Hi everyone! Here comes a lollipop card I made for a friend of mine. I have used some lovely papers from the Vintage Summer Basics collection. Here comes some photos I took a lovely Summer day.

To make the card, I first start by folding two accordions 30 x 7 cm. I fold at every cm. Then I glue the two papers together and get a long accordion. And after that I make a circle with it, by gluing it to a paper underneath.

All the gorgeous flowers was a gift from Petaloo some time ago. I got so many flowers, that I still have many left after making some projects for their cooperation with Maja Design. The butterflies are cut out from the pattern paper (Vintage Spring Basics). The image is coloured with Distress Ink.

Some secret envelopes. Made from a Magnolia die, using beautiful papers from Maja Design.

The text (from Stempelglede) is embossed on craft paper (translated: Have a lovely birthday).

Here is a list of the papers used:

 

With love,

Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer with you today. We have been relocating to another country this summer so I have been not scrapping for a while and I must say it feels so wonderful to get back to my working table. I still feel a bit lost in my reorganised stash, but the first card is ready:)

The Denim and Friends collection is just absolutely wonderful, whenever you sit to carte with it, the projects just come up together so easily. Absolutely love it!

and some close ups:

My secret for all the masculine cards are some contrast details, some black, kraft accents, Metal parts, all gears, chipboard fits here always good. You can also add black machine stitching, some layers, a bit of rough touches of paper here and there…

 

I have used the prefect masculine collection, Denim and Friends:

 

Have a lovely day,

Hi everyone! It is Camilla here with a piano pop up card for you. I have used the gorgeous papers from the Vintage Romance collection. I will show you which at the end of the post.

I have cut the piano out from Maja paper, and added black and vanilla bazzil for the tangents. The cute girl is Tilda from Magnolia. The text is from Stempelglede. And I have embossed it. The piano is made with a die from Magnolia. The circles are made with dies from Spellbinders.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have used green ink and water for the seem binding ribbon, curled it up and let it to dry.

Here you can see the card from the side, and how it is built up.

Here is the list of papers used:

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja blog today!

Big hugs,

Christmas in July

Hello again dear Maja fans.

We still have a amazing summer over here in the Netherlands with lots of sun and warm temperatures. They are even talking about a heatwave next week.

So in order to cool down a little , I made this Christmas card , you never start too early making them right? Maybe this year I will be done in time instead of making them at the last minute.

This one I made with some leftovers from projects I made earlier with the Vintage Frost Collection.

To create snow the snow on the edges I used Finnabair art extravagance paper texture paste.

To create dimension on the card I used foamtape to stick the pieces together.

Thank you very much for your visit, I hope I was able to give you some inspiration with this card.

 

Wedding Envelope Card

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

While our summer Moodboard palette is absolutely gorgeous and up to my taste (check out the previous post!), for my today’s post I changed the colours entirely to go pinky mauve for a wedding. It’s been ages since I’ve made an envelope card and I thought I might as well make one 😉 But as Maja papers are nicely thick and sturdy, they aren’t perfect for a classic heavily folded envelope form. Therefore, I cheated a bit and made a card using only half of the sheet. And here it is:

I cut the She’s My Lady paper from the Vintage Romance collection diagonally and used the half with the fan in the corner, which is almost invisible and therefore suited for a wedding card. Using only half a paper made the same side of the paper to be the outside part and thus the flowery border around the page made a beautiful trim in front of the card 🙂 I sewed the bottom part and decorated the flap:

Inside the envelope I placed a writing cardstock piece that I decorated with a stamped and embossed ornament. I also embossed the wedding rings on the plate that masks the ribbon on the flap:

I really like the way the card turned out and how the patterns on the paper provided a beautiful background!

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; butterflies: Prima, home&you; stamps: Lemonade, Inkadinkado; ribbon, pearls: my stash.

 

Thank you for visiting the blog today, drop by tomorrow for more inspiration!
