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.

Christmas Cards

Hello there, Maja Fans!

It’s Maja here sharing two Christmas cards – as it’s the last moment to send them out :) I made quite a few this year, and of course I wouldn’t miss the chance to make these two using our Christmas release of this year, A Gift For You:

mdsil0For one of the cards, I used a vintage image of the Holy Family and placed it in the centre on the background of layered papers, tied a piece of vintage ribbon and tiny bells that jingle delicately with each move :)

mdsil1I die-cut poinsettias and mistletoe twigs for the flower cluster on my card:

mdsil2For the other card, I used the postcard image I cut out of the die cut sheet – I jus love placing mini postcards on cards! :) I added some chpiboard snowflakes that I covered with glitter and imitated snow caps with liquid pearls:

mdsil3Then I die-cut some poinsettias again, coloured them with mist and placed the button with the Nativity scene on a large snowflake:

mdsil4What do you think? :)

Supplies:

Maja Design papers: A Gift For You small pad, die cut sheet; Other: vintage image: LemonCraft; button: scrap.com.pl; dies: Magnolia; chipboard pieces: Scrapiniec, punch: Martha Stewart; stamp: Lemonade; ribbons: from my stash.

I hope both you and the addressees would like the cards :) See you!

set of cards

I just love to sent cards to family and friends. I was almost running out so I decided to make some more. You can never have enough cards he? :)

Made these with the *A Gift for you* collection.


I used the *sent with love* sheet for the background.
Cut some strips of the *hope to see you soon* sheet.
Also added some bits of masking tape and some lace.


Added some modeling paste on the background using a template.
Some paint splatters for an extra color touch.
Made the circles with a white pen.


A lovely cluster of Scrapberry’s flowers and resins and some gauze,
together with some ribbon flowers and twigs from 13 Arts.


Added some flat turquoise pearls for an extra touch.

And here is my second card:
The text paper is from the *hope to see you soon* sheet.
Some punched flowers are also from this sheet, added with a brad.


The resins and the white/turquoise flowers are from Scrapberry’s


Some turquoise stitching.


Papers used:
* hope to see you soon
* sent with love

Enjoy your day!

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.

Prettiest Paper Flowers

Greetings Maja friends! Andrea here with you today to show you how you can make some beautiful coordinating paper flowers to go with all of your Maja papers! I pulled out some “A Gift For You” designs and cut out some different sized die cuts of a Posy die to come up with this: PrettiestPaperFlowersM1204I simply cut out 2 of each size, curled up the edges with my fingers and staggered each design as I glued them together. I also added Platinum Stickle accents to all the tips of the petals. I did add a pink pearl center to draw the eye. I mounted them atop a grapevine die from Heartfelt Creations. The sentiment is courtesy of Verve stamps and as a last minute decision, I added the Shimmer sequins. Thanks for stopping by today, hope you enjoy the rest of your day! Andrea-sign
