Box Full of Hearts

Good morning, dear Maja friends, welcome to the blog today ūüôā

I’m sure you’re well aware of the day we’re going to celebrate on Thursday. But whether you celebrate St. Valentine’s Day or you consider it purely commercial crap, love is something always worth celebrating! And appreciating someone whom you love and who loves you is always precious ūüôā Giving something you made yourself is the best way to show your feelings, whcih can’t go unnoticed. And here’s a pop-up box card I made for this occasion using the Christmas Season collection.

This orignal card form is flat when closed:

As this is the outer side, I decorated it subtly with alternating paper patterns and a small rose bouquet with a charm heart:

When open, the flat card becomes a box that stands on its own, and the upper flaps fold down to reveal the inside:

The secret lies in strips of paper attached inside the box body, which support a selection of elements: quite a few hearts, a die-cut “I love you” sign:

…and a cherub as well as mini postcards I cut out of one of the mini pad sheets and a post stamp image:

I extended the heart pattern with mini hearts on the front flap:

The side flaps feature rose images that correspond with the roses on the outside:

The message of the box is quite clear, but if you wanted to add something, there’s a tag in a pocket on the back, non-folding wall:

I really like the way it turned out, sweet and lovely ūüôā

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Sizzix, Cottage Cutz, Impression Obsession; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; twine: Divine Twine; charm, ribbon: my stash.

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting – and don’t forget to spread some love every day!

 Jennifer Snyder here to wish you a healthy and happy new year.
I’d like to show you how Maja Design’s Christmas Season collection can be used all year round.¬† ¬†“Christmas Season” is only a name – don’t let it confuse you.¬† ¬†Maja Design has provided amazing timeless designs on the “B” sides of the paper so you can craft with the collection all year long – getting the most value for your money.
Here are the papers I used from Maja Design –¬†Christmas Season¬†:
Family Reunion (B side)
Hang Up the Stockings (B side)
Gift Shopping
I created a tri-fold card using an assortment of papers from the collection along with a new die from Spellbinders created by Becca Feeken.
Lovely die Рlovely paper Рthey go together perfectly. 

Here is a close up of the cover of my card.  The customized flowers were made from the Spellbinders die using the Maja Design papers.

The is the inside of the tri-fold card.¬† It shows how versatile the “B” side of the papers are.

Have a crafty new year.  Thanks for stopping today.

Hello Sweet Maja Fans ,

First I want to wish you all a very Happy and creative New year. I hope you had a wonderful Holiday Season.

I’m having¬† a bit of a hard time to say goodbye to it. I always love that time of the year.

So one more Christmas post from me for closure and to start with the new year.

As you see no layout , card or minialbum but  a altered clock. I bought this  one a while ago at the dollar store , and is was waiting for the perfect opportunity  to come along .

When I got the latest collection Christmas Season collection I knew I had to use them for this project.

Here you have a closeup from the top of the clock.

And one close up from the bottom.  The christmas cards are cut out of the Greeting Cards sheet.

And one fromthe side.

I hope you like my Clock. I keep it at my craft room as a countdown to next Holiday season.

Happy  and Creative New year!!

Holly and Stockings

The Maja Design Monochrome papers are always a perfect match.  They are a great combination to enhance the collection.
Maja Design is known for the amazing versatility of their papers.¬† While¬† this may be called “Christmas Season”, I promise you won’t be putting this paper collection away with your decorations once the holidays are over.
The “B” sides of every sheet have designs that can be used through the year.¬† That makes Maja’s papers a great value.
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas.

A tool drawer for Daddy

Hi there! Not a Christmas project from me today, hope it is ok?! I just wanted to show you the tool drawer I made for a Father’s Day card. I have used the Denim & Friends collection. Here you find papers for every masculine project.

The dies are from Magnolia. As for the image. I have used Distress Ink for my colouring.

To make this I have folded a box, where the sides measures 4×8 cm and 8×8 cm.

The metal frame is from Wild Orchid Crafts and I have painted here and there with White Gesso.

I am trying to find the time to make some Christmas cards aswell, but this weekend I have been baking Christmas cookies. Maybe I will find some time this evening.

This project was also published in the magazine Ett Trykk. Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog!

With love,
