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. ♥


~~ Still good friends ~~

Posted by Ania On Sunday, March 13, 2011


So, this layout is based on Pencil-Lines sketch #228, guested by Aussie Tanya Tahir.

I used a mix of Toy Box and School Spirit and well, simply scraps lying on my desk..


For the big circle on the sketch I decided I wanted a heart, and cut one out from cardstock (just freehand-draw a heart before cutting it out. Or free-cut one). Then I layered the pieces on it, zigzaging as they went on. When the heart was covered I cut around the heartshape (slightly above the edge of the cardstock/base), sewed straight stitches around and distressed the edges.


Look at that doily! I found some at my local scrapbook-store the other day, and decided it was about time for me to jump on that bandwagon (only, I’m probably so late for it that it has gone already…huh?) Nevertheless. Old flowers from Prima, new buttons from Crate Paper, tags from Elle’s Studio



And the photos used on the layout? Taken with my iPhone (*loves*).


More iPhone-images:


This was taken inside AnneK’s truly cozy and inspiring store/workplace. I dropped by (with Marie, thanks for the company!) to purchase one of her “Mursteinsengler” (Brick-angels) for my nephew.

Each angel is unique, the only thing being in common are the eyes and the mouth. The project is called “Engler gir murstein” (Angels yields bricks”),  they’re all created from scraps, and the money goes to purchase bricks to build a childrens village called Garden of Eden in Kenya. One angel yields 40 bricks. I thought it was a nice gesture, and the angels are oh, so cute (I think I need to buy more). You can read more about the project here (in Norwegian), and also buy an angel or two through the blog as well. She plots where each angel will be given to on a big map aswell. Ofcourse she plotted in my nephew :) I hope he’ll like his angel :)


Added this one because I found this saying pretty cute: “Mommy look, it looks just like in Stormwind!” – quote my five year old, who loves playing WoW :) (Paraphrasing another quote: “Mom, I love my friends in the kindergarten, I love painting, I love playing games (WoW/PC-games), I love drawing, I love Adrian, I love watching cartoons, I love you and dad!”)


I’m sure I had a lot more to share, but my brain’s a mush atm and I think I’ll aim for an early night tonight too (which makes it – three early nights this week, hrm!). Am leaving for Oslo next week and have a number of things to wrap up/try to fix before then! Am oh, so looking forward to this trip!
