Hello! Welcome to the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy, and I’m thrilled you’re here with me. I hope you’re having a wonderful day.

I’m reflecting on time this week, as my youngest child  is about to graduate from university. How did all of those years slip away so quickly? They truly did fly by. I’m reminded to savor each precious moment, for time is a gift and memories are treasures. I’m drawing my inspiration for this card from Maja Design’s gorgeous Vintage Autumn Basics collection.

I begin by distressing, layering, and stitching design papers to form a base. All of the embellishments for this card are die cut from the Vintage Autumn Basics Collection. A double layer of vintage die cut clocks anchor the floral arrangement.

I have a tutorial for these roses here on the Maja Design Blog. Below, a border punch adds a lovely touch to strips of design paper. In the bottom corner you’ll find a stamped sentiment.

Hello, it’s Elena here today.

I’ve got used to create a lot of floral cards late winter, however it’s not easy to stop cards with Maja papers at all.

Sometimes I wonder what else I can do while creating my cards with Maja. New shapes, new floral composition or something else?

It ‘s really can be a challenge somehow, however I enjoy making them.

Recently I’ve started meking several similar cards at once. It saves me the time and allows to experiment with the paper layers, using almost the same sketch.

I do create vertical cards rarely. so it’s a good chance to try something new.

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today :)

When the days are still dull and short there’s no better remedy than some colour therapy! :) And so I returned to the bright and cheerful Summertime collection and created two cards. The first one is in red tones:

I layered and distressed some papers. Then I added a couple of paper straws as the background for my embellishments:

I added roses that correspond to the ones in the background and a cute heart frame:

I completed the design with some glistening gem stones:

And then I thought of fans of blue 😉 And made this card in a similar way:

Again, I layered papers and added some paper straws:

There’s an ornate frame too, inside which I placed a butterfly button:

The flower cluster in matching colours and beautiful lace complete the whole:

Here are the papers I used:

 

Other: art clay, gold paint: Martha Stewart; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; button: Lemoncraft; molds, paper straws, lace – my stash.

 

And which one do you like more?

See you soon!

Goodmorning Maja fans,

Oh how I love my beautiful Maja Design papers…..today I’d like to show you a little card with handmade flowers and a lot of bling which is totally not me but I loved making this card. This card is made out of four different collections but my base was the pretty “Summertime” collection. This is a card I made for my mother for the upcoming mothers day hihihi yes I am pretty early this time….

It’s a easel card made out of cream card stock and the flowers are made out of dies and I finished them off with some glass glitter and some mica powder to give it more shine. Also I added some bling swirls, some shine spray & cream prills.
