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

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.

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.

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.

so stay tuned for more albums from me

Hi there Maja fans! I hope you have had a wonderful May so far! Here the weather is so nice, it has been sunny and warm. So lovely! As you might know, I live in the western part of Norway where it is raining all the time, so a bit sun is much needed:) Ok, I will tell you a bit about my card. I made it for my cousin’s baby, by the beautiful name Bjørk.

Sofiero-K

I have used papers fom the new Sofiero collection, and also added two postmarks with images from the Vintage Baby collection. I have used a postmark stamp on them from Stempelglede with white embossing powder.

The image is from Magnolia, and the text is from Stempelglede. The flowers are from WOC and Kort og Godt.

The chipboards are from Wycinanka.

Hello beautiful Maja Fans,

Today it is my turn again on this lovely blog, I love my Maja Design papers so much that I find them a blessing to work with. Lately I am totally into baby layouts really don’t know why the only thing I can think of that babies are so stinking cute….for this layout I wanted to highlight just one color extra besides black & white which officously is orange. I am not such a fan of that color but it reminds me of a wonderful time with our handsome son Kevin because one of his first words he said besides dad, mom and car was orange {still think that is so funny}…

I really love the black & white sheets in the Sommartider collection I always use them when I need a black or white peice of paper to create with. Before I started creating I firstly picked out the flowers I wanted to use {sadly my last black ones that I have} the orange ones are by 49 and Market and called shimmer & shine, the black ones are by Petaloo and the white ones are by Dusty Attic like all the chipboard is too.

At first I cut out the middle part of the Strandmode bs sheet and stuck the Sommarens bild bs behind it, I also did that with the sunny side sheet from the “Nyhavn collection. Then I distressed the edges of both sheets and machine stitched on the orange sheet. Then I picked out hte picture I wanted to use. I treated my chipboard pieces with gesso and rust paste because it has orange in it to finish my layout I added some sidewalk chalk {white} spray by lindy’s to make it a little shabby chic. I also added some shimmer spray by the same manufactor. The last thing I added are some orange glass beads and prills….
