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.

 

Winter wishes

Good Morning Maja friends!

The time is right for a new winter inspiration. Actually snow should be here now and the frost pinch in the cheeks, but our winter weather is and remains dead loss. It’s grey and dreary, but the best time for crafting, or?! 

I love the timeless delicate colors and designs of this beautiful paper collection, always suitable to a lot of various themes. I used this striped design as background, colours reminds me on frosty days,

 on a walk through the snowy winter wood and all the secrets you can discover there.

Thanks for your visit today!

 Have a beautiful time!
