Hello everyone.  My name is Jennifer Snyder.  I am honored and very excited to start the year designing for Maja Designs – such amazing softness and elegance to their papers, and such thick quality paper.   One can’t help but fall in love with each design.  The real problem you will have is which gorgeous sheet to use first.  Now that can be a real problem.  Ohhhhh to have such problems like that!

I wanted to keep going with the January Mood Board challenge and winter theme.  This Challenge runs until Jan 31st and you can have a chance to win a great Maja Designs collection.  I am in love with the colors of this Mood Board. While they are chilly, they also warm my heart.

I wanted my piece to be vintage winter so I used  a vintage photo of a little boy and his snowman. I decided to use a large snowflake punch as an edge punch and then glue the punched out snowflake as accents around the page.  The paper was too pretty to waste.

I selected the Vintage Summer Basics Collection as my paper choice – 1916 and 1902 paired with the Ska Vi Ta En Fika Collection – Kaffetaren Den Basta Ar.

I accented this page with a chipboard frame  simply coated in glitter glue.   The snowflake is an old Christmas tree ornament that I had stored in my stash for a special page – such as this. I did not over embellish this page as I really want the highlight to be the papers.
