Hello everyone! I hope you all are fine. It has been a while since I last posted here. As I have started studying again, on my old days 😀 20 years after last time. Anyways, we were invited to a confirmation, so here comes the confirmand bag I made for Patrick. And I am sure you can spot which collection I have used.
Yes! You are right, the wonderful Denim & Friends collection.
I have fastened som e twine around the image. And with this collection you get several of these lovely images, perfect for any boy/youth card. And behind I have fastened a bit of corrugated paper.
And behind all this I have placed a small papebag. Inside the paperbag I have two tags. Where I have stamped texts for the confirmand.
To make a more shabby look, I have painted here and there with white Gesso.

Good morning, dear Maja friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
March is the traditional month for Confirmations in Poland, but due to the pandemic everything has been affected and many events have been cancelled or delayed. And so I’m sharing this Confirmation card today, almost two months later than usual 🙂
I used the Celebration collection to make the card. I think these patterns and colours make it look both girly and elegant:
I layered the papers and placed a chipboard dove combined with a gold metallic matting circle in the centre.
The layers are shaped in curves which add both interest and subtle lightness to the card design:
I added handmade foamiran flowers in matching colours and iridescent sequins as the finishing touch:
The card is dimensional so I also decorated the card box to match.
And here’s what I used:
Maja Design papers:
Mono Celebration-Lavender Rose
Mono Celebration-Lavender Rose-bs
Other: dies: Leanne Creatief, Spellbinders; chipboard: Scrapiniec; foamiran, flower stems, ribbon, sequins: my stash.
I really like the delicate but at the same time festive look of the card! What do you think?
Hi everyone! Here I am back with another confirmand card using the wonderful new papers from Maja Design.
The lovely image is from the diecut sheet.
Some tassels made with Maja papers and a die from Magnolia.
Gorgeous flowers from Petaloo, with some sissal grass behind.
The text die is from Papirdesign.
Under you can see the back of the Lollipop card. Here is a place to write a greeting on. The text is from Stempelglede. I sew with a sewing machine around the papers.
A cute bow made with Maja papers and a Magnolia die.

Hi everyone! I am sure you are as excited as me about the new Maja papers. They are just amazing, and I have started using them already.
First up I want to show you a lollipop card I made with two of the sheets from the collection. “You are a star” and “Amazing”.
Some details. Here you get a closer look of the sheet “You are a star”.
For the leaves I have used the Monochrome papers for this collection.
The image is from the sheet “Girls in Jeans”. And underneath the image you can spot “Amazing”.
Here is the back of the lollipop. Where you can write a greeting, and put some money in the small envelope.
Under I just wanted to show you a Magnolia card I made with the gorgeous papers.
And under I have made a lollipop for a Confirmand boy.
The papers are from the Summer Crush collection. And the image is from the Denim & Friends collection.
And you can see that the back is pretty the same as the other lollipop card.
And at last I want to show you the book card I made.
I have used wonderful the Denim & Friends collection.
I cut the tie out for hand, and have done some sewing.
To make it look like a book, I use water colour paper from Canson. And I fold it like an accordion.
Just some details. Here I have matched craft card stock and Maja papers.
Thank you so much for visiting the Maja blog today!
Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
This week my elder son will ccelebrate his Confirmation. And suddenly I realised I have never made a Confirmation card before! 🙂 So today I bring you two cards for this occasion, one for a girl and the other for a boy.
I kept the design pretty simple, with light background papers, delicate flower combos and filigree chipboard pieces. I decided not to use patterned papers in the background and instead added some texture with die-cut doilies.
The girl’s version features traditional pink tones:
… and the boy’s card goes with blue:
I think they turned out quite nice, delicate and fit for the occasion. And I really like the subtle look with Monochrome papers in the background, with just a hint of a pattern and still very decorative. What do you think?
And here’s what I used:
Maja Design papers:
All wrapped up
Mono White Sand
Shade of Christmas-White
Mono Christmas White
Mono Sky Blue
Shade of Christmas-Vintage Red light-bs
Other: dies: Prima, Cheery Lynn Designs; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard: SnipArt; acrylic stones: Prima.
That is all for today, thank you for visiting and come back tomorrow for more inspiration from my DT friends 🙂
