Hi everyone! Here I am with a heart shaped Christmas card using gorgeous papers from the collection called Vintage Frost Basics.
I have cut out all the dies from the pattern papers. Here you can see tones, music stand and postmarks. I have coloured the Magnolia image to match with the papers in blue and brown.
For the postmarks I have used the sheet called 2nd of December.
And here is the music stand. I have added a little angel above.
I really enjoyed making this card, using some of my favourite colours, and adding the notes around the singing image. The image is coloured using Distress inks for my painting. I have also added some Fran-tage around the image, so it looks like the snow which is falling down. So I wish for a white Christmas.
Have you seen the new collection from MajaDesign? It is called Little street Cafe.
I have made some products with these papers lately, and here is my first. A birthday tag.
I love the fun colours, they just make me smile, like this image here.
Here I have used: Tea please, Something sweet and Delisious.
Thank you so much for visting the MajaDesign blog!
Hello and welcome back Maja friends. Today I am here to share my monthly project with Maja Designs papers. And I really couldn’t resist using this months moodboard, as these are my favourite colours! Thank you Marie for the fabulous inspiration. Have you seen the moodboard yet? Well if not I have added it below for you.
There is still over a week left to enter the challenge if you wish to do so. The monthly winner wins a collection of Maja Designs of their own choice.
And this is my interpretation of the moodboard for September. This is “Memories”.
For my project I have combined two collections to allow for the moodboard. I have used the gorgeous polkadots from Denim and Girls with a sheet of the monochromes in sage and a sheet of 22th of December from the Vintage Frost. All three of these papers were used to create layers in the background of my photo. I love to do this so the interest is bought back to my photo. This photo is from a series of photos that I took a couple of years back. I do love these photos of my girls just caught up in a moment hanging together.
Easy Going – Denim and Girls
Monochrome Denim – Light Sage
22th of December bs
With keeping in line of the colours of the moodboard I have used some handmade moulds and coloured them in a rust and then some acrylic greens to compliment the papers. I have also used some cream flowers from 49andMarket to bring out the polkadots in the background. I added in a distressed doily and also some hand dyed ribbons to compliment the page.
Above you can see the addition of chicken wire. And no this is real. I was lucky enough to come across some miniature chicken wire. I have rusted these pieces which really brings up the added textures in the wires. I have also added in some highlights of bisque to add some of the orange shades from the moodboard. These are only very light but I feel made all the difference to the colours.
And from another angle you can see all the additional flowers in their layers added to the moulds.
Well I hope you have enjoyed my moodboard inspiration today. Please stay tuned for more gorgeous work from our Design Team.

Hello Sweet Maja fans.
When summer is at it’s end I always get Christmas jitters.
Although every season and holiday has it’s own charm, I really love Christmas.
Me and my kids love to snuggle up with a warm blanket on the couch, and watch every Christmas-movie we can find.
With Christmas jitters comes Christmas crafting. So today I bring you this Christmas tag made with leftovers from the Vintage Frost Basic Collection.
I hate throwing away designpapers I love , so i safe them for smaller projects like this.
For the bottom of the base tag I used the Martha Stewart doily punch. one of my all time favorite edgepunches.
On top of that I laid a die cut made with Romantic Rectangles nestabilities by Spellbinders.
Than I started stacking papers till I like it and stick them together with foamtape.
I always keep some space between the edges of my papers so I can tuck some embellishments or or small papers between the layers.
To finish it an eyelet in the top with a piece o flace thru it so it can hang .
This label will sure be a part of my Christmas decorations. I love how it turned out.
The Snow flake die I used is from the winter trails collection by Studio Light.
Thank you very much for visiting make sure you come back for more wonderful projects made by the other Maja girls to inspire you.
Hello again dear Maja fans.
We still have a amazing summer over here in the Netherlands with lots of sun and warm temperatures. They are even talking about a heatwave next week.
So in order to cool down a little , I made this Christmas card , you never start too early making them right? Maybe this year I will be done in time instead of making them at the last minute.
This one I made with some leftovers from projects I made earlier with the Vintage Frost Collection.
To create snow the snow on the edges I used Finnabair art extravagance paper texture paste.
To create dimension on the card I used foamtape to stick the pieces together.
Thank you very much for your visit, I hope I was able to give you some inspiration with this card.
