Hello, dear Maja friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

The weather this winter is very weird, no snow or frost, just dull rainy days. It might make you pretty discouraged, and I think there’s no better way to overcome blue feelings than the colour therapy 🙂 And Maja Design’s latest collection, Little Street Cafe, is just perfect for the task, with those juicy purples, yellows and oranges! Today I have a very colourful wedding exploding box to share using these optimistic papers:

I think the flowery pattern of the Always Time sheet is so beautiful! I covered the outside walls of the box with panels of it paired with plaids of the Coffee Al Fresco and Delicious papers:

I tried to mimick the flower bouquet of the paper on the lid of the box:

Inside walls are covered with charming polka dots pattern and tiny flowers:

As exploding boxes often serve as practical (and beautiful at the same time 😉 ) means of giving money to the newlyweds, so I usually put pockets on the walls and suggest some goals, like “for a dream journey”, “for a baby crib”, “for the home”, etc.

There’s also a small panel for writing in wishes:

And as usually, there’s a chipboard “cake” in the centre of the box, this time with a couple as the topper:

I like how the colours of this collection complement one another to make a juicy optimistic combo. I think this exploding box would be perfect for a boho-style wedding. What do you think?

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Spellbinders; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; cake: Wycinanka.pl; bling: my stash.

Hello Maja Design friends.  Jennifer Snyder here with you to share a card made using Maja Design’s the fresh fun “Little Street Cafe”.  This collection is cheery and filled with bold happiness, warm images, gold, purples, pinks and more.
Below are the papers used for the card.  You can see how beautiful the patterns are in the collection.
“Coffee al Fresco”
“Hot Drink”

 

 This card is for my best friend who is having a rough time lately.  Everyone needs a hug.  She’s been my friend since we met in college …..wow 35 years?  Could that be right?  Hmmm gotta check the math.  Yep – it’s correct.  That means a special card is required.

The flowers on the sheet called “Coffee al Fresco” are perfect for the occasion.

 

 

The necklace die is from Spellbinders.  It made for a super fun project.

Thanks for stopping here.
Send someone you love a card today!!  Happy crafting.

For Grandparents

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

New year, new beginnings, they say 🙂 So for my first post in the new year I bring you a first project I made using the brand new collection, Little Street Cafe. I fell in love with this collection the very moment I opened my DT box – what a treat! One of the more vibrant colour palettes in the Maja stock, with juicy yellows and oranges paired with deep burgundy and sand beige, and all while keeping the classic vintage Maja style with its charasteristic plaids, stripes and flower designs. And don’t forget the ephemera sheet! Soo beautiful! I already have some ideas for this collection, but today I bring you a card for grandparents, as is Poland we’re going to celebrate Grandma’s Day on January 21st and Grandpa’s Day the next day.

I must admit I had difficulties choosing the papers for my first project, as all are equally tempting 😉 but eventually I decided upon on of the plaids and flower patterns for the backgound. For the top layer I cut out a panel with a street view – so perfect for the stamped image I chose for my focal element:

I added stamped sentiments and an acrylic heart that also matches the papers’ colours:

The flower pattern on the background paper gave me the idea for the mini roses cluster I added in the lower corners:

The card turned out slightly too dimensional to go into an envelope, so I added a card box too:

I really love how this card turned out, with its vibrant colours and beautiful paper patterns!

Here’s my supply list:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Penny Black, Lemonade; dies: CreaLies; chipboard: Scrapiniec; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; markers: Kuretake.

 

Do you celebrate Grandparent’s Day/s in your countries?

See you soon!

 

Sending Valentine’s Love

 Hello Maja Design friends.  Jennifer Snyder here to share a Valentine’s card created using the gorgeous new collection, Little Street Cafe.
This collection is fresh, cheery and full of springtime color.
Here are the papers used from the collection;
Coffee al Fresco
Tea Please ( A and B side)
Something Sweet
 This card is on the clean and simple side with the die cut “love” sentiment capturing all the attention.  I gave the die cut word some added interest by using the different patterns form the paper collection.  Hard to choose which patterns I wanted to use because they are all so lovely.

Maja Design also has a monochrome collection that coordinates perfectly with the colors of the Little Street Cafe collection, for those people like myself, who must have everything matching.

 

Thank you for stopping here today.

A Christmas heart to you! (and a Birthday tag)

Hi everyone! Here I am with a heart shaped Christmas card using gorgeous papers from the collection called Vintage Frost Basics.

I have cut out all the dies from the pattern papers. Here you can see tones, music stand and postmarks. I have coloured the Magnolia image to match with the papers in blue and brown.

For the postmarks I have used the sheet called 2nd of December.

And here is the music stand. I have added a little angel above.

I really enjoyed making this card, using some of my favourite colours, and adding the notes around the singing image. The image is coloured using Distress inks for my painting. I have also added some Fran-tage around the image, so it looks like the snow which is falling down. So I wish for a white Christmas.

Have you seen the new collection from MajaDesign? It is called Little street Cafe.

I have made some products with these papers lately, and here is my first. A birthday tag.

I love the fun colours, they just make me smile, like this image here.

Here I have used: Tea please, Something sweet and Delisious.

Thank you so much for visting the MajaDesign blog!

With love,
