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

The weather has been quite unsteady recently, with cold wind, freezing rain and snow mixed with beautiful sunshine, which is rather typical for this time of the year in Poland 🙂 And so it happens that I’m sharing a winter-time layout on a beautiful spring day! But even though I used a photo taken during Christmas and a winter collection, Holiday in the Alps, with Maja papers characteristic versatility it’s all universal.

I first applied some handwriting pattern with a stencil and gold pearl paste upon the background Monochrome paper and then added a layered cluster of paper pieces and hand-made tags to mat the photo:

I added some flowers in between the layers and some epoxy stickers that perfectly match the stencil paste. Then I arranged the title with alpha stickers mounted on foam:

I completed the page with some metal and art clay elements and sequins for a bit of subtle glam:

I often use flowers in boy layouts and so I did here and I think it still looks pretty masculine 🙂 What do you think?

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stencil: Agateria; paste: Stamperia; flowers: Blue Fern Studios, Wild Orchid Crafts; metal pieces: Mitform; stickers: October Afternoon, Heidi Swapp; sequins: DpCraft.

 

That’s all for today, have a nice weekend and stay safe!

Hello Maja Design Friends.  Jennifer Snyder here celebrating Spring with some floral cards.

Today I combined two Maja Design collections to create my cards; the Little Street Cafe Collection, Fika collection and Miles Apart. These are the individual sheets from the collections:   “Feeling Good” paper from Little Street Cafe; “Be Safe” and “Distance” from Miles Apart; and “Hemgjord saft” from Fika.

     Be safe 

 

The first spring card combines the yellow/gold color from Little Street Cafe with the beautiful purple tones of Fika.

The dies for the flowers are from Spellbinders.

 

 

This card uses the papers from Miles Apart.  The delicate foliage pattern looks great with pink gingham paper.

I adore gingham as if that were not obvious  in the brown gingham ribbon on the first card as well as the pink gingham ribbon on this card.

 

 

Thank you for stopping here.

 

I Love You

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog!

Today I bring you another love inspiration – though not about a romantic love, yet all the same beautiful 🙂

I made the layout using the Holiday in the Alps collection. I first applied heart garland pattern upon the background paper and then arranged the matting cluster of layered papers, hand cut tags and filigree chipboard doilies.

I added roses, a clock button and chipboard key and title word embossed with gold ep.

I finished my page off with metallic red pearls and matte gold sequins.

Here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Desgin papers:

Other: stencil, chipboard pieces: Agateria; glitter paste: Pentart; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; punch: DP Craft; button: Prosvet.

 

I really like how the layout turned out, bright and cheerful, and I really how the versatility of Maja papers which can be used for various themes regardless of the collection theme!

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

 

Sending a Hug – Slide Card using Miles Apart Collection

Hello friends.  Jennifer Snyder here today to share a slider greeting card created using the 6×6 paper pad from the ” Miles Apart” collection.  My choice in using this collection rises from a dark and gloomy winter in the COVID era.  I believe everyone could use both Spring and a hug.  This collection makes me think of both with gorgeous florals and delicate prints combined in lovely soft colors.

The images of the papers from the 6×6 paper pad are below:  “Distance” A and B side of paper, and “Stay Creative”.  I also featured the Monochrome collection, Shades of Miles”.  The matching solids are perfectly coordinated for the Miles Apart papers and help make crafting easier.

Distance

This is a slider card with flaps that pull from the sides to create a stage with a scene when opened.  I am sure this will bring a smile to to person who slides it open revealing a hug.

The dies used in this card are from Spellbinders brand new “Make A Scene” collection by Becca Feeken.  There are several scenes to make but I choose the window scene overlooking my Maja Design garden.

Happy crafting my friends.  I hope you have a fabulous day.

Hello Maja Design friends.  Today I present a card using on of my favorite Maja Design collections – Little Street Cafe.  I love the rich warm colors of the collection.  They feel joyful.

Take a look at the names of the papers used on the card.  The names even make me feel happy and warm:

Sunshine, Hot Drinks, Feeling Good, Something Sweet

The adorable dog stamp is “Let’s Get Cozy” from Spellbinders.  It was stamped on to watercolor paper and colored with watercolor pencils.  Next, the shaker mix is from Buttons Galore and More.  The stamped sentiment is from Stampendous Puppy Frame stamp set.

Thank you for stopping here.  Happy Crafting.
