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. ♥

Yeah, I’m talking to you mom & sis! *smile*

This week Glue Arts is collaborating with Clear Scraps, and I got this funky clearshaped..uhm…shape…thing..called XL Deco shape….plus a transparent sheet to work with. There’s a small tutorial-ish piece on some parts of this layout on the Glue Art blog, as well as the usual giveaway :)


For this one I dug up lots of my old faves – Hambly rubons, Making Memories journaling tag (the scallopcircle one I used for the title), a mix of Prima and Kort&Godt flowers, some of my favorite 3ndypapir-papers, letters from American Crafts, bling from KaiserCraft and ribbons and button from Crate Paper (I guess they’re the newest SB-things here on this layout).

Oh, and a punch from Martha Stewart…I purchased a new one – the big scallop-fan-thingie. I really love that one, but after using it like, twice or so, it looks like the metal springs refuse to work properly – at least it takes double the work & some wiggling in between each punch. Hrmm. I guess I could try oiling the springs, but I’m afraid that’ll cause lots of oilspills on the papers for a good long while…? I purchased it on sale from a store that folded, so I highly doubt I can get a replacement, bleh..


Nevertheless… that I finally got around to use the Hambly rubons and that these hadn’t dried out. The Glue Art Raisen’s are perfect for the transparency – you’ll hardly see it through the transparency and it yields such nice dimension to the project to :)


And here’s a project I did for Glue Arts last week – a hair clip/barrette holder made w/an empty box (mine’s from zutter). I’ve made one my daughter’s using a few years ago…I think I’ll keep this and fill it w/new hairclips – it’s soon her best friends birthday, and it’ll make a cute minigift methinks. You can find the tutorial here.


I used a mix of Crate Paper’s Neighborhood and Emma’s Shoppe for this one. While I think it turned out a bit too busy, I believe little girls will love it nevertheless. I hope. Smile with tongue out

Right. Weekend, sweet weekend. Might drop by the summerplace sometime this weekend, plus I’ve got a few (cough) photos to edit now =) Can’t wait to share more amazing photos from the big Tove+Trym celebration! :)


Ps. Big thanks for the congratulations on my last blogpost *smile* =)

    Kjempeflott LO, så stilig med den store clear shapen som bakgrunn. :)
