Winter Is Coming – Cook Something Delicious!

Posted by Maja Nowak

24 November, 2020 -

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

So Maja Design did it again – released two winter collections that are absolutely gorgeous! You already saw some fabulous projects of my talented DT friends using the Traditional Christmas collection (which I’m still about to cut 😉 ) and I think it’s a good moment to share some inspiration using the other set – Winter Is Coming. Now, you might be lucky to live in a part of the world where winter means good weather and a lot of sunshine, but that’s not the case in central Europe 😉 So winter coming means gloomy weather, cold and rainy (not much luck with snow, though, as of recently) and it’s best to stay inside and warm up with something yummy to cheer up. And it’s good to have best recipes at hand, gathered in one nice recipe book:

As you see, the collection is (as all Maja papers) universal enough to mask its “winterness” 🙂 And looking at the colour palette, don’t you just think plum pie and raspberry jam?

I used a mix of papers for the front cover as I couldn’t decide which one to feature! That mix made a colourful background for the stamped and hand-coloured image of a girl, to which I added a cupckae button, an embossed chipboard title and a spoon-shaped charm:

Inside I added some more stamping and a die-cut kitchen mixer:

I included some pre-printed pages to write recipes on


…and added a pocket for some loose pieces to the inside back cover:

I think a handmade recipe book would make a great Christmas gift. What do you think?

Here’s my list of supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Stamping Bella, Tim Holtz, Inkadinkado; dies: Spellbinders; button: Lemoncraft; chipboard: Scrapiniec; charm, ribbon: my stash.


That’s all for today, keep dropping by for more inspiration! See you soon!

  • Wouw this is absolut stunning work once again Maja, and I can see many different ideas made with this too, as you could make a special album for eaach season of the year, like springrecipees, summerrecipees and so on and also different special albums aas f.ex. Birthdayrecipees, Christmasrecipees or even one with maybe grandma´s special cookies or dessert, or whatever one self can think of, so it´s a gift, that can go on for quite a while, if it´s for one of those persons, that can be hard to find gifts for. You can even make one from every beautiful collection, that Maja Design has ever released, what a wonderful view that would be on a shelf ha ha ha. I really love your idea here and it´s simply stunning work as always.
