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

I have a birthday exploding box to share, for a certain lady who celebrates her 40th birthday today 🙂

The box is made with the Vintage Romance collection which I simply love for the delicate flowery patterns and a soft colour palette! I used pinks, mauve and green to create a feminine and elegant look. The lid is decorated with a flower bouquet and some butterflies:

When you lift the lid the box opens and reveals the inside with decorated walls:

One of the walls features a stamped and embossed lady cameo with the birthday date:

Another one has a pocket for some money gift:

In the centre I put a chipboard cake that I decorated with washi tape and mini roses:

As you can see, the main decorative motives of the box are roses and butterflies and I think Maja Design papers provide a perfect background for them. What do you think?

And here’s what I used for the box:

Maja Design papers:

Other: box base: Latarnia Morska; chipboard cake: Wycinanka.pl; dies: Spellbinders; stamp: Waltzing Mouse Stamps; flowers: Prima.

 

That is all for today, thank you very much for visiting and don’t forget to drop by tomorrow for more inspiration!

See you soon 🙂

 Hello.  Jennifer Snyder with you today sharing my backpack card.  This is perfect for the back-to-school preparations that many families are doing this time of year.
The collection I am using is from Denim & Girls.  I love this collection because its a little flirty, fun and still playful.
Here are the papers used from the collection:
Floral Top ( A and B side)
Loose Fit (A and B side)
Awesome
The backpack is a die from Spellbinders.  It’s fun because the design can be used for anyone; boys , girls,
teachers and administrators.

The darling flap of the backpack opens to reveal all the supplies packed inside with love.  I also added an encouraging sentiment.  

Thanks for stopping here.  Happy crafting.

Hi everyone! I hope you are fine. I am back with some more Christmas inspiration for you today, another coffee filter card using the lovely Home for the Holidays collection.

Again I have tried to captured the brown and blue colours from the papers in my colouring. I use Distress ink, re-inkers and Markers for my colouring. I stamp on Bockingford watercolour paper and uses syntetic brushes size 0 and 00.

The stamps and dies are from Magnolia.

Under you see the simple card that I have put inside the coffee filter to write a Christmas greeting on. I have sewed with my sewing machine on all the paper edges.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

With love,

Hope is Never Lost

Hello Maja fans!

Today, I would like to share a new layout made for my July inspiration using papers from the gorgeous ”Vintage Summer Basics” collection. As usual, I’ve also used 49 and Market flowers, Dusty Attic chipboard and Finnabair moulds to embellish my page and achieve a romantic and elegant feeling.

As always, I found my photo on Pinterest and before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I used the ”Minnen” paper and made several layers behide my photo with the cards from the back side of the same paper. To start, I applied a coat of clear gesso and then, I created texture with the Finnabair Frosty Pearl icing paste and a stencil. When the paste dried, I used the Lindy’s Gang Sea Grass Green spray to add color.

Next, I heat embossed the chipboards with the Stampendous Aged Ivory embossing enamel.

Then, I layered all the gorgeous elements around my photo and added in some 49 and Market flowers.

Papers used:

I hope you enjoyed my project!

Until next time happy crafting!

 

Christmas in July

Hi everyone! Are you ready for a Christmas post today? I have made some Christmas cards, and I will show you them in my next coming posts. I know it’s a bit early, but Christmas is coming before you know it 🙂 I have used some gorgeous papers from the collection called Home for the Holidays.

The card is actually made with a coffee filter. And I have decorated the sides with christmassy Maja papers.

The image is coloured with Distress Inks, to match the colours of the papers.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the image and text, plus dies are from Magnolia. I have added some corrugated paper and cheese cloth behind the image. Behind the flowers I have added sisal gras.

Under you get a sneak peek of the cards to come 😉 I have made a serie with Home for the Holidays papers and coffee filters. Hope it inspires you!

Here are the papers used:
