Hello friends.  Jennifer Snyder celebrating Christmas in July. At the halfway mark to Christmas festivities and time starts moving quickly as we get closer.
I am trying hard to be prepared in advance this year.
With that, I hope I am inspiring you to start your projects early as well.
My cards feature the festive Maja Design Holiday in the Alps collection.
 
  This first card is a yummy gingerbread shaker card made with the following sheets of Holiday in the Alps :
Santa Clause A and B side
A New Year
Christmas Day
I combined three beautiful paper patterns from the Holiday in the Alps collection.  They coordinate so well together. to create a festive look.
The sweet gingerbread cookie shaker is from Creative Embellishments and has been filled with new shaker mix from Buttons Galore that look like tiny peppermint candy and gingerbread cookies.
So adorable.   There are also 3D buttons adorning the card from Buttons Galore and More.

    Here is a close up of the background papers and shaker mix.  It’s hard to  see the cool reindeer patterns on the paper at a distance.  The shaker mix is adorable as well.

The second card is more traditional with a stocking shaker and holiday wreath design.
The shaker is once again from Creative Embellishments wit the shaker mix from Buttons Galore’s new collection called Doo Dadz. .

 

 

 

Here is a close up showing the “Merry Christmas ” sentiment.  Have you ever noticed the beautiful borders Maja Design has on the bottom of every sheet of 12×12 paper?
Take a look at the bottom of each sheet.  One side has information regarding the paper and UPC code but the other side is a treasure.  The paper banners make great sentiments on cards.

 

 Thank you for stopping by for a little Christmas in July.
Happy crafting.

Hi everyone! I am back with a tag this time, using the lovely collection Coffee in the Arbour.

Lots of pink to match the pattern papers. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the image and dies used are from Magnolia.

The image is coloured with Distress Ink, reinkers and Markers.

I have added some corrugated papers behind the image. And painted with white Gesso here and there.

A beautiful butterfly cut out twice to make the double wings.

Some tags where I have used Bazzill paper, and added a pink ring made of Maja papers.

 

The text is embossed with white embossing powder and a heat gun. All the paper edges are sewed with a sewing machine.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja design blog today. Have a wonderful September!

With love,

Christmas in August

Hi everyone! I hope you are fine. I am back with some more Christmas inspiration for you today, another coffee filter card using the lovely Home for the Holidays collection.

Again I have tried to captured the brown and blue colours from the papers in my colouring. I use Distress ink, re-inkers and Markers for my colouring. I stamp on Bockingford watercolour paper and uses syntetic brushes size 0 and 00.

The stamps and dies are from Magnolia.

Under you see the simple card that I have put inside the coffee filter to write a Christmas greeting on. I have sewed with my sewing machine on all the paper edges.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

With love,

Merry Christmas

Hello Lenet here today and I bring you a…Christmascard.

I know a lot of you don’t want to think about any thing Christmassy right now but I’m in a Christmas mood all year long.

I’m a member of two facebook groups that have a Chrismascard challenge  , and for that I need to make two Christmas cards a month, I can share them but If I have the time I want to make  4 different ones . Two for each group. You can never have enough Christmascards

The Christmas collections of Maja are just to gorgeous for not using them , so I use them a lot. that means you will see more Christmas cards from me thru out the year.

This one is made with several leftovers from different Christmas collections. I just love to make bleu ones it gives that winter and snow feeling I love and always hope we have at that time.

 

Besides the papers I used spellbinder dies , summerfeelings doily die from studio light and the Tim Holtz mini snow flakes rosette die. I just love rosettes.

I hope you like the card I made for your inspiration hope to see you back next time and don’t forget to come back to see the amazing things the other Maja girls make for you

Hi everyone! Today I want to show you a card that got published in the December issue of Ett Trykk. The challenge was to use the blue and white colour combo. And what wasn’t more perfect than to use these gorgeous Maja-papers from the beautiful collection Joyous Winterdays. And for the sledge and trees I have used sheets from the Monochromes papers in the same collection.

The whole card is made with a Go Kreate die. The circles around the image of cute Tilda is made with Spellbinder dies. The rest of the dies are from Magnolia. Magnolia have so many various dies that fit perfect to make lovely scenes with. I hope you like my card.

As usual I have added several layers to build up the card.

For this card I have also made the flowers myself, with gorgeous Maja-papers and Magnolia dies. The paper is first cut out, then I have sprayed some water on to the flowers, and curled them up. Let them to dry, and then curled them back up again. In the middle I have put some flower stamens from Wild Orchid crafts. I have also added some paint, white Gesso, all over the place.

For the 3D star I have used the paper called Blizzard bs.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

With love,
