A very warm welcome to a sunny Wednesday. This year we have chosen a little different angle of our Guest Team. We are now introducing our Seasonal Girls. Each and one of them represent the current season and are creating projects with the Basics line that matches it.
Do you want to be the Winter Girl and create projects for us with Vintage Frost Basics? I will pick our Winter Girl from our Mood Board contributions. So if you want to be our guest, work our Mood Boards the very best you can and maybe YOU will be given the honour.
But first. Let’s see who our very first Spring Girl is…
Larissa Albernaz, Brazil
For those of you who don’t know Larissa, here’s what she has to say about herself…
My name is Larissa Albernaz and I´m from São Paulo, Brazil. I´ve been married to my sweet husband Flávio for 13 years and we have an adorable daughter Isabela.
As a paper crafter, I have been scrapbooking for eight years. Along these years, scrapbooking has provided me a great sort of artistic possibilities and a lot of fun! In fact, I love scrapbooking because it provides me to express myself in style, mixing paper, embellishments, colors, memories and a message.
While scrapbooking I pursue something that has sense to me, which inspires me and that can be different, interesting, cute, creative, colorful and fun!
I adore papers and creating page layouts or 3 dimensional pieces!. One of my life’s little pleasures is to cut, tear and distress papers, creating anything that translates the story I want to tell.
My style is eclectic, crafty. I love adding a lot of layers to my collages, including some paints or inks and I pay great attention to the details.

We are so honoured that Larissa wanted to join us this spring. She has created three gorgeous projects for us. Here’s what she has to say about them…
Hello Maja Design fans!
Of course, as the Vintage Spring Basics collection has a soft palette and has Spring as theme, I thought this would be the perfect time to include a beautiful bouquet underneath my garden sink embellishment along with a few chipboards, laces, cristals, blings and pearls.
Now let´s take a look at the card I created.
This handmade squared card uses a yellow cardstock (6¨X 12 inches) as a base. I scored it and folded at 6 inches. I have adhered one piece of paper measuring 4 1/2 X 4 inches that I cut from the backside of the April 1st patterned paper to it. After that, I have included a few more stripes from a variety of Vintage Spring Basics papers to build my layers and have arranged a few die cuts and fussy cut motifs along with a few resins, flowers and a wooden embellishment.
Finally, my out of the page project is a mini album. I have used a gorgeous arbor wooden cover and the lovely Vintage Spring Basics line to put this album together.
Spring days bring us those adorable moments when we can go outdoors and take a walk in a lovely garden feeling the soft breeze and the scent of flowers.
What can be more delightful than spending some time siting in a park bench underneath an arbor? Maybe just scrapping the gorgeous photos taken to preserve these moments!!!
Thank you so much Maja Design for the incredible opportunity to design with such amazing products! I couldn´t be more honored and happy.
