Hello Sweet maja Fans,

Today I bring you this little project made with last years christmas collection Traditional Christmas. . I love this collection with it’s cute christmas gnomes theme.

We have a magicalnew Christmas collection but I had not recieved it yet when I made this.

I did a lot of fuzzy cutting for this one. It’s a matchbox with a tiny shakerdome on top of it.

To make this I used the matchbox die and the mini domes from Tim Holtz.

 

 

A close up from the shaker dome , with the tiny gnome and some glittersnow in it.

When you open the match box you wil find some  little labels in it , wich are perfect to use as little giftlabels for the christmas presents.

Here you see the labels , with again fussy cutting.and gnomes.

I hope you like my little project.

Stay safe and hope to see you back soon.

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

It’s here, it’s here! Maja Design latest release, the Happy Christmas collection!

The traditional mix of green, red and brown, beautiful patterns and the signature Maja vintage look 🙂 I just got my DT box and couldn’t stop myself from immediately making some cards!

I chose a very simple design for my cards as I wanted to showcase the beautiful patterns of small gingerbread cookies and Christmas baubles. So I decided to put the stamped and embossed sentiments on the background paper and die cut windows in the top layers to make them visible. To this I added hand-coloured stamped images and a chipboard frame for the first card:

And for the second card I used a die-cut poinsettia:

 

For the bauble on this card I also used a little bit of paper piecing – can you see it? 🙂

I really love how hte cards turned out dimensional and yet still easily go into envelopes, ready to be sent out 🙂

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

 

Other: stamps, chipboard, ep: Agateria; dies: Magnolia; snow balls: DP Craft.

That’s all for today, see you soon!

Hello friends.  Jennifer Snyder here to share some Oriental lily florals with you stuck inside  wellington boots (wellies).

I thought Maja Design’s Tropical Garden was the perfect collection to celebrate Spellbinders die collection. I bet you’ll agree my choice was spot on!

In addition to the coordinating Monochrome collection “Shades of Tropical”, here are the papers used today:

Confirmation Card Revisited

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

A couple of years ago on one of the craft forums I found a challenge called “Project Revisited”. The challenge meant that you recreate a past project of yours, whether introducing some changes or not. I thought this was great for beginners to check on their progress, but also for any crafter, just for fun. And so with a recent Confirmation card order I thought of this challenge and recreated a card I made a couple of years ago.

I used the Miles Apart collection for the card and kept the design mostly unchanged, but while I used just Monochrome papers then, I decided to go for a patterned paper this time, choosing my favourite rose bouquets pattern and I just LOVE how fresh and delicate it looks!

In the previous card the die-cut doilies were supposed to add some texture and interest to the background, and here I found they provide the structure for the design and make the background less busy. I think it’s awesome how the same element can have opposite functions when used in different contexts!

 

As the card was supposed to go into an envelope I went easier on the flower cluster than in the past card, but it still has a nice dimension:

And here’s what I used for this version of the card:

And how about you? Do you “visit” your past projects sometimes, and if yes, do you change much?

See you soon!

Christmas Morning Shadow Box – Home Decor

Hello friends.  Jennifer Snyder here today to share a cozy home decor piece for the holidays.

As the weather turns colder, my creativity also starts to focus on Christmas and holiday cheer. I took this opportunity to create a Christmas home decor piece using Maja Design’s Traditional Christmas season.

My shadowbox used a combination of the 12×12 papers and 6×6 papers from the collection:  Singing Carols, Santa’s Elves, Family Gathering, By the Fireplace.

Singing carols-bs

 

I used the collection as the wall paper  for the Christmas scene, for the gift wrapping and for the adorable stocking hanging from the festive mantle. The 6×6 paper pads are great when making these smaller items.

 

 

Doesn’t the 6×6 Traditional Christmas collection make the most beautiful gift wrap?

Thank you for joining us today.  Happy crafting.
