12 days of Christmas event at Crafty ribbons - day 1

Hey hey! Just one more day, one day, no more and I'll be going to the Bryan Adams concert. I'm SO excited!!! I've been looking forward to this ever since I found out he's coming to this little country. And my excitement got even bigger when I got the tickets for my birthday. And now the day FINALLY arrived (well, almost lol). 

Otherwise I'm all in Christmas spirit and I want to listen to (and sing too lol) Christmas carols all the time. Do you have a favourite Christmas song? Mine is definitely Christmas time by Bryan Adams (go figure lol). There are maaaaany more that I like (what can I say, I'm nuts about Christmas), but it's Bryan's song I want to share with you today. You know, just to get you in the Christmas mood if you are not already. ;)


Ok, now that you are in the Christmas mood I want to tell you about an event that started at Crafty ribbons inspiration blog today. We are doing a 12 days of Christmas event. :D


Over the next 12 days the DT will be showing you their Christmas makes and hopefully inspire you to do some last minute Christmas crafting. Each day of the event will be also sponsored by some wonderful companies who generously donated prizes for the event. 

We are at the very first day of event and today's sponsor is Bearly mine designs.

For the first day I made a very sparkly Christmas card. You can never have too much sparkle, right? ;)


I've used my last few pieces of Maja design papers (I definitely need to buy more) and lots of sparkly snowflake embellishments. I got the big ones as an early Christmas gift from my friend and the small ones have been in my stash forever. To be honest completely forgot I had them. *ooops* I found them by coincidence when I was sorting out my craft things. It's good to do some cleaning up every now and then. ;) Doily and pearls came from my stash as well. And so did the brads (those sparkly white dots at the bottom of the page are brads). Ribbon is from Crafty ribbons and you can find it here. The adorable image is from La-La Land and it's calleed Snowflake garland Marci. She's coloured with distress inks.


In the center of each snowlake and in Marci's hair accessories I added pearls, It's hard to see in the picture, but the snowflake garland is covered with glitters too - I told you there is a LOT of sparkle in this card. ;) Over the part of Marci's dress I went with Sakura Gelly Roll pen. I just love the shimmery look it gives. :)

The sentiment came with the stamp. I covered it with Stickles. The snowflake border is from Noor design.


I hope you like my today's card and that you will hop to the CRPI blog to see the creations my teamies made. They are a real treat for the eyes, trust me. :) Also, while you are there, don't forget to leave your info with Mr. Linky to be in a chance for the prize draw.

I'm wishing you a wonderful day. Big hugs to all of you! xx

  2. Another stunning card my friend! You have the most gorgeous papers, wow, I just love these colours together! The glitter around the edges of the panels is amazing, love that bit of detail to put into everything! You are so talented with the colouring, this is such a weak area for me, I could just never be patient enough to do that! I hope you have a wonderful time at your concert! Big holiday hugs Maja! :)

    1. I love these papers too. Hence, I should say I love all Maja Design papers. They have that vintage feel that like so much. The down side is that they are not available here and that they are quite pricey (in comparison to other papers).
      Thank you so much for you kind words about my colouring. I'm still learning, but I'm having lots of fun while doing so. I'm sure you could master the colouring too if you wanted. :)
      Have a wonderful weekend!
      Big hugs to you! xx

    2. I'm surprised that you have trouble finding Maja papers, you can't get them where I live either...strange! I have tried my hand at the colouring, but I just found that I got bored so quickly...I have a short attention span for that sort of a thing. Reaching for the texture paste now HA!! hugs :)

    3. It's a swedish company and and unfortunately none of the stores here are selling their papers yet. I hope this will change soon though. The Maja papers I had were a gift from my friend from Sweden. She sent me several sheets and I was so "affraid" to use them, because I knew that once they are gone, they are gone. But then Ithought that it's a shame if I'm just hiding them in the drawers, so I decided to use them after all.

      To each his own. :) Have fun playing with the texture paste! :)

      Hugs! xx

  17. Well, this is just DARLING! I love how you've added the pearl accents to the center of the snowflakes to give it such dimension and a soft touch that matches the snow and softness of your lovely card. Thanks SO MUCH for sharing your talents with us.

  20. What a great creation. So many wonderful elements including the paper, the embellishments and the lay-out. They all make this so wonderfully designed. We appreciate you blessing us with your project last week and would love to have you back this week for a two-week long challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with God's Word from Romans 15:13 which says, "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope." A Blessed Merry Christmas to you and your household.
