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. ♥

~~ Black Cat ~~

A quick look at my 2011-scrapbooking folder tells me I’ve created 5 cards so far, 3 bookmarks and only two layouts. Hm.

Here I was inspired by the Moxie Fab Color Inspiration for Card Makers Week: The Bright and Bold challenge  – they have since come out with two new color-inspirations, I think I’ll try these too.

I took a slice of white bazzill-cardstock, grabbed some brads in the challengecolors (black, white, pink, orange) and this Fancy Pants Designs rub-on from a Halloween-collection (Trick or Treat I think it was called). Not my usual style, but I really like this one and want to try perfect this style, at least include it when it comes to creating cards. However, the problem when I do these cards once in a while is that I feel I can’t give them away or stuff, because I “feel” people expect more from me, that you need to put more things on the card to make it seem worthwhile. Anyone else feeling that way too?

Nevertheless, seen the happy news? :) I’m sincerely delighted to have been asked to stay for another term with Crate Paper (and there’s a peek of the new collections in the image, and I love reading 10random things about the other designers too :) ).

 

And yes, I do notice that I’m not on so many design teams now as I used to – I get restless quicker and perhaps that’s why I’ve thrown myself at these online challenges atm? I really need to have “something” to scrap for – I’ve always had it that way ever since I started scrapbooking – it’s not enough to “just” scrap, it preferably needs to fulfil something else too – a DT-commitment, a challenge, a contest – something to spark the initial start of the project itself.  Hmm!

    Selvsagt ville de ha deg med videre. Ingen problem med å skjønne den! Fine kortet; og det er ingen grunn til å være så kritisk til deg selv i forhold til hva folk forventer å få. Har man ikke vett til å bli glad for det man får så får det heller bare være spør du meg! Kos deg med scrappingen - og du; det var de gryteklutene og den heklingen ;) Komme på te en dag da :) Klem
