 Jennifer Snyder here sharing how much I adore the seaside collection by Maja Design called Life by the Sea.  I find this collection to be soothing, peaceful and calming.

 

These are the papers I used from Life by the Sea by Maja Design
Regatta (B side)
Bottle Message ( A and B side)
In order to give my card an extra pop of nautical fun, I added a chipboard heart net from Creative Embellishments and a flair button.  I think the embellishments complement the papers perfectly.

 

Here is one last image to show the dimension of the card.
 Thanks for stopping by today.  Happy crafting.

 

Rainbows and Unicorns – Dimensional Card

Jennifer Snyder here to share a magical unicorn moment with Maja Design’s Enjoying Outdoors collection.

My sentiment reads : “It’s going to be a rainbows and unicorns kind of day.”
Some days are meant to be extra special.
Beautiful Maja Design papers can also help to make a day extra special.

 
The Enjoying Outdoors collection has rich purples and greens that make me think of unicorns.  I am not sure why I connect purple with unicorns, but I do.
That’s the very reason I selected this paper. These are the 12×12 pieces I used from the collection:
Flourishing
Woodlands
The Great Nature

The dimensional die used on this card is from Spellbinders and Becca Feeken.  The Unicorn die is also from Spellbinders.  The  die set is mean to fold flat  to fit into an envelope.

This is an image of the multiple layers of the card – the layers which make the card dimensional.  Scrolling down, the next image down shows the card folding flat for placing in an envelope.

  Thanks for stopping here today.  I hope your day is filled with rainbows, unicorns and beautiful Maja Design papers.

Jennifer Snyder here sharing winter fun with an adorable snowman snow globe card.
I realize it’s summer, and the snow is finally gone – but I really do love snowmen and snow globes.   Plus when I add a shaker card, I’m loving life.
Here are the papers I used from the Vintage Winter collection by Maja Design:
Hej-mitt-vinterland
Fun in the Snow
Winter Joy
The snow globe was created using the cool die from Spellbinders and Becca Feeken.  The snowman is also a Spellbinders die.
To assemble the card, I cut the sweet snowman from the Vintage Winter collection and glued him to the side of the shaker snow globe.

 

Here is a quick 30 second video showing the snow globe shaker card in motion.
I just love making shaker cards.

 

The die has many pieces – meaning many layers to assemble in order to create the dimensional look.
My snowballs are actually little foam balls.   They work perfectly here.

 

I wanted the snow to shake and fall around the snowman and be a bit more dimensional.
In order to do that, I have provided my “sandwich” – describing the way I created the layers.
You can see a close up of the layers in the image below.

 

On the second side of the shaker card, I cut the image of the little boy throwing snowballs from the Maja Design paper.   Perfect for my card.

Thanks for stopping here to see my winter creation.  Now back to Summer….
Happy Crafting.

Jennifer Snyder here to share a pretty purple card I made using  the Enjoying Outdoors collection from Maja Design.
This collection features exquisite shades of purples and greens making a fun and versatile collection.  The images on the collection inspire year-round crafting possibilities.
I’m a purple fan so the papers in Enjoying Outdoors really speaks to me.
The image above shows the papers I used from Maja Design – Enjoying Outdoors.  Click here to see the entire collection of gorgeous papers.
Maja Design – What a Beautiful Day (12×12 size)
Maja Design –  Picking Flowers ( both A and B side 12×12 size)
The design has beautiful delicate details.  Because of this, I left my embellishments on the plain and simple side so that the papers had an opportunity to shine.
 
A little about the accents on this card…the  featured embellishment I chose is a chipboard butterfly from Creative Embellishments.  I left the chipboard piece in it’s original color with no treatments because the kraft color of the chipboard was a nice accent.
The decorative circle die is from Graphic 45 – Staples Collection – Square Tag and Clock.  I chose to leave out the clock face.
I also have some pink adhesive pearls as finishing touches and hemp cord to add an element of nature to the card. .
Where can you find these papers?

Thank you for stopping here today.  Happy Crafting.

Celebrate Mother’s Day

Jennifer Snyder here to share a card I made for my mother to celebrate Mother’s Day.
I used the gorgeous soft collection from Maja Design, called Sofiero.
The beautiful rose florals in this collection remind me of the rose garden my mother had in our front yard when I was a child.
These are the papers I used from the Sofiero collection:
Strolling Down the Rose Path
The Elegant Winehouse
Romantic Picnic in the Park

  I used a Spellbinders die, created by Becca Feeken for the embellishing.  The die was backed by a piece of floral lace to add an extra touch of femininity.

Here is one last look at the card.

Thanks for sharing a little of your day with us.
