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. ♥


~~ Crate Paper May Sketch ~~

Posted by Ania On Sunday, May 22, 2011


Love Emily Pitts’ sketches for Crate Paper. I figured it’d be great for some photos of me and my littlesister…This time I flipped the sketch upside down for my layout…added a few things that cluttered my desk…decided it’d clutter my layout instead ;p Like that übercool arrow – it’s actually from Scenic Route – old old old – lovesit. Never had heart to throw it away, glad I did not :)

Doily…dang…I’m really into doilies these days…great accent for cards and layouts alike..

Nevertheless…it’s a lovely sketch, come come join – there’ll be prizes as usual :)


Tags from Elle’s Studio – love’em.. chipboard, pleated flower and wooden bingo-thingie from Maya Road…flowers from Prima, bling from KaiserCraft….and ofcourse – papers, ribbon and chipboards from Crate Paper – a mix of Neighborhood, Emma’s Shoppe and Toy Box.


The photos are all iPhone-images. This strip used on this layout comes from my sister, who uses another photobooth-app than me (I’m not quite sure which one – note to self: ask her..I really like the colors/effects she had on hers..). Nevertheless..for printing, her images were not too good – but it worked fine for a 4x6” print… mine (I’m using pocketbooth) are of higher quality, and I’ve printed them out pretty largeish (6 across the broad side of an A4-print) just fine. I just can’t seem to adjust the quality of the images w/pocketbooth (neither in the app nor in the general settings), so I’m just glad it yields pretty ok printable images…you can see below how I’ve been using the fun photostrips..I love the B&W images from this app…it totally rocks..the colors..not so much…but that’s just taste I guess :) :


I think Amalie’s in like, 95% of of the strips..she’s the one using the app the most :p
There’s a family-gathering next weekend and I totally look forward to expand that wall w/more photobooth-pictures!


Wrapping up this Sunday Post with what’s been on my ear for a while now…..I simply adore Adele

I let it fall, my heart…


And Don’t you remember:

I often think about where I went wrong, the more I do, the less I know..

    LOVE that layout, Ania! SO cute!! I love how you used the corner punches!! AND I love, love, love, Adele!! I have this whole album on repeat all the time. So awesome! I've never seen that second live video. She's so beautiful - especially without all the makeup. I'm also going to check out pocketbooth - looks awesome!

    Such a fun idea! How did you get multiple pocketbooth strips to print out across a page? Did you print in another program or straight from pocketbooth?
