Hi everyone! How are you? Here in Norway the Spring has come. It is so lovely to hear the birds singing and the bumblebee sum. So I was inspired to make a Spring card for todays post. Hope you like it.

And what fit better than to use the lovely Vintage Spring Basics Collection! They are perfect for any Spring card.

I have coloured some cute Magnolia stamps in the same colours as the papers. I use Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers for my colouring.

The sentiment is also from Magnolia and the Sumbeam Collection.

The hedgehogs are sitting on tree logs. And you can make them moving 🙂

By pulling the tag on the right side here.

Here a better view on the layers and the logs.

A close up.

And here they are pushed in to the middel of the card again. I was inspired by the super talented Jiwon Jung to make this.

The fence is made with a Magnolia die and Maja papers, so that it stands out a bit. That way it is easier to move the hedgehogs. I have added some Stickles – Star Dust to the image, butterflies and small flowers.

Another closeup.

The metal birds are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Here is a video of the card:

And the list of papers used:

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

Hugs from,

When the sun is shining

Welcome creative friends!

Kerstin is back with a new springtime layout.

After a very long cold period, it finally gets warmer and the daffodils in my garden start to bloom. I love this time, finally, more sun shines again and gives hope for new life. There is a lot to do in the garden right now, but you should also let all five go straight and just enjoy this short time.

This time I used a monochrome paper as background, I love this neutral papers because

you will have so many opportunities to create a selfmade mixed media background.

I used a brick stencil with white gesso, old music paper sheets, stamps, leftovers from craft paper,

Glimmer Mist Spray (Sunflower) from Tattered Angels, Distress Ink Stain from Ranger,

paper frames from La Blanche and wonderful flowers from 49 and Market.

some details

I hope you like this little spring layout inspiration

with monochrome paper from the ‘Shades of Celebration’ collection,

I will return on 18th of April with a

Tutorial 🙂

Happy crafting!

Where are the bunnies hidden?!

Three rabbits hid on this spring project, have you already discovered her?

Maybe there are four 😉 ??

I used our wonderful latest ‘Celebration’ collection for this romantic vintage layout.

 

I love the delicate colours on this sheets, absolutely right for me to create a springtime layout

with a lot of things which make this season so beautiful.

I glued this on a canvas und used it as mural for my springtime home decoration.

Hello Maja friends!

It’s March now and everyone is waiting for spring because we have had enough of the snow and coldness.

As the snow slowly melts and patches of green start to show, a whole
new world unfolds around you, offering a nature experience of a different kind.
As soon as the days start to draw out again shoots begin to show everywhere:
the first to peek through the soil are the snowdrops, daffodils and crocuses.
I was able to discover them in my garden before winter came back.

But what is one of my favorite sayings?

Now matter how long the winter
Spring is sure to follow!

So I was inspired to make a springtime layout with some paper sheets

from the beautiful collection ‘Vintage Romance’

together with some stamps, cutting dies (letters, circles, branches, frames, butterflies, tags, leaves),

lace, feathers, Art stones, old note paper, Distress inks,

a small book page from La Blanche

and a little paper doll from Tim Holtz.

some details

the background paper ‘When I saw you’ has so wonderful delicate green stripes,

very subtly and suitable for beginning of spring

some little hearts in light green were a perfect addition

and I used this paper together with a lot of various cutting dies

oh, the word SUN is hidden on the right side beside this sweet photo

it’s no wonder, or?!

Is like a message to us, that we have to go on and don’t leave our way

to make the sun shine on us again.

Thanks for your visit!
Have a beautiful time!
