Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge # 12 - An Affair to Remember

Good Saturday Everyone,

Hope all of you have had a wonderful holiday week! We have both been enjoying this week spending time with our famillies and feeling thankful for all of life's blessings. Thank you to all who carved some time to play along last week - we hope you will have some time to play along to this Saturday's Cinema pick: An Affair to Remember. This is such a classic classic classic movie! We were so excited to pick this movie for our Cinema Saturday Challenge - it is such a hidden gem of a movie. According to the American Film Institute, this movie is considered to be one of the most romantic movies of all time. This Oscar nominated film, was released in 1957 and stars the ever debonair Cary Grant and beautiful Deborah Kerr. The writing is so quick, charming and brilliant. The style is graceful and elegant and theme is utterly romantic. If you haven't seen this movie - you must! Here are some interesting facts about this movie from IMDb and Wikipedia:

  • References to this movie in Nora Ephron's Sleepless in Seattle (1993), revitalized interest in the film, and led to 2 million additional sales of the 1957 classic on VHS
  • Ingrid Bergman was the first choice to play Terry McKay.
  • Nickie and Terry make their conditional promise to meet in six months at exactly the halfway point of the film (59-1/2 minutes into the 119-minute movie).
  • A Bollywood film with the title Mann (1999) starring Aamir Khan and Manisha Koirala was inspired by this movie.
  • A 1994 remake reverting to the original title of Love Affair was written and interpreted by Warren Beatty, featuring his wife Annette Bening as the female protagonist, and also Katharine Hepburn in a small but pivotal role, which would prove to be her last screen appearance.

Sankari's An Affair to Remember inspired cards:

This is one of my father's favorite movies! I remember watching this when I was little with my dad - although back then I missed some of the meaning of the dialogue. He was totally excited that we were doing this movie this week - we had a lovely talk about our favorite scenes from this moive and then we got into a whole conversation about the best Cary Grant movies :)

This week, we are visitng my in-laws for Christmas vacation and I had a chance to watch this movie again with my mother-in-law and father-in-law. We are all just absolute fans of Cary Grant - that man defines elegance and grace - he is just classic. I loved sitting and watching this with my in-laws and sighing here and there at the same time with my MIL - by the end of the movie - we were both crying (even my FIL had a little tear)... sigh - i just love this movie!
Watching it again - I forgot how brilliant the dialogue is - it is so humorous and savy and this movie is full of very very smart writing. I love Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr's back and forth banter - so cute and clever and charming. I had so many ideas for making a card - but the two that I picked were inspired by 1) the fact that they both agreed to meet at the Empire State building 6 months later and 2) the song called: TomorrowLand.

The first card is inspired by the 6 month meeting place of the Empire State building. Deborah Kerr exclaims that the Empire State building is so tall that it is the closest thing to heaven. I wrote the sentiment: You were heaven sent" inspired by this part of the movie (Sketch inspired by Jen del Muro). (Anthonette - I think we were channeling the same wavelength - LOL!)

I also loved the song Tomorrowland - it was so sweet and the lyrics are just too sweet. The handwritten senitment: "May your troubles, like bubbles, vanish in the air" are the actual lyrics from the movie. I used bubble wrap over the DP in this card to represent the bubbles from the lyrics of the song....( on a sidenote, doesn't popping packing bubbles always help one's problems vanish into the air?) - (this sketch was inspired by Kazan)

I totally had so much fun watching this movie again with my in-laws and talking about it with my dad. I had a few more ideas for cards in my head inspired by this movie. We are leaving from Minneapolis tomorrow - so when I get back to my little craft corner maybe I will try to make some more cards :)


Now we are honored to introduce some very special guest designers for this saturday's Cinema pick. For the Sound of Music Cinema Saturday Challenge, we were unable to pick between Anthonette's lovely card and Samantha's lovely card. So we asked them both to be guest designers for this week's challenge. We were so happy that they both said yes! and that they were able to carve sometime out in their busy holiday program to play along with us and create these lovely creations:

