Hello Sweet Maja Fans ,

First I want to wish you all a very Happy and creative New year. I hope you had a wonderful Holiday Season.

I’m having  a bit of a hard time to say goodbye to it. I always love that time of the year.

So one more Christmas post from me for closure and to start with the new year.

As you see no layout , card or minialbum but  a altered clock. I bought this  one a while ago at the dollar store , and is was waiting for the perfect opportunity  to come along .

When I got the latest collection Christmas Season collection I knew I had to use them for this project.

Here you have a closeup from the top of the clock.

And one close up from the bottom.  The christmas cards are cut out of the Greeting Cards sheet.

And one fromthe side.

I hope you like my Clock. I keep it at my craft room as a countdown to next Holiday season.

Happy  and Creative New year!!

My Fabulous Boy

Hello there, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today  🙂

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas time and your New Year’s Eve parties were a bang!

I’m happy to be back on the blog with the first layout this year 🙂 And as I wanted to enjoy the holiday collection a little bit more than just around Christmas, I used the Christmas Season papers to make it 🙂

You wouldn’t tell it’s a Christmas collection, would you? That’s what I love about Maja papers, the diversity and universatility that allow you to use themed collections whenever you want! And so I layered some papers in the background and added some squares punched out from scraps to add some pattern:

Since the time is still around the holidays and the carnival is just beginning, I wanted to add some glam and shine and therefore I opted for some gold accents: metal embellies, gold buttons, sequins and glitter:

But at the same time I wanted to make the layout boyish-harsh, so I added denim ribbon and some black stamped “handwritten” sentiments:

I made the title by combining gold foam letters with a die-cut word:

…and the title shines too 😉

And I’m really glad it turned out light and almost clean&simple style (at least for my taste!). What do you think?

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Heidi Swapp; flowers: Prima; letters: American Crafts; die: Creative Expressions; buttons, punch: Docrafts; sequins, ribbon, pearls: my stash.

Wishing you a very creative 2019! See you soon!

 

Peace & Joy

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

Christmas is just around the corner! I just can’t wait to decorate the Christmas tree (which we always do on Christmas Eve morning) and for the home to fill with wonderful smell of Christmas cooking 🙂 But what is most important is who I’m spending my Christmas with – meeting all my loved ones at the Christmas Eve table and visiting as many relatives as we can during Christmas days. Because love, peace and joy are most valuable gifts of the holiday. And that’s what my layout is about:

I made it using our latest collection, Christmas Season. I just love the traditional colour palette of this collection and all the vintage images!

First I layered some papers in the background and added some stamping. Then I added the matting arrangement of papers for the photo:

I also added some doily pattern using a stencil and texture paste:

Another white accent is the guipure lace border and enamel dots that imitate the snow falling:

I added the flower cluster with a felt snowflake and some crystals around the Christmas wishes tag I cut out from the Ephemera sheet:

What would be a hoilday layout without some glam? I added golden buttons, glitter cardstock diecuts and foam gold metallic letter for the title:

Here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: letters: American Crafts; stamps: Tim Holtz; dies: Magnolia; stencil: Agateria;  flowers: Prima; buttons: Dovecraft; wooden embellishments: BoBunny; snowflake, lace: my stash

And since this is my last post this year, I wish you a Merry Christmas filled with peace, love and joy and a Happy New Year!

See you in January 🙂
