Hi everyone! Here is a card with a box I made for a babtism last weekend. It was so fun making the box, cutting out all the small parts with Maja Papers. I have used the cutest papers from the Vintage Baby Collection.

Here is a closer look on the baby clothing hanging there. I have used three different papers from the collection.

Also the papers clips are made with papers. I have added some frantage on to different parts of the papers.

The gorgeous flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have added a butterfly on the large flower. The butterfly is cut out from a paper sheet from Vintage Spring Basics. The text is written on my computer, and printed out on some thicker paper. The text “Til Dåpsbarnet” is stamped with a stamp from Stempelglede.

The box i measuring 14 x 15 cm. And is 2 cm width.

The ribbon used are also from WOC. Open the box, and you will find a baby girl inside. Here is a card matching the box.

I have used the same papers. And also similar embellishments.

 

The image is from Magnolia, as the dies used. And it is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers.

Hope you got some inspiration today! Thank you for visting the MajaDesign blog.

With love,

Hello Spring!

Hi everyone! I hope you and your families are ok in this strange and unreal days. We are staying positive and like everyone else, we can’t wait till this is over. Strangley enough this situation is taking more energy from me than I thought, and I haven’t manage to make many cards. But as I have some dates to post here on the blog, I have made this Spring card with some gorgeous MajaDesign Vintage Spring Basics papers.

I have cut out the cute bird house with some yellow Spring papers. The white you see here and there is white Gesso that I have painted with a flat broad brush.

Also the small butterflies are cut out from the gorgeous papers. There are sheets in the collection that are covered with butterflies, that you can cut our and put them on your creations.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The image is and many of the dies are from Magnolia. I have painted the image with Distress Ink re-inkers and Markers. I use from 2-3 hours painting one image. So it is not done in a sweep!

I have painted the image in pink, but I didn’t want to make a pink card. So I have toned it a bit down, using more yellow and beige papers from the Vintage Spring Basics collection. Only the feathers I have cut out are pink.

I hope you like my card! Thank you for visiting the MajaDesign blog today.

With love,

Happy Easter

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

Although Easter is supposed to be the most joyful celebration of the year, this year is different. We’re globally suffering from the pandemic and the feelings of joy, happiness and the glory of life through Christ’s resurrection seem distant and muted by the invisible virus and restrictions it put over our everyday life. But if we are to overcome this, we must stay strong! We must take care of ourselves and of others by – paradoxical as it is – distancing from them and not endangering anybody with unnecessary contact. Therefore I decided NOT to send Easter cards this year – so that post workers are safer and my family and friends as well. And that’s why I made just one card for this season and will be sending a photo of it with my wishes:

I made the card using the latest Maja collection, Little Street Cafe and used the largest X-cut dies to give it an egg form – just love making paper Easter eggs! 🙂

Although I make egg cards each year, I nonetheless try to include a different symbol every time. This year I decided to use the Paschal candle. It represents the light of  the risen Christ coming to the world, the light that dispels darkness, and the victory of life over death. Isn’t it a perfect symbol for these gloom days?

I decorated the Paschal with lilies – symbols of love, purity and resurrection and catkins – popular elements of Polish Easter palms. I embossed the stamped sentiment with gold ep and added some sequins for more festive glam.

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: X-cut, I Love Craft, Crat&You Design; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; stamp: Lemonade; sequins: my stash.

 

And so this is the card that I won’t be sending to anyone, but to everyone! 🙂 With heartfelt wishes of peace, blessing and joy to fill your hearts and homes.

Happy Easter!

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.
