From the Heart

Hello, and welcome! How is your day going? I’m so happy you’ve joined us at the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy today, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be here with you. While looking through my recent projects, I realized it’s been a very long time since I’ve used one of my favorite collections, Vintage Autumn Basics. The beautiful purples and mauves from this lovely collection always call to me, and are the inspiration for my card.

The papers are so versatile that twine is the only embellishment that is not created from the collection.

The roses and leaves are handmade using design paper. I hope to have a new rose tutorial ready for you on my next post. I meant to have it for you today, but because we have the flu in our home the smallest things (like editing photos) seem insurmountable.  Happily, we are all recovering, so a tutorial will be following shortly.

The layered heart is die cut from design paper, then stitched on the sewing machine and fanned out to create dimension.

The vintage image, sentiment, and flourishes are also from the paper collection. You can see how easy it is to create a card filled with coordinating embellishments with nothing except a pack of Maja Design papers!

A twirly twine bow adds a final frilly touch.

Maja Design Papers Used:

Other Products Used: Natural Twine, Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Dies, Flower Shaping Kit, Flourish Die, Spellbinders Heart Die, Magnolia Rose Leaf Die, Tim Holtz Distress Tool, Sewing Machine, Thread. 

Thank you so much for stopping by! It’s a great pleasure and an honor for me to join you on the blog. I hope you have a day filled with sunshine and wondrously joyful moments!