Here is Samantha's beautiful card inspired by An Affair to Remember:

Samantha writes:

"First of all, I feel so honoured to have been asked to create a card for this week's Cinema Saturday Creative huge thanks go to Sankari and Brooke for asking me :-). It almost turned into a drama of epic proportions. I've never seen the movie (yes, I live in a cave) so I zipped down to the local Civic Video store and tried to borrow it. No luck! They didn't have it. I then looked online to see if I could borrow it through iTunes. Again, no luck...they didn't have it either. Starting to feel a tad deseperate I checked YouTube hoping some naughty person had posted it....ARGHHHHHHHHH, no luck! I was starting to wave goodbye to my first-ever guest designer appearance.

On Christmas eve, I bit the bullet and headed down to the mall in a last ditch effort to find it. I went to luck, luck, luck, luck. I was hyperventilating (along with all the other last minute Christmas shoppers ;-). My last stop was Kmart...I was feeling defeated. I was flicking through the racks without enthusiasm, already composing my tragic email to Sankari in my head. I was so absorbed in my defeat I actually flicked right past the movie and had to go back to it! EUREKA!! I did a little happy dance right there in the aisle....a bit of Christmas eve entertainment for the security camera dude :-).
Now, before you get tired of all my is my card. I think you can guess where my inspiration comes from.

I have used Stampin' Up!'s 'Boatloads of Love' boat stamp set to recreate the seen through a porthole (created using Spellbinders Nestabilities circles and my Cuttlebug). I've decked the boat out with a love theme...of course. Perfect for Valentine's Day!
The boat has been watercoloured with Classic ink and an aquapainter. I have used some retired Designer Series Paper to cover the heart and then painted it with Crystal Effects. I have also added Crystal Effects onto the water and fenders for some added texture. I have used white Liquid Applique on the exhaust cloud above the stack and I have recreated portholes on the Constitution using eyelets."

Please check out Samantha's blog for more details. I love your epic story of this card - you totally get the prize for most determined ever! Your card is beautiful - love this idea and love the eyelets and the romantic nautical feel from the boatloads of love set!!! Thank you so much for being our guest designer Samantha!

Here is Anthonette's beautiful card inspired by An Affair to Remember:

Anthonette writes:

Here's my card and the inspiration for my "You are My Love Affair to Remember" card:

This is one of my favorite vintage movies. I've seen it several times. I LOVE Cary Grant movies and I love Deborah Kerr. I must admit that I saw "Sleepless in Seattle" first when it was released in 1993. I loved how they weaved in the story about meeting on the roof of the Empire State Building just like Nickie and Terry. The building plays such a prominent role in both movies that I had to use the image of the Empire State Building as my inspiration for this card. I got the image from this site.

A little over 9 years ago, one of my sisters and I took my parents on a Mediterranean cruise. We had an overnight stop New York (we were actually staying close to the JFK airport). My sister is pretty adventurous. My dad stayed back in the hotel. My mom, my sister, and I ventured off in the subway and made our way to Manhattan (my sister is the only one who had been to the city before while she attended Cornell University). Our destination...the Empire State Building! We had a great time. The problem was getting back to our hotel. It was almost midnight, so the subway became a little scary. At one point, we were convinced we were being followed by some young men. I though we were going to be mugged. Whew...we got back safely. Seeing NY city from the top of the Empire State Building was worth all the effort.

Please check out Anthonette's blog for more details. I love your story Anthonette and your card is just beautiful - love that sentiment - it is perfect! Thank you so much for being our guest designer Anthonette!

Friday Sneak Peek -

We hope you all had a very merry Christmas. We both did... We are in different parts of the United States and both up to our eyeballs in SNOW.. Nothing like a white Christmas to make your heart smile.... For this weeks' presentation we ask that you all try to guess using your best resource - "YOU" - and maybe a family member or sweetie pie... If you have to use modern technology please don't post your guess until after 10:00 p.m. We just love hearing all the completely random guesses, but the technological methods of taking short cuts really takes some of the fun away...

