April Mood Board

Spring is slowly arriving. The trees are waking up, stretching their branches towards the sun… Easter is approaching with new beginnings… Here is our new Mood Board for April.AprilMB

This months Mood Board has an Easter theme and is based on the Vintage Spring Basics collection.

I hope you haven’t missed the second opportunity you get by entering the Mood Board challenge? We will invite our Winter Girl based on the participating projects in our Mood Board challenge. The Winter Girl will receive a temporary seat by our table, the Vintage Frost Basics collection to play with and a posting of her own.

And here’s a little reminder of what our mood boards are used for…

Definition mood board – n

a board used by designers on which samples of various colours and textures are mounted to help in deciding which elements complement each other

We are using mood boards for our challenges. We truely believe in creativity and art at Maja Design. You are free to interpret the mood boards in any way you’d like. They are supposed to set you in an inspirational mood without too much controlling. We would like you to be inspired by the poems, words and photos. They are not given rules, they are just there as inspiration. They are all inspired by a Maja collection, but you are free to use any Maja papers you’d like as long as they follow the colour scheme. We highly encourage you to follow the theme of the mood board as well.

We are presenting a new mood board the first Saturday of every month. We will be presenting all participating creations that fulfill the requirements below April 26th. We will also draw a winner who will be winning a Maja Design collection of their own choice in 6×6 or 12×12.

After your creation is done, take a photo and send it to moodboard@majadesign.nu without any watermarks (size 600×600). Include your full name and address in the e-mail together with what collection you would like if you win. Don’t forget to write down if you would like 6×6 or 12×12. We need your creation April 23rd at the latest.

We will only publish creations that fullfill the requirements!

Happy Valentine’s Day

Morning Maja friends! Last week Jenny posted our monthly challenge, the Maja Design Mood Board. I don’t know about you, but Marie’s lovely choice in colors, heartfelt sentiments and sweet images really stir my creativity! I have a card today based on this challenge, using Maja’s Ska vi ta en fika collection: HappyValentinesFeb14M

I used Verve Stamps More than Love set, Pastel polka dotted ribbon, some fabric flowers I purchased in the wedding section of Michael’s and some twine. The design is based loosely on last week’s Mojo Monday sketch. FebruaryMBHere’s another card I made using the Life in the Country collection:YoureSoAmazingMaja

Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day tomorrow…I’ll be at work, but hopefully the husband will have dinner waiting for me when I get home! …Well, a girl can dream, right? ;)  Andrea-sign

Outside in the ski slope or by the fire place under a cozy blanket with someone you love. Yes, Valentine’s Day is coming up and this months Mood Board is all about love…FebruaryMB

WINNER OF THE VINTAGE FROST BASIC COLLECTION GIVEAWAY

First I have to send a huge THANK YOU to all of you, for all the lovely comments and kind words. It’s you who makes me wanna go on designing papers.
We well passed 200 comments!! And I’m going to ship the collection to six lucky winners:

 Mixable collections are just perfect! Double-sided I suppose,  so not 24, but 48 different designs to choose from! It gets even better: perfectly compatible with the other 3 Vintage Basics collections. What more could a girl want (expect for winning it, LOL)? Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to win (and drool all over it on beforehand)!

Fantastic!! Love that the collections always have a great mix of both blues/greens and reds/pinks so whatever kinds of pages you make you have the right colours. Also, your quality is unmatched, such lovely papers… and then you have the soft neutrals in browns and creams, and I can tell already form the sneak peek above that they are beautiful. My faves are the  blue snowflake and the blue stars papers.

Oh yeah! Another sentimental collection. Yes, this one is a little bit frosty but still warm somehow! And completely unavailable in Poland, as the rest of your products. It’s left to dream of it and cross my fingers… Hugs.

Oh my, I am in winter wonderland heaven with this new collection!  I hear the sleigh bells and can see the children playing in the snow.  I love how these are not the traditional Christmas colors we see each year.  You can do so much more with this collection.  I hope, pray and wish to win this collection Maja.  Congrats on a beautiful new collection.

Hi, I absolutely LOVE all of your vintage collection! I’m from Canada and I’m trying to find where I can purchase your product, it’s not easy but I’ll keep looking! I’ m from New Brunswick Canada. I would LOVE to win this considering I am not able to find it around here…Thanks for the chance to win! Sandra

Another great collection and I cant wait to see what your girls make with this lot.  They have been amazing with the previous collections.  And I love that they can combine papers from the different collections and still come up with something that fits so perfectly together.  Your vintage collections are amazing.

 

Please send your address and phone number to marie@majadesign.nu and we will ship the Vintage Frost Basics collection to you.

Take care, and enjoy the magic Days of December.

Marie
