Introducing the Charming Maiko Miwa

pleasing; delightful: a charming layout.
a power of pleasing or attracting.

When I visited Mako's blog to see her chipboard projects, I was charmed by way she had used our chipboard. She thinks outside the square and comes up with innovative ways to used chipboard. Her work is lovely with lots of detail. I  am looking forward to seeing the Charming projects Maiko creates for us this year.
Here is what Maiko had to say about herself. 

I am a wife to a lovely husband and a mother to a 4 year old girl. I started to scrapbook in year 2008 because I wanted to store all the memories with my family in this beautiful way. Nowadays, I teach scrapbook near Kyoto. Other than teaching, I also love to create and have fun by myself at home! I am willing to challenge many things throughout scrapbook next year, and it is my dream to work for Imaginarium Designs! I can say my style is soft and feminine. I love to crop many elegant photos. When I am making a layout, I always try to make it look like the whole layout is one picture. I love to use a lot of rhinestones, stamps, mists, and inks for my creations. Thank you so much for looking.

Thanks so much for the introduction Maiko, and we can't wait to see more of your Charming creativity.

To see more of Maiko's work visit her blog.
