Waiting for Spring

Hello Maja friends!

It’s March now and everyone is waiting for spring because we have had enough of the snow and coldness.

As the snow slowly melts and patches of green start to show, a whole
new world unfolds around you, offering a nature experience of a different kind.
As soon as the days start to draw out again shoots begin to show everywhere:
the first to peek through the soil are the snowdrops, daffodils and crocuses.
I was able to discover them in my garden before winter came back.

But what is one of my favorite sayings?

Now matter how long the winter
Spring is sure to follow!

So I was inspired to make a springtime layout with some paper sheets

from the beautiful collection ‘Vintage Romance’

together with some stamps, cutting dies (letters, circles, branches, frames, butterflies, tags, leaves),

lace, feathers, Art stones, old note paper, Distress inks,

a small book page from La Blanche

and a little paper doll from Tim Holtz.

some details

the background paper ‘When I saw you’ has so wonderful delicate green stripes,

very subtly and suitable for beginning of spring

some little hearts in light green were a perfect addition

and I used this paper together with a lot of various cutting dies

oh, the word SUN is hidden on the right side beside this sweet photo

it’s no wonder, or?!

Is like a message to us, that we have to go on and don’t leave our way

to make the sun shine on us again.

Thanks for your visit!
Have a beautiful time!

A beautiful evening

Welcome Maja Friends!

I’m also still creating with our latest amazing ‘Celebration’ collection. As I saw this elegant dancing pair I thought on our annual SemperOperaball in Dresden. It’s a very special and magic event.

”Despite low temperatures, thousands of people will take to the theatre square in front of the Semper Opera House to celebrate the Semper Open Air Ball. While guests watch the gala programme inside, up to 15,000 partygoers will be singing and dancing outside in front of the opera house. In rain, freezing temperatures or under starlit skies – the Semper Open Air Ball transforms the square into the world’s largest dance floor for the locals and guests.”

Therefore I was inspired to make a home decoration piece, it’s a cloche in romantic vintage style.

How you can see you will need not so much materials, main thing is the paper sheet ‘Ballroom dancing’, old music paper, Distress inks and some embellishments how like flowers, lace, feathers and what do you want.

I used as basic a star from a cutting die. After I cut out the pair, I curved the motif with a knitting needle and folded the feets to glue them on. The paper from Maja Design is so stable that it stands alone, but you can stick to support a few more blooms from behind against it.

Now you just need to stick the decoration on.

I rolled up the notebook paper, distressed the edges and created some paper sticks.


I highlighted some places with Stickles ‘Baby Blue’ from Ranger and a wonderful blue feather suitable to the ball gown.

… and your new eyecatcher is ready 🙂

Thanks for your visit!

Greetings from Kerstin 🙂

Let’s have fun

Good morning Maja friends!

– Be brave, be happy , be a dreamer –

Every thing is dancing to my whistle 😉 that was my motto for this funny layout.

Kerstin is here and I had a lot of fun with this old and very cool photo and thought

our newest paper collection ‘Celebration’ is more as suitable

for a vintage layout, which should make a little bit good mood

 in our gray everyday life.

I used our latest amazing Paper collection ‘Celebration’


and some details

I cut out some from this beautiful man silhouettes and used this people to frame the Black/ white photo.


and I love the borders from this papers,

dancing people have a happy and funny appearance, a perfectly addition, right?!

Thank you very much!

Have a wonderful time!

You’re invited

Welcome Maja friends!

Valentine’s day is just around the corner,

the right time for me to make some cards and tags for good friends, because it’s not only the day for romantics and those in love,
also to remember on beautiful and happy moments with loving people.

As I saw our newest paper collection ‘Celebrate’ I was inspired from the dancing people from the sheet ‘Charleston’, they radiate so much joy and love of life, right?!

I thought on old film classics, on the 20s and created two tags in vintage style. I prefer not so much colors, only brown,white and black because the motifs are very meaningful.

used Maja Design papers


some details

Firstly I used an embossing folder ‘Music notes’ and film stripe was made with a die cut,

at one point it was torn sideways to insert a text stripe.

Have you seen the lower margins on all the paper sheets, they are very suitable as addition. I used ‘You’re invited’.

Two happy dancing people were cut out, some flowers, pearls and a black feather, not more and the funny little tag was ready.


…. and a second inspiration with ‘You’re invited bs’ as background paper


… and suitable to this tags a romantic card in vintage style

used Maja Design papers


some details


Many thanks for your visit, I hope it was a little inspiration for you

to try out and play with our newest collection papers.

Have a wonderful crafty time!


Winter wishes

Good Morning Maja friends!

The time is right for a new winter inspiration. Actually snow should be here now and the frost pinch in the cheeks, but our winter weather is and remains dead loss. It’s grey and dreary, but the best time for crafting, or?! 

I love the timeless delicate colors and designs of this beautiful paper collection, always suitable to a lot of various themes. I used this striped design as background, colours reminds me on frosty days,

 on a walk through the snowy winter wood and all the secrets you can discover there.
