Winter Wish for Maja Design


The time is right for a new winter inspiration. Actually snow should be here now and the frost pinch in the cheeks, but our winter weather is and remains dead loss. It's grey and dreary, but the best time for crafting, or?! 

I love the timeless delicate colors and designs of this beautiful paper collection, always suitable to a lot of various themes. I used this striped design as background, colours reminds me on frosty days,
 on a walk through the snowy winter wood and all the secrets you can discover there.

 some details

Thanks for your visit today!
 Have a beautiful time!

Filou - Home Alone


I'm back with a new and funny inspiration for you. 
That's our dog, it's a sheltie boy and his name is Filou.
 He is the sunshine in my family, always in a good mood and ready for a joke. 
Our cool dog loves to sit down on comfortable couch, 
sometimes I parked my computer there. 
And what should I say, he is very inquisitive :-) 

I used a lot of various colours and texture mediums from DecoArt 
on this shadow frame in Altered Art.
Basis was simple package material with corrugated cardstock.
The roof was made of two cardboard strips, 
which were bent in the middle and glued on with a heat gun.

used materials
DecoArt crackle paint white
Modeling paste whiteFluid
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics 'Cobalt Turquoise Hue', 'Carbon Black',
'Dark Grey', 'Titanium white', 'English Red Oxide'
Chipboards from Scrap FX
Embossing powder from Emerald Creek Dare

some details


So let's start with our first challenge of the year - it is - as usual - an

themed challenge and all kinds of projects (except digitally created ones) are welcome! So show us your tags, cards, art journal pages, canvases, altered objects, drawings, paintings, sketches....whatever you're up to as long as it fits our challenge themes steampunk or industrial.

Have fun and Happy crafting!

Winter Blues

Hello friends!

You should create something with a spot of blue.

Bei uns heißt Winterblues aber auch soviel wie Winterdepression und die kann man bei unserem grauen und trüben Novembernebelwetter auch bekommen. Eigentlich sollte es zu dieser Jahreszeit richtig kalt, verschneit und manchmal auch sonnig sein, Fehlanzeige,
 also was tun um nicht im tiefen Loch zu versinken?! 

Richtig :-) werkeln ist angesagt, man zaubert sich also seine eigene Winterwunderwelt!



Falls ihr Fragen habt, jederzeit gern!
Ich wünsche euch ein wunderschönes kreatives Wochenende!

Winterjoy for Maja Designs


Kerstin is back to share with you a new layout inspiration with a wintery feeling.
I used the paper collection

I was inspired from the story of this wonderful paper sheet 'Snowball fight'.
 Have you seen this little boy at the lower right edge ? !

Yes it's wintertime, the first snow is being celebrated immensely, 
enjoying building a snowman, ice-skating or having a funny snowball fight.
Always a pleasure and not only for children :-)

used products


other materials
cutting dies -Trees, Lantern, Snowflakes, Icecycles
Snow Tex from DecoArt
silicone clear stamps - Snowflakes, Winter sayings
small white styropor balls

some details

oh, the hat flies from his head, he hit the mark ;-)

the Monochrome collection 'Shades of Winterdays' has exactly suitable colors, here I used 'Dusty Teal bs' for the cutting die -lantern-

his favourite teddy bear on the bench sees everything :-)

fabulous - it's Steampunk time :-)

New Year has started, what will the future bring us?
 The little boy on my layout looks quite expectantly in this mysterious box.
 wishes - dreams -expectations

 used Scrap FX products



 some details

 Clock face stamp  
is also perfectly for edge stamping

I colored  the Fractured time 
chipboards with silver metal paint and used this pieces as frame and highlighted with some paper cut outs like clockfaces and cabochons

 I cut up BBQ Mesh
in several parts and used this as base for the year numbers

isn't this chipboard Suspended time   wonderful?!, I was immediately in love

and decided to use one of my favourite embossing powders
'Hammered  Metal' from Emerald Creek Dares highlighted with a steampunk charm

Happy crafting!
