Mixing the Collections

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.


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


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


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


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


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


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.


Crea Diem is a fabulous collection for any album too.


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.


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


so stay tuned for more albums from me

  • Very very beautiful album. You´ve managed to make a wonderful piece of art even it´s for a boy. I have the same struggles myself, when I make anything for a boy. I actually made a card for a boys confirmation yesterday and had a really hard time with the decorations here too, as a young teen boy definitely isn´t into flowers at all ha ha ha, but for a baby it can be fine.
    You´ve done an awesome job here, it´s really gorgeous and perfect for a boy. Stunning work, well done.

  • Oh my gosh. This is a beautiful album. Love the layers and embellishments. Thanks for the inspiration.
