Goodmorning lovelies,

Spring is in the air and I love it….it’s my favorite time in the year because now summer is really nearby. I really enjoyed the latest mood board from Maja Design did you already enter the challenge? If not I will have some inspiration for you using the beautiful mood board. It has beautiful greens and blues in it and such a romantic vibe….that I really enjoyed creating this layout as I do with all of my Maja Design projects.

I cut the The magnificent Flowerstreet bs sheet in half and placed it on top of the 6th of March bs sheet! Then I added some sprays, stamps and paste on my layout. All the chipboard pieces are by Dusty Attic and I gessod them all, and some of them I embossed and others I added some rust past & mini prills on.

The flowers I used are by several manufacturers. I really loved the text on the mood board that’s why I added it on my work in papers strips that I just printed out on my computer. I won a wonderful prize last month at a challenge site with all 13 Arts products and the hugh glass circle I added on top of the “happiness” disk is one of them.

Goodmorning lovelies,

It’s such a blessing to post on this blog and today I am here to show you two tall cards I created with a bunch of Maja Design collections. I don’t even know how many of them because both cards made out of leftover papers I really enjoy using my scraps every once in a while! I really enjoy the month March not only because it was my birthday {and hubby’s too} yesterday but I really love how spring is sneaking up on us. Did you see the gorgeous spring mood board yesterday on the blog? If not please check the ladies made some pretty amazing work on that mood board wow…..

First card is called “Hello Love” and this card has at least three collections in it like “Enjoying Outdoors”, “Vintage Spring Basics” & can you see the other one? These cards are all made with dies so you can really see the beautiful Maja Design collections at it’s best.

Second card is called “Groovy Summer” I really am longing for Summer since this is my most favorite season of the year but here in The Netherlands that will take some time before we can put our winter coats away sadly. This card is made with just one collection which is one of my all time favorites “Life by the Sea” both cards are the same size about 8,5″ inches tall and 4,5″ inches wide.

Good Morning Maja Friends,

Spring is offcicially here and I keep on creating Spring inspired cards.

Spring Floral Cards Maja DEsign

It’s so very easy when you have beutiful papers and flowers.

Spring Floral Cards Maja DEsign2

This time I decided to use the stip at the paper, that each Maja Design paper sheet has You may think it’s mostly a leftover or apiece to use for your sentiment, however I didn’t cut off it and kept it at the bottom of all my 3 cards.

I’m sure it adds the delicacy to the cards as well as makes the background different.

Spring Floral Cards Maja DEsign2b

I used the same sketch again, but actually I combined different colors and papers.

Spring Floral Cards Maja DEsign3

Vintage Spring Bascics collection has a variety papers to choose from. I like that there are plenty floral backgrounds there.

Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

How nice of you to visit the blog, today I would like to share a 12×12 layout with you using a almost 46 year old picture of my family on moms side. From left to right you see my mom, uncle Evert, my great grandmother Johanna, aunt Ellen, grandpa Arthur and grandma Anna. Oh how much I love those older pictures <3 For this layout I used two collections the pretty “I Wish”& “Vintage Spring Basics”! I took out the purple papers from the last one {to match the flowers I used} and the cream and brown papers from the I Wish collection.

20170224_085035_HDR1

I cut out a V part on top of my layout to use my dusty attic zipper chippie behind the tare then I added a couple of stamps by the very talented Gabrielle Pollacco on my background. Then I used a couple of Lindy’s sprays {purple & brown} to give the papers more shine then I used the script stencil to finish my work. I also stamped around the edges of my layout with a stitch stamp.

The flowers I used have just the amount of shimmer which I like and are from 49 and Market. The chipboard pieces are just inked around the edges and then sprayed with three different colors and inked around the edges again. Then I took out my brush to add some purple mica powder to give it a little shimmer.

Hello, it’s Elena here today.

I’ve got used to create a lot of floral cards late winter, however it’s not easy to stop cards with Maja papers at all.

Spring Card by Elena Olinevich for Maja Design1

Sometimes I wonder what else I can do while creating my cards with Maja. New shapes, new floral composition or something else?

Spring Card by Elena Olinevich for Maja Design2

It ‘s really can be a challenge somehow, however I enjoy making them.

Spring Card by Elena Olinevich for Maja Design3

Recently I’ve started meking several similar cards at once. It saves me the time and allows to experiment with the paper layers, using almost the same sketch.

Spring Card by Elena Olinevich for Maja Design3a

I do create vertical cards rarely. so it’s a good chance to try something new.

I’ve added some lace , made the sticthing and layered the flowers on the top.
