Hello Maja Design friends.  Jennifer Snyder here to share a Christmas card I made by combining two Maja Design holiday collections: Maja Design – A Gift For You and Maja Design – Vintage Winter .

I love that the collections can often be used together.  That’s part of the magic of Maja Design.  It’s  always fun when you can make the most of the products and paper you purchase.  That’s the added value of Maja Design collections.   While some of the papers in the Holiday/Christmas collections certainly have images that are “themed ” for the holidays, the B sides of the papers offer prints that can be used for any occasion.
 The papers I used are shown in the image above and are as follows:
My darling snowman die is from Memory Box dies.  I think it’s adorable.   Accented with some Flowers,  pine branches and he’s all set for the Holidays.
And one last close up from a different angle so you can see the dimension of my card.

Thank you for choosing  to spend your time at the Maja Design blog.  We treasure that.

I am so excited and happy to get to share something beautiful! My sweet daughter’s wedding!

We filled this room with Paper, Pearls, and Lace!

Who knew such a beautiful display could be made from paper….

Although, not just any paper could pull off such a gorgeous spread. It took around 200 sheets of beautiful Maja paper mixed with a few others to pull off this massive creation…. and about 4 months of my time. Yep, I made every single one of those layered pinwheel flowers. I must say, it was worth every single minute. Many, many thanks to Maja’s Marie and Camilla for sending such a generous box to make this project possible!

We carried the paper theme through out the entire reception,

which took place in a warehouse style, rustic, shabby art studio.

We filled the walls with large engagement photos and strung a handmade paper banner over the gift table…

The tables were embellished with gold candle sticks topped with handmade pearl balls,

fabric and paper flower balls, along with altered stacks of books and strings of pearls…

Lights with paper and fabric lanterns hung from the ceiling…

Hello dear friends! Its Evgenia Petzer with you today.

Yes, you read it write- some winter cards in the end of summer…

Sometimes it just itches for me to start creating something certain, this time I just needed to create some christmas cards. And The Vintage Winter is one of the oldest, but still my favourite winter Maja collections. So I pulled the paper pad from this collection and made two these cards just for fun.

vintage_winter_Card1_majadesign_petzer

Lots of layers n both of the cards, lots of little details, some stitching with contrast color cotton thread…

Though the second card is exactly from the same collection its in another color scheme

One of my favorite winter/christmas collections of all the times:

To create both of these cards I have used the paper pad of this collection.

Have a lovely sunny weekend,

Free Your Mind

Good morning, Maja friends, welcome to the blog today!

For this post I have made a layout inspired by one of the older CSI challenges – and it was mainly because of the colour palette I believe I’d never used before :)

mdfree

Intrigued by the combination of ecru, grey, dark rust and brown I thought it might make a nice boy layout. I used papers from two different collections and as always it turned out they work together pretty well :) I first stamped some newspaper print stamp on the Nyhavn background paper, and then layered pieces from the Vintage Winter collection:

I love adding some real vintage elements to my pages: here’s an old clock face:

Following the instructions for the challenge, I added the title behind bars 😉 I chose to use stickers to form a sentence: Free your mind.

mdfree3

For the journaling, I used two stamps to refer to the title and stamped them on scraps of papers:

mdfree5

And finally I added the flower cluster and a beautiful metal birdcage:

mdfree4

I really like the way this page turned out! And I like the dimension in it – though it makes it so difficult to store such layouts… But still, it’s worth the inconvenience 😉

mdfree6

I think I might never have used such a colour combo if not by inspiration, and that’s why I like to enter challenges sometimes – including Maja Design Moodboard Challenges! (btw, a new one has just started, see the post below and join in the fun!).

And here’s what I used for my layout:

Other: flowers, leaves, birdcage: Prima; stamps: Darkroom Door, Prima, Inkadinkado; washi tape, game spinner: Tim Holtz; stickers: October Afternoon; chipboard, metal branch, clock face: my stash.

 

See you later!

Hello Sweeties
Today, I’m up on Maja Design with a winter page.

Winter_PB(Photo de Richard Loader) 

I began to cover the background page with clear gesso. When dry, I did some random stamping and added black bister. To prevent the bister from reacting afterward, I sprayed a fixative on the whole page before continuing.

Winter_detail0_PB

I added more colors to the background with differents Twinkling H2Os. With a stencil and white crackle paste, I added also a design, which I covered with white Art Sugar while the paste was still wet.

Winter_detail1_PB

I colored the die-cut leaves and branches with Twinkling H2Os too.

Winter_detail2_PB

I distressed the papers under the photo and lightly inked the edges.

Winter_detail3_PB

I used 3D Matte Gel to glue all the elements to the background.
