Hello Maja Design Friends.   Jennifer Snyder here to share a snowy welcome to the Holidays.
I used a combination of Maja Design collections to make my holiday card vision be successful.
Here is the list of collections and papers used.  It really highlights how well Maja Design collections and coordinate and be used together.

 

 

I love making winter cards -and especially love Christmas cards with winter scenes.   The funny thing is I don’t like snow that much.  Sure I love it on a card but not on the ground.
The beautiful door die was made using Spellbinders Large Die of the Month for October, and is embellished with sequins and 3D Buttons from Buttons Galore.
The darling snowman was cut from Maja Design ‘s  Holiday in The Alps – Winter Ephemera.  The images on this sheet are fabulous.

 

The door on this card was designed to swing open.   When opened, you are joyfully greeted  by another sweet ephemera image from Maja Design – Joyous Winterdays – Ephemera.   The little boy is ready to toss a snowball .  So sweet.  
Happy Crafting.

Congratulations

Hi everyone! I hope you all are fine. I am back with a late night card. This time I have made a frame card with the gorgeous papers from the Vintage Summer Basics Collection. The paper you can spot the best on the card is called 1933 (with flowers).

I have painted this Sitting Tilda from Magnolia with Distress Ink, reinkers and Markers, to match the papers. I think both colours and papers fit so well together.

Inside the frame I have cut out a bird house from the papersheet called 1925. The same paper I have used on the base on the card.

The text “Gratulerer” on top of the card is made from a die from Papirdesign, and means “Congratulations”.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have painted the flowers and papers with White Gesso, to give the card a more shabby look.

Under you can see how I have put the card together, as I have first made the frame, and then fasten it to the card.

Thats all from me tonight! Stay safe!

With love,

Sea View

Welcome dear creative Maja friends!

Today a mixed media layout in shabby chic style as memory on wonderful days

with our little sunshine ‘Filou’ by the sea.

I was inspired to create a maritim inspired layout,

where I used some wooden shapes (Calico Craft Parts), cutting dies,

origin beach sand and self-assembled shells :-).

used paper collections

 

as background paper Monochromes – Shades of Celebration – Vintage Teal

for cutting and embossing elements Mono Celebration Pearl

Denim-P

‘Streetware’

 Vintage-Summer-Basics-P

 

‘1905’

some close up’s 

 a photo cutout backed with three punched flags

  I used a 3D embossing folder ‘Flourish’ (Sizzix) as amazing waves

 behind the photo you can see a rising sun made with 3D Impresslits ‘Radiant’ (Sizzix)

 

 sand, shells, jute and some driftwood were all glued on with Heavy Gel Medium (DecoArt)

I wanted a weathered look for the four edges, so I used some remnants

 of punched out forms,

after gluing I painted over the edges of the pages

with a white thin crackle medium and palette knife.

Thanks for your visit!

Happy Summertime!

Kerstin

Hello Maja Fans,

I hope that all of you and your family members keep safe during this uncertain time. And today I am going to bring you a spirit of Spring inspiration.

I found a box full of paper cuts and and a few die cuts made of Maja Design papers and decided to use them all before I start cutting the new papers. and here what I have made:

So I mixed the papers from the different collections, mostly Vintage Spring and Summer Basics, what I have used to do all the time.

I have added a few flowers and chipboard pieces

But the papers are essential. since they have the floral print and soft colors.

I do believe that you are busy with crafting since we have more space time now.

so happy crafting and keep safe.

Hello Maja Fans.

Lenet here today,As we look outside in nature we can see Spring is just around the corner.  The early snowdrops are in bloom and the crocus and

grape hyacinth are showing so won”t be long to be there too.

I even saw some some Daffodils in full bloom . At the shops and markets are selling the first tulips, for me that is the real sign that it will be spring soon.

So I made you this lay out using some delicate flowers and green buds ready to burst.

Here a close up, the little dark pink flowers are real dried flowers I saved from a bouquet my Husband gave me for our 25th anniversary.

so I got flowers and craft supplies in one.

For this layout I used  the Vintage Summer Basic collection.  Flowers from 49 and market and from my stash and cheesecloth .

Sentimenst are from Tim Holz small talk. the doilys are made with a summer feelings die from Studio Light.

Thank you for visiting, I hope you like what I made for you.
