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.
Hi everyone! Today I thought I would show you a bit more of the card I made to yesterday’s Mood board for MajaDesign. I have used the new gorgeous papers from the Holiday in the Alps collection. Just love it!!
I think this image from Stempelglede fitted the Mood board perfectly. I have used Distress ink, re-inkers and Markers for my colouring. For a more snowy effect, I have added some liquid pearls and fran-tage around the image. I have also painted with white Gesso here and there.
The flowers are from Wild Ochid Crafts. I have made the God Jul (Merry Christmas) text with dies from Papirdesign. I used a Monocrome sheet for the text. The tags are made with kraft papers, Maja papers and a Magnolia tag die.
I have also added some wooden decor from Wycinanka.
I really hope you will enter the Mood board challenge!
Thank you so much for visiting the MajaDesign blog today!
Good morning, Maja Fans, welcome to the blog today 🙂
I’m sure you have already seen our latest release, the Holiday In The Alps collection! 18 gorgeously vintage patterns, introducing the winter season with Christmas images and scenes of winter holidays in the Alps, feature only 3 colours, but still give rich and varied background for you winter and Christmas projects. But not only! Just take a look at my today’s layout:
Not a sign of winter, Christmas or even sports 😀 I used theme-neutral patterns to create this fun boy page with photos of my godson.
I layered three papers, tow of them hand-torn to create uneven, distressed edges and on that background I placed my photos and decorated them with flowers and metal embellishments:
I die-cut the title word in glitter foam and placed it upon a chipboard heart:
As a finishing touch I added some buttons here and there and splashed the layout with white acrylic paint.
I really like the way it turned out, light and cheerful 🙂 What do you think?
Here’s what I used:
Maja Design papers:
Shade of the Alps – Pine cone
Shade of the Alps – Frost-bs
Other: die: My Favourite Things; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; metal embellishments: mitform; chipboard: scrap.com.pl
Are you going use this collection for Christmas/winter projects only, or do you tend to use themed collections for other occasions too?

newest collections; Holiday in the Alps and Shades of the Alps (coordinating Monochrome papers)
Just in time for the coming holiday season! This is a rich and wonderful collection with gorgeous Christmas and winter images and patterns. And true to Maja Design’s unique style, this collection can be used through the year because the B side of the papers are classic patterns.
Below is an image of the Holiday In the Alps and Monochrome -Shades of the Alps collections. I used the “Santa Claus” . sheet from the collection – all shown below.
I really hated to cut such a gorgeous sheet of paper, but the images are absolutely spectacular and needed to be used on a card for someone to enjoy. I really had to fight off that desire to stash and hoard beautiful paper just to cut the paper. The resulting card makes me even happier than keeping that sheet of paper forever with no one ever seeing it on a project. Beautiful paper is meant to be used and shared.
I paired the new collection with some other products.
The chipboard shaker and pine cone branches are from Creative Embellishments and the shaker mix is from Buttons Galore and More.
Thank you for stopping.

Welcome dear creative friends!
Winter is just around the corner and although I haven’t been able to develop any winter feelings yet,
I was totally enthusiastic about the new ‘Holiday in the Alps’ collection.
I love the colour combination blue – brown – white,
optimal for every vintage style but you can also create very natural winter landscapes with it.
I chose a picture of our Sheltie during a beautiful forest walk last year.
and here can you find our newest Winter / Christmas collection
Let inspire you and take a look, it’s worth it!!
