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. ♥


~~ but she couldn’t find how to push through ~~

Posted by Ania On Friday, January 22, 2010

Currently omw to Oslo to attend a photography-workshop. One about the useage of studio-lightning and stuff. Would be handy to get some kind of basic knowledge I think :) Wish me luck :)

I’ve been scrapping too. But I can’t really share that layout right now (it’s for the next-next Pencil-Lines), but as it’s the first layout I scrapped with the new Pink Paislee-stuff so I’m like, dying to share. So I’ll share a peek I guess. *smirk*

Have I mentioned how I’m totally dying over the flip-notes and the ruffled organza-ribbon?? Yeah, well, I am. Schweet!

And – as this weekend marks the start of CHA (Craft & Hobby Association) I figured I’d share some of the fave new stuff “my” manufacturers are coming out with.

Pink Paislee:


Umm….tape (or rather – Artisan Tape)!!! Gorgeous Artisan Elements, made outta a (to me) new material – a combo of foam and resin. I’m incredibly curious as to how it actually looks and maybe more important, feels in real life.


And – I am loving loving loving all the new lines of theirs – loving the rich and colorful colors (hm, can you say that? Isn’t repeating oneself?) of the “365 degree” and “Bayberry Cottage” lines, and also maybe pretty surprising to myself – the amazing color-palette of “Queen Bee”. I dunno. It really doesn’t feel like “me”, yet I totally adore it. So sophisticated. So elegant. So gorgeous! Ahh…

If you head over to their blog I think you can still join the giveaways for all the new stuff :)

Fancy Pants Designs:


Of all the four new lines of Fancy Pants Designs, I’ve especially fallen in love with “Road Show”. It looks soft and mellow and lovely… but – knowing how things usually turn out I’ll probably be a more frequent user of either of the other lines – it’s always like that. I fall in love with certain collections but end up finding others more …uh..reachable. Sort of.

6a00d8341d658d53ef0120a7f29b23970b-800wiI have no real clue what this really is, but it sure sounds intriguing and promising! :D From the blog it says: “In this first release from our Artist Edition series: Super-sized metal frames, 12x12 Specialty Notebook, Unique Mixed Media Album and Innovative, Bulb Shaped Safety Pins!” :D (oh wait, I’ve seen the MM album one, it’s awesome – both the shape & materials it comes in :D)

There will also be a giveaway at the Fancy Pants blog sometime next week, when finished showcasing all the new stuff :)

Hambly Screenprints:


Umm. Hearts!!


I really love these patchwerk-rubons at first glance. Imagine all the fun and quick&easy cards you can create with these!! 6a00d83451dcff69e2012876fbb9ef970cOh yeah! More lace – more specific – lace-borders as rubons!! Bloody brilliant!! :D

Have an awesome weekend whether you’re going to CHA or doing other stuff. I sure hope I will (and if nothing else, I’ll get to see my fam & hopefully also nieces again :) ) :)

    Dang, det kommer sinnsykt mye stilig nå på CHA. Jeg var på PP-bloggen i går og så de rammene/bokstavene i hvitt og de så VELDIG spennende ut. Foreløpig det mest innovative fra årets CHA. Gratulerer som PP-designer, so cool! Ser ut som du har mange lekre produkter å glede deg til.

    Ligger noe til deg i bloggen min.
    Ha en flott uke!:D

Dandelion. Hey I need to think about that.
