Hello! Welcome to the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy, and I’m thrilled you’re here with me. I hope you’re having a wonderful day.
I’m reflecting on time this week, as my youngest child is about to graduate from university. How did all of those years slip away so quickly? They truly did fly by. I’m reminded to savor each precious moment, for time is a gift and memories are treasures. I’m drawing my inspiration for this card from Maja Design’s gorgeous Vintage Autumn Basics collection.
I begin by distressing, layering, and stitching design papers to form a base. All of the embellishments for this card are die cut from the Vintage Autumn Basics Collection. A double layer of vintage die cut clocks anchor the floral arrangement.
I have a tutorial for these roses here on the Maja Design Blog. Below, a border punch adds a lovely touch to strips of design paper. In the bottom corner you’ll find a stamped sentiment.
A twine bow ties everything together with a feminine flare.

Thank you for stopping by today!
Goodmorning Maja fans,
Oh how I love my beautiful Maja Design papers…..today I’d like to show you a little card with handmade flowers and a lot of bling which is totally not me but I loved making this card. This card is made out of four different collections but my base was the pretty “Summertime” collection. This is a card I made for my mother for the upcoming mothers day hihihi yes I am pretty early this time….
It’s a easel card made out of cream card stock and the flowers are made out of dies and I finished them off with some glass glitter and some mica powder to give it more shine. Also I added some bling swirls, some shine spray & cream prills.

Hello! Welcome to the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy here with you on this beautiful Tuesday. A week ago I posted a complete tutorial for paper roses, so I’m using some of my handmade blossoms to bring this secret garden to life. I have a passion for secret gardens. Honestly, I can’t get enough of them. My home, Charleston, is filled with private gardens sequestered behind tall brick walls with elaborate wrought iron gates. I’m always trying to peek beyond the gates to glimpse the beauty that lies beyond.
You don’t have to peek around massive iron gates to visit my garden! Inside you are greeted by distressed Maja Design papers, layered die cut doilies, abundant handcrafted blooms, shabby resin embellishments, and a sweet stamped sentiment.
You can create your own rose garden anytime you wish by checking out the tutorial presented here on the Maja Design Blog last Tuesday.
