Designer Spotlight with Paige Evans: Maria Jesus


I saw Maria’s altered globes on instagram and immediately fell in love with her whimsical style! I am delighted to spotlight her here today on the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo blog!

Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got started crafting: My name is Maria Jesus, I am from Ceuta Spain, I am 34 years old, and I’m married and the mother of two beautiful girls. I have always “played” with scraps and photos, making albums, and that was called scrapbooking! In 2008 I started with professional materials and since then I’ve been hooked.

Favorite thing to create: I like it for two reasons, the first is because yes, materials are a great source of inspiration and I love creating and the second is because I want to leave a family trace, I want my girls to have a great memory of the days that we are living and remember that anecdote or that place where we were, what they said when they were small or the first time they lost a tooth. In short, it is, I could say, a way of life, because when you scrap… you see it through the lens of your camera and take everything you note, hahaha.

5 fun facts about me:
1. I like to eat… I can not help it!
2. Because of number 1, I go to the gym (hahaha).
3. I’m also learning how to crochet.
4. I love winter, much more than summer.
5. And of course… I cannot live without the scrapping!


For my exclusive project I have made a mini album mixing several collections and it is called Snapchat. It has an accordion shape and much color!

THIS IS MY STORY by Maria Jesus

Here is a layout with a white background – I love to use them.


Another page with white background and with another element that I love to use in almost all the projects – die cuts made with the Cameo!


See – I like to use white! This is another mini album that I made and love.

GLOBE by Maria Jesus

I like to do home decor projects, but decorate globes the most!

I love how well-rounded Maria is in crafting – from layouts and mini albums to globes and home decor projects – she loves to create and I just love that!
