Welcome Maja friends!

Valentine’s day is just around the corner,

the right time for me to make some cards and tags for good friends, because it’s not only the day for romantics and those in love,
also to remember on beautiful and happy moments with loving people.

As I saw our newest paper collection ‘Celebrate’ I was inspired from the dancing people from the sheet ‘Charleston’, they radiate so much joy and love of life, right?!

I thought on old film classics, on the 20s and created two tags in vintage style. I prefer not so much colors, only brown,white and black because the motifs are very meaningful.

used Maja Design papers

 

some details

Firstly I used an embossing folder ‘Music notes’ and film stripe was made with a die cut,

at one point it was torn sideways to insert a text stripe.

Have you seen the lower margins on all the paper sheets, they are very suitable as addition. I used ‘You’re invited’.

Two happy dancing people were cut out, some flowers, pearls and a black feather, not more and the funny little tag was ready.

…. and a second inspiration with ‘You’re invited bs’ as background paper

Many thanks for your visit, I hope it was a little inspiration for you

Have a wonderful crafty time!

Hello, friends! I’m so happy you’ve stopped in for a visit. I hope you’re having a great day. It’s Nancy here, with a new card to share. I’m absolutely head over heels in love with Maja Design’s newest collection, Celebration, so I’m featuring it once again in today’s card.

Here you’ll find layers of distressed papers, pearls, lace, roses, and a billow of gowns. One thing is certain, when this stunning couple steps onto the dance floor, all eyes are on them. The image is fussy cut from the paper collection. There are so many lovely images to work with that the possibilities are endless. I’m inspired to pull out my detail scissors every time I pick up this collection.

The roses are handmade, with tiny paper roses added as a center. Below are a few photos of the details of the card.

Hi there! Finally here is my post. I have often gotten the question of how I make my cards, and now I have made a video showing how I have made this. It is made with the gorgeous papers from the new Celebration collection.

Here is the video:

I have also taken some more picture of the card.

All the flowers are made with the Maja papers, I have shown you how in the video.

Another closeup. I just love the blue colours, together with the beige.

A cute moon and some castles under a starry sky. Perfect for a princess.

And it is an easel card, like this from the side.

The beautiful papers used:

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja blog!

With love,

Thanks for 2017, Keren..!

Hello dear friends!

Evgenia Petzer with you today. I have another card in the same style and palette as the previous one I have shared recently. I call them sisters:_)  and usually make them in pairs, when I have some extra crafty time.

So its again Fika collection and again lots of flowers. I also had recently a major clen up and some sorting on my craft table and put my flairs in a special place where I can see them often and may be I will finally start using them and not only buying. I have a special thing for pretty paper, flowers, lace, resin embellishments and flairs:)

lots of close ups for you to have a look:

Lovely Fika collection:

Warm hugs,
