Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer with you today. I am sharing another gift envelope in the provence style, I absolutely love this palette and wish to be in the lavender fields once myself.

In this envelope you can present either the gift card or the one to some lovely person. I have used Wild Orchid flowers, some Russian die cuts and Russian chipboard in it.

Some lace, and kraft accents look gorgeous in this mixture

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today :)

I don’t know about your places, but in Poland autumn more often than not is cool, rainy and windy (although we do have a term “golden Polish autumn”, meaning the warm time with all those fabulous colours!), with temperatures discouragin any outdoor activity 😉 So it’s the best time to curl up under a soft blanket, grab a cup of raspberry tea and indulge oneself in reading! And therefor for my today’s post I’m sharing two bookmarks I made for my sweet cousin and her husband :)


My cousin likes greens and purples, so I chose these colours from the Ska Vi Ta En Fika? collection for her bookmark and added golden accents:


I embossed the stamped Bible quotation with golden ep and then made a watercolour background using the embossing resist technique. I also tied some charms at the top:



The back side of the bookmark features gorgeous purple roses background, and my cousin’s initial and a stamped “I’m reading here” sentiment :)


The bookmark for her husband is made exactly in the same way, though I used a different stamp and colour palette, based on the Denim & Friends collection (love!). I also used decorative signature strips as borders:




And the back side:


And here’s what I used:

Other: stamps: Prima Marketing, Lemonade, Art Parts; charms: Marianne Design, Rayher; dies: Crealies; inks: Ranger.


I do hope the bookmarks will make the reading even more pleasant for my family :) What do you think?

See you later!

Jennifer Snyder here today.  I’m sharing my cards made with one of my favorite Maja design collections, Fika and embellished with flowers from Petaloo by Floracraft.
 It’s always time for a coffee or tea break as far as I am concerned.  In fact I was actually sipping hot coffee while making these cards.
These are the gorgeous papers I used from the  “Ske vi ta en Fika collection ( Fika) –
 Två Fröknar,
Söders Höjder,
I embellished the cards with flowers by Petaloo by Floracraft.  They are gorgeous little Forget-me-nots from the Penny Lane collection.  The Petaloo flowers also match the papers perfectly.
The stamps are from JustRite Papercrafts.  Very fun coffee themed stamps!



 Thank you for joining me today for a spot of coffee.

 You can shop for Maja Design paper collections here.

Jennifer Snyder here today to share my card.
Purple and green are among my favorite color combinations.  Toss in  rich chocolate brown color and you have the Fika collection from Maja Design.
I adore this classic collection.  I did have to stop hoarding the paper and actually cut it up to use, however there is still a part of me that wants to hoard away forever.  But we all know in our hearts that paper is meant to be used and enjoyed on projects and not tucked away on a shelf.
I accented the card with some fabulous purple Petaloo Flowers.  They are a perfect match and help to add a delicate touch.
Here is a close up.


Thanks for stopping here  and I hope your day is wonderful.

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the Sofiero paper collection. I chose a photo of my family: my grandmother, my father, my aunt and unfortunately I’m not sure who the other two are.

Family by Pascale B.

I primed the background with clear gesso. While it was drying, I cut a few papers from the Vintage Romance 6×6 pad that I glued on the background. Then I added a thin layer of white gesso.

I added a design with a stencil and different pastes: clear crackle, white crackle, and white stone. When dry, I added some color with Iris Potion Sparks paint that I watered down.

I die-cut some leaves in a watercolor paper. I colored the vine with Raven Sparks and the leaves with Twinkling H2Os. Then I covered them with the Antique Brillance Amethyst Magic. I added some wax on the background too to add a vintage look.

I colored some flowers with a spray made of Primary Element and water. Before gluing all the embellishments, I added some random stamping with an Archival ink and with the Raven Sparks. I added a little bird house that I colored with the wax too.

To finish the layout I added some micro beads.
