Welcome friends. Jennifer Snyder here to share a shaker card made with Maja Design’s Everyday Life Collection. This is a wonderful collection filled with warm summer/autumn images and colors.
Today I have a shake card in an “Americana” style, which simply means a shabby chic patriotic style featuring the American Flag. While Maja Design is a Swedish company, we LOVE Maja Design in the U.S. and all around the world! My point is to show how a little imagination can transform the papers to meet your particular needs.
Hope, Believe, Cherish!
Here are the individual papers used from the collection: Hugs & Kisses (both A and B sides), Indoors 2, Home Sweet Home (both A and B side), Art Journaling.
Below is a simple image of how easy this was to create.
I made the base card, then cut out the square to be used for the shaker. The tulle netting will be the window for the shaker. Yep, tulle netting is great to use for simple, quick shakers because it has “slack” or allows for space to let shaker mix move freely.
1. Cut a piece of tulle netting big enough to wrap around the paper square.
2. Wrap the tulle around the paper square like a present, then secure the netting on the back with double sided tape – leave one side open for filling.
3. Fill with fun shaker mix ( I used Crystalz from Buttons Galore and More) and make sure all sides are glued/taped down so mix doesn’t spill out.
I finished off the card with a 3D shooting star button from Buttons Galore, and also with some of the journaling words cut from the fabulous Journaling Sheet in the collection. See the image below. Isn’t that a cool sheet for so many uses.
Thanks for stopping here. Happy crafting.
Hello friends. Jennifer Snyder here with a butterfly shaker card featuring Maja Design’s wonderful warm collection, Bohemian Harmony.
This collection has beautiful blues, browns, oranges and cream – great for a variety of occasions for both masculine and feminine projects.
Here are the individual 12×12 papers used: “Rustic Flowers” and “Don’t Worry”.
The shaker has a few other features to mention. The chipboard circle shaker set is from Creative Embellishments and it’s been filled with Crystalz gems from Buttons Galore and More.
The beautiful half pearl embellishments surrounding the circle shaker are also from Buttons Galore and More’s new collections called “Half Pearlz”. Finally the butterfly die cuts are from Spellbinders and make wonderful focal touches.

Hello Maja Design friends. Today I present a card using on of my favorite Maja Design collections – Little Street Cafe. I love the rich warm colors of the collection. They feel joyful.
Take a look at the names of the papers used on the card. The names even make me feel happy and warm:
Sunshine, Hot Drinks, Feeling Good, Something Sweet
The adorable dog stamp is “Let’s Get Cozy” from Spellbinders. It was stamped on to watercolor paper and colored with watercolor pencils. Next, the shaker mix is from Buttons Galore and More. The stamped sentiment is from Stampendous Puppy Frame stamp set.
Thank you for stopping here. Happy Crafting.
Hello Maja Design friend. Jennifer Snyder here with a jolly snowman shaker card crafted using Maja Design’s classic Christmas collection called, ” Holiday In the Alps”. You can see the collection below along with the individual 12 x 12 sheets I used: Winter Night, Let it Snow, Deers.
I really love the warm vintage appeal of the collection. By the smile on the snowman’s face, I think he likes the vintage look as well. Scroll down and I’ll show you how I made the shaker card base.
Shaker Card Base Instructions:
Step 1. “Holiday in the Alps – Let it Snow” is the base of the card. Cut the paper 10in x6 in and crease in the middle at 5 inches. This card is 5in x 6in when folded.
Step 2. The top layer is “Holiday in the Alps – Winter Night” and is slightly smaller than the card base. I die cut a circle in the sheet and inked the edges for definition.
Step 3. Flip the layer over and add double sided tape around the circle. This is going to be your window so you need to make sure there are no gaps in the tape . Cut a piece of tulle (or acrylic) to cover the window. Secure in place.
Step 4. Add shaker mix to the center of the card base and glue the window layer in place securely over the shaker mix. Now you are ready to decorate.
I decorated this shaker card using Spellbinders dies and shaker mix from Buttons Galore and More.
The trees were diecut from”Holiday in the Alps – Deers ” paper.
Happy crafting friends. Thank you for stopping here to visit.
Hello Maja Design friends. Jennifer Snyder here with a Spring/Easter card that is sweet as can be. Since Spring and Easter are hopping into our lives, I thought I’d start my Easter cards to help chase away the cold, dull winter blues and welcome the sunny warmth.
Maja Design’s beautiful “Little Street Cafe”
collection is the perfect paper choice to help celebrate, with it’s warm rose pinks and yellows.
Something Sweet and Tea Please combined with the coordinating Monochrome collection, Shades of Cafe:
The Monochrome collection, Shades of Cafe are 12×12 sheets of solid colored cardstock, perfectly coordinated to match with the papers of the Little Street Cafe collection. The monochromes help take the stress out of trying to match cardstock with Maja Design’s amazing patterned papers.
This happens to be a shaker card made using dies from Spellbinders monthly die clubs and shaker mix from Buttons Galore and More. I love making shakers because I know they bring smiles to those who open the card. Who wouldn’t smile when seeing a shaker card made just for them?
Thank you for sharing your time.
