Hello sweet Maja fans.

A few of the things I love is recycling pretty packaging.

Every time I get a gift or buy something I take a close look at the package and see if I can make something nice out of it.

Good thing I have enough space to store all the interesting items , the only thing I need now is time , lots of time , but think that is a common problem we crafters have.

Anyway  I got some scented sticks ( love those too)  and the came in this tube .

We had a anniversary and double birthday party coming from friends , the asked money so they could buy something nice that was very expensive.

I think just giving money is boring , so wanted to make a nice package to put it into and I had this tube lying around so cut half of it and made this out of it.

on the top lid I glued a lot of flowers .

Under the lid I glued a satin ribbon that you can pull to take the lid of and it’s also a handle to hold the gift.

and a little birthday card to go with it and voila, gift tube is done.

For this project I used the Celebration Collection , what better papers are there to use for this gift tube than  the celebration Collection right?

Flowers are from Wild orchidcrafts , pearls and ribbon from my private stash.

Thank you for visiting.

I hope you like my project for this week and hope I gave you some inspiration for recycling those tubes.

I have more tubes lying around so will be back with another one soon.

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to our blog!

Today I am going to celebrate with you 🙂 And therefore I have some birthday cards:

And what better collection to use for such festive cards than our own Celebration? 🙂 I mixed papers from the regular and small pads.

 

The first card features a sweet cupcake:

I layered purple and beige papers and used the rich dark brown floral paper for the background, matting the die-cut cupcake with a contrasting sand Monochrome sheet. I added matching polka dot ribbon and a metal charm in the shape of a teapot. Here’s the birthday tea party 🙂

The stamped sentiment says in Polish: A lot of happiness and sweetness. How fitting!

 

For the second card I used a dreamcatcher motif:

For this card I selected the blue papers of the collection and composed the dreamcatcher combining a doily and feather dies:

I also added vintage ribbon and a button and finished off the design with gem stones, pearls and glitter:

 

I made the third card to…well, use up the leftovers 😉

I used the tiniest bits to punch the doily border and die-cut the banners. Then I used larger pieces to make the background:

The patterned papers make the beauty of the card, so other decorative elements include only flowers, pearl border and some delicate stamping:

 

Here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Marianne Design, X-cut; punch: Martha Stewart; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; stamps: Lemonade, the ScrapBerry’s; bling, pearls: Creative Expressions; glitter: Ranger, Nuvo.

 

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

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

I have recently had the pleasure of making a sweet birthday card for a sweet girl.

 

I used mostly Denim & Friends papers as they matched the colours from the photo most perfectly. I added just a touch of the Vintage Summer pink in the background:

I have die-cut the embellishments from the papers, such as the cute heart banners and the number flag:

I stamped the cute beart with a heart, coloured it and paper-pieced the heart using a scrap of the Vintage Romance heart-patterned paper. I then added a small letter “O” for the girl’s name:

I also added plaid ribbon and some mini flowers and cute white pom-poms as the finishing touch.

And I think the card symbolises the 9-year-old girls quite accurately: still cute, but not too much 😉 What do you think?

Here are my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Marianne Design, Craft Passion; stamp: ScrapBerry’s; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon: Rayher, pom-poms: my stash.

 

Before I bid you goodbye, I’d like to wish you a joyous Easter filled with the warmth of love and kindness 🙂

See you soon!

Hi everyone! I am back with a tag this time. And of course with the gorgeous  new papers, and this time in more pinkish tones.

I have added white gesso and Frantage on the papers. The postmark stamps are from Stempelglede. The image is from Magnolia. The image is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers on the Langton paper.

I have cut out the text and the glasses with Maja papers.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I have added some frantage which I have melted, on the roses.

The sentiment on the tag is from Stempelglede.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

Here are the papers used:

With love,

29, you said?? ;)

Hi everyone! Today I am back with an easel card. I have used one of my favorite collections for my card, the Denim & Friends collection. The card was made for a colour challenge at the Norwegian card magazine Ett Trykk, with the colours mint and turquoise. I tried to find some suitable Maja papers to fit the challenge.

The cute image is from Magnolia and the Denim Collection, and I have coloured it with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. The dies used are also from Magnolia.

The texts are from Ett Trykk.

Under you can view the card from the side. I made it for my friend’s 40th anniversary.

I have made the flowers myself. I have placed them both on the upper part of the card, and on the lower part. So when it is open, it looks like the flowers are together in a way.

Want to see how they are made? Here I have some photos from the making.

I lay the flowers down on a newspaper, and spray them with water (the flower dies are from Magnolia).

Then I curl them up, and let them to dry.

When they are dry, I curl them up again, and place them together with some Wild Orchid Crafts stamens in the middle. Here comes a list of papers used:

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Blog!
