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

Hello Maja Fans, last month of summer is officially here, one of my favorite month of the year.
This summer I made a lot of wedding projects and today I want to share an Anniversary Wedding Album I ‘ve made recently
Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance

I made quite an easy and simple mini album , it’s size is A4 and as usual  I made the fabric cover for it with stitching

Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance_a

When you want to keep your mini simple all you need to do is to grab beautiful papers, a few flowers and several elegant dies

Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance1

I followed all the instructions I ‘ve mentioned above and played only with a simple color palette – pale blue, gold, beige brown and some mauve shades.

Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance2

It was quite easy to do, as the paper patterns are really amazing from the Vintage Romance collection

Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance3

I wanted my mini to be classic and elegant.

Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance3a

So I didn’t want to overwhelm it with many of the embellishments or even paper layers

Wedding_Album_Vintage_Romance4

Modest and shabby

Some fussy cutting was made to add the embellishments instead of using the flowers

Hello Maja Friends.

I’ve got a trio of shabby cards I made from the Sofiero collection. I know I made so many projects recently but I still can not stop playing with it.

Anniversary_Shabby_Card_Maja_Design_By_Elena_Olinevich4

This time I decided to try to use the pictures of beautiful ladies that go on a separate Cards sheet.

Moreover I haven’t made something shabby for a while, so I took some of my fav lace and doily lace so I added them to my cards alongside with stitching on them.

I like using any fabric on my cards, and white lace and crochet work really great for shabby style.

I also added the flowers. torn layers

The only thing I did different – I used alternatively various flowers for all the cards

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.

Nautical_Cascade_Sea_Mini_Album_CoverSneak

I do love using Maja – Life by the Sea collection, it has the variety of stripes, stars  and other nautical motifs to choose from.

Nautical_Cascade_Sea_Mini_Album_Maja_Design

This time I made a cascade mini album and used some of the pictures taken last summer by the Baltic Sea.

Nautical_Cascade_Sea_Mini_Album_1

I used only paper to create my layers and die cut embellishments

Nautical_Cascade_Sea_Mini_Album_2

I played with different patterns and skinny size, and even managed to make some fussy cutting

Nautical_Cascade_Sea_Mini_Album_4

All of those Sealight pictures as well as the Sail boats are perfect addition to the mini.

Nautical_Cascade_Sea_Mini_Album_3

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.

Wedding Season

Wedding Season – this is one more feature for the summer.

Normally it means more wedding cards I create during this period. And if someone asks me to make a card for a wedding, they want something that can be more than a congratulations card. So creating a envelope for a gift card or money is an option.

Wedding_Skinny_Envelopes_Cards_Maja_Design_1

I guess that Sofiero collection along with Monochromes is perfect combo.

Wedding_Skinny_Envelopes_Cards_Maja_Design_2

These soft shabby colors can bring a delicate feeling

Wedding_Skinny_Envelopes_Cards_Maja_Design_3

I am keeping doing several cards at once, using the same elements and just mixing the colors

Wedding_Skinny_Envelopes_Cards_Maja_Design_4

What I tried new  – is taking the flowers from different packs, no matter how they suit, but leading them in a cheerful composition. Didn’t want to keep the white boring dominance.

Wedding_Skinny_Envelopes_Cards_Maja_Design_5

It was really easy to do, as the candy pallet of Sofiero collection brings the choice for a variety.

Wedding_Skinny_Envelopes_Cards_Maja_Design_6

And I have to admit that fabric tulle and organza flowers work really great there.

Wedding_Skinny_Envelopes_Cards_Maja_Design_7

as well as the classic frame dies

Wedding_Skinny_Envelopes_Cards_Maja_Design_8

Some finishing touches of pearls and rhinestones, and you are finished with a trio of nice cards.
