Confirmation Card Revisited

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

A couple of years ago on one of the craft forums I found a challenge called “Project Revisited”. The challenge meant that you recreate a past project of yours, whether introducing some changes or not. I thought this was great for beginners to check on their progress, but also for any crafter, just for fun. And so with a recent Confirmation card order I thought of this challenge and recreated a card I made a couple of years ago.

I used the Miles Apart collection for the card and kept the design mostly unchanged, but while I used just Monochrome papers then, I decided to go for a patterned paper this time, choosing my favourite rose bouquets pattern and I just LOVE how fresh and delicate it looks!

In the previous card the die-cut doilies were supposed to add some texture and interest to the background, and here I found they provide the structure for the design and make the background less busy. I think it’s awesome how the same element can have opposite functions when used in different contexts!

 

As the card was supposed to go into an envelope I went easier on the flower cluster than in the past card, but it still has a nice dimension:

And here’s what I used for this version of the card:

And how about you? Do you “visit” your past projects sometimes, and if yes, do you change much?

See you soon!

Best Balloon Wishes

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

The weather is slowly changing into dull, rainy and cool, but I’m not ready yet to leave the summer behind 😉 And so today I bring you a cheerful summer wishes card made using the very summery Tropical Garden collection:

I layered background papers, applied a stencil pattern on top and added a shaker box balloon filled with sequins, hand-cut tags and a flowers cluster including a bouquet cut out from one of the sheets:

I finished the card off with a chipboard sentiment embossed with white ep.

 

I really like the dimension the card has, though it will require making a box too 😉

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: 49&Market, my stash; chipboard, stencil, embossing powder: Agateria; vintage ribbon, sequins: my stash.

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

 

 

 

Have a Wonderfull day.

Hello sweet Maja Fans,

Lenet here and today I bring you this card.

I made this card using the 15×15 paper pad of the gorgeous new collection Tropical Garden.

I just love this new collection it’s  fresh and different but still a typical Maja Design.

As you see I did some fuzzy cutting  with the Exotic Plants sheet from the 12×12 papers of this collection.

The Birds and the sentiment are from the diecut sheet

I used some foamtape to stich it all together in place to create some depth

 

The chipboard piece I used is one piece of the Lattice Pieces from Scrapaholics , I decided nto leave the color like it is  to match the leaves of the design on the background paper.

I hope you like the card I made for you.

Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful day,  please come back for some more inspiration from the other Maja Girls.

You Rock

Hello Sweet Maja fans,

I love this paperpad, It’s sweet , cool and tough ad the same time. You can make cards, layout’s mini”s  in a girly, sweet style but also in a cool, though style for not so girly girls.

As you probably can see I made these cards using the same sketch . the have just are a  little  differend.

The You Rock sentiment  is a piece from the paperstrip at the bottom of the Girls in Jeans 12×12 patterned paper sheet.

I used some seembinding for the bows, the floweers are from Prima marketing Florella Hobby Fun.. The glittered hearts are from Mellissa Frances.

The rozettes are made using the Tim Holtz Paper Rosette die.

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

February is all about love, so today I bring you a Valentine card I made using the Little Street Cafe collection:

I used the gate fold card base and decorated the front panels with layered papers and hand-coloured stamped images of a boy and girl kissing. As the background panel is busy with flowers, I placed the figures upon a glitter heart to make them more visible:

When you untie the ribbon the card opens…

…to reveal the inside panel with a stamped and embossed motives: a red sentiment heart against golden hearts background. I used the masking stamping technique to achieve this effecct. I also decorated the inside flaps with chipboard flourish corners to stabilise the card and help it keep its shape:

There’s also some space left to write your name in 😉

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other:

stamps and chipboard: Agateria; die: CreaLies; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; acrylic glitter stones: Prima; ribbon: Rayher.

I do like how the card turned out, vibrant and cheerful – what do you think?

See you soon!
