Jennifer Snyder here to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season.  Today I am presenting a holiday home decor that has been made more extraordinary by using Maja Design paper and a few embellishments
 
I’m finishing the decorating and last minute Christmas gifts.  I picked up an inexpensive piece on clearance and flipped it around to use the other side.   Scroll down to see the before and after comparison. 
Here is my process from start to end.
I used the Maja Design, Holiday in the Alps 12×12 paper collection for the background of this piece.  The images and patterns in this paper collection are so peaceful and present a calm winter’s night.
These are the papers used:
Christmas Day
Winter Night
A little more about this piece and how it started.  Below is the image of the original home decor seasonal plaque.  Everything is on clearance this time of year and who doesn’t love a Christmas clearance section in the store!  The great thing about the plaque is that it is very deep and thick to make for a perfect shadow box when turned around to the backside.   These are things I think about when shopping.  It may look like Christmas today, but can this be painted and altered for use as a summer project?   If possible and inexpensive, then in the shopping cart it goes.
With a little glue, my gorgeous Maja design papers, and some other fabulous products,  it gets a total makeover.
Thank you for stopping here and Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday and peaceful 2020.
 

Winter Home Decor Shaker Box

Jennifer Snyder here to share a project I made using the new Holiday in the Alps collection.  This is such a gorgeous collection to see up close, with amazing patterns, rich reds and frosty blues.
I created a home decor decorated box to fill with candy or a small gift.  This box is unique because the lid has a beautiful shaker finishing the top of the box.  The coordinating patterns in the Maja Design collections are always perfect for fabulous layered projects.
Here are the papers used on this decorated box:
Let it Snow ( A and B side of paper)
Snowmen

 The box has been decorated using a combination of chipboard snowflakes from Creative Embellishments, and 3D Buttons from Buttons Galore and More.

I’ve added a vintage shaped snowflake shaker from Creative Embellishments to the top of the box that completes the frosty winter theme of the box.
If you look at the bottom of the image below, you’ll see a strip of paper around the edge of the box lid.  This is one of those wonderful  decorative edges that Maja places on the bottom of all sheets of  paper. One side of the strip has the paper collection name and bar code.  The other side always has a delightful pattern.  I try and save the strips because they are perfect for finishing touches on projects and cards.
Thanks for stopping here.  I wish you a wonderful holiday Christmas season and happy crafting.

Jennifer Snyder here to share a Valentine’s gift set.  The gorgeous raspberry pinks in the Maja Design Summertime collection are perfect for Valentine’s Day.
My gift card set was created with a cool shadowbox die from Spellbinders  and the card was made with a heart die from Spellbinders.
Below is a look at the papers I used for the Shadowbox.
Smell the Roses
In the Garden Die Cuts
Flowers Everywhere (B side)
The beautiful flirty bicycle image is from the die cut sheet in the Summertime collection.
The flowers were custom made using another Spellbinders die and cut from papers from the Summertime collection.  Perfectly coordinated.
Next I made a matching card to accompany the Shadowbox Valentine.  The card was made using the following papers:
Flowers Everywhere
Garden Bouquet (B side) .

 

Thank you for stopping here.  I hope your day is filled with love and joy and crafty delights from Maja Design.

Hello.  Jennifer Snyder here to share a card I made for my sister.  My husband and I adore the ocean and beach.  Each summer, my sister kindly lets us stay at her vacation home in Florida near the ocean.  This is my “thank you” to her for opening her vacation home to us.
 My card features the Summertime collection by Maja Design – especially the die cut sheet.  Look how darling the image is?  

Having fun bs Cute summer dress Cute summer dress bs By the sea - Diecuts

 I embellished the card with some die cuts of my own from Spellbinders and Joy Crafts in a nautical theme.

Because I used the sweet image from the die set, no need to add many other embellishments.  I let the papers do most of my “talking”.
