 Hello.  Jennifer Snyder here to share a little sunshine and warmth on a blustery cold winter day.  It’s only January but I still look toward the summer sunshine.  In my opinion, it’s never too soon to daydream about the summer.

To help my summer mood,  I am using the gorgeous Summertime collection by Maja Design.
The Summertime collection features beautiful raspberry pinks and reds with soft blues.
Here are the sheets I used from the Summertime paper collection:
Flowers Everywhere (A and B side of paper)
Garden Bouquet (A and B side of paper)
The nested medallions were created using Spellbinders dies.

 When you are working with beautiful papers, it’s easy to see that even simple cards have grace and will make someone smile.   

Thanks for stopping at Maja Design.  Happy crafting.

Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

So nice of you to visit the Maja Design blog today, I am back again posting on this lovely blog, it’s been a while since my last post. Hope you did not miss me too much ;-). For today I have a layout to share that I made for a nice lady who contacted me because she wanted to give her parents a present for their 50th year wedding anniversary. I did replace the pictures because she did not wanted them online….on the pictures you see my parents in law.

I took the dark blues and soft yellow tones from both collections because I think that is a lovely combination. The chipboard I used are off course The Dusty Attic & the flowers are by 49 and Market. On the background I used several stencils by different companies. Let’s have a closer look.

Hope you liked my post and I let your creating juices flowing…..love to see you soon! And I wish you a wonderful day…soon I have some amazing news keep you posted.

Welcome!

I was inspired to create a mixed media layout to a very essential thing of my life.

Coffee the most important meal of my day, nothing works without it.
Sure, you know it too.

 It’s a very good mood maker in the morning, my daily needed vitamin drink ;-). 

A friend says, yes, that layout is the right new wall decoration for my kitchen.

Why not, only the right picture frame is missing.


I used some Maja papers from the Fika Collection

some details

.. hmm, it smells like coffee 🙂

 

… and so that the whole thing gets a little flavor,

I have also processed real coffee powder

 

Of course, some origin coffee beans shouldn’t be missing, or?!

 Duty calls – tell her, I’ll call you back!

 😉 🙂 😉

 Thanks for your visit!

Have a good time!

Hello Maja Friends,

it’s snowing and chilling outside, and I feel that I miss Summertime already

So that is why I chose Summertime collection for my post today

I like doing fussy cutting for my cards, so I kept on doing this time too. The roses and the florals are really delicate and so beautiful

I’ve added some flower embellishments too

But made all the cards different

For my second card I made die cutting and used the cardstock from  Monochromes Shades of Denim

They match each other perfectly

I kept the blue color palette as primary color but added the coral shades too

Also I made stamping on the vellum and heat embossed the frames, that I cut out after.

Products used:

Summertime  and Monochromes Shades of Denim collections:

Spellbinders Die – Time Flies , Frames and Ovals, Prima Marketing Flowers, 2Crafty Chipboard.
The Ton Frame Stamps

Hi everyone! Today I want to show you a card that got published in the December issue of Ett Trykk. The challenge was to use the blue and white colour combo. And what wasn’t more perfect than to use these gorgeous Maja-papers from the beautiful collection Joyous Winterdays. And for the sledge and trees I have used sheets from the Monochromes papers in the same collection.

The whole card is made with a Go Kreate die. The circles around the image of cute Tilda is made with Spellbinder dies. The rest of the dies are from Magnolia. Magnolia have so many various dies that fit perfect to make lovely scenes with. I hope you like my card.

As usual I have added several layers to build up the card.

For this card I have also made the flowers myself, with gorgeous Maja-papers and Magnolia dies. The paper is first cut out, then I have sprayed some water on to the flowers, and curled them up. Let them to dry, and then curled them back up again. In the middle I have put some flower stamens from Wild Orchid crafts. I have also added some paint, white Gesso, all over the place.

For the 3D star I have used the paper called Blizzard bs.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

With love,
