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!

Today an ‘Out off the page’ project in vintage style, it’s a triptych with wintry feeling.
As I saw the wonderful new collection papers ‘Joyous winterdays’ I was inspired to create a new home decor project for christmas as little gift for a good friend.
used Maja Design papers
other used materials
modelling clay white, Snow tex (DecoArt), Silikon mould ‘Icecycle’, Distress ink ‘Walnut stain’, clear stamp ‘Crackle’, chipboards (Scrap FX), cutting dies, Resin treasure window
How I made this
- I choose background paper ‘Frost’ and cut out all three MDF pieces
- then I glued the paper with Decoupage Glue (DecoArt) on it
- I connected the three pieces and used the paper distresser tool for the edges, it gives an beautiful altered effect
- then i chose two motives from this new amazing Christmas/ Wintercollection and cut out – the sweet snowmen and little boy
- icecycles were made with white modeling clay and a mould
- to complete the background, I added Distress Ink ‘Walnut stain’ with a little bit water for some running effects, it will give you a worned altered look
- I used the ‘Blizzard’ paper, textured paper (leftovers from a wallpaper) and a craft paper for cutting dies – trees, lantern, winter leaves and snowflakes
- glued all also embellishments with a transparent adhesive medium
- create the snow effect with Snow tex (DecoArt)
some close up’s
This project was so much fun to create and I love the scene that you can build up, using all the beautiful background papers from Maja Design.
And if you wonder why the little boy is suddenly blue now, even though he is on the original green, it was very cold in the snow 😉 … ?
yes, you can change the color of these papers later, for example with alcohol markers 🙂
Many thanks for your visit!
Enjoy your weekend!
Hello dear friends! Its Evgenia Petzer with you today, I have prepared the wall hanging collage using the lovely Home for the Holidays collection.
Lets have a look? The size is A4, lots of layers, chipboard, lace…lots of close ups:
I have added many kraft accents this time for my collage.pearls… lots of glitter- gold and white
for the glitter effects I have used these mediums:
I love how this adhesive spray works – you just spray on the place that you need and sprinkle over with the glitter or other stuff that you need.
My favourite christmas collection by Maja Design is definitely Home for the Holidays, so I am still playing with it:
Have a nice weekend,
Hi everyone! It’s Gabrielle here with you today to share a home decor project I recently made using a Dusty Attic chipboard Door Hanger and some lovely papers from the Maja Design ‘Enjoying the Outdoors’ paper collection.
I began by tracing the shape of the chipboard sign on the Enjoying the Outdoors ‘Autumn Picnic paper. I glued this to the chipboard with a brush and a mixture of 50% white glue with 50% water. I then used a decorative edge scissor to cut out a complimentary colored patterned paper from the Enjoying the Outdoors collection called “Colorful”.
I used a TCW stencil called ‘Art Is’ with homemade texture paste to add some texture to the darker of the two papers. I chose some Prima white roses and gave them a pinkish/mauve center by dabbing some Shimmerz Precious Posey Inklingz and Berry Hot Creameez. As a final touch to my centerpiece design I cut out a couple of the little butterflies from the Enjoying the Outdoors ‘Garden Creatures’ paper.
I added delicate scroll to the bottom of the hanger (Dusty Attic’s Ornamental Trim set), painted it white and stamped it with a crackle stamp I designed for The Scrapbook Diaries. Final touch was to add some adhesive pearls that complimented the colors in the gorgeous Maja papers.
I hope you all enjoyed my project today and hope you have a chance to pull out your favorite Maja Design papers and play this week! xo
