Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
The weather has been quite unsteady recently, with cold wind, freezing rain and snow mixed with beautiful sunshine, which is rather typical for this time of the year in Poland 🙂 And so it happens that I’m sharing a winter-time layout on a beautiful spring day! But even though I used a photo taken during Christmas and a winter collection, Holiday in the Alps, with Maja papers characteristic versatility it’s all universal.
I first applied some handwriting pattern with a stencil and gold pearl paste upon the background Monochrome paper and then added a layered cluster of paper pieces and hand-made tags to mat the photo:
I added some flowers in between the layers and some epoxy stickers that perfectly match the stencil paste. Then I arranged the title with alpha stickers mounted on foam:
I completed the page with some metal and art clay elements and sequins for a bit of subtle glam:
I often use flowers in boy layouts and so I did here and I think it still looks pretty masculine 🙂 What do you think?
Here’s what I used:
Maja Design papers:
Let it snow-bs
Shade of the Alps – Arctic
Shade of the Alps – Arctic-bs
Mono Celebration – Vintage Teal
Other: stencil: Agateria; paste: Stamperia; flowers: Blue Fern Studios, Wild Orchid Crafts; metal pieces: Mitform; stickers: October Afternoon, Heidi Swapp; sequins: DpCraft.
That’s all for today, have a nice weekend and stay safe!
Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog!
Today I bring you another love inspiration – though not about a romantic love, yet all the same beautiful 🙂
I made the layout using the Holiday in the Alps collection. I first applied heart garland pattern upon the background paper and then arranged the matting cluster of layered papers, hand cut tags and filigree chipboard doilies.
I added roses, a clock button and chipboard key and title word embossed with gold ep.
I finished my page off with metallic red pearls and matte gold sequins.
Here’s the list of my supplies:
Maja Desgin papers:
Other: stencil, chipboard pieces: Agateria; glitter paste: Pentart; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; punch: DP Craft; button: Prosvet.
I really like how the layout turned out, bright and cheerful, and I really how the versatility of Maja papers which can be used for various themes regardless of the collection theme!
That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you soon!
Welcome Maja friends!
Recently we have made a beautiful winter trip in the mountains ‘Harz’.
Snow and ice magically transformed the landscape into a winter fairy tale.
It’s still February
and winter has us in its grip with lots of snow and icy temperatures.
A winter where you look forward to spring all the more. Hopefully it will be soon!
I used some paper sheets from the ‘Holiday in the Alps’ collection

Thanks for your visit!
Have a good time!
Hello friends. Jennifer Snyder here to celebrate dogs.
Pets are so important in our lives. They are family members and our best friends so I think it’s important to reach out and celebrate when someone I know adds a pet to the family or has to say farewell.
Here’s a list of the 12×12 sheets used from the collections:
Miles Apart – Miss you (B side)
Miles Apart – Phone Call
Miles Apart – Stay Home
Miles Apart – Safe and Sound
Holiday In the Alps – Winter Night
I created cards for boy and girl dogs. No I’m not sure if people care, but I certainly try to be considerate of the owners sensitivity. If I know the dog is a boy, I’m going to try to be mindful. That’s just me.
The dies used in the cards today are an old classic die from Spellbinders (Pawing Around – Dog). Isn’t that a sweet die?
The stamped sentiment is from Stampendous called Puppy Frames.
Thanks for stopping here today. Happy Crafting
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:
Shade of the Alps – Frost
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!
