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.

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. ♥


~~ Fancy a scrappy giveaway? ~~

Posted by Ania On Thursday, June 14, 2012

Giveaway closed now



I’ve been promising my hubby I’ll clean up my scrappy stuff and make a real effort to..uhm..become slightly more organized re the stuff I have.

Hum. I’ve promised him this for a very long time…time to do something about it!


So. Finally made a sort of effort the other day. Just a teeny bit of effort, but hey, it’s a start? So I found a C4 envelope and started stuffing it to the brim. This is what I managed to find that wasn’t opened/used. You see, I have a problem – I usually open things to just use one or two pieces, leaving the rest mint but not used… I dunno. Would it be silly to have another giveaway w/these items as well, or do you really mind such details?? Nevertheless. As mentioned…the items pictured should be nib/never before opened…and as far as I recall I managed to add one or two more items into the envelope after this picture was taken. Prima, Sassafras, Crate Paper, Maya Road, Fiskars, Bella Blvd, Pebbles, October Afternoon and Simple Stories, unless I’m not too mistaken.



  1. Just comment on this post. Say whatever you like. Yields one ticket.
  2. Really want an extra chance/ticket? Share the giveaway w/others (in whatever platform you prefer), and come back and comment again.

That’s it.

Drawing open until Sunday evening, and yes, open to everybody. I’ll announce a winner on Sunday (probably around 9pm my time…or if I’m really exhausted from working, I’ll post on Monday :p)

    Ønsker meg denne pakken ja :) og jeg synes ikke det gjør noe om tingene er åpnet.... Det er vel få som bruker opp ALT fra slike pakker, så en liten smakebit fra en pakke er fint det også :)


  2. Eli Said,'> 8:21 PM

    *rekker opp hånden* Er gjerne med i trekning :):) - og som du vet så bryr ikke jeg meg om det er åpne pakker eller ei :) Men; rydde og holde det organisert? Er det helt din ting? :P Det er noe som heter kreativt rot får du si til din kjære og smile pent. Kan jo være at det hjelper :) (det og så en Ben&Jerry-is. Fikser alt ;) ) Håper du får kost deg masse med å være kreativ også; ikke bare rydde :) Klem, E

    Wow, vad generöst! Jag tar gärna en lott! :) Och jag skulle inte bry mig det minsta om något var öppnat, för mig skulle det ju vara nya saker ändå! ;)


  4. Nitasha Said,'> 9:21 PM

    Oh, there is a ton of cutensss in this package! Thanks so much for sharing, and I for one, don't mind open packages if you're considering another giveaway! : )

  17.'> 10:32 PM

    Jeg skjønner ikke at noen klarer å la være å åpne det de kjøper jeg. Jeg er som en unge på julaften hver gang jeg har kjøpt noe - alt må åpnes, tas på og testes ut :)

    What a great idea to clean up the workspace. I'd love to benefit from this tidy-ing. Thank you for your generosity - your hubby will be so happy!


  31. SuZeQ Said,'> 2:27 PM

    You said "any platform" ... don't have a blog so I e-mailed a friend. Hope that's acceptable because I really fancy some of these items you're "donating to the cause" ... thank you!


  32. Anonymous Said,'> 2:51 PM

    I love it when someone else cleans up and offers me the goodies!! Hope I win! Thanks for the opportunity.

  36. Evelin Said,'> 5:58 PM

    wow! awesome! :) I think people don't mind if the rest of the items are mint... besides, i think a lot of us are guilty of using just a piece or two and keep the rest of the pack unused! :P


  37. julie Said,'> 6:43 PM

    Wow! All those goodies look very scrumptious! Would be very happy to receive this giveaway.

  48. Suzelle Said,'> 6:31 PM

    Oh my FUN !!!!!!!!


  49. Kirsten Said,'> 12:52 AM

    Flott giveaway! Og en giveaway til med åpnede ting er helt greit! Jeg er også sånn at jeg åpner ting for å ta på dem og når jeg nå har tenkt å ha en giveaway selv så har jeg også tenkt tanken på om jeg kan bruke noe som er åpnet, men mange bruker jo ikke alt i en pakke og å ha litt av mye forskjellig er jo egentlig genialt!


  50. Unknown Said,'> 3:33 AM

    WOW!!! there's so many goodies I love !!


  51. Ruth Said,'> 10:40 AM

  55. Unknown Said,'> 9:37 PM

    What a lovely thing to do, sharing stash with other crafters. Hoping good things are visited on you love Karen


  56. Unknown Said,'> 9:40 PM
