Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new project. Christmas is nearly there, and I was thinking that having a few more Xmas cards could be handy. And here I’m with a new set of cards with the Vintage Frost Basics.

Xmas Card by Pascale B.

Both cards are made the same way and are really simple to realize.

I cut two papers: one dark and one light. I cut the lighter slightly smaller than the dark one and I distress their edges.

I glue the lighter on top of the dark one. I cut some greeneries and mistletoes in different papers from the Vintage Frost Basics collection.

Then I glue the floral arrangement. And I die cut some letters to add “Merry Xmas”.

I wish a happy hello to all of the wonderful friends of Maja Design! It’s Nancy back with you today, and I’m up to my ears in snowflakes! Not the cold kind that you sled in, because we don’t get snow where I live, but the frilly and frosty paper ones that I make every year around this time for my Christmas cards. I start early with my cards because time seems to fly during November and December, and I’m also childishly excited over the Christmas holiday.

I never use anything but Maja Design papers for my snowflakes. It stays intact despite the delicate nature of the die cuts, and is perfect for layering into these dimensional flakes. For this first card of the season I’ve chosen the fabulous Vintage Frost Basics Collection.

The base of the card is formed as usual, by distressing, layering, and stitching the design papers. I’m sticking with just two colors this time around, because soft blues and whites create a wonderful chilly feeling when used together.

There are no flowers this time (which rarely happens for me), but instead an arrangement of layered snowflakes topped off with a bit of white sand texture paste for a truly frosty finish. Icy branches and tiny snowballs enhance the frozen effect.

A little bow graces the corner, simply because I love them and feel like nothing is finished without one.

A very good morning to you, dear Visitors to the Maja Design blog :)

The summer is coming to an end, but we shouldn’t let our spirits go down! Today I have two birthday cards to share, and their common element is the blue palette and a motif connected with flying high above :)

The first one features an angel wing in the flower cluster:

I layered papers from the Vintage Frost collection, placed the sentiment stamp with a button in the centre and surrounded it with flowers and leaves. I also added some pearl brads and liquid pearls.

The central motif of the second card is an air balloon surrounded by flowers:

I used scraps of the Vintage Romance papers to make a shabby patchwork background, placed the chipboard layered balloon upon it and decorated it with mini roses and crystal flourishes.

Good morning, Maja friends, welcome to the blog :)

Today I have a sweet baby layout to share with you:

mdangel

I combined the Vintage Frost and Vintage baby collections to create a delicate girly layout with my sweet niece. I created a layered background placing a square in the centre of the striped paper and adding a punched decorative square on top. Then I added a die-cut doily as a decorative corner between the photos:

mdangel1

I matted the photos with papers and tags from the Ephemera sheet, and then adde a couple of balloons I cut out from the New Arrival paper:

mdangel2

The flower cluster includes paper straws with metallic foil patterns and gold metallic drops:

mdangel3

I made the title with foam sticker letters, embellishing the letter “a” with a molded angel wing and added a signature strip from one of the papers as a decorative border:

mdangel4

As a cherry on top, I stamped “You are perfect” in the lower corner.

mdangel5

I really love how the papers and patterns compliment the cute photos of the baby girl :) What do you think?

And here’s the list of supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: letters: American Crafts; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts, my stash; die: Prima; punch: Martha Stewart, mold: Prosvet; stam: ScrapBerry’s; paper straws, gold drops: mys stash.

 

See you later!

Mother’s Day Cards

Good morning, Maja Design friends, welcome to the blog today :)

I know many of you have already celebrated Mother’s Day, but in Poland this holiday comes on May 26th. And so for my today’s post I have two simple shabby chic cards for moms :)

mdmom

Both are made using the Sofiero collection – soft, delicate colours and beautiful designs are simply perfect for the occasion. And so in the first card I layered sand-coloured papers in the background and placed two cut-out images on top. Then I added the sentiment in a decorative die frame and some mini roses:

mdmom1

I slightly distressed the edges of papers to give them a more shabby look. Small pearls are a cherry on top 😉

mdmom2

mdmom3

For the background of the other card I embossed the Monochromes white/sand paper to add some texture:

mdmom4

Then I placed a flowery tag on top onto which I stamped my sentiment. I put a decorative chipboard frame on top so that the sentiment pops out :)

mdmom5

I finished my card off with a small flower cluster:

mdmom6

Though simple, the cards still were a kind of a challenge for me: I had to make them flat enough to go into envelopes to be mailed :) With my love for dimension that was sooo hard! :)

And here’s what I used:

Other: chipboard: Scrapiniec; stamps: Lemonade; dies: Sizzix; brads: Craftmania; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon, string: my stash.

 

Have a nice day and see you soon!
