Hello Maja Friends,

February is almost over, and I can’t wait when the Spring comes. I say it each year, but I can hardly bear the winter for so long. So from now I am ready for Spring Floral creations

I really love the Vintage Spring Basics collection, it’s so easy to create with it.

I used mostly one sheet for one card, and used both sides of it.

However the butterflies are so fun

But actually I’ve added the bright colors for the flowers

To my second card I also added the ribbon and lace

Products used:

Vintage Spring Basics 6×6 Paper pad

Dessert Cook Book

Hello Maja Friends,

The holidays are over, however winter season is a perfect time for baking or preparing something sweet.

This time I made a cook book using Fika collection

I like it for the color palette and the patterns it has

I made the dividers for my book. To add a more vintage look I used the lace , strings and the die cuts.

I played mostly with the fruit and tea/ coffee theme embellishments

I also made some fussy cutting

 

Most of all I like the colors of purple, green and chocolate, so yummy

Have  a good day

Hello Maja Fans,

Christmas is right behind the corner and I guess some of you may still need a few cards to make for their friends.

Today I am going to share a bunch of cards that can be given to men

St.Nicholas Cards_3

Well sometimes it is so tricky to create the card with no flowers, lace and bows. However everyone can manage with it, indeed.

St.Nicholas Cards

I started with creating my background for the cards using the paper from the 6×6 paper pad of Joyous Winterday, and then added the strip at the bottom, I stitched 2 of them together

I also added the striped ribbon, it adds the accent and looks like an eye catching detail

St.Nicholas Cards_7

and of course I used the images of St.Nicholas

St.Nicholas Cards_1

I added a few paper layers around the image, that I die cut.

St.Nicholas Cards_5

When you create a masculine card you mostly choose the simple shapes for your dies, but actually you can add some intricate detail too.

and even crochet snowflake can look good for such cards

I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Hello Maja Design Friends,

I’ve got a couple of cards to share with you today – totally inspired by the snow in Winter

Wonderful_Winter_Cards

For my cards I used Vintage Winter collection , my number one among all of the beautiful Maja Christmas papers. Each year I can not pass by and create a bunch of cards with mostly blue colors.

Wonderful_Winter_Cards_01

I like the color combo of white and blue, it seems that I can feel how calm it is when the snow falls down

Wonderful_Winter_Cards_03

I’ve added the flowers on my cards, mostly white and silver grey, I guess they add the frosty feeling.

Wonderful_Winter_Cards_02

I also die cut the frames from the papers and the glittered cardstock, the snowflakes chipboard that I kept raw and the crochet doily

Wonderful_Winter_Cards_04

Hope you have liked my cards and enjoy this special time of the year.

Hello, The winter Season is right behind the corner, I feel. So it’s time to create the snow inspired cards

WinterWonderland_Cards_MajaDesign

Though I don’t like the winter season at all, I like creating the cards this time of the year. I used the Home for The Holdays collection. It reminds me about the heavily snow times we have when I as a child. Now the climate has changed.

WinterWonderland_Cards_MajaDesign_1

I’ve added the die cut ornaments and the chipboard frame

I also added the crochet snowflakes and it really came out cozy and warm
