Hello, our blog fans. Today I created the card in the box. It was an individual order and the most important thing was to use the Peacock motif.  I matched digital graphic and then found the paper. I mixed different collection – the most important was to find the best shades of blue paper.

To create the background I used a paper sheet from Monochromes Collection.  Modeling paste was applied by the mask and then I just compose the rest.

    I’m really happy about the final result. Hope you will like it to. Hugs, Paulina

 

 

 

 

First Communion Exploding Boxes

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

May is traditionally a month of the First Communions in Poland. Every May Sunday in various churches a group of kids receive the Sacrament and then celebrate with their faimilies with festive dinner and presents. Money and jewellery are quite popular First Communion gifts and I designed exploding boxes to give them a nice packaging 🙂

Here’s the girl’s version:

I decorated the box with Celebration papers:

The lid is decorated with a flower bouquet and a stamped sentiment embossed with golden ep:

When the lid is removed, the walls fall open and reveal the inside. There’s a stamped, embossed and hand-coloured image of a First Communion girl:

…a small gift pocket:

I also added a panel with a stamped poem, whilst in the centre I placed the chalice decorated with flowers:

The girl’s version is traditionally in the pink palette – I also made a boy’s version in blues:

The design is basically the same, of course the stamp is different 🙂

I really like how the Celebration collection provided delicate flower patterns for the girl’s box, but also elegant flowerless motives for the boy version 🙂

And how do you like the boxes?

Here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Spellbinders, custom vine die; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; stamps: Lemonade; washi tape: Dekoracyjna Taśma; bling: Marianne Design.

I hope you enjoyed your visit to our blog, don’t forget to drop by tomorrow for more inspiration!

Have a nice day!

Egg Easter Cards

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

Last Sunday we celebrated the most important Christian holiday of the year, the Resurrection of Christ. And of course I made some cards for the occasion 🙂 So today I bring you two cards shaped like Easter eggs, my favourite card form for this holiday:

For my cards I used the Celebration collection – nomen omen 🙂 I really like the blue-lilac combo, it looks so spring-fresh to me and I thought it would look good on spring-holiday cards.

Both cards have the same design – I layered selected papers to make the background for the focal image of the Lamb:

I added some flowers matching the colour palette and to emphasize the joyful, festive character of the cards I added some gold details: die-cut sentiment and catkin twogs and a glitter trim around the edges:

I really like how they turned out, dimensional yet still flat enough to go into an envelope 🙂

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamp: Lemonade; dies: Rosy Owl, X-cut, Craft&You; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; sequins, string: my stash.

 

I hope you had a wonderful Easter time celebration, filled with love and peace!

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

Hello out blog fans. Today I’m really late with the post. I totally forgot to show you my last card created for the mood board challenge. Have you seen it? In this inspiration, I would like to show you how universal are the Maja’s papers. I have used the Christmas Collection of paper to create completely no Christmas card. It’s a huge value of the papers!

I’m wondering if you are using the Christmas Collection due the yeat as well? If not – it’s good advice to try. Hope you will like my card. Hugs, Paulina

Hello, our blog fans. Today I decided to use the Celebration Collection to create mini-notebooks. I will use them to write down everyday routines and shopping list. I love to create projects with layers and small details.  

The background was made with the structure paste and white gesso. Chipboards covered with embossing. In the end, I splashed everything with white and black acrylic paint. 

Hope you will like my project. Hugs, Paulina
