Hello sweet Maja friends, I hope you have just a great summer as I have.
We have lots of sun for a while now with very nice warm temperatures. Only thing not so nice is that is that my craft room is at the attic and it’s super hot up there now.
But I did manage to make you this card. I used the summer crush collection for it.
I cut three pieces of paper one a little smaller than the other one , distressed the edges and stuck them together with foamtape..
Took two straws and tied them together with a piece of lace and seambinding some flowers , two art boubles , a bit of sisal , a sentiment, and glued it all on the card.
Than I added a little paper texture paste on the leaves , some withe splashes with white ink and voila, my card is done.
Hope you enjoy it and gives you some inspiration to create your own card.
Thank you very much for your visit. Make shure you come back tomorrow to see some more lovely work from one of the other MajaGirls.
Good morning, Maja friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
The summer holidays started in most countries with school education 😉 And so many of us realise their travellin dreams and go to see the world. Even though nowadays smartphones are mostly used to collect and share memories, there are still many traditional freaks like scrapbookers and journal artists who prefer to keep accounts of their travels in paper books. And so here’s one for them:
I made the notebook using my favourite masculine collection, Denim&Friends. The hemisphere pattern papers from the 6×6 pad were just perfect for the covers! I decorated the front with strips of plaid paper and signature strips and added some stamping and a die-cut wind rose. I placed the notebook title in a metal frame attached with nail-like brads.
The notebook closes with a piece of rubber elastic. A fabric brad acts as a kind of stopper for it.
I decorated the inner covers and the title page too, using a lot of Tim Holtz stamps. I also added a kraft envelope for some loose pages, photos, tickets etc. one might want to collect during summer travels.
And some more stamping on the back cover 🙂
And here’s what I used for the notebook:
Maja Design papers:
Jeans & Shirt
Other: stamps: Tim Holtz; die: Cheery Lynn Designs; chipboard covers: Scrapiniec; notebook insert: Studio75; kraft envelope: Anita’s; brads: Rayher, Craftmania; metal elements: my stash.
So what do you think? Would you take that notebook with you fro your holidays?
See you soon!
Welcome Maja friends!
Today I want to share with you another possibilitie, what you can do with the beautiful papers from Maja Design.
It’s a one sheet minialbum, that means for the basic you only need one background paper in 12 x 12″.
I chose from the Vintage Summer basics collection ”1936”, both colours are very suitable to my theme
blue, for the sea and brown, for a memoryin vintage style.
As addition some sheets from the Summertime collection.
By the sea diecuts
Watch the boat
I used some photo’s from our sheltie, a beautiful memory on last summer and really he is an aquaholic, even like me 🙂
on the right side you can see a ATC frame and some mini wooden shapes from Calico Craft Parts, a beautiful addition

Thanks for your visit!
Have a beautiful summertime my friends!
Hi everyone! I am back with a purple card today, with a few papers from the lovely Fika collection.
The main image is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers. I have stamped the image from Stempelglede on The Langton watercolour paper.
I have tried to use the same colours as the papers when I was colouring the vintage garden stamp.
The text says “You are special” and is also from Stempelglede. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. And I have put some sisal grass behind them. The shape of the card is made with a die from Go Kreate.
I have added different layers onto the card.
I really hope you are having a lovely weekend! I am soon of on my Summer holiday, which this year will be Spain. By the way, this card was published in the Norwegian Magazine Ett Trykk.
Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!
