Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today!
The wedding season is slowing down a bit, but still the wedding bells can be heard each Saturday 😉 And so it is reasonable to have a stock of wedding cards and gifts at hand. Therefore for my today’s post I decided to make a wedding exploding box for those who wish to complete their wishes with some cash too 🙂
I combined two collections in the box, and they are both perfect not only because of beautiful colours and elegant patterns, but also because of their names! Mix Vintage Romance with Celebration and you have a perfect wedding project.
I matched the flowers I used for the box with the printed ones of the Engagement sheet.
Inside the box are the usual slots for money – the sentiments say: for the crib, for the shared nest and for the journey of your dreams – as well as the space for writing in wishes:
The filigree chipboard cake I used perfectly matches the flourishes of the papers! I decorated it with mini flowers and satin ribbon:
And how do you give cash presents to the newlyweds? Just an envelope or something more elaborate?
Here’s what I used to make the exploding box romantic and flowery:
Maja Design papers:
Mono Celebration-Lavender Rose
To the party bs
Other: flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard cake: Wycinanka.pl; dies: Crealies; ribbons, cheesecloth, pearls: my stash.
And that is all for today, thank you for visiting the blog and feel welcome to drop by any time to find more inspiration 🙂
Hi there! Hope you all are fine! This time I wanted to make an Autumn card for you. I have coloured the lovely image from Stempelglede in warm colours with Distress ink, to match the lovely Maja papers.
I have put the sign up on a barbecue stick. It is stamped on a monochromes paper from Maja Design (Shades of Winterdays – Creme).
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and I have put som sisal grass behind them. I have also painted with White gesso on the flowers an papers.
Here are the papers used:

Have a lovely weekend,
Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,
Yesterday some of us at the Maja Design creative team are guests designers at the More Than Words challenge blog! I totally love this months challenge because I love using frames and the word memories on my layouts as much as I can. For this layout I used the always amazing “Denim & Friends” collection. If you click on the pink words above it will take you to the link at their blog.
For the frames and the text I used some beautiful The Dusty Attic chippies which I colored with gesso, acrylic paints and rust paste. First I added a layer of clear gesso on my background sheet later on I added some lindy’s spray after that I added a script stemp and a stencil with some crackle paste. The flowers are by 49 and Market & Little Birdie.
I used some clear gesso on my background sheets after that I added some white spray that I moved from the left to the right with a brush. When that dried I took a script stamp with some grey ink and stamped it randomly on my background after that I added a stencil with paste.
At the end I added some art stones and some of the clocks from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection.
Maja Design papers used: Sunbleached, Fashion bs & Stonewashed
Thank you very much for your visit, I hope I have inspired you to go and create something beautiful with your Maja papers. Have a wonderful & sunny day!
