Good morning, dear Maja friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

With November ending, the holiday season is really close and I’m very happy about it, but while it’s still autumn, I wanted to make some non-winter and non-Christmas projects 🙂 However, that doesn’t mean I won’t be using wintery papers! Especially when the latest release, Holiday In The Alps, is so beautiful! And like all Maja collections, it’s versatile enough to be used for other themes than winter and Christmas.

And so I made a… wedding card 🙂

For my card I chose the sand and burgundy colours to make it festively rich. I layered Monochrome sheets beneath the beautiful damask of the top paper. I distressed all the edges for more texture. I also added a vintage label with metallic foil:

Upon such background I placed a layered die-cut wreatch of leaves and filled the centre with sand and burgundy flowers, completed with paper foil straws, vintage ribbon and acrylic crystals:

I also added a chipboard sentiment in the lower corner of the card and covered it with glitter to match the glamour style of the card:

I think the card turned out really nice, the rich damask background and shiny features of foiled and glitter elements. I also like the dimension, of course 🙂

What do you think?

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers, vintage ribbon: Wild Orchid Crafts; die: Joy!Crafts; straws, vintage label, crystals: my stash.

 

This is my last autumn post, so for the next one I promise to make something more wintery 🙂

See you soon!

 

Winter Home Decor Shaker Box

Jennifer Snyder here to share a project I made using the new Holiday in the Alps collection.  This is such a gorgeous collection to see up close, with amazing patterns, rich reds and frosty blues.
I created a home decor decorated box to fill with candy or a small gift.  This box is unique because the lid has a beautiful shaker finishing the top of the box.  The coordinating patterns in the Maja Design collections are always perfect for fabulous layered projects.
Here are the papers used on this decorated box:
Let it Snow ( A and B side of paper)
Snowmen

 The box has been decorated using a combination of chipboard snowflakes from Creative Embellishments, and 3D Buttons from Buttons Galore and More.

I’ve added a vintage shaped snowflake shaker from Creative Embellishments to the top of the box that completes the frosty winter theme of the box.
If you look at the bottom of the image below, you’ll see a strip of paper around the edge of the box lid.  This is one of those wonderful  decorative edges that Maja places on the bottom of all sheets of  paper. One side of the strip has the paper collection name and bar code.  The other side always has a delightful pattern.  I try and save the strips because they are perfect for finishing touches on projects and cards.
Thanks for stopping here.  I wish you a wonderful holiday Christmas season and happy crafting.
