Hello Maja friends,

I just can’t believe it’s 2016 already 2015 flew bye so fast. It was a great year for me scrappy wise and I know for sure 2016 is going to be too although it started of on the wrong foot due to health problems. Hopefully it will go better soon because I miss my scrapbook room very much. Today I had some time in there and created this layout for today’s post. For this layout I used the beautiful newest collection “Home for the Holidays” this collection is so versatile you can use it for many different themed projects.


On this layout I used a bunch of paper layers, Creative Embellishments chipboard and Tresors de Luxe lace to alter the already pretty papers. On the picture you see my two men ice skating a couple of years back when it was still cold and freezing in January for this year it’s a very warm winter with still  temperatures above 5 degrees and someday’s above 8 degrees. I have to say I really love that because I’m not a fan of winter although it makes great layouts.

All the chipboard pieces were treated with gesso, embossing powders and glitter stickles. I also so used my sewing machine a couple of times to stitch the edges of the papers and picture. I really adore working with my sewing machine because I think it add some much to your work.
