Hi there lovely people! Here I am again with a new card for you. I long for the Spring, and have therefor used papers from the Vintage Spring Basics. Hope you like it!


I will list you the specific papers at the end of the post.


I have coloured the Magnolia image Italy Tilda from the Stamp & Cutz CM-16. She is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. I have tried to use the same colours that you find in the papers. The colour of the dress is Bundled Sage.


The cute little butterflies are cut out from a Vintage Spring Basic pattern paper. I have just inked them on the edges with Distress Ink pad, Walnut Stain; as all the paper edges. The heart tags are made with a Doohickey from Magnolia, others are made mostly with dies from the DooHickey box vol 9, Fairytale.


Some new texts on my tags this time, they are from the Norwegian magazine Ett Trykk, Norsk Stempelblad. I have been chosed to be one of their guest designers for 2017. There will be six magazine this year, and in each you will among many others find some of my cards. And ofcourse I use my Maja papers 😉

The tags are made with Bazzill Kraft and I have added some Maja papers to finish the cute look :) The shape of my card is made with a GoKreate die. The lovely laces are from the shop LLC, the same as my doilies. And as you see I have coloured with white Gesso here and there.


Here is a list of the wonderful papers used:

Hi there! I will show you a giftbox I made with wonderful papers from Maja Design. It is not Christmassy at all, but I will give you the tutorial on how I made the simple box; and who knows, maybe you want to try to make a box like this in a Christmassy style?! :)


Cut out two papers measuring 30 x 7 cm. Then fold both at 6 cm.


Then fold at 10,5 and 21.


Make cuts like this.


Then start with the lid on the box. Cut out two papers measuring 4 x 30 cm. Also here fold at 1 cm first.


Then fold the other way at each 10,6. This is because the lid has to be a bit larger than the bottom part of the box.


Make the cuts.


Put the parts together like this.


And this.


Cut out parts to fasten inside the bottom of the box and the lid. (10,4 x 10,4 and 10,5 x 10,5).


Like this.


Then use the background die to cut out the bottom part and one on the lid. I use a harder cardboard for this.


I also have painted the edges with white Gesso.

After putting the parts together and decorate them with beautiful Maja Papers, I have decorated the box on the top with different elements made with DooHickey dies from Magnolia (Vintage Box vol 3). I will show you some details:


I just felt I had to decorate the whole box with butterflies:)


The lovely photos and letters are also Maja Design papers.


Here with the lid taken of.

Hello beautiful Maja fans! I am back with a birthday card to a dear friend of mine. For this card I have used the lovely Vintage Romance collection.


I just love the flowery papers, and I can’t have enough of them:) The tags, balloons, tassels, flowers and pennants are all made with DooHickey dies from Magnolia (box vol 5).


The cute butterflies are cut out from a sheet from the Vintage Spring Basics collection. I cut them out, ink the sides with Distress Ink pad, Walnut Stain, and add some Stickles Star Dust onto the edges of the wings.


Under the homemade flowers I have put some sissal grass. And behind the image I have put some cheese cloth, a corrugated paper (painted with gesso) and a frame made with a Oval Spellbinder die.


I just love the tassels, so had to add some on this card aswell 😉


I have added some Stickles Star Dust to the balloons aswell. And on the letters I have added some Crackle paint. On the flowers and here and there on the flowers I have painted with white Gesso. The shape of the card is made with a GoKreate die. And I have sewed the edges with my sewing machine. The leaves are from Magnolia. Laces and doilies from LLC.


Here you can see the card from the side. I always sew the pattern papers on to bazzill Vanilla. The card is Bazzill Craft. The postmarks are made with stamps from Stempelglede. I have coloured the image with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers.


Here is the list of the papser used:
