Let it Snow for Maja Design

Hello crafty friends!


It got cold, the first snow starts falling, icicles on the roofs and will make
our world a little bit quieter and slower. 
Winter time is sledding time too. 
I loved that as I was a child, today I'm a 'Frostbeule' ;-) 
 and what could be better than sitting in a small warm dreamy winter cottage 
and watching the snow fall softly to the ground. 
The children are romping in the snow and inside a fireplace crackles, wonderful!

Winter greetings from Kerstin !

Wish YOU - for SASPC

Welcome crafty friends!


 The time has come again, the Advent season is just around the corner, but we have not really coped with the hot summer. The first sunday of Advent, the right time for christmas wishes .

I was inspired to make a MDF - Tag in mixed media style with a grunge touch of Steampunk.


Our challenge theme for November and December is the usual
Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial


and of course a project that combines X-mas with steampunk or industrial style is more than welcome too ;)
And as it is a two months long challenge you are allowed to enter up to five projects instead of just the usual three!



 some details


 a small wish roll from torned craft paper attached to a toothpick with two small metal gears
inkpot and pen are 3D sticker from La Blanche


a lucky beetle with two antennas that are always on reception
 

two candles who want to shed light into the darkness of our time.

I hope this little tag can inspire you to create your own idea and project!



I wish you and your families a peaceful Advent season!

Little winter cottage for Calico Craft Parts

Welcome!

The first Advent is just around the corner and the time for Christmas preparations begins. 
  
Most important to us are always the many lights to make the dark season more enjoyable. 
But Christmas also has a lot to do with romance and cosiness. 
And what could be better than sitting in a small warm dreamy winter cottage and watching the snow fall softly to the ground.  
The children are romping in the snow and inside a fireplace crackles.

That were my thoughts behind this new project.



more details and useful tips can you find

 in the Calico Craft Parts Shop, have a look and you will be amazed!

Thanks for your visit and I wish you a beautiful Advent season!

Timeless Traditions for Maja Design

Welcome friends!

I'm very happy to share with you a new layout with our latest collection 'Christmas Season'.
 
This collection, is a wonderful Holiday/Winter combo with red and blue season colours. You will have a holiday collection that you can continue to use well past Christmas.
My absolutely favourite in this very beautiful collection is the sheet 'Mail the post
cards', I love the very delicate background scenery 
and the lovely woman at the mailbox in a mixture of soft winter colours.

I have set myself the task to cover up as little as possible of the amazing motifs.

some details


I used some cutting dies and added some wonderful chipboards 
from Dusty Attic to add dimension.

a real postcard motif



As I saw the paper sheet 'Greeting Cards' I thought, yes, that's the perfect addition for this theme.
So  I cut out some individual postcards, using the paper distresser tool and inked around the edges with  dark brown.
This project was so much fun to create and I love the scene that you can build up, using some paper sheets from the new collection.
Thanks so much for your visit!
 I hope this layout will set you up for a beautiful and relaxed Advent season!
