Hello Sweet Maja Fans

It’s my turn again to give you a little inspiration. Today I bring you this Christmas card.

As christmas is getting closer I went to my christmascard stash and noticed I ned to make some more cards if I want to sent my loved ones a hand made card.

So this is one less to make.

For this card I used  papers from the Joyous Winterdays,  a beautiful collection in red, green and bleu….love it , the Monochromes -shades of winterdays.

for the centerpeice of the card I made a rosette using the large Tim Holtz rosette die,  the number 25 and rudolf ( who I gave a red nose with a little pearl )are made with movers and shakers dies from Tim Holtz as well.

The ribbons and the Merry Christmas are made with the cut off strips of the 12″x12″ papers.

I hope you enjoy this card I made for you.

Happy crafting  and don’t forget to check in tomorrow for new ispiration brought to you by one of the other Maja Girls.

 

A Very Merry Christmas!

Hello, and happy Monday! Welcome to the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy here, with my first Christmas card of the season to share with you. I can barely believe the festive season is almost upon us, as I still have a couple of Christmas items on my desk from last year that I’ve been meaning to put up-lol.

I’m working with Maja Design’s gorgeous ‘I wish’ collection today. It’s full of warmth and holiday cheer. Looking at the joyful images makes me feel like baking up a batch of holiday cookies while singing my favorite carols.

Several layers of distressed papers are stitched together, topped off with a die cut oval, then embellished with wintery florals and fussy cut images from the paper collection.

A dusting of snowy Gesso adds a wintery chill, and the final touch is, as always, a bow!

Below is a closer look at the hand cut images, which includes the sentiment.

There is plenty of space on the inside of the card to write a Christmas greeting.

Maja Design Papers Used: 

Other Products Used: Twine, Paper Flowers, Holiday Greenery, Jingle Bells, Gesso. 

Thank you so much for joining us on the blog today! I wish we could all sit down to a cup of tea and talk all things crafty. May your week be filled with love, happiness, and the joy of creativity!

Hugs,

Hi everyone! It is me again, with a new Maja Card! This time I have been inspired by Halloween. When I was a child we never celebrated Halloween, I am not sure if I had heart about it. But in the last years it has been really popular here in Norway too. We also had some “scary” children on out door Wednesday evening asking for Trick or Treat.

I thought the darkest papers from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection would fit nice for a card like this.

The image is from Magnolia, and is coloured with Distress Ink, re-fillers and Markers. The white flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have added some white Gesso and some frantage.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

With love,

Pumkins

Welcome friends!

Today is the day of the year where especially the children have a lot of fun.

  I’m not the greatest Halloween fan but I love the mystical, imaginative side of it.

  Dimly light, swathes of mist envelope the landscape, glowing pumpkins in warm colors and not very serious stories, but always associated with a lot of fun.

 It is also the main harvest time of pumpkins in my garden,

you can cook wonderful dishes and soups
made out of pumpkins or use them just for decoration or make a pumpkin cutting event
for family and friends.

 

 I used some papers from our wonderful autumn collections.

Paper sheet ‘ The colours of fall’ from the paper collection ‘Walking in the forest’ was perfect for me as background.

Beautiful green shades together with the delicate old trees were very suitable for my autumn mixed media layout.

 The background brings the warm colors of the pumpkins to light.

some details

 I love layouts with a natural look and so can also find

acorns, autumn leaves and branches (cutting dies).

 Maja Design papers

are very well suited for working with

cutting dies, because
 papers are very stable and bring along the appropriate color shades.

a beautiful man and you can do it yourself 🙂

 Exciting, what you can discover in autumn foliage

Thanks for your visit and Happy Halloween!

Hello Maja fans!

It’s Mary here today and I have a new layout to share made for my October inspiration. I have also prepared a VIDEO TUTORIAL so you can watch all the details.

 

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across with that amazing photo. I choose some papers from the gorgeous ”Enjoying Outdoors” collection that was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

For my background I used the back side of the ”Spending Time” paper. To start, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil.

Next I colored my page with some Lindy’s Gang sprays and made some stamping here and there.

The Dusty Attic chipboards I used were painted with several Finnabair acrylic paints.

When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and I made the final touch with some splatters with white gesso.

 

Paper used:

 

That’s all for today, my friends!

Thank you for stopping by!
