Hello, everyone.
Donna here with a few projects I have made.  Featuring Bloomar Designs beautiful Christmas collection of 3D laser chipboard models and laser chipboard pieces designed by the store owner Margo! I am so in love with her chipboard designs. There are so many gorgeous pieces to choose from, and for every occasion.

I made two exploding boxes. and a mini album.

I used Maja Design 'Holiday in the Alps' 12" x 12" paper collection to decorate all of the projects.

The top of the box is decorated with Bloomar chipboard frame with holly branches, and paper flowers that I made using Lady E poinsettia and leaves die. The stamens and pine cones are from my stash! The holly leaves are cut using the leaves dies.

For my first exploding box I decorated each panel with Maja papers. and matted scallop shaped die cuts on to each panel. I matted papers that I cut using Roxstamps pierced circle die. and adhered each of them to the centre of the scallops with 2mm foam tape.

I adhered the chipboard pieces to each of the side panels. I decorated the pieces with frosted berries, and holly leaves that I cut using Lady E poinsettia and leaves dies.

The enamel dots are from my stash!

I assembled the Bloomar 3D sled and adhered it to the centre. I decorated the top with Bloomar 3D Ho Ho Ho cubes and added artificial snow onto the cubes, sled and floor.

The resin polar bear is from my stash!

The lid of my second box is decorated similar to my first box, but I used Bloomar chipboard frame with snowflakes underneath my arrangement.

The inside of my second box is decorated the same as my first box, but I used different chipboard pieces. These are set 03 chipboard baubles, Christmas garland with hearts and stars, and Christmas garland with baubles hearts and stars.

I used enamel dots from my stash to embellish the Bloomar chipboard snowflakes.

I assembled Bloomar 3D Santas sleigh for the centre of my second box. I coated it with white gesso. and used waxes to give it colour.

I decorated inside Santas sleigh with handmade presents, berries and die cut holly leaves.

My third project is a mini album. I made the base using 300gsm white card, and covered it with Maja Design Holiday in the Alps papers.

I chose to cover the front of my album with traditional Santa. The image is included on one of the
12" x 12" sheets. I added some sparkle to his hair, and beard with a glitter pen. Sadly it doesn't show up in my picture. I dotted his cheeks with a white gelly roll pen.

The beautiful poinsettias are made using Lady E poinsettia and Winter leaves dies. The die is my favourite. I used a glue gun to adhere the flowers placing the leaves, berries, and pine cones around them.

Inside the album is decorated with papers, scalloped die cuts, and pierced circles that are matted onto the scalloped die cuts using 2mm foam tape.

Each of the circles are embellished with Bloomar Design chipboard pieces. On the left circle I have adhered Christmas garland with hearts and stars, and Christmas snowflakes. In the centre circle I adhered Christmas trees and one of the sentiments from word set 03.

On the right circle I adhered Christmas garland with baubles, hearts & stars and Christmas snowflakes. Each of the circles have been embellished with holly leaves, and berries.

The back of my album is decorated with design papers. I made the handle with white card and adhered a panel of monochromes paper onto it. I decorated each end with an antique luxury squared ornament and adhered a pearl button onto each of the ornament centres.
