Hello Friends!.  Jennifer Snyder here to share a winter Holiday card with a stronger feel.  I am trying to focus on making some cards I can send to my sons who live far away in the mountains.  While they appreciate my cards, I think they would be happy with less flowers and lace – something a bit more masculine occasionally.

 

The paper I chose for this card is from Maja Design’s “Winter is Coming” Collection and coordinating Monochrome collection, “Shades of Winter”.

 

Nothing says mountain nature more than  the paper I used : The A and B sides of “Beautiful Scenery”

                          Beautiful sceneryBeautiful scenery-bs

 

Today I created two cards – one with snow and one without snow to visually show the difference. Which is your favorite? My husband prefers the snow covered pinecone while I prefer the one without snow.

The pinecone and evergreen die is from Spellbinders flora collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn.

 

Thanks for stopping here today to visit.

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

The weather is slowly changing into dull, rainy and cool, but I’m not ready yet to leave the summer behind 😉 And so today I bring you a cheerful summer wishes card made using the very summery Tropical Garden collection:

I layered background papers, applied a stencil pattern on top and added a shaker box balloon filled with sequins, hand-cut tags and a flowers cluster including a bouquet cut out from one of the sheets:

I finished the card off with a chipboard sentiment embossed with white ep.

 

I really like the dimension the card has, though it will require making a box too 😉

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: 49&Market, my stash; chipboard, stencil, embossing powder: Agateria; vintage ribbon, sequins: my stash.

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later!

Hello  Sweet Maja Fans,

Lenet here and today I bring you this this layout .

I made this layout using the  wonderful papers of  the Summer Crush collection.

I layered some sheets and distressed the edges.  For the top sheet I used my sewing machine and zigzagged it on to the other sheets.

The chippies I used are from Scrapaholics chipboards .I painted those in the color I wanted and gave them a top layer of clear embossingpowder.

The flowers I used are from Prima and 47andMarket.

 

I hope you like my layout, see you next time .

Berry Tongues

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

What is your childhood association with summertime? In my family it’s always been blackberry picking and eating, making blackberry pies, dumplings, jelly, eating them with sugar and cream… 🙂 So the singature look for summer kids in my family is a berry tongue! And it’s no different for my kids:

I used the Tropical Garden collection not only because it’s a perfect summer collection, but also because it features that perfect shade of berry purple 🙂 I matted the photo with bits of paper and hand-cut tags and added art clay fern leaves, “berry twigs” with mulberry leaves and die-cut berries 🙂 I also die-cut letters to arrange the title. I finished the layout by spraying some moss-green and gold mist.

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Craft&You Design, Marianne Design; leaves: 49&Market, mists: Prima, fern mold: Prosvet.

 

That’s all for today, see you soon!
