The Winter 'Blues'


Hello, dear friends! How are you doing? I hope the New Year is treating you well. I'm thrilled to present a new project on the Maja Design Blog this lovely Friday. I don't actually have the winter blues-lol. I am, however, totally and completely obsessed with the color blue. Sometimes I'll go a couple of weeks favoring a certain color, and this week it is blue. Does that ever happen to you?  

This is no problem when you have Maja Design papers. They have a fabulous assortment of blues to choose from. Today I'm using Vintage Autumn Basics to bring to life this sequestered garden. 


The base papers are distressed, layered, and stitched. A script stamp adds interest to the upper corner of the card. Two ovals layered on foam adhesive provide a backdrop for the bench. The blue paper roses and leaves are handmade using the paper collection.  
You'll find some cheesecloth and a twine bow for a feminine touch.  





Thank you so much for visiting today! I hope you have plenty of time to get cozy in your crafting space this weekend. There are so many lovely Maja Design Papers are waiting for you to create your own treasures!

Hugs,
Nancy-sign

New Year's Inspiration Card!


Hello, friends! I hope y'all had wonderful holiday celebrations with your loved ones. Do you still have your holiday decor up in your home? I do. I leave it up for the first couple of weeks in January. I always feel a little blue when it's time to put everything away (probably because it's sooooo much work!), but before I realize it the time arrives to deck the halls all over again! I'm looking forward to a great year in 2017.     

We're ringing in the New Year at The Frilly and Funkie Blog with a brand new challenge! The amazing Jenny is our hostess and her guidelines are as follows: 

At the start of each New Year so many of us make plans and set goals for the futures. For this challenge we want you to create a vintage or shabby chic project depicting what you are inspired to do/achieve in 2017.

At the end of the challenge the team will choose their top four picks. Our first place winner will be invited to join us in a Guest DT spot at The Frilly and Funkie Blog . Three additional talented participants will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and adheres to the challenge guidelines will be entered into a drawing to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique! For entry specifics and inspiration from my fabulous teammates just click on the blog link above.

My goal in 2017 is to truly appreciate the beauty in each and every day. It's easy to allow trivialities of day to day life to open the door to negative energy. There is no substitute for a positive attitude, and I intend to begin by seeing beauty in all that is around me. 


Vintage Autumn Basics papers from Maja Design are distressed, layered, and stitched. This Impression Obsession sentiment stamp is from Linda's shop. 
  

Little Birdie flowers, lace, twine, pearls, and die cut leaves add an elegant, feminine touch.   


Tim Holtz Distress Paints are combined to create a color that coordinates with the paper collection, then splashed randomly about the card. 


Below you'll find a peek at the inside of the card. 



Thank you so much for joining me today! I'm super excited to see your gorgeous creations and find out what your goals are for the year ahead! I wish you a fabulous day filled with loads of crafty fun! 

Hugs,
Nancy-sign

Santa's List Card!


Hello, my friends! I hope you had a blessed Christmas! I'm thrilled to be sharing a project on the Maja Design Blog today. This is the last of my 2016 series of dimensional cards using Maja Design's festive 'I Wish' collection. Sunday was truly the very first day of Christmas, so the way I see it we're still firmly in the midst of season. 

Santa is the front and center of this card as he studies his list in preparation for his holiday deliveries.   

Each layer is distressed, layered, stitched, and popped up using foam adhesive.  


The image of Santa and the holiday ornaments are fussy cut from the paper collection. 


Snow frosted holiday greenery, berries, and a twine bow add finishing touches. 


The lace trim is created with a Martha Stewart border punch.  


Thank you so much for visiting! It's a great honor to share my card with you. I want to thank you with all my heart for your kind comments. I am humbled and forever grateful to be a part of such a fabulous crafty family. I can't wait to see what y'all are working on as we head into the New Year. I send wishes for many cozy days of crafting!  

Hugs,
Nancy-sign
