Hi everyone! Here I am with some confirmand cards for boys. I have used the fantastic Denim & Friends Collection!

Firstly I have two cards. I have cut out the shape of the vest, and used a Sizzix die for the bow. The text stamp is from Ett Trykk.

As my pupils are all Confirmands this year, I made them all a card.

I have painted with some white gesso here and there.

 

I also made some lollipop cards for two of the boys.

 

 

Here you also see how I decorate the back of the lollipop cards.

 

And here is the last one I have for today, the book card. A colleague of mine gave it to her son.

I made the front like the cards.

 

 

 

 

And here is the inside of the book card.

I have used many of the Denim & Friends papers, and also the monochrome papers. Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

With love,

Fairytale Florals Card

Hello, friends! I hope you’re enjoying a truly wonderful day. It’s Nancy with you on the blog, and I’m excited to share a new card. I have a friend in need of something special for a loved one battling a serious illness, so I’ve created this in hopes of providing a bit of cheer to her day. I gave quite a bit of thought to which papers to use, and for this project I am inspired by the beautiful pastels of the Sofiero collection.

It’s almost impossible to show glitter effects in photos (I rarely use it), but this card has glittery sparkle within the bouquet tumbling down the center for a ‘fairytale’ feel. The flowers are a mix of Prima and handmade. You’ll find the two that are handmade at the bottom of the floral spray, which are my first attempt at Foamiran flowers.

A label die and hand punched lace anchor the florals at the right edge.

The sentiment stamp below seems perfect for this project.

A loopy twine bow adds a feminine flourish. I love including bows of all types, and rarely feel like a card is finished without one. The interior provides ample of space for a personal message.

Maja Design Papers Used: 

Other Products Used: Heartfelt Creations Flower Die and Stamps, Foamiran, Tim Holtz Inks, Prima Flowers and Nest, Martha Stewart Glitter, Martha Stewart Lace Edge Punch, Spellbinders Labels Die, Archival Ink, Sentiment Stamp, Twine, Adhesive, Sewing Machine, Thread.

*Denim Love* Mini Tag album

Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer with you today. I have made the mini album on thick tags ( I have used the tim holt sizzix die for making the tags and cutting the papers from the great Denim and Friends collection).

For now I have put the pictures from the die cut sheet in the album, but they are not sticked and can be easily replaced by the real photos.

 as always, I prefer to use kraft/black accents in my masculine projects. And this collection was also calling for deep blue shades.  aren’t these pictures the cutest? they also come in the paper pads.  some close ups:  also all type of stars look great on the men voted projects, and if you find (or just color the hearts in black) even they will look appropriate here:)

the glorious Denim and Friends collection:

Have a lovely weekend,

Good morning, dear Visitors, welcome to the Maja Design blog 🙂

After a series of projects I created with the latest Celebration collection I return to one of my all-time favourites, Denim & Friends. I just love the colours and patterns of these papers! And here’s the layout I made:

The design of the page is my version of the clean&simple style 😉 I didn’t want to cover the beautiful background paper too much, so I matted the photo with just a couple of tags and a flower cluster mounted on a chipboard clock face:

I also decorated the paper with some stamping and a delicate brick pattern that I added with a stencil and modeling paste. The art clay angel wing adds some lightness to the darker colours:

I die-cut the layout title from the brown Monochromes set matching the collection – I’m so happy Maja started to release the plain papers sets, they save the pain of sacrificing beautiful patterned papers for matting and small elements 😀

Though it’s not the classic clean&simple page, I still like the way it turned out – light and fresh 🙂 What do you think?

And here’s the list of supplies I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: die: Kesi’art; stamp: My Favourite Things; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; stencil: Tim Holtz; chipboard: Wycinanka, button: Lemoncraft; wing mold: Prosvet.

 

Thank you for visiting today and see you later 🙂
