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

As each Maja Design collection, Little Street Cafe has a specific theme, but at the same time is versatile enough to be used for almost any kind of project. And today I’m bringing you a baby girl page using these beautiful papers 🙂

The collection features a vibrant palette of several colours, but it is really easy to opt for a monochromatic project. I selected mauve and pink papers and added a touch of white and gold to create light, delicate background for a sweet photo of my goddaughter.

First I layered background papers and applied a wreath motive upon them with a stencil and white texture paste. Then I filled each wreath with flowers:

I die-cut the title word from gold metallic cardstock and applied it upon a wired heart:

I also added some sequins for a bit of girly glam 🙂

I really like the way it turned out; light, subtle and delicate like the baby in the photo 🙂 What do you think?

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts, Prima; die: Kesi’Art; stencil: Agateria; diecuts, wired heart: Prima; mold: Prosvet; sequins: my stash.

 

That is all for today, thank you so much for visiting and don’t forget to drop by soon for more inspiration!

Hello Maja Friends,

It’s Elena here to share with you the baby cards I made for the 1st Year Anniversary

Each time I play with Vintage baby collection I really enjoy the colors and the patterns it has. And since it is not easy to create for the boys with no flowers for me – I like focusing on the paper layers

I used mostly the stars, oval and circle shapes to arrange on my cards, but I mounted all the layers on the crochet lace to soften the image.

I also added a few leaves – the paper and the fabric one and for the accents I used the blue buttons – quite a rare thing that I add to my projects.

Thank you for stopping by

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

It’s been a while since I did some colouring, so for today’s post I decided to create a set of two baptism cards, for a boy and girl, that feature a hand-coloured stamped image. And here it is:

I kept the same design for both cards, just changing the colour paletter between girly pink and boyish turqouise 🙂 The design is very simple: layered panels of papers, the top one with a decorative border that you can cut using decorative scallop scissors, or even hand cut, so you don’t even need dies.

Then I placed the image of a sleeping baby that I coloured with Distress inks:

…and added a heat-embossed stamped sentiment with baptism formula in Polish and surrounded it with flowers:

I mounted the particular layers on 3D foam for some nice dimension:

There is also a bit of glam to the cards with subtle golden shine of the embossed stamp and crystal and pearl drops.

I wanted to keep the cards simple but elegant – and I think I succeded in that 🙂 What do you think?

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Lemonade, Whiff of Joy; flowers, vintage ribbon: Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: Spellbinders; pearls, crystals, string: my stash.

And that’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later!

 

To my vintage baby!

Hi everyone! I am back with a paper bag card for a baby. An what isn’t more perfect than to use the cutest baby collection from Maja Design called Vintage Baby!

Behind the image from Stempelglede I have placed a tag from the paper called “Die cuts”.

The words are written on my computer and printed out.

Here you can see the tag inside. I love the teddy bears and the stars on the paper!

Some close ups:

The butterflies are stamps from Stempelglede, and I have coloured them with Distress ink. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. This card was also published in the magazine Ett Trykk for the August issue.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Blog today!

With love

Hello Baby Girl

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

Recently I got some cutest photos of my cousin’s precious baby girl and of course I couldn’t resist making layouts with some of them 😉 And for my today’s post I’m sharing one of those pages:

I chose the beautiful Marriage Proposal paper from the Vintage Romance collection for my background. I added some colour along the border with Distress ink and then stamped peony silhouettes:

I matted the photo with pieces from the Sofiero and Denim&Friends collections that matched the photo colour scheme. Then I added my floewr cluster mimicking the one in the picture:

I extended it into a cascade blending into the stamped pattern and glitter-covered chipboard flourishes:

I composed the title using epoxy and paper stickers. Then I added some sequins and gemstones as the finishing touch:

I mounted the layers of papers on pieces of cardboard (great way to use up delivery boxes 😉 ) so they don’t look flat against the flowers. And I really love the dimension it gives!

What do you think?

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Altenew; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; stickers: American Crafts, Piątek Trzynastego; chipboard: Miszmasz Papierowy; Distress inks, glitter: Ranger; sequins, bling: my stash.

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and keep dropping by for more inspiration every day!
