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

A couple of years ago I made two Baptism cards using papers with very delicate patterns. Going through my pics the other day I found those cards and had that idea: how about making them a little bit more bold? So I selected some papers from the Miles Apart collection, changed the design just a tad – and boy, what a difference!

 

I love the cards’ refreshed look, delicate and light due to just a change of papers 🙂 Apart from that, I used stamped images of babies that I coloured with Distress inks, clusters of white flowers, ribbon and sequins.

One is for a girl:

…and one for a boy:

Do you sometimes go back to your old projects and remake them? 🙂

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Whiff of Joy, Lemonade; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon: Vintage Ribbon; sequins, waxed string: my stash.

 

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

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

Can you believe how fast time flies? We only began the school year yesterday and we’re saying goodbye to the classmates and teachers tomorrow! This was such a strange year both for students and teachers and parents! and I think all of them are happy to take two months of rest. But I also think it’s especially important to express thanks to those who took so much time and effort to keep teaching the kids at their homes and continue the educational progress despite the pandemic. And so it was with great pleasure that I made these cards:

I used the beautiful Tropical Garden collection to make the summer theme even more dominant 🙂 I added some typical “school” motives such as the stamped book piles and the metal owl charms and combined them with flower bouquets and chipboard keys (as we have a saying in Polish: “Study hard, child, because knowledge is the key to power”). There’s also some handwriting stencil pattern in the background.

I do hope that students, teachers and parents too will have the well-deserved rest during the summer!

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamp, stencil, chipboard: Agateria; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; die: Nellie’s Choice, charms: my stash.

That’s all for today, see you soon!

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.

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

As you might probably remember from my previous post, May is traditionally the month of First Communions in Poland. Therefore last time I shared an exploding box and today I bring you two cards:

I used the Miles Apart collection and employed one of my favourite card techniques – the patchwork. I allows you to use up even the smallest pieces of papers and is therefore perfect for many scrappers who – like me – are organically unable to throw such pieces away 😉 And so I used a square punch and made two backgrounds in pinks…

 

…and blues:

The cards are actually very, very simple: just a chipboard Host chalice, die-cut leaves, three lilies and acrylic gems. But the layered background with various patterns make them look rich and colourful.

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard: Scrapiniec; dies: Cheery Lynn Designs, my stash; gems: Marianne Design, my stash.

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.

Thank you for visiting, I hope you like my cards., make shure to come back to see what the other Maja Girls made for you..
