a few childhood memories scrapped

2009-11-01T16:20:57.370+01:00

I've been scrapping a few childhood memories for Ali Edwards class Today & Tomorrow at Big Picture Scrapbooking. I love the class, even though I haven't had time to do all the challenges in the appropriate weeks. I'll do it in my own pace, though, a little bit here and a little bit there. The biggest challenge is to get a some of the photos from my childhood scanned in at mom's house. I knew of a few she have - and I'm hoping to find a few others that I can use. Looking forward to get my hands on those, but so far I've been doing a bit of catching up on week 3 - and gathered a few childhood memories. I plan on adding a second page to each of these with photos that goes with the stories.my random childhood memories vol. 1credits: template by Ali Edwards; alpha by Sahlin Studio; papers from Every Life Has A Story Chapter 3 by The Digi Chick collab; staples and brads from 365-series (March and February) by Crystal Wilkersonmy random childhood memories vol. 2credits: template by Ali Edwards; alpha and elements by Sahlin Studio; papers from Life's a Beach by Sahlin Studio; background paper and stitches from Any Given Day by CreashensI'm using my first language on these ones (Norwegian), here is a few words about the content: 1. how my grandmother read the same book for us every time we came to visit 2. about my grandma's bread and 3. how the smell of dirt reminds me of picking potatoes 4. how my mom decorated the house at Christmas 5. about a solo song I did as a kid 6. about play mates only I could see.Here is the words as I wrote them:1. HAKKEBAKKESKOGENKvar gong me sov over hos mormor leste ho eit eller fleire kapittler i boka Hakkebakkeskogen. Dette gjekk over fleire år og det var like kjekt kvar gong, sjølv om me til slutt kunne nesten heile boka utanatt. Eg hugsar eg og bror min låg over i huset deira ei sommarnatt, det var uver og tora slo hardt mellom fjella. Me var nok litt redde og det var ikkje lett å finne roa, men mormor visste råd – ho fann fram boka og me sang og leste til veret stilna og augo vart smale. Når eg nå ser boka i bokhylla mi, kan eg ikkje anna enn smile. Gode minne og takksemd fyller tankane.2. BRØDET TIL BESTAEg voks opp på ein gard med Besta og Bestefar som næraste nabo. Det var ikkje reint sjeldan at eg stakk innom dei for ein liten prat – og kanskje for ei brødskive også om det var rette tida på dagen. Besta laga det beste brødet og det var moro å vere med henne og blande deigen, elte han og legge deig-brøda over på steikebrettet. Skulle ønske at eg hadde skrive ned korleis ho laga det, kunne tenke meg litt besta-brød smak nå også.3. LUKT AV JORDLukta av jord får meg til å tenke på alle vår og haust dagar (eller kveldar) som vart bruka til poteter da eg var lita. Det var mykje strev i det å få potetene ned i jorda på vårparten og så opp att midt på hausten. Eg kan ennå kjenne korleis lukta av rå, svart jord fylte nasebora då eg sto bøgd over åkaren, med handa retta ut for å plukke opp nokre nye poteter. Og sjølv om eg skrubba henda flittig, var det ennå svarte rendar att etter ein lang dag i potetåkeren - og ei svak lukt av jord følgde med oss så lenge potetopptakingsdagane varte. Men sjølv om det var slitsamt var det også veldig kjekt - heile familien var igang med arbeidet og ofte kom det også andre innom for å hjelpe oss ein dag eller to. Det var eit godt fellesskap, godt å vere mange ute på åkeren å rope til eller le saman med om ei lita potet susa mot ein uvitandes bakende.... Mamma laga alltid god meddag desse dagane og det var ekstra koseleg å setje seg til bords og delta i praten før me igjen måtte ut og finne poteter - store, middels og små.4. JULEHUSETKvar jul så lenge eg kan hugse har mamma pynta huset til trengsel. Det er ei kule, ein snømann, ein engel eller ein nisse i kvar ei kro. Jula var for oss i familien ei tid for glede og feiring. Det var ei tid da det meste gjekk greitt, da me som barn fekk gjere meir som me ville enn nokon annan gong gjennom året. Det v[...]



speed scrap anyone!?

2009-10-28T19:53:01.484+01:00

Do you love Speed Scraps?? I do - and I know a whole bunch of others do too. Cara of Sweet Tomato designs is hosting a fun speed scrap tonight at 9 pm EST:

(image)




















Got to love getting a page finished in a couple of hours - and being able to participate in it together with other scrappers and have some fun as well :) I really wish I could join in on this one - but it's far to early in the morning for me (like 3 or 4 am my time) and I have to work tomorrow, so no sleeping in.

