Hello Maja Friends,

August – my favorite Summer month, though it is the last before the dull and rainy days come. However I like it more than any month.
So that is why I enjoy looking through the pictures taken this summer and to create something that is associated with this particular month.

I combined several Summer collections for my Layout – Summertime, Summer Crush and Life in the Country.

I tried to keep the red and greens on my layout, using the paper layers, and added some embellishments of yellow and orange.

I also stretched the colors from the photo – soft blue and pumpkin and played with the acrylic paints .

I added some fussy cutting, though I mixed the greens and reds from almost the same patterned papers.

So it’s time to enjoy each and every day this Summer, hope you will follow my advice.

Hello Maja Friends,

It’s my time to share April inspiration

This time I mixed the papers from different collections, I like to do it from time to time, especially when I have some leftovers after I have finished working on the album

My idea was to create 2 cards, and when you join them together as if they were the parts of the same puzzle.

I mixed Vintage Summer Basics and Life in the Country collections, so perfect for Spring – Summer projects

I miss so much these colors – blue and greens after the long winter

Hope that soon we can enjoy these colors .

Have a good week end

Jennifer Snyder here today to share a cheery decorated box.

This box was a chocolate box I had saved from Christmas.  I ate the chocolates ( I may have even hid them from my family) and then saved the box as if I always had it.  I can be super sneaky that way where chocolates are concerned.

I grabbed the gorgeous Maja Design collection called Life in the Country. Such a happy cheery collection that makes me think of a summer picnic.

These are the papers I used from the collection and shown in the image below:
Porch, Summer Kitchen, Our Deer Summer Cottage

The top of the box is decorated with a gorgeously fabulous die from Spellbinders called Spellbinders Shapabilities Die – Heirloom Oval.
I added white cardstock behind the die to really make the design pop.

Along with the die cuts, the box is embellished with some exquisite flowers from  Petaloo, some gold shimmery ribbon and gold floral berries.

The side of the box also has a diecut from the same Spellbinders die set as used on the top of the box.  This view of the side provides an exquisite view of how wonderfully the patterns of the paper match and coordinate.

I added paper to the inside of the box as well.  Helps cover up the fact that I actually ate a whole box of chocolates.  Chocolates?  What chocolates.  Not me!  hahahaa

Another view of the top and the beautiful papers.

Hello Maja Friends,

Few days are left before the Spring ends and the summer officially comes.

I can not believe that finally I will enjoy the outdoor activities and hope that I will have time to craft at the same time.

For today’s post I prepared 5 cards.

Summer_Feeling_Cards_Maja_Design

I have a blast working on 5 cards at once. The reason is that I love so much Life in the country collection. It seems that the summer starts and I craft only with these particular papers.

I mixed red, green and cream brown colors for my cards. They remind me about berries, trees with the leaves and the wind whisper.

I have been waited so long for this time of Season.

My cards are almost the same  but they are different, as I didn’t use any similar sketch for them.

Summer_Feeling_Cards_Maja_Design4

They are mostly celebration cards, I made different sentiments for them as – Congratulations, Anniversary and Birthday.

I do like to have several cards by hand for any occasion, and working on the cards at once gives me the chance to be ready for any special date.

My recipe for this kind of cards is:

few flowers, string, some dies.

Adding some craft elements can make it look more bright.

Hi lovely friends,

Today I would like to share some cards with you using different Maja Design collections. I have to say I am totally hooked on using Maja Design papers so for every project I make I always think which of their collections will fit my theme…..all the cards I will show you today where made for my DT work at Cheery Lynn Designs {a die manufacturer}! But using my precious Maja Design papers……

Sweet Love:

For this shaker card I used the pretty “Vintage Romance” collection and just plain creme card stock and a bunch of dies. I really love the dimension of the flowers that’s what the papers do because of the high quality they are.

For my third card I used the amazing “Vintage Autumn Basics” collection and for the centers of my flowers I used micro beads which I think worked out really pretty. The background sheet with the blue flowers is one of my favorite papers from this collection.
