Hello Maja Friends,

each summer I wait for the chance to see the sea. It’s a great disadvantage that I live in the country with no sea, however I do all my best to spend some time by the sea. That is why I like creating nautical albums so much.

I do love using Maja – Life by the Sea collection, it has the variety of stripes, stars  and other nautical motifs to choose from.

This time I made a cascade mini album and used some of the pictures taken last summer by the Baltic Sea.

I used only paper to create my layers and die cut embellishments

I played with different patterns and skinny size, and even managed to make some fussy cutting

All of those Sealight pictures as well as the Sail boats are perfect addition to the mini.

It was fun to enjoy papercrafting and to revise that past time memories.

I left some pages almost clean and simple, as the background papers are awesome with no extra layers too.

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m u Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the Vintage Summer Basics collection. I chose a photo taken during my trip to Prague of the Memorial to the Victims of Communism. The memorial is the work of Czech sculptor Olbram Zoubek. It’s a truly magnificent memorial. A sad one, though.

First, I primed the background with clear gesso. I mixed together some copper crackle paste with the brown Rust effect paste. I used the mix with a stencil to add a design and I let dry. I didn’t expect the crackle to appear as I mixed the crackle

Hi Everyone,

Its Keren here for the Maja Design blog with a new project.

I created another Thankfulness Book using the Vintage Spring Basics and the Vintage Summer Basics collections.

I kept it monochromatic this time and used several green tones.

I covered a plain notebook from the dollar store with the 11th of March paper from the Vintage Spring Basics Collection and used the back side to cut a small border for the edge using a Martha Stewart Punch. I also used the back side to create some die-cut vines and flowers to embellish around the flowers.

For the doily under the flowers I used the back side of 1904 paper  from the Vintage Summer Basics collection as it was pretty neutral. Then I embellished with some Prima Marketing flowers and vines.

I used the Vintage Summer Basics collection to cover this journal:

and here are the papers I used from the collection:

I'm Keren Tamir a self taught scrapbooker, mixed media artist and designer. Since I was a child, I always loved art. I used to doodle on my notebooks and on anything I could get my hands on. ​ Fourteen years ago I discovered scrapbooking and fell in love with it. One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. Scrapbooking opened a creative door to something that I had longtime forgotten I'd loved. It gave me peace of heart and mind. visit my blog for more inspiration: https://kerentamir.blogspot.ca
