Good morning, dear Maja Fans, welcome to the blog today ๐Ÿ™‚

I really love the look of shaker box projects. They offer some dimension and fun elements and are simply interesting to look (and play!). But I seldom make shaker box cards. And when I decided to make a welcome baby shaker card, I was quickly reminded why.

First of all, it’s easy to make shakers with square or rectangular shapes, but not so easy with other, even as basic as the circle. The capsule must be sealed tight so that the contents of the shaker do not fall out. I made many of shakers using adhesive foam squares, but with round shapes they might still leave tiny gaps, so I decided to die-cut round frames and stack them up to make the shaker box, thinking it would save me some time. Boy, was I wrong! To make a 0,5 cm high frame I had to die cut 8 pieces and then glue them one by one together. By the fourth layer the frame started to get crooked no matter how precise I tried to be! The frame is pretty thin, so that was the problem. But finally I managed to create a more or less even frame.

The next problem appeared with the window. I use thick laminating foil for my shakers and with smaller elements I never had any problems, but with this pretty large window the sequins I put in were jumping out or clinging to the foil due to the static electricity. I used soem anti-static spray to deal with it, some also use anti-static powders or pads that are designed for embossing. Finally I was able to assemble my card ๐Ÿ™‚

I kept the design very simple so that the shaker remains the main focus. I only added some more die-cuts and a couple of pom-poms to decorate the frame and added a stamped and embossed sentiment.

The image inside the shaker is coloured with Kuretake Twin markers. I accented the details with glitters to get an ombre effect on the moon:

It wasn’t easy, it wasn’t quick, but I still like the result. Do you? ๐Ÿ™‚

The list of supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Whimsy Stamps, Lemonade; dies: CreaLies, ScrapMan; pom-poms, glitter cardstock: my stash.

Do you make shaker box projects?

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and drop by tomorrow!

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today ๐Ÿ™‚

Ah, masculine projects! Who finds them easy to make? Even being the only woman in the house doesn’t make me any smarter. But luckily Maja Design has one of the best masculine papers and therefore Deim&Friends is my all-time favourite ๐Ÿ™‚ And since we are going to celebrate Boy’s Day soon (in Poland it’s on September 30th), I decided to make some masculine cards.

I was inspired by the Snapshots paper from the collection, in which you can see the torsos, but not the faces – and having a men’s outfits dies in my collection, I thought it would be fun to follow the pattern ๐Ÿ™‚ And it was, really, a great fun to put pieces together like in the old days of making paper dolls!

The first card is more elegant and would be perfect for birthday or graduation. I assembled a suit with a shirt and bowtie and placed it upon the background that reminds me of a pattern on my husband’s silk scarf. Then I added some glam with midnight blue glitter on the chipboard sentiment:

The other card would be great for a teenager, a birthday or congratulations card:

I die cut pieces to assemble a casual shirt and die-cut the number in it. Then I added a signature strip with the words “You rock”, a star charm and a sentiment matted with metallic copper cardstock:

And I really like the way the cards turned out – simple, but fun and with a touch of glam, as who likes to shine more than our men? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Marianne Design, Sizzix, Rosy Owl; chipboard: Scrapiniec; string, charm: my stash.

 

What about you? Do you like making masculine projects or suffer if you have to make them?

See you soon!

Hello sweet Maja fans.

Lenet here and today I bring you this card with lots of layers .

 

For this card I used the 6×6″ paperpad of Denim and Girls and the 12×12″ sheet Romantic Blouse of the Denim and Girls collection.

I used the Romantic Blouse sheet to cut out the flowers that I tucked between the layers and behind the glittered heart. I used some little pieces of foame tape to give them some dimension.

As a finishing touch I added some bling using Nuvo Crystal Gems, and a little red heart in the corner from the cherry hearts also from nuvo pure sheen gemstones.

I hope you like the card I made for you this week.

Thank you for visiting and hope to see you back soon.

Good morning, dear Maja Fans, welcome to the blog today ๐Ÿ™‚

Summer has traditionally been a wedding season and so wedding cards have been in great demand too.ย  I like to keep a small stash of cards just in case, and therefore today I’m sharing two cards that differ by the colour only:

I kept the design pretty simple, so it would be easy to recreate the card in any colour – I used neutral sand as the background for the stencil heart shape filled with flowers:

I also included a layer of patterned paper, choosing the Comfy sheet from the Denim&Girls collection, as it perfectly corresponds to the leafy heart motif:

I completed the design with acrylic opalescent hearts some cheesecloth and an embossed chipboard sentiment:

The same is true for the other card in the turqouise palette:

In the Denim&Friends collection you will find the Jeans&T-shirt paper that has the same leafy pattern but in turqouise ๐Ÿ˜‰

And I really like the dimension the flowers give:

I like the way they turned out: simple, yet elegant and delicate. What do you think?

Here’s what I used:

Other: stencil: Agateria; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard: Scrapiniec; acrylic hearts, string, cheesecloth: my stash.

 

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