Hello sweet Maja Fans.

A few weeks aga I played along with a loaded bag valentines challenge. I loved it so much I think I will do this more often , It’s a very nice way to make a big gift out of little gifts.

I used the Miles Apart collection ( I so Loooveeee this one ) together with a kit from Kimya . This kit contained the basic things paperbags, envelops and tags and such..

Designpaper ,embellisments ,everything else you have to provide for your self.   I really loved it and want to show the outcome of my project to you.

 

This is the front of the bag loaded with fun things.

and this is the back.

In it two decorative items just for fun:  a lollyop made with a big rosette and a altered popsicle stick .

A decorated giftbag with alteredspool and a little bagholder made from two  manilla labels.

A little pocketletter containing a small envelope for maybe a message or giftcard, shakerpocket and pocket with label.

two little brown bags with thea and powder choclate milk, and a bigger shakerpocket made of a glassline bag because shakers are fun.

The stamps I used are from Waltzing Mouse.

 

And a minialbum made with 3 little craft envelopes.

Each envelope contains a little card with photomat on the back and front.

I hope you like this project just as much as I do. It was so much fun to make. I know I will make  some more it’s just a perfect gift to give for some one who already has everything.

Thank you very much  for visiting, hope to see you back next time.

Thank you,  and stay safe.

Sending a Hug – Slide Card using Miles Apart Collection

Hello friends.  Jennifer Snyder here today to share a slider greeting card created using the 6×6 paper pad from the ” Miles Apart” collection.  My choice in using this collection rises from a dark and gloomy winter in the COVID era.  I believe everyone could use both Spring and a hug.  This collection makes me think of both with gorgeous florals and delicate prints combined in lovely soft colors.

The images of the papers from the 6×6 paper pad are below:  “Distance” A and B side of paper, and “Stay Creative”.  I also featured the Monochrome collection, Shades of Miles”.  The matching solids are perfectly coordinated for the Miles Apart papers and help make crafting easier.

Distance

This is a slider card with flaps that pull from the sides to create a stage with a scene when opened.  I am sure this will bring a smile to to person who slides it open revealing a hug.

The dies used in this card are from Spellbinders brand new “Make A Scene” collection by Becca Feeken.  There are several scenes to make but I choose the window scene overlooking my Maja Design garden.

Happy crafting my friends.  I hope you have a fabulous day.

For the Love of Dogs – Cards to Celebrate Dogs

Hello friends.  Jennifer Snyder here to celebrate dogs.
 Pets are so important in our lives.  They are family members and our best friends so I think it’s important to reach out and celebrate when someone I know adds a pet to the family or has to say farewell.
Today’s cards uses two collections, Miles Apart and a sheet from Holiday in the Alps.  I also used the monochrome solid color sheet from the fabulous coordinating Monochrome collection, Shades of Miles.
Here’s a list of the 12×12 sheets used from the collections:
Miles Apart – Miss you (B side)
Miles Apart – Phone Call
Miles Apart  – Stay Home
Miles Apart – Safe and Sound
Holiday In the Alps – Winter Night
Miss you-bsA phone callStay home-bs
Safe & sound-bsWinter night-bs
I created cards for boy and girl dogs.  No I’m not sure if people care, but I certainly try to be considerate of the owners sensitivity.  If I know the dog is a boy, I’m going to try to be mindful.    That’s just me.
The dies used in the cards today are an old classic die from Spellbinders (Pawing Around – Dog).  Isn’t that a sweet die?
The stamped sentiment is from Stampendous called Puppy Frames.

 

Thanks for stopping here today.  Happy Crafting

 

 

For You, Grandma, For You Grandpa

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

A couple of days ago we celebrated Grandmother’s and Grandparent’s Day in Poland. And I created a set of cards for this occasion.

Both cards use the Miles Apart collection and feature the same design – a middle panel upon a background of a different pattern, a chipboard heart sentiment I very often choose to make almost identically composed cards as I love to see how papers and embellishments can totally change the final appearance. Just take a look: the card for grandma has the floral panel placed upon the heart-patterned background. I combined these with chipboard mandala doilies and a mini roses cluster that nicely blends into the printed flowers. The delicate and romantic look is topped with opalescent sequins:

Now the card for Grandpa: the same design and the focal element, but instead of flowers and doilies I added die-cut gears and moustache, and matted the chipboard heart with a piece of paper. The central panel is filled with ballons and instead of sequins I decorated the card with teeny tiny gold dots that were left after die cutting the gears 🙂

As you can see, you can play around with the same design and by changing patterns, colours and embellishments get dozens of various looks 🙂

Here’s what I used for my cards:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Cheery Lynn Designs, Cottage Cutz; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard: Agateria; sequins: my stash.

 

That’s all for today, see you soon!

Hello and welcome back Maja Design friends. I hope this post finds you safe and well. Today I am back to share my next project using the gorgeously stunning paper collection of “Miles Apart”. The pastel colours of this collection always lead me to using Sepia photos. And close at hand was this photo of me from our wedding day quite some years ago. I have never used it before, so I am really glad that I chose this range to scrap with it.

I selected the sheets below to start off my project. I used the bs of “A few words” for my background page. I love this piece with all the additional handwriting and slight colouring over the background. I made lots of layers using “Keep in touch” and “Keeping busy” both a and b sides of each was used. I distressed my papers and layered them up using old board. I also tore some sections to run across the background page.

I chose to use 2 sheets of “The little things”. From the first sheet I did a lots of fussing cutting of the flowers and leaves as you will see above. I used a second pieces to add some layers in my project behind the chipboards.

The layering of this project was the most time consuming part this time around. I also used chipboards to help add more layers in. Each of these pieces were coloured with relief paste and sanded back to give the worn shabby look of time gone by. I also added in some extra flowers from my stash and a little muslin and flower pearls to keep with the prettiness of the papers. I have a few closeup photos for you below.

   

Amongst all the distressed layers I have added in some charms, muslin and flower pearls to keep it simple and shabby. I also added in a little more of the relief paste around some of the paper layers and over this some random stamping using a script stamp.

Well that is all from me today. I hope you enjoyed my post and stay tuned for more Design Team gorgeousness very soon.

Happy Crafting
