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 dear friends!  Evgenia Petzer with you today. Last time I have showed you the baby mini album and this time time I will show you a box, in which it comes:)

Its just a perfect size and can be used for the baby album itself or for the little things of your cutie.

lots of die cuts, lace and other little embellishments here and there. The balloons that I cut from the maja paper I place on the white yardstick and they become quite firm.

Hello dear friends! Evgenia Petzer with you sharing the large baby boy album (the size is 20 by 25 cm) that I have made. The cover is made with fabric (Tilda), all the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, various dies and all the appears are from MajaDesign

The photos are sample photos of my sons, the new owner of this album will put photos herself, I have die cut the placemats for them. Some of the placemats are from other collections (for most of the album I have used The Baby Vintage collection), but the Maja papers match perfectly even between different collections.

MBlog_cover

It has 10 pages and can contain about 50 photos.str1 str2 str3 str4 str5 str6 str7 str8 str9 str10

Hello Maja Friends. it’s Elena here.

I am very addicted to album making. I consider this is the best way to enjoy the paper and to showcase the beauty of it.

Baby_Boy_Album_Maja_Design11

I have already made many of baby albums, but every time while working on the album for a boy I feel the challenge what kind of embellishments to add, as you can not fill it with the flowers only

Baby_Boy_Album_Maja_Design1

By the way , the flowers can be used , not many , but I guess that the mother will enjoy to have them too.

Baby_Boy_Album_Maja_Design2

But to try find those that remind you the masculine color and play more with the paper.

Baby_Boy_Album_Maja_Design3

A good option is to add various ribbons in blue, teal, yellow.

Baby_Boy_Album_Maja_Design4

also you can mix the Boy Dies – rocket ships, air balloons, cars and others

Baby_Boy_Album_Maja_Design5

I have already told that Maja paper collections are versatile and you can mix the collections for every project you create.

This time I used Vintage Summer Basics as the base for my album, but I also added the paper from Vintage Spring Basics, Vintage Romance  and I mixed even the Christmas papers too.

Baby_Boy_Album_Maja_Design6

Crea Diem is a fabulous collection for any album too.

Baby_Boy_Album_Maja_Design7

So I wanted to give you a heads up that you don’t need to follow the traditional thinking about the name of the collection. You can reveal your imagination with beautiful papers indeed.

Baby_Boy_Album_Maja_Design8

Hope that I have managed to involve you in album making process too.

Baby_Boy_Album_Maja_Design9

so stay tuned for more albums from me
