Hello Sweet Maja Fans,

Lenet here today, I hope you all had a very nice , warm and festive Midwinter/Christmas /Yule or what you in your country or believes celebrate.

Today I have this gift card for you that I made for my daughter using the latest Christmas collection Happy Christmas.

This is the front,  the A gift for you sentiment  is made with  a Waltzingmouse stamp.

The card closes with a red and white bakers twine.

My kids are gamers so give them  a giftcard for , playstation ,STEAM or whatever they want . Because the don’t really sell real giftcards any more but give you an voucher instead.

So I made a little envelope containing the voucher with code to put in the giftcardholder , wich I made using a die from lawn fawn.

 

And of course I did some fussy cutting again. The Merry Christmas sentiment is a piece of the bottom strip of one of the papers.

I decided to make more christmas cards thru the year so I don’t have to do them all in a hurry at the end of the year.

Just so you know I’m not confusing dates or time of the year when you see me posting a christmas card in mits of summer

I hope you like this giftcard I made.

I wish you very happy holidays and hope to see you again soon.

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

Christmas is here! 🙂 This evening many people around the world will gather at their family tables to celebrate the Christmas Eve supper – something I always look forward to through the year. I love the atmosphere, the smells of delicious meals, the lights and the decor of the holidays. And today I bring you something I made to decorate my house – a hanging ornament:

 

Of course, I used the Happy Christmas collection 🙂 I die cut the ornament shape out of various papers and glued them together into an accordion:

…but went only half way through with it:

The other half is flat and decorated with stamps, poinsettias and snowflakes:

I also attached a small pearl and a tassel at the end:

As it is double-sided, it serves many purposes: you can hang it on the Christmas tree as a bauble or somewhere else in the house as a decor piece. And I really like how the accordion form showcases various paper patterns 🙂

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Spellbinders, Sizzix; stamps: Agateria; tassel: Marianne Design; pearls: my stash.

That’s my last post this year, so let me wish you a very merry and blessed Christmas, spent with loved ones, and all the best in the new year!

See you in January! 🙂

 

Hope Your Christmas is…

Hello sweet Maja fans,

Lenet here ,and today  bring you this Reveal wheel Christmascard using this years Christmas collection: Happy Christmas and the reveal wheel dies and sentiments from lawn fawn.

Fot the ones who are new to this, On the righthand side you see a half circle cut out with a scallop piece .

The scallop piece is a part of a hidden wheel you can turn it by gently turning the scallo part.

the little red frame will show a differend sentiment while you turn the wheel.

If you scrolldown you can see all the differend sentiments.

I love interactive cards, the just bring that little extra .

I also did quite alot of glittering . Especially on the background. Every star and snowflake has a sparkle .

Unfortunatly you can’t see it on the picture and I couln’t manage to catch it with my camera, but here and there you see a little sparkle.

so this is the card I bring you to day, in the pictures you can see the sentiment wich you get to see in the window if you turn the wheel.

 

I hope you like this card as much as I do. Enjoy your days before Christmas, and hope to see youback soon.

 

Merry Christmas

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

No, I’m not here to wish you a happy Christmas – not yet 🙂 That’s just the title of the layout I made using our festive collection Happy Christmas:

When I saw this gingerbread cookies paper I instantly thought of this photo of my elder son from preschool, when he discovered the fun of playing with gingerbread dough (which was officially called “baking” :D) But I also wanted to showcase more beautiful patterns and motives, so I used the gingerbread paper for the middle panel that I placed against a darker star-patterned sheet. I used a signature strip at the top pf the layout and since I love the gnomes motif too I just cut it out from its original paper and added it to my page 🙂

I die-cut other decorative elements from various papers, as well as the heart and star shapes from kraft cardstock and added some patterns with white gel pen to make them look like gingerbread cookies 🙂

I also added some crystal stones, an art clay angel and glitter snowflakes to finish the layout. And I really like the way it turned out!

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Magnolia, Craft&You Design, CreaLies; border punch: Martha Stewart; angel mold: Prosvet; crystals: my stash.

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you soon!

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.
