all smiles :)

Still enjoying the beauty of autumn here in Oslo.
Love to hang on to summer, sun and flowers as long as possible - the winter will be long and cold, and these last warm days when we are still able to be outdoor in the garden, having lunch or a cup of tea outside and embrace the low sunbeams are precious.
Some of the flowers are still beautiful, while other are getting ready to their long winter-sleep.

Eirik - the outdoor guy - he loves doing things in the garden or around the house.
:) Today "101 ways to use your scrapbook supplies" special issue of Creating keepsakes with Jennifer McGuire arrived at my doorstep.
I was SO honored and happy to find my layout Sol@7 in this magazine.
I'm all smiles

a beautiful day in september

Hi all.
Today was a wonderful sunny day in Oslo, just the way we like fall, with beautiful colors, crisp air and sunshine.
A perfect day for a lunch trip in our old wooden boat before it gets to "sleep" for the winter.
We went to one of these little islands in the inner Oslofjord. Enjoyed the last warm sunbeams and a delicious lunch with foccaccia, ham, cheese and wine.
Today was my last blogpost at "my Stamp BOX" blog. This design-team term ends oct. 1st, and I have decided, after three terms on this gorgeous team I have to step down, make room for new designers and give my self the opporttunity to find new paths.
I have really enjoyed the time with my Stamp BOX. Bettina creates so beautiful, versatile and fun stamps, and her company is so great, and last but not least, the girls at the design team are all wonderful, talented and super inspiring women. I'll miss it all!
Here is the fall layout I created using my all time favorite mSB-stamp-set " floating leaves". LOVE this set, and it must be the stamp set I have used the most ever.
I also used "just add notes" set and "symbols". Love these. :)

There and back again ...

Hi my friends.
Back home after the most wonderful journey.
I tell you, my trip to Mykonos, Greece was SO exciting and wondferful.
Being able to meet people that are SO dedicated to scrapbooking and photography, talking to people from so many places, create together with people that love to create as much as I do.
Meet friends, get new friends, stay at a beautiful hotel, getting the best service and food ever ... just feeling good
being able to teach amongst the most well known scrapbooking teachers and most incredibly talented people.
I was SO honored to have my little mini clas, teaching the girls my 3ndypapir minialbum.
And as I LOVE to teach this was a wonderful experience.
My first time teaching in english ...
all the ladies and boy :) attending my class were all pure kindness :) and we had great fun. :) You can find more pictures and a written step-by-step instruction on this album at the 3ndypapir blog

I'll be back soon with some of the projects I created at the event too :)

some fancy love :)

Just wanted to share two layouts I created during the weekend.
The Trøndersaksa event was filled with lots of inspiration, challenges, contests and so on.
I really had a blast creating among so many friends.
I've used some of my all time favorite fancy Pants papers.
Love these papers, they are just too yummy (and so are the rubons too :) )

On this layout the background paper is by Studio Calico.
Love their lines and their beautiful monthly kits :) :)
patterned paper and cut-out sentiment by Fancy pants.
butterflies by prima.

Have a great day you all!

Happy and colorful

Hi all.
It has been a wonderful, sunny week in oslo this early september.
Love these warm, beautiful days in the beginning of fall, when it's still a little bit left of the summer.

I have been playing with my Little Shoebox papers lately. LOVE these colorful, happy papers. They always seems to make me smile - and spark my creative mind :)

Yesterday was my first day at the MLS blog.
WOW, I feel SO honored to be a part of this wonderful team :) :)

I made these little notebooks for my girls using the oh so cute "summer breeze" line.
just have to love the little birds. :)

Had to make a layout about my little cupcake maker too :)
the super-cute banners was perfect for this layout. :)
I was SO happy to get TWO wonderful punches by fiskars ( the little daisy punch, and the beautiful border punch) to use on the books and the layout as well. :)

The rest of this week will probably be über-busy ( so please forgive me if I'm not much around on my blog) with packing and shipping the new 3ndypapir christmas line to all the shops around Norway, Sweeden, the Netherlands......and everywhere else...
I will also get ready for my two classes in Trondheim this upcoming weekend at Trøndersaksa (a local crop / gathering).
I'm so looking forward to go to Trondeim - I'm sure it will be LOTS of fun :) :)

Happy week
