Hello Maja Friends,

It’s my time to share April inspiration

This time I mixed the papers from different collections, I like to do it from time to time, especially when I have some leftovers after I have finished working on the album

My idea was to create 2 cards, and when you join them together as if they were the parts of the same puzzle.

I mixed Vintage Summer Basics and Life in the Country collections, so perfect for Spring – Summer projects

I miss so much these colors – blue and greens after the long winter

Hope that soon we can enjoy these colors .

Have a good week end

Products used:

Prima Marketing flowers, Spellbinders Dies, Flourish with a Bling Pearls

Hello Maja Friends,

April is coming, however I found a picture taken in August and felt that I need to create something with it immediately, though I skipped the Spring time.

Well, I do like the end of summer, due to the harvest, the  smell of hay, and most of all because of the apples season.

So the apples were my main focus this time. I die cut the trees using the die, and used the negative die cut too. I also make some watercoloring inside this negative die cut tree

I add some drops of watercolors on the stairs die cut too

I didn’t want to be my layout busy with the paper layers or the embellishments, so I added mostly the die cuts   – one more tree, this time topped with the leaves and apples

and Silhouettes Etched Die with a tree  .

I also made some fussy cutting  – just love these roses from Summertime collection

and finished everything with watercolors.

Supplies used:

Summertime collection

Spellbinders Dies, Prima Marketing Flowers and Watercolors.

 

I also wanted to remind you about this month’s Moodboard, you can read about it here,  and to share my sample with you too

I love this color scheme as it has all of my favorite colors

 

I mixed the papers from different collection – Vintage Summer Basics and Crea Diem

I hope you have liked my projects for today.

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

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

St.Nicholas Cards_6

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.

St.Nicholas Cards_4

and even crochet snowflake can look good for such cards

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