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.

Hello Friends.  Jennifer Snyder here sharing a virtual cup of coffee with my Maja Design friends, and chatting about beautiful paper collections, shaker cards, and crafty fun.

That’s what this post is all about – how wonderful lovely cheery papers make us feel.  Maja Design’s  ‘Little Street Cafe” collection is certainly top on my list of gorgeous collections with it’s warn tones of pink and golden yellow.

 

If you are not familiar with Maja Design’s monochrome  companion collections, here’s a little information that will help.  They are solid color sheets perfectly matched to accent the patterned papers; great for backgrounds, borders, die cutting and blending your paper-craft passion.
In addition to the Monochrome collection, Shades of Cafe, I used the following papers for my card:  Sunshine and the Die Cut sheet.
The die cut selected says,

“Happiness is a cup of coffee shared with a friend.”

Nothing is better than sharing a real cup of coffee with a friend,  but I came up with the “next best thing” which is the shaker cup of coffee.  This is a fun interactive shaker card that will put a smile on that friend’s face.
The chipboard shaker cup of coffee is from Creative Embellishments, and the fun shaker mix is from Buttons Galore and More.  It’s a fun combination of sequins and beads bringing joy to me coffee cup.
  Thank you for stopping here today.  Happy crafting.

Christmas Slider Shaker Card by Lenet Mos

Hello sweet maja fans,

Lenet here and today I bring you this Christmas slider shakercard.

If you pull the bleu tap you can see the shaker part , with Santa in his sleigh on his way to deliver the presents.

I had this photo sleeve fuse tool from Becky Higgins in my toll drawer for awhile now and never used it, so I thought now is the perfect time to do something with it and so I made the shakerpocket using it.

Never thought it would be so fun and easy, I’m sure I will be using it more often now.

Here you have a closeup of the shakerpart.

For this card I used a combination of the 15×15 set and the 12by12 from the newest Holiday in the Alps collection.

For the snowflake behind the shaker I used the Snow sheet from the monochromes -Shades of the Alps.

I think it’s such a splendid idea to make the matching monochromes, now you have always the right color cardstock to go with your papers.

The Merry Christmas sentiment is from Scrapiniec.

Thank you very much for visiting the blog. I hope you like what I made for you.

Make sure you come back to see what the other maja girls have made for you.
