Feb Mood Board

~February Mood Board~

The items I've created below are inspired by the February Maja Design Mood Board, which features different colors, inspirations and quotes each month.

I adore the way the colors and other elements of the Mood Board work together to get my imagination flowing, and I hope they can do the same for you :)

If you feel inspired by our monthly Mood Boards, you can enter the challenge each month, for a chance to win a Maja collection of your choice!
For all the details on how to enter, please visit the Maja Design Blog.

And if you happen to need just a touch more inspiration, there are plenty of beautiful creations from the design team on the blog to get your creative juices flowing... You can find all of them here.

Now it's my turn to show what I've created for this month's Mood Board challenge, so let's get to it.

I wanted to make a few things using these beautiful colors, since they are so near and dear to my heart {read below as to why that is!}. So I made a card, and a few items for a gift basket.

I thought about doing a wedding themed project, which seemed to be so fitting for these soft colors, but eventually I decided I wanted to try to use them in a new way. 

First up, a card to go inside the gift basket. 
Since the Mood Board hints towards all things love-themed, I wanted to add a few little bits of love-inspired touches, hence the pretty sparkly heart on the front. 

I used several layers of pretty Maja paper and piles and piles of lacey details, like the punched paper and doilies, as well as the lace and dot borders. 

I used the "Many Thanks" stamp set from The Craft's Meow, and a few more of my handmade touches, like the shabby ribbon and handmade button.

Next up, I decorated a little jar, with more of the same elements and the beautiful Maja paper.
{this little jar was later filled with a delicious spread, to go into the gift basket}

For the final item, I wrapped a little box {with more yummy treats inside} with the gorgeous Maja paper and embellished it with a doily, glittered heart and a pretty, shabby bow!

What an easy thing it is to create when someone picks beautiful colors and inspirations for you!
{Sigh...If only I had a mood board for every time I created something...}

And now it's your turn!
Here is this month's Mood Board...Hope it inspires you to make something beautiful today!

{Recognize the pictures in this Mood Board? When Jenny asked if I could send some of my wedding photos to her for Mood Board inspiration, I was SO excited! These are some of my favorite colors, so using them as inspiration was just plain fun!}

Thanks for visiting today :)
