Hi lovely Maja Design fans,

I sure hope you are all making some vacation memories even in these weird times. I was so happy that I got my Maja Design team box with this new amazing collection inside it, named “Miles Apart” it’s just so gorgeous and it will be released on the 10th of August just six more days and you can play with it yeahhh :-)….I can’t wait to see what you will all create with this amazing new line. Today i’d like to show you a layout I made with “Miles Apart” for this layout I used a picture of our two treasures Kevin & Abbey! I have to tell you all Kevin is just such a sweetheart to his little sister my heart melts when I see him playing with Abbey…

I am so happy that as a creative team member of Maja Design I already get to play with it before the release, and I am sure you will love it too. For the background paper I used the Stay Creative sheet and on top of that I used Thinking of you sheet. That last one I distressed like crazy with water and my hands and when it was dry I added some background stamps and a Dusty Attic stencil. Then I added some Lindy’s flat fabio spray {Chateau Rose} and some starburst spray {My Mojito Green}.

I also added some lace and cheesecloth do add dimension to my layout, to matt my picture I used the 6×6 paper pad….yes there is also a 6×6 pad yeahhhh 🙂 ! All the chipboard pieces are gessod and rust pasted at the end I used some paint also by the Dusty Attic and some finnabair waxes. And then came the favorite part of all adding my flowers I totally went overboard using four different packs of 49 and Market beauties. At the end I added a stamp {on my picture} and some metal pieces and art stones….

Maja Design papers used:

“Miles Apart”: Close at heart, Thinking of you, Be safe, Stay creative and the 6 x 6 paper pad.

I totally feel like a kid in a candy store sniffing the papers and going through every single sheet, and saying oeh and aahhhhh lol you must think I am nuts haha! Thank you so much for visiting the blog today and I hope you enjoyed looking at my work as much as I liked making it….have a wonderful week!

Love

Hi everyone! I hope you all are fine. I am back with a late night card. This time I have made a frame card with the gorgeous papers from the Vintage Summer Basics Collection. The paper you can spot the best on the card is called 1933 (with flowers).

I have painted this Sitting Tilda from Magnolia with Distress Ink, reinkers and Markers, to match the papers. I think both colours and papers fit so well together.

Inside the frame I have cut out a bird house from the papersheet called 1925. The same paper I have used on the base on the card.

The text “Gratulerer” on top of the card is made from a die from Papirdesign, and means “Congratulations”.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have painted the flowers and papers with White Gesso, to give the card a more shabby look.

Under you can see how I have put the card together, as I have first made the frame, and then fasten it to the card.

Thats all from me tonight! Stay safe!

With love,

Card For A Friend

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

With all this lockdown thing, as cumbersome as it is, there is one thing positive, I think. We started to notice and appreciate many things in life we’ve so far taken for granted. Going out for dinner, attending a concert, visiting a museum or even a shopping mall – and most of all – meeting with family and friends. We’ve seemed to have forgotten how important that little everyday joys mean to us and now we value them again. I also have some dear friends that I think of more often than I used to. And therefore todya I’m bringing you a card for a friend.

For this card I used the Little Street Cafe collection – that is perfect for a garden scene too 🙂 (and one of the papers is called “Meeting friends”! 🙂 )

I layered some of the flowery patterns from the collection and mixed them with plain Monochrome sheets. My friend is a keen gardener, so I thought this stamped girl image would be perfect for her!

I made a plant using a rose heart mold and a plant pot die cut. I coloured the heart with dye ink markers and covered with glitter, then I “planted” it with a glitter cardstock strip 🙂

Then I added a stamped sentiment and some mini roses:

To finish the card I added some sequins in between the paper layers.

 

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Joy!, Crea-Lies; stamp: Arine by Lemonade; roses: Wild Orchid Crafts; sequins, bling: my stash.

I do hope my friends would like the card! What do you think?

See you soon!

Christmas In July – Shaker Cards

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.
