Dear Maja fans,

It’s with sadness in our hearts we need to tell you that our talented and beloved Gabrielle must leave the team. She has been with us for several years, and we are so proud and thankful for that precious time.


Gabi’s talent is endless.  She makes detailed art look effortless and we thank her for transforming Maja Design papers into masterpieces.  She has captivated our hearts with her shabby chic style, with her head turning altered art, with her canvases and her unbelievable cards.
A huge THANKS for everything Gabi..! ♥
We’ll meet again. A million hugs to you.






The one who will be taking Gabrielle’s place is nobody less than Camilla Stoen Bakke, from Norway.


Camilla has been on the team once before and we are so proud to have her back..! We really adore her romantic, vintage style and are totally amazed at how she transform Maja papers into the most beautiful cards you’ll ever seen..!

You can visit her blog here – http://cstoen.blogspot.se/
She will be doing her first blogpost April 6th – don’t miss that..!

A huge warm welcome to you, Camilla..! ♥
