Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer here with you today and I wanted to share with you two beautiful envelopes in which you can gift either money or a gift card. Our-days these type or presents seem to be more appropriate in some occasions. But its always nice to present something beautifully.

I have some special feelings for Ska vi ta en Fika collection, I just love those purple/lavender shades and can play with it for long time.konv1_fika_majadesign_petzerkonv2and some close ups:konv_det1 konv_det2 lots of different flowers, laces and pearlskonv_det3The envelopes are “closed” with this die cut lacekonv_det4Once again, I have used Ska vi ta en Fika:

Good morning, Maja Design friends, welcome to the blog today :)

With November coming to an end, I think it’s time to think of Christmas presents, especially if you intend making them yourselves. And so today I have a girly diary to share.


As the little lady, who will be writing her secrets in this notebook, likes purples, I chose to work with the Ska Vi Ta En Fika? collection with a bit of the Vintage Spring Basics set, which offered both cold and warm shades of purple, paired with browns and greens too. And so I adapted the same palette for the diary. I layered some papers on the front cover:


…added a ribbon bow and a butterfly charm on the wire:


…and decorated the front with a stamped and hand-coloured image:


On the inner cover, I added the girl’s monogram in a decorative heart on the background of the butterfly and plaid patterns:


There’s also a bonus stamped image at the back of the diary:


…and a little envelope to put in special secrets :)


I hope the girl would like her secret diary :)

And here’s what I used to make it:

Papers: Ska Vi Ta En Fika?: Nybakat, Chaite, Mandelkaka, Lejas café; Vintage Spring Basics: 11th of April BS, 9th of April BS. Other: stamps: Magnolia, Basic Grey; ribbon, twine: Rayher, charm, plate: my stash.

Have you started making your Christmas gifts yet?

Hello Sweeties,

I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new set of cards featuring the Ska vi ta en Fika collection.


I kept the design simple. I just cut a background paper.


Then I die cut a doily, added a few strip of paper, as well as some sisal.


I also die cut some leaves in the Pratstund paper.


Then I added a few flowers and some mica flakes and micro beads.


I followed the same process for the second card. A background paper, a die-cut doily, …


… a few strip of papers, flowers, leaves, and glitters and micro beads as a finishing touch.

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a layout published in Histoires de Pages n°63, a french magazine.

Fleurs by Pascale B.

I started to apply a matte gel medium to protect the paper. Then I added a thin layer of white gesso and some orange Silks with a brayer.

I covered the chipboards with black gesso and some Rust Mica Powder, except one which I colored with a Twinkling H2O and the same Mica Powder. I colored the flowers with some Twinkling H2Os too.

I added some blue and green bisters to the background to remind the water reflection.

I used a 3D matte gel to glue all the embellishments.

I finished with some random stamping and splatters.

Hi all Maja Design Fans! I am back with a new card with the beautiful Fika Collection. The name of the papers are: Kladdkaka Sockerkaka and Två Frøknar. For the green swirl I have used the paper Kitchen Garden from the Life in the Country Collection.

All the paper edges are inked with Distress Ink pad- Walnut Stain, and sewed with sewing machine.

Fika-P1 010

The image is a Saturated Canary stamp called Gardening Gayle. I have coloured her up with Distress Ink – re-inker and Markers. The main coloures are a mix with Victorian Velvet and Dusty Concord (the purple colour) and for the greenish colour I have used Frayed Burlap. As you might see I have also added a lot of spots on the image and around her. These are made with Liquid Pearls-Bisque.  I have added the Liquid Pearls on the Scallop Ovals that frames the image and the text. And also on the Dragonflise (DooHickey’s from Magnolia). 053

Over is a closer look at the Dragonflies. I have cut them out two times from the gorgeous Maja Design papers. Then they get two sets of wings. I have used the paper called Sockerkaka for the first layer, and Två Frøknar for the upper layer.057

The lovely sentiment is a stamp from Stempelglede (Just a Note Collection). Around the image I have stamped with another stamp from Stempelglede called the Vintage Garden Collection.016

The largest roses are from I am Roses. Swirl and flowerberries are from Magnolia, and the buds and smaller roses are from Wild Orchid crafts.


I was inspired by the March Mood board for my card. I just adore the Fika collection, and the warm and cozy colours in it.MoodBoardMarch

I really hope you enjoyed my card for today. Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design Blog!Camilla-sign
