In the end I added some flowers and splashes. Hope you will like my inspiration. Hugs, Pa Paulina

Good morning, dear Visitors, welcome to the Maja Design blog 🙂

After a series of projects I created with the latest Celebration collection I return to one of my all-time favourites, Denim & Friends. I just love the colours and patterns of these papers! And here’s the layout I made:

The design of the page is my version of the clean&simple style 😉 I didn’t want to cover the beautiful background paper too much, so I matted the photo with just a couple of tags and a flower cluster mounted on a chipboard clock face:

I also decorated the paper with some stamping and a delicate brick pattern that I added with a stencil and modeling paste. The art clay angel wing adds some lightness to the darker colours:

I die-cut the layout title from the brown Monochromes set matching the collection – I’m so happy Maja started to release the plain papers sets, they save the pain of sacrificing beautiful patterned papers for matting and small elements 😀

Though it’s not the classic clean&simple page, I still like the way it turned out – light and fresh 🙂 What do you think?

And here’s the list of supplies I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: die: Kesi’art; stamp: My Favourite Things; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; stencil: Tim Holtz; chipboard: Wycinanka, button: Lemoncraft; wing mold: Prosvet.

 

Thank you for visiting today and see you later 🙂

Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

Today I’d like to share some projects I made with my lovely Maja Design papers all the flowers you will see on my projects are all hand made with dies. I love making winter projects although I dislike winter time here in The Netherlands the days are getting colder and the night longer. I love the getting cozy part but the rest not so much. My first project is a 8×8 layout made with different Maja Designs collections.

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

Did you celebrate the World Cardmaking Day last Saturday? I did, and among the cards I made I couldn’t miss using Maja papers! 🙂 And here it is:

But this time I selected the “plain” sides of sheets, as sometimes I like them even more than the patterned ones 😉 I layered two sheets from the Vintage Summer Basics and I simply LOVE how this 1946 sheet gives the perfect pastel shabby background with those white lines! I’m a rather poor media user and I would never ever brush the background myself to get those lines 😀

I added the wreath pattern using a stencil and white texture paste, then mounted the embossed sentiment circle in the centre and surrounded it with flowers. Then I added a lace bow and some bling 🙂

And I really love how dimensional it turned out!

So sometimes those plain papers are as gorgeous as petterned sheets when it comes to a perfect background, don’t you think?

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stencil: Agateria; stamp: Lemonade: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; lace, bling: my stash.

 

Thank you for visiting today and see you later!
