Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the new collection Joyous Winterdays. I chose a photomontage I’ve made.

The Lady of Chenonceau by Pascale B.

First I primed the background with clear gesso. Next, I added some colors with different inks, paints, and Magical: I used different stamps to add the inks, I splattered some paints, …

Next, I mixed a white acrylic paint with texture powder to add a design with a stencil.

I die cut some pine needles in the monochromes shades of Joyous Winterdays. I die cut also some snowflakes and mistletoe in a watercolor paper. I painted the snowflakes with pearl and gold paints.

I sprayed the mistletoe and the white flowers with a spray, made of gold opal magic mica powder, to add some shimmer.

I glued all the embellishments with a 3D gel. And to finish the layout I added some glitter and microbeads.

Hello our blog friends. This year I have to create cards for Christmas a little bit earlier. I planned to have holiday at the beginning of December, that’s why my season starts right now . Here is my today’s inspiration : Christmas CardsChristmas Cards Christmas Cards Christmas Cards Christmas Cards Christmas Cards Christmas Cards

Like you could see some of my cards are full of layers and flowers, some not. The reason is really simple – some of them I/ or my family will send by post. It is much easier do not have so much volume then.

Let me know if you like my inspiration, please.  Hug, Paulina Padoriaa-sign


Joyous Winterdays Snowflake Cards

  Jennifer Snyder here to share a joyous winter card featuring the gorgeous holiday/winter collection from Maja Design, “Joyous Winterdays”.

This collection, shown below, is a perfect Holiday/Winter combo with the warm traditional Christmas colors paired the blues and creams for those winter day projects.  This means you have a holiday collection that you can continue to use well past Christmas.  Actually all Maja Design papers have patterns that can be used year round.  This helps make your paper investment such a wise option.
 The Joyous Winterdays papers used on this card are:
Chilly (B-side)
I am absolutely in love with the delicate designs of the papers, especially the one called “Chilly”.
You can clearly see this pattern and color isn’t limiting in terms of season.


I paired these papers with some new dies and stamps from Spellbinders -Hannah Elise Layering Frame and the Spellbinders Snowflakes Holidays die and stamp set.  I’d say it’s a perfect match.
I can’t begin to tell you how much joy this collection brings me.  I love each and every sheet.  Because so many of us tend to hoard the paper we adore instead of actually using the papers, one might ask, if I love the paper so much, how can I possibly CUT IT UP???
Well friends, papers and cards and your lovely projects are meant to be shared.  If the Maja collections bring a smile to your face while creating with them, imagine how they will truly light up the face of someone you love when they receive your card or project.
So go ahead – CUT those papers.  Use those papers.  Share those papers.  That’s how we show our love for Maja Design.
You can shop for Maja Design paper collections using the Store Finder link found here.
You can see the entire Joyous Winterdays collection here.
Thanks for sharing a piece of your day.  Jennifer-sign

‘Tis The Season

Hello my dear friends!!!

It’s Mary here with you today and I have a new layout to share with you.

A Christmassy page this time, as the Christmas season is finally near us, my friends. Oh, I love so much this season and I’m already feeling festive. And the new gorgeous Christmas collection ”Joyous Winterdays”, that I received a few days ago, have strengthened my festive feeling alot!


As you may already know, I love finding my photos on Pinterest and this time, while I was searching I found that beautiful wintery photo. So, I choose two papers that was matching perfectly and combined them with some beautiful flowers, a few Christmas chipboards and Christmas embellishments. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.


For my background, I used the ”Pick a Tree” paper and made a layer on it with the ”Glisten” paper. First, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. I continued by coloring my page with Lindy’s sprays ”Green with Envy Green”, and ”Grab a Guy Gold”.


I heat embossed all the chipboards with the ”Tannenbaum Green Gold” Lindy’s embossing powder. As usual all the chipboards I used are 2crafty.


When everything was glued down, I used snowflake paste here and there with a paintbrush to add a real snow effect to my pagect and made some splatters with white acrylic artists ink.

That’s all for today, my friends!

Thank you for stopping by!
