Hello Sweet Majafans.

First I want to  wish you a very Happy New year. I hope all your wishes will come true.

For my first post this year I bring you a wintercard.

 

I used a piece of the Sparkle sheet from the Joyous Winterdays  on the top and used Monochromes-shades of the Alps -Snow

for a double mat.

I used it to make the snowflake as well . this one is made with the Snowflake rosette die from Tim Holtz, the beautiful ornament behind it

is made with a die from Marianne design Creatables .

The flower and ribbon are from my own stash . The Winter Wishes sentiment is a stamp from Waltzing Mouse.

 

Here A close up , as you can see I used a lot of glitterglue to get a sparkly snow effect. this is done using Nuvo Glitter Accents.

The little bling heart and  the flowercenter are also from Nuvo.

Thank you for visiting hope you like what I made for you .

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

New year, new beginnings, they say 🙂 So for my first post in the new year I bring you a first project I made using the brand new collection, Little Street Cafe. I fell in love with this collection the very moment I opened my DT box – what a treat! One of the more vibrant colour palettes in the Maja stock, with juicy yellows and oranges paired with deep burgundy and sand beige, and all while keeping the classic vintage Maja style with its charasteristic plaids, stripes and flower designs. And don’t forget the ephemera sheet! Soo beautiful! I already have some ideas for this collection, but today I bring you a card for grandparents, as is Poland we’re going to celebrate Grandma’s Day on January 21st and Grandpa’s Day the next day.

I must admit I had difficulties choosing the papers for my first project, as all are equally tempting 😉 but eventually I decided upon on of the plaids and flower patterns for the backgound. For the top layer I cut out a panel with a street view – so perfect for the stamped image I chose for my focal element:

I added stamped sentiments and an acrylic heart that also matches the papers’ colours:

The flower pattern on the background paper gave me the idea for the mini roses cluster I added in the lower corners:

The card turned out slightly too dimensional to go into an envelope, so I added a card box too:

I really love how this card turned out, with its vibrant colours and beautiful paper patterns!

Here’s my supply list:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Penny Black, Lemonade; dies: CreaLies; chipboard: Scrapiniec; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; markers: Kuretake.

 

Do you celebrate Grandparent’s Day/s in your countries?

See you soon!

 Are you more the classic christmas color type – Red, green, gold –

or maybe more the winter type in blue shades and silver?

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

If you still celebrate the sadly vanishing tradition of sending Christmas cards, I guess it’s time to start to send them 🙂 And if you’re looking for some inspiration, let me share some shaped cards today:

I used the latest release, the Holiday In The Alps collection. It contains several papers in darkest colours of the set and featuring beautiful damask patterns. Here I took the navy blue paper, applied a white stencil pattern upon it – just look at the gorgeous contrast! – and added embellishments:

The flower cluster includes foamiran poinsettias I made myself 🙂 I also added a die-cut manger scene:

 

There’s also a brown damask paper in the set:

I paired it with the burgundy paper and added some colour-matchign embellishments, with art clay angels made with a mold:

 

And, last but not least, the burgundy version of the same pattern:

Here I applied a snowflake pattern upon the paper and added a chipboard quotation from a Polish Christmas song. Then I added my embellishments, including a large Prima poinsettia, my handmade foamiran poinsettia and some twigs and leaves die cut from glitter cardstocks.

And here’s the whole set:

 

I really like how they turned out, glimmering and festively rich 🙂 What do you think?

Here’s my list of supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stencils: Agateria, Heidi Swapp; flowers: Prima, handmade; dies: Marianne Design, Magnolia, Craft&You Design, Tim Holtz/Sizzix; chipboard: Scrapiniec; crystals, ribbon, mold: my stash.

 

That is all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later!

Hello Maja Friends,

1 day left and we will meet Winter and the most busy month of the year December.

It is never too early to start your Christmas preparations

 

Since I make some sweet gift for my friends and put the chocolate inside the cards, I decided to create simple boxes to hold the chocolate bars

I cut out the images of the lady from the brand new Holiday in the Alpes collection

I like this silver – blue – white palette I chose , it’s more traditional for me since my childhood and reminds me the heavy snow we had many many years ago in Belarus

So I used mostly white embellishments – crochet, flowers and and some silver accents.

and I love the quote
