Hello Sweet maja Fans,

Today I bring you this little project made with last years christmas collection Traditional Christmas. . I love this collection with it’s cute christmas gnomes theme.

We have a magicalnew Christmas collection but I had not recieved it yet when I made this.

I did a lot of fuzzy cutting for this one. It’s a matchbox with a tiny shakerdome on top of it.

To make this I used the matchbox die and the mini domes from Tim Holtz.

 

 

A close up from the shaker dome , with the tiny gnome and some glittersnow in it.

When you open the match box you wil find some  little labels in it , wich are perfect to use as little giftlabels for the christmas presents.

Here you see the labels , with again fussy cutting.and gnomes.

I hope you like my little project.

Stay safe and hope to see you back soon.

Christmas Shaker Cards

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

Today I bring you a set of two Christmas cards in which the focus is on shaker box elements. For both cards I used Maja Design latest collection, Happy Christmas 🙂

 

In the first card I used the top layer for a shaker box bauble to make a kind of diorama inside it, mounting particular layers of hand-cut elements.  I then added a cluster made with die-cut poinsettia and wintery leaves and an embossed stamped sentiment:

For the second card I used the full shaker box that I filled with sequins and closed with a paper bottom, but as I used an additional layer with snowflakes forg the frame, the finished box was quite dimensional. So I cut out a circle in the card top layer and placed the shaker inside, to lower it a bit. Thus the shaker is still quite deep, but it doesn’t interfere with the card easily going into an envelope 🙂

For several years now I try to make dimensional holiday cards that still go into envelopes, and I’m really happy with the way these two turned out! I also love how beautiful the papers look, giving the cards this signature Maja vintage look 🙂

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Craft&You Design, Magnolia; stamps, chipboard: Agateria; sequins: my stash.

Do you you shaker boxes in your projects?

See you soon!

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

It’s here, it’s here! Maja Design latest release, the Happy Christmas collection!

The traditional mix of green, red and brown, beautiful patterns and the signature Maja vintage look 🙂 I just got my DT box and couldn’t stop myself from immediately making some cards!

I chose a very simple design for my cards as I wanted to showcase the beautiful patterns of small gingerbread cookies and Christmas baubles. So I decided to put the stamped and embossed sentiments on the background paper and die cut windows in the top layers to make them visible. To this I added hand-coloured stamped images and a chipboard frame for the first card:

And for the second card I used a die-cut poinsettia:

 

For the bauble on this card I also used a little bit of paper piecing – can you see it? 🙂

I really love how hte cards turned out dimensional and yet still easily go into envelopes, ready to be sent out 🙂

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

 

Other: stamps, chipboard, ep: Agateria; dies: Magnolia; snow balls: DP Craft.

That’s all for today, see you soon!

Hello Maja Friends,

October is almost over, so it’s to start Christmas preparations. And I like this time when I look through all Maja Design Christmas collections. It’s a hard choice, so I hope to try each one and to create many cards.

For today’s post I chose Traditional Christmas collection from the previous year.

I enjoyed the process of fussy cutting the elves

I like traditional colors of this collection and especially those cute elves.

I embellished my cards with Christmas die cuts and like that used only papers for them.

Those elves are perfect for decorating not only kids projects.

 

Products used:

Spellbinders ( Amazing Paper Grace) Dies

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

I hope you had a great Christmas time spent joyfully (and safely) with your loved ones.

Today I’m bringing you a holiday album made for a couple who loves to travel. The idea was to combine Christmas papers with travel motives, as the album was meant for some most precious summer trips photos. And so I reached for Holiday in the Alps papers to make a small photo album:

On the front cover I placed a die-cut Christmas bauble decorated with various leaves, handmade foamiran poinsettias and printed ribbon. I also added a wind rose compass die cut from mirror gold cardstock. The wire is decorated with riboons and some little bells.

For the inside pages I used matting tags for photos that I decorated with little cluster ornaments and the travel motives are stamped in the background:

Here are some close-ups:

I hope the couple who received this album liked it – and that you like it too 🙂

This is the list of supplies I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Magnolia, Sizzix, Cheery Lynn Designs, Craft&You Design; stamps: Tim Holtz; bells: Dp Craft; sequins, ribbon: my stash.

 

As you can see, even using few supplies, with right papers you can create a nice little photo album 🙂 Try it!
