Hello dear Maja friends!

Today two inspiration vintage christmas cards,

which I made with our latest Christmas/ Winter collection ‘Holidays in the alps’ .

 Are you more the classic christmas color type – Red, green, gold –

or maybe more the winter type in blue shades and silver?

 

I think, there is something for every type in our paper collection.

Hi everyone! Here I am with a heart shaped Christmas card using gorgeous papers from the collection called Vintage Frost Basics.

I have cut out all the dies from the pattern papers. Here you can see tones, music stand and postmarks. I have coloured the Magnolia image to match with the papers in blue and brown.

For the postmarks I have used the sheet called 2nd of December.

And here is the music stand. I have added a little angel above.

I really enjoyed making this card, using some of my favourite colours, and adding the notes around the singing image. The image is coloured using Distress inks for my painting. I have also added some Fran-tage around the image, so it looks like the snow which is falling down. So I wish for a white Christmas.

Have you seen the new collection from MajaDesign? It is called Little street Cafe.

I have made some products with these papers lately, and here is my first. A birthday tag.

I love the fun colours, they just make me smile, like this image here.

Here I have used: Tea please, Something sweet and Delisious.

Thank you so much for visting the MajaDesign blog!

With love,

Interactive christmas card

Hello Maja Friends,

1 day left and we will meet Winter and the most busy month of the year December.

It is never too early to start your Christmas preparations

 

Since I make some sweet gift for my friends and put the chocolate inside the cards, I decided to create simple boxes to hold the chocolate bars

I cut out the images of the lady from the brand new Holiday in the Alpes collection

I like this silver – blue – white palette I chose , it’s more traditional for me since my childhood and reminds me the heavy snow we had many many years ago in Belarus

So I used mostly white embellishments – crochet, flowers and and some silver accents.

and I love the quote

Christmas Slider Shaker Card by Lenet Mos

Hello sweet maja fans,

Lenet here and today I bring you this Christmas slider shakercard.

If you pull the bleu tap you can see the shaker part , with Santa in his sleigh on his way to deliver the presents.

I had this photo sleeve fuse tool from Becky Higgins in my toll drawer for awhile now and never used it, so I thought now is the perfect time to do something with it and so I made the shakerpocket using it.

Never thought it would be so fun and easy, I’m sure I will be using it more often now.

Here you have a closeup of the shakerpart.

For this card I used a combination of the 15×15 set and the 12by12 from the newest Holiday in the Alps collection.

For the snowflake behind the shaker I used the Snow sheet from the monochromes -Shades of the Alps.

I think it’s such a splendid idea to make the matching monochromes, now you have always the right color cardstock to go with your papers.

The Merry Christmas sentiment is from Scrapiniec.

Thank you very much for visiting the blog. I hope you like what I made for you.

Make sure you come back to see what the other maja girls have made for you.
