Making a Paper Frame

Well, I’m home with the 3 kids today, no day camps, no cottages, no buddies around, & a generally rainy day. Think of me will ya. The boys are making paper airplanes & Emma is drawing. I squeezed out a quick hour in the craft room to have a go with two challenges in 1. (Paper Craft Planet’s 3D Tuesday & Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge!)

The 3D Challenge, from Tammy, for 3D72, “You’ve Been Framed”.

This frame is made out of paper, using a template I found from the very clever Inna of Inna’s Creations.

The owl ‘Spin a mood’ in the middle, reminded me of those casino roulette tables that James Bond plays, so that’s where the second Challenge from Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge comes in CSCC89, Casino Royale! I don’t think the Flower is much of a silhouette, but I’m hoping I still kinda’ hit the challenge.

Be sure to check out other frame examples over at Paper Craft Planet!


This week’s Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, #79, is New Moon.  I haven’t seen this movie so the card was a bit hard for me to make.  I did google it & found this image, which I took a spin on.  I’m not sure if that is from the book or a movie poster.

Not sure how I feel about the card, but it was fun to play around in illustrator & some silvery Tsukineko Dew Drop Inks for the moon, as well as Tim Holtz Crackle Paint & Stampin’ Up Shimmer Paint.

Happy HSM

Okay so Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #37 is High School Musical!

The following is a questionnaire to fill out if you are not sure if you have a HSM Fanatic in your home.  NB:  This could also be used interchangeably with the Jonas Bro’s.

Have we seen it:  Yes.

Gone to theatre release:  Yes.

Do we own all the DVD’s:  Yes.

Do we own the Music CD’s:  Yes.

Do we have a 9 going on 10 year old Daughter:  Yes.

Does she own a massive poster of HSM in her room:  Yes.

Is the the second card I made for this challenge, because the first “basketball card” was rejected as ‘not High School Musical Enough?”:  YES.

My oldest, my DD actually wanted me to get all the neighbourhood kids to jump in the air, take a picture & make a scrapbook page.  I might actually have to do that, now that it’s in her brain.

Here’s my our card:

Used:  Yoho Yellow Textured CS, Ridinghood Red CS, Cricut Machine, Mini Monograms Cartridge, Creative Memories Gold Pen, Yellow Highliter, Stapler, Velour Fabric.

Coffee Filtered Rose

Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, #36!   Beauty & the Beast.  I had the privilege of finding out the movie ahead of time & guest for the super fun Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge!!! Can you tell I was excited to be asked?  

Being 30-something, I didn’t see this movie as a child, but my oldest daughter went through the disney stage & yes we own the DVD.  I do love musicals and this movie came rushing back into my head with images of the enchanted rose.  That & humming “be our guest” each time I’ve set the table this week.  

 I’ve been wanting to try this Coffee Filter technique I saw over at Martha for over a year now & this was a great excuse to try it.  I used Copic Markers, instead of water colour paints.  I think I would use paint next time, because now I have to buy refills for my Copic Markers.  Not the end of the world, but it uses a lot of ink.  Here’s my go at making a “rose card”.  

The Petals of the flower, after painted (or markered in this case) need to be curled into a point.  See Video instructions.  

You wouldn’t be able to put this into a regular envelope.  Honestly, I can’t take a good picture of it, but the technique is just so cool, because it really does turn out like a real rose.  

Used:  Always Artichoke DSP, Always Artichoke CS, Martha Stewart Satin Putty Ribbon, Eight #4 White Paper Coffee Filters, Copic Markers:  R59 Cardinal & E07 Light Mahogany, Bamboo Skewer (to curl edges of flowers into a point), Martha Stewart Doily Edge Punch, Flower Wire for Stem, Super Sticky Tape, Template from Cassie Chappell, as seen on Martha Stewart.

That Do.

Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #35 this week is “Some Like It Hot“.  I saw this on TV when I was a teenager & I remember thinking how Airy Marilyn Monroe spoke & how goofy men looked dressed up as 1950’s women.  A Classic none the less & a great pic for a challenge.  Anyways with this great knowledge under my belt I had some super fun with the card.

