Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #50 - PRETTY WOMAN - with special guest designer Gina K!


Good Morning Everyone!!!!!

Welcome to our 50th Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge where this week's movie is the 1990 Oscar nominated movie Pretty Woman. And today we have a very special Guest Designer (drum roll please :) Gina K. from Gina K Designs! I can't even tell you HOW excited we were when Gina agreed to be our guest designer for our 50th movie challenge and I am telling you she is just the sweetest person ever! This week, Gina has picked our movie: Pretty Woman and the challenge that she has picked to go with it is paper piecing!!!

What inspires you when you watch the movie - is it the clothes, the music, the dialogue, the themes? Whatever it is that inspires you from this movie - we can't wait to see your take on it as you create a card - just add some paper piecing to it!!

This 50th challenge is pretty special as it all started as an idea last fall. And then I remember calling Brooke (who was one of my blog buddies that I met doing another challenge site :) and we totally connected over our love of movies :) So I am so thankful to have created this challenge site with one of my best friends (who I can't wait to meet someday!) and also for all of YOU for keeping us going and playing along. You have really become part of our Cinema family! We love guessing the Friday sneak peeks with you (and you guys are SOOO good!!! I don't know HOW you guess it from these small crops that Brooke does!!! That is why they are so small because you guys are SO good!! I remember that is why at one point we were cropping pictures of grass and clouds from the movies - and you guys would STILL guess the right movie!!! WOW!) We are so thankful for YOU! And also want to welcome all the new faces!!! Please join us this week as we celebrate 50 challenges!!!!! And there is some FANTASTIC BLOG CANDY that Gina is offering that you don't want to miss!!!!! (more on that towards the end!)
Here are our cards inspired by the movie Pretty Woman: We are so thankful to Gina for letting us use her BEAUTIFUL stamps for this week's card creations! Thank you GK!!! And we welcome Jackie Wilcox as our guest designer this week for her beautiful card from Challenge #48 movie: School of Rock! We are so grateful to have you on board!!! yay!!!



I have only seen this movie on t.v. and ages ago.. So when I read up on all the in's and out's of this movie on I.M.D.B. there were lots of comments about how it's was a modern version of Cinderella so I thought that the sentiment.. "You're the fairest of them all" sounded very princess-like even if it's a Snow White quote... I {HEART} the little lipstick and nail polish Adorable... hand to add them to the card..

When I think of this movie Julia Roberts's brown with white polka-dots comes straight to mind.. I remember how much everyone was a buzz about how great that dress was.. So when Gina told us she would love to have the technique be "paper Piecing" that juts straight to my mind.. If you want to see the card I made with my interoperation of that great dress you will have to come visit me on my blog... Let me know what you think...


A HUGE thanks to Gina for joining us this week. We have enjoyed chatting on the phone with you as we have prepared for this week. What a truly sweet person you really are.. So kind, generous and thoughtful. We are so proud to call you friend.

We have seen a TON of new faces that have joined us from Gina blog.. We would love to have you all join our weekly challenges and become part of our challenge family... We have really created some amazing friendships through our challenges and hope to share our joy of creating with others...

I hope you all have a GREAT time creating a card/project that is inspired and reflects the movie "Pretty Woman".

p.s. Don't forget to go back to the sneak Peek post and see the un-cropped pictures... :)

HUGS
BROOKE


I love this movie (isn't Roy Orbison's song in your head RIGHT NOW??!!) And I especially LOVE Julia's smile and the way that she discovers who she really is, what she wants and how to make her dreams come true. I love the shopping scene where she and Richard Gere connect begin their falling in love-ness. I created a little Boutique, inspired by Rupa Shevde's stamp set for Gina K. called: Retro Boutique. I love this set full of all kinds of shopping yumminess that I wish were in my closet right now!!! I chose the sentiment : Celebrate in Style! to celebrate our 50th challenge and to celebrate following your dreams which is one of the themes from the movie!

For more information on this card and details. Please stop by my blog!
Thank you so much everyone for all your support during these 50 challenges and here's wishing many more challenges to come!!!
A huge thanks and big hugs to Gina for your support, encouragement and amazing generosity!!! Thank you so much!!!
Big hugs!
Sankari :)



We are so excited to have Gina as our Guest Designer for our 50th Anniversary! Check out her beautiful card and her wonderful inspiration of her card:

"One of the things I really liked about the movie Pretty Woman was when the main character, played by Julia Roberts begins to realize that she is worth so much more than the profession she has chosen. As she dresses up in more elegant and respectable clothing and spends more time with the man who cares for the woman she is inside, she begins to respect herself more. And when that starts to happen, she becomes even more beautiful!"

You have to stop by Gina's blog to see more pics of this AMAZINGLy beautiful card and all the details on it!!!. Thank you so much Gina for helping us celebrate our 50th challenge!!!

Last week, we were wowed by Jackie's card Rock to the Music card that she made for challenge #48's movie School of Rock and as the Audrey Winner for the movie challenge, we are SOOO excited that this week, she joins us as our guest designer for Pretty Woman:


I took my inspiration from the major changes in Vivian's and Edward's lives. Their meeting was a fluke...he was looking for Beverly Hills and she was looking for a "date". During the time they spent together, they helped each other look into themselves and make the changes necessary to have a happier life. The centerpiece of my card is two paper pieced butterflies, a true symbol of change.
For more details, please stop by Jackie's blog: Grammie Loves! Thank you so much Jackie for being one of our guest designers today! Your card is so beautiful and totally is a symbol of the change and beauty within us all!!!

Well - at least I had the right male star in my guess - Richard Gere! lol (I guessed Nights in Rodanthe). I'm so glad you asked GinaK to guest design for this - or who knows how long it would have been before I found this. Totally FUN concept ladies - THANKS for bringing a very different and fun kind of inspiration into the paper-crafting world. I hope I'll get to play along. I've bookmarked you now in any case! :)

Woo Hoo Can't believe it's been 50! Such fun challenges. I'm off on a little vacation (yes, I asked that we have internet access in the hotel, is that bad?), but will try to squeeze in time to make a pierced card after we get back & before Thursday.

The Bug said...

What a great concept! I just found your blog today and decided to jump right in. I have posted my project and included a link with Mr. Linky. I was inspired by Julia's red dress. I hope you enjoy.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Linda said...

I think I linked my card that is in Gina K's gallery on her stamptv site. Not sure if I did it right. But I am excited to see all the creations. I was very inspired by the Pretty Woman theme. I loved that movie and Julia Roberts is my favorite actress. I made the card based on the ending when Richard Gere delivers flowers to Julia on the balcony .. she is a princess afterall.

How fun! I have been wanting to do this challenge for a while now. Pretty Woman hit me just right, except I did miss the paper piecing... I went with simply elegant, just like Vivian when she came out of her shell.

Last night when I posted, you hadn't reached 50 and I thought to myself -- you've gotta have 50 for your 50th -- so I did another card -- but I shouldn't have worried because I am a last minute person and so surely there are lots of others who are too to make you 50 ++! I've had a lot of fun with this one -- but the song won't leave me alone!

Michelle said...

My first paper-pieced card ever! And I had to pick a stamp with such teeny tiny flowers to cut out and paste, haha. But the tub stamp was the perfect choice for this movie. :) Congrats on your 50th Challenge. I'm so glad Gina directed me to you blog.

Here’s a list of tools you will need to start: Jewelers’ pandora jewellery wire cutters - If you can only afford one pair, get memory wire shears. pandora charms These are designed to make clean cuts on tough memory wire, so can also be used for pandora charms uk softer wires. Chain-nose pliers sometimes called cheap pandora charms needle-nose pliers – Very versatile for picking up and grasping small items, pandora charms sale bending eye pins, closing jumps rings, even closing crimp beads. discount pandora charms Round-nose pliers – Used for creating loops on beaded head and eye pins. Can also be used for winding your own jump rings and as the second pliers you’cheap pandora ll need for closing jump rings. Optional pliers – Wire-looping pliers which have several graduated circumferences to allow you to form perfectly uniform jump rings and loops in place of the pandora discount uk round-nose pliers mentioned above. Crimping pliers which have little notches to allow you to both flatten a crimp bead and then bend it to form a rounded finished look instead of the flat crimp you pandora uk get using the chain-nose pliers.

Other than that, let your choice of project be your guide. You might want some silver or pewter charms.
