Hello Friends!.  Jennifer Snyder here to share a winter Holiday card with a stronger feel.  I am trying to focus on making some cards I can send to my sons who live far away in the mountains.  While they appreciate my cards, I think they would be happy with less flowers and lace – something a bit more masculine occasionally.

 

The paper I chose for this card is from Maja Design’s “Winter is Coming” Collection and coordinating Monochrome collection, “Shades of Winter”.

 

Nothing says mountain nature more than  the paper I used : The A and B sides of “Beautiful Scenery”

Today I created two cards – one with snow and one without snow to visually show the difference. Which is your favorite? My husband prefers the snow covered pinecone while I prefer the one without snow.

The pinecone and evergreen die is from Spellbinders flora collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn.

 

Thanks for stopping here today to visit.

Hello friends.  Jennifer Snyder here today to share a frosty slimline card created using a classic Maja Design holiday collection, Winter is Coming. It’s NOT to early to start those holiday cards.

I really wanted to use a winter design that didn’t have traditional winter colors.  This collection was exactly what I needed.  The print on the paper is frosty but yet unique. I also used a sheet from the Monochrome Shades of Winter – Warm White .

Frosty mornings

The dies and stamps are from Spellbinders new collections.  The Friendly Snowmen stamps were colored using Spellbinders colored pencils.

Thank you for stopping here today.  You are appreciated.  Happy crafting.

 

 

 

Baptism Cards

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

A couple of years ago I made two Baptism cards using papers with very delicate patterns. Going through my pics the other day I found those cards and had that idea: how about making them a little bit more bold? So I selected some papers from the Miles Apart collection, changed the design just a tad – and boy, what a difference!

 

I love the cards’ refreshed look, delicate and light due to just a change of papers 🙂 Apart from that, I used stamped images of babies that I coloured with Distress inks, clusters of white flowers, ribbon and sequins.

One is for a girl:

…and one for a boy:

Do you sometimes go back to your old projects and remake them? 🙂

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Whiff of Joy, Lemonade; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon: Vintage Ribbon; sequins, waxed string: my stash.

 

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

Enjoy Life.

Hello Sweet Maja Fans.

Lenet here  and today I bring you this layout, made with the celebration collection.

With everything going on I think it’s very important to look for the little postiteve things and celebrate them.

that’s why I chose to use  the ” The more you praise and Celebrate your life , the more there is in life to celebrate ”

quote on the strip from the Champagne sheet of the celebration collection.

The picture of the little girl inspired me to make this layout. She is smelling the delicate flowers and clearly enjoys them.

one of the things that I think should be celebrated in life, the beauty of mother nature.

 

 

 

Besides the wonderful Celebration collection I used chippies from  Scrapaholics, the Lattice pieces, the Ivy Vine Spray set,  and the Enjoy Life sentiment from  The Life Moments set.I colored them with  Embossing poweder from WOW and distress embossingpowder from ranger/ TimHoltz.

The flowers are from 49 And Market. The flatback button with the butterfly I made myself with the Button Press from WeR.

Thank you for visiting , hope you like my layout.

Stay Safe and hope to see you back.
