Hello Maja Design Friends.  I’m Jennifer Snyder.  Welcome to Maja Design’s blog.

Christmas is coming and Maja Design has released a new collection to help with the Christmas holiday card and decor preparations.  The new collection featured today is Maja’s “Traditional Christmas” collection.

True to it’s name, the colors are traditional and the patterns rich and fun.  This collection features the cutest little elves. I’ve used the elves on two of my cards.

Here is the image sampler for Maja Design’s “Traditional Christmas” collection.  Such beautiful images and rich colors for the season.

The following papers were used for my cards: Merry and Bright, Beautifully Decorated, By the Fireplace, Die cuts sheet.

Hello Maja Design friend.  Jennifer Snyder here with a jolly snowman shaker card crafted using Maja Design’s classic Christmas collection called, ” Holiday In the Alps”. You can see the collection below along with the individual 12 x 12 sheets I used: Winter Night, Let it Snow, Deers.

I really love the warm vintage appeal of the collection.  By the smile on the snowman’s face, I think he likes the vintage look as well.  Scroll down and I’ll show you how I made the shaker card base.

Shaker Card Base Instructions: 

 

Step 1.  “Holiday in the Alps – Let it Snow” is the base of the card. Cut the paper 10in x6 in and crease in the middle at 5 inches.  This card is 5in x 6in when folded.

Step 2.  The top layer is “Holiday in the Alps – Winter Night” and is slightly smaller than the card base.  I die cut a circle  in the sheet and inked the edges for definition.

.  

Step 3.  Flip the layer over and add double sided tape around the circle.  This is going to be your window so you need to make sure there are no gaps in the tape .  Cut a piece of tulle (or acrylic) to cover the window.  Secure in place.

Step 4.  Add shaker mix to the center of the card base and glue the window layer in place securely over the shaker mix.   Now you are ready to decorate.

I decorated this shaker card using Spellbinders dies and shaker mix from Buttons Galore and More.

The trees were diecut from”Holiday in the Alps – Deers ” paper.

Happy crafting friends.  Thank you for stopping here to visit.

Hello Maja Design Friends.   Jennifer Snyder here to share a snowy welcome to the Holidays.
I used a combination of Maja Design collections to make my holiday card vision be successful.
Here is the list of collections and papers used.  It really highlights how well Maja Design collections and coordinate and be used together.

 

 

I love making winter cards -and especially love Christmas cards with winter scenes.   The funny thing is I don’t like snow that much.  Sure I love it on a card but not on the ground.
The beautiful door die was made using Spellbinders Large Die of the Month for October, and is embellished with sequins and 3D Buttons from Buttons Galore.
The darling snowman was cut from Maja Design ‘s  Holiday in The Alps – Winter Ephemera.  The images on this sheet are fabulous.

 

The door on this card was designed to swing open.   When opened, you are joyfully greeted  by another sweet ephemera image from Maja Design – Joyous Winterdays – Ephemera.   The little boy is ready to toss a snowball .  So sweet.  
Happy Crafting.

Hello Maja Design Friends.  Jennifer Snyder here with some fresh picked fun using Maja Design’s new “Miles Apart” collection.

This is a “must have” collection with gorgeous soft roses, pale peach, light green, gingham patterns and all the exquisite vintage charm that sets Maja Design distinctively apart from any other paper company.   It really makes me smile because it’s so beautiful and fresh feeling.

The collection also has a 6×6 paper pad and the matching Monochrome collection, “Shades of Miles”  with just solids.  I used the “Walnut Brown” from the monochrome collection as a background frame for my card.

The papers used on the card are:
“A few words”
“Miss You”
“Stay Positive”
“Keep in touch”

 

I accented the card with some chipboard raspberries from Creative Embellishments.  They have been painted with acrylic paint and topped with a raffia bow to give the card a touch of nature.

 

 

Thanks for stopping and Happy Crafting.
