Hello, dear Maja Design Fans!
Welcome to the blog today, it’s Maja here to share some inspiration.
Last Thursday my elder son finished his third grade. In Poland it means the end of the first stage of education, now he is going to have new subjects and new teachers. His main teacher will no longer teach him – and that was a very sad goodbye. She was a true teacher with passion, all kids loved her. She is also a very crafty lady and taught kids many crafty techniques, and so we decided to give her a handmade thank you album, in which all kids would place their handmade cards with thanks. The task of gathering and binding all cards together fell to me. And this is what I came up with:
I wrapped all the edges of the cover with washi tape and then covered the cardboard with Vintage Summer Basics papers. I placed some beautiful chipboard frame and flower composition, with leaves I die cut from a Coffee in the Arbour sheet:
As there are 16 children in Kuba’s class, I decided to use some neutral cream paper and add some Maja Design papers stripes and washi tape to decorate each page. For the girls’ pages I used strips of my most favourite Coffee in the Arbour paper – Rose Garden:
Maja Design papers: Vintage Summer Basics: 1932, 1924; Vintage Frost Basics: Days of December bs; Coffee in the Arbour: Rose Garden, Raspberry lemonade bs.
Other: chipboard, album base – Scrapiniec; metal corners: Tim Holtz; stamps: Making Memories; flowers, lace – from my stash.
Kuba’s card: Coffee in the Arbour: Raspberry cupcake bs, Raspberry jam cookies, Blueberry cupcake, Blueberry cupcake bs.
Other: die: Prima, stamp Lemonade.
I have also a card to share. In the middle of the wedding season, I like to have one or two cards at hand, and so when I finished the thank you album, I used some Coffee in the Arbour papers to make this card:
Coffee in the Arbour: Grandma’s old porcelain, Feel the grass between your toes, Raspberry lemonade.
Other: chipboard: Scrapiniec, glitter: Stickles Ranger, flowers, ribbon – from my stash.
That’s all for today, thank you for visiting the blog and don’t forget to pop in tomorrow 🙂
