Friday Focus on Maja Papers!


Hello! It's Nancy here, with a warm welcome to our Friday Focus at the Frilly and Funkie Blog. This week the spotlight is on one of my favorite products, Maja Design Papers! Linda stocks an amazing selection at the Funkie Junkie Boutique, and for the next two weeks she is generously offering an additional 15% off all of the Maja Design papers.


I'm in the process of creating cards for the many wonderful friends and family members who reached out to me during a recent difficult time. This coordinating set of 'thank you' cards turned out to be a perfect way to showcase a variety of Maja Design's gorgeous designs. 



Simplicity is the key with these cards, as the lovely papers stand alone with almost no need for embellishment. I cut, distressed, and stitched papers from Maja Design's Vintage Summer Basics and Vintage Spring Basics collections.   
  


I added bits of venise lace, two paper flowers, die cut leaves, a scattering of pearls, a twine bow, and a stamped sentiment. The interior of each card is finished with coordinating papers. The blank note card provides ample space for a personal note to each loved one.    
   

Notice how beautifully the papers work together! I'm a frilly girl, so I gravitate toward pastel themes, but Maja designs bolder patterns and color collections as well. 

Maja Design papers are designed and manufactured in Sweden, and they can be very difficult to find. Linda is one of the few shops in the United States to carry their papers. Her her prices are definitely the best, even when they're not on sale.   


It's been great fun sharing my Maja Design addiction with you! Remember to head over to Funkie Junkie Boutique and take advantage of the additional 15% off all Maja Design Papers these next two weeks.  

I send wishes for a joyful summer filled with plenty of crafty fun!

Hugs,
