Welcome dear Maja friends!
– Maja Design meets Tim Holtz –
I was inspired to create a Pop – Up season card in vintage style.
I love it to use the amazing cutting dies from Sizzix
with the very good qualitiy papers from Maja Design.
Always a perfect combination with Distress inks as well.
Tutorial Interactive card

I wish for frosty mornings

I wish you a beautiful advent season!
Good morning, Maja Fans, welcome to the blog today 🙂
I’m sure you have already seen our latest release, the Holiday In The Alps collection! 18 gorgeously vintage patterns, introducing the winter season with Christmas images and scenes of winter holidays in the Alps, feature only 3 colours, but still give rich and varied background for you winter and Christmas projects. But not only! Just take a look at my today’s layout:
Not a sign of winter, Christmas or even sports 😀 I used theme-neutral patterns to create this fun boy page with photos of my godson.
I layered three papers, tow of them hand-torn to create uneven, distressed edges and on that background I placed my photos and decorated them with flowers and metal embellishments:
I die-cut the title word in glitter foam and placed it upon a chipboard heart:
As a finishing touch I added some buttons here and there and splashed the layout with white acrylic paint.
I really like the way it turned out, light and cheerful 🙂 What do you think?
Here’s what I used:
Maja Design papers:
Shade of the Alps – Pine cone
Shade of the Alps – Frost-bs
Other: die: My Favourite Things; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; metal embellishments: mitform; chipboard: scrap.com.pl
Are you going use this collection for Christmas/winter projects only, or do you tend to use themed collections for other occasions too?
Welcome dear creative friends!
Winter is just around the corner and although I haven’t been able to develop any winter feelings yet,
I was totally enthusiastic about the new ‘Holiday in the Alps’ collection.
I love the colour combination blue – brown – white,
optimal for every vintage style but you can also create very natural winter landscapes with it.
I chose a picture of our Sheltie during a beautiful forest walk last year.
and here can you find our newest Winter / Christmas collection
Let inspire you and take a look, it’s worth it!!
Hello creative friends!
Fall is knocking on your door, finally, you feel like saying, after months of heat and drought.
At the begin of October, the summer heat gradually gives way to cooler autumn time,
which cobers the landscape in spectacular wonderful colours.
Time to walk in the woods and rustle through the foliage.
I used a background paper ‘The great Nature’ from the collection Enjoying Outdoors’.
I love this nature feeeling with delicate leaves motifs, Simply adorable!!
Have you seen our amazing Moodboard this month?
I hope I could inspire you to create your very own autumn feelings project!
Thanks so much for your visit!
