  Jennifer Snyder here to share a joyous winter card featuring the gorgeous holiday/winter collection from Maja Design, “Joyous Winterdays”.

This collection, shown below, is a perfect Holiday/Winter combo with the warm traditional Christmas colors paired the blues and creams for those winter day projects.  This means you have a holiday collection that you can continue to use well past Christmas.  Actually all Maja Design papers have patterns that can be used year round.  This helps make your paper investment such a wise option.
 The Joyous Winterdays papers used on this card are:
Chilly (B-side)
I am absolutely in love with the delicate designs of the papers, especially the one called “Chilly”.
You can clearly see this pattern and color isn’t limiting in terms of season.


I paired these papers with some new dies and stamps from Spellbinders -Hannah Elise Layering Frame and the Spellbinders Snowflakes Holidays die and stamp set.  I’d say it’s a perfect match.
I can’t begin to tell you how much joy this collection brings me.  I love each and every sheet.  Because so many of us tend to hoard the paper we adore instead of actually using the papers, one might ask, if I love the paper so much, how can I possibly CUT IT UP???
Well friends, papers and cards and your lovely projects are meant to be shared.  If the Maja collections bring a smile to your face while creating with them, imagine how they will truly light up the face of someone you love when they receive your card or project.
So go ahead – CUT those papers.  Use those papers.  Share those papers.  That’s how we show our love for Maja Design.

Thanks for sharing a piece of your day.  Jennifer-sign

 Hello.  Jennifer Snyder with you today to share some Christmas cards.
Pet owners love to receive cards from their pets.  I know I do.  It’s a cute way to include our furry family in the celebration of a holiday or event.
Well, it’s time for me to start making those pet cards, and I’ve used the new collection by Maja Design, “Joyous Winterdays”.  These are the gorgeous papers used from the collection.
“Beautiful Pine”
“Pick a Tree”
“Make Decorations”
The colors in this new collection are both wintery blues and traditional Christmas colors of green and red.  The combination is exquisite.   And as always, the papers have patternes that can also be used through the year – not just at holiday time.   BONUS!
I used the new Joyous Winterdays collection for my sweet dog card.
The sentiment says, “Have a tail-waggin Christmas”
 The dog and kitty are from Tim Holtz.”Mini Crazy Cats and Dogs” stamps and matching dies.
 I also decided to create a kitty card using a very untraditional collection of papers and colors.
Maja Design “Summertime” collection.  The is just more proof that any Maja Design collection can be used for multiple purposes.
These are the papers I used from the Summertime collection:
“Is Always the Best”
“Taste the Strawberries”
“In the Garden”

Thanks for stopping today.

Hello Maja Design friends.  Jennifer Snyder here to share a Christmas card I made by combining two Maja Design holiday collections: Maja Design – A Gift For You and Maja Design – Vintage Winter .

I love that the collections can often be used together.  That’s part of the magic of Maja Design.  It’s  always fun when you can make the most of the products and paper you purchase.  That’s the added value of Maja Design collections.   While some of the papers in the Holiday/Christmas collections certainly have images that are “themed ” for the holidays, the B sides of the papers offer prints that can be used for any occasion.
 The papers I used are shown in the image above and are as follows:
My darling snowman die is from Memory Box dies.  I think it’s adorable.   Accented with some Flowers,  pine branches and he’s all set for the Holidays.
And one last close up from a different angle so you can see the dimension of my card.

Thank you for choosing  to spend your time at the Maja Design blog.  We treasure that.

Jennifer Snyder here today, feeling thankful.  While it may feel like life is  spinning out of control, the world has gone crazy and work is stressful,  remind yourself of the many reasons to be thankful.  Thankful for supportive family, friends and co-workers.  Thankful for health and a warm home.  And thankful for a papercrafting hobby that brings peace, joy, a way to relieve the stresses of the day through beautiful papers and crafting supplies.
I made a card for a person who has helped me in my job for 10 years.  She is a treasured client of mine and is moving to a new position.  I value her assistance and level-headedness in the times when work seems like it can gobble me up.
My gorgeous paper choices perfect for the season are from Maja Design – Walking in the Forest paper collection. Featured below are the papers I used to create my card:
Maple ( both A and B side)
Mountain Ash (B side)
 I grabbed another great product perfect for the season – my Spellbinders Fall Leaves die.  I also added some gold embroidery floss, floral berries and a flower for embellishments.

Here are a few more closeups of the papers and embellishments on my card.

I am thankful for your visit and support.  May your Autumn season be full of reason to be thankful.

  Hello.  Jennifer Snyder here today using a combination of papers from Maja Design Coffee in the Arbour and the Vintage Spring Basics collections.  Over the years, I’ve found that so many of the collections can be used together and mix so very well.  It’s part of the fun of using Maja Design.

The beautiful papers used from the Coffee in the Arbour collection are :
 Lemon Meringue Pie, Flourishing Garden,  Homemade Lemoncurd – all shown below.
 The Coffee in the Arbour  collection is bright and cheery.  It’s  like sitting on the porch on a warm sunny with a tall glass of lemonade.   Since it’s Autumn in NY and the weather is turning chilly, these warm sunny days are going to be just a memory, so I’ll be looking at the paper and smiling, remembering and enjoying.
 As I mentioned, I also used papers from the Vintage Spring Collection.  It’s blooming with flowers and butterflies.
These are the papers I chose:
 6th of May paper
7th of May

 The sweet butterflies are cut from the 6th of May paper in the collection.  They make for the perfect finishing touch.

Thank you for stopping here today.
