Hello MajaDesign fans! Welcome to the last mood board challenge of 2019!

This time it is a double one which mean you will have a little bit of extra time to be creative. We have made this mood board with the inspiration from the new collection “Holiday in the Alps” but if you have some other MajaDesign sheets you find will work it’s of course totaly fine to use them! We can’t wait to see some winterly, crispy creations for this one…

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?

♥ Create anything you like – a layout, a card, something altered or maybe a canvas. Use MajaDesign papers primarily!

♥ 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 some of our older collections (e.g. the Sofiero collection) We will contact you if this applies to your chosen collection.

We need your entry by the 23th of  December at the latest.

 

Here are some lovely inspiration from The Best Creative Team:

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

I’m sure you have already seen our latest release, the Holiday In The Alps collection! 18 gorgeously vintage patterns, introducing the winter season with Christmas images and scenes of winter holidays in the Alps, feature only 3 colours, but still give rich and varied background for you winter and Christmas projects. But not only! Just take a look at my today’s layout:

Not a sign of winter, Christmas or even sports 😀 I used theme-neutral patterns to create this fun boy page with photos of my godson.

I layered three papers, tow of them hand-torn to create uneven, distressed edges and on that background I placed my photos and decorated them with flowers and metal embellishments:

I die-cut the title word in glitter foam and placed it upon a chipboard heart:

As a finishing touch I added some buttons here and there and splashed the layout with white acrylic paint.

I really like the way it turned out, light and cheerful 🙂 What do you think?

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: die: My Favourite Things; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; metal embellishments: mitform; chipboard: scrap.com.pl

 

Are you going use this collection for Christmas/winter projects only, or do you tend to use themed collections for other occasions too?

Hugs!

Festive Vintage Christmas Shaker Card

Jennifer Snyder here  to share Maja Design’s newest collections; Holiday in the Alps and Shades of the Alps (coordinating Monochrome papers)
Just in time for the coming holiday season!  This is a rich and wonderful collection with gorgeous Christmas and winter images and patterns.  And true to Maja Design’s unique style, this collection can be used through the year because the B side of the papers are classic patterns.
Below is an image of the Holiday In the Alps and Monochrome -Shades of the Alps collections.  I used the “Santa Claus” . sheet from the collection – all shown below.
 I really hated to cut such a gorgeous sheet of paper, but the images are absolutely spectacular and needed to be used on a card for someone to enjoy.  I really had to fight off that desire to stash and hoard beautiful paper just to cut the paper.  The resulting card makes me even happier than keeping that sheet of paper forever with no one ever seeing it on a project.  Beautiful paper is meant to be used and shared.
 I paired the new collection with some other products.
The chipboard shaker and pine cone branches are from Creative Embellishments and the shaker mix is from Buttons Galore and More.

 

Thank you for stopping.
Holiday In the Alps and Monochrome -Shades of the Alps collections are shipping now to retailers all over the world.  For assistance with shopping, visit the Store Finder link, here .

Welcome dear creative friends!

Winter is just around the corner and although I haven’t been able to develop any winter feelings yet,

I was totally enthusiastic about the new ‘Holiday in the Alps’ collection.

I love the colour combination blue – brown – white,

 optimal for every vintage style but you can also create very natural winter landscapes with it.

 I chose a picture of our Sheltie during a beautiful forest walk last year.
