I was so excited when I found out the theme for this months Club Scrap kit...Cinema. I was even more excited when I read one of the stamps in the kit.... "I speak fluently in movie quotes.". This describes our family perfectly! We do speak fluently in movie quotes so I thought I'd make an album to document our favorite movies and movie quotes.
So, I had this fun 16mm movie canister that I spiced up with a few select rubber stamps. It was an old movie from a library that was going to discard it... Of course I couldn't let that happen so I snagged it. I had thought about cleaning off the old labels but I liked the "used" look where some were torn off so I went with it.
I used the tape for the edge of the canister to cover up some of the labels with the name of the original movie on it. Worked perfectly - it fit exactly!
Inside is there the album will be stored!
Here is the front cover. It's a combination of the plain blue cardstock, movie reels cut from one of the prints and lots and lots of fun stamped images. The projector is showing the current movie (which is a piece of vellum). I edged the reels and "movie shadow" with gelatos.
A closer look of the stamping.
And the first page will tell a bit about what is "playing". The blue movie reel pulls out and opens up for a bit of journaling which is where I'm going to explain what's inside.
This is one of the pages I've added inside. I need to stamp a few more images and attach them to the glassine envies. Inside is a little card which will hold list of our favorites - both movies and quotes.
Here's the last page of the album...
I can't wait to start filling it with our favorites lists!
And I couldn't forget our gnomie friend....
He's ready for his close-up!
Hope you've enjoyed my project...
