Jennifer Snyder here to share a magical unicorn moment with Maja Design’s Enjoying Outdoors collection.

My sentiment reads : “It’s going to be a rainbows and unicorns kind of day.”
Some days are meant to be extra special.
Beautiful Maja Design papers can also help to make a day extra special.

 
The Enjoying Outdoors collection has rich purples and greens that make me think of unicorns.  I am not sure why I connect purple with unicorns, but I do.
That’s the very reason I selected this paper. These are the 12×12 pieces I used from the collection:
Flourishing
Woodlands
The Great Nature

The dimensional die used on this card is from Spellbinders and Becca Feeken.  The Unicorn die is also from Spellbinders.  The  die set is mean to fold flat  to fit into an envelope.

This is an image of the multiple layers of the card – the layers which make the card dimensional.  Scrolling down, the next image down shows the card folding flat for placing in an envelope.

  Thanks for stopping here today.  I hope your day is filled with rainbows, unicorns and beautiful Maja Design papers.

Jennifer Snyder here to share a pretty purple card I made using  the Enjoying Outdoors collection from Maja Design.
This collection features exquisite shades of purples and greens making a fun and versatile collection.  The images on the collection inspire year-round crafting possibilities.
I’m a purple fan so the papers in Enjoying Outdoors really speaks to me.
The image above shows the papers I used from Maja Design – Enjoying Outdoors.  Click here to see the entire collection of gorgeous papers.
Maja Design – What a Beautiful Day (12×12 size)
Maja Design –  Picking Flowers ( both A and B side 12×12 size)
The design has beautiful delicate details.  Because of this, I left my embellishments on the plain and simple side so that the papers had an opportunity to shine.
 
A little about the accents on this card…the  featured embellishment I chose is a chipboard butterfly from Creative Embellishments.  I left the chipboard piece in it’s original color with no treatments because the kraft color of the chipboard was a nice accent.
The decorative circle die is from Graphic 45 – Staples Collection – Square Tag and Clock.  I chose to leave out the clock face.
I also have some pink adhesive pearls as finishing touches and hemp cord to add an element of nature to the card. .
Where can you find these papers?

Thank you for stopping here today.  Happy Crafting.

Purple Makes Me Smile

Hello friends.  Jennifer Snyder with you today to share my heart card created using the Enjoying Outdoors collection from Maja Design.
These are the papers I used from the Enjoying Outdoors collection:
Singing in the Rain (A and B sides of paper)
There is No Bad Weather
I have to smile because the name of one of the sheets of paper I used is called “There is No Bad Weather”.
That is soooooooooo true when you are sitting at your crafting table and making some paper projects.  There just is no bad weather – it’s always a perfect time to scrap.  And even better when you are playing with Maja papers.
These are just gorgeous colors and they make me happy.  This collection is a MUST for anyone who loves purple.  This is sure to make you scrap-happy.
 I embellished my card with die cuts from Spellbinders – Sew Sweet Valentine set.  I wove hemp twine through the holes in the heart die to add more natural elements to the card.
Here is one last look at the completed card.  Ahhh those colors!
I love photo images that provide a look at the dimension of the card.  This one is pretty flat and quite easy to mail and yet rich with texture.
Thank you for sharing a piece of your day with Maja Design.

Hello creative friends!

Today I want to explain how you can create a vintage romance layout with an altered 3D frame as your central focal point.

I create a very simple layout because the paper alone gives all the magic effect.

I think is one of my fav in this collection ‘Enjoying Outdoors’ – ‘Singing in the rain’.

I love the beautiful edge design and the girl on the right side and I like people who smile when it’s raining.

Times are not always easy, but I always try to make the most of it.

Take a break from the hectic everyday life and relax.

I started by creating an altered frame for my photo.

Want to see how I made this? Here I have some photos from the making.

Snapguide How to an Altered 3D Frame

Now to the background, first I primed with clear gesso, then I used Distress ink ‘Seedless preserves’ on a stencil, it’s the same colour how you can find on this paper sheet.

Next, I added a Glimmer Mist Spray ‘Kiwi’ from Tattered Angels

to the background arround the area of the photo.

then I use two die cuts to add more dimension

(Wordlet ‘Do what you love’ and ‘Girl under umbrella’)

with papers from ‘Vintage Romance’.

Afterwards I choose some embellishments to decorate this romance layout,

for instance from Prima Marketing (garden gates, butterfly), flowers, lace, fabric leftovers,

water drops, little resin flowers.

I builded a small cluster on the right side under the photo.

suitable to the titel ‘singing in the rain’ I added some pearl drops and another umbrella from a die cut, as well as a clockface

from the ‘No. XVI’ (Vintage Autumn Basics) above with a glass cabochon.

The ‘Welcome’ sign is a photo cutout with a underlaid folder music paper sheet.

3D look

This project was so much fun to create and I love the 3D effect that you can build up.

Questions??? you’re welcome :-)!

I hope my project can give you some inspiration for your work with Maja Design papers.

What is your favourite paper sheet??

Have a beautiful day!
