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

Hello Maja Friends,

Today I’ve got a big Baby girl album to share with you.

It has taken me a lot of crafty days to work on it, but I like how it came out at the end

I enjoyed mixing the collections for the pages and mostly worked with the papers from the Basics collection – Vintage Summer and Vintage Spring, and used the basic background and the floral patterns

Besides the flower and die cut embellishments, I did some watercolor drawings to this shabby pages

The album is really large as I used the  full size of 12×12 pages

A few pages I have already shared on the blog, however now I put all of them in one album and made a book binding too.

So though the pages were made for a newborn girl I didn’t add any baby related embellishments, except for some Princess theme

Fabric and lace my favorite add ons to the album

So let’s check the other pages too:

The swans and ballerina theme – this is what I have focused on too.

Some close ups for the watercolors

Hello Maja Fans,

today I’ve a got a page to share that I made as a part of big Baby Album I am working on for my friend.

I love creating Baby projects and each time I challenge myself with using non-baby papers, in this case I mixed the papers from mostly Vintage Spring Basics  collection

I kept on building the layers as one of my favorite technique and added the resin angel as a focal point.

I also created the heart embellishment using the distressed paper layers and sew them in the middle

I made some extra flaps to fill in with the photos later and used the silhouette from die cutting.

Watercoloring is what I am keen on at the moment, so I added some of them to the background and to the circle of the clock.

Stay tuned for more pages from my big Baby Album for my freind.

Hello Maja Friends,

August – my favorite Summer month, though it is the last before the dull and rainy days come. However I like it more than any month.
So that is why I enjoy looking through the pictures taken this summer and to create something that is associated with this particular month.

I combined several Summer collections for my Layout – Summertime, Summer Crush and Life in the Country.

I tried to keep the red and greens on my layout, using the paper layers, and added some embellishments of yellow and orange.

I also stretched the colors from the photo – soft blue and pumpkin and played with the acrylic paints .

I added some fussy cutting, though I mixed the greens and reds from almost the same patterned papers.

So it’s time to enjoy each and every day this Summer, hope you will follow my advice.
