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. ♥

Sort of feeling like that.

Today I figured I’d share a box, a card, and a layout with ya…

Let’s do the layout first, shall we…


This one’s for Maya Road, as you might have guessed from all the Maya Road-ish embellishments used here…. the backgroundpaper’s from ColorConspiracy….they have so many patterns that’s perfect as backgroundpaper – one-ish color yet interesting..sort of…:)


One – love the doily clear stamps – yields such gorg, crisp (im?)prints every single time. Two – kraft butterfly? Yesthankyouplease. Three – see the “bed” of ribbon/fabric that the cluster is attached to? That’s the organza tea garden trim which’s discontinued methinks, so if you see it – grab it.


Added a lil paperribbonthingie from American Crafts (Dear Lizzie).


I’m not one for huge flowers, but that yellow flower (Satin Scallop Edge)? Lovesit.


Right. Over to the card..


Love the elegance transparencies automatically gives (borrows?) to cards when used like this, as an extra folder…The transparency & paper here’s from ColorConspiracy-


Twine and dangling embellishments from Maya Road..


Cluster put together from random bits & pieces from Pink Paislee, Hambly, Maya Road, Heidi Swapp (red chipboard heart!! loved those!) and Prima.


Yeap. Really like the feel the transparency lends to the card. I tried to dot the piece of tulle by the way, didn’t turn entirely the way I wanted, but ahwell…


Gold glitter ftw!


And finally….a chocolate box. Papers and die cuts from ColorConspiracy, kraft butterfly from Maya Road.


It’s a simple box. Just a thinking-of-you-get-well-chocolate-box for a coworker of mine.


It was quickly put together, and well appreciated.



Almost caught up.

Work’s been keeping me busy as usual, and right now I’m engaged in a project building up & readying the paper I work for, for a new system coming this Fall. Then I’m off to another weeklong course - my 2nd of this years four courses. Then, when I’m back, I should be back to my regular, writing work-self (been away from my regular work for half a week now and it’s I’m so, so itching to do some real writing…eeks….). Not that anybody cares, but ah well… :)

Look at me, I can stamp!

Sort of.

:) Just sharing a couple cards made w/Craft Origine-stamps…love the wood mounted stamps – yields such gorg, crisp impressions! (oh and notice – I’m finally getting rid of my box of Heidi Swapp ghost stars! :D)


This stamp was also used on the 1st card btw – just inked & cut out the 1st banner sort of :)


Babyphotocards must have this onesie transparency cut out from Hambly! Also, hidden behind that is a gem studded heart trinket from Prima.


Btw, ColorConspiracy is soon coming out with a new release – Texturize 2.0. Loved the first one, love this one as well :)

Hi. I’ve been scrapping. In between.

Here’s a layout for ColorCOnspiracy.. w/photos of my sister and nephew…


I like the new papers from ColorConspiracy…they come w/patterns on the bottom tag or whatever it’s called. Yields more possibilities for the papers methinks :)


ColorConspiracy has cute die cuts as well, as seen above and below..


And the clouds were made by using the star punch (Martha Stewart everywhere on the page one) first then cutting out the cloud (w/the Fiskars cloud punch).

Well. I thought that looked somewhat nifty..


Have schoolstuff and scrapbookingstuff to catch up w!
