Yes, it’s not easy to create only one card. So I’ve got used to make several at once


I played with the plaid background pattern and then using almost the same papers and the same dies made 3 cards


I like the soft colors this collection has and the summer feeling is definitely feels in them



What I have focused this time on are the flowers white and peach pink

Hello Maja Friends,

I guess some of you are busy with Easter preparations, however I would like to share with you my passion for Shabby cards.

Today I’ve got the cards that I made for some of my classes.


I have already told that the Basics collections are my favorites ones, as they are so versatile and you can use them for any type of project mostly.

and of course, shabby style is something that is quite easy to create with them.


But Vintage Summer Basics is the collection that I come back to over and over again.


All you need is to add flowers , lace and chipboard – and here you’ve got a feminine soft card.


One more card that I made using the same collection but added more warm colors


I really enjoy creating cards with Maja papers and what about you?

Supplies used:

Prima Marketing Flowers and a  Doily Die, Wycinanka Chipboard.

Welcome dear Maja friends. I hope this blog post finds you all well and happy. Today I am here to share a very simple card I created using the ever so versatile Sofiero collection. I have fallen madly and deeply in love with the softness of this paper collection.

2017-04-11 Heartfelt Love 012 (1024x768)

I kept this card very simple, as much as it didn’t feel right …… also did. Crazy I know but I had piles of flowers sitting around the card and adding flowers just distracted from the simple elegance of it.



I have used the 6 x 6 pack perfect for cardmaking. Enjoying the fragrance was used as the background and I layered another strip of it along with Strolling down the path, with a little lace. See simple!

2017-04-11 Heartfelt Love 008 (768x1024)

I used some Dusty Attic Chipboards along with a metal swallow embellishment to help decorate the card. The elegant scroll was dressed with liquid pearls and the cute Cameo Ribbon was coated with Gesso. I then cut an oval shape from the Royal Summer Residence to help it pop a little. I then highlighted them a little more with a little Star Dust Stickles.

I tucked in a little muslin and then added in some sweet tiny little micro beads.

The little swallow I think just completed this little project. It was primed with a little gesso and then I sprinkled over a little colour of Pale Pink Mica Powder. And finally I have topped the embellishment cluster with the word strip “Heartfelt Love”.

Well that is all from me today. I hope I have inspired you to pull out your Maja Papers and create something small and simple, but very very elegant.

Until next time take care my friends and happy scrapping. xxx

Hello Maja Friends, Elena is here today.

I’ve got a couple of cards to share with you today. Something different this time

Summer Collection for Cards by Elena Olinevich for Maja Design_1

I enjoy making cards with in blue tones.  But I have already used so many times Vintage Basics collection, so that I decided to try something new.

Maja Design has so many awesome collections, but I have to cinfess that I have never crafted with the Sommartider collection

It’s quite an old one, however I thought it’s great for summer – beach -vacations ptojects, but now I see it can be used almost for any kind .

I took those papers, that have a beautiful vintage floral background and created a couple of cards, just changing the papers for any other layer.

It’s great to mix them together and I like the result it has brought.

I also tried to find the new flowers composition. Sometimes the sqaure shape makes it challenging for me.

I also changes the center of the cards – the ovel and teh circle, and it makes a difference too.

Wedding or Birthday Cards with the same papers

Hello Crafters,

when talking about cardmaking what paper size you prefer ?

well, as for me it is difficult to say exactly. I guess that each piece of paper is perfect for the card. However I decided to try to make almost the same cards design but mix the paper sizes of the same collection and patterned papers.


I took Vintage Summer Basics collection and picked one of my favorites papers.


I like the mix of pale pink, mauve and peach.

For my second card I used lamost the same embellishments but try to take the same paper from the 6*6 paper pad


I used the same dies, the smaller size of resin frame.


and look – it looks almost the same and absolutely different at the same time.


Can you feel the difference?
