Hello Maja friends!

It got cold, the first snow starts falling, icicles on the roofs and will make our world a little bit quieter and slower.
Winter time is sledding time too.
I loved that as I was a child, today I’m a ‘Frostbeule’ ūüėČ
 and what could be better than sitting in a small warm dreamy winter cottage 
and watching the snow fall softly to the ground. 
 
The children are romping in the snow and inside a fireplace crackles, wonderful!
used papers

some details

a winter tree chipboard  from Dusty Attic, snowflakes made with stencil and cutting dies

two snowy lanterns made with silicone moulds

a icicles fabric ribbon and some suitable chipboard winter leaves

Have a peaceful and relaxe advent season!

Winter greetings from Kerstin!

Welcome friends!

I’m very happy to share with you a new layout with our latest collection ‘Christmas Season’.

 

This collection, is a wonderful Holiday/Winter combo with red and blue season colours. You will have a holiday collection

that you can continue to use well past Christmas.

My absolutely favourite in this very beautiful collection is the sheet ‘Mail the post cards’, I love the very delicate background scenery

and the lovely woman at the mailbox in a mixture of soft winter colours.

I have set myself the task to cover up as little as possible of the amazing motifs.

used papers

some details

I used some cutting dies and added some wonderful chipboards from Dusty Attic to add dimension.

a real postcard motif with a little snow flurry made with Snow Tex (DecoArt)

¬†As I saw the paper sheet ‘Greeting Cards’ I thought, yes, that’s the perfect addition for this theme.

So  I cut out some individual postcards, using the paper distresser tool and inked around the edges with  dark brown.

This project was so much fun to create and I love the scene that you can build up, using some paper sheets from the new collection.

Thanks so much for your visit!

 I hope this layout will set you up for a beautiful and relaxed Advent season!

Hello Maja friends!

Today a season inspired layout, winter time is knocking at the door,
best time for crafting, if it’s warm and cosy.
I created a nature inspired mixed media layout,
where I used a mix of torned monochrome and winter papers.

I used some paper sheets from the wonderful ‘Joyous Winterdays’

 

Thanks for your visit!

Heratful greetings from Kerstin

Welcome friends!

Today is the day of the year where especially the children have a lot of fun.

¬† I’m not the greatest Halloween fan but I love the mystical, imaginative side of it.

  Dimly light, swathes of mist envelope the landscape, glowing pumpkins in warm colors and not very serious stories, but always associated with a lot of fun.

 It is also the main harvest time of pumpkins in my garden,

you can cook wonderful dishes and soups
made out of pumpkins or use them just for decoration or make a pumpkin cutting event
for family and friends.

 

 I used some papers from our wonderful autumn collections.

Paper sheet ‘ The colours of fall’¬†from the paper collection ‘Walking in the forest’ was perfect for me as background.

Beautiful green shades together with the delicate old trees were very suitable for my autumn mixed media layout.

 The background brings the warm colors of the pumpkins to light.

some details

 I love layouts with a natural look and so can also find

acorns, autumn leaves and branches (cutting dies).

 Maja Design papers

are very well suited for working with

cutting dies, because
 papers are very stable and bring along the appropriate color shades.

a beautiful man and you can do it yourself ūüôā

 Exciting, what you can discover in autumn foliage

Thanks for your visit and Happy Halloween!

When the leaves are falling.

Hello sweet Maja fans,

Lenet here and today I bring you this autumn layout.

I”m very lucky to live close to the forest and the shore of the¬† North Sea

I love being outdoors and taking long walks especially in the forest  .

The colors are so beautiful this time of the year and I love the earthy smell, and a hot mug of coco with whipped cream when I get home to warm up.

There is so much to see while nature is preparing it self for winter.

I tried to bring you that feeling in todays layout.

I used the walk in the forest Collection for this one, love the warm colors and cosy patterns of this collection.

The little girl is holding a bouquet of flowers and I made it come back in this corner, the branches are cut out of a sheet of cork with a branch die from sizzix .

The fawns are made using the playful fawns die from memory box.

This branch comes from my stash and I have no idea what brand it is, but I used distress embossing powders to color it and gave it more dept with a layer of clear embossing powder on top of it.

Added some dewdrops for a finishing touch.

Hope I gave you some autumn inspiration to make your own layout, tag, card or anything.

Happy Fall to you all, enjoy it.
