Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to our blog!

Today I am going to celebrate with you ๐Ÿ™‚ And therefore I have some birthday cards:

And what better collection to use for such festive cards than our own Celebration? ๐Ÿ™‚ I mixed papers from the regular and small pads.

 

The first card features a sweet cupcake:

I layered purple and beige papers and used the rich dark brown floral paper for the background, matting the die-cut cupcake with a contrasting sand Monochrome sheet. I added matching polka dot ribbon and a metal charm in the shape of a teapot. Here’s the birthday tea party ๐Ÿ™‚

The stamped sentiment says in Polish: A lot of happiness and sweetness. How fitting!

 

For the second card I used a dreamcatcher motif:

For this card I selected the blue papers of the collection and composed the dreamcatcher combining a doily and feather dies:

I also added vintage ribbon and a button and finished off the design with gem stones, pearls and glitter:

 

I made the third card to…well, use up the leftovers ๐Ÿ˜‰

I used the tiniest bits to punch the doily border and die-cut the banners. Then I used larger pieces to make the background:

The patterned papers make the beauty of the card, so other decorative elements include only flowers, pearl border and some delicate stamping:

 

Here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Marianne Design, X-cut; punch: Martha Stewart; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; stamps: Lemonade, the ScrapBerry’s; bling, pearls: Creative Expressions; glitter: Ranger, Nuvo.

 

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

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today ๐Ÿ™‚

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? ๐Ÿ™‚ 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!
