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. ♥


~~ This one’s for the Winter ~~

Posted by Ania On Sunday, September 19, 2010


Things gets confusing sometimes. Like this card, which I now see I’ve forgotten to share. A weddingcard. Wedding = Hambly. No doubt about that.weddingcu1

And I love the copper-paint partly applied to the edges here. This fleur-thingie is from Tattered Angels by the way, sprayed w/lots of gold & peach mist and embellished w/a primagem. weddingcu2Yeah, a sort of traditional wedding card – love that Hambly have these lovely designs perfect for such stuff.

tursnacks Hm. Made this layout for Pencil-Lines, but no, I seriously don’t like the result. Too boring…too plain.. too bleh.. hrm…well. At least I got rid of a few scraps from my ever-flooding-table. That’s good for something, huh?

tursnacks_cuDespite the simplicity of this layout there’s a mix of Fancy Pants Designs, Sassafras, Hambly & MLS on it…

Feeling mellow..

made this cake yesterday (well, hubbys cousin baked the cake when she was here earlier this week, and I put it together & decorated it for her)..

DSC_4194 DSC_4191 It looked like a huge slab of chocolate, but tasted yummy..esp the frosting :)

I also made this little cake-topper from Elle’s Studio-tags, red cardstock and letters from Pink Paislee. Sorta more quick and easy than buying & adding 85 candles…. :)

IMG_1542blog See ya :)

Ps. Random.

DSC_4105 Nailpolish has sort of been “my” kind of makeup – considering I rarely use any makeup at all (mostly because I can’t put on makeup to save my life…I need to learn some Asian makeup-tricks! If there are any..?? Lately I’ve tried to add some eyeliner w/various results..but I digress). Anyways. The interest was huge in college but has been up and down the last few years, but is now resparked (blaming Xstine for that). Here’s First Class Ticket from China Glaze’s Vintage Vixen collection (worn for three days at the time the picture was taken)…swoon! I’m crazy for Deborah Lippmann’s Bad Romance & Across the Universe, but she don’t ship Internationally, duh >< (and the ebay’ed stuff I’ve seen is so expensive when it comes to shipping :( )

Oh, and edited to add – it’s still 30 more minutes of today (19th): In honor of Talk Like a Pirate Day – Top Ten Pickuplines for Pirates ;)

Lalala…see yas!

    great card and layout!! That cake looks sooooooo yummy. And i really really need that color of polish. My new fave has been a purply black - but doesn't even compare to that. Can you get it online. I NEED IT!!
