Cinema Club Scrap Blog Hop

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...

  1. What a super great album you made, Roni! I just love all of it....right up untill the end!

  2. Fantastic project! I like how you created pie-shaped sections t cover the album. And then my jaw really dropped when I saw your adorable gnome card. How clever is that?

  3. Very cute Roni, I especially love the gnome, I love them.

  4. Excellent use of the movie can, and the album is beautiful! Really like all the detail on the cover. And, okay, the gnome is growing on me. Seeing his face in the photo strip makes me smile. What a great use of stamps and ink. Thanks for sharing your creativity!

  5. What a great find on the movie can!! You did a great job with the can and the album, I'm actually glad you left a lot of the can "as is"!

  6. First Roni, that is such a cool find with the film cannister, and I love how you have repurposed it! I love the round shape and all of the stamping you did on this album is awesome! And I love the little gnome card again - the film strip with him peeking out is great! Thanks for sharing.

  7. First of all it's amazing that you had an old movie film can. Then you created this great album to go in it! Super idea! And the gnome -- adorable!!! Have a great day Roni!

  8. I'm drooling over the old movie film can right off the bat also! The album for inside is wonderful, and the can will keep it in good condition no doubt. Also so cute how you have the little gnome face images in the film strip - all SO clever!

  9. Roni, you must have read my mind (or I read yours) about the direction to go in for this month's blog hop. I love that you actually had the canister.. I even looked online to try and purchase one... but ran out of time. Love the circular album! I especially love how you captured the gnome and all his good sides!

  10. This is a wonderful idea for an album. We speak in quotes a lot too and what a wonderful keepsake to document it. You decorations to the album are beautiful and is your gnome. I do look forward to seeing him each month. TFS

  11. You are so lucky to have this from the library and great job with it too, your gnome usage was fabulous too!

  12. This is just too cute! I love it all.

  13. So cool that you have an actual movie reel tin . . . jealous! I love the album you created for the inside, and the Gnome looks right at home, too. TFS!
