Hi everyone! Here I am with a card using the Celebration Collection. This time I have mixed the pink and blue papers from this wonderful collection.

The shape of the card is cut out with a GoKreate die. Then I have made it an easel card. I have cut out a heart from Spellbinder dies, and placed it all with flowers.

The text from Stempelglede says: You are special.

I made some poststamps from a lovely flower papers, with a DooHickey die from Magnolia. The postmark stamp is from Stempelglede.

The image is from Magnolia. I have coloured her with Distress Ink, re-inkers. The blue is Weathered Wood, and the pink is Victorian Velvet. I have used the colour Hickery Smoke to make the darker places, and shadows. I think she is beautiful with flowers in her hair. The text on the tags are from Stempelglede.

This card was also in the February issue of Ett Trykk. As a presentation card of my self, and my style of cardmaking. Here comes a list of the papers used:

Hi there! Finally here is my post. I have often gotten the question of how I make my cards, and now I have made a video showing how I have made this. It is made with the gorgeous papers from the new Celebration collection.

Here is the video:

I have also taken some more picture of the card.

All the flowers are made with the Maja papers, I have shown you how in the video.

Another closeup. I just love the blue colours, together with the beige.

A cute moon and some castles under a starry sky. Perfect for a princess.

And it is an easel card, like this from the side.

Hi everyone! Today I am back with an easel card. I have used one of my favorite collections for my card, the Denim & Friends collection. The card was made for a colour challenge at the Norwegian card magazine Ett Trykk, with the colours mint and turquoise. I tried to find some suitable Maja papers to fit the challenge.



The cute image is from Magnolia and the Denim Collection, and I have coloured it with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. The dies used are also from Magnolia.


The texts are from Ett Trykk.


Under you can view the card from the side. I made it for my friend’s 40th anniversary.


I have made the flowers myself. I have placed them both on the upper part of the card, and on the lower part. So when it is open, it looks like the flowers are together in a way.


Want to see how they are made? Here I have some photos from the making.


I lay the flowers down on a newspaper, and spray them with water (the flower dies are from Magnolia).


Then I curl them up, and let them to dry.


When they are dry, I curl them up again, and place them together with some Wild Orchid Crafts stamens in the middle. Here comes a list of papers used:

Hi there! Here I am with an easel card. I have used some lovely papers from the Vintage Summer Basics collection. I wanted to give it a little hint of retro and vintage look. I hope you like it!


I have painted two girls from Magnolia that might be leaving or they are saying goodbye to someone close to them. As the animal lover I am, I had to have a cute dog in the scene too.


I made a propell with dies from Magnolia. All dies used are from the Vintage box, third edition.


The postcard from Paris, is cut out from the pattern paper called Minnen.


For this suitcase I have used pattern papers from the Vintage Summer Basics collecton and dies from the Vintagebox third edition.


Here are the paper used:

IMG_2370Hi there! Today is my turn to host the lovely Maja Design blog. In February I was asked to make a card for baby Elliot. But you know how it is, the real life calls, and you make the card in the last minute.

Anyway, I had so much fun making it. And I got to use the super cute papers from Vintage Baby, which is perfect for baby cards. I have used some of the blue tones from the collection.


I have coloured up Baby Edwin from Magnolia, with Distress Ink, Markers and re-inkers.


The postmark stamp and the stamped sentiment are stamps from Stempelglede. The same goes for the butterfly stamp on the writing-part of the card.


Many of the dies used are from Magnolia’s DooHickey club volume 9. And I think the stars fit the image well.


I love the cute little envelopes, also from vol. 9. The tags are cut out with a die called Tilda Tag. I have added Stickles-Star Dust on the image.


I have made the card as an easel card.


Here are the lovely papers used:
