Hello sweet Maja Fans,

Lenet here and today I bring you this Valentine card,

I used papers of the Christmas Season collection for this card  just to show you that the Christmas collections are not just for Christmas projects and Christmas season .

As you see  you can use them very well for other projects like a Valentine card.

 

As center piece I used a chipboard heart that I decorated with red polkadot  back side of  the Holly Jolly paper , distressed the edges and put a heart shaped lock on it.

I made a dangle with the key to the heart and attached it to the heart .

The flowers are from Prima Marketing and wild orchid crafts.

For the Card itself I used the back sides of : Deck the halls , Merry Night and Gift Shopping.

I’m so happy the Mood board challenges are back again! I always think the are a big inspiration , and it gave me the inspiration to make this card.

Did you take a look at this months  Moodboard? There is still time to get isnpired and join the challenge, first prize is a collection of your choice!

I think that is a very good reason to enter don’t you? So come on and give it a try! can’t wait to see what you create.!

 

Box Full of Hearts

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

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 🙂 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 🙂

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!

Hi everyone! Here I am back with a winter card for you, using the lovely papers from the latest collection called Chrismas Season. I have also used some of the Monochrome papers.

There are a few, but so beautiful blue papers in this collection.  I love using them!

The shape of the card is made with a GoKreate die. But many of the small dies are from Magnolia. Recently I bought myself a new toy, called Sizzix Sidekick. It is a small version of a Big shot. It is so handy to cut out all the small dies with it.

Both image, papers and flowers go in blue and white shades. And I have added several layers. The image from Magnolia is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers.

Aren’t these tassels the cutest?!

Here comes a list over the papers used:

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja blog today!

With love

 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 :
 Holiday
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 – lovely paper – they 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.

A little more Christmas

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!!
