Movie Time

Hi blogging friends,

In January, Rochester Rocs held their yearly best local movie theatre contest and I'm thrilled to announce the Star Theatre of Dansville won again!  This hometown theatre first opened their doors on June 4, 1921 showing 35mm black and white silent films.  In the mid 80's the theatre closed and then reopened in 1994 by the 'Schmidt' family (my cousins).  The Star Theatre went from 35mm platter mounted projection to digital projection and Dolby digital surround sound.

Below are some photos of the marquee throughout the years.

and this is what the marquee looks like today ...

The inside of the theatre is gorgeous and has been fully restored.  Let's take a peek ...

I can just see myself watching an old Marilyn Monroe movie on the big screen enjoying some buttery popcorn!

So my card to congratulate Edgar and the team was inspired by the marquee.  I've combined Coredinations Pearls paper with Black Tie Glitter paper and Recollections Cherry.  The banner was created using the Papertrey Ink Notched Star Banner die.  The individual stars were cut from the PTI Seeing Stars dies.

SU's 'That's the Ticket' set came in handy for the movie tickets, which were punched out with the Ticket Duo punch.  I also found some Ideo-ology film strip ribbon, which I fastened to the front using mini star brads.

Congratulations was stamped inside with StazOn Black and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I added a small Star Theatre banner with a glittered star.

A big shout out to the Star Theatre for winning Rochester Rocs!  You have created a wonderful piece of history in downtown Dansville.

Hugs to Chuck, Edgar, Lois & Carl.

Memorial Bookmarks

Hi everyone,

I have something a little different to share with you today.  A friend asked me if I could make him some memorial bookmarks.  After taking a peek at the sample he had, I thought "sure, why not give it a try."  Well, I am very pleased with how they turned out.  

I created a template, inserted the photo, and typed the obituary on the front.  I kept playing around with the fonts until I was satisfied (I'm kind of crazy like that!)

On the back are the dates with a verse.  I added a few white butterflies.

Since I don't have a laminating machine I took a drive over to our local office supply store to have them done.  It only took 4 laminating pouches to do all 12 bookmarks.  Now they will be protected and always look brand new.  What a great way to honor a loved one and cherish the precious memories you once shared!

I packaged them in a pretty glassine bag, which was embossed using a damask embossing folder.

I'm so happy I could help out a co-worker and try something new for a change.  He liked them so much he even sent me flowers  :-)

Thanks for stopping by!

This week I am joining ...
