Hello Crafters, it’s Elena here with you today. And I have a Summer Album to share with you today.
Well, new collection – Summer Crush was a worth to wait for it and finally I’ve got tons of inspiration from the papers and the pictures, as a result I created this Light and Full of Air Album. Be ready to watch many photos and a small tutorial too.
I tried really hard to use as many papers as possible, because I love them all and wanted to show all the patterns in once.
I made some flaps and created a surprise card inside. Yes, I decided why not adding the cards into your albums, I think it’s great
here it is:
I also made a very simple tutorial on how I created this card and you can find it here – Youtube.
(and please excuse my pauses, it is my first ever tutorial with a voice)
So I added more extra flaps:
I like those small vintage pictures, and they help to create a retro feeling exactly
and let’s look inside
The second spread
I used some negatives leftover after diecutting
I almost haven’t added dimensional flowers, I stamped and cut them out instead
My third spread is about the cars mostly
though I have added flowers dies and a romantic picture inside
and more flaps and secrets:
and more look inside
What about this guy playing the guitar?
He is hidden under this extra page:
and more guitars:
and finally the last spread:
Hope you have liked my album, as I really enjoyed creating it:
Such a busy summertime for me this year, I can’t wait for August when I can take a breath and relax. I really need some quiet time just for myself and though this year was extremely hard, I still feel the necessity for tenderness. And here is my layout made for one of my class sample, but I really love it to every bit.
I think this layout reflects the original idea of the papers Marie has created for this collection. Vintage Summer Basics is one of my favourite one, though I am in love with each of them, but when I need to create something feminine and soft I always turn to this one.
It has such a romantic vintage look, absolutely perfect for some old photos or those that you want to keep for ages.
Those roses are shabby and fade enough to tell you a lullaby or a beautiful poem
Anyway I added some paint and stamping, it doesn’t look as a mixed media one.
I hope that you are enjoying your summer days and encourage you to create something soft and delicate too.

today I want to share with you a canvas, that I have made for my class sample that I taught last 12 months. I am working right now on some new samples, so I thought that I can post something made for the classes also.
Well, I always tell to my students, that pink is not only for the girls. So I took a picture of my baby boy and worked with grey, coral and pink colors to create this canvas.
My choice was a very stylish Crea Diem collection, really a perfect match for any project. especially when you are adding some paints.
I used dome scraps from the Vintage Summer collection as they have some good expressions too. But the dots and script patterned papers are amazing for creating the layers.
I added some flowers and metal embellishments, great mix for the boy, I guess
I want to thank all the ladies who visited my classes and I hope that you have enjoyed working with absolutely beautiful papers from Maja Design.

well, I am going to travel a lot this summer, so I decided to create something a kind of a travel book that I can take with me to put in some photos , to make the notes and save some memorablia files too. So that is why I created with mini album
Actually, I tried to fill it more with the papers than with the embellishments. I used Nyhavn collection -so perfect for your travelling notes.
I added only chipboard pieces and played a lot with my papers.
I made some envelopes and folds – to keep some tickets or useful information files.
Also I filled it with vellum pockets and strings.
I suggest you to take the ride and enjoy the video clip I made, so that you’ve got a chance to look it through properly.
Hope you have liked it, now it’s your turn to create a travel book for yourself, isn’t it.
Nyhavn collection – Heritage Harbour , Old Townhouses , Historical atmosphere , The sunny side , Strolling along the canal , Veteran ships , Eating out ; Wycinanka chipboard.
yesterday the beautiful wedding post has come live with tons of amazing Wedding inspiration from previous and current Creative Team members.
and today I have a card to share with you. My friends asked me to recreate the card I have previously made. Well, frankly speaking I do not like to make the same things and always try to find for the new ways.
But this time I tried, and I changed some of the embellishments but kept the same papers and here is the result.
and what about you. Have you ever tried to create something you have already done before but with some little changes?
