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!

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!

 

Have a Wonderfull day.

Hello sweet Maja Fans,

Lenet here and today I bring you this card.

I made this card using the 15×15 paper pad of the gorgeous new collection Tropical Garden.

I just love this new collection it’s  fresh and different but still a typical Maja Design.

As you see I did some fuzzy cutting  with the Exotic Plants sheet from the 12×12 papers of this collection.

The Birds and the sentiment are from the diecut sheet

I used some foamtape to stich it all together in place to create some depth

 

The chipboard piece I used is one piece of the Lattice Pieces from Scrapaholics , I decided nto leave the color like it is  to match the leaves of the design on the background paper.

I hope you like the card I made for you.

Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful day,  please come back for some more inspiration from the other Maja Girls.

Hello Maja Friends,

I’ve a new card to share with you today

Though I am not a coffee addicted person, I am more a tea -lover, however I enjoy creating something with coffee and desserts theme.

well, as you may have noticed I started with fussy cutting the images of a lady, a coffee pot and a few flower bouquets.

I like the berry palette this collection – Little Street Cafe has- and it gives so many opportunities to create with.

beautiful papers remind about how clever we need to spend our time for ourselves

Hope you can enjoy your week end cup of coffee or a cup of tee, and then you will dig into crafting.
