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. ♥


~~ I don’t know if I can yell any louder ~~

Posted by Ania On Sunday, July 18, 2010

Hope you’re enjoying your summer so far!

I’m gonna share a small project I did for 3ndypapir – a bit summery perhaps, because I used the empty plastic-boxes you get from buying ready-made potato-salad (yeah yeah I know – homemade is WAY yummier than most you get from the store….I’m working with myself to get better at making my own).

tomboks  Nevertheless – if you do have any of these boxes- they’re high and nice – hold on to them. They’ll make nifty giftboxes :)

grethe3 Just bake some cookies – here I made some French macaroons. (Yummy recipe here. Norwegian one, sorry!). I made these because I was making aioli, and had all those egg-whites left….. :)

grethe1I cut out this card from the paper “sommerhilsen”, sewed it on purple cardstock and cut it w/a patterned pair of scissors, sewed & decorated it some.. found a mini-doily (yay!) & placed it on it.


Made the kiddo sign it (bwahah). grethe4

Then wrapped a broad strip of paper on the box.. grethe5

And placed the “card” upon it.  grethe6

Voila – cute hostess-gift! grethe7 sirus1

I had another box – which wasn’t as tall as the other one, so I dropped the lid here. sirus2

Instead I wrapped a broad doily-ribbon around & made a large card to place upon it.

I grabbed a tag & sewed a few pieces of scrap-paper upon & decorated it. Love this vine-paper from Hambly – so versatily and you only need small pieces of it & it makes any project instantly cooler – win! :)


Have fun! :)

    Så søte de ble, du er kreativ som klarer å bruke potetsalatboksene til noe såå fint:D (Forøvrig synes jeg kjøpepotetsalat smaker helt godt nok, jeg gidder aldri å lage selv når man får noe som funker så fint ferdig fra butikken:P)

    Yummy! Macaroons... mmmm.. This is a cool way to use up little boxes. I love those decorations for the tops. Great idea - I just might have to borrow it!

    Så utrolig smart... de så knall gode ut, og skal absolutt prøves ut de kakene.
    Er stadig innom blogen din og kikker, jeg syntes du er utrolig kreativ og lagermasse fine prosjekter.

    I want to make these so badly, but I cannot find the almond flour anywhere. I need to wait until I get my shipment and just grind my own!
