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. ♥


~~ Layouts of 2012 ~~

Posted by Ania On Monday, December 31, 2012

So. Last top10 edition for 2012. Layouts!


I adore the graphical stamps from Craft Origine. So pretty!


Also adore mixing mist splatters with liquid pearls and gems..


Tried a sort of colorblocking here. Sorta worked.


Think I love this one mostly because of the photo. Me & my grandma. Isn’t this the reason why we do this? Because of the photos and the memories they evoke?

Sidenote: Made a calendar as gift for my closest this year. (Every year I keep thinking I should use my photos as gifts, and 95% of the time I don’t…sigh..kinda silly..). Added this photo to one of the months for my March or something like that…so when she was flipping through the months, this was her initial reaction when seeing this photo:

_DSC0191-copyand then this:

_DSC0193-copy Love her reaction – weights up for my doubts about adding a photo of myself in the calendar..I’ve been better this year at putting me inside the frames once in a while..even though I (usually) dislike it.


Love this one because of the journaling…I actually added lots of journaling to a layout!


Loved the papers, slightly bummed I only got the 6x6” inch pad, but hey, it works doing layouts w/these too :p


Sort of like this one because the backgroundpaper (only 2nd time I’ve used this Back to School-collection from Pink Paislee, even though I love that collection) and two – love the lyrics (Maria Mena).


Lots and lots of snowflakes! yay! Plus, spot that very very very very old Heidi Swapp chipboard heart? Oh yeah…


Think I like this one because of the photo and the title…


And this one I love because of the fun papers & the photos :)


Conclusion when seeing my fave layouts: I prefer using one sheet of patterned paper as my background..preferrably one w/slight graphical background (one or twotone)..then just layer stuff behind my photos..I feel I usually do multiphoto-layouts (between two and four photos) – but apparently I’m also fond of single photo layouts…funny…


Ahwell…Happy New Year and stuff..I’m now ready to fill the blog w/new 2013-stuff!
