Welcome Maja Friends!
I’m also still creating with our latest amazing ‘Celebration’ collection. As I saw this elegant dancing pair I thought on our annual SemperOperaball in Dresden. It’s a very special and magic event.
”Despite low temperatures, thousands of people will take to the theatre square in front of the Semper Opera House to celebrate the Semper Open Air Ball. While guests watch the gala programme inside, up to 15,000 partygoers will be singing and dancing outside in front of the opera house. In rain, freezing temperatures or under starlit skies – the Semper Open Air Ball transforms the square into the world’s largest dance floor for the locals and guests.”
Therefore I was inspired to make a home decoration piece, it’s a cloche in romantic vintage style.
How you can see you will need not so much materials, main thing is the paper sheet ‘Ballroom dancing’, old music paper, Distress inks and some embellishments how like flowers, lace, feathers and what do you want.
I used as basic a star from a cutting die. After I cut out the pair, I curved the motif with a knitting needle and folded the feets to glue them on. The paper from Maja Design is so stable that it stands alone, but you can stick to support a few more blooms from behind against it.
Celebration 12 x 12
Now you just need to stick the decoration on.
I rolled up the notebook paper, distressed the edges and created some paper sticks.
I highlighted some places with Stickles ‘Baby Blue’ from Ranger and a wonderful blue feather suitable to the ball gown.
… and your new eyecatcher is ready 🙂
Thanks for your visit!

Hi everyone! I have a decorated paper bag to show you today. I have used red, gorgeous papers from Maja Design and the Summertime Collection. When I have planned to use the colour red, this is my favourite collection to use.
I have cut out different parts by using the Maja Papers.
I have also coloured some seambinding ribbons to match the papers. I have sprayed them with water mixed with Distress Ink, re-inkers (Aged Mahogany and Fired Brick).
The image is from Magnolia and the Get Well Collection. And I have added som Frantage and Liquid pearls around her.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I have added corrugated paper, a doily, lace and several layers of papers underneath the image.
Here is the list of papers used:

Thank you so much for visiting the blog today!
Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
Today is St. Valentine’s Day, a celebration of love and devotion. What a better way to celebrate love and devotion than a marriage? And what a better way to celebrate a marriage than to use the Celebration collection? 🙂 And so I combined the two and created this wedding exploding box:
Perhaps the colour palette I chose is not a typical wedding set of colours, but they look so elegant to me! For the outer sides I decided on the dark brown roses pattern and added a mauve-sand flower cluster on the top lid:
Traditionally, inside walls are decorated with delicate patterned papers and have little theme pockets to put money gifts into: for a new house, for a honey moon, for a crib and the fourth wall is for writing in wishes:
In the centre I placed an intricate chipboard cake that I decorated with a lace bow and mini roses in matching colours:
I really like the way the box turned out, elegant and light! What do you think?
And here’s the list of my supplies:
Maja Design papers:
All dressed up bs
The table is set bs
Mono Celebration-Muted Fuchsia
Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: Spellbinders; chipboard: Wycinanka.pl, ribbon, lace: my stash.
And that’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you soon!
Welcome Maja friends!
I love fireplaces especially on christmas time, it’s a wonderful tradition to hang up socks for every family member. Unfortunately I haven’t a fireplace and so I decided to make this in a small format.
I used papers from various christmas/ winter collections from Maja Design
Want to see how they are made? Here I have some photos from the making.
Steps and tips
As basic an old black wooden frame and the ‘Gnistra’ paper sheet as wonderful neutral background
added with some torned pieces from old music paper, inked with Distress walnut stain
the highlight was the fireplace.
I saw some months ago an idea on Pinterest where a simple plastic frame was used,
I was impressed and went in search for the right frame.
I found this in a One Euro Store, the frame was square
and so I just had to remove the bottom part
really simple, but a cool effect!
