Hello, friends! It’s Nancy here, wishing you a warm welcome to the Maja Design Blog. I hope you’re having a lovely Tuesday. I can’t believe it’s the first week of September, with many parts of the world ushering in the first signs of autumn. Mother nature isn’t quite ready for fall in my sub-tropical corner of the world, where she’s gifting us with sunny, hot, and humid days.

The heat draws me to all things cool and refreshing, and once again Maja Design’s gorgeous Coffee in the Arbour collection comes to the rescue. The soft blues and raspberry hues are just what I’m looking for.

The papers are distressed, layered, and stitched to form a base. A trio of circles draw the eye across the card. The first is die cut from the center layers and popped up for dimension. The circular resin frame is layered over another die cut circle to the left.

Handmade and purchased blooms cascade from right to left, accented die cut leaves, glass pearls, and twine bows. The sentiment is hand stamped onto design paper.

The lower corner to the right features berry vines and ‘Raspberry Lemonade’ from the design paper, which are my inspiration for this card.

Hello dear friends! Evgenia Petzer with you today. I have prepared the romantic card with Sofiero papers that will fit any occasion. It has nice shape and lots of flowers as well as some die cuts and chipboard.

A very good morning to you, dear Visitors to the Maja Design blog :)

The summer is coming to an end, but we shouldn’t let our spirits go down! Today I have two birthday cards to share, and their common element is the blue palette and a motif connected with flying high above :)

The first one features an angel wing in the flower cluster:

I layered papers from the Vintage Frost collection, placed the sentiment stamp with a button in the centre and surrounded it with flowers and leaves. I also added some pearl brads and liquid pearls.

The central motif of the second card is an air balloon surrounded by flowers:

I used scraps of the Vintage Romance papers to make a shabby patchwork background, placed the chipboard layered balloon upon it and decorated it with mini roses and crystal flourishes.

Spring Flower Card

Goodmorning dear Maja Design Fans,

Don’t you just love the new Denim & Friends collection? It totally rocks for me because of it’s versatility…you can go masculine but also very feminine so for today I did the last one. I went for a girly spring card with a bunch of flowers, chipboard pieces and some shimmery embellishments. I took out the teal colors form the Denim & Friends collection to match my flowers which are by Petaloo & 49 and Market.

The chipboard pieces are treated with gesso, spray, paint and metallique wax. I took out a clear sheet and a script stencil by The Dusty Attic and added paste on the clear sheet then I lifted the outer border a little with foam tape. The text is a clear stamp by Joy and I also added a piece of ribbon and a flair {which I totally love to use btw}

The sequins are by “Dress My Craft” and are called play with green {but I think they look really teal tho}….this was a super fun card to make and I think I will make more of them. On the outer line paper I did some stitch like stripes to finish my card and at the end I added some sprays.

Hello our blog friends. My today’s proposal is a notebook made with the Summer Crush Collection. I think this notebook will stay with me for a little longer….

Memories never fade Memories never fade Memories never fade Memories never fade Memories never fade Memories never fade Memories never fade DSC_0597I love every single details of these papers. It is already second paper-set used by me. I keep every single element to use for cut some leafs or tiny circles. I will not write how I compose all layers cause this time it’s not so difficult. Simple but at the same time spectacular. I’m rally happy with the final result and the most important thing for me is to have fun. We create for enjoyment  – remember it. Of course we have some trends … but try to follow  your heart and keep a projects in your style.

Memories never fade… do you agree ?
