Get off the cross we need the wood

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. ♥


~~ What is it with you that makes me act like this ~~

Another day, another layout :)


I started on this layout at Ellens birthday, aimlessly reworking the pictures around among the papers before suddenly knowing how I wanted it to look like (yay!) – a sort of clustered area with ruffled frame around the photos. The background-paper is an old winter-paper from Sassafras actually, while the rest is Fancy Pants Designs :)sweetmemories_cu1

The cloud and star die-cuts were from the old Splendid-collection. I love that collection and am sad that I’m running out of it here at home!! Notice the three drops at the star? Played some with glossy accent :)sweetmemories_cu2

I made it for the product-spotlight on My Family journaling-book. The journaling-page is from that book. I highlighted the heart w/glossy accent :p The spotty frame-paper is made from the 12x12 notebook from the Artistan collection by the way. The papers in that book are thinner, and thus much more suited for creating such plaids.sweetmemories_cu3The banner-paper and stickers are from the new collection, wishful thinking. It’s such a gorgeous, feminine collection. My niece has her very own scrapbook & stash, which my daughter got to play with when we were visiting her earlier this winter. I guess I should give her her own stash aswell, but……what if I need to use the stuff I give to her myself sooner or later!??? The horror! ;p 

MarieSylta_2010_klut_27 I got a sweet & lovely surprise in the mail yesterday. Marie, also known as Banglamarie, knit this kitchen-towel (hmm, maybe not the correct word for it – it’s used to wash tables and stuff with, not dry – help me out here?) and mailed it to me. Such a thoughtful little gift – I adore it and well, I don’t really want to actually use it because…it’ll end up dirty and stuff! (even if it’s intended to :p)


Ps. If I had an iPhone…I’d totally play this game in Vigelandsparken, Oslo, this summer!! If you’re heading there & have an iPhone – try it out! It’s an interactive game for kids utilizing the whole park :)
