Hello Sweet Maja fans.

Lenet here and I’m a little late today. I was working on an other project but got stuck on that one,  so I decided to start a new one and that made me running out of time.

Today I made this Christmas layout for you , using the gorgeous new Christmas papers Christmas Season . LOOOOVE them.

While I was making this one I was listening to a mix of Evanescence , Night wish and Within Temptation so it got a little  Gothic feel over it.

Not my  intention but I love how it turned out , hope you do to.

The chippies U used  ( the sentiments and swirls ) are from  Dusty Attic. I colored them with embossing powder.

The sentiments with black embossing powder from WOW  and the Iron Garnish #2 swirls with ultra thick festive candy  from Blond Moments.

I love their embossing powders such a shame the company is not here any more.

 

The golden glitter snowflake , star and red and white berries are are from my stash , leaves  from making memories and the branches with red from Prima marketing.

Thank you for stopping by, hope I gave you some inspiration with these wonderful papers.

For me it’s time to set the Christmas tree and start decorating the home..YAAAY.  I love this time of the year.

Hope you enjoy your Holiday month too.

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’ 😉
 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!

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.

Hello Sweeties

Today, I’m up on Maja Design blog for the last time. After 4 years, it’s time for me to say goodbye and it’s never easy, but don’t worry, you will continue to see me on the web. I want to thank Marie again for having me for such a long time, her kindness, and for her generosity.
And for my last project, I made a layout featuring the Vintage Basics collections: I used the Summer and Spring collections. I work with another of my family treasure: on the photo, taken by my maternal grandfather, you can see his mother with his brother.

First I stamped randomly with a dark brown ink and different stamps. When done, I primed the background with clear gesso.

I mixed together a brown magical with white crackle paste to add a design with a stencil. To give the effect of a peeling design I used my palette knife to remove some part of the design. I let dry naturally to allow the crackle to appear.

In the meantime, I soaked some flower chipboards in order to give them more dimension and texture. I gently pulled apart the edges to add more texture. After drying, I primed them with white gesso and I used blue and brown inks to add some colors.

I just added some gold shimmer to the white flowers and some brown ink to the leaves. I colored also some leaves chipboards with the brown ink as well as a mix of different sizes of Art Stones.

When the crackle paste was dry, I added some colors with the same inks to the background. Next, I cut a few papers to add under the photo before gluing all the embellishments.

To finish the layout I add some fine glitters on top of the flowers chipboards and the Art Stones.

Hello sweet Maja Fans,

Lenet here , it’s my turn to bring you some inspiration .

I bring you this layout with a picture of my son when he was 4 years old inspired by the moodboard of this month.

As you might know or maybe not the challenge is for 2 months this time so still loads of time to enter.

He made his first drawing  that of a car on our garden table with chalks that are meant to use on the sidewalk or floor outside .

Of course I was not really happy with him drawing on my table but he was so proud of it ,an me my self as well .

for this layout I used some left overs from the vintage baby collection.

The one with the blue stars that I used as a background was just a little to small to cover the cardstock I used as base  , so I torn it in two and connected it again with some sewing.

I added some buttons to the twine for a playful effect.

I hope you like my layout.

Have a lovely day
