Hello Maja Friends,

This Spring is totally great, so war, so sunny, so happy to feel its smell.

I love mixing the collections and this time is not an exception, so again I played with Vintage Basics – Summer and Spring

 

Moreover I took the color sprays and the modelling paste I have in my stash and played a bit on my background, it has been a long since I practiced it last time.

And adding the flowers was the most delightful moment.

But paper layers is primary step for me.

 

Have a wonderful week end.

Hello Maja Friends,

It’s Elena here to share with you the baby cards I made for the 1st Year Anniversary

Each time I play with Vintage baby collection I really enjoy the colors and the patterns it has. And since it is not easy to create for the boys with no flowers for me – I like focusing on the paper layers

I used mostly the stars, oval and circle shapes to arrange on my cards, but I mounted all the layers on the crochet lace to soften the image.

I also added a few leaves – the paper and the fabric one and for the accents I used the blue buttons – quite a rare thing that I add to my projects.

Thank you for stopping by

Hello Maja Friends,

it’s snowing and chilling outside, and I feel that I miss Summertime already

So that is why I chose Summertime collection for my post today

I like doing fussy cutting for my cards, so I kept on doing this time too. The roses and the florals are really delicate and so beautiful

I’ve added some flower embellishments too

But made all the cards different

For my second card I made die cutting and used the cardstock from  Monochromes Shades of Denim

They match each other perfectly

I kept the blue color palette as primary color but added the coral shades too

Also I made stamping on the vellum and heat embossed the frames, that I cut out after.

Hello there, its’ Elena here to share with you some ideas for Christmas gifts. Christmas Season is almost here and it’s time for the sweets and chocolate appreciation gifts.

So I thought that I might need more cards and more bags for the chocolate and decided to mix it. I made a card that has the pocket inside where you can put the chocolate bar.

I decorated them with the papers from Christmas Season collection and created the background with the Monochromes Shades of Christmas

I have also added the crochet doilies and some dies

In my place the winter sometimes is quite severe and due to that fact you are always dreaming for warm place, so that is why I ‘ve added so many knitted details

I also made one more card in traditional Christmas colors

Hello Maja Friends. Have you seen the new Christmas collection – Christmas Season? I think it is a good occasion to start Christmas preparations isn’t it?

I have already made a bunch of cards with it.

Well, no doubt I started making my cards with focusing on the beautiful ladies from this collection – really unusual for the Christmas theme and so feminine .

The florals – roses are also something nontraditional but look how it makes the cards to look wintery and festive at the same time

Except for the fussy cutting the roses and the Lady – this time I focused on creating the different background for my cards using almost the same papers I used fr the cards set as well as mixing the leftovers and negatives of the die cuts.

It was quite easy to do and you can check my video tutorial on how I made it here

I used the papers from 12×12 and 6×6 paper pad, as well as added the Monochromes – Shades of Christmas, that match the patterned papers perfectly.

The images I used mostly from the smaller size of the paper, and for the fussy cutting I used the 12×12 paper sheets.

Recently I’ve started to use only paper embellishments for my cards  and it’s quite easy to make with Maja papers – all you need are the scissors and /or die cutting machine

I also made “non-floral Christmas cards” too

I always liked to used blue and white for my Christmas cards and I admit that traditional colors such as green, red are not boring for sure, but I like the cards to be of all colors . So what I love about Maja papers and their collections, especially for Christmas, is that everyone can find something of their own taste.

I’ve only added there a few cut out roses – but it still looks like for Christmas Season