Have some fun for me will ya?!!!! ;)



Spooks - LO's and a blog train

2009-10-27T21:32:23.516+01:00

I've been doing a bit of scrapping lately - but sadly not much blogging (at least not here). But now I'm back to show you what I did with Spooks, the new kit from Sweet Tomato designs.If you want some freebies I also have links to a blog train at the bottom of this post. Yay! And this week the kit is 25% off at both Pretty Scrappy and Designs in Digital - go grab some godies for Halloween ;)Since I live in Norway we don't celebrate Halloween that much, so I based my LO on my thoughts about the season instead of showing what we (don't) do...Anyway, here it is - I can't tell you how much I love the colors Cara used in this kit - and that spider is just too cute:credits: template by me (lime); papers and elements from Spooks by Sweet Tomato designsjournal: I have never carved a pumpkin...Growing up in Norway in the 70th (and 80th), I didn’t know much about the tradition and celebrations of Halloween. It was first in my teens that I started to learn a few things about it, mostly from watching American sit Com's and dramas on TV. I didn’t pay much attention to it, though, the series mostly aired on the wrong time of the year anyway. So most years the fall went by without much thoughts about the season celebrated in other countries. Our stores wasn't filled with pumpkin and scary crows to remind me about it either. Now I know more about the day and how it is celebrated, I also know a bit about the days origin. It's still not a part of my years of celebration, but now we can find scary masks and plastic pumpkin in stores here as well.Lately I’ve seen Halloween emerge as a celebrated day in our country as well, even small and mostly among the young school kids. I know my kid have started to pick up on it; there might be some trick or treating coming from him in a few years (and a question for some fun and scary costumes). I guess it’s manly the commercial side of it all, that is the background for the emerge of new traditions here. I’m not sure I like that very much; If you asked me I’d rather have Thanksgiving. We live in one of the worlds riches countries, we should set of one day of the year to give thanks and to acknowledge the gift of living in a safe country.I've registered that there are some different opinions among the churches wheter to celebrate this day or not; knowing a bit about the history I understand why even though I haven't given it much thought myself since this isn't much celebrated here. That being said there isn’t just bad associated with the season; I love the colors, the candy and the overall fun and happy thing about it. And if anyone where to come visiting us on the last day of October, I surely would go in search of any kind of candy or sweets to give them :D I also made a more spooky LO with MT and his grandpa:credits: template by Janet Phillips (moderated); elements and papers from Spooks by Sweet Tomato designsjournal: September evenings are dark and never long enough. My dad usually works on the field till he can't distinguish the grains from the grass – and then he have a few many things to take care off ion the farm; in the darkness. MT helped him hold the light one of these fall nights- and he had so much fun making scary faces and spooking around with the flash light. Safe in the darkness, with his Grandpa right by his side. As you can see - I had some fun making these!!Now, are you ready for some blog hopping?! The train are already set in motion and here are the stations. Behind all of these links are a freebie from one of my talented friends of the Sweet Tomato designs CT-team and we're starting with Cara the Sweet Tomato herself:Sweet Tomato DesignsMicheleFleurSherryJanetAimeeGlendaHappy hunting :D[...]



I'm a new CT for Sweet Tomato Designs :)

2009-10-03T12:50:34.889+02:00

Cara of Sweet Tomato Designs have given me a place on her CT team. I'm so happy and can't wait to start creating with her designs. As a CT for Pretty Scrappy (the store) I've already scrapped with two her kits, the Darjeeling Kit and Autumn Bliss

(image) (image)

I love her deep, rich colors; the yellow in both of these kits are making me feel light and warm :D This is what I have made before (click images for credits and journaling):

(image)

(image)

And this one I made yesterday (with an old photo I've been waiting to scrap forever):

(image)

I only wish I knew when this photo was captured, but the cell phone ¨photo file doesn't tell me that. My guess is 2-3 or something years ago. I know for a fact that it's taken when we lived in the western part of Norway, but that is all (at least for now). :)

¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨
We got our first snow of the season today. I was planning moving to our new house, but I'm not driving on snowy roads with my summer tires - so now I'm blogging instead :D

Better go and pack a few more boxes, this snow is bound to go away in a few hours and then we'll see if we are in the mood for moving like planned - or if we rather stay here a little bit more (having fun surfing on our broad band, hehe). In that case we are going to the store because we are out of a few essentials...... Anyhow, see you around!!

