 Goodmorning Lovely Maja Design Fans,

Today I’d like to share another wintery layout with you all made with some beautiful Maja Design papers. All though I really dislike winter I do love making layouts like this, and I feel another one coming …. since we had some snow in the last 2 weeks {around 20 cm} I went outside with our little princess {and I took a whole bunch of pictures} I find that snow is very peaceful and you can hear yourself think that’s nice sometimes. But oh does it get messy when melting ughhh. It was a while since there was that much snow.

As you can see on my layout I did some handstitching which I find very therapeutic to do…I kept the colors very neutral and the layout is very clean & simple at least for me. On my background I added a crackle stamp and a crackle stencil. I also distressed the edges a lot on the the beautiful boards I just some sprays and snow but I gessod it first.

I am a hugh fan of of Renea’s Bouquets Moonstone Glass Beads so I added a couple randomly on my page can you spot them? For this layout I used a picture of my husband and son when he was little I could have used some newer pictures but this one is very precious to me. For this layout I used two pretty Maja Design collections “Home for the Holidays” & “Joyous Winterdays”

The frame was treated with gesso and then I added some snow and the amazing Gawdie Girl Diamond Fine German Glitter Glass on top of that snow. I aslo did the same with the snowflake beautiful boards. The butterflies I treated a little to with some spray & snow to make it a little less shiny what looked better on this particular layout. As I said before I really love how well the Maja Design papers combine together….love all my maja papers so much 🙂

Maja Design papers used: Joyous Winterdays: Glisten bs & Mr Snowman bs, Home for the Holidays: Together

Hello Sweet Majafans.

First I want to  wish you a very Happy New year. I hope all your wishes will come true.

For my first post this year I bring you a wintercard.

 

I used a piece of the Sparkle sheet from the Joyous Winterdays  on the top and used Monochromes-shades of the Alps -Snow

for a double mat.

I used it to make the snowflake as well . this one is made with the Snowflake rosette die from Tim Holtz, the beautiful ornament behind it

is made with a die from Marianne design Creatables .

The flower and ribbon are from my own stash . The Winter Wishes sentiment is a stamp from Waltzing Mouse.

 

Here A close up , as you can see I used a lot of glitterglue to get a sparkly snow effect. this is done using Nuvo Glitter Accents.

The little bling heart and  the flowercenter are also from Nuvo.

Thank you for visiting hope you like what I made for you .

Hi everyone! Here comes some Christmas inspiration from me. I have used some of the lovely papers called Joyous Winterdays. Just perfect for any Winter/Christmas card. We are already in November, so now is the time to start with your Christmas cards, if you haven’t already.

The image is coloured in blue and brown to match the papers. I use Distress Ink for my colouring.

I have cut out some leaves from the papers, and added Fran-tage onto them.

Under you can see the card together with some other card also using the Joyous Winterdays Collection.

Here it is laying on an old platter which I have inherited. All dies used and image is from Magnolia.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today! At the moment I am making some cards with the new collection Holidays in the Alps. Hopefully I will have one ready for you on my next post. Have a great weekend!

With love,

Joyous winterdays!

Good morning! I am back again today. We have a new schedule at Maja Design, so I will post here the 2nd and the 16th every month. Since it was so suddenly after my last creation, I have not had the time to make a new card. So I will show you a card I made for the Ett Trykk Magazine for December. It is not that easy to spot, but I have made an open frame in the front of the card. And the cute image is inside the card. The gorgeous papers is from the collection called Joyous Winterdays.

So nostalgic! I have used papers in red and green.

Here are two houses I made with some dies from Magnolia. The image is also of course from Magnolia.

The image is called Joyful Tilda, and I have coloured her with Distress Inks, in colours to match the papers. She is masked together with this circle of snowflakes.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja design blog today. I will be back the 16th with a new card I am working with now. Wish you all a great Saturday!

With love,

Magic Winter Time

Welcome friends!

Recently we have made a beautiful winter trip in the mountains ‘Harz’.  

Snow and ice magically transformed the landscape into a winter fairy tale.

 

… and then we discovered a beautiful castle that looks like

 it was torn right from the pages of a storybook.

I choose for my mixed media layout the ”Sparkle” paper from the Maja Design ”Joyous Winterdays” collection.

I started as always by applying a coat of clear gesso on the background and then I cut out a handmade half moon from a white structure paper. I painted the moon with some watercolors and a little bit glitter paint and some deco stars for a magical effect. 

 It was a good background for a Dusty Attic chipboard and some winter trees made with cutting dies.

 

and  some another close up’s

a small cluster in the upper left corner

snow texture and glitter paints for some dreamy winter impressions

another bigger cluster made with frosted roses, silver winter berries, feathers and laces

I framed the cut out photo with a chipboard and used the moon as magical background.

I colored the flourish frame with white acrylic paint only on some places and white embossing powder to match to a wintry layout.

a wooden tree disc, snow paint and some paper leftovers

and a beautiful saying on a tag as addition and memory on a wonderful day

 

 used Maja Design papers from the ‘Joyous Winterdays’ collection

 

Many thanks for your visit and I hope I could inspire you to create your very own, amazing idea.

 

Happy crafting!
