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.

I love the rich warm colors of this vintage collection.  It’s truly looks like pages from Christmas past.
I used some chipboard embellishments from Creative Embellishments that have been simply painted.

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?

 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”.  

 

 

Thanks so much for stopping here to visit.   You can use the helpful Store Finder link to shop for your Maja Design collections.  The link can be found here.

 

Mini-Wedding Album

Hello. Jennifer Snyder posting today to show off the gorgeous Vintage Romance collection.  This is a mini-album wedding card that I created with the absolutely fabulous Maja Design Vintage Romance collection in conjunction with some dies and stamps from JustRite Papercrafts.   
 
Birth of a Mini Album
Mini-albums are really not something I enjoy – and truthfully this project didn’t start out as a mini.  It had its humble beginnings as a card. 
 
 I pulled out my Maja Design papers and tried to figure out which sheet I’d use for a card – really tough choice – impossible almost, since the Maja Design Vintage Romance collection has too many gorgeous papers.   I tried die cutting a few of the sheets to decide which ones I liked best for my card.   It got crazy at my house – more indecision – more die cuts – more beauty – more confusion.   Finally I looked at the beautiful elegant pile of die cuts on my desk and realized I didn’t need to decide.  A mini-album was born. 
This is the front of my card.  As you can see, I punched a hole in all the pages and ran a binder ring through them.  Easy.  ( Just make your life easy and punch all the holes at one time in a stack so they all match up and are perfect).    

Page 2 – the inside page is a graphic from the sheet of Ephemera Cards from the collection.
Isn’t this sheet of Ephemera Cards just divine?  
  Page three and four were sort of made at the same time.   I cut the oval from one sheet of Vintage Romance, then added lace to the back of the negative space.    The actual die cut oval was then used on page four as the focal point.  

 

Thanks so much for stopping.

Maja Design  is Sponsoring CSI – Colors, Stories, Inspiration
 
Maja Design is very excited to be the newest sponsor for CSI – Colors, Stories, Inspiration.
What does that mean?  Simple – that means YOU have a chance to win a prize from Maja Design each month when you play along at CSI – Colors, Stories, Inspiration.
What is CSI – Colors, Stories, Inspiration?   CSI is a scrapbooking challenge that inspires you to try new colors schemes and to tell your stories. The Case Files provide inspiration that will get you thinking about scrapbooking in a whole new way – AND get you thinking of Maja Design in a whole new way as you try and solve the case and the challenge using all the Maja Design collections.
A new Case File opens for investigation the first, second, and fourth Friday evenings of each month at 6:00 p.m. EST. Come join the Maja Creative Team, the CSI Design Team and CSI members in a live chat every reveal night!

Please note that to win a prize, you need to follow the challenge guidelines and upload by the due date published.
Let’s see how Creative Team Member, Jennifer Snyder, solved Case File 190
Look Who is Hiding in the Woods?  It’s Escape Kitty 
Jennifer’s cat, Escape Kitty, is her lovely assistant today to solve the case.
First – Jennifer chose Vintage Summer Basics collection to help with the color palette.   She used Vintage Summer Basics sheet 1903 and 1935 ( sides “A” and “B”) as her backgrounds

Next Jennifer and her kitty chose 3 elements from the evidence list to solve the case;

  • she added leaves
  • scallops in the doily dies
  • wood with the piece of birch bark she added
On to the testimony section of the challenge.   Jennifer’s inspirational word is  “companion”.   Her journaling is hidden using a journal tag she created as see below.   The tag read’s ” My Sweet Kitty Companion- Your favorite thing to do it to run out of the house and hide in the bushes pretending to be a “big game” hunter.  Sneaky litte Kitty. “
Here are some additional close ups.  This photo really shows the dimension added by using a pierce of birch wood bark.  It has been adhered to the page by gluing a piece of cardboard to the back of the bark.

I think you will agree…Maja Design + CSI = Great fun and the Perfect Pair!

Don’t forget to upload your artwork to our Facebook page as well so the entire Maja Family around the world can see how you solved the case and can admire your art.
