Hi everyone! Here comes my inspiration card. My sister in law has graduated from nurse school now, and I made her this card. She was so happy when I gave it to her, so it was all worth making it! 🙂 I am so proud of her, and all she accomplish!

And what is better than to use this lovely papers from the Summertime collection! They are really beautiful!

This is the first image where I have tried out my new water colour paper. It is called Bockingford, and is 300 g hot pressed. I use brushes size 0 and 00.

The flowers are from Petaloo, and the small ones are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Image and dies are from Magnolia. The shape if the card is made with Go Kreate dies.

 

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja blog.

With love,

Good morning Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

In less than a fortnight Polish schoolchildren will be free from school until September 🙂 So it’s an intensive time of last chances to get better grades and thank your teachers. And so for today I have two simple thank you teacher cards to share:

Just as with the Denim&Friends collection, I wanted to check whether the feminine version, Denim&Girls, would make masculine projects too 😉 And so I used these papers to make a feminine and a masculine card. I used the same design for both cards, so only the paper patterns make a difference. The she-teacher card features a hint of pink and some flower patterns:

And the he-teacher version shows off some geometrical designs and darker colour palette:

And so again, it turns out you can use Maja Design papers for any project and theme, and you are not limited to its original theme 🙂

Here’s what I used for my cards:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: Spellbinders; stamp: Lemonade; brads: Craftmania; charms: my stash.

I hope the teachers who get the cards would feel appreciated! After all, they are like second parents to our kids 🙂

See you soon!

Hi everyone! It’s Camilla here again with a card I made with the lovely papers from the Vintage Spring Basics Collection.

Here I have made a window with a birdhouse inside. The dies used are from Magnolia.

Here you can see a close up of how the birdhouse is built up.

Just love working with these beautiful Maja papers. As you can see I have added Fran-tage here and there.

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

With love,

Wedding Season

Hello Maja Design Friends.

The new brand collection Denim & Friends has been announced recently, and though I see it’s Boho style , I decided to create something absolutely different.

I’ve made Wedding Cards and the love the delicacy the papers have.

The floral prints, stripes and lace patterns are perfect for mixing. I made some fussy cutting as well, the roses are so lovely.

To create the scene on my cards I used the dies, classy and Summer – associated. And to make the grape leaves I used Monochrome Shades papers from Celebration Collection.

The cards are lovely and full of tiny numerous details , though they look quite simple.

I didn’t add many flowers since the papers are perfect with no extra embellishments.

Products used:

Spellbinders Dies and Prima Marketing Flowers.

Mother’s Day Cards

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

In many countries Mother’s Day was already celebrated, but in Poland it comes on May 26th, so just in two days 🙂 And since my getting married I have two moms, I made two cards for the occasion, using the latest collection by Maja Design, Denim & Girls:

For the foccal points of my cards I chose images from the Girls In Jeans sheet. As jeans and laces are totally my thing 😉 I thought the images would represent me giving flowers to my moms.

In one card I stamped and embossed the sentiment diretly onto the image piece and then mounted it over layered papers and added some mini roses and a filigree chipboard flourish:

As I like adding tiny elements to my projects, I cut out a star tag from the signature strip and accented it with glitter:

In the other card I mimicked the jeans-lace layers from the image, using paper and cotton lace, and then added a resin heart filled with miniroses. Glitter and some bling add the glamour touch:

I hope my moms would like the cards – do you? 🙂

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; stamps: Lemonade; chipboard: Scrapiniec; bling, string, lace – my stash.

So that’s all for today, thank you for visiting – and happy Mother’s Day to all moms out there!
