Maja Design "Celebration" Birthday Card

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
I hope you are well?

It's been a while since I have posted. 
I've had a lot going on, but hopefully I'm back on track with my crafting.
I'm going to be dabbling in mixed media, and also Foamiran to make my own flowers.

Anyway, I'm sharing a card that I recently made for my Step Mother.
She loves Art Deco.
I used Maja Design Celebration paper's.


Here are some close ups


The  flowers are from my stash!
 The pin is one that my bloggy friend sent me.


I love the Gummiapan Happy birthday sentiment. I use it a lot.
The diamante brooch is also from my bloggy friend. I thought that it was perfect for the card.


I love the images that are included in the Celebrate collection.


Inside the card is decorated to complement the front.


That's all from me today.
I hope you like the card?

thanks for stopping by.

Swedish House Crafts DT - Winter Exploding Box


Hello, everyone!
I'm here as well as on Swedish House crafts blog today with another exploding box that I made just before Christmas using Maja Design Christmas Season papers. 
The papers are gorgeous. I love them so much.

If you would like to see the the first exploding box that I made using the papers. You can find it HERE

Links to the products used can be found in text at the end of my post.


To make the base of the box I used a 12" x 12" sheet of Christmas Season Holiday paper, and decorated each panel with papers from Christmas Season 6" x 6" paper pad.


To decorate the centre I used Laserowe chipboard 3D sled. I dabbed each of the chipboard pieces with vintage photo distress ink using a sponge. Then I assembled the sled using pva craft glue.
Once dry I added some snow-tex to give a snowy effect. The distress ink, twine and snow-tex are from my stash! I made the presents myself using the design papers. 


Above are some close ups of each of the decorated panels. Each of the images are from the 12" x 12" sheet of Christmas Season Ephemera.

The flowers, and embellishments are from my stash, and the chipboard snowflake is one of many on a sheet of Laserowe Love Arctic sweeties snowflakes.


Here is the box opened with the decorated lid. I made the lid using white card, and decorated it with papers from the 6" x 6" pad. I also made the tag using the papers.

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.


I'm here as well as on Swedish House Crafts blog with an exploding box that I have made using the new collection of Maja Design papers called Christmas Season. 

Links to the products can be found in text at the end of my post.


To make the base of the box I used a 12" x 12" sheet of Christmas Season Deck the Halls paper, and decorated each panel with papers from Christmas Season 6" x 6" Paper pad.


To decorate the centre of the box I used Laserowe chipboard 3D Christmas tree. I assembled the tree. and painted it with white gesso. Once dry I adhered a length of tinsel trim around the tree. I painted the star on the top of the tree with gold paint, and made each of the tiny presents.

Below are some close ups of each of the decorated panels.


The banner is from my stash! 

I love the images that are included in the 6" x 6"paper pad. The images on the 12" x 12" sheets are a lot bigger.

I have handmade the flowers using the papers and a poinsettia die from my stash!


I especially love this image. The chipboard snowflake that I've sprinkled with glitter is Laserowe. I adhered a pearl to the centre.


The trees are Gummiapan fluffy trees, and the snowflake is Laserowe.


To make the lid I used white card, and decorated it with papers from the 6" x 6" pad.

Swedish House Crafts DT Laserowe Love Arctic Sweeties Pop Up Box Card


Hello, lovely blogger friend's!
I'm here with a project that I have made using the new Laserowe Love Arctic Sweeties complete collection.
This time I have made a pop up card box. I've never made one before. It was so easy to make. and I thoroughly enjoyed it 😊


I used white card to make the card base and covered it with Arctic Sweeties paper.

Links to the products used can be found at the end of this post.


I cut around each of the characters. Some of the characters that I used are on a 12" x 12" sheet, and others are on strips of motifs. I adhered the cut outs onto strips of clear acetate.

The snowy branches are taken from a die that came with last years Magnolia vintage box.


I just adore these little arctic characters. I added some glamour dust from my stash to the balloons, and presents.


