 Hi there lovely friends,

Welcome to the blog today for this post I made two cards with some amazing 2Crafty Chipboard pieces. I made them in two different shades one in teal/aqua and the other one in darkpink/licht pink. For these cards I have used two collections of Maja Design papers.

My/Your Daydream:

 I treated the chipboard with flat fabio’s {danny zuko’s denim} twice and then I used three different waxes on them and cut them in two parts to place them in my flower cluster after they where all dried up. In the end I used some nuvo crystal drops on the circles. The Cards are made out of three layers that I distressed around the edges.

On the background of my layers I added a stencil and some spray.

Maja Design papers used:

Thank you so much for your visit today. And I sure hope that I have inspired you to take out your lovely Maja Design papers and create and have fun while doing so. Have a blessed & sunny weekend!

Hugs

Thank You Teacher Cards

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

There are several occasions to celebrate in June, like Children’s Day and Father’s Day, but I guess no other June day is so eagerly awaited by so many: the end of the school year 🙂 Apart from marking the beginning of the much-desired summer holidays, it’s also a chance to thank the teachers. And so I made two cards for this occasion to bring to you today 🙂

I used our latest release, the Everyday Life collection. In the first card I used chipboard elements embossed with gold ep – they add elegance to the simple design with the beautiful sunflowers bouquet image. I also added the book image to make the card more “teacherish” 🙂

In the second card I applied a stencil pattern upon the background paper using translucent glitter paste – it added glam and texture while not obscuring the paper pattern. Then I added chipboard pieces and in the centre I put a stamped books image, decorated with the paper-piecing technique:

Even though the cards are layered and dimensional, they’ll still fit into envelopes! 🙂

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamp, chipboard pieces, stencil: Agateria; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; pearls: ScrapbBerry’s.

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

Hello  sweet maja fans,

Lenet herre and today I bring you this congratulate card for some one who just has a new home.

Both our daughter and son are trying to find a home for themself, but because there is a big shortage for homes I think it can take a while before the finally find one.

Of course I hope they find one soon and I can sent this card to either one of them on thier new home adress.

 

I made this card using the Bohemian Harmony Collection. The chippies I used are from scrapaholics, I colored them with acrylic paints.

The stamps are som golden oldies from Waltzing mouse.

I hope you like my card and hope to see you again soon.

 

 

 

First Communion Cards

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

May is traditionally the month of First Communions in Poland, and as it’s a very important celebration for many kids, cards for the occasion are hugely popular. And so today I bring you two cards I made, for a boy and a girl.

While I used the beautiful Miles Apart collection for my cards, I focused on papers you would normally not see, or just not use at all 😉 because I used only one patterned paper, and the main background is with a Monochrome set paper, while for the decorative border on both cards I used the back sides of signature strips that you normally cut off and throw away 🙂 I love that Maja Design uses even those tiny scraps to give you beautiful patterns!

As you can see, I used the same design for both cards, and they differ only by border patterns and main images of boy and girl.

Apart from the background, I used the Monochrome papers for the leaves in the flower clusters too:

And so, although Monochrome sets that go with many of the Maja collections are meant to complement the patterned papers, they also make beautiful background by themselves, as each Monochrome set is designed with their own subtle patterns.

Here’s what I used for the cards:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: I Love Craft, Spellbinders; punch: DpCraft; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; stamps: Agateria.

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

 

Positive Messages For Her

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

International Women’s Day that is coming in March is perhaps not much celebrated due to its historical context, but I got inspired by this date to create cards for women with positive messages, expressing support and encouraging, that can be given to any important woman in our lives 🙂

I made all the cards using the Bohemian Harmony collection that gives such a nice boho vibe to your projects! All cards feature images from the Snapshots paper as focal elements. Forn the first card I chose the beautiful image of a girl bathing in the sea in the sunset, and added a die cut sentiment and tags.

In the second card I used squares punched out of various papers to make a patchwork-like background for the image and stamped sentiments (which say: “Never give up” and “You can do it, who if not you”):

And finally the third card: I placed the image in a chipoard embossed frame and added some mini flowers that refer to the flowery background paper, and hand-cut tags. The stamped sentiment says “You are awesome”:

All the cards are perfect for any occasion, or even on no occasion! 🙂 It’s always nice to send someone a supportive message.

Here’s what I used for the cards:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Crealies, Spellbinders, Kesi’art; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard, stamps: Agateria, sequins, string: my stash.

That’s all for today, see you soon!
