Baby Boy Album

Hello dear Friends,

not recently I have discovered a new passion – creating albums with bookbinding and today I have a Baby Boy Album to share with you that I have made using Vintage Summer Basics collection. I am so very happy that Marie created a new Baby collection, but before we haven’t had something special it was quite easy for me to create with any of Basics collection

BabyBoyAlbum_Cover_ElenaOlinevichI started making it almost 2 months ago, and made a photo after each page has been finished, so here they are:

BabyBoyAlbum_ElenaOlinevich1the second one:

BabyAlbumBoy_ElenaOlinevich4and the fifth one:

BabyBoyAlbum5_MainIt’s quite big, about 23,5* 25 cm, so it was not easy to take the shots.
But I wanted to show you all the secret pages inside so I made a video clip for you to watch all the details:

You can find a video here, om Maja YouTube channel:

I hope you have enjoyed watching it.

I used tons of Maja papers from Vintage Summer Basics as well as many of prima Marketing embellishments and dies.

More & More Spring Cards

Hello dear friends.

Today I am sharing more spring cards. I know that I haven’t create many of layouts recently, but I can’t stop creating cards and canvases at the moment. Spring is coming , I guess.

SpringCardInYellow_ElenaOlinevichWell , I need to confess that yellow is not my color. I love it just for the daffodils and I it seems that I create something new only for some spring cards .

So I have made at least 3 for the 6 years of my crafting hobby.

img_8447I used yellow papers, yellow flowers and even added some splatters of yellow spray, so I think it is even too much for me.

But I used the chipboard that I cut into 2 pieces, and the other part I used for my second card, this time the pink one, the color I feel more comfortable for me to work with

PinkSpring_ElenaOlinevich  Well, this is the color I like for something soft and delicate

img_8573I made this simple card. but I needed something simple but feminine. This is my pink therapy as I am going to create some brown projects for the next couple of weeks. The person who knows about it is enjoying to see my last pink one,

A Couple of Spring Cards in Mint and Blue

Hello Crafty Friends,

well the winter is here, the snow keeps everything around white and calm, but I have already started creating for the spring inspiration.

Some cards, since I thought I am tired if creating cards after Christmas, but it is not true, because it is just now I am able to add more flowers than  a month before.

BlueCard_ElenaOlinevichThough I used Vintage Summer Basics Collection, you might have noticed that the colors are still of cold palette, I guess it is the winter’s influence on me.

I combined the paper pad 6*6 with 12*12, and I like the result.

My second card was supposed to be blue too, but I touched it with a mint shades:

MintBlue_Card_ElenaOlinevichsoft and delicate, that is what I love in cards.

Products used:

Vintage Summer Basics – 1943, 1935, 1936; Prima Marketing Embellishments and flowers, lace, 2Crafty Chipboard.

and one more card I want to share too, it was made for my personal project that I am doing on my blog – just for those who want to be ready for the spring with many cards.

FabricFlower_Card_ElenaOlinevichI made it using almost the same products ; flowers and lace, but chose my favorite for its pastel colors – Crea Diem Collection

and since I have started sharing some of my cards made for other assignment, one more card, just wanted to show you different color combinations:

Balerina_Card_ElenaOlinevichThis time it is really a spring card, because I ‘ve used Vintage Spring Basics.

Well, not recently I have found a girl who is selling the old lace from her granny’s attic, so I just can not resist and i put all the lace and crochet trims almost everywhere.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

Hello Maja Friends.

I have been really busy with making cards and gifts before Christmas, but a new baby arrived straight before Christmas Eve, and a friend of mine asked me to make an album for her and her parents.

so here it is a baby Girl album

Beautiful Winter

Hello Maja Friends, we had snow last week but there is none of it today. The rainy weather and still warm as if it is the Fall. Anyway, I am not kind of person who prefers winter because of its cold, but I feel that I need it right now as I am busy with Christmas preparations.

So I created several cards

HousesWinter_ElenaOlinevichIt is my attempt to enjoy the snow. So I used some embellishments to support my wish.

img2For this card I used just scraps of paper and even some negatives, but I still like to use every bit of Maja papers for my creations.

BlueWinter_ElenaOlinevichFor my second card I went further and used even some papers from non – Christmas collection, they are more spring and fresh, but I guess they look crispy frozen here.

img_7388and my last but not the least card, is a bit girly

FashionAddicted_ElenaOlinevichBut is was created for a fashion addicted person who is good in wearing trendy and feminine clothes even when it is freezing outside.

img_7392Again just leftovers and scraps but I guess no one will know about it.

Have a good day and I wish you a Merry and Bright Christmas.

