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. ♥


~~ Lazy Sunday ~~

Posted by Ania On Sunday, January 23, 2011

Compared to yesterday, today’ll be a lazy Sunday. I’ll just edit some images and write an article or two if I’m effective (but hey, who are we kidding?).


In the meanwhile, here’s my contribution to the “Grey is the new black” challenge over at Moxie Fab. I’ll admit, I don’t have many (if any) grey papers in my stash, and I don’t stamp nor use cardstock much, so what to do? Pull out the Pink Paislee “Parisian Anthology”-collection and paint it lightly with Graphite glimmermist so it’ll turn a gorgeous, uneven grey hue and slap this fabric flower, also from the same line, on it, duh. Ta-dah, or something like that.


And then we have this little trio of gifts, also created with Pink Paislee – this time with the “Starlight”-collection. It’s a box of chocolate, a CD-envelope and a miniwrap. Read what the chocolate box is saying? box_open

This is what it reads when you open it (I love to think I’m so clever Smile with tongue out).

This is my contribution to Sukkersøtt, a Norwegian challenge-blog which’s atm is about decorating chocolate-boxes Smile.


Speaking of Pink Paislee, have you seen what they are coming out with this CHA? Their peeks starts this coming week, but from what I have seen on their web and from the House of 3 and Tattered Angels collaboration - I’m so so so bummed I’m not on their team anymore, because this stuff will certainly ruin me when it’s out in the stores!!! *soft sigh*


And then you have Crate Paper, which I’m so relieved I’m on the team for because.. look at these two last peeks! And check out their blog for the full reveals, the samples from the team are simply amazing! Here they all are..:



I believe Portrait will be my total fave (but I’ve been wrong before)…



Emma’s Shoppe will most surely become the 2nd fave (it’s girlie but not too girliepinkpink, and with darling patterns and colorpalettes).


And Neighborhood looks so sweet and mellow :)



And toy box, the dark horse which, after having seen the full collection on the Crate blog, will most surely be used a lot in this home!


To see the full collections AND have a chance to win them yourselves, head over here for Portrait and Neighbourhood and here for Emma’s Shoppe and Toy Box!

Have a lovely Sunday Smile
