For My Valentine

Morning and Happy Valentine's Day friends! This month Maja Design has posted a lovely schematic for February's Mood board and I figured that I would partake in the festivities:

The stamp is from Verve's latest release, this one is called More than Love. Papers are from the Ska Vi Ta En Fika? collection by Maja Design. I simply added some Pastel Polka ribbon and tied that around some sweet fabric violets, along with a twine bow and a crystal gem. Sweet and easy...just the way I like it. :)

Here’s a little reminder of what the mood board is 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

Maja Design is using mood boards for their challenges. They truly 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 being too 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 color 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 February 22nd. 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 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 February 19th at the latest.'s a chance to win some beautiful Maja Design papers for yourself!
Have a lovely weekend and thanks for stopping by~
