Hello dear Maja friends!

Fall is knocking on our door and this is the most beautiful time for us after this most dryness and heat to go into the forest and enjoy the nature.

I always like to remember our childhood

where we used to play in the woods and look for adventures.

I used some beautiful vintage papers from the ‘Vintage Summer Basic’ collection,

here you can find a lot of various paper sheets in delicate colours, always suitable for a memory layout.

some details

Have you seen our awesome September Moodboard?

These wonderful autumn colours don’t only fit into this season,

they can also inspire to create a vintage project.

Thanks for your visit!

 

Happy crafting!

Sweet Child O’Mine

Good morning, dear Maja Fans, welcome to the blog today 🙂

I’m sorry to dissapoint you if you expected some good ol’ rock now – even though I love that Guns’n’Roses’ classic, this post is going to be about a true sweet child of mine 😉

Going through some photos I took just two years ago I’ve been shocked to see how my eldest boy has changed! He’s no longer a sweet kiddo, and although he’s a sweet young man now I still miss that little boy of whom I thought “He’s so big now” while taking that photo… And to embrace the sweetness theme of the layout, I used the Denim&Girls collection to make this layout 🙂

I used scraps of various papers to mat the photo and to hand-cut some tags and banners to decorate it. I added flowers, acrylic gems, sequins and clay embellishments to complete my design. The title is composed of various golden foam letters – I used up some leftovers and added visual interest to the words as well 🙂

As you can see, you can make a boy page using pink papers of a girly collection too 😉 What do you think?

Here are my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: letters: American Crafts; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; button: Lemoncraft; sequins, gems, clay elements: my stash.

 

Thank you for visiting our blog today, make sure to come back for some more inspiration every day 🙂

Christmas in September

Jennifer Snyder here with Christmas in September.  I know summer has just faded and I promise I am not trying to rush the holidays.
I created a classic card that is simple but graceful – with a touch of rustic.
The collection used is an older collection,  Maja Design – I Wish Collection
and more specifically, I used the front and back of the same sheet, “I Wish Christmas Was Today”.
I really love the red plaid paper in this collection.  It’s rustic, vintage and totally gets me in the Christmas in September feeling.
I added a die with lightly inked edges and tied together with raffia for more old country feel.
Super easy.  Christmas cards do not need to be complex and complicated.  I find when I plan on making my holiday cards super complicated with a lot of embellishments, I never finish the cards.
The best card is the card that gets mailed.

 

Thanks for stopping.  Remember – it’s never too early to start those holiday cards!

Hi everyone! I am back with a tag this time, using the lovely collection Coffee in the Arbour.

Lots of pink to match the pattern papers. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the image and dies used are from Magnolia.

The image is coloured with Distress Ink, reinkers and Markers.

I have added some corrugated papers behind the image. And painted with white Gesso here and there.

A beautiful butterfly cut out twice to make the double wings.

Some tags where I have used Bazzill paper, and added a pink ring made of Maja papers.

 

The text is embossed with white embossing powder and a heat gun. All the paper edges are sewed with a sewing machine.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja design blog today. Have a wonderful September!

With love,

Hello MajaDesign followers!

And welcome back to our Mood board challenge. Summer is coming to an end and soon nature will take on it’s most lovely colour scheme. This season I’m looking forward to relaxing walks in the fresh air, thicker cozy clothes and long conversations with friends over a cup of freshley brewed coffee. I’ve put these autumn ambitions down in a Mood Board and now we would love to see how you intend to celebrate September.

This is how we use the mood boards:
Definition mood board – n
[a board used by designers on which samples of various colours and textures are mounted to help in deciding which elements complement each other]

We truly believe in creativity and art at Maja Design and you are free to interpret the Mood board in any way you’d like. They are supposed to set you in an inspirational mood without too much controlling. We would like you to be inspired by the poems, words and photos. They are not given rules, they are just there as inspiration. However – we highly recommend you to follow the theme.. Feel free to use any Maja papers you’d like as long as they follow the colour scheme. You can use all of the colors, or only one of them – that’s up to you.

How to participate?

♥ Take a nice picture of it and send it to moodboard@majadesign.nu. Please send us the pictures in the size of 800 pixels on the width. We would be so grateful if you also could change the file name of the photo to your first and last name including your country.

♥ We also need to know your full name, address and a phone number. Please specify what collection* you would like to win, if you are the lucky one. We will also want to know if you would like it in the size 12*12 or 6*6, thank you.

♥ Feel free to send us more than one picture, from different angles or some close-ups – or why not more than one project?

♥ Publish the project/s on your blog (or/and any social media, e.g. Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest) with a link to our site. Please also add the image of the mood board.

♥ Feel free to combine your entry with other challenges.

♥ The winner will be revealed on the 28th, at the MajaDesign blog. The winner will be sent one collection by their choice*, and also a digital Winner’s Badge to use and brag with.

*Note that we have run out of a few sheets of som of our collections (e.g. the Sofiero collection) We will contact you if this applies to your chosen collection.
