3 December, 2013 - , ,

Are you up for some winter fun?

This years last challange is a frosty Mood board, and we would love to see all kinds of winterly projects. Choose one, two or maybe all the colours from the board. Get some ideas from the inspirational words, or why not use the lines from the song… See the Team’s wonderful artwork and start to create!
Make sure to not miss the announcement of the winners further down. You melted our hearts with all the kind words, and we got a bit generous…


And here’s a little reminder of what our mood boards are used for…

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 truely 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. They are all inspired by a Maja collection, but you are free to use any Maja papers you’d like as long as they follow the colour scheme. We highly encourage you to follow the theme of the mood board as well.

We are presenting a new mood board the first Tuesday of every month. We will be presenting all participating creations that fulfill the requirements below December 31st. We will also draw a winner who will be winning a Maja Design collection of their own choice in 6×6 or 12×12.

After your creation is done, take a photo and send it to without any watermarks (size 600×600). Include your full name and address in the e-mail together with what collection you would like if you win. Don’t forget to write down if you would like 6×6 or 12×12. We need your creation December 29th at the latest.

We will only publish creations that fullfill the requirements!

And here comes inspiration created by our fabulous Creative Team…

Thank you for all the lovely contributions! You’ve really created some Christmas feeling.

A reminder of what you got to work with:

And the lucky Winner is…


Katie Kempton from Canada!
Congratulations! We will send you the Vintage Frost Basics collection as you requested.



First I have to send a huge THANK YOU to all of you, for all the lovely comments and kind words. It’s you who makes me wanna go on designing papers.
We well passed 200 comments!! And I’m going to ship the collection to six lucky winners:

 Mixable collections are just perfect! Double-sided I suppose,  so not 24, but 48 different designs to choose from! It gets even better: perfectly compatible with the other 3 Vintage Basics collections. What more could a girl want (expect for winning it, LOL)? Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to win (and drool all over it on beforehand)!

Fantastic!! Love that the collections always have a great mix of both blues/greens and reds/pinks so whatever kinds of pages you make you have the right colours. Also, your quality is unmatched, such lovely papers… and then you have the soft neutrals in browns and creams, and I can tell already form the sneak peek above that they are beautiful. My faves are the  blue snowflake and the blue stars papers.

Oh yeah! Another sentimental collection. Yes, this one is a little bit frosty but still warm somehow! And completely unavailable in Poland, as the rest of your products. It’s left to dream of it and cross my fingers… Hugs.

Oh my, I am in winter wonderland heaven with this new collection!  I hear the sleigh bells and can see the children playing in the snow.  I love how these are not the traditional Christmas colors we see each year.  You can do so much more with this collection.  I hope, pray and wish to win this collection Maja.  Congrats on a beautiful new collection.

Hi, I absolutely LOVE all of your vintage collection! I’m from Canada and I’m trying to find where I can purchase your product, it’s not easy but I’ll keep looking! I’ m from New Brunswick Canada. I would LOVE to win this considering I am not able to find it around here…Thanks for the chance to win! Sandra

Another great collection and I cant wait to see what your girls make with this lot.  They have been amazing with the previous collections.  And I love that they can combine papers from the different collections and still come up with something that fits so perfectly together.  Your vintage collections are amazing.


Please send your address and phone number to and we will ship the Vintage Frost Basics collection to you.

Take care, and enjoy the magic Days of December.
