 Jennifer Snyder here to share the spirit of Christmas, using the gorgeous holiday/winter collection from Maja Design- “Joyous Winterdays”.  


 Maja Design collections have one very important feature helping to make Maja Design the very best paper for your money.  Since each sheet is double sided, the backside of the papers tend to have patterns that can be used year round.  That means you get great value for your money.  That’s very important since the Christmas season is short.  

Above is an image of the Maja Design- “Joyous Winterdays” collection and the specific papers I used on my card. 
“Beautiful Pine”
“Pick a Tree”
“Make Decorations”
 
And then there is the beautiful vintage ephemera from the collection.  This gorgeous sheet of vintage images helps your card making process super easy.   You can complete some of your Christmas or winter cards done in a few minutes. 
 
Isn’t the paper simply lovely?  The vintage ephemera is perfect here.
You can shop for your Maja Design papers using the Store Finder Link right here.
Thanks for stopping to visit.  I’d like to wish you a wonderful Christmas and Holiday season filled with peace and joy.

Layout

 

Hello dear friends!

It’s Mary here with you today and I have a new layout to share with you. A Christmas page made with the new collection ”Joyous Winterdays”.

Photo 1

As usual, I found that photo on Pinterest and combined it with two papers of that gorgeous collection, lots of beautiful flowers, some chipboards and several Christmas embellishments. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

Photo 2

For my background, I used the ”Pick a Tree” paper on the back side and made two layers on it with torn pieces from the ”Outdoors” paper  using both sides of it. First, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with snowflake paste and a stencil. I continued by coloring my page with Lindy’s sprays ”Sea Grass Green” and ”Rusty Lantern Lime”.

Photo 3

I painted the snowflake chipboards with the opal magic ”Aqua-Rose” acrylic paint. The flourish chipboards and the title was also painted with the ”Fairy Wings” acrylic paint sparks. As usual all the chipboards I used are 2crafty.

Photo 4

When everything was glued down, I made some splatters with white gesso diluted with some water.

Welcome friends!
Baby, it’s could outside … because it’s Winter time :-)

Cozy time is coming! Time for long evenings with candlelight and good food. Time for

warm sweaters and cuddly socks.

I’m also a big fan from unique papers without motifs, because you have so many opportunities to create your background with stamps or watercolours and it’s always a perfect combination to all the other beautiful delicate papers from Maja Design.
First I primed the background with clear gesso, then I started by working my background with blue and white spray color ink and added some winter feeling stamps, like snowflakes, snowman, old trees.
used Maja Design papers from following collections

Joyous-Winterdays-P

942-Frost

946-Blizzard

Mono-Winterdays-P

955-Ice-blue-w-es

Denim-P

906-Wood

895-Stars-Stripes-bs

Hello Maja Design Friends,

I’ve got a couple of cards to share with you today – totally inspired by the snow in Winter

Wonderful_Winter_Cards

For my cards I used Vintage Winter collection , my number one among all of the beautiful Maja Christmas papers. Each year I can not pass by and create a bunch of cards with mostly blue colors.

Wonderful_Winter_Cards_01

I like the color combo of white and blue, it seems that I can feel how calm it is when the snow falls down

Wonderful_Winter_Cards_03

I’ve added the flowers on my cards, mostly white and silver grey, I guess they add the frosty feeling.

Wonderful_Winter_Cards_02

I also die cut the frames from the papers and the glittered cardstock, the snowflakes chipboard that I kept raw and the crochet doily

Wonderful_Winter_Cards_04

Hope you have liked my cards and enjoy this special time of the year.

Xmas Cards

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new project. Christmas is nearly there, and I was thinking that having a few more Xmas cards could be handy. And here I’m with a new set of cards with the Vintage Frost Basics.

Xmas Card by Pascale B.

Both cards are made the same way and are really simple to realize.

Xmas Card by Pascale B.

I cut two papers: one dark and one light. I cut the lighter slightly smaller than the dark one and I distress their edges.

Xmas Card by Pascale B.

I glue the lighter on top of the dark one. I cut some greeneries and mistletoes in different papers from the Vintage Frost Basics collection.

Then I glue the floral arrangement. And I die cut some letters to add “Merry Xmas”.
