Today, I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Vintage Summer Basic collection. I chose a photo of the Daum Venus aux Tiroirs by Salvador Dali.
I stamped here and there with a grey ink before priming the background with clear gesso. I added also a very thin layer of white gesso to tone down the blue.
Next, I added a design with a stencil and Paper texture paste. While the paste was still wet, I sprinkle two embossing powders: one pearl, the other silver that I heat set.
Then, I added some colors: black ink, white ink, and steel mica to add some contrast.
While the inks were drying, I die cut some leaves in a watercolor paper. I colored with a blue ink and embossed the big ones. I covered the other ones with a silver foil. I colored some flowers in blue.
I cut some papers in the Home for Holidays collection to add under the photo. Before gluing all the embellishments, I stamped some text here and there with a black ink.
To finish the layout, I added silver microbeads and glitters.
Maja Design papers:
Hi everyone! Happy New Year! This is my first Maja card in 2018, and I am so thankfull to be in this wonderful team for one more year!
I have used papers from the gorgeous Home for the Holidays Collection. I will add the list at the end of this post.
I have used papers in blue, white and brown tones. They are so beautiful! The stamps used are from Magnolia, and are called Spellbound 17. I have coloured the image with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers.
Here I have made some post stamps of the “Love the snow” paper. The post mark stamp is from Stempelglede.
All the flowers, lace and flowerberries are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Here are the papers used:
Love the snow
Thank you so much visiting the Maja Blog!
Hello, The winter Season is right behind the corner, I feel. So it’s time to create the snow inspired cards
Though I don’t like the winter season at all, I like creating the cards this time of the year. I used the Home for The Holdays collection. It reminds me about the heavily snow times we have when I as a child. Now the climate has changed.
I’ve added the die cut ornaments and the chipboard frame
I also added the crochet snowflakes and it really came out cozy and warm

Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,
Today I’d like to share some projects I made with my lovely Maja Design papers all the flowers you will see on my projects are all hand made with dies. I love making winter projects although I dislike winter time here in The Netherlands the days are getting colder and the night longer. I love the getting cozy part but the rest not so much. My first project is a 8×8 layout made with different Maja Designs collections.
As I said I love playing with snow effects and I did that massively here on this layout…can you see which collections I have used here? Don’t you just love that picture? Although I dislike winter time I love snow and the peacefulness it brings….hope it will snow this year.
Now on to my cards……

Hello Maja Friends,
it’s only October on the calendar, however the time flies so fast and soon the most magic time will come. I mean Christmas time and I guess you know, it’s better to start earlier all the preparations.
So I decided to follow this , and created a set of Christmas cards
I used the past collection – Home for the Holidays, so classy and cozy
My main focus this time were the ornaments that I made using Spellbinders dies.
You can check my video tutorial that I filmed for you
Everything that glitters works great for Christmas projects, I guess it’s a good idea to mix silver and gold together too.
I chose plaid and tiny snowflakes backgrounds for my cards, I like the smooth and mute red and brown colors the paper has in this collection.
I hope you have liked my cards and the tips I shared in the video, and would be happy if you could use them for your Christmas cards.
