Exciting News!! I'm on the Maja Designs Design Team!!

So a little while back I was contacted by Jenny Grotherus the design team coordinator for an amazing paper manufacturer in Sweden, Maja Designs,  to see if I would join their design team. They have gorgeous paper collections designed by an incredibly talented artist, Marie Janson, the designer and founder of Maja Designs.  At the time I had already been telling myself that for 2013 I would not take on as much scrapbooking teams and guest spots as I have in the past years.  So my first response was a kind but reluctant pass.  But I was curious about their paper collections and Jenny said she would send me out one of their collection packs so that I can see the beauty and quality of their papers.  I was delighted when just a few days later I recieved this huge box of their full collections!!  And let me say, I was VERY impressed!  Their beautiful shabby chic designs are right up my ally for the type of scrap papers I like to use and the heavy weight, 2 sided designs are just perfect for the fussy cutting and paper manipulating I like to do when I scrap.  Although my intention was to agree to a guest spot, in the end I couldn't help but give them a big Yes!  I would love to be on the 2013 team!
 
Curious about the look of their papers?  Here is a little sampling of some of their collections, I just love the soft distressing and pretty designs, creating with these papers so far has been a delight!  If you want to see more of their collections you can find them HERE.




Aren't they beautiful?!!  I've already got some projects done with these beautiful collections and am eager to share them with you along with some fun techniques!  But you'll just have to wait a few more days until the new year when I can begin sharing them with you!  So without further ado, here is the creative team for Maja Designs 2013! 
 
 
I was so happy to see all the amazingly talented ladies that I will be working alongside on this team.  Many of them are old friends that I've worked with on other teams and if you are not familiar with their work, I'm sure you'll be dazzeled over the next year as you see their work each month!
 
So I'll share some of my work with this companies gorgeous products in the coming weeks, in the mean time you may want to check out and browse their new website Maja Designs and perhaps click to follow their blog, you won't be disappointed! :)

Now I'm curious about their paper as well. Good luck and I'm looking forward to seeing pretty things you make. Oh, by the way, I've got my class hooked on making blooms out of circles and wrinkling them. We're making a flower field in the middle of winter, hhahahaha! When the holidays end, we'll get started well and good and I'll take pictures pf the projects. My group of kids is 10-11 years old, and have no creativity enhancing factors at home, so I was quite amazed when they picked this up. A big thank you!!!
