Hello Sweet Maja Fans ,
First I want to wish you all a very Happy and creative New year. I hope you had a wonderful Holiday Season.
I’m having a bit of a hard time to say goodbye to it. I always love that time of the year.
So one more Christmas post from me for closure and to start with the new year.
As you see no layout , card or minialbum but a altered clock. I bought this one a while ago at the dollar store , and is was waiting for the perfect opportunity to come along .
When I got the latest collection Christmas Season collection I knew I had to use them for this project.
Here you have a closeup from the top of the clock.
And one close up from the bottom. The christmas cards are cut out of the Greeting Cards sheet.
And one fromthe side.
I hope you like my Clock. I keep it at my craft room as a countdown to next Holiday season.
Happy and Creative New year!!
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:
Deck the Halls-bs
Shade of Christmas-White-bs
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!
Merry Christmas my dear friends!!!
May all the sweet magic of Christmas conspire to gladden your heart and fill every desire you have!
Mary here with you today and I have a new layout with a video tutorial to share with you made for my December inspiration. A soft christmasy page created with some gorgeous papers from the new ”Christmas Season” collection.
I have also prepared a VIDEO TUTORIAL so you can watch all the details.
As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across with that amazing photo. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.
My main paper is the ”Greeting Cards” and I made a layer on it with the ”Mistletoe Green” paper. Behind my photo I used the ”Mistletoe Green”, the ”Trim the Tree” and the ”Greeting Cards” papers to add some layers.
I started by applying a coat of clear gesso on the background paper and then I used an icing paste with a stencil to create texture. I made some stamping here and there and I used Lindy’s Gang sprays to add color.
Next step was to paint all the Dusty Attic chipboards with the Finnabair acrylic paints.
When everything was glued down I added some glass glitter and beads.
I hope you enjoyed my project!
Thank you for stopping by!
