Who is Maya?
Mad for scrapping
Architect in training
What would you like people to know about you, and your family?
I’m Maya and I’m 18 years old. I live in the Netherlands with my parents (Peter and Diane) and my 12 year old brother Haye. I love to be creative and I love to travel and shop and listen to music and .. much more!
What do you do in “real” life, when not designing….
I’m now studying Architecture at the University of Delft.
How did you decide to “land” at the O’s?
Oscraps has always been my digihome (since 2007). I started on Merkeley Designs CT and I’m part of the Site CT. It’s just a dream come true to be an Oscraps designer now.
What was your process for designing kits?
Thinking of a catchy name for a kit, think of a matching theme/colour scheme and go from there. Making a list of what I need to have in the kit and then design. Ooh and I always scrap with the kits while actually designing them, to see if I can scrap with them or to find out what I need.
How do you describe your style?
Oooh, my style.. I don’t really have a particular style. I like it all and that’s what my designs will be about. One kit can be hand drawn, the next vintage, altered, realistic, clean, etc.
Where do you get your inspiration?
Everywhere. Mostly music and other advertisements.
What are your favorite things to design?
At first I really didn’t like making papers, but now I love it!! You can do so many different things to create a paper. I love doodles/hand made elements too.
What types of things do your kits typically include?
The basic things (I personally find) you need to have to create a layout. Like some frames, fasteners, solid papers and often flowers. I love flowers. And of course a whole bunch of other elements, but those are based on the theme of the kit.
What do you think sets your style/designs apart from others?
I’m not a one style designer.. I’d like to make it all. I try to have several unique pieces in every kit I create.
Who are your favorite designers? What do you like about their styles?
My favourite designers are definitely the Oscraps designers, I love them all and I’m really proud to be a part of them. I also LOVE SherrieJD with her altered products and Holliewood Studios.
