 Hello Maja Design friends. Jennifer Snyder here to share an anniversary card I created for my parents, using the Celebration collection.

My parents will be celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary this week so I needed to create a special card but not overly frilly and embellished.  I thought the Celebration collection was a perfect fit because the beautiful patterns are very neutral yet eye catching and gorgeous.
Here are the papers I used from the collection:
Welcome and Good Times (A and B sides of paper)
My parents are very earth natural people so the browns from the collection will be nice.
The card was embellished using chipboard from Creative Embellishments. The chipboard words sum of the essence of their 60 years of marriage – a family filled with love.
The chipboard family frame was backed with lace to set is apart from the paper layer underneath.
One last close up of gorgeous Maja Design paper layers on this card.

 Thank you for stopping today.   Happy crafting.

Hi everyone! I am back with a tag this time, using the lovely collection Coffee in the Arbour.

Lots of pink to match the pattern papers. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the image and dies used are from Magnolia.

The image is coloured with Distress Ink, reinkers and Markers.

I have added some corrugated papers behind the image. And painted with white Gesso here and there.

A beautiful butterfly cut out twice to make the double wings.

Some tags where I have used Bazzill paper, and added a pink ring made of Maja papers.

 

The text is embossed with white embossing powder and a heat gun. All the paper edges are sewed with a sewing machine.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja design blog today. Have a wonderful September!

With love,

Just For You

Hello sweet Maja fans.

Lenet here and today I bring you this card with lots of layers .

 

For this card I used the 6×6″ paperpad of Denim and Girls and the 12×12″ sheet Romantic Blouse of the Denim and Girls collection.

I used the Romantic Blouse sheet to cut out the flowers that I tucked between the layers and behind the glittered heart. I used some little pieces of foame tape to give them some dimension.

As a finishing touch I added some bling using Nuvo Crystal Gems, and a little red heart in the corner from the cherry hearts also from nuvo pure sheen gemstones.

I hope you like the card I made for you this week.

Thank you for visiting and hope to see you back soon.

Rustic Glam – A Patchwork Card

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

If you have seen my last post tehn you’ve seen the reason for today’s post too 🙂 Previously I shared two birthday card for a boy and a girl, in which I used – among others, of course – the Paisley bs and Loose fit bs papers. I was then left with pieces too small to be used for card panels, but still too large to be thrown away – I think you know what I mean 🙂 And so I punched a couple of squares and used them to make a patchwork background for a rustic flowery card:

I basically followed the colour palette of the Denim&Girls collection – pink, blue and navy blue – to which I added a touch of gold and a bit of glam with pearl cardstock, gold embossing powder and iridescent sequins:

I placed the stamped and embossed sentiment in the centre and matted it with die-cut doily and flower clusters.

It beautifully glimmers against the light:

And I really love how it turned out – rustic and simple yet glamorous and elegant. What do you think?

For the card I used the following products:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Cheery Lynn Designs, Sizzix, CreaLies; stamp: Latarnia Morska; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; punch: dpCraft, sequins: my stash.

 

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you soon!

Hello, Jennifer Snyder here to share a card made using the wonderful and versatile  Denim & Girls collection and the coordinating Monochrome-Shades of Denim collection.
These are the papers I selected from the collection.
Roses
Floral Top
Monochrome – Off White

The papers are versatile because the patterns inspire so many moods – from delicate to bold, calm to dramatic, sporty to feminine and even masculine.  That’s quite amazing for one collection to capture so many moods and feelings.
I went with calm and peaceful.
In addition to Maja Design papers, I used a new Spellbinders die designed by Becca Feeken called Shapeabilities Brillante Rondelle – from the Vintage Treasures collection.
The card has a clean feel with a hint of vintage being embellished with a vintage button and tiny string pearls.

 Thank you for stopping.

I hope you have set aside a bit of  “YOU time” today to enjoy some calm and peace in your life.
