About Me

Maybe-not-really-20-something-anymore from Norway who likes to scrapbook and take photos documentarystyle and dreams of photojournalism when not working as a photojournalist and that's pretty much what this blog is about. And I like it this way.



My Scrapbooking

Been scrapbooking since late fall 2005. Currently fortunate enough to be a part of the design teams for Hambly Screenprints, Fancy Pants Designs and Pencil-Lines. ♥

Well, I totally am soon :)

Right – I like these air balloon-cards. So little effort, such a fun card!

jeanette2

Just make sure to use patterned papers that’s two sided :)

Hum well, I think I am a bit fed up of creating cards like this. More on that later.

Cards for men are the most difficult ones methinks. Sigh. I need to buy more male-ish stuff & embellishments, no?

Remember this little missy?

_D3S8861-copy

Just finished editing all the photos from this babysession..

I love clients with gorgeous window light and uncluttered space allowing for photos like these..

_DSC8492-copy

And look at these tiny, tiny babytoes ..

_DSC8497-copy

Right now I’m putting the finishing touches on the babycard so that the CD with the photos will be ready to be sent in the mail tomorrow…

Thanks so much for wanting to wait until I was available to get to shoot your little baby! :)

Had such a wonderful time :)

~~ Little Miss F, part 1 ~~

I visited a little friend today. Her parents, whose wedding I was so fortunate to shoot last year (while little miss F was in her mothers tummy nevertheless), asked me if I wanted to photograph her before Christmas. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the time back then, but they patiently waited for me and well, here’s the pictures =)

_D3S8690

She had just learned how to roll around, and kept doing that a lot of the time. Cute, but stressing for the photographer trying to shoot her away from the edges of the carpet! =)

_D3S8699

She seemed like a thoughtful and serious little missy..

_D3S8720

Who appreciated her cuddly toys…

_D3S8733

Wondering what her parents were up to this particular day.

_D3S8747

Loved shooting a baby once again, it’s been a while!

_D3S8987

Thanks much for letting me photograph her! More photos to come…

Cards, cards, cards…

card

Well actually, it’s just one card…

but lately it seems like it’s pretty much all I do, whenever I get to sit by the scrapping table. Create cards.

card1

Who would have known, eh? I used to think that I could not do cards at all. Not saying that I can now, just saying I do quite enjoy making cards these days..

card2

Especially when I get to play with little bits and pins and trinkets from Maya Road :)

card3These always enhance any project :)

card4

And that’s pretty much all I get time to do these days, with 2013 being full of part time studies and lots of exciting and fun projects and stuff to do at work..

 

nuts

I did manage to sneak in quite a few simpler, smaller tag/gift wrapping projects for Christmas…but I grew tired of photographing them, they all were on the simple side..although this one was a tad more elaborate…

 

Right. Here’s to the new year… I wish for continued exciting projects and to get to explore more amazing stories at work… for more time to do the things I find fun, interesting and meaningful… and for a little more creative me-time in between as well.. :)

Gift tags and stuff…

Posted by Ania On Thursday, December 05, 2013 1 lovely comments

It’s been a while, yada yada blah blah.

I’m still around :)

riga1

Since last time I’ve made a box outta Maya Road’s lunch boxes, decorated’em with more Maya Road embellishments.

riga2riga3riga4

The booklet/card is made outta cardboard – cut’em out, adhere patterned papers & decorate..

riga5

I’ve also taken some time to decorate more pressies…

Using scraps (the card/background is a leftover page from a mini album w/chipboard pages)

Mixing Maya Road & Crate Paper stuff.

~~ Wrapping even more stuff ~~

Wrapping more stuff, using the perfect stamps from Craft Origine :)

ania_aug

Even getting to use good ol’ Scenic Route papers :)

ania_aug2

Life’s sort of slow and fast at the same time. Lots of time spent on work and other work-related stuff, like studying for an upcoming exam and doing exciting and inspiring projects.

 

So I’ve decided to start a little bit earlier on gifts and stuff. I think. I hope.

 

 

In other news, Maya Road is announcing a new card kit type thing. Go check it out :)

Also – check out this song – yeah - I’m late to the party, but I love it now, that’s what count, eh? :)

Don’t you love the nod to Wicked’s Popular? :)
