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

The summer this year spoils us – sometimes too much, really! – with hot weather. And it is also traditionally the most busy time of the year when weddings are concerned. And when you combine “hot summer” and “wedding” you can only get a tropical wedding card ūüėÄ

In Poland, when we describe a couple who is very much in love, we use a saying that can be translated as “inseparable parrots”. So it was a perfect motive for me to put on a wedding card! I cut out two birds from the “Major Mitchell” sheet and arranged a love scene, adding some more cut outs, a filigree chipboard heart and some dimensional flowers. To make the flower cluster look fuller, I stamped some leaves in the background paper to match the printed ones. I also stamped the sentiment “Forever” directly onto the paper. I finished the card with some vintage ribbon, string and acrylic gems.

The card is nicely dimensional too, due to mounting particular layers on foam dots of various heights.

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps, chipboard: Agateria; flowers, ribbon: Wild Orchid Crafts; acrylic gems, string: my stash.


That’s all for today, thank yopu for visiting and see you later!

Welcome Friends.  Jennifer Snyder here with some cards featuring the beautiful new Tropical Garden from Maja Design.  My theme today centers around the strong purple parrot image.

Here is an image of the collection.  What stunning colors and rich imagery.  I want to show that this collection is also great for strong cards as well Рmaybe for times when florals are not needed.

The papers used today are as follows: Purple Parrot, Big Leaves, Subtropical ( both A and B sides of the paper) as well as Monochrome sheets from the Shades of Tropical collection.

In addition to the gorgeous papers from the Tropical Gardens collection, I used dies and sentiment stamps from Spellbinders.


Thank you for stopping here today.  The new collection has sipped and is now available in your favorite on-line store.  The store finder link may help.

Happy crafting!

 Goodmorning lovely Maja Design friends,

How sweet of you to visit the blog today, here in The Netherlands it’s nice warm weather just as I like it the summer kicked in Oh Yeah!!!. Today I would like to share a layout that’s close to my heart. I made this layout with the newest Maja Design collection called “Tropical Garden” which has beautiful pale & soft tones in it. Why is this layout so special you may wonder well it’s because of the picture {you probably guessed that already} I made this picture without both knowing I did they had a special moment here and I captured it……

I took some of the pink & purple papers and the cut out sheet and I fussy cut the whole sheet. Then I wrinkled the pink paper and used a stencil by Finnabair on the purple sheet. I placed the pink sheet on the purple after I added some pink, purple & white Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays! Then the building a layout begins on the bottom of my picture I added some courd as I did on in the flower clusters too….I really like this part of making the layout. Some of the beautiful board I left just the way it is and on some I added paint & waxes.

Maja Design papers used: Tropical Garden: Soundscape-bs, Exotic Plants, Purple parrot-bs & Diecuts

Monochromes: Shades of Tropical РOrchid



Thank you so much for your visit today. And I sure hope that I have inspired you to take out your lovely Maja Design papers and create and have fun while doing so. Have a blessed & sunny weekend!

Hello Maja Friends,

this June was really hot and I even thought about the climate change, it seems we live in tropics. However here is my Layout I made with the new brand Tropical Garden Collection

I enjoyed fussy cutting process, and there is so much to cut out in this collection

the awesome parrots and tropical flowers

and the lilac tones, that I am so in love with. I was lucky to find the photo from our trip to Italy, in 2019. I so miss the travelling during this pandemic situation .

It was really a lovely day at the Lake Maggiore at Isola Bella.




Thank You Teacher Cards

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

Can you believe how fast time flies? We only began the school year yesterday and we’re saying goodbye to the classmates and teachers tomorrow! This was such a strange year both for students and teachers and parents! and I think all of them are happy to take two months of rest. But I also think it’s especially important to express thanks to those who took so much time and effort to keep teaching the kids at their homes and continue the educational progress despite the pandemic. And so it was with great pleasure that I made these cards:

I used the beautiful Tropical Garden collection to make the summer theme even more dominant ūüôā I added some typical “school” motives such as the stamped book piles and the metal owl charms and combined them with flower bouquets and chipboard keys (as we have a saying in Polish: “Study hard, child, because knowledge is the key to power”). There’s also some handwriting stencil pattern in the background.

I do hope that students, teachers and parents too will have the well-deserved rest during the summer!

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamp, stencil, chipboard: Agateria; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; die: Nellie’s Choice, charms: my stash.

That’s all for today, see you soon!
