Welcome creative friends!


Winter isn’t my favourite season, but this season also holds beautiful magical moments for us.

One of them is when there has been hoar frost, everything sparkles and glitters and the world is like enchanted.


I was inspired to create a layout in grey, purple and red shades, our latest paper collection ‘Winter is coming’

was absolutely perfect for these wintry hues.

I used a black-and-white photography, which really came into its own

with the Maja winter papers used.

The elegant lady besides makes us literally feel the icy temperatures.



some close up’s




 used Maja Design papers


12×12 and 6×6 paper pad

other materials: cutting dies, stencils, chipboard, Snow paste, Deco Snow


I hope I could inspire you to try your own idea in a original project !

Wish you a beautiful wintertime!

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.


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. ♥
