Hello Maja Friends,

it’s snowing and chilling outside, and I feel that I miss Summertime already

So that is why I chose Summertime collection for my post today

I like doing fussy cutting for my cards, so I kept on doing this time too. The roses and the florals are really delicate and so beautiful

I’ve added some flower embellishments too

But made all the cards different

For my second card I made die cutting and used the cardstock from  Monochromes Shades of Denim

They match each other perfectly

I kept the blue color palette as primary color but added the coral shades too

Also I made stamping on the vellum and heat embossed the frames, that I cut out after.

Products used:

Summertime  and Monochromes Shades of Denim collections:

Spellbinders Die – Time Flies , Frames and Ovals, Prima Marketing Flowers, 2Crafty Chipboard.
The Ton Frame Stamps

August Heat

Hello Maja Friends,

August – my favorite Summer month, though it is the last before the dull and rainy days come. However I like it more than any month.
So that is why I enjoy looking through the pictures taken this summer and to create something that is associated with this particular month.

I combined several Summer collections for my Layout – Summertime, Summer Crush and Life in the Country.

I tried to keep the red and greens on my layout, using the paper layers, and added some embellishments of yellow and orange.

I also stretched the colors from the photo – soft blue and pumpkin and played with the acrylic paints .

I added some fussy cutting, though I mixed the greens and reds from almost the same patterned papers.

So it’s time to enjoy each and every day this Summer, hope you will follow my advice.

Products used:

Prima Marketing flowers, 2Crafty chipboard, Wycinanka Chipboard, Pentart acrylic Paints.

Friends.

Hello sweet Maja fans.

Lenet here and I bring you this card.

 

Today is the official first day of the summer , and so I decided to use the summertime collection to create this card with.

I love making cards with an extra twist ,so made this what shall I call it dangle card?

When you open the card you find a dangle of roses , I cut out of a sheet of Smell the roses.

 

 

I used the two bikes because well ,we dutch are not only known for the mills , tulips and wooden shoes ,  but we are also known for our many bikes.

I love to ride my bike and use it daily for fun but also for running errands .

And saying that I’m going to hop on my bike to bring this card to the post office than  it can be sent to my friend  so she”ll how much you appreciate her.

thank you very much for visiting our blog and hope you get some inspiration by this card.

Hello everyone!

Although it’s still spring, we are already having summer temperatures here

first strawberries in our garden are ripe.

It’s the most wonderful time in the garden, everything blooms and fragrance.

Do you know the wonderful sheet ‘Is always the best’ from the Summertime Collection?

Is one of my favourites, this paper is so beautiful, that you could put it in a picture frame right away to hang it on the wall.

I’m absolutely in love with the delicate designs of the papers,

because the motifs and colours reminds me on roses, strawberries, hikes across field and hallway, bicycle tours and much more.

some close up’s

 

Thanks for your visit!

Have a wonderful time!

Kerstin

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

Have you seen our May Moodboard? The palette is so beautiful that after creating my sample card I just couldn’t help making another 😉 And here’s my wedding card:

I used papers from the Summertime collection – this rose bouquets one is one of my most favourite Maja papers! Isn’t it just gorgeous? I chose it for my background and matted it with two other collection papers and arranged a scene of two birds nesting – to symbolise a new couple building their home together 🙂

Inspired by the roses in the bacgkround, I added a flower cluster around the chipboard sign:

I tied a guipure lace bow to add some lightness to my bouquet:

The card turned out pretty dimensional – and I love that!

Of course bulky cards need a box, and I decorated one with hot embossing on the top:

 

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: chipboard: Scrapiniec; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; glitter: Ranger; art clay molds: Prosvet; art clay: Martha Stewart; lace: my stash.

 

I hope you will join us for the Moodboard challenge and share your projects using this gorgeous palette 🙂

See you!
