Hello scrappers (and everyone else who has find your way here)..!

Today I will share some changes within our Creative Team with you. There are some sad and some good news..

First we need to say Farewell to two of our Team members – Iris Babao and Ingrid Gooyer

Ingrid – you have been our “Star of Altered” and we really adore your creations! Hard working, talented and so very dedicated. You will be very missed. A huge thanks for all you’ve been sharing, and for your hard work behind it.
Take care. Hope to see you out there..! ♥

Iris – you have been a fresh splash of color to our team, and we thank you for that. You’ve brought a new, colourful touch to the Maja blog. Thanks for this time and for your wonderful work. Take care. And, I’m sure, we will see you out there, in social media. ♥

Now, it’s time to welcome our new Maja Team Member – Silje Kristin Aunan.


Silje is a really talented artist who specializes in altered projects. We are totally in love with her style and her wonderful and daring way to handle Maja papers.

Hello everyone 🙂
My name is Silje Kristin Aunan, I live in the north of Norway, in a town called Bodø. Here I live in a House with 2 girlfriends. I have my own crafting room with a bed 😉 I like to fish, be outside in the forest or on the top of mountains. I love a good book, take photos and I like to bake. But my true passion is Scrapbooking. 😀
I discovered scrapbooking in November 2013 and it changed my life.
It all began with a few Christmas cards and tags, made with Maja paper.
3D projects and special boxes soon became my favorite, I just love creating special new unusual projects. I feel an urge to create things that have never been done before. It makes me excited and time flies by so fast. It is like time does not exist while I am in the zone of creating ♥
From childhood I have always been very creative. I even studied pastry/cakes where I also could use my creativity.
I get inspired by things that surround me, nature, situations, feeling, weather; or ideas just pop up in to my head.
I prefer to create something unique. Pushing my own boundaries. So therefore I challenge myself to make “impossible” paper creations. “Nothing is impossible” is my mantra.
I love to  use many different variations of paper, the more layers the merrier! Many details such as ribbons, charms, bling and lots of paper flowers. I can make projects simple but still detailed. My favorite is large detailed projects, and my style is mainly shabby chic/vintage.
And that is why the Maja Design paper is a favorite. I just love the papers, and what I can do with them, when I create my projects.
I hope I can inspire you all to tray things you never have done before, becuse I love to inspire crafters, and why not do it with lovely Maja Design Paper ♥

A warm welcome to the Maja Family, Silje..!
You can enjoy her first post at the blog on September 6th.

We also want to say Hi! to Gabrielle who has been enjoying her summer break. You are so very welcome back..! ♥
