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.


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,

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.





Products used:

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.

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.

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 dear friends! Its Evgenia Petzer with you today and I have prepared the nautical inspired treasure box for my son. When on the sea, he alays picks p shells and other bys treasures, so now he can store them in this box.

I have taken some of the Maja papers and covered the box with it, I mainly went with neutral colors this time and then I added the pop up colors for the box decor.


close ups:

Of course, there are real shells on the box:) I also have misted the gause with the Tattered Angels mist.

all the chipboard is from Dusty Attic.

I have used the Life by the Sea collection and also some die cuts from the Vintage Summer collection

Have a lovely sunny day,
