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. ♥


~~ Pink Paislee & Crate Paper ~~

Posted by Ania On Friday, November 12, 2010

I’ve been on a card-roll, creating some quite simple cards lately, using Pink Paislee … I love the Sweetness-collection, which’s pretty funny because when I saw the images of the collection I was like, ooh, that’s sweet, but probably too sugary sweet for me – I won’t be using these papers too much methinks….but actually,….I think it’s the collection I’ve scrapped the most with so far…*cough*


I’ve also created a card with the Father Christmas-collection:


This one was based on a sketch by Becky Fleck, for the Aussie Scrap Source sketch-contest. I snuck in a strip of “god jul” from 3ndypapir’s “Hilsen Gudrun” collection Smile


Love layering stuff on cards! Smile

Speaking of Pink Paislee, they have an exciting announcement on their blog atm if you love their products and would love to help showcase their stuff…



Wrapping this post w/this layout for Crate Paper – it’s not much to look at designwise, but it certainly has that vintage “scrapbook”-feel methinks, w/excerpts from ephemera and stuff..


I used mainly the School Spirit-collection here, along with cut outs from the local newspaper. The theme was something I was thankful for, and well, I worked at the local newspaper for about a year, an experience I’m very, very grateful for, especially as I still continue to freelance for them while working on my MA (it’s like – oh, they still want me to work for them, cool).


Gaining work experience is utterly valuable, and for someone who’s pretty much only been a student her whole life and still not sure what to really do when she “grows up” – it really felt good doing real work, being part of a stable work-environment and gaining positive feedback further cementing that “oy – looks like I can do that after all”.



Anyways, I figured that was an experience worth scrapping about, hm? Smile

(by the way, here’s the links to two of the recent photogalleries I did for the paper; Roots concert and Twirling-gathering..I also wrote the articles following the images, but they’re not available on the web)


Dinner calling, then I have a photosession tonight w/a dear friend and her family Smile


Ps. Check out this awesome discount at 30 % off all printed stuff this weekend only! I’m working my way through my piccies atm, I think they got ridiculously cute-sized cards….Smile