Until tomorrow..
Lots of warm snow coats and hot chocolate hugs

to Keith....

Keith is Sankari's sweet husband..

Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge # 11 - It's a Wonderful Life

We are so excited to present to you Frank Capra's 1946 Oscar nominated classic: "It's a Wonderful Life"  for this week's Cinema Saturday Challenge. And even though we tried to trick you showing you a colorized pic of this classic black and white movie - you guys still guessed it. This picture that was colorized was made for a contest to colorized black and white pictures. The link for where this picture came from is here.

This is such a wonderful  and inspiring movie about love, friendship and the power that each of us has on making the lives of each other better and richer. This film was rated as the NUMBER ONE most inspiring film by the American Film Institute - that is pretty amazing! Here are some fun facts about It's a Wonderful Life from Wikipedia:
- the role was originally written with Cary Grant in mind
- this is Donna Reed's first starring role - Ginger Rogers was offered this role, but turned it down!
- Vincent Price was considered for the role of Mr. Potter
- This Christmas classic was filmed during a heat wave!!
- Frank Capra invented a new way to give the illusion of snow - before that they painted cornflakes white and dropped them!
Check out more fun facts here!
Okay - onto the cards for this week's Cinema Saturday pick!

This is the Link that inspired me:

Clarence gets his wings...

I just love it when everything finally makes sense to George... He really get his sense of self worth. We realizes how many people love and respect him.  All the people in the town including his family are willing to make a sacrifice to help him out.. So the letter from Clarence just sums it up for me:

A true friend won't leave you when times are hard.. They rise to lift you up... I challenge you all to find someone how could use a little holiday cheer and earn yourself some wings..

Merry Christmas 

I have so many favorite parts of this movie: the gym scene where they are all dancing, George and Mary falling in love, George meeting Clarence, George realizing his impact on all those around him and how the community comes forth to rally around them - but my favorite part is ZuZu's line "Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings." Just love it - because she is just so darn cute, and George holding her with his family near the Christmas tree saying that always makes me smile - you can watch the ending of this movie with this scene in it here:
Even after seeing this movie so many times growing up - I loved watching it again - man - it is such a good movie. Jimmy Stewart is awesome and Donna Reed - is just so beautiful! My parents and I used to watch this movie growing up around the Christmas season - they are visiting us right now - and so it was fun to watch this with them and remember my childhood. 
I love the message that each of us has such power in all that we do and say and to never feel like we haven't made a difference. I just want to thank all of you that I have met through this site for inspiring and encouraging me - you guys are just too sweet!! Thank you so much for coming over here and playing along in our challenges - we have so much fun doing these and hope you do too!!

Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge - # 10 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Good Saturday morning!!! Can you believe that we are on Challenge #10 already!!! WOW!

This week's movie pick is .... Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (also known as the Philosopher's stone) (the images for the challenge pic can be found here and here). We have to say that we are BEYOND impressed with your guessing abilities! You guys are waaaay tooo good! Even after Brooke snapped the picture from off the TV - you guys still guessed it - wow!

Well, we were excited to do the Harry Potter movies - they are so fun and imaginative. We thought that we could just focus on the first one (maybe do the others later) so that if someone just wanted to focus on some of the elements from the first movie they could - or if they wanted to do some general themes from Harry Potter they could too.

The Harry Potter series is based on the seven best selling novels by JK Rowling as she details the journey of young Harry Potter (from age 11 to age 18) and his journey at the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry, the adventures with his friends who become like his family and his realization of who he is and his place in the world.

This magical series is being translated into the silver screen with the first Harry Potter released 2001. Its beautiful to watch this series not only to see how the books get translated into a movie - but also to see these characters literally grow in front of you - its amazing to look at the pictures of these kids from the first movie to the movie that is currently going to be released. The first time this movie was ever shown on T.V. was at Christmas time now it's a tradition in America to broadcast it every year.

