Hi everyone! I hope you all have had a lovely weekend. I am back with another wedding creation using the wonderful new collection Miles Apart.

Here is the top of the explotion box, where I have cut out a wedding cake from the Miles Apart paper collection. The dies are from Magnolia.And the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have sewed all the paper around and inside the box. And painted with some white Gesso here and there. On the heart on the top I have added some Stickles.

The text is written on the computer and printed out.

Here is a close up on one of the sides. Look how nice the papers fits together.

The text on the large banner is from Stempelglede.

Let’s open the box to see what’s inside.

All the sides are measuring 10 x 10 cm. And I have decorating them all with more yummy Miles Apart papers.

And here’s the lovely couple, just like the one popping up on a wedding cake. I have painted a stamp from Magnolia with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers.

And here is the close up. I just love the way the Maja papers are matching with Distresses.

The roses are from Wild Orchid crafts.

This post is soon finished, but I just have to show you some close ups of the details inside the box.

Also the tags are cut out with Miles Apart papers.

With some romatic texts from Norsk Stempelblad.

Here I have added another pocket to put some tags inside. Here with texts from Norsk Stempelblad and Stempelglede (left).

I wsh you a lovely week to come!

With love,

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

I still can’t get over the Miles Apart collection! I hope you can’t either, as I bring you another card I made using that beautiful set:

I wanted this wedding card to be delicate, pastel and romantic, so I chose light papers in ivory and blush pink to make a background for a die-cut oval panel, upon which I placed a chipboard piece in the shape of newlyweds riding a bike. I think it’s a nice symbol of their future together, common  goals and direction 🙂

I covered the chipboard with subtle irridescent glitter to give it a more glamorous look. I also added a hand-cut stamp image from the Ephemera sheet, a “Postcard” stamped word and a couple of flowers. Opalescent sequins, ribbon with wedding rings pattern and tring complete the design.

The card turned out pleasantly dimensional…

…so I put it in a box decorated with metallic washi tape:

I love how the Miles Apart collection can be used for delicate, romantic projects 🙂 What do you think?

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: Chipboard: Wycinanka.pl; flowers: Prima; die: CreaLies; stamp: Tim Holtz; ribbon, sequins: my stash.

 

And that’s all for today, stay safe and well and visit us again soon for more inspiration!

Hi everyone! Today I want to show you the wedding card I made for an earlier pupil of mine’s wedding. So it was a bit special to be asked to make a card for her. Therefore I wanted to do something extra. So I made both a frame and a book, then put them together. And I had some perfect papers for it! Just love the new collection, Miles Apart.

All sides are decorated with the gorgeous papers. Inside and outside.

On the front you see the frame I made here. The size of the card measure 14 x 15 cm.

The butterflies are cut out from a Maja Design sheet. This from The Vintage Spring Basics Collection, and it is called 6th of May.

Let’s open the book!

The stamps outside are from Magnolia. Inside I have used stamps from Stempelglede.

Inside the pocket on the left there is a paper to write a greeting on.

Here are the papers used:

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

As you can easily tell by the titlte, I bring you a wedding card today that I made using the latest Maja release, the Miles Apart collection:

You most definitely know that Miles Apart papers feature some beautiful and romantic flower patterns that are just perfect for occasions like a wedding. But this time instead of putting those gorgeous flowers in the card background, I took inspiration from them and tried to recreate the bouquet ON the card. And so I chose delicate light papers for the background and added a flower cluster that imitates the patterned papers:

To the rose bouquet I added die-cut leaves, crystal gems and some chipboard ornaments. Vintage ribbon and enamel dots complete the design:

Just look how nicely dimensional it turned out!

…which means it needed a box too 🙂 I decorated it with washi tape with rose pattern – a perfect match!

What do you think? I must say I’m quite satisfied 🙂

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Magnolia; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon: Na Strychu; chipboard: Scrapiniec, Wycinanka.pl; gems: my stash.

See you soon!

Good morning Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

So the day has come: a new collection from Maja Design is being released right now! And I am absolutely smitten by this collection: it’s so classic Maja, but with a fresh air to it too, with stunning ephemera images and most beautiful soft colour palette. It’s as versatile as any Maja collection, even though it has a particular theme: missing some loved ones because we can’t see them as they are miles apart. I think it also fits well in the current times of the world pandemic, when many have to stay at homes due to lockdowns or quarantines. So these paper would be perfect for all those “thinking of you” and “miss you” cards or other projects, images of elderly people would be perfect for Grandparents’ Day projects. But the collection features some gorgeous flower designs as well, simply ideal for wedding or birthday cards and albums. And so today I bring you a wedding exploding box with my most favourite designs from the set 🙂

 

As usually, I decorated the box lid with a flower cluster, with wedding rings ribbon and some golden die-cut leaves. On the sides of the lids I used pieces of the signature strip – I just love those small patterns or sentiments ready to be used like this:

Then the outer walls feature the beautiful rose bouquets design, definitely my most favourite pattern!

Inside I put some money pockets and a tag for writing in wishes, and in the centre a filigree chipboard cake decorated with matching mini roses and a lace bow:

 

I really loved working with these papers and I’m sure you will too! What do you think of this collection?

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

 

Other: flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: Spellbinders, Magnolia; chipboard cake: Wycinanka.pl; sequins, ribbon, lace: my stash.

 

That’s all for today, I wish you a safe and happy summer time – see you soon!
