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

Autumn is the season mostly associated with the beginning of another school year and with celebrating Teacher’s Day – in Poland it comes on October 14th. And for that occasion I made a set of two cards using the Miles Apart collection:

The cards share the same design, with stamped, embossed and hand-coloured images of books and pencils that I arranged into a pile and topped with chipboard feathers. I placed this combo upon a background composed of triangular pieces of papers. I finished the cards with a stamped quotation and mini flowers. One of the cards features green, brown and orange papers of the collection and I thought it would make a great card for a man:

For the other card I used the colour combo of green and pink patterns, so that it’s more feminine and delicate:

I simply love the versatility of this collection, suitable for such a wide range of themes and projects!

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Lemonade, Agateria; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts, chipboard: Miszmasz Papierowy; bling: Papermania.

That’s all for today, thank you very much for visiting and drop by soon for more inspiration from my talented friends from DT 🙂

Hello Maja Design Friends.  Jennifer Snyder here with some fresh picked fun using Maja Design’s new “Miles Apart” collection.

This is a “must have” collection with gorgeous soft roses, pale peach, light green, gingham patterns and all the exquisite vintage charm that sets Maja Design distinctively apart from any other paper company.   It really makes me smile because it’s so beautiful and fresh feeling.

The collection also has a 6×6 paper pad and the matching Monochrome collection, “Shades of Miles”  with just solids.  I used the “Walnut Brown” from the monochrome collection as a background frame for my card.

The papers used on the card are:
“A few words”
“Miss You”
“Stay Positive”
“Keep in touch”

 

I accented the card with some chipboard raspberries from Creative Embellishments.  They have been painted with acrylic paint and topped with a raffia bow to give the card a touch of nature.

 

 

Thanks for stopping and Happy Crafting.

 Hello.  Jennifer Snyder here today to share a sweet project made using Maja Design’s  newest collection, “Miles Apart”.   
 
I primarily used the “Miles Apart” 6×6 paper pad to “dress” the Julie Nutting paper dolls in my shadow box.  The background of the shadow box is the only 12×12 piece I used from the collection.  This sheet is call “A Phone Call”.  
 
Below is an image of the collection.  It’s soft and beautiful with delicate prints. 

 

Here are some simple instructions on how I made this sweet shadowbox using the new Carter and Carly doll stamps from Prima and Julie Nutting.
First,  I wanted Carter’s tire swing to actually move so I cut two layers to use as a sandwich, and added hemp string.
Next I stapled the string to the wooden box.  No worries because we will be covering and hiding the staples.

 

I added ribbon around the box to decorate but mostly to cover the staples.
Meet Carly.  She looks adorable in the Maja Design papers.  Plus the 6×6 prints are perfectly sized for the dolls.
I cut two layers to make her more durable especially because I am going to be bending the doll so she can sit.

 

I added a few finishing touches.  Carly and her doll are accented in gems from Buttons Galore.  These are from the new Doo Dadz collections.
Next, Carter had to put his baseball mitt down so he could swing.  The mitt is a 3D button also from Buttons Galore.

 

Thank you for stopping here today.  The new collection has shipped and should be showing up in stores soon.  You can check the store finder list for vendors.
Happy crafting.

 

Miles Apart – Wedding Exploding Box

Good morning Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

So the day has come: a new collection from Maja Design is being released right now! And I am absolutely smitten by this collection: it’s so classic Maja, but with a fresh air to it too, with stunning ephemera images and most beautiful soft colour palette. It’s as versatile as any Maja collection, even though it has a particular theme: missing some loved ones because we can’t see them as they are miles apart. I think it also fits well in the current times of the world pandemic, when many have to stay at homes due to lockdowns or quarantines. So these paper would be perfect for all those “thinking of you” and “miss you” cards or other projects, images of elderly people would be perfect for Grandparents’ Day projects. But the collection features some gorgeous flower designs as well, simply ideal for wedding or birthday cards and albums. And so today I bring you a wedding exploding box with my most favourite designs from the set 🙂

 

As usually, I decorated the box lid with a flower cluster, with wedding rings ribbon and some golden die-cut leaves. On the sides of the lids I used pieces of the signature strip – I just love those small patterns or sentiments ready to be used like this:

Then the outer walls feature the beautiful rose bouquets design, definitely my most favourite pattern!

Inside I put some money pockets and a tag for writing in wishes, and in the centre a filigree chipboard cake decorated with matching mini roses and a lace bow:

 

I really loved working with these papers and I’m sure you will too! What do you think of this collection?

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

 

Other: flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: Spellbinders, Magnolia; chipboard cake: Wycinanka.pl; sequins, ribbon, lace: my stash.

 

That’s all for today, I wish you a safe and happy summer time – see you soon!
