Hello, dear Maja friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

The weather this winter is very weird, no snow or frost, just dull rainy days. It might make you pretty discouraged, and I think there’s no better way to overcome blue feelings than the colour therapy 🙂 And Maja Design’s latest collection, Little Street Cafe, is just perfect for the task, with those juicy purples, yellows and oranges! Today I have a very colourful wedding exploding box to share using these optimistic papers:

I think the flowery pattern of the Always Time sheet is so beautiful! I covered the outside walls of the box with panels of it paired with plaids of the Coffee Al Fresco and Delicious papers:

I tried to mimick the flower bouquet of the paper on the lid of the box:

Inside walls are covered with charming polka dots pattern and tiny flowers:

As exploding boxes often serve as practical (and beautiful at the same time 😉 ) means of giving money to the newlyweds, so I usually put pockets on the walls and suggest some goals, like “for a dream journey”, “for a baby crib”, “for the home”, etc.

There’s also a small panel for writing in wishes:

And as usually, there’s a chipboard “cake” in the centre of the box, this time with a couple as the topper:

I like how the colours of this collection complement one another to make a juicy optimistic combo. I think this exploding box would be perfect for a boho-style wedding. What do you think?

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Spellbinders; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; cake: Wycinanka.pl; bling: my stash.

 

Thank you for visiting today, don’t forget to drop by soon for more inspiration!

Hello Maja Design friends.  Jennifer Snyder here with you to share a card made using Maja Design’s the fresh fun “Little Street Cafe”.  This collection is cheery and filled with bold happiness, warm images, gold, purples, pinks and more.
Below are the papers used for the card.  You can see how beautiful the patterns are in the collection.
“Coffee al Fresco”
“Hot Drink”

 

 This card is for my best friend who is having a rough time lately.  Everyone needs a hug.  She’s been my friend since we met in college …..wow 35 years?  Could that be right?  Hmmm gotta check the math.  Yep – it’s correct.  That means a special card is required.

The flowers on the sheet called “Coffee al Fresco” are perfect for the occasion.

 

 

The necklace die is from Spellbinders.  It made for a super fun project.

Thanks for stopping here.
Send someone you love a card today!!  Happy crafting.

Baby it’s cold outside

Hi everyone! Finally I finished this card. It has been laying on my craft desk for ages… But now I manage to finish is, I hate to have something half done. But anyways, I have had the pleasure to put my fingers on this gorgeous collection from MajaDesign. It is just amazing!

As usual I colour my images with Distress Inks, re-inkers and Markers. And I think the Maja papers fits the distress colours so well!

The dies and image are from Magnolia. And I have added some Fran-tage around the image. I also put some white gesso on the papers and flowers.

I hope you enjoyed my little post, even if it was a bit short today. And late… But it is soon weekend, and I look so forward to it!! Wish you all a very happy weekend to come! And thank you so much for visiting the MajaDesign blog today.

With love,

Sending Valentine’s Love

 Hello Maja Design friends.  Jennifer Snyder here to share a Valentine’s card created using the gorgeous new collection, Little Street Cafe.
This collection is fresh, cheery and full of springtime color.
Here are the papers used from the collection;
Coffee al Fresco
Tea Please ( A and B side)
Something Sweet
 This card is on the clean and simple side with the die cut “love” sentiment capturing all the attention.  I gave the die cut word some added interest by using the different patterns form the paper collection.  Hard to choose which patterns I wanted to use because they are all so lovely.

Maja Design also has a monochrome collection that coordinates perfectly with the colors of the Little Street Cafe collection, for those people like myself, who must have everything matching.

 

Thank you for stopping here today.

Hohoho Merry Christmas to all you Maja fans!

First I want to wish you all the very best for the upcoming holidays .

This will be my last post for this year and hope to see you all back  in the new  year .

I love to decorate my home  at christmas time  and make some decorations myself.

I made this banner using my favorite Christmas colors red and white from the new Christmas collection ,Holiday in the Alps and the monochromes of Holiday in the Alps.

I used a lot of shimmer and glitter , but with the dark and grey days at the moment and using artificial light it’s hard to catch it at the picture.

The letters , rosettes and lace-snowflakes are all treated with nuvo glitter accents.

Thank you for visiting , happy holidays and hope I see you back next year.
