I was challenged on MN by Vibeke
She asked me to scraplift this layout by Xstine:

So this is what I made. If you click on the uploaded image, you will see a bigger version.

I've used a lot of bright pattern paper:
Junkitz, Pop culture, Fancy Pants felt, staples, Prima, bling, QK minitag etc.

New header!

Made a new header today. Got a bit tired of the old one, and I also had a misspelling of the word scrappeblog ;).

Well, I've done some shopping as well. Got in the mail yesterday. But my husbands taken the camera again, so I'll have to wait to put photos of my shopping here.

I need some more floss (tread). Think I'll have to shop some more on the internet. :)

My husbands taken our son with him to Fredrikstad. The'll stay there until tomorrow. So I'll be scrapbooking and relaxing all day! Having av good friend to visit me soon. She's coming now any minute. Had to feed here little baby first, and her husbands will drive them here.
Hope you all enjoy your weekend.

In one week we're off to Crete! :-D 2 weeks on a nice apartement hotel, by the beach/sea. It's going to be very nice!

This card I made tonight for a friend of my husbands. He's celebrating his 30th birthday tomorrow, with a big barbecue-party. I've been invited, but I need some time for myself. So I'll stay at home and scrapbook instead! Yeah! Looking forward to that.
I've used: pattern paper: Prima, Inkadinkado clearstamps (party-ticket), buttons, hamptread, thickers and I used my sewingmachine without tread.


{Et Lite Ord} #2 - Endelig/Finally

Denne er laget til en utfordring på ScrappeMania. Et lite ord: Endelig/Finally. Jeg valgte å lage en layout der jeg forteller historien om hvordan det var å bli mamma for første gang. Historien er skrevet ned i tag'n som er brettet. Jeg har videre brukt Prima blomster, knapper, bling, stempel fra Papirloftet, rubons fra Bo Bunny, distress crackle paint (rosa), lyseblå akrylmaling og bobleplast, floss og mønsterark fra Kaiserkraft.

Home sweet home!

Yes, finally home again! Oh, I've my husband, and I've missed scrapbooking! So good to be back. Came back to our apartment at 3 a.m. so I was tired. So was Peder. He'd only slept one hour at the trip back home. When he fell alseep, he was so tired, and only got 1 hour and 15 minutes of sleep before we landed and I had to wake him up.

Started a new project today. Made a little book with my Zutter Bind-It-All. Going to send it (or deliever) to Peders grandparents (my husbands parents). I'm not finished yet, though.
They adore little Peder, but unfortunately they're quite old, and mye father in law can't manage the trip over here. So useually we go to the west coast to visit them.

Going to do some scrapbooking now. My husbands watching telly (fotball European Campionship). It's the semifinals now. Today: Turkey and Germany.

Hope you all have a nice evening!

Going home tomorrow!

Well! This is my last evening here. It's Midsummers Night. Here in Spain they celebrate with a big bonfire, and fireworks. But my son was sooo tired at 10 pm that I had to bring him home. He fell asleep when he was put in his bed, just 6 minutes ago. We went out with my parents, my nephew and some friends of my parents. I ate paella, it was quite good. Peder was playing with his train (BRIO) that he loves to play with.

The bus will leave for the airport tomorrow at 6.20 in the afternoon, my dad will take us to the bus stop not very far away from here.

I miss my husband very much, and miss my scrapbooking - it will be good to get home.

Hope you all have a nice evening!

Enjoying the sun!

Bilder fra Peder og min sin tur i dag! :) Vi var på stranden, og på McDonalds sammen. Koste oss masse. Peder fikk sikkert verdens største grønne eple!!!

Layout! {4ever love}

This was made yesterday, right before leaving for the airport, got some hours before leaving.
I've made this with a photo of my parents, and matted it on thick cardstock/chipboard. So they can put it on the wall if they want to.


Everything under the sun!

Bussen opp til Gardermoen i går. Trøtt, ikke sovet noe i barnehagen. Sov ca 30 min på flybussen...

I bassenget i dag:

Gøy!!! :)

Bind-It-All Projects!

