Jennifer Snyder here to share a fun pop and twist card crafted by pairing Maja Design papers with Spellbinders dies designed by Becca Feeken.

It’s a great day when you sit at your crafting table and can pair some of your favorite products together to create a project that is sure to make someone special smile.

Here are the beautiful papers used from the Maja Design Summertime collection:
Light Scarlet
It’s Always the Best
Smell the Roses

I love cards that are surprises. This card is a total surprise.  When opened it pops out to present a beautiful summer garden gate. 

Here is a quick video showing how my card opens. 
  

 Here is the front of the card.  While the inside of the card is the real “show-stopper”, the outside is special and packed with beauty as well.  It features the delicate images found within the Summertime collection.

 Thanks for stopping here.

Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer with you today. I have made a soft summer nautical card that can be used for couple occasions, I hope we will use it as a compliment to the main gift to an upcoming friends birthday of my middle son.

I have drawn the boat and then transferred it to the Maja Design, I have then mounted it on the Kraft cardstock, you can probably see it between the layers. Lots of fussy cutting the postmarks, some scrapiniec chipboard and sewing machine stitching.

lots of close ups:

I have also made the flags on the toothpicks from the coordinating Maja papers.

I have used the lovely Summertime collection here

Have a great Sunday, people:)

Happy birthday!

Hi everyone! It’s Camilla here today, showing you a card made with the wonderful Summertime papers.

I have made a birthday card, and used a lot of dies. The cake in the middle is made with a Magnolia die, using kraft cardstock and beautiful Summertime papers.

The white spots are Frantage.

The small butterfly is cut out from a Vintage Spring sheet.

The beautiful texts are from Stempelglede. I have stamped them with Memento – Rich cocoa.

Here you get a closer look at the papers and small details. The flowers are also cut out with Magnolia dies. I have added some Sisal grass under them, and painted with white Gesso here and there. The two stamps are Maja Papers cut out with a die. I ink the edges with Walnut Stain.

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

With love,

Hello and welcome Maja Design friends.

Tina Ollett with you today to share my newest layout “Perfect Beauty”.

Last year was a huge year for my eldest daughter having graduated from high school. Of course there was the formal and semi formal and graduation dinners and lots of differing ceremonies to celebrate many milestones of her schooling life. And as always, I was there at the ready with my camera to capture all of these moments.

Sometimes for me, it is easier behind the camera, because I can hide my emotions of joy of pride and of just being her mum. I am, as I am of all my children so very proud. So you can imagine how I felt when I saw this photo after taking so many many photos in only a short space of time. Because of course we were running late !

So with you I will share now all the details of this project.

 

For my project I used a combination of different collections. My background piece “Sunbleached” was from Denim and Friends.

 

And my second piece from the Summertime collection.  This is titled “Wind in my hair”. Is was so easy to combine both pieces for this project. Looking closely at the Sunbleach page you will see snippets of the vintage orange with compliments it very easily. And because the quality of these papers are amazing I was able to do some creasing of “Wind in my hair” by spritzing the paper with water and manipulating it. I then dried the paper off. Did a little sanding, tearing and distressing. I then adhered the two pieces together.

 

With my remaining papers ( I actually used two sheets of each) I did more tearing and made layers to sit under my photo. I also matted my photo. I have embellished my page with lots of Dusty Attic chipboards that were dressed in acrylic paints and distress inks.

Above you can see the layers of papers intertwined with chipboards and flowers and lace and also a little Cheesecloth.

My flowers used were from 49andMarket. They were all coloured with acrylic paints to compliment my layout.

Here you can see the creases made on my background paper. I have also done some stamping and painting of my background.

Lots of layers made with the papers which you can see above. I love to tear these papers and use both a and b sides. I have tucked in lots of pieces of lace cut into smaller pieces to give some height to my layout.

Well that is all from me tonight. I do hope you have enjoyed my post here today. Thank you for popping by.

 

Until next time take care and happy scrapping.

Jennifer Snyder here to share a Valentine’s gift set.  The gorgeous raspberry pinks in the Maja Design Summertime collection are perfect for Valentine’s Day.
My gift card set was created with a cool shadowbox die from Spellbinders  and the card was made with a heart die from Spellbinders.
Below is a look at the papers I used for the Shadowbox.
Smell the Roses
In the Garden Die Cuts
Flowers Everywhere (B side)
The beautiful flirty bicycle image is from the die cut sheet in the Summertime collection.
The flowers were custom made using another Spellbinders die and cut from papers from the Summertime collection.  Perfectly coordinated.
Next I made a matching card to accompany the Shadowbox Valentine.  The card was made using the following papers:
