Good morning dear Maja Visitors, welcome to the blog today 🙂
I hope you and your loved ones are safe and your summer is going good despite the restrictions imposed on us all over the world.
Summer usually gives a great opportunity to visit our family and friends living away, but this summer is very much different due to the pandemic. Some countries closed their borders, other don’t allow to travel abroad or introduce lockdown conditions, which all makes it impossible to leave our homes. We are lucky enough to have other means of contact such as phones or the Internet, but there are other ways to show our loved ones we remember 🙂 The Miles Apart collection was intended for such occasions and today I bring you two cards that you could send out when you can’t visit:
For my cards I used the most beautiful rose papers from the collection (in my opinion, of course 🙂 ), in the rose and blue version.
As the post stamp images from the Ephemera sheet I created my own custom pieces by die-cutting the post stamp shapes and filling them with flowery patterned rectangles. Then I added some stamping:
The central elements of the cards are chipboard hearts mounted on kraft cardstock for nice contrast and placced upon beautiful guipure lace. To match these pieces with the rose paper, I added a mini roses below the hearts. For the sentiment I used the ones printed on signature strips – you know I love using those mini patterns! The blue one says “Miss You”:
The pink card follows the suit, I just changed the plaid matting paper for a striped one and used the “Thinking of you” sentiment:
I really like the way they turned out and I hope someone who’d receive such a card would definitely feel our love and bond!
Here’s what I used:
Maja Design papers:
Thinking of you
The little things
Other: dies: Joy!; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard: the MiniArt; lace: my stash.
That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you soon!
Good morning Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
So the day has come: a new collection from Maja Design is being released right now! And I am absolutely smitten by this collection: it’s so classic Maja, but with a fresh air to it too, with stunning ephemera images and most beautiful soft colour palette. It’s as versatile as any Maja collection, even though it has a particular theme: missing some loved ones because we can’t see them as they are miles apart. I think it also fits well in the current times of the world pandemic, when many have to stay at homes due to lockdowns or quarantines. So these paper would be perfect for all those “thinking of you” and “miss you” cards or other projects, images of elderly people would be perfect for Grandparents’ Day projects. But the collection features some gorgeous flower designs as well, simply ideal for wedding or birthday cards and albums. And so today I bring you a wedding exploding box with my most favourite designs from the set 🙂
As usually, I decorated the box lid with a flower cluster, with wedding rings ribbon and some golden die-cut leaves. On the sides of the lids I used pieces of the signature strip – I just love those small patterns or sentiments ready to be used like this:
Then the outer walls feature the beautiful rose bouquets design, definitely my most favourite pattern!
Inside I put some money pockets and a tag for writing in wishes, and in the centre a filigree chipboard cake decorated with matching mini roses and a lace bow:
I really loved working with these papers and I’m sure you will too! What do you think of this collection?
Here’s what I used:
Maja Design papers:
Other: flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: Spellbinders, Magnolia; chipboard cake: Wycinanka.pl; sequins, ribbon, lace: my stash.
That’s all for today, I wish you a safe and happy summer time – see you soon!
