 Goodmorning Lovely Maja Design Fans,

Today I’d like to share another wintery layout with you all made with some beautiful Maja Design papers. All though I really dislike winter I do love making layouts like this, and I feel another one coming …. since we had some snow in the last 2 weeks {around 20 cm} I went outside with our little princess {and I took a whole bunch of pictures} I find that snow is very peaceful and you can hear yourself think that’s nice sometimes. But oh does it get messy when melting ughhh. It was a while since there was that much snow.

As you can see on my layout I did some handstitching which I find very therapeutic to do…I kept the colors very neutral and the layout is very clean & simple at least for me. On my background I added a crackle stamp and a crackle stencil. I also distressed the edges a lot on the the beautiful boards I just some sprays and snow but I gessod it first.

I am a hugh fan of of Renea’s Bouquets Moonstone Glass Beads so I added a couple randomly on my page can you spot them? For this layout I used a picture of my husband and son when he was little I could have used some newer pictures but this one is very precious to me. For this layout I used two pretty Maja Design collections “Home for the Holidays” & “Joyous Winterdays”

The frame was treated with gesso and then I added some snow and the amazing Gawdie Girl Diamond Fine German Glitter Glass on top of that snow. I aslo did the same with the snowflake beautiful boards. The butterflies I treated a little to with some spray & snow to make it a little less shiny what looked better on this particular layout. As I said before I really love how well the Maja Design papers combine together….love all my maja papers so much 🙂

Maja Design papers used: Joyous Winterdays: Glisten bs & Mr Snowman bs, Home for the Holidays: Together

Hello Maja Design Friends.   Jennifer Snyder here to share a snowy welcome to the Holidays.
I used a combination of Maja Design collections to make my holiday card vision be successful.
Here is the list of collections and papers used.  It really highlights how well Maja Design collections and coordinate and be used together.

 

 

I love making winter cards -and especially love Christmas cards with winter scenes.   The funny thing is I don’t like snow that much.  Sure I love it on a card but not on the ground.
The beautiful door die was made using Spellbinders Large Die of the Month for October, and is embellished with sequins and 3D Buttons from Buttons Galore.
The darling snowman was cut from Maja Design ‘s  Holiday in The Alps – Winter Ephemera.  The images on this sheet are fabulous.

 

The door on this card was designed to swing open.   When opened, you are joyfully greeted  by another sweet ephemera image from Maja Design – Joyous Winterdays – Ephemera.   The little boy is ready to toss a snowball .  So sweet.  
Happy Crafting.

Hello Sweet Majafans.

First I want to  wish you a very Happy New year. I hope all your wishes will come true.

For my first post this year I bring you a wintercard.

 

I used a piece of the Sparkle sheet from the Joyous Winterdays  on the top and used Monochromes-shades of the Alps -Snow

for a double mat.

I used it to make the snowflake as well . this one is made with the Snowflake rosette die from Tim Holtz, the beautiful ornament behind it

is made with a die from Marianne design Creatables .

The flower and ribbon are from my own stash . The Winter Wishes sentiment is a stamp from Waltzing Mouse.

 

Here A close up , as you can see I used a lot of glitterglue to get a sparkly snow effect. this is done using Nuvo Glitter Accents.

The little bling heart and  the flowercenter are also from Nuvo.

Thank you for visiting hope you like what I made for you .

Hi everyone! Here comes some Christmas inspiration from me. I have used some of the lovely papers called Joyous Winterdays. Just perfect for any Winter/Christmas card. We are already in November, so now is the time to start with your Christmas cards, if you haven’t already.

The image is coloured in blue and brown to match the papers. I use Distress Ink for my colouring.

I have cut out some leaves from the papers, and added Fran-tage onto them.

Under you can see the card together with some other card also using the Joyous Winterdays Collection.

Here it is laying on an old platter which I have inherited. All dies used and image is from Magnolia.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today! At the moment I am making some cards with the new collection Holidays in the Alps. Hopefully I will have one ready for you on my next post. Have a great weekend!

With love,

Merry Christmas

Hello Lenet here today and I bring you a…Christmascard.

I know a lot of you don’t want to think about any thing Christmassy right now but I’m in a Christmas mood all year long.

I’m a member of two facebook groups that have a Chrismascard challenge  , and for that I need to make two Christmas cards a month, I can share them but If I have the time I want to make  4 different ones . Two for each group. You can never have enough Christmascards

The Christmas collections of Maja are just to gorgeous for not using them , so I use them a lot. that means you will see more Christmas cards from me thru out the year.

This one is made with several leftovers from different Christmas collections. I just love to make bleu ones it gives that winter and snow feeling I love and always hope we have at that time.

 

Besides the papers I used spellbinder dies , summerfeelings doily die from studio light and the Tim Holtz mini snow flakes rosette die. I just love rosettes.

I hope you like the card I made for your inspiration hope to see you back next time and don’t forget to come back to see the amazing things the other Maja girls make for you
