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. ♥


~~ My very first ColorConspiracy-projects ~~

Posted by Ania On Monday, January 14, 2013

Soo…I mentioned in last post that I’m now part of the ColorConspiracy design team…and I’ve now played with their papers for real…love the subtle graphic patterns… most of them are my fave kind of patterned paper – monocromatic or duotones..I find such papers quite easy to use :)

And, since there’s CHA going on atm (you probably do not want to miss the sneak peeks & chances on giveaways on the Maya Road blog by the way) I usually drop by TwoPeas to join their CHA challenges…which I did this weekend as well, putting my ColorConspiracy papers to good use :)

First out is this layout of my lovely niece…


Love the cleaniness of this layout, if I may say so myself *smile*.

The challenge was to use five photos on one project… well, five photos – check :p


I find these photo-die cuts cute..comes in different colors…figured I’d use yellow here. Figured it needed a little extra dimension so I added this red brad from Pink Paislee :)


Love the clean, red letters too, by the way – I can’t recall the brand..Scenic Route mayhaps?


And this flair button from PaperPlay’s perfect here! Just the right hue of blue + added splash of red :)


And then I joined this challenge that’s about using seven kind of different patterned papers….figured it’d be a nice way to familiarize myself with ColorConspiracy’s papers ;)


Look, I even hand stitched that tag! Which by the way was dolled up by a Craft Origine-stamp, by the way. And the bright, yellow tulle flower is one of the new releases from Maya Road this CHA, by the way.


And although all the papers are double sided, I made sure to not cheat – I did use seven different patterned papers here.


The colors of these papers makes me happy :)


And here’s my presentation over at the ColorConspiracy blog :)



Random scrapping thoughts: Before I joined ColorConspiracy…I was asked…but you’re mainly a shabby chic-kind of scrapper…? Hum. I really don’t consider myself a shabby chic kind of scrapbooker..when I hear shabby/shabby chic I picture a totally different style than mine to be honest…and still… I’ve gotten these kind of comments before too, about my style.

I dunno..maybe it’s the projects that I create in that style that’s the most memorable? Personally I like to think my style depends on the papers and embellishments I’m using, and the theme..the same goes for what I picture will fit the recipient if it’s a card or altered gift.. most scrappers I know find it difficult explaining or deciding what ones style is…me included.. nevertheless…I haven’t really had that much graphic papers in my stash before, so I’m really excited to see how I’ll do with these papers…whether it’ll really be different from what people picture is “me”, or if it won’t matter..I’ll still create what others picture as shabby…? :)
