Hello, and welcome! How is your day going? I’m so happy you’ve joined us at the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy today, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be here with you. While looking through my recent projects, I realized it’s been a very long time since I’ve used one of my favorite collections, Vintage Autumn Basics. The beautiful purples and mauves from this lovely collection always call to me, and are the inspiration for my card.

The papers are so versatile that twine is the only embellishment that is not created from the collection.

The roses and leaves are handmade using design paper. I hope to have a new rose tutorial ready for you on my next post. I meant to have it for you today, but because we have the flu in our home the smallest things (like editing photos) seem insurmountable.  Happily, we are all recovering, so a tutorial will be following shortly.

The layered heart is die cut from design paper, then stitched on the sewing machine and fanned out to create dimension.

The vintage image, sentiment, and flourishes are also from the paper collection. You can see how easy it is to create a card filled with coordinating embellishments with nothing except a pack of Maja Design papers!

A twirly twine bow adds a final frilly touch.

Maja Design Papers Used:

Other Products Used: Natural Twine, Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Dies, Flower Shaping Kit, Flourish Die, Spellbinders Heart Die, Magnolia Rose Leaf Die, Tim Holtz Distress Tool, Sewing Machine, Thread. 

Thank you so much for stopping by! It’s a great pleasure and an honor for me to join you on the blog. I hope you have a day filled with sunshine and wondrously joyful moments!

Hugs,

Hello Maja Friends,

February is almost over, and I can’t wait when the Spring comes. I say it each year, but I can hardly bear the winter for so long. So from now I am ready for Spring Floral creations

I really love the Vintage Spring Basics collection, it’s so easy to create with it.

I used mostly one sheet for one card, and used both sides of it.

However the butterflies are so fun

But actually I’ve added the bright colors for the flowers

To my second card I also added the ribbon and lace

Products used:

Vintage Spring Basics 6×6 Paper pad

Hello everyone,

happy Monday.I made a very soft shabby chic card in pink and creme combo using the new “Celebration” collection.I created lots of layers using papers,die cuts and laces.I have used pink floral print papers for the card and matted it with creme color papers from the monochromatic collection.The papers are distressed with white gesso on the edges using dry brush to tone down the design.

I have used a lovely delicate chipboard frame from Scrapiniec as focal point and used couple of prima flowers to decorate my card.I used some die cut flowers and leaves between the layers which are cut with pink and creme pattern papers from the collection.

As final touch i used couple of printed butterflies and pink rhine stones.

Some more close ups..

Maja papers used: All dressed up, Jubilee ,The table is set BS, Champagne BS, Pearl BS

Happy crafting

Hello our blog fans. Today I’m continuing to play around with the Celebration collection.  This time I chose the motive with the lady and tried to create stylish card. Take a look, please :

I used the metal embellishment, chipboard in a vintage style from Scrapiniec. The lace on the right site came from my treasure’s drawer. It’s a really good idea to ask your mum, grannie or even friends – they used to have some treasure’s boxes at home. I love the colours of these papers – definitely !

Hope you will like my card. Let’s celebrate ! Hugs, Paulina

You’re invited

Welcome Maja friends!

Valentine’s day is just around the corner,

the right time for me to make some cards and tags for good friends, because it’s not only the day for romantics and those in love,
also to remember on beautiful and happy moments with loving people.

As I saw our newest paper collection ‘Celebrate’ I was inspired from the dancing people from the sheet ‘Charleston’, they radiate so much joy and love of life, right?!

I thought on old film classics, on the 20s and created two tags in vintage style. I prefer not so much colors, only brown,white and black because the motifs are very meaningful.

used Maja Design papers

 

some details

Firstly I used an embossing folder ‘Music notes’ and film stripe was made with a die cut,

at one point it was torn sideways to insert a text stripe.

Have you seen the lower margins on all the paper sheets, they are very suitable as addition. I used ‘You’re invited’.

Two happy dancing people were cut out, some flowers, pearls and a black feather, not more and the funny little tag was ready.

++++++++++++++++++++++

…. and a second inspiration with ‘You’re invited bs’ as background paper

+++++++++++++++++

… and suitable to this tags a romantic card in vintage style

Many thanks for your visit, I hope it was a little inspiration for you

to try out and play with our newest collection papers.

Have a wonderful crafty time!
