Hello darlings!

Welcome to the Maja blog..! Today it’s time for a new mood board. ♥

MB-January17

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 January 30th.

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

Hi sweeties,

Thank you for coming by this Monday. So, it’s all of the sudden December and time for some Christmas preparations. Are you as surprised as me, and wonder what really happened with this past year..? 😉 It’s the same every year, I believe.
Now, I’m looking forward to a really amazing 2017. It will be a year filled with surprices and celebration (yeah, MajaDesign is turning 10 years next year!!) and a lot of wonderful inspiration on the blog of course. ♥
But, first, I want to present the new mood board challenge. I really hope to see many, beautiful creations this month. So, don’t forget to share this with all your friends..!

Hi Sweeties,

The Christmas season is approaching inch by inch, and I’m totally loving every second of it.
Here, in our part of Sweden, the snow has already come and gone – but we really hope to see some again, before the big day.. ♥ Don’t you just love to watch the pure happiness in the children’s faces when they’re outside playing in the snow? That’s pure happiness for me.

Christmas is all about joy, happiness and some magic, and I just have to say – that was just what I experienced when I received all these fabulous contributions from all of you. Just like a little Christmas eve, just for me.. 😉 Thank you all, so much, for your effort. We really appreciate it! ♥

Dear Maja fans,

Thanks for stopping by today. I guess you are curious of the new mood board.. This month we’ll go with the theme and colours from our latest collection “I Wish”. Haven’t you had the pleasure of playing with it yet? No worries, play along in this challenge, with your other Maja papers that match the colours, and hopefully you will win a whole collection of “I Wish” – or any other of your favorites.
