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

due to the world pandemic many celebrations have been cancelled or postponed. Traditionally, the First Communions month in Poland is May, but since the restrictions have gradually been lifted onyl recently, the season is only beginng now. And this year we have two kids from our family who will receive their Fisrt Communion and so I made cards form them.

I made the card for my husband’s goddaughter using the Little Street Cafe collection, from which I selected mauve purple papers for a bit of colour. I added a stamped girl image and coloured her so that she has the same dark hair as Amelia. I used a beautiful filigree chipboard host matted with gold metallic circle and a flower cluster beneath:

I completed the design with die-cut grapes and vine leaves and added some subtle shine with opalescent sequins:

I used the same card design for my husband’s nephew First Communion card:

He’s blonde, so I coloured the stamped boy image blonde too. I used the sky blue and neutral papers from the Celebration collection:

I like the way the cards turned out: simple but elegant, dimensional but still fitting into an envelope.

Here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Whiff of Joy; chipoard: Scrapiniec; dies: Spellbinders, CreaLies; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts.

 

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and don’t forget to drop by soon for more inspiration!

 

 

Thank You Teacher Cards

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

Although the pandemic caused closure of schools worldwide, it doesn’t mean studying stopped as well (but perhaps pupils aren’t so happy about it 😉 ). And of course it doesn’t mean teachers stopped working. Running online classes is no less demanding and many claim they spend even more time getting the lessons ready than at school. Most students in Poland won’t be returning to schools before the summer break, but they still want to express their gratitude towards their techaers who help them deal with this difficult situation we’re all in. And so I made two cards thay say “Thank you!”:

They are larger than my usual cards, measuring 15×20 cm (so twice the regular size), I guess these pupils are particularly grateful! 🙂 One is for the headmaster:

…and the other for a Polish language teacher:

The  card for the headmaster features the Little Street Cafe collection and a hand-coloured stamped images of an owl and some books that I also heat-embossed with gold ep. I added a flower cluster and die cut sentiment:

For the Polish language teacher card I used the Celebration collection. The focal point is a book I made from scraps of paper and decorated with flowers made from foamiran and an embossed chipboard sentiment. I also added a beautiful letter-patterned ribbon to look like a bookmark going across the card:

I hope the teachers would like the cards as much as I liked working on them!

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Lemonade, Agateria; dies: Leane Creatief, Nellie Snellen, Marianne Design; flowers: Prima, handmade; chipboard: Wycinanka.pl; embossing powder: Blue Fern Studios; enamel dots: DP Craft; border punch: EK Success; ribbon: Eight.pl.

That’s all for today, stay healthy at home, and see you soon!

Stay Healthy

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

We’ve been locked in our homes for more than a month now due to the deadly virus ravaging the world. Restrictions that it had imposed on us have been tedious and tiresome but I think we can still call ourselves lucky if our only worry is the inability to go shopping whenever we want. There are thousands more miserable, suffering and fighting for their lives, needing help and support. For all those who are sick I dedicate these get well soon cards:

For the “boy” card I used my favourite Denim&Friends collection, adding a hand-coloured stamped image and die-cut patches and a pill blister.

I used similar elements for the “girl” card, but arranged the design horizontally rather than vertically and used the Little Street Cafe collection 🙂

As you can see, I can make flowerless cards too! 😀

Having made the support-get-well-soon cards, I naturally thought of those who take care of so many sick people these days: doctors, nurses, paramedics – who often risk their own lives to save others. They always deserve respect and gratitude, but especially with this pandemic situation they are the world’s bravest heroes. And so I made a couple of thank you cards too:

I followed the collection and images pattern, but added some flowers this time 🙂

Here are the cards with some medical utensils instead of the images:

While making these cards I was thinking that even though we’re stuck at home we’re so lucky to be alive and healthy, I was thinking of thousands of people fighting for their lives and so many of them losing the battle, and of those who risk their lives to save others.  I do pray this pandemic ends soon and that everybody is safe – and free to go outside without fear – again!

Here’s my list of supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Marianne Design, Nellie’s Choice; stamps: Whiff of Joy, Lemonade; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; pearls: Basic Grey.

 

While we can’t do much to heal the sick ones, we can still do a lot to make everyone safer. So please stay at home, save lives 🙂
