Some Miami Heat for a Buffalo Bill



It might seem like I’ve become obsessed with cards and Pink Paislee lately. For week two of the PageMaps challenges over at the Aussie Scrap Source-blog, I only managed to sneak in this card created w/a mix of the Sweetness and Parisan Anthology collections.


This is the sketch by the way – for the squares I just sewed the pattern on.


Love this clustered mix – all pretty much from the lovely Parisan Anthology-collection (ribbon, paperbits and bling) mixed w/ornaments and a sweetness-badge.


This is how it looks inside by the way.


I don’t create cards only. I scrap layouts too. Like these photos from one of the Toy Story-movies we watched in 3d earlier this fall (we got to watch all 1,2 and ofcourse 3 movies in 3d. At least the kids & hubby did, I actually only joined for 1)

I used Crate Paper’s School Spirit for this one.


I totally forgot to save the tickets from the theatre (don’t you hate it when stuff is like, floating all over and messing up and like, everywhere when you don’t need them, yet when it’s time to actually USE them they’re mysteriously…gone….I found these in the newly washed pants…).

Nevertheless….I remember when a ticket cost 45 NOK when I was young (bit unsure if I do recall or just think it must have been 40nok before that). These days it cost between 90-100 NOK, so figured it’d be fun to document that bit of info too.


I love the dimensional chipboards from Crate Paper, and I figured it’d be especially perfect on a page about 3d Smile

Huh. Look at that. A smiley. As a graphical icon. Do you see it?
(I’m using Windows Live Writer for most of my blogposts, and it recently got upgraded..apparently the upgrade means icons are now available).

Smile with tongue outSmileWinking smile Open-mouthed smile
Hm. I don’t know if I like them or not. I think I prefer the plain txt-versions, not the icons – it sort of doesn’t fit into a blogpost. Or does it? Hm!

Arsenic *fnis* De gamle er eldst sier bare jeg og så legger jeg den saken der død tenker jeg; før du blir FOR lei ;P Knallkul layout og Yey for rom på rommet!!

Så kul. Digget den revne kanten rundt.
Gøy med rom på rommet, skal vi ta en reprise i slutten av november eller? *knis*

Ja, nå er jeg blitt eldre (aka klokere) og! Smile with tongue out

skalbare You know, the Hocus Pocus line from Pink Paislee, which’s Halloween-themed, aren’t for Halloween-only (just check out Danielle’s gorgeous Christmas-cards!). It’s also good for when creating reminders about why too much of certain things might not be too good for oneself. Just sayin’

Feel free to check out my Pink Paislee-post to check out the sketch this was based on (from Pagemaps :) ).


Love the clear cards – had a leftover I decided to use here :p skalbare_cu2

It’s been a while since I did a this distressed layout :) skalbare_cu3

Also got to use some leftover-rubons, from the Bayberry-collection :) skalbare_cu4

More skulls… skalbare_cu5 Huh. I think I’m seeing a theme here. *cough*

Åh - du lager altså så utrolig lekre og kule ting!! Alltid! Jeg digger den border-punchen - den var helt utrolig kul! Men er det enkelt å få det så fint i hjørnene?? Og så var det danse-sjelettet kult! Sånt vil jeg ha!:o)

Oh yeah – love the double loop-punch from Martha Stewart. It’s easier than I thought to do a smooth punch around the corners, although I sometimes cut too much from one side – but it doesn’t seem to be that noticeable when I do.

Eli Said,

Hihi - jeg utfordrer deg til å komme innom her en dag og prøve. Tøffa! ;)

wow, wish i had your energy, and craftiness, lots of projects and all super cute!!!

I don’t really feel like having lots of energy, but thanks anyways :)


This week shapes up to low level of scrappiness due to some school- & workrelated stuff (and the looming cold/flu lurking around me trying to trap me), but I’ll be back with a vengeance this weekend. I hope :)


Oh, edited to add – forgot to mention this, duh!1

This fall had been so good to me and my engagement couples! The light, colors and temperature have all cooperated so nicely!

Mollie and Matt and I sandwiched this super colorful engagement session between two extremely scattered downpours. I can't wait to photograph their spring wedding in Door County!

Onin's a very good friend and office-mate who always had my back when we worked together for an IT/design firm. We were just so happy to hear he's tying the knot with his long time best friend Lyn who I also had the pleasure of meeting back then.

Just when people may think we've done as much we could do with our concept-driven SDEs, we specially did a slightly different editing/shooting method for this video. After all, we still have a few tricks up our sleeve for other upcoming weddings and willing couples to experiment concepts with. Happy viewing!



It was a hot and sunny day at Whiterock but everything was welcome during the rainy season when sunshine is a rarity. Here are our fave images from King and Dea's beach wedding.