 I used Roxstamps pierced circle die on the three flaps of the box, and on two of them adhered a Gummiapan snowflake die cut. The purple 3mm pearl flatback in the centre of the snowflake is from my stash!


I cut out, and added a tag to the back of the box. That way you can write your own personal festive message. I hung the tag with a length of white string and secured to the back of the box with a tiny silver brad.

That's all from me today! Thanks for stopping by!

Swedish House Crafts DT | Laserowe Arctic Sweeties Christmas card

Hello, everyone!


I'm sharing a Christmas card here as well as on the Swedish House Crafts blog that I have made using the new Laserowe Love Arctic Sweeties complete collection. There are 6 12"x 12" double sided sheets as well as 3 strips of 12" x 2" double sided cut out motifs. 

I used Gummiapan old paper die to cut and layer the papers to the card front.

Links to the products used can be found at the end of this post.


I took one of the strips, and cut around the penguin, and the polar bear.
I added glamour dust to the purple heart, and the polar bears scarf. 


I used Arctic Sweeties paper to die cut a Gummiapan stitched scalloped circle, and put it to one side.
One one of the 12" x 12" design sheets has 12 gorgeous images. I chose the polar bear image.
I cut the image using Roxstamps stitched circle, and matted it onto a larger stitched circle using "Arctic Sweeties" papers, and adhered that onto the scalloped circle.

I used glamour dust on the pom pom of the bears hat.


I cut around the banner from one of the sheets, and cut out some paper letters from my stash to spell the word Noel.


The Laserowe chipboard snowflake garland that I used is one of three sizes included in the pack. I chose the larger garland, and decorated it with pearl flatbacks from my stash!


The flowers are from my stash! 


Inside the card is decorated to complement the front.

Swedish House Crafts Laserowe Love baby Boy Exploding Box And Giveaway

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.

I'm showcasing my project for Swedish House Crafts here as well as on Swedish House Crafts blog.
😊😊😊😊😊


I have made an exploding box using some of the new gorgeous Laserowe Love papers, and chipboards that are now available to buy in store. There is so much to choose from at really great prices. If you've never heard of Laserowe before then I highly recommend that you take a look in store.

I used Neenah desert storm cardstock to make the base, and lid of the box,

Links to the products that I have used on my exploding box can be found at the end of my post.


 I decorated each of the panels with Laserowe Love Vintage baby boy complete collection papers.



I die cut five Gummiapan pierced scalloped circles using Neenah desert storm cardstock, and I die cut five Roxstamps pierced round dies using white card. I matted one onto the other, and adhered each one onto the centre of each of the panels with 1mm foam tape.

There is a sheet of nine gorgeous images included inside the paper stack. I cut around four of them, and adhered each one to the centre of each of the circles using 2mm foam tape.


I assembled Laserowe chipboard 3D elephant with pva glue, and painted it completely with black gesso. Once the gesso was dry, I brushed blue wax over the elephant leaving the wheels black. I adhered a large white pearl flatback to the centre of each of the wheels. I attached a length of twine through the elephants trunk, and adhered the elephant to the centre of the box.


To decorate the lid I adhered a Gummiapan stitched square die cut on top of the design paper.
I used Laserowe chipboard elephant toy for the top. I painted the base of elephant in the same way as I did for the 3D elephant. Once dry, I adhered the detailed chipboard elephant onto the base.

The flowers, seam binding that I used to make a bow, and the silver bear charm are from my stash!



There is a gorgeous set of tags included in the paper stack.
I cut around one of the tags, and threaded a length of twine through the eyelet. I adhered the twine underneath the bow, and adhered the bear charm to the centre.


On to the exciting part. I am giving away my exploding box to one lucky person in our Facebook group Swedish House Crafters lounge. Everyone has a chance to win, but first you will need to join our facebook group, and leave a comment mentioning to whom you would like to give the exploding box to or maybe you would like it for yourself?