Firstly, it has been proven on many occasion, that I cannot draw.   (Yearly demonstrated at the Annual Pictionary Game at the Neighbours at New Year’s Eve Party after 4 glasses of wine)  But I can TRACE!  

I printed out a picture of Marilyn Monroe & then used my light table to Copic her Hair onto Water Colour Paper with Y21 Buttercup Yellow & then took my Embossing tool to trace over the highlights.  Then I took my White Gel Pen & simply coloured in the grooves that my Embosser made.  The Lips, ya, well it’s a chopped up puffy heart sticker from EK Success & a bead put on with Glossy Accents Glue for the beauty mark.  I gathered the Offray 1 1/2″ Red Ribbon, by a straight stitch in the sewing maching & then just pulling one of the strings to gather it.  Happy Birthday is just one of those Catch phrases from Marilyn.  

Thanks for the fun!

Used:  Lots of Thoughts Stamp Set, Basic Black Marker, Uniball White Gel Pen, So Saffron CS, Basic Grey CS, Offray Ribbon, Sewing Machine, Thread, Copic Marker Y21 Buttercup Yellow, Real Red SU Marker, Dimensionals, EK Success Puffy Heart Sticker, Black Bead, Fiskars Trimmer, Water Colour Paper.

Flashy Stars

Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, # 34 is Ocean’s 11 … 

I’ve seen both the original & the George Clooney one.  Besides Sami Davis’ E-O 11 Song, I totally preferred the newer version.  Kickin’ soundtrack too.  :)

Here’s the images I went with to make my craft:

I wanted to make a Star Gift Book for the longest time.  I think I first saw it like 5 years ago, can’t remember, but I know it seemed quite daunting a task.  I came across this tutorial, by Kristina Werner, & Bob’s yur uncle.  It was quite straight forward.  

Here’s my Star Book, all folded up.  I used Rhinestones, which are kinda like brads?  :) Sorry if that’s cheating, for the element challenge twist, but I didn’t have enough Rhinestone Brads, so I switched just to plain Rhinestones. 

And here it is, ready to add pics & journaling.  I doesn’t look like Kristina’s so I must have messed up somewhere, but it looks like a star to me :)  First go, next time, I’ll try do to it without helpers.  I know I keep saying that, & it never happens.

The biggest pet peeve for me, was that I didn’t have double sided PP that I liked (sorry somewhere my DH is laughing hysterically).  So I glued a bunch of this cheapy single sided paper from a Michaels Bargain Bin together. So that was like 16 pieces of individual papers glued to gether to make 8 double sided papers.

Then onto the plethora amount of Super Sticky Red Sided tape that was needed to glue along the edges …  

and ya keep tapin’ along, just follow Kristina’s directions

Don’t forget to mitre the edges of the front & back cover … 

So that it has a (relatively) clean look … 

And that’s all.  

Used:  Michaels PP (Paperbilities Autumn Leaves Kaleidoscope Printed Paper), Cereal board, Instructions from Kristina, Orange Offray 5/8″ Ribbon, Super Sticky Tape (like have 2 rolls of it ready), Momenta Puffy Alpha Stickers, Rhinestones, Glossy Accents Glue, Riddinghood Red CS, White CS.


Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #33 & “Any Winged Thing” Challenge on Stamping Out Alzheimer’s week long site!  Two in one, baby!

I thought for the Cinderella Story, I would use Drew’s dress as the inspiration to make a card.

Here’s my go:

Used:  Dazzlin’ diamonds Glitter, Heat & Stick Powder, Versa Mark Ink, Dimensionals, Diamond Stickers, Pearl Stickers, Tim Holtz Grunge Board Flourish, Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink, Tim Holtz Visual Artistry Acrylic Stamps, Martha Stewart Doily Edge Punch, White EP, Clear EP, Corner Rounder, Oval Nestabilities used in Cuttlebug Machine, Tim Holtz Distress crackle Paint Picket Fence, Vanilla CS, White Cs, Vellum, Ranger Ink Distressing Tool, Water Colour Paper Bienfang Canvasette 170lb.

Cool Down Fan.

Well, I must admit, I hadn’t a clue & didn’t even hazard a guess with the Cinema Saturday Sneak Peaks.  This week’s CS Creative Challenge 32, was Twilight.  

My DD (9) had wanted to watch this with a friend & I hadn’t watched it or read the book (yes, I know, I’ve been under a rock for the past year) I told Emma-Sian she’d have to wait so I could check out the movie first.  When this challenge came up, I thought well now is a good time as any, so I hit YouTube & watched a poor quality version of it.  Wow.  Wow.  HSM it’s not.  Um ya, not really for 9 year olds IMO.  Nothing explicit at all, but it is a HOT movie, so suggestive.  Anyways.  For this HOT HOT movie I made a fan to cool down.  

The parameters of the challenge was Red, Black & Sparkly & something to do with the movie.  Well it’s red & black & sparkly.  

I didn’t follow a template to the letter (printer issues), but this is where I got the idea.  

I used a Cuttle Bug Embossing folder, Mod Podge Glossy Glaze, & “some” Dazzlin’ Diamonds Glitter. It folds up easily with a brad at the base.  

The punch is the Retired Wrought Iron Punch (with the bottom removed).  

Used:  Really Red CS, Wrought Iron Punch, Black CS, Cuttle Bug Embossing Folder (Used in Sizzix Machine), Coluzzle Round Cutter, Black Cross Stitch Embroidery Floss, Craft Embellishements, Dazzlin’ Diamonds Glitter, Mod Podge, Rhine Stone Brad, Circle Punch.

Great Comforter

This week’s Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, CSCC31, is Steel Magnolias!   A great pick for Mother-Daughter Movie!

This is one of those kleenex box movies, laughing & crying.  A great hormonal release LOL.  There are so many memorable scenes from this movie that it was hard to choose something to go with for a theme.  

I chose to hand write (yes, in my chicken scratch, so I’ll translate for ya!) a verse from Matthew 28:20.  ”And surely I am with you always to the very end of age”.  I find that Verse quite comforting and reminded of the deep sorrow in the movie and how you can be comforted in all situations.  

The texture on the tree is called Sweet Pea Flower Soft.  It’s kinda like a rubbery foam, I guess.  It comes in a tone of colours (this is Sweet Pea) & is like flocking.  It’s just a little container, but I think it’ll last me years.  You don’t need very much. When I was at Heather’s Stamping Haven, Heather told me to try it with their High Tack PVA Glue.  It dries clear, but when I took this picture, it was still wet.  

Used:  Brown Embossing Powder (SU retired), Versa mark Ink, Flower-Soft Snow Peas, Flower Soft PVA Glue, Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, Always Artichoke DSP, Kraft CS, Mat Pack & Piercer, Crafts Ribbon, Bible.

It’s a Jolly ‘oliday.

I was trying to get the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge done before the last minute Thursday deadline for a change!  This week’s CSCC#30 was Mary Poppins!  

I thought I’d try to do something with Dick Van Dyke’s lovable character, Bert.  I think he had orange & red in that pin stripe suit, but you get the idea.  I had some fabric laying around (oooo somewhere DH is shuttering, as ’some’ is a bit of an understatement).  I serged up a bow tie … & before you roll your eyes, it is SO EASY to make, honestly.  When my oldest son was young, he used to love bow ties & even my daughter I’d make hair bands with bows in them.  They have grown out of that & Liam is more into a traditional tie.  

Oh yes, the stitching part of the challenge, well there is some faux stitching there & some real stitching it’s just hidden.  ;)

Thanks for the fun, ladies!  Can’t believe it’s been 30 of these challenges.  Wow.  

Used:  DCWV Christmas Stack PP (from Micheals), Fabric & Serger, Ballet Blue Ink, Ballet Blue CS, White CS, Say it With Scallops Stamp, Bravo Burgandy Marker, Dimensionals, Creative Memories Square Punch.
