Hello friends.  Jennifer Snyder here today to share a frosty slimline card created using a classic Maja Design holiday collection, Winter is Coming. It’s NOT to early to start those holiday cards.

I really wanted to use a winter design that didn’t have traditional winter colors.  This collection was exactly what I needed.  The print on the paper is frosty but yet unique. I also used a sheet from the Monochrome Shades of Winter – Warm White .

Frosty mornings

Warm White

The dies and stamps are from Spellbinders new collections.  The Friendly Snowmen stamps were colored using Spellbinders colored pencils.

Thank you for stopping here today.  You are appreciated.  Happy crafting.

Baptism Exploding Box

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

Just like last time, today I bring you a Baptism inspiration, but this time I created a delicate baby girl exploding box:

For the box I combined the Celebration and Miles Apart collections, choosing some deliate floral patterns and neutral backgrounds:

I decorated the lid with a stamped and embossed sentiment and a flower cluster:

When you remove the lid, the box opens to reveal the inside:

I decorated the inned walls with die-cut motives, flower compositions and some stamped wishes. To add some glam, I used acrylic gems and iridescent sequins:

In the centre I put a box including a jewellery gift, but replaced the original box lid with a handmade one decorated with a die-cut doily and a signature strip pieces 🙂 The box is tied with ribbon that is attached to the exploding box bottom – this way you can remove the gift box without having to rip it off 😉

I think exploding boxes are best when you need to include a small gift or money – they work as both a card and gift box 🙂

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Agateria, Lemonade; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: Craft&You Design, Cheery Lynn Dies; gems: Marianne Design; ribbon: Rayher; sequins, string: my stash.

That’s all for today, see you next time!

Baptism Cards

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

A couple of years ago I made two Baptism cards using papers with very delicate patterns. Going through my pics the other day I found those cards and had that idea: how about making them a little bit more bold? So I selected some papers from the Miles Apart collection, changed the design just a tad – and boy, what a difference!

 

I love the cards’ refreshed look, delicate and light due to just a change of papers 🙂 Apart from that, I used stamped images of babies that I coloured with Distress inks, clusters of white flowers, ribbon and sequins.

One is for a girl:

…and one for a boy:

Do you sometimes go back to your old projects and remake them? 🙂

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Whiff of Joy, Lemonade; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon: Vintage Ribbon; sequins, waxed string: my stash.

 

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

Tropical Wedding Card

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

The summer this year spoils us – sometimes too much, really! – with hot weather. And it is also traditionally the most busy time of the year when weddings are concerned. And when you combine “hot summer” and “wedding” you can only get a tropical wedding card 😀

In Poland, when we describe a couple who is very much in love, we use a saying that can be translated as “inseparable parrots”. So it was a perfect motive for me to put on a wedding card! I cut out two birds from the “Major Mitchell” sheet and arranged a love scene, adding some more cut outs, a filigree chipboard heart and some dimensional flowers. To make the flower cluster look fuller, I stamped some leaves in the background paper to match the printed ones. I also stamped the sentiment “Forever” directly onto the paper. I finished the card with some vintage ribbon, string and acrylic gems.

The card is nicely dimensional too, due to mounting particular layers on foam dots of various heights.

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps, chipboard: Agateria; flowers, ribbon: Wild Orchid Crafts; acrylic gems, string: my stash.

 

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

Hello Sweet Maja Fans.

Lenet here  and today I bring you this layout, made with the celebration collection.

With everything going on I think it’s very important to look for the little postiteve things and celebrate them.

that’s why I chose to use  the ” The more you praise and Celebrate your life , the more there is in life to celebrate ”

quote on the strip from the Champagne sheet of the celebration collection.

The picture of the little girl inspired me to make this layout. She is smelling the delicate flowers and clearly enjoys them.

one of the things that I think should be celebrated in life, the beauty of mother nature.

 

 

 

Besides the wonderful Celebration collection I used chippies from  Scrapaholics, the Lattice pieces, the Ivy Vine Spray set,  and the Enjoy Life sentiment from  The Life Moments set.I colored them with  Embossing poweder from WOW and distress embossingpowder from ranger/ TimHoltz.

The flowers are from 49 And Market. The flatback button with the butterfly I made myself with the Button Press from WeR.

Thank you for visiting , hope you like my layout.

Stay Safe and hope to see you back.
