Goodmorning lovely Maja Friends,

Since December was such a roller coaster for my family I am so happy that January is upon us. A new start and some of my wishes will come true in 2018. Happy New Year everyone….I will be giving some workshops using Maja Design papers this year so that is awesome, for today I have a 12×12 layout to share with you all. For this layout I used the pretty “Joyous Winterdays” collection oh how I love that collection.

For this layout I also used some different flowers then I normally do the white ones are by 49 and Market and the other from a different brand. This layout consists out of three layers and I used the green and blue shades again I really love that color combination. to fill up my flower clusters I also added some pine cones and some die leaves.

Welcome!
Kerstin is back to share with you a new layout inspiration with a wintery feeling.

I used the paper collection ‘Joyous winterdays’ from Maja Design, because
I was inspired from the story of this wonderful paper sheet ‘Snowball fight’.

Have you seen this little boy at the lower right edge ? !
Yes it’s wintertime, the first snow is being celebrated immensely,

enjoying building a snowman, ice-skating or having a funny snowball fight.

Always a pleasure and not only for children 🙂

Card

Hello Maja Fans!

It’s Christmas eve my dear friends and I’ve already wrapped all of my presents. I’ve made several cards to accompany them and I though I should share one of them with you.

I choose to use the ”Playful” paper from the ”Joyous Winterdays” collection.

I made a few layers from the same paper using both sides of it to give dimension to my card.

Welcome Maja friends!

I love fireplaces especially on christmas time, it’s a wonderful tradition to hang up socks for every family member. Unfortunately I haven’t a fireplace and so I decided to make this in a small format.

I used papers from various christmas/ winter collections from Maja Design

Joyous-Winterdays-P

A-gift-for-you-P

Want to see how they are made? Here I have some photos from the making.

Steps and tips

As basic an old black wooden frame and the ‘Gnistra’ paper sheet as wonderful neutral background

added with some torned pieces from old music paper, inked with Distress walnut stain

the highlight was the fireplace.

I saw some months ago an idea on Pinterest where a simple plastic frame was used,

I was impressed and went in search for the right frame.

I found this in a One Euro Store, the frame was square

and so I just had to remove the bottom part

really simple, but a cool effect!
