Hello  sweet maja fans,

Lenet herre and today I bring you this congratulate card for some one who just has a new home.

Both our daughter and son are trying to find a home for themself, but because there is a big shortage for homes I think it can take a while before the finally find one.

Of course I hope they find one soon and I can sent this card to either one of them on thier new home adress.

 

I made this card using the Bohemian Harmony Collection. The chippies I used are from scrapaholics, I colored them with acrylic paints.

The stamps are som golden oldies from Waltzing mouse.

I hope you like my card and hope to see you again soon.

 

 

 

First Communion Cards

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

May is traditionally the month of First Communions in Poland, and as it’s a very important celebration for many kids, cards for the occasion are hugely popular. And so today I bring you two cards I made, for a boy and a girl.

While I used the beautiful Miles Apart collection for my cards, I focused on papers you would normally not see, or just not use at all 😉 because I used only one patterned paper, and the main background is with a Monochrome set paper, while for the decorative border on both cards I used the back sides of signature strips that you normally cut off and throw away 🙂 I love that Maja Design uses even those tiny scraps to give you beautiful patterns!

As you can see, I used the same design for both cards, and they differ only by border patterns and main images of boy and girl.

Apart from the background, I used the Monochrome papers for the leaves in the flower clusters too:

And so, although Monochrome sets that go with many of the Maja collections are meant to complement the patterned papers, they also make beautiful background by themselves, as each Monochrome set is designed with their own subtle patterns.

Here’s what I used for the cards:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: I Love Craft, Spellbinders; punch: DpCraft; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; stamps: Agateria.

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

 

Positive Messages For Her

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

International Women’s Day that is coming in March is perhaps not much celebrated due to its historical context, but I got inspired by this date to create cards for women with positive messages, expressing support and encouraging, that can be given to any important woman in our lives 🙂

I made all the cards using the Bohemian Harmony collection that gives such a nice boho vibe to your projects! All cards feature images from the Snapshots paper as focal elements. Forn the first card I chose the beautiful image of a girl bathing in the sea in the sunset, and added a die cut sentiment and tags.

In the second card I used squares punched out of various papers to make a patchwork-like background for the image and stamped sentiments (which say: “Never give up” and “You can do it, who if not you”):

And finally the third card: I placed the image in a chipoard embossed frame and added some mini flowers that refer to the flowery background paper, and hand-cut tags. The stamped sentiment says “You are awesome”:

All the cards are perfect for any occasion, or even on no occasion! 🙂 It’s always nice to send someone a supportive message.

Here’s what I used for the cards:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Crealies, Spellbinders, Kesi’art; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard, stamps: Agateria, sequins, string: my stash.

That’s all for today, see you soon!

 

 

 

Valentine’s Day Cards

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

February is in full bloom and St. Valentine’s Day approaching quickly 🙂 And since cards play a major role in this holiday, I  bring you two samples for inspration:

 

I made both cards using the Miles Apart collection and focused on blending my embellishments into the background papers. And so, in the first card I cut the paper so that the top of the printed house is visible, and arranged die cut motives of clouds and a balloon so that they look as if floating above the house. Then I filled the remaining space with die cut letters that I arranged like a crossword puzzle, and mini heart sequins:

In the other card I incorporated the flower cluster into the bouquet printed in the background paper. The flowers, both printed and dimensional, are a subtle companion to the glitter foam heart with toothpick handles 🙂 I finished the card off with a stamped sentiment and opalescent sequins:

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: My Favourite Things, Marianne Design, Little B; stamp: Agateria; punches: DpCraft; sequins: my stash.

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting ans see you soon!

Thanks A Bunch

Hello Sweet Maja fans,

Lenet here and this time I bring you this Thank You  card .

This card is made with Maja Designs latest collection Bohemian Harmony. I used the 6×6 inch collection .

I just looove it, the bleu and warm brown colors are such a great combination andthe patterns of course as well.

As an early birthday present my hubby got me a Spellbinders glimmer hotfoil system.

I never really was into this foil and glimmer stuff but I love this one! It’s so much fun so now I’m collecting dies and foil for it.

I used it on this card. The sentiment and the frame are made with it.

The flowers are from 49and market and the ribbon is from my own stash.

I hope you like my card.

Thank you for visiting and  stay safe .
