Hello everyone! I hope you all are fine. It has been a while since I last posted here. As I have started studying again, on my old days 😀 20 years after last time. Anyways, we were invited to a confirmation, so here comes the confirmand bag I made for Patrick. And I am sure you can spot which collection I have used.

Yes! You are right, the wonderful Denim & Friends collection.

I have fastened som e twine around the image. And with this collection you get several of these lovely images, perfect for any boy/youth card. And behind I have fastened a bit of corrugated paper.

And behind all this I have placed a small papebag. Inside the paperbag I have two tags. Where I have stamped texts for the confirmand.

To make a more shabby look, I have painted here and there with white Gesso.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today

With love,

Hi there! How are you? Have you seen the new edition of the Sofiero papers? They even comes with monocromes papers. For my card I have used this gorgeous collection.


I have coloured up Tilda (Magnolia) here with some yellow/greenish colours. As I wanted the paper bag to have a fresh, springlike touch. The Sofiero papers are perfect for any romantic Spring card.


The clipboard frame around the image is from Wycinanka, called Apple bloss. I have put it up on 3D foam.


For the text I have used gold embossing, and it is from Stempelglede “Dear Confirmand”. I have fastened it to a paperstraw.


Here is a closer look.


On the left side I have put some lovely Ephemera cards, which is cut out.


Here is a list of the papers used:

Hello lovely Maja fans! I am back with a paperbag this time. I have decorated it with gorgeous pattern papers from the Vintage Spring Basics collection. Hope you like it.


I will give you the list of papers used at the end of the post.


The image from Magnolia is coloured with Distress Ink reinkers, and in colours that I feel matches the papers very well. They both have the soft, romantic tones. The sentiment and surrounding stamps are from Stempelglede.


The small butterflies are cut out from the Vintage Spring papers.


Since the front is so heavily decorated, I have made the back simple. I just love these beautiful papers, and here you got to see more of them.


I hope you enjoyed my post. Here comes the papers used:

Thank you so much for visiting! Have a great day!

With love,

Hi there! Still in the middle of November, but I am in the Christmas mood. When it comes to cardmaking, that is. Who could resist with the gorgeous papers from I wish.


Today I will show you a giftbag that I have decorated.


I have coloured the sweet image from Magnolia called Holly Wreath Tilda, with Distress Inks re-inkers, in the same colours as the I wish papers I have used. I love these warm nostalgic colours. The Merry Christmas text is also from Magnolia. The postmark stamps around the image are from Stempelglede.


Under you see the back of the bag.


The texts on the tags (Magnolia).


You get a better view on the different layers on the picture under.


Here is the list of the paper used:

Vintage wedding card

Hi there! I am back with a wedding card I made last month. I got a request to make a card that should be large enough to contain greetings from several persons. And ofcours I had to use the Vintage Romance collection for this card!


The groom is interested in cars, so I then I chose this image on the stamp.


I made the heart by cutting out a Spellbinder heart from bazzill paper, then I glued on several flowers. I have also painted them with white Gesso. Behind the heart I have put som cheese  cloth and a heart doily. Then some corrugated paper that also is painted with white gesso. On the right side I have a small pocket, with two tags inside. The tages are made with DooHickey dies from Magnolia.


Up to the left I have placed two more tags “So wrapped lovely” (Magnolia). They are so beautiful in Maja Design’s pattern papers.


The small butterflies are from the Vintage Spring Basics collection and the “6th of May” sheet. I cut them out with scissors, and add some walnut stain ink to the edges of the wings. Under you can see the tags with a beautiful sentiment from Stempelglede.


A close up of two keys, also made with DooHickey dies. You can also see that all paper edges are inked with Distress Ink pad – Walnut Stain. And I have used my sewing machine on the papers too.


On the card inside to write on I have coloured a wedding couple from Magnolia with Distress Ink re-inkers. The swirls are made with a Stempelglede stamp. As you might see, the card is actually a decorated paper bag.


The black/silver charm is glued on to the heart.


The small flowers are also cut out from Maja Design papers, inked and added Stickles-Star Dust. In the middle I have put some liquid pearls. I have used a retro flower punch for the flowers.


Here is the back of the card and the card to write on.


And the front of the card… 🙂
