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

Recently I got some cutest photos of my cousin’s precious baby girl and of course I couldn’t resist making layouts with some of them ūüėČ And for my today’s post I’m sharing one of those pages:

I chose the beautiful Marriage Proposal paper from the Vintage Romance collection for my background. I added some colour along the border with Distress ink and then stamped peony silhouettes:

I matted the photo with pieces from the Sofiero and Denim&Friends collections that matched the photo colour scheme. Then I added my floewr cluster mimicking the one in the picture:

I extended it into a cascade blending into the stamped pattern and glitter-covered chipboard flourishes:

I composed the title using epoxy and paper stickers. Then I added some sequins and gemstones as the finishing touch:

I mounted the layers of papers on pieces of cardboard (great way to use up delivery boxes ūüėČ ) so they don’t look flat against the flowers. And I really love the dimension it gives!

What do you think?

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Altenew; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; stickers: American Crafts, PińÖtek Trzynastego; chipboard: Miszmasz Papierowy; Distress inks, glitter: Ranger; sequins, bling: my stash.

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and keep dropping by for more inspiration every day!

What a Lovely Day!

I wish a happy to hello to all of our wonderful visitors at the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy here, and I’m thrilled to join you on the blog today. I have a brand new all occasion card to share.

Once again I’m quite inspired by pastels, which I attribute to the beautiful weather and long sunny days, and the lovely Sofiero collection is just what I’m looking for!

Each paper is distressed, layered, and stitched to form a base. A paper doily anchors the lush bouquet of paper flowers.

Twine bows add a frilly  and feminine touch. The sentiment is part of the paper collection, no stamping needed for this one! I did a bit of stamping with a script stamp to add a bit of interest, then added a dusting of gesso.

Below is a peek of the interior of the card. I always try to coordinate it with the front.

Maja Design Papers Used:

Other Products Used: Doilies, Twine, Tim Holtz Distress Tool, Paper Flowers, Script Stamp, Archival Ink, Gesso, Paint Brushes, Adhesives. 

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog! It’s an honor to be here with you. I hope your day is filled with joy and fun filled hours of creativity.

Hugs,

Celebrate Mother’s Day

Jennifer Snyder here to share a card I made for my mother to celebrate Mother’s Day.
I used the gorgeous soft collection from Maja Design, called Sofiero.
The beautiful rose florals in this collection remind me of the rose garden my mother had in our front yard when I was a child.
These are the papers I used from the Sofiero collection:
Strolling Down the Rose Path
The Elegant Winehouse
Romantic Picnic in the Park

  I used a Spellbinders die, created by Becca Feeken for the embellishing.  The die was backed by a piece of floral lace to add an extra touch of femininity.

Here is one last look at the card.

Thanks for sharing a little of your day with us.

Hello, friends! I hope you’re enjoying a truly wonderful day. It’s Nancy with you on the blog, and I’m excited to share a new card. I have a friend in need of something special for a loved one battling a serious illness, so I’ve created this in hopes of providing a bit of cheer to her day. I gave quite a bit of thought to which papers to use, and for this project I am inspired by the beautiful pastels of the Sofiero collection.

It’s almost impossible to show glitter effects in photos (I rarely use it), but this card has glittery sparkle within the bouquet tumbling down the center for a ‘fairytale’ feel. The flowers are a mix of Prima and handmade. You’ll find the two that are handmade at the bottom of the floral spray, which are my first attempt at Foamiran flowers.

A label die and hand punched lace anchor the florals at the right edge.

The sentiment stamp below seems perfect for this project.

A loopy twine bow adds a feminine flourish. I love including bows of all types, and rarely feel like a card is finished without one. The interior provides ample of space for a personal message.

Maja Design Papers Used: 

Other Products Used: Heartfelt Creations Flower Die and Stamps, Foamiran, Tim Holtz Inks, Prima Flowers and Nest, Martha Stewart Glitter, Martha Stewart Lace Edge Punch, Spellbinders Labels Die, Archival Ink, Sentiment Stamp, Twine, Adhesive, Sewing Machine, Thread.

Thank you so much for joining us on the Maja Design Blog today! I send wishes for gentle spring breezes and many happy hours in your own cozy craft space.

Hugs,
