Hello Maja Friends,

October is almost over, so it’s to start Christmas preparations. And I like this time when I look through all Maja Design Christmas collections. It’s a hard choice, so I hope to try each one and to create many cards.

For today’s post I chose Traditional Christmas collection from the previous year.

I enjoyed the process of fussy cutting the elves

I like traditional colors of this collection and especially those cute elves.

I embellished my cards with Christmas die cuts and like that used only papers for them.

Those elves are perfect for decorating not only kids projects.

 

Products used:

Spellbinders ( Amazing Paper Grace) Dies

Hello Dear Maja Fans,

Hope you all are safe and oke.

Lenet here and today I bring you this Halloween wallhanger made  from a wooden doorhanger and papers from the Little streetcafe collection.

 

I made the moon of the hole  in the doorhanger that you use to hang it on your doorknob .

I put some tiny lights from Tim Holtz idea-ology behind the moon so it can really shine.

The chippies are from Scrapaholics and I colored them black with black embossingpowder from WOW. The little bats are dies from wich I don’t know the brand any more.

 

A close up from the moon. on the back I used the same paper as the moon , the Yellow sunshine sheet.

ThanI put the tiny lights in a way that you won’t see it peeping from behind the full moon.than i clued a piece of mica sheet on the top of the wallhanger before I glued the papers on it and on the mica I gleud the full moon. I cut it a little smaller than the original hole so you would see the light as you turn it on.

I hide the on and of switch on the back of the hanger.

I hope you like my little Halloween project and I wish you a safe and happy Halloween.

See you next time,

Confirmation Card Revisited

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

A couple of years ago on one of the craft forums I found a challenge called “Project Revisited”. The challenge meant that you recreate a past project of yours, whether introducing some changes or not. I thought this was great for beginners to check on their progress, but also for any crafter, just for fun. And so with a recent Confirmation card order I thought of this challenge and recreated a card I made a couple of years ago.

I used the Miles Apart collection for the card and kept the design mostly unchanged, but while I used just Monochrome papers then, I decided to go for a patterned paper this time, choosing my favourite rose bouquets pattern and I just LOVE how fresh and delicate it looks!

In the previous card the die-cut doilies were supposed to add some texture and interest to the background, and here I found they provide the structure for the design and make the background less busy. I think it’s awesome how the same element can have opposite functions when used in different contexts!

 

As the card was supposed to go into an envelope I went easier on the flower cluster than in the past card, but it still has a nice dimension:

And here’s what I used for this version of the card:

And how about you? Do you “visit” your past projects sometimes, and if yes, do you change much?

See you soon!

For this Layout I did some fuzzy cutting. The exotic sheet from the tropical collection is just perfect for this.

I love fussy cutting , I think it’s very relaxing , and it looks great on layout and cards.

Here are some close ups.

 

 

The chippies I used are from Scrapaholics I colored them with some acrylic paint.

I found the picture of the cute little girl at pinterest.

Thank you for visiting, I hope you like my layout,

Christmas Morning Shadow Box – Home Decor

Hello friends.  Jennifer Snyder here today to share a cozy home decor piece for the holidays.

As the weather turns colder, my creativity also starts to focus on Christmas and holiday cheer. I took this opportunity to create a Christmas home decor piece using Maja Design’s Traditional Christmas season.

My shadowbox used a combination of the 12×12 papers and 6×6 papers from the collection:  Singing Carols, Santa’s Elves, Family Gathering, By the Fireplace.

Singing carols-bs

 

I used the collection as the wall paper  for the Christmas scene, for the gift wrapping and for the adorable stocking hanging from the festive mantle. The 6×6 paper pads are great when making these smaller items.

 

 

Doesn’t the 6×6 Traditional Christmas collection make the most beautiful gift wrap?

Thank you for joining us today.  Happy crafting.
