Goodmorning lovely Maja Design Fans,

I am sorry for being so absent the last couple of months I have been very busy with my little family and my design life! But I am very delighted to show you my latest cards that I made with the gorgeous “Happy Christmas” collection. The flowers are handmade and for the those flowers I used a range of pretty dies to make them. All the beautiful boards are by the wonderful Renea Bouquets. These are tall cards because of the big flowers I made and otherwise it wouldn’t fit lol.

For the base of the cards I used the monochromes papers that matches the papers collection. Then I layered two different sheets on top of that and the top sheet I have stitched around the edges. All the beautiful boards I kept plane just as I like them the best. As you can maybe also see is that I used Maja Design stamps they are a little older but oh sooooo pretty

I have used a lot of dies in the proces but what I like most is the way that the beautiful boards coordinate so well in every project I make.I added a stencil on the background sheets as well. I finished of my cards with some shard glitter glass & some snow.

Goodmorning lovely Maja Designs Fans,

Today I’d like to show you two 8×8 layout’s made with the amazing new “Joyous Winterdays” I am so in love with this collection because it is really versatile and there are such great patterns on the paper sheets. On the first layout I used the red and green tones in the collection and I named it “All That Glitters”….These layouts are all made with dies to show off the beautiful papers. What is great about that, that your flowers are the same tones as the rest of your layout. I also added some snow accents on the flowers clusters and on the cinnamon piece.

At the end I added some white spray to make it more as a snow effect and used some cream prills on top of the distressed honeycomb die. The centers of my flowers are made out of a metallic flatback gem…..also I added those white fussy balls to spice up the flower clusters.

For my second layout I used the blue and green tones with a touch of cream papers.

On the background of this layout I sprayed some white ink again after that I added a stencil with stars…..then I added the picture and the already prepaired flowers {I made a bunch of them while I was watching tv that is so relaxing} at the end I sprayed some glitter spray on my layout but sadly you don’t see that on the picture.

Hello Maja Design Friends,

I’ve got a couple of cards to share with you today – totally inspired by the snow in Winter

Wonderful_Winter_Cards

For my cards I used Vintage Winter collection , my number one among all of the beautiful Maja Christmas papers. Each year I can not pass by and create a bunch of cards with mostly blue colors.

Wonderful_Winter_Cards_01

I like the color combo of white and blue, it seems that I can feel how calm it is when the snow falls down

Wonderful_Winter_Cards_03

I’ve added the flowers on my cards, mostly white and silver grey, I guess they add the frosty feeling.

Wonderful_Winter_Cards_02

I also die cut the frames from the papers and the glittered cardstock, the snowflakes chipboard that I kept raw and the crochet doily

Hope you have liked my cards and enjoy this special time of the year.

Goodmorning lovely Maja Fans,

Oh was I happy to get my design team package last week the new collection is such a pretty one, that I totally am in LOVE with it. Tomorrow I will be teaching some small classes at a retreat called “Kreadoe” which is much like CHA but a little smaller as it is in The Netherlands. I will be at a stand called De Hobby Boerderij were I will be using a bunch of Maja Design papers so if you will be visiting this retreat please come by to say hello 😉 Today I will be showing you a 12 by 12 layout using this wonderful new collection hope you like it.

maja1000 I did some handstitching on my layout…a while ago I never thought I could make a layout without stitching but now I it’s rare if I do. So I guess things aways chance in scrapbooking. The chipboard pieces are treated with snoweffects the same as I did with the pretty flowers I used on this layout. I fell in love with this sweet picture I got from pinterest that I had to use it.

I really enjoy making wintery layouts although I dislike Winter more than the other seasons.  The centers of the flowers are made with mini prills and little wooden balls (only the larger ones) some of the leaves in the flowers clusters are from a die by sizzix which I adore.
