Cute Baby Card

Hello Maja Friends.

as you might know there is a  new collection that has been released long time ago in Vintage range, and this time it is Vintage Baby . I am so grateful to Marie that she created something Baby, as my new passion is to create something baby or for kids. Finally I feel  I’ve got the skills and energy to create for my kids their baby albums, so I am looking through the best photos and can’t wait to play with this new collection.

But today I’ve got only the card to share with you. I guess I need to take a rest from creating only the albums, as I am searching for the new ideas.

VintageBabyCard_ElenaOlinevich  Well, when I finished making this card it had only the papers and nothing more. and I really loved it ( I do love it now), but I thought that it was not me. so I wanted to add flowers or ribbon trim

img_9328So it took me a long time to find the place where it was is needed to be placed, as everything was completed already.

img_9330while there are the pictures, it is not easy to add many of the embellishments, especially when you have more than one image

img_9331But I need to say that the papers are so cute, that I wanted just adding more and more layers.

Products used: Vintage Baby – New Arrival, Die Cuts, 6*6 paper pad; Prima Marketing flower, crystal, trim.

On Your Wedding Day

Welcome, dear Maja Fans, to the blog today :)

With the beginning of spring usually the wedding season begins. The warmer it becomes, the more willing are people  to promise each other love and care till death do them part :) And so it is also a busy period for cardmakers – having a couple of cards in stock seems a good idea to me. Here are two shabby chic wedding cards I made using the Vintage Spring collection:

mdslp0One card is the DL size, as I wanted to include a chipboard quotation and a flower cluster:

mdslp2I chose the purple-green combo, perhaps not very popular for weddings, but it reminds me of blooming crocuses :) I also included a metal charm of two hearts intertwined like weddin rings:

mdslp3I partially inked the chipboard piece and covered it in glitter for a more glamorous look. The whole composition is mounted upon a piece of lace that looks like a bride’s veil:

mdslp4The other card is in purples too, but with a touch of pink this time.

mdslp5I combined two chipboard pieces – a cute image of the newlyweds on a tandem bike is placed inside a decorative frame.

mdslp6I added small pink and purple roses with glitter and a pearl brad upon a lace bow. It all gives the look of a light, cheerful ceremony in the shabby style. PErfect for a friend’s wedding!

mdslp7Supplies:

Maja Design papers: Vintage Spring Basics: 10th of March bs, 9th of April, 11th of April, 10th of April bs, 7th of May bs. Other: chipboard: Scrapiniec, Wycinanka; die: Magnolia, flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; charm, lace: from my stash.

 

Are you ready for the wedding season? :)

See you soon!

Happy Easter

Cathy - Happy Easter1 - Vintage Spring Basics

Hello Maja Design friends. It’s Cathy here on the blog. Today I am sharing an Easter project with you. As Easter is only a few days away, I was inspired to create a project that embraced the season. For both my card and basket I used papers from the Vintage Spring Basics Collection.

IMG_2098

I bought a chipboard basket from my local craft store and pulled it apart (the handle). Using scrap paper, I traced a template before transferring it onto the 12” Vintage Spring Basics 3rd of March paper. I had some button brads in my stash that coordinated perfectly with the papers which I used to reconnect the handle back onto the basket. I used a Prima white edger to ink the raw edges. This was so quick to alter and the end result is so cute!

Cathy - Happy Easter 3- Vintage Spring Basics

To create my card I used papers from the Vintage Spring Basics paper pad. I always pull out the possible papers that I might use and play around with them for a while until I find a combination that I like.

Cathy - Happy Easter 4- Vintage Spring Basics

My sentiment is the reverse label from 2nd of March paper…don’t throw away your scraps…they come in so handy!

Cathy - Happy Easter 6- Vintage Spring Basics

As you can see, I used a few dies here. I used a Spellbinders D-lites Filigree Egg die and Elegant Ovals with the centre removed to frame the egg. I backed the egg using a paisley paper from the paper pad to add another layer that was subtle enough to provide a contrast to the yellow paper. I framed the egg with various flowers from stash that I have had for quite a while. I had some daffodils which work perfectly with my sentiment. I die cut some leaves using Poppy Stamps Lorelai Leaf die and shaped them using a stylus and moulding pad from my Susan’s Garden Tool Kit.

Birthday card

My niece is celebrating her 10th birthday this weekend. A huge step for a little beautiful lady. I created this birthday card for her and I hope she will like it.josephineI have used a combination of Vintage Summer Basics, Vintage Autumn Basics and Ska Vi Ta En Fika for this card. The papers are so beautiful themselves so you really don’t need much to create an eyecatcher. josephine_detailThe die cuts have been created with Spellbinders Romantic Rose set and the butterfly with a die from Bo Bunny. Ribbon from Elena (thanks sweetie) and a LSS. I have always preferred to use Pearl Pens instead of Liquid Pearls since I find it easier to created pearls with them.

I hope you will enjoy your Easter weekend!

Early Christmas cards

Hello dear friends! Its Evgenia Petzer with you today. Every year I am sending lots of christmas cards. With the computers and emails we sent daily, there is really something special to receive the letter that you can open, touch and even smell… So again I have started the preparations for this christmas season early… yes, its eally early. But i have another reason… there are so many wonderful christmas papers and really something special in this season that I just cant help myself to stop playing with this theme.

So I pulled some of the papers and winter embellishmnets out and made three easy cards, that look like ensemble together.

I also love the look that this beautiful die cut from Memory Box gives. I specially picked the white cardstock to cut it with and it’s beautiful!march_petzer1 some close ups:march_petzer1_det2 march_petzer1-det1march_petzer2 really beautiful sparkly buttons are from my old stash, i just love that feeling hen I use something that I bought ages ago, is it just me?

and the last card for today’s post is this cute card. I must say that the sheet with those mittens ws one of my favourite of this collection, so cute!march_petzer3I love to use mica fragments on my winter projects, they help me to imitate the snow, sparkly effect…march_petxr3_det1 march_petzer3_det2For all these cards I have used this wonderful collection (Vintage Frost Basics):

I have used the paper pad from it as well as this sheet with die cuts.

Have a wonderful day:) and as a joke of our spring weather we have snow outside to match the theme of my post:)

Hugs, 

 

With a spring feeling – Easter cards

Two cards which I would like to present today are only made of paper scraps left from other projects. Isn’t that a great thing that Maja Design collections coordinate so well? The possibilities of mix-n-match are endless and nothing goes to waste :) Just add a few embellies and the card for any occassion is ready.DSC_0750 md DSC_0765 md

I used similar layout and materials for both cards, but I change the colour schemes and the card shapes. I just love the tiny flowers and butterflies which can be cut out from MD papers!
Supplies:
Vintage Spring Basics : 1st of  May, 3rd of May, 7th of May, 3rd of March, 10th of March
Coffee in the Harbour : Flourishing garden
Sofiero : Princess Margaretha Garden
From my stash : lace, mesh, flowers, rafia, leaves.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope your spring cards are coming out totally gorgeous!
