Hello sweet Maja fans,

Lenet here on this grey and rainy day. Well that’s what the weather is like here in the Netherlands.

Perfect weather  to put on your warm and comfy homewear, get a big mug of something nice and warm to drink and get crafting.

Today I bring you these three christmas cards.

For these I used the natural/craft colors of the 6×6 paperpad of this years Christmas collection Happy Christmas.

These are not the normal colors I would use for my christmas crafting, but I love how they turned out.

And who doesn’t love  christmas or  yule gnomes ?Well I do !

And I love these little guys, the are chippies from Scrapaholics,

I mixed some acrylic paint in the colors of the papers I used and painted them .

When they were dry I gave them a layer of clear embossing powder to give the colors and the little guys some dept and shine.

I did all the stitching by hand.

And here you can take a closer look at  each of the cards.

I hope you like my little gnome Christmas cards,

Thank you for visiting and hope to see you again soon.

Hello Maja Design Fans,

I’ve got 2 Merry Christmas cards to share with you today

 

I made them with the brand new Merry Christmas Collection, and  funny thing but it has plenty of Merry Christmas quotes that you can easily use for so many cards or Christmas projects.

I combined the papers of 12×12″ with 6×6 paper pad. and no doubt couldn’t resist to fussy cut those funny Santas

I added glittered cardstock and the traditional colors for this holiday started to shine more bright.

For my second card I added a bit of chocolate color, so cozy and warm and it reminds me the ginger biscuits for sure.

Hope you are all busy with Christmas preparations , keep safe.

Hello Sweet maja Fans,

Today I bring you this little project made with last years christmas collection Traditional Christmas. . I love this collection with it’s cute christmas gnomes theme.

We have a magicalnew Christmas collection but I had not recieved it yet when I made this.

I did a lot of fuzzy cutting for this one. It’s a matchbox with a tiny shakerdome on top of it.

To make this I used the matchbox die and the mini domes from Tim Holtz.

 

 

A close up from the shaker dome , with the tiny gnome and some glittersnow in it.

When you open the match box you wil find some  little labels in it , wich are perfect to use as little giftlabels for the christmas presents.

Here you see the labels , with again fussy cutting.and gnomes.

I hope you like my little project.

Stay safe and hope to see you back soon.

Christmas Shaker Cards

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

Today I bring you a set of two Christmas cards in which the focus is on shaker box elements. For both cards I used Maja Design latest collection, Happy Christmas 🙂

 

In the first card I used the top layer for a shaker box bauble to make a kind of diorama inside it, mounting particular layers of hand-cut elements.  I then added a cluster made with die-cut poinsettia and wintery leaves and an embossed stamped sentiment:

For the second card I used the full shaker box that I filled with sequins and closed with a paper bottom, but as I used an additional layer with snowflakes forg the frame, the finished box was quite dimensional. So I cut out a circle in the card top layer and placed the shaker inside, to lower it a bit. Thus the shaker is still quite deep, but it doesn’t interfere with the card easily going into an envelope 🙂

For several years now I try to make dimensional holiday cards that still go into envelopes, and I’m really happy with the way these two turned out! I also love how beautiful the papers look, giving the cards this signature Maja vintage look 🙂

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Craft&You Design, Magnolia; stamps, chipboard: Agateria; sequins: my stash.

Do you you shaker boxes in your projects?

See you soon!

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

It’s here, it’s here! Maja Design latest release, the Happy Christmas collection!

The traditional mix of green, red and brown, beautiful patterns and the signature Maja vintage look 🙂 I just got my DT box and couldn’t stop myself from immediately making some cards!

I chose a very simple design for my cards as I wanted to showcase the beautiful patterns of small gingerbread cookies and Christmas baubles. So I decided to put the stamped and embossed sentiments on the background paper and die cut windows in the top layers to make them visible. To this I added hand-coloured stamped images and a chipboard frame for the first card:

And for the second card I used a die-cut poinsettia:

 

For the bauble on this card I also used a little bit of paper piecing – can you see it? 🙂

I really love how hte cards turned out dimensional and yet still easily go into envelopes, ready to be sent out 🙂

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

 

Other: stamps, chipboard, ep: Agateria; dies: Magnolia; snow balls: DP Craft.

That’s all for today, see you soon!
