Hello Maja Design friends.  Jennifer Snyder here with you to share a card made using Maja Design’s the fresh fun “Little Street Cafe”.  This collection is cheery and filled with bold happiness, warm images, gold, purples, pinks and more.
Below are the papers used for the card.  You can see how beautiful the patterns are in the collection.
“Coffee al Fresco”
“Hot Drink”

 

 This card is for my best friend who is having a rough time lately.  Everyone needs a hug.  She’s been my friend since we met in college …..wow 35 years?  Could that be right?  Hmmm gotta check the math.  Yep – it’s correct.  That means a special card is required.

The flowers on the sheet called “Coffee al Fresco” are perfect for the occasion.

 

 

The necklace die is from Spellbinders.  It made for a super fun project.

Thanks for stopping here.
Send someone you love a card today!!  Happy crafting.

 Hello Maja Design friends.  Jennifer Snyder here to share a Valentine’s card created using the gorgeous new collection, Little Street Cafe.
This collection is fresh, cheery and full of springtime color.
Here are the papers used from the collection;
Coffee al Fresco
Tea Please ( A and B side)
Something Sweet
 This card is on the clean and simple side with the die cut “love” sentiment capturing all the attention.  I gave the die cut word some added interest by using the different patterns form the paper collection.  Hard to choose which patterns I wanted to use because they are all so lovely.

Maja Design also has a monochrome collection that coordinates perfectly with the colors of the Little Street Cafe collection, for those people like myself, who must have everything matching.

 

Thank you for stopping here today.

Jennifer Snyder here to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season.  Today I am presenting a holiday home decor that has been made more extraordinary by using Maja Design paper and a few embellishments
 
I’m finishing the decorating and last minute Christmas gifts.  I picked up an inexpensive piece on clearance and flipped it around to use the other side.   Scroll down to see the before and after comparison. 
Here is my process from start to end.
I used the Maja Design, Holiday in the Alps 12×12 paper collection for the background of this piece.  The images and patterns in this paper collection are so peaceful and present a calm winter’s night.
These are the papers used:
Christmas Day
Winter Night
A little more about this piece and how it started.  Below is the image of the original home decor seasonal plaque.  Everything is on clearance this time of year and who doesn’t love a Christmas clearance section in the store!  The great thing about the plaque is that it is very deep and thick to make for a perfect shadow box when turned around to the backside.   These are things I think about when shopping.  It may look like Christmas today, but can this be painted and altered for use as a summer project?   If possible and inexpensive, then in the shopping cart it goes.
With a little glue, my gorgeous Maja design papers, and some other fabulous products,  it gets a total makeover.
Thank you for stopping here and Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday and peaceful 2020.

The vintage images are enchanting and the rich colors add such an elegant touch.

Jennifer Snyder here to share a project I made using the new Holiday in the Alps collection.  This is such a gorgeous collection to see up close, with amazing patterns, rich reds and frosty blues.
I created a home decor decorated box to fill with candy or a small gift.  This box is unique because the lid has a beautiful shaker finishing the top of the box.  The coordinating patterns in the Maja Design collections are always perfect for fabulous layered projects.
Here are the papers used on this decorated box:
Let it Snow ( A and B side of paper)
Snowmen

 The box has been decorated using a combination of chipboard snowflakes from Creative Embellishments, and 3D Buttons from Buttons Galore and More.

I’ve added a vintage shaped snowflake shaker from Creative Embellishments to the top of the box that completes the frosty winter theme of the box.
If you look at the bottom of the image below, you’ll see a strip of paper around the edge of the box lid.  This is one of those wonderful  decorative edges that Maja places on the bottom of all sheets of  paper. One side of the strip has the paper collection name and bar code.  The other side always has a delightful pattern.  I try and save the strips because they are perfect for finishing touches on projects and cards.
Thanks for stopping here.  I wish you a wonderful holiday Christmas season and happy crafting.
