Paper Parasol Basket

I couldn’t pass up the fun to partake in the 100th Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge!  I remember when I saw the first challenge & was inspired to craft!

Pride & Prejudice, with a bit of lace!  Gotcha!

A really fast one for me, just a period style Parasol basket!

To fit in some small chocolates or goodies.

That’s all, thanks for the fun!

Booksmarks: a quick gift

I have missed quite a few of the challenges from Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge.  Not for lack of want, it’s just been so insane with full time school, full time everything.  Incase you’re wondering … 6 classes, 3 hours each + homework/tests, which always seems to take way longer.  Trying to reconnect with my advertising roots, but in the ePublishing side of things.  What can I say, it seemed like a good idea at the time.

I needed a wee break in the craft room today just to take a break & Cinema’s Challenge, #98, was just the thing.

I made a very quick bookmark, inspired by the “Midsummer Night’s Dream” play in the movie.  I love giving bookmarks.  They’re such a quick gift you can stick in a card & always used.

I used an embossed felt from Createology (Michaels).  The texture is wonderful in your hands.

Be sure to check out other fun interpretations at Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge.

Gotta go, the dog is a complete mud pup from romping around the yard with the neighbour dog.

Hard Knock Life

So, I’m pretty sure I’m past the deadline, but it’s Thursday here & here’s my go with Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #93, Annie.  Such fun songs in that musical & this was my favourite song of the movie.  It’s drawn up in illustrator using Clarendon Type.  Quick & simple & great for a friend who’s having a rough day.

Just had to have some quick fun with this challenge because, when I was about my DD’s age, Annie was the big musical.  Here is an ancient photo of in a ballet adaptation of Annie. LOL.  I love musicals!

Not Unnoticed

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.

Holiday Stars

I went with a quick card for this week for the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, #87, The Holiday …

Here’s where the inspiration came from.  I’d link in the video here, but if you start watching the movie midway through, it ruins it.

here’s the inside of the trifold card …

The papers are from Stampin’ Up!, (ink Cameo Coral) as well as the Star Punches & the sentiment (Quick & Cute), the eyelettes are from Making Memories.


The Creative Challenge this week, Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge#83, had a bit of a Guy Feel to it & I always have difficulty with Guy/Boy cards, but I gave it a go.

The bag template is a Freebie from Adela & you can find it over at Paper Craft Planet’s 3D Tuesday Group!  Look at the bottom, under  Attachments & you’ll find the link to the

I do love repurposing stamps so I used the sentiment from a valentine stamp & coloured it with marker for the ’sent with love’.  The Golf T is a retired SU! stamps set called ‘Have a Ball’, the dsp is from Chatter Box Inc called Billiard Argyle (2 sided paper)

The tools I used to make the golf ball, besides the glossy white paper were …

Girly Box

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 :D

Fast Lane

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.

Morning Coat Tag

Time for Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, #80, Becoming Jane.

I wasn’t sure what to make for this challenge, but I ended up with a wine tag.  Lots of impromptu parties this time of year & always good to have on hand.

Could you tell what it was??? It’s a Tuxedo Morning Coat (is that what you call it?), a period piece guy’s coat.

The ribbon is just gathered with a straight stitch.  Easy Peasy.

Here’s what I drew, which I actually roughly traced from a photo of Colin Firth from Pride & Prejudice.  Here’s my sketch:

Those High Heels

Time for Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, #76, North By Northwest.

Great movie.  We’ve seen it a few times, just one of those classic Hitchcock movies.  Cary Grant & Eva Marie Saint–aren’t they just the most cool fashion-stylin’ actors?  Just screaming vogue.  For my card, this is the snippit from the movie that I took my inspiration, specifically Eva Marie Saint’s shoes.

I am not a shoe person, really, I wear birk’s all summer long, but I did have a pair of these shoes for my high school prom.  Italian, spent $90 on them, on sale, over 20 years ago.  I loved them.  They were identical to Eva Marie’s.

Sure Cuts a Lot Software has been so much fun for me.  I drew up a shoe in illustrator, saved it as an SVG & then used SCAL Software to talk to my little Cricut machine.  It was cut out on white & then Versa marked & embossed in Black EP.  I suppose my card is more of a Cut Out, rather than a piercing; hopefully it’s still okay I played along.  I did have fun with it.  Here’s my card:

Before drawing up the shoe, I took a peek of what was already out there & here are some examples I looked at.  Hope you can find some inspiration with these shoe cards too:

Making Greeting


Shirleys Cards

My Sheri Cards


The card is layered a little to give it depth & strength.  I think there are actually 5 layered cuts of the shoe.

The Pattered Papers is DSP from Stampin’ Up.  A Little Love SU Stamp Set was used in Riding Hood Red Ink & oval punches.

Thanks for the fun inspiration, Cinema folks!

Here’s the shoe I drew …

Oh yes, & here I am in the fancy prom dress & pearls my mum bought for me, earrings my cousin Cheryl gave me, updo salon hair, Brooke Shields eyebrows & my shoes that I oh so loved in 1990 …
