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. ♥

I’ve been spamming personal photos lately, so this post will start off w/some scrappy stuff before sharing a few piccies ;)

binder_closed Yesterday was my turn to do a Fancy This-post over at the Fancy Pants blog. I created a notebook-binder from scratch.

DSC_7768 The above photo is a work-in-progress-photo – the almost finished binder before the decorations. This is the gorgeous Road Show-collection by the way.

Check out the FP post to see the full tutorial on how to make this notebook-binder all the way from scratch.

mormor For this weeks Pencil-Lines sketch (#187, guested by Jane Jones) I decided to whip out my 3ndypapir-stuff, mainly Secret Garden + some scraps from last years papers. The photos are brand new – my kiddo w/his great-grandma :)


Some extra embellishments – tulle & prima-stuff (the stitched heart-rubon is from Hambly).. mormor_cu2Aswell as American Crafts, Prima and Fancy Pants-stuff :)


Yesterday we celebrated the National Day of Norway. Didn’t get to take too many pictures, because as parent to a 3rd grader it was our turn to volunteer at the school which meant I was standing in the balloon-booth for a while being terrified kids would throw their darts the wrong way and hit me :p

Nevertheless, here’s three photos from yesterday (and none of me in my national dress Østfoldsbunad (I got the green variant ♥) ahwell – better luck next year :p).


Amalie inherited a dress from her cousin. A tad too small, but it was nice to have her wear it once :) (and yes, that’s the flag she’s holding in her left hand – upsidedown – oops! :p)DSC_9644

Adrian with his classmates (and Amalie, who didn’t want to walk w/her kindergarten-peers. She didn’t leave Adrians side for the whole parade). DSC_9653 They even held hands most of the walk. So cute – for as long as it lasts :)

    The note-book is lovely - can't work out if you have made this, or if it's the same one on the Fancy Pants blog - or if you made it for the Fancy Pants post!! Still, it's great.

    Love your Mormor sounds like a great afternoon (with yummy dessert!) The extra little embellishments - the tulle, the circle with cross-stitch, the panda (!) and the mixed brads at the top. It all fits together beautifully. I really like your scrapping style - very original.

    The National Day photos are great. Its lovely that you all still celebrate your national day and wear your national dress etc. We don't really do this any more, in Britain. I wish we did...
