Hi MajaDesign followers!

June is here and it is time for a new challenge. Firstly, I would like to thank all you fans out there for the great respons to our latest line “Denim & Girls” ♥ It has been a real hit! And of course we had to make this month’s mood board all about girls in jeans…
Do you have a favourite pair yourself? How do you want them, loose, tight or maybe ripped..?

Make sure to not miss the lovely inspiration from our talented Creative Team down below. Take a special look at Kerstin’s layout. She’s treasured her favourite jeans by actually using bits and pieces of them in the layout (the were so worn out that they fell a part).  If you want that denim-feel but don’t want to cut your jeans apart you can always use the denim-looking sheets of the Denim & Friends collection, they do match the Denim & Girls line perfectly. If you do not have the Denim & Girls papers yet, it’s no problem! You can use any other MajaDesign paper as long as you follow the color scheme. And this is what you have to play with:

 

This is how we use the mood boards:
Definition mood board – n
[a board used by designers on which samples of various colours and textures are mounted to help in deciding which elements complement each other]

We truly believe in creativity and art at Maja Design and you are free to interpret the Mood board in any way you’d like. They are supposed to set you in an inspirational mood without too much controlling. We would like you to be inspired by the poems, words and photos. They are not given rules, they are just there as inspiration. However – we highly recommend you to follow the theme.. Feel free to use any Maja papers you’d like as long as they follow the colour scheme. You can use all of the colors, or only one of them – that’s up to you.

How to participate?

♥ Create anything you like – a layout, a card, something altered or maybe a canvas. Use MajaDesign papers primarily!

♥ Take a nice picture of it and send it to moodboard@majadesign.nu. Please send us the pictures in the size of 800 pixels on the width. We would be so grateful if you also could change the file name of the photo to your first and last name including your country.

♥ We also need to know your full name, address and a phone number. Please specify what collection* you would like to win, if you are the lucky one. We will also want to know if you would like it in the size 12*12 or 6*6, thank you.

♥ Feel free to send us more than one picture, from different angles or some close-ups – or why not more than one project?

♥ Publish the project/s on your blog (or/and any social media, e.g. Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest) with a link to our site. Please also add the image of the mood board.

♥ Feel free to combine your entry with other challenges.

♥ The winner will be revealed on the 28th, at the MajaDesign blog. The winner will be sent one collection by their choice*, and also a digital Winner’s Badge to use and brag with.

*Note that we have run out of a few sheets of som of our collections (e.g. the Sofiero collection) We will contact you if this applies to your chosen collection.

We need your entry by the 25th of June at the latest.

Hello and Happy Wednesday! Welcome to the Maja Design Blog! I hope this day finds you well and enjoying some cozy crafty time. It’s Nancy with you today.

I’m super excited for two reasons. The first is that I just received Maja Design’s brand new paper collection, Denim & Girls! From the moment I laid eyes upon it I knew it was an instant favorite, and I’m thrilled to be sharing a new card created from this beautiful collection.

The second reason I’m so excited is that I’m hosting a GIVEAWAY on my blog for the next two weeks! The winner will receive an entire collection of their choice of Maja Design papers!! You can find instructions for entering on my blog at mytatteredtreasures.blogspot.com.

This is actually going to be my granddaughter’s birthday card. In our family we have what we call ‘the circle of favorites’ which includes every one of us. When the grandchildren come to visit the first thing I hear as the door opens is, “your favorites are here!”, and I run to them with hugs and kisses saying, “my favorites are here!” Needless to say, the sentiment ‘favourite’ that I found in the paper collection is ideal for Savannah’s card.

The flowers are handcrafted using Monochromes Shades of Denim for a perfectly coordinated embellishment.

Below is a little peek at the inside of the card.

The tiny paper flowers are fussy cut from the collection. The finishing touch is a twine bow adding the frilly finish I love.

Maja Design Papers Used:  

Other Products Used: Natural Twine, Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Dies, Flower Shaping Kit, Flower Stamens,  Tim Holtz Distress Tool, Sewing Machine, Thread. 

Thank you so much for visiting the blog today! It’s such an honor to be here with you. I wish everyone a week filled with sunshine and happy moments! Don’t forget to stop by my blog to enter into the giveaway!

Hugs,

***** GIVEAWAY WINNER *****

Wauw, what a great giveaway 😍😍
I have the gentlemen denim line and used it often. I’am a great fan of Maja Design. Unfortunately is it not easy to buy in the region where I live.

What I would like to see is:
A line in vintage dogs and cats.
A new beach/maritime line.
Something with High Tea, because I love that theme and I prefer this one in vintage colours.
What I also like is something in 18 or 19 century, for example gardenparty or a visit at the beach.
With love Monica

I absolutely love “Denim and Girls”. All your designs are always gorgeous. The new orange colors are nice. Would love to see you do a theme of sunset orange, grey, dusty orange, and nice beige. Bet whatever you do will be stunning.

 

Congratulations to Monica and Tina!!! A little box of papers will soon turn up at your place 🙂

(please send your addresses to: marie@majadesign.nu, thank you)

Love,
