Hi & welcome to the blog today!

Here in the south of Sweden it’s starting to get chilly outside – so the quilted, warm jacket has been brought out from the wardrobe to help me keep warm these days. But I totally love it..! It’s time for coziness! The cold outside, the darkness – in a lovely contrast of the warmth inside, lighted candles and cozy blankets in the sofa. It sets me in the right, comfy mood and I’m starting to get prepared for Christmas and winter..! Have you started with your Christmas cards yet..?

Let us get inspired by a brand new mood board;

MB-November-17

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 November 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 November 23rd at the latest.

Thank you & Good luck!

And here comes some fantastic inspiration from our incredible team:

Dear Maja fans,

Today I got some heavy-hearted news for you. Our talented and beloved Rachelle needs to step down from the team, so today we would like to tribute her as the wonderful person she is, and, of course, her fantastic work during the past years she has been with us and enriched the Maja blog.

Rachelle Sigurdson

The queen of layering, with an incredible eye for amazing and exciting details. Every single of her creation is just stunning.
Let us enjoy some of the masterpieces she has inspired us with this years on the Maja Team…

Hi sweeties!

Today I have some wonderful news for you. We have a new team member in our Creative Team..! ♥
Let me proudly present – Kerstin-Inga Peters from Germany.

Kerstin-Inga-Peters

You might recognize her from her previous guest spot here on the blog, or from her participating in the mood board challenges – where she inspired us so much with these gorgeous pieces;

This is her own presentation of herself;

“My name is Kerstin -Inga Peters and I come from Germany.
I have been creating for many years now, always in search of new techniques and yet unexplored territory.
I’m a modern girl with a big vintage heart with a view to the small things, details and a big faible for 3D projects or elements.
I leave my comfort zone with passion, with all what I find interesting and exciting. You can find on my blog a lot of projects, from Altered Art for Home decoration till beautiful memories on layouts with our Sunshine Sheltie.
With Scrapbooking and Mixed Media Art I have found ‘my’ perfect favourite genres
– as it combines words and pictures, thoughts and feelings, and the application of various innovative techniques and the idea of telling stories.
My creations are always a little bit magical, romantic, sometimes funny, but always made with heart and mind. I’m in love with  the delicate shades of colours and motifs on the Maja papers, they are always perfectly harmonised and very suitable for a lot of project ideas.
I love to try out, products and ideas, share inspirations, photos and DIY – Tips for products, a perfect opportunity, because it’s always an adventure, a discovery tour, which I like to take my friends and all the other crafty people with me.
I’m looking forward to create with this wonderful papers and feel very honored to be a part of this amazing design team.”

 

A huge, warm welcome to you, Kerstin..! It will be a true pleasure having you on the team and to enjoy your fabulous creations..!
Don’t miss her first Maja blogpost on Saturday, November 11th. ♥
