Hello Maja Friends,

I’ve a new card to share with you today

Though I am not a coffee addicted person, I am more a tea -lover, however I enjoy creating something with coffee and desserts theme.

well, as you may have noticed I started with fussy cutting the images of a lady, a coffee pot and a few flower bouquets.

I like the berry palette this collection – Little Street Cafe has- and it gives so many opportunities to create with.

beautiful papers remind about how clever we need to spend our time for ourselves

Hope you can enjoy your week end cup of coffee or a cup of tee, and then you will dig into crafting.

Hello Maja Design Friends.  Jennifer Snyder here celebrating Spring with some floral cards.

Today I combined two Maja Design collections to create my cards; the Little Street Cafe Collection, Fika collection and Miles Apart. These are the individual sheets from the collections:   “Feeling Good” paper from Little Street Cafe; “Be Safe” and “Distance” from Miles Apart; and “Hemgjord saft” from Fika.

     Be safe 

 

The first spring card combines the yellow/gold color from Little Street Cafe with the beautiful purple tones of Fika.

The dies for the flowers are from Spellbinders.

 

 

This card uses the papers from Miles Apart.  The delicate foliage pattern looks great with pink gingham paper.

I adore gingham as if that were not obvious  in the brown gingham ribbon on the first card as well as the pink gingham ribbon on this card.

 

 

Thank you for stopping here.

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

On March 8th many countries celebrated International Women’s Day and so today I bring you two feminine cards 🙂

I think what many women most long for are the feelings of being encouraged, supported or appreciated, therefore I created cards using some nice sentiments to express those:

I made the card using the Little Street Cafe collection as it is very feminine and romantic, yet without too much sugary pink 😉 For the first card I layered papers to create a subtly patterned background for a die-cut dream catcher decorated with pearls, feathers and flowers. I added teh sentiments that say: “Believe in yourself” and “You can achieve anything!”:

The other card includes a message of appreciation with the stamped sentiment “You are great”. I decorated the card with various papers layered in the background and an image of a lady sitting in a little street cafe 🙂 I embellished the card with sweethart flowers, acrylic gems and some leaves die-cut from vellum:

Being a woman, I would be really happy to receive such cards – would you? 🙂

And here’s what I used for the cards:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Spellbinders, CreaLies, Agateria; stamps: Agateria; flowers: Wild Orchid Creafts; gems: Prima.

That is all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later!

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

February is all about love, so today I bring you a Valentine card I made using the Little Street Cafe collection:

I used the gate fold card base and decorated the front panels with layered papers and hand-coloured stamped images of a boy and girl kissing. As the background panel is busy with flowers, I placed the figures upon a glitter heart to make them more visible:

When you untie the ribbon the card opens…

…to reveal the inside panel with a stamped and embossed motives: a red sentiment heart against golden hearts background. I used the masking stamping technique to achieve this effecct. I also decorated the inside flaps with chipboard flourish corners to stabilise the card and help it keep its shape:

There’s also some space left to write your name in 😉

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other:

stamps and chipboard: Agateria; die: CreaLies; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; acrylic glitter stones: Prima; ribbon: Rayher.

I do like how the card turned out, vibrant and cheerful – what do you think?

See you soon!

Hello Maja Design friends.  Today I present a card using on of my favorite Maja Design collections – Little Street Cafe.  I love the rich warm colors of the collection.  They feel joyful.

Take a look at the names of the papers used on the card.  The names even make me feel happy and warm:

Sunshine, Hot Drinks, Feeling Good, Something Sweet

The adorable dog stamp is “Let’s Get Cozy” from Spellbinders.  It was stamped on to watercolor paper and colored with watercolor pencils.  Next, the shaker mix is from Buttons Galore and More.  The stamped sentiment is from Stampendous Puppy Frame stamp set.

Thank you for stopping here.  Happy Crafting.
