Maja Design Giveaway!

Hey there blog friends! I've got exciting news for you today, Maja Design is having a giveaway and I'm the first designer scheduled to do the gift giving! Once a month a designer will showcase a collection on their blog and all we ask is that you leave a comment on this post, become a follower of the Maja blog and this one + like us on Facebook or follow us by Twitter. It would really be swell if you gave us some of your feedback on the Maja papers as well! And this part is not required, but, it would be really nice if you would promote the giveaway on your own blogs and Facebook as well so we can spread the word. Here is a card that I made with the collection of the month, Vintage Frost Basics:


To make the frame on this card, I cut out two Labels Eighteen, one inside the other, out of a cereal box. I then painted it white, sprayed on some glue and glittered it up. When it was dry I added Liquid Pearls to the perimeter. The floral focal point consists of a glittered poinsettia, white seam binding, pearl stamens and tulle accents. The sentiment is from Verve's Holiday Greetings set and that is stamped on a Floral Oval and set atop a Whimsy Circle die.


I will use random.org to pick a winner on the 31st of this month. Good luck!

Stamps: Holiday Greetings (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Vintage Frost Basics collection (Maja Design), Crumb Cake, Natural White (SU!)
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories: Labels Eighteen & Floral Ovals Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Whimsy Circle die (Memory Box), cereal box, White Opal Liquid Pearls (Ranger), glitter, Silver Spica pen, white seam binding, flower, tulle accents, pearl stamens, dimensionals, paper distresser
Size: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Pin It

  32. Hi Andrea! This card is stunning. I love everything about it. I too have started cutting up cereal boxes to use in my card making and scrap booking. It's a free source of card board that can be turned into anything. Plus the way my family goes through cereal I will never run out. Thanks for the chance to win some beautiful papers.
