Hello again dear Maja fans.

We still have a amazing summer over here in the Netherlands with lots of sun and warm temperatures. They are even talking about a heatwave next week.

So in order to cool down a little , I made this Christmas card , you never start too early making them right? Maybe this year I will be done in time instead of making them at the last minute.

This one I made with some leftovers from projects I made earlier with the Vintage Frost Collection.

To create snow the snow on the edges I used Finnabair art extravagance paper texture paste.

To create dimension on the card I used foamtape to stick the pieces together.

Thank you very much for your visit, I hope I was able to give you some inspiration with this card.

Hello sweet Maja friends, I hope you have just a great summer as I have.

We have lots of sun for a while now with very nice warm temperatures. Only thing not so nice is that is that my craft room is at the attic and it’s super hot up there now.

But I did manage to make you this card. I used the summer crush collection for it.

I cut three pieces of paper  one a little smaller than the other one , distressed the edges and stuck them together with foamtape..

Took two straws and tied them together with a piece of lace and seambinding some flowers ,  two art boubles , a bit of sisal , a sentiment, and glued it all on the card.

Than I added a little paper texture paste  on the leaves , some withe splashes with white ink and voila, my card is done.

Hope you enjoy it and gives you some inspiration to create your own card.

Thank you very much for your visit. Make shure you come back tomorrow to see some more lovely work from one of the other MajaGirls.

Friends.

Hello sweet Maja fans.

Lenet here and I bring you this card.

 

Today is the official first day of the summer , and so I decided to use the summertime collection to create this card with.

I love making cards with an extra twist ,so made this what shall I call it dangle card?

When you open the card you find a dangle of roses , I cut out of a sheet of Smell the roses.

 

 

I used the two bikes because well ,we dutch are not only known for the mills , tulips and wooden shoes ,  but we are also known for our many bikes.

I love to ride my bike and use it daily for fun but also for running errands .

And saying that I’m going to hop on my bike to bring this card to the post office than  it can be sent to my friend  so she”ll how much you appreciate her.

thank you very much for visiting our blog and hope you get some inspiration by this card.

 

 

 

 

Father’s Day Cards

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

Father’s Day has been celebrated in various parts of the world, and in Poland it comes on June 23rd. Therefore for my today’s post I created two cards for the occasion. These are really super quick and easy to make even for beginners 🙂

I don’t mind at all using flowers in masculine projects, but this time I decided not to include a single one. I based both on the Denim & Friends collection.

For the first card you don’t even need any die-cutting machine, I cut all the paper elements by hand.

I layered papers, added some tags and a strip of paper across the card and placed a cut-out image on top. I decorated the card with metal embellishments, studs and a chipboard sentiment, but you could easily replace those with paper elements and handwriting.

If you have a die-cutting machine, the second card would be a piece of cake to make too 🙂

I layered selected papers in the background and mounted a cut-out image, then added some die-cut stars and a trophy to match the stamped sentiment which says: “Dad, you’re the best”. I finished the card off with drops of liquid pearls and glitter. After all, men love to shine 🙂

 

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Marianne Desig, Crea-Lies; stamp: Lemonade; metal elements: ScrapHobby; string, ribbon: my stash.

 

Thank you for visiting today and see you soon!

Hello our blog friends. Today I would like to show you my mini tutorial for a childish card. I bought one of the most popular metal dies from Sizzix (than’s Marta for you help ! ) and finally after a few weeks I managed to use it !

  1. I was looking for a pastel and sweet paper collection – Summer Crush was just perfect.
  2. I used some of my metal dies and cut the elements to use with my composition.
  3. Added some laces, flowers and created the base.
  4. Painted edges of the elements with Distress Vintage Photo ink.
  5. Put all elements together.
  6. Added flowers, chipboards, splashed my card with the white ink.

Hope you will like my inspiration. Hugs, Paulina
