Hello Maja Friends,

It’s Elena here to share with you the baby cards I made for the 1st Year Anniversary

Each time I play with Vintage baby collection I really enjoy the colors and the patterns it has. And since it is not easy to create for the boys with no flowers for me – I like focusing on the paper layers

I used mostly the stars, oval and circle shapes to arrange on my cards, but I mounted all the layers on the crochet lace to soften the image.

I also added a few leaves – the paper and the fabric one and for the accents I used the blue buttons – quite a rare thing that I add to my projects.

Thank you for stopping by

Hello Lenet here again ,

Today I bring you this card, with a little tutorial.

For this card you need a piece of paper of  6 by 12 inches.

Score it at 1,5″ – 3″ – 5,5″ and 8 inch. and fold it like the picture below

Than measure  1 inch from top and bottom of the first fold and 0,5 inch from the second like you see in the picture below.

 

than cut away those parts and you get  what you see on this picture.

Now we can start decorating the card.

I took 20 inch lace and glued it in the middle to the front of the first flap.  With this I’m going to close the card.

 

For the front I took a square piece of paper of 2.5/8 inch , and gave it a little pocket by folding a doily around one corner.

And made a little ticket to put in it.

 

For this card I used the vintage romance collection and took two diecuts  from the diecutsheet.

The one  with the doves is glued to one half of the second flap /fold , just like the top square other wise you can’t close the card.

of course you can decorate it to your own liking but keep in mind not to use bulky embellishments .

I hope  you like my card and my tutorial , happy crafting and till next time.

Confirmation Cards

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

This week my elder son will ccelebrate his Confirmation. And suddenly I realised I have never made a Confirmation card before! 🙂 So today I bring you two cards for this occasion, one for a girl and the other for a boy.

I kept the design pretty simple, with light background papers, delicate flower combos and filigree chipboard pieces. I decided not to use patterned papers in the background and instead added some texture with die-cut doilies.

The girl’s version features traditional pink tones:

… and the boy’s card goes with blue:

I think they turned out quite nice, delicate and fit for the occasion. And I really like the subtle look with Monochrome papers in the background, with just a hint of a pattern and still very decorative. What do you think?

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Prima, Cheery Lynn Designs; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard: SnipArt; acrylic stones: Prima.

That is all for today, thank you for visiting and come back tomorrow for more inspiration from my DT friends 🙂

Hello, dear friends! Evgenia Petzer with you today. I have made another masculine card this time. I really love mixing my tender shabby chic works with these masculine, a bit grungy projects. I prefer to use Denim and Friends collection for these type of works.

some close ups:

I love to add wood elements to my projects, I have covered the chipboard element with the frontage embossing powder.

some black accents in different textures and shapes

I have used the Denim and Friends collection:

Have a great day,

Spring Tea Room

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.

Thank you so much for joining us on the blog today! It’s such an honor to be here with you. I hope your week is filled with joy and cozy crafty hours.

Hugs,
