Merry Christmas

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

No, I’m not here to wish you a happy Christmas – not yet 🙂 That’s just the title of the layout I made using our festive collection Happy Christmas:

When I saw this gingerbread cookies paper I instantly thought of this photo of my elder son from preschool, when he discovered the fun of playing with gingerbread dough (which was officially called “baking” :D) But I also wanted to showcase more beautiful patterns and motives, so I used the gingerbread paper for the middle panel that I placed against a darker star-patterned sheet. I used a signature strip at the top pf the layout and since I love the gnomes motif too I just cut it out from its original paper and added it to my page 🙂

I die-cut other decorative elements from various papers, as well as the heart and star shapes from kraft cardstock and added some patterns with white gel pen to make them look like gingerbread cookies 🙂

I also added some crystal stones, an art clay angel and glitter snowflakes to finish the layout. And I really like the way it turned out!

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Magnolia, Craft&You Design, CreaLies; border punch: Martha Stewart; angel mold: Prosvet; crystals: my stash.

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