Hello, dear Maja friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

The weather this winter is very weird, no snow or frost, just dull rainy days. It might make you pretty discouraged, and I think there’s no better way to overcome blue feelings than the colour therapy 🙂 And Maja Design’s latest collection, Little Street Cafe, is just perfect for the task, with those juicy purples, yellows and oranges! Today I have a very colourful wedding exploding box to share using these optimistic papers:

I think the flowery pattern of the Always Time sheet is so beautiful! I covered the outside walls of the box with panels of it paired with plaids of the Coffee Al Fresco and Delicious papers:

I tried to mimick the flower bouquet of the paper on the lid of the box:

Inside walls are covered with charming polka dots pattern and tiny flowers:

As exploding boxes often serve as practical (and beautiful at the same time 😉 ) means of giving money to the newlyweds, so I usually put pockets on the walls and suggest some goals, like “for a dream journey”, “for a baby crib”, “for the home”, etc.

There’s also a small panel for writing in wishes:

And as usually, there’s a chipboard “cake” in the centre of the box, this time with a couple as the topper:

I like how the colours of this collection complement one another to make a juicy optimistic combo. I think this exploding box would be perfect for a boho-style wedding. What do you think?

Here’s what I used:

Other: dies: Spellbinders; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; cake: Wycinanka.pl; bling: my stash.

Wedding In The Alps

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

With November ending, the holiday season is really close and I’m very happy about it, but while it’s still autumn, I wanted to make some non-winter and non-Christmas projects 🙂 However, that doesn’t mean I won’t be using wintery papers! Especially when the latest release, Holiday In The Alps, is so beautiful! And like all Maja collections, it’s versatile enough to be used for other themes than winter and Christmas.

And so I made a… wedding card 🙂

For my card I chose the sand and burgundy colours to make it festively rich. I layered Monochrome sheets beneath the beautiful damask of the top paper. I distressed all the edges for more texture. I also added a vintage label with metallic foil:

Upon such background I placed a layered die-cut wreatch of leaves and filled the centre with sand and burgundy flowers, completed with paper foil straws, vintage ribbon and acrylic crystals:

I also added a chipboard sentiment in the lower corner of the card and covered it with glitter to match the glamour style of the card:

I think the card turned out really nice, the rich damask background and shiny features of foiled and glitter elements. I also like the dimension, of course 🙂

What do you think?

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers, vintage ribbon: Wild Orchid Crafts; die: Joy!Crafts; straws, vintage label, crystals: my stash.

 

This is my last autumn post, so for the next one I promise to make something more wintery 🙂

See you soon!

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

Summer has traditionally been a wedding season and so wedding cards have been in great demand too.  I like to keep a small stash of cards just in case, and therefore today I’m sharing two cards that differ by the colour only:

I kept the design pretty simple, so it would be easy to recreate the card in any colour – I used neutral sand as the background for the stencil heart shape filled with flowers:

I also included a layer of patterned paper, choosing the Comfy sheet from the Denim&Girls collection, as it perfectly corresponds to the leafy heart motif:

I completed the design with acrylic opalescent hearts some cheesecloth and an embossed chipboard sentiment:

The same is true for the other card in the turqouise palette:

In the Denim&Friends collection you will find the Jeans&T-shirt paper that has the same leafy pattern but in turqouise 😉

And I really like the dimension the flowers give:

I like the way they turned out: simple, yet elegant and delicate. What do you think?

Here’s what I used:

Other: stencil: Agateria; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard: Scrapiniec; acrylic hearts, string, cheesecloth: my stash.

 

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

Hello Maja Design Friends.

The new brand collection Denim & Friends has been announced recently, and though I see it’s Boho style , I decided to create something absolutely different.

I’ve made Wedding Cards and the love the delicacy the papers have.

The floral prints, stripes and lace patterns are perfect for mixing. I made some fussy cutting as well, the roses are so lovely.

To create the scene on my cards I used the dies, classy and Summer – associated. And to make the grape leaves I used Monochrome Shades papers from Celebration Collection.

The cards are lovely and full of tiny numerous details , though they look quite simple.

I didn’t add many flowers since the papers are perfect with no extra embellishments.

Products used:

Spellbinders Dies and Prima Marketing Flowers.

Hello, our blog fans. Today I created the card in the box. It was an individual order and the most important thing was to use the Peacock motif.  I matched digital graphic and then found the paper. I mixed different collection – the most important was to find the best shades of blue paper.

To create the background I used a paper sheet from Monochromes Collection.  Modeling paste was applied by the mask and then I just compose the rest.

    I’m really happy about the final result. Hope you will like it to. Hugs, Paulina
