Hello, our blog fans. You haven’s seen me for a while here. I’m really sorry but I was busy with the school projects and the work. Today I decided to show my first inspiration created for Christmas with the “Denim&Friends” Collection. May some of you missed my work here. I’m extremely happy to be back! Ok. Let’s show what I’ve created for you:
Hello Sweet Maja fans.
When summer is at it’s end I always get Christmas jitters.
Although every season and holiday has it’s own charm, I really love Christmas.
Me and my kids love to snuggle up with a warm blanket on the couch, and watch every Christmas-movie we can find.
With Christmas jitters comes Christmas crafting. So today I bring you this Christmas tag made with leftovers from the Vintage Frost Basic Collection.
I hate throwing away designpapers I love , so i safe them for smaller projects like this.
For the bottom of the base tag I used the Martha Stewart doily punch. one of my all time favorite edgepunches.
On top of that I laid a die cut made with Romantic Rectangles nestabilities by Spellbinders.
Than I started stacking papers till I like it and stick them together with foamtape.
I always keep some space between the edges of my papers so I can tuck some embellishments or or small papers between the layers.
To finish it an eyelet in the top with a piece o flace thru it so it can hang .
This label will sure be a part of my Christmas decorations. I love how it turned out.
The Snow flake die I used is from the winter trails collection by Studio Light.
Thank you very much for visiting make sure you come back for more wonderful projects made by the other Maja girls to inspire you.
Hello again dear Maja fans.
We still have a amazing summer over here in the Netherlands with lots of sun and warm temperatures. They are even talking about a heatwave next week.
So in order to cool down a little , I made this Christmas card , you never start too early making them right? Maybe this year I will be done in time instead of making them at the last minute.
This one I made with some leftovers from projects I made earlier with the Vintage Frost Collection.
To create snow the snow on the edges I used Finnabair art extravagance paper texture paste.
To create dimension on the card I used foamtape to stick the pieces together.
Thank you very much for your visit, I hope I was able to give you some inspiration with this card.
Welcome Maja friends!
I love fireplaces especially on christmas time, it’s a wonderful tradition to hang up socks for every family member. Unfortunately I haven’t a fireplace and so I decided to make this in a small format.
I used papers from various christmas/ winter collections from Maja Design
Want to see how they are made? Here I have some photos from the making.
Steps and tips
As basic an old black wooden frame and the ‘Gnistra’ paper sheet as wonderful neutral background
added with some torned pieces from old music paper, inked with Distress walnut stain
the highlight was the fireplace.
I saw some months ago an idea on Pinterest where a simple plastic frame was used,
I was impressed and went in search for the right frame.
I found this in a One Euro Store, the frame was square
and so I just had to remove the bottom part
really simple, but a cool effect!

Hello Maja Fans,
Christmas is right behind the corner and I guess some of you may still need a few cards to make for their friends.
Today I am going to share a bunch of cards that can be given to men
Well sometimes it is so tricky to create the card with no flowers, lace and bows. However everyone can manage with it, indeed.
I started with creating my background for the cards using the paper from the 6×6 paper pad of Joyous Winterday, and then added the strip at the bottom, I stitched 2 of them together
I also added the striped ribbon, it adds the accent and looks like an eye catching detail
and of course I used the images of St.Nicholas
I added a few paper layers around the image, that I die cut.
When you create a masculine card you mostly choose the simple shapes for your dies, but actually you can add some intricate detail too.
and even crochet snowflake can look good for such cards
I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
