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. ♥


~~ Didyaseethat? Maya Road??~~

Posted by Ania On Thursday, June 16, 2011



It’s been sorta killing me not being able to share this earlier…haha..

And I’m pretty flabbergasted that Maya Road actually were aware of me…enough to ask me to join their team…I’d never have imagined that in my wildest dreams…tbh I’ve been secretly a bit bummed that they didn’t have official calls, then suddenly out of the blue they asked if I’d like to try out for a position…uhm…yes??? So it’s been a few nervewrecking weeks until everything fell in place & the position was official. Congrats to my fellow MRDT-newbies Angella Peardon and Melissa Sauls!

Right now they have a week-long Design Team Feature, where the designteam-members share their favorite Maya Road-item and you can win a prize package consisting of 5 Maya Mists from the early summer release.


My favorite Maya Road items were too difficult to pick, so I had to go with the generic ANYTHING with chipboards! I love how versatile the raw chipboards can be – you can mist, paint, dress up w/papers, glitterify, whatever – with them. And then I guess I have to admit the birds of a feather set (it’s fairly old, and I’m almost out of it now) are one of the favorites among the chipboard-sets.



Look, isn’t pretty when used with the Doodlebug Sugar Coating Glitter?

The raw chipboardheart is actually a minibook, one where I tore off the pages so I could use them like this.


This kind of card is pretty popular among the cardmakers, and I get why. It’s easy and it does look a little bit fancy…for almost no extra effort compared to “regular” cards. I’m not quite sure what it’s called – easelcard?


Love the flowers and trinkets too!


And the chipboard-bird & branch….I love the look glitter+glossy accent together yields…and if you seal the glitter w/glossy accent or some other glossy adhesive, the glitter won’t spread/fall off…big plus….since I wow every time I use glitter it’ll be my last time….love the look, hate the mess!

    Woooo hoooo!!! and Congratulations! It's easy to see why they wanted you on thier team when this card is just one example of your beautiful work. I agree, the chipboard is just amazing - so versatile, and always so much in one packet that you can make a whole myriad of projects with it. But the mists are mighty fabulous too. Well done again :-)
