Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
New year, new beginnings, they say 🙂 So for my first post in the new year I bring you a first project I made using the brand new collection, Little Street Cafe. I fell in love with this collection the very moment I opened my DT box – what a treat! One of the more vibrant colour palettes in the Maja stock, with juicy yellows and oranges paired with deep burgundy and sand beige, and all while keeping the classic vintage Maja style with its charasteristic plaids, stripes and flower designs. And don’t forget the ephemera sheet! Soo beautiful! I already have some ideas for this collection, but today I bring you a card for grandparents, as is Poland we’re going to celebrate Grandma’s Day on January 21st and Grandpa’s Day the next day.
I must admit I had difficulties choosing the papers for my first project, as all are equally tempting 😉 but eventually I decided upon on of the plaids and flower patterns for the backgound. For the top layer I cut out a panel with a street view – so perfect for the stamped image I chose for my focal element:
I added stamped sentiments and an acrylic heart that also matches the papers’ colours:
The flower pattern on the background paper gave me the idea for the mini roses cluster I added in the lower corners:
The card turned out slightly too dimensional to go into an envelope, so I added a card box too:
I really love how this card turned out, with its vibrant colours and beautiful paper patterns!
Here’s my supply list:

Other: stamps: Penny Black, Lemonade; dies: CreaLies; chipboard: Scrapiniec; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; markers: Kuretake.
Do you celebrate Grandparent’s Day/s in your countries?
See you soon!
