Hello, crafty friends! Welcome to the Maja Design Blog. It’s Nancy back today with a new card to share. We’ve had temperatures between 70-80 degrees in my corner of the world. Our Camellia’s are in full bloom and spring is in the air, at least for the moment. It really has me feeling like springtime has arrived, and hence the inspiration for this card, the spring tea room!

The spring tea room is a unique traditions of the southern United States. Each spring local churches host a daily tea for a week or two. They come complete with lovely music, the most delectable homemade luncheon choices, scrumptious desserts, and of course, tea! Each lady is escorted to their table by a formally clad southern gentleman. It’s all very genteel, and after enjoying your dining experience you can shop from a vast variety of handmade items and goodies in the tea room shop. If you’re ever visiting this region you should definitely plan to attend a church tea room.

Maja Design’s beautiful ‘Coffee in the Arbour’ paper collection is the absolute perfect paper collection to bring this card to life.

There are several stitched base layers and much dimension throughout, though it is difficult to capture it on camera.

The blooms are handmade from the paper collection and sit atop a chipboard frame featuring flowers and flourishes. A dusting of gesso tones down some of the brighter color. It’s a little trick you can use when you want to achieve a more muted look.

The tea embellishments are fussy cut from the paper collection.

Below is a peek at the interior of the card.

Maja Design Papers Used: 

Other Products Used: Chipboard Frame, Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Dies, Flower Shaping Tools, Flower Stamens, Gesso Twine, Sewing Machine, Thread.

Hugs,

Hello sweet Maja Fans,

Lenet here and today I bring you this Valentine card,

I used papers of the Christmas Season collection for this card  just to show you that the Christmas collections are not just for Christmas projects and Christmas season .

As you see  you can use them very well for other projects like a Valentine card.

 

As center piece I used a chipboard heart that I decorated with red polkadot  back side of  the Holly Jolly paper , distressed the edges and put a heart shaped lock on it.

I made a dangle with the key to the heart and attached it to the heart .

The flowers are from Prima Marketing and wild orchid crafts.

For the Card itself I used the back sides of : Deck the halls , Merry Night and Gift Shopping.

I’m so happy the Mood board challenges are back again! I always think the are a big inspiration , and it gave me the inspiration to make this card.

Did you take a look at this months  Moodboard? There is still time to get isnpired and join the challenge, first prize is a collection of your choice!

I think that is a very good reason to enter don’t you? So come on and give it a try! can’t wait to see what you create.!

Foe both if these cards I have just used the paper pad and fussy cut some elements from the Vintage Spring Die cut sheet.

Hello! I send a warm winter welcome from all of us at the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy here on this beautiful Monday. I hope everyone is staying toasty and finding ways to conquer to the chill in the air. The flu got the best of me these last few weeks, but I’m finally recovered and so thankful to be back with you all.

My  favorite activity for a cold, damp day is spending cozy time in my craft room. That is exactly what I did this weekend, so I have a new card to share with you! I had some extra papers left from Maja Design’s newest collection, Christmas Season, and want to share ways you can incorporate holiday papers into your projects once Christmas has passed. This versatility of every Maja Design collection is just one of the wonders of their beautiful papers.

Today’s ‘all occasion’ card is monochromatic and focuses on the gorgeous shades of blue that are abundant in this collection. I feel like blues are always ideal for winter creations.

Stitched layers form a base for the florals and various embellishments, which come together to create a peaceful and wintery focal point.

Below is a view of the interior of the card.

 

Maja Design Papers Used:

Other Products Used: Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Dies, Flower Shaping Tools, Tim Holtz Alterations Ephemera, Wooden Key, Purchased Small Paper Flowers, Glass Pearls, Prima Resin Frame, Twine, Sewing Machine, Thread.
