Hello our blog fans. Today I would like to show totally different card. Easy to make and simple. Not all of us like to create projects full of layers, flowers etc. Some prefer simple projects. It doesn’t mean that they are boring – just take a look and let’s create something with me step by step.

  1. Find the chipboard and choose the papers – they need to fit together
  2. Use the white embossing powder to your chipboard
  3. Cut out all the elements from the paper, create the basic composition.
  4. Use the sewing machine and add a bit of elegance to your card.5. If you like – find a simple add ons. Glue everything together and then add some white and black splashes.
  5. You card is ready. Isn’t it lovely ? Hope you will like my today’s inspiration. If you have any question – do not hesitate ask. Used chipboard came from Scrapiniec . Have a lovely day, Paulina

Hello our blog friends. My today’s proposal is a notebook made with the Summer Crush Collection. I think this notebook will stay with me for a little longer….

Memories never fade Memories never fade Memories never fade Memories never fade Memories never fade Memories never fade Memories never fade DSC_0597I love every single details of these papers. It is already second paper-set used by me. I keep every single element to use for cut some leafs or tiny circles. I will not write how I compose all layers cause this time it’s not so difficult. Simple but at the same time spectacular. I’m rally happy with the final result and the most important thing for me is to have fun. We create for enjoyment  – remember it. Of course we have some trends … but try to follow  your heart and keep a projects in your style.

Memories never fade… do you agree ?

Hello Maja Friends,

Elena is here with you today and I’ve a trio cards I made for wedding . It seems that wedding season is in my mind all the past 4 months. However I have a trio of cards I made with Summer Crush collection


Yes, it’s not easy to create only one card. So I’ve got used to make several at once


I played with the plaid background pattern and then using almost the same papers and the same dies made 3 cards


I like the soft colors this collection has and the summer feeling is definitely feels in them



What I have focused this time on are the flowers white and peach pink

Goodmorning lovelies,

Today I have a another layout to share for this layout I used two pretty Maja Design collections “Enjoying Outdoors” & “Summer Crush” because both collections had the colors that I wanted to use for it which are purple/pink/peachy tones. This time I used another picture of Camilla her precious twins singing like two little diva’s. My post was for last Friday but I was really busy adding this video so I was not ready in time so I stole this Monday to post with approval of Camilla ofcours hihihi.


Oh this was such a fun layout to make I do have my favorite Maja Design collections and those are not on top of my list but I have to say I think now I will take them out more often. With my precious 49 and Market flowers it is easy to transform your layout in a flowers sea of gorgeousness. As you will see in my video I made this layout through out the day as the light changes during the movie. Have fun watching 😉

Hope you enjoyed my second video ever thank you so much for watching now for the closeups:




Don’t you just love these colors together I love the purple and pink /peachy but I never use them like this. I do intent to get out my green/blue papers and flower more do not know why that is tho…..although purple is my favorite color I almost never use it lol




On this layout I did some watercoloring but not with a brush but with a piece of plastic….the finishing touches that I have done on this layout are not in my video as I do intent to alter my layout when it is already finished {before I take my pictures}

Here comes a Confirmand card I made to my friends son. And I have used papers and image from the Summer Crush collection for this one. I think the papers have really sharp and cool colours, which fits sporty young people 🙂 It is my son (three years) who is holding the card on the photo above.


Here comes some more pictures of the lollipop card:


The lollipop cards ar fun to make, and they are faster to make than my ordinary cards. Here comes a closeup.


Tags from Magnolia with texts from Stempelglede.


The text #konfirmant is written on my computer and printed out. I have used my sewing machine and sewed the paper edges. They are also inked with Distress ink – reinkers.


Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog!

With love,
