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. ♥


~~ Always up to something aren’t you? ~~

Posted by Ania On Friday, June 01, 2012


Have you seen the Maya Road & Paper Crafters Library giveaways?

Designers from both were given the same 10 MR-products to work with. Watching what the other designers did with the same “limited” products as me was fun for me at least! :D

Here’s the list over the items we got, and the rules:

  1. Love hangers
  2. mini triangle banner canvas pieces
  3. kraft mini tags
  4. Slushie Blue twine
  5. Mini gingham trim - coffee brown
  6. Zipper trim - leaf
  7. Ruffle Blossoms - turqoise and yellow
  8. Jonathan chipboard alphabet
  9. Ornate Vintage Butterflies stamp
  10. Vintage Lace Mums - Apple

And were given the following rules:

  1. You must use all 10 Maya Road products
  2. You can make a layout, 3 cards, or a minibook
  3. You cannot use any other Maya Road products

And here’s my take, teehee:




Now, Paper Crafters Library – who are they? Here’s what they’re saying about themselves:

The world of paper crafting is HUGE! Whether you are a beginner, or you’ve been creating for years, the sheer number of different products, tools, techniques and project ideas can be overwhelming.After spending 6 years helping thousands of paper crafters around the world become more successful in the creative space through her series of kits, digital tutorials and online classes, Andrea Walford began looking for a new approach to education. In 2011 she launched Paper Crafter’s Library – the first, and still to this day, only website that provides an all-in-one learning solution for paper crafters. With almost 800 videos currently in their library and 4-5 new videos added each week, Paper Crafter’s Library offers comprehensive training on products, tools, techniques, and project ideas. From beginner through to advanced, whether your interest is in stamping, card making, scrapbooking, creating 3D items or altered art – you’ll find all the resources you need to navigate the world of paper crafting in ONE place, organized and indexed so that it’s quick and easy to find.

Hum. That’s it!

And the papers? Happy Go Lucky from Pebbles inc. A dang cute collection! Looks a bit muted in my photos, but are so lovely irl :)
