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. ♥

Somebody’s got married yesterday.

Evidently.

I adore weddings. I love being part of them.

_D3S3819-copy

Y’know, everything about weddings, from witnessing the very first look….

The first touch.._D3S4188-copy

The chaos right before the ceremony…

The wedding portraits..

The looks…

The (many) kisses…

The warmth and joy coming from family and friends celebrating the holy matrimony together.

And little moments like this, mirroring the quirks and typical feats of the day, like the day being so hot…these are the reasons why I love being part of a couples special day.

Thank you so much, Mariann and Stein-Olav!

~~ Enjoying cards ~~

Posted by Ania On Friday, July 19, 2013 0 lovely comments

I enjoy doing cards more and more – I gotta admit that. Although more often than not my cards maybe aren’t that traditional sort of….?

Nevertheless..here’s a card I made a while ago, using ColorConspiracy papers & a piece of Maya Road journaling spot.

 

Speaking of Maya Road, it’s reveal time over at the Maya Road Company Blog, and with that – prizes and such to win…

Some of my faves so far are these metal thingies:

These wooden hearts:

These lightbulb transparencies..

And these tu tu tulle flowers in new, soft pastel colors:

 

Love tradeshow & reveal time – I keep pinning my faves here if you’re interested :)

So, it’s been a while since I played along with the Prima BAP, but the July sketch by Marie-Nicolas Alliot was so inspiring so I played happily along :)

Along with a bunch of my Prima scraps and flowers, I also added some of my fave Maya Road pins..

ania_primabox3

As well as some red paper twine cording (also Maya Road), and this time I also decided to add decorations along the sides…The Ingrid Bolme resin well was colored with ink, also by Ingrid Bolme. Love these, they’re my fave chalk inks atm…

Feels like I’ve been scrapping and creating with graphic papers only lately, so it was fun to go a bit romantic-ish again :)

~~ More Facebook-headers ~~

Posted by Ania On Sunday, July 14, 2013 0 lovely comments

Hum.

Seems like I left on a mini vacation without posting the rest of my FB-headers! =)

 

januar

So. January. Taken at the same slope that I used to practice skiing and sledging at my childhood home (a very small/flat slope – perfect for small children :p).

febfeb2feb3feb4

For February I tested four different headers…only used one or maybe two of them though. These is the annual birthday party invitations photos slash look how big you’ve become portraits– Adrian turned twelve.

mars

For March I used this one, an iPhone-photo of the kids and their cousin from one of our small hikes around the home.

 

april

This one’s for April – Amalie turned 8…

påskeheader

One for Easter…ania_mai

May…taken at the bdayparty for Amalie…mai2

Also May…taken during an assignment for the paper – doing a feature on bird spotters at Herdla.

junijuni2

For June I started off with the first header above, although I did consider the latter for a while…

 

juni4

Then wrapped up June with this one, also taken at Herdla.

juli2

July started with this header of Amalie and Kasper..

juli3

And I think I’ll stick to this one from the recent trip to Oslo for the rest of the month…

 

And for those wondering the exact measurements of the Facebook headers…it’s 851px x 315 px if you want to create premade headers …:)

~~ My Facebook-headers, part 1 ~~

Posted by Ania On Wednesday, July 03, 2013 3 lovely comments

Did I ever mention that time flies goddarn fast? Hm.

I’m trying to update my FB-headers twice a month. And I only now noticed that I forgot to add a new header for July. Sigh.

I don’t post much on FB. But I do like to post new headers…

Figured I’d share the old ones here as well…

 

mars12

March last year – the first one I did..(playing with my lensbaby for this one)..

april12

April…taken outside our garden..

fb_may

May..haha…

juni

June - it’s of the Rhododendron in our garden.

juli12

Then there’s July, taken at the summer house…

august1august2

August – the first month I had two different ones…both taken at the same place which lovers of Tour de France will recognize…september1

Then came September…we’re still in Southern France…

september

I love this photo, it’s actually taken during an assignment for work…

oktober1

October…this is taken from DNS (The National Theatre here in Bergen), from a tour/play me and Amalie attended…this is the Sleeping Beauty. Ofcourse.

oktober2

Then I got nostalgic when visiting my dear grandma and flipping through her photoalbums..

november

November – I stuck to one header this month – taken from our Christmas card photos…

desember

Busy December had three different headers – this is Askøybrua, the bridge connecting the island I live at to the mainland.

desember3

At the annual torch march/Christmas march at school…

desember2

And finally, my usual Advent lights for December…made by ginger nut (gingerbread? ginger biscuits?).

 

Right…
