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. ♥

Sort of feeling like that.

Today I figured I’d share a box, a card, and a layout with ya…

Let’s do the layout first, shall we…

ania_layout1

This one’s for Maya Road, as you might have guessed from all the Maya Road-ish embellishments used here…. the backgroundpaper’s from ColorConspiracy….they have so many patterns that’s perfect as backgroundpaper – one-ish color yet interesting..sort of…:)

ania_layout2

One – love the doily clear stamps – yields such gorg, crisp (im?)prints every single time. Two – kraft butterfly? Yesthankyouplease. Three – see the “bed” of ribbon/fabric that the cluster is attached to? That’s the organza tea garden trim which’s discontinued methinks, so if you see it – grab it.

ania_layout3

Added a lil paperribbonthingie from American Crafts (Dear Lizzie).

ania_layout4

I’m not one for huge flowers, but that yellow flower (Satin Scallop Edge)? Lovesit.

 

Right. Over to the card..

ania_card1

Love the elegance transparencies automatically gives (borrows?) to cards when used like this, as an extra folder…The transparency & paper here’s from ColorConspiracy-

ania_card2

Twine and dangling embellishments from Maya Road..

ania_card3

Cluster put together from random bits & pieces from Pink Paislee, Hambly, Maya Road, Heidi Swapp (red chipboard heart!! loved those!) and Prima.

ania_card4

Yeap. Really like the feel the transparency lends to the card. I tried to dot the piece of tulle by the way, didn’t turn entirely the way I wanted, but ahwell…

ania_card5

Gold glitter ftw!

ania_box

And finally….a chocolate box. Papers and die cuts from ColorConspiracy, kraft butterfly from Maya Road.

ania_box2

It’s a simple box. Just a thinking-of-you-get-well-chocolate-box for a coworker of mine.

ania_box3

It was quickly put together, and well appreciated.

 

Right.

Almost caught up.

Work’s been keeping me busy as usual, and right now I’m engaged in a project building up & readying the paper I work for, for a new system coming this Fall. Then I’m off to another weeklong course - my 2nd of this years four courses. Then, when I’m back, I should be back to my regular, writing work-self (been away from my regular work for half a week now and it’s I’m so, so itching to do some real writing…eeks….). Not that anybody cares, but ah well… :)

Look at me, I can stamp!

Sort of.

:) Just sharing a couple cards made w/Craft Origine-stamps…love the wood mounted stamps – yields such gorg, crisp impressions! (oh and notice – I’m finally getting rid of my box of Heidi Swapp ghost stars! :D)

ania_march1

This stamp was also used on the 1st card btw – just inked & cut out the 1st banner sort of :)

Babyphotocards must have this onesie transparency cut out from Hambly! Also, hidden behind that is a gem studded heart trinket from Prima.

 

Btw, ColorConspiracy is soon coming out with a new release – Texturize 2.0. Loved the first one, love this one as well :)

So.

Hi. I’ve been scrapping. In between.

Here’s a layout for ColorCOnspiracy.. w/photos of my sister and nephew…

ania_dreams

I like the new papers from ColorConspiracy…they come w/patterns on the bottom tag or whatever it’s called. Yields more possibilities for the papers methinks :)

ania_dreams2

ColorConspiracy has cute die cuts as well, as seen above and below..

ania_dreams3

And the clouds were made by using the star punch (Martha Stewart everywhere on the page one) first then cutting out the cloud (w/the Fiskars cloud punch).

Well. I thought that looked somewhat nifty..

Right.
TGIF.

Have schoolstuff and scrapbookingstuff to catch up w!