this scrapbooking thing

2009-09-18T08:37:25.821+02:00

A year and some months ago I downloaded PSE (photoshop elements) determent to find out if doing digital scrapbooking was as fun as Valerie told me it was. And, man, was it ever. I've been making a lot of layouts over these months and have had so much fun. my two very first LO's, to the left a quick page - to the right using a template. click image for credits!Lately I've also started making cards and gifts as well; what most scrap bookers call hybrid scrapping. And that has been more fun and giving (and time consuming) than I ever thought possible.click images for creditsThis week I received my new 8x8 albums in the mail and I've started to print out some of the layouts I did last fall to put into them; one album for us, one for places and one for family & friends. I'm so happy for the memories I have preserved (some I have forgot ever making). I'm learning new stuff about PSE every month and many of the older layouts make that clear with their lack proper shadowing and other things I didn't know how to do back then. A few of them are really not my best work (to put it mildly), but I have decided to keep them as they are (more or less - I'm adding a bit of shadow on most and removing some of the more heavy shadows on a few). The layouts themselves tell a story about my way as a scrapper and I want to keep that intact too.I'm now, sadly, out of photo paper - but can't wait to print out the rest of it!!mini albums to my favorite twins :DRight now I'm also working on a few gift for some very special girls (have been working on and off on this for the last month took me some time to get the rings and things for them....), I'm now ALMOST finished and I'm so happy with how they turned out. Hoping the girls will love them too!!I'm going to bed now, only have one more mini album shot more to show you; the dangling one ;) Loving this one! And, by the way, all photos are SOOC (straight out of camera). I usually only edit photos when I'm going to use them in a layout or print them or make gifts...... I used a hight set ISO and lots of ugly indoor lights to capture these beauties :pLooooving the view of all the papers; some thin, some thick (the thick one have images on both sides).....................................................................................................................................................................The above is a cross post from limeblog.net - so sorry for not updating the last month (and a half!!), I've been busy thought, with both regular scrapbooking and hybrid stuff.Hope to see you soon!![...]



some pretty scrappy stuff ;)

2009-08-03T12:28:58.603+02:00

My creative work had to be set away for a couple days this week. My real life needed some attention there for a while since my Grandma died Wednesday night . It's sad and I will miss her terribly, but it's also what was expected since she was 98.5 years old and we already had her with us on over-time (or how to put it). I'm so thankful for all the years we had her with us.Anyhow, last night I finished up my assignment for July at Pretty Scrappy and got started on some for August as well ;)#3 LO for July:A double paged faith scrap.I used the fun and funky Sunset Funk from Inkin' Creation for this one. I love the colors in this kit and that gorgeous see-through sun ;)Here is my double paged go (the individual sides are below the credits):credits: template by Ali Edwards; papers and elements from Sunset Funk by Inkin' Creations; strawberry from Strawberry Hill by Studio Ellie; camera stamp from Photogenic by Paislee Pressscripture (Ecclesiastes 3:9-13) :What do people really get for all their hard work? I have seen the burden God has placed on us all. Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can. And people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God.Left side:Right side:Color Challenge in August:This month's challenge is posted in the forum.

christmas in july...

2009-07-27T23:13:09.546+02:00

The Daily Digi got me do it!!

I'm not one for being early when it comes to preparing for December and Christmas. Late November usually suits me just fine.

That was before this post and this image:

(image)
Isn't it just beautiful!! (creation and image by Janet Phillips - the daily digi)

It got me wanting to make something gorgeous for our first upcoming Advent- and Christmas time in the old pastor house (yep, moving there this fall).

To be honest I've wanted to do one of these ever since I first saw the idea of December Daily at Ali's blog last year. So in December 2008 I took a lot of photos and even wrote a journal (where is that anyway?!?!), my plan was to make the pages digital and then print them all as a photo book. But I never came around to actually making it...... (and then my computer got hungry and ate all my photos...or rather he got sick with a virus).

But no shame in trying again! And this year I'm eager to make my own album. I've never done that before, but why not?!?!

I downloaded Janet's bracket shape and made a few shapes of my own to make the album a mix max of different shapes and possibilities. I clipped on papers from "Have A Jolly Holiday" collection by Gina Marie Huff and printed them out at home. Tonight I plan on cutting out the rest of the shapes and bind the pages together with a lace or something (have to go to a hobby store to get rings to bind it; no one of those around so I'll do that later).

