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.

Wish you a beautiful wintertime!

Goodmorning everyone,

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 sweet Maja fans,

I hope you and your loved ones are safe.

I hope you had a wonderful and happy Christmas , dispite  it was a little differend than normal.

This Is a repost  , It was on the blog earlier but , some how It dissapeared , so here it is again.

these are 3 gift wrappings I made for christmas presents , I can tell you now it was a great succes. the loved the wrapping as much as the in inside

 

This was an empty container from scent sticks that I altered with the Traditional Christmas Collection.

This is perfect gift wrapping for a small bottle of wine , a nice scarf, t”shirt or something like that.

 

The top of the lid. I made some flowers  using papertrey ink dies.

I hang a label pocket with some labels in it for a personal message.. I Looooove those little gnomes.

The pocket label is made with a die from gummiapan.

I have two gamer kids and the both asked game giftcards.. most boring gift to give , but the buy their games digital.

For my daughter I made this card because I bought her gamecard online ,and only got the code so (It’s non essential so not sold in a physical shop. )

I wrote that inside this card and put that in a gift envelope I made earlier.

For my son I made this gift card box. His card I bought just before the closed the non essential shops.

On top there is a little envelope with a little card in it saying happy gaming.

This is the inside of the box with the card.

I hope you like what I made for you and that I give you some last minute wrapping inspiration.

I wish you all Happy Holidays and see you next year.  Stay safe.

 Welcome Maja friends!

Have you seen the latest Maja Design collection by name ‘Traditional Christmas’ ?!

Great classical christmas colours, green and red, plaid, dotted … which gave me the idea to create a cheerful canvas as a kitchen picture.

We love baking cookies with the kids in the run-up to christmas.

It always takes a little longer and the kitchen is unrecognizable afterwards, but it’s always a lot of fun.

I used the paper sheets ‘Beautiful decorated’; ‘Peace and Joy’ and some papers

from the 6 x 6 suitable collection.

 

Beautifully decorated                   Peace and joy

Tips

 

the apron is simply indispensable when baking, so that the little ones don’t forget, I have designed a simple model

the paper sheet ‘Family gathering’ was perfect for this idea, with two ribbons

and a few punched out motifs you can create them very quickly and easily

+

some close up’s

the flour just sticks everywhere 😉

a flower cluster made with pointsettia cutting dies

Wish you a merry and relaxed christmas especially in these difficult times.

Make the best of it!

Many thanks!

The Unforgetable Moments of Childhood Magic

Goodmorning amazing Maja Design Fans,

I am so happy that you find the time to visit our blog today, here in The Netherlands they just decided to have a hard lockdown due covid-19, I personally think that it’s way to late but who am I right? Luckily in my line of work {optician} we can still be open and help the people who need to see but for my husband it’s a whole other story but he can still go to work but we don’t know for how long. Well enough of the covid-19…..today I’d like to show you another layout that I made with two gorgeous collections “Celebration”& “Nyhavn”

This was a fun and easy page to make also because I don’t have many pictures with snow in it….only when Kevin was a cute little boy. For the bottom part of my layout I used the Nyhavn sheet called sitting at the dock which is one of my all time favorites and for the upper part I used the ephemera sheet of Celebration. At that first sheet I used a awesome winter background stamp by studio light with some stazon jet black ink I stamped randomly, then for the upper part I used a stencil by the dusty attic of stars.

The frame around the picture is also by the dusty attic as is the word childhood. With this layout I will be entering two challenges one is a moodboard of winter and the other one is of childhood & to add some gold. The leaves you see on my layout are dies by cheery lynn designs which I cut out from the Maja Designs monochromes and then treated with lindy’s stamp gang sprays.

I added different golden elements on my layout as glitter glass, gold sprays & finnabair wax on the art pebbles as the finishing touch I added some true snow by arleene’s and some butterflies of the coffee in the arbour collection. I also added some flatbackpearls on the frame.

Maja Design papers used: Celebration Ephemera bs, Nyhavn sitting at the dock bs, Mono White Sand bs of the sofiero & Coffee in the Arbour butterflies are free.
