Summer Cards

Hello Maja Friends, I’ve got a couple of summer cards made recently.

Though I have used Vintage Spring Basics , they have a summer feeling.

EcoCards_ElenaOlinevich_MainI used almost the same products but turned them the other side

EcoCard1_ElenaOlinevichI added some of my favourite embellishments – flowers , dies, lace and ribbons

EcoCard2_ElenaOLinevichThey are quite simple but so perfect for sending the greeting from a country house.

img_0503Have a nice summer week end.

Products used:

Vintage Spring Basics – 7th of May; Prima Marketing flowers, lace, trims, Spellbinders and Tattered Lace Dies.

Tenderness

Hello there, Elena is here with you today.

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.

AnnouncementI 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.

CloseIt has such a romantic vintage look, absolutely perfect for some old photos or those that you want to keep for ages.

close2Those roses are shabby and fade enough to tell you a lullaby or a beautiful poem

IMG_2296Anyway I added some paint and stamping, it doesn’t look as a mixed media one.

IMG_2305I hope that you are enjoying your summer days and encourage you to create something soft and delicate too.

Products used:

Vintage Summer Basics – 1922.1925. 1932, 1911 bs.

Pink – not only for the Girls

Hello Maja Friends,

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.

CanvasBoyWell, 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.

IMG_2834I 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.

IMG_2835I added some flowers and metal embellishments, great mix for the boy, I guess

IMG_2837I 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.

Products used:

Crea Diem Collection – Kärleken övervinner allt , Ord flyger bort , Den oersättliga tiden , Sann vänskap ; Prima Marketing sprays, stencil, stamps, flowers and trinkets, Canvas Stickers.

You Are – Layout

Hello Maja Fans. Elena is here with you today and I have  a Layout to share with you. I found some funny photos of my little boy and it seems that the Layout turned to be a bit serious one.

YouAre_ElenaOlinevich_MajaDesignLOI tried to start working with this awesome wooden background from Nyhavn collection. Absolutely great for some texture on the background.

However I used some floral patterned papers to create those heart dies as well as crown papers for some layers.

Nyhavn_ElenaOlinevich_closeI added some flowers, well I guess it doesn’t look girly. What do you think?

img_0319Some more cute heart shapes

plane2_ElenaOlinevichLoI also used plane chipboard as an embellishment and colored a bit the background.

Hope you have liked my Layout.

Products used – Nyhavn collection – Old Townhouses, Romantic Lunch, King’s Square, Sitting at the dock; Prima Marketing flowers and Color Blooms, Wycinanka chipboard.

NyhavnMiniAlbum_MainActually, I tried to fill it more with the papers than with the embellishments. I used Nyhavn collection -so perfect for your travelling notes.

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.

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.
