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. ♥


~~ Look, she stamps! ~~

Posted by Ania On Friday, August 19, 2011


It’s true. I’ve stamped!

Sentiments only, but still. I’ve stamped ;)

Glue Arts had a product swap with Paper Smooches, hence the stamping…I got to chose what kind of stamp I’d like to work with, and well, since I’m no stamper I figured if I went for the sentiments I’d be safe…at least nothing that required me trying to color in and stuff, which..I’d only attempted once I think, at a crop borrowing some uh, copics I think? from the other girls, and well, I don’t think you’d like me to attempt that for a DT-project haha…not until I’ve had some practice at least cough..

Right. I’m babbling. Back to track: Sentiments. Like Happy Birthday, congratulations and stuff – nice and safe and oh, so versatile :)



I figured I’d make a small stack of premade cards for the occasions when the kids comes home with a note/invitation that they’re invited to someones birthdayparty the same day (happens oh too often..they get these invitations and forget about presenting them to us adults until like half an hour before it starts,…love it when it happens….not!


Anyways – I used Pink Paislee for my cards – mostly Hometown, but also some bits of the older collections.


And I really liked this “you rock” sentiment. :)


Just guess I’ll doublecheck with the kiddo whether he’ll really use one such card for a girl or not..


Right. Last card. These were fairly quick and easy to make.


Love to create dimension with the UCutit-foam – here I placed two together to build the height for the “you rock” banner :)

Right. If you head over to the Glue Arts-post you’ll read more about my experiences with stamping..took me a couple of tries before I nailed down how to stamp these clearstamps to get a nice & crisp expression :)

    Sorry about the multiple comments. For some reason, the first one didn't go through until later.
