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

In some countries the first adult birthday comes when you turn 21, but in many, Poland including, it’s as early as 18. It’s usually an occasion to throw a big party and celebrate entering adulthood while still being entitled to behave like a teenager 🙂 And it’s a great occasion to give a handmade card too, isn’t it?

I was really happy when my all-time favourite collection Denim&Friends got its girly partner 🙂 I love the images sheet, the colours and patterns that refer to and complete the masculine papers. And to celebrate this new addition to the Maja paper family I decided to make the cards with these two collections. Both feature images in the centre of design and navy blue accents.

The girl’s version adds a touch of pink and a bit of glamour with crystal gems and the digits cut out from gold metallic mirror cardstock:

In the card for a boy I added some steampunk elements also die-cut from gold cardstock. Just as in the girl’s card I incorporated the “You’re a star” phrase – in the previous card it was printed in the background paper, here it’s a snippet of the signature strip:

I really like the way the cards turned out – simple but pleasant to the eye 🙂 What do you think?

And here’s what I used:

Maja Desing papers:

Other: dies: Rosy Owl, Joy! Crafts; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; crystals: Prima.

 

And when do you celebrate the first adult birthday in your country?

Hello, our blog fans. I haven’t been here often lately. I’m really sorry. I really hope to post regularly from now on. I received the newest collection but didn’t have time to play with. Today I will show you a really easy card – perfect for any occasion.

I really like to compose a basic background. Combine few collections. Mix & Match is really funny!

I also used to buy digital graphics – like this time I bought the image with birds.

I’m looking forward to working with Denim&Friends. Hope you will like my today’s card. Hugs, Paulina

Hi everyone! Here comes my inspiration card. My sister in law has graduated from nurse school now, and I made her this card. She was so happy when I gave it to her, so it was all worth making it! 🙂 I am so proud of her, and all she accomplish!

And what is better than to use this lovely papers from the Summertime collection! They are really beautiful!

This is the first image where I have tried out my new water colour paper. It is called Bockingford, and is 300 g hot pressed. I use brushes size 0 and 00.

The flowers are from Petaloo, and the small ones are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Image and dies are from Magnolia. The shape if the card is made with Go Kreate dies.

 

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja blog.

With love,

Good morning Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

In less than a fortnight Polish schoolchildren will be free from school until September 🙂 So it’s an intensive time of last chances to get better grades and thank your teachers. And so for today I have two simple thank you teacher cards to share:

Just as with the Denim&Friends collection, I wanted to check whether the feminine version, Denim&Girls, would make masculine projects too 😉 And so I used these papers to make a feminine and a masculine card. I used the same design for both cards, so only the paper patterns make a difference. The she-teacher card features a hint of pink and some flower patterns:

And the he-teacher version shows off some geometrical designs and darker colour palette:

And so again, it turns out you can use Maja Design papers for any project and theme, and you are not limited to its original theme 🙂

Here’s what I used for my cards:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: Spellbinders; stamp: Lemonade; brads: Craftmania; charms: my stash.

I hope the teachers who get the cards would feel appreciated! After all, they are like second parents to our kids 🙂

See you soon!

Hi everyone! It’s Camilla here again with a card I made with the lovely papers from the Vintage Spring Basics Collection.

Here I have made a window with a birdhouse inside. The dies used are from Magnolia.

Here you can see a close up of how the birdhouse is built up.

Just love working with these beautiful Maja papers. As you can see I have added Fran-tage here and there.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!
