Hello Sweet Majafans,
Lenet here and today I bring you something totally different .
Soon it will be Halloween , we don’t really celebrate this here in the Netherlands but it is done more and more every year.
Spooky parties , tours , decorating you see it more and more. but no trick or treat .
We have something simular in some parts on november the 11th called Sint Maarten. as soon as it gets dark children carrying lanterns the made at school ,
go singing from door to door collecting sweets. always very fun to see al those nice lanterns and hear them singing , especially the little children.
Unfortunately no Sint Maarten or Halloween this year due corona / covid.
But that didn’t keep me from making this Halloween card. Although Maja doesn’t have a specific Halloween collection, the purple from Enjoying the Outdoors and the orange-ish one from Little Street Cafe are perfect for this.
So with any further ado here is my Halloween card.
The witch is Wanda a stamp from Waltzingmouse the sentiment Happy Halloween is from the same set. The frame is made with the Ornate Frame sizzix die from Tim Holtz altertions.
The bats are made with dies from some dutch brand I don’t know.
I hope you like my Halloween card.
thank you for visiting , take care and stay safe
Hello creative friends!
Fall is knocking on your door, finally, you feel like saying, after months of heat and drought.
At the begin of October, the summer heat gradually gives way to cooler autumn time,
which cobers the landscape in spectacular wonderful colours.
Time to walk in the woods and rustle through the foliage.
I used a background paper ‘The great Nature’ from the collection Enjoying Outdoors’.
I love this nature feeeling with delicate leaves motifs, Simply adorable!!
Have you seen our amazing Moodboard this month?
I hope I could inspire you to create your very own autumn feelings project!
Thanks so much for your visit!
Pumpkin Patch Card
Hello. Jennifer Snyder here sharing a festive card that is perfect for autumn. This card features the warm papers from “Enjoying Outdoors” paper collection from Maja Design.
The beautiful purples, warm browns and soft greens in the collection made me think of outdoor festivals and pumpkin patches.
This card also was inspired by Maja design’s Mood Board for October:
The papers used from Maja’s Enjoying Outdoors collection are:
The Great Nature
What A Beautiful Day
I like the non-traditional autumn pumpkins.
The little pumpkins and green leaves are from Spellbinders.
Thanks for stopping here. Have a creative day.
Hello Maja Fans,
Fall is here. My favorite season, but I am still reviewing the memories of this summer. So here is my Layout that I made with the shot taken last days of August.
I like spending the time at our country side house . The flowers and plants there inspire me for a long dull winter days, so I decided to create stamped poppies and colored them with Copics
I mixed different collections there and focused mostly on the smooth colors of green , red and yellow.
I also made some die cutting using Maja papers to create the leaves for my stamped flowers.
It was easy to make choosing the olive and chest nut tones for the die cuts.
Hope my today\s post will warm you if the weather is rainy and foggy .

Hello Maja fans!
Today, I would like to share a new layout made for my September inspiration using papers from the gorgeous ”Enjoying Outdoors” collection. As usual, I’ve also used 49 and Market flowers, Dusty Attic chipboard and Finnabair moulds to embellish my page and achieve a romantic and elegant feeling.
As always, I found my photo on Pinterest and before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.
I used the back side of the ”Beautiful Trees” paper and made several layers with torn pieces of the ”Having Tea in the Sun” paper on the background. I also used the back side of the same paper to mat my photo. To start, I applied a coat of clear gesso and then, I created texture with the Finnabair White Gold icing paste and a stencil. When the paste dried, I used the Lindy’s Stamp Gang Edelweiss Moss Green and Greased Lightnin’ Green sprays to add color.
Next, I applied paper paste on the chipboards to make them textured and painted them with the Finnabair Golden Moss acrylic paint.
Then, I layered all the gorgeous elements around my photo and added in some 49 and Market flowers.
