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.

Hello crafty friends.  Jennifer Snyder here to present a snow globe shaker card celebrating Christmas in July using one of Maja Design’s wonderful Christmas collections, Holiday in the Alps.
Outside, it’s hot enough to melt a snowman in minutes, but inside my craft table is filled with frosty papers and smiling snowmen.  I love it!
Here are the papers used on this snowman snow globe shaker card:
Winter Ephemera – Side A and B
Snowmen – Side B
Snowflakes
 

 

The snow globe shaker is from Creative Embellishments and is filled with shaker mix from Buttons Galore and More.  Every shaker needs fabulous sequin shaker mix and this mix is glittery and shimmery like fresh fallen snow.

Thanks for stopping here today.

Welcome!

I hope our winter, which was actually not a winter at all, is over soon.

Grey, wet and some days it just doesn’t seem to get light at all.

But sometimes, even after frosty nights, you could discover a landscape

enchanted by hoarfrost.

This was my inspiration for my mixed media collage today.

 some close up’s

At the last trade fair we made some mushrooms of egg carton with our children.
They made enthusiastically fly mushrooms, that seemed contagious
and so I was inspired to tried another variant myself.

I used our wonderful winter collection ‘Holiday in the Alps’

‘Let it snow’ ; ‘Deers’ and some suitable monochrome papers.

Many thanks for your visit!

Have  a good time!

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,
