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. ♥


~~ Little boxes on the hillside ~~

Posted by Ania On Monday, January 16, 2012
The January Prima Product Pick & Color palette is up, and within minutes of seeing this palette I whipped up this little box. Literally. Or well, maybe not, but I did start on this the same evening as the palette was revealed to us (funny sidenote; just read this article on memories which questions whether our memories really are our own/correct…. intriguing piece..esp the hot balloon-experiment).
Nevertheless. This palette:

..was the one that inspired me immensely.
I used prima-products from CHA-S for this one, ie – none of the new stuff. So, sorry if you wanted a peek or two of the new stuff! I must say – I *love* these leaves – they come in both metallic-colors (Aglow) & in felt (Vermont). Sigh. Wish I had more of these!

If you want to make your own box feel free to check out the tutorial here. You need two such boxes (or well, halves) – made from squares measuring approx 8 1/4 x 8 1/4 and 8 3/4 x 8 3/4 inches (ie, 1/2 inch diff in size…approx). Don’t forget the circle-punch to create such half-thingies you see pictured above; it’ll make it easier to take these boxes on/off.
I like making such boxes. Personally I think bulky flowers are difficult to work with when it comes to traditional layouts – but for such projects they’re such a perfect match!

Had some fun last night with this one. Need to practice more and stop being fazed by mistyping stuff – that makes me lose seconds!! The top people doing this test types like, 190ish words per minute. Wow!

Dandelion. Hey I need to think about that.
