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.
Vintage Summer Basics – 1922.1925. 1932, 1911 bs.

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.
Crea Diem Collection – Kärleken övervinner allt , Ord flyger bort , Den oersättliga tiden , Sann vänskap ; Prima Marketing sprays, stencil, stamps, flowers and trinkets, Canvas Stickers.
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?
Products used: Vintage Spring Basics – 7th of May, 7th of April; Wycinanka chipboard, lace and tulle trims.
Hello crafters. Today I have one more album to share with you. It seems that I dig in album making, huge, multilayered, with many extra secret pages and pockets, anyway I enjoy creating them, so I guess that I will be busy all summer long with preserving the memories in the albums.
So I would suggest you to take a cup of coffe or tea and enjoy watching it. If you like you can skip all the photos, and jump in to video clip ( later in this post), but this brand new collection – Baby Vintage deserves to be stared on, as the everything in it is perfect. The texture of the papers, the images , the vintage patterns, so it is always difficult for me to say what collection I love most of all. This time is not an exception, but I do like it most of all
This time I started working with the papers for the girl. Yes, I do like the pink also.
The collection has several cards for journalling and also fussy cutting.
I made several extra pages inside as I wanted to showcase the papers – the backside too, they are too beautiful.
and these floral patterns are so pretty, I even have managed to find the almost similar fabric to make them a match.
This is how I ‘ve made the cover
and for more details , please follow a link to a video clip and enjoy it.

as you might know there is a new collection that has been released long time ago in Vintage range, and this time it is Vintage Baby . I am so grateful to Marie that she created something Baby, as my new passion is to create something baby or for kids. Finally I feel I’ve got the skills and energy to create for my kids their baby albums, so I am looking through the best photos and can’t wait to play with this new collection.
But today I’ve got only the card to share with you. I guess I need to take a rest from creating only the albums, as I am searching for the new ideas.
Well, when I finished making this card it had only the papers and nothing more. and I really loved it ( I do love it now), but I thought that it was not me. so I wanted to add flowers or ribbon trim
So it took me a long time to find the place where it was is needed to be placed, as everything was completed already.
while there are the pictures, it is not easy to add many of the embellishments, especially when you have more than one image
But I need to say that the papers are so cute, that I wanted just adding more and more layers.
Products used: Vintage Baby – New Arrival, Die Cuts, 6*6 paper pad; Prima Marketing flower, crystal, trim.
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
I started making it almost 2 months ago, and made a photo after each page has been finished, so here they are:
the second one:
the third one:
the fourth one:
and the fifth one:
It’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.
