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

Just like last time, today I bring you a Baptism inspiration, but this time I created a delicate baby girl exploding box:

For the box I combined the Celebration and Miles Apart collections, choosing some deliate floral patterns and neutral backgrounds:

I decorated the lid with a stamped and embossed sentiment and a flower cluster:

When you remove the lid, the box opens to reveal the inside:

I decorated the inned walls with die-cut motives, flower compositions and some stamped wishes. To add some glam, I used acrylic gems and iridescent sequins:

In the centre I put a box including a jewellery gift, but replaced the original box lid with a handmade one decorated with a die-cut doily and a signature strip pieces 🙂 The box is tied with ribbon that is attached to the exploding box bottom – this way you can remove the gift box without having to rip it off 😉

I think exploding boxes are best when you need to include a small gift or money – they work as both a card and gift box 🙂

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Agateria, Lemonade; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: Craft&You Design, Cheery Lynn Dies; gems: Marianne Design; ribbon: Rayher; sequins, string: my stash.

That’s all for today, see you next time!

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

A couple of years ago I made two Baptism cards using papers with very delicate patterns. Going through my pics the other day I found those cards and had that idea: how about making them a little bit more bold? So I selected some papers from the Miles Apart collection, changed the design just a tad – and boy, what a difference!

 

I love the cards’ refreshed look, delicate and light due to just a change of papers 🙂 Apart from that, I used stamped images of babies that I coloured with Distress inks, clusters of white flowers, ribbon and sequins.

One is for a girl:

…and one for a boy:

Do you sometimes go back to your old projects and remake them? 🙂

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Whiff of Joy, Lemonade; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon: Vintage Ribbon; sequins, waxed string: my stash.

 

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

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,

Good morning, Maja Fans, welcome to the blog today 🙂

This month Maja Design joins creative forces with Petaloo, so for my today’s projects I included some of their beautiful flowers. So my first card is baby girl baptism card:

This is a twin card with the boy’s version I created following the beautiful palette of our September Moodboard challenge. It shares the same design and even stamp, of course coloured in girly pink, and features little pink Petaloo flowers:
