So this is a challenge for this week’s Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, #92, Napoleon Dynamite. To be completely honest, I have not seen the movie. I have seen clips of the movie, where he’s dancing on the stage. So I guess that’s where I was going with this interpretation … dancing…music…piano? Bad segway, but there ya go.
My card on the front, probably THE most plain card I have ever made.
Inside, it’s a Piano Pop UP Gift Card Pocket card! Whew, that was a mouthful.
Gift Card for coffee, baby!
The template is from Extreme Cards! No special cutters used, just an exacto knife & a ruler. Straight lines & the template. I did have some problems (as you can see) with Black Embossing Powder going EVERYWHERE. What a mess. I did my best to cover up the mess with brown CS.
You can still see a bit, but it is what it is.
And it POPS UP! Too much fun!
I was checking out this week’s Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, #91, and the movie was Gandhi. Ben Kingsley, acting as Gandhi, was completely convincing. I wasn’t sure what do to with this challenge, so I decided to focus only on the sentiment, to encourage serving & volunteering.
Sometimes the most difficult cards for me to do are the simplest cards, kwim? I print out this sentiment, then just used a scoring board (my Martha Stewart one, which I find so easy to use), and this is what I came up with. I think I might use it as an encouragement card for my DD, who has been helping me out with some non-paid chores around the house much more then her younger brothers. I want her to know it doesn’t go unnoticed.
Just having some fun with a Kristina Werner (Reader’s Choice !) Colour Inspiration, #4. I LOVED the photo that Laura had submitted, what a photographer. Gorgeous picture of a jelly fish & a fantastic jumping off for a colour inspiration.
That’s all, thanks for the fun!

Time for a challenge from The Cinema Saturday Creative Folks. This week, #82 is the 2010 movie of Alice in Wonderland. I really wanted to make a teapot for this one, but I can’t wrap my head around the template that I have in my brain. I have a request into a friend who is a template making guru, so I’m hoping she can make it. IN the mean time, I just made a VERY quick dress favour Box in illustrator & cut out on my small Cricut machine with the help of Sure Cuts a Lot Software.
Nothing fancy, but I think it would be cute for bridal showers or a little girls party.
For now, I just put in a bit of … what else … tea.
Here’s the template, if you want. 2 of my 3 kids think it looks more like a bear or mickey mouse ears, but they’re tough on me at times. My middle son thought it definitely looked like a dress … Somebody’s getting a raise in their allowance
I really wanted to have some fun with the Everything But the Kitchen Sink Challenge … using NAIL Polish. The nail polish I used is my DD’s. She has started convincing me that there are other polishes besides French Mani’s.
I used some grunge board from Tim Holtz & paper from Cosmo Cricket. The Sentiment is SU!
Time for a Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge. This week, #81 is Ferris Bueller’s Day off.
I was playing around with the Cosmo Cricket Get Happy Paper Pack again & some fun in photoshop. I also tried the imagininsce brad maker, but messed up a bit, but have some grace, it was my first try.
The type is called “Coolvetica” & it was just done up quick in CS3. Just having some fun with fonts & colours & a line from the movie.
