December is here and it’s time to present our final Season Girl. As promised we have chosen her from the participants of our Mood board challange. Looking through all the contributions I once again was amazed by all the great creativity our scrappy World holds. And I just have to take the chance and say a big THANK YOU to all of you that have participated! It’s been a true pleasure to see your lovely work. I can also tell you that the Mood board challange will be back in January…
Now back to the girl who got the last guest spot of the year. She is a devoted MajaDesign fan and she has actually won the Mood board challange twice. We love her very detailed, shabby romantic style.
Here is what she has to say about herself:
“My name is Amy Voorthuis and I live in one of the smallest countries on earth – The Netherlands, with the love of my life Jeroen. Nine years and some what ago we became parents to the most handsome boy in the world Kevin.
I work as a Optician in a optic store. Done that for about 14 years now and I love what I do, you have to be creative in many ways in this profession.
Scrapbooking became my creative outlet about 10 years ago when my mom took a present home from my aunt Ellen who lives in Florida.
I think you can guess what that was – “a scrapbook”. My aunt still regrets it because she really wants to scrap with me and can’t because of the distance. When I was asked to be a wintergirl for Maja Design I was so excited! I really love to work with these beautiful papers, and I gladly excepted the wonderful offer.
Thanks again for asking me!

“First I pencil draw the shape of this thermometer then I stitched the edges with my sewing machine and distressed it!
I used a stencil on it so it looked like broken ice and stamped randomly on the thermometer for the finishing touch I used a snow writer one my flowers and chipboard!”
“On my card I used the same techniques as on the thermometer!”
“On my layouts I used lots of Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays and embossing powders and lots of layers and always my sewing machine and I love to distress every paper I get my hands on. :-)”
Thank you so much for watching! And a big thanks to Amy for sharing her beautiful art with us!
