Hi everyone! I hope you are fine. I have had a little break making cards, for a month or so, but now I am back, and have made some cards ready to show. Here is the first one, using beautiful papers from the Vintage Summer Basics.

I have also added some butterflies, which are from the Vintage Spring Basics collection – 6th of May. I have added Stickels, Star Dust on to them.

The leaves are cut out from a sheet called 1933.

The image are from Magnolia, and coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. I think the distress colours fits all the Maja papers so well. The flowers, ribbons and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Some tags with suitable texts.

I hope you have enjoyed my latest card. I wish you a lovely day!

With love,

Hello crafty friends.  Jennifer Snyder here to present a snow globe shaker card celebrating Christmas in July using one of Maja Design’s wonderful Christmas collections, Holiday in the Alps.
Outside, it’s hot enough to melt a snowman in minutes, but inside my craft table is filled with frosty papers and smiling snowmen.  I love it!
Here are the papers used on this snowman snow globe shaker card:
Winter Ephemera – Side A and B
Snowmen – Side B
Snowflakes
 

 

The snow globe shaker is from Creative Embellishments and is filled with shaker mix from Buttons Galore and More.  Every shaker needs fabulous sequin shaker mix and this mix is glittery and shimmery like fresh fallen snow.

Thanks for stopping here today.

Good morning everyone! It is Camilla here today, showing you two boxes I made for baptism. One for a girl and the other for a baby boy. I have decorated the outside and the inside of the boxes with papers from the lovely Vintage Baby collection.

I have cut out all the parts using the Vintage Baby, except from the yellow colour, here I have used a sheet from the Vintage Spring Basics.

The dies used are from Magnolia, and a DooHickey Box. The text is from Stempelglede.

As you can see I have used the strip on the bottom of the MajaDesign pattern papers, and placed it around the top of the box (BABY BABY..).

To make the box I have cut out a Kraft Cardstock measuring 27 x 27 cm. Then I have folded it at 9 cm, 9 cm and 9 cm. And cut it out like you see under.

The vanilla bazzill papers are cut out 8,5 cm x 8,5 cm. Then the pattern papers 8 x 8 cm. I have inked the edges and sewed them together.

In the midle of the box I have placed a image that I have painted with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. I have glued it on a strip of plastic, and then bend it a bit at the end and glued it to the bottom of the box. It almost looks like the baby is flying. I have also cut out two clouds with Maja papers, and fastend them the same way.

At the bottom of the box I have also added some Sisal gras, and flowers from WOC.

The baby boy box are made the same way. Also here I have added a strip from the gorgeous Maja papers on the top of the box.

Here is another image, also from Magnolia, which I have coloured with Distresses.

The inside is decorated with a folder with a paper to write a greeting on. And also a pocket to put the gift in (money).

Here is a close up of the image. Also he is “flying”, as he is fasten to a plastic strip.

Text from Stempelglede: Wish you all the best for the future. I just love the cute paper behind the text.

It was really fun making the two boxes.

Thank you so much visiting the MajaDesign blog!

With love,

Baby girl

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,
