Hi everyone! I am sure you are as excited as me about the new Maja papers. They are just amazing, and I have started using them already.

First up I want to show you a lollipop card I made with two of the sheets from the collection. “You are a star” and “Amazing”.

Some details. Here you get a closer look of the sheet “You are a star”.

For the leaves I have used the Monochrome papers for this collection.

The image is from the sheet “Girls in Jeans”. And underneath the image you can spot “Amazing”.

Here is the back of the lollipop. Where you can write a greeting, and put some money in the small envelope.

Under I just wanted to show you a Magnolia card I made with the gorgeous papers.




And under I have made a lollipop for a Confirmand boy.

The papers are from the Summer Crush collection. And the image is from the Denim & Friends collection.



And you can see that the back is pretty the same as the other lollipop card.

And at last I want to show you the book card I made.

I have used wonderful the Denim & Friends collection.

I cut the tie out for hand, and have done some sewing.

To make it look like a book, I use water colour paper from Canson. And I fold it like an accordion.



Just some details. Here I have matched craft card stock and Maja papers.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja blog today!

Hello everyone,

today i have quiet a different card to share.Its a envelope style card which also serves as a tiny mini album.I made two envelopes and attached it together and added a ribbon closure.I have used one of my favorite  collection “vintage baby”,i guess its been few years since its released but its so popular and i still keep seeing projects with this everywhere,so after hoarding it for so long i decided to use it:)

Maja designs papers are so sturdy and double sided ,so i used the paper itself to make the envelopes instead of cardstock,in this way it looks more elegant.

The inside of the envelopes has two photo mats one small and one big.The inside of the envelope can be filled with gift cards,or journal tag etc.

Maja papers used:Cherish , Our little miracle , Baby shower bs , Ephemera cards


Thank you for stopping by.

Happy crafting

Hi everyone! Here I am with some confirmand cards for boys. I have used the fantastic Denim & Friends Collection!

Firstly I have two cards. I have cut out the shape of the vest, and used a Sizzix die for the bow. The text stamp is from Ett Trykk.

As my pupils are all Confirmands this year, I made them all a card.

I have painted with some white gesso here and there.


I also made some lollipop cards for two of the boys.



Here you also see how I decorate the back of the lollipop cards.


And here is the last one I have for today, the book card. A colleague of mine gave it to her son.

I made the front like the cards.





And here is the inside of the book card.

I have used many of the Denim & Friends papers, and also the monochrome papers. Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

With love,

A couple of book cards for boys

Hello there! And thank you for visiting our blog today. I was asked to make two confirmand cards for boys by an old friend of mine. Her son and his best friend are confirmands this spring. I looked for inspiration, and found it on Hilde‘s instagram. I made myself a template for the vest. And the bow is made with a Sizzix die.


But as you can see, these are not some ordinary cards, they are book cards. Perfect to place small gifts or even money inside. I am in love with the new collection Vintage Romance, and of course I had to use the new papers on these cards aswell. The cards measures 16 x 11 x 2,5 cm.


The hashtag-texts are written on my computer and printed out.


I have glued on the buttons, and painted the papers and the buttons brifely with white gesso. All the papers edges are inked with Distress Ink-Walnut Stain and sewed. Under each pattern paper, I have bazzill-Vanilla. I like the thickness :)


Here are just some closeups of the cards. The bow is made with the cool paper called Honeymoon bs. So the paper is not only for weddings, also mainly boys and mens cards.


I really adore the patterns in the Maja Design papers, and the papers in the collections fits so well together.


The letters are cut out with dies from Sizzix. And I have added Crackle Accent onto them (then they get a more shabby 3D look).


For the inside I have made a pocket. and also put some hashtags and greetings inside of the folded sides. I have used watercolour paper 200g from Canson for the foldings.


A closeup:)


Here is the list of the papers I have used on my projects:
