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

There are several occasions to celebrate in June, like Children’s Day and Father’s Day, but I guess no other June day is so eagerly awaited by so many: the end of the school year 🙂 Apart from marking the beginning of the much-desired summer holidays, it’s also a chance to thank the teachers. And so I made two cards for this occasion to bring to you today 🙂

I used our latest release, the Everyday Life collection. In the first card I used chipboard elements embossed with gold ep – they add elegance to the simple design with the beautiful sunflowers bouquet image. I also added the book image to make the card more “teacherish” 🙂

In the second card I applied a stencil pattern upon the background paper using translucent glitter paste – it added glam and texture while not obscuring the paper pattern. Then I added chipboard pieces and in the centre I put a stamped books image, decorated with the paper-piecing technique:

Even though the cards are layered and dimensional, they’ll still fit into envelopes! 🙂

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamp, chipboard pieces, stencil: Agateria; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; pearls: ScrapbBerry’s.

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later 🙂

 

Cherish Simple Moments

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

I’m so thrilled to bring you another project that  I made using the brand new Everyday Life collection! This set is so versatile that it matches any occasion and so many various themes! Last time I shared romantic, feminine and flowery Mother’s Day cards and today I bring you a masculine layout featuring a totally different colour scheme – and it’s still the same collection 🙂 Love it!

I chose the papers that match the colours from a photo of my hubby and our elder son learning to ride a bike 🙂 I’m happy I was able to capture this moment, so “everyday” and natural and yet so special!

I chose a dark brown paper for the background, so that the photo and all the embellishments pop up. I cut some strips of papers and added a signature strip to make a design grid, put the photo upon them and filled the space with flowers.

I arranged the title using words cut out from one of the papers (don’t you think it’s a great idea? Plenty of words to choose from, too!):

I also included some other cut-out elements, and added gold paint splashes to brighten the whole:

I love how this photo portraits my husband as a loving and caring dad, making sure our boy feels safe and supported. And I’m glad I was able to scrapbook this moment with beautiful papers.

Here’s what I used for my layout:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; clock face: Maya Road; bling: Marianne Design; paint: Ecoline.

That’s all for today, have a nice day and see you soon!

 

 

Mother’s Day Cards

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

Mother’s Day is celebrated throughout the world, though on various days. In Poland the celebration comes on May 26th, so it’s high time to prepare some handmade cards for the occasion 🙂

I made the card using our latest collection, Everyday Life – despite the name it’s perfect for special days too 🙂

In the first card I used mini flowers patterns for the background and added a chipboard frame and some lace. On top of that background I put images cut out of one of the elements sheets, added gold thread and  a chipboard sentiment that I coloured with markers into the ombre effect. I also covered the heart image with glitter:

For the second card I chose the beautiful rose-patterned paper and applied a heart pattern using a stencil and modeling paste. Then I filled the heart with mini roses in colours that matched the paper palette. Then I attached the same chipboard sentiment as in the previous card, but this time I only covered it with opalescent glitter, I completed the design with delicate lace and string bows:

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard pieces, stencil, paste: Agateria, lace: my stash.

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