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. ♥


~~ So, to recap.. ~~

Remember this layout I made for PiHs sketch-contest? :)
Well, it appears that I was one of the winners – yay! :)

I hosted the Thursday Trends post over at the Pink Paislee-blog on Thursday (duh). Here’s my take on one of todays trends in scrapbooking:

DSC_6647 Aligning your elements very close to (usually just) one end – at the edges.
Have to admit I wasn’t entirely comfortable with that, so I tried to balance the small photos at the bottom corner with the larger photo. You can read more about my thoughts re the trend and this over layout here.


Pink Paislee products used: 365 degrees - papers, Flip Notes Jorunal Pad, Ribbon Pleats and Bella Brads. Letters: Expressions Glitter Alphabets.
Other: Black acrylic paint, glimmer mist (jazz blue), kraft cardstock, fiskars borderpunch and sewing machine.

Am attending an ongoing contest over at my local scrapbook-forum, Minneriket. It’s based on Eurovision, a ridiculously huge song-contest which’s somewhat popular in Europe. It’s like, kitschy, and everybody has an opinion about it either way. Anyways. We’re grouped in different countries, and my team picked Great Britain =) Our first challenge was to scrap a layout in our country's’ colors. Here’s my layout:

DSC_6656I used white cardstock, patterned papers from Pink Paislee, glimmer mist, gems from Prima and letters from Luxe Designs and Adornit.

I also haven’t shared my last Pencil-Lines layout. We were sponsored by American Crafts, and Elizabeth Kartcher created the sketch we used. Loved the sketch, truly – but scrapping it? Uh, I had to redo the layout three times – ugh – scrapping most of the original materials I was scrapping with. Good thing I had a good deal AC stuff on my own! And even by the end I removed two of the silly, yellow circles…I dunno..I really love AC stuff, but I rarely feel happy about the end-results….. ohwell… here it is nevertheless..

DSC_6679 You can see the difference between the old/new layout – as the closeups shows the yellow circles I now removed from the layout (see above)



Have a lovely weekend! :)
