Maja Design Project

~Beautiful Girl~

Hi everyone. I hope you are enjoying your week thus far. 
Things have been busier than usual around our household lately, with lots of new happenings on the horizon. I can't wait until things are a bit settled so that I can share all that has been going on with you. 

As you know, we have also been madly renovating for a while now, and the latest room to get a make-over is my old scrapbook room. Sadly, it will no longer be a crafty space, as it's destined for new adventures...As a result, all of my scrappy supplies have been boxed up (for the time being), aside from my lovely Maja papers and a few little bits that I've managed to keep in my crafty cart

It has been such a challenge not having all of my crafty bits within reach. You see, I am not a very decisive crafter, and it was very hard to decide what limited supplies to keep unpacked. So while it took some adjusting to, I am finding that having a limited supply of products to create with is actually helping speed up my creative process :) 

Anywho, this is why I have been so absent lately. It's not that I am not thinking of you all, and not that I don't want to desperately be creating and sharing, I just have to be patient while the next couple of months unfold, and do my best to share all of my Maja creations with you when I can.

Today's duo is precisely that. A little set consisting of a card and a mini envelope using items I had on hand, and some beautiful Maja Design products. I am so happy with these colors and how bright and lively they are. It's rare to see such vibrant colors for baby cards, so I toned them down a little by introducing soft pinks and lots of cream into the mix. 

To start, I used a WPlus9 Vintage Envelope Die to cut the little pocket. I used a pretty patterned paper, which I fussy cut, and added to the front of the envelope. Beside that, I added an old sticker that has been sitting in a pile of my Maja paper for a long, long time...

I had some PTI stamps in my little cart, so I decided to use them on this project as well. I stamped the little hearts and the "girl" sentiment to add to the sticker. I also happened to have some twine and pre-dyed crinkled ribbon, which matched perfectly, so I added them too. 

I decorated the back of the envelope as well, with all of the same elements. I just adore the phrase about little girls, don't you?

For this little card, I used the pretty Vintage Spring Basics collection (3rd of March) and Vintage Summer Basics collection (1912). 

I used a few more stickers, along with more crinkled ribbon, and a punched border at the bottom. 

I just adore how simple both of these cards are, and despite the bold colors, they both still look very soft and sweet. A perfect mixture of sugar and spice!

Wishing you all a sugary sweet day, 


p.s. This is what the new-and-improved spare room looks like now. 

Still a lot of furniture, but all the scrapbook bits (that covered every single inch of this space) are now gone. I desperately wish I had taken photos before we packed everything up, so that I could have shown you just how massively full this space used to be :)
