Good morning Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today ๐Ÿ™‚

In less than a fortnight Polish schoolchildren will be free from school until September ๐Ÿ™‚ So it’s an intensive time of last chances to get better grades and thank your teachers. And so for today I have two simple thank you teacher cards to share:

Just as with the Denim&Friends collection, I wanted to check whether the feminine version, Denim&Girls, would make masculine projects too ๐Ÿ˜‰ And so I used these papers to make a feminine and a masculine card. I used the same design for both cards, so only the paper patterns make a difference. The she-teacher card features a hint of pink and some flower patterns:

And the he-teacher version shows off some geometrical designs and darker colour palette:

And so again, it turns out you can use Maja Design papers for any project and theme, and you are not limited to its original theme ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s what I used for my cards:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: Spellbinders; stamp: Lemonade; brads: Craftmania; charms: my stash.

I hope the teachers who get the cards would feel appreciated! After all, they are like second parents to our kids ๐Ÿ™‚

See you soon!

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today ๐Ÿ™‚

In many countries Mother’s Day was already celebrated, but in Poland it comes on May 26th, so just in two days ๐Ÿ™‚ And since my getting married I have two moms, I made two cards for the occasion, using the latest collection by Maja Design, Denim & Girls:

For the foccal points of my cards I chose images from the Girls In Jeans sheet. As jeans and laces are totally my thing ๐Ÿ˜‰ I thought the images would represent me giving flowers to my moms.

In one card I stamped and embossed the sentiment diretly onto the image piece and then mounted it over layered papers and added some mini roses and a filigree chipboard flourish:

As I like adding tiny elements to my projects, I cut out a star tag from the signature strip and accented it with glitter:

In the other card I mimicked the jeans-lace layers from the image, using paper and cotton lace, and then added a resin heart filled with miniroses. Glitter and some bling add the glamour touch:

I hope my moms would like the cards – do you? ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; stamps: Lemonade; chipboard: Scrapiniec; bling, string, lace – my stash.

So that’s all for today, thank you for visiting – and happy Mother’s Day to all moms out there!
