Hello everyone!

Today a new inspiration for Maja Design. Two pages for a new minialbum with my favourite theme Summer by the Sea. We have a very hot and especially dry summer here and every thought of a cool fresh sea breeze is more than welcome.

”You can shake the sand from your shoes,

 but it will never leave your soul”

I used a beautiful neutral sheet ‘Wind in my hair’ from the ‘Summertime’ collection as underground paper. The tags from this collection

 were a wonderful addition and very practical to attach my flip flop images.

some details

 I have added some cut out elements from the ‘Life by the sea’ paper collection

 and some wooden shape mini elements from Calico Craft Parts

an amazing little parasol and a die cut flower as sun
a background stamp with an old Kogge
Thanks for your visit!
I wish you a wonderful summertime!

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 Maja Friends,

I’ve got a short vacation , and we spent a few days by the sea. I am so happy I had a chance to watch it and to breathe it.

So I decided to make a layout using the just taken shots, moreover I made a step by step tutorial.

Nautical Moments, by Elena Olinevich, Maja Design, Main

I chose the papers from the new collection Summertime. Before that I tried only those with the strawberries and roses, time for strawberries left, so it’s time to try something nautical.

You can not believe me, but I am so in love with everything nautical – all those tarts, anchors, sailboats, and this time the images of the kids let me enjoy the process of papercrafting.

Nautical2, Moments, by Elena Olinevich, Maja Design

I added some flowers and…

made some coloring, you can check it in my video.

However, I don’t know how, but while filming I deleted some clips, so I hope you forgive me that, I only missed the process of priming the background, misting it and adding the texture with the modeling paste and the stencil.

However, I ‘ve prepered some fun tips for you, so please enjoy it.

Hello Sweeties,

As promise here is the inside of the By the Sea album.

In fact I mixed the blue and beige papers from two collections : Summertime and Vintage Baby.

I added several pieces of paper to each page making sure that there was always a reminder on the main paper to the other page. It helps to add some harmony to the project.

To add some interest to each page I added some bits of doily, a few flowers, some glass beads as well as micro beads.

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a mini-album featuring the Summertime collection. First I want to share with you the cover.

Album Cover by Pascale B.

I started to stamp randomly the fabric with a black archival ink to add some texture.

I fuzzy cut the tags from the By the sea – diecuts sheet. I also cut different papers and inked the edges with a brown Distress Ink.

I assembled the papers together and added a thread to the tags. I also added a piece of doily and flowers.
