Welcome creative friends!
Winter isn’t my favourite season, but this season also holds beautiful magical moments for us.
One of them is when there has been hoar frost, everything sparkles and glitters and the world is like enchanted.
I was inspired to create a layout in grey, purple and red shades, our latest paper collection ‘Winter is coming’
was absolutely perfect for these wintry hues.
I used a black-and-white photography, which really came into its own
with the Maja winter papers used.
The elegant lady besides makes us literally feel the icy temperatures.

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today! 🙂
I hope you had a great Christmas time spent joyfully (and safely) with your loved ones.
Today I’m bringing you a holiday album made for a couple who loves to travel. The idea was to combine Christmas papers with travel motives, as the album was meant for some most precious summer trips photos. And so I reached for Holiday in the Alps papers to make a small photo album:
On the front cover I placed a die-cut Christmas bauble decorated with various leaves, handmade foamiran poinsettias and printed ribbon. I also added a wind rose compass die cut from mirror gold cardstock. The wire is decorated with riboons and some little bells.
For the inside pages I used matting tags for photos that I decorated with little cluster ornaments and the travel motives are stamped in the background:
Here are some close-ups:
I hope the couple who received this album liked it – and that you like it too 🙂
This is the list of supplies I used:
Maja Design papers:
Shade of the Alps – Frost
Other: dies: Magnolia, Sizzix, Cheery Lynn Designs, Craft&You Design; stamps: Tim Holtz; bells: Dp Craft; sequins, ribbon: my stash.
As you can see, even using few supplies, with right papers you can create a nice little photo album 🙂 Try it!
Hello crafty friends. Jennifer Snyder here with love and virtual hugs for everyone. I think we all needed this new fresh start in the new year and I believe we all need to surround ourselves in crafty love if that helps to relieve stress.
Let Maja Design help with spreading the love through it’s amazing collections. I used the “Winter Is Coming” collection for this card as well as the perfectly coordinated companion solid collection, Monochrome Shades of Winter.
The individual papers used from these collections are “A good book” and “Dusty Wine” from the solid collection. While the collection may have a winter name, the collection can be used all year round. Can you tell from looking at my images this is a winter collection? No way.
The dies used on this card are from Spellbinders Monthly die club and Spellbinders Birthday Sentiments die set. They look marvelous showcasing the Maja Design papers.
Happy 2021 everyone. We wish you the very best that 2021 and Maja Design have to offer AND MORE.
Happy New Year everyone I hope this year will be much better for everyone then 2020 was……Today I’d like to show you my latest layout. For this layout I combined two collections “Miles Apart”& “I Wish” I really like how well all collections of Maja Design go together…now pink/cherise/peachy & brown always look awesome don’t you think?? I off course used a picture of Abbey the first time next to a Christmas tree a nice memory for her.
I made a layout with lots of layers which I really like to do it gives your work more demension. The brown sheet of the I Wish collection I used for my base underneath that sheet I used the ‘a few words’ sheet of the Miles Apart collection. On the background I used the distressed script stamp by Creative Embellishments with some clear embossing ink and some purely white embossing powder By Lindy’s Stamp Gang.
Then I distressed like a crazy woman ohhhh did I went nuts sometimes you need it to get your shit together. Then I placed the slightly smaller sheet on top of my background with underneath the same sheet as I did behind the brown one. Then I used about four different Lindy’s sprays to compliment my background.
Then I placed the flowers around like I wanted them just like I did with the picture….you see some handmade leaves too in my flower clusters those are made with Cheery Lynn Designs dies and sprayed with lindy’s sprays gold & green. The I added some metal stars & some chipboard Gears by Creative Embellishments.
Maja Design Paper used: Miles Apart: a few words & keep in touch and I Wish: those memories will last.
Thank you so much for being here with us today I hope I have inspired you… and we would love it if you share your work with us at the Maja Design Facebookpage …..stay safe & healthy…… Love
Hello Maja Friends,
I guess that 2020 for many people was not the best one and few hours left and it will pass away.
I do believe that the upcoming 2021 will be much better and I’ve got 2 cards to share with you today, that I made with the brand new Winter is Coming collection that is so very awesome.
I am in love with the colors and the images this collection has, so very feminine.
I made some fussy cutting and played with paper layers too.
The vintage looks is so smooth that it makes me feel that it is not cold outside, though it isn’t .
So if you want to impress some of your friends, so these papers are the best choice, though they are not only for winter projects, you may use it all year round.
I also have one more card that I made recently and I can not but show it too.
I played almost with the same papers and images, and those ladies are really fabulous, don’t you agree with me?
I used 6×6 paper pad , so it has the perfect images size for the cards.
Wishing you all the best in 2021 , keep safe and keep on crafting.
