Hello, it’s Elena here today.

I’ve got used to create a lot of floral cards late winter, however it’s not easy to stop cards with Maja papers at all.

Sometimes I wonder what else I can do while creating my cards with Maja. New shapes, new floral composition or something else?

It ‘s really can be a challenge somehow, however I enjoy making them.

Recently I’ve started meking several similar cards at once. It saves me the time and allows to experiment with the paper layers, using almost the same sketch.

I do create vertical cards rarely. so it’s a good chance to try something new.

Hello Maja Friends.

The Spring is not here though I am impassonately waiting for it. Christmas is over, so there is no need in winter for me. Actually Valentine’s Day is the day that is going to brighten or winter season days.

So I made a couple of I love you cards.

Vintage Spring Basics is quite a wide to choose, however I have noticed that I am using almost the same papers when it cmes to create with it. This color combo of phistachino and the cafe au lait is one of my all time favorite. It seems that I have made a tons of cards with these particular papers, but I still love them.

I added the hearts chipboard pannel and arranges some paper layers.

I used a simple stamped quote – I love directly on the die cut piece of paper, found in my paper scraps and leftovers file.

The same chipboard I used for my second card. But this time I used absolutely different colors for the card.

The idea for these cards was to use a llong ribbon with a bow. It looks more attractive when it doesn’t stand out.

But these cards are not usual , they are more like an embellished envelope to put a gift cretificate or money.

I used almost teh same sketch but different papers from Antligen collection.

I made a lot of die cutting using elegant frames , I guess they are perfect for any kind of wedding or anniversary card type.

Some of them are almost white , the color that is most favorite for the weddings

But one card goes out of a normal range, it is more bright.

However it is such a pleasure to use Christmas papers and to create the layers.

I’ve added some die cuts and a few jewels.

For my second card I used the cut out image and the crochet doily as an accent.

I also added the berries insted of using the snowflakes. I guess it is a fine option.

I wish I could spend all 3 months in a wooden house in the Forest, however I live in a busy city.

So my mini album is all about my small wishes and I enjoyed creating it.

I cut out some of the images, added crochet and fabric trims to make it look more cozy and soft.

I also added a rotating element, when there is some intercative things in my albums.

The paper sheet with the cards is perfect for filling your album with the images.

The snowmen are what the kids like most of all in my mini.
