Retro Summer Album

Hello Crafters, it’s Elena here with you today. And I have a Summer Album to share with you today.

Well, new collection – Summer Crush was a worth to wait for it and finally I’ve got tons of inspiration from the papers and the pictures, as a result I created this  Light and Full of Air Album. Be ready to watch many photos and a small tutorial too.

sneak_peekI tried really hard to use as many papers as possible, because I love them all and wanted to show all the patterns in once.

SummerCrush_Album_First_ElenaOlinevichI made some flaps and created a surprise card inside. Yes, I decided why not adding the cards into your albums, I think it’s great

here it is:

SummerCrush_Album_Card_ElenaOlinevichI also made a very simple tutorial on how I created this card and you can find it here – Youtube.

(and please excuse my pauses, it is my first ever tutorial with a voice)

 

So I added more extra flaps:

Summer_Crush_Spread_1a_ElenaOlinevichI like those small vintage pictures, and they help to create a retro feeling exactly

SummerCrush_Album_ElenaOlinevich3I used some negatives leftover after diecutting

SummerCrush_Album_ElenaOlinevich4I almost haven’t added dimensional flowers, I stamped and cut them out instead

SummerCrushAlbum_ElenaOlinevich5My third spread is about the cars mostly

Baby Boy Album idea

Hello dear friends! Its Evgenia Petzer with you today and I have prepared the idea of refillable baby album in a fabric cover. I bought the regular student folder and covered it up with Tilda fabric (I combined 2 types of fabric for this). And of course from the Baby Vintage collection I used die cuts to decorate the cover.

Baby_boy_album_main_petzer

Its a gift for my friend, so I basically ddnt fill it in, so she can easily do it herself.

I just made couple of the dividers inside, and they look like this in the album (of course, they use Maja papers as well):

Baby_boy_album_main_petzer_dev1

For the first and the last pages of the album I used papers from the Vintage Spring collection, they were perfect addition for the colors. Thats another point why I like the Maja Vintage series. They all combine so well with each other.Baby_boy_album_main_petzer_dev2

and some close ups:

Here you can see better how it looks from the side.

Kristina-Peshko

“Hello! My name is Kristine Peshko. I am very happy to be a guest at your favorite spot in your blog. Maja Design is the paper that inspires me always! When I do something, everything goes by itself. For me it is an endless pleasure of working with paper, which is thought-out to the last detail! Scrapbooking to me is first of all albums. Paper Maja Design is ideal for albums. I am confident that over the years it will become more valuable. The quality of the paper on top. A collection of designs and sheets are always designed and fit together. I really like doing albums like with photos, working with emotions. So without photos while working on a composition and a certain style. Since I love the mix of media I can not help but note that the paper will withstand all tests. Embossing, sprays, pigments, mediums – in every project I add different techniques, I think, because of my work look more unique. Basically, I do work with a light touch of vintage. And also in the style of Shabby Chic, really like men and eco theme. Lately I’ve been using natural materials and inspired by the nature has given us. Many thanks for the invitation! I wish all readers of the blog of inspiration and creative success!”

Vintage Pocket Page Baby Girl Album ~ Plus a Video

Album 1

Hello Maja Design friends! It’s Cathy here on the blog today. It’s been a while since I’ve created a mini album and I thought that now is the perfect time to do so. They do take me a while to create …but in the end the wait is worth it! I have some close friends at work who have new baby girls (who will receive this I’m not sure) so this has given me some inspiration and motivation to create an album. For this mini album I have used papers from the Vintage Baby Collection. I have also followed a tutorial to create this album. It’s a pocket page style album. It’s part of a tutorial series by My Sisters Scrapper which can be found here.

album 2

For the front of my album, I die cut this image from It’s a Girl and used a Sizzix antique frame die to showcase it. I used some Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima blooms as well.

album3

Throughout the album I used all of the ‘girl’ papers, ephemera cards and die cut sheets. I wanted to allow for journaling and personalisation in this album, and the journal cards make that possible.

album 3a

I also used several baby themed die cuts. The onesie section folds out and offers room for photos and also for journaling. I also used stamps to add opportunities for journaling and also to add the dates for special photos and occassions.
album 7a
This style of album had lots of interaction! I also created an envelope using my WR Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board and a sheet from the 6×6 paper pad. Inside I added a little booklet for more photos and journaling.
album 10

This is one of the back page. I used a journalling card and folded in half to create a little book. To create the closure, I stamped onto a leftover piece of patterned paper and adhered it with some foam tape.

I have created a video walkthrough of this album where I show all of the elements of this album.

I hope that you enjoyed this album and that you’ll have a go at creating one!

Baby Girl’s First Year Album

Hello there Maja Design fans! I’m in today to share a baby girl’s first year album I made for my little girl who is arriving in September, using the beautiful new Vintage Baby collection.

Here is the album cover:

And some of the details:


I made an accordion fold for the inside pages, with one side using lots of die cuts from the papers and the other with ample space for photos and journaling. The idea is to keep the whole album as simple as possible so that I have plenty of space for her photos and recording of her milestones.

And here’s the video tutorial:

And that’s all I have for today. Thank you for dropping by!

Maja Design papers used:

Vintage Baby: 6×6 paper pad, Expecting Baby, Cherish, Precious, Bundle of Joy, Die Cuts, Ephemera Cards, Journaling cards Pink

Other supplies: Mediums (13@rts, Shimmerz, Lindy’s Stamp Gang), chipboards (Blue Fern Studios), flowers (Prima Marketing Inc)

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.

first 2 pager family album

Here they are, my two first pages in my family album!
Pff…it was challenging to make them so flat for I usually add lots of embellies and flowers on my projects but I’m happy with the results though!
This first two pager is with a photo of my mom and dad’s wedding photo.


Made these with the Vintage Autumn Basics collection.

Here is the left page:
For both pages I started with the No.XI for the background.
Added some texture with instant filler and a stencil.
The strips and the stamped tags are from No.XI, No.XII, NO.I .
The clocks were cut out from the No.XVI sheet.


All strips and tags were distressed.
Also added some masking tape and lace.
Doodled some white circles with a white pen as a finishing touch.


Close-ups from the papers strips masking tape and texture.

Papers used:

No.I, No.XI, No.XII, No.XVI

Enjoy your day!
