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. ♥

~~ So Luxe! ~~

Posted by Ania On Thursday, September 11, 2008

Yay!!! My second DT-box from Luxe Designs arrived yesterday, and yumminess!! I got it as I was on my way to a crop, so dropped by the postoffice to grab the box -- I mean - how can I not wait?? (Uh. Or is it...how can I wait?? Um. *confused*) (and boy was the queue at the office %&%&&/ long)

Started on this layout on the crop yesterday -- made some ATCs and used the leftover MME papers w/the new Luxe Simple Orange (lovelovelove..orange and brown..sooo yummy)...distressed it some w/Glimmer Mist and bronze paint.....used some cutouts from the Sprinkles line and one of the new labels called Luxe-urious Labels in Turquoise. All the Luxe stuff used is new - from Summer CHA :) :) And the photo? Me, my grandparents, mom and my little sister (in that ultracool vintage stroller behind mom)..oh, and my orange and green stroller....lovesit....still have it in the cellar at moms :D


Now. I know it's not nice to brag/boast...but...uhm...I can't help it...and!!! In my mind I'm not doing that mind you - I'm rather being excited and awed and want to share - cause..just look at what I got from Luxe.....



Um yeah..what's that glue doing there??
See, Scrapbook Adhesives were so kind to sponsor the Luxe girls...I know, it's totally crazy..we got this 12x12 ziplockbag totally filled to the brim w/adhesive...lots and lots and lots and so many diff....o.O (and yes, if you wonder if I feel lucky - the answer is duh, yes....!!)


THANK YOU SO MUCH LUXE & SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES!!!!!! :D :D :D


Oh, and while I'm doing the finishing touches on my ATCs...hm, I don't know if I'm just lazy or if I really think this is a "technique"...but....love using my fingers instead of paintbrush for painting on the edges...love this metallic bronze paint... love paint on my fingers & nails :D

Signing off by sharing some vintage Tori Amos love --- thanks to Perez Hilton (yes I love to read him..hey..I need some guilty pleasures too!)who brought them up -- I've been listening to Tori Amos all day...lovelovelove :) These two are from Little Earthquakes, her first (and imo best) album from years ago....sung live...she's so amazing live...





Have a nice week! :)

Ps! Weeds & Dexter. O.O Love great shows!

    Jeg digger de nye labelstickersene fra Luxe!! Og så utrolig finfint og omtenksomt å gi dere lim! Det er jo forbruksvare! Tori er bra! Har du forresten hørt Juliana Hatfield? Ikke egentlig sammenlignbart med Tori, men det er litt sånn chill 90talls " småforbanne, men samtidig litt lystig dame med gitar"-musikk :D

    Hi hi! Jeg skulle spørre det samme som mari, om fargen var fra søstrene grene. For den ser helt lik ut og den er nyyydelig!

    Så mye digg du har fått fra Luxe! Det orange og grønne er lekkert! Labelsene er dritkule!

    Hurra for weeds og dexter. Kan knapt vente på siste episode av weeds! SPENNENDE!!! Og jeg er litt skeptisk til at det kommer ny sesong med dexter... Syns slutten var bra, men I'll give it a try.
