Hello Maja friends! It’s Andrea coming to you one last time to bring you some delightful Maja Design goodness! This will be my last post as a design team member…I look back at my time here very fondly…Marie is wonderfully creative and generous, Jenny is super supportive and always helpful and the rest of the team, well, they’re just fabulous and wonderfully talented! I figured that my last post would be a collection of my very favorite Maja Design cards, so here we go: Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments over the past two years! Hope I’ve inspired you to go out there and create!
Hello Maja Desing fnas and friends!
Larissa here sharing a new Maja Design project with you guys!
As December is just around the corner and with a lot of great winter and Christmas lines by Maja Design I just thought it would be a great idea to start preparing my “December Daily” album.
For today´s project I have used “It´s Christmas time” line:
This collection is all about preparations, decorations and expectations – so, it was perfect for this project!
I´ve started with my album cover…
This is a canvas album filled with plastic pockets that I´ll use to insert my December daily pages.
I have decorated it using some blings, trims, flowers and by adding a bit of texture…
Let´s check its detaisl:
I hope you´ve enjoyed this project and leave this blog inspired to create something special!
Thanks for your visit,
See you soon,
Hello Maja Design fans and friends!
Larissa here sharing a new layout with you.
This time I´ve chosen to create something using It´s Christmas time line by Maja Design.
This collection is so versatile and has such beautiful colors and paterns that it can be used for a non Christmas themed layout.
And that´s exactly what I have done! Let me show you…
To create this page layout I have added a lew layers of gorgeous Maja Design papers and have included a few cutouts – all taken from It´s Christmas time line.
I have also included new Prima embellishments (notepads, flowers, wood icons and blings) for a fresh new look.
I hope you´ve enjoyed this layout!
Thank you so much for your visit!
See you soon,
The large purple flowers are some older Prima flowers as are the brown ones.
Project #2 – Christmas ( it’s not too soon)

Hello and a very warm welcome to Maja Design blog. Heather here again with you , showcasing a beachy layout today. Firstly I began by creating my signature stitching on my paper, this time an arty circle then layering and stacking with diecut tags .
HENLEY JETTY I shot this photo facing the foreshore watching my hubby and my grand daughter walking along one of the rustic old Jetties here in Adelaide. A beach side suburb called Henley Beach.The textured swirl to me speaks of the waves, froth and the salt .The heart represents how much I love this photo and my treasured hubby and precious grand daughter . The stitched circle demonstrates the never ending circle of the oceans movement. Constantly moving and flowing around and around … quite mesmerising and beautiful to watch the rolling, frothing, foaming of the waves. more stacked layering with added bling. .The title ‘Henley Jetty’ is created from the Die Cut letters …. I mounted each letter on foam tape and in my opinion the title looks totally rustic and beautiful .As an extra element of interest I tied two tags together with cotton string, representing how all the parts of nature go together . I chose to go mono-chromatic with the blues and white in order to allow the weathered and rustic boards on the Jetty to stand out in the photo . I love to imagine all the different feet and shoes that have walked these boards and the wind, the rain and ocean salt pounding year after year . I have always been fascinated by the strength of a Jetty, how the structure withstands so much weather and time and the never ending pounding and crashing waves of the ocean against the boards .