Vintage Winter Mini Album

Hello Maja Friends, today I am sharing a Mini Album I created for the Christmas memories. It can be used as a December Daily as well but I keep it as a present for a special friend of mine.

VintageWinter_Album_ElenaOlinevichI used one of my favourite Winter collections ( so I admit I love all of them) – Vintage Winter. I just love the blue tones of it, it is so traditional for a Russian Winter.

I used a clear album and decorated my cover page with clear ornament ball:

Clear_Ornament_AlbumAnd a first page with a circle photo frame

VintageWinterAlbum1My next pages:

VintageWinterAlbum2I didn’t want to cover the beautiful background papers with many layers, so I kept some of the pages clean and simple – just for adding the photos or some notes.

VintageWinterAlbum3I added some envelopes and folded books to place more photos inside:

Christma Cards – White and Brown

Hello dear Friends.

I am really busy with Christmas Cardmaking. I don’t know the reason but this year I did so many cards that I have never done for all my scrapbooking experience.

and today I am here to share , I would say , black and white, but they are a little bit different.

WhiteCard_Winter_ElenaOlinevichThe first card I made is in white light colors, I used the new collection – A Gift for You, I can not stop to create with it, it is one of my favorite as it has my favourite colors.

WinterBerry_ElenaOlinevichThe second card is made in dark colors and reminds me about chocolate

ChocoholicCard_ElenaOlinevichI used for my background the brown paper from the same collection and cut the snowflake and the branch using the punches and the papers with the script print.

The products I used to create this card:

A Gift for You: Sent With Love, Wrapped in Old Newspaper, Prima Marketing Die Cut , flowers, ribbon trims.

Winter Frame and Winter Album

Hello Elena is here, and today I have some projects to share with you, using new collection – A Gift for You.

Winter_TriFoldFrame_ElenaOlinevich  It is more than beautiful in real life and I have fallen in love with it, absolutely amazing colors so perfect for Winter and Christmas creations.

I have made a Tri_fold Frame on clear acrylic and as it is going to be a present to our friends I didn’t use any of the photo and just kept the central frame save for their own photo.

img_6953I added some transparent sticker corners, so they can easely change any photo they like.

I cut the house dies using some of the background papers as well as the trees and placed them on the frames.

First_Frame_ElenaOlinevich  Also I added some flowers and resin frames, I wanted to keep the wintery and snowy feeling so I added none of bright colors.

img_6961and a third frame:

ThirdFrame_ElenaOlinevichimg_6960Maja Design papers used: A Gift For You:

On Christmas morning, When the snow is falling, Prima Marketing flowers, Dies and Resin Frames, Finnabair Art Ingredients,

And one more project I have to share , it is an album I made using ( again) acrylic base.

It has a very pretty from of Christmas Tree and I used a lot of papers from a Gift For You Collection too.

Album_Snowflake_ElenaOlinevichIt’s size is about 15*30 cm or 6*12 and I placed many hidden envelopes and folded books for the future photos inside.

SnowflakeAlbum_1SnowflakeAlbum_2SnowflakeAlbum_3Final_Snowflake_AlbumEnvelopes2Christmas_treeenvel12I am really busy with preparing Christmas gifts and cards, and really have many of them to share with you. But I will do it next time.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Winter is Close

Hello Maja Fans,

Elena is here today to share with you some winter isnpired projects. Though it is not there, I am working on Christmas gifts, so that is why I am digged into something wintery.

And I couldn’t resist a temptation to show you something made with the new collection A Gift For You

Cozy_Christmas_ElenaOlinevich I really love the color combination Marie has chosen for this collection, as you might have known I prefer soft and pastel colors. So I used grey and white, and they really worked great together.

img_6571  I used some of new Art Ingredients in my card, they are not so sparkling as a glitter is but it adds more depth to the background.

closieSC I created a little video tutorial how I embellished this card. Please, enjoy it:

You can find it here  – on Maja Design YouTube channel

Th image I use was found on Pinterest here

And I also would like to share with you a mini album I made for my Christmas classes that I have already taught.

Christmas_SockAlbum_ElenaOlinevichI won’t show all the images just some of them. I used Vintage Frosted Basics.

Stocking1_ElenaOlinevichSome parts of it as well as some embellishments are acrylic clear, so i saved on my papers and showed 2 sides of it.

Christmas_Stocking_ClearI made many folded books inside for the photos or Christmas Cards

img_6587img_6616There are many vintage images that I used too, they are mostly hidden inside the folded paper books.

img_6600I added some of my favorite lace and ribbon trims as well s flowers and die cuts.

Hope you have liked my creations this month.
