Over at Serenity Scrappers, the ladies have a fun challenge going on. You have to make a scrapbook page with a family fun theme (something you and your family enjoy doing) and use a tool, embellishment, or technique that you haven't used in a while. You can find their blog here: http://serenityscrappers.blogspot.com/
I was thinking about all of the things my family likes to do, and going to the movies is a big favorite for us and has always been. Me and my hubby are both movie lovers and when we started dating we went to see about everything that came out. I used to work at the movie theater when I was in high school and we would go see movies sometimes two and three nights a week during the summer months. I always keep our movie stubs and I thought it would be fun to pull out some of the older ones from when we were dating and some newer ones and make a layout using them. I also wanted to incorporate some movie posters on the layout, so I printed out some movies we like to add as well. (I have a ton of more ticket stubs, so maybe I can come up with some more projects to use those for.)
Here are the details:
Popcorn Bucket: Carousel Cricut Lite Cartridge
Flicks Sign: Nifty Fifties Cartridge (added red skittles to the sign)
Popcorn Pieces: George and Basic Shapes (welded three circles together with Gypsy)
For my technique that I haven't used in a while, I used white puffy paint and a heat gun to add texture to my popcorn and make it look more realistic. I haven't used this technique since I made my Christmas cards last year. It works great to make real looking snow.
To add the texture to the popcorn, you just need Tulip Brand puffy paint and a heat gun.
