Hello sweet Maja fans,

I hope you and your loved ones are safe.

I hope you had a wonderful and happy Christmas , dispite  it was a little differend than normal.

This Is a repost  , It was on the blog earlier but , some how It dissapeared , so here it is again.

these are 3 gift wrappings I made for christmas presents , I can tell you now it was a great succes. the loved the wrapping as much as the in inside

 

This was an empty container from scent sticks that I altered with the Traditional Christmas Collection.

This is perfect gift wrapping for a small bottle of wine , a nice scarf, t”shirt or something like that.

 

The top of the lid. I made some flowers  using papertrey ink dies.

I hang a label pocket with some labels in it for a personal message.. I Looooove those little gnomes.

The pocket label is made with a die from gummiapan.

I have two gamer kids and the both asked game giftcards.. most boring gift to give , but the buy their games digital.

For my daughter I made this card because I bought her gamecard online ,and only got the code so (It’s non essential so not sold in a physical shop. )

I wrote that inside this card and put that in a gift envelope I made earlier.

For my son I made this gift card box. His card I bought just before the closed the non essential shops.

On top there is a little envelope with a little card in it saying happy gaming.

This is the inside of the box with the card.

I hope you like what I made for you and that I give you some last minute wrapping inspiration.

I wish you all Happy Holidays and see you next year.  Stay safe.

Good day to you, Maja Friends!

Today we are happy to introduce to you all a special Guest Designer – Agnieszka Cebula from Poland, an artist known for her fabulous flower creations:

Agnieszka says: “Scrapbooking has been my passion for 8 years now, and flowers are my special love. I mostly make them myself from foamiran using various dies. My favourite form are cards with rich flower clusters. I’m an educator and a designer organising classes and workshops. I also design my own dies for my brand, Fiori Agnieszka Cebula.”

Agnieszka loves the vintage style of Maja Design papers and combined our two latest releases, Winter Is Coming and Traditional Christmas to make two Christmas cards:

“Apart from papers from the latest collections I also used theme chipboard and my handmade foamiran flowers. As usually, I accented my designs with gesso and glitter”

 

Here’s the list of Maja papers Agnieszka used for her cards:

What do you think of Agnieszka’s style? Let us know in the comments!

 

Wonderful Christmas Time

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

I’m very happy to post today, on Christmas Eve, which for many people is an important prelude to one of the two most significant holidays of the year. This evening many of us will sit at a festive table of the Christmas Eve supper with their loved ones to share meal, joy and peace. This is for me the true meaning of Christmas: being together in a greateful celebration of God’s love and our families’ love. And this is what my today’s layout is about: being together in joy and peace 🙂

For my page I used papers of the Traditional Christmas collection. First I layered torn pieces of papers to create a patchwork-like colourful background for the photo I put in the centre and decorated with a cluster of poinsettias, leaves and snowflakes. I also added some hand-cut tags, an elf image and finished it all with liquid enamel drops to imitate snow falling:

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Magnolia, Craft&You Design; glitter die-cuts: BoBunny; accrylic snowflakes: Making Memories; enamel dots: Daily Art.

 

This page shows what I love about Christmas: family time, often with those of us whom we don’t see for most of the year. But we must also think of so many of us who will not be able to do that due to pandemic restrictions that in many countries forbid to gather together. Such times remind us what is most important in our lives: family, love, togetherness – and perhaps we need difficult times to keep this in mind?

I do hope you’d be able to celebrate Christmas with your loved ones and that the New Year will bring us all the change for better. I wish that for you and for myself! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!

Merry Christmas Maja Design friends.  Jennifer Snyder here with you to share some Christmas home decor and cheer using Maja Design’s new Christmas collection,  Traditional Christmas.

Take a look at this gorgeous seasonal delight with rich reds and Christmas prints. Here are the individual papers used from the collection: “By the Fire” A and B sides,  “Family Gatherings”.

The wooden sled decor piece is from Creative Embellishments and comes ready to finish.  I covered it with the three Maja Design 12×12 sheets because I love the combination of patterns in this collection.

I also embellished with chipboard pieces from Creative Embellishments and flowers from my stash.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a joyful healthy 2021.  Thanks for sharing a part of  your day with us.

 Welcome Maja friends!

Have you seen the latest Maja Design collection by name ‘Traditional Christmas’ ?!

Great classical christmas colours, green and red, plaid, dotted … which gave me the idea to create a cheerful canvas as a kitchen picture.

We love baking cookies with the kids in the run-up to christmas.

It always takes a little longer and the kitchen is unrecognizable afterwards, but it’s always a lot of fun.

I used the paper sheets ‘Beautiful decorated’; ‘Peace and Joy’ and some papers

from the 6 x 6 suitable collection.

 

Beautifully decorated                   Peace and joy

Tips

 

the apron is simply indispensable when baking, so that the little ones don’t forget, I have designed a simple model

the paper sheet ‘Family gathering’ was perfect for this idea, with two ribbons

and a few punched out motifs you can create them very quickly and easily

+

some close up’s

the flour just sticks everywhere 😉

a flower cluster made with pointsettia cutting dies

Wish you a merry and relaxed christmas especially in these difficult times.

Make the best of it!

Many thanks!

Kerstin
