Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
A couple of years ago on one of the craft forums I found a challenge called “Project Revisited”. The challenge meant that you recreate a past project of yours, whether introducing some changes or not. I thought this was great for beginners to check on their progress, but also for any crafter, just for fun. And so with a recent Confirmation card order I thought of this challenge and recreated a card I made a couple of years ago.
I used the Miles Apart collection for the card and kept the design mostly unchanged, but while I used just Monochrome papers then, I decided to go for a patterned paper this time, choosing my favourite rose bouquets pattern and I just LOVE how fresh and delicate it looks!
In the previous card the die-cut doilies were supposed to add some texture and interest to the background, and here I found they provide the structure for the design and make the background less busy. I think it’s awesome how the same element can have opposite functions when used in different contexts!
As the card was supposed to go into an envelope I went easier on the flower cluster than in the past card, but it still has a nice dimension:
And here’s what I used for this version of the card:
And how about you? Do you “visit” your past projects sometimes, and if yes, do you change much?
See you soon!
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.
