Good morning Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

By common opinion among cardmakers, masculine cards are rather difficult to make. Would you agree? Despite being the only woman in our home, I do struggle when I have to make a card for a man. So once I got into “that” mood, I decided to take advantage of that unexpected mojo and make three birthday cards for three age groups: a baby boy, a teenager and a grown-up man:

For the boy card I used the papers from the Miles Apart collection as the pastel background to a hand-coloured stamped image. I also added a star cut out from one of the mini pad sheets, a plaid ribbon bow, some buttons and a stamed and embossed sentiment circle:

In the card for a teenager I featured the Denim&Friends papers, with a skater image decorated with a metal star charm and a mini flag cut out from a signature strip. I die-cut the sentiment from metallic silver sheet and matted it with a dark navy blue piece to make the whole sentiment pop out:

The last card features the Miles Apart papers again, with a chipboard steampunk heart embossed with various eps for a more rusty look, a metal flower, screw brads and plaid ribbon. I die-cut the sentiment from glitter foam and added some paper flowers too. Can you spot the mini balloons I cut out from one of the sheets? 🙂

 

Here’s the supply list for my cards:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers, chipboard heart: Prima; dies: Rosy Owl, CreaLies; metal ger: Mitform; metal flower: Craftmania; brads, ribbon: Rayher; acrylic gems: Scrapberry’s.

 

Do you struggle with masculine cards or do you make them with ease? 🙂

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.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today

With love,

 

Dream Big

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

I hope you’re having great summer so far, even though travelling has been limited and we all still need to follow the lockdown rules. But the right attitude is the key to keep us all going strong through difficult times. So hang in there, and come have a look at the project I have to share.

Today I bring you a delicate baby girl page with a photo of my little niece. She’s so tiny in the picture, so I thought I’d use a limited amount of embellishments, making the page almost clean&simple in order not to overwhelm the photo and accent that delicacy.

I used the Denim & Friends with just a touch of the Denim & Girls collection for my layout. I kept the colour palette of the photo throughout the page. I first added some doily motives with a stencil and modeling paste and then placed the photo in the centre and surrounded it with flowers, hand cut tags and cardstock butterflies. The title is also a cardstock sticker. I completed my design with sequins scattered here and there for lightness and subtle shine:

I just love the versatility of Maja Design papers that allows you to make a sweet baby layout using a msculine collection! What do you think of how the page turned out?

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stencil: Agateria; flowers, stickers: Prima Marketing; sequins: my stash.

That’s all for today, drop by soon for more inspiration! See you later!

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

 

 

 

 

Congrats

Hello Lenet here , today I bring you this masculine card made with papers from the Denim and friends collection, and some car pictures from the vintage romance honeymoon sheet.

This card can be used for a birth day but also as a congratulations card for someone who just got his drivers license.

In fact I made this one with the intention to play along with challenge  that wanted a congratulations with your drivers license card, but you had to use the given sketch too.

I was so busy making this card I totally forgot about the sketch. Oh wel I just make another one .