Brooke's Card:

When the Harry Potter book first came out my children where so much younger.. My Husband read then aloud to all the family every night... My Daughter was only about 2 so she really didn't get a lost out of the story just the experience... One of the best moments was when we left the movie theater and the boys said to me "The Book is so much better than the movie" YES!!! We succeeded! Now my oldest son will re-read a book over and over... He also said I would rather wait for ever and watch it in a mini-series so I could see more... We always got so excited to receive the new book in the mail.. I will post a picture of us the day we got a Harry Potter book in the mail on my blog... I will also post the many pictures of us are the Harry clan over the years...

The card I made for this challenge is for my Brother-in-law's birthday party this sunday... So I tried to make it a little less sparkly and a little more monochromatic... It's also the first time I have ever used This Papertry owl set I have had sense the first release of it... Sad but true... I really enjoyed using it... I will have to break into my other sets that are still un-used.

Merry Christmas

Sankari's Card:

I love the Harry Potter series and the films as well - and I can't even tell you how many ideas were running around in my head - it was so hard to choose one theme - oh my gosh - you could go nuts --- there is just so much to choose from!

The theme that I went with - was that of discovery - the first book is all about discovery to me - Harry's journey to discover who his parent's really were - who he really is and his entry into a whole new magical world. I was inspired to make this card from thinking of opening a door into a different world - and so the door on the outside of the card is opens and the inside of the door (where there is a pic of a hand holding a wand says: Magic Awaits...) the whole card then opens up - and the inside of the card reads: Hope your New Year is filled with Magic! I love these Harry Potter books (as soon as I would get my hands on a copy - I had to read the whole thing - it was impossible to put it down :) Its been so great to see these movies and watch Harry, Hermione and Ron grow up in front us on the screen. Love reading and seeing all the adventures that they find themselves in - and in this book - I love how JKR shows the reader this whole new world that Harry is entering into.

Hope that all of you are enjoying the holiday season!
Best wishes to all,
Sankari :)

So are you all ready to come along and play !!!?! All you have to do is: Create a card, scrapbook layout or altered project that is inspired by the first Harry Potter movie and upload it and link it to our blog by Thursday 9pm PST.

Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge # 9 - The Sound of Music

It's time for another Cinema Saturday Challenge!! This week our movie pick is the musical by Rodgers and Hammerstein: The Sound of Music! YAY!!!! You guys are really the hardest crowd to stump - you all totally knew what the sneak peek picture was - but it was great to read all your guesses!!! You are all just the best! This musical was translated into the silver screen in 1965, six years after it opened on Broadway. This movie musical has won 5 Oscars, including best picture! It is such a classic and has since then become one of the most famous movie musicals world wide. You can read more about this movie here on Wikipedia.

Here are some interesting trivia of The Sound of Music take from the IMDB website
  • "The Sound of Music is of only 4 productions to win both the Best Play Tony (1960) and the Best Picture Oscar (1965). The other 3 are My Fair Lady (1957/1964), A Man For All Seasons (1962/1966) and Amadeus (1981/1984).
  • When the Best Picture Oscar went to The Sound of Music (1965) (April 18, 1966), it was the first time the Academy Awards had ever been broadcast in color (ABC TV)
  • Director Robert Wise considered Yul Brynner for the role of Captain Von Trapp.
  • During the filming of the opening shot of Julie Andrews taken from a helicopter, Julie Andrews relates that although she tried digging her heels into the ground and bracing herself, on every take she was knocked over by the powerful helicopter downdraft. After more than a dozen takes, she attempted to hand-signal to Robert Wise to have the helicopter make a wider pass, but the response she got was a thumbs-up - he was finally satisfied with the shot."
Both Brooke and I love this movie and loved that this is something that we could watch with our kids -its such a great family movie. And we had fun singing some of the musical numbers from when we were talking on the phone :) Here are our "Sound of Music" Cinema inspired cards and projects:

Here is Brooke's Card:
Check out my blog to find out where I got my inspiration...  

