Camilla-S.BakkeNorway-ny

Hello dear Maja-fans!

My name is Camilla, and I live in Norway close to Bergen, with my husband and our charming son. We also have two cute but willful cats. I have been paper crafting since 2008. It all started when I was saying goodbye to a class I had. And I wanted to give them each something special, so I made them a handmade card. I had never thought I would find it so fun and giving. It is special to be able to create something by yourself, but the best feeling is to give away a special card to someone.

I love colouring using distress ink. It is so relaxing and the time flies! I like working with soft pastel colours. And I feel that the beautiful Maja papers fits perfectly to my colouring and the colours I use. I often make detailed cards with multiple layers of papers, doilies and laces. I am also in love with butterflies and old postmarks. I am ,as you might understand, a fan of the romantic shabby chic style. I must also always sew the edges of my cards. If I can’t do that, I don’t feel that they are properly made.

The Maja papers are my absolutely favourite papers, and I love using them on my projects. I am really proud and honored to be on the Maja Design Creative team, along with some super talented crafters!
