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! 🙂

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,

Thank You Teacher Chocolate Boxes

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

In a couple of days Polish students celebrate Teacher’s Day. It’s a good occasion to thank all those who care about our kids’ education, also in those difficult times of online schooling. And so I created two chocolate boxes to present to teachers instead of regular thank you cards 🙂

I made the book cover-like packages using cardstock and decorated them with the Miles Apart papers. Boxes have a mirror composition and different colour palettes, but otherwise are alike 🙂 Both feature large flower clusters with hand-cut tags and pearl brads on the front part:

Inside I added small pockets to put a bar of chocolate into and a large tag to write in wishes (or perhaps draw something, as these are meant for the kindergarten teachers):

I kept the design here very simple, letting the papers play the first fiddle, but I couldn’t resist adding these cute doilies 🙂

I hope the teachers who are going to receive these chocolate boxes would appreciate the gift as well as feel appreciated!

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; brads: Latarnia Morska; ribbon: Rayher, dies: Cheery Lynn Design, Craft&You.

That’s all for today, see you soon!

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

Easter passed, so that means we’re now entering the First Communion season which in Poland is usually in May. And so cardmakers are busy with making invitations and cards or other keepsakes. Today I bring you a First Communion exploding box:

I used papers from the Miles Apart collection, selecting neutral creams and greens so that the box can be given either to a boy or a girl. I decorated the lid with a stamped and embossed sentiment and a flower cluster. The outer walls feature two gorgeous damask patterns:

Once opened, the box reveals inner walls covered with delicate srping leaves pattern of the Be Safe sheet.

I decorated the walls with a die-cut Host with some vine leaves and flowers, a stamped Eucharistic song:

… a pocket for money or a small gift and stamped wishes:

In the centre I put a chipboard Eucharistic chalice deocrated with flowers:

I really like how delicate patterns and subtle colours of the papers provided approriate background for white and gold decor of the box!

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: CreaLies, my stash; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; stamps: Agateria, Lemonade; chipboard: Scrapiniec; washi tape: Dekoracyjna Taśma.

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

Hello sweet Maja fans,

I hope you and your loved ones are safe.

I hope you had a wonderful and happy Christmas , dispite  it was a little differend than normal.

This Is a repost  , It was on the blog earlier but , some how It dissapeared , so here it is again.

these are 3 gift wrappings I made for christmas presents , I can tell you now it was a great succes. the loved the wrapping as much as the in inside

 

This was an empty container from scent sticks that I altered with the Traditional Christmas Collection.

This is perfect gift wrapping for a small bottle of wine , a nice scarf, t”shirt or something like that.

 

The top of the lid. I made some flowers  using papertrey ink dies.

I hang a label pocket with some labels in it for a personal message.. I Looooove those little gnomes.

The pocket label is made with a die from gummiapan.

I have two gamer kids and the both asked game giftcards.. most boring gift to give , but the buy their games digital.

For my daughter I made this card because I bought her gamecard online ,and only got the code so (It’s non essential so not sold in a physical shop. )

I wrote that inside this card and put that in a gift envelope I made earlier.

For my son I made this gift card box. His card I bought just before the closed the non essential shops.

On top there is a little envelope with a little card in it saying happy gaming.

This is the inside of the box with the card.

I hope you like what I made for you and that I give you some last minute wrapping inspiration.

I wish you all Happy Holidays and see you next year.  Stay safe.
