Creative Team 2014

Posted by Jenny Grotherus

24 December, 2013 -

The time is approaching to say goodbye to our Creative Team 2013. We’ve had a very fun and creative year and have achieved much together.  We released new Vintage Basics Collections completing all four seasons of the year and we introduced our first Special Addition Collection, Sofiero,  that was a smashing success with much help from the Design Team.   I am very proud of all they have contributed.  We have retained some familiar faces for the 2014 Creative Team and want to offer our special thanks, hugs and well wishes to Romy Veul, Camilla S. Bakke, Ivana Camdzic as they transition out.

 Now it’s time to meet some new and old faces… Here is our 2014 Creative Team. We just know this is going to be a great year.

Introducing the Creative Team 2014


Jenny Grotherus, Sweden

Jenny is what we like to call the “glue” holding the team together and inspiring a team spirit  that is so special.  Her paper crafting style is refined, elegant and perfectly matched for MajaDesign collections.  She has that winning smile and happy nature that comes though in all her work.


Jennifer Snyder, USA

Jennifer Snyder is the chatty one on the team and well suited to be the Facebook Coordinator.   Jennifer remains behind the scenes and fills in when and where ever necessary.   We are so happy to have her on the Team for 2014 in a supporting role.

Andrea-EwenAndrea Ewen, USA

Andrea’s exquisite taste in cardmaking leaves nobody unaffected.  She has a flair for card making unlike anyone else.   We are so thrilled that she has accepted to stay on our team for another term.Camilla-EkmanCamilla Ekman, Sweden

Camilla’s simple, but detailed style is breathtaking.  Her work always feels like a breath of fresh air and her designs are truly fabulous.   We have also been so very blessed to have Camilla help behind the scenes when needed. We know this will be a great year with Camilla on the team.Elena-OlinevichElena Olinevich, Belarus

Elena’s playful style always delights us and leaves us excited to see what she will create next.  What will her imagination come up with next?   It’s sure to dazzle and captivate and we just cannot wait!

  Gabrielle-PollaccoGabrielle Pollacco, Canada

We’ve all been amazed by Gabi’s fantastic work during 2013 and we are so happy to say that she’ll be around for next year, creating her magic.  And what magic it is! Each and every piece a head turner and trend setting.

Heather-JacobHeather Jacob, Australia

When Heather showed up as our guest in August she totally knocked us out.  I do believe we heard gasps from around the world. Then when she agreed to join the team, we all gasped. We are fortunate to have her with us.


Ingrid Gooijer, Netherlands

Ahhhhh Ingrid.  What talent she has. She has a freshness in her work that seems to bring joy to all who gaze upon it.  Clean, fresh, unique and part of the team! We couldn’t be happier.

Maja-NowakMaja Nowak, Poland.

Maja’s playful creativity with vintage shabby chic is a perfect and natural fit for all our collections.  She has such a talent for gorgeous vintage, then flipping styles to make a stunning and strong masculine page.    We celebrate that she is on our 2014 team.  Marilyn-RiveraMarilyn Rivera, Puerto Rico

We’ve all got used to Marilyn’s creative way of integrating her background as a clothes designer into her scrapbooking. Her unique ability to drape papers has given her a style that is all her own.  She is truly a gifted and multi-talented artist.  We cannot wait to see what she creates in 2014.


Nadia Cannizzo, Australia

Nadia graciously accepted a Guest position in December and we knew we had to have her as a permanent member to the team.  Nadia’s flair and special attention to detail is totally captivating.  She has such an amazing ability to use stamps, embossing, inks and paints and easily transitions from girly grunge to delicate, mastering each style along the way.

Nancy-HanttulaNancy Hanttula, USA

We all fell in love with Nancy’s inspiring mixed media style during her guest assignment in February. She was a replacement for Jennifer Snyder, when Jennifer became the Facebook Coordinator in August. She has grown into our Maja family and we are happy that she’ll be around for another term.

Rachelle SigurdsonRachelle Sigurdson, Canada

Rachelle is the master of drama though the use of layers.  She incorporates layers into her work that make us all sit back and stare in awe.  She also loves the hand stitching as the fabulous finishing touch to her pieces.  We are thrilled to have her on the team again this year.

We hope that you will be a special part of MajaDesign in 2014 and look forward to all that the new year will bring.
