Maja Stokk – our October Guest Designer
Hi, I´m Maja Stokk from Sweden a full time working teacher in mathematics and science subjects, married and mother of five children. I have been into scrapbooking since 2008 and love it! For me scrapbooking is meditation and a perfect way to live out my creativity. I always try to develop myself and love to try new things. I say that I don´t have any paticular scrappy style, but I guess it´s romantic and sometimes a bit grungy. I love flowers, layers and to play with stamps, stencils and paint. I do mostly layouts but also some cards, canvases and altered things

Hi Maja Stokk here today to share two layouts. I´m so honored to be Guest designing this month. I got a huge package filled with yummi 7 Dots stuff and I was so happy to find some Dreamer papers in it. This paperline is my personal all time favourite from 7 Dots. So for my first project I used those papers. I have used some Galatos and Distress Stains on my background paper. Then I glued down the squares and used a stamp from the Illumination collection. I can´t scrap without flowers so I had to add some from my stash.
For my next layout I have used papers from the Illumination collection. Love the soft pastels and chalboard look a like papers. I made a layerd background behind the photo using several tags and layers of paper. I used some light gray papers along the sides to frame and highlight the photo. Also here I used stamping with the Illuminations clear stamps.
