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

Although the pandemic caused closure of schools worldwide, it doesn’t mean studying stopped as well (but perhaps pupils aren’t so happy about it 😉 ). And of course it doesn’t mean teachers stopped working. Running online classes is no less demanding and many claim they spend even more time getting the lessons ready than at school. Most students in Poland won’t be returning to schools before the summer break, but they still want to express their gratitude towards their techaers who help them deal with this difficult situation we’re all in. And so I made two cards thay say “Thank you!”:

They are larger than my usual cards, measuring 15×20 cm (so twice the regular size), I guess these pupils are particularly grateful! 🙂 One is for the headmaster:

…and the other for a Polish language teacher:

The  card for the headmaster features the Little Street Cafe collection and a hand-coloured stamped images of an owl and some books that I also heat-embossed with gold ep. I added a flower cluster and die cut sentiment:

For the Polish language teacher card I used the Celebration collection. The focal point is a book I made from scraps of paper and decorated with flowers made from foamiran and an embossed chipboard sentiment. I also added a beautiful letter-patterned ribbon to look like a bookmark going across the card:

I hope the teachers would like the cards as much as I liked working on them!

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Lemonade, Agateria; dies: Leane Creatief, Nellie Snellen, Marianne Design; flowers: Prima, handmade; chipboard: Wycinanka.pl; embossing powder: Blue Fern Studios; enamel dots: DP Craft; border punch: EK Success; ribbon: Eight.pl.

That’s all for today, stay healthy at home, and see you soon!

Stay Healthy

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

We’ve been locked in our homes for more than a month now due to the deadly virus ravaging the world. Restrictions that it had imposed on us have been tedious and tiresome but I think we can still call ourselves lucky if our only worry is the inability to go shopping whenever we want. There are thousands more miserable, suffering and fighting for their lives, needing help and support. For all those who are sick I dedicate these get well soon cards:

For the “boy” card I used my favourite Denim&Friends collection, adding a hand-coloured stamped image and die-cut patches and a pill blister.

I used similar elements for the “girl” card, but arranged the design horizontally rather than vertically and used the Little Street Cafe collection 🙂

As you can see, I can make flowerless cards too! 😀

Having made the support-get-well-soon cards, I naturally thought of those who take care of so many sick people these days: doctors, nurses, paramedics – who often risk their own lives to save others. They always deserve respect and gratitude, but especially with this pandemic situation they are the world’s bravest heroes. And so I made a couple of thank you cards too:

I followed the collection and images pattern, but added some flowers this time 🙂

Here are the cards with some medical utensils instead of the images:

While making these cards I was thinking that even though we’re stuck at home we’re so lucky to be alive and healthy, I was thinking of thousands of people fighting for their lives and so many of them losing the battle, and of those who risk their lives to save others.  I do pray this pandemic ends soon and that everybody is safe – and free to go outside without fear – again!

Here’s my list of supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Marianne Design, Nellie’s Choice; stamps: Whiff of Joy, Lemonade; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; pearls: Basic Grey.

 

While we can’t do much to heal the sick ones, we can still do a lot to make everyone safer. So please stay at home, save lives 🙂

Good morning Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

In less than a fortnight Polish schoolchildren will be free from school until September 🙂 So it’s an intensive time of last chances to get better grades and thank your teachers. And so for today I have two simple thank you teacher cards to share:

Just as with the Denim&Friends collection, I wanted to check whether the feminine version, Denim&Girls, would make masculine projects too 😉 And so I used these papers to make a feminine and a masculine card. I used the same design for both cards, so only the paper patterns make a difference. The she-teacher card features a hint of pink and some flower patterns:

And the he-teacher version shows off some geometrical designs and darker colour palette:

And so again, it turns out you can use Maja Design papers for any project and theme, and you are not limited to its original theme 🙂

Here’s what I used for my cards:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: Spellbinders; stamp: Lemonade; brads: Craftmania; charms: my stash.

I hope the teachers who get the cards would feel appreciated! After all, they are like second parents to our kids 🙂

See you soon!

Thank you card

Hi there! Hope you all are fine! This time I wanted to make an Autumn card for you. I have coloured the lovely image from Stempelglede in warm colours with Distress ink, to match the lovely Maja papers.

I have put the sign up on a barbecue stick. It is stamped on a monochromes paper from Maja Design (Shades of Winterdays – Creme).

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and I have put som sisal grass behind them. I have also painted with White gesso on the flowers an papers.

Here are the papers used:

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

Say thank you with a flower card!
