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

Just like last time, today I bring you a Baptism inspiration, but this time I created a delicate baby girl exploding box:

For the box I combined the Celebration and Miles Apart collections, choosing some deliate floral patterns and neutral backgrounds:

I decorated the lid with a stamped and embossed sentiment and a flower cluster:

When you remove the lid, the box opens to reveal the inside:

I decorated the inned walls with die-cut motives, flower compositions and some stamped wishes. To add some glam, I used acrylic gems and iridescent sequins:

In the centre I put a box including a jewellery gift, but replaced the original box lid with a handmade one decorated with a die-cut doily and a signature strip pieces ūüôā The box is tied with ribbon that is attached to the exploding box bottom – this way you can remove the gift box without having to rip it off ūüėČ

I think exploding boxes are best when you need to include a small gift or money – they work as both a card and gift box ūüôā

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Agateria, Lemonade; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: Craft&You Design, Cheery Lynn Dies; gems: Marianne Design; ribbon: Rayher; sequins, string: my stash.

That’s all for today, see you next time!

 

 

Enjoy Life.

Hello Sweet Maja Fans.

Lenet here  and today I bring you this layout, made with the celebration collection.

With everything going on I think it’s very important to look for the little postiteve things and celebrate them.

that’s why I chose to use¬† the ” The more you praise and Celebrate your life , the more there is in life to celebrate ”

quote on the strip from the Champagne sheet of the celebration collection.

The picture of the little girl inspired me to make this layout. She is smelling the delicate flowers and clearly enjoys them.

one of the things that I think should be celebrated in life, the beauty of mother nature.

 

 

 

Besides the wonderful Celebration collection I used chippies from  Scrapaholics, the Lattice pieces, the Ivy Vine Spray set,  and the Enjoy Life sentiment from  The Life Moments set.I colored them with  Embossing poweder from WOW and distress embossingpowder from ranger/ TimHoltz.

The flowers are from 49 And Market. The flatback button with the butterfly I made myself with the Button Press from WeR.

Thank you for visiting , hope you like my layout.

Stay Safe and hope to see you back.

Goodmorning Maja Design fans,

If you visit the blog regularly you know I love making layouts! I have wanted to scrap this picture for a while now but that mini princess is making it a little difficult to scrap sometimes and I have to find time {while she is sleeping} to create because I really need it. We went to a photographer to make this picture because I wanted one with the four of us in it to put on a canvas to hang on my wall and so we did and I am very happy with it….look at that masculine son of us isn’t he handsome? I really love my little family <3

For this layout I used the pretty ‘Celebration’ collection and two sheets of the monochromes one of the Shades of Sofiero called white/sand and one of the Shades of Celebration called charcoal. On the background behind the pictures I used the monochromes I also used these for the flowers I made using the amazing dies by Cheery Lynn Designs which are still my favs. After having some computer problems {it crashed} oh boy how I dislike it when that happens I am back again….but due to these problems I missed two posts sorry for that….

The monochromes are amazing to make flowers with as I did in this layout…if I have time I will do a little tutorial on how to make the flowers in my layout they are super easy and quick to make. The chipboards are by The Dusty Attic and I treated them with just plain paint and some of them like the barb wire I treated with embossing powder. As you can also see in my layout I used some cheese cloth behind my picture and flowers.

To finish of my layout I added some stamps, art stones, wishing bubbles, and metal pieces and of course my favorite spray “Sidewalk Chalk” on my tittle I used some of the amazing rust paste by Finnabair. With this layout I entered in a moodboard challenge because the colors spoke to me and I knew exactly which papers I could use.

Maja Design papers used: Anniversary bs, You’re Invited, Ephemera bs, Mono Celebration-Charcoal bs, Mono White Sand

   

I hope you had fun reading my post and we do love to see your work created with the lovely Maja Design papers on the¬† Facebook site….Have a gorgeous day and I hope to see you soon….

Love

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.

          

First Communion Cards

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

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!
