Hello Everyone <3

Today it is me, Silje Kristin that will inspire you, with something I’ve never have done before.

This weekend I took a trip down to southern Norway, and visited a lovely town called Tønsberg. I traveled on Thursday to have the entire weekend along with scrapping happy ladies. I’m having a great time, and some great days here at the scrapbooking event. I have meet many new and wonderful scrappers and enjoyed hours after hours with papers.

Do you remember my last post? I told you I’d show you one big project. I was then in a scrapbooking event here in my home town, Bodø. That weekend I spent 21 hours making something I’ve never tried before. The inspiration I got from an intro of a TV series and the winter theme.


I decided to create one ferris wheel. The ferris wheel is made without a tutorial. I used about five hours to make the two wheels. Around the wheels I have attached white pearl string. The ferris wheel is assembled in the same as the wheels. Also these, I’ve created without a tutorial.

In between the wheels I have attached paper straws, which I have distressed with Distress Mini Ink. On every paper straws, a small trolley hanging down. The trolleys are made of four circles. I’ve used a thin white tape around, to create a special effect.

On the front on the wheels, I have some big snow crystals, these are wood from Wycinanka. I have covered them with snow and glitter from Distress Ink.

The details I have made and placed around the ferris wheel are made by hand. Here you will find shoes, snowmen, christmas trees, deer, christmas gifts and bullfinch.

The shoes are painted white, and then I have some snow and glitter on them <3

I have made two snowmen, which are made with a tutorial that I have made myself. Both snowmen are covered with snow and glitter, that you can see is everywhere on the project.

Behind the ferris wheel and at the front, I have some deer. This is a dies set from Marianne Design.

On the green chrismas trees I’ve used glitter and snow.  In and on the trees you can see christmas baubles in blue and  bullfinch.

The bullfinch is a dies set from kaBoks, this is one set of three size and they are perfect to have between flowers, or as I have done, glued them on the christmas trees <3

The final details of the project are tree packages in three sizes. Each package has its own tag, ribbon and snow <3

If you put all the details together, you have a lovely winter wonder land, with wonderful snow and glitter <3

The entire project is made on the back of a shelf. In the corners I have attached silver feet and atop of the brown carton I have covered it all with white snow and glitter.

I have used paper from two diffrent collections from Maja Design.



I hope you are inspired to create your own winter wonderland <3

    That ferris wheel is to die for. No chance of us making it as our store isn’t very faithful about ordering either Maja or Pion paper. She isn’t very fond of either company so ( I don’t like, I don’t order).

  • This is so beautiful, what a lot of work. I like these winterwonderland projects and I adore the papers of Maja.(which I sell im my (web)store. I can’t wait to see the new line of papers.