I wanted to create an album for Joel about his first Christmas Eve. Still I wanted it to be rather simple so I would actually finish it. I don’t know how many mini’s over the years that I’ve spent years on, simply because I’m not that good at finishing them. The idea was to cover Christmas Eve from morning until evening. So here comes Joel first Christmas album, It’s Christmas Time version.
I really liked this album by Twiddleybitz with the beautiful window on the front. I’ve used a Tim Holtz die for the border and covered it with Distress Stickles Rock Candy. All ribbon and lace are from a LSS. Resin, flower and leaves by Prima. The white and later on golden pearls have all been created with a Pearl Maker pen.
I’ve covered the window ledge with snow paint and also put in an old fashioned “glass” by using a sheet of gelatin. I really love how he peeks out the window.Here’s the first spread… All chipboard inside the album are by Kaisercraft.
The little tag says “Our little sleepy santa” and he truely was. The second spread…The tag says “First Christmas present”. He got a little baby rattle in his stocking.
“The star of the evening”. He looked really cute in his outfit. I’ve used Shimmerz Texturez for the stars. I created the star mask myself, using my Gazelle.Next spread…I’ve used an edge punch by Martha Stewart for the border. The little sign says “Grandma and Grandpa”
I’ve used one of my favourite papers for this page, Merry. The sign says “Mommy and me”.
Last spread…I love the little alpha die cuts. They are so cute. Here they say “Santa’s coming”.
And after a long day… Bedtime. Flower and bling by Prima.
I hope you got inspired to create something beautiful with your latest Christmas memories.

Morning Maja friends! It’s Andrea here with you today…bringing you some Maja holiday goodness in the form of some cards…a few of which I made over the last 2 weeks and then a little recap of my favorite Maja Design themed card over this past year. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been with the team almost a year now and I can tell you that I absolutely adore Marie’s designs and the lovely, quality paper that she puts into every set. Her papers are definitely my ‘go-to’ papers…I will never tire of their delicate, vintage style! So without further chitchat…here are a couple new ones: I used the Vintage Frost Basics for my ‘Happy Christmas’ card. This card below is from the same line:
Vintage Summer Basics is the theme for this card above.
And here are some of my favorites:This one features the Vintage Summer Basics collection. I used Walking in the Forest for the above card. One of my favorites, Ska vi ta en fika. This one uses the Vintage Autumn Basics papers. Vintage Spring Basics on this one. And for this holiday season, It’s Christmas time.
I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a super New Year! Thanks so much for tuning in and spending just a little bit of your day with me!
Hi there! I have been making a Calendar for 2014 for Maximilians grandparents lately. I am not finihed yet, but hopefully it will be before Christmas! I will start with showing you the page for December, January and February – the winter months.
For December I have used the lovely papers from the It’s Christmas Time Collection – Joyful. The dies used are from Magnolia, the same as the image.
For Januar I have used the Vintage Frost Basics-6th of December, 9th of December. Here with another image from Magnolia. The snowflakes are made with a Martha Stewart punch, the leaf and swirl are made with dies from Magnolia.
And for February I have used the lovely 12th of December and 13th of December. The beautiful ice skates are made with a Tim Holtz die. I have made place for a tag on all pages, where they can write important dates every month.
Morning Maja lovelies! It’s Andrea here with you today…here in the United States we’re gearing up for our Thanksgiving holiday…which usually translates into a four day weekend for some of us lucky ones…(yes, I’m one of them!). This year is a special one for me and my daughter, our birthdays happen to fall on the Thanksgiving holiday. I had her on my 29th birthday so we share something very special…being born on the same day! I can tell you, I will never get another birthday present as wonderful as that one! Getting back to why you’re here…I’ve got a few cards to share with you, the first one from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection:This card features No. XIX, No. XIII, No. XXIII and No. XX papers. I made a bird’s nest out of burlap and glue…and added a few pearl ‘eggs’ to it. The leaves are cut out of a strip of burlap and I also added some fabric leaves and a row of paper flowers over some vintage lace. The crystal flourish is from Zva Creative. In addition, to the top and bottom, I added a zig-zag of hand stitching. Here are a couple of other cards I’ve made over the last two weeks featuring Maja Design papers:This tag also features the Vintage Autumn Basics papers, loaded up with Zva Creative pearls, fabric flowers, chipboard, daisy-chain lace, tulle accents, twine and lots of shabby edges.The sentiment was cut out from No. IV-bs at the bottom of the page…Marie always includes sweet sentiments and strips of heavenly shabby designs at the bottoms of the pages. Lastly, here’s a Christmas card in celebration of the next big holiday:A few jingle bells, some distressed gingham ribbon, fabric flowers, ephemera and some burlap added to the It’s Christmas time collection make this quite a cozy card!
