Good morning, dear Maja friends, welcome to the blog today ūüôā

March is the traditional month for Confirmations in Poland, but due to the pandemic everything has been affected and many events have been cancelled or delayed. And so I’m sharing this Confirmation card today, almost two months later than usual ūüôā

I used the Celebration collection to make the card. I think these patterns and colours make it look both girly and elegant:

I layered the papers and placed a chipboard dove combined with a gold metallic matting circle in the centre.

The layers are shaped in curves which add both interest and subtle lightness to the card design:

I added handmade foamiran flowers in matching colours and iridescent sequins as the finishing touch:

The card is dimensional so I also decorated the card box to match.

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Leanne Creatief, Spellbinders; chipboard: Scrapiniec; foamiran, flower stems, ribbon, sequins: my stash.

I really like the delicate but at the same time festive look of the card! What do you think?

Welcome Sweet Baby

 Hello Maja Design friends.  Jennifer Snyder here with some baby cards made using Coffee in the Arbour collection.   This is the perfect example of how versatile Maja Design collections are for many occasions through the year.

Here are the papers used from the collection: 
Raspberry Cupcake РA and B side 
Blueberry Cupcake – A and B side
The cards are simple but the paper makes then so delicate.  
I kept the sentiment general so I can use a baby shower card, baby gift card, or even a card for a small child’s birthday.¬†¬†The little bunny is a 3D button from Buttons Galore and the die cuts are from Spellbinders.¬†¬†

 

 

Next the pink card is for my step daughter.   She is having her first baby this month and we are all excited to welcome the first grandchild to the world.

I love gingham checked paper and Maja Design’s are the very best because they are soft and subtle.

The 3D buttons on this cards are also from Buttons Galore and the dies used here are also from Spellbinders.

 Thanks for supporting Maja Design!  We value your devotion and time.  
Happy crafting.

Hi Maja Design friends, its Tina with you today to share with you my next project. I wanted to create something vibrant and happy to share with you today because I feel we all need a little uplifting at the time in the world.

This is “The best place”……

As you can probably tell I have used the new release “Little Street Cafe” for the inspiration of this project. I love the colours of this collection. They really push me to use brighter colours and I love a good challenge. I decided on using a black and white photo of my youngest daughter to make things a little easier. I have used the patterned papers “The best place” and “Hot drinks”. I took the barcode strip from “The best place” and cut it and used this for my title. Easy. Love that these pieces can be used as I hate to waste paper.

 

¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† “The best place”

¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†“Hot drinks”

¬† ¬† I added texture to my background using a Dusty Attic Stencil and Crackle Paste in white. I added more layers of the gorgeous “Hot drinks” and adhered these to the top section of my page. These pieces were distressed a little and also layered up using some old chipboard pieces. I have used some Dusty Attic chipboards to help embellish my page. These pieces were all dressed similarly using white gesso and crackle paste. I used the Little Street Cafe patterned paper “Tea please” for the backing of my little chipboard window.

¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† “Tea please”

And around this I added in some tea stained muslin. Once I added in the muslin I then decided on adding more orange tones to my project to keep it bright and happy. I did this by colouring around my photo area using some pigments in gold.

I also added in a little random stamping using 49andMarket’s Stitching stamps and some numbers.

Above you can see that I also added in some Rafia in the natural colour to hold the frame in place on my project. I added in some gorgeous 49andMarket florals in pinks and soft cashmere. These were dry brushed with a little white gesso to tone the colours. I also added in some splatters of white gesso and pink acrylic paint. I highlighted some of the bluebell chipboard foliage with Star Dust stickles to keep my project sparkling and then I was completed.

Well I hope that this post has bought some happiness to your day. Keep smiling and stay safe.

 

Happy flower girls

Welcome creative friends!

I was inspired to create a mixed media layout as memory on a beautiful vacation last year

to Madeira, it’s a beautiful island situated in the north Atlantic Ocean.

We visited the Flower Festival in spring.
There was an enchanting flower parade, where people danced happily through the streets.

A sea of colours, shapes and scents, simply unforgettably beautiful.

¬†Always suitable for a spring or flowery theme is the latest paper amazing collection ‘ Little street Cafe’

¬†I used the paper sheet ‘Something sweets’ as background together with ‘The best place’.¬† Matching the flowery theme I added some chipboards from Dusty Attic, some remnants of lace, and some Prima Marketing embellishments and flowers to the mixed media layout.

 Thanks for your visit!
Stay safe everyone and take care of yourselves and your loved ones…

Happy Easter
