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!

Hello Maja Fans,

I’ve got a bunch of new cards I made with Bohemian Harmony collection

I enjoy these new papers, so floral and gypsy at the same time.

I made a few layers and added a few fussy cutting flowers

I also added a few ready flowers , to make the embellishments  more dimensional.

But most of all I like the images I used from Snapshots paper sheet.

The quotes I used for my cards are also from the pieces with product info, so handy.

I am looking forward to create more with this awesome collection, hope you have already tried it too.

Christmas Giftcard

Hello Sweet Maja Fans,

Lenet here today, I hope you all had a very nice , warm and festive Midwinter/Christmas /Yule or what you in your country or believes celebrate.

Today I have this gift card for you that I made for my daughter using the latest Christmas collection Happy Christmas.

This is the front,  the A gift for you sentiment  is made with  a Waltzingmouse stamp.

The card closes with a red and white bakers twine.

My kids are gamers so give them  a giftcard for , playstation ,STEAM or whatever they want . Because the don’t really sell real giftcards any more but give you an voucher instead.

So I made a little envelope containing the voucher with code to put in the giftcardholder , wich I made using a die from lawn fawn.

 

And of course I did some fussy cutting again. The Merry Christmas sentiment is a piece of the bottom strip of one of the papers.

I decided to make more christmas cards thru the year so I don’t have to do them all in a hurry at the end of the year.

Just so you know I’m not confusing dates or time of the year when you see me posting a christmas card in mits of summer

I hope you like this giftcard I made.

I wish you very happy holidays and hope to see you again soon.
