Greetings friends.  Jennifer Snyder here sharing a card created with Maja Design’s amazing collection, “Traditional Christmas”.  This is a vintage style camper coffee/cocoa food truck.

This card actually uses a combination of the 12×12 and 6×6 paper pads.  I preferred the smaller designs found on the 6×6 papers for the tiny die cut detail work.

Here is what the collection looks like:

The papers used from this collection are: “Family Gathering”, “Beautifully Decorated” , “by the Fireplace”.

The die set is from Spellbinders, to help kick off some Christmas holiday card making ideas.

 

Enjoy the rest of summer! But I want you to know it’s still OK to think about Christmas card making.

Greetings friends.  Jennifer Snyder here to share a summer card fresh from the Maja Design berry patch (or my scrap table).

This card was created using the Everyday Life collection and coordinating Monochrome collection, “Shades of Everyday Life“.  This collection has quickly become a favorite of mine for it’s versatility.  I have used this for Christmas cards, patriotic cards and now a fun, fresh summer card.

Here are some of the sheets used for this card:  Gardening (both A and B sides) and Coffee Break (both A and B sides of paper).

Thank you for stopping for a visit.  You are valued and treasured.  Happy crafting.

Flag Shaker Card with Instructions – Using Everyday Life Collection

Welcome friends.  Jennifer Snyder here to share a shaker card made with Maja Design’s Everyday Life Collection.  This is a wonderful collection filled with warm summer/autumn images and colors.

Today I have a shake card in an “Americana” style, which simply means a shabby chic patriotic style featuring the American Flag.  While Maja Design is a Swedish company, we LOVE Maja Design in the U.S. and all around the world!    My point is to show how a little imagination can transform the papers to meet your particular needs.

Hope, Believe, Cherish!

Here are the individual papers used from the collection: Hugs & Kisses (both A and B sides), Indoors 2, Home Sweet Home (both A and B side), Art Journaling.

Below is a simple image of how easy this was to create.

I made the base card, then cut out the square to be used for the shaker.  The tulle netting will be the window for the shaker.  Yep, tulle netting is great to use for simple, quick shakers because it has “slack” or allows for space to let shaker mix move freely.

Instructions: 

1. Cut a piece of tulle netting big enough to wrap around the paper square.

2. Wrap the tulle around the paper square like a present,  then secure the netting on the back with double sided tape – leave one side open for filling.

3. Fill with fun shaker mix  ( I used Crystalz from Buttons Galore and More) and make sure all sides are glued/taped down so mix doesn’t spill out.

 

 

I finished off the card with a 3D shooting star button from Buttons Galore, and also with some of the journaling words  cut from the fabulous Journaling Sheet in the collection.  See the image below.  Isn’t that a cool sheet for so many uses.

Thanks for stopping here.  Happy crafting.

Hello Maja Design Friends.  This is Jennifer Snyder sharing Christmas in July created by pairing papers from two different Maja Design collections – Everyday Life and Bohemian Harmony.

It’s true both collections are not holiday themed, but that is the brilliance of Maja Design papers.  They are very versatile.  Here are the sheets used today:

 EveryDay Life Collection “Off to Work”  paired with a sheet from the Bohemian Harmony collection, “Show gratitude”.

The die set is from Spellbinders and is a new release to celebrate Christmas in July.  I love the rustic feel from the Maja Design papers.

 

Happy Summer – stay cool and crafty,  friends.