(image)

These are a few of the pages I've got printet; together with gold cardboard card stock they are making up my fundation for the december daily 2009 album. I'll add photos and journaling cards as I see fit when I get to the actually days. The goal is to make the album as we go so I don't have to make 25 pages at Boxing Day!! Whis me luck ;)

This is me hoping to actually get an album filled with photos and words (and those gorgeous doodles by Gina) by New Years. I'll keep you posted....in December(!)



meeting mr. king crab

2009-07-27T12:07:48.045+02:00

We spent a week in North Norway in May/June, visiting some good friends. Every morning we walked from the guest house and to our friends home; from one side to the other of the little town. One day we saw that the fishermen where loading crabs of a boat. And we had to get closer and have a look. It was amazing to see these huge crabs up close, MT got a little bit scared of their long legs, though....

So whit this I give you the LO (mentioned below) I was supposed to finish in a few vacation nights.... I got it finished today a couple of weeks after I got it started:

journal:
It was so fun and special looking at these huge crabs while the fishermen loaded them of the boat. Will you hold one? the fisherman asked MT. NO! MT screamed. The crabs were just too big and too alive!

This was the second of my CT-assignment for the month of July. I worked on the kit Ocean Dreams by Chris Greiser (image linked to shop; right now on sale for $3)

summer scrapping thoughts and a LO

2009-07-26T22:58:45.304+02:00

Brought my laptop with me on vacation expected to do some scrapping in the evening and night. But didn't do much more than read email, update facebook and twitter + read favorite blogs (scrapping one as well as family and friends). One of the first evenings I got started on a LO, but I have still to finish it (will do tonight, though - look for a new post later).

We got home Thursday morning after driving all night. After some sleep and a not so much productive day I've slowly gotten my LO and projects together. I've still a few things to fix before work starts on Tuesday - but I'm planning to get there....tomorrow I'm off to buy some more ink to my printer and a few more heavy weight card stock to get my December Daily album ready (EARLY!!) - can't wait to fill it with photos and words. Thanks to Janet and The Daily Digi for inspiring me :D

But for this post I wanted to show you my first page of Summer Highlights (I'm planning to make the second in September adding the late summer photos - it will be a super two page spread with a quick look on what happened the summer of 2009):

Just a couple of recent layouts to show you. I try to scrap one LO each day, but this week I haven't been much productive. But I made this from MT's first bath of the season. It was so cold - but he was super happy for it still; what is it with children and water?!? ;)

Then there is this simple, but heart felt LO, I made last week with photo from our trip to North Norway a couple of weeks ago (we had such a great time there will be several layouts with photos from that short vacation - in the last post I used a few in the LO's of Tuesday and Saturday). This is also in answer to a challenge, this time at Catscrap.

project 365 - january month scrapped

2009-06-13T13:48:17.625+02:00

I got a bit frustrated with me not being able to get the project-365 photos edited and scrapped. So I made a template for a whole month full of photos. That did the trick. I got inspired again. And I LOVE how the month of January came out:Credits: elements and papers from Photogenic by Paislee Press and Audacious designs; template by meMy plan is to use the same kit (I love this kit, perfect for project 365 and so beautiful!!) for all the months - as well as the template I made - only to use different background pages and move the month name around a bit.... We'll see how it works ;)If you want the template - let me know! :DI'm thinking of making it a freebie.....[...]



May CT layouts

2009-06-12T10:49:50.476+02:00

I've been busy with work, vacation and scrapping lately. My house is suffering, but in a couple of weeks my summer vacation will start - so then I have all day to clean. LOL. I guess I'm going to scrap and take photos all day long.... Ahem. Anyway.I want to show off the last two LO's I did as a CT at Pretty Scrappy (May assignment):The first one I did with creations by Rachael's kit My Little Artist. I love the feel of this kit and the alpha is one of my favorites.I used my own template (I'm still in a boxy mood) and photos I've been dying to scrap for so long.Click image for credits :)From Scrappy Shannon I got a Christmas kit to work on; Let us Adore Him.Although it's not in season at the moment it's a cute and sweet kit. I especially loved all the manger images (or how to put it in English).I have a bunch of photos from past Christmases to scrap, but I opted for the tree (once again). I love how it shines and for me it's hard to celebrate the season without it (not impossible, though). I guess it has something to do with the time of year where it's so little light during the day, we go out of the door while it's still dark outside and when we are back home it's dark again.....Click the image for credits. And then I'll better start working on the assignment for June!!! :DIf you love to scrap and would like to be a CT I believe that there still is an opening at Pretty Scrappy, just follow this link and see if there is room for one more.[...]

But first let me tell you that the June collab from Pretty Scrappy is out (have been out for a while, ahem) - Fun in the Sun. It's a happy and fun summer kit, filled with vibrant colors. And this is how it looks like:

layouts + a winner!

