Jennifer Snyder here  to share Maja Design’s newest collections; Holiday in the Alps and Shades of the Alps (coordinating Monochrome papers)
Just in time for the coming holiday season!  This is a rich and wonderful collection with gorgeous Christmas and winter images and patterns.  And true to Maja Design’s unique style, this collection can be used through the year because the B side of the papers are classic patterns.
Below is an image of the Holiday In the Alps and Monochrome -Shades of the Alps collections.  I used the “Santa Claus” . sheet from the collection – all shown below.
 I really hated to cut such a gorgeous sheet of paper, but the images are absolutely spectacular and needed to be used on a card for someone to enjoy.  I really had to fight off that desire to stash and hoard beautiful paper just to cut the paper.  The resulting card makes me even happier than keeping that sheet of paper forever with no one ever seeing it on a project.  Beautiful paper is meant to be used and shared.
 I paired the new collection with some other products.
The chipboard shaker and pine cone branches are from Creative Embellishments and the shaker mix is from Buttons Galore and More.

 

Thank you for stopping.

The darling Christmas Mitten Mouse is from Spellbinders and is a perfect set to showcase the beautiful patterns of the new collection.
I also embellished the card with tiny sequins and beads from Buttons Galore.

Pumpkin Patch Card 
Hello.   Jennifer Snyder here sharing a festive card that is perfect for autumn.  This card features the warm papers from “Enjoying Outdoors” paper collection from Maja Design.
The beautiful purples, warm browns and soft greens in the collection made me think of outdoor festivals and pumpkin patches.
 This card also was inspired by Maja design’s Mood Board for October:
The papers used from Maja’s Enjoying Outdoors collection are:
Colorful
The Great Nature
Feeling Good
What A Beautiful Day
 I like the non-traditional autumn pumpkins.
The little pumpkins and green leaves are  from Spellbinders.  

 

Thanks for stopping here. Have a creative day.

 Hello Maja Design friends. Jennifer Snyder here to share an anniversary card I created for my parents, using the Celebration collection.

My parents will be celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary this week so I needed to create a special card but not overly frilly and embellished.  I thought the Celebration collection was a perfect fit because the beautiful patterns are very neutral yet eye catching and gorgeous.
Here are the papers I used from the collection:
Welcome and Good Times (A and B sides of paper)
My parents are very earth natural people so the browns from the collection will be nice.
The card was embellished using chipboard from Creative Embellishments. The chipboard words sum of the essence of their 60 years of marriage – a family filled with love.
The chipboard family frame was backed with lace to set is apart from the paper layer underneath.
One last close up of gorgeous Maja Design paper layers on this card.

 Thank you for stopping today.   Happy crafting.

 

Christmas in September

Jennifer Snyder here with Christmas in September.  I know summer has just faded and I promise I am not trying to rush the holidays.
I created a classic card that is simple but graceful – with a touch of rustic.
The collection used is an older collection,  Maja Design – I Wish Collection
and more specifically, I used the front and back of the same sheet, “I Wish Christmas Was Today”.
I really love the red plaid paper in this collection.  It’s rustic, vintage and totally gets me in the Christmas in September feeling.
I added a die with lightly inked edges and tied together with raffia for more old country feel.
Super easy.  Christmas cards do not need to be complex and complicated.  I find when I plan on making my holiday cards super complicated with a lot of embellishments, I never finish the cards.
The best card is the card that gets mailed.

 

Thanks for stopping.  Remember – it’s never too early to start those holiday cards!
