Hi there Maja fans! I hope you all are fine in this unsurreal times. The corona virus has hit Norway hard, but also the rest of the world. I am thinking of card making friends in Italy and Spain now. I hope you are all alright. I am isolating myself at home mostly of the time, as I am lucky to be able to have a home office. For today I have a heart shaped card to show you. I did the colouring with Distresses some time ago, but have put it together the last days. I hope you like it, and know that my heart is with you.

The papers used are from the lovely Little Street Cafe Collection. I will show you which ones at the end of this post.

The image and dies used are from Magnolia. Also the heart die I have used to make the shape of the card.

I have also used the Maja papers to make the flowers. They are cut out with dies, and put together to a beautiful Maja flower.

Under is a close up of more Maja flowers.

Here are the papers used:

Take care everyone!

With love,

 

A day to celebrate

Hello Sweet Maja Fans.

Lenet here and today I made you this celebration card.

It’s one that can be used for many occasions , always handy to have some of these in stock.

I made this one using the  6″x 6″ paperpack of Denim and girls.

Here I have a close up  from the centerpiece for you.

The flowers all come from my own stock .

The ticket stamp is an old one , I believe from Autumn Leaves.

I hope you all like my card, don’t forget to come back for more inspiration by the other Maja Girls.

And for now stay safe.

Hello Maja Design friends.  Jennifer Snyder here with a Spring/Easter card that is sweet as can be.  Since Spring and Easter are hopping into our lives, I thought I’d start my Easter cards to help chase away the cold, dull winter blues and welcome the sunny warmth.  
 
Maja Design’s beautiful “Little Street Cafe” collection is the perfect paper choice to help celebrate, with it’s warm rose pinks and yellows.
 
Something Sweet and Tea Please combined with the coordinating Monochrome collection, Shades of Cafe: 

 

 
The Monochrome collection, Shades of Cafe are 12×12 sheets of solid colored cardstock, perfectly coordinated to match with the papers of the Little Street Cafe collection.  The monochromes help take the stress out of trying to match cardstock with Maja Design’s amazing patterned papers.   
 

 This happens to be a shaker card made using dies from Spellbinders monthly die clubs and shaker mix from Buttons Galore and More.  I love making shakers because I know they bring smiles to those who open the card.  Who wouldn’t smile when seeing a shaker card made just for them?

Thank you for sharing your time.

Hello Friends.  Jennifer Snyder here sharing a virtual cup of coffee with my Maja Design friends, and chatting about beautiful paper collections, shaker cards, and crafty fun.

That’s what this post is all about – how wonderful lovely cheery papers make us feel.  Maja Design’s  ‘Little Street Cafe” collection is certainly top on my list of gorgeous collections with it’s warn tones of pink and golden yellow.

 

If you are not familiar with Maja Design’s monochrome  companion collections, here’s a little information that will help.  They are solid color sheets perfectly matched to accent the patterned papers; great for backgrounds, borders, die cutting and blending your paper-craft passion.
In addition to the Monochrome collection, Shades of Cafe, I used the following papers for my card:  Sunshine and the Die Cut sheet.
The die cut selected says,

“Happiness is a cup of coffee shared with a friend.”

Nothing is better than sharing a real cup of coffee with a friend,  but I came up with the “next best thing” which is the shaker cup of coffee.  This is a fun interactive shaker card that will put a smile on that friend’s face.
The chipboard shaker cup of coffee is from Creative Embellishments, and the fun shaker mix is from Buttons Galore and More.  It’s a fun combination of sequins and beads bringing joy to me coffee cup.
  Thank you for stopping here today.  Happy crafting.

Love Is In The Air

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

This week ends on a very pleasant note – we’re going to celebrate St. Valentine’s Day! And for this occasion I created two cards in different styles that can be used to express your feelings 🙂

Both cards were made using the latest collection, Little Street Cafe. The first one features a more pinky-red colour combo with a touch of green:

The focal point is a hand-coloured with markers stamped image, placed upon a mini hearts patterned paper and decorated with mini roses, tiny heart charm and a stamped sentiment embossed with glitter ep. Details of the image are also accented with glitter:

The other card uses more purple colour tones and has a less “cute” look, so to say 😉 It would therefore be perfect for a man or for a lady who doesn’t like flowers that much 😉

I kept the design pretty simple, with a large metal charm in the shape of angel wings as the main decorative element. I added a die-cut sentiment and metal screw-like brads.

Which one do you like more?

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Die-Namics, Spellbinders; stamps: Penny Black, Lemonade; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; brads: Rayher; charms: my stash.

 

That is all for today, thank you for visiting! Have a lovely St.Valentine’s Day!
