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. ♥


~~ Take your time ~~

Posted by Ania On Thursday, January 12, 2012


This Prima-layout was created using the Songbird-collection, along…well, all-new-stuff for CHA-W. You can find it on the Prima blog here. The picture is from the vacation in Paris we all had last Fall, and hmm.. I think this might be the first picture from that vacation that I’ve scrapped :p


This was also the first time I tried Ingvild Bolme’s craft knife, which I’m happy to report absolutely deserves a stamp of approval (yeah, like it counts for a lot, I know *grin*). Nevertheless..I cut part of the figurines, added another patterned paper as backing and then used small 3d foam squares to make sure the cuttings sorta stayed popup’ed.


Love these graphic tags! And the bling…and the tiny butterflies (whee) and the normal ones, which’s hairy this time. Initially I didn’t think that was a pretty addition (the earlier butterflies from Prima aren’t hairy sorta), but somehow I suddenly started to take a liking to them. Weird.


Lotsa pwetty flowers (adorned with crackle paint)! Oh, and a wooden clock, I truly love these… See the peachy piece of canvas btw? I sprayed golden glimmermist on it first then quick patches of vintage pink and it turned into a perfect blend of color that matched the papers superb. Pure luck that made me go whee! :)

Right. We’re baking Magnolia Bakerys Vanilla Cupcakes atm (or well, I printed out the recipe, made the kiddo double it and directed to the kids what to do. Worked swell!). The bare cupcakes tasted amazing - need to make the frosting now. I got a cupcake decorating set from my sister last Christmas, and the kid’s been bugging to use it ever since :)
