Christmas Album

Posted by Maja Nowak

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

It’s Christmas time! The most wonderful time of the year, filled with joy and love (or at least, it should be). In the evening many of us will sit at the table with their loved ones to celebrate Christmas Eve, go to church at midnight for the Holy Mass of Christ’s Birth, enjoy presents and sing carols 🙂

And so in anticipation of those beautiful moments I created an album for photos that will preserve precious memories:

I used a ready made album base and decorated it with papers from the Holiday In The Alps collection. I first applied a stencil pattern on the linen cover and then used pieces of papers and added a flower cluster:

At first I was going to decorate the front cover and just layer some papers on the accordion-joined pages inside and decorate them in detail when the photos come, but then I just got carried away… 🙂 The elements on each page are slightly raised so that I can slide in photos later.

I really love the way it turned out and can’t wait to fill it with family Christmas photos!

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Craft&You Design, Magnolia, Spellbinders, Sizzix; metal embellishments: Mitform; button:; ribbon: Dovecraft; glitter: Nuvo; sequins, cheesecloth, string – my stash.


And since this is my last post this year, I want to wish you the happiest Christmas, blessed with joy and peace and all the best in the New Year!
