Hello there, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas time and your New Year’s Eve parties were a bang!
I’m happy to be back on the blog with the first layout this year 🙂 And as I wanted to enjoy the holiday collection a little bit more than just around Christmas, I used the Christmas Season papers to make it 🙂
You wouldn’t tell it’s a Christmas collection, would you? That’s what I love about Maja papers, the diversity and universatility that allow you to use themed collections whenever you want! And so I layered some papers in the background and added some squares punched out from scraps to add some pattern:
Since the time is still around the holidays and the carnival is just beginning, I wanted to add some glam and shine and therefore I opted for some gold accents: metal embellies, gold buttons, sequins and glitter:
But at the same time I wanted to make the layout boyish-harsh, so I added denim ribbon and some black stamped “handwritten” sentiments:
I made the title by combining gold foam letters with a die-cut word:
…and the title shines too 😉
And I’m really glad it turned out light and almost clean&simple style (at least for my taste!). What do you think?
Here’s what I used:
Maja Design papers:
Other: stamps: Heidi Swapp; flowers: Prima; letters: American Crafts; die: Creative Expressions; buttons, punch: Docrafts; sequins, ribbon, pearls: my stash.
Wishing you a very creative 2019! See you soon!
