Hello Maja Friends,

it’s only October on the calendar, however the time flies so fast and soon the most magic time will come. I mean Christmas time and I guess you know, it’s better to start earlier all the preparations.

So I decided to follow this , and created a set of Christmas cards

I used the past collection – Home for the Holidays, so classy and cozy

My main focus this time were the ornaments that I made using Spellbinders dies.

You can check my video tutorial that I filmed for you

Everything that glitters works great for Christmas projects, I guess it’s a good idea to mix silver and gold together too.

I chose plaid and tiny snowflakes backgrounds for my cards, I like the smooth and mute red and brown colors the paper has in this collection.

Hello Crafty Friends.

The air is chilling outside though it is sunny. And I like to review the pictures taken during the summertime. There are many of them taken at teh beach, si O decided to start making the cover for my mini album.

I have made already many projects with the Life by the Sea collection, but I still love to try it again and again and play with beautiful patterns.

Travel_Book_Album_Cover_life_by_The_Sea_Elena1

I put many paper layers together. It was quite easy to do since there are many papers to try.

I like those strips, stars and the map paper sheets, and there are plenty of colors to choose and to mix for your projects.

Have a wonderful week end and enjoy your papercrafting.

Hello Maja Friends,

for my today’s post I created 2 Layouts. Initially I planned to make only one, but you may know that sometimes when we our creative mind starts thinking it’s difficult to stop it. So I followed it and this is what I’ve reached.

Denim_LO_by_Elena_Olinevich_for_Maja_Design_00

The first one has no mixed media layers. I’ve only put several layers of paper and die cuts together.

Denim_LO_by_Elena_Olinevich_for_Maja_Design_1

I used the sentiment for my Lo, and I think that this little mistake make it too cute for the kid’s project.

Before I made this Layout, I’ve started with other background, I kept all the elements mostly.

Denim_LO_by_Elena_Olinevich_for_Maja_Design_0Signed

I started with the paper, you can check it in my video clip.

and only then I added few paint drops.

I like these quilt patterns, that I made with Spellbinders dies.

and those torn circles look great for the boy layouts, don’t they?

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