Random thought about what I learned about this movie:

Did you know that one the the Von Trapp children in the movie was played by Heather Menzines who is the later Robert Urich Wife...  The lived here is Utah when he was alive.. I read an article about Marie Von Trapp and learned that the real Marie was not so sweet and kind.. I was quite the opposite.. I think I had heard that years ago it rang a bell or two.. 

I was looking at loads of pictures on the internet getting ready for the release of this challenge and I had know Idea that Edelweiss was so fussy or "soft" as they sing about... I just pictured soft and white meaning delicate not literally fuzzy..  I also read that Maria was married in the late 20"s so they live in Austria for almost 10 years before they had to escape from the war. 
Happy Creating

Here is Sankari's Project Inspired by the song "These are a few of my Favorite Things":

I have watched this musical I don't know how many times growing up... more than 25 times easily :) For me personally, this movie brings back so many childhood memories. I remember my cousin singing the song "Edelweiss" to me - I was seven years old - she was 6 and had the sweetest voice ever! I have loved that song ever since - and every time I hear it - I can also hear my cousins voice singing it... I had dialogs memorized and the songs totally memorized as well - although my singing ability was far from great :)

I couldn't decide which direction to go - but finally landed on creating a little birthday gift for my husband from the song: "My Favorite Things". I loved this song growing up and it was fun to watch this with my son and see his enjoyment of this and all the other songs. Since this was inspired by the song of favorite things.. I gathered some favorite memories to put together for my husband. This wooden box was given to me by my father-in-law years ago when we first go married. It has since then held our spare keys, change and little kinck knacks.... I thought that it would be nice to have this box , house our favorite memories. I covered the box in shades of the blue and green that are inspired by the Sound of Music - love the shades of the blue and green of the hills alive with music :) - this paper is from K & Co.

The top half of the box has pictures of our children punched out in 1/4" circle and then popped up on dimensionals. The picture of our son holding his sister after we brought her home, has her little bangle adorning the picture - I can't believe that she wore that. There is a bell that I adhered with metal glue on the top panel also - I got this beautiful bell when I was visiting the
Forbidden City in Beiging. The ringing of the bell is supposed to bring good wishes to your surroundings... and the kinda cool part is that every time the box is opened - it rings the bell :) The bottom half contains a mini scrapbook that I created for him with forgotten pics of our kids, my son's handprint and artwork and little love note for his heart from mine. It also has a few sentimental memorablia, like a special rock that we picked up in India and a beaded necklace that was dipped in the Ganges. I hope he will like it - his birthday is still 2 weeks away - the key now is to make sure he doesn't read this and that my son won't reveal the secret birthday present hiding spot to him :)


The first of every month we are featuring a Guest Designer spot to showcase their Cinema Inspired Creations. This weelk we are especially excited because we have a very special Guest Designer: Amy Park from Tethered 2 Home. Amy has been such a wonderful inspiration for us - she has been playing along from the beginning of the Cinema Saturday Challenges and comments of everyone's contributions as well. She is always so hard to stump with her Sneak Peek guessing - and she is always right and always makes her card from the sneak peek that she posts her card seconds after the challenge is posted. She is a wonderful artiste and her creations are beautiful.

Here is Amy's beautiful card:

Amy writes: " This first card is a mirror of those "curtain play clothes" that Maria made for the Von Trapp children. I made the card & was asking myself who on earth would I give a card like this to & then I hand wrote in "Hang in there" for a buddy of mine who is going through the rollercoaster of selling her home to buy another. Ahhhh. Anyways, I'm not overly fond of my chicken scratch handwriting, but the phrase fit."

Here is Amy's second card inspired by the song: " Sixteen going on Seventeen."

Amy writes: "The second card is my absolute FAVORITE scene in the movie, that I watched over & over again. Liesl meeting her beau by the gazebo. {sigh} I wanted that dress & it was so sweet. Loved it."

Thank you so much Amy for being our Guest Designer! You are a wonderful inspiration to us!

So are you all ready to come along and play!!! All you have to do is:
