Welcome to our 67th movie challenge where this week's featured movie is the 2006 film Tristan & Isolde, which is similar to Romeo and Juliet and was originally an opera created by Richard Wagner. We love featuring movies that are both extreme box office hits, as well as quiet films that have a beautiful story. This film is a beautiful love story (albeit a romantic tragedy - but so lovely) and if you do watch it on DVD, check out the story of the screen writer and how he translates his dream into reality - very inspiring. You can also watch the whole movie on Youtube if you haven't seen it before (its divided into 12 parts). Our dear guest designer today, Amy Park, gave us the challenge to create a card with a gatefold/or trifold look to it (**if you are not going to make a card, you can use an interesting kind of fold or opening in your creation). There are a lot of different gates, hidden passages in this movie, and this challenge requirement is a tribute to that. Here are some more ideas from the Cinema Inspiration Corner for this weeks movie!

To watch it on Youtube - here is the link for Part 1 (divided into 12 parts/segments total)

Brooke's Card inspired by the movie Tristan and Isolde:
Ok. I have to say I got totally sucked into this movie.. I was looking for a quote that would summarize this movie in one statement, so I did a little YouTube of this move and I was instantly hooked. I left the main computer and grabbed the laptop and headed down to my crafty place. I watched EVERY scene of this movie and it all felt so familiar but new at the same time. The last time I watched this movie I was on my way to England (ironically) and was trying to rest. The lady who was sitting next to me yacked the whole time. Now don't get me wrong; I can talk as well as anyone or better but it was LATE and I had taken half a sleeping pill to be able to rest. So watching it again made me feel like I had found an old friend with this movie.
Thanks for the Gatefold suggestion Amy I was so fun to create this card.. A huge thanks to Amy for being our guess designer. I love to see all of your many creations. I get to so excited when I see you name on mister linky...
On this card I have one very unique element can you guess what it is?
Come visit me on my blog and see what it is. Don't forget to leave me some love and see the inside of the card...
Sankari's Card inspired by the movie Tristan and Isolde:
This is such a perfect date night movie (except for the romantic tragedy part of it) it has action/battle scenes mixed in with romance and love, something for everyone :) I remember watching this movie and being charmed by all of the small details and so my inspiration came from all the Celtic work on the plates, the armor, the jewelry and I created a gatefold card based on this. I loved watching this movie (not so much the war/violence part - more the beautiful parts :). And especially loved watching the making of this movie, the screenplay writer's vision of this movie - it is so inspiring. Both Tristan and Isolde's love was something so deep and passionate and that which could be felt in the heart:
The sentiment says: "The Best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart." Helen Keller - They both carried each other in their hearts till the end - where she says - "Wherever you go, whatever you see, I will be there with you." Sigh....
I loved creating this little gatefold creation and can't wait to see all of your creations!

Last week, we loved Amy's beautiful creation of a boathouse that she created for the movie challenge Sleepless in Seattle, this week she has created some more papercrafting genius with this lovely creation:
Amy's Card inspired by the movie Tristan and Isolde:
I watched "Tristan and Isolde on YouTube, had never heard of it before, but throughly enjoyed the love story. I think the whole idea of a romantic tragedy applead to me from the lidea of living in the moment. Perhaps never seeing a loved one again to rejoicing in simple reminders until you do meet again. Make sense? This card reminds me of the secret doors fromt he movie & the coral bracelet that Tristan made. I made mind from Flower Soft and a piece of ballet slipper elastic :)
The technique of the faux bois can be found at SCS. Thanks for the fun creative brain stretching exercises. I always have a great time with this challenge & seeing how everyone else interprets.
