My DT Application in a Summer Crush

Hi everyone! 

I have for a long time been a big fan of a blog called Noor! Design ♥ 
Noor! Design has also an online store. Which has its home in England. They have a product line that is truly unique. As a scrapbooker I am so keen on trying all of their products. I get so inspired every time I visit the blog and the online store.

A couple of weeks ago I discovered they were looking for new designers for their already awesome team! I just had to make something and try to apply! I made two boxes using the gorgeous patterned papers from Maja Designs new collection - Summer Crush ♥ 

So this is my DT application for Noor! Design <3

I discovered scrapbooking in November 2013 and it changed my life.

It all began with a few Christmas cards and tags in 2013. During 2014 my talent developed in an incredibly fast pace :)

This has now become me my passion and I spend all my spare time producing paper projects. 
3D projects and special boxes soon became my field of expertise, and creating special new unusual projects. I feel an urge to create things that have never been done before. It makes me excited and time flies by so fast. It is like time does not exist while I am in the zone of creating ♥

From childhood I have always been very creative. I even studied pastry/cakes where I also could use my creativity.
I get inspired by things that surround me, nature, situations,feeling, weather; or ideas just pop up in to my head.

I really admire other scrapbookers and their work. However I never copy their work, I prefer to create something unique. I than truly feel that I am evolving. Pushing my own boundaries. So therefore I challenge myself to make "impossible" paper creations. "Nothing is impossible" is my mantra.

 My main focus is using many different variations of paper, the more layers the merrier! Many details such as ribbons, charms, bling and lots of paper flowers. I can make projects simple but still detailed. My favorite is large detailed projects, my style is mainly shabby chic/vintage.

I often make step by step tutorials on my blog, which people have told me are easy to understand. 

The project I am showing here I think describes me as a scrapbooker. I have made and decorated two boxes. Using a new collection of patterned papers from Maja Design called Summer Crush ♥ These two boxes are a pair, with two different sizes. Different themes and two different color hues.  


The blue box is the biggest of the two. It is mounted with thick cardstock that I colored with white spraypaint. When it was dry I adhered the different patterned papers.

On the outside of the box I have used two different papers. On the lid (top) I have used several different white flowers. I have adhered diecut leaves under the flowers. 

On the sides of the box I have used metal embellishments and diecut butterflies from Noor! Design. And i just LOVE them <3

In every corner I have adhered white half pearls. The box stands on four metal feet and in the front of the box there is a handle. 

When opening the box, the same patterned papers and color tones are found. As on the outside of the box.

On the inside of the lid there is an image of a gorgeous blue car. The same is found on the outside of the boxes lid. 

When I create projects especially boxes; I tend to make a variant that is either smaller or bigger of the original. Like I have done here. 

On this smaller box I have used patterned papers from the same collection as the blue box. Though this is more in reddish tones and the car has been switched with a bicycle.

I have used the same flowers and leaves as on the blue box.

The handle on the front of the box is switched with white half pearls. The image on the lid is of a bicycle with a basket full of flowers.

  This one also has butterflies on the sides, the same metal feet and white half pearls.

When opening the box, an image of two girlfriends with a bicycle appears. Also I have used three butterflies.

On the bottom another bike appears. This time a blue one. I have used some more white half pearls.

Even though these boxes are different in colors and motifs, they have some similarities. That make them fit together. 

If you study the pictures a little closer. You will see that the images on the blue box has images with red tones. The red box has images with blue tones. Do you see the woman's flip flop's and the car on the blue box? Beautiful red tones right!? On the red box there is a wonderful blue bicycle ♥

I have used the same patterned papers on both boxes. It is only the colors that separates them.

The same goes for inside the boxes too ♥

So now you have seen my application.

I truly wish to be a designer for Noor! Design. Scrapbooking is my big passion. I live and breath for creating and pushing my own boundaries. I LOVE your products and what I have seen been created by you and your team. It makes me even more excited and inspired. Your products are amazing and helps me be the best I can in creating new projects. I so wish to be a part of such a wonderful team! 

Today I design for

- a local scrapbooking store in Bodø (were I live).
- A Norwegian producer of scrapbooking products kaBoks.
- A Norwegian challenge blog Nordsalten Hobbyklubb.  

In social media:
  • And Instagram: siljeaunan

Whenever I create a project; I publish it on my blog, then I share it on 10-15 different Facebook groups (also English and American groups). This is because I want to inspire others to make unique projects too <3

I hope you like My DT Application in a Summer Crush <3
