Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

The weather is slowly changing into dull, rainy and cool, but I’m not ready yet to leave the summer behind 😉 And so today I bring you a cheerful summer wishes card made using the very summery Tropical Garden collection:

I layered background papers, applied a stencil pattern on top and added a shaker box balloon filled with sequins, hand-cut tags and a flowers cluster including a bouquet cut out from one of the sheets:

I finished the card off with a chipboard sentiment embossed with white ep.

 

I really like the dimension the card has, though it will require making a box too 😉

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: 49&Market, my stash; chipboard, stencil, embossing powder: Agateria; vintage ribbon, sequins: my stash.

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later!

Hello  Sweet Maja Fans,

Lenet here and today I bring you this this layout .

I made this layout using the  wonderful papers of  the Summer Crush collection.

I layered some sheets and distressed the edges.  For the top sheet I used my sewing machine and zigzagged it on to the other sheets.

The chippies I used are from Scrapaholics chipboards .I painted those in the color I wanted and gave them a top layer of clear embossingpowder.

The flowers I used are from Prima and 47andMarket.

 

I hope you like my layout, see you next time .

 

 

 

Berry Tongues

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

What is your childhood association with summertime? In my family it’s always been blackberry picking and eating, making blackberry pies, dumplings, jelly, eating them with sugar and cream… 🙂 So the singature look for summer kids in my family is a berry tongue! And it’s no different for my kids:

I used the Tropical Garden collection not only because it’s a perfect summer collection, but also because it features that perfect shade of berry purple 🙂 I matted the photo with bits of paper and hand-cut tags and added art clay fern leaves, “berry twigs” with mulberry leaves and die-cut berries 🙂 I also die-cut letters to arrange the title. I finished the layout by spraying some moss-green and gold mist.

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Craft&You Design, Marianne Design; leaves: 49&Market, mists: Prima, fern mold: Prosvet.

 

That’s all for today, see you soon!

 

Baptism Cards

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

A couple of years ago I made two Baptism cards using papers with very delicate patterns. Going through my pics the other day I found those cards and had that idea: how about making them a little bit more bold? So I selected some papers from the Miles Apart collection, changed the design just a tad – and boy, what a difference!

 

I love the cards’ refreshed look, delicate and light due to just a change of papers 🙂 Apart from that, I used stamped images of babies that I coloured with Distress inks, clusters of white flowers, ribbon and sequins.

One is for a girl:

…and one for a boy:

Do you sometimes go back to your old projects and remake them? 🙂

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Whiff of Joy, Lemonade; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon: Vintage Ribbon; sequins, waxed string: my stash.

 

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later!

Tropical Wedding Card

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

The summer this year spoils us – sometimes too much, really! – with hot weather. And it is also traditionally the most busy time of the year when weddings are concerned. And when you combine “hot summer” and “wedding” you can only get a tropical wedding card 😀

In Poland, when we describe a couple who is very much in love, we use a saying that can be translated as “inseparable parrots”. So it was a perfect motive for me to put on a wedding card! I cut out two birds from the “Major Mitchell” sheet and arranged a love scene, adding some more cut outs, a filigree chipboard heart and some dimensional flowers. To make the flower cluster look fuller, I stamped some leaves in the background paper to match the printed ones. I also stamped the sentiment “Forever” directly onto the paper. I finished the card with some vintage ribbon, string and acrylic gems.

The card is nicely dimensional too, due to mounting particular layers on foam dots of various heights.

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps, chipboard: Agateria; flowers, ribbon: Wild Orchid Crafts; acrylic gems, string: my stash.

 

That’s all for today, thank yopu for visiting and see you later!