This was the first project I made yesterday. With my name on it. I thought I'd use it on my holiday, writing down things that happens, and maybe some good ideas. Well, we'll see!

This little one was also made yesterday. Inside I'll just put photos of people I love, like my family, extended family and so on.
The good thing about the machine is that one can use leftover scraps, I have a lot of pattern paper and other cardstock in a big pile (box) here. The pattern paper on this last little book was made with some leftover scraps. And a new QK tag. I've wanted this QK for a long time, seen it on others LO and projects, it's so nice. Don't you think!

Almost there!....

... supposed to be in Spain now, but unfortunately we're not! Sterling (airlines) messed things up, well that's what I think! They did'nt change gate, the lady told, me, but still, the gate closed, the plane took off without us! Do you believe us, I said. We sat there all the time, waiting for boarding. And the luggage, well it's all in Spain!

Thank God, she gave me new tickets for this afternoon flight, no charge! I think that's the least she would do for us. I was totally devastated when I looked at the list and it said: "gate closed". I still don't understand how everyone else got to the airplane. Because the gate was the same all the time.

So hopefully we'll get there tonight. One day late, and one day less in the sun. But shit! I am happy I'm going anywere.

The good thing, is that I got the chance to try my Bind-It-All Machine last evening. Fun! Think I'll make some new projects with it when I return from my vacation. After a couple mistakes, I found out how to use it - and it's sooo easy. I think it's the best machine ever, almost, 'cause my Cuttlebug is the best!!

This is from the bustrip to the airport yesterday. Eating a big green apple. One of his favorites these days! He's so cute eating apples!

Tuesday, June 17, 2008


So! Today I'm leaving Norway for one week with my son. We're going away for a holiday in the sun! (hopefully) The destination is Spain, Costa Blanca. We're visiting my parents and my nephew. They have a house there, with a big pool. Think both Peder and I will enjoy ourselves. Too bad my husband can't come, but he doesn't have the opportunity to leave work.

I'll bringing my laptop with me, so you'll probably get some updates from me. But I'm not bringing any scrapbooking stuff with me.

Hope you all have a nice day!

Min! (Mine!)

This layout was made for a competition (scraplift) on MN, thanks for the votes! I didn't win this time, but that was totally okay, the winning layout was beautiful by the way.

I did some sewing by hand on this layout, I normally't don't do that. The photo is of my son in the park, playing with a small ball. Holding on to it! Hard! The title is in English: Mine! That's your favorite word these days.

Details (I've used a coca cola item, it says: I'm the boss!):

More details:

Shopping - in love with my Mastercard!

I've goon completely mad with my Mastercard, and has also received my paycheck for June, so things are quite nice :).

Some days ago I ordered a lot of things at Papir I Hjertet. They were sold out for the Bind-It-All Machine, but I ordered other things. Last evening I ordered the Zutter Bind-It-All Machine from Papirloftet, I hope they're not sold out...
I'm really looking forward to using it. Also ordered som glimmer mist :)

The things will probably come in my mail box this upcoming week, so I've asked my husband to go pick it up at the postoffice for me. :)

Hope you all have a nice weekend! Think I have some sleep now. My son's having his nap now.

Raining outside!

wow! After over 1 1/2 or 2 weeks of beautiful weather, today the rain came to town! Beautiful! So good for mother Earth :)

Not so fun for my son, because he want's out to play, and we forgot the clothes for playing outside in daycare. :)

My husband was at a bachelor party yesterday, had quite a lot of fun. My cousins getting married in August this year. He's getting married to a nice sweet girl from Lebanon. Think this family need a sparkle, huh!

Well, have not been scrapbooking a lot this weekend. Too tired. Started with the scraplift on MN, and hope to finish today. Then I'll probably only do a few things before leaving for my holiday on Tuesday. Looking forward to one week away with my son. And think my husband will enjoy some peace and quiet for a week also.
I have to get the suitcase for the trip later. I have to start packing! :)

New layout!

This is one of the first photos of my son. The tag tucked behind the photo bescribes the story of his birth. He was taken right out of my belly (sectio)!
I made this one with white cardstock. I normally use blue (baby blue), but I think this was nice? Quite pure, and simple. The arrow is from Vibeke! Thanks for all the stuff you gave me, Vibeke!

