Hello Sweet Majafans,

Lenet here  and today I bring you something totally different .

Soon it will be Halloween , we don’t really celebrate this here in the Netherlands but it is done more and more every year.

Spooky parties , tours , decorating you see it more and more. but no trick or treat .

We have something simular in some parts  on november the 11th called Sint Maarten.  as soon as it gets dark children carrying lanterns the made at school ,

go singing from door to door collecting sweets. always very fun to see al those nice lanterns and hear them singing , especially the little children.

Unfortunately no Sint Maarten or Halloween this year due corona / covid.

But that didn’t keep me from making this Halloween card. Although Maja doesn’t have a  specific Halloween collection, the purple from Enjoying the Outdoors and the orange-ish one from Little Street Cafe are perfect for this.

So with any further ado  here is my Halloween card.

The witch is Wanda a stamp from Waltzingmouse the sentiment Happy  Halloween is from the same set. The frame is made with the Ornate Frame sizzix die from Tim Holtz altertions.

The bats are made with dies from some dutch brand I don’t know.

I hope you like my Halloween card.

thank you for visiting , take care and stay safe

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

Autumn is the season mostly associated with the beginning of another school year and with celebrating Teacher’s Day – in Poland it comes on October 14th. And for that occasion I made a set of two cards using the Miles Apart collection:

The cards share the same design, with stamped, embossed and hand-coloured images of books and pencils that I arranged into a pile and topped with chipboard feathers. I placed this combo upon a background composed of triangular pieces of papers. I finished the cards with a stamped quotation and mini flowers. One of the cards features green, brown and orange papers of the collection and I thought it would make a great card for a man:

For the other card I used the colour combo of green and pink patterns, so that it’s more feminine and delicate:

I simply love the versatility of this collection, suitable for such a wide range of themes and projects!

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Lemonade, Agateria; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts, chipboard: Miszmasz Papierowy; bling: Papermania.

That’s all for today, thank you very much for visiting and drop by soon for more inspiration from my talented friends from DT 🙂

Hello Sweet Maja fans,

Lenet here and today I bring you this romantic card with lot’s of layers and fussy cuts tucked between them.

I never heard of fussy cuts  until  Amy called them like that.  So those little things  you cut out with a little scissor are fussy cuts. Love it.

 

For this card I used the Celebration 15×15 paperpad the fussy cuts are cut out of Engagement  from the Vintage romance collection.

Here a close up of the fussy cuts

And the fussy cuts tucked between the layers  to give it some depth.

I love to use layers on a card . I use foamtape between them to stick the layers together.

And a close up of the left uppercorner  with the fuzzy cuts.

Thank you very much for visiting , Hope you like  the card I made for you.

Stay Safe and see you next time.

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

I hope you and your loved ones are safe and your summer is going good despite the restrictions imposed on us all over the world.

Summer usually gives a great opportunity to visit our family and friends living away, but this summer is very much different due to the pandemic. Some countries closed their borders, other don’t allow to travel abroad or introduce lockdown conditions, which all makes it impossible to leave our homes. We are lucky enough to have other means of contact such as phones or the Internet, but there are other ways to show our loved ones we remember 🙂 The Miles Apart collection was intended for such occasions and today I bring you two cards that you could send out when you can’t visit:

For my cards I used the most beautiful rose papers from the collection (in my opinion, of course 🙂 ), in the rose and blue version.

As the post stamp images from the Ephemera sheet I created my own custom pieces by die-cutting the post stamp shapes and filling them with flowery patterned rectangles. Then I added some stamping:

The central elements of the cards are chipboard hearts mounted on kraft cardstock for nice contrast and placced upon beautiful guipure lace. To match these pieces with the rose paper, I added a mini roses below the hearts. For the sentiment I used the ones printed on signature strips – you know I love using those mini patterns! The blue one says “Miss You”:

The pink card follows the suit, I just changed the plaid matting paper for a striped one and used the “Thinking of you” sentiment:

I really like the way they turned out and I hope someone who’d receive such a card would definitely feel our love and bond!

 

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Joy!; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard: the MiniArt; lace: my stash.

 

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