2009-05-23T15:01:54.018+02:00

It's been some busy days lately in my real life so I'm just now getting around to posting my recent layouts and the winner for my challenge (last week). Yay!Layouts (for credits click at the images):I joined in on the chat with Amanda of Taylor Made designs yesterday. It was fun and very new to me - but I think I will try it out again ;) In the chat she had a challenge for us and I made this LO:Amanda wanted us to focus on the use of blending modes and she linked us with this tutorial. It was so fun, I don't do this very often - at least not on photos (I love to bled papers!!). Here is my original photo:First I made this:Using these blending modes:o. original1. screen2. multiply 90%3. soft light (black-white)4. screen (sepia)5. soft light (sepia)6. overlay (sepia)Then I made this - my favorite:Using these blending modes:1. filled the background with light-blue color2. color dodge3. screen4. overlay5. vivid light6. saturation (black and white)7. soft lightWhen I put together the layout I originally wanted to use the original photo, but I ended up changing it up a bit (using blending modes that I can't remember) and making it black and white... It took me some time to get the layout together, but I'm so pleased with the result!! Thanks for the challenge Amanda - and for the freebies as well!!Then I made this for her other challenge at Catscrap:SpotlightThis week Fei-Fei stuff's is in the spotlight at Oscraps, she gave us freebies and the full tilt challenge (it lasts till Sunday so why not join in on the fun!!). I made two LO's using her fantastic tilted templates:And finally over to the winnerof my challenge!I love how you used my template Natacha! Thanks for joining in and please send me an email to limeblog (here you put in the at) gmail.com and let me know where you want to spend the $4 price - and I'll send you a giftcard from that shop! You might be the only one entering my challenge - but I love how you dressed it non the less!!The image is linked, please jump over to her gallery and give her some love and see credits for the papers and elements :DI'm now putting a password to my template, send me an email (address above) if you want it ;) And if anyone use it (it's been downloaded 250 times so I guess someone is using it...) - please let me now!![...]



free block template + a challenge!

2009-05-08T11:39:46.998+02:00

As you can see from my latest scrapbook pages I've hit a boxy nerve. I just can't stop using the blocks for my layout (or so it seems). As a result I decided to make my own templates from scratch just to satisfy my need for squares(!) lol.

Then I thought it would be fun to share - and to make it a challenge! If you - download the template below, make it your own, upload it to your favorite gallery and then return back here no later than May 15th (midnight) - I'll enter you in a drawing of $4 to spend at your digi scrapbook shop of choice.

Seems like fun?! I hope so! Can't wait to see your take on it!!

Here is one of the two layouts I made with this template (the other one is a few posts down - and is the very first LO I made using my own template - that was kind of special!):

speed scrapping again

2009-05-06T23:21:57.389+02:00

Super fun with Speed Scraps at Scrapmatters two days in a row :D
Almost pulled a scrapping muscle there, but I dragged my self over the finish line. And this is what I made:

Yesterday:

elements and papers from Troublemaker by Flergs; alpha from After School by Lynne-Marie; template by me

journal:
Last summer we went in several stores looking for a small skate board for MT. But everyone was sold out. In the end we gave up and I think MT forgot that he wanted it sooooo badly. The snow board he got for Christmas helped probably... But when I looked fo
r a small extra gift for his birthday I found it: a skate board in his size. He was so happy and have been trying it ever since. Like everything else it's not as easy to jump and ...... as he thinks so right now he's a bit upset with it. But I'm sure he's going to pick it up again soon - practice makes master!

Today:

papers and elements from In the Neighborhood by Casey Krause; string and staple by Britt-ish design; template by me


Journal: I love watching how spring takes over and chasing the winter away. This year it came early.

(image) This last one was one of my ct-assignment at Pretty Scrappy this month. Orginally I fell for the bold colors and the drawings, but in the end I used a couple of white papers and very few elements... ooops. The alpha is gorgeous, though.



MT and Bea

2009-05-05T15:47:27.950+02:00

Bea is one of our good friends from back where we used to live 1.5 years ago, she is also one of MT's godparents. We don't see her as often as we wish, but this weekend we spend a few days together.

Journal: This weekend our good friend Bea came to stay with us. It was so nice to catch up, celebrate birthdays, drink coffee and just hang out together. I shot a few photos of Bea and MT, this one is my favorite. I love MT's half smile and the way Bea looks at him. So much humor and love there!
As you can see; I'm still testing out my block templates ;)
