Redesign for the card

Hello friends,

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.

Wedding_Invitation1

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.

Baby Girl Album with the new collection

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.

VintageBabyGirl_sneak 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

VintageBabyGirl_Elenaolinevich1(1)This time I started working with the papers for the girl. Yes, I do like the pink also.

img_9643The collection has several cards for journalling and also fussy cutting.

VintageBabyGirl_Elenaolinevich2(1)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.

Cute Baby Card

Hello Maja Friends.

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.

VintageBabyCard_ElenaOlinevich  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

img_9328So it took me a long time to find the place where it was is needed to be placed, as everything was completed already.

img_9330while there are the pictures, it is not easy to add many of the embellishments, especially when you have more than one image

img_9331But 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.

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.
