Baby it’s cold outside! 🙂 We’re just having the first snowfall this season and it really makes you think of Christmas – but before we get into the holiday mood, I have a card to share focusing on different matters:
When life gets busy and we hurry to take care of so many things daily, we often forget to also relax properly. This card is supposed to remind a certain very busy bee to spend more time resting and enjoying life. Shouldn’t we all? 🙂
I made the card using various bits of papers to create a cozy scene with some stamped motives. First I layered some papers to make the walls of the room and then added various stamped images.
I coloured the girl with Distress inks and used the paper piecing technique for the armchair: stamped the image twice, on cardstock and on the patterned paper, cut out the seat, layered the two pieces and then added some shadows to make the seat more dimensional-looking:
I like the way it turned out a little dimensional but still able to go into an envelope 🙂
And here’s the list of my supplies:
Maja Design papers:
Mono Celebration-Muted Fuchsia
Mono Celebration-Muted Fuchsia bs
Royal summer residence – bs
Other: stamps: Whiff of Joy, Inkadinkado; button: Prosvet; pearls: my stash.
And that is all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later!

Hello and welcome Maja Design friends.
Tina Ollett with you today to share my next project with you.
This has been titled “Happiness blooms from within……”
I have kept my project for today very simple and very shabby. I did lots of layering of the beautiful papers from may all time favourite collection Vintage Romance. The papers from this collection are listed below for you.
Walk with me – Vintage Romance
Walk with me bs – Vintage Romance
When I saw you bs – Vintage Romance
I have also added in a sheet of the gorgeous Lavendar Rose to compliment my layout from the Monochromes shades of Celebration. This was used to mat my photo and some of the other layers to help them pop a little. It is a very stunning colour.
Mono Celebration-Lavender Rose
I decided to go with a black and white photo to help keep the layout light. I also decided to use some cute paper clay moulds.
And as always with my layouts I have added layers of Dusty Attic chipboards to my layers of Maja Design papers. I have used Distress Inks to colour my chipboards along with splashes of gesso to lighten sections of the boards.
I have added in lots of beautiful 49andMarket flowers. These too have been added in layers amongst the papers and chipboards.
Here you can see all the layers of the torn Maja Design papers.
Here you can see I have added in lines of gorgeous lace. This has been cut to sit back to back and over the top of each other and also over the layers of my torn papers. I added in sections of white muslin that has been distressed.
Well that is all from me today. I do hope you have enjoyed my post today. Until next time take care and happy crafting.
Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today!
The wedding season is slowing down a bit, but still the wedding bells can be heard each Saturday 😉 And so it is reasonable to have a stock of wedding cards and gifts at hand. Therefore for my today’s post I decided to make a wedding exploding box for those who wish to complete their wishes with some cash too 🙂
I combined two collections in the box, and they are both perfect not only because of beautiful colours and elegant patterns, but also because of their names! Mix Vintage Romance with Celebration and you have a perfect wedding project.
I matched the flowers I used for the box with the printed ones of the Engagement sheet.
Inside the box are the usual slots for money – the sentiments say: for the crib, for the shared nest and for the journey of your dreams – as well as the space for writing in wishes:
The filigree chipboard cake I used perfectly matches the flourishes of the papers! I decorated it with mini flowers and satin ribbon:
And how do you give cash presents to the newlyweds? Just an envelope or something more elaborate?
Here’s what I used to make the exploding box romantic and flowery:
Maja Design papers:

And that is all for today, thank you for visiting the blog and feel welcome to drop by any time to find more inspiration 🙂
Hi everyone! Hope you are fine. Here I am back with a wedding card I have made. I have used the lovely papers from the Vintage Romance collection.
Under you can see that I have cut out several love letters from the paper named “Walk with me”.
The image from Magnolia is coloured with Distress Ink. And it looks so nice together with the romantic and lovely papers.
Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog!
