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. ♥

~~ More altered stuff… ~~

Posted by Ania On Sunday, December 18, 2011

2 posts in a row? Yeah,  I’m feeling pretty inspired atm…and because I had some gifts that needed to be done :p And because I’m still trying to clean up stuff…

Nevertheless…here’s a gift based on Wenches fab tutorial on how to make books

Materials used: papers from Pink Paislee, leaves & bling from Prima, wooden spool from Maya Road and stamps from Craft Origine (the words repertoire and carnet de notes plus the quill is from this stamp set).

As for the book-cover itself? Corrugated cardstock is simply perfect for this purpose :)

Here’s another gift using the food stamp from Craft Origine..it’s simple & once again I’m in love with the glimmermist-color “Patina” (which looks just the same as “Jazz Blue” imo) from tattered angels! So pretty against the white..

Another gift-wrap created with mostly old, old stuff! The front flower (Prima) and the tag (3ndypapir) are new, but the paper-flowers (Prima), heart doily & ribbon are old stuff I’m happy to finally get to put to use :)

Especially the ribbon…it’s sort of ugly, but it fit so well here, yay!

Right.

Still have a few more necessities to create, like a matchbox for myself for Christmas, a gift card for my daughter and some more tags for minor gifts…wrap up a few more minibooks for CHA… I’m starting to feel like I never get around to do layouts, but…need to get my priorities straight and get the smaller stuff done first!
