Good morning, dear Visitors, welcome to the Maja Design blog πŸ™‚

After a series of projects I created with the latest Celebration collection I return to one of my all-time favourites, Denim & Friends. I just love the colours and patterns of these papers! And here’s the layout I made:

The design of the page is my version of the clean&simple style πŸ˜‰ I didn’t want to cover the beautiful background paper too much, so I matted the photo with just a couple of tags and a flower cluster mounted on a chipboard clock face:

I also decorated the paper with some stamping and a delicate brick pattern that I added with a stencil and modeling paste. The art clay angel wing adds some lightness to the darker colours:

I die-cut the layout title from the brown Monochromes set matching the collection – I’m so happy Maja started to release the plain papers sets, they save the pain of sacrificing beautiful patterned papers for matting and small elements πŸ˜€

Though it’s not the classic clean&simple page, I still like the way it turned out – light and fresh πŸ™‚ What do you think?

And here’s the list of supplies I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: die: Kesi’art; stamp: My Favourite Things; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; stencil: Tim Holtz; chipboard: Wycinanka, button: Lemoncraft; wing mold: Prosvet.

 

Thank you for visiting today and see you later πŸ™‚

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today πŸ™‚

I’m still playing with our latst release, the Celebration collection – it’s so versatile and elegant that your creative process is just pure pleasure πŸ™‚ And here’s the card I created:

This time I focused on the blue shades of the collection and chose the classy Art Deco swirls of the Festivities sheet for my background. Then I delicately brushed glitter paste along its edges and I matted it with a Monochrome paper in matching colour and a delicate polka dot Party paper.

I arranged my composition of flowers and art clay wings in the centre:

I stamped my sentiment onto a strip of vellum and heat-embossed it with golden ep. I also added glittery drops. liquid pearls dots and cheesecloth to finish my card:

The card turned out pretty dimensional, therefore I added a cardstock card box decorated with gold metallic washi tape with a dots pattern:

I really like the way it turned out, light and delicate, perfect for a romantic soul πŸ™‚

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Prima; stamp: Lemonade; embossing powder: Ranger; glitter paste: Creative Expressions; wings, glitter drops, cheesecloth: my stash.

 

And that is all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later πŸ™‚

Celebration Exploding Box

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today πŸ™‚

Today is St. Valentine’s Day, a celebration of love and devotion. What a better way to celebrate love and devotion than a marriage? And what a better way to celebrate a marriage than to use the Celebration collection? πŸ™‚ And so I combined the two and created this wedding exploding box:

Perhaps the colour palette I chose is not a typical wedding set of colours, but they look so elegant to me! For the outer sides I decided on the dark brown roses pattern and added a mauve-sand flower cluster on the top lid:

Traditionally, inside walls are decorated with delicate patterned papers and have little theme pockets to put money gifts into: for a new house, for a honey moon, for a crib and the fourth wall is for writing in wishes:

In the centre I placed an intricate chipboard cake that I decorated with a lace bow and mini roses in matching colours:

I really like the way the box turned out, elegant and light! What do you think?

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: Spellbinders; chipboard: Wycinanka.pl, ribbon, lace: my stash.

And that’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you soon!

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today πŸ™‚

I’ bringing you the layout I made using our latest release, the Celebration collection:

The layout is cheerful and light, featuring the subtle mauve and cream colours of the collection – yet it contains a strong message that I used as a title-journaling, taking advantage of the signature strip it was printed on:

Then I placed my photo upon layers of pieces of papers. I tried to showcase as many beautifull patterns as possible πŸ˜‰ I added a chipboard clockface and some flowers:

Splashes of mists in matching colours, glitter ink dots and printed cotton ribbon add some shine to the page – it’s about life celebration so a bit of glam doesn’t hurt πŸ˜‰

The layout also proves that boy layouts can employ pink shades without going too sweet πŸ˜‰ Don’t you think?

And here’s what I used:

Other: flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; mists: Tattered Angels; glitter ink: 13@rts; chipboard: Wycinanka; butterflies: UHK Gallery; ribbon: my stash.

 

That’s all from me today, thank you for visiting and hope to see you later!

 

For Grandma And Grandpa

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

In a couple of days grandkids in Poland are going to celebrate the Gradma and Grandpa days. We all know how important is the role of grandparents to kids, and so it’s one of our most favourite celebrations. for that occasion I made two cards, for grandma and grandpa:

Perhaps you’ve recognised the collection I used for my cards? Yes, that’s our latest release, Celebration πŸ™‚ Both cards have the same design and feature the images of elegant vintage people.

For the grandma’s card I selected mauve papers from the collection:

 

I layered papers, added a chipboard filigree decorated with a pearl brad and a flower cluster adorned with printed ribbon:

The grandpa’s card features blue papers:

 

I also used a chipboard piece on the layers of papers, but to give it a more masculine feel I chose a net fragment and added gears and a nail brad apart from the flowers:

The Celebration collection is just perfect for any festivity, with its subtle colours and classy patterns.

What do you think?

 

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Lemonade; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; brads: Rahyer, Craftmania; chipboard: Scrapiniec; ribbon, string: my stash.

 

That’s all for today, thank you for stopping by and see you soon!
