Dear Maja fans,

It’s time for a new collection, and this time we have decided to reprint an old favorite – Sofiero. This time with a completely new die cut sheet. In addition to this we have also released a completely new thing for Maja – Monochromes, coordinated single colored paper, this time perfectly matched to Sofiero’s colors.

Sofiero-L Mono-Sofiero-L

 

Our monochrome papers are printed single color papers with one shade on each side, one lighter and one darker. They have a white core which makes them exquisite to emboss, sand or tear for great effect on any craft project. They come in the same thick quality as all MajaDesign papers.

This collection is in the size 12×12 and consist of twelve different shades (two on each sheet), all a perfect match for the Sofiero collection.

You wanna try it out?? :-)
Please leave a comment below, like/follow us at this blog/Facebook/Instagram/Pinterest and share this post – and you have the chance to win BOTH these collections..!

We will reveal the lucky winner, here at the blog, on Monday the 6th of March.

Hello! I am Jaya Raghuvanshi from India, a dentist by profession and a truly creative person by heart. I am a mixed media style scrapbooker . I love playing with colours, textures & different mediums.Its been three years since I have been into Mixed Media.

Mixed media art gives me the freedom to go wrong, make mistakes, learn & create, which is why I am so hooked!!  Apart from paper crafts, I also love travelling & photography.

I would like to thank Maja Designs for having me here :)

The Vintage spring basics by Maja Designs is a really gorgeous line!  I love the muted look of some of these papers. For this page I decided to go ahead with the ‘2nd of April’ paper from the same collection. It’s really soft light yellow with a hint of script texture. I absolutely loved that the papers handle all sorts of media so well!

I just fell in love with the collection the moment i saw it. It has the most gorgeous papers and images. I loved fussy cutting a few to add on my page for some added interest. I decided to go with a monochrome look for this layout with a hint of gold.

Hello dear MajaDesign friends! February, the month of love, is here and it’s time for a new challenge.

MB-February17-2

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 are using mood boards for our challenges. We truly believe in creativity and art at Maja Design. You are free to interpret the mood boards 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.

We will pick a winner and present it here on the blog February 27th.

Have in mind that these challenges are a really great way for us to discover new talents and maybe some future Creative Team members…

How to participate?

♥ Create anything you’ll like – a layout, a card, something altered or maybe a canvas. Use Maja papers primarily! Take a nice picture of it and send it to moodboard@majadesign.nu. 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. 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.

♥ 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 the last Monday each month, at the Maja blog. The winner will be sent one collection by their choice, and also a digital Winner’s Badge to use and brag with.

We need your creation by February 23rd at the latest.

Thank you & Good luck!
