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. ♥


~~ Pink, Pinker, Pinkest? ~~

Posted by Ania On Tuesday, January 18, 2011

Lol, I know – it’s pink, more pink, then..uh..I’m not quite sure….totally pink? :p


Just wanted to share a pink card I created. Now, normally I’d probably not make a pink card. Hm. I know I most likely wouldn’t – not like, all pink, at least. It’s so cliché. But. Challenges, you know?

Oh yeah, another one of Moxie Fab’s color-challenges…I wonder if I’ll actually get to finish them all within the timeline? Three down, three to go afaik. Life’s bit busy atm, working on questionnaire-drafts for my MA (it’s NOT as easy as I thought! I have to be short, precise and I feel the need to over-define the meaning of words I’m using in the questionnaire to make sure to prevent misunderstanding of concepts and blah blah, especially for the online survey-part) and freelancing for the local newspaper…but hey, – I enjoy this life so far :)


Nevertheless, here’s the three pink colors we were supposed to work…(it’s adhered to the gift, which’s kraftwrapped, so please ignore the kraft part for this challenge) the paper’s from Pink Paislee’s Sweetness-collection, a scrap I had lying around here – letters from Fancy Pants Designs, and the flower from Prima. The stamp is an all time favorite, the only one I kept of all my wood-mounted stamps (because let’s face it, I so suck at using stamps) because I knew I’d reuse this one at least…it’s hm, Anna Griffin if I’m not too mistaken. Loves.


So long, gotta continue working! :)

Ps. I changed the threads I’m using on my sewing machine, with a thicker thread – now it’s so much more visible and I love it! Give thicker threads a try yourself too, if you haven’t yet :)


Oh, and before I leave…check out these peeks from Crate Paper!


This is the boy-line…see the neutral alphabetpaper (I assume! I haven’t seen this collection myself, as it’s on its way overseas atm!) ? Lovesit! Am not too sure about the army-stuff, whether it’s actually patterned with these motifs or if it’s just for the AD, as personally my kid doesn’t play with that, but we’ll see – I totally approve of the colorscheme!


And this is apparently the girl-line – hello insta-love! Yes, please!

There’s two more lines to be revealed, keep a close tab on the Crate-blog for these in the next few days!

Dandelion. Hey I need to think about that.
