Hello Maja Fans, a very good morning to you
It’s Maja here to share a little sea album. Just as you’re reading these words, I’m in the car (hopefully) going North towards the Baltic sea! Although we live in the South of Poland, almost in the Tatra mountains, we love the sea and our best holidays are connected with water And so, after a few year’s break we’re finally going to spend some time by the sea again and I decided to prepare a small album for some of the best shots. And of course I grabbed my favourite marine collection of all time, Life by the Sea:
It’s still very plain and simple, a beta-version I might say as I hope to add some keepsakes we’ll buy/find, and the final embellishing will take place when I put photos in it. But I thought it would be a good idea to share such bare album to give you some idea of how I prepare the background for photos.
I took seven cardstock pages (two pages for each day) and two chipboard covers and all little pieces and scraps of the collection, so that – believe it or not – I cut little pieces off only two “full” sheets, everything else is composed of scraps!
So, I do suggest making yourself a cup of coffee now and then sitting comfortably Are you ready for a ton of photos?
As you can see, I used just papers, some stamps, washi tapes, an edger punch and a few chipboard pieces to embellish the pages. Sometimes a scrap of paper was just a centimetre too short to cover a page, then I’d use a signature strip – I always keep all of them when I cut papers and love to use them – to fill the gap.
Here’s how I used the smallest bits of paper: I made tiny flags…
Maja Design papers: bits and pieces of the Life by the Sea collection.