{Gjestedesigner} #1 - utfordret av Xstine - ScrappeMania

Her er mitt lille bidrag til utfordringen til Xstine som hun laget til ScrappeMania. Jeg slet virkelig med å finne et fremkalt bilde av meg selv, ja, faktisk bilde av meg selv i det hele tatt! Jeg blir ikke fotografert ofte, lenger. Dette bildet er tatt nyttårsaften i fjor, og viser vel egentlig at mannen min fremdeles liker å ta bilder av meg. Vi hadde besøk av et vennepar til middag (som har ei tulle på ca 18 måneder). :)

Jeg har brukt Distress maling (crackle paint) på overskriften, flourishen (i chipboard) og ticket'en. Takk for flott utfordring! Gøy! Hadde litt problemer med å "pynte" denne, synes mønsterarket var litt pynt i seg selv :). Siden det er rosa med oransje prikker på! På ticket'en står det hva jeg elsker mest, og det er i ikke-prioritert rekkefølge: scrapbooking, være mamma og å være 'kone'.

New layout!

This was originally made for a contest on MN, but I was not satisfied with the result, so I did not hand it in. The reason I wasn't satisfied is that it looks too messy, with colors in the photos and the pattern paper. The pattern paper is from Basic Grey (Cupcake), and so is the sticker (Happy Birthday) too.


New card!

I made this card for one of the employees in my sons daycare (kindergarden). She's starting to work in another daycare in August. I'm going to buy her som flowers also. The title is: thank you (takk)!

Skissekonkurransen uke 22

This was my contribution to the contest on Mammanett last week. Thanks for all the votes!

Jeg er blitt tagget!

"Plukk opp nærmeste bok, og åpne på side 123. Finn den femte setningen og publiser de følgende tre setningene. Tagg fem personer og skriv hvem som tagget deg"

Vibeke har tagget meg.

Her er boken som jeg kjøpte for noen få uker siden. Jeg leste Drageløperen av Khaled Hosseini i februar, og boken var bare utrolig bra! Så kjøpte jeg "A Thousand Splendid Suns". Den har jeg såvidt fått begynt på.
"He's been gone for a week." "Oh." Mammy sighed through her nose. "Did you wash?"

Her kommer 5 personer som jeg synes er flotte scrappere:
Sikkert litt kjedelig at hun blir tagget tilbake, men jeg synes nå hun er en veldig flink scrapper. Og såpass fersk at hun kan utvikle seg til å bli enda bedre! Mange fine og veldig annerledes LO'r. Vet ikke om hun lager mye kort, men det kan hun fint gjøre! ;)

Anne Bente

Anne Bente er også aktiv i andre sammenhenger, bl.a. Scrapbookexpress. Hun lager utrolig mye fint! Og er veldig søt og titter innom i bloggene og legger igjen beskjeder.

Heidi har jeg sett mange av arbeidene til på andre forum, og jeg synes hun er kjempeflink. Hun har den siste tiden vært en aktiv blog'r med mange jern i ilden. Likevel! En flott jente, med mange inspirasjons-LO'r for min del. Håper dere titter innom blog'n hennes og ser. Hun er også et medlem av ScrappeMania. Titt innom der og.

Siv Anita
Også kalt Taratroll er en kjempeflink scrapper. Hun har en kjempesøt jente som er et flott motiv i LO'ene. Titt innom og se!

og til sist, men ikke minst:
Cathrine Angelica
Lager utrolig mye fint! Jeg er imponert over hva hun finner på! Flink til å scrappe annet enn bare barn også. Også hun er ganske fersk scrapper.

Love you always {winning the scraplift competition on MN}

With this layout I won (for the first time!) the weeks competition on MN (scraplift). Thank you for your votes! I was quite pleased with this layout. Liked the photo very much. I really don't remember how old Peder is on the photo, but he's not many weeks old. One of my favorite photos of him, sleeping. Think that somethings wrong with the scanning of this layout, looks better IRL. ;)

Details (notice I've used a tag from a clothing company called Exit - the label is name it):
