 Hello.  Jennifer Snyder here today to share a sweet project made using Maja Design’s  newest collection, “Miles Apart”.   
 
I primarily used the “Miles Apart” 6×6 paper pad to “dress” the Julie Nutting paper dolls in my shadow box.  The background of the shadow box is the only 12×12 piece I used from the collection.  This sheet is call “A Phone Call”.  
 
Below is an image of the collection.  It’s soft and beautiful with delicate prints. 

 

Here are some simple instructions on how I made this sweet shadowbox using the new Carter and Carly doll stamps from Prima and Julie Nutting.
First,  I wanted Carter’s tire swing to actually move so I cut two layers to use as a sandwich, and added hemp string.
Next I stapled the string to the wooden box.  No worries because we will be covering and hiding the staples.

 

I added ribbon around the box to decorate but mostly to cover the staples.
Meet Carly.  She looks adorable in the Maja Design papers.  Plus the 6×6 prints are perfectly sized for the dolls.
I cut two layers to make her more durable especially because I am going to be bending the doll so she can sit.

 

I added a few finishing touches.  Carly and her doll are accented in gems from Buttons Galore.  These are from the new Doo Dadz collections.
Next, Carter had to put his baseball mitt down so he could swing.  The mitt is a 3D button also from Buttons Galore.

 

Thank you for stopping here today.  The new collection has shipped and should be showing up in stores soon.  You can check the store finder list for vendors.
Happy crafting.

 Hello Maja Design friends.  Jennifer Snyder here with you today to share a card made using the fabulous “soon to be released ” collection from Maja Design called “Miles Apart”.  The collection will be released August 10th and will soon be shipping around the world.

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.

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 chipboard shaker used is from Create Embellishments and the gorgeous shaker mix is from Buttons Galore’s new collections called Doo Dadz.

Remember – August 10th and then shipped around the world.  Hopefully to your doorstep.

Happy Crafting.

Hello friends.  Jennifer Snyder celebrating Christmas in July. At the halfway mark to Christmas festivities and time starts moving quickly as we get closer.
I am trying hard to be prepared in advance this year.
With that, I hope I am inspiring you to start your projects early as well.
My cards feature the festive Maja Design Holiday in the Alps collection.
 
  This first card is a yummy gingerbread shaker card made with the following sheets of Holiday in the Alps :
Santa Clause A and B side
A New Year
Christmas Day
I combined three beautiful paper patterns from the Holiday in the Alps collection.  They coordinate so well together. to create a festive look.
The sweet gingerbread cookie shaker is from Creative Embellishments and has been filled with new shaker mix from Buttons Galore that look like tiny peppermint candy and gingerbread cookies.
So adorable.   There are also 3D buttons adorning the card from Buttons Galore and More.

    Here is a close up of the background papers and shaker mix.  It’s hard to  see the cool reindeer patterns on the paper at a distance.  The shaker mix is adorable as well.

The second card is more traditional with a stocking shaker and holiday wreath design.
The shaker is once again from Creative Embellishments wit the shaker mix from Buttons Galore’s new collection called Doo Dadz. .

 

 

 

Here is a close up showing the “Merry Christmas ” sentiment.  Have you ever noticed the beautiful borders Maja Design has on the bottom of every sheet of 12×12 paper?
Take a look at the bottom of each sheet.  One side has information regarding the paper and UPC code but the other side is a treasure.  The paper banners make great sentiments on cards.

 

 Thank you for stopping by for a little Christmas in July.
Happy crafting.

Snowmen – Side B

The snow globe shaker is from Creative Embellishments and is filled with shaker mix from Buttons Galore and More.  Every shaker needs fabulous sequin shaker mix and this mix is glittery and shimmery like fresh fallen snow.

 Hello crafty friends.  Jennifer Snyder here today with some all purpose cards for the summer.  And the perfect Maja Design papers for the summer?  yep, Life by the Sea.
This collection has always been one of my favorite classic collections.
This collection is also wonderful for creating projects with layers.

The papers used are :

Navigate
Landmark
The East Coast
Marina Hovering
These two cards also feature chipboard from Creative Embellishments.
  
The treatment on the chipboard is simple.  I added white acrylic paint to a dry sea sponge and dabbed the chipboard.  The sea sponge has an irregular surface with holes here and there much like Swiss cheese.  The irregular surface allows the paint to be dabbed softly without full coverage like a paint brush would.
Thanks so stopping here today.  Happy crafting.
