Digital Scrapbooking | June 2013

I can hardly understand it, but this is the last day of the month – how did it get here this fast?! As usual I want to share with you a couple of Digital Scrapbook layouts done for the Daily Digi with the files for this month. I’m a part of the team there, thankfully! These days I don’t scrapbook much else, but being a part of the team I get to scrap at least two each and every month.

This one was prompted by some disturbing news about the house we are renting and thoughts about the future, not all changes are bad ones – even though it didn’t look good in the beginning! But, off course, they take some time getting used too:

The kits theme inspired me to look for beach photos and I found this gem from 2009:

Since I did not post my layouts in May, I’ll add them here – the kits are now not for sale at the daily digi but they can be found in the designers own stores for individual purchases.

Favorite instagram photos from the lake last year:

That was all I had to share this time. July is right around the corner and soon new designers and new kits will be revealed at the daily digi – and new layouts for me to share here. Wishing you all a wonderful summer!

Thanks for looking. See you around!

Digital Scrapbooking | March-13

I’m still scrapping happily away. Not as many pages a month as I might wish, but at least a few. I especially love to play with colors. This is one of my favorite ways to relax and enjoy all the good things in our life. Small stuff and bigger happenings. Here are a few made for March 2013 edition of the digi files:

Winter Moments Credits: Papers and elements from Through the viewfinder. Font: Soymilk
Words: Winter has it’s moments. I enjoy it with my phone in hand snapping photos of the beauty I see. Coffee does help too. sunshine and coffee makes winter so much easier to handle. – photos snapped at the farm when I visited for a few minutes a Saturday; January 5th 2013

Three Wheel Joy Credits: Papers and elements from Love Story by Wild Blueberry ink. Fonts: EM Photogram and DJB Liz
Words: Talk about getting happy! You got to borrow L’s three-wheel bike and off you went, swinging and turning like a little mad-man. D joined in and you two made a contest of it, look how you turn your head to see behind you – you surely wanted to be the first. Thankfully you guys let L bike for a while also, even though she’s not in the photo. You friends sure know how to have fun together! (24. feb 2006)

Here are a couple more of my favorite layouts from February and January (please click the images for description and credits):

A Long For The Western Country

A Long For The Western Country

It’s been a few years since I lived in the Western part of Norway and I quite love living close to family, but still sometimes I long for the fjord, the mountain and the people of the West.

Especially this summer. When we haven’t traveled over the mountains to meet our friends, when it’s been raining like the west here in the east all summer long, when I haven’t had a ferry ride in ages and when I’ve been fortuned enough to have friends come and visit us – making me miss living close to them ever more.

A Long For The Western Country

This is the last page I’m posting for one of Shimelle’s challenges. It’s been so fun making all these and joining in on the fun at Shimelle’s site (as much as I managed during a busy weekend + week at work). This page is for the Half Page challenge.

A Long For The Western Country

It’s been a scrappy kind of day today, I’m having the weekend off and spent most of my day yesterday moving stuff from our old house. Today I’ve just done whatever I wanted (= a lot of scrapbooking) and relaxed together with MT. Trying to recharge for a busy week ahead.

So, did you manage to enter Shimelle’s challenges?

Maybe you don’t scrap as much as I, but I do hope you share your stories. At least a few of them. Maybe capturing your every day life with your camera?! We forget so much so fast and I’m so glad for the moments I’ve shared here, in my photos or in one of my scrapbook pages. And yet there are so much more to tell! See you soon!

Soria Moria

Soria Moria

As I started this page I planned on using far more Hot Pink that I ended up using. I will still post it for Shimelle’s Hot Pink Challenge, because it was there it started :D

Soria Moria

Soria Moria

I love the mood of this photo of a place I lived for a couple of years (almost ten years ago now), the photo is not sharp by any means but it has a fairytale quality. At least to me. It’s taken late in the evening, the sunset is giving everything a tint of pink. I love how the road gives my eyes a path to travel; to the timber house where I used to live for a few years ten or so years ago.

Made with papers and embellishments from recent Studio Calico kits.


I have one more layout to share. Look for a new post soon!

The Cows

The Cows

For Shimelle’s 3 Is A Magic Number I scrapped a few photos from when we had cows on the farm back home. I used 3 tags as my three embellishment grouped together, that’s also where I put my journaling.

The Cows

The Cows

After 20 years without animals we had some cows for a couple of years at the farm. I liked that so much – and do hope we don’t have to wait another 20 years before there are animals on the farm again (it might not be cows, but still).

Papers and embellishments from recent Studio Calico kits.

Goodlooking People (of the Mountain)

Goodlooking People (of the Mountain)

It was so much fun finding these photos again, I just had to scrap them! Good thing Shimelle has a perfect challenge for this: Let’s Go Retro Challenge.

Goodlooking People (of the Mountain)

Goodlooking People (of the Mountain)

I remember our trips to our shabby cabin up on the mountain back when I was a teenager. Sometimes we were only two going up, other times we were several. Every time we had great fun and lots of laughs.

The mountain is a great place to be, I feel so free there, here we have walked up from our cabin and are enjoying the view. And look at our smashing style. LOL. Late 1980s.

Rain Summer

rain summer 2011

Just when I had put my finishing touches on my Saturday Feeling layout using a grid design, Shimelle announced that her next challenge was a Grid It Up challenge. So here I am with another grid and I have to admit I love using grids on my layouts :) I did not opt for her double page example, though.

rain summer 2011

rain summer 2011

I still had a few iPhone images laying around and they were perfect for this layout all about the massive rain we’ve been having this summer. It’s been totally crazy with rain almost every day. I got out my mothers old blue type writer for the journaling. It’s so fun to use it, but my fingers hurt after just a few sentences and mistakes are bound to happen.

I placed the word(s) summer rain on the left side and the word(s) rain summer 2011 on the other side since as I’ve been longing for some sprinkling summer rain instead for the rain summer we been having. Sigh.

I loved the bold colors. Everything is from recent Studio Calico kit(s) + stamp by Ali Edwards.

Next up some old memories :)
