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. ♥


~~ Homework ~~

Posted by Ania On Sunday, August 19, 2012


I don’t think I’ve been so thrilled about paper in a good while the same way as I have felt about the papers from I lowe scrap. I know. Chevron is everywhere. Still. Love the way they did this chevron paper! And they have so many amazing papers..I think their Xmas-collection is one of the coolest ones out there…  (and I am loving the b side here too…so so special….I so hate this about two sided patterned papers – when both are equally amazing..sigh…!)


I used sketch #171 from Skissedilla for this layout:


And used three different stamps from Craft Origine on this one (note to self: stamp first, add paint after…not the other way around). The one above is the stamp clic. Also, added a strip of notepapers from SODAlicious – another Polish manufacturer I really admire (I purchased SODAlicious paper + the ILS papers at their webshop).


Pulled the Hambly Screenprints transparency for this one….*love*

As well as finally got to use this Pink Paislee doodad…truly loved these….and truly did not want to use these at all, just save save save….but that’s like..hoarding…and I’m trying to quit that!! (haha right). Letters from Websters Pages. And if you look closer underneath the orange letters on the transparency….you can see the Dentelle 5 stamp embossed in white. homeworks4

The dark splatters are Earl Grey Maya Mist from Maya Road, white drops are white enamel accents from Rangers (I wish the liquid pearl would create such gorgeous, perfect drops like the enamel do every.single.time.)… Gem from KaiserCraft (I consider this red colored gem a must have for any stash). The paint threads are distress crackle paint…I tried mixing some of the acrylic paint I have here with mist to create paint that would do such “thread” paint prettily like the crackle paint, to no avail…sigh…must buy more crackle paint I suppose, unless you know of the perfect paint that’ll allow for easy “threading” or whatever you call this??? All mine are too thick :/ ANyways… wooden star from Prima Marketing, brad from Crate Paper and I adore this geometrical stamp from Craft Origine – one of my faves – Dentelle 6.


See the numbers on top? I’ve had this little, cheap stamproller from Glitz for like, forever…can’t believe I haven’t opened & used it until’s so, so cool! And if you look at the papers, the chevron one is resting upon a sheet of turquiose-green paper from Crate Paper. Right. Wooden button from American Crafts, lovely glazed brad from – I’m almost positive – Basic Grey.

And the layout? Well..the kiddo has his way of sitting when doing homework…or watching tv,..or anything that involves sitting actually. Silly kid.